In her last year with the clinic she was having more difficulty justifying her work. But it was not until an afternoon in September 2009 that Johnson came face to face with the reality of abortion. It would no longer be a simple matter of numbers on paper or a discussion in a management meeting.
Never had she been called into the procedure room to help with an abortion. In the past she had been in the room to hold a patient's hand or give counsel to patients during the process. But on this day the visiting abortionist was performing an ultrasound-guided abortion, an unprecedented procedure in her clinic. Johnson would witness -- in real time -- the life of a 13-week-old baby taken. She held the ultrasound probe on the woman's abdomen so the doctor could see the baby and the instrument as he did his work. The procedure was visible on a monitor.
The shock of witnessing an abortion in progress made Johnson question everything she had believed and advocated about the work of Planned Parenthood.

Two weeks later she resigned her position as director of the clinic and walked to the offices of Shawn Carney of the Coalition for Life.
It was in God's timing that she left the abortion industry, Johnson said. God worked through the compassionate prayers and actions of those who adamantly opposed her work but who showed her Christ's love.
Cue the crickets.
It sort of reminded me of Saul/Paul’s “conversion”. And it was actually from the foundation of his previous work that he could so powerfully springboard into his work for Christ.
It may be true here to one degree or another as well.
A powerful testimony.
What is a amazing is that according to the Left, something as nebulous as “ManMadeGlobalWarming” is settled science, while something so OBVIOUS as when life begins is still debated...
This lady needs to get her little old self down to the Right to Life March in Washington and speak!!
She’s definitely going to be at events related to the March, but I don’t know if she’s scheduled to be a speaker yet.
I wish I could get my butt down to Washington. Next year I’ll go with my cousin from Jersey. He goes with a group.
She’ll be there. Over 20,000 people cued into her webcast unveiling of her book.
It’s bigger than you think.
