NARAL to “educate” company whose subsidiary is distributing “October Baby”

It’s no secret that pro-abortionists are thugs and hypocrites who will do most anything to shut down Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs) and stifle free speech at every turn. Not satisfied with shoveling in state and federal money by the truckload, they work overtime to make sure not a dime—directly or indirectly—goes to CPCs. All this, of course, in the phony-baloney guise of making sure women receive “accurate information”—this from the same folks who will go to ANY length to kill informed consent legislation.

We’ve written a lot about October Baby, including how a movie filmed on a shoestring budget is making the Abortion Industry quake with fear. So, what do you do if you have zero tolerance for anything or anybody that might make women think about having an abortion? Or help them to care for their baby if they choose life? Resort to coercion, of course, under the pretense of furthering “truth.”

The title of the piece is “Connecting the Dots on ‘October Baby’ and CPCs,” and it appears on NARAL’s “Blog for Choice.” (Yes, I get the irony of pro-censorship types flying under the flag of “choice.”) You can read the anything-but-subtle threat at

The logic (such as it is) is that familiar blend of bloated guilt-by-association paranoia mixed with the thrill of smothering the baby—in this case October Baby—in the media crib. The anticipation gives them goosebumps. Doesn’t get much better than this for the NARALs of this world.

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.”

This cannot stand! After all, according to NARAL, these are “facilities that regularly deceive and lie to women seeking abortion care.” Never mind that this allegation is as deceptive, dishonest, and disingenuous as the nonsensical (and tiresome) “war on women.”

But so what? Here’s what:

“Whether someone wants to make a film with a political bias is not the issue. The point is that American moviegoers have the right to know whether their ticket dollars are going to fund organizations that mislead women.

“That’s why we’re calling for a meeting with Doug Morris, the CEO of Sony Music Entertainment. (Provident Films, the distributor of ‘October Baby,’ is a subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment.)

“We want to educate Mr. Morris’ company about the danger CPCs pose to women’s health.”

October Baby is scheduled to open in hundreds of additional theaters in the very near future. The influence it is already exerting will be magnified. And more money will go to CPCs.

If you can properly “educate” Sony Music Entertainment to the “dangers” of October Baby, maybe you can kill two birds with one stone.

Is there no level to which these characters won’t sink? Knowing who we are talking about, to ask the question is to answer it.

Just be sure that you and everyone you know sees October Baby. You can find out where it is showing near you by going to
