This move was both educational and entertaining. Involves this deeply emotional issue of our time. Gently conveys the difficult dilemna presented to women and society. Definitely PRO-Life. Great life lessons for teenagers both boys and girls ! Highlights the need for forgiveness.

There are few issues more bitterly divisive than abortion, with emotions and rhetoric running at fever pitch. October Baby is a faith-based movie that resides staunchly in the pro-life camp.
