Planned Parenthood Gag Order On Abby Johnson Denied
According to the Bryan-College Station Eagle, District Judge J.D. Langley dissolved a temporary restraining order against Johnson after concluding that Planned Parenthood’s stated concerns over Johnson revealing security and business information was not enough to warrant the injunction.
The judge also denied a similar request Planned Parenthood directed at the Coalition for Life, the local pro-life organization that started the 40 Days for Life campaign five years ago at the same clinic where Johnson worked.
“When I saw that ultrasound, not only did I say, ‘This is wrong and I will never participate in this again,’ but there was a part of me that said, ‘Not only will I not participate in it again, but I will fight to make sure women don’t have to experience this, that women have better choices,'” she said.
Johnson encouraged the pro-lifers on the call to keep engaging clinic workers, even though their words appear to bear no fruit.
“You are in constant spiritual turmoil when you work in the abortion industry,” said Johnson, noting that, to a clinic worker, a pro-life vigil is “a constant reminder of the reality that you are doing.” “Sometimes the clinic workers may act like they don’t hear you, they may never speak to you … but they can’t turn a deaf ear to what you’re saying,” she continued. “You never know who you’re impacting.”
I’m betting Planned Parenthood doesn’t find this nearly as entertaining as I do. No wonder abortion “rights” supporters get all twisted up about graphic displays of abortion.
Warning to pro-choicers: Abortion is a brutal and violent assault on human life. Seeing it might turn people off.
