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, walked across the road 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 Abbys story from both sides of the abortion clinic property line, this book is a must-read for anyone who cares about the life versus rights debate and helping women who face crisis pregnancies.
The book begins with an ultrasound-guided abortion, providing a graphic view of the process. Johnson tells of volunteering at Planned Parenthood as a young adult. In this story she shares her education, career, and family, but also delves into deeper issues such as her beliefs, secrets, and desires. Slowly, Johnson realizes truths about herself and the organization she works for, and she decides to leave. Through it all, the reader is able to get a brief look at both Planned Parenthood and the Coalition for Life, a pro-life organization near Johnson's clinic. Serious topics and ideas are studied, establishing that in this broken world there are seldom black and white issues, but many gray ones.
Whereas unPlanned clearly reveals the importance of trusting God's timing and purpose, one cannot read it expecting answers on major issues (finances, long-range psychological problems) involving the reproductive rights of women. While there were still many complicated elements left unaddressed, other details are at times repetitive. In this well-written book, readers come alongside Johnson during her difficult and beautiful journey. Rachelle Bontreger, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

susanAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Eye-opening!April 15, 2012susanAge: 55-65Gender: femaleMeets Expectations: 5This book really opened my eyes to the point where I called my local pro-life clinic, and signed up as a volunteer. I even participated in a March for Life, and I used to be pro-choice.
Everyone should read this book. There are so many lies and half truths out there, and we can't rely on the media to tell us what is really going on with abortion clinics. Thanks, Abby
