The new documentary, “The Gift of Life,” premiered in Des Moines, Iowa, on December 14, 2011. People who see it will find God in “The Gift of Life” movie.
The anti-abortion documentary is narrated by former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. He was present and spoke at the premiere, but he wasn’t the only one. According to First Read on MSNBC.com, “Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, and Rick Santorum addressed the 1200 person crowd before the house lights dimmed for the ‘The Gift of Life’ premiere.”
According to the article, “‘I do want you to take note,’ Huckabee told the crowd. ‘There were four candidates who cleared their schedules, and made this a priority event.’”
On the movie’s web site, Huckabee writes, “My own pro-life journey took place in the early 1970s shortly after the January 1973 Roe v. Wade decision was handed down by the United States Supreme Court. By the time I had finished college, in December 1975, I had begun to understand that the decision was a radical departure from the norms of our culture and law.
“Over the years, I’ve come to believe that this was far more than one of many political issues that needed to be won through legislative and judicial battles. The right to life is a moral issue that can’t be taken from you and should not vary from state to state. ”
Besides Mike Huckabee, the cast of the The Gift of Life movie includes:
- Sandra Cano, known as “Mary Doe,” in the Doe v. Bolton case
