On the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Right to Life was restored by the Supreme Court. In future years, the anniversary of this historic occasion will coincide with the Feast of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist.  Let us rejoice in the Sanctity of Human Life, from the moment of conception to the moment of natural death. As faithful Christians, we continue to reach out in charity to all people who are living, in respect to their natural needs as well as for their need of eternal salvation in Jesus Christ our Lord and God!

America, your deepest identity and truest character as a nation is revealed in the position you take towards the human person. The ultimate test of your greatness is the way you treat every human being, but especially the weakest and most defenseless ones. The best traditions of your land presume respect for those who cannot defend themselves. If you want equal justice for all, and true freedom and lasting peace, then, America, defend life!

Divided Hearts of America

A million-dollar budget isn’t much for Hollywood, but Benjamin Watson is hoping that it’s enough to tell a story and bring empathy to a hot-button topic.  Venturing onto a new field, the New England Patriot’s tight end has executive-produced and partially self-financed Divided Hearts of America, a look at the debate around abortion in America. 

The film is structured around a series of more than 30 interviews with Americans holding opinions from all over the political and social spectrum. Most notably, the film includes interviews with Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and former presidential candidate and neurosurgeon Ben Carson. 

When questioned about his motivation for the film, Watson describes his goal as “… to unveil the truth about abortion, the laws, the history and where our country is headed. I believe in the sanctity of life, be it in the womb or on your deathbed. That’s my conviction.  But with the film, I’ll engage those who disagree and hear their reasoning. The number one thing I’m looking for is empathy on both sides.”
