The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) decided "Unplanned" deserved an R rating due to some "disturbing/bloody scenes." According to The Hollywood Reporter:

The MPAA says the R-rating on Unplanned was for “some disturbing/bloody images” and was in no way politically motivated. Its process involves a ratings board of about 10 people from all walks of life — all of whom have children — voting and debating until they come to a majority agreement.
“Any film submitter who objects to the given rating can choose to go through the appeals process. To date, the distributor has chosen not to,” an MPAA spokesperson said about Unplanned. “Our rules provide a detailed timeline for the appeals process. There was sufficient time for it to be completed in advance of the film’s March 29 release.”
