Introduction by David Bereit, 40 Days for Life
Foreword by Fr. Frank Pavone Priests for Life

Abby Johnson quit her job in October 2009. That simple act became a national news story because Abby was the director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas who, after participating in her first actual abortion procedure, walked across the road to join the Coalition for Life.

Unplanned is a heart stopping personal drama of life-and-death encounters, a courtroom battle, and spiritual transformation that speaks hope and compassion into the political controversy that surrounds this issue. Telling Abby's story from both sides of the abortion clinic property line, this book is a must-read for anyone who cares about the life versus rights debate and helping women who face crisis pregnancies.

"Beautifully written, intimate and honest. A wonderful portrait of the power of truth and grace working in the human heart."
+ Archbishop Charles Chaput

"This remarkable book is destined to reshape the culture of death into a culture of love, life and hope in Christ the Lord . . . it's a life-changer!"
- Judie Brown, President, American Life League Inc.

"The moving true story of the shocking truth of abortion and how God's love transformed Abby's life."
- Fr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR

"Abby Johnson is one of the bravest women I know. Once she realized the truth, Abby had the courage to leave the abortion industry and become a powerful voice for the defenseless. Her inspiring story challenges us to face the truth about the abortion industry and its many victims."
- Lila Rose, President, Live Action

"Abby walked out of the abortion industry and came into my office just next door. After seeing her transformation from running a Planned Parenthood to joining our efforts to help women and save lives, I believe that ANYONE can change their mind on abortion."
- Shawn Carney, 40 Days for Life

"Abby Johnson's journey from Planned Parenthood insider to pro-life activist is a powerful witness to the tireless efforts and prayers of those working on the frontlines in this culture of death so prevalent in our world today. "
-Teresa Tomeo, Syndicated Catholic Talk-Host

"A compellingly candid story! Not argument or ideology but first-person facts and utterly honest feelings."
-Peter Kreeft, Author, Three Approaches to Abortion

"This is the remarkable story of how one director of a Planned Parenthood abortion center came to realize that truth - and what she did about it."

- Eduardo Verastegui, Star of Bella

"Abby Johnson's story is one of great moral courage in an age that groans for lack of it. Hers is a modern parable of hope for us all, witnessing to the truth that sets the human heart free."
-Marjorie Dannenfelser, Susan B. Anthony List

That is a book I want to buy. I heard that Planned Parenthood had tried to sue so that book couldn't be written, but they lost.

May the Holy Spirit use that book to enlighten many!


I agree with you 100 percent, may the Holy Spirit use the book Unplanned to shine the light of Truth on the darkness of abortion.

You are right too that Planned Parenthood try to sue Abby Johnson to basically keep her quiet, and make an example of her to others employed by Planned Parenthood who might be thinking of doing the same as Abby.

Thankfully, that didn’t happen.


i read this book, and wow!.....thats about all i can say.......except God Bless this woman!...and i hope more and more people read the book

It is good news to hear that Abby Johnson and her husband are becoming Catholic!

I can’t wait to read it.
