 Abby Johnson thought she was helping women in crisis. She was about to learn the truth . . . and facing the secrets of her own painful past would be the toughest truth of all. In this documentary based on the book Unplanned, learn how Abby Johnson went from Planned Parenthood clinic director to leading voice for life and women in crisis.

MY Review -

When I saw this DVD was available for review, I jumped on the opportunity to watch it. I already knew a little bit about Mrs. Johnson; her leaving Planned Parenthood was all over the news. It was kind of strange to see some of those newscasts in the documentary. 

As a documentary, this is a great documentary. It got my attention and held it from the opening scene to the last. 

What Abby went through to get to the truth is heart-wrenching. Yet we all have to come face to face with truth some day. What Planned Parenthood was and is doing needed to be brought in the light. Abby Johnson had to face what was really happening there in order to face the truth and become the spokeswoman God has called her to be.

After seeing what an unborn child goes through during an abortion, Abby eyes and heart are wide open. Remembering the kindness of a young lady who use to come and pray at the clinic Abby worked at, she contacted the group the young lady was with. From that point on, Abby's life wouldn't be the same.
