Entirely predictable response. Must be striking a nerve.
Perfect, John, perfect!
It implies that carrying a baby to term is THE right choice. It conceals the fact that one-in-four pregnancies is terminated by abortion. The notion that one-in-four women might be making the wrong choice flies in the face of Secretary Sebelius determination that women have the right to make this choice and that insurers must cover it regardless of any psuedo conscientious objections.
I bet that is exactly what they think.
Brilliant, John! I came within a decimal point of falling for it.
Fooled me again, until I looked at the headings a second time. I was just about to say that the NARAL spokesperson, Adora Slaughter, was well named.
You can't make this stuff up.
As usual NARAL is all wet. Their assessment of the film is misleading. The film doesn’t say any of those things.
The film really is more about adoption and whether and when the adoptee should be told about his/her birth parents. Whether he/she should re-connect with the birth parents. The family dynamic.
The circumstances of the girl’s birth (failed abortion) really plays a minor element in this film, EXCEPT that she has suffered some medical consequences from the attempted abortion. And SHOCK! She finds that she had a twin brother who did NOT survive.
The really strong story line here is her supportive group of friends and her adoptive parents who help her deal with all of her emotions. It is a very good film, and I highly recommend it.
October Baby is said to be a good life-affirming movie.
NARAL’s response: “KILL IT! KILL IT! KILL IT!”
It seems that the term “crazy bitches” can be quite fairly applied to the members of NARAL.
