NARAL Ratchets up campaign against “October Baby”

Two days ago I reported that NARAL was gearing up to “educate” (intimidate) Sony Music Entertainment, to learn ‘em about the wickedness of the pro-life film “October Baby” (

Provident Films, the distributor of “October Baby,” is a subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment. The film’s crime?

If you go to the film’s web page (, you learn that “The producers of OCTOBER BABY have assigned 10% of the profits of the movie to the Every Life is Beautiful Fund, which will distribute funds to frontline organizations helping women facing crisis pregnancies, life-affirming adoption agencies, and those caring for orphans.”

Now, the benighted NARAL has set up a website where supporters can sign a message to Doug Morris, CEO of Provident, in which the ever-paranoid NARAL outlines the many “deceptions” of Crisis Pregnancy Centers. At the end, the letter urges Morris ”to meet with Nancy Keenan, president of the NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation, to review additional examples of why CPCs are dangerous to women.”

Well, NARAL is half-right. CPCs ARE dangerous– to the abortion industry, to NARAL, to Planned Parenthood, to all those who profit off the blood of unborn babies and the misery of their mothers.

Why do NARAL and kindred allies bother? The Abortion Industrial Complex would have to be able to print its own money to have more than it already does. “October Baby” is a little film, made for next-to-nothing, which will succeed only by word of mouth and with the help of its distributor.

Oh, right, now I get it. Threaten Provident Film—excuse me, “educate” Mr. Morris—and the momentum the film is gathering could be stopped in its tracks. (Beginning today, 223 new theaters will begin showing  “October Baby.”)

You have to appreciate one thing about NARAL: they are anything but subtle.

What should we do, besides bring our entire family to see the film (check for locations)? Drop Mr. Morris a line. His address is

Doug Morris, CEO
Sony Music Entertainment
550 Madison Avenue
New York, NY  10022

And be sure to shoot me an email after you see the film.
