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

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.
