OWL 7-9 Session 21: Unintended Pregnancy Options
Update from Unitarian Universalist Church of Charlotte
Objective: To use media to facilitate discussion of both abortion and adoption and perhaps allow for reflection of feelings.
Recommendation: Instead of the Reading play movie clip from Juno, scene 7 “Fingernails”, stop the clip before she goes into the clinic. Reflect on how both teens in the clip might be expressing their beliefs. Wrap up by playing the movie clip, scene 9 “Anything but this”, stop clip after they discuss who the father is. Spend some time reflecting on how the parents feel, how the girls feel trying to relay the news and any emotions among the class regarding the decision to do adoption.
