Ex-Planned Parenthood Clinic Director Turned Pro-Life Activist Aims to Help Other Abortion Industry Workers

( – More than 6,000 people took part in a webcast on Monday to launch a program to help people who want to leave their jobs in the abortion industry.
The program is a new, nonprofit ministry, “And Then There Were None,” and is the brainchild of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director who left her post in 2009 after witnessing a 13-week-old unborn baby die during an ultra-sound guided abortion.
Johnson wrote a book about the challenge of defecting from a powerful organization like Planned Parenthood, “Unplanned: The Dramatic True Story of a Former Planned Parenthood Leader’s Journey Across the Life Line.”
Now she wants to help others who have had a similar change of heart and fear repercussions from their former employer, like the failed attempt by Planned Parenthood to take legal action against Johnson.
“If you defect from our organization, if you betray us, if you leave us then this could be you sitting in a courtroom having to defend yourself,” Johnson said was the message Planned Parenthood was sending. “And for a lot of people, that’s very, very scary.”
The mission of “And then There Were None” is described as “No abortion clinic workers, no abortion clinics, no abortions.”
