Round II: “The Matter of Life” Documentary Showings
Round II: “The Matter of Life” Documentary Showings
Written By David E. Smith   |   01.30.23
Reading Time: 2 minutes

There are dozens of great pro-life films and documentaries that have been produced over the past several decades, but there is a new one out that we want to make sure is on your “must watch” list. It is called “The Matter of Life,” and it is a powerful and informative documentary about abortion in the United States. In fact, we think it is so important that we are promoting and/or hosting free showings of this film in various locations throughout the state, with the hope that it will initiate other church and private showings. This will include a time for Q & A after the film ends.

The Matter of Life is a wakeup call and a call-to-action. While we praise God for the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, here in Illinois, pro-life advocacy MUST intensify to meet the abortion industry’s expansion and plans to make the Land of Lincoln an abortion destination point.

This documentary, with the help of experts, personal accounts, and plentiful visual aids, explores the political, spiritual, emotional, and physical aspects of abortion. Watch the trailer HERE, then plan to join us at one of the locations listed below. Watch this EWTN 5 minute interview with the producer and director of this film:

“This powerful documentary is edifying and enlightening to understand the Truth of abortion.
Whether you are pro-life or not, please take time to watch this film,
which is recommended for ages 14 years and up.”
~Ricki Giersch, 40 Days for Life Leader in Aurora
