“UNPLANNED” tells the real-life story of Abby Johnson , a former Planned Parenthood abortion facility director who converted to the pro-life cause in 2009. The movie is currently playing at the Marcus Bay Park Cinema and the Green Bay East Cinema.
The movie is thought provoking and is rated R due to two scenes. One scene is a CGI (Computer-Generated Imagery) of an ultrasound screen during an abortion. It is a recreation of what Abby Johnson saw: a baby on an black and white 2D ultrasound screen confronted with the abortion instrument, struggling against it before it disappears into the instrument. It is the first onscreen recreation of what happens during an abortion. The second reason it receives an R rating is a scene that re-creates Abby’s experience with the abortion pill, which portrays the pain and bleeding that was involved.
Parents, judge for yourselves whether this movie is appropriate for your child(ren) to see.
