A bit of Propaganda to Validate the Concept of every Sperm is Sacred
26 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Recurring themes through this film would have the viewer believe that this film is all about redemption, faith, and the power of forgiveness. Bull. This entire film is a propogandistic attempt to push an agenda:

Abortion is wrong on all fronts regardless of the reason.

I'm surprised they didn't make the character, Julie, dying from a rare form of ovarian cancer that she endures rather than abort the child to save her life. Perhaps even the film makers saw this as over the top.

Don't be fooled folks, this is a "Right-to-Lifer" film that places a much smaller value on the vessel (Julie) than either the unborn baby, or the rapist (Mike) who slowly is becoming a redeemed character through this heart-tugging drama.

The Christian ladies who see this will definitely have their heart warmed, the Christian men who see this will be able to say, "See - the Abortion Doctor I killed last week was deserving of what he got". The rest of us who see this will be waiting for the setup where Mike gets out of Prison, falls into Julie's trap, and is castrated for what he did as she confesses to aborting his diseased offspring from herself a week after the rape and let's Mike know it was her neighbor's baby she was passing off as her own.

Unfortunately, our happy ending will never come.
