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.

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.”
