Kirk Cameron is seriously alarmed about the nation his and the children of other Americans will inherit in the years to come. Like a majority of concerned Christian parents, the husband and father of six sees an economy on the ropes, a government that is $16 trillion in debt, and a population that has lost its way morally and spiritually.
A Minnesota-based pro-life group is raising awareness of the gruesome practice, approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA), of research labs using the remains of aborted babies in medical research projects. In a recent news release, Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL) reported that the FDA has approved a clinical trial by StemCells Inc., which uses brain tissue from aborted babies to treat macular degeneration.

What made America one of the greatest nations on earth? Can its citizens rediscover that greatness before their nation is overcome by mediocrity, selfishness, and sin? In the new film Monumental: In Search of America’s National Treasure, premiering March 27 for one night in over 550 theaters nationwide, former Hollywood actor (now a Christian apologist) Kirk Cameron takes a look back at the generations that founded America to determine what special characteristics they had that gave the nation its momentum toward greatness and prosperity.

In the 39 years since the Roe v. Wade decision, almost three generations of women have had access to legal abortions. The newest pro-life movie, October Baby, explores the devastation caused by the then-unexplored effects of the 1973 ruling on the littlest victims, post-abortive mothers, and everyone else in the wake of this tragedy. No matter which side of the debate you take, this film is a touching story of the real-life consequences of abortion.
