Unplanned in Canada, death threats

After receiving death threats, two movie theaters in Canada have cancelled showing the anti-abortion movie ‘Unplanned’. ‘Unplanned’ is the story of anti-abortion activist Abby Johnson. For eight years she was the director of a Planned Parenthood clinic but switched to a Pro-life position after seeing a doctor perform an abortion. The Abortion Rights Coalition in Canada called the movie a “dangerous piece of anti-abortion propaganda.” Last time I checked, adult consumers had a right to make value judgements themselves, whether the secular authorities, the religious authorities, or various NGOs liked it or not. Death threats are unacceptable, and so is censorship. Conservative groups don’t have a right to ban movies that Liberals like, and Liberal groups don’t have a right to ban movies that Conservatives like.
