I am convinced that abortion is wrong, because it is killing an innocent unborn baby - a human being. Therefore I cannot just stand by and do nothing while innocent people are killed. That would be like standing by and doing nothing while an innocent person was lynched or raped. Or it would be like standing by and doing nothing to oppose the evils of slavery in the American South or the massacre of Jews in Nazi Germany. To say, “Hey, that was between them. It was none of my business,” would surely make me … if not actively evil, surely incredibly callous to the sufferings of others. No, I’m sorry, but I don't respect a women's right to exploit and destroy other human beings for their personal benefit. Slavery in the American South was evil and wrong, the holocaust of the Jews was evil and wrong, and Abortion - the killing of millions of innoncent unborn babies - is evil and wrong.

Film Synopsis: "The act of making a choice. Sometimes the choice of inaction has consequences stronger than we could ever imagine. Throughout history, men have been faced with difficult choices in a world that makes it easy for them to conform. This film explores the hope that lies behind every decision made in the face of adversity; the hope that is buried in the heart of those that look beyond themselves and see something bigger worth fighting for."
excerpts from Pro-Life With Christ
In an interview with LifeSiteNews.com Tim Morgan, who wrote and directed the film, recounted how the inspiration for the film came to him.
Morgan told LSN that for most of his life, while he had always been "pro-life," he had never given much thought to the issue - that is, until last year when he attended the massive prayer rally, "The Call." "That's when it really hit me, hit my heart," he says, "that there is a need for just some sort of voice in the arts, in the entertainment world, in defense of these unborn babies."
Following his experience at The Call, Morgan came up with the idea for Volition, and wrote the script. But, despite his best efforts to find an investor to finance the film, he was met without success, until he received an unexpected call from The Doorpost telling him that he had been selected as a finalist.
"It was like a door opening out of nowhere," Tim says. "All of a sudden I have this budget for a movie I've been looking to get the budget for."
Volition places its central character, who goes unnamed, in the historical contexts of what the filmmakers clearly believe to be three of the greatest human rights violations in history: the holocaust, slavery, and abortion.
In each of the vignettes the protagonist is placed in a position of some authority, with the promise of more to come, and in each he is forced to the breaking point, where he must either become complicit with the evils of the age, or stand up and make a choice to oppose it. While the viewer is not shown the protagonist's ultimate choice in Nazi Germany or in the American South, the film movingly depicts his choice in regard to the third - abortion.
