MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, who credits Jesus for saving him from substance abuse, is funding a pro-life film scheduled for nationwide release in March.

In a pinned tweet on his Twitter page, Lindell celebrates the tenth anniversary of his freedom from drugs and alcohol, quoting the Bible:

10-years ago today (Jan. 16th, 2009) I was freed from crack cocaine, alcohol, etc. Thank you Jesus!! “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6 #10YearChallenge

Lindell invested one million dollars in “Unplanned,” a six million dollar film billed as “one woman’s journey of transformation” from one of the nation’s youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors into one of the country’s most outspoken pro-life advocates.

The actress portraying the film’s subject, Abby Johnson, was almost a victim of abortion, The Hollywood Reporter explains, noting the movie’s ties to other pro-life films, such as “God’s Not Dead”:

Johnson is played by Ashley Bratcher, who told Fox News last month that her mother, at age 19, nearly aborted her but changed her mind while at the clinic the day the procedure was scheduled. In the trailer, Johnson is warned not to defy Planned Parenthood, "one of the most powerful organizations on the planet."

Unplanned was written and directed by Cary Soloman and Chuck Konzelman, the writers and co-producers of God's Not Dead and God's Not Dead 2, both of which were also distributed theatrically by Pure Flix.
