By Abby Johnson
Unplanned is a heart-stopping personal drama of Abby Johnson, a Planned Parenthood employee who rose through the ranks to become a clinic director. However, Abby became increasingly disturbed by what she witnessed. Abortion was a product Planned Parenthood was selling, not an unfortunate necessity they were fighting to decrease. On September 26, 2009 when Abby was asked to assist with an ultrasound-guided abortion, she watched in horror as a 13-week baby fought for, and ultimately lost its life at the hand of the abortionist. At that moment, Abby fully realized what abortion actually was and what she had dedicated her life to. As it washed over her, a dramatic transformation had occurred. Desperate and confused, Abby sought help from a local pro-life group. She swore that she would begin to advocate for life in the womb and expose the truth about abortion.
Planned Parenthood did not take Abby’s departure sitting down. The organization is fully aware that the workers who leave their employ are their greatest threat. They took immediate action to silence Abby with a gag order and brought her to court. The lawsuit was quickly seen as the sham it was and it was ultimately thrown out of court. 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 an actual abortion procedure for the first time, walked down the street to join the Coalition for Life.
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. Now updated with a new chapter covering the latest events in Abby’s journey, in the news, and in changing legislation . . . and revealing the impact Abby’s story has had in the most surprising places. She converted to Catholicism in 2012.
Today, Abby travels across the globe sharing her story, educating the public on pro-life issues, advocating for the unborn, and reaching out to abortion clinic staff who still work in the industry. She is the founder of And Then There Were None, a ministry designed to assist abortion clinic workers in transitioning out of the industry. To date, this ministry has helped over 430 workers leave the abortion industry. Abby lives in Texas with her husband and seven precious children.
Unplanned received the Retailers Choice Award winner in 2012 and was released as a movie in Spring 2019.
