Sappy
30 July 2002 | by (MidWest) – See all my reviews

I suppose after winding through the story, the moral is that a woman's body is her own. I did not enjoy the convoluted way we are taken to that moral through this tale. I guess pro-lifers will enjoy it, but probably won't see that woman's body, woman's choice is a good thing.
