The long-awaited “Roe v. Wade” film, which tells the backstory behind the infamous U.S. Supreme Court abortion ruling, is coming out in April.
On Friday, the film will premiere at CPAC in Orlando, Florida with producer Nick Loeb and Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight, The Federalist reports. In April, it will be available online through Amazon Prime and iTunes.
“Because the movie aligns with the conservative message, I reached out to CPAC to see if they would have any interest in holding it during the event because it’s in Florida and they’ve got a giant space that will accommodate social distancing,” Loeb told The Hollywood Reporter. “The actual event space that will show the movie can hold 1,500 people with social distancing. That’s huge, so I couldn’t turn that down.”
The movie tells the true story of the lies and manipulations used to push abortion on America. It is a project of Loeb and Cathy Allyn. Along with Voight, it also stars Robert Davi, Joey Lawrence, Lucy Davenport, Corbin Berensen, Stacey Dash and Greer Grammer. Alveda King, a pro-life leader and the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., also is an executive producer and has a cameo in the film.
Loeb said they just wanted to present the real story behind the
1973 ruling and help people understand the truth about
“The case gets thrown around all the time without a full understanding of how it came to be and what happened,” Loeb said. “I really want people to understand, whether they’re pro-choice or pro-life, that when a woman gets pregnant, there’s a baby there.”
