New ‘Roe v. Wade’ movie documents controversial 1973 US Supreme Court ruling

Since 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion has been a point of sharp controversy and debate nationwide that appears no closer to being settled now than it was back then.

A new movie with a pro-life message bearing the same name as that landmark case, while not exactly a documentary, nonetheless purports to be a fact-based accounting of how that ruling came to be and provides additional details on some of the participants in the monumental decision, Newsbusters reported.

Hollywood and abortion

The Roe v. Wade movie was co-directed, co-produced, and co-written by Nick Loeb, who also stars as a pro-abortion doctor who experiences a change of heart with regard to the fatal procedure for unborn babies.

The film also features a number of major Hollywood stars — some openly pro-life, others pro-choice — including Jon Voight, who portrays Chief Justice Warren Burger, as well as Robert Davi, Stacey Dash, and Corbin Bernsen, among many other recognizable actors.

Intended to present facts

Interestingly, Loeb revealed in an interview that the movie isn’t necessarily aimed at confirming the beliefs of pro-life people or even instantly changing the minds of those who are pro-choice, but rather to simply present the facts of the matter as accurately as possible and give everyone “pause” to consider what they thought they knew in a new light.

“It may not change someone’s mind, but it will give somebody pause,” Loeb said, citing the example of the reaction of one cast member that he declined to name. “She’s no longer pro-choice. She still wants to be an actor in Hollywood, so I can’t tell you who it is.”

“The majority of our cast was pro-choice … the majority of conservatives in our cast were pro-choice,” he explained. “You can actually be a Republican [in Hollywood]. They work and do well other than Voight,” but added, with very few exceptions, “What you can’t be is pro-Trump, and you can’t be pro-life.”

“Fact check” for the movie established

“Our goal was not to make a, hit-you-over-the-head, preachy, faith-based movie. It’s historically accurate,” Loeb said. “I don’t come from the faith world. I come from the Hollywood world.”

Regardless, the effort has already faced an uphill battle over the past few years in even being completed in the first place, as it was opposed both openly and behind the scenes by the predominately pro-choice Hollywood crowd, and will undoubtedly be panned by critics and accused by the media of being filled with lies and misinformation about abortion.

To that last point, however, Loeb noted that steps had been already been taken to counter that by way of an official “fact check” website for certain aspects and scenes of the film, as Loeb realistically understands that the media critics don’t seem to care about facts and evidence. He said, “It doesn’t really matter. Hollywood will come out and say, ‘you lied’ anyway. They’ve already done it to us.”

The new Roe v. Wade movie was set to be released publicly on April 2, and it remains to be seen how well or poorly it will be received by audiences and critics, who more often than not tend to have opposite reactions to the films they watch.

  5. Biden is sick, where is the report he is fit to serve? impeachment time, his actions are not reflective of American values, he is trying to ruin our Country, and hope all of his actions take away from the fact, his family [son] got 200 million from communist China. Defunding police return us to days of vigilante justice, radical democrats, this will open a Pandora’s box of righteous justice extremist, seeking their ideal of justice, instead of established law, provided by our courts and society. If law and order is not allowed to continue, the radical left “under Biden” will destroy out country from within. these deceivers attained a political voice, positions of authority. must be removed and voted out of office, they are not true Americans, and don’t abide by American values, or our American Justice system. Democrats in office now, lack any ability to govern, tax spend policy does not solve problems, without police force to serve, we will have total chaos in society.

  6. Chief Justice Roberts needs to be impeached and recalled. His title and position should be appointed to SCOTUS Clarence Thomas. SCOTUS Clarence Thomas adheres strictly to the Constitution where Roberts adheres to the Left leaning Dems instead!

  7. It’s amazing how some people work off the idea that killing babies is a right because 9 black robes merely said you can’t be prosecuted for it with the Roe v. Wade decision. Abortion is a court decision, not a right or a law and is, in fact, contrary to all three of the basic tenets of the “Declaration of Independence”, the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness [except for babies in the womb, right?]. The constitution addresses these three in its entire discourse without any reference to deity, so the attempt at characterizing supporters of life as religious zealots is intellectual fraud. Quite frankly, it never entered into the mind of the sane people who wrote the constitution, that a prohibition on the barbarism of destroying human life in the womb would ever become necessary. There is an ancient, religious historical reference to baby killing though and that is the temple prostitutes or any prostitute who needed to rid herself of the “inconvenience” of rearing a child, simply sacrifice their babies to the pagan god Moloch, Baal or Baphomet. Piece a cake…I worship my deity by “sacrificing” the impediment child to it…voila’, we kill two birds with one stone. So yeah, abortion is connected to somebodies religion.

  8. Abortion by any measure is the taking of a humans life at any time of the pregnancy. Anyone agreeing with this is complicit in the murder of a human being. Roe v Wade needs to be overturned despite what anyone in Hollywood thinks.
