Popular New Pro-Life Movie Sweeps Past McCain and Obama on GodTube

Popular New Pro-Life Movie Sweeps Past McCain and Obama on GodTube

MEDIA ADVISORY, October 30 /Christian Newswire/ -- Visitors to GodTube's new social-networking area are flocking to see the award- winning movie "Come What May" overwhelmingly more than McCain and Obama's group pages.

Launched just 3-days ago, Monday, October 27, the Group page for "Come What May" has attracted nearly 14,000 visitors compared to McCain's (2,166 visitors) and Obama's (2,150) Group pages, which launched 26-days ago.

The movie, made by 40 home schooled filmmakers, some as young as 11 years old, dramatizes the case for overturning Roe vs. Wade at the U.S. Supreme Court. The unconventional story and its growing audience have drawn the ire of abortion proponents and quick praise from pro-life leaders.

"How compelling is it when we see our youth take on such a strong subject as Roe Vs. Wade directly with a film like 'Come What May,'" extols Kurt Ramspott, founder Guys For Life. "Surely, as generation after generation of young Christian warriors lead their families in righteousness, Roe Vs. Wade will see it's day and abortion will no longer be one of America's greatest blights. Amen."

Valley Family Forum director, Dean Welty, believes the movie could impact the November elections. "If this little movie gets widely known, and it could breakout because it's very controversial, then watch out," Welty predicts.

Thus far, about 250,000 viewers have seen part or all of CWM from free screenings hosted by the American Family Association and GodTube. Viewers can go to, then link to AFA or GodTube screenings from there. "This film could be a tipping point in this dramatic battle of Good vs. Evil in our lifetime," Ramspott exclaimed. "It is a 'must see' that will spur you onto action!"

"We are showing the movie free online for another few days, perhaps through November 4, as audiences support it through increasing DVD sales," explains George Escobar, founder of AFG. "The screening is underwritten by AFG and sponsors, but now families have come alongside us. They're excited to share the DVD with their family and friends."

Advent Film Group (AFG) produced the movie in association with Patrick Henry College (PHC), a true-to-life powerhouse in collegiate debate and moot court competition, whose students are showcased in the movie. Michael Farris, chancellor of PHC and constitutional attorney, wrote the film's legal framework.
