Planned Parenthood Director Quits After Watching Abortion on Ultrasound

Good news here.,2933,571215,00.html?test=latestnews

Abby Johnson, 29, used to escort women from their cars to the clinic in the eight years she volunteered and worked for Planned Parenthood in Bryan, Texas. But she says she knew it was time to leave after she watched a fetus “crumple” as it was vacuumed out of a patient’s uterus in September.

'When I was working at Planned Parenthood I was extremely pro-choice," Johnson told But after seeing the internal workings of the procedure for the first time on an ultrasound monitor, “I would say there was a definite conversion in my heart … a spiritual conversion.”

Johnson said she became disillusioned with her job after her bosses pressured her for months to increase profits by performing more and more abortions, which cost patients between $505 and $695.

Thank you for posting this.

She is supposed to be on the Bill O’Reilly show this Friday.

Here are some comments from the 40 Days for Life blog:

*Among the 100+ media outlets reporting on Abby’s conversion story in the last 24 hours, she was a featured guest yesterday on the nationally syndicated Laura Ingraham radio show (guest hosted by Raymond Arroyo) and shared her riveting story about the impact of 40 Days for Life people praying outside of her workplace.

Not only that, but yesterday, the first segment of ABC’s “The View” had Barbara Walters discussing Abby’s conversion and the disturbing revelations about how Planned Parenthood pressured Abby to increase the numbers of abortions to increase their income — which even pro-abortion co-host Joy Behar called “gross.”

The View’s national audience then heard actress Sherri Shepherd relate her own experience of being pressured at Planned Parenthood when she was 17 years old. She told the Planned Parenthood worker, “I’m not quite sure what I should do and she was pressuring me to get the abortion.”

Praise God for all these opportunities Abby has to share the truth about life — and the harm caused by the abortion industry!

Please keep Abby in your prayers as abortion advocates — whose worldview has just been shattered — are now resorting to personal attacks against her.*

That is incredible! Thank you so much for posting this.

Please keep praying everyone! We can stop abortion and convert many hearts if we keep our eyes focused on Christ! Pray your rosaries, visit the Blessed Sacrament, fulfill your obligations.

One convert, many more to go!

Imagine what might happen if all the money that now supports the industry of abortion was used instead to assist parents (natural, adoptive and foster) to support and care for their children….

God bless Abby, God bless technology and God bless those who speak out against this evil.

That is exactly what the Right to Life groups work towards every day. They put their beliefs into action. I wish our entire church would. Things could be a lot different if all of us wouln ONLY SUPPORT PRO-LIFE candidates that are pro-life in word and action.

Some of our most ardent pro-life champions today were once integrally invoved in the grisly abortion industry. It takes a rare individual to admit grievous error. All their old “friends” turn on them with a vengeance. :frowning: Rob
