Trapped: A Short Film on Teen Unplanned Pregnancy

By Randy Alcorn | February 10, 2017
Most prolife films are short clips or movie length, and unfortunately, the short ones don’t allow viewers much time to experience the emotions or to ponder.

SLED: A Simple Way to Talk with Those Who Are Prochoice About the Personhood of the Unborn

By Randy Alcorn | May 23, 2016
Every argument for abortion which appeals to a woman’s inconvenience, stress, and financial hardship can be made just as persuasively about her two-month-old, her two-year-old, her teenager, her husband, or her parents.
