The first trailer for the much-anticipated new film “Roe v. Wade” is out.
The movie, which will tell the true story of the lies and manipulations used to push abortion on America, is a project of actor/producer Nick Loeb and Cathy Allyn. It stars Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight, Joey Lawrence, Corbin Berensen, Stacey Dash and Greer Grammer. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., also is an executive producer and has a cameo in the film.
The 3-minute trailer will be shown during the March for Life on Jan. 18, but people also can watch it on YouTube.
“…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].”
The “Jane Roe” of Roe v. Wade, McCorvey later became pro-life. The film tells her story as well as other key players in the abortion battle of the 1960s and ’70s.
The film is slated to be released later this year.
Here’s more from the Hollywood Reporter:
The teaser opens with a scene featuring Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight, who plays U.S. Supreme Court Justice Warren Burger in the film, then cuts to modern-day news reports about Justice Brett Kavanaugh, including speculation that his appointment by President Donald Trump to the Supreme Court will “flip” the Roe v. Wade decision from the 1970s that basically legalized abortion.
Nick Loeb, who produced, co-wrote and co-directed Roe v. Wade, says the comparisons between what is being said now about Kavanaugh and was said when Roe v. Wade was re-argued in the early 1970s after a few President Richard Nixon appointees were on the court are strikingly familiar.
“Everyone is saying Kavanaugh is going to flip the decision and the same thing was said in 1972. There’s actually a lot of parallels between then and now,” Loeb told The Hollywood Reporter.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, given the pro-abortion political bent in Hollywood, the production team has faced more than its share of hostility, and some people have walked off the set. Last year, Loeb said Facebook also censored their efforts to spread the word about the film.

“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.”
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. 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.
