Abby Johnson has quickly become one of the most well-known converts — becoming pro-life after spending years directing a Planned Parenthood abortion facility. Now, she’s starting a new effort to swell the ranks of former abortion clinic workers who are now pro-life.

Next month, Johnson will launch the official website for And Then There Were None, a nonprofit organization she has started that ministers specifically to abortion clinic workers. And Then There Were None will emotionally, spiritually, legally, and financially assist former abortion clinic workers as they transition out of the abortion industry and into a new line of work.

“We have hundreds of ministries for post-abortive women and men.  There is literally nothing for these former clinic workers,” Johnson said.  “We are going to change that.”

Johnson told LifeNews late Tuesday that ATTWN seeks to assist former abortion clinic workers through these four integral aspects: emotional, spiritual, legal, and financial.  She said emotional support will be readily available for these former clinic workers as they need it and they will be connected to a spiritual guidance counselor of any religious denomination of their choosing for the process of spiritual healing.

Full legal protections of an attorney will be available to former clinic workers at no cost for any abortion facility staff considering quitting their jobs and they will obtain financial support as they receive assistance in finding a new job outside of the abortion industry.

Aside from prayer, Johnson says, the most crucial aspect of this new ministry is garnering funds so these clinic workers can literally afford to leave the abortion industry and still be able to provide for themselves and their families.  This is where pro-lifers can truly be active in their convictions: as there is no other outreach program like this one, it will need support, she explained.

ATTWN will hold its first ever international webcast entitled “Exposing the Lie” on June 11. This is an opportunity for the pro-life community to hear from actual former abortion clinic workers.  They will share their testimonies and experiences inside the abortion industry.  It will also be an opportunity to help fund this new and vital ministry.



“It is not always easy to convince people to give to a ministry where you may never meet the people you help,” Johnson said.  “You may never know their names. You may never see them face to face. But your support is saving them…saving them from a road of darkness, of pure evil. Your support is bringing them into hope.”

“If you or someone you know wants to leave the abortion industry, there is free, confidential help available,” Johnson says. “Visit or to contact ATTWN and receive guidance and assistance through your transition out of the abortion industry— every step of the way.”
