30 / 01 / 2009 - Precious Life attend premier of new Pro-Life Movie `22 Weeks`
Shocking movie to be screened in Northern Ireland
Members of Precious Life attended the premier of a new pro-life movie about a baby born alive after a failed abortion. The flim "22 Weeks" - premiered at the March for Life in Washington - tells the true story of a baby aborted alive in an Orlando abortion center in 2005.
A woman named Angele sued an Orlando abortion business in April 2005 for allowing a newborn child to die after she gave birth to the child. [see WorldNetDaily report 25th April 2005 - Abortion staff ignores baby boy born alive]
Angele alleged the abortion facility refused to call emergency personnel and that staff at the abortion facility refused to help Angele or her baby, born on the second day of a two-day abortion procedure.
They also charged that Harry Perper, the abortion practitioner who began the abortion process, and James Pendergraft, the abortion business owner, violated state law.
The film is the first post-election endeavor of BornAliveTruth.org, a group established during the 2008 campaign to expose Barack Obama's votes against an Illinois bill to protect babies who survive botched abortions.
The group describes the film this way: "22 Weeks tells the true story of a young woman locked in the bathroom of an abortion clinic after her aborted baby was born alive."
"It's a film about decisions and the echoes they leave behind. The film includes the reenactment of an actual 911 call," it said. "22 Weeks confronts the outer reaches of one of the most controversial subjects of our time."
Alejandro Monteverde, director of the movie Bella, called 22 Weeks "one of the most disturbing stories I've ever come across."
Jill Stanek - a registered nurse fired from her job when she went public after discovering babies were being aborted alive and shelved to die in the soiled utility room - said of the movie "...an eye-opener ...traumatizing ...I felt her despair. I was stunned!"
Precious Life plan to screen the movie in Northern Ireland within the next few weeks. Details available soon...
