Reversing Roe Reviews

    This tells the tale of what really happened to the Republican Party. This is truly not my father's party. Radical evangelical Christians and the anti-abortion movement have taken it over. They are becoming successful in turning their religious beliefs into law. These are very trying times for our democracy. I am no longer confident that it will survive. This is the Christian version of the Taliban operating right before you eyes pushing their religion onto this Republic.

    This is a real documentary with real information and statistics about what happens when you ban abortion, unlike "Unplanned" which looked more like a horror film than a real life case. You may end up hating prolifers when you watch it.

    Extremely biased "documentary" that attempts to demonize pro-life people. Pure propaganda. the only positive thing about the film is seeing how afraid the radical pro-abortion voices in the film are that they are going to lose the battle over abortion.

    The documentary never attempts to answer the question: "Is the entity in the womb a person?" Which needs ...... at least SOMETHING! Some hint at an answer at least. The filmmakers essentially give their opinion by avoiding the question. Other than that, a good history lesson as long as you know the agenda, have a thinking mind and aren't easily swayed. For a better look at an intellectual way to engage/ wade into prochoice/ prolife arguements, go to Equal Rights Institute or read /watch anything by Josh Brahm.

    The cognitive dissonance in this documentary is almost impressive. If you want a (somewhat) accurate history of abortion becoming legalized, and an extremely and very obviously biased portrayal of the current state of affairs, this is the movie for you. If you are pro-choice and want to reinforce your beliefs without an accurate representation of the other side of the debate, this movie is for you. If you are pro-life and want your head to explode, this is the movie for you.

    The film was well made but should not be used to inform your own opinion about this contentious issue. The major problem is that the film doesn't explore the depth and complexity of the Pro-Life side like they do for the Pro-Choice side. Instead they portray a wide variety of stock photos and video of fundamentalist Christians opposing abortion for religious and quasi-sexist reasons. On the other hand, the Pro-Life side is given ample time to explain their position without being derided by the documentarians and in fact are held up as paragons of virtue. If you want to learn about the arguments underpinning the Pro-Choice position this film will give you a good start, however, be cognizant that you will be getting a one-sided viewpoint. If you really want to be informed before you make your own decision about abortion you need to seek out a another source that will explain the rationale for the Pro-Life viewpoint because it is not respected or well-represented in this film. I hope Netflix will fund another documentary giving the Pro-Life side a chance to explain their position in this important and polarizing issue.

    Reversing Roe provided a solid history of this highly controversial issue. I appreciated the filmmakers balance in providing both side of the argument. This brings to light how the conservative religious movement tied itself to the GOP, in hopes of getting more conservative justices.

    Well made, but very obviously one-sided, and misses several questions and related news items that occurred concurrently during some of the events that they've shown that would have helped provide a more balanced view of said events.

    A fairly good look at the anti-choice movement, but I think it would be better had it touched upon the core issue: big government does not have the right to force the ruling parrty's 'morals' on pregnant women. Also, not enough emphasis, in my opinion, on the indisputable fact that every woman who decides to carry a pregnancy to term risks her very life and her health. Still, all in all, a decent view of the anti-choice loons running amok in America.
