And exceptional grace has also been one of the film’s many positive byproducts. Although the movie has yet to be released, it’s already moving hearts, changing minds and even saving lives. Co-writer and co-producer Leo Severino shared with CWA that he’s aware of at least two instances where babies are alive today because of Bella’s message of truth and love. In fact, by God’s grace, the world has now been blessed with a real life Bella — a little girl named for the film — whose life was spared only hours before she was scheduled to die at the hands of an abortionist.
Yes, it’s no wonder the Hollywood left wouldn’t give Bell a the time of day. The movie’s timeless message is one they urgently wish to chill. It’s a message not altogether unlike The Passion of the Christ, a message which reminds us all that the selfless sacrifice of one can mean the precious gift of life for another.
