Unplanned is a 2019 pro-life movie about the life of Abby Johnson, a former abortion clinic director who became a pro-life activist.

The movie exceeded box office expectations in theaters despite various factors working against it, including an "R" rating, the refusal of many media outlets to air the trailer,[1] and a temporary Twitter ban.[2] Despite being suspended by Twitter during its opening weekend, the movie's Twitter account received 80,000 more followers than Planned Parenthood.[3][4]

Distribution companies effectively banned Unplanned in Canada.[5][6]
