“Unplanned” Gets “R” Rating

The dramatization of Abby Johnson’s book Unplanned, scheduled for theatrical release in March, has been given an R rating by the MPAA, the folks who hand out ratings. That means a 16-year-old won’t be admitted to a film depicting abortion unless she brings along a parent or guardian, but she could get an abortion without parental consent (or even knowledge).

Go figure.

I think the MPAA just ensured that when the film goes to video and on-demand, it’ll get plenty of attention from the teenagers the MPAA is pathetically trying to “protect.”

From the Facebook page for the Unplanned movie: “Unplanned has received an “R-Rating” from the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) because they said there is “disturbing images” – We agree… that’s why we made a movie about it. (there is no nudity, no foul language, no gun violence no sex… so #MPAAThinksAbortionIsViolent) …”
