The last few years have seen a number of pro-life films, both feature-length and short, but I think “Crescendo” stands at the top. This stunning 15-minute work has received global acclaim and has won over 11 international awards.
It revolves around an 18th-century woman in distress who, while pregnant, tries to take her own life, only to reverse course through some unexpected twists. It was produced by the same team behind “Bella”, another celebrated pro-life film, and aims to raise $10 million for crisis pregnancy centers around the world.

Interestingly, one of the film’s executive producers is Pattie Mallette, better known as the mother of pop superstar Justin Bieber. Mallette felt personally connected to the film’s message since she gave birth to her now-famous son while unmarried and after being pressured to terminate the pregnancy.
“My hope has always been to tell my story to help young women because I can relate,” she says. During her pregnancy, she was, “relatively alone, scared and unprepared” until a crisis pregnancy center took her in, “and gave me the help I needed.”
“I don’t know where we would be without that center,” Mallette says, adding, “I would hope that anyone, whether for or against abortion, would always want any young woman who may need a place to be cared for, loved and helped, to have what she would need.”
