Bring 'Unplanned' to Canada
"Unplanned" is a powerful new blockbuster film that chronicles the life of Abby Johnson, a former abortion clinic director whose life and career were turned upside-down by what she saw one day in her clinic.
"'Unplanned' is my story, and you can't unsee it." - Abby Johnson
This is a powerful and eye-opening film that has been piercing through the abortion narrative in the United States. "Unplanned" has actively moved individuals to the pro-life perspective. Most notably, in the first two weeks of the movie release, 94 Planned Parenthood workers have contacted Abby Johnson's organization, And Then There Were None. Also, "Unplanned" brought in over $6 million US in its opening weekend, far exceeding Hollywood expectations.
"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. 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.
To achieve our goal...
- We need you to sign and share our petition.
- By signing our petition, an email will be sent to Cineplex to tell them you are interested in seeing this movie and want it to come to Canada.
- Lastly, we ask you to donate. We believe this film is so vitally important, we want to provide some free screenings across the country. This will demonstrate the strength of our support to Cineplex. If Cineplex refuses to show "Unplanned", funds raised will be used to purchase screenings in other venues. We will not take 'no' for an answer - one way or another, we will find a way to bring this movie to Canadians. Lives depend on it. Will you help us?
Canada is one of 3 countries in the world with no abortion law. On top of this devastating reality, the pro-life message is regularly censored in many areas of society. It is imperative we join together as one movement and one voice to defend the lives of pre-born children and to let their stories be told. "Unplanned" is a transformative tool that will save the lives of Canadian pre-born children. It will guard parents and potential parents from the enormous emotional and physical toll of abortion. We need to show our culture that we care, in order to make this happen.
That's why we are asking everyone to click on our petition to ask Cineplex to show "Unplanned" in Canada.
If this is your first pro-life action, we encourage you to take a stand with us financially and educationally. This movie will change your life and lives of those around you.

National Campus Life Network and CitizenGO are merely the facilitators of this campaign and fund. We believe Canadians need to see abortion. As such, the funds raised will strictly be used for aiding in efforts to screen 'Unplanned' across Canada. We are part of a larger Canadian pro-life movement and are facilitating this fund on behalf of the movement to enable the dissemination of this message to the wider public across our country. Viewings, etc. will be decided upon in the coming months through the advice of our American counterparts and partners. Thank you.
If you are a pro-life organization interested in partnering in the facilitation of this national campaign, please contact us directly at the email below. Or, if you have any questions.
