HALO Recommends

Crescendo – Added July 2020

Crescendo is a 15-minute pro-life short film which is based on a true story of a famous person in history who was nearly aborted.

While Crescendo is a short film, it packs a very powerful punch. This film takes place in Germany in the 17th century. The central character, Maria, is a young pregnant woman who struggles with her marriage. Her husband is a drunk, beats her repeatedly and cheats on her. Maria decides she doesn’t want to bring a child into a miserable world and determines she must abort her child. Things don’t go as she planned, however, and her choice changes the world.

While this is a pro-life film focusing on abortion, it’s message is even bigger. This film is about the beauty of the human person and reminds us that each of us is irreplaceable.

The mission of the Healthcare Advocacy and Leadership Organization is to promote, protect, and advocate for the rights of the medically vulnerable through direct patient and family interactions; through community education and awareness programs; and through promotion and development of concrete *"life-affirming healthcare"* alternatives for those facing the grave consequences of healthcare rationing and unethical practices, especially those at risk of euthanasia and assisted suicide.
*"Life-affirming healthcare" is defined as medical care in which the paramount principle is the sanctity of life, which means that the life and safety of each person come first and each person receives medical care across their lifespan based on their need for care and never with an intention to hasten death, regardless of their abilities or perceived "quality of life."
