The Matter of Life is what the pro-life movement needs: an intelligent, eminently reasonable and persuasive look at what is really involved in the matter of abortion. Featuring activists who break the sterotypes and pro-life leaders who exude compassion and common sense, it also includes heartwrenching interviews with those who have lived the conflict—women whose pregnancies were traumatic, and an abortionist whose devastating loss after a long career led to a dramatic change of heart. Director Tracy Robinson seeks to get past the wall of division in the culture—baby killers vs. women haters—to the questions that need to be asked. If we agree that in America “We the People” are guaranteed “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” where do the unborn come in? Do they have a right to life? Do we owe them protection?
The Matter of Life has been scheduled for a special engagement in theaters around the country next week, on Monday May 16th, and Tuesday May 17th. Since the Supreme Court leak and subsequent protests, these events have become targets of the furious pro-abortion mob. Lisa Wheeler, whose Carmel Communications is promoting the film, said in a Facebook message:
There is a grassroots effort to cancel The Matter of Life in theaters. At this point, we do not know if it is gaining any traction, but we do know that social media posts labelling the movie as a “forced birth propaganda film” have been spreading. Theaters are now getting calls telling them to cancel the film.The Matter of Life is a pro-love film as much as it is a pro-life film. It steps into the reality of abortion without ever degrading those who support abortion. The film shares truth in love, and cuts through angry rhetoric, revealing a message of care and concern for the unborn and the women who carry them.Presale tickets are the best way to let theaters know that there is a demand for The Matter of Life to be shown. Get your tickets now for May 16th and 17th and make your voice heard that this film’s message is one that needs to be shared.
