Do pictures work? Meet Abby Johnson! Today only, get her new book at 35% off!
She was the director of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Bryan, Texas. But she had never seen abortion until one fateful day in September 2009. Her clinic was shorthanded and needed somebody to man the ultrasound machnine. She was asked to lend a hand.
In her new book, unPlanned, available today only at a 35% discount, Abby Johnson tells us what changed her from pro-choice to pro-life:
I could not imagine how the next 10 minutes [i.e., seeing abortion] would shake the foundation of my values and change the course of my life. (page 2)
The image of the tiny body, mangled and sucked away, was replaying in my mind … (page 5)
If she worked at an abortion clinic–even serving as its director–and was ignorant about what abortion is and does, how much more ignorant must our teenagers be, unless we show them the truth?
At a webcast I attended last night, I heard Ms. Johnson describe the process of changing her mind. As we have observed in others, she required a “sink-in” period. Even after she saw abortion, she didn’t become pro-life immediately. She started out by saying, “I’m still pro-choice, but abortion is wrong for me.” A few days later, it was, “I’m still pro-choice, but maybe abortion shouldn’t be legal in all cases. Eventually she realized, “Maybe I’m pro-life.” It’s a process.
Let me encourage you to purchase her book today. It’s important because the first-day sales can determine whether the book shows up on the best-seller list or not, and also whether it is displayed at the front of the bookstore or at the back. The more sales it gets on this first day, the more attention it gets, the more publicity it gets, etc. All the juice means more people buy the book and learn the truth about Planned Parenthood. Get your 35% discount here.
