October Baby

octoberbaby.jpg October Baby

My Mom and I drove to a different city to support this movie, and we were not disappointed!  This movie is about a 19 year old girl named Hannah who finds out that all of her medical problems (hip surgeries, asthma, emotional depression) are connected: they are all the product of Hannah's accidental birth, accidental because she survived an abortion.  She strikes out against her parents when she finds out that they have been hiding this fact- that she is an adopted abortion survivor- from her and goes on a road trip to try to find answers.  I do not want to say anything else for fear of ruining the movie, but I would love it if as many people as possible would support this movie while it's still in theaters.  It is extremely pro-life, an amazing story, and will definitely capture the hearts of all who watch it.  

What I liked:
Everything.  The movie touched on all the facets of abortion, from the pain it causes the mother to the horrific way it kills the baby (though this is not shown, it is described without being too graphic).  All of the outfits are modest, the love story is extremely respectful and well-done, and there's even a scene in a Catholic Church with a kindly priest who help set Hannah on the right track.  It's never too preachy, and never has that "low-budget" feeling.

Possible Concerns:
Outside of the fact that this movie does touch on some sensitive areas in a way that might disturb young children, there is nothing wrong with this movie.  Not a single curse word, inappropriate love scene, or suggestive song.

I hope everyone will try to see this incredible movie.  I absolutely loved it, and cannot wait to buy it on DVD.  In a time when so many trashy movies with lust-filled love stories are popular, this is truly a breath of fresh air.  I have a feeling God is going to use this movie to touch minds and hearts in a beautiful way!

May God bless those who made, supported, and participated in this wonderful pro-life film.
