Recalling how money-focused the abortion industry is, a former Planned Parenthood director recently said she used to carry “huge bags of cash” to the bank after abortion days.
Abby Johnson, who became pro-life after running a Texas abortion facility, shared part of her story in the new Pure Flix TV series “Beautiful Lives,” according to The Blaze. The show features interviews with former abortion clinic workers who left the industry.
Johnson said she started out as a volunteer with Planned Parenthood and later became the director of one of its Texas facilities. She even received an award from her employer for her dedication.
Though she grew up in a Christian home, she said she strayed from her upbringing and began to make up excuses to justify her abortion work.
“I was so good at justifying sin at that point in my life that I could justify just about anything,” Johnson said.
But as time went on, she began to notice things that disturbed her, including Planned Parenthood’s focus on money.
Here’s more from the report:
Among Johnson’s responsibilities at the clinic was handling money the facility made from its abortion procedures — something she now looks back on with clearer vision.
“It was my job to take the money to the bank and after a full day of committing abortions. … I would have two large cash bags … just full, I mean overflowing with cash,” she said. “It was nothing to have $20, $30,000 in these bags. I didn’t really see it then, but now I recognize how lucrative it really was and that it truly was a cash business.”

Johnson shared that she started having reservations about her role at the clinic when she was told that the organization would build “the largest abortion facility in the western hemisphere.”
Eventually, Johnson said she began to see Planned Parenthood for what it is, an abortion business. She said she attended leadership meetings where Planned Parenthood leaders promoted abortion quotas and pressured her to meet them. She said it contradicted the abortion reduction message that Planned Parenthood officials state in public.
Johnson said she finally decided to quit after she assisted with a 13-week abortion. She said she watched an unborn baby struggle for his/her life on an ultrasound screen as the abortionist killed the unborn baby.
“I had believed that the unborn didn’t have any sensory development, didn’t feel anything,” she said. “And so to see this, I was surprised, and then [I] also realized it had been this big lie and then I thought, ‘What else have we been lying about?’”
Today, Johnson runs a ministry called And Then There Were None, which provides assistance to abortion workers who want to quit the industry. According to the Christian Post, 550 abortion clinic employees and seven doctors have left their jobs with the help of the ministry.
Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion chain in America. It aborted nearly 346,000 babies last year while reaping in $1.6 billion in revenue. It has been accused of discriminating against its pregnant employees and selling aborted baby body parts.
