    Documentary Examines "Blood Money" Motive in Abortion Industry

    Washington D.C., Sep 1, 2009 (CNA).- An upcoming pro-life documentary named “Blood Money” aims to shake the viewer “to the very core” and expose the “inconvenient truth” about the money involved in the abortion industry. The documentary interviews pro-life leaders, former abortionists, and women who have been harmed by abortion.

    One of the interviewees featured in the movie trailer, Carol Everett, was a part owner of several abortion clinics in the Dallas area who has repented of her involvement in abortion.

    In the Blood Money trailer she talks of the unsavory practices her clinics were involved in.

    “Our goal was three to five abortions from every girl from the ages 13 to 18,” she says.

    Everett describes a plan to “sell abortions” by using sex education to “break down” the natural modesty of children, separate them from their parents and their values, and establish the abortion provider as the sex expert in young people’s lives.

    “So they would turn to us when we would give them a low-dose birth control pill they would get pregnant on, or a defective condom,” she says.

    Later in the trailer she remarks: “I recognized that I’d been involved in the deaths of over 35,000 babies.”

    The film is being directed by David Kyle. Its executive producer is John Zipp.

    Speaking in a Tuesday e-mail interview, Kyle told CNA that the message of Blood Money is that abortion “destroys lives.”

    “Not only that of the baby, but of the mother, father and families that have to deal with the consequences of what is sold to them as a quick fix. We then tie in the monetary gains that are being made in the name of helping women. This is an industry that when the product proves to be defective, you don't get a refund.”

    He explained that the business of abortion was not the filmmakers’ initial focus.

    “The original title of the film was going to be ‘The American Holocaust’. We had set out to present the truth about abortion, from the destruction of the human being, to the effect it has on the women that make the choice to abort,” he said.

    During interviews, the “monetary aspects” of the abortion industry kept repeatedly surfacing.

    “So while we still cover in part some of our original idea we honed in on the money that is made on the slaughter of the unborn,” he explained.

    He and John Zipp had first developed the concept in 2004 because they felt that no one else was talking about the nature and effects of abortion.

    “It does come up at election time or when there is opening on the Court, but only in general terms. We believed that the mass media doesn't want to go into details because they know if they did, more people would oppose it.”

    Kyle and Zipp thought a documentary would be the best way to reach a large audience and to force a conversation on abortion.

    He explained that most of the film is testimony of individuals involved in the abortion industry like Everett or former abortionist Dr. Bernard Nathanson, or those who have been harmed by their abortion decision.

    Pro-life leaders like Norma McCorvey, Fr. Frank Pavone, Dr. Alveda King, and Fr. Thomas Euteneuer were interviewed for the documentary and have at least one appearance in the film.

    Kyle explained that he had no background in film, describing Blood Money’s development as a “crash course” in filmmaking. The filmmakers hired a professional director of photography, Jeff Butler of Cabin One Productions, to do the camera work. They also brought Roman Jaquez on board to edit and improve the film.

    Asked about his decision to use the documentary genre Kyle said, “I think pro-lifers underuse filmmaking period.” In fact, Kyle said he could only name “The Silent Scream” as another pro-life documentary that he has seen.

    Listing aspects of abortion that should be covered in future documentaries, he named the humanity of the baby, the harm abortion does to women and the sale of parts from aborted babies’ remains.

    “Film is a way to reach a wide audience with the values you want to pass on. If they are done with an eye on quality I believe people would go and see them and could compete with the liberal attitude of Hollywood,” he stated.

    Kyle told CNA the makers of “Blood Money” are planning at least one follow-up film focusing on the women interviewed for the documentary.

    “We have so much compelling testimony that did not make it in this film,” he said.

    “Blood Money” has no scheduled release date, since the filmmakers still need to find a distribution company that will “take the chance on something this controversial.” He said some distributors are interested in seeing the film upon its completion, which Kyle predicted would come at the end of September.

    I think the definition of "partiality" is already been skewed in favor of the killers. Words are very subtle tools. Killing the unborn generation is a pretty deadly practice, but the movie apparently examines the economic motivations that have sprung up, the industry, and any economic interest in America will fight for its continued survival, regardless of its perceived immorality.

    Sounds to me like Carol Everett deserves jail time. Fraudulent healthcare, deceptive business practices. Look hr up from some non-pro-life sources and see what you think. One telling article I saw stated that she was fired from her position and only then did she go on the attack against abortion clinics. I'd be interested to see who else they interview to make their case. One extremely greedy person does not stand for all doctors who perform abortions.

    This sounds.... sketchy. She claims to have been involved in practices such as "give[ing] them a low-dose birth control pill they would get pregnant on, or a defective condom."

    My BS meter flew through the roof when I read that. What proof does she offer that this goes on beyond her word?

    The problem with compaining about the slaughter of the unborn is that the people who voice this complaint seem nearly as upset about contraception. So perhaps they should just be honest and say that they're not so much concerned about slaughter as they are about insuring as much population growth as possible.

    immorality???
    according to whom?

    according to me, you are the immoral one for trying to force people to have unwanted children which most likely will have sh!tty lives.
    ...but that's just me.

    So what? Being biased doesn't detract from the facts as long as the facts are presented accurately. "But it's biased so...." no, it may be biased but that doesn't mean the facts were rewritten.

    Thanks for the heads up about the film Max.

    Probably a well-funded effort from the same guys who are responsible for more than 100,000 people dead in Iraq.

    No, they are more concerned about enslaving women by making them stay at home and become baby factories. Among these are many married lazy fat women who hate single, dynamic women.

    I don't take issue with people presenting their point of view on controversial issues such as abortion through documentaries. Just wish they would call it what it is. Propaganda.

    Propaganda

    Main Entry: pro·pa·gan·da
    Pronunciation: \ˌprä-pə-ˈgan-də, ˌprō-\
    Function: noun
    Etymology: New Latin, from Congregatio de propaganda fide Congregation for propagating the faith, organization established by Pope Gregory XV †1623
    Date: 1718
    1 capitalized : a congregation of the Roman curia having jurisdiction over missionary territories and related institutions
    2 : the spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person
    3 : ideas, facts, or allegations spread deliberately to further one's cause or to damage an opposing cause; also : a public action having such an effect

    (couldn't help myself with posting the definition) :)

    God forbid you take the time to consider that your current view is wrong. It's clear that abortion services make money for PP, etc. It's also clear such entities block law enforcement and scare away genuine public oversight.

    Perhaps you pro-aborts are just wrong? Why not check it out?

    What kind of blocking of law enforcement are you talking about? Sorry if I refuse to give that trailer any hits on youtube, but I am not going to play a part in that. Have you researched these people outside of reading your very biased newspaper? Why are you so concerned over what other people are doing to reproduce or not anyway?

    I wonder what they hope to accomplish by releasing this pig drivel to the general public? Certainly they are not expecting anything other than more galvanization of existing views? Pointless.
