About the movie “40”

One of the most compelling pro-life documentaries ever produced is now available for screenings in theatres, schools, and churches across our nation.  The 40 film, which coincides with the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, highlights well-reasoned and secular arguments against abortion and investigates the effects of abortion in our nation over the last 40 years. The 40 film was an Official Entry in the John Paul II International Film festival in Miami, Florida.

The 40 film gives voice to both sides fairly and lets women speak for themselves through experience on the reasons for their firm convictions about abortion. 40 also addresses some of the strongest arguments for the pro-choice position, and provides heartfelt testimonies from post abortive women and men. 40  captures the impact of abortion on women, men, families and society in an exquisite encounter with human dignity. 40  also showcases the annual March for Life and the youth as the generation that will end abortion. Beautifully shot and eloquently produced, it is a must see for all people, young and old.

“This film is one for the ages, a rare and timeless contribution to this time in history. It should be seen by all people of all persuasions, everyone, and everywhere, without exception.”  – Sheila Liaugminas, Emmy Award winning journalist
