Juno: The Accidental Pro-Life Film

If you haven’t seen the movie Juno, don’t worry I won’t spoil it here.  I recently saw it.  It’s a comedy about a teenage girl who is “unintentionally” pregnant-ed by her teenage boyfriend.  It is the story of her decision to give the child up for adoption to a seemingly ‘perfect’ yuppie couple instead of seeking a “hasty abortion” to quote her.  Well, the film takes some getting used to as it has the likings of a teenage cult-film along the lines of Napoleon Dynamite.  I’ve also heard that if you have kids in the 13-24 age bracket that it might freak you out a bit as to what kids are up to and talk about today.  So, I’ve also heard it’s one of those movies that gets better if you give a second and third try.  Anyhow, despite the Hollywood producers, it is an “accidental” pro-life film.  In my opinion, it is a redeeming film for that reason.  Beyond that, it has much redemptive value as we see choices we make in life change us and define us.  So, see Juno if you haven’t already and chime in if you want.
