Unplanned DVD Review & Giveaway

~~~THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED~~~

About Unplanned
Description from website.

The true story of how Abby Johnson went from Planned Parenthood clinic director to leading voice for life and women in crisis.

Abby Johnson made a courageous decision when she walked away from her job as the director of a key Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas and walked into the office of the Coalition for Life down the street. Yet that turning point was preceded by years of searching—and a moment of pure awakening.

Little did she know that her one decision would turn into a national news story or that she’d immediately go from being a leader for Planned Parenthood to being a very public figure in the right-to-life debate.

Now in Unplanned, the documentary based on her sensational book of the same title, Abby takes you back to the Planned Parenthood clinic where she worked for years as a pro-choice advocate. You’ll hear directly from Abby how a few moments in a room of that same clinic changed her perspective, and her life, forever.
In this intriguing and inspirational story, you’ll follow Abby on a journey into her past—through her wrestling with an incredible personal dilemma and making a difficult choice—and ultimately to her current mission to fight for life and help women in crisis.

My Thoughts
I first heard about the book, Unplanned, when Tyndale announced on Facebook about the filming of a documentary and could not wait until it was released. Now I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of the Tyndale blog tour for the Unplanned DVD! As soon as I received the DVD in the mail I watched it as soon as the boys were down for their nap. I was completely amazed by Abby Johnson's story. She grew up in a Christian home that was clearly pro-life. Johnson had her first abortion at age 19 or 20 while she was in college by the suggestion of her older boyfriend. It was then that marked the turning point about her view of abortion. The next step was when she came across a Planned Parenthood booth at a function. After talking to the lady at the booth Johnson became involved in Planned Parenthood as a volunteer. Johnson describes her work as a volunteer and how her life became more involved into Planned Parenthood and what they stood for. I think the most incredible part of her story is how you can see the small instances of contact with the Coalition of Life during her work at Planned Parenthood planted small seeds for what would ultimately happen in 2009. It is awesome to see God's power and work  through Abby Johnson. Her story gives hope to all of us Christians who continue to pray and reach out to others in all aspects of our lives.
