Hallmark backtracks on its censorship of Unplanned
Nothing like a little bad publicity to get a business to change its mind.
After Hallmark scrubbed all mentions of the pro-life film Unplanned from a recent broadcast, pro-life advocates grew outraged. The star of Unplanned, Ashley Bratcher, first revealed that all references to the film had been removed from Hallmark's broadcast of the Movieguide Awards, even though Unplanned was nominated for awards in three categories.
"This is completely UNACCEPTABLE," she tweeted on Sunday.

Yes indeed, Doc - occasionally, very.
The main problem with IFB's is that it seems to be on the curriculum, to be brought into every convo. It's all a part of the Yee Ha theology (sorry, psychology). The technique is designed to embarrass someone into changing their thinking, without actually thinking what they're doing.
Jim, for what it is worth I believe it is more than safe to say that it is SIN against the Lord Jesus Christ to support and vote for the Democratic Party for their platform is openly Pro-Abortion Pro-LGBTQi Anti God Anti Jesus Christ and in practice Against Freedom of Speech and Conscience
Well, actually yes, Adriel Jim. I am Stevenr. SteveR was a completely different character, with: as I recall, a foul mouth and Catholic background. I am not him. I have a sarcastic mouth and an IFB background. Very different.
Jim, I think it is the expectationâ€”itâ€™s like going to a Christian college: you expect more spirituality... (And you generally get SO much less.) Because 1/3 of what Hallmark promotes is semi-Christian, they expect them to be all over it. The problem is, itâ€™s NOT Christian; itâ€™s a marketing theme.
I don't know why they're getting so worked up about Hallmark when numerous TV networks didn't want to touch this movie with a 10 ft pole.
