“Distribution companies are effectively banning the film Unplanned from screening in Canadian cinemas, according to the producers of the pro-life biopic,” the pro-life news outlet LifeSiteNews reported on Monday.
“Chuck Konzelman, the film’s writer, director, and producer, told LifeSiteNews via email that at least one of the two largest Canadian film distributors said ‘content’ rather than a lack of consumer demand is the reason for banning the film.”
The film explores the story of Abby Johnson, a real-life ex-employee of Planned Parenthood who became pro-life after working for the abortion giant and “after being told the number of abortions should be doubled” in the facility she managed.
As of now, LifeSiteNews notes that the film has grossed “more than $18 million at the box office since its release in March, having been budgeted for $6 million.”
