According to Advocates for Youth, there are more than 750,000 unplanned teen pregnancies in the United States each year. Many of these girls find themselves in situations where they must face the extremely difficult question of… what next? Each and every girl that finds themselves in this situation is unique, but a common factor in the midst of this situation is fear. Some face the fear of rather or not they want to give their child away after birth, and debate prospects of the life they’d be able to provide for their unborn child. Many of them debate whether they want to go through with having a child at all.
Abortion is not only a very sensitive and personal decision, it’s one that can never be reversed. In the movie Alison’s Choice, Alison finds herself facing this very real situation. The movie gives a quick preview into Alison’s life just prior to the events that led to her experience at an abortion clinic, alone. During her time there Alison runs into several people who play a very big role in this pivotal life changing moment in Alison’s life.
From the nurse at the counter, the counselor who elicits their help, the teenage girl sitting in the lobby preparing for yet another abortion… each person makes a major impact. The most notable impact, however, is made by the character who portrays himself as a janitor for a majority of the movie. While watching this character transform throughout the movie, you’ll see Alison transform herself.
This movie will pull your heartstrings as you get an inside glimpse into the emotions, pressure, the factor of stress and other things that must be faced by girls in this situation. While Alison may be a fictional character, the movie does a great job in allowing viewers to take a very sensitive topic that is often kept private, and understand from a perspective that they may have never otherwise had the opportunity to.
