LOS ANGELES, California, October 15, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Movie to Movement is a non-profit organization using mass media to promote a culture of life, love and beauty. “The most vulnerable members of the human family were abandoned to violence, and so I wanted to devote my life to defending the vulnerable,” Movie to Movement’s founder and president Jason Jones told LifeSiteNews.
A new documentary just released by Movie to Movement endeavors to reunite Americans, following former NFL tight end and Super Bowl champion Benjamin Watson’s journey to find out the truth about abortion.
For more than a decade, the organization has produced pro-life films like Bella (2006) and Crescendo (2011), which encourage viewers to “stand in solidarity with the most vulnerable people in the world.”
“The best way to promote solidarity is through film and storytelling, because, as film critic Roger Ebert said, films are ‘like a machine that generates empathy,’” Jones explained.
Since its founding, the movement has used film to promote solidarity in action. Movie to Movement sent copies of their award-winning film Bella to crisis pregnancy centers to encourage undecided women to choose life for their babies, and potentially place their babies for adoption.
“The women chose life and to give their babies up for adoption because they empathized with the character Nina, and that was something that the pregnancy centers had really been able to gain before,” Jones said.
In a similar vein, Movie to Movement sponsored a red carpet premiere with celebrities for foster children in Hawaii when they released Running for Grace in 2018.
“At first, the kids didn’t know it was for them. They were afraid to step on the red carpet. But, once they walked on the carpet, they were so excited, “Jones shared. “They posed for pictures on the carpet, and they were really enjoying themselves. We wanted to show them that, one day, they can be a pillar in their community.”
PETITION UPDATE (9/26/2020):
With President Trump's nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we are closer than we have been in decades to seeing Roe vs. Wade overturned.
We now encourage the Senate to confirm Barrett as the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
Judge Barrett has a fantastic track recond on sanctity of life issues, has seven children, and is a devout believer. She is the perfect remedy for Ruth Bader Ginsburg's radical pro-abortionism.

And then, please SIGN this petition telling the High Court that it's now time to end the activist Roe vs. Wade judgment. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (6/29/2020):
In a decision which has imperiled more abortion-minded women, sentenced more preborn to death, and upset pro-lifers across the nation,the United States Supreme Court decided 5-4 to strike down a Louisiana law requiring basic medical precautions in the event of abortion complications, with Chief Justice John Roberts reversing his own past decision to uphold a similar Texas law.
Liberal Justice Stephen Breyer wrote the majority opinion, which held that the Louisiana law was unconstitutional for the simple fact that it was “almost word-for-word identical” to the Texas one the court already struck down in 2016.
In his concurring opinion, Chief Justice Roberts acknowledged that he had “joined the dissent in Whole Woman’s Health and continue to believe that the case was wrongly decided. The question today however is not whether Whole Woman’s Health was right or wrong, but whether to adhere to it in deciding the present case.”
We call on the Supreme Court to stop supporting the culture of death and overturn Roe vs Wade, now.
PETITION UPDATE (1/20/2020):
Hundreds of thousands of people will gather in Washington, D.C., this coming Friday, January 24th, for the March for Life. They will be praying for an end to Roe vs Wade, as the Supreme Court will hear a crucial, abortion-related case later this year in March. United our voices can change the course of history. Sign this petition TODAY! (LEARN MORE BELOW)
PETITION UPDATE (1/3/2020):
In advance of the Supreme Court's hearing arguments in an important abortion case later this year in March, 207 U.S. Senators and Representatives have signed amicus briefs supporting a Louisiana law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital nearby an abortion center.
Some of these supporting briefs also suggest that now is the time to reconsider Roe vs Wade as sound law.
Please SIGN this petition, calling on the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down Roe vs Wade.
More than 60 million Americans have been slaughtered in their mother's wombs as a result of Roe v. Wade. This activist, unconstitutional ruling in 1973 has left countless women emotionally and psychologically scarred.
It was believed by many that Roe would be overturned in 1992 with Planned Parenthood v. Casey. Despite having eight Republican-appointed judges at the time, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to uphold it.
Since then, major gains have been made in the fight for life, and many lives have been saved.
However, Roe v. Wade remains the law of the land, leaving millions of defenseless pre-born children vulnerable to murder.
According to a 2016 study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 35% of aborted babies are African American, despite black women only making up six percent of the U.S. population. 19% of aborted babies are Hispanic.
We thus again call on the court to do everything they can to end Roe vs Wade.
Now is the time for pro-lifers to join together and ensure that all of God's children have a right to life.
Roe v. Wade must come to an end!
FOR MORE INFORMATION:
Just last month, Movie to Movement released their new documentary, Divided Hearts of America, which “seeks to remind our nation that Black lives matter because Black lives are sacred,” Jones said.
“We set out to make the movie two years ago, and we knew that everything would be ripping apart at the seams when we were ready to release it,” he added.
“[The United States] was founded on the dignity and vision of the human person — that man has certain unalienable rights given to us by God … The republic becomes divided when we fail to live up to that founding principle, and it falls when we deny that principle,” he explained.
“Roe v. Wade denied that [founding] principle. Our country can’t stand 40 more years, let alone 3 more years.” Jones further said.
The film endeavors to reunite Americans as it follows Benjamin Watson’s journey to find out the truth about abortion — a heated topic since the Supreme Court issued its 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade, which decriminalized abortion across the nation.
Divided Hearts of America also attempts to answer the question, “Can the most divisive issue of our time actually bring us back together again?”
