Abortion is one of the great evils of modern civilization. A fundamental devaluing of human life as having value or merit outside of what it contributes to society. Having an anti-abortion message is a good thing, just as having an anti-racism message is a good thing. The more films that perpetuate these messages, the better. That doesn't make Unplanned a good film, however. It doesn't absolve it of criticism for being manipulative or the veracity of its subject matter being dubious. At best, one hopes it inspires actually good films about abortion and the people who dedicate themselves to the fight against it.
