Judge protects videos exposing ‘savage’ abortions
Clinics sued over copyright infringement from parodies
Pro-life organizations whose leaders parodied an abortionist’s promotional video that portrayed how “good” and “normal” the procedure was by inserting graphic images of aborted babies have been cleared of copyright infringement claims.
U.S. District Judge James V. Selna has ruled in a case brought by the Northland Family Planning Clinic in Detroit against the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform, The Apologetics Groups and others.
The abortion business had created the video to carry to potential customers “the message … that abortion is not uncommon, and that women are good regardless of how they exercise their reproductive rights.” …
Then, however, TAG and others created parodies that revealed the true horrors of abortion, utilizing the feel-good tenor of the abortionist’s video and inserting “graphic, up-close images of the surgical procedure of dismembering and removing fetuses, many of which have discernible limbs or appear to be nearly viable,” the judge said.
“The TAG video closes with Northland’s name, telephone number, and the words ‘Your Dead baby at 10 to 12 weeks,’ superimposed over a bloody, dismembered fetus,” he said.
