Evangelist Nick Vujicic Attends ROE V. WADE Premiere: ‘All of Life has Value’
By Movieguide® Staff
Evangelist and author Nick Vujicic boldly shares his testimony and the story of his life without arms or legs globally. Vujicic is adamant that all life has value and that “God has a plan” for His creation.
In a recent interview with the Christian Post, Vujicic shared his reaction to the movie premiere of ROE V. WADE, shown at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Feb. 26.
“Many people have asked me, especially over the last 18 months, ‘What happened, what really happened in our country for it to be where it is?’ And I really believe that it started with the family,” Vujicic told CP.

Pro-life filmmaker Nick Loeb directs and stars in his newest movie, ROE V. WADE, which has gained buzz leading up to its release due to its honest and diligent look into abortion…
Loeb, 45, co-wrote and co-directed ROE V. WADE alongside Cathy Allyn. He also stars in the lead role, playing real-life Dr. Bernard Nathanson, a famous abortion doctor who later converted to the pro-life view. The movie follows the events leading up to and beyond the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision. It features many well-known conservative actors such as Jon Voight, Robert Davi, Corbin Bernsen.
Loeb also noted his unique approach by laying out the story through the eyes of Dr. Nathanson.
Vujicic encouraged people to turn to God and Scripture for the ultimate explanation of why life matters.
“I also believe that it started with the church and understanding that we must hold on to what God has given us, the basics of what He’s given us in Scripture — that all of life has value, that all of life God can use for His purpose. And that even though we don’t get a miracle, we can still be one,” Vujicic said.
Vujicic’s life and personal struggle are a testament to God’s faithfulness. No medical explanation could be found when Vujicic was born in the early ’80s. Growing up, Vujicic struggled through the physical and mental battles, which often left him depressed and lonely, according to his biography.
However, Vujicic credits his faith in God for overcoming his many challenges and working to share the Gospel through his story.
“No matter who that child is, no matter what the doctors say, God has a plan. When God says He’s got a plan, a good plan, He can take whatever we have and use it for good,” Vujicic said.
Vujicic added that faith and trusting in God’s plan are the key components to having victory over earthly struggles.
“You got to trust in God. And that’s the pinnacle and epiphany of faith — to understand that only God can do that,” Vujicic said. “Only God can use the man without arms and legs to be His hands and feet and call him to stand in front of the gates of Hell and redirect traffic.”
“When we stand in front of the gates of Hell and redirect traffic, that’s when we understand that what is for man impossible — it is possible with God!” he added.
