Publisher's Description

Retailers Choice Award winner, 2012
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 Abby’s 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.

In the 24 chapters of unPlanned, Abby Johnson and Cindy Lambert share Johnson's life before, during, and after her time as the director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas. Psalm 139:13 says, "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb," and talks about the sanctity of human life. unPlanned certainly addresses this concept and other faith-related matters.

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

Publisher's Weekly

When Johnson quit her job as the director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas, the media went wild; lawsuits were filed; prolife advocates rejoiced. Now this former clinic director reveals the details of her dramatic move from abortion rights advocate to "the right side of the fence" and the prolife movement. Johnson began as a volunteer, moving through the ranks until becoming director of the Bryan, Tex., clinic. Then she witnessed an ultrasound-guided abortion, and she changed. "I was taking a new stand, beginning a new life," she says of her move to the other side. This emotional account reveals Johnson's remarkable journey through prochoice thinking, two abortions, her love/hate relationship with prolife advocates outside the clinic, and her eventual understanding of abortion. Prolife advocates will salivate over her story, abortion rights advocates will be skeptical, but those who oppose abortion will find inspiration, education, and emotion. Johnson offers a well-planned, well-written account that will touch nerves on both sides of the issue. (Jan.)Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.

    This story shows how easy it is to get caught up on the wrong side even if you have been raised in a Christian home. It also shows how God can use these negative experiences for His glory. It shows a lot about God's grace & mercy in the world of abortion. The author Abby was recruited as a college student to Volunteer for Planned Parenthood on the pretense of helping women & decreasing abortions. Eventually, it leads her to a paid position & a director of a clinic that indeeds help women with family planning & health issue but also does abortions. Eventually she is told that abortions must increase to help increase revenue for Planned Parenthood. Abby must then choose between right & wrong. She must face a legal battle when she leaves & faces betrayal from trusted friends.

    Abby weaves bio info into discussion of abortion and Planned Parenthood. She shows the value of people who look at the individuals involved in all sides of the battle, not the normal political anger.

    This 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

    I loved this book. It has helped me in my own life. I have not had an abortion but am very pro-life. I think this is a must read for anyone. If you take the principles of what Abby went through and apply them to your life it will help you through a tough time.
