Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Gives $8 Million to World’s Biggest Abortion Business

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s administration just promised a huge chunk of taxpayer funding to help the world’s largest abortion business expand its work.

Canadian Catholic News reports Marie Stopes International will receive an additional $8 million from Canada for “reproductive health care” projects in Africa and other parts of the world. The news comes as two African nations investigate Marie Stopes for allegations of illegal abortions.

Taxpayers in Canada have given the British-based abortion chain $24.3 million since 2017, after the Trudeau administration pledged to help plug a funding gap left by President Donald Trump’s Mexico City policy. The pro-life policy prohibits American tax dollars to groups that promote or provide abortions overseas.

Black prolifer made Wheaton students feel unsafe

From Tyler O’Neil at PJ Media:

On Thursday, black pro-life activist Ryan Bomberger shot back after the leadership of the Wheaton College student body condemned a speech he gave as threatening to people of color. In the speech, he decried the “black genocide” of abortion and criticized Black Lives Matter for teaming up with Planned Parenthood. About a week after the event, the student leaders sent an email to the entire student body, denouncing it.

“The speaker of this event, Ryan Bomberger, made several comments at the event that deeply troubled members of our community,” the students wrote. “His comments, surrounding the topic of race, made many students, staff, and faculty of color feel unheard, underrepresented, and unsafe on our campus.” More.

Reality check: Of course he made Wheaton students feel unsafe. Abortion beats black. Wheaton, by the way, used to be an evangelical college. It was okay to be pro-life there. Now possibly just another holding tank for the unemployable woke who are not yet broke – but already resentful. The comments are interesting. People are “getting it” but what to do? Apart from starving them out, I mean?

The Gosnell film could be a turning point

In terms of understanding our changed relationship with media. First, the context:

Recently, we got the news that

“Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” surpassed box office expectations upon its release last week by entering into the Top 10 grossing films with a revenue of $1,235,000 on just 668 screens.

Despite the solid performance for an independent film of this sort, nearly 200 theaters have inexplicably dropped the film, including those in major cities where it was performing the strongest. Coming into its second week, “Gosnell” has dropped from 668 theaters to 480 theaters — a full 188 theater drop, 15 of which were top-performing multiplexes.

Conversely, the filmmakers have received varying reports of theaters actively preventing customers from buying a ticket by not advertising the film or declaring it “sold out” before capacity is reached. While some of those situations may be the result of human error, Sullivan says the apparent blackballing is too consistent to go ignored. Paul Bois, “EXCLUSIVE: ‘Gosnell’ Being Dropped From Movie Theaters Despite Solid Performance” at Daily Wire

From Gabriel Hays at LifeNews:

Media Ignore “Gosnell” Movie, But Viewers Give It a 99% Rating at Rotten Tomatoes

In one of the film’s most pivotal scenes, however, these attorneys pull up to a quiet and sparsely populated courthouse, with hardly any media presence whatsoever. A poignant moment is depicted when every single bench — reserved for journalists — is shown empty. Detective James Wood (actor Dean Cain) asks, “Where is everybody?” MRC Culture’s own Katie Yoder was one of the only reporters at the real life trial in 2013, being one of a small handful who initially reported the media’s absence.

Lone blogger Molly Mulaney (Cyriana Fialo,) who spends much of the film helping the prosecutors build their case, photographs the derelict media section of the courthouse. She then posts the photo to social media, where it goes viral. Only then do members of the media acknowledge the trial, appearing in the courtroom in the final days of the proceedings. More.

Recall, if you will the report of New York Times reporters being scolded by their boss and ordered to enter the digital age… But here’s the problem: Can they enter the digital age? That would mean covering what the public wants to know, not what the progressive elite wants the public to know.

We also learn from Life news that the film stayed at 9 despite a media blackout and that Hollywood, Facebook, NPR, and Kickstarter all tried to stop the film and all failed.

Reality check: People may gradually begin to see that this isn’t only about the babies whose spines were snipped at birth. In a euthanasia society, we are all “the fetus” now and the media clearly aim to stand with the elite, the decision-makers.

Believe media if you want, about whatever you feel like, but there is no sense now in which they exist to inform the public. We will need to be our own gatekeepers.

Suppression: Theaters Drop ‘Gosnell’ Movie Despite It Being a Top-Grossing Film

When “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” was released last week, 668 theaters decided to hold screenings of the independent film. The movie quickly surpassed expectations by grossing $1.2 million on just 668 screenings of the film, Daily Wire reported. It even was put in the top 10 film list. Now, 188 theaters have dropped the film, 15 of which were top-performing multiplexes.

“Gosnell” executives aren’t surprised by the move, especially after the up-hill battle they’ve faced producing and placing the film.
