Kevin, Sam Sorbo Expose How Media Influences Culture – And What You Can Do About It
By Movieguide® Staff
Actors Kevin and Sam Sorbo noted the media’s power in culture to make lasting change for better or worse. Although the duo pointed to the decision to get abortion legalized nationwide in 1973 as a negative example, they encouraged Christians to use media to change the culture for the better.
While at the ROE V. WADE movie premiere at the Conservative Political Action Conference earlier this year, the Sorbos discussed abortion, big tech, and the media’s role in all of it.
“I’m a pro-life person, just as my wife is. I’ve done a lot of pro-life speaking through the years as well. I’m here to support a movie that I wish I could have been in. I love what they did,” Kevin told The Christian Post. “What’s amazing to me and sad to me is that so many people think it’s OK to murder unborn babies. They are babies, they are life; there’s a heartbeat at 22 days. We’re at the point now where some of these governors are even talking about killing babies the minute they’re born. I find it so horrific and evil what’s happening in America.”
ROE V. WADE outlines the events leading up to the landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in America from Dr. Nathanson’s unique perspective.
A portion of Movieguide®’s review of ROE V. WADE reads:
ROE V. WADE offers an ultimately powerful perspective on the 1973 court case by viewing it from Dr. Nathanson’s viewpoint, including how he went from being pro-abortion to being a pro-life Christian activist. ROE V. WADE seeks to present historical facts and ask important questions about morality, the role of racism in the case, and Christian faith. It’s not a faith-based movie, but it stresses themes of protecting the unborn, honesty, redemption, and justice. Due to the realistic depiction of abortion in the 1970s, MOVIEGUIDE® advises extreme caution for ROE V. WADE, especially for younger viewers.
The movie is set to release in theaters on Apr. 2.
“You can’t be against slavery and for choice,” Sam told The Christian Post at the premiere. “Media tells the story, and stories are compelling and they’re convicting. But they’re also very convincing.
“You’ll see in the movie, the media played the pivotal role in this whole saga, telling a lie, a story about a young woman that was an outright lie,” she continued. “Then perpetuating this myth that it’s not a human being, that it’s a clump of cells, that the young woman will never have to think about it again. All of these other stories that they tell, and none of which are true. I think it’s incumbent upon new media to retell the story with truth and with facts.”
