Is abortion moral? Is current U.S. law too permissive? Are there circumstances that make terminating a pregnancy an ethical choice? These are just a few of the loaded questions at the heart of the ever-contentious abortion debate.
They're also topics that are creatively grappled within filmmaker Ray Comfort's riveting new film 7 Reasons. The movie, which released on March 15 at 7ReasonsMovie.com, will challenge viewers to think deeper about the abortion debate, as Comfort asks a variety of men and women about their beliefs on abortion—and whether it really is truly a woman's right to choose.

"I feel like it's a woman's right to choose," one interviewee responds. "We have rights over our own body." Others are seen agreeing with this conclusion.
Those featured in 7 Reasons give a variety of justifications for why they believe abortion should be permissible. From the inconvenience of pregnancy to parental incompetence, the circumstances offered up were sweeping.
Some argued that fetuses simply aren't babies—or that some women seeking abortions are justified in doing so, as they aren't ready for the responsibility of being a parent.
"People who don't have money can't pay for themselves," one person says, citing financial barriers.

But Comfort patiently questions each person and, before long, it's easy to see the house of cards come tumbling down, with hearts and minds changing in the process.
"You'd sacrifice willingly because God's given you an instinct to love your offspring," Comfort told one woman, encouraging her to reject abortion as a moral option and turn to God. "God can grant everlasting life as a free gift."
