Unplanned - DVD Giveaway and Review

How would you convince someone that their decision that they are about to make is the wrong one? Would you just come straight out and tell them or would you support them in love and pray for the best being their friend no matter what?

Abby Johnson lived through what most women would consider the hardest decision they would have to make in their life. When she was attending A & M college, she learned she was pregnant. She was in shock. Her current boyfriend at the time remained completely calm and advised her that she should get an abortion. He had seen many girls go through them and it seemed like the best choice.

Not knowing what to do, Abby went along with the decision. There was no one at the clinic that would advise her of other options other than the one she came there to complete. Through her college years Abby would become involved with Planned Parenthood as an organizational volunteer to assist women in and out of the clinics where abortions would be performed. Thinking she was assisting these women in the best possible way, she didn't realize and was misguided in her actions.

Abby would later become the director of a Planned Parenthood clinic and during one procedure, Abby would learn the truth about what really happens to the babies during the process of abortion. What she learned there led her to create this compelling testimony of how a heart can be changed through love and grace.

In the DVD, Unplanned by Focus on The Family along with Tyndale House Publishers, you see Abby's story in her own words from start to finish. The message is clear and one that every single Christian should watch. If you ever wondered how people could work at clinics conducting abortions and live with their results, or how to reach the millions of misguided people working for the clinics or considering abortion as a alternative to giving birth, you need to watch this DVD.

Being like Abby, myself, at age 17, I had an abortion. A decision I would later regret for my entire life after the procedure. I had no one there to consul me before hand or even offer alternatives, nor did I have friends or family to support me during that time. Knowing that even despite my personal decision to have an abortion and walking through life with that guilt I still no that no matter what I will remain a Pro-Life supporter. I can speak from experience as someone who knows what its like. I can offer them hope and other options other than an abortion. This is how God uses for good what the enemy would use for bad. God redeems and He forgives.

I received this DVD compliments of Tyndale House Publishers and Focus On The Family for my honest review and have to say, it should be viewed by every single teen in America. If only more truth were revealed in options when it comes to unplanned pregnancy like this DVD offers, perhaps more lives would be saved! This one rates a 5 out of 5 stars!!
