Abortion, according to Hollywood, is “an act of violence.”
That’s the conclusion of the makers of “Unplanned” after the MPAA, the Motion Picture Association of America, gave their movie an “R” rating.
The MPAA, noted directors Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman, issued no caution for profanity, nudity, sex or violence, “except for violence directly associated with the abortion process.”
The restricted rating was for “some disturbing/bloody images.”
“Ironically, the MPAA seems to be indirectly endorsing the pro-life position: namely that abortion is an act of violence,” the filmmakers said.
“Even more ironically, as a result of the MPAA’s decision to give us a ‘Restricted’ rating, many teenage women in this country who can legally obtain an actual abortion without parental permission will be prohibited from going to see our film containing simulated images of abortion, without obtaining parental permission.”
The movie tells the story of Planned Parenthood clinic director-turned-pro-life-activist Abby Johnson.
The makers of the movie also produced “God’s Not Dead” and “I Can Only Imagine,” which earned nearly $150 million combined.
Johnson said the intent of the film is to portray the abortion industry accurately.
“We are pushing the boundaries of what has never been before on such a wide scale by showing America exactly what abortion is – and abortion is disturbing. It’s violent,” she said.
“No one will walk away from seeing this movie and say ‘I didn’t know.'”
The movie makers recently thanked President Trump for his pro-life policies in an introduction to the trailer.
“Thank you, Mr. President, for making America great again,” says Solomon.
“And together let’s make it safe for the unborn,” Konzelman adds.
They cited the president’s decision to stand for pro-life efforts, reinstate the Mexico City policy, pick a pro-life vice president, speak at the March for Life and nominate pro-life judges and Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
The story is so hot the creators had to use fake names for the movie during some of their location shoots.
In their attempt to license songs for the movie, they were turned down nine of 10 times.
Lindell invested some $1 million in the film.
“I’m pro-life and I’m happy to do it,” he said.
“I knew from the very beginning, they warned me, they said, ‘You’re probably gonna get blacklisted. This could end your career.’ I said, ‘I don’t care. It’s worth it,'” she told Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt.
