Do you think maybe Dems will regret tilting even MORE extreme into the Abortion cause?
Ever since Kavanaugh’s nomination, the Democrats have gotten nervous about their beloved Abortion laws and consequently, Blue States like New York and Vermont have gotten aggressively more radical. Virginia dumped millions (yes, plural) into the campaign of disgraced Blackface/KKK Governor Northam.
But is there a public appetite for MORE radical abortion laws?
If the success of this pro-life flick is any indication… the answer is ‘no’.
“Unplanned,” a movie about an abortion clinic director who left her job at Planned Parenthood, is the No. 1 DVD in Amazon sales after surpassing expectations in movie theaters.
“You know, without being trite, I think the people have spoken,” Cary Solomon, who directed the movie with Chuck Konzelman, told The Daily Signal in a phone interview Tuesday.
“Unplanned” tells the true story of Abby Johnson, a Planned Parenthood clinic director who quit her job with the nation’s largest abortion provider in 2009 after having a conversion experience regarding the procedure.
The movie, which stars Ashley Bratcher as Johnson, grossed $19 million in theaters over 19 weeks, according to Box Office Mojo.
…Solomon said he read that the makers of the average movie are happy with sales of 20,000 to 30,000 DVDs, but that “we presold about 235,000 without even telling anyone it was out there.”
“What does that say?” Solomon asked. “It says that we have a nation that is hungry for stories about life, but not only that [but for] true stories that reveal the truth.”
It’s not like this movie success was straightforward, either. They were actively opposed and messed with by Big Tech suppression, by difficulties in the ratings, and even death threats to the theaters showing the film.
Despite all that, it saw success in theaters and now, we’re seeing success in physical sales, too.

Having seen the flick myself, I can attest they did a really good job of telling a real-life story, rather than falling into the easy trap of formulaic preaching.
The people and their motivations are a lot more complex, nuanced and realistic than you might expect. The ‘good guy/bad guy’ dichotomy isn’t as forced as it so often is in movies of the genre.
Here was their road to get here:
There was another one like it worth watching too:
