Sometimes events and decisions in our lives are not understood until a later day. We arrive at decisions that might be changed once more is learned. In the DVD, Unplanned: The Dramatic True Story of a Former Planned Parenthood Leaders' Eye-Opening Journey on DVD by Abby Johnson and Cindy Lambert, it tells a true story how a high ranking local ex-Planned Parenthood leader starts out on a crusade to help fellow women without fully understanding the whole picture. It chronicles the day to day life of this one woman, Abby Johnson and how she started out with the Planned Parenthood agency to the point where she realized she was in the wrong field.
The story provides glimpses into Abby's family and her strong Christian upbringing, her personal life and decisions that would shape her decisions as she progresses through life. It also provides an inside look into pro-life groups and their mission and process. The story eventually unfolds to her unexpected participation in an abortion that shifted her entire life afterwards. It's a great story and informative as it provides both sides of the abortion debate from an ex-Planned Parenthood employee to volunteers and employees from Coalition for Life. I already had researched methods of abortion so the details were not as shocking as it might be to someone who truly does not understand what an abortion entails. Being pro-life, I think it's a great documentary for anyone to watch. What I liked the most about this story is the respect that the Coalition for Life volunteers had for Abby when she was a Planned Parenthood employee.
