Rebecca Weber, CEO of the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC], hosted a timely new episode of her Better for America podcast by pointing out that the most important issue of our time is not about abortion, it is about life. Filmmaker Tracy Robinson joined Rebecca and spoke about her latest production, “The Matter of Life,” which focuses on “life, conscience, and the sometimes hard-to-grasp truth behind abortion.”
Robinson began working on the film some six years ago which was released a month before the 50-year-old Roe v. Wade decision was upended by a new Supreme Court.
“Even as an evangelical Christian, I didn’t really care that much about the abortion issue. I didn’t think it was a big deal in the grand scheme of things.” As a producer, she was commissioned to make pregnancy resource center videos. “The information I heard, the logic, the clarity, the science of embryology, learning about that, being able to look at fetal imagery and abortion aftermath imagery and really be challenged with the reality of what abortion truly is and truly does…was what downloaded the vision that this should be a documentary film because I knew there were so many millennials in my shoes who had never heard this information before, who were never offered the basic pro-life persuasion or the basic pro-life case. And if they’re like me, they went through public school, they grew up in church, but their parents never really broached the topic, or their pastors never broached the topic.”
That’s what “The Matter of Life” is all about. “People need to be just invited to think deeper about this issue,” she said. Roe v Wade is “a huge step. And I was just very thrilled and excited to be alive at a time when that was reversed…But the work is not done. All these blue states are becoming sanctuaries, so to speak, for abortions [and] women are being flown for free to states like California, where I live, flown out, put up in hotels and given free abortions.” And so, she says, “we shouldn’t just be content that now it’s in the hands of the states to choose and decide there is no right to kill an innocent human being. The work isn’t done. The battle is still going on.”
Robinson pointed out that Planned Parenthood and abortion lobbyists such as the NARAL Pro-Choice America organization continue to promote abortion, looking to convince us that abortion is just a method of birth control. She says that the proof is in the growing numbers of women who have multiple abortions. “Young people are being taught that this is a normal option for them. Abortion is a huge moneymaking industry. There is a lot of money to be made. And so, no wonder it is so protected, that Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry [continue] to fight for abortion. And now they’re doing it through abortion pills. They’re sending women home with these pills to have, essentially, miscarriages on their own. And it’s very dangerous. So, there is money in all sorts of ways for abortion. And that’s really what it boils down to, is a love of money.”
Annie Tang Humphrey, Chief Operating Officer of pro-life Save the Storks, which empowers women to choose life, saw Robinson’s “The Matter of Life” film. Humphrey admitted that it “pushed me to deal with the pain from my abortion experience 25 years ago. I gathered the courage to speak publicly about it. By bringing awareness to others, I experienced true healing and I empowered other women.”
