How to Quit


The first time Abby Johnson helped an abortion facility worker leave the industry she was speaking at a Hispanic pro-life conference in Los Angeles in 2010. As she walked off the stage a woman was calling her name, “a desperate type of scream,” Johnson recalled. So Johnson walked over to the wire fence and an educator from a local abortion facility fell into her arms, weeping.

The woman’s fiancé, who was pro-life, had brought her to the rally to hear Johnson’s story of resigning as director of a Planned Parenthood operation in Bryan, Texas, after she witnessed an ultrasound showing a 13-week-old unborn child being “crumpled” and disappearing. The day after the rally the woman quit and Johnson eventually helped her find another job at a pregnancy resource center.

Soon more abortion workers began contacting Johnson. “I don’t want to stay,” they would tell her, “but I don’t know how to leave.” For several months Johnson tried to help as many as she could on her own, but it soon overwhelmed her. That led her to start a ministry in June, the first of its kind, called And Then There Were None (ATTWN), which has so far helped 40 abortion workers leave the industry. Johnson is thrilled: “We thought maybe we would help 10 per year.”
