Standard movie-of-the-week fare dressed up in Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes.
If this was standard fare then tell why as I was setting in the Theater that I saw people around me teary eyed and in some cases crying???
This movie reaches out and touches the social consious of America on a subject that is seldom discussed.
50 Million plus babies have been killed (like Hannah's brother) since Rowe vs Wade. It's time we all pay attention and see the wrong.

Gladly. Your audience was likely full of weeping moviegoers because it was most likely full of people who already identify with the movie's ideology. Part of the proceeds from the movie go to a pro-life fund, which people who aren't sold on pro-life might be uncomfortable contributing to.
Also, these 'babies' that are killed by abortion cannot think and cannot feel pain. That's why they're called zygotes.

Where do you get your info - I am an RN / BSN and yes babies may not understand pain as adults do, but i have always found it interesting that a "zygote" will retreat from an ultrasound wand. That clearly shows a reaction to stimuli. I think most pro-choice people spit out what they hear. The definition that a baby is not alive or capable of feeling is actually a legal definition that "a person is not deemed alive until they take there first breath" So in partial birth abortion they hold the "zygote" under water so it cannot breathe and sever the brain stem - Is it me or does this just sound wrong

Reaction to stimuli isn't the same thing and you know it, or at least you should. In fact, I'm surprised that a nurse would have used the political term "partial birth abortion" instead of the medical term "dilation and extraction", but why be intellectually honest when you can give people the false impression that the procedure involves killing a fetus while it's in the process of being born naturally?
I'm sure you have good intentions, Angel, but you don't have the right to command others to allow their bodies to be used to keep someone else alive. Even if that one person is the only person who can save the other's life. That's not your choice to make.

@Ellie, did you see the film? Do you know what a zygote is? Exactly how long is the fetus referred to as a zygote? You survived pregnancy, do you remember when you began to feel and respond to stimuli? If a child at say, 24 weeks gestation is removed from the womb and lives, is that child still a zygote? If the child lives to adulthood, does he/she feel pain yet? When exactly does a human begin to feel pain?

No, Kelly, I did not see the film yet. I'm waiting until the DVD release so I can rent it.
And yes, I did survive my pregnancy, but millions of my potential brothers and sisters who were also fighting to fertilize that egg did not. I don't weep for them because they never developed enough brain function to realize that they didn't make it. If they don't feel sorrow for not surviving the ordeal, why should I?
A fetus doesn't develop the ability to feel pain until the 18th week at the very earliest. Was there anything else you wanted to know?

Kelly. Is there anything else you think you might like to be doing with your time then fighting a religious war on Rotten Tomatoes?
Mar 31 - 02:22 PM
the average viewer rated it 4.5 out of 5. 89pct liked it. 'nuff said?

Not really, since the vast majority of people going to see it on their own are already sympathetic to its message and are therefore more likely to identify with the movie.

Who comments on movies they haven't even seen? What a strange thing to do.
Apr 5 - 08:57 AM
Someone who's replies to comments are correct, so that you cannot contest their validity. Which causes you to rather feel the insecure need to wrongfully demean the person.
Being correct in a statement may be strange to you, but she is right, it is a personal decision.

A lot of people, apparently.
