The pro-life movie “Unplanned” earned double the box office sales expected for its opening weekend, even while dealing with apparent censorship on social media.

Based on the life of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood clinic worker turned anti-abortion activist, the movie raked in approximately $6.1 million over the weekend.

This was twice the expected ticket sales, and makes “Unplanned” the third biggest opening weekend film by Pure Flix, behind 2014’s “God’s Not Dead” ($9.2 million) and 2016’s “God’s Not Dead 2” ($7.6 million).

Deadline Hollywood labeled the success of the pro-life film “remarkable” since the movie was rated R and was not able to run ads on most of the major cable networks.

Pure Flix CEO Michael Scott said in a statement released Sunday that his company was “very happy for the success of this film.”
