A quick movie pick for you today.
I want you to watch Alabama Moon if you have ever felt obliged to carry out a parent’s wishes against your better judgment. The boy in this story models how to honor your parent and still follow your better heart. While this film is not overtly Christian and certainly not about pregnancy and abortion, it is extremely pertinent to the spiritual issues we may face after a choice for abortion.
This matters to me so much as I minister to those broken by abortion–so many followed along with their parents’ choices for them–many were threatened with being kicked out or being disowned or being forever disapproved.
I wish that everyone who has succumbed to parental pressure could see this movie and learn how the truth sets us free.
