Watch the documentary "The Silent Scream." Do you still support abortion after seeing it?

Asked by: Rafe
  • Because it's faked.

    It's propaganda and naturally biased due to documentary director being pro-life. The film was sped up, edited multiple times, faked, had misleading commentary over the top of it, and has in fact been disproven multiple times since its debut.

    I still support a woman's right to choose and I don't give any regard to what a documentary that, as I said, has been to proven to be misinforming and misleading multiple times. No matter what it says, a fetus is not sentient, it was a the stage where it had no idea what was happening. Things suspended in liquid tend to float around and away from things, and it has been said that the fetus was possibly yawning as opposed to screaming, but the fact it was sped up makes it seem otherwise.

    The Silent Scream is just a piece of Pro-life propoganda in that it tries to spread misinformation to restrict the rights of actual sentient people; plain and simple.

  • It's nasty but better than the alternative

    Abortion is a necessary evil. It allows women to be more than just chattel to pop out offspring, and helps to solve overpopulation. It is also inevitable, since if a government bans it, people will be driven into unsafe backstreet clinics run by 'doctors' with questionable medical credentials that are unregulated. Anti-Abortion activists present images of disfigured foeti endlessly to make people feel guilty about it, but any medical procedure has unpleasant an repulsive consequences. In the words of Doug Stanhope: 'It's your property, and if there is a squatter on that, then you have the right to evict them'. The film was largely sanctimonious shock for the sake of shock, and conveys the complete lack of empathy religions show towards women.

  • 'The silent scream' is ridiculous propaganda.

    'The silent scream' is rife with both inaccuracies, lies and faked or edited footage. The supposed 'mouth' in the film, to start, is the gap between the chin and chest of the fetus at that stage. There is no 'scream'. A fetus before about 26 weeks is also literally physically incapable of consciousness of any sort, let alone complex motor responses, supposedly in an attempt to 'avoid the surgical instruments'. The claim that a fetus of that age is capable of 'experiencing' *anything*, let alone pain, is a bald faced LIE. The footage is also edited and screwed with in other ways to make the process look as brutal as possible. For example, the footage is deliberately slowed for the first half, and then sped up a lot in order to make it look as though the fetus is 'thrashing' in 'terror' or 'agony'. In reality, it is making slow, calm movements not associated with external conditions in the slightest. The entire film is nothing more than pathetic propaganda.

  • That documentary is rife with inaccuracy.

    It's a hack piece designed to use an Argument from Emotion fallacy to lure in people who don't actually understand biology. It uses altered footage, in many cases from abortions outside the US which can be performed later than they can here. It often claims motor reflex is an "attempt to avoid the scalpel", when such fetuses do not have the neurological capability for CONSCIOUSNESS much less voluntary muscle movement.
    The ACTUAL facts are thus: a fetus of abortable gestation age in the United States cannot feel pain. It is not sentient. It has no consciousness.

    They actually showed this video in one of my classes in graduate school as an example of how scientifically inaccurate propaganda can fool the populace and why we need more sufficient science education.

  • Your standard pro-life scare tactic film

    This short film, is everything wrong with extreme pro-life propaganda. It puts forth standard scare tactics and misapplies scientific fact (and often enough mis-interprets if not outright lies about scientific fact) all in the name of "protecting the unborn"

    I could spend a lot of time talking about the medical inaccuracies, or the deliberate falsehoods or the misleading editing in this film, but it would probably be simpler to advise people who wish to watch this film to look it up themselves, it's not hard to find technical criticisms of this film in a quick google search.

    This is a film that likely is only popular with very poorly educated Pro-life extremists, as it is not factually accurate, nuanced, or even honest about the message it portrays

  • I have seen it a while ago

    Yeah, I still support abortion.... What no one seems to understand, is that people can get raped, especially underage, and pro life people say that the baby still has to be raised. You know, if you don't realize you were raped, you probably wouldn't even be prepared to have a baby, at all.

  • I Support Abortion!

    It doesn't matter if a fetus can feel anything. Bodily autonomy is paramount. Nothing - born or unborn - can use another's body without their permission. You can't use a corpse's organs without prior permission, why should a fetus use a uterus without permission? Women deserve more rights than corpses

  • I do not think anyone in their right mind can witness a real abortion and still support it.

    Watching an abortion, instead of just reading words written by people you will never met or even see, really opens your eyes. This man simply describes everything going on in an abortion in great detail, and shows how a baby develops in the uterus.
    I never knew exactly how abortions are done, but I actually saw one, and can't stop feeling sad. You see the "fetus" actually trying to defend himself from the vacuum.
    Did you know they have to actually squish the head before they can remove it?
    I can't get the image out of my mind.

  • Denial Doesn't Change Reality

    Labeling an unborn baby a fetus is a way of objectifying the living reality. The initialized life has a full complement of DNA at conception. By 21 days, the heart is beating. By 30, brain waves are discernible. By 41 days, the full skeleton is formed and the brain is controlling movement of muscles and organs. By 12 weeks, all limbs are formed, the baby is kicking, turning its feet, fanning the toes, making a fist, moving facial muscles into expressions and moving their mouth.

    But according to abortion supporters, they have no consciousness or feeling and incapable of any complex movements and cannot even feel pain.

    Yet within the first trimester all of the above and more happens as discerned by medical science. Abortion is a choice-less form of death applied to a living and developing human. If you choose to participate in it and play the denial game, you are participating in nothing more than self deception.

    Meanwhile, abortion is a very profitable business profiting from the death of unborn children terminating their lives for money. Planned Parenthood should not be given over $535 million of public money to profit from the murder of unborn babies. (Nearly $100 million of profit over expenses in 2016) Many taxpayers are unwillingly funding the killing of unborn babies which is yet another crime commonly known as theft or legalized plunder.

    Finally, the woman who undergo abortion are oftentimes themselves regretful and sometimes medically maimed. The toll on woman is far higher than acknowledged but never considered. The consideration of the aborting woman highlighted is convenience not physical, psychological and spiritual impact. A silent tragedy to accompany the silent scream.

  • Abortion is killing humans!!

    Abortion is killing a person without a voice. You never know what that one person could have done in this world! If you are not in a position to support a baby, than at least put it up for adoption! Many people are longing for a child, and because they might not be able to have one of their own, they are looking to adopt. And with the increasing rates of abortion, there are not as many children available to be adopted. Abortion also increases the rate of depression and suicide for mothers who opted against having their baby. So many abortions lead to two deaths instead of just one. To those who are considering an abortion! Please reconsider! Your child may be someone very influential in this world. They would be one more heart that beat with love, and one more voice to change the world!
