  • Planned Parenthood Director Leaves, Has Change of Heart

If people really saw the horror of what an abortion procedure entails, they might come to a similar conclusion. Watching a procudure on ultrasound apparently had enough of an effect on the now former director of Planned Parenthood in Bryan, TX recently to make an impact, a drastic one I might add. She quit her job.

I’m not one for publicly displaying posters of the procedure as some seem intent on doing. I think it is tacky, tasteless and offensive to do so in a public setting. Yet at the same time, it seems we have really neatly packaged it in our society in such a way as to avoid thinking about what it actually is altogether. “Out of sight, out of mind” seems to be the motto as it pertains to this horrific act, and yet it goes on.

This certainly illustrates that people need a heart change above a policy change as it pertains to the abortion debate, though I still certainly advocate for a policy change to be sure.

I would like to add that if someone reading this has had an abortion, there is infinite mercy in the cross of Christ and great forgiveness. We who believe in Christ as our Savior welcome you. Come and be cleansed by His healing power in your heart of hearts. I think that message is not sent enough on top of the chastisement of the policies.

The following are quotes from Abby Johnson, former director of Planned Parenthood in Bryan, TX. The killing of children for the sake of a dollar is the most disturbing side of this. How sick … how is that not a modern form of child sacrifice? In this case, you’re sacrificing babies to the idol of money instead of Baal. It is unfathomable to me that this is tolerated in our society. It is a complete perversion of justice.

When I was working at Planned Parenthood I was extremely pro-choice.”

“Every meeting that we had was, ‘We don’t have enough money, we don’t have enough money — we’ve got to keep these abortions coming.’ It’s a very lucrative business and that’s why they want to increase numbers.”

For them there’s not a lot of money in education. There’s not as much money in family planning as there is abortion.”

The majority of the money was going to the facility.”

… [Johnson] said she got involved with the clinic ‘to help women and … [do] the right thing,’ and the idea of raking in cash seemed to go against what she felt was the mission of the 93-year-old organization.

“Ideally [the] goal as the facility’s director is that your abortion numbers don’t increase,” because “you’re providing so much family planning and so much education that there is not a demand for abortion services. But that was not their goal.”
