Mr. Speaker, I rise today to call attention to one of the most important issues of our time and to remind my colleagues and my fellow Americans that ``every life is beautiful.''

This weekend, a film called ``October Baby'' will be in theaters across the country to tell the beautiful, heartfelt story of Hannah, a young woman who learns she was adopted after a failed abortion. While this film captures her journey to discover her hidden past and find hope for her unknown future, it takes a clear stand for life, something we often don't see at the movies.

I believe protecting unborn life is a universal issue and has become one of the most unifying causes in recent decades. I'm grateful to all those that are involved in the making of the movie, especially the Erwin brothers from Alabama for making ``October Baby'' and their willingness to put this important issue in the spotlight.
