Remember when the left talked about safe, legal, and rare? They’re much more open about the truth now.

Barnard College launches movie contest to ‘celebrate’ abortion
Barnard College wants “to celebrate and support abortion stories.”
Its annual Athena Film Festival recently closed submissions for its mentorship program. Winners of the script competition will be announced at the film festival scheduled for Feb. 29- March 4, 2024.
Winners of the project will receive mentorship on how to better promote the direct killing of innocent preborn babies. “The Abortion Pipeline Project (APP) is an annual narrative screenplay competition for feature and short film scripts which seeks to seed and source a variety of narrative film projects which center abortion,” the description states.
It is “a new fund to celebrate and support abortion stories.”
The project “will introduce writers to reproductive justice leaders to ensure the scripts are steeped in expertise.”
The goal is “to give creatives a positive and generative experience of collaboration with abortion justice experts within the reproductive justice movement.”
Partners with the New York City college include pro-abortion group We Testify and filmmaker Jess Jacobs. Neither responded to two requests for comment sent in the past month that asked if they would consider themselves “pro-abortion” versus “pro-choice.”
They were also asked to define the word “women.”
We Testify says it “unapologetically believes that people who have abortions are our future.”
Barnard also did not respond to requests for comment.
“One in three women and birthing people in the United States has had an abortion, a reality we have yet to see reflected in the lives of characters we love onscreen,” Jacobs stated in the Barnard news release.
Filmmakers were asked to “have a woman, trans or non-binary character(s) in leadership role(s) or position(s)” and “contain representation of, meaningful mention of, or thematic reference to abortion.”
