So hypocritical
27 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

Only watched part of movie, did not see the ending. First things first. If the boy really cared about the girl then she would have seen that in the beginning. He mentioned "a couple of months inconvenience" Really? Two months of pregnancy? He hit the doctor, carrying a gun could have really injured him and then kidnapped a minor all because of his belief system. To say whether she was willing or not to go with him she could have been afraid of him. I doubt that I would have ever chosen abortion, but I really despise all these self-righteous hypocrites, especially the religious ones.

I hope if she did have the baby she put it up for adoption. And where were the women to support her decision? All I saw was a bunch of male tyrants trying to impose their views.
