Abby Johnson Insights on Live Action Videos

Abby Johnson, is a former director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas. She became a Pro life activist after assisting in an ultra sound assisted abortion. God had been working on her heart for quite some time, but seeing a 13 week baby fighting for life in in the womb was the final event that led to her conversion.

Abby has a blog where she has a post up on the Live Action Planned Parenthood videos. She tells of her treatment of a prostitute who comes into PP with her pimp.


There we were.  We had Sara’s pimp right there in the palm of our hand.  And what did we do?  We let her walk out the door with him.  We inserted a long term method that day…per her pimp’s request.  We treated her, yet again, for a sexually transmitted infection and sent her on her way.  We never saw her again.  I frequently thought about her.  When I would drive through the “bad” part of town, I would look for her on the street.  I don’t know what happened to Sara.  But I do know that I could have done my part to protect her.  I failed her.

“I am not proud to tell you this.  But, I feel like it is necessary.  You need to know that what you see in these videos presented by Live Action is not a rare occurrence.  It happens every day in some Planned Parenthood clinic in this country.  Pimps are sending their workers into the arms of Planned Parenthood.  Why?  Because Planned Parenthood is safe.  I don’t mean safe in a good way.  I mean safe in the worst way.  It is safe for the pimp and dangerous for the women.  Planned Parenthood touts the line that they want to “keep women safe.”  Well, is that only certain women?  We know they don’t care about females in the womb.  We know they don’t care about women who have complications about an abortion.  We know they don’t care about minors who are being abused by grown men.  Now we have to add in women who work in the sex industry.  So, who are these women that Planned Parenthood wants to keep safe?  The group keeps getting smaller and smaller. “ Read more here.

My favorite deacon heard Abby speak in Des Moines recently. He was  quite impressed with her–and he is not easily impressed.  He purchased her book and had her sign it for me. It is a powerful account of her time at PP . It is also a testimony to how God is always trying to draw us away from sin and to Turn back to him. I read it  in one sitting. She is a brave women. I usually don’t care about having an author sign a book, but I feel privileged to have Abby’s signature on my copy.
