A colleague passed along a reminder alert sent out by Nancy Northrop, the President & CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights, one of the hot-shot pro-abortion legal firms.
Northrop/CRR was celebrating that next week one of the Abortion Industry’s most reliable friend–PBS–would be broadcasting “Trapped.” As you’ll recall, this ridiculously misleading pro-abortion acronym stands for Targeted Regulations of Abortion Providers.
In English that means any regulation which does not allow the Abortion Industry to do exactly what it wants to do with no oversight, is “targeting” abortion clinics.
The documentary will be aired right around the time the Supreme Court is expected to hand down its decision in a case that director Dawn Porter no doubt would hold up as a classic example of Trapped: Texas’s pro-life 2013 HB 2.
PBS’s “Independent Lens” will air the program June 20. Three abortion clinics and an “abortion provider” in Texas, Mississippi, and Alabama will tell their tales of woe, guided by Porter.
Not surprisingly, “Trapped” was the winner of the Sundance Film Festival’s Special Jury Award for Social Impact Filmmaking.
“’Trapped’ is not a balanced analysis of the abortion debate; it makes its sympathies clear,” according to the New York Times’ Andy Webster. Wow, now there’s a surprise.
What do you think the odds are that PBS’ “Independent Lens,” or anything else associated with PBS, would give millions of dollars of free publicity to a pro-life documentary? Right, zero.
This is not PBS’s first foray into pro-abortion advocacy. As we wrote back in 2014, PBS’s “Point of View” aired “After Tiller,” an allusion to the late George Tiller who performed late, late, late abortions.
“After Tiller” is an ode to Warren Hern, Shelley Sella, LeRoy Carhart, and Susan Robinson, the four abortionists “openly performing third-trimester abortions” at the time.
Your tax dollars at work.
