Doonby brings a Pro-life theme into pop culture

February 24, 2012. ( Norma McCorvey, better known as Jane Roe, from the 1973 Supreme Court Case Roe v. Wade is set to have a cameo in the 2012 film Doonby. The film is a thriller about a woman determined to terminate her pregnancy in the 1960s.

It's set in the small Texas town of Smithville, where a handsome drifter rolls into town on an inter-state bus.

The drifter, played by John Schneider, catches the eye of the local doctor´s daughter. His musical charm and knack for being in the right place at the right time evoke suspicions in the town, which eventually drives him out.

Peter Mackenzie, the writer and director of the film took 15 years to pen the script. He initially did not include McCorvey´s cameo role, but after meeting her lawyer who happened to live in the town in which the film was set, Mackenzie wrote her part in.

The film will be in released in select theaters around the U.S. February 24th.
