We last updated you on And Then There Were None, the organization founded by former Planned Parenthood worker Abby Johnson, in June of last year. To read that article, you can click here.
The banner statement of this pro-life ministry is simple: “No abortion clinic workers, no abortion clinics, no abortions. It all starts with the workers.” Since leaving the abortion industry in 2009, and forming this ministry to reach out to other workers, Abby Johnson and her team have helped over 100 people leave their jobs in abortion clinics and start over in a new career. In her August 7 email update, she writes:
“In the past two weeks, we have had five more workers contact us. That brings our total up to 121 workers! While we praise God for this wonderful news, we are also in need of financial help for these workers. A few of these workers are high level employees with Planned Parenthood (yay!) so we are looking at a larger amount of money to help them transition into a new job.”
ATTWN holds periodic healing retreats for these workers (mostly women), who have deep guilt and regret over their part in facilitating the deaths of the unborn. All expenses (about $600 a piece, including travel) are paid for each attendee. This year’s retreat, September 19 through 21, will minister to ten women. They would appreciate your prayers.

With high-ranking Democratic officials listening reverently in the Iowa state capitol, a liberal activist and union official on Wednesday led a prayer for increased funding for abortions, for greater access to abortions, for doctors who perform abortions, and for what she called “the blessing of choice.”
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” –Isaiah 5:20 KJV
Fully 50% of Americans are pro-life, and 41% call themselves pro-choice, according to a Gallup Poll published in May 2012. So what is Planned Parenthood talking about in its new video?
“A majority of Americans believe abortion should remain safe and legal. Many just don’t use the words pro-choice. They don’t necessarily identify as pro-life either. Truth is, they just don’t want to be labeled.”
This all sounds so very open-minded and moderate, doesn’t it? But if the Gallup statistics are accurate, it’s also a bald-faced lie.
In fact, only 9% of the public are not labeling themselves absolutely in one camp or the other. However, a further reading of Gallup results reveals that 52% of the total surveyed do in fact believe that abortion should be legal under certain circumstances. But this is NOT the same as saying they believe “abortion should remain safe and legal,” which implies legal under most or any circumstances (the Planned Parenthood position).
We should be encouraged by the fact that across all three political affiliations, Republican, Democrat and Independent, there are been a significant upswing in the number of respondents who self-identify as “pro-life.” And still more significant still were the responses to this question in the same Gallup Poll:
As evidence of this, below is the eight-zillionth example of the incongruous mental gymnastics the Left has to perform in order to justify abortion to themselves. This ‘Ode to Abortion‘ comes via everyone’s favorite racist, Touré, and is from just this past weekend:
We’ve just passed the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that made abortion legal in this country. And what did the so-called pro-choice movement feel was an appropriate gesture on such a significant occasion? At drawtheline.org, which promotes legislation known as the the Bill of Reproductive Rights, they produced a little video in which a handsome man wishes “Happy Anniversary” to his ‘baby’…he has champagne and a red rose, he smiles seductively. Firelight and soft jazz complete the romantic picture.
Who’s he toasting? The right to an abortion. If that sounds sick, it is. Continue reading →
QUOTE from the article: “…children are not a disease, and poverty isn’t a symptom…”
A short-but-powerful post in defense of having/raising children, which ends up as a tribute to marriage itself. ¡Bravo!
