There’s a powerful new movie coming out that tells the truth about abortion, and honestly portrays the sacrifices made by hard-working volunteers who give of their time to stand outside abortion mills—winter and summer, rain and shine—and offer women better options. Voiceless opens in theaters across America October 7, and you should bring your friends and family to see it.

It’s not like most movies that deal with abortion.

Is Abortion Funny?

America’s media elites want you to think that abortion is harmless and helpful, even funny. Just two months ago, at the end of June, Comedy Central greeted the Supreme Court decision removing basic safety requirements from Texas abortion clinics with a sarcastic Tweet:

Celebrate the #SCOTUS ruling! Go knock someone up in Texas!

— The Daily Show (@TheDailyShow) June 27, 2016

“I have heard firsthand the anguish of women whom men abandoned to face the tragic choice of abortion,” Movie To Movement president Jason Jones said. “Each year our nation sees a million future citizens, doctors, teachers and firefighters thrown away in dumpsters. The fact that The Daily Show thinks this is funny tells us exactly what’s wrong with our culture. And it’s time to fight back. The movie Voiceless does that, rebuking lies with the truth.”

Are Pro-Life Volunteers Bullies?

A month after The Daily Show’s tasteless Tweet, Planned Parenthood created a virtual reality program for the Democratic National Convention that pretended to give a “realistic” simulation of what women face when they approach abortion clinics. Instead of presenting the actual reality of what sidewalk counselors do across America—quietly pray, sing hymns, and sometimes approach women with compassionate abortion alternatives—Planned Parenthood offered a fictitious horror show. As The Daily Signal reported on July 30, 2016:

Pro-life protesters are heard calling the women “whores” and shouting Bible verses, among other aggressive actions. Penny Nance, CEO and president of Concerned Women for America, told The Daily Signal that she personally has watched “kind” and “loving” pro-life activists thoughtfully offer alternatives such as adoption to women considering an abortion.

“I have also stood outside the Supreme Court and watched people from Planned Parenthood shout vile, nasty remarks at pro-lifers. I have literally felt unsafe around them,” Nance said. “So, both sides have a story to tell. It’s never right to be unkind, but Planned Parenthood’s virtual reality has little or nothing to do with reality.”

A Movie That Tells the Truth About America’s Pro-Life Heroes

While Voiceless is a drama, it is based on the powerful truth that thousands of Americans give of their time every day to stand outside the killing centers that mar most U.S. cities, in the hope of helping women avoid a tragic, destructive, and irreversible decision.

Voiceless is set in an American inner-city. Battling his own inner-demons, Jesse (Rusty Joiner: Last Ounce Of Courage, Dodgeball, “Days of Our Lives”) encounters a young, pregnant teen overcome with grief that, after an impulsive abortion, has her family blaming Jesse for more than just her final decision. Jesse’s wife Julia (Jocelyn Cruz: Strike One, This Is Our Time) must come to terms with her own choices and decide if she can support her husband as opposition mounts against him. Comedian Paul Rodriguez also stars as Virgil with James Russo as Pastor Gil.

The winner of multiple awards, Voiceless has been honored as Northeast Film Festival’s Best Feature and People’s Choice for Best Feature Film and Best Feature Film from the California Independent Film Festival.

Jones, executive producer of the influential pro-life movie Bella and producer of Crescendo, is co-executive producer of Voiceless and founder of Movie To Movement. He knows the power of film to change culture. Bella inspired countless women to make the choice to keep their baby — over 1,000 women wrote the producers sharing their stories. Jones’ short film Crescendo, thanks to the tireless work of executive producer Pattie Mallette, raised more than $6 million for pregnancy centers, and launched a national conversation on the importance of such alternatives to abortion.

Said Jones:

Inch by inch, we are fighting to take back our country’s culture from the abortion industry and their surrogates in the mainstream media by supporting filmmakers who strive to tell the truth about love and life. We must help those battling bravely in the legislatures and courts by reshaping the national discourse about love and life. That’s what forms the minds of the voters, the legislators, and the judges of the future.

Voiceless is a call to the church. Now more than ever as we see no relief from our judiciary or legislative branches, the church must stand up and take a leadership role in protecting the vulnerable. We are issuing an urgent call to churches and church leaders to recommit themselves to protecting the sanctity of life.

We want to bring Voiceless to every city in America. To do that, we need the help of those who care about unborn children and their mothers as much as we do.”
