Connecting the Dots on "October Baby" and CPCs
Last week, I told you about "October Baby," a new movie that's generating a lot of buzz.
The filmmakers claim "October Baby" is just a coming-of-age story with no political agenda.
That's an interesting claim, given the filmmakers' ties to extreme right-wing groups like the American Family Association and Focus on the Family. The filmmakers even did screenings of "October Baby" to help support the Mississippi's failed "personhood" initiative.
What's more, 10 percent of the profits from "October Baby" go to fund organizations that match the description of anti-choice "crisis pregnancy centers" (CPCs)--facilities that regularly deceive and lie to women seeking abortion care.
Whether someone wants to make a film with a political bias is not the issue. The point is that American moviegoers have the right to know whether their ticket dollars are going to fund organizations that mislead women.
That's why we're calling for a meeting with Doug Morris, the CEO of Sony Music Entertainment. (Provident Films, the distributor of "October Baby," is a subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment.)
We want to educate Mr. Morris' company about the danger CPCs pose to women's health.
CPCs rely on secrecy and deception in their efforts to trick women. They're counting on people not knowing how they really operate.
That's why it's so important that we get the word out.
Sign our letter to Doug Morris today! The American people deserve to know if their money's going to CPCs.
