Emmy Awards group promoting abortion event, propaganda, hosted by Logan Browning

There is nothing surprising about stating that Hollywood is overwhelmingly pro-abortion, and the upcoming Emmy Awards appears to be ripe with propaganda as the leftist activists strategizes.

On November 7, an event called “The Power of TV: Reproductive Health and Access in Storytelling” will take place in North Hollywood, according to an announcement posted on the Television Academy of Arts and Sciences’ website. The Academy is the organization responsible for doling out Emmy Awards every year.

“Developed in partnership with the USC Annenberg Norman Lear Center’s Hollywood, Health & Society,” the post says, the event “assembles storytellers and experts to discuss television’s depiction of reproductive choice, family planning and maternal health. From Maude to Murphy Brown to Jane the Virgin and Dear White People, how has television influenced attitudes and access to safe reproductive choice and women’s healthcare?”

The discussion, which will be open to the public but has sold out, will be moderated by Dear White People actor Logan Browning and feature University of San Francisco sociologist Gretchen Sisson, as well as Hollywood creators Janine Sherman Barrois (ClawsCriminal MindsER), Dorothy Fortenberry (The Handmaid’s TaleThe 100), Amanda Lasher (The Bold TypeRiverdaleGossip Girl), and Hayley Schore (The ResidentCode Black).

Murphy Brown is considered a critical moment in television history for tackling abortion, as Brown’s divorced lead character ultimately chose life, but Vice President Dan Quayle infamously criticized the show for “mocking the importance of fathers by bearing a child alone and calling it just another lifestyle choice.”

Quayle was widely derided for the speech, but in 1993 The Atlantic went on to publish Barbara Dafoe Whitehead’s admission that “Dan Quayle Was Right, based on a “growing body of social-scientific evidence” on children in fatherless homes.

The push for pro-abortion TV matches that of the film sphere. Many of America’s biggest celebrities vocally support Planned Parenthood, and every major distributor rejected Gosnell, a rare exception telling the true story of abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s murder trial, forcing producers to rely on crowdfunding.
