In the Name of Choice

The Department of Missions and Evangelism of the Antichian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese recently released a documentary about abortion.  The nine-part series, In the Name of Choice, directed by Deacon Adam Lowell Roberts and featuring Frederica Mathewes-Green, has but one message - that about 80% of young women who have gotten abortions report that they felt like they had no choice but to abort their unborn child.  They express that they felt they were either being forced by someone else to go through with the abortion (boyfriend, husband, father, mother) or they did so to satisfy another person.  In orther words, the decision to have an abortion was not really THEIR choice.

In this docu-series, a number of agencies and Christian ministries are featured.  These are groups that have devoted themselves to taking a compassionate approach by presenting alternatives to young pregnant women who feel trapped and would otherwise have no support should they desire to keep their child.  Access the videos via the link below:



Lumen Christi Institute

Distinct in their theology, spirituality and discipline of Church life, 23 Eastern Catholic Churches are in communion with the Roman Catholic Church.  The Second Vatican Council urged the Eastern Catholic Churches to promote their unique share of the tradition.  This series responds to that mandate and features leading scholars in the field to offer their theological perspectives drawn from the wisdom of the Christian East.  In view of broadening our understanding of the Catholic intellectual tradition, this series draws attention to the vantage points of Christians who worship, think, and pray in continuity with the first 1000 years of the undivided Church.
