Movie Recommendation: Roe v Wade

April 20, 2021

Dear Pastors,

Please consider promoting the Roe v. Wade movie in your weekly bulletins, websites, social media, etc.  Archbishop Naumann, Chairman of Prolife Activities for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has said:

“I encourage you to see this film. With some of the artistic liberties of the movie industry, the film provides insight into the cultural circumstances that resulted in the Court decision that led to more than 62 million American children killed by abortion over the past 48 years.” 

We agree. And so, the Office of Human Life, Family and Bioethics, has a special webpage through which the movie can be ordered at a special 35% discount through April 30 (and is available to watch, unlimited, for 30 days after ordering).

In a nutshell, the main reasons to see the movie:

  • It is likely in the near future that Roe v. Wade will be challenged in the courts and/or there will be federal legislation proposed to codify the ruling, so this is a good opportunity to learn about this landmark decision and initiate conversation about it.
  • It brings awareness to the strategy used to change the culture in 1970 which is similar to that being employed now to influence current day cultural issues (e.g. gender ideology).
  • It depicts the conversion of Bernard Nathanson and offers an example of the power of redemption, particularly relevant during the Easter Season.

In addition, on Thursday, May 27, 2021, at 7:00 p.m. we will be hosting a one-hour live Q&A session with the producer/director/actor, Nick Loeb, by Zoom which we hope will increase interest in seeing the movie, too.
