121: “Unplanned” Heroine and Star—Abby Johnson and Ashley Bratcher

121: “Unplanned” Heroine and Star—Abby Johnson and Ashley Bratcher


I was going to title this episode The Two Abbys, but that would have led to misunderstandings. It’s a two-hander featuring actress Ashley Bratcher and the woman she plays in the movie Unplanned, former Planned Parenthood Director Abby Johnson.

Unplanned came out after Gosnell and before Roe v Wade, the trio of strongly pro-life films of 2018 and 2019. Both the real life heroine Abby and the actress who brings her story to the screen thanks to co-writers Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman.  An amazing story, now in cinematic garb.


In this episode you will learn

  • How the book came about to begin with
  • Why Hollywood’s MPAA gave it a Rated R rating and why this may help the movie’s box office
  • The secret that the mother of actress Ashley Bratcher’s confessed to her after she got the role and had begin filming
  • Why this is the kind of movie that changes the game regarding the reality of abortion
  • Anecdotes galore from the set
