We saw this one coming.
The backlash surrounding Nick Loeb's anti-abortion motion picture has been swift, with various cast and crew dropping out the project. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the ill-fated movie appears on the brink of extinction with a last-ditch attempt to secure $1 million for its completion. Roe v. Wade, which stars a slew of conservative Hollywood stars such as Jon Voight, Robert Davi and Stacey Dash, was initially a project shrouded in secrecy but made press after a reveal amid controversy surrounding Donald Trump's Supreme Court pick.
There have been valid fears that Trump's Supreme Court pick could result in the overturning of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that guaranteed a woman's right to an abortion.
One potential investor, who wanted to remain anonymous, declined to invest in the project due to its overt political nature, as well as its tilt toward fake news that borders on propaganda. "The film reinforces lies that have been told over and over like Margaret Sanger started Planned Parenthood to kill African-American babies,” said the investor. “All the weird fake news about abortion is in there. All stuff that is easily debunked."
