                      The first of two films from The BIRTH CONTROL Movie Project, BIRTH CONTROL: How Did We Get Here? takes a historic look at the modern church’s public embrace and overwhelming acceptance of child prevention as biblical theology. Raising godly children is no longer marriage’s primary purpose. Instead, adults seek convenience and physical gratification perverting God’s intended purpose for marriage. Featuring Dr. George Grant, Dr. Allan Carlson, Geoffrey Botkin, Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr., Lila Rose, Kevin Swanson, and Julie Roys. Learn how abortion, racial segregation, and eugenics all play a role in the current birth control reality, and follow the film’s chronological timeline from Creation to the late 20th-Century and learn how the Church’s reinterpretation of Scripture and rejection of Church history led to the loss of purity in our nation. BIRTH CONTROL: How Did We Get Here? won Best Sanctity of Life Runner-Up in the 2013 San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival, and the follow up film BIRTH CONTROL: Is It Up to Us? is coming soon in 2013.
