Ironically, the Motion Picture Association, by giving Unplanned an R Rating is acknowledging what something that many in our society attempt to deny. Namely, every abortion is a gruesome, tragic act of violence done both to the baby and mother. Another irony of the R rating is that a 16 year old girl cannot see this film without being accompanied by herparent, but in many states, but that same 16 year old can procure an abortion without her parents ever knowing. ---Archbishop Naumann.
