Planned Parenthood Leader Resigns After Watching Abortion Ultrasound (Video)

The leader of Planned Parenthood in College Station, Texas left her post after watching the ultrasound of an abortion procedure. Abby Johnson told reporters that Planned Parenthood changed it’s business model from one that pushed prevention, to one that focused on abortion.

She recently joined the Pro-Life organization in her community.
KBTX reported, via Free Republic:

Planned Parenthood has been a part of Abby Johnson’s life for the past eight years; that is until last month, when Abby resigned. Johnson said she realized she wanted to leave, after watching an ultrasound of an abortion procedure.

“I just thought I can’t do this anymore, and it was just like a flash that hit me and I thought that’s it,” said Jonhson.

She handed in her resignation October 6. Johnson worked as the Bryan Planned Parenthood Director for two years.

According to Johnson, the non-profit was struggling under the weight of a tough economy, and changing it’s business model from one that pushed prevention, to one that focused on abortion.

“It seemed like maybe that’s not what a lot of people were believing any more because that’s not where the money was. The money wasn’t in family planning, the money wasn’t in prevention, the money was in abortion and so I had a problem with that,” said Johnson.

Johnson said she was told to bring in more women who wanted abortions, something the Episcopalian church goer recently became convicted about.

“I feel so pure in heart (since leaving). I don’t have this guilt, I don’t have this burden on me anymore that’s how I know this conversion was a spiritual conversion.”

Johnson now supports the Coalition For Life, the pro-life group with a building down the street from Planned Parenthood. Coalition volunteers can regularly be seen praying on the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood. Johnson has been meeting with the coalition’s executive director, Shawn Carney, and has prayed with volunteers outside Planned Parenthood.

    Try going into your local ‘planned parenthood’ and tell them you would like information about having a baby. They look at you like you have two heads. They should change their names to ‘Abortions R Us’. Truth in advertising.

    um, they are in the business of abortion. I’m glad she had a conversion, and I know things are different in Texas but where I come from, PP is in the abortion business and politics. Nothing moral about either one.

    WOW! Want to bet this makes BIG HEADLINES in the Liberal Media?

    Oh, wait. This happened a month ago, and so quietly that we have just managed to find out about it now on Gateway Pundit!

    Relying on the Liberal Media for your information is like relying on an embezzler for your portfolio management.

    I wonder if I can get he local paper to print this in PA? I doubt it, news like this is bad for business. And PP is big business here in Southeastern PA.
    Now give me a Republican in a bathroom stall, or another gone missing, on a trip to SA, and we will run with that. Juicy stuff. Not John Edwards though, juicy as that all is; we have too much sympathy for HIS wife.
    Currently, our local paper is busy practically convicting a local man running (conservative R) for school board, of crimes against humanity, because he befriended a local group of people who support the troops.
    Yes, a breakthrough is made, and a woman finds her soul, but that is not news.

    Planned Parenthood used to have responsible advocacy. Now it turns to the dark side, wholesale abortions for money. Sad..very sad.

    Now THAT is inspiring and hopeful news.

    It certainly validates the command to pray for those in authority, even our enemies and oppressors.

    “I urge, then, first of all, requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all men; for kings and those in authority” (1 Timothy 2:1).

    Someone had the courage and love to reach out to her, perhaps asked to pray together, and she accepted. That prayer let G-d reach her.

    May we all become someone who others will be willing to pray with. Or actually: may we all live AS IF we were that kind of person, just be an avenue and G-d will find a way. He doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called. May G-d’s Providence move through all of us.

    Finally, that ultra-sound recording must be a powerful video. What would it take to broadcast it on national TV? Although, I don’t think I could bear to watch it myself.

    Best regards, Peter Warner.

    What angers me most about the Feminist and her defense of abortionism is that for the first 42 years of living I learned everything there is to know about sex yet knew nothing about abortionism.

    I am woman who accepted abortion without conscience until I learned in 2003 at the age of 42 that our culture forced doctors to commit creepy things to fully developed human beings who have their own distinctly unique human DNA and that the only thing the law distinguished between life and death was the proximity of the head of the fully developed human being.

    Feminists, because you NEVER allowed anyone to know the monster you created I am a woman who will NEVER support you again; you are my enemy because you hid your yourselves behind a facade of lies and emotional blackmail which has only devastated lives and human conscience.

    Sweeties, when you abort it is NEVER your body aborted so stop lying about what you are advocating; not only did MZ Gloria Steinem burn our bras, she ripped out our wombs.

    Shouldn’t that video be required to watch with a trained professional for ALL women who are considering abortion?

  • PJ

    Why does a non-profit have a business model? Don’t they get enough money from the taxpayers and liberal donors?
