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.
