Movie Review: Unplanned

Wow! This movie was powerful, quite emotional, and well done. It’s based on the true story of Abby Johnson, a woman who became one of the youngest directors of Planned Parenthood, won awards, and was involved in over 22,000 abortions. But then her world was turned upside down, and she became one of the biggest advocates and protectors of human life. This is her story, and the story of many thousands- millions- whose lives have been cut short by abortion.

Once again Planned Parenthood has been exposed for the harm they’ve done to women, our culture, and humanity. The abortion industry is a tragedy, but there is also hope and redemption, and Abby leads the way for those women in desperate situations.

I hate to describe this as a must-see movie, but it could be one of the most important films you will ever see. Over the course of time, entire groups of people have been dehumanized… some in the name of slavery, the holocaust, and now, abortion. It’s hard to believe we live in a society where the innocent do not deserve protection.

The movie has been Rated R, and I think for good reason. There is blood, and there are difficult-to-watch scenes, but it wasn’t overly graphic. I think any children who watch Unplanned should be mature enough to handle a heavy issue like this, and it would be beneficial for parents to discuss it afterwards.

Check for show-times, or take the time to watch it on DVD when it comes out.

I’ve also included a video in which Abby Johnson discusses Senate Bill 9, and I think it’s worth watching, as it’s quite revealing.
