There is a point to this
OK, so it's schmaltzy and a tear-jerker, and i'm not sure how the actual people involved feel about this film, but there is one very positive thing about this film. There are people out there who have to confront the issue of something going wrong with their pregnancies, and i would be the last to presume to tell them what they should do if it does, but this does at least put one idea of how to get something good out of the situation when it does happen. I don't really care about the motives of the makers of this film. Whatever they were, the important thing is that the life of someone in the world at some time could be saved by copying what happens, and the other pregnancy would also have been given a purpose which could help the grieving would-be parents. Three of my siblings died as babies as a result of problematic pregnancies, and a day never goes by in my life when i don't look at my own children and find it incredibly wonderful that they are in the world, healthy and alive. This is real and cannot be taken for granted. So basically i don't care how much of a sentimental mess this film is or how exploitative it is emotionally, because maybe someone's life somewhere will be or has been saved by it and that's all that matters.
