Thought Provoking
17 August 2004 | by (Delaware) – See all my reviews

This movie puts forth the true picture of the issue of what "choice" is really supposed to be about.

Abortion is not the only "choice" available to women, and perhaps it isn't always the best medical decision. Women deserve to know what all their options are, pro and con, to make mature and informed decisions.

The moral of this particular movie is that even a woman facing a life-threatening pregnancy has the final say while everyone else is pressuring her to save her own life at the expense of her child's, and her decision should be respected.

Valerie Bertinelli does a superb job as a woman sticking to her pro-life principles.

This is a very serious and thought-provoking movie with no easy answers.
