Ellen Page, Jennifer Garner Use Pro-Life Film to Benefit Abortion Giant
On April 8, the makers of Juno are hosting a live read of the movie’s script as a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood. The Los Angeles reading will feature an all-female cast, including original Juno stars Ellen Page and Jennifer Garner. The hit 2007 movie followed the story of a teenager who gives up her baby for adoption following an unplanned pregnancy.
However, Juno director Jason Reitman denies that the movie promoted a culture of life. According to Entertainment Weekly, Reitman wanted the reading to “resolve one point of debate” about the film: that it was about choice, not life.
“If there was any confusion about whether Juno was pro-choice or pro-life, this should settle that,” Reitman insisted. “Juno had a choice, and that was the most important part.”
But the reason pro-lifers marvel at the film goes way, way beyond the good news that she doesn’t take her child’s life. Let me cite just a few qualities about “Juno” that are pro-life in a way that goes well beyond the happy outcome.
