The Silent Scream
|Our Feature Presentation|
The Silent Scream is a pro-life propaganda video which allegedly depicts an actual abortion via ultrasound. Produced in 1984, it has been used to scare the bejesus out of generations of Christian children, and has even been snuck into public school classrooms by teachers who apparently don't care much for the concept of the separation of church and state.
In 1985, a panel of medical experts convened by Planned Parenthood declared that the video was "riddled with scientific, medical, and legal inaccuracies, misleading statements, and exaggerations". Of course, we can't really trust their opinion, can we?
