.- Eduardo Verastegui, star of the movie "Bella", related at a fundraiser last Thursday the touching story of how he saved a baby from abortion while researching his role in the romantic drama about a woman with a crisis pregnancy.

He told the story as he held the little baby, “Eduardito,” at a pregnancy center banquet in Los Angeles.

"I decided to go to an abortion center to see if I could learn more about what women think and feel when faced with a crisis pregnancy,” Verastegui said.  While there, he met a couple seeking an abortion.  Speaking with them for 45 minutes, he offered them help, encouragement, and his phone number.

"Several months later," Eduardo continued, "I received a phone call from the man I met with the pregnant lady in front of the abortion center. He said, 'Hello Eduardo - this is Javier, and I have great news. My boy was born yesterday! I want to thank you and ask your permission - I would like to name him, Eduardo.'"

"I just put the phone down - I couldn't even talk," Eduardo said. "It's the most emotional thing I've ever done in my life. It changed my life. It was beautiful. I went to the hospital to meet them and see the baby. A few weeks later, I was holding little Eduardito in my hands. It was beautiful!"

"By the grace of God, I was able to save this baby," Verastegui said.
