Director of Texan abortion center quits after viewing ultrasound...

Bryan, TX ( -- The director of a Texas-based Planned Parenthood has resigned her position saying that she has had a change of heart on abortion. The development highlights the powerful results ultrasounds have in convincing people of the humanity of the unborn child and the need to oppose abortions. (So an advance in science, and it's ready availability, prove the humanity of the unborn. This runs counter to too many mindsets that seem to equate our relative technological advancement over "primitive" times as justification for devaluing human life. The mindset I refer to acknowledges, "Oh sure, back when mankind was ignorant of the finer biological nuances it was an accepted thing that a fetus was human. But we're so much more advanced/sophisticated than that.")

Abby Johnson had been the director of the Planned Parenthood center in this college town, that is home to Texas A&M University, until she turned in her resignation on October 6.

She tells KBTX that seeing an ultrasound instantaneously prompted her to quit.

"I just thought I can't do this anymore, and it was just like a flash that hit me and I thought that's it," she said.

In the interview, Johnson admitted that Planned Parenthood doesn't make its money on promoting contraception or family planning, but through abortion. (What a shocker! Next we'll hear that the Emperor has no clothes.)

"It seemed like maybe that's not what a lot of people were believing any more because that's not where the money was. The money wasn't in family planning, the money wasn't in prevention, the money was in abortion and so I had a problem with that," she admitted.

She also told KBTX she was told to bring in more women for abortions -- something that contradicted her Episcopalian upbringing. (Recruit more women for abortions? Isn't that contrary to the whole concept of "choice"? Seems a bit coercive to me.)

"I feel so pure in heart (since leaving). I don't have this guilt, I don't have this burden on me anymore that's how I know this conversion was a spiritual conversion," she said.

Johnson said she will now work with the Coalition For Life, the pro-life group that operates locally and has a building down the street from the abortion business. She has been meeting with the coalition's executive director, Shawn Carney, and been seen outside the Planned Parenthood helping women find alternatives. (So this isn't just a case of "burn out" in a stressful occupation, it's a conversion of heart.)

KBTX indicates Planned Parenthood officials have hit both Johnson and the pro-life group with restraining orders requiring them not to disclose information about the abortions done at its facility. (What sort of information?)

Rochelle Tafolla, a Planned Parenthood spokesperson, said, "We regret being forced to turn to the courts to protect the safety and confidentiality of our clients and staff, however, in this instance it is absolutely necessary." (Hmm. Isn't that safety and confidentiality already protected by laws on the books? When I worked at a bariatric treatment center a few years back we were formally trained on those things. Even building maintenance personnel like yours truly were required to keep our mouths shut. So what would NOT be covered by those laws? Is Lila Rose available for travel to Texas?)

That Johnson would admit that Planned Parenthood is more accurately described as an abortion business doesn't surprise pro-life advocates. (Or anyone with two brain cells working in series.)

The Planned Parenthood Federation of America released its annual report for fiscal year 2007-2008 and it showed the nation's largest abortion business is getting bigger. (Babykilling for fun and profit, especially profit. It's all about the Benjamins.)

According to Planned Parenthood's latest report, abortions increased to 305,310 abortions up from 289,750 in 2006.

That 5.3 percent increase came at a time when the Guttmacher Institute, it's former research arm, showed abortions were at near-historic lows. (Mark Twain said, "There are lies, damned lies and statistics.")

Looking at Planned Parenthood data from 1997 to the present, the increase in government funding corresponds with an increase in the number of abortions.

In 1997, Planned Parenthood did about 160,000 abortions and received approximately $160 million in total taxpayer funding from various levels of government. (And that taxpayer funding is all the justification needed for prolifers to be the "nosy busybodies" many proaborts accuse us of. Take away my tax dollars for killing your kid and then we'll talk about nosing into other people's affairs. Until then, STFU!) Both the number of abortions and the amount of money received from government, supposedly for family planning to reduce abortions, has doubled since then.

Planned Parenthood also says it helped just under 11,000 women in 2007 with prenatal care and pregnancy help services.

Yet, prenatal care and adoption referrals resulted for only 5 percent of the total services provided to women in 2007 while abortions accounted for 95 percent of the services that year, according to Planned Parenthood's own figures. (Dispensing the Pill isn't quite as lucrative as killing children.)

Keep in mind that abortion statistics don't count those women who take the Plan B "emergency contraceptive," which acts as an abortifacient if a baby was conceived. Many doctors give these out like candy ahead of time so that women can already have one on hand in case they "have an accident." Because of this, I wonder how many more babies are being killed.

Mike, I always forget that damned "Plan B" pill.
