#1 ‘Juno’ writer laments how life-affirming film inspired support for strong pro-life laws by Cincinnatus 21.05.2019 00:39


How sad. I have never seen this movie but have heard it is one of the very, very view which contains a Prolife message.


ast week, screenwriter Diablo Cody appeared on a Crooked Media podcast to discuss the new pro-life laws, and what role her 2007 film Juno, about a teenager who briefly considers abortion but ultimately chooses to let her child be born and adopted, may have played in making the culture more receptive to such laws.

Calling herself "as pro-choice as a person can possibly be,” Cody said she didn’t consider the potential political implications when writing the film, and that it was “horrifying” when she got a letter from her Catholic high school “thanking me for writing a pro-life movie." She recalled thinking in response to the letter, “I f***ing hate all of you.'”

"I don’t even know if I would have written a movie like ‘Juno’ if I had known that the world was going to spiral into this hellish alternate reality that we now seem to be stuck in," Cody said. She added that with hindsight, she wouldn’t have made Juno a pro-abortion film, but “probably would have just told a different story in general."
