The Controversy Surrounding "Unplanned"
There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding the film Unplanned, set to release in Canada on July 12. The film is based on the memoir of Abby Johnson, a Planned Parenthood clinic director in Texas who became an anti-abortion speaker. Many have taken to social media to organize boycotts of Cineplex for screening the film across 14 theatres - but the controversy surrounding the film may be more complicated than it seems.
