ABOUT UNPLANNED — UNPLANNED is the inspiring true story of one woman’s journey of transformation. All Abby Johnson ever wanted to do was help women. As one of the youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors in the nation, she was involved in upwards of 22,000 abortions and counseled countless women about their reproductive choices. Until the day she saw something that changed everything. UNPLANNED will be released in theaters throughout Canada on July 12, 2019. UNPLANNED was released widely in American theaters on March 29, 2019, and earned a coveted A+ CinemaScore and No. 4 ranking at the box office, grossing more than $18 million to date despite the fact that the MPAA categorized the movie with an R rating and multiple television networks and digital platforms refused to run advertisements for the film.
