Directed and written by Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman, based on the real-life 2011 memoir of Abby Johnson, “Unplanned” shows us how cruel and damaging abortion is, not only to the unborn babies but also to the women, the mothers.

Now, let’s listen to an excerpt from Abby Johnson’s speech given at the 2020 Republican National Convention. “My name is Abby Johnson, and I spent eight years working for Planned Parenthood. But today, I’m a pro-life activist. I truly believed I was helping women, but things drastically changed in 2009. But the tipping point came a month later, when a physician asked me to assist with an ultrasound-guided abortion. Nothing prepared me for what I saw on the screen: an unborn baby fighting back, desperate to move away from the suction. And I’ll never forget what the doctor said next, ‘Beam me up, Scotty.’ The last thing I saw was a spine twirling around in the mother’s womb before succumbing to the force of the suction.

I’ve been the perpetrator to these babies, to these women. And I now support President Trump because he has done more for the unborn than any other president. During his first month in office, he banned federal funds for global health groups that promote abortion. That same year, he overturned an Obama-Biden rule that allowed government subsidy of abortion. He appointed a record number of pro-life judges, including two Supreme Court justices. And importantly, he announced a new rule protecting the rights of health care workers objecting to abortion – many of whom I work with every day.”

Recently, Supreme Master Ching Hai addressed related questions about Texas passing a law banning abortion. “Any killing of innocents, especially babies in the womb, even it’s yours but it’s God-given. So any killing like that would bring disaster to our world, to everybody.

Most people have abortions because they don’t have other people to give them wise counsel, to support them. They were lonely and vulnerable. So in the society, in any country, we should make like a volunteer group or something for this case, so that people who get unwanted pregnancies can come to them or talk to them, even over the phone, about their problem, and get right, wise counsel. In this case, many lives will be saved, and also many guilts and consciences will be at peace.”
