14 Jul ‘Orphan’ the movie, a nightmare for real orphans.
In response to the new movie coming out Orphans, A coalition of more than 50 orphan advocate and adoption organizations have launched a grassroots campaign to educate, dispel adoption myths and prompt response to the needs of orphans. And allows individuals to sign a letter to Warner Bros urging that a portion of the profit from the movie be used to help orphans.
“The movie ‘Orphan’ does no favors for the boys and girls who share its name,” said Jedd Medefind, president of the Christian Alliance for Orphans
Warner Bros.’s “Orphan” revolves around a couple who adopts a nine-year-old girl after the tragic loss of their unborn child. Strange and horrifying events begin to occur after the couple adopts Esther, who on the outside seems like an angelic little girl. The mother Kate tries to warn her husband John about Esther, but he does not believe her until it’s possibly too late.
Movie reviews have describe “Orphan” as the “anti-adoption horror film of the year” that will be sure to “scare prospective parents from ever adopting.”
“Defend the cause of the fatherless,” urges the prophet Isaiah, one of the greatest needs today is the rescue of orphans. The U.N. estimate of the number of orphans in the world today is 145 million, and this movie will fan the fears and concerns many parents have regarding the long-term impact of adoption. Could turn a lot of potential parents away from adoption.
