A Christian worker, his family and a nurse friend investigate throughout North America to uncover the truth about the birth control pill. The debate has been raging for over a decade and yet many people don't know about it. How could this be? How does the pill really work? Can everyday oral contraceptives really cause abortions? Why are so many people uninformed?
Discover how this could be a deadly silence. Find out what has shocked doctors and nurses.
Whether Christian or not, women across the board do not have a real understanding of how the pill actually works. Does it only prevent ovulation? What do the inserts and pharmaceutical guides really say? How is it that women consume something when they know very little about how it actually works? Do women and men really care?
The producers believe they should be given the opportunity to make an informed choice. No matter what one's conclusions are, they believe everyone has a right to full information and informed consent. Whether on the left or the right, we should all agree, informed consent in the medical community is paramount.
This is a good start to the investigative work of how informed we really are, what we take for granted, who might know and may not want to tell.
The question is why? Why the silence? The topic that for many has been too hot to handle.
The documentary features: Dr. Albert Mohler (quoted in Time Magazine's recent article on The Pill), The Duggars (19 children and counting), Christian author Randy Alcorn (i.e. Heaven, Does the Birth Control Pill Cause Abortions?) and Dr. Walt Larimore (formerly with Focus on the Family).
