With its debut in Mexico one month away, Nelson Publishers has announced it will publish a novel based on the original screenplay of the movie “Bella,” which won over audiences in the U.S. with its strong pro-life and pro-family message.

 

The novel has been written by Lisa Samson, an award-winning author of 19 books.

 

The screenplay by Alejandro Monteverde, Patrick Million and Leo Severino tells the story of Jose, “a man who gave up his life for the woman he loved.  Bella is an encouraging story that celebrates life, love, family and relationships,” said Nelson Publishers.

The IFRL is the largest grassroots pro-life organization in Illinois. A non-profit organization, that serves as the state coordinating body for local pro-life chapters representing thousands of Illinois citizens working to restore respect for all human life in our society.

Since 1973 the Illinois Federation for Right to Life has been working to end abortion and restore legal protection to those members of the human family who are threatened by abortion, infanticide and euthanasia. Diverse though we are, we hold one common belief - that every human being has an inalienable right to life that is precious and must be protected.
