Leaving the Abortion Industry

Today, April 8, is Exodus 2013 day. Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood director in Bryan/College Station Texas leads the appeal to abortion workers who want to find a way out of that industry. Already 47 clinic workers have left their jobs, with the help of Abby's ministry ATTWN (And Then There Were None).

Abby's thinking is that abortion will end if there are no more people willing to do abortions. As a woman who counselled thousands of women to abort their babies, Abby is now a pro-life advocate for the unborn. Her principal outreach is to her colleagues who continue to work in the abortion trade and she offers them help to leave.

ATTWN doesn't just encourage people to leave these jobs. They provide financial aid, counselling to find other work, and legal counsel if required while making the transition from this line of work to another job. Abby knows that this is necessary since she herself was sued by Planned Parenthood as they attempted to put a "gag order" on her, so that she would not disclose any of what she knew about the inside workings of an abortion clinic.

More power to her and may this ministry be blessed. As one sign says You didn't grow up wanting to work in an abortion clinic. I am sure there are hundreds of women who would gladly leave their jobs in abortion clinics if they could find a way to do so.
