UPDATE, 1/8, 8:10a: This morning unPlanned is at #227! I got up at 3a to read it a couple more hours. Am now 3/4 of the way through. It is so eye-opening, and very current. Abby discusses, for instance, how the other side felt when George Tiller, who she knew, was killed.

1/ 7, 7:44: Abby Johnson’s new book, unPlanned, won’t even be released until January 11, but it is already shooting up Amazon’s bestseller’s list.

I received an advanced copy yesterday and have had a hard time putting it down. It’s excellent – compelling, intriguing, full of insight, and giving me a lot to think about. Here’s a description:

Abby Johnson quit her job in October 2009. That simple act became a national news story because Abby was director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas who, not long after assisting in an actual abortion procedure for the first time, cross the line to join the Coalition for Life.

What happened in that clinic to cause this PP leader and Employee of the Year to take such drastic action? And how did PP react to her abrupt departure? Join Abby as she reveals her full story for the first time in Unplanned: a heart-stopping personal drama of life-and-death encounters, a courtroom battle, and spiritual transformation. Abby’s unique vantage point from both sides of the abortion clinic property line shines light and compassion into the political controversy that surrounds this issue.

For anyone who cares about the life-versus-rights debate and helping women who face crisis pregnancies, Unplanned is a must-read.

Earlier this afternoon Abby tweeted her surprise that her book – not even for sale yet! – had debuted at 404! then 366! then 297! Her excitement was… well, exciting!…

But I just checked and it’s now ranked at #242! Let’s help her break the top 100. Order your copy today!
