'Bridget Jones's Baby' Slammed by HuffPost Reviewer for Not Discussing Abortion on Screen
By Samuel Smith, Christian Post On September 21, 2016
Huffington Post blogger Larua Goldman has criticized the recently released film "Bridget Jones's Diary" simply because abortion and birth control were not discussed as options in the movie.
In "Bridget Jones's Baby," the third movie of the "Bridget Jones" trilogy, the over 40 Bridget Jones (played by Renée Zellweger) breaks up with her boyfriend and then shortly after develops a new love interest. When she ends up getting pregnant, Jones is unsure of who the father is.

Although some women in that situation might consider getting an abortion, Jones decides to carry the child to term.
Goldman, a freelance booker and producer for ABC's "Good Morning America" and a contributor to the Daily Mail and the Huffington Post, wrote in her review that the movie "generates a belly laugh a minute" and shows why Zellweger "is the queen bee of romantic comedies easily surpassing other pretenders to the throne such as Kate Hudson and Sandra Bullock."
