Abortion Documentary

This new film out by British filmmaker Tony Kaye called Lake of Fire promises to be controversial. From this article it appear there will be footage of actual abortion procedures, something most pro-abortion folks don't like to view or point out during discussions.
According to Mr. Kaye, he is attempting to tell both sides of the abortion issue in this film. While I don't agree with some of his comments in this article or of his 'confused' stand on the subject, I do applaud his efforts to bring this to the screen.
I am baffled why there hasn't been a more concerted effort to try and keep this documentary from showing... or maybe there is and I'm just not aware of it. Maybe it's it's limited shows (it won't be shown in many theaters) that will keep it from bringing this issue to the forefront, especially during election time. Imagine if this film is view by many and then... hey lets question the candidates on their stand on abortion.
A key figure in the film is Norma McCorvey, better known as Jane Roe, the lead plaintiff in the landmark Roe vs Wade case that legalized abortion in the United States in 1973 and continues to shape the political landscape.

McCorvey was the poster child of the pro-choice camp until she turned pro-life and explains in the film how anti-abortion campaigners told her that "I was the one that was responsible for all the dead babies."
I think we'll be hearing more on this in the news... I hope.
