Jon Voight Fiercely Defends His ‘Roe V. Wade’ Film

In an interview with the Daily Mail, the 80-year-old icon (who looks staggeringly great for his age) went to bat for the film, against its aligned and awaiting pro-choice critics:

“There is so much stuff that has been said about Roe vs. Wade, this decision of the Supreme Court in the 70s. Really, people are talking about it and getting excited and upset, but they know nothing about it. Thank God somebody said, ‘Let’s make a movie about it and show all the aspects.’ The script was loaded with information that I never heard before. It is going to be exciting for people to see.”

How pro-life is it? Here’s a blurb from The Guardian:

With dialogue such as: “We have been in our second civil war for over 50 years now”, “Doctors must protect life … from the point of conception”, and “This is a conspiracy”, Roe v Wade’s trailer leaves no doubt what its intentions are; it also features news items about Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the supreme court followed by the line, “It will flip the decision.”

The film’s writer, Nick Loeb, recently addressed the (thus far) 150+ negative reviews of the film:

“A lot of people do not want to hear the truth, they do not want to know the real story, people are afraid of it and twisted.”

As far as roles he still wants to play, Voight asserted, “I am looking for stories, and if I think there is some truth to something, a good story and a part for me, I will be tempted to go that way. That is what I base it on. I do not have any prejudgments. When I see the piece I know if it resonates with me.”

The Daily Wire reported, “Facebook has reportedly refused to authorize ads promoting the movie because the social media network considers the film a political ad. The film’s producers wanted to buy advertising on Facebook but the firm said the ad did not align with its new ‘issues of national importance’ guidelines, according to Breitbart.”
