October Baby - Every Life is Beautiful
This leads to my real reason for writing today. I am passionate about unborn babies just as much as babies. I had a miscarriage a little over a year ago and I cried, mourned, and cried some more that I would never meet my little unborn baby. Unborn babies includes babies lost to abortion too. My heart breaks when women feel that their only choice in an unplanned pregnancy is abortion. I wish I could adopt their babies too! But I can't.
I learned about a new movie the other day called October Baby. It's about a young woman who finds out she is adopted and also an abortion survivor. She goes on a road trip to find her birth mother and answers about her past. The trailer makes me cry, and I'm sure the movie will make me cry too. Here is the trailer.
So what I'm really trying to say is this... GO see this movie!!!!! It has a limited release nationwide on March 23. AND it's coming to Pittsburgh on it's opening weekend, and will be playing at Cinemark Robinson Township 16, 2100 Settlers Ridge Center Drive, Robinson Township, PA 15205. If you aren't in Pittsburgh, find a theater near you here. GOOOOOO SEEEEEE IT!!!! When you go to see a movie on it's opening weekend, you are making an impact on the direction of the movie industry with your money. This is a movie that is artistically done, wholesome, family friendly, and about something very important. Tell Hollywood that you would like more movies like it!! And just in case you weren't convinced that telling Hollywood you want wholesome movies is awesome enough, the producers of OCTOBER BABY have assigned 10% of the profits of the movie to the Every Life is Beautiful Fund, which will distribute funds to frontline organizations helping women facing crisis pregnancies, life-affirming adoption agencies, and those caring for orphans. Even more awesome!!
Gianna Jessen, who is herself an abortion survivor, said "I laughed so hard and cried so hard, and healed. Thank you." I'm betting if she laughed and cried, you will too. So GO SEE THIS MOVIE!
UPDATE: OCTOBER BABY will only be in the Cinemark Robinson Township for ONE week!! Just one week to go see this incredible movie!!
