Abby Johnson


Abby Johnson Former Director of Planned Parenthood

Abby Johnson has always been fiercely determined to help women in need. This desire is what led Abby to a career with Planned Parenthood, our nation’s largest abortion provider, and caused her to flee the organization, becoming an outspoken advocate for the pro-life movement.

During her eight years with Planned Parenthood, Abby quickly rose through the organization’s ranks and became a clinic director. However, Abby became increasingly disturbed by what she witnessed. Abortion was a product Planned Parenthood was selling, not an unfortunate necessity they were fighting to decrease. Still, Abby loved the women that entered her clinic and her co-workers. Despite a growing unrest within her, she stayed on and strove to serve women in crisis.

All of that changed on September 26, 2009 when Abby was asked to assist with an ultrasound-guided abortion. She watched in horror as a 13 week baby fought for, and ultimately lost, its life at the hand of the abortionist.

At that moment, she fully realized what abortion actually was and what she had dedicated her life to. As it washed over Abby, a dramatic transformation had occurred. Desperate and confused, Abby sought help from a local pro-life group. She swore that she would begin to advocate for life in the womb and expose abortion for what it truly is.

Planned Parenthood did not take Abby’s departure sitting down. The organization is fully aware the workers who leave are their greatest threat. They took immediate action to silence Abby with a gag order and brought her to court. The lawsuit was quickly seen as the sham it was and it was ultimately thrown out of court.

The media was, and continues to be, intensely interested in Abby’s story as well as her continued efforts to advocate for the unborn and help clinic workers escape the abortion industry. She is a frequently requested guest on Fox News and a variety of other shows. She is also the author of the nationally best-selling book, Unplanned, which chronicles both her experiences within Planned Parenthood and her dramatic exit.

Today, Abby travels across the globe sharing her story, educating the public on pro-life issues, advocating for the unborn, and reaching out to abortion clinic staff who still work in the industry. She is the founder of And Then There Were None, a ministry designed to assist abortion clinic workers in transitioning out of the industry. To date, this ministry has helped over 600 workers leave the abortion industry.

Abby lives in Texas with her husband and eight precious children.

Event Reviews

"Abby hit it out of the park with her presentation to our audience. Powerful!!"

— Wyandotte Pregnancy Clinic

"Abby delivered an outstanding keynote. There were times of silence when you could hear a pin drop in the banquet hall. She was captivating and convicting at the same time that I believe led hearts to give sacrificially."

— A Woman's Choice, FL

"We heard from many that Abby was the best speaker we’ve ever had! We have been told through tears that they had no idea what Planned Parenthood did, and are signing up to volunteer...She is a great speaker- knows when to lighten the topic with humor, and was honest and transparent and humble. We were very happy with her as our speaker. We heard of two couples that had decided beforehand what to donate, and both couples looked at each other and said “Double it.”

— Fayette Pregnancy Resource Center, GA

"WOW! If we can keep the momentum that Abby gave not only to our banquet event, but the momentum she gave our entire community of supporters (new & old), we will be able to accomplish great things and hopefully transform our client's lives in ways we never imagined possible. This has by far been the most successful banquet we have ever had making it well worth the investment!"

— Family Life Services Clinic, MI

​"We absolutely loved Abby. This banquet was our largest attended and was reflected in the giving. I would highly recommend her to other centers!"

— Pregnancy Center of Frederick

"Abby Johnson did a fantastic job and those words do not adequately describe how inspiring she was. All the feedback we have received has been very positive. Her presentation was clear and focused. We would highly recommend Abby to speak wherever she is asked."

— Sav-a-Life of Dekalb Co, AL

"Her (Abby's) attitude in getting to Shreveport was inspirational. Her presentation was riveting, clear and compelling for our audience. We raised more than we have in the past 3 years!"

— Mary's House of Louisiana

"Abby's story is powerful but she's also an unbeatable communicator. She was our speaker for 2017 and 2018 and increased the amount raised both times from the previous year."

— Women's Choice Resource Center, Fort Worth, TX

"Abby has by far been our greatest fundraiser, and we thank her for delivering a powerful message to a crowd of over 700 people!"

— Sarasota Medical Pregnancy Center

“Abby did an excellent job!  We had a record number of guests and the largest donation from one event ever in our 32 year history!  We could not have been any more pleased with her presentation and the response.  So thankful for her courage and her willingness to share her story so that God can use all of it for HIS GOOD!”
