Anne of Armsnew movie about marilyn monroe is being criticized as a pro-life ad, with none other than Planned Parenthood coming out against some mommy and baby scenes.
caren sayingtells a boss of the PP THR … “As film and television shape many people’s understanding of sexual and reproductive health, it is critical that these portrayals accurately portray women’s actual choices and experiences.”
It mainly talks about the director, Andrew Sundayand his portrayal of Marilyn’s fetuses, which are seen fully formed in the film and actually speak at one point.
Spurch goes on to say… “Planned Parenthood respects freedom and artistic license. However, the misinformation only serves to reinforce misinformation and perpetuate stigma around sexual and reproductive health care. Every pregnancy outcome , especially abortion, needs to be portrayed sensitively, authentically and accurately in the media.”
She ends with this… “It’s a shame that the creators of Blonde chose to contribute to anti-abortion propaganda and instead stigmatize people’s health care decisions.”
For those who haven’t seen it yet: Ana, playing Marilyn, is shown pregnant on three different occasions… and two of them end in horrible forced abortions against her will that seem like nightmares and the third ends in miscarriage. . MM is shown to want to be a mother throughout the film, but forces beyond her control force her to lose the babies.
Dominik, for his part, has defended his portrayals of baby stuff… saying the sentiments surrounding this are only heightened because of Roe v Wade, adding… “no one would have given a *** for that if me”. He made the movie in 2008, and probably no one will care four years from now. And the film will not have changed.”
The film has garnered a lot of controversy for many reasons. But on this particular topic… we have to keep in mind that it’s all fiction, including how Marilyn’s pregnancies ended, or how she may or may not have felt about any of them. It is said that she miscarried in real life at least three times during her marriage to the playwright. arthur miller.
Take that for what it is, we suppose.
