It was on October 5, 2009 that Abby walked out of the Planned Parenthood facility where she was clinic director and into the doors of the local pro-life organisation Coalition for Life.
Coalition for Life are the founders of 40 Days for Life – that incredible prayer vigil that has now spread throughout the world, saving the lives of thousands of babies and their mums and other family members from the devastation that abortion brings. Numerous abortion facility workers have also left because of the prayers of the faithful vigil goers. Abortion facilities have closed. Countless people have had their eyes opened to what is happening in their own backyard.
Abby and the Bryan, Texas Planned Parenthood facility are part of those inspiring 40 Days for Life statistics.
Abby’s Planned Parenthood clinic was the very first site of 40 Days for Life. Not only has Abby left and become a powerful and inspiring pro-life advocate, but that clinic closed in 2013.
So, who better to tell you just what Abby Johnson is like than those people who have prayed for her since she first walked through the gate of the Planned Parenthood facility in Bryan, Texas all those years ago?
Shawn Carney is the Campaign Director for 40 Days for Life and a good friend of Abby Johnson. Earlier this month he wrote a post “The top 5 things I know about Abby Johnson… 5 years later” to celebrate Abby’s five year anniversary of leaving Planned Parenthood. It is a great read and good introduction to the inspirational woman that is Abby Johnson.
Abby’s visit to New Zealand is one of those rare opportunities to personally hear the testimony of someone who has been immersed in the abortion industry.
Not only is she inspirational, Abby can show you how to effectively reach those who work in abortion facilities and abortion vulnerable women. You will hear the inside story of what is REALLY driving the abortion industry and organisations like Planned Parenthood and New Zealand Family Planning.
