Former Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards recently bragged to Buzzfeed News about how she helped ensure that Hollywood and the media industry pushed pro-abortion propaganda in movies and TV shows.
In a section in the article about how the Democratic Party moved towards being outwardly pro-abortion (if not, in my opinion, pro-infanticide), they wrote, “Another factor in the shift was Hollywood, Richards told BuzzFeed News. Under her leadership, Planned Parenthood worked more frequently with directors and writers on movies and television shows to help them accurately depict the abortion process and to encourage them to frame it as something normal instead of tragic. Reports from the abortion rights organization Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health, which tracks the depiction of abortion in Hollywood, show that over the past few years, plotlines depicting abortion have become more comedic ‘instead of the fraught medical and legal dramas that were the traditional genre for such depictions,’ the group’s 2018 report stated.”
Yup. Hollywood and the abortion industry team up regularly to promote abortion and push abortion onto people, especially impressionable teens. An article on shondaland.com, a website that promotes the works of producer Shonda Rhimes (Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal) brags about how she helped promote abortion.
“Shondaland shows have been pioneers in helping the public understand new medical innovation and destigmatizing tough topics, like sex and PrEP prevention for mixed HIV status couples on How to Get Away with Murder, and Grey’s Anatomy’s hemorrhage cart, which is lowering the maternal mortality rate in California, and season sixteen’s evisceration of our unjust healthcare system. Over the years, the shows have used their platforms to demystify healthcare, and abortion is no exception….Shondaland television shows have single-handedly shifted the representation of people who have abortions, and the shows constantly lead the way when it comes to nuance and complexity.”
Scandal infamously included a scene where a woman has an abortion while “Silent Night” plays.
The abortion industry and Hollywood are in bed together. This should make all parents seriously concerned about what messages are being told through television and movies.
