Red-handed: “The money’s not in prevention, it’s in abortion”


Recently Abby Johnson quit her job as director of a Planned Parenthood and instead joined the peaceful group of people persistently praying on the sidewalk outside – The Coalition for Life. It’s more proof that we’re winning the fight for Life. This all happened in Bryan-College Station, home of the Fightin’ Texas Aggies (my alma mater) and the most outstanding Catholic campus ministry in the country. Keep up the great work everyone!

The most telling info from Abby:

According to Johnson, the non-profit was struggling under the weight of a tough economy, and changing it’s business model from one that pushed prevention, to one that focused on abortion.

“It seemed like maybe that’s not what a lot of people were believing any more because that’s not where the money was. The money wasn’t in family planning, the money wasn’t in prevention, the money was in abortion and so I had a problem with that,” said Johnson.

Johnson said she was told to bring in more women who wanted abortions, something the Episcopalian church goer recently became convicted about.

But I thought non-profits didn’t care about making money? And that they were motivated solely by what was good for the person? You know, just like the currently proposed government-run public option (which will currently further fund Planned Parenthood) would be. Right?

Maybe that’s why Planned Parenthood has now also issued a restraining order on Abby.

Very cool! That must have taken a lot of courage to do that. Especially since Planned Parenthood is so up in arms about it now. Praise God for this good news.

A restraining order? Like she would ever want to get *that* close to the place again?
