"Americans who don’t go to church are happy to talk about religion and often think about the meaning of life.

"They’re open to taking part in community service events hosted at a church or going to a church concert.

"But only about a third say they’d go to a worship service, if invited by a friend. Few think about what happens after they die."

From Care Net

"Hush is filmed from the perspective of a pro-choice feminist, Punam Gill, and thus enters the sphere of multiple other documentaries formed from a similar vantage point, like The Abortion Diaries, and the soon to be released Trapped.

From National Review Online

'. . . We can never tolerate the injustice of laws that withdraw all recognition of the humanity of the unborn child from conception to birth. These are our brothers and sisters. I have always viewed the 'life issue' not as a single issue, but as a transcendent issue. Putting aside partisan politics, it should be clear that our society -- in social relations, political discourse, and just plain daily life -- is submerged in a simmering atmosphere of violence. The idea that we can unleash just a bit of violence, or use it against a limited class of people, and not have blood spill over everywhere is fantastical. I pray that I am wrong, but we are being pulled back and forth by volcanic forces. Awash in 'rights,' we are cruel to the innocent and the weak. There is no higher duty than to care for 'little ones.' It cannot end well when we consign that duty to the dustbin of history."

From Christ & Pop Culture

"For Nicolaou, the benefit religion provides is a sense of community, mutual support, and 'helping us understand our role in the cosmos.' As these ideas suggest, despite being unaffiliated, Nicolaou came to her quest with preconceptions about religion. Those preconceptions shaped her quest and limited what she would find as she meandered through four major religions and hundreds of congregations over a period of several years."
