QUICK TAKE:
Drama: With eight years under her belt working for Planned Parenthood including as a clinic director, a woman has an awakening upon witnessing an abortion in person while also learning that her company is more about making money than helping women in need.
PLOT:
Abby Johnson (ASHLEY BRATCHER) is the clinic director of a Planned Parenthood center in a small city outside of Houston where she lives with her husband, Doug (BROOKS RYAN), and their young daughter, Grace (ANDEE GRACE BURTON). When she's called back to help run the ultrasound for an abortion that's to be performed, she's shocked to see the fetus react to the suction probe before being sucked from the womb. The story then flashes back eight years to when Abby is a college student who ends up recruited to be a volunteer at that same clinic. It's run at that time by the all-business Cheryl (ROBIA SCOTT) who's used to having to deal with pro-life protestors such as Marilisa (EMMA ELLE ROBERTS) from the Coalition for Life.

Undeterred by them and having had an abortion herself there in the past before her first marriage (that ended in divorce), Abby takes a job at the clinic working as a counselor, much to the chagrin of her pro-life parents, Kathleen (ROBIN DEMARCO) and Mike (ROBERT THOMASON), and then-boyfriend Doug. Working alongside staffers Megan (MAURA CORSINI) and Taylor (LEZL GONZALES) who also become her friends, she acts as an abortion counselor, eventually drawing the attention of another anti-abortion protestor, Shawn (JARED LOTZ), who's joined by Marilisa in running the pro-life organization, 40 Days for Life.

With Abby eventually replacing Cheryl at the clinic director, she finds herself ever-increasingly doing hard sells for abortions. But when she witnesses one of them firsthand and then sees that Planned Parenthood is all about making money by performing more abortions, she has a crisis of conscience and ends up at a crossroads in her life where she must decide what to do.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Teenagers who are pro-life might show some interest, but it's unlikely many others will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For some disturbing/bloody images.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
