Theaters Cancel 'Unplanned' Showing Due to Death Threats

Due to safety concerns, two movie theaters in Canada have canceled the screening of Unplanned.

Precautions had to be taken after theater owners received death threats.

LifeSiteNews reports that the cinema owners contacted police after receiving threats they perceived as real, causing them to be "fearful for their families."

'Unplanned' chronicles Abby Johnson's eight-year career as a director at Planned Parenthood and her conversion to the pro-life movement after watching a doctor perform an abortion via ultrasound.

The film has overcome multiple obstacles, including an R-rating by the Motion Picture Association of America and having its ads banned on major television channels.

CBN News previously reported Johnson saying, "I hope this film will be a really powerful tool that people can use moving forward to show the truth of abortion and show also the powerful, redemptive nature of Christ."

"We just want people to understand that this is a very powerful tool. It's not about me," she added.

The film raked in more than $6 million and took fifth place at the box office in its opening weekend.
