Hollywood has demonstrated a radical pro-abortion bias for years. In addition to pushing abortion in film and television, at the bidding of the abortion industry, Hollywood is notorious for pressuring mothers to end their children’s lives in abortion to advance their careers.
The latest example of the influence of the abortion mob in Hollywood came from the annual Golden Globe Awards, presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association earlier this month. Despite host Ricky Gervais’s over-the-top comedic warning to award recipients not to bring up politics in their acceptance speeches, one celebrity decided to speak in favor of abortion, the killing of innocent human life.
Actress Michelle Williams accepted the award for “Best Performance in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television” in recognition of her role in the FX series “Fosse/Verdon.” Previously, Williams won an Emmy for the same role in the series. For the Golden Globes acceptance speech, however, Williams, who is visibly pregnant, praised abortion and appeared to suggest that she had undergone an abortion that advanced her career.
Williams’ speech began innocuously, as she said, “When you put this in someone’s hands, you’re acknowledging the choices that they make as an actor — moment by moment, scene by scene, day by day. But you’re also acknowledging the choices they make as a person — the education they pursue, the training they sought, the hours they put in.”
The speech then turned to abortion by capitalizing on the abortion industry’s misappropriation of “choice.” Williams continued, “I’m grateful for the acknowledgment of the choices I’ve made, and I’m also grateful to have lived at a moment in our society where choice exists.” As the audience began to react positively to the pro-abortion rallying cry, Williams said, “Because as women and as girls, things can happen to our bodies that are not our choice. I’ve tried my very best to live a life of my own making, and not just a series of events that happened to me, but one that I could stand back and look at and recognize my handwriting all over — sometimes messy and scrawling, sometimes careful and precise — but one that I had carved with my own hand.”
Tacitly suggesting she underwent an elective abortion to advance her career, Williams added, “And I wouldn’t have been able to do this without employing a woman’s right to choose, to choose when to have my children and with whom.” Williams is currently pregnant with her fiancé Thomas Kail’s child, and she has a teenage daughter, Matilda, from her relationship with Heath Ledger, who passed away in 2008.
William’s highly personal, rabidly pro-abortion message won immediate and fawning praise from those in attendance and anti-Life media outlets. Tiffany Haddish, who presented the award, applauded enthusiastically and exclaimed, as if there were any doubt, “I’m about that women’s right to choose,” by which she meant elective abortion.
While Williams’ speech received lavish praise and celebration, we should note that she never defined what women are “choosing.” Of course, discussing what she actually meant would have been horrific. Following Williams’ logic, the success of women’s careers comes at the expense of their children; the cost of a woman “owning her own life” sometimes requires suctioning, dismembering, and ripping her own child from her womb. There is a reason that the abortion mob demanding “choice” are reluctant to discuss the details of that “choice” and the other people involved without choice.
Do mainstream Americans really believe that women’s success requires the death of their own children? Nothing could be further from the truth. Despite Hollywood’s insistence on pro-abortion extremism, there are countless examples of courageous mothers who have succeeded in their careers while bringing new life into the world. Pro-Life communities support mothers who choose life, because Pro-Life communities want what is best for the mother and child.
One of the unique responses to Williams’ abortion diatribe came from model and former America’s Next Top Model contestant Leah Darrow. While in labor with her fifth child, Darrow appeared by video on Instagram with a message for women. Darrow said, “I want to let all you women know, all you young ladies who haven’t had babies or are maybe listening to what the culture says about birth, and women, and babies, and choice. Babies don’t keep us from our dreams.”
Darrow concluded, “I’m getting ready to deliver a baby that will not keep me from my professional growth, but will make me better because of it. And I’m so honored and excited, and I can’t wait to have this baby.”
