Academy Award winning actor Jon Voight in “Roe v. Wade” (2019)

A new film starring Jon Voight (Midnight Cowboy, Runaway Train, Heat), Nick Loeb (Precious Cargo), John Schneider (The Dukes of Hazzard, The Haves and Have Nots) and Stacy Dash (Clueless), tells the true story of how Norma McCorvey, commonly known as Jane Roe, was persuaded by lies and manipulation to sue the government for the right to have an abortion.

The script, co-written by Director and Actor Nick Loeb, was developed from actual court records in order to share the truth behind the case that has allowed the killing of more than 60 million American children.

Director Loeb told The Washington Post,

“I wanted to tackle this in a way where all sides of the story will be told, and the facts were laid out, and people can then make up their mind and decide on their own. I just think everybody should be armed with the facts, unlike when I was growing up.”

The film also features many other fine and well recognized actors, including Corbin Bernsen (as Justice Blackmun), William Forsythe (as Justice Stewart), Steve Guttenberg (as Justice Powell), Joey Lawrence, Stacey Dash, Robert Davi (as Justice Brennan), Mindy Robinson, Jamie Kennedy (as Larry Lader), Tom Guiry, and Wade Williams (as Justice Rehnquist).

Producers for the film include Alveda King (niece of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and daughter of civil rights activist Rev. A. D. King), Adi Cohen, Nick Loeb, and others.

ROE V. WADE centers around the famous abortionist Dr. Bernard Nathanson and Dr. Mildred Jefferson, the first African-American doctor to graduate from Harvard Medical School, as they square off in a national battle in this untold conspiracy that led to the most famous and controversial court case in history.

Nathanson conspires with NARAL founder Larry Lader and feminist Betty Friedan in the fight to legalize abortion on demand. Looking for a pawn to enact their plan, they discover Norma McCorvey, a broke, pregnant and uneducated girl, and persuade her to sue Dallas County for the right to an abortion.

length: 2 minutes

Lader is inspired by the work of Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger, who sought to reduce the growth of African-American populations in America. Together, he, Nathanson, and Friedan work tirelessly to inundate the public with pro-abortion ideas and fabricated false statistics to build support for their case and sway public sentiment, moving the idea of abortion from murder of the defenseless to an expression of a woman’s right.

In the meantime, Jefferson, an educated, African-American pro-life scholar and doctor, steps up, determined to save lives and her race with the help of Father James McHugh and Law Professor Robert Byrn.

ROE V. WADE tells the untold journey of the deceit and cruelty that created the most famous court case in all of history and the relentless fight to save America’s future generations.

Co-Producer Alveda King revealed,

“This 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. So much was twisted and turned around to pass Roe V. Wade. A lot of information has been misconstrued, and it has to come out.”

One of the sources for financing this film is crowdfunding through GoFundMe.

The filmmakers are hoping to release ROE V. WADE theatrically nationwide in Fall 2019. Audiences will get the first sneak peek of the film during an exclusive March 27, 2019 showing at the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Convention in Anaheim, California.

Director Loeb says,

“Our movie will not only shed a light on the truth, but it will also change hearts and minds.”
