About this Video


Produced by Lou Buttino and featuring interviews with:

  • John Dear, S.J.

  • Eileen Egan

  • Nat Hentoff

  • Consuelo Beck-Sague; and

  • Juli Loesch Wiley 


Narrated by Will Campbell. In this unique, upbeat video lasting less than a half hour, five noted peace and justice activists tell why they have come to support the consistent ethic of reverence for life, and oppose war, abortion, the death penalty and euthanasia.


These speakers come from many backgrounds. One was originally in favor of the death penalty, and tells how she changed. One tells of his change to a prolife position on abortion, and the resulting friction with his colleagues. Several are visionaries with a clear picture of how life could be if we embraced a consistent ethic of life.


"An invaluable tool for promoting the consistent ethic, but also a fascinating and unusual experience, full of new ideas, and leaving the viewer energized and full of hope." -- Rose Evans, Editor, Harmony
