New York Magazine’s culture outlet The Cut attacked the movie about former Planned Parenthood nurse Abby Johnson’s biopic as an “anti-abortion propaganda film” based on her “personal (and also precarious) account.”
Caitlin Moscatello claimed Unplanned was trying to distance itself from people like the killer of abortion doctor George Tiller, but was “hypocritical” because the movie’s message contributes to the same murderous extremism. Moscatello has also written for Glamour and GQ magazines.
“Films like Unplanned can radicalize people who are vulnerable to extremism and have the potential to become violent. It is films like Unplanned that could get more people killed,” she claimed. Moscatello also tried to tie his murderer to pro-life groups and “conservative media.”
Moscatello also cast doubt on Johnson’s first-hand knowledge of Planned Parenthood and suggested it could be designed to inspire such attacks. She wrote that the movie was promoted “under the guise that this is a narrative based in fact rather than a dangerous call to action.”
Her supposed evidence for such extreme claims was that the film has a “familiar villain” in Planned Parenthood, positive portrayal of “Christian anti-abortion group” Coalition for Life, and that it showed the actress playing Johnson telling other pro-lifers that many women will drive away from an abortion clinic if they see protesters praying outside.
