I have always been pro-life, but after seeing “A Distant Thunder”
it did make me think more about what had God intended for the lives of
those children. “A Distant Thunder” is one of those movies
that touches you the first time you see it. It is a movie you definitely
want to talk to others about.
Last month (June) I enrolled in a political science class, a class I was
dreading to take. One day the professor asked if any of us had any feelings
about abortion. To my surprise, mine was the only hand that shot up. I
asked if I could bring a video about abortion. He asked the class if they
would like to see it and they said, “no.” This in spite that
he had just been lecturing us previously that morning about how we needed
to be open to opinions that differed from our own.
After class a young man named Dan, 20, stopped me and asked what the term
partial birth abortion meant. I told him and he was very interested in
knowing more so I brought him a copy of “A Distant Thunder”
the next day.
Two days later I asked him if he had viewed it yet and he said he had
watched the first 10 minutes and instantly rewound it and drove it over
to his best friend’s house. Her name is Sally, she is also 20, and
her boyfriend was pressuring her to have an abortion. She was in the latter
part of her first trimester.
On Friday of that week he told me that after seeing the video she did
not want to have the abortion and had made her boyfriend promise to view
it with her that weekend.
The following Monday Dan told me that her boyfriend had seen it and as
the credits rolled he turned to Sally and said, “We can’t
do this, let’s get married and have this baby.” Sally was
very happy and so was her friend Dan, and needless to say so was I as
well as the others who had prayed for this little life.
God can use even those of us who kick and scream to take a dreaded class.
I am very grateful that He has used me as a way of sharing with Dan and
Sally. I am also very grateful that saving lives was important enough
to these Godly men to inspire them to get God’s message out to women
who are considering abortion in such a powerful way in the movie “A
Distant Thunder.” We must always be open to His leading and continue
to work together as the body of Christ to help speak up for the rights
of these babies who cannot defend themselves.
