ACTION ALERT:  Urge CDA members to see and promote movie Unplanned—please circulate to membership

FROM:           Margaret Sitte, National Legislative Chair, Catholic Daughters
DATE:            March 12, 2019

Action Requested: Please urge all members to see and promote the movie Unplanned, which opens in theaters nationwide March 29. This film tells the true story of Abby Johnson, a Planned Parenthood “Employee of the Year” who saw something that made her an ardent pro-life activist. This powerful film has the potential to turn many hearts. In order to win pro-life legislative victories in the state legislatures and Congress, people must see the humanity of the unborn. Please spread the word to your circle of friends and relatives.

The film is rated “R”, not because of violence or nudity, but because abortion is an “R” rated activity in real life. Please do not let the rating deter you from seeing the film. For more information on the rating, go to https://www.catholicworldreport.com/2019/02/22/unplanned-gets-unexpected-r-rating/

Archbishop Joseph Naumann, Chair of the USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities, said, “If you see one movie this year, see the movie UNPLANNED. I warn you, UNPLANNED is graphic and painful and, at the same time, inspiring. The movie depicts the true story of the prayers and compassion of pro-life sidewalk counselors being the human instruments that God used in bringing a former Planned Parenthood clinic director, former employee of the Year, Abby Johnson, out of the abortion clinic into the offices of 40 Days for Life. Today, Abby Johnson is devoting her talent and energy to helping others make that journey from the horror of assisting with the killing of the innocent to the joy and peace of God’s mercy and grace.”
