Abby Johnson‘s story from abortion provider to pro-life Catholic is pretty amazing. You can read part of it here. Her story of witnessing an abortion through ultra sound is gut wrenching, but the other chilling aspect is the horrible behavior of Planned Parenthood. To put it bluntly, PP is in the abortion business. The more abortions they provide the more money they make. To think that this gruesome business is funded by tax dollars is even more frightening. When Abby left PP they tried to muzzle her and through the courts make sure she didn’t talk about what she had done and seen. So an organization that is all about ‘women’s rights’ and ‘freedom to choose’ and presumably therefore, is also in favor freedom of speech and the rest of the rights we enjoy–goes to court to shut up a former employee.
I’ll be reviewing Abby’s book here in the near future. In the meantime, you can get a copy here.
Don’t imagine that this sort of persecution will end soon. Christians are in a battle with the forces of darkness, and the sooner each one of us realize this and put on the full armor of faith the better.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel.
