Abby Johnson is on a mission to tell the masses about the sordid reality of abortion and to offer a way out for those still embroiled within the industry.
Once the youngest clinic director at the nation’s leading abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, Johnson is now a fierce pro-life advocate with a story like no other. Her testimony is so astonishing that it was made into the feature-length movie, “Unplanned,” which has been shaking the pro-abortion crowd to its core ever since its release back in February.
“Unplanned,” based on Johnson’s book of the same title, is also enjoying incredible commercial success — not only has it taken three times its budget at the box office, but the DVD version is now flying off the shelves.
With such a vast reach across the globe, Johnson is determined to continue her pro-life mission through the work of her non-profit, “And Then There Were None,” and share a message of hope with as many as possible. Those efforts have led her to send a copy of the movie to every abortion clinic in America, expectant that it will impact lives and change hearts.
“When the movie came out, we sent tickets to every abortion clinic in the country, and we wanted to do the same for the film when it came out on DVD,” Johnson told Faithwire. “We often send notes of encouragement and love into abortion clinics, offering workers a way out, and by sending the film into the clinics, we hope to throw a lifeline to workers who maybe need that extra push to leave.”
Along with the movie, Johnson’s organization will send a letter to the workers at each clinic — not to shame them for what they do, but to graciously offer them a way out.
“We want them to know that they are loved and that there is help if they need it,” she said. “Love is the only way we are going to end abortion.”
Speaking of the heart-level impact the movie can have on those involved in the abortion industry, Johnson noted they screened it to many former clinic workers, and the impact was profound.
“When we showed ‘Unplanned’ to former abortion workers, every single one of them said that this is their story, that so many parts of the movie resonated with their own experiences, and that they felt they could show the film to their family and friends and say ‘look, this is what it was like,'” she told Faithwire, noting, “it’s important for these workers to know that they aren’t alone, that so many other people know what it’s like and what they have gone through, and that healing is possible.”
“Of course, we want them to know that they can leave their jobs and we can help them find new, life-affirming ones,” Johnson noted.
Johnson shared that she has already seen workers turn their back on the ghastly industry after watching the movie. Indeed, on her website, a tab in the top right-hand corner simply reads “Work at PP?” — the information contained there serves one purpose — to help workers get out of the abortion business.
“No one grows up wanting to work at an abortion clinic,” the page declares. “Let us help. Let me help. Contact our ministry through ‘And Then There Were None’ and we can help you get out.”
But does this actually happen? Have abortion workers literally walked out of their job after having their eyes opened by “Unplanned?”
“Oh yes!” Johnson exclaimed. “We have had workers see the movie and call us. We have helped several who came through our ministry after seeing Unplanned. We have given them help with their resumes, have accompanied them on healing retreats, and have counseled them and prayed with them.”
“I think this is only the beginning of abortion workers leaving their jobs at the clinics and finding healing,” she added.
