The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has officially given the upcoming film UNPLANNED a Restricted rating for some “some disturbing/bloody images.”
“UNPLANNED is an ‘R’ rated film which has no MPAA cautions for profanity, nudity, sex or violence … except for violence directly associated with the abortion process. Ironically, the MPAA seems to be indirectly endorsing the Pro-Life position: namely that abortion is an act of violence,” said writers/directors Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman (GOD’S NOT DEAD).
“Even more ironically, as a result of the MPAA’s decision to give us a ‘Restricted’ rating, many teenage women in this country who can legally obtain an actual abortion without parental permission will be prohibited from going to see our film containing simulated images of abortion, without obtaining parental permission.”
“We are pushing the boundaries of what has never been before on such a wide scale by showing America exactly what abortion is – and abortion is disturbing. It’s violent,” said Abby Johnson, whose life and true story UNPLANNED is based upon. “No one will walk away from seeing this movie and say ‘I didn’t know.'”
