The film tells the onetime reality of Andy Johnson, who also has a memoir called “Unplanned.”

Irrespective of what some fans might think, the Duggars’ seem to have their back. John David and Abbie supported the couple's advice. They posted a caption which read:

“ We watched this movie over the weekend, and it was one of the most impacting movies we have ever seen, no matter which side of the fence you are on, we encourage you to go see this!”

Another family member gave her perception on the subject of controversy after seeing the film. Jill Duggar, seemed to be on the fence, she stated that she had no problem with women who had undergone abortions, but that if a woman is faced with the options of abortion, and keeping the pregnancy, she should endeavor to choose life.

The A-list movie was not only recommended by the Duggars’, other notable individuals like the vice president, Mike Pence, Patricia Heaton, and Mike Huckabee also projected the movie to their fans.


The Duggars’ always manifest their formidable bond by being supportive of one another, asides from giving similar responses to the prevalent issue. They seem to have each other back still.

Josiah and Lauren claimed their love from family and friends kept them going after they suffered a miscarriage. They said the prayers and stories shared from fans who had experienced similar circumstances paved the way for them to heal up quickly.

It is certain that their experience as a family has helped to inform their ideas on abortion, whether they are for or against it, losing a pregnancy accidentally is not something the Duggars' welcome.
