Animated For Life
It should not take anyone who visits the TLCM website a long time to realise that sharing the Pro-Life message with the public is very important to us (as it should be for every Catholic)! This cause was in fact one of the main motivators that got True Light Catholic Media stared.
“For God, the Lord of life, has conferred on men the surpassing ministry of safeguarding life in a manner which is worthy of man. Therefore from the moment of its conception life must be guarded with the greatest care while abortion and infanticide are unspeakable crimes.” – Gaudium Et Spes
Our early projects
Back in August 2015, when voices promoting abortion (i.e. the killing of the unborn) began to be heard in Malta, we felt the need to speak up for those who had no voice in the debate. This led to the creation of the first simple yet effective animated video stating precisely this point. This video ‘Voice Of The Unborn’ was actually what led to the start of True Light Catholic Media, back then by the simpler name True Light Media. Another video revealing the awful reality of abortion quick followed.
Another threat on the horizon was the talk of allowing surrogacy in our land. Thus, another video ensued.
Not long after, human life was under attack once more – this time though In Vitro Fertilization and an intent push for embryo freezing. This time we aimed for a longer animated video by which we tried to bring the perspective of the human embryo to the fore, and re-emphasize the humanity of each human being, no matter how small. We then felt the need to expound a bit more on what the Church teaches about IVF and why, since it seemed evident that the Church’s teaching needed to be heard and explained.
Just a few months later, talk of legalizing the morning after pill began and confusion abounded regarding how these drugs really work. This led to three short animated videos to help clarify things a bit better.
