Roe v Wade Movie Gets an Addition to the Cast: Stacey Dash
Fr. Mark Hodges : Feb 6, 2018
"It's important that the American public see the deceptive machinations and out-and-out lies that the Supreme Court's Roe decision is based on. The riveting, real-life drama will be a revelation to those who've only heard pro-abortion rhetoric." -Priests for Life president Fr. Frank Pavone
The cast includes "Born on the Fourth of July" and "The Usual Suspects" actor Stephen Baldwin, who is also an executive producer, and Academy Award winner Jon Voight ("Midnight Cowboy," "Deliverance," "Coming Home," "Mission Impossible," "The Rainmaker"). Filmmaker Nick Loeb ("The Smokers") is one of the executive producers as well.
The story reveals "the most corrupt court case in history," the film's website states. Scriptwriters aim to tell "the real untold story of how people lied; how the media lied; and how the courts were manipulated to pass a law that has since killed over 60 million Americans."
Dr. Alveda King, who works with Priests for Life, is promoting the project. "Roe v Wade is a powerful film regarding a time in America's history that must be accurately portrayed," she told LifeSiteNews.
"My Uncle, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., once said, 'Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.' Abortion is a civil injustice, rending the very fabric of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. ... I am pleased to join Nick and the all-star cast in making this message available to those who need it most: the American people."
Characters in the film include Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, Norma McCorvey ("Jane Roe"), abortionist Dr. Bernard Nathanson, feminist Betty Friedan, and pro-life physician Mildred Jefferson, who will be played by Dash.
Priests for Life president Father Frank Pavone had a "very good meeting" with Loeb about the project and took the time to share his enthusiasm with LifeSiteNews.
"Roe v Wade the Movie is very true to life, showing the real story behind the legalization of abortion," Pavone said. "I knew Norma McCorvey and Dr. Bernard Nathanson and others involved personally. I saw firsthand what they experienced and suffered to ultimately tell the truth, so the film has a very personal meaning for me and all of us at Priests for Life.
