You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (John 8:32)
I am the way, the truth and the life. (John 14:6)
These words of Jesus recently came home to Abby Johnson who was, until recently, the director of a Planned Parenthood abortuary in Bryan, Texas. This town, by the way, is where the first 40 Days for Life campaign was conducted by David Bereit and some others.
After witnessing a sonogram of an abortion, she realized that she could no longer faciliate abortions; her words indicate an almost instantaneous conversion. She is now joining other Christians in intercession against the sin of abortion.
Naturally, Planned Parenthood, blood-sucking leeches that they are, seek to legally gag Ms. Johnson from talking. The truth hurts, and Planned Parenthood is no doubt quaking in its boots because the truth will hurt their bank accounts!
Our Lord tells us that the angels in heaven rejoice over one repenant sinner, and we suspect that there was much joy when Ms. Johnson opened herself to God's truth and forgiveness. I join my colleagues at Les Femmes who caution pro-life activists to give Ms. Johnson some time to come fully to terms with Jesus and her past, to stabilize her relationship with Jesus and other Christian friends and to iron out other details of her life.
We pray that Ms. Johnson's example, as well as those of other former abortionists, will inspire current abortionists to take honest stock of their lives, their prospects for eternity - and to turn from their sin and convert to being followers of Jesus Christ.
