Pro-life "Roe v. Wade" movie in the works

People have been quitting as they've found out more about the nature of the project:

Quote
But casting has been a problem throughout, as actors have walked away once they realized there was a pro-life tilt in the film. “We had to replace three local actors, including one who was to play Norma McCorvey, even after she begged for the role,” says Loeb.

[...]

Among the crew members who quit in protest was a costumer who left after two weeks “because of the subject matter and pressure from her peers,” says Allyn. Even the director, also a woman, quit on the first day of shooting, so Loeb and Allyn are co-directing. They are also producers and they co-wrote the script.

And when they shot in Washington, DC, their location manager there sent an email that read: “I have been doing research on the movie trying to figure out who is producing and what the gist of the story is and I finally found it and so I am withdrawing from this project. I am a staunch pro-abortion feminist activist and I will not be party to such horrible propaganda.”

If Los Angeles was nuked how many Hollywood actors would be lost?   10%, 60%? 
Retired to Rivendell.

It'll be the kiss of death for any actress's career. I wonder why someone would want to play Norma Covey if they were pro-death? I guess the actress who begged for the job didn't want to be red-pilled.
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

That's why I shall always be grateful to Valerie Bertinelli for taking on the role of the pro-life mother in this Lifetime movie. Not only did she have to play a pro-life advocate, she had to spend most of the movie lying in bed with her hair uncombed and no makeup.

They need money to finish the film because potential investors think references to Margaret Sanger and ethnic cleansing are "fake news."
