By Abby Johnson
Contributor Cindy Lambert
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.
