Unborn in the USA: Inside the War on Abortion

A documentary film by Stephen Fell & Will Thompson

Friday 2 November 2007

An unprecedented view of the deep secrets and deep pockets of the pro-life movement, UNBORN IN THE USA: INSIDE THE WAR ON ABORTION weaves a riveting story from more than 70 exclusive interviews with pro-life activists and seldom-seen archival footage. This provocative film documents one of the most controversial social movements in American history.

When the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade affirmed a woman’s constitutional right to privacy, a new movement—dedicated to criminalizing abortion—was born. Now, more than 30 years later, with President George W. Bush’s conservative appointments to the Supreme Court, Roe v. Wade teeters on the brink of reversal. The film asks and answers the question “in the struggle for dominance over a woman’s right to privacy, who wins?”

Filmmakers Stephen Fell and Will Thompson gained unprecedented access to pro-life groups, movement icons, fundraising machines, and even university students being specially groomed to carry the pro-life message for college credit. Fell and Thompson traveled across 35 states in a single year to film this riveting story.
