U.S. Supreme Court Overturns Roe vs. Wade in Award-Winning Pro-Life Movie

MEDIA ADVISORY, October 6 /Christian Newswire/ -- It is the first Monday in October and a future U.S. Supreme Court tackles the reversal of Roe vs. Wade in a dramatic new pro-life movie, COME WHAT MAY (CWM). The controversial film has received rave reviews from preview audiences nationwide, drawing large crowds in Oregon where 800 moviegoers filled the Grants Pass Performing Arts Center to capacity. Six distributors are vying for CWM, including the company currently distributing the new Christian blockbuster, FIREPROOF.
"What's remarkable is that COME WHAT MAY, a 2008 Redemptive Storyteller Award winner, was largely produced by over 40 homeschooled students mentored by only a handful of professionals," according to Mac Nichols, a tax attorney who plays one of the movie's U.S. Supreme Court Justices.
Advent Film Group (AFG) produced the micro-budget movie in association with Patrick Henry College (PHC), a true-to-life powerhouse in collegiate debate and moot court competition. The movie's legal argument is solid, claims George Escobar, founder of AFG. Dr. Michael Farris, PHC founder and chancellor, wrote the film's legal framework. Farris, a constitutional attorney, has successfully argued before the U.S. Supreme Court.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Roe vs. Wade could hang in the balance if Justices John Paul Stevens, who is 88, or Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 75, were replaced by the next president. It may end the liberal wing majority of the current court. Whoever wins the presidency in 2008 will determine the fate of unborn millions for generations.
The movie's strong appeal and its pending release is providential. "This movie is causing (me) to reconsider (my) position," pro-choice voters are telling AFG after seeing the film. "A national breakout release could happen," Escobar acknowledges. "Eager sponsors are offering to underwrite a major movie event before November 4th."
A OneNewsNow.com reader reports: "COME WHAT MAY is an inspiring and Godly film that has a fresh perspective on our approach to abortion. It is refreshing to see a pro-family, pro-life film that puts priority on purity." Another reader adds, "I have seen this film, and I highly recommend it for its engaging storyline and intriguing rhetoric. No matter what your stance on the issues CWM tackles, you'll be entertained and mentally stimulated! Go with friends and you're sure to be provoked to discussion afterward."
