Plan To See "Unplanned"

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 10, 2019

         “UNPLANNED,” THE FILM ABOUT FORMER PLANNED PARENTHOOD DIRECTOR ABBY JOHNSON AND HER CONVERSION TO PRO-LIFE ADVOCATE MAINTAINED ITS TOP TEN POSITION IN THE SECOND WEEK AFTER ITS RELEASE. IT FINISHED NUMBER EIGHT AND WORD OF MOUTH IS SPREADING.

         GO SEE THIS FILM. TAKE AN OLDER CHILD WITH YOU, BUT KEEP THE YOUNGER ONES AWAY. THERE ARE SOME SCENES DEPICTING AN ACTUAL ABORTION. THOUGH IT IS STAGED, IT COMES AS CLOSE TO THE REAL THING AS I HAVE SEEN. JOHNSON IS CALLED IN TO ASSIST THE ABORTIONIST. SHE HAS NEVER SEEN THE PROCEDURE, DESPITE HER LONG AFFILIATION WITH THE ORGANIZATION. WHEN SHE SEES IT SHE IS DISGUSTED AND RUNS FROM THE ROOM, WEEPING.

         THE DEPICTION OF PRO-LIFE PEOPLE OUTSIDE THE PLANNED PARENTHOOD OFFICE, PRAYING FOR THE WOMEN, TURNING SOME AND EVENTUALLY REACHING JOHNSON’S HEART IS ACCURATE AND COMPELLING.

         TAKE SOMEONE TO SEE THIS FILM, PREFERABLY SOMEONE WHO THINKS THEY ARE PRO-CHOICE BUT HAS NEVER THOUGHT IT THROUGH. ENCOURAGE PRO-LIFERS TO SEE IT AND SPREAD THE WORD TO OTHERS. THIS IS WHAT THE PRO-ABORTIONISTS DON’T WANT WOMEN TO SEE. THEY LIE TO WOMEN AND THEN ABANDON THEM TO SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES OF A DECISION THEY ARE OFTEN PRESSURED TO MAKE. I’M CAL THOMAS.
