Pro-life leader Dr. Alveda King is teaming with Academy Award winner Jon Voight and others to produce a feature-length film uncovering the real story of America's legalization of abortion.
"Roe v. Wade: The Movie" will document the leadup to the U.S. Supreme Court's 1973 decision striking down legal protections for the unborn, exposing the popular narrative as a pro-abortion whitewash — a distortion of history by abortion sympathizers in politics and the media.
According to its website, the film opens with a look back at where it all began: the work of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger.
The movie recalls Sanger's appearance at a Ku Klux Klan rally, where she delivered a speech describing her plans to reduce population growth among the African-American population — part of her notorious "Negro Project."
"Roe v. Wade" then examines the mid-century lead-up to legalization. As the sexual revolution gets underway, obstetrician-gynecologist Dr. Bernard Nathanson joins a growing movement calling for abortion laws to be lifted.
In 1969, the New York doctor founded the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws — NARAL — later rebranded the National Abortion Rights Action League. A prolific abortionist himself, Nathanson later estimated he killed 60,000 unborn during his career — one of them, his own. He later rejected abortion and became a pro-life champion. Once a self-described "Jewish atheist," in 1996 Nathanson was received into the Catholic Church.
Next, the film depicts feminist Betty Friedan, whose 1963 book The Feminine Mystique sparked the Women's Liberation Movement, joining the cause.
Nathanson and Friedan unite with Planned Parenthood to lay the foundation for a legal test case, scouring the country in search of a woman carrying an unplanned pregnancy.
They find their ideal plaintiff in Texas: a penniless high school dropout named Norma Jane McCorvey, better known by her legal pseudonym, "Jane Roe." (McCorvey later became an ardent pro-life advocate and in 1998, and she converted to Catholicism.)
"Roe v. Wade" spotlights the activists' manipulation of McCorvey. They deceive the troubled young women, assuring her that if she agrees to sue the government, she'll be able to abort her child legally. All the while, they know perfectly well McCorvey will give birth long before the final ruling in her case.
The movie reveals that Nathanson, Friedan, Planned Parenthood and their whole abortion activist cabal were pioneers of "fake news." Once the case is launched in the courts, they feed false statistics and other manufactured data to the media to sway public opinion:
But there were a few people willing to step up to fight them. This fight is led by the film's protagonist Mildred Jefferson, the first African-American woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School. She believed that she became a doctor to protect life, not destroy it. Not only was she trying to save lives, she was trying to save her race. She joined the Catholics, other men, and other women, to try to educate Americans on the truth, but they were up against the most well-funded revolution in 20th century America. ... Although they did everything they could possibly do, the ban on abortion was overturned.
"Roe v. Wade: The Movie" is a landmark work, say project collaborators because it tells the truth — a first for depictions of the case.
The film presents "the real untold story of how people lied; how the media lied; and how the courts were manipulated to pass a law that has since killed over 60 million Americans," according to the project website. "Many documentaries have been made, but no one has had the courage to make an actual feature film, a theatrical movie about the true story."
"Hollywood only wants you to hear their version of the story — in fact, there are three movies currently in development that take a pro-abortion stance," it says. "But you shouldn't be surprised. Hollywood has always had an agenda to influence Americans to accept abortion, even if they have to re-write history to do it."
To help with funding, the project has launched an Indiegogo campaign.
"We need your help to fight for the lives of the unborn because Hollywood refuses to," producers say. "Our movie will not only shed a light on that truth but will also change hearts and minds. We have distribution on 1,000 screens so even if just one person changes as a result of this movie, we will have saved a life."
