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 people, including children.

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".[1]
