Introduced by Charlton Heston, Academy Award-winning actor and conscientious citizen who is well-known for taking an active role in community and film industry affairs. He urges the news media, which he charges with failing badly to inform the public on the abortion issue, to honestly consider and then address the information presented by the film ECLIPSE OF REASON in order to promote a better informed public.
Choice after all is meaningless unless the chooser has a grasp of all the facts.
This film was produced by Bernard Nathanson, one-time abortionist and leader of the nascent pro-choice movement, and documents the intra-uterine life of a little boy at 5 months of age as seen through a fetoscope – a camera placed inside the pregnant uterus. Riveting images of a late abortion are then shown with a camera both inside and outside the uterus. Consistently verifiable statistics emphasize that this horror, killing a child at this stage of development and beyond, takes place 400 times a day in the United States.
In addition, there are deeply moving interviews with the other victims of abortion: women who have been irreparably injured by abortion – both physically and emotionally.
