Unplanned DVD Review & Giveaway

Abby Johnson quit her job in October 2009. That simple act became a national news story because Abby was the director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas who, after participating in her first actual abortion procedure, walked across the road to join the Coalition for Life.

Unplanned is a heartstopping personal drama of life-and-death encounters, a courtroom battle, and spiritual transformation that speaks hope and compassion into the political controversy that surrounds this issue. Telling Abby’s story from both sides of the abortion clinic property line, this book is a must-read for anyone who cares about the life versus rights debate and helping women who face crisis pregnancies.

This is a very edge-of-your-seat movie that will grip you from the opening scene.  Everyone has their own views of abortion.  It's been a heated discussion for years and years.  We have a Planned Parenthood right here in town, and every week there are picketers outside the building.  Unplanned tells the story of Abby Johnson on her work at Planned Parenthood and while assisting in an ultrasound abortion, everything she thought she knew, she didn't.  She quits and joins the Coalition for Life.  It's her story, her journey and inspirational.

Unite for LIFE is holding a 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 Unplanned the book and the DVD will be available for purchase as a package deal and 33% of each purchase will go to crisis pregnancy centers like CareNet, the National Institute of Family & Life Advocates, and Heartbeat International.

One lucky reader will win their own copy of the Unplanned DVD
