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.
