Gimme Shelter, a movie about the gift of life, challenges and all...

2014-02-16

It's not your typical fairly tale story... 

"You ain't going no where...Honey mommy loves you. You'll be back!” 

It's a story of drug abuse, pain and a sense of hopelessness. 

"When I was 8, I was taken away from my mother when she was arrested for drugs. By the time I was 12, I was in my tenth foster home and all that time, this letter was the only thing I got from you—dad.”

Titled 'Gimme Shelter' goes beyond a Hollywood script. Based on a true story, a teenage girl, played by Vanessa Hudgens, finds out she's pregnant, amid a whirlwind of drama and instability

"It's clear that you are not ready to assume the responsibility of motherhood.” 

With no money, no where to go, and outside pressures, having an abortion seems like the right choice. But a priest and hospital chaplain make her think twice. 

'Don't make your child suffer, because you're suffering.'

-Where was God when I was suffering all these years? You think you know me? You don't know anything.'

But things changed when she met a carrying stranger

"Twenty years ago, I opened my home as a shelter.”

It's here, that she finds the support she's been looking for, for her and her newborn...

"It's crazy how you can go and live with strangers and feel like you're family.” 

The movie is now being shown in theaters across America. Even the Vatican's Pontifical Academy for Life has expressed support for the movie's pro-life message.
