Abortion mill Planned Parenthood is blasting Netflix’s new Marilyn Monroe movie for “stigmatizing people’s health care decisions” with its portrayal of an unborn child upset by the prospect of being killed in the womb, according to Breitbart News.
The Monroe biopic Blonde depicts the Hollywood star’s anguish over two illegal abortions which were reportedly forced upon her against her will. In the film, Monroe (Ana de Armas) is depicted as having conversations with her dead fetuses. In one scene, the fetus asks the tortured star, “You won’t hurt me this time, will you?”
“As film and TV shapes many people’s understanding of sexual and reproductive health, it’s critical these depictions accurately portray women’s real decisions and experiences,” said Caren Spruch, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s national director of arts and entertainment engagement.
“Planned Parenthood respects artistic license and freedom,” Spruch added. Riiiight. “However, false images only serve to reinforce misinformation and perpetuate stigma around sexual and reproductive health care. Every pregnancy outcome — especially abortion — should be portrayed sensitively, authentically and accurately in the media. We still have much work to do to ensure that everyone who has an abortion can see themselves onscreen. It is a shame that the creators of Blonde chose to contribute to anti-abortion propaganda and stigmatize people’s health care decisions instead.” [Emphasis added]
Fact check: abortion is not health care. It is infanticide.
The shame is that the horrific reality of abortion and its emotional impact on many women is barely ever acknowledged in pop culture, and when it is, pro-infanticide spokeswomen like Spruch leap to denounce it as “propaganda” and “misinformation.”
