TODAY! First annual “Leave the Abortion Industry” Day


UPDATE: 4/8, 12:45p: Today’s the day! As we speak, Abby Johnson is part of a contingent appealing to abortion clinic workers to leave their jobs outside of the Planned Parenthood late-term abortion clinic in Austin, Texas.

Here’s a photo just texted to me of And Then There Were None fellow board member, Jennie Stone. Click to enlarge…


Abby was featured on Fox News yesterday. Here’s video…

So far five abortion clinic workers have contacted ATTWN. Please pray for them and “Leave the Abortion Industry Day.” Also promote this on Facebook and Twitter. Use hashtag #Exodus2013.

5/25, 3:28p: Former Planned Parenthood manager Abby Johnson’s amazing conversion story is well-known in the pro-life world: After visualizing an abortion on ultrasound, Abby walked out of her Bryan, Texas, PP clinic in October 2009 and walked into the Coalition for Life office headed by Shawn Carney, who now coleads the 40 Days for Life ministry.

abby-johnsonSince then Abby has never looked back, releasing the best-selling exposé, UnPLANNED, in 2011 and launching the And Then There Were None ministry last year.

ATTWN reaches out to abortion workers to encourage them to leave the trade.

To date ATTWN has helped 47 souls escape that bloody industry. ATTWN helps former clinic workers in four important ways, providing:

  • Up to three months of financial support after a worker resigns
  • Emotional support as often as needed during the transition time
  • A spiritual advisor of the former worker’s choosing
  • Legal counsel who will protect the worker’s interests at no cost during transition

Now Abby has announced Exodus 2013, the first annual “Leave the Abortion Industry” Day, on April 8. As explained on the group’s Pray for Day of Exodus 2013 Facebook page,”This is the designated day that employees of abortion clinics leave their jobs in pursuit of new careers, knowing they have support.”

ATTWN will promote the event with a targeted Facebook campaign as well as with fliers sent to abortion clinics nationwide. All communications are kept confidential.

Of course, abortion clinic workers shouldn’t feel like they need to wait. As noted on Exodus 2013’s Facebook page, “We’ve already been contacted by a clinic worker who doesn’t want to wait until April 8 to leave and she has quit already!”

Abortion clinics are fighting to hold on to their accomplices. Former workers have told Abby about emails and fliers clinics have distributed telling employees to avoid her. Obviously, working for an abortion clinic is not something most would aspire to. Getting and keeping hired help must be a full-time job, pardon the pun.

We don’t yet have the law on our side. But we can kill abortion by a thousand other cuts. One of those is those is depriving the abortion industry of people to do their dirty work. In the process, we are pulling them from the pit of hell.

Coincidentally, Abby chose “Exodus 2013” not realizing Exodus 20:13 states, “You shall not murder,” the fifth commandment.

Use of graphic pictures not optional

by Fletcher Armstrong, PhD
Southeast Director of the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform

I posed this to the SFLA conference in DC on Sunday. In spite of all the evidence that pictures win hearts, change minds, and save lives, some of our pro-life friends not only won’t use them, they actively encourage others to reject their use.

Pictures work for us just as they have worked for social reformers for centuries. Horrifying images helped stop slavery, end abusive child labor, and abolish segregation.

New Stanek WND.com column, “Planned Parenthood’s unplanned pro-life advocate”

I, like everyone else who has opened Abby Johnson’s new book, UnPlanned, couldn’t put it down….

Abby’s book contains several insights, but what I gained most from reading UnPlanned was a better understanding of the abortion worker’s mind.

Abby challenged my preconceived notions from the start, literally, in her foreword…

Top 10 enemies the pro-abortion Left fears

The NewsRealBlog has posted a list of the “Top Ten Enemies the Pro-Abortion Left Fears.”

As in the last Top 10 list, I barely edged in but am honored for the inclusion (and am adding this to my bio!).

I’m not sure “fears” is the right word. Maybe “hates”? And I’m not sure how NRB devised the list, which appears to be a group effort.

Nevertheless, it’s interesting. The only one I would question is Sekulow. He’s a good lawyer, but there are many good lawyers who exclusively focus on the Life issue, which he does not…
