There’s no question about it, Abby Johnson is an inspiring force in the pro-life movement.
After working with Planned Parenthood for many years, Abby had a change of heart after witnessing an abortion. Since then, Abby has dedicated her life to spreading the truth about abortion. She runs the ministry And Then There Were None, which helps abortion workers leave the industry.
Her life story was even made into a movie, “Unplanned,” which appeared in theaters across the nation last spring.
We had an opportunity to sit down with Abby after the March for Life last week and ask her a few questions. Here’s what she had to say.
1. The movie “Unplanned” was based off your real-life story. What is the number 1 lesson you hope audiences learn from watching it?
AJ: That conversion is real, that it’s possible, and that it’s available to everyone. That no one is beyond the power of Christ and that—you know what?—it’s OK to change your mind on the issue of abortion.
No matter how long you’ve been pro-choice, no matter how many abortions you’ve had, no matter if you’ve worked in the abortion industry, that it’s always OK to change your mind on the issue of abortion and to support life.
2. This year’s March for Life theme is “Empower Women.” How can we best empower women to choose life in 2020?
AJ: You know, people need to definitely be involved with their local pregnancy centers and really looking for opportunities to—sort of—do life with women in need. So, whether that is volunteering time, whether that is providing supplies for women, volunteering with your pregnancy resource center—whatever it may be. Even working on legislative issues.
There are so many different facets of the pro-life movement, so I really believe that there is a place for every single person out there that is pro-life. There is a place for you to get involved.
And we’re at a time where—I say this and it maybe a little controversial, but I always tell people that it’s not OK just to sit at home and pray anymore. If you want to be really serious about ending abortion, then our prayer life needs to move us to action. And, so, pray—absolutely— but we have got to really feel this urgency and harness this urgency inside of us, so that it compels us to move, to act, to end this injustice of abortion.

While claiming to protect women’s health, this legislation fails to acknowledge the physical and mental toll abortion has on women—to say nothing of the unborn female lives being aborted.
This adds another bold pro-abortion move to the list of egregious actions taken by President Biden.
