The film will follow Johnson as a director of Planned Parenthood and later as a pro-life advocate with a strong desire to help women. Johnson, played by Ashley Bratcher (“War Room” and “90 Minutes in Heaven”), oversaw approximately 22,000 abortions at Planned Parenthood before she witnessed the ultrasound of an unborn baby that changed her life. …
