Two Hollywood actors are coming together with pro-life leaders to produce a film detailing the true story behind Roe v. Wade.
Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight and actor/producer Nick Loeb are involved in the making of “Roe v. Wade: The Movie,” along with Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and others.
“This is the untold story of how [abortion activists] lied and manipulated Jane Roe, the media, and the courts into the decision to allow abortion in 1973,” Loeb told LifeNews.
The film will follow key advocates in the abortion fight in the 1970s, including former abortionist Dr. Bernard Nathanson and Betty Friedan on the pro-abortion side and Dr. Mildred Jefferson, the first African American woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School, on the pro-life side.
“Bernard and Betty, along with the team at Planned Parenthood, search the country to find a pregnant girl they can use to sue the government for her right to have an abortion,” according to a description on the film website.
They find the “perfect pawn” in Norma McCorvey, the Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court decision that allowed abortion on demand in 1973. McCorvey later became pro-life and fought to overturn the infamous ruling that bears her name. She and others attested to her being mistreated and used by abortion activists to achieve their deadly agenda.
The film will examine the lies and manipulative tactics of abortion activists, people like McCorvey and Nathanson who later had a change of heart, and dedicated pro-life advocates like Jefferson who fought valiantly to defend the right to life for babies in the womb.
The film also will address the racism intertwined in the abortion industry through Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger and others, and Jefferson’s fight for unborn babies as well as people of color.

“This big screen movie is the real untold story of how mountains of lies led to an injustice that has deprived millions of people of human dignity and human rights,” King said in a promotional video for the film.
King is slated to play a cameo in the film and Voight a U.S. Supreme Court justice. The film will be feature-length.
