Planned Parenthood Director Quits After Seeing Abortion

Ad Feedback

The director of a southeast Texas Planned Parenthood office has resigned after eight years.

Abby Johnson had a change of heart after watching an ultrasound of an abortion. She now works for the Coalition for Life, a pro-life group that often prays outside her old Planned Parenthood office.

Johnson said her bosses pressured her for months to increase profits by performing more abortions.

"I could actually see it was a 13 week old baby and I could actually see the side profile of the baby on the ultrasound," she said. " And I could see the cannula going into the uterus. And I could see the baby moving away from the cannula trying to get away from the probe."

Johnson said when the procedure started she saw the baby crumple.

"That was just life changing for me," she added. "I had never seen that done before."

She also said there is no spirituality in the abortion industry.

"There can't be. You're taking human life and that's what it is," she added. "Pro-choice or pro-life, you're taking human life and there's no spirituality there."

"I struggled with it for a long time," she explained about her experiences. 'But you learn to justify it somehow and I've learned over the years and through this conversion that if you're doing the right thing, you shouldn't have to justify it."
Planned Parenthood has not commented on the accusations, but has filed a restraining order against Johnson.
