The film, 40, is educational and inspirational, but best of all, it is motivational! It is an amazing tool to help grow pro-life ministries and motivate new people to positive, life-affirming action in parishes, schools, and our broader communities.  

40, one of the most compelling pro-life documentaries ever produced a film which coincides with the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, highlights well-reasoned and secular arguments against abortion and investigates the effects of abortion in our nation over the last 40 years.


40 gives voice to both sides fairly and lets women speak for themselves through experience on the reasons for their firm convictions about abortion. The film also addresses some of the strongest arguments for the pro-choice position, and provides heartfelt testimonies from post abortive women and men. The film captures the impact of abortion on women, men, families and society in an exquisite encounter with human dignity. It also showcases the annual March for Life and the youth as the generation that will end abortion.

Beautifully shot and eloquently produced, it is a must see for all people, young and old.

Directed by the co-producer of the award winning Champions of Faith: Baseball Edition John Morales, and from Executive Producer and Movie to Movement Founder Jason Jones, 40 presents abortion as the most important human and civil rights issue of our time. The production team of photojournalist Rob Kaczmark and Spirit Juice Studios bring years of film making experience to the project.
