Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a new film about the abortion movement:
Alveda King, niece of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., is an executive producer of a new movie, “Roe v. Wade,” that chronicles the origins of the abortion movement in the United States.
From the racist views of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, to the founding efforts of pro-abortion activist Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the movie also focuses on the role that Norma McCorvey (the “Jane Roe” plaintiff in Roe v. Wade) played in the infamous Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion.
Both Nathanson and McCorvey later pivoted and became pro-life activists; they also converted to Catholicism. The film ends by addressing technological advances showing the beginning of human life in the womb.
Incredibly, Facebook is banning fundraising ads for the movie. King is trying to raise $2 million to pay for the cost of making the documentary, and has already secured 1,000 screens. To that end, the Catholic League is making a $10,000 donation today, making us an associate producer of the film.
We urge everyone to contribute to this movie. You can do so by going to the website, www.indiegogo.com.
Let’s send Facebook and all the other censorial activists in the pro-abortion industry a lesson—we will not be silenced in our campaign to promote the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death.
