Planned Parenthood and a slew of Hollywood critics are attacking Netflix’s new Marilyn Monroe film Blonde, calling it “anti-abortion propaganda” for showing the true horror and brutality of abortion.
“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 a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood.
Despite Planned Parenthood’s claims otherwise, the film is one of only a few to have the bravery to accurately portray abortion for what it is; The brutal destruction of an unborn baby and cruel violation of a woman.
The new drama tells a fictionalized depiction of Marilyn Monroe’s life based off a novel written by Joyce Carol Oates. The film is not suitable for all audiences and depicts graphic sexual content, including sexual assault. Though fictional, Blonde presents the true trauma and pain involved in abortion. In the film Monroe suffers through two forced abortions, each of which leaves her scarred and traumatized.
In two disturbing scenes, Monroe is forcefully held down while her babies are aborted against her will.
Monroe is shown deeply regretting her abortions and suffering from depression and guilt over the destruction of her preborn children. In one scene after her first abortion, Monroe receives a standing ovation for her performance in a film, while the applause drones on, her face is contorted in pain and she whispers, “for this you killed your baby?”
Haunted by the murder of her child at the hands of abortionists, Monroe is later depicted once again pregnant and talking to her unborn child. In her head she hears a baby’s voice saying, “you won’t hurt me this time, will you? Not do what you did last time?”
Monroe responds, “I didn’t… I didn’t mean to.”
Photo-realistic CGI imagery depicts Monroe’s unborn child in the womb as she converses with him or her. She comforts the child, stroking her abdomen.
Planned Parenthood took issue with this scene, criticizing the film for showing an unborn baby, who, according to the abortion business, looks too much like a human baby. “False images only serve to reinforce misinformation and perpetuate stigma around sexual and reproductive health care,” stated the Planned Parenthood representative.
Planned Parenthood’s attacks against the film, for its humanization of preborn children and for depicting a woman traumatized by abortion, are clear attempts to silence dissenting voices and hide the truth about how every abortion destroys a human child and victimizes a woman.
While some laud abortion as good and almost sacred, many women are truly traumatized and hurt by abortion and regret the loss of their children.
Planned Parenthood’s criticisms of the film Blonde are as cold and callous as they are scientifically and medically untrue. “While abortion is safe, essential healthcare,” Planned Parenthood claimed, “anti-abortion zealots have long contributed to abortion stigma… Blonde bolsters their message with a CGI-talking fetus, depicted to look like a fully formed baby.”
In pursuit of ever greater profit from their abortion business, Planned Parenthood refuses to admit or even acknowledge that preborn children are human beings capable of pain and that countless women are hurt and traumatized by abortion.
