Documentary Review | Unborn in the USA: Inside the War on Abortion
Unborn in the USA is a documentary following the pro-life movement in the United States. It begins with the actions of Christian Institute as they set up displays on college campuses. It then expands with other groups protesting the current abortion laws. The film shows many interactions between pro-life and pro-choice groups, however, it shows no support of views from any pro-choice activists.
The film contains many interviews with people who have strong feelings on abortion, but very little facts on the issue. It primarily follows the actions of three groups which gives the overall documentary a repetitive feeling. It also contains graphic images of aborted fetuses which some viewers may not appreciate. I thought it did a great job showing the various sides of pro-life groups and the emotional and the subdued aspects, but it had very little else. It had some interesting aspects, but overall it could have shared the same amount of information in a much shorter time. Overall, I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
