Unplanned - review and giveaway

Unplanned is a documentary film telling the story of Abby Johnson who was formerly director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas. She worked there for 8 years, sincerely believing she was helping women. Over the years, she interacted with some of the pro-life protesters "on the other side of the fence" and eventually was convicted that abortion really was wrong the first time she witnessed an ultrasound assisted abortion. She made a decision that day that she could not continue working for Planned Parenthood. She courageously resigned her job, and began helping the same pro-life group she had talked with previously. The film includes interviews with Abby herself, her husband and parents, as well as many of the pro-life activists who had protested outside the clinic where Abby worked. I was very impressed with the spirit of love and gentleness they portrayed to the abortion clinic workers, as well as the patients. It is a fascinating story. Here's a short preview:
