The 40 film presents abortion as the most important human and civil rights issue of our time.
40 gives voice to both sides fairly and lets women speak for themselves through experience on the reasons for their
firm convictions about abortion. 40 highlights well-reasoned arguments by numerous prominent feminists
against the pro-choice position and provides heartfelt testimonies from post-abortive women and men.
Attorney Kelsey Hazzard, president of Secular Pro-Life who’s also featured in the 40 film, says you can bring
your pro-choice friends to see this movie. “Does 40 have an agenda? Well, it’s distributed by an outfit called Pro-Life Champions, so obviously
the answer is yes. But that agenda does not saddle the film with cheesy narratives nor does the film caricature pro-choicers.
And the many post-abortive women featured in the film are portrayed with great respect and compassion.”

The film presents abortion as the most important human and civil rights issue of our time. It gives voice to both sides fairly and lets women speak for themselves through experience on the reasons for their firm convictions about abortion. “40” highlights well-reasoned secular arguments against the pro-choice position and provides heartfelt testimonies from post abortive women and men. It is the most definitive film on abortion ever made.
It is neither religious nor graphic in nature.
It’s perfect for students seeking the truth about abortion.
Watch the Opening Scene
Abby Johnson has always had a fierce determination to help women in need. It was this desire that both led Abby to a career with Planned Parenthood, our nation’s largest abortion provider, and caused her to flee the organization and become an outspoken advocate for the pro-life movement. During her eight years with Planned Parenthood, Abby quickly rose in the organization’s ranks and became a clinic director. She was increasingly disturbed by what she witnessed. Abortion was a product Planned Parenthood was selling, not an unfortunate necessity that they fought to decrease. Still, Abby loved the women that entered her clinic and her fellow workers. Despite a growing unrest within her, she stayed on and strove to serve women in crisis.
All of that changed on September 26, 2009 when Abby was asked to assist with an ultrasound-guided abortion. She watched in horror as a 13 week baby fought, and ultimately lost, its life at the hand of the abortionist. At that moment, the full realization of what abortion was and what she had dedicated her life to washed over Abby and a dramatic transformation took place. Desperate and confused, Abby sought help from a local pro-life group. She swore that she would begin to advocate for life in the womb and expose abortion for what it truly is.
Planned Parenthood did not take Abby’s exodus sitting down. They are fully aware that the workers who leave are their greatest threat. Instantly, they took action to silence Abby with a gag order and took her to court. The lawsuit was quickly seen as the sham it was and thrown out of court. The media was, and continues to be, intensely interested in Abby’s story as well as her continued efforts to advocate for the unborn and help clinic workers escape the abortion industry. She is a frequently requested guest on Fox News and a variety of other shows and the author of the nationally bestselling book, Unplanned, which chronicles both her experiences within Planned Parenthood and her dramatic exit.
Today, Abby travels across the globe sharing her story, educating the public on pro-life issues, advocating for the unborn, and reaching out to abortion clinic staff who still work in the industry. She is the founder of And Then There Were None, a ministry designed to assist abortion clinic workers out of the industry. To date, this ministry has helped over 150 workers leave the abortion industry. Abby lives in Texas with her husband and five precious children and twins on the way!
