An unavoidable truth gets 'unplanned' awakening


April 11, 2019

Despite the liberal media’s best efforts, the pro-life movie, “Unplanned,” had a surprisingly successful opening weekend coming in #4 behind big budget block buster films. From the team that produced “God’s not dead,” Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman wrote and directed this intensely compelling movie about the true story of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic director who has a gruesome heart wrenching epiphany to become an ardent pro-life activist.

This is a powerful movie liberals do NOT want anyone to see. Because if anyone ever actually sees the brutal reality of abortion, it’s virtually impossible to repeat the inane absurdities that murdering unborn children is somehow vital to “reproductive health” or maintain a willful ignorance of infanticide. Unless you have no soul.

Hollywood worked overtime to quash this movie. The film industry gave “Unplanned” with no nudity or sex an inexplicably tenuous R Rating to suppress access. Perhaps they realized cutting up and vacuuming up live babies is horrifically violent and in truth more scary than any horror movie. Film critics piled on lambasting the film as awful and nothing more than right wing propaganda. But their misplaced venom and misinformation only belies their absolute fear of the truth. Besides, average folks tend to love the movies critics loathe.

It’s a wonder anyone knew “Unplanned” was opening because television networks refused to take any advertising. Twitter mysteriously deleted the movie’s twitter account right before it opened. Since restored, Twitter claims it was a technical problem. Does anyone believe the conservative shadow banning social media was not part of the effort to silence this movie? More proof it must be a really good movie.

“Unplanned” is the real life story of a Texas woman, Abby Johnson, who became the youngest director of an abortion clinic and a rising star at Planned Parenthood. Johnson only ever wanted to help women and she genuinely believed she was helping women in dire straits by providing abortions. Like so many, she clung to the illusion she was only helping remove some unwanted “tissue” from troubled women. To her, these women were facing a life changing dilemma and she was just providing a simple solution, a final solution.

Her illusions were abruptly shattered one day when she was asked to assist an actual abortion when a nurse failed to show up for work. That day would torment her and change her life forever. She was horrified watching the ultrasound guided abortion as the unborn child squirmed and struggled for its life. The baby was pushing away the butcher’s tools and clawing at the womb walls to escape a violent death.

Johnson was mortified that she had helped murder some 22,000 unborn babies. It was a grisly spectacle she could not unsee. They were stopping a young heartbeat by hacking it apart and then cruelly sucking out the little toes, fingers, organs, and a face that would never see its mother. How could anyone, how could she condone and even facilitate such heinous evil?

If most pro-abortion Americans actually ever witnessed the prenatal carnage inflicted on tiny human beings or saw the mangled bodies and callously discarded minute body parts, they would be sick to their stomachs. They would recognize infanticide for what it is and find it impossible to support the heartless murder of unborn children.

This is why liberals are desperate to keep anyone from seeing “Unplanned,” from seeing the unvarnished morbid truth. Most liberals will adamantly refuse to see it because they intrinsically know they are not strong enough in their convictions to face the cold hard evidence of infanticide. They are cowards. They want to preserve their illusions to maintain their ostensible right to snuff out an innocent life for their self-righteous convenience.

Pro-Life folks should go see “Unplanned” to support this crusade for life, but more importantly the undecided or those hiding behind the excuse it’s a woman’s body (what about the baby’s body?) should see firsthand the evil they are acquiescing to. If any American considers themselves moral, they should seek and see the barbaric reality of abortion before taking a stance on the most important life and death issue of our time.

With over 41 million babies aborted worldwide in 2018, abortion was the leading cause of death on the planet. Some 60 million American babies have been slaughtered in the womb since Roe V Wade in 1973. Pray for an awakening to end this awful stain on humanity. Take a friend and go see “Unplanned!” If you are pro-abortion, will you take the dare?!

“What will I do when God confronts me? What will I answer when called to account? Did not he who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us both within our mothers?” Job 31:14-15
