A former abortion clinic worker was given a prime-time spot at the Republican National Convention, and the public heard her stark description of abortion and her praise for the pro-life stance of President Donald Trump.
Abby Johnson, who leads the pro-life group And Then There Were None, served as executive director of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Texas until, one day, she was asked to assist in a sonogram abortion and her life changed for good.
“The last thing I saw,” she recalled on day two of the GOP convention, “was a spine twirling around in the mother's womb before succumbing to the force of the suction.”
Johnson’s story was depicted in the film “Unplanned,” and her pro-life group works with abortion clinic workers to help them leave that business and find other work.
Prudence Robertson of the Susan B. Anthony List tells OneNewsNow that Johnson made history.
“It was the first time,” Robertson says, “that someone was able to expose the brutality of abortion on national TV, and Abby Johnson was so courageous in sharing her story in providing the brutal truth about abortion and what it is.”
President Trump once called himself “pro-choice in every respect” in years past, which abortion supporters eagerly point out, but pro-life leaders have witnessed the Trump administration publicly support and defend the pro-life cause.
Pro-life leaders, especially the veterans of Washington, DC, politics, have said past GOP conventions would have never allowed a former Planned Parenthood worker on stage to speak for the unborn.
“I support President Trump,” Johnson said from the podium Tuesday night, “because he’s done more for the unborn than any other president.”
