Having spent nearly two years on an investigative documentary film you learn more than your fair share about your main character. Our main character in the film happened to be an abortionist, someone we adamantly disagree with. But that didn't stop us from trying to understand the man and pray that his heart could be changed, and that only by the Grace of God.
We had heard many stories through the years, prior to working on the film, about the local abortionist in town, Ulrich "Georg" Klopfer. Most of the time we thought them only to be rumors and conspiracy theory, only to find out that most of what we were told was true.
So often, those of us who oppose abortion get frustrated that anyone would even think that killing an innocent life in the womb is acceptable. We're often left feeling defeated because the matter of life has become so politicized that we don't know what to do and often don't get involved. We first must change the belief that our efforts don't matter! Then we need to study our opponent or enemy.
"The opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself." - Sun Tzu
Understanding the enemy is exactly what we had to do in order to tell an objective story with Inwood Drive. As Mark points out in Chapter 5 of the companion book to the film, "Not being objective in filmmaking leads to propaganda."
We'd rather let a man like George Klopfer speak for himself so everyone can hear first hand the mind and deeds of an abortionist.
