Did anyone else notice that the premise of this movie is strangely similar to a recent novel, ONLY WOMEN BLEED, by L.J. Rivard?  The main character in the novel learns on her twenty-first birthday that she survived abortion as an infant.  The novel’s main character, Jessica, also was born in October!  She goes on a quest to find out the truth about her beginnings, in particular, the woman who aborted her.  The book is not preachy at all, like some of the comments I’ve heard about the movie.  It’s a good read, written by a lawyer, and so I learned a little something about the state of abortion law in this country as a bonus.  ONLY WOMEN BLEED is available on amazon.
