    “In an upcoming documentary featuring interviews with people like Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Alveda King, pro-life New England Patriots tight end Benjamin Watson says he will “unveil the truth about abortion.”

    Watson, who is an outspoken Christian and pro-life activist, told The Hollywood Reporter he is executive producing and partially financing a documentary called Divided Hearts of America which started filming last May and is now in the postproduction stage....”

    This is indeed great news! Thanks to the news reporter from The Christian Post for reporting this story. Dr. Alveda King and Dr. Ben Carson are great Americans. It is great that Watson is encouraging men to be responsible and care about their children from conception on.

    The growing strength and numbers of
    people in the pro science pro life movement has caused the pro abortion groups to become ever more rabid and extreme in their comments and public demonstrations on the issue. A civil dialogue on the issue as Watson suggests would be good.

    Abortion, like war, should always be avoided, if possible.
    Yet that's not always the case, is it? And we both know people who are so thoughtless and careless as to glorify war or treat abortion as the lazy man's birth control.
    But it's not someone else's business what a woman decides to do with her body or pregnancy and the law needs to keep out of it.
    If you really want to make a difference, start a movement that funds medical care and adoptions for all pregnant women who want an abortion. You might not get everyone, but you might convince millions of women to accept help at that difficult time in their lives and you would save millions of babies from abortions.
    That's what a good christian, jew or muslim would do. Witch hunts are for the deplorables.

    No one here wants a witch hunt. Deplorables though is a label we Trump supporters wear proudly as a badge of honor.

    Sounds very unbiased - NOT!!!

    I have found that about 75% of so called “pro-life posts are woefully ignorant the rest are made up of deliberate spin, goal shifting and outright lies

    Why? Do you think it fits?

    What you have NOT done is get over an off the cuff comment whilst celebrating and lauding a bully who relentlessly insults anyone who does not show him 100% loyalty

    There was another documentary on abortion that used people who actually know vs. a man who thinks the Pyramids in Egypt were built by the Biblical Joseph to store grain.

    Nobody is going to "reveal the truth" about a subject if they're approaching it from a predetermined and entirely one-sided conclusion. Documentaries like this should be produced by independent observers rather than activists. He's perfectly entitled to produce a documentary on the topic but he and everyone else should be entirely clear that it will be presenting one side of the issue (and there are more than two of them at that).

    the issue isn't the woman, the issue is the child who in a leftist world, is given no rights, no consideration.

    That's already happening in many parts of the country, the downside is some of the groups who provide such services demand the mother become a hard core bible thumper which turns off some people.

    While there is nothing illegal or immoral with doing such, I believe they would be better off providing the core service and mention they also provide religious services should the mother be interested in such.

    IMO, this is what this election is all about. Who controls the appointment of judges and picks the next Supreme Court judge. If I was a one issue voter this would be my top priority. Am I pro-life or am I pro-death? Am I for giving a person the right to play God and let them choose to keep or abort their child or am I for the right of the fetus who has no power to have a right to life?

    Why? Abortion is either the taking of a human life or it is not. If it is not, why should it be avoided?

    It isn't her body, often having a different gender and bloody type. Like slaves in our past, the unborn are considered less than human by some and therefore expendable.

    Pro-life groups are standing by ready and willing to take EVERY child saved from abortion.

    When people on the left hurl insults at us, instead of responding in anger we adopt it and proudly wear the insult as a badge of honor. This we are proudly irredeemable deplorables bitterly clinging to our religion and our guns. And we make no apologies for supporting Trump for re election in 2020.

    Absolutely nothing. Just a derailment attempt against the topic of the seed

    By "truth" you mean that women who have had abortions because of medical necessity, or who were raped, won't be interviewed because that would interfere with the anti-choice narrative.

    The old adage that a pregnant woman eats for two is still true.

    And? He’s a cabinet member of the Trump administration and retired as the worlds best brain surgeon. He’s operated on babies while they were still in their mother’s womb so he knows that a pre born baby is a human being.
