Abby Johnson has been wondering what the abortion industry thought of her new ministry, And Then There Were None, dedicated to helping abortion clinic workers quit their jobs.

She now has confirmation, as one Planned Parenthood clinic has gone as far as threatening to sue an associate of Abby’s and her organization for offering to help clinic workers get out of the abortion business.

As Johnson writes today:

One of our former workers sent in an ATTWN flier to her previous clinic.  She did not put a return address on the envelope and has not had any contact with her former co-workers.  Yet, just the other day, she received a letter from her former employer, Planned Parenthood.  It stated, “[The PP staff] feel your communication is intimidating and harassing and they want it to stop.”

It also went on to say, “You do not have license to harass your former co-workers, either at work or in their homes, or to provide information to others that allows them to engage in harassing behavior.  IF THIS BEHAVIOR CONTINUES, PLANNED PARENTHOOD, ON BEHALF OF ITS EMPLOYEES, WILL PURSUE ALL AVAILABLE LEGAL REMEDIES.”

Wow!!  They are so intent on keeping our information out of the hands of their current employees, they decide to threaten legal action against one of their former workers.  And without ANY proof that she sent in the flier!

We have also recently been told by former workers that supervisors are now reading EVERY email sent out by their employees to ensure they are not reaching out to our ministry.

This is exactly why ATTWN is needed.  The abortion industry is quick to threaten legal action against its former employees.  These workers need to know that they are protected against these threats.  ATTWN is able to connect all of our former workers with pro-life lawyers who are ready and willing to go head to head with the abortion industry.  Former workers can now feel protected and safe from retaliation.

We are so proud of the 46 former clinic workers who have courageously stepped out from the abortion industry.  Thank you all for providing the support that they desperately needed.



Abby’s group has announced its first retreat for former abortion clinic workers.

“We are working hard to make sure that these workers not only leave the abortion industry, but also find the emotional and spiritual healing they need.  Please be in prayer for those who will attend.  The retreat will be held at the end of May.  We are flying former workers from all over the country to our retreat center,” Johnson explains.
