Baby BluesDownloadable Video - 1990
Baby Blues, a fast-paced drama made especially for teenage viewers, is a compelling discussion-starter on the topics of sex, responsibility, and contraception. Kristen appears to have it made--she's bright, she's talented, she's popular. Her world begins to crumble when she suspects that she may be pregnant. Suddenly she and steady boyfriend Jason are forced to face some difficult questions. Will they keep the baby? What are their feelings about abortion? What about adoption? How will their choice affect their future plans? Baby Blues reflects the teenage point of view without moralizing or sugar-coating the issue. This open-ended film presents options without giving advice. It dramatizes the consequences of ignoring birth control in a way that breaks through the "it can't happen to me" barrier. Appropriate for classroom use, including: Sexuality Education, Family Life Studies, Values Education and Contemporary Issues.
