Cradle My Heart Radio welcomes Jason Jones
Jason Jones (podcast here) is joining us this week to share his story of how abortion can make victims of men. Jason suffered lost fatherhood in a devastating case of forced abortion involving his high school sweetheart.
He’ll also share the hope embedded in his story: even after suffering the painful and personal injustice of an abortion happening against their will, men can emerge as heroes. Jason’s response to the news of the abortion was immediate and lasting; he has made it his purpose to work tirelessly to end abortion in our time.
Jason partnered with Pattie Mallette for Crescendo. You may remember Pattie made news on the Today Show in 2012 with her story of deciding against abortion when she was pregant and scared at seventeen. That child grew up to be Justin Beiber and Pattie has remained committed to helping women make a better choice than abortion. One of the ways she’s followed that commitment is through the short film Crescendo which has raised over $5 million for the pregnancy help movement since its release in 2011.
As of this month the full version is now available on youtube. We’ll talk with Jason about working on these films and his new book, The Race to Save Our Century which offers comprehensive solutions to the issues facing our world today.
