The hard truth is your teen could have an abortion without your consent,but would need permission to see the film Unplanned.
The film Unplanned seems to be so taboo that many major networks refused to air the commercials. The film was forced to take an “R” rating before it’s release since it depicts an abortion. There are countless films I do not care to see because they contain nudity, foul language, sexual situations, and violence. I would think films such as these would fall under an “R” rating. Commercials for these films are heavily aired before they hit the box office..
What has happened to our society when a film that aims to share the other side of abortion is shut out, while films that encourage rebellion are supported?
Many woman do not receive both sides of the story when they go to a clinic.. They are not told that the ‘fetus” feels pain, if they ask.. And are not advised that they may suffer post-abortion depression. And for the most part, the clinics do not discuss adoption as an alternative. I realize there are many absent fathers, yet in any case the father has no say.
I believe anyone considering an abortion should have all the facts before they make that critical choice.. not just scripted words painted rosey, to support their right to do so.
Society has changed so much that it often discourages parental involvement in a teens life. Most are rebellious yet still need guidance to make good choices that will affect their future. Did you ever imagine that there would come a day when parents had fewer rights over their children than the state in which they reside?.. I fear the day has come.
