4 Things to Know about Roe v. Wade, the Movie about the Supreme Court’s Abortion Case

4 Things to Know about Roe v. Wade, the Movie about the Supreme Court’s Abortion Case

Michael Foust

Bernard Nathanson is a smart, young doctor with a drive to be successful and a desire to make money in 1970s America.

Bernard could take any path in the medical realm, but he opts to be an abortion doctor in the state of New York, which recently legalized the controversial procedure. The pay is good, the business is great, and the career trajectory is promising.

As he says, “there’s a fortune in abortion.”

There’s so much money to be made as an abortion doctor that Bernard flies to the United Kingdom to learn of a new procedure that will allow him to conduct an abortion in less than five minutes.

More than likely, he’ll need the new skill. That’s because the U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments in a case that could legalize abortion nationwide.

A pro-abortion rights decision would allow Bernard to take in even more patients and make even more money. It won’t, though, help him find the one thing he knows he lacks: peace.

The new movie Roe v. Wade, now on home video platforms, tells the Story of the famous Supreme Court decision through the eyes of Bernard Nathanson, an abortion doctor who was one of the co-founders of the pro-choice group NARAL, but who eventually turned pro-life.

Here are four things you should know about the film:

1. It Has a Few Well-Known Names

The movie’s strongest moments occur and around the courtroom, partially because of the actors who play the justices but also because of the intriguing drama. It stars Oscar winner Jon Voight (Ali, Runaway Train) as Warren Burger, Golden Globe nominee Corbin Bernsen (Major League series, Psych) as Harry Blackmun, Robert Davi (Die Hard) as William Brennan, Steve Guttenberg (Three Men and a Baby) as Lewis Powell, Wade Williams (Mercy Street, Ali) as William Rehnquist and John Schneider (Smallville) as Byron White. When the Roe decision was handed down in 1973, Justices White (nominated by President Kennedy) and Rehnquist (nominated by President Nixon) were the only two dissenting votes.

The film also stars Stacey Dash (Clueless) as pro-life doctor Mildred Jefferson, Joey Lawrence (Melissa & Joey, Blossom) as pro-life professor Robert Byrn, and Greer Grammer (The Middle, Awkward) as pro-choice attorney Sarah Weddington.

2. It’s the Story You’ve Never Heard

Narrated by Nathanson’s character, Roe v. Wade is part biopic, part historical drama, and part conspiracy drama. At least half the movie takes place outside the courtroom, giving the viewer the background for the most famous Supreme Court case of the past 50 years. It shows how supporters of abortion rights developed their legal case and how the pro-life community tried to counter it.

The film delivers multiple twists and turns that likely will surprise viewers. Some shocking moments revealed in the movie include Justice Potter Stewart’s wife, who voted with the majority in Roe, was a volunteer at Planned Parenthood, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger once spoke at a KKK meeting, clergy and rabbi rallied support for legalized abortion and Norma McCorvey, who was “Jane Roe” in the case, was lied to by her attorneys.

The movie’s website includes a “fact check” section pointing to documents backing up the claims.

3. It Includes Arguments from Both Sides

The plot of Roe v. Wade leans heavily to the pro-life side, but the movie also is fair to pro-choice arguments, especially in the courtroom setting. In fact, the legal arguments from the pro-choice attorneys sound similar to what a Planned Parenthood or ACLU attorney would say today.

“Life is an ongoing process,” a pro-choice attorney says. “It is almost impossible to define at which point life begins or perhaps even when life ends.”

The movie’s purpose, co-director and star Nick Loeb told Crosswalk, “is not to preach to the choir.

“The purpose of the movie is to show what happened. … These are the facts. Now, you decide,” he said.

Still, the film’s most powerful moments are when the pro-life side speaks. In a line taken verbatim from Supreme Court oral arguments, the attorney representing the pro-life position and the state of Texas tells the justices, “This court has been diligent in protecting the rights of minorities. And, gentlemen, we say this is a minority – a silent minority. … Who is speaking for these children? Who is counsel for these children?”

4. It Works Best as a Docudrama

Roe v. Wade includes several gripping moments that educate and even inspire, but it also has too many melodramatic scenes to make it a great movie.

Yet if you want to take a trip back in time to the 1960s and 1970s to learn how the Supreme Court legalized abortion nationwide – and subsequently ignited a culture war – then you’ll probably be pleased. If you view Roe v. Wade as an educational docudrama, it works.

And after the credits roll, conduct your own research. You’ll probably discover – as I did – that the movie’s most controversial moments are, in fact, true.

Dear Senator Booker,

I noticed that you signed a 2017 letter strongly supporting the filibuster. 
Why are you thinking about abandoning that view now?

Does your change of view have anything to do with Biden now being in office?


Democrats distance themselves from previous pro-filibuster stance, citing GOP obstruction

More than half of current Senate Democrats and VP Harris signed 2017 letter supporting filibuster when GOP was in control

Tyler Olson

By Tyler Olson | Fox News

As progressives push hard for Democrats to eliminate the legislative filibuster after gaining control of the Senate, House and the presidency, many Democratic senators are distancing themselves from a letter they signed in 2017 backing the procedure.

Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Chris Coons, D-Del., led a letter in 2017 that asked Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., to preserve the legislative filibuster. As it’s existed for decades, the filibuster requires 60 votes in order to end debate on a bill and proceed to a final vote.

“We are writing to urge you to support our efforts to preserve existing rules, practices, and traditions” on the filibuster, the letter said.

Besides Collins and Coons, 59 other senators joined on the letter. Of that group, 27 Democratic signatories still hold federal elected office. Twenty-six still hold their Senate seats, and Vice President Harris assumed her new job on Jan. 20, vacating her former California Senate seat.

But now, the momentum among Senate Democrats is for either full abolition of the filibuster or significantly weakening it. President Biden endorsed the latter idea Tuesday, announcing his support for a “talking filibuster.”

KAMALA HARRIS SUPPORTS CHANGE TO FILIBUSTER IN SENATE TO LIMIT MINORITY PARTY POWER

“I don’t think that you have to eliminate the filibuster, you have to do it what it used to be when I first got to the Senate back in the old days,” Biden told ABC. “You had to stand up and command the floor, you had to keep talking.”

The legislative filibuster has been a 60-vote threshold for what is called a “cloture vote” — or a vote to end debate on a bill — meaning that any 41 senators could prevent a bill from getting to a final vote. If there are not 60 votes, the bill cannot proceed.

The “talking filibuster” — as it was most recently seriously articulated by Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., in 2012 — would allow 41 senators to prevent a final vote by talking incessantly, around-the-clock, on the Senate floor. But once those senators stop talking, the threshold for a cloture vote is lowered to 51.

Harris’ office confirmed to Fox News Wednesday that she is now aligned with Biden on the filibuster issue. She’d previously taken an even more hostile position to the filibuster, saying she would fully “get rid” of it “to pass a Green New Deal” at a CNN town hall in 2019.

Coons, who led the 2017 letter along with Collins, has also distanced himself from his previous stance.

BIDEN SUPPORTS CHANGING SENATE FILIBUSTER 

“I’m going to try my hardest, first, to work across the aisle,” he said in September when asked about ending the filibuster. “Then, if, tragically, Republicans don’t change the tune or their behavior at all, I would.”

Fox News reached out to all of the other 26 Democratic signatories of the 2017 letter, and they all either distanced themselves from that position or did not respond to Fox News’ inquiry.

“Less than four years ago, when Donald Trump was President and Mitch McConnell was the Majority Leader, 61 Senators, including more than 25 Democrats, signed their names in opposition to any efforts that would curtail the filibuster,” a GOP aide told Fox News. “Other than the occupant of the White House, and the balance of power in the Senate, what’s changed?”

“I’m interested in getting results for the American people, and I hope we will find common ground to advance key priorities,” Sen. Tim Kaine. D-Va., said in a statement. “If Republicans try to use arcane rules to block us from getting results for the American people, then we’ll have a conversation at that time.”

Added Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va: “I am still hopeful that the Senate can work together in a bipartisan way to address the enormous challenges facing the country. But when it comes to fundamental issues like protecting Americans from draconian efforts attacking their constitutional right to vote, it would be a mistake to take any option off the table.”

“Senator Stabenow understands the urgency of passing important legislation, including voting rights, and thinks it warrants a discussion about the filibuster if Republicans refuse to work across the aisle,” Robyn Bryan, a spokesperson for Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., said.

Representatives for Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., pointed to recent comments he made on MSNBC.

“Yes, absolutely,” Casey said when asked if he would support a “talking filibuster” or something similar. “Major changes to the filibuster for someone like me would not have been on the agenda even a few years ago. But the Senate does not work like it used to.”

MCCONNELL SAYS SENATE WILL BE ‘100-CAR PILEUP’ IF DEMS NUKE FILIBUSTER

“I hope any Democratic senator who’s not currently in support of changing the rules or altering them substantially, I hope they would change their minds,” Casey added.

Representatives for Sen. Angus King, I-Vt., who caucuses with Democrats, meanwhile, references a Bangor Daily News editorial that said King was completely against the filibuster in 2012 but now believes it’s helpful in stopping bad legislation. It said, however, that King is open to “modifications” similar to a talking filibuster.

The senators who did not respond to questions on their 2017 support of the filibuster were Sens. Joe Manchin. D-W.Va.; Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.; Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.; Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H.; Michael Bennet, D-Colo.; Martin Heinrich, D-N.M.; Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio; Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.; Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.; Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii; Cory Booker, D-N.J.; Maria Cantwell, D-Wash.; Maize Hirono, D-Hawaii; John Tester, D-Mont.; Tom Carper, D-Del.; Maggie Hassan, D-N.H.; Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill.; Jack Reed, D-R-I.; Ed Markey, D-Mass.; Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I.; and Bob Menendez, D-N.J.

Some of these senators, however, have addressed the filibuster in other recent comments.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., on Wednesday was asked if she supported changing the filibuster threshold by CNN and said she is still opposed to the idea. “Not at this time,” Feinstein said.

Sen. Maize Hirono, D-Hawaii, meanwhile said last week she is already for getting rid of the current 60-vote threshold and thinks other Democrats will sign on soon.

“If Mitch McConnell continues to be totally an obstructionist, and he wants to use the 60 votes to stymie everything that President Biden wants to do and that we Democrats want to do that will actually help people,” Hirono said, “then I think the recognition will be among the Democrats that we’re gonna need to.”

The most recent talk about either removing or significantly weakening the filibuster was spurred by comments from Manchin that appeared to indicate he would be open to a talking filibuster. He said filibustering a bill should be more “painful” for a minority.

Manchin appeared to walk back any talk of a talking filibuster on Wednesday, however.

“You know where my position is,” he said. “There’s no little bit of this and a little bit — there’s no little bit here. You either protect the Senate, you protect the institution and you protect democracy or you don’t.”

Manchin and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., both committed to supporting the current form of the filibuster earlier this year. Sinema was not in the Senate in 2017.

Senate Minority Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said their comments gave him the reassurance he needed to drop a demand that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., put filibuster protections into the Senate’s organizing resolution.

But with Manchin seeming to flake at least in the eyes of some, other Democrats are beginning to push harder for filibuster changes.

I read this about your views on abortion:

Claimed to support post-viability exceptions, but voted no

BROKEN PROMISE: : While running for Senate, an opposition ad claimed that Booker condoned abortion at any stage of pregnancy and without restrictions. Booker’s campaign responded that Booker does support restrictions: “Mayor Booker does not oppose restrictions on post-viability abortions if exceptions are made for the health and the life of the mother.” Booker attempted to appear more moderate on abortion by parsing meaningless differences in policy: we call that “legalism.”

ANALYSIS: Booker was pressed for specifics during the campaign and said he accepted “post-viability exceptions.” But then he co-sponsored a bill that banned post-viability exceptions. Booker might say, “Well, SOME post-viability exceptions are ok, but not THOSE post-viability exceptions.” But THOSE post-viability exceptions are the currently controversial ones, which come up on pro-life bills for votes in the Senate.

Senator, I wanted to talk to you about why I am pro-life.

Carl Sagan stated, “So if a sperm and egg are as human as the fertilized egg produced by their union, and if it is murder to destroy a fertilized egg–despite the fact that it’s only potentially a baby–why isn’t it murder to destroy a sperm or an egg?”

Newsweek answered the question life begins long ago (see below).

Carl Sagan was the Humanist of the year in 1981. 

A Christian Manifesto
by Dr. Francis A. Schaeffer

This address was delivered by the late Dr. Schaeffer in 1982 at the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It is based on one of his books, which bears the same title.

Dr. C. Everett Koop, in our seminars for Whatever Happened to the Human Race, often said that (speaking for himself), “When I graduated from medical school, the idea was ‘how can I save this life?’ But for a great number of the medical students now, it’s not, ‘How can I save this life?’, but ‘Should I save this life?’”

Believe me, it’s everywhere. It isn’t just abortion. It’s infanticide. It’s allowing the babies to starve to death after they are born. If they do not come up to some doctor’s concept of a quality of life worth living. I’ll just say in passing — and never forget it – it takes about 15 days, often, for these babies to starve to death. And I’d say something else that we haven’t stressed enough. In abortion itself, there is no abortion method that is not painful to the child — just as painful that month before birth as the baby you see a month after birth in one of these cribs down here that I passed — just as painful…

The January 11 Newsweek has an article about the baby in the womb. The first 5 or 6 pages are marvelous. If you haven’t seen it, you should see if you can get that issue. It’s January 11 and about the first 5 or 6 pages show conclusively what every biologist has known all along, and that is that human life begins at conception. There is no other time for human life to begin, except at conception. Monkey life begins at conception. Donkey life begins at conception. And human life begins at conception. Biologically, there is no discussion — never should have been — from a scientific viewpoint. I am not speaking of religion now. And this 5 or 6 pages very carefully goes into the fact that human life begins at conception. But you flip the page and there is this big black headline, “But is it a person?” And I’ll read the last sentence, “The problem is not determining when actual human life begins, but when the value of that life begins to out weigh other considerations, such as the health or even the happiness of the mother.”

We are not just talking about the health of the mother (it’s a propaganda line), or even the happiness of the mother. Listen! Spell that out! It means that the mother, FOR HER OWN HENDONISTIC HAPPINESS — selfish happiness — can take human life by her choice, by law. Do you understand what I have said? By law, on the basis of her individual choice of what makes her happy. She can take what has been declared to be, in the first five pages [of the article], without any question, human life. In other words, they acknowledge that human life is there, but it is an open question as to whether it is not right to kill that human life if it makes the mother happy.

And basically that is no different than Stalin, Mao, or Hitler, killing who they killed for what they conceived to be the good of society. There is absolutely no line between the two statements — no absolute line, whatsoever. One follows along: Once that it is acknowledged that it is human life that is involved (and as I said, this issue of Newsweek shows conclusively that it is) the acceptance of death of human life in babies born or unborn, opens the door to the arbitrary taking of any human life. From then on, it’s purely arbitrary.

 I understand many humanists support financially NARAL. Did you know that the founder of NARAL left the abortion business because as technology advanced he discovered that the unborn baby experienced pain?  Here is a little more about Dr. Bernard Nathanson:

Bernard Nathanson: A Life Transformed by Truth

by  Robert P. George

In 1985, Nathanson employed the new fetal imaging technology to produce a documentary film, “The Silent Scream,” which energized the pro-life movement and threw the pro-choice side onto the defensive by showing in graphic detail the killing of a twelve-week-old fetus in a suction abortion. Nathanson used the footage to describe the facts of fetal development and to make the case for the humanity and dignity of the child in the womb. At one point, viewers see the child draw back from the surgical instrument and open his mouth: “This,” Nathanson says in the narration, “is the silent scream of a child threatened imminently with extinction.”

Publicity for “The Silent Scream” was provided by no less a figure than President Ronald Reagan, who showed the film in the White House and touted it in speeches. Like Nathanson, Reagan, who had signed one of the first abortion-legalization bills when he was Governor of California, was a zealous convert to the pro-life cause. During his term as president, Reagan wrote and published a powerful pro-life book entitled Abortion and the Conscience of the Nation—a book that Nathanson praised for telling the truth about the life of the child in the womb and the injustice of abortion.

My last question to you today is WHAT ABOUT UNBORN WOMAN’S RIGHTS? Don’t little baby girls who are just months away from being born have the right to life? This letter has been about politics but the spiritual answers your heart is seeking can be  found in putting your faith and trust in Jesus Christ. The Bible is true from cover to cover and can be trusted.  Without the Bible then we are left with Schaeffer’s final conclusion,“If there are no absolutes by which to judge society, then society is absolute.”

Sincerely,
