Watch the Preview for the Powerful, Upcoming Pro-Life Movie 'Unplanned' and Meet the Real-Life Heroes of the Film

Josh Shepherd : Jan 18, 2019  The Stream

"A lot of people don't want to talk about it. Hopefully, with a story as great as this, we can open up a dialogue. Even if they're coming to rag on the movie, we can bring these events to life accurately and hopefully move them to a place of being open-minded." -Jared Lotz, actor portraying Shawn Carney of 40 Days for Life

[] On Friday, Believe Entertainment released a half-hour preview of the dramatic feature film "Unplanned" and announced its theatrical release for March 29. Based on real-life events, the $6 million independent film recounts the conversion of former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson to abortion industry whistleblower and now pro-life leader. A two-minute trailer for the film is expected online soon. (Screengrab image: Believe Entertainment/ via YouTube)
