(Live Action) — A slew of media companies, including Disney and NBC Universal, is partnering with the University of Southern California (USC), with the goal of creating pro-abortion short films.

Townhall has reported that Disney, NBC Universal, Google, Facebook, HBO, Sony, and many more companies have partnered with USC’s Annenberg Inclusion Initiative (AI2). This year, AI2 has created “accelerator programs” which give grants to film students, particularly those who are considered to be minorities. One of the programs will specifically promote abortion.

The students must produce and create a short film about “reproductive health” – or abortion – and the “Reproductive Rights Accelerator” will give three winning students $25,000.

Stacy L. Smith, the founder of AI2, said in a statement that she plans to release pro-abortion films in response to the pro-life movement’s success in recent years. “With the curtailing of reproductive rights, it is not only necessary to find legal solutions to protect marginalized communities, but it is essential to educate and inform audiences about these topics,” she said.

“Entertainment has a unique ability to reach viewers and provide that education. 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.”

Monika Parekh, president of the Psquared Charitable Foundation, added that she hopes these films will influence people. “Through this Accelerator program, we hope to support storytellers as they address some of the most pressing issues that will face their generation,” she said. “By leveraging the power of entertainment, these students can shape the hearts and minds of their peers and broader audiences in ways that can influence culture and decision-making.”

Unsurprisingly, the initiative has the approval of Planned Parenthood, the country’s largest abortion business. Caren Spruch, national director of arts and entertainment engagement for Planned Parenthood, said she hopes this program paves the way for changing the culture into one that is more pro-abortion.

“The entertainment community plays a critical role in educating people about their sexual and reproductive health and rights, including abortion,” she said. “With Roe v. Wade overturned and birth control, LGBTQ+ and other rights threatened, this new Annenberg Inclusion Initiative research project will provide an invaluable tool to ensure audiences are reached with medically and legislatively accurate storytelling about these issues. And, importantly, it will track the progress made. As we fight for every person’s right to bodily autonomy, working together with the Initiative and its supporters will be essential to changing the culture to achieve this goal.”

The Biden Administration has proposed a series of expansions to Title IX for all school districts — including “protection” for transgender students — attempting to "make clear that preventing someone from participating in school programs and activities consistent with their gender identity would cause harm in violation of Title IX.” 

School districts across America would force girls to share locker room with boys, changing and showering in the same areas, rooming together when traveling, and more — all if a boy says he’s a girl.  

*** Transgender accommodations are an alarming affront against the dignity and safety of girls and cannot be tolerated or implemented in America’s school districts. *** 

The dangers facing young girls are unimaginable. SEND A MESSAGE NOW to your State Board of Education: protect our girls and stop this insanity!

Florida’s state Department of Education is already sending memos across the Sunshine State, reminding school districts, private schools, charters, and more that they are not required to comply with the federal mandates — for now.  

Demand that every State Board of Education follow Florida's lead!

The proposed Title IX expansions are litmus tests to leftwing loyalty, meaning that leftwing school districts and states will be quick to attempt enforcement of these new “civil liberties” on their school children.  

The federal government will sure to add pressure on conservative districts like those in Florida — pressuring them to bow to the new ‘woke’ sexualized ideology of the left. 

SEE HOW CONSERVATIVE STATES ARE ALREADY FIGHTING BACK AGAINST TRANSGENDER INFILTRATION INTO AMERICA’S SCHOOL DISTRICTS! 

The Hill has already begun running attacks against Florida’s conservative politics, stating that “Florida is not known for its LGBTQ+ allyship.”  

Propaganda pieces masquerading as news will only increase, pressuring lawmakers and school districts to bow to the leftwing premise that men can become women. We cannot allow this anti-science position to grip America’s school districts — endangering our nation's young girls. 

*** This federal attempt to change the meaning of sexual difference is an affront to each state's liberties — a danger to girls everywhere — and it must end now! *** 

SEND A MESSAGE TO YOUR STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION TODAY, DEMANDING THAT GIRLS SPORTS AND FEMALE PRIVACY BE PROTECTED AGAINST SEXUALIZED LEFTWING POLITICS!

Just last year, male prisoners pretended to be female in order to secure transfers to female-only prisons. This is a clear “gaming of the system” that anyone with common sense clearly sees.  

Now more than ever, Americans must raise a consistent and unwavering voice that science and truth in Title IX matters and must not be changed. The future — and safety — of our girls depends on separate sports, showers, dorms, and other spaces reserved for sexual difference.  

“LGBTQ+ allyship” means ruining sexual difference and eliminating the safety of female students because a boy claims to be a girl. We must stand firmly against this gender confusion.  

The federal government continues to experiment with our children, but by adding your name to this message, we can push back with one powerful voice that our school districts must follow the science and protect female integrity! 

Demand your State Board of Education follow the science: boys cannot become girls! SIGN NOW!

However, Planned Parenthood is known for giving women inaccurate medical information and for failing to report the suspected sexual abuse of minors.

The Hollywood Reporter noted that multiple pro-abortion celebrities have agreed to lend their support, including Meryl Streep, Scarlett Johansson, Kerry Washington, Tessa Thompson, Amy Schumer, Gemma Chan, Eva Longoria, Rosario Dawson, and Jameela Jamil.

It’s clear that the pro-life movement will need to be prepared to combat the cultural war on abortion. The abortion industry has powerful allies in Hollywood, including at the supposed family-friendly Disney, and those allies are prepared to spend whatever it takes to push their pro-abortion propaganda.
