The Silent Scream is a 1984 anti-abortion film directed by Jack Duane Dabner and narrated by Bernard Nathanson, a Jewish obstetrician, NARAL Pro-Choice America founder, and an abortion provider before becoming an anti-abortion activist, and produced in partnership with the National Right to Life Committee.
The film depicts the abortion process via ultrasound and shows an abortion taking place in the uterus.
During the abortion process, the fetus is described as appearing to make outcries of pain and discomfort. The video has been a popular tool used by the anti-abortion campaign in arguing against abortion.Nathanson credits then-president Ronald Reagan for inspiring him to make The Silent Scream. In a speech to the Association of National Religious Broadcasters in January 1984, Reagan stated that a fetus suffers "long and agonizing pain" during an abortion.
