NBC/Universal's most recent slate of On Demand movies has six movies in it—and three of them are from that one super-controversial filmmaker, Kenneth Del Vecchio. The others in the slate include the Mark Wahlberg hit, TED, and the blockbuster THE BOURNE LEGACY. The three Del Vecchio's films in the NBC/Universal slate are THE LIFE ZONE, AN AFFIRMATIVE ACT, and THE GRAND THEFT... The first-ever pro-life film to come from a Hollywood filmmaker, THE LIFE ZONE has caused an onslaught of attacks against Del Vecchio by the far left, with some even threatening his life. Following is just a sample of the types of comments posted on the movie’s YouTube page (along with their usernames).
"Tell you what, why don't I come over to your house and suck out your brain with a hose while you're sleeping. Then I'll dismember your body piece by piece. Let's see whether I get charged with murder or with practicing medicine without a license. YOU are a disease. Not human." (Ovedya2006)
"The Religious Right: Where you can never have too much crazy!" (xtrastage)
"Jesus Christ someone needs to lock up Del Vecchio PSYCHO PUT HIM IN A MENTAL HOSPITAL!!!" (beepoppab)
"A good representation of the radical pro-life movement... religious nuts." (weeniemanx)
"And after he forces you to give birth, he will sew you all into a human centipede." (onehundreddollars)
"If you call abortion murder, you are scum." (HisEmptyHouse)
Del Vecchio is not swayed by the abusive commentary and threats. "I am one of those who knows that abortion is the greatest evil the world struggles with, and I'm constantly trying to do my part to educate as many people as possible about it. This means that while I am invigorating the conversation through my film, I am necessarily going to be attacked," Del Vecchio said. "My response, though, is not to take legal action – unless I actually feel that my family’s safety is in jeopardy – and that's because I believe in something else that is precious. Our First Amendment right to free speech. I will fight for people to use whatever words they want, even if they are hateful and targeted at me."
"People often equate legality with morality," Del Vecchio added. "When something is legal, people believe it is okay. They don't think any further about it, especially if the law has existed their entire lives. Hopefully, through enough proper parenting, education, and thoughtful entertainment and media presentations, people will actually think and develop thoughts of life, or change their minds.”
