Why YOU Should See the Unplanned Movie

by Kellyn Roth |
April 6, 2019

Rather than do a review like a normal person, I am going to do a blog post that talks about the Unplanned film and why you should watch it.

I saw this movie last Monday, and it was FANTASTIC! We had to go to Portland to see it, and it was a fun trip … and I really enjoyed the movie.

Am I the only one who loves truth? It just makes me happy inside that this movie is actually OUT, and people can watch it! Let’s talk about why you should see it.

Why You Should See the Unplanned Movie

If you’re a pro-life activist …

The Unplanned movie will make you as sadly happy as it made me. I was so glad to see the truths about the abortion industry openly shown and preached. This movie is honest. It’s not graphic or overdramatic; it’s real and honest.

You need to see this movie.

If you’re pro-life but haven’t really thought much about it …

This movie will be an eye-opener. This issue is one no human being on the face of this planet should ignore. The murder of innocent babies as well as the effect it has on the women who get abortions is horrid, and we must stand against it.

If you’re pro-choice …

This movie is an honest story about a former Planned Parenthood clinic director. It is sensitive and truthful, and it does not pass judgement against those who have had abortions, those who perform abortions, or those who believe in abortion.

If you have had an abortion …

Abby Johnson, the focus of this movie, actually had two abortions, and she offers a beautiful perspective on recovery afterwards … as well as honesty about her situation.

If you’re involved in the abortion industry …

This movie is, again, sensitive and understanding. The main character eventually becomes the director of an abortion clinic (a branch of Planned Parenthood) although her parents and husband are pro-life. Also, there are some important things you need to see and listen to!

If you’re squeamish …

Honestly, it’s not that graphic. There’s some blood, and we all know that women are having abortions—a couple are on-screen (though nothing graphic is really shown). However, I’m of the opinion that it’s not that bad, and it’s certainly less graphic than a lot of action movies nowadays. I think that, unless you have a serious reason for not doing so, you should just toughen up a bit.

You need to see this movie.

If you’re under 17 …

Unjustly so, this movie was received an R rating (it does not at all deserve it; I can maybe see PG-13, but that’s it). That means you can’t see it in theaters if you’re under 17. I hope that someday you will be able to see it, though, because it is so important!

You need to see this movie. Though I understand it may not happen while it’s in theaters.

If it isn’t showing nearby …

Either drive (definitely worth it) or wait until it comes out on disc and BUY IT.

Additional reasons to see this movie …

  • Unplanned has unjustly received an R rating. This censorship should not be stood for.
  • Twitter has repeatedly shut down the Unplanned movie’s account, removed followers, automatically blocked followers, and refused to allow people to follow it. This censorship should not be stood for.
  • Unplanned has been blocked from advertising in many venues and kept from a lot of theaters. We need to support it.
  • Despite the fact that this is the honest account of a formerly faithful employee of Planned Parenthood, they insist that it’s full of lies and propaganda. But what reason would Abby Johnson have for lying?
  • Unplanned was carefully researched and is accurate to life. It truly is Abby Johnson’s life story, and it truly does expose the lies of Planned Parenthood.
  • Though this book features Christian characters and turns to God for some answers, it’s not overly religious, and it probably won’t offend non-Christian folks.
  • This film WILL open your eyes!

To find out more about the movie …

Visit their website or follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

This is a movie that you absolutely need to see. No ifs, ands, or buts. I won’t take any excuses short of, “I literally have seizures at the sight of blood” or “My children will starve if I pay to get in.”

See it! You won’t regret it. Even if it can’t be in theaters for whatever reason, you can buy a copy later. It’s important and worth it. DO IT!

  1. I have heard soo many good things about this movie. I haven’t seen it, but just from what I’ve read, that R rating… yeah. Everything pro-life is very near to our hearts because my little brothers were adopted from Japan, where abortions are almost unheard of, but if they’d been from America they would’ve been aborted. Instead because of their Down syndrome they were available for adoption. Sometimes it’s really sad to think of what their biological parents are missing out on…imagine if they’d never been born.
    Something that always gets me is this one quote… I can’t remember it exactly, but it’s along the lines of, what if the person who would’ve cured cancer, solved world hunger, on and on, never got the chance because they were aborted?

    1. Aww, how precious! <3 Indeed! I'm so glad that you were able to adopt them! Very awesome.

      That's so true! Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics have killed so many precious babies who could have grown up to be amazing adults!

  2. Why the same people who hate censorship are willing to sensor this is beyond me. All that to say, I wanna see Unplanned. Especially since I am one of many who know practically nothing about this.

    1. AMEN! It is SUCH an amazing movie – you 100% need to see it when you can. <3 You'll love it, I think - and hate it, but that's part of it. *cringes* It's horrible truth, but it's still truth!

  3. What also is bogus is that K-Love won’t prompt it because of its “R-rating” I honestly cannot wait to see this movie!! 🙌 This review was killer, Kellyn.

    1. *whispers* Another reason for me to not listen to K-Love … 😉 I never did in the beginning, though, haha. I hadn’t heard that! I can’t believe a Christian company wouldn’t change their rules! So sad. 🙁

      Thanks so much, Abigail!

  4. That wasn’t very nice of them to lie about this movie… BUT I WANT TO WATCH IT. Abortion is totally something that we all need to view more seriously. 🙁 I think we’ll have to buy a copy of it, though… xD

    1. Absolutely! Haha, yeah, it’s not showing very widely. 😛 Just in a couple theaters more in big cities here … it’s not good but it is how it is. 🙁 IT IS SO GOOD! And everything said about it by Planned Parenthood, etc., is so untrue!

  5. My friend actually got to see it even though she’s not seventeen yet, and I hope to see it when it comes out on DVD. Hopefully the library will have it, and if they don’t, I’ll request it so many times that they’ll have to get it.

  6. Amen! This was an awesome movie, and while not perfect, much better than most Christian movies. I got to see it with my dad (I’m 15) at a pre-screening. From what I’ve heard, it’s had a huge impact already.

    I contacted K-Love and my local radio station to request they play at least the Unplanned song, and they both ignored me… there’s so much rejection and censorship for this movie, even in Christian communities. It’s not even funny. I love what you said about seeing this movie not just in spite of it, but because of it. This movie should have the right to advertise as much as any other movie. ❤️
