RELEASE DATE: “THE VOICE OF JOHN” Executive Producers of River-Song-Productions. Inc. announced the release of The Voice of John, November 4th of this year. This compelling documentary will take you deep into the heart of issues facing our country for over forty years. A multitude of national figures such as National Right to Life president Carol Tobias, former Governor Mike Huckabee, Dr. Alveda King, evangelist Perry Stone, Father Frank Pavone, Creation Museum CEO Ken Ham, Bill Baird, founder of the Pro-Choice League, as well as some of the most brilliant medical, political and philosophical minds of our time, weigh in on the most controversial issues of our time. Whether you are Pro-Life or Pro-Choice, Christian, Jew or Atheist, Liberal or Conservative, this film will illuminate the questions many were afraid to ask and compel you to ask yourself, what do I truly believe? Some may not have an opinion, but they will after they view this film. Does God exist, or is this all there is to this life? When does life begin? Who decides? What roll does or should the government play if any? Is society and our government trying to control who lives and who dies regardless of age? Come view the facts and decide for yourself. We guarantee one thing; you may never think of these topics the same, ever again! www.river-song-productions.org or www. voiceofjohn.org.
