You may not have heard, but a new film about the Supreme Court’s 1973 “Roe v. Wade” decision is debuting soon. You may not know about it because it’s been quietly filmed because of its pro-life stance.
And pro-President Trump actor Jon Voight has a starring role in it.
Voight — known for his role in movies like “Anaconda,” “Deliverance,” “Enemy of the State,” “Midnight Cowboy,” and “Mission: Impossible” — spoke at a “Make America Great Again” concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial the day before Trump’s inauguration, according to Fox News. He told the audience that “God answered all our prayers” when Trump won instead if Hillary Clinton.
Now the 80-year-old is playing the role of Supreme Court Justice Warren Burger, the predecessor to Justice Antonin Scalia. Burger, generally regarded as a conservative justice, voted against allowing states to ban abortion but later deeply regretted that decision.
The “Roe v. Wade” film’s pro-life creator, Nick Loeb, brings in modern footage of the news reports surrounding Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s turbulent confirmation hearings and compares it to the controversies surrounding the Supreme Court’s landmark 1973 decision, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“There's actually a lot of parallels between then and now," Loeb said.
“‘Roe v. Wade’ is the 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,” a GoFundMe campaign for the film states. “This is the most important movie to be made in our generation.”
“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,” it adds. “Hollywood only wants you to hear their version of the story — in fact, there are 3 movies currently in development that take a pro-abortion stance. 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.”
Because of the difficulty of filming a pro-life movie in the liberal Hollywood industry, Loeb made it under an assumed title. He lost multiple key staff members during the process after they realized the movie didn’t have a pro-choice bent.
There’s no official release date yet for “Roe v. Wade,” but Loeb is pushing for it to hit theaters this spring. Finding people to distribute that sort of film can be difficult.
He is debuting a full theatrical at a March for Life 2019 https://marchforlife.org/mfl-2019/ event in Washington, D.C. The rally, billed as the largest pro-life event in the world, will take place on Jan. 18. Pro-life activist Abby Johnson, conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, MLK’s niece Dr. Alveda King, and Archbishop Naumann are among the speakers, as well as several congressmen and women.
A teaser trailer for the movie has been released on YouTube:
