A lot of conservatives may now be angry because the MPAA, which is responsible for handing out movie ratings, has given Unplanned an R rating. They may worry that this rating will prevent the young people who most need to see this film’s message from getting that chance, and wonder if that was the agenda behind that decision.
However, the makers of the film aren’t appealing their “R” rating, and I agree with them. Why?
Because abortion is horrific. This rating, intentionally or not, acknowledges this fact.
But isn’t it ironic? According to liberal Hollywood, you must be 17 years of age or older to watch an abortion in a movie — but in many states, you can have one at any age — without even needing parental consent.
