Kickstarter Rejects Second Pro-Life Movie After Banning Kermit Gosnell Film

Crowdfunding web site Kickstarter has rejected a second pro-life movie after prohibiting the producers of the upcoming Kermit Gosnell film from using it to raise funds for their movie.
As LifeNews reported, although crowdfunded site Kickstarter refused the makers of the new Gosnell movie permission to fundraise, the same company hosted the recent “After Tiller” late-term abortionist documentary. With another pro-life film getting the boot, it appears Kickstarter has a clear pro-abortion bias — causing some pro-life people to say they will not fund any projects on the web site until it stops discriminating against pro-lifers.
Katie Pavlich of TownHall has more on the second pro-life movie getting the short end of the stick from Kickstarter:
But it seems the Gosnell Movie isn’t the only pro-life project either rejected or censored by Kickstarter. Just a few short days after McElhiney and McAleer moved their film to Indiegogo, another pro-life project was rejected by the company. The project, created by activist Jason Vaughn, is called Stolen Moments.
It’s a simple idea. Everyone has a story to tell. Our stories are made of a special moments throughout our lives. Stories come from both the good and bad moments. Yet, due to abortion we’ve lost millions of potential moments in our lives. Moments that would be part of our story. Moments that were stolen from all of us.
We want to share through a series of short videos some of those moments we’re all missing because of abortion. It’s an idea I’ve fallen in love with and I think once you see what God has laid on our heart to create you will as well.
It’s thrilling to be at the point where we have a great crew assembled and to be ready to raise the funds. We were all set to launch and then got this upsetting news.
I love Kickstarter. If you look at my profile then you’ll see I’ve backed over two dozen campaigns in the last couple of years. They pioneered crowdfunding.
There are two great campaigns I’m promoting right now for some great friends. (Polycarp and Red, White, Blue, & Green)
*Update: Red, White, Blue, & Green has ended their Kickstarter to stand in solidarity with StolenMomentsCampaign.com

What worries me though is not only can I not understand their reasoning for rejecting Stolen Moments, but they also happened to reject another film that has some talk about abortion in it. I’m hesitant to call it a pro-life film because I don’t think the creators would consider it as such.
The team that did FrackNation is looking to make a documentary on the abortionist and serial killer, Kermit Gosnell. For those that haven’t heard about Kermit Gosnell it isn’t really a surprise. He slaughtered thousands of born babies after they were born. This is a story that needs to be told and deserves your support.
Apparently you’re allowed to discuss incest and porn, but Kickstarter isn’t a fan of people telling the true story about babies being ripped apart after birth.
