Movie Info

More than 30 years after Roe v. Wade affirmed a woman's constitutional right to have an abortion, President George W. Bush's conservative appointments to the Supreme Court threaten to overturn the decision and filmmakers Stephen Fell and Will Thompson set out to document what many consider to be the most controversial social movement in American history. Over the course of one year, Fell and Thompson were granted unprecedented access to pro-life groups, leaders in the movement, and fundraising

Here's a movie everyone can hate. Anti-abortionists will hate it because, without any editorializing, [it] show the activists for the self-righteous zealots they are. And pro-choicers will hate it because the people and their propaganda are so odious.

Whatever your views on abortion, you need to hear the subjects of this film, if only to be able to fight them more effectively.

t's almost impossible to make a fair-minded, non-exploitative documentary about the abortion debate, but Stephen Fell and Will Thompson take a credible shot with Unborn In The USA: Inside The War On Abortion.

The filmmakers suggest that this subject is innately unpleasant, and that if advocates on either side bring it into the open and provoke a visceral reaction from otherwise complacent foes, they've scored a small victory.

Whatever your personal feelings or political opinions on abortion, [directors] Fell and Thompson's film is likely to make you feel wretched. It's an uneven but fascinating survey of views and tactics in the contemporary pro-life movement.

Unborn doesn't really add or detract from the debate -- you wish the directors had asked a hard question or two.

Two college students hope to create the first unbiased doc on the issue. They refused funding from churches, etc utilizing sources for student projects instead. Well done.

This shot-on-video documentary masterfully gives a balanced picture, sans editorializing.

Unborn in the USA will not change your mind about abortion, but it will make pro-choicers think differently about people who actively work to stop it from happening.

Filmmakers Stephen Fell and Will Thompson examine one reason the pro-life movement might be gaining so much ground: Its no-holds-barred use of disturbing images of aborted fetuses.

Much like last year's Jesus Camp, Fell and Thompson let the Christian fanatics hold the floor.

A snapshot of a well-funded political underground that doesn't appear to be going away anytime soon.
