2.0 out of 5 stars no real insight here, 7 April 2014
This review is from: Love in Action [DVD] (DVD)
This film does not go further than just further polarize viewpoints when it had such a good opportunity.

For example the film could have asked whether some of the people who were protesting are also active in the anti-abortion movement: abortion is an area where parental 'choice' is perceived to totally override an unborn child's right to life. I say 'choice' in inverted commas because many pregnant teens (and not so young too) are escorted to abortion clinics by those parents or others upon whom they are dependent. The unborn baby of course is not getting a choice on whether to continue living or be aborted.

That would be interesting because the pro-homosexual and so-called pro-'choice' views are often perceived to be held by the same people. Perhaps this is not so.

Homosexual couples who become parents through artificial means are also deliberately depriving a child from growing up with at least one of their biological parents. When do children/ parental rights trump one over the other? On what basis should children be supported to refuse to comply with parents' instructions ordinarily? Can we extend the states power to dictate that parents may only teach their children a state-sanctioned view? Where is democracy and freedom of thought and expression?

The issue of balancing parental and children's rights is a complex and deeply interesting subject. This film does not go deep.
