A new anti-abortion movie called “Gates Of Hell” envisions a world where the government outlaws abortion because a group of black terrorists begins murdering abortion doctors.

Molotov Mitchell, a contributor for World Net Daily who produced the film, said in a promotion that “this film could do more damage to the abortion industry than anything we’ve seen. ‘Gates of Hell’ raises questions about Planned Parenthood’s racist history in a way that’s never been done before.”

“But best of all, it casts a vision of what a post-abortion America could look like,” he said.

Mitchell, who is white, has made a number of anti-abortion movies in the past through his production company “Illuminati Pictures.” On the official site, “Gates Of Hell” is given the tagline: “Black Power. Abortion. Terrorism. ‘Plausible Fiction.'”

The plot synopsis says:

Three years in the making, “Gates of Hell” is a documentary from the year 2016 that chronicles the crimes of a band of domestic terrorists known as the Zulu 9. Finnish filmmaker Ani Juva travels to the United States to better understand the mysterious black power assassins, the unexpected eugenics conspiracy theory that drove them to commit extreme acts of violence and how America’s political landscape was transformed overnight. Blending real history and real public figures with a fictitious (yet plausible) future, it is safe to say that you have never seen a film like “Gates of Hell”.

Here’s the trailer, via Right Wing Watch:

The idea of “abortion-as-black-genocide” is popular among anti-choice activists on the right, who often cite Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s support for eugenics as proof that modern day Planned Parenthood is bent on eliminating “undesirables.”

As Ashley Lopez of the Florida Independent reports: “As of now, the film’s distribution plan includes a tour of 20 American cities. According to WorldNetDaily, ‘a deadline of Aug. 4 has been set to raise the $100,000. If all the funds do not come in by then, the accounts of those pledging support will not be charged.'”

A Republican candidate for New Jersey state Senate has also gotten into the anti-abortion flick game, recently producing a psychological thriller that follows three pregnant women, who intend to have abortions, as they are kidnapped and forced to carry their pregnancies to term.
