I liked this one. It highlights the humanity of the unborn in a subtle way. Pro-life folks like myself tend to be less than subtle, so this is a much necessary film that keeps it real (the miscarriage happens in a mall bathroom). It’s called 12 Weeks. At 12 weeks gestation a baby’s body is very evident. And what to do, then, in a mall bathroom? This family decides together how to say goodbye. Also admirable is the fact that there is a personal story for the father, the writer of the film:
Not surprisingly, this film is a very personal one for Girard. He relates: “Having lived two miscarriages, I can say that these are really painful events for a couple trying to make up a small family. It is a sad situation, it hurts and I find that we speak little about it, especially that 10 to 15% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. It was after the birth of my daughter…that I decided to write 12 Weeks and to broach the subject.”
Abortion and miscarriage affect men, too.
You can watch the film, here.
