On his Friday Fox News show, Tucker Carlson interviewed Nick Loeb, co-producer of Roe v. Wade, a dramatic film which plans to show viewers “what happened from 1966 through 1973” that led to the Supreme Court’s decision declaring existing laws against abortion unconstitutional.
Carlson’s interview concentrated primarily on obstacles Loeb has faced in funding the film — obstacles which have included overt and covert suppression of his efforts on Facebook. Loeb also revealed that the film will show America “how the media was manipulated” during that critical period.
Carlson noted that the left-dominated press and entertainment industry almost universally lionize Roe v. Wade “as a watermark in the advancement of the human race.” Given that reality, he told Loeb that he is “a legitimately brave man.”
Transcript (links added by me):
As Loeb noted, the orchestrated abortion-legalization movement campaign of deception is an historically established yet unfortunately little-known fact.
In the interview, Loeb referred to Dr. Bernard Nathanson, a co-founder of what is today called NARAL, who because passionately pro-life, reportedly after “he had the chance to observe a real-time abortion” less than a year after the Supreme Court’s decision.
Nathanson detailed the pro-abortion movement’s dishonest strategy during the period Loeb’s film will cover. Here are excerpts:
… THE FIRST KEY TACTIC WAS TO CAPTURE THE MEDIA
We persuaded the media that the cause of permissive abortion was a liberal enlightened, sophisticated one.
… We aroused enough sympathy to sell our program of permissive abortion by fabricating the number of illegal abortions done annually in the U.S. The actual figure was approaching 100,000 but the figure we gave to the media repeatedly was 1,000,000. Repeating the big lie often enough convinces the public. The number of women dying from illegal abortions was around 200-250 annually. The figure we constantly fed to the media was 10,000. These false figures took root in the consciousness of Americans convincing many that we needed to crack the abortion law.
… THE SECOND KEY TACTIC WAS TO PLAY THE CATHOLIC CARD
We systematically vilified the Catholic Church and its “socially backward ideas” and picked on the Catholic hierarchy as the villain in opposing abortion. This theme was played endlessly.
… THE THIRD KEY TACTIC WAS THE DENIGRATION AND SUPPRESSION OF ALL SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE THAT LIFE BEGINS AT CONCEPTION
… (I now know) It is clear that permissive abortion is purposeful destruction of what is undeniably human life. It is an impermissible act of deadly violence.
The outrageous myths about pre-Roe v. Wade abortions and deaths from abortions persist. Ardent feminists who have acknowledged the facts, e.g., Ellen Goodman, who admitted that by 1972, the number of women dying during abortions were only “at least 39” (!) in a 2004 column, shrug them off and say, “Facts, schmacts.”
These postures show why Loeb’s film needs to be made, and his efforts to get it made need support.
