Independent filmmakers Veronica Dipippo and Marc Aramian are in the process of making a pro-life, faith based film to combat the pro-abortion narrative so dominant in Hollywood. 

"We are in a culture war and Hollywood will do everything they can to prevent this movie from being made," Aramian said on the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "They certainly would never fund that, which is why we're crowdfunding."

The movie is titled "He Named Him Adam" and is based on the true story of a woman named Regina Block who had an abortion and as a result went into severe depression and regret. The movie is about her transformational journey of becoming pro-life and eventually becoming the Director of the National Memorial of the Unborn.

Aramian said that while pro-life advocates often use facts and logic when it comes to abortion, it is necessary to use tactics that appeal to the emotions of people. 

"Half the people in this country only pay attention to emotional arguments," he said. "Who's been making those? Hollywood. Hollywood creates a sympathetic character that everybody likes and everybody wants to be like, and shows that they are victims of some value system, just like some Judeo-Christian value system."

He made the reference to a 2020 film titled "Unpregnant" which is a pro-abortion film. Dipippo said that she used to be a pro-choice activist and it wasn't until she heard pro-life stories that her view started to change.

"What changed my mind was when my heart changed," she said. "My heart changed because throughout my life, I started hearing women's stories like Regina's, and that had a very powerful impact on me. That's what changed me from being pro-abortion to being pro-life." 

The two filmmakers said that a lot of independent storytellers are making movies via crowdfunding such as "The Chosen" and "Sound of Freedom."

"Projects like 'The Chosen' and projects like 'Sound of Freedom'..... these inspire conversations and inspire people to delve into issues that maybe they're not comfortable delving into such as the issue of post-abortive regret," Dipippo said. 

"Sound of Freedom" was a crowdfunded movie that brought awareness to child sex trafficking that came out last year. 

Dipippo and Aramian said they want the film to be out before the 2024 election. 

"We know that this is going to be a big issue that the Democrats are going to shape and be pushing hard," Dipippo said.
