Pro-Life Film ‘Unplanned’ Lands Distribution Deal in Canada

Unplanned is going to Canada. The controversial pro-life movie landed a distribution deal with the independent distributor Cinedicom with showings beginning on July 12.

As it did in AmericaUnplanned faced several roadblocks in its distribution. As previously reported by Christian Headlines, it was banned in Canada when several major film distributors refused it in May of this year.

But, Canadian pro-life advocates rallied with a petition and national boycott of Cineplex, a major movie theater, to bring the film to the big screen.

Unplanned was released in the US on March 29th, 2019. However, if you live in Canada, you will not be able to view this new film,” the petition, which has garnered over 200,000 signatures, stated. “It appears that the ‘controversial’ nature of this film is impacting its release. There are no public screenings scheduled anywhere across the nation. We aim to change that. We want to see this film shown on movie screens all across Canada – and around the world.”

Cineplex has yet to agree to screenings, explaining that the film lacked a distributor. But, Unplanned producers suspect it’s because of the strong pro-life message.

Unplanned has had a profound effect on the abortion industry. So far, nearly 100 abortion clinic workers have left their employment after watching the movie. The film focuses on Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood executive who radically changed her life after witnessing an abortion.
