SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 15, 2019 /Christian Newswire
/ -- The powerful story of Abby Johnson's time at Planned Parenthood, rising through the ranks from volunteer to clinic director, told in the bestselling Ignatius Press edition, UNPLANNED, is being re-released with new additions to coincide with the major motion picture of the same name slated to hit theaters in March 2019.
Johnson was an ardent supporter of abortion rights for women. Yet, her heart was radically changed when she assisted in an ultrasound-guided abortion of a 13-week fetus. She walked out of Planned Parenthood and almost immediately became a national media sensation.
From the directors of God's Not Dead and the producers of I Can Only Imagine comes the true story of Johnson in UNPLANNED, which will be released in theaters nationwide March 2019. The new edition of the book, updated with the movie poster as its cover, includes a new preface and epilogue covering the founding of Johnson's ministry, And Then There Were None, and the closing of the abortion clinic where she worked. UNPLANNED reveals the impact Johnson's story has had in the most surprising places.
Johnson will be a featured speaker at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. (Jan. 18, 2019), OneLife LA (Jan. 19, 2019) and the Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco (Jan. 26, 2019).
"Abby Johnson's journey from Planned Parenthood insider to pro-life activist is a powerful witness to the tireless efforts and prayers of those working on the frontlines in this culture of death so prevalent in our world today," said Teresa Tomeo, syndicated Catholic radio talk show host and columnist.
