Abby is the founder and CEO of And Then There Were None, a ministry for those leaving the abortion industry. This event is free and open to the public. This film is rated R. It was given that rating due to the graphic content of the abortion images despite the ironic fact women too young to see the movie can get an actual abortion. We do not recommend this film for children younger than 13. Parents of teens 13 – 15 should make a decision based on the maturity level of the teen. New Gottland Covenant Church will provide a separate program for children.
