    In some states a 15yr old girl can get an abortion without their parents consent. So it’s ok for them to experience the horrors of abortion without fully understanding what they are consenting to, but not to see a film that depicts those horrors?

    My wife and I just saw the movie. It is powerful. Obviously it is going to speak Law to those who are complicit in the abortion industry. But it also calls Pro-Life Christians to repentance, as well. Too often we are quick to “hate” those who do evil, rather than praying for them and seeking God’s grace and forgiveness. The message of Life is a GOSPEL message; therefore it cannot be conveyed by the Law. If we want people to know that we love all life, it can start by loving those who are hardest (for us) to love.
    I pray that every Lutheran high school in America will buy this video and show it to their students (presumably as part of a Theology class).
    Go see it; and encourage everyone you know to see it. You won’t regret it!

    I am very disappointed in this review. I believe it will cause many who would have seen it, to stay away. The whole movie is told here in explicit detail, robbing movie goers of the discovery of the story as it unfolds. Warning of the difficult parts to view in such detail will keep many who deny the reality of abortion or those who won’t get involved because it’s uncomfortable, away. This will result in keeping them from vital information and truth about abortion. This review does a disservice to the movie and its purpose.

    Thank you for writing this review, it was very helpful for me in deciding whether or not I should go and see the movie. I do want to see it but I don’t think I can take anyone with me.

    I have been President of a Pro-Life Society chapter in Canada and am well aware of the issues. I am glad that films of this kind are being made but I do think sometimes we need not put everything on display – for example The Passion of The Christ was unnecessarily, in my view, violent.

    Phyllis, I agree and disagree. I have seen the movie and the descriptions of the “difficult” parts are accurate. I agree with the R rating. Abortion is violent. However, I disagree with the author’s decision to not take her 15 year old. That child should definitely see the truth of abortion. The Catholic school 8th graders in my city saw the movie. One father I know discussed the movie with his daughter and one of her main responses was her observation of the male students crying. As did I, age 62.
