Unplanned Author Abby Johnson & Giveaway DVD
Abby Johnson quit her job in October 2009. That simple act became a national news story because Abby was the director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas who, after participating in her first actual abortion procedure, walked across the road to join the Coalition for Life.
Unplanned is a heart stopping personal drama of life-and-death encounters, a courtroom battle, and spiritual transformation that speaks hope and compassion into the political controversy that surrounds this issue. Telling Abby’s story from both sides of the abortion clinic property line, this book is a must-read for anyone who cares about the life versus rights debate and helping women who face crisis pregnancies.
This story is an eye opener. Never knew about the "money" making practices that went on. Am so glad that this is available to be a reality check.
The story begins telling Abby's wonderful home life, and then moves to her College years. I think the things that happened to her there led her to Planned Parenthood...and made it alright in her mind. Then comes along her husband to be, who along with her parents are praying for her. Add more spiritual warfare in the presence of the 40 Days of Prayer Members.
Recommend this highly as an example of God's Grace to us Sinners.
I was provided with a copy by the Publisher Tyndale, the opinions are my own.
On May 17th at 8:00 PM local time*, come be a part of the UNITEforLIFE webcast with Abby Johnson, a former abortion clinic director for Planned Parenthood. Join us for heartfelt discussions as Abby shares her long-held desire to help women in crisis, and the moment of pure awakening that led her to re-evaluate her life’s work.
During this webcast, hosted by Kelly Rosati, Vice President of Community Outreach for Focus on the Family, you’ll discover why Abby is now an advocate for the pro-life pregnancy centers and clinics around the nation that truly serve women and save lives. Special guests, representing over 2500 pregnancy care centers and clinics, include:
Dr. Peggy Hartshorn, President of Heartbeat International, heartbeatinternational.org
Tom Glessner, Founder and President of the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) www.nifla.org and
Melinda Delahoyde, President of Care Net, www.care-net.org, and
Lola French, CEO of the Canadian Association of Pregnancy Support Services, www.capss.com
Meet women who discovered that abortion was not their only choice and learn how they received the caring, confidential support they needed to choose life for their babies.
Plus, we’ll hear from Shawn Carney, co-founder of 40 Days for Life and former Executive Director of Coalition for Life, who befriended Abby when she worked at Planned Parenthood, tell how prayer and kindness are having a huge impact on those working at abortion clinics and speaking to the hearts of abortion-minded women.
If you’ve ever felt God’s calling to stand up for children who cannot speak for themselves; to raise your voice in defense of the preborn; if you want to help women who are face-to-face with the most difficult and important decision of their lives — and possibly change the future of abortion in our culture — join us at UniteForLifeWebcast.org on May 17 at 8pm, local time*.
