The unprecendented box office success of the movie about a former Planned Parenthood director turned pro-life activist has been followed up with a major win upon video release of the film.
Unplanned has topped the charts as the best-selling movie on Amazon, surpassing even the huge hit Avengers: End Game!
This is in spite of attempts to censor the movie by the largely-liberal run Hollywood.
“I think it just shows that the issue of abortion is certainly not settled in our country,” said Abby Johnson, the amazing woman whose moving story the movie tells.

Take a look at the reaction that this awesome news is getting on Twitter:
The Western Journal commented on Unplanned's huge success:
The true story of one woman’s moral journey from Planned Parenthood abortion clinic director to prominent pro-life activist, Pure Flix Entertainment’s “Unplanned” was met with unrivaled backlash from every major facet of the cultural machine from production to release.
From the film’s promotional page being randomly suspended on Twitter for a time to a largely unwarranted “R” rating from the Motion Picture Association of America, Abby Johnson’s story struck a nerve with the abortion activists in Hollywood and the Silicon Valley.
Johnson and the team behind “Unplanned” had plenty of cause to celebrate Tuesday, however, as the film skyrocketed to the top of the Amazon best-sellers list in its first day of disc and digital sale.
“It’s just really exciting,” Johnson told The Western Journal. “I think it just shows that the issue of abortion is certainly not settled in our country.”
In less than one full day on the Amazon Prime store, the film has topped out the “Best Sellers in Movies & TV” listings, surpassing even Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures’ “Avengers: Endgame” — the highest-grossing box-office film of all time, The Daily Signal reported.

“I hope this empowers pro-life people and encourages them to get out in their community and be pro-life with the people around them,” Johnson said.
Based on Johnson’s memoir of the same name, “Unplanned” saw tremendous success in its national release, ranking fourth nationwide and pulling in more than $6 million on opening weekend.
