Former Gosnell clinic worker seeks help from pro-life organization

A former Planned Parenthood worker and her pro-life organization are reaching out to a former abortion worker for convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell. 

Abby Johnson, who once managed a Planned Parenthood, founded And Then There Were None to reach out to abortion clinic workers who want to leave the industry.

According to Johnson, the Gosnell employee contacted her organization after authorities arrested her, though by then the woman said she was at peace.  

“And that really told us something,” says Johnson, “because we knew that she had been participating in this evil for a long time, and at that point she realized that she had been participating in evil as well.”

Gosnell is serving three life sentences for killing babies born alive during abortions, as well as federal drug sentences, and several of his employees have also been sentenced.

Johnson announced the contact in an email to supporters, and LifeSiteNews.com. reported the incident in a July 16 story on its website.

The former employee is a Christian and Johnson's organization is now helping her on a path toward forgiveness.

“She's actually going to be attending one of our healing retreats that our ministry puts on,” says Johnson, “so we're excited that she'll be part of that.”

In the email, Johnson wrote that the ex-abortion employee is eager to share her pro-life story, “and I can tell you that it is a beautiful story of redemption.”

Johnson established her ministry in 2012. In that short time, she says dozens of abortion workers have received spiritual, legal and financial help from the group.

In May, And Then There Were None held its first-ever Leave the Abortion Industry Day and welcomed five workers who left their jobs.
