In short, the constitutional right to abortion is found not in the Constitution itself, but in a loose reading of it. This constitutional argument is often used by pro-abortionists. As former U. The justices set about finding a means by which they could enact a far-reaching liberal agenda, and concluded that extending the right to privacy beyond its natural and legitimate dimensions would be the ideal means for accomplishing this objective. Of course, we do indeed possess an authentic right to privacy , founded in the Fourth Amendment, which protects us from, among other things, unreasonable searches and seizures.

Having just seen the movie in a private screening, I would say its R rating is downright laughable, which makes one think that it is simply an overtly political reaction. Pure Flix. Low-budget films don't have that kind of time luxury. The advertising and marketing budget is tight, and a lot of what the filmmakers are counting on is word of mouth, a faith-based audience buying out screens, and a pro-life movement angered over some of the most aggressive abortion laws being passed around the country.

Set to release March 29th, this Pure Flix film includes a hard-to-watch but much needed opening scene. This was one of the hardest, most grueling clips I have ever experienced in my life, and as a CSULA film graduate, I have watched a lot of films. I bawled for several minutes. My eyes were opened. I have always been pro-life.
