Ludwig von Beethoven would not exist if his mother, a women violently abused by her husband, had decided to terminate her pregnancy.

That's the main message of director Jason Jones' new short film Crescendo, screened in March at the UN.

Mr. Jones, an anti-abortion activist, highlighted that Crescendo is not an ideologically driven film, but rather the true story of a woman who made a decision that changed the course of history.

Stephanie Coutrix met with Jason Jones who described the movie and the reasons for his activism.
