COME WHAT MAY, a new movie from Advent Film Group (AFG), resolves Clinton and Obama's uncertainty about when life begins. At a "Compassion Forum" at Messiah College in the political battleground state of Pennsylvania, Barack Obama confessed his confusion about the fact that human life begins at conception. His political rival, Hillary Clinton, simply restated her pro-abortion views.


"This is something that I have not, I think, come to a firm resolution on," Obama said in the forum. "I think it's very hard to know what that means, when life begins."


Clinton was more elusive in her response, couching her answer in terms of "potential" life - a pro- abortionist term invented to soften the idea that abortion is taking a human life. "I believe the potential for life begins at conception," Clinton said.


AFG has recently posted on GoogleVideo and GodTube a "rough-cut" clip from its upcoming movie, COME WHAT MAY, which gives a simple and profound answer to the moral question of our time: When does life begin?

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. The IFRL is composed of people of different political persuasions, various faiths and diverse economic, social and ethnic backgrounds. 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. IFRL is dedicated to restoring the right to life to the unborn, and protection for the disabled and the elderly.   Click here to learn more about the IFRL.

New Movie Gives Clinton and Obama the Answer to 'When Life Begins'

"When life begins is a 'politicized' moral issue. Presidential candidates from both parties recognize this and are waffling," explains George Escobar, founder of AFG. "We hope this clip encourages them (and voters) to take a clear stand for life."


Advent is training a new generation of Christian filmmakers, drawn from the homeschooling community nationwide, to go beyond the film industry's "fuzzy faith-based" movies by tackling tough moral and social issues head-on. AFG also seeks to address the distressing lack of qualified Christian filmmakers needed to fill key positions as directors of big-budget movies. Case in point: "Amazing Grace" and "The Chronicles of Narnia," two successful Christian-themed movies, were both directed by secular filmmakers. "Though legions of Christians work in the industry, apparently none could be entrusted to direct major motion pictures," Escobar observes.


A born-again believer and homeschooling dad, Escobar is a former American Film Institute Producing Fellow and recent VP of Product Development for Discovery and Executive Director for AOL Video.


We are providing a fresh alternative to Hollywood fare. "Homeschoolers have already successfully turned the public education monopoly upside down; we will now do the same in cinema."
