Worth Watching: 22 Weeks

Here’s a low budget film which was released late in 2008.  The film “22 Weeks” shows the hidden side of abortion.  It is based on the shocking World Net Daily article by Ron Strom, about a woman in her 30s named Angele who went for an abortion at an Orlando clinic in April 2005, while 22 weeks pregnant.  The film is scheduled to be shown in Washington, D.C., Jan. 21, the day before the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion, and the annual March for Life protesting the decision.  The official web site for the film is http://22weeksthemovie.com/index-flash.html, and you can go to http://22weeksthemovie.com/ to check screening dates, to purchase the DVD, or to request a screening of the film in your school or community.

The abortion controversy stems out of some people’s adamant and sometimes prideful fight for a “woman’s choice.”  But at what price? is this blogger’s incessant question.

Worth Watching: 22 Weeks — 1 Comment

  1. I consider myself pro-choice. I believe in a woman’s right to decide what to do with her life, body, etc. However, it truly bothers me when they try to argue whether the embryo is, in fact, a human child. What else could it possibly be? It was conceived by two humans, was it not? If allowed to develop and grow and be born … would it not be a baby? It is a hideous decision and I respect the individual’s right to make it. However, I believe more attention should be given to the prevention of pregnancy and, more importantly, RESPONSIBLE behavior. To use abortion as a birth-control measure and then to claim it is not the killing of a child is reprehensible. I believe the decision to have an abortion should be between the woman and God. Period. The woman is the one that is going to have to live with that decision for the rest of her days. However, I also believe that if you are going to make that decision, if you are “woman” enough to have sex, then be woman enough to say yes, this is my decision, I am responsible for it and I am facing the consequences. Being a woman is not just about having sex when and with whom you choose. Being a woman is about being responsible for your decisions and behaving accordingly. Taking responsibility for one’s actions is something that is sadly lacking in today’s moral environment. That being said, I believe cases of rape and incest are special (and horrifying) circumstances and different matters altogether.
