Planned Parenthood condemned the Ana de Armas movie “Blonde,” claiming it contributes to “anti-abortion propaganda” by showing a vocal fetus.

Planned Parenthood employee Caren Spruch said the creators of “Blonde” “contribute to anti-abortion propaganda and stigmatize people’s health care decisions instead.

In the film “Blonde,” Marilyn Monroe is shown undergoing two illegal abortions against her wishes, which are represented by a computer-generated fetus.

The fetus is personified onscreen, asking Monroe, “You won’t hurt me this time, will you?”

In ‘Blonde,’ Marilyn Monroe’s character is seen getting two illegal abortions.

“As film and TV shapes many people’s understanding of sexual and reproductive health, it’s critical these depictions accurately portray women’s real decisions and experiences,” Spruch said.

Planned Parenthood condemned the Ana de Armas movie "Blonde," claiming it contributes to "anti-abortion propaganda" by showing a vocal fetus.

While the film has received criticism for its hyper-sexualization of Monroe, Spruch was more concerned with the “fetus depicted to look like a fully formed baby … Planned Parenthood respects artistic license and freedom. However, false images only serve to reinforce misinformation and perpetuate stigma around sexual and reproductive health care.”

Caren Spruch, a Planned Parenthood director, says that in order for ‘Blonde’ to be an accurate portrayal of women’s experiences with illegal abortion, it is critical that the depiction accurately portray real decisions and experience.

Since Roe v. Wade was overturned by the conservative U.S. Supreme Court, abortion has become a more pressing political issue.

At the “Blonde” premiere in Spain, Ana de Armas plays Marilyn Monroe.

In an interview with The Wrap, Andrew Dominik denied that the scene had any political significance.

“You see it constantly time and again that she’s reacting to a story that she’s carrying inside her,” Dominik said I believe that this desire to look at “And I think sort of this desire to look at ‘Blonde’ through this Roe v. Wade lens is everybody else doing the same thing. They’ve got a certain agenda where they feel like the freedoms of women are being compromised, and they look at ‘Blonde’ and they see a demon, but it’s not really about that. I think it’s very difficult for people to step outside of the stories they carry inside themselves and see things of their own volition. And I think that’s really what the movie is about. The dangers of that. But you know, it’s difficult for people to be able to hold two things in their mind at once. It’s either black or white.” through the Roe v.

It’s hard for people to see things differently than what they’re used to, outside of their comfort zone. To me, the film is about finding oneself when faced with adversity. The dangers of that But it can be tough for people to keep more than one thing in their mind simultaneously. It’s either black or white.”
