Former Planned Parenthood director tells her story.

Next Tuesday, January 11th, Ignatius Press will launch a new book by former Planned Parenthood director and 2008 “employee of the year” Abby Johnson.

Unplanned is a behind-closed-doors expose of one of the biggest providers in the abortion industry, and a testimony of how Mrs. Johnson went from directing an abortion facility to working for the prolife cause. (And not just any abortion facility but the place at which the first 40 Days for Life campaign was launched in 2004).

As expected, Planned Parenthood isn’t taking this lightly. They filed a lawsuit to shut her up — but had their case dismissed.

Get all the details here, and purchase Unplanned from Ignatius Press at 35% off. You can also read the first chapter of Abby’s story in its entirety.

Abby also blogs at:

Please join her prayer campaign for the conversion of Dr. LeRoy Carhart, one of the most experienced second & third trimester abortion providers.

More to explorer


  1. She is going to be speaking at a 25th Anniversary banquet for the crisis pregnancy center, of which I have the honor of being the president of the board of directors, in my county later this year. Insider testimony like hers is a damning indictment of how the abortion industry in this country is solely about literal blood money.

  2. Abby- you tell em….expose the inner workings of Planned Parenthood. For those interested , i would also recommend this documentary which also exposes Planned Parenthood- called- Maafa21…pass the word, http://www.maafa21com

  3. Hmmmmm Lets see. It took the abortions of two of her unborn children and eight years to “smell the coffee.” While I applaud her decision to quit, whatever her motives, I think I’ll wait another eight years before I buy her book. After all, her next one may be an expose of 40 days for Life…The organization she cited specific examples of lying. But no matter, the fall out is that many children will have life, and how ever it comes about, I am grateful.

  4. Antonio,

    After reviewing her own writings and the fruits of her current pro-life work to date (engaging and seeking the conversion of others involved in the industry) I see no question the integrity of her conversion.

    “It took the abortions of two of her unborn children and eight years to “smell the coffee.”

    I suppose one could snidely remark that it took “thousands of abortions” before the spiritual conversion of Dr. Bernard Nathanson, founder of NARAL.

    However, when a sinner is convicted and embraces the truth, I simply see this as a cause for rejoicing.

  5. “However, when a sinner is convicted and embraces the truth, I simply see this as a cause for rejoicing.”

    Remember we are all sinners and never stop sinning. So unless she has reached sainthood, I wouldn’t get all choked up about this sort of thing. She wouldn’t be the first opportunist who wraps themselves in the bible.
    I don’t say she is, nor do i judge her as you have done, rather, I don;t judge, I wait and see. But for now, the consequence is that children live. That is a reason for rejoicing.

  6. “Remember we are all sinners and never stop sinning.”

    Of course there is no denying this. I just see no reason to impugn and cast doubt on her motives with speculation about lying and conspiracies.

    We will both know by her actions and the fruits of those actions — and thus far her actions have been laudable.
