Lines that Divide: the Great Stem Cell Debate Airing on KALO-TV

"If you are looking for an antidote to the confusion surrounding the science and ethics of embryo stem cell research, Lines That Divide is the movie for you. It cuts through the hype and leaves you with the facts...." ~John Cusey, former senior staffer, U.S. House of Representatives

Hawaii Right to Life is excited to announce the televised broadcast of Lines that Divide: the Great Stem Cell Debate on KALO-TV, channel 38 (cable channel 25). Lines that Divide is a new documentary that helps viewers understand the science and human dignity issues behind stem cell research, human cloning, and similar biotechnologies. It will air at the following times:

  • Wednesday, April 13, 10:30am and 7:00pm
  • Thursday, April 14, 11:30am and 8:00pm
  • Friday, April 15, 2:30pm and 10:30pm

In her review of Lines that Divide, national pro-life advocate and nurse Jill Stanek says, "I promise this film is not boring, making excellent use of movie clips and celebrity sound bites in combination with graphics and interviews of scientists on both sides of the debate. Covered are not only ethics but women's health as well as media, political and terminology obfuscation."

An article from LifeNews states:
Most pro-life advocates can easily articulate the pro-life perspective when it comes to the issue of abortion. But when complex bioethics questions like embryonic stem cell research and human cloning arise, the ability to shape a sound argument escapes even some long-time pro-life activists.
That's where the film Lines That Divide comes into play.

Lines that Divide, produced by Biola University Chair of Cinema and Media Arts, Jack Hafer, looks into the scientific basics of stem cell research and the political issues surrounding it while asking significant questions such as if the end justifies the means.

The critically-needed film has already produced rave reviews.

"Lines That Divide is a much-needed tool for equipping concerned citizens with a comprehensive view of the science and ethics shaping the stem cell debate today," says Chuck Colson of Prison fellowship.

"The film spotlights the breakthroughs being made by adult stem cell therapy -- breakthroughs which are not receiving equal funding or equal media coverage. All of us who believe in supporting life should see this film and recommend it to others," he added.
