Hundreds of Abortion Workers Leaving the Industry

 

Abby Johnson is the epitome of “the power of one.”

At the 2017 March for Life, Abby shared her story of quitting her job as director of a Planned Parenthood and going on to start a pro-life organization, And Then There Were None (ATTWN).

“I stand in front of you today as a woman who spent 8 years of her life working and running a Planned Parenthood facility but because of the power of conversion…I stand in front of you, as a woman who has been redeemed from her past.”

ATTWN has helped 330 abortion clinic workers and seven full-time abortion doctors leave the abortion industry. In fact, many of these “quitters,” as she affectionately calls them, stood with her on stage at the March for Life.

Abby relates the “power of one” to each of the “quitters” standing with her. “Almost every woman standing here today was touched by one person. For a client named Annette, it was some someone who slipped our website [brochure] under her windshield.” She goes on to say, “For me, it was a 13 week baby in the womb who changed my life.”

In 2010, the year after she quit her job at Planned Parenthood, Abby published, “Unplanned: The Dramatic True Story of a Former Planned Parenthood Leader’s Eye-Opening Journey across the Life Line.” In the memoir, Abby tells the story of assisting in an actual abortion procedure – of a 13-week baby in the womb – and being hit by the realization of what was happening. That dramatic moment led her to quit her job and walk out of the abortion industry forever.

>>>> Many March for Life participants had a chance to meet with Abby and purchase copies of “UnPlanned” at a book signing at the March for Life Conference and Expo. You can also purchase the book from Amazon.

Abby concluded her 2017 March for Life remarks with these encouraging and bold words, urging participants to dig down and realize the “power of one” in each of us, which collectively becomes an unstoppable force.

“Now is the time to be unabashedly pro-life; to be bold in our defense of the unborn and their mothers. Through the power of all of us, we will not only work to make abortion illegal but we will see a day when abortion is truly unthinkable in this country.”

March for Life Leads Letter to Department of Justice

 

Along with pro-life allies, the March for Life sent a coalition letter to the Department of Justice and FBI regarding an investigation into Planned Parenthood. The letter addresses Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe and it writes: “The previous administration decided to turn a blind eye to the wrongdoing, which led to the creation of the select panel. We request that the Justice Department continue the investigation into the practices surrounding this scandal.”

6 Things to Know from Planned Parenthood’s Annual Report

 

Planned Parenthood typically releases its annual report in December or January each year, but only made their latest report, for 2015-2016, available earlier this week, six months late. Could it be that they sought to delay or hide the truth about the “services” they provide?

As Congress considers healthcare reform legislation that would redirect the federal funding Planned Parenthood currently receives to Federally Qualified Health Centers, this latest report from the nation’s largest abortion provider gives information that pro-life Americans need to know.

Here are six points from Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report:

  1. In the last year,* Planned Parenthood performed 328,348 abortions. This is an increase of over 4,300 more abortions from the prior year. Note that the national number of abortions decreased during this time. Planned Parenthood is increasing its market value for abortions.
  2. Total revenue ($1.354 billion) and government funding ($554.6 million) in 2016 are the highest they have been for Planned Parenthood.
  3. Planned Parenthood made more than $77 million in profit. This is an increase of $19 million more than the year prior. Keep in mind that Planned Parenthood is a non-profit organization. Additionally, Planned Parenthood invests heavily in electing abortion advocates. A recent article revealed that Planned Parenthood’s political arms spent over $38 million in election funding between 2012-2016.
  4. Non-reproductive health care services have greatly decreased. Cancer screenings have dropped by half since 2011, abortions now outnumber basic breast exams for the first time in its history.
  5. The number of patients and prenatal services continue to decrease. Prenatal services have dropped by almost a half since last year alone, and the number of patients is down by four percent.
  6. They falsely claim that the Center for Medical Progress Video footage containing damning evidence of Planned Parenthood’s involvement in the trafficking of baby parts was “heavily edited” and “widely discredited”. However, a forensic analysis and congressional investigation have disproven these erroneous talking points. Read more HERE.

As you can see abortion and revenue numbers continue to go up, and women’s health services continue to decrease, and yet government funding has increased over the past year.

What can you do?

  1. Please share this information and the graphic below to show the truth about Planned Parenthood, our nation’s largest abortion provider.

  2. Contact your lawmakers to demand an end to federal funding of abortion providers like Planned Parenthood. It is the right thing to do, and over 60% of Americans oppose their taxpayer dollars paying for abortions.

Pro-Life Leaders Urge House to Move Forward in Defunding Abortion Giant

Washington, D.C – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Monday national security has become the top issue Republicans are looking promote as a possible “add on” in the upcoming government spending bill, and said this issue may end up replacing efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.

Pro-Life leaders across the board are urging House Leadership not to delay the fight to defund Planned Parenthood.

“Planned Parenthood is the largest abortionist in the United States and it is abhorrent that taxpayers are being forced to subsidize them,” said Tom McClusky, President of March for Life Action. “The abortion giant is not the only pro-life concern that is in front of Congress. To name just a few, there are currently pro-life Christian hospitals being forced to pay for abortions, taxpayers being forced to pay for abortions for detained immigrants and Congressional staff on Obamacare exchanges that offer abortions despite that being against Federal law. If Congress wants to protect taxpayers from being complicit in the deaths of innocents, those are all good places to start.”

Planned Parenthood commits close to 330,000 abortions every year. In their 2013-2014 report Planned Parenthood stated their total revenue was over $1.3 billion. 46 percent of that revenue came from federal, state and city governments. In that same year, the non-profit had a budget surplus of $127.1 million, some of which was likely profit from trafficking of little hearts, lungs and livers of little babies.

The March for Life in Washington, D.C., began as a small demonstration on January 22, 1974, the first anniversary of the now-infamous Supreme Court decisions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, abortion.
