Abby Johnson was the director of one of the largest Planned Parenthood clinics in Texas when she made a courageous decision to walk away from her job. After 8 years with the organization, it only took witnessing one ultrasound image of an abortion procedure to change her mind about abortion. Little did Abby know this decision would catapult her story into the national spotlight; her change of heart also resulted in her becoming a very public figure in pro-life community. Unplanned, based on the book of the same name, tells Abby’s story and provides insight on her decision and her current life mission to help women.
This documentary does a great job of telling the story factually; it’s not about bashing Planned Parenthood. I enjoyed learning more about Abby’s story and her passion for helping women in crisis. I also learned a few things about the Planned Parenthood organization and how they operate; again, this information was presented in a factual manner. Watching this documentary definitely piqued my interest in this story, I’d love to read the book.
This DVD can be found at Christian Book Distributors and Barnes and Noble, as well as many other retailers.
