This realistic film about Abby Johnson’s journey from abortion masterpiece for Planned Parenthood to Pro-Life crusader edged out “Captain Marvel” with a $5,770 per screen average this weekend.
The pro-life film, unsurprisingly, has been thrown one obstacle after another due to its exposure of Planned Parenthood and the reality of abortion. “Unplanned” was hit with a controversial R rating from the MPAA and TV networks refused the film’s ads. On Saturday, Twitter inexplicably suspended the official account for the movie, however, after swift backlash, the “error” was fixed and the account was restored.
“Unplanned” is centered around Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood executive who assisted with over 22,000 abortions before witnessing an ultra-sound-guided abortion that made her leave the industry.
“I thought I was helping women,” Johnson said in January. “But I was doing more harm than good. It wasn’t until I saw a child fight for its life that my world came crashing down and I understood the enormity of my actions. I had to leave.”
“No one will be able to walk away after seeing this movie and say, ‘I didn’t know,’” the whistleblower added.
