Why is it so difficult only a couple of months after the movie originally came
out to find a theater to go see the move?
The extreme positions on both sides is crazy. Personhood at conception. Women
can kill an infant at the last moment of birth. Unbelievable.I
would hope that people can see that "human life" deserves respect. At
some point that "respect" for human life even outweighs the womans
"reproductive right" . The question is , where is that
point? It may be hard to define but adopting liberal Frances
position of no abortions after 3 months might be a good compromise. The
Supreme Court will not overturn Roe vs Wade but I fully expect them to add more
restrictions. We will see what happens but the old insults and
characterizations of each side doesnt help.
@The Atheist - Provo, UTHistorical precedents are reversed once
better information comes along. Slavery was once legal, but it shouldn't
have been. Abortion is currently legal, but it shouldn't be.
And one day, hopefully, it won't be legal beyond certain exceptions (rape,
incest, life of the mother, etc.) The 98% of abortions performed for the
mother's convenience will hopefully become a thing of the past (just like
BYUalum, I also saw "Unplanned" (twice). I can heartily
"second" the recommendation to go and see it. Take a friend or
neighbor, take your teenagers.
I have not seen "Unplanned," but I certainly commend Abby Johnson and
all others who have been a part of its production and promotion. I
am not in support of extreme bills that have been passed or may be passed in
certain states. They are beyond reasonable and sensible. However, I am certainly
glad that that there is a movement to make abortion much more restrictive. There
should be exceptions, but they should be few and far between. The
right to live does not need to include universal health care or other guarantees
of a certain standard of living. Some of the most accomplished and compassionate
humans have grown up in adverse circumstances, including limited health care,
education and other benefits that are great to have, but which cannot be handed
out equally in humanity. I have just met a young woman who was placed in a
Chinese orphanage because of physical attributes, but who grew and progressed
anyway, and is at a university learning skills to become an adoption placement
worker. Again, I appreciate all who have been advocates for the
unborn, in whatever capacity they have taken that role.
All mothers deserve the fundamental parental rights and right to privacy,
especially about their healthcare and information, required by the Constitution
and the Bill of Rights, as interpreted by the Supreme Court in numerous cases
I saw this movie, "Unplanned" when it first came out. I didn't want
to, but I heard it reviewed very positively on talk-radio. I am a member of the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and as such do not go to or view
"R" rated movies. I made an exception for this one because of the
reviews, and I was not disappointed. I think everyone, Pro-Life or Pro-Abortion,
should see this movie. It is a true story and portrayed in a very believable
down-to-earth fashion. It will give you plenty to think about forever after! I
have seen sex crimes and violence shown on my tv set and on Netflix 100x worse
than this film portrayed. They rated it R to keep people like me away.I'm so glad I saw "Unplanned", and I encourage everyone to see
this, the important movie of our time!
The talk heard from many of the pro-choice proponents sound eerily like the
pro-slavery and Holocaust supporters. It could be rationally argued that anybody
who treats another human being as a thing and not as a fellow child of God is
what is meant by the sign of the beast.
@flip phoneThen they must also deserve the right to continue living
past birth, right? So be a proponent of mandatory vaccinations, universal
healthcare, and sin taxes.Since all lives are sacred to you, I can
count on you to support those things, can't I?
"I don’t think the irony was lost on anyone that (in some states) a
15-year-old girl can go get an abortion without her parents’ consent but
cannot see a film about abortion without her parents’ consent."This is a rather poor attempt at irony. For one, a 15-year-old girl can
see this film. The MPAA rating system is just a guideline. If the girl sees the
movie without her parents, she isn't going to be arrested, the theater
owners won't be charged, and the producers won't be criminally
liable.Banning abortion will levy criminal liabilities on women and
providers. They aren't even in the same wheelhouse.
All unborn babies deserve the right to be born.
