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, crossed the line to join the Coalition for Life.
Unplanned is a heartstopping 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-have for anyone who cares about the life-versus-rights debate and helping women who face crisis pregnancies.

Increased my Understanding
My greatest take-away from this book was the insight and understanding it gave me toward people who work in the abortion industry. I have been praying on the sidewalks in front of abortion centers for 18 years, but the people who work in the centers have been a mystery to me for the most part. Abby gave me a look inside their world and inspired in me greater feelings of compassion and understanding for them.
Abby Clark has a youthful vivacious voice that sounds like the young college student with a heart for helping others that Abby Johnson was.
The description of how Abby Johnson felt when she saw the ultrasound abortion, her account of the day she left Planned Parenthood, and her story of suffering through a medical abortion all were riveting and revealing moments.
I am so very glad I heard this story. It has made me a better pro-life advocate with a deeper and more heartfelt longing to reach out to everyone hurt by abortion, including those who work in abortion centers. There are really no "enemies" in this culture war, only victims who need understanding, love and healing.
Amazing story, very well read
The reader did a spectacular job reading this book in an enthusiastic, lively, heart-wrnenching but not overly dramatic way. The book was very well-written, and presents one woman's story about her life within Planned Parenthood and then out of it.
I like how the author presents the story with compassion and understanding for both sides. It is a contentious issue, and people often forget that both sides believe what they believe because they want the best for women. They just come at it from different perspectives.
Abby performs Abby Johnson best. She does a great job just being natural.
Yes. I didn't want to stop listening. I only did to go to sleep!
