Focus on the Family in association with Tyndale House Publishers and Franklin Films brings us unPLANNED, the documentary on Abby Johnson

When you watch this documentary the first thing you might experience is that this is captivating.  My wife were going to watch the DVD like we watch everything else, doing other little chores, but we found we could not while this DVD was playing.

Abby Johnson came from a good Christian home with a loving environment and everything was fine until she went to college.  There she met an older man who got her pregnant and, when told, drove her to get an abortion.  Time passed and Abby got pregnant again and, again, she had an abortion.  She was drawn to the Planned Parenthood Clinics where she worked as a volunteer.  It was there that she met volunteers for the Coalition For Life.  Abby eventually went to work for Planned Parenthood and moved up the corporate ladder until she was in charge of the office.  One day she was asked to help with the ultrasound and while she was watching the picture of the baby on the monitor the doctor did his procedure and she witnessed the baby die.  That was on a Saturday on Monday she drove out of the Planned Parenthood parking lot and over to the Coalition For Life parking lot where she began her new work.

This DVD documents the life of this young woman and her experiences with both sides of the fence.  Hearing the story from both sides is thought provoking and life challenging.  If you haven’t already made a decision as to what side of the fence you are on this DVD will help you make it.

Life is full of decisions, and every decision we make has an echo that affects our future.

The Unite for LIFE webcast is a free webcast featuring Abby Johnson that will benefit pregnancy care organizations. You can sign up to participate on May 17 at 8:00 p.m. (in all time zones) at www.uniteforlifewebcast.org.
