Unplanned is The Dramatic True Story of a Former Planned Parenthood Leader’s Eye-Opening Journey across the Life Line
Unplanned is a 2019 American Christian drama film written and directed by Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon, based on the memoir of the same name by Abby Johnson. The film stars Ashley Bratcher, Brooks Ryan, Robia Scott, Jared Lotz, and Emma Elle Roberts, and follows the true story of Abby Johnson, a Planned Parenthood employee who has a life-changing experience.
The film was theatrically released in the United States by Pure Flix on March 29, 2019. The working title of the film was Redeemed, and details of its subject were kept from the public in order to minimize protests by abortion rights advocates.
Abby Johnson quit her job in October 2009. That simple act became a national news story because Abby was the director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas who, after participating in an actual abortion procedure for the first time, walked down the street to join the Coalition for Life.

Unplanned is a heart-stopping personal drama of life-and-death encounters, a courtroom battle, and spiritual transformation that speaks hope and compassion into the political controversy that surrounds the issue of abortion.
Abby Johnson is one of the youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors in the United States. She has worked at a clinic in Texas for eight years, and has become a community outreach director and media spokeswoman for the organization, even winning the Planned Parenthood Employee of the Year Award. One day she is asked to assist in an ultrasound-guided abortion at thirteen weeks gestation. After witnessing the procedure, which she finds to be gruesome, Johnson becomes an anti-abortion activist, and founds a ministry to assist former Planned Parenthood employees who turned against abortion after similar experiences.
