A potently dramatic tale of clashing ideologies where the middle ground appears to have vanished entirely.
Audience Reviews for 12th & Delaware
What's the everyday life in the abortion debate like? You won't find out by talking to celebrities or learning about courtcases. You will find out by seeing real people in action. As someone who was viewing this movie from a pro-life perspective, I found this film to be impartial and thought-provoking. It's not the type of film that's going to make anyone happy. However, a lot can be learned from it. Keep in mind that this smalltown community, abortion clinic, crisis pregnancy center, and the people involved are really unique. The film can't be generalized. This is the review on my blog: http://delesmuses.blogspot.com/2010/07/abortion-personalized.html
This film shows just how manipulative some pro life centers can be and the outrageous lenghts they will go to insure the outcome of each girls pregnency is to there liking and beliefs. As I watched I wondered if it is only the Catholic church and it's followers who are acctive pro-life advocates as no other religon's followers seemed to be a focus of the director, leaving the viewer to assume this is a battle strictly between Catholics and women who seek abortions. Some good points were made but most of the film centered on the pro-life clinic and there tactics. Worth watching either way if not just for an insight/education but also to see how both sides act and react. Just be prepaired for a heavier dose of pro-life footage.
