Two Abortion Facility Workers Quit, Abby Johnson Says

Abby Johnson, the former Planned Parenthood abortion facility director, noted on her Facebook page today that two more abortion facility workers have left their positions in the abortion industry.

The news is great for pro-life advocates and an indication of what Johnson said recently was the “Achilles Heel” of the pro-abortion movement — people leaving their positions at abortion centers.

“This week, two abortion clinic workers have taken a huge leap of faith and have left their clinics,” Johnson said. “Both of these former clinic workers are now unemployed. Both workers have children at home and many other financial obligations.”

“It is scary to leave your only source of income,” Johnson continued, “but in the end, they knew it was the only thing to do. They had to do the right thing.”

Johnson is attempting to raise $5,000 to help the two abortion facility workers as they try to take care of the financial obligations of their families and find a job in a legitimate field outside the abortion industry.

“Can you help these two workers get through their next few paychecks while they are looking for employment? There is no amount too large or small. These two workers have trusted God to take care of their needs…God is calling us to care for His children’s needs. Thank you for your support,” Johnson said.

The workers quitting follows Ramona Trevino, who resigned her post at Planned Parenthood as a manager of an abortion-referral center earlier this year.

Johnson recently shared a message with thousands of pro-life advocates about how she thinks abortion can be stopped.

Johnson shared her ideas with more than 5,000 people who tuned in to a national webcast sponsored by 40 Days for Life and she explained how she thinks abortions can be stopped or, at least severely reduced, even within the confines of legalized abortion. With the day that the Supreme Court overturns Roe or upholds some sort of abortion ban or amendment protecting unborn children likely a long way off, webcast viewers were interested in hearing Johnson’s ideas.

Abby said she speaks regularly with people who are former workers at abortion centers or want to get out of the abortion industry and are looking for help to do so. She says she is in contact with such people on a weekly basis and she believes helping abortion staffers leave their jobs is the Achilles Heel for Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry and could be the key to stopping considerable numbers of abortions by closing down abortion centers via lack of staff.

“Planned Parenthood’s greatest fear is that clinic workers will leave and that they will come out against them and that they will air their dirty laundry, just like I did, and they will expose their secrets,” Johnson said.

She explained that the proof to that is in the lawsuit the Bryan, Texas Planned Parenthood abortion business filed against her seeking to silence her from revealing the secrets behind Planned Parenthood after she left the abortion business. Johnson ultimately won the lawsuit and is able to share information about her experiences and insight into Planned Parenthood operations.

Johnson and the 40 Days for Life officials cited another proof — the closing of a Planned Parenthood abortion business in Sherman, Texas that came about after the director of the abortion facility resigned.
