Abby Johnson, the former Planned Parenthood manager who famously left the industry following an intense conversion, is back with a book to followup her bestselling autobiography, “Unplanned”. Her new book is called “The Walls Are Talking: Former Abortion Clinic Workers Tell Their Stories.”
Kathy Schiffer at the Seasons of Grace blog has an extensive writeup and interview with Abby today and provides some insights into the revelations from inside the clinics. She quotes Abby:
“I hope that people who support abortion will pick it up, intending to read it as a critic. I hope that their minds will be opened, their eyes will be opened.
“And I hope that those in the Church will also read it. They’ve heard the message, but what are they doing with it? I hope that those in the church will read it and think, “Oh my gosh!” Because it’s not enough to sit on the sidelines, to sit at home and pray. If your prayer doesn’t move you to action, then I don’t think you have a very serious faith.
“We’ve been wading through the weeds of this movement for 43 years; and that’s because so many in the church have been apathetic. Priests and pastors think that everyone already knows abortion is wrong, so they don’t address it from the pulpit; but out in the pews, a majority of Catholic women are contracepting. So perhaps those in the church are our target audience. You think we shouldn’t be preaching to the choir? Now’s the time to teach the choir how to sing!”
