Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — For decades, scientific researcher Alfred Kinsey was synonymous with sex–the definitive source for data on Americans’ sexual habits.

While Kinsey became a household name in the 1940s and ‘50s, many younger Americans have never heard of him. However, Kinsey’s fame is expected to grow in November with the release of a film entitled "Kinsey."

One pro-life group has already issued its review of "Kinsey" — and it’s far from favorable.

Concerned Women for America says the movie, starring actor Liam Neeson, overlooks "the stunning fact that much of Kinsey’s work has been revealed as fraud."

According to CWA, a number of Hollywood’s leading actors, including Tom Hanks, Russell Crow, Harrison Ford, and Kevin Spacey opted out of starring in the controversial "Kinsey."

The organization notes that Kinsey’s work has served to advance not only promiscuity but abortion as well.

As a result, CWA has launched a special web page entitled "The Truth About Alfred Kinsey." The web page is designed to expose some of the myths surrounding Kinsey’s research. It includes a number of articles showing how Kinsey exploited children for sex in order to further the aims of leading pro-abortion groups.

"From abortion to homosexuality to pornography, Kinsey’s research has been cited as proof that ‘science’ has done away with societal restraints based on religious beliefs," CWA states. "Kinsey’s conclusions paved the way for condom-based sex education in public (and many private) schools and furthered the agenda of pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL)."

Kinsey is credited with sparking the sexual revolution with his books, "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male" (1948) and "Sexual Behavior in the Human Female" (1953). CWA says his work laid the foundation for acceptance of abortion.

CWA states, "The core of the Kinsey philosophy is anti-marriage, anti-woman, anti-family and anti-children."

In her book, "Kinsey: Crimes and Consequences," Dr. Judith Reisman argued that Kinsey denigrated motherhood.

"The Kinsey team allegedly recorded the sexual conduct of a total of 7,789 women in their sample, but the only births recorded were from single women…and children born from adulterous unions…Kinsey gave no data on normal marital birth, no data on normal mothers," Reisman wrote.

"Dr. Reisman’s study supports the conclusion that Alfred Kinsey’s research was contrived, ideologically driven and misleading," Dr. Charles Rice, professor emeritus of law, University of Notre Dame, has said.

"Any judge, legislator or other public official who gives credence to that research is guilty of malpractice and dereliction of duty," Rice added.

CWA notes that Kinsey’s research formed the basis for sexual education curriculums that de-emphasized abstinence in favor of sexual experimentation–experimentation that has led to millions of abortions.

Still, Kinsey’s work continues to be promoted by advocates of abortion. For instance, noted pro-abortion feminist Gloria Steinem has said that the Indiana zoologist’s research, while "far from perfect," was a "big step forward" for women.
