“Planned Parenthood often turns a blind eye to sexual abuse and trafficking.”

February 16, 2011 – Today Live Action announced the addition of Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood director and employee of eight years, to the Live Action team as Chief Research Strategist.

“Abby Johnson has seen the abuses inside Planned Parenthood with her own eyes and confirms the danger its clinics pose to women and young girls,” stated Live Action President Lila Rose. “She is a courageous trailblazer despite Planned Parenthood’s desperate attempts to attack her and silence the truth. We are thrilled and very thankful to have Abby join our team and are confident that her first-hand experience, conviction and guidance will provide invaluable counsel to Live Action as we advance our common goal of protecting women and children from the abuses of Planned Parenthood.”

Author of the new book “Unplanned,” Johnson worked and volunteered for Planned Parenthood for eight years until October of 2009 when she witnessed a 13-week old baby in an ultrasound-guided abortion lose the fight for its life in the womb. She is now a pro-life advocate. Since her conversion of heart, Johnson has also confirmed that the alarming incidents revealed by Live Action’s undercover investigations are not isolated incidents.

“I can tell you from experience that Planned Parenthood often turns a blind eye to sexual abuse and trafficking – what you see in Live Action’s videos is not a rare occurrence. But ignorance is no defense, especially when it has turned their clinics into a safe haven for those who sexually exploit women and girls. This is not a training problem so much as it is an ideology problem.  I am humbled and eager to begin this partnership with Live Action so that together we can expose the serious harm Planned Parenthood poses to the most vulnerable among us.”

Live Action has previously released more than a dozen hidden camera videos from ten states. This body of visual evidence shows several alarming patterns of illegal Planned Parenthood activities including the willingness to aid and abet the sex trafficking of young girls, the cover-up of sexual abuse of minors, the skirting of parental consent laws, citing unscientific and fabricated medical information to manipulate women to have abortions, and Planned Parenthood’s willingness to accept donations earmarked to abort African-American babies.

    Abby Johnson on board ! Everyone help this organization. Give what you can. Help STOP THE MURDER of the littleones.

    I struggle with why I see on TV babies being glorified by products for sale or doctors who can operate on unborn babies, fast-food kid meals featuring whatever toy this month and kids are so great and babies are so precious, but then, there's what seems like a paralel universe of baby murder done without hesitation and without remorse. Anyone notice the baby photos of the Planned-Parenthood employee helping the man posing as a "pimp"? I assume it was her office and her desk. She's a mom, she admitted as much in the video, and she can still just ever so enthusiastically give directions where he can have his 14 or 15-year-olds get their abortions! Makes me sick. Is is all really about money? Has Satan got such a hold on this world that people love or hate children based on what pays the mortgage??

  • apapnhs

    Would a doctor be just as likely to destroy babies at a P.P. clinic as to save them at a hospital that provides neo-natal care based on which side his bread was buttered on?? Any views? I'm trying to understand in my mind whether it is all about money or if there's doctors out there who just hate babies. "Beam Me Up Scottie" from Abby Johnson's book, "unPLANNED". Golly, that really sounds like flippant or smug distain for the baby he was about to destroy mixed with a bit of amusement coming from a Dr. Makes my skin crawl.

      I'm not defending them, but for most doctors, I think that they've been trained to disconnect from their emotions when they prep for the operation. I think that in their minds, the thing that they pull apart every day is not the same as the child they see when their own wife has an ultrasound. Maybe in the beginning, they have a hard time, but convince themselves that they're "helping women". That's just my humble opinion….
      Maybe liberty_girl_wi would have some insight on this?

      • apapnhs

        “Beam me up Scottie” implies, in my opinion, some sort of enjoyment. Sounds like banter. I just don't have words right now. Just got to pray.—

        It’s a combination of money, “disconnect” and other factors but mostly it’s based on ideology. History has taught us over and over the nightmare of ideology trumping humanity. Abortion is just another tragic example where ideology, in this case “a woman’s right to choose” has become more important than the “right” to life itself….
