Introduction by David Bereit, 40 Days for Life
Foreword by Fr. Frank Pavone Priests for Life
Publisher's Note by Fr. Joseph Fessio, S.J.
Abby Johnson quit her job in October 2009. That simple act became a national news story because Abby was the director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas who, after participating in her first actual abortion procedure, walked across the road to join the Coalition for Life.
Unplanned is a heart stopping personal drama of life-and-death encounters, a courtroom battle, and spiritual transformation that speaks hope and compassion into the political controversy that surrounds this issue. Telling Abby's story from both sides of the abortion clinic property line, this book is a must-read for anyone who cares about the life versus rights debate and helping women who face crisis pregnancies.
In the pages of Unplanned, you'll also discover:
- What Abby found so attractive about the mission and goals of Planned Parenthood
- The personal secret that Abby kept buried for years
- The things she'd believed and told patients that she discovered not to be true
- An insider's perspective on Planned Parenthood's practices as well as the heartfelt but misguided efforts of some radical antiabortion activists
- The courage and resilience she's seen on both sides of the fence-from staff members to clients in crisis to prayerful volunteers
Changing Sides (DVD)
How a Pro-life Presence Changed the Heart of a Planned Parenthood Director
Can hearts really be changed on the issue of abortion?
This film tells the powerful true story of the conversion of a dedicated Planned Parenthood director to a leading Pro-life Activist. Abby Johnson was the director of the abortion facility that was the launching pad of the bold new pro-life effort - 40 Days for Life.
Abby believed that she was helping women by working for the nation's largest abortion operation, Planned Parenthood. She quickly rose in the ranks to become the director of an abortion facility and was even given an "Employee of the Year" award.
But one Fall morning everything changed.
Abby suddenly she found herself on the other side of the fence, facing the truth about abortion. The real question now was, in her time of crisis, what would she do and who would help her?
This film reveals what happens when people pray, fast, sacrifice, love their enemies and take a stand on the most controversial issue of our time - abortion. Fences come down, hearts change, and the love of God shines light in the darkest, most unexpected places. And the evil of abortion is exposed and defeated.
The film includes exclusive interviews with those Abby encountered while she was on both sides of the fence including - the activists who prayed for her daily, the secular media who broke the big story of her conversion, the attorney who won the massive lawsuit that Planned Parenthood tried to silence her with and more.
Plus great "bonus" material featuring Fr. Frank Pavone, David Bereit, Shawn Carney, Peter Kreeft and former abortion provider Carol Everett!
