A Planned Parenthood Director Resigns

From Family Research Council at

For One Abortion Leader, Seeing Was Believing
The former director of Planned Parenthood in Bryan , Texas stood in a clinic room watching the ultrasound of a baby who would never be born. As the doctor snuffed out another life, Abby Johnson decided to change hers. On October 6, the eight-year veteran of the abortion movement turned in her resignation. "I just thought I can't do this anymore, and it was just like a flash hit me. [A]nd I thought, that's it." The "business" had been weighing on Abby for awhile. She told a local TV station that Planned Parenthood had become more aggressive in peddling abortion, especially with its branches. "It seemed like... the money wasn't in family planning, the money wasn't in prevention, the money was in abortion, and I had a problem with that."

For months, bosses had been leaning on Abby to "bring in more women" for abortion. Instead, Abby decided to lead more women to the truth. She teamed up with the Coalition for Life ministry and says she's never felt better. "I don't have this burden on me anymore," she says. Now her only burden is promoting the value of human life -- a passion that she and FRC share. Our new pregnancy resource center report is an in-depth look at how the pro-life movement is not only saving lives -- but changing them. Log on to FRC's new site for more information on how you can volunteer to help.

For a little balance to the story:

Notice how many million it takes to do 3 per cent of their business: abortions. Yikes!

Seems to me, the end of the story is the same --a lady's conscience wouldn't let her participate anymore.

Three more of your OCD comments for my blog down the DELETE drain today! And all three in less than 20 minutes; is that a new compulsive record?

What did I miss in them? Bible quotes? Dripping righteousness? Warning of eternal damnation?

Such prose wasted down the DELETE drain!

Such a pity.

"Love one another." - Jesus

You claim to not read --but I suspect the curiosity would kill you. I'm sure you read before deleting. You are too obsessive not to.

For the sake of readers here, don't worry about my comments at Mudflinger's. They were brief and that's why I commented there 3 times in 20 minutes --just enough time to be thoughtful and accurate. I comment on the topics he or his friends posts and am fully willing to have those comments be posted --they aren't some form of obscene harrassment of Mudflicker as his outrage might imply. Though I sometimes address him by his real name, knowing he won't print. I sometimes comment to his other writers there, on their topics.

His is a most provocative blog and I find it good for the ol' brain to do the rebuttal.

If I'm obsessive anything --it's an obsessive writer --I have always felt compelled to write on topical subjects of the day--love a new spiral notebook -- though computer has replaced the compulsion to write long-hand. What most inspires me is contending for truth and faith when I see falsehoods. I love having a blog!
