Former Planned Parenthood worker inspires action Print
Letters to the editor

To the editor:

I couldn’t put Abby Johnson’s book down, unPlanned, I needed to share the following:

I quit: Abby Johnson, former director of a Planned Parenthood abortion mill in Texas, may not have said, “I quit,’’ however, her actions proved she did. Abby, an R.N., had been named as “employee of the year,’’ being valued as a committed, energetic, caring person. “Wearing many hats,” one day she was asked to help in the surgical room, where abortions were performed. Helping with an ultra-sound guided abortion, she expected to learn something. And indeed she did!

For seven years she had been told that the preborn human baby/fetus felt no pain. Yet with her own eyes she saw the baby struggling to move away from the abortionists’ instruments. Dazed and shocked, she decided to quit, to resign, having come to the stark realization that indeed the baby/fetus felt pain while being dismantled/torn apart while being removed from its mother’s womb.

A short time later she was shocked to receive a restraining order with a law suit against her from Planned Parenthood. Abby believes this was intended to intimidate and to scare her as well as other employees who wanted to leave their jobs, working in an abortion mill/clinic/center. The judge dismissed Planned Parenthood’s case. In fact, in the courtroom, Jeff, her lawyer, offered free legal help to other Planned Parenthood employees wishing to quit their employment.

What can you and I do? Abby says:

1. Pray for employees who work inside of the clinic/mill for their courage to quit.

2. Participate and please check: Forty-three abortion workers quit during a recent 40 Days for Life. September 28 through November 6 is the next scheduled event in 400 cities in the U.S. and other countries. Join other people in prayer and sacrifice.

3. Continue educating, be pro-life around the clock, for as Abby says, “Many people still have no idea that Planned Parenthood provides abortions. And, let people know what happens in an abortion mill.”

Read unPlanned by Abby Johnson, and listen to her DVD, Changing Sides. Allow your hearts to be altered.
