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.
