Alison's Choice- DVD Review AND Giveaway!

Alison's Choice is a film about life.  Alison is a young girl who discovers she is pregnant.  Her boyfriend doesn't care and Alison feels scared and anxious.  She turns to the only option she sees: Abortion.  As she spends the morning at the clinic she encounters many people of differing opinions and bits of wisdom.  The sweet receptionist allows Alison to get some fresh air.  The eager counselor wants Alison to consider all her options.  The inner city girl urges Alison to go for it until her boyfriend shows up and she changes her mind and invites Alison to her baby shower.  A nurse finds Alison waking up from a bad dream and convinces her life will be so much better without having to care for a child.  A doctor sweetly persuades Alison to think about the procedure in scientific facts.  Alison's mind begins to doubt and have questions and then a janitor begins to chat with her.  She finds out that he is Jesus!  He's come to plead with Alison for the life of her child.  When the receptionist finally calls, "Alison, we're ready for you."  What will she choose?
I can just imagine all the feelings and emotions that are flooding through Alison in this tense situation.  She feels out of control and has to make a life altering decision.  She is bombarded by so many voices, but I love that she continues to listen to voice of God throughout.  She sees that despite all the ideas and beliefs being presented to her, she can ultimately make the choice that Jesus so desperately is asking her to make.  This film is an excellent way to share with teenagers, young women and any other woman who is considering abortion.  Choose life!
