Planned Parenthood Director Quits After Watching Abortion on Ultrasound
FOX ^ | 11/2/09 | Joseph Abrams

Posted on 11/02/2009 7:26:12 PM PST by Nachum

The former director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in southeast Texas says she had a "change of heart" after watching an abortion last month — and she quit her job and joined a pro-life group in praying outside the facility.

Abby Johnson, 29, used to escort women from their cars to the clinic in the eight years she volunteered and worked for Planned Parenthood in Bryan, Texas. But she says she knew it was time to leave after she watched a fetus "crumple" as it was vacuumed out of a patient's uterus in September.

Any fool would realize that it was a living being - except for the fools that deny against all truth that it is.

Every school child should have to see at least one filmed abortion.

Imagine if schools required a showing of that rather than Al Gore’s alarmist fantasies.

That's why the liberals get so irate when people hold signs of aborted babies close to high schools. They KNOW those pictures can change people's minds, just as seeing an ultrasound can.

Since the Obama mafia wants public abortion financing, they should be televised on PBS.

This is the result of all those people praying for the end of this holocaust. (I’m Catholic and I’ll attribute it to the millions praying the Rosary, tirelessly, others will feel differently.)

Now you know WHY Planned Parenthood REFUSES to allow an ultrsound to be in their facility and VIEWED before an abortion.

As much as I wish this photo is real, it can't be.

There is too much skin, muscle, tissue, and uterus between the baby and the outside for the imprints of toes to be that clear and precise.

Good post potlatch

Abortion is in those 2000 plus pages of ObamaScare

It is not removed and existing statutes will also mandate illegal aliens are covered too - for everything

Seeing my daughter's ultrasound when she was three months pregnant with our only grandchild made a huge impact on me. There was no question about life beginning at conception.

[(”You lie!” - Joe Wilson)]

I made a ‘you lie’ Joe Wilson gif long ago but was never satisfied with it.

Someone posted a portion of what the bill looks like and it is gobbledeegook, whatever, and you can’t make sense even of a small portion if you aren’t a lawyer.

You are right. I posted that years ago and was firmly rebuked by man and wife Freepers, one of which was a doctor. It is not ‘real’ but is effective.

This is a photo shop photo. It isn’t real, but it does communicate a truth — the baby in the womb is alive and deserves life.

This photo is art to make a point.

Obama thinks a baby is punishment. The inference is that “unwanted humans” are trash that must be destroyed.

That is why one of his Czars was mentored by Harrison Brown who thinks of over-populated humans as “maggots.”

“The Challenge of Man’s Future,” by Harrison Brown.

[A] substantial fraction of humanity today is behaving as if it would like to create such a world. It is behaving as if it were engaged in a contest to test nature’s willingness to support humanity and, if it had its way, it would not rest content until the earth were covered completely and to a considerable depth with a writhing mass of human beings, much as a dead cow is covered with a pulsating mass of maggots.

“I am Catholic and recall praying for the fall of communism in Russia. It seemed to happen but looks like it is resurrecting all over the place now”

You did the right thing! The world will go it’s own way though when it wants and ultimately will choose to fight against God. That does not mean that prayer will not win battles in the meantime and we know God wins in the end!

Keep Praying

"Every school child should have to see at least one filmed abortion."

NO. Some things are too graphic and too traumatic for kids to see. There is no point in inflicting psychological abuse on children to fight abortion.

Suggestions such as that don't help our cause.

Leave the kids alone.

I will agree so long as this is limited to high school students. Children of lower grades should not be subjected to this kind of reality, IMO.

Considering what goes on today, though, some may believe middle school students can handle and benefit from viewing an actual abortion. Should parents be consulted for permission to do this?

Of course it's not an actual photograph. It was posted to make the point that within a short amount of time, a baby in the womb quickly develops into a recognizable human being which began at his/her conception

I don't know if you are referring to the ages of kids or all kids, say those under 18. Whichever, I'll go along with your reasoning that we don't want to traumatize anyone.

The other side of the coin could be that a teenage girl, and maybe a boy, will end up traumatized to some degree for the rest of their lives when they eventually grasp the facts of their decision and cannot change it.

[Well you are a wonderful example to me!]

Bedtime Mel, I say all my ‘involved’ prayers at bedtime. Habit of a lifetime. And, I try not to pray for myself, just “Thy will be done”.

My parents knelt on the sides of their bed to pray every night. That made a big impression on me when I was young.
