its to be or not to be
2 September 2020 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

In a strange world of surrogacy, trading babies for a dime, doing the job for somebody that cant retrieve or that stands in a que for adoption etc etc.

in this case there are the issue of downs syndrome, and you may sense the vibes of an organization or conservative trade wind that every life do have the right to live. its the heartbreaking struggle to choose between abortion or not.

its a slow film, it has got some racial dillemas to it also as the pregnancy is born by a single black woman with no great reserves, and the surtainty that a single white mother would easier be helped forward and supported by the health care.

its been made 1000's of its kind, this one may angle a bit different, it will either make you glad or mad, depends on you view of an unborn life. the grumpy old man saw it and it was not a thrill, but drama it is, on low budget.
