40 Director and Producer John E. Morales discussed why he’s making a film on the heated issue of abortion. “I believe that abortion is the most important human rights issue of our times. Without the right to life we have no other rights to talk about. At the end of today, 3,300 innocent babies will die in their mother’s womb through the tragedy of abortion in clinics across our nation. Over 55 million have perished since Roe v Wade in 1973. Nobody talks about this silent holocaust. You’ll never read an op-ed in the USA Today or the New York Times about those numbers. The fact is that more unborn babies will die today than the number of Americans that died on September 11th.”
