It seems that whenever people try to share the truth, others do everything in their power to prevent the truth from being shared.
Page Six reports Nick Loeb’s upcoming film, “Roe v. Wade: The Movie,” has been blocked from filming at several iconic New York City landmarks, including the Plaza and the Statue of Liberty this month.
Loeb, an actor-turned-director, and his film did receive special permission and permits to film at St. Patrick Cathedral in the city.
“We are honored to be the only film ever allowed to shoot in St Patrick’s Cathedral. Despite all the media reports, we finished shooting the film, on time and on budget,” Loeb told LifeNews.
When the crew attempted to receive permits from the Plaza they were denied, with a Plaza spokesperson stating, “The filming did not move forward due to budget restrictions and potential operational impact to the guest experience,” according to the report.
Even though they have faced many obstacles, Loeb and the film continue to move forward. Several distinguished actors and leaders in the pro-life movement, such as Jon Voight, Stacey Dash and Alveda King, are taking part in the movie.
When asked about the film, Loeb told LifeNews: “The actors and crew have been top notch with tremendous experience. I am so proud of how hard they are all working despite all the obstacles.”
This is not the first hurdle Loeb and his crew have had to overcome in the making of the film. Several actors and crew members who had signed on to the film quit after learning more about the story. When they began to crowdfund on Facebook, Loeb said the social media giant began suppressing their paid ads and content, blocking users from sharing the movie’s posts.
Loeb and co-producer Cathy Allyn’s film, “Roe v. Wade,” discusses the truth behind the landmark ruling that allowed abortion on demand in the United States.

“…No one has really told the whole truth about Roe v. Wade in a film,” Loeb said, previously. “When I delved into this, I discovered conspiracy theories, fake news, made-up statistics and a whole lot of people involved who switched their positions from pro-choice to pro-life, including Norma [McCorvey].”
One of the more surprising details regarding Roe v. Wade is that Norma McCorvey, who was Jane Roe herself, became a pro-life advocate. She said she had been manipulated by her lawyers into turning her situation into a case that overturned laws protecting the lives of unborn children. Loeb’s film highlights the lesser-known facts behind the case that has impacted the United States, sharing information that has been carefully withheld by Hollywood and the media.
The film producers’ mission to share the story stems from the push-back they have received from Hollywood.
“Hollywood only wants you to hear their version of the story – in fact, there are three movies currently in development that take a pro-abortion stance,” the film producers said. “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.”
