Putting your money where you mouth is would be one way to show how much you believe in something. One entrepreneur has done just that.

Christian conservative CEO of My Pillow Mike Lindell has reportedly invested in a new film that might not make the folks at abortion mill Planned Parenthood that happy.

According to The Hollywood Reporter (THR):

Michael Lindell, worth an estimated $300 million, tells The Hollywood Reporter he has plowed $1 million into Unplanned, an upcoming feature that was shot in secret due to its critical take on Planned Parenthood.

His investment amounts to one-sixth the entire production budget of Unplanned, which comes from some of the same filmmakers who were behind God's Not Dead and I Can Only Imagine, a couple of Christian films that did well at the box office, earning $61 million and $84 million, respectively.

Lindell is said to also be making a cameo in the film where he portrays some kind of construction worker that bulldozes a vacant Planned Parenthood building that's being turned into pro-life organization.

"I’m pro-life, and I’m happy to do it," Lindell said, according to THR.

Here's the synopsis for "Unplanned," according to the film's website:

All Abby Johnson ever wanted to do was help women. As one of the youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors in the nation, she was involved in upwards of 22,000 abortions and counseled countless women about their reproductive choices. Her passion surrounding a woman’s right to choose even led her to become a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, fighting to enact legislation for the cause she so deeply believed in.

Until the day she saw something that changed everything, leading Abby Johnson to join her former enemies at 40 Days For Life, and become one of the most ardent pro-life speakers in America.

Lindell, a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump, said that he focuses more on whether or not something has the "right message" and less about the money.

"I don’t get into things for the money; I get into them if the message is right," said Lindell.

During his THR interview, Lindel also doubled-down on his support for the president.

"I’ve prayed about everything I’ve done,” Lindell told THR. “I met Donald Trump before he was president and I didn’t know a thing about politics. I walked out of his office thinking there was no better man in this world that I would like to be my president."
