Review and Giveaway: Unplanned DVD

Unplanned is a documentary that follows the life journey of Abby Johnson from her happy childhood in a Christian home, her wrong path in college that included two abortions, her desire to help women in crisis leading to a career choice disapproved by her parents and husband, her promotion to being the director of a local Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas, her "light-bulb moment" during an ultrasound-guided abortion procedure, to her becoming a major advocate for life and truly helping women in crisis. You will hear the interviews from Abby, her parents, several staff from the Coalition for Life, and more. The DVD (60 minutes long) captivated my attention the whole time. At one point, I was in tears. My family and I are passionately pro-life. I highly recommend this DVD. It beautifully depicts God's awesome power of transformation. He changes lives. He saves lives. Abby Johnson was blind but now she sees; she crossed over from death to life. Praise God that He is using Abby to be a voice for the voiceless and a defender for the defenseless! She knows what it's like to be on the other side of the fence and what really is going on inside Planned Parenthood. You wouldn't believe what Planned Parenthood did to her after she quit. Please pray that women with unplanned pregnancies will no longer be deceived by lies from Planned Parenthood and pro-choice supporters.

Note: Please turn off my music playlist at the bottom of this page before starting the trailer.

I would love to have a copy of this DVD. I directed a Crisis Pregnancy Center in TN for a couple of years before our move to FL.

Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy!

I just "liked" Christ Alone on Facebook!!

Just watched your daughter's video and I think she did a really good job. I liked how rather than just having the text on the video, she actually read the text...I think that will make a double impact both seeing the text and hearing it! Good job to your daughter!!

Saw your link on FB. I would like to win a copy of this DVD because, not only am I pro-life and my mother helps run a Crisis Pregnancy Center, but I admire what Abby has done and the work God is doing with & through her. Thank you for offering this.

I would love to see this DVD. I just heard her speak at the 40 Days for Life webcast last night. I pray for these awesome warriors on the frontlines.

What a wonderful thing to give away!

I'd love this DVD because the inner workings of Planned Parenthood intrigues me.

I rated your book. If you have time, would you mind rating mine?

I would LOVE to win this! I have admired her decision to leave PP and to speak out against them. I was a teen mom and I am going to be working with our youth next year. I'd love to be able to share this story with them! So inspiring!

I would like to win this video as I think it would be a real eye opener to many people, I have friends who have been hurt by planned parenthood as well. vickismail77 at yahoo.com

I watched your daughters video and hope her message reaches many young women, that more will stop putting trust in this organization and reconsider their faith.
