Unplanned is the inspiring true story of one woman’s journey of transformation.
All Abby Johnson ever wanted to do was help women. As one of the youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors in the nation, she was involved in upwards of 22,000 abortions and counseled countless women about their reproductive choices. Her passion surrounding a woman’s right to choose even led her to become a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, fighting to enact legislation for the cause she so deeply believed in.
Until the day she saw something that changed everything, leading Abby Johnson to join her former enemies at 40 Days For Life, and become one of the most ardent pro-life speakers in America.
Unplanned is the most important movie you will ever see on the most controversial issue of our time. No matter which side of the fence you are on, no one will leave this film unmoved.

To see the truth of abortion unfold through Abby Johnson’s story brought tears of sadness but also tears of joy. Excellently produced and personally clear in its two-fold message—the horror of abortion and its ripple impact on women—and yet the power of persistence in prayer shone through. God’s discouraged people kept their faces before Him without seeing any fruit for their cries to the heavens. But God kept track of their tears, and in a surprising turn of events, the narrative changed, showing how great is our God in response to our daily perseverance at the throne. I recommend everyone see this movie and let it touch you in the way that God chooses.

We saw this yesterday in Whitby.
To think that our government wanted to prevent Canadians from seeing this is the scariest part. Truly. The screen writing, acting, relevance, music and cinematography are all excellent. Top drawer.
So only the message could be in question. In a healthy, truly progressive Canada, would one not think a message promoting the protection of the most vulnerable little ones in our society would be applauded?
More than anything, the message of women’s rights boomed through to me loud and clear - the right of young, frightened, desperate girls to be given truth, help, assurance, comfort and love in a time when they feel the most lost, alone, unprepared and vulnerable.
Another resounding message was the incredible issue of the multi-billion dollar industry abortion has become - with our precious young moms as lucrative commodities to be exploited.
Dr. Henry Morgantaler lived close to me in Montreal when the issue of abortion was starting. He lived in a little old bungalow that we used to drive by. I remember always feeling horrified by his flagrant thumbing of the nose at the law protecting babies in the womb. It always felt like driving by the house of a mass murderer.
How did Morgantaler become an iconic hero to masses of men and women today? By his masterful ability to manipulate minds from right to wrong, from truth to lies, from good to evil - and his own circumstances from humble to mega luxury.
Yes girls had dangerous abortions pre-Morgantaler, but in all my university years of living in residence in the 60’s, we only ever knew of two. TWO!! Now that there’s no law against it, those numbers have outnumbered all the car accidents, military deaths and deaths from disease.
It’s amazing how respect for the law, truth and general alignment with good could have prevented millions of moms from spending their lives missing their kids - the ones Morgantaler tricked them into sacrificing on the altar of his greed and evil.
