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. The film has yet to be released.
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 decided to ban fundraising ads for the movie. King had embarked on a $2 million fundraising effort to pay for the cost of making the documentary. When Bill Donohue learned what happened, he immediately sent King a $10,000 donation from the Catholic League.
Here is what Donohue told the media: “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.”
The size of the donation resulted in the Catholic League being named as an associate producer of the film.
We are happy to report that Facebook rescinded its ban on accepting fundraising ads for the movie, saying the ban was due to some technological glitch. No matter, we are proud to be associated with what is being billed as the “real untold story” of abortion and the role played by Planned Parenthood.
