According to Chuck Konzelman, the writer and director of the popular new pro-life movie “Unplanned,” nearly one hundred abortion clinic workers have asked him for advice on how to leave their jobs, after having seen the film.
“The number of actual workers who have reached out is 94,” said Konzelman, noting that the former workers “have decided to change their lives” as well as “what they do for a living.”
The film, which was released in late March, has seen unexpected success, despite having been initially faced with allegations of censorship coming from the traditionally left-leaning media.
From The Blaze:
Chuck Konzelman, writer and director of “Unplanned,” a film about Planned Parenthood clinic director-turned pro-life advocate Abby Johnson, revealed Wednesday during a congressional testimony that 94 clinic workers have come forward after watching the movie to seek help leaving their jobs.
Konzelman, who spoke before the Senate Subcommittee on the Constitution, revealed that, since the film’s release on March 29, these workers approached Johnson’s nonprofit, And Then There Were None, and have indicated an intent to change their lives.
And Then There Were None’s stated mission is to “help abortion clinic workers leave the abortion industry.”
“The number of actual workers who have reached out is 94,” Konzelman revealed, estimating that this accounts for about 1 percent of abortion workers in the U.S.
“One percent of the abortion workers in the United States, after getting one look at them being portrayed on film … have decided to change their lives … and what they do for a living,” Konzelman said.
The filmmaker also noted that this is evidence that “Unplanned” isn’t portraying these people as monsters. Instead, some workers appear to find something redeeming about the movie, and are taking personal action as a result.
