Planned Parenthood Director Quits After Watching Abortion on Ultrasound
Foxnews ^ | 11/3/2009 | Staff

Posted on 11/03/2009 3:49:41 AM PST by Red in Blue PA

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.

'When I was working at Planned Parenthood I was extremely pro-choice," Johnson told FoxNews.com. But after seeing the internal workings of the procedure for the first time on an ultrasound monitor, "I would say there was a definite conversion in my heart ... a spiritual conversion."

I have always contended that Fox News is a moderate news channel, that a truly conservative news outlet would show these procedures non-stop one week before a crucial congressional vote on say partial birth abortion. Imagine the number of conversions then.

Good for her, but why didn't she watch it 8 years ago?

There's 8 years worth of fathers who had no say in what became of their babies who'd probably like few minutes with her.

It has. PP has filed a protection order against her and the right to life group. They say she will do irreparable harm to them with the information she has. They are not in a good position. Everytime they ding her they about PP.

This is what angers the left. When people actually witness the truth of abortion through whatever media is available, photos, videos etc the abortionists know that people with a conscience will turn towards the light.

I hope that this young lady becomes a powerful advocate for the pro-life cause.

I hope that God uses her to do his work.

You can’t change the past, you can change the future. See the parable of “The Prodigal Son” for details.

I don’t know what she physically looked like before, but I thought she was beautiful because now she has a conviction (is that the right word) that she is doing the right thing. Or maybe more a like an epiphany. Maybe there is a peace about her.

This is not the first time this kind of conversion has happened. Most notably, of course, was ‘Jane Roe’ of Roe v.
Wade, real name Norma McCorvey, who was in fact a lesbian.
She got converted to the pro-life side after being manipulated (and hidden) by her ‘protectors’ on the pro-choice, ‘feminist’ side who turned out to be untrustworthy hypocrites. Norma’s story could not stay hidden forever, but just how interested was the MSM in it. Probably 90% of the country could not tell you who the real “Roe” was , or that she became stridently pro-life.

Abortionists are not Doctors, they are mass murderers.

Did you ever meet a mother who introduced her son as “My son the abortion Doctor?” No. And you won’t either.

The infant is brutally dismembered while it's still alive. If the baby is lucky, it's head will get torn off first to end the pain.

The left claims it doesn't believe in torturing terrorists who murder others, but they have no problem doing it themselves to the most innocent and defenseless members of our society. It appears the terrorists and the abortionists have so much in common, they're soul mates.

Sadly, I think that the fathers of most of those babies were probably the most coercive factor in causing thoses mothers to get the abortions. What can be said in defense of any man who would mate with a pro-abortion woman?

Oh, but women have the right to murder their babies, didn’t you hear?

With readily available, and so many different kinds of birth control, there is no reason for a women to get pregnant anymore, hasn’t been for a long time. Rape victims can get the day after pill.

Abortion has become another form of birth control, and it’s just evil.

That’s right.

Look at how many Humane Society and other animal advocate commercials bombard us with emotive soundtracks and slow-zoom shots of dogs and cats that look pathetic because of abuse, injury or starvation.

I am all for the compassionate care of animals, but can you imagine the outrage and uproar from the left if those same soundtracks were put to video of human fetuses being put to death through legal abortion? Or even fetal still shots from ultrasounds that suggested the process of abortion?

Actually it sounds like a good theme for a YouTube video. Who knows — if it saves even one child from the trash can at Planned Parenthood....

“There’s 8 years worth of fathers who had no say in what became of their babies who’d probably like few minutes with her.”

There are also 8 years worth of fathers who refused to take responsibility for their child, threw a check at their girlfriend and told their girlfriends to “take care of it”. I am glad this woman came to her senses.

It would be a good idea to present a human abortion video as though it were the abortion of puppies. Imagine the outrage....

Yes, kind of a sleight-of-eye trick... right at the end it's revealed that it's about humans not animals.

How about this...

Starts with a girl working at an animal shelter. Brief shots of her caring passionately for injurd animals. Later she gets off work. Shown walking into a Planned Parenthood clinic. Then a shot of her on a table with her legs in stirrups. Then a shot of a doctor holding up a small baby by the leg. Then a loud 'clunk' sound as it drops into a trash can. Fade into message.

Those 3D ultrasounds are AMAZING. Just simply AMAZING.

God works through us all - doctors, technology geeks, cleaners, teachers, food servers.

Suppose you undertake a genealogical project and find, four generations back, a young farm girl from a poor family who gives birth to two children out of wedlock, and then hires herself as housekeeper to a succession of families to support those children.

As you trace the generations following this young woman, you find that each of her children grows up, marries well, has large families of their own. As you study their lives, you find they became honorable citizens in their communities whose newspaper obtuaries extolled their character and loving Christian demeanour, were outstanding contributors to the life of their communities, and produced almost two dozen children between them who went out and produced other large families.

As a matter of fact, the economic wellbeing of the communities where they settled were enriched by their contributions to the wealth, the arts, and the education of those communities.

By the fourth and fifth generations, those two little babies who were born to that one young woman first became a few, then hundreds of outstanding leaders in their various communities, all within a hundred years or so of the plight of this young, unwed mother.

Then, you contemplate the matter, taking into account implications of legal rulings in the 1970's which spawned an industry of massive public and private forces which, had they existed when that young woman faced her seemingly hopeless situation, might have "counseled" her to make a decision which would have deprived the nation of these outstanding leaders.

Such contemplation puts the matter of what goes on routinely in clinics in America into a whole new perspective. It is not one child whose life and liberty are "destroy(ed" Jefferson. It is all the generations that follow!

Sobering thought, isn't it?
