Disney, Google Back Initiative to Give $25K to Students to Make Pro-Abortion Films

By Movieguide® Staff

Disney, Google, and other significant companies recently announced their backing of a new program offering additional funds to University of Southern California students to create pro-abortion movies.

University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism tweeted about the new Annenberg Inclusion Initiative: “Attention senior film students: we’re thrilled to announce a new Reproductive Rights Accelerator. Apply for $25K to fund a short film on reproductive health, with a minimum of 4 recipients selected.”

The initiative comes after the recent decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion case from 1973.

According to USC, the program will help promote “reproductive health and political storytelling.”

They also thanked Women Moving Millions, a nonprofit organization that will support the project.

“Entertainment has a unique ability to reach viewers and provide that education,” stated Stacy Smith, the founder of the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative. “Our goal is to illuminate how many opportunities there are to use storytelling as a tool to expand the conversation and create substantial attitude and policy change.”

Despite the push for more pro-choice content in the media, Christian filmmakers like the Kendrick Brothers have pressed forward with hopeful movies about life, like their recent box-office success, LIFEMARK.

Movieguide® previously reported:

Actor Kirk Cameron teamed up with the Kendrick Brothers for a new movie based on a true story called LIFEMARK.

“​​This is an incredible story based on a real-life story, coming out in September, which we’re calling LIFEMARK. It’s actually based on a short documentary film that somebody sent me, and that documentary is called I LIVED ON PARKER AVENUE,” Cameron explained. “It’s the story of an 18-year-old girl who finds herself pregnant, she and her boyfriend go down to the abortion clinic, and on the way in, she hears something, a voice, from one of the people that are standing outside the clinic saying something like, ‘Please let us talk with you, your baby has 10 fingers and 10 toes.'”

“She goes inside the clinic and at the last minute, she stops the procedure and leaves,” he continued. “She carries her baby to full term, places her child for adoption, and never tells her parents or anyone. Nineteen years later, she’s married to someone else, and then gets a message that her son wants to reach out and meet with her. She thinks he probably hates her for abandoning him, but he wants to meet her to say thank you for giving me life.

“The movie follows both of their journeys, and then David discovers this mystery about his past and his beginnings that just bring everything full circle for both of them,” he added. “So it’s a very moving film. It’s an emotional roller coaster ride, it’s at least a three Kleenex movie, and it’s got action and adventure and heart and humor, just like the other Kendrick movies.”

Cameron reflected on the release of LIFEMARK, just months after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

“We couldn’t have timed this any more perfectly,” he said. “I mean, just the subject matter coming out at a time where people are so angry and divisive and just spitting mad at one another over this political issue. This is a story that is not about pro-abortion or pro-politics. This is a story that is about what happens if someone out of their own free will chooses life for their child rather than terminating that pregnancy.”

“We didn’t make it up. We didn’t write it, we couldn’t have written the script this great. And the timing, with the overturning of Roe v. Wade is just perfect,” he continued. “So I think we’re gonna get to Heaven one day and find out that God just stepped in as our ninja, PR person and marketing firm, because it just seems like he’s opened the windows of heaven and poured out His grace in terms of the timing of LIFEMARK.”
