Posted on 06/06/2014 4:46:27 AM PDT by Kaslin
The feminist film critics can exhale now. Someone has finally concocted their dream movie: an "abortion comedy." Because apparently nothing sounds funnier than an unplanned one-night stand and a courageous destruction of God's most beautiful and most innocent creation.
It's called "Obvious Child." Feminist lingo sells this monstrosity. Former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Jenny Slate plays Donna Stern, a standup comedian who "is forced to face the uncomfortable realities of independent womanhood for the first time." A "drunken hookup -- and epic lapse in prophylactic judgment -- turns out to be the beginning of a hilarious and totally unplanned journey of self-discovery and empowerment."
Rolling Stone magazine described one scene of allegedly hilarious "empowerment" between female characters. "You're going to kill it," Donna's best friend Nellie says before a standup comedy set the night before her abortion. "Tomorrow I am," Donna replies, and "the two unravel in sheepish giggles."
If America laughs at this, America is beyond redemption.
The New York Times hailed how the film doesn't veer from a righteous feminist path. Donna does not consult the man who impregnated her, even though she likes him, and she "never wavers on her course of action." The cameras accompany her into the Planned Parenthood clinic for the execution.
The filmmakers consulted with Planned Parenthood to make the film "accurate," at least to abortion-loving feminists. They filmed at their abortion mill in New Rochelle, New York.
The director, Gillian Robespierre, announced with pride, "We knew the conflict wasn't going to be 'Will she or won't she?' I've already seen the movie where somebody's torturing themselves over the decision." A moral dilemma? A stay of execution? "That's the formula we were fighting against. We're just so brainwashed to believe that's what a happy ending is."
Feminists have been grumpy for years about movies like "Juno" and "Knocked Up" sending a pro-life message. Slate, the film's star, argued: "a woman who is not ready to have a baby making it work is not a happy ending to me. It's a personal nightmare." She added, "I've had women say to me: 'Thank you. I was feeling guilty for not feeling guilty.'"
In politics, abortion advocates love to fight about the rare exceptions: the rape, the incest, the late diagnosis of Down syndrome or disabilities. But this movie displays the much more typical abortion. It's a clumsy episode of casual sex between strangers, followed by a violent vacuum pump "cleanup" at Planned Parenthood.
The abortion, in fact, is pitched as a moment of maturity, authenticity, bravery and resolve. "Donna finds out along the way what it means to be as brave in life as she is on stage," the publicity materials claim. There's not really a death so much, just a moment of personal growth.
Of course, to sell the movie, they oddly claim this abortion-advocating movie doesn't have an agenda. "Our film is not an agenda movie in any way," Slate told Rolling Stone. "The whole point is that women have this procedure, and they should have it safely, and it's a part of life. It doesn't have to be this giant obelisk sticking out." That is not an agenda, no siree.
A little murder is a part of life. A little life matters not at all.
Feminists like these movie-makers don't see a moral dilemma. They see abortion as a natural part of the daily grind. You wake up, you get an abortion, you have a cheeseburger. The critics call this a "refreshing matter-of-factness" about abortion.
It can also be described as feminist nihilism. The selfishness and autonomy of the woman is paramount, and the accidental baby is just cannon fodder. When the murder of the innocents is celebrated as comedy, civil society is destroyed.
“You’re going to kill it,” Donna’s best friend Nellie says before a standup comedy set the night before her abortion. “Tomorrow I am,” Donna replies, and “the two unravel in sheepish giggles.”
Seriously, what can be said? We don’t have words that have been invented to properly cover the hideousness of this level of human depravity.
And I'm sure it will become the next Shawshank Redemption when it makes it to cable.
This is good. Anytime abortion is featured, it goes badly for the pro-aborts. In order for Abortion to be supported, it must be “impersonalized”. “That isn’t a child and the abortion never really happened”.
It operates best in the shadows where it can be considered “women’s health” rather than abortion.
No culture can withstand these assaults. None. Hope that asteroid hits...
“It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” Hebrews 10:31
I don’t want to, but in my heart I agree with you. There can be no reconciliation with this evil that has invaded the very soul of our nation.
I just can’t see a way out. I think the culture has to collapse and then attempt to build back over the next 100 or 200 years. If it ever does.
To read this while the D Day commemoration occurs beggars belief!
Sorry to be such a downer.
The success of this hideous venture will be a measure of America’s future. If it fails, even with the unwavering drumbeat the media will give it, then it is a sign that while Hollywood has no morals, at least some of the public still do. So there is still hope for us.
And if it succeeds, it must serve to steel our resolve. A defeat is not the time to quit. If it was, Christ never would have made it to Calvary.
There are two Americas, and the one in the majority is laughing at stuff like this all the time.
The same idiots that freak out if we kill a wolf! I hate half of this country with a passion.
No kidding. When this hits basic cable it will no doubt be chock-full of fundraising ads for PETA.
As much as they would like to turn all women into conscienceless psychopaths, it’s not going to happen to the vast majority. Ultimately, you can’t undo biology. You can’t undo soul. That inner voice in a person, no matter how brainwashed they have become, no matter how faint and muted and gagged that voice is, that will speak up when things are quiet and dark and they are alone. I’m not discounting their power. I certainly get that and it is impressive what they have “achieved”. Millions of abortions later is testament to that, but they will not be the ultimate victors...not against God and nature no matter how many “comedies” they make. .
This will be lauded by abortion propagandists, i.e., the “elite” media, but have no more audience than the rest of the cr@p they praise. “Rolling Stone,” which is treated as a real cultural force, has almost no subscribers. It’s sent free to everyone who buys an event ticket from Ticketmaster.
That idiot Ashley Judd is the poster girl for that upside down way of thinking.
I love wild animals. I love to watch them. But some will kill you if they get a chance. I have never heard of a baby killing anyone. Well accept that crazy case in some third world hell hole where the baby was arrested with a bunch of crazies a month or so back.
We should take ole Ashley up to bear country and tie a fish around her neck. :)
I presume this woman has had an abortion in real life. Her only hope --- and ours --- is that the pain grows, and grows, and grows, until it bursts through her heart of stone. That God replaces her heart of stone with a heart of flesh, and she receives the gift of cleansing tears.
She's human. after all --- though she tries to suppress it. And any human mother --- heck, any mammal with a glimmer of self-awareness --- has a strong instinct of protective tenderness toward her own young.
Miss Marmelstein, ma'am, if that asteroid's coming, I hope it comes right down my chimney. But I have to hold out hope for repentance and mercy. The Living God is just--- but Mercy is His other name.
Well, I hope it doesn’t - you’re too nice to have an asteroid down your chimney! I’m just very depressed over Obama this week. And now this.
