Abby Johnson has always been fiercely determined to help women in need. This drive led her to a career with Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. However, Abby’s journey took a dramatic turn when she witnessed the reality of abortion during an ultrasound-guided procedure, prompting her to flee the organization and become a vocal advocate for the pro-life movement.

During her eight years with Planned Parenthood, Abby ascended to the position of clinic director. Despite her growing discomfort with the organization’s practices, she remained dedicated to serving women in crisis. However, everything changed on September 26, 2009, when Abby was asked to assist with an abortion procedure. Witnessing the termination of a 13-week-old fetus firsthand shattered her perception of abortion as a mere medical procedure. This pivotal moment marked a profound transformation in Abby’s life, compelling her to leave Planned Parenthood and commit herself to advocating for the sanctity of life.

Abby Johnson | Inspirational Speaker

Background and Expertise:

Abby Johnson’s background and expertise stem from her unique experiences within the realm of reproductive healthcare. With eight years of service at Planned Parenthood, including her tenure as a clinic director, Abby possesses unparalleled insight into the inner workings of the abortion industry. Her firsthand observations have equipped her with a comprehensive understanding of the ethical, moral, and societal implications surrounding abortion.

Beyond her personal experiences, Abby is a compelling speaker who engages audiences with her authentic storytelling and unwavering commitment to her cause. Her journey from a dedicated Planned Parenthood employee to a passionate pro-life advocate resonates with audiences across diverse backgrounds. Abby’s ability to articulate complex issues surrounding abortion with clarity and empathy makes her a sought-after voice in the realm of reproductive rights and healthcare ethics.

Additionally, Abby’s expertise extends to counseling and supporting individuals who have experienced abortion, providing a compassionate perspective often overlooked in public discourse. Her comprehensive understanding of both the emotional and practical aspects of abortion equips her to address a wide range of topics with nuance and sensitivity.

Planned Parenthood did not take Abby’s departure sitting down. The organization is fully aware the workers who leave are their greatest threat. They took immediate action to silence Abby with a gag order and brought her to court. The lawsuit was quickly seen as the sham it was and it was ultimately thrown out of court.

The media was, and continues to be, intensely interested in Abby’s story as well as her continued efforts to advocate for the unborn and help clinic workers escape the abortion industry.

She is a frequently requested guest on Fox News and a variety of other shows. She is also the author of the nationally best-selling book, Unplanned, which chronicles both her experiences within Planned Parenthood and her dramatic exit.

Today, Abby Johnson travels across the globe sharing her story, educating the public on pro-life issues, advocating for the unborn, and reaching out to abortion clinic staff who still work in the industry. She is the founder of And Then There Were None, a ministry designed to assist abortion clinic workers in transitioning out of the industry.
