Juno — Some thoughts

With Juno now out in wide release, there has been plenty of buzz about it. While a movie about teens exploring sex might not seem like a good thing in conservative circles, it has generated favorable reviews from more than one writer extolling its — even if it’s unintentional — pro-life viewpoint.

There is some hesitation in this household to have my 14-year-old daughter see it since the family movie guide I read in the paper talks about a “discreet sex scene” that opens the movie. “Discreet?” The point is, teen pregnancy is something worth talking about and it is good to see a movie not coming from an expressly Christian viewpoint giving a favorable view to saving a baby’s life, even when it is inconvenient for the mother and the alternative would not be frowned on (by the non-Christian world).
