This past weekend, hundreds of pro-life students nationwide turned out to see the premiere of ‘Unplanned’, the amazing true story of a Planned Parenthood director turned pro-life activist. Many of them even brought a pro-choice friend with them! Thanks to them and legions of other supportive moviegoers, Unplanned exceeded opening weekend expectations, grossing over $6 million and landing in 5th place at the box office.
Students for Life leaders shared some great pictures and stories with us following the premiere. You’ll see below, but Arctic Students for Life filled an entire theater with 250 students! They said they couldn’t believe the turnout (it’s almost as if most people are pro-life but they aren’t hearing the message in pop culture enough… crazy).
And our Ohio Regional Coordinator persuaded her mother, who is pro-choice, to attend the ‘Unplanned’ showing with her. She noted the following:
I got my pro-choice mother to go. She is still pro-choice but has a greater appreciation for what we do. She never really knew until she saw the movie and it clicked for her. This film changed her heart on Planned Parenthood. She’s supported them for the past 35 years and this film changed that.
Check out some of the young moviegoers:
‘Unplanned’ is still out in theaters! Check your local listings and see this movie. It supports the most critical human rights cause of our generation, and refuels your pro-life energy tanks so you can continue the good fight. We are the Pro-Life Generation!
