“Voiceless” is a thought provoking movie that expounds the idea that someone must be a voice for the voiceless — in this case the voiceless are unborn babies. The movie makes a strong statement that all life is precious and must be protected. In addition to the subject of abortion, many themes critical to understand in our day are subtly brought out.

Movie Description

Jesse Dean is not only the man who believes in being a voice for the voiceless, but he also is a war vet and begins a new ministry at a church in Philadelphia as an outreach leader. His wife Julia joins him, but soon Jesse begins going across the street to an abortion clinic and starts a ministry there all by himself. He says he is compelled to do it, despite several instances of clinic staff members, the police, a security guard, and some of the women getting upset with him. He also ministers to several women who change their minds about getting an abortion.

Unfortunately, the lead pastor, Gil doesn’t feel comfortable with stepping out of the mainstream. Jesse must make a choice, either to take the easy way out and back off, which is what everyone wants him to do, or face a major confrontation, which will require him to put everything on the line — not just his job, but his freedom and marriage, as well. This film encourages people to stand up for what they know is right, particularly as it pertains to taking God’s truths into society to address social issues.

Family Discussion Ideas

Many ideas can be discussed from watching this movie. One example: the reactions of the church members at the prayer meeting to discuss what to do with the abortion clinic.

The sign of a good movie is if it shows good as good, and evil as evil. In this film, the fruits/consequences of actions are shown. Immorality is not glamorized; the raw aftermath is shown. The movie produces a setting where the viewer must ask themselves the question: how do I actually live out my faith? Is church just a feel-good place where I enjoy being with people, take cookies to widows, etc., or is it a place to organize an army and do the Lord’s work?

Note: There is some violence shown.

“Voiceless” addresses the spirit of retreat that can happen so easily without a conscious effort to do the Lord’s work.

  • Angela Murdock

    Watching this movie made me want to do more to help unwed mothers choose life. The main character Jesse is a good example of doing hard things and not giving up in the face of persecution.

  • Becki

    This movie teaches that even one person can have an impact on others for good. Even helping one person is worth it. When we trust in God, great things can happen.

  • Cochran Family

    Good message. I think that it was a little too slow in developing the story for my personal taste, BUT I did love how it showed that it doesn’t matter who you are, or the background you may have, anyone can stand up and fight for issues as controversial as abortion. Your voice matters even if you have no idea what you are doing, just like the man in this movie!
