Facebook blocks funding for major pro-life movie
By: ART MOORE
A crowdfunding site for a theatrical drama in production that promises to tell the "true story" of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that established a "right" to abortion has been blocked by Facebook.
The movie's producer, Nick Loeb, told WND the content of the pro-life movie, which exposes Planned Parenthood's roots in the eugenics movement, clearly is the reason for the censorship.
"This is stealing or fraud."
Facebook has not responded to requests for an explanation.
Loeb told WND he and his colleagues are looking for a lawyer to take on the case.
The executive producer of the movie is Alveda King, a niece of Martin Luther King Jr. and the head of the group Civil Rights for the Unborn.
The film features Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight as a Supreme Court justice.
On the film's Indiegogo crowdfunding page, the makers describe it as "the real untold story of how people lied; how the media lied; and how the courts were manipulated to pass a law that has since killed over 60 million Americans."
"Many documentaries have been made, but no one has had the courage to make an actual feature film, a theatrical movie about the true story."
The producers, calling it the "most important pro-life movie in history," say Hollywood "only wants you to hear their version of the story," noting there are three movies in development that take a pro-abortion stance.
"But you shouldn't be surprised. Hollywood has always had an agenda to influence Americans to accept abortion, even if they have to re-write history to do it."
The movie opens with Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, speaking about her "Negro project" initiative aimed at reducing the growth of African-American population in the United States.
It continues as abortionist Bernard Nathanson joins with famed feminist-activist Betty Friedan and Planned Parenthood to recruit for a legal case "a broke girl with a 10th grade education named Norma McCorvey," who became known as "Jane Roe."
The opposition to the activists seeking to legalize abortion is led by the film's protagonist, Mildred Jefferson, the first African-American woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School, who believed "that she became a doctor to protect life, not destroy it."
Later, Nathanson, through the help of new sonogram technology, "realizes he is killing babies, confesses to all the lies and becomes a leading activist in the pro-life movement," and McCorvey, realizing she had been manipulated, also joins the pro-life cause.
WND reported last month censorship of Christian and conservative speech online by tech companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google and Apple is the target of an initiative called Internet Freedom Watch, launched by the National Religious Broadcasters.
The initiative has established a website, InternetFreedomWatch.org, to document cases, including Twitter's removal of an ad by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., in October and Facebook's removal of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's post supporting Chick-fil-A in 2012.
NRB, which has published a chart with more than 30 instances of Internet censorship, said Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and a former Federal Communications Commission commissioner have endorsed the effort.
FCC chairman Ajit Pai has accused Twitter and other tech companies of being disingenuous by arguing for a free and open Internet while they "routinely block or discriminate against content they don't like."
NRB also wants Congress to hold hearings on the "severe problem of viewpoint censorship on the Internet."
In a recent case noted by Internet Freedom Watch, PJ Media D.C. editor Bridget Johnson was suspended from Twitter with no warning or explanation.
WND reported in August that days after the launch of a book arguing fascism and Nazism are ideological spawns of the left, author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza and his promotion team were locked out of his Facebook page by hackers.Movie, Facebook, Banned, Censorship, protect children, Roe V Wade, Crowd Funding, Nick Loeb
