While people threatened to boycott the Cineplex movie theaters in Canada because the pro-life film “Unplanned” was going to show there, the CEO of the Cineplex chain, Ellis Jacob, instead of backing down, issued a letter stating the chain would not capitulate, reminding the protesters, “Many of us will have to set aside our own personal beliefs and remember that living in a country that censors content, opinions and points of view because they are different from our own is not a country that any of us would want to live in.”

The Daily Wire reported in May:

“Unplanned” tells the story of famed Planned Parenthood defector Abby Johnson, who left the organization to become a pro-life activist after witnessing an abortion while working at the Bryan, Texas Planned Parenthood clinic in 2009.Released in March, the movie arguably became one of the most successful independent movies of 2019 thus far by raking in $18 million in the box office on a $6 million budget.
