For instance, when it comes to the choice of whether or not to see a film that exposes the soft, dirty underbelly of the abortion industry, or the choice of a movie theater owner to show this film, abortion activists aren’t too cool on that choice.
The world premiere of the abortion industry exposé “BloodMoney” has been delayed by what its producers say was the pressure that pro-abortion activists put on the owner of the theatre where the film was to feature.
The Albany Times-Union reports that Roman Jaquez, a filmmaker from Troy, New York and producer of “BloodMoney,” said that the owner of the Spectrum 8 Theatres called him over a week ago to inform him that he had canceled the screening after receiving phone calls from pro-abortion activists threatening to picket the theater for debuting the film.
Jaquez had rented the theater for four screenings scheduled for last Wednesday and Thursday, and personally had to turn away people who came to the Spectrum Theater on Delaware Ave. expecting to see the show. Ticket holders either had their tickets refunded or exchanged.
There are some in society who will always champion total sexual autonomy and the profit gained from the abortion above all else, I am convinced the only way abortion-on-demand maintains any significant support among the general population is the amazing level of ignorance about the topic.
Nearly 20 years ago, I was very naive about abortion. I believed the pap fed to me by the “mainstream” media that it was simply about “choice” and a woman’s right to make decisions concerning her own body (never giving any thought to the reality that abortion takes away the choice to even live of the unborn child in her womb). I did nothing whatsoever when a friend pressured his girlfriend (a mutual friend) into aborting their child; I simply saw it as retroactive contraception. Even after having spent countless hours trying in vain to comfort a girlfriend who had an abortion before we met, of listening to her wracking sobs of guilt over what she had done…I still remained clueless.
It wasn’t until a friend challenged me to look beyond pop-culture pap and investigate the issue for myself that I learned not only about the moral implications of abortion, but the science as well. I learned that God really does value all human life, including human life in the womb. I also learned that science (the only religion some will listen to in the modern world) also points to human life in the womb.
Carol Everett, whom I have heard before speaking on this topic, was once an owner of an abortion clinic in Texas. In the trailer here she tells about some of the sweet, innocent facts concerning the abortion industry. She talks about the plan to “sex up” young girls by breaking down their sense of modesty, distance them from the values they have been taught and from their parents altogether, and…
“Our goal was three to five abortions from every girl from the ages 13 to 18″
“So they would turn to us when we would give them a low-dose birth control pill they would get pregnant on, or a defective condom”
You might recall that a few years ago, Consumer Reports tested a large variety of condoms for effectiveness…and found that several brands offered by Planned Parenthood were among the worst. By offering ineffective contraceptives and abortion services, Planned Parenthood makes a killing (both financially and literally) on both ends of the process. What a clever business model!
Everett acknowledges being involved in the deaths of over 35,000 human beings.
Norma McCorvey, the woman behind the infamous Roe v. Wade decision, is also interviewed in the film. You will see her in the trailer stating that when she was involved in the abortion industry (before she became a Christian), they asked for cash because “you don’t have to report cash [to the IRS].”
Some have blood on their hands because they took “blood money” in the abortion industry. Others, like me, have blood on their hands because we advocated access to abortion, or at the very least did nothing to protect innocent human life. But having realized the truth, we have become committed to doing what we can to right our wrongs and educate about this important issue.
“Blood Money” is a crash-course in the details of our national shame.
