Movie Star Saved Real Baby

'Bella' Movie Star, Eduardo Verastegui, Saved Real Baby While Researching His Award-Winning Film. Plus, New Los Angeles Times Story Will Inspire Moviegoers and Bring More Rave Reviews
REDONDO BEACH, Calif., Dec. 6 /Christian Newswire/ -- "By the grace of God, I was able to save this baby," said Eduardo Verastegui, star of the movie, "Bella." The famous 33-year-old Mexican actor shared this while holding baby "Eduardito" at a LAPS pregnancy center banquet in Los Angeles.

Eduardo always hoped his new film would touch lives and inspire souls, but he never imagined "Bella" would help save a real baby's life before filming even began. More on this in a minute...

"Bella" - in theaters now - getting rave reviews ( see 12/4/07 L.A. Times article and other reviews). "Bella" took top prize at Toronto's International Film Festival (2006), winning the highly coveted "People's Choice Award," a distinction that puts it in the company of such Oscar-winning films as Chariots of Fire, American Beauty, Life is Beautiful, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Hotel Rwanda.

Tony Bennett testimony - At the New York "Bella" premiere, Grammy winning singer Tony Bennett spontaneously took the microphone from Eduardo Verastegui and gave an impassioned speech through tears about how much he loved "Bella." Bennett called it the "perfect movie, an artistic masterpiece that every American must see."

Top Hispanic singer/songwriter Alejandro Sanz, who's won 15 Grammys, loved Bella so much he wrote a song for the movie. The Smithsonian Institute produced a video for their annual Awards Gala featuring famous Latino celebrities sharing their passion for "Bella." It included Alejandro Sanz, Maria Celeste, Angelica Vale, Paulina Rubio, the lead singer of Switchfoot and the Chairman of the Smithsonian Institute.

But Eduardo's most precious testimony goes back to the time he was doing research for his lead role in this award-winning, romantic drama.

Eduardo says, "I decided to go to an abortion center to see if I could learn more about what women think and feel when faced with a crisis pregnancy..." That's when Eduardo met a couple seeking an abortion. He spoke with them for 45 minutes, offering them hope, help, encouragement and his phone number.

"Several months later," Eduardo continues, "I received a phone call from the man I met with the pregnant lady in front of the abortion center. He said, 'Hello Eduardo - this is Javier, and I have great news. My boy was born yesterday! I want to thank you and ask your permission - I would like to name him, Eduardo.'"

"I just put the phone down - I couldn't even talk," Eduardo says. "It's the most emotional thing I've ever done in my life. It changed my life. It was beautiful. I went to the hospital to meet them and see the baby. A few weeks later, I was holding little Eduardito in my hands. It was beautiful!"

Spread word about "Bella," says pro-life leader

California pro-life leader J.T. Finn was moved by "Bella" and Eduardo's beautiful story. Finn says, "We need to help this award-winning, pro- adoption movie, 'Bella,' stay in theaters so it can keep saving babies' lives and touching people's minds and hearts."

Finn founded two popular Web sites www.prolife.com and www.lovematters.com and he promotes "Bella" because of its heartwarming, inspiring theme: One person can change your life forever

"'Bella' is doing extremely well at the box office for the limited number of theaters it's in," says Finn, "but the onslaught of Christmas blockbuster films, some of which open this weekend, threatens to drive it out of theaters."

"One thing we can do," Finn says, "is to use the Internet to multiply our positive 'word of mouth' about 'Bella.' E-mail all your friends and relatives. Tell them to see 'Bella' this weekend. If everyone passes the message along, we can reach millions of people about this touching, inspiring, pro-life film."

"Why not join the grassroots movement of people who are seeing 'Bella' multiple times, treating friends to see it, arranging for classes, whole schools, clubs and church groups to see it, even renting theaters for group showings," says Finn. "You can give the gift of LIFE this Christmas season by spreading the word about this life-saving movie!"

Vox Cantoris vs. Aqua

The Catholic Monitor commenter Aqua had this to say to the Vox Cantoris website: Aqua said… Fred, your topic here reminds me of a dust-up, a few days ago, on Vox Cantoris. He asserted that it is our duty as Christians to wear masks to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass if the government tells us we must, or they will close our Churches. My response to him was that I find it inconceivable that an orthodox Catholic, such as himself, would ever submit to unjust dictates from secular government over how we approach Our Lord in Holy Mass. My response to him was that the Mass belongs to Catholics and we decide, within the bounds of Tradition, and in accord with the Word of Jesus, how we conduct ourselves in Holy Mass. Only one authority prevails over Mass and that is our God and the Sacred Tradition given by Him to guide us in all times and places. Understand, there is nothing inherently wrong with wearing a mask to Mass. But there is EVERYTHING wrong with wearing a symbol

Inventor of mRNA Vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD: "'Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò is calling for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance 'under the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the only King and Savior,' to fight back against the establishment of the New World Order'"

T his is what the inventor of mRNA vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD himself, reported about the vaccines: Robert W Malone, MD @RWMaloneMD "We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination." [https://mobile.twitter.com/RWMaloneMD/status/1462194727407730693]   Moreover, he goes even further and is quoting Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò's call for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance:   Robert W Malone, MD @RWMaloneMD "Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò is calling for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance “under the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the only King and Savior,” to fight back against the establishment of the New World Order." youtube.com Abp.

Flashback: Virtue Signaling Francis Trads did to Frank Walker what RINO "Conservatives" are doing, now, to Trump

For Virtue Signaling Banning the Mass Francis Trads is Frank Walker the New Trump?   March 25, 2020 British conservative Daniel Hannan said: "Virtue signaling is competitive. When all your friends are anti-Trump, you have to go further." After President Donald Trump took office the liberal virtue signaling was very competitive with them, calling him every name in the book with death threats as well as 12,000 Tweets for his assassination and the famous Kathy Griffin's beheading Trump photo. After Canon 212 publisher Frank Walker made a headline which he later admitted he made a mistake on it appears that banning the Mass Francis traditionalists decided to join in the liberal-like behavior in a frenzy of virtue signaling against him. The Francis trads like the liberals are very competitive in their virtue signaling. Remember, when all your friends are anti-Walker, you have to go farther. The banning the Mass Francis traditionalists have issued num
