Publisher's Summary

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

What did you like best about this story?

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.

What does Abby Clark bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Abby Clark has a youthful vivacious voice that sounds like the young college student with a heart for helping others that Abby Johnson was.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

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.

Any additional comments?

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

What did you love best about Unplanned?

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.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

Which character – as performed by Abby Clark – was your favorite?

Abby performs Abby Johnson best. She does a great job just being natural.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I didn't want to stop listening. I only did to go to sleep!

Life-changing story!

Abby's story although much different than mine it is much the same. What an encouragement, supportive, and accountable for the need & want to stay in the race. Thank you Abby for speaking the truth in love.

wonderful book!

This book is such a wake up call to what Planned Parenthood really cares about. Abby Johnson ' s story is one of true reliance on God and His ability to turn her toward the light!

Both sides

Although it's evident from the very beginning where the author stands, I feel that it still gives the reader a view of both sides. I'd be curious to hear someone's view from within the clinic also. It has helped me understand more my own personal views and for that, I'm grateful. 😊

A Modern Day Saul of Tarsus Experience!

Loved this story! I kept thinking of how Abby's story was so similar to that of Saul of Tarsus--and after having her own Road to Damascus revelation, became a Paul to the Pro-Life Movement.
I love how her story testifies to God's faithfulness in answering prayer of so many faithful believers--they persevered even when it seemed that nothing was happening in the natural. The Lord was at work--doing something beautiful in Abby's life and in the lives of countless others! What a beautiful unfolding of the Lord's perfect perfect plan and perfect timing.
Thank you, Abby, for your courage and obedience to the Lord for doing what you know was the "right thing to do". So encouraging!

Good story. Annoying Voice

Would you try another book from Abby Johnson and/or Abby Clark?

I admire the author for her stance. The reader has a high squeaky voice. Fingernails on the chalkboard.
