David A.R. White,
No doubt about it Touched By Grace is one touching movie. How could it not be when the subject is Down's Syndrome people and their acceptance in society at large. It's also a teen love story so how could it miss.
Stacey Bradshaw has moved to a new town and of course is trying to fit in. She's taken up with resident mean girl Blakely Bunnell who's into mean girl stunts like Bradshaw was in her former place of residence. She also would like to get something going with Ben Davies the resident high school hunk.
Davies has a Down's Syndrome brother John Franklin Stephens and is involved with a church youth group that accepts these kids one of whom is Amber House who bonds with Bradshaw. After that it's a struggle within Bradshaw over the good and bad impulses of her nature. It ends in tragedy for one of the principal cast members.
My niece when she was a teen was involved in a church youth group that had a ministry of sorts to Down's Syndrome people. It was personal for her because her aunt and uncle were involved. When her other grandmother had them, abortion was not an option especially in the church she was raised. Having them she gave them the best possible life they could have had. But not by choice. And those two I cite from my own family were not as well functioning as the Small or Stephens.
Yet the moral lesson here is that we should not abort Down's Syndrome fetuses now that we have the ability to check on that. In fact in some states it's even mandatory that the test be given. No wonder I saw this film on Christian television.
I don't think there will be too many feminists who will subscribe to the message of this film, touching that it is.
