Producers making virulent anti-abortion movie surprised that members of the crew keep quitting.

Soon they will be down to one camera, a plastic fetus, and Stacey Dash.

On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter published a strange piece about a secretive anti-abortion movie currently filming under a “fake title” in New Orleans.

The story, told primarily from the perspective of the film’s writer-director-producers Nick Loeb and Cathy Allyn, revealed that the title of the project is Roe v. Wade; that it chronicles “the 1973 Supreme Court decision that guaranteed a woman’s right to an abortion”; that it has a “pro-life tilt”; that the conservative pundit Stacey Dash will play Mildred Jefferson, a founder of the National Right to Life Committee; and that several other outspoken conservative actors are portraying Supreme Court justices, including Jon Voight and Robert Davi, along with Corbin Bernsen, John Schneider, Richard Portnow, Wade Williams, William Forsythe, and Steve Guttenberg. Filming reportedly began on June 15 and hopes to wrap by July 15.

THR’s piece also cast the filmmakers as victims, detailing their struggles to secure filming locations and keep ahold of cast and crew who objected to the “PG-rated” film’s “pro-life tilt”—a particularly hot-button issue in light of Justice Kennedy’s recently-announced retirement and the precarious state of Roe v. Wade.

What the THR piece failed to disclose is why the cast and crew of Roe v. Wade have been dropping like flies out of the project, as well as the project’s true nature—including several graphic scenes depicting aborted fetuses, according to several crew members who spoke to The Daily Beast on the condition of anonymity, fearing reprisals.

According to the Daily Beast, the production is using a fake name to hide their intent and when people working on the film discover exactly how misleading and disgusting it is they are leaving by droves.

The film is being represented as a mildly pro-life film but when folks get a look at the script they discover that is not true: 

“When I read the first two pages, I was like what the fuck is this?” one crew member told The Daily Beast.

The film’s director and first assistant director dropped out on the first day of shooting, forcing producing partners Loeb and Allyn, who co-wrote the screenplay, to assume directorial duties. A costumer, location manager, and several other crew members abandoned the project upon learning of its severe anti-abortion content.

“They’re not keeping people in the loop with the script,” one crew member said. “When people finally receive the script, they’ve dropped out really fast. After people started dropping out, they said, ‘OK, don’t send people the scripts anymore.’ Instead, they’ve been changing lines and scenes before they shoot.”

I assume the film will be ready just in time to prepare audiences for a challenge to Roe vs Wade to make its way to the Supreme Court where Trump’s newest Supreme Court pick will do exactly what he was selected to do. 

Why do I get the feeling that none of this is a coincidence?

    Just read a book on the First Ladies – did you know that Pat Nixon and Betty Ford were pro-choice? These working class women had backgrounds that allowed them to see first hand the horrors of forced gestation.

      i suspect that most women who grew up during the Depression had heard stories spoken quietly among their mothers and friends about terribly botched abortions and about women who were so poor that abortion seemed to be the only solution to their pregnancies. My mother was a devout Catholic all her life and she never said much about the abortion issue but I know that she and her sisters and friends were in sympathy with the pro-choice movement. It was an unspoken sympathy because such subjects were not for general conversation.

    tRump has his very own abortion story worth 1.6 million. He did not want another child to support. Yep dave dennison aka cadet bone spur did it again. Little Donnie cannot keep his short fingers nor his short Johnson in his pants. Now his huge man boobs are in a ringer and it will not stop truth from coming out.
    Roe vs Wade was in an era of rape, incest and deadbeat men. The men like to screw but did not like the outcome. A child. child support. Many deadbeat men are still hiding from their child support order.
    The tRump rapist and lousy men associated with him are not good choices for women to breed with. They are lousy fathers. People make mistakes and jump in bed with the wrong person. It is a lifetime sentence. Roe vs Wade was created and won in a court of law for many reasons. Taking away birth control and a right to choose is a attempt by nasty men to control women. These same men will deny and harm both mother and child out of hateful meanest.

    There is another movie coming out in August by the recent pardoned swamp slime Dinesh D’souza….it is called Death of a Nation. It is an attempted spin of history. A twisted attempt by this little creep to alter history. He attempts to sway history again. A boycott and protest may help break this disgusting little liar from profit.

      ‘Ladies and gentlemen, it’s back! Just when you thought The Innocence of Muslims was gone forever, the controversial 14-minute trailer on which then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (no less of a liar than her boss Obama)
      blamed Benghazi is back online for your viewing pleasure!’

    If Roe vs Wade is reversed it won’t end abortion; the only thing ended will be safe abortion. It’s all about controlling the lady bits. If “pro-lifers” lived their rhetoric there wouldn’t be any children waiting to be adopted and the foster care system would be obsolete.

    Fear mongering is all the pro lifers have – seems to me they are doing a bang up job.

      I still want to know what became of the Westboro Baptist Church. I guess now that they have their toad-in-charge and minions, they can save some money?

    It was my option, it was not my choice almost 34 years ago and I KNEW the shit was going to hit the fan in my family for their Christian values.
    The wayward baby girl who should have known better, pregnant at age 26. You have shamed us, well, guess what, they got over it.
    I will never disparage a woman for personal choice, it IS their body, THEIR life, and no one else’s.

    If this is the problem they’ve got, who do they think is going to distribute it? What theaters do they think are going to play this? This is going to be a straight to YouTube feature until YouTube shuts it down too. Aside from movie night at the Talibangelical Temples of Hate, this film isn’t going to get any play.
