22 Weeks, A Half Million Signatures & The March
No one expected a good time.
However, expectations were exceeded. We were watching a movie about pain and death.
A movie about abortion.
There are over 500 serious botched abortions, re: Live Births, each year.
The movie 22 Weeks tells the true story of one of them.
Charmaine and Your Business Blogger(R) attended a screening of 22 Weeks in Washington, DC.
We talked with director Angel Manuel Soto after his movie. Charmaine commented that the film was well done. Hollywood quality. (This was, in this case, a compliment.)
Charmaine asked about the funding. Soto said 22 Weeks was “low budget.”
What does that mean? “How low?” Charmaine asked.
“$25,000 from two donors,” said director.
$25K? For a film that might change the world.
Soto feels that the story is compelling and could be a game changer. (Let’s not call it a killer app…)
He feels the movie can change the culture on abortion, like the book Uncle Tom’s Cabin changed the nation’s emotions on slavery.
When Harriet Beecher Stowe visited the White House during the War Between The States, Lincoln greeted her, “So this is the Little Lady Who Started this Great War.”
Perhaps 22 Weeks will start a different kind of war.

Alert Readers know that Charmaine will be speaking at the Blogs 4 Life just before the annual March for Life.
She will be speaking to alternative media outlets. She will lead with the news that the Americans United for Life Action web site FightFOCA.com petition crossed over to 500,000 signatures tonight on the eve of the March.
As Charmaine and I walked thru Union Station to catch 22 Weeks, we noticed that it was a bit more crowded than usual.
“Maybe all these people came for the Obama inauguration — and are staying over for the 22 Weeks movie…?” I asked.
Charmaine just looked at me, “Not likely.”
