While at Sundance this week, I’m thinking about the film “Juno” which has been nominated for the Academy Awards. As Diane Winson at the USC Knight Chair for Media and Religion points out, “Juno” gets an Oscar nod on the 35th anniversary of Roe versus Wade.
What’s Hollywood telling us about the younger generation and the national consensus on abortion? Is the culture changing? Is that change happening based on compelling stories like “Juno” rather than the more hostile (or at least confrontational) rhetoric of religious leaders of the last 35 years? Should the pro-life movement consider changing strategy? What do you think?
