This is not a movie you’ll want to see, given that it’s being made by Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage. Not that there’s much worry, it seems people don’t have a great deal of enthusiasm for helping to make this project a reality. At least not the “part with cold, hard cash” enthusiasm.
One of the most horrific tragedies to befall our nation was the U.S. Supreme Court’s infamous decision imposing abortion on the nation in the Roe v. Wade case. Some 60 million unborn children have died as a result of that monstrous decision.
What many people do not know is that the Roe decision is based on a pack of lies, manipulations and outright misrepresentations. Now we have an opportunity to bring the truth behind the Roe v. Wade decision to the attention of the American people with a full-length feature film starring Jon Voight, Stephen Baldwin and Stacey Dash — Roe v. Wade, the Movie.
Imposed? No, Roe was not imposed on anyone, it was simply allowed, legally. Fuck, I hate the way these fanatics twist language, making it sound as if legal terminations were somehow made mandatory. One thing is certain, their little “movie” will be a pack of lies, manipulations, and outright misrepresentations.
You can watch the trailer at the Indiegogo page, if you have the stomach for it. Right now, I don’t. It’s interesting, looking down the very long page of ‘perks’, which go up to $500,000. For that phenomenal sum, you get a speaking, lead role in the film, and you don’t have to pony up for your own transportation cost! Amazing no one has grabbed that one yet. As of today, they have $105,205 out of a two million request, with 22 days left. Uh oh. The quote is from the nom blog, begging people for money.

Ack! I clicked through to the nom page!
“No, Roe was not imposed on anyone, it was simply allowed, legally.”
Incorrect. Roe was indeed imposed on the various states that had laws on their books making abortion illegal. What is so hard to understand about this simple historical reality?
No, I am not wrong. Many laws have been changed over the centuries, and states have had to change those laws. Most of these were not regarded as an “imposition”. Generally speaking, historically, those who did make a fuss about imposition were always on the wrong side, such as can be seen in any civil rights decision. Bigots, corrupt assholes, and fanatical christians are always the ones who scream their heads off over the horrors of any law which treats people like human beings. And the ability to have a legal termination is NOT imposed on anyone, it’s a personal medical choice. As far as legality, asshole -- abortion was not legal in any state, it was illegal across the board. You had to leave the country to obtain a legal abortion.

“Imposed” would mean that every pregnant person would be required to get an abortion.

OK, couldn’t resist watching the trailer. Thoughts:
1. If the trailer is anything to go by, this will be a rather dull movie.
2. They’re claiming that Norma McCorvey was recruited by Bernard Nathanson and Betty Friedan who’d teamed up to search America for someone who was willing to be the test case? WTF?? Is this something I’ve never heard of or are they talking bollocks?
It’s a bunch of manufactured bullshit.
Yeah, like emancipation was “imposed” on all those states that didn’t want it.
