October Baby is the wonderful faith-based movie on an abortion survivor inspired by a true story. This fairly decent article in the NY TImes (yes the Times) is only a result of the support of evangelicals for the movie:
But at a time when the issue is once again causing agitation in political circles, a small film, “October Baby,” about a woman who learns she is, as the movie puts it, a “survivor of a failed abortion,” is making a dent at theaters across the country.
The movie, the first feature by a pair of filmmaking brothers from Birmingham, Ala., opened the same weekend as the chart-topping “Hunger Games,” but with the backing of evangelical groups and churches, “October Baby” managed to open at No. 8 and, through Sunday, had made $2.8 million, more than three times its production budget. It is expected to move to more than 500 screens on April 13.
Who’s getting money from “October Baby”?
The movie’s website lists Care Net and Heartbeat International as partners. They’re umbrella organizations that support anti-choice “crisis pregnancy centers” (CPCs).
Ten percent of the profits from “October Baby” go to fund organizations that match the description of Care Net CPCs. That’s more than $280,000 funneled in the last week alone toward misleading women!
So, here’s why moviegoers should have concerns about how this financial arrangement affects women.
CPCs are anti-choice operations that pose as comprehensive women’s health clinics. However, many CPCs deceive and lie to women to scare them away from choosing safe, legal abortion care. In other words, they aren’t what they appear to be.
Crisis pregnancy centers try to give alternatives to abortion, hence they are misleading! Keep going to this movie! Liberals are starting to talk!
