Pro-life film ‘Unplanned’ gets surprise R-rating

On March 29, a film looking at the the abortion industry opens in theaters.

“Unplanned” tells the story of Abby Johnson, who was a Planned Parenthood director who oversaw close to 22,000 abortions. However, during one particular procedure, Johnson witnessed something so horrific that changed her outlook on abortion.

She has since become avid pro-life advocate.

Recently, the Motion Picture Association of America handed out their rating for the film and it was a surprise to many. The pro-life film was given an R-rating.

However, the film didn’t receive the rating for the usual content issues such as language, violence or nudity. Instead, it’s due to a series of graphic, bloody images. 

The filmmakers were not pleased with their assigned rating, however, they say they will not appeal. 

“We consider the MPAA’s current standards to be deeply flawed, insofar as they allow scenes of remarkably graphic sex, violence, degradation, murder and mayhem to have a PG-13 rating, whereas our film, highlighting the grave dangers of abortion in a straightforward manner, is considered dangerous for the American people to view.”
