Storyline

Life Happens deals with the topic of abortion in a unique, personal and ultimately uplifting way. Director Ash Greyson, who was nearly aborted just months before the Roe vs Wade decision, sets out on a journey to find others like him. In the process he uncovers the divisive issues, eventually finds some common ground, and seals it all up with compelling first person stories from mothers and children who narrowly escaped abortion. While pulling no punches, he skillfully replaces rhetoric and religion with hope and heart in what may be the most approachable film ever created on the topic. Written by Chad Bonham

Impactful, informational, and accurate documentary on the issue of abortion.
11 March 2013 | by (Peoria, IL) – See all my reviews

Life Happens gave a great presentation of new information about the issue of abortion versus adoption. It made an impact on my life. The film was accurate in it's presentation of information. The filmmakers asked solid questions about both abortion and adoption. Life Happens sought to find solid answers to poignant questions. The answer were presented with a great amount of tact. Input was gathered from many leaders and experts in the field of medicine, science, and more.

So no matter which side of the issue you are on, this film is very revealing and eye-opening. It is a great learning tool!

I thoroughly enjoyed watching this film.
