Synopsis by Mark Deming
Anti-abortion extremists who encourage the harassment of clinic employees -- and in some cases violence and murder against the doctors -- go under the microscope in this documentary produced for the premium cable network HBO. Interview subjects include Neal Horsley, who created the outlawed Internet site "The Nuremberg Files," which posted the names and home addresses of doctors believed to perform abortions; Paul Hill, who is currently serving time in a Florida prison after killing employees of an abortion clinic in Pensacola; and Rob Lokey, a self-described leader of this movement. Directors Marc Levin and Daphne Pinkerson also interview a number of pro-choice activists, who explain their struggle to protect a woman's right to a safe and legal abortion from the likes of Lokey and his followers. Soldiers in the Army of God was screened at the 2000 Toronto Film Festival as part of its documentary series "Real to Real."
