Unplanned Advances the Abortion Debate

John Fund, National Review

The movie tells a compelling story and yet is surprisingly nuanced. It shows pro-choice activists explaining the wrenching reasons that compel women to seek abortions and the ugliness of some pro-life activists who harass women. Unplanned isn’t going to resolve the pro-life-versus-pro-choice controversy, but for people who haven’t given much thought to abortion, its costs, or its consequences, it is the perfect starting point for a genuine debate. Roe v. Wade may have arbitrarily settled the political argument, but the box-office success of Unplanned demonstrates just how much demand there is for continuing the conversation.
