An eight-year veteran of a Texas abortion center has resigned after watching an abortion on ultrasound for the first time.
“I just thought, ‘What am I doing?’” explained Abby Johnson, former director of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. “And then I thought, ‘Never again.’” Johnson is referring to her experience watching the abortion of a 13-week-old fetus on ultrasound. According to the Christian Post, seeing the fetus trying to move away from the abortionist’s probe was a particularly powerful moment for Johnson.
She added, “Over the past few months I had seen a change in motivation regarding the financial impact of abortions and really reached my breaking point after witnessing a particular kind of abortion on an ultrasound.”
For the last five years, the abortion clinic where Johnson worked has been prayed for by pro-life group Coalition for Life/40 Days for Life. According to pro-life activist Shawn Carney, director of Coalition for Life and a 40 Days for Life board member, “It’s truly been a testament to the power of prayer and the courage of Abby to leave a job she felt she could no longer do in good conscience.” Perhaps not surprisingly, Planned Parenthood sought a restraining order against both Johnson and the Coalition for Life, although a Judge, this week, did not grant it.
