Hundreds of thousands leave and shares slump as Netflix promotes abortion

Netflix has a experienced its first quarterly loss of paid subscribers in the United States in eight years at the same as as the company is actively opposing pro-life legislation in Georgia.

The video streaming giant has reported a loss of 126,000 domestic paid subscribers compared with their analysts projections of a 352,000 gain. 

The Netflix global subscriber growth also fell short of projections by over 2 million.

The dip in subscriptions came during the same quarter as Netflix’s decision to take a stance against Georgia’s pro-life “heartbeat bill.”

In May, the state of Georgia passed a Bill set to come into effect in January 2020, which will restrict abortion after a foetal heartbeat can be detected. At the time, Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, stated that Netflix will be “work[ing] with the ACLU and others to fight [the Heartbeat Bill] in court.”

It is understood that media companies have been operating in Georgia due to the tax incentives offered by the state. Disney has also threatened to boycott Georgia should its pro-life laws come into effect.

Not wanting to fund a company sponsoring a pro-abortion effort to prevent a pro-life law coming into effect, pro-life groups and individuals responded by unsubscribing from Netflix and organising a boycott of their services. Right To Life UK, also encouraged users to boycott Netflix in protest to its abortion activism with almost 10,000 people signing their name and committing to cancel their Netflix subscription.

However, Netflix itself has blamed price increases for its quarterly slump which saw its shares plunge by 10.3% last Thursday (25/07).

Netflix is not alone in its abortion advocacy. Recently, Galaxy have also been found to be sponsoring pro-abortion content online. The Galaxy advert read “Choose Pleasure” alongside an associated article “What Actually Happens When You Have An Abortion?”

Clare McCarthy from Right to Life UK said: 

“It is not possible to prove that this slump was the direct consequence of Netflix’s pro-abortion advocacy which, in turn, led to a large number of pro-life users boycotting their service. It is nevertheless a boost for pro-lifers to see the company’s profits suffering in this way, and many pro-lifers will interpret this as an effect of their action.”

“Netflix is not alone among companies attempting to cash in on abortion advocacy but hopefully this slump will prove that it is bad for business. Pro-lifers will continue to send a clear message that so long as these companies continue to attempt to block efforts to save lives, pro-life users will and should continue to boycott their services.”

Dear reader

Thanks to the support from people like you, last year a major attempt to hijack the UK Government’s flagship Domestic Abuse Bill with two extreme abortion proposals failed, in a major pro-life victory.

Unfortunately, this is not the end for our opposition.

We are currently facing major threats on five separate fronts:

  1. Pro-abortion MP Rupa Huq has brought forward an amendment to the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill to introduce a jail term of up to two years if a pro-lifer offers support or advice to a woman near an abortion clinic. This is a threat to unborn babies and to freedom of speech.
  2. The assisted suicide lobby has brought forward a bill to legalise assisted suicide, which was introduced to the House of Lords on 26 May.
  3. The Northern Ireland Secretary has given himself new powers to force expanded abortion services on Northern Ireland.
  4. The abortion lobby is further exploiting the COVID-19 crisis to attempt to make dangerous ‘DIY’ home abortions available permanently.
  5. The abortion lobby is expected to make another attempt to change abortion law to allow abortion on demand, for any reason, up to birth.

If these major threats from our opposition are successful, it would be a disaster. Thousands of lives would be lost. 

Fighting both the abortion and assisted suicide lobbies over this period has already made a huge dent in Right To Life UK's limited resources.

To cover this gap and ensure we effectively defeat these proposals during this period, we must raise at least £200,000.

We are, therefore, asking people like you to please give as generously as you can. Every donation, no matter how small, will make a significant difference.

By stopping these threats, YOU can save lives over this coming period.

Will you make a special gift right now to help protect vulnerable lives from these threats?
