There’s arguably not been a pro-life movie to date that has had as much real-life impact as “Unplanned.”
The PureFlix movie follows the story of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood Clinic Director-turned pro-life advocate. After eight years of climbing the ranks at Planned Parenthood, Johnson’s entire world came crashing down around her when she was asked to assist with an abortion of a 13-week baby. She went on to leave her job and form the nonprofit, And Then There Were None, which seeks to help abortion clinic workers leave the abortion industry.
Two weeks after its March release, Chuck Konzelman, the writer and director of “Unplanned,” appeared before the Senate Subcommittee on the Constitution and revealed that 94 abortion clinic workers have contacted Abby Johnson’s organization with the intent to leave the industry and start a new career path.
According to Konzelman, this number accounts for approximately 1 percent of abortion clinic workers in the country.
“One percent of the abortion workers in the United States, after getting one look at them being portrayed on film … have decided to change their lives … and what they do for a living,” the director proudly announced.
The movie’s timeliness couldn’t have been more perfect.
“We couldn’t have foreseen the rapid developments that are suddenly coming to a head,” Konzelman said after the movie shattered box office expectations during a time when pro-abortion laws are a hotter topic than ever. “But we serve a God who could, and did.”
Now, over a month after “Unplanned” made its debut in theatres, the movie’s impact on the abortion industry is only continuing to grow.
Johnson posted a prayer request for her nonprofit on Facebook, noting that at least one worker is leaving their job every day.
“We need your prayers at And Then There Were None – Prolife Outreach,” she wrote. “We are having literally at least one worker leave their job every single day…sometimes two a day. Please pray for our staff as we navigate this busy time. Big things are happening and we can confidently state that Unplanned has been a bigger blow to the abortion industry than we could have ever imagined! Change is coming, guys!”
The purpose of And Then There Were None is to provide spiritual, emotional, financial and legal support to anybody desiring to get out of the abortion industry. To date, the organization has helped almost 500 people transition out of their abortion clinic jobs.
“There is a lot of burnout in the abortion industry because promoting death is exhausting,” said Johnson at Focus on the Family’s “Alive from New York” event last weekend.
She confidently added:
“We will see a day when abortion in this country is unthinkable.”
