Bella Movie's Lead Actor Talks More About Baby He Saved From Abortion

Hollywood, CA ( -- Millions of Americans have enjoyed the
soft pro-life theme of the movie Bella, that has been one of
Hollywood's success stories despite the limited number of theaters showing the
film. Now its lead actor Eduardo Verastegui is sharing more details about
the baby saved from an abortion as he prepared for his role in the
In June 2006, first reported the heartwarming story
Verastegui shared at a private showing of the film.

Bella's producers wanted to keep the story private for fear of making
their movie appear to be a polemic political statement on abortion.

In a statement released on Thursday, Verastegui, for the first time,
publicly discusses what happened.

Verastegui told last year that he didn't know much about
the issue of abortion when he prepared for his role as Jose.

Not knowing of the animosity abortion businesses have towards pro-life
advocates, he decided to go to a local abortion facility to learn more
about what really happens inside. What occurred, he says, changed his
life forever.

"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," he

Outside, he met a Hispanic couple considering an abortion and he was
able to speak with them in their native Spanish for 45 minutes. He
offered 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

"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,'" the man told him.

"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," he added.

The movie has touched lives in the same way and motivated pro-life
advocates to strengthen their resolve to end abortion.

California pro-life advocate J.T. Finn encourages pro-life people to
continue seeing the movie and taking friends and family to it.

"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," he told

"'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."

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

"Catholics for Trump" Taylor Marshall has sure Gone Dark on the Subject... Wondering... Whole concept of Bogus Elections (as per Francis) is just a Bridge Too Far

For a guy who headed up a group called "Catholics for Trump," Taylor Marshall has sure gone dark on the subject in recent days.  His "What If Trump Loses?" show features his claim of not giving up, but all he has really said all week is to focus on our own spiritual lives. Nothing wrong with prayer and penance, to be sure! But I can't help wondering whether the whole concept of bogus elections (as per Francis) is just a bridge too far. Important Note : The publisher of the Catholic Monitor has made a pledge to say the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary everyday for a Rosary Lepanto-like victory for President Trump. He asks all CM readers to make this pledge. " THE HOLY ROSARY, MOST POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY OF GOD AND MAN... Saint Pius V ordered the faithful to recite the Rosary to impetrate victory from God in the epic battle of the Christian Armada against the Turk in the waters of Lepanto: still today, at noon each day, the bells rin
