Your personal interest in what is happening through the Center for Bioethics and Culture (CBC) is so encouraging. I appreciate your willingness to join hands with me in this bioethics battle. I cannot lead this effort without you!
On September 3, I returned home from a packed 12-day trip to Italy. Eggsploitation was one of the featured films screened this year at one of the conferences I attended. At another conference, I was asked to have the film sub-titled into Italian for the group’s conference next year where 100,000 people are expected to attend. Let me tell you, this documentary created quite a buzz.
In addition to speaking, I had a number of key game-changing discussions and was interviewed by reporters about the untold dark side of the biotech industry. Many were emotionally touched with our message.
Just 14 months ago, Eggsploitation was only an idea that I felt had to become a film. Now it is recognized as one of the outstanding documentary films of the year. I left Italy with a strong sense that CBC is just beginning to have a significant impact on a complex, self-serving industry that is motivated more by profit than by human dignity or life itself.
After seeing the continuing impact that Eggsploitation was having on uninformed women, I felt led to pursue a third film, Anonymous Father’s Day, that exposes the gripping challenges related to sperm donation. A September 5 article in The New York Times nailed the issues this next film will address with the headline: “One Sperm Donor, 150 Offspring.”
The ethical, moral, and health implications on future generations that are products of unknown sperm contributions are profound. Anonymous Father’s Day will focus on the lives of those who need to know where they came from but have no way to track their biological history. Powerful stories for this film will be captured by the end of this month, the editing process begins in October, and Anonymous Father’s Day will be released in December.
Anonymous Father’s Day will cost $26,000 to produce. This is far below film industry production costs. I have been able to raise $8,000 of this cost thus far. In order to complete this documentary by December, an additional $18,000 is needed in the next six weeks. Once the film is completed, targeted promotion is required to launch this film on hundreds of college/university campuses and other key locations where its message can challenge uninformed thinking. The immediate promotion cost need will be $12,000.
Your personal involvement is so needed at this time! Would you join hands with me today and help complete this new film? Would you consider a special gift of $500 to $1,000 so Anonymous Father’s Day can be released in less than 90 days and then be strategically promoted in early 2012?
Imagine the impact your gift will have in the lives of hundreds of thousands who are confused by the conflicting message they are receiving by an industry that sees great profit more important than quality of life. Your generosity will help influence the bioethics message during a very critical time!
