Actress Page Hopes Film Gets Teen Pregnancy Message Across
The rising star of acclaimed new indie movie JUNO hopes the film will make anti-abortionists think twice. Actress Ellen Page, who plays the pregnant title character in the offbeat comedy, insists the film pokes fun at family groups who want to stop young girls from correcting mistakes that leave them pregnant. She says, "The funny thing is that groups that are anti-abortion are also anti the things that you need to prevent pregnancy. "They just completely censor things and not talking about is the most illogical way of dealing. "Hopefully a film like this, that's way less judgmental and more democratic about the whole situation, allows a sense of openness that I wish more people had in regards to sex."
