"Unplanned" (movie image)A former Planned Parenthood clinic director plans to use a movie based on her life to help save others from the harmful industry.

“I think people are looking for truth. They want to see what's real,” says Abby Johnson, whose real-life transformation to a pro-life activist is portrayed in the feature film “Unplanned,” which stars Ashley Bratcher (pictured above) as Johnson.

The film, produced by Pure Flix, has enjoyed commercial success and has leaped to No. 1 in DVD sales after it was released this week.

But another purpose of the film, Johnson tells OneNewsNow, is to reach abortion workers.

While the film has publicized Johnson’s story, many are likely unaware that her mission is to reach abortion workers through her ministry, And Then There Were None, which offers Christian counseling and job placement. 

More than 500 people have been helped to date and soon a copy of the “Unplanned” DVD will be delivered to the doorstep of hundreds more.

“I really believe that many of them will find truth in it,” Johnson predicts. “So prayerfully we're really hoping that the truth that they see will prompt them to contact us and say, I want to get out, too. Can you help?”
