There is a new program running on PBS. It is called “Call the Midwife” and it is the story of a small convent in bombed out post WWII London that is running midwifery services for the poor. The story features both nuns and non-religious midwives who are young women.
This is a real tear jerker. It is so profoundly pro-life and they actually use real new-born babies in some of the scenes.
The episode last night told the story of a young Irish girl forced into prostitution, who gets pregnant and, knowing her pimps would abort the child, seeks out one of the midwives who helps her get shelter. It was a beautiful story, but bitter in the end when the priest in charge of the shelter for unwed mothers explains that the child had to be given up for adoption despite the tears of the young mother.
The young girl describes another prostitute who got pregnant and got aborted and the bloody fetus in a porcelain bowl.
I am very impressed that PBS is running such a pro-life message. I wonder if it is intentional.
