What she saw changed everything…

Unplanned tells the story of Johnson’s eight-year career at Planned Parenthood and ultimate decision to leave, also detailed in Johnson’s 2011 book of the same title. The film shows Johnson beginning as a volunteer at Planned Parenthood as a college student. As she works her way up to clinic director, she witnesses callous and dangerous treatment of patients – one young woman is left sitting in a recovery room, bleeding into her socks, until Johnson intervenes.
