Today Messenger Studios, alongside John & Lisa Bevere, is excited to announce the release of a new short film called The Love You're Looking For. In this short film, you watch as the mother, portrayed by Jeanine Amapola, walks through life as a single mom. As her son grows up, it's clear he plays a significant role in encouraging and supporting her through the good times and the bad. Yet through all of this, a shadow lingers in the background of their lives. Something haunts the mother. In moments that should be full of joy, something holds her back from truly experiencing the happiness in life available to her.
"With this film, the goal is to start a conversation by bringing to light a perspective of the pro-life movement that often takes a back seat under the noise of the picketers. For years, the pro-life movement has used fear tactics to convince young mothers to avoid abortions. Whether through showing horrifying pictures of children after the abortion or ultrasound pictures of children in the womb, we believe these tactics only drive young women in vulnerable situations further into guilt and shame. We want to change that narrative," Messenger Studios shares.
"Our goal is for women who find themselves in this place to feel loved, heard, and understood. Unfortunately, however, certain facets of Christian culture have perpetuated the opposite narrative. Women who have had an abortion or who have considered having one have been painted as the outcasts of the church. This isn't God's heart. Abortion doesn't disqualify them from the call or love of God or lessen their ability to change the world through the power of their testimony. A lot of people don't realize that abortion has many victims. Everyday, thousands of women and men feel an overwhelming sense of loss, imagining there's no forgiveness for themselves. But that's just not true."
"We want to help. Whether you've had an abortion, or maybe you're pregnant right now and you feel like you don't have a choice because you don't have the support you need, you're not alone. On the other side of this link are people who want to help. People who understand your story and want to support you through this difficult process," they conclude.
