Texas Planned Parenthood Director Leaves

The power of an ultrasound:

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 Johnson. …

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

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.

Planned Parenthood has now filed a restraining order against Johnson contending that the organization would be irreparably harmed by the disclosure of certain information.

    Every so often one sees a ‘slap-you-on-the-side-of-the-head’ sign, slogan, etc. I had such an experience on Tuesday, last.

    As I pulled up behind a small SUV, I noticed a bumper sticker on the back. It had a picture of a fetus on one side at the top; and a woman on the other. The large word ABORTION was printed between them… Beneath it read “One Dead; One Wounded”.

    Succinct. Powerful.
