Surprisingly emotional, kept my interest throughout
6 August 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I decided to watch because I had recently learned about two reputable national studies of women that were raped who subsequently became pregnant. Both studies found that 70% of women who became pregnant after being raped carried the baby to term. The majority of the women who had an abortion later deeply regretted the choice, but none of the women who carried the baby to term regretted that decision whether they kept the child or allowed it to be adopted.

I thought the movie handled the complexity of the issue well, from the perspectives of everyone who would be intimately involved: the young woman, her family, her friends and the man who assaulted her. Pregnancy after rape isn't as cut-and-dry as many would have you think. While the movie clearly has a Christian point of view, that shouldn't deter free thinkers from watching - if indeed they are willing to set aside their own biases.
