I have posted stories before about this Woody Allen movie “Another Woman” and today I am going to revisit this movie.

Trailer for “Another Woman”

In 1984 I  traveled to Memphis and watched Jimmy Connors win the United States National Indoor tennis championships. I had been a big tennis fan for years. In 1971 I remember watching a 16 year old Chris Evert lose to Billie Jean King 6-3, 6-2 in the semifinals of the US Open. Both Connors and Evert won Wimbledon in 1974 while they were they engaged to be married. Sadly their wedding day would never come because of a selfish decision by Chris Evert. I have written before about those who has got an abortion for selfish reasons and when I read this story  about Chris Evert getting an abortion and it made me think of these two scenes from the Woody Allen movie “Another Woman.” Gena Rowlands  who is playing the part of Marion Post is sharing some of the regrets of her life since she turned 50.

“And then there’s chances gone by you can’t have back again…Maybe it would be nice to have a child.”

Then there is a flashback with a scene between her and her first ex-husband Sam (Phillip Bosco) when she revealed to him that she had an abortion without consulting him.

Sam: How arrogant! How self-centered and feelingless!

Marion: I told you I didn’t want a baby!

Sam: What do you mean, “didn’t want a baby?”

Marion:It was partly mine!-Except it’s my life that gets derailed.

Sam: I’m just destroyed!

Marion: You go on doing what you want, and I have to stop and bring it up.

Sam: But we’d share the responsibility.

Marion:You know it would devolve down to me.

Sam: I wanted this baby!

Marion: I told you, it was not part of my plan.

Sam:But you did it without consulting me.

Marion:Consulting you? It’s my baby! Do I have to consult you for every move I make? It’s your ego that’s hurt.

Sam:You said you wanted children.

Marion: I do, but not now.

Sam: I don’t have the future stretched out in front of me indefinitely.

Marion: It’s easy for you to say. You’ve done your work. I’m just starting out, trying to make something of myself! It’s not fair to the child.

Sam: But you could do it without asking me! Or giving me a chance to argue you out of it!

Marion: I didn’t want to be argued out of it. We’ve talked this to death! It was unwanted! Do you really want to bring a child into this world? Really? You’re the one that hates it so much, forever lecturing me on the pointlessness of existence.

Sam:I hate you so!

Marion:Let me go! Stop it! I can’t stand this any more! Let me go!

Sam:To be capable of such a lack of feeling! Knowing how I felt! Caring only about how you felt! Your career. Your life of the mind.

The character Marion from the movie “Another Woman” reminds me a lot of Chris Evert who would have probably not won the US Open and French Open in 1975 if she would have her baby then instead of choosing abortion. What is the difference between winning 16 versus 18 major championships? The difference may have been having her only daughter!!!!

We are all sinners and there is forgiveness. Jesus said to a judgmental bystander concerning a  promiscuous woman that wept at Christ’s feet, kissed them, and wiped them with her hair,  in Luke 7:47  “Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little.” We can all have that forgiveness today. Here is a great article from Randy Alcorn on the forgiveness of Christ that I hope everyone will take time to read. Also there is a great pro-life organization called   SILENT NO MORE that a great place to go involved if you need to recover from an abortion experience and help get over the guilt through finding forgiveness. Here is a story from a person involved in that ministry now:

Kelly Clinger
Kelly KlingerKelly Clinger has been singing and playing piano for many years. Once an extra on the Mickey Mouse Club and a background vocalist for Britney Spears, Kelly turned her life over to the Lord in 2003 after years of heartache and pain caused by the music industry, divorce, addiction and abortion. Now, at 35 years old, Kelly is married to Matt Clinger and has 2 children, Evin (age 15) and Logan (age 9). In November of 2010, Kelly wrote a painfully honest blog about her abortions and the trauma and hopelessness that ensued. It received over 10,000 views in the first 72 hours. Soon after, Kelly became a spokeswoman for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign. She feels that God has given her a voice for the millions of women who live in regret, guilt, self-hatred and a voice for the unprotected children in the womb.Kelly is also a worship leader and a songwriter, and in 2008 she recorded an album titled ‘In Your Delay’. It is a collection of original songs that the Lord has given her to tell stories, ask questions, and bring a message of peace and joy in the midst of waiting.Kelly travels frequently to lead worship and tell her story of turning her pain into purpose. She currently lives in Georgia with her family and is part of the International House of Prayer Atlanta. For more information, please visit: The Official Kelly Clinger Website
