Hollywood is far left politically, and proudly so.
Anyone who espouses even moderately conservative views puts his or her career in jeopardy.
But one actress spoke out about her views on abortion after one movie role.
The Democrats are unabashedly the party of abortion.
Democrats now want abortion to be legal up to the point of birth and funded by the government.
And if anyone disagrees, they can get out of the Democratic Party.
That’s the chilling message that Tom Perez—chairman of the Democratic National Committee—sent when he said pro-lifers were no longer welcome in the party.
This sentiment has bled into leftist Hollywood, which now functions as a propaganda wing of the Democratic Party.
Any films dealing with abortion from a conservative position immediately get maligned.
Gosnell, a film about the notorious abortion doctor who murdered several postnatal babies, received almost no reviews prior to its release, was banned from advertising on NPR and was pulled from theaters quickly despite a respectable box office return.
An upcoming film about the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case had to be filmed in secret because left-wing activists kept harassing actors and crew members on set.
Some crew members even walked off the project once they learned the subject matter.
Even financiers contributed to the film in secret, so as to avoid harassment.
This is the umbrella under which conservatives work in the entertainment industry; they’re cowed into silence for fear of retribution simply for holding mainstream views.
The upcoming film Unplanned faces similar challenges.
The movie deals with the life of Abby Johnson, a former leftist and Planned Parenthood director who became a pro-life activist after witnessing an abortion.
The grotesque procedure forced her to challenge all of her assumptions, and she eventually became a crusader against Planned Parenthood, which primarily operates as an abortion mill despite the PR efforts to convince people otherwise.
The star of Unplanned is Ashley Bratcher, who had a powerful thematic connection to the film.
Bratcher considered herself pro-life but became vocal about her views after auditioning for the film.
Bratcher discussed the project with her mother, and she confessed that she almost aborted her daughter.
In an essay published on Fox News, Bratcher wrote what her mother relayed to her:
“I was at the clinic sitting on the table when the nurse who was very pregnant came in to talk to me. I felt sick. I couldn’t do it. I got up and walked out.”
Many women have this feeling, but some abortion clinics try to mitigate it by not showing women their ultrasound.
A study at an abortion clinic showed that 86.9% of women who viewed an ultrasound of their babies changed their minds.
Bratcher also wrote:
“I don’t know how to put in words what it feels like to learn you were seconds away from never existing.”
Thankfully Bratcher’s mother chose life, and she will get to inspire others to do the same by playing the courageous Abby Johnson.
