Movie Silent Scream: Totally Absurd Medically
Facts Not Important - Lies Scare Women


It seems that if Biblical facts don't support the anti-choice zealots, they next try emotional lies with such propaganda as the movie Silent Scream, more like the silent scam! Yet it does what it is suppose to. Get people all emotional but based on lies and gimmicks to deceive people.

Many that have seen the movie without the fast forward frames, Nathanson's voice overs and his use of dolls, see the "show" very differently. There is a documentary by Patricia Jaworski called "Thinking About The Silent Scream". Dr Bennet, Chair, Neuroscience Dept, Albert Einstein Medical School; Dr Goldman-Rakic, Prof of Neuroscience at Yale; Dr Purpura, Neurologist and Neuroscientist, Dean of Stanford University Medical School; Dr Grobstein, development biologist, head of the Stanford U Bio Dept all discarded any notion of fetal pain.

A X-ray tech and son of a prominent radiologist says: "I dispute the "scream" notion of either a Doppler or real-time ultrasound. What you see is a xeroradiographic film of acoustical echoes as they bounce around and envelope certain tissues. The waves you label a "scream" are acoustical shadows of amniotic fluid displaced by pressure or puncture of the sac. These waves tend to radiate in a counter-clockwise cyclonic manner, much like water flowing down a drain"

The cerebro cortex doesn't start to function until about the same time as the outer edge of viability - 20 to 22 weeks, long after most abortions are done. While I do support restrictions on later abortions there is absolutely no medical support of any fetal reactions or even personhood in the first trimester when 90% of all abortions are performed.

To claim otherwise is a bold face lie to promote the emotionally charged immature ideas of the anti-women, anti-choice movement. Let me also be clear that in a perfect world abortion would not be needed. I believe abortion is the least favorable choices over not becoming pregnant or adoption. However, it clearly should be the women's choice at least in the first trimester.

If a person feels that an abortion is their most reasonable choice and feels spiritually at ease over their decision, who are you to contradict them? The choice is between them and their God - not between them, God, and you.
