4 Movies That Depict the Painful Reality of Abortion

By Movieguide® Staff

The Supreme Court declined to hear a case that would have prevented a pro-life Texas law from going into effect. As of Sept. 1, 2021, Texas is now home of one of the strictest anti-abortion laws in the country, much to the celebration of pro-life people around the country.

The law says that if a heartbeat of a child can be detected, then it cannot be aborted. A heartbeat can often be detected as early as six weeks in-utero.

Though the law was passed in May, several challenges pushed it to the Supreme Court, which did not act on it before the deadline.

Hollywood often glamorizes abortion, but the harsh reality is that abortion is an emotionally and physically painful process that causes trauma for years to come. Thankfully, there are pro-life movies that depict the truth about abortion — and about God’s unfailing redemption and love.
