As a frame for understanding how often abortions result in live births, Willard Cates, then head of the Abortion Surveillance Branch of the Centers for Disease Control, told the Philadelphia Inquirer in 1981 that 400 to 500 live births during abortion attempts were reported to the CDC annually, and that he believed that there were many more, since reporting a live birth to the authorities was "like turning yourself in to the IRS for an audit." In comparison, roughly 300 people in the US are struck by lightning annually. See more »

I feel dead inside.
No something worse than death.
I am still a child, a child trying to find a place on this world.
I have so many unanswered questions, questions I feel but can't even begin to speak because there are no words to express them.
Something is missing.
Why do I feel unwanted?
Why do I feel I have no right to exist?
Why do I spend more time wanting to end my life than live it?

I saw October Baby a couple of days ago, and this is a powerful movie that shows how God can bring beauty from our most painful experiences. I was concerned how the film would portray this difficult, sensitive and polarizing issue, but it was well-balanced and exhibited compassion for every character. I found myself completely caught up in the story and never got the feeling that the movie was dragging. I have a 14-year-old daughter and would not hesitate to let her see this movie; however, I believe the subject matter is a little strong for children under 13. If you are looking for a movie that honors God and his power to redeem and heal,this is a must see.
