After my November post about Fiction & The Sanctity of Life, we all agreed that we like stories that embrace a message of hope and faith. Today I want to share a few pro-life stories that I’ve enjoyed. These books didn’t necessarily set out to promote a pro-life message, but they show what it looks like to value life and fight for hope.

Several months ago, I was scrolling through Facebook when a movie trailer caught my attention. The actor who played Finnick in Mockingjay sat in a wheelchair and smiled at a pretty girl. Even without turning the volume on, it was clear the man in the wheelchair and the girl were falling in love. I smiled a little and moved on.
When I mentioned the trailer to a friend, she told me the movie was sparking a lot of controversy. The story (which I haven’t read or watched) depicts a newly wheelchair bound man and his female caregiver falling in love, but the ending has a big twist. The man decides to end his own live via doctor assisted suicide.
