PARIS – Four prominent French pro-lifers are staging a hunger strike to protest the decision by the country’s television networks to ban the film The Silent Scream (Le Cri Silencieux), from prime time broadcast.

The film, a graphic, ultrasound depiction of an abortion in progress, is narrated by former abortionist turned pro-lifer, Dr. Bernard Nathason. It is effective for showing abortion’s brutality.
