Highly recommend s

This topic is never easy to watch because so many do not value life of the unborn and we all know the end result is this.. but I do recommend the movie. It is well acted and dramatic depiction of this historical event.

The truth about the worst SCOTUS decision in the history of the US

This movie gives the facts, in dramatic fashion, about the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade. It is told from the perspective of Dr. Bernard Nathanson, who performed over 70,000 abortions before admitting that he was taking human lives, converting to Catholicism and becoming pro-life. Those who would say it's not factual can go to the movie website and see the fact-checking. Mildred Jefferson, the first black woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School is a great example of a role model for women and people of color. Roe v. Wade exposes the lies that were told to push the abortion agenda and the outside pressures that lead the justices to make the worst decision in the history of the court.
