I was given a copy of this DVD by Front Gate Media in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
As a mom with two young daughters, it grieves my heart when I hear of a young woman becoming pregnant who believes their only choice is to end the life of their unborn child through abortion. My heart grieves as I think of the thousands of unborn babies who have lost their lives before they were given a chance to fully live.
In the movie Alison’s Choice, a young woman finds herself in such a situation. After telling her deadbeat boyfriend of her unplanned pregnancy, he encourages her to take care of it so that the baby doesn’t come between their relationship.
Alison drives herself to the abortion clinic and while she waits her turn, she encounters a cast of quirky characters, each with their own type of wisdom and advice — a flamboyant counselor, a suburban mom, a heart-weary receptionist, an inner city counterpart… And more than anyone else, a gentle-faced janitor with mop “eternally” in hand. The two begin to talk and it becomes very clear that he is no mere janitor, but Jesus manifest, and has come to plead for the life of her baby.
With the clock ticking precious minutes away, the janitor pours out His heart of care and compassion, reassuring Alison of his love for her and for her unborn child. What will Alison choose?
I really loved this movie. It is well made and the acting is very good. I do believe that God encounters women who are considering abortion in powerful ways, perhaps not exactly like it is portrayed in the movie. But the point is that God desires to meet every women who stands at the crossroads of making a decision for or against life and brings his light of truth — the truth that He loves them, and that He loves their unborn baby.
Alison’s Choice is a full-length feature film that seeks to answer the question, “WWJS (what would Jesus say) to a young woman planning abortion?”
