BRYAN, Texas (BP)--The director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in southeast Texas quit her job and is supporting a pro-life organization after watching an ultrasound of an abortion.
Abby Johnson, 29, worked at the abortion clinic for eight years and told FoxNews.com she had been "extremely pro-choice" during that time. That all changed in September when she watched an ultrasound of an unborn baby being vacuumed out of a woman's uterus. She quit in early October.
"I just thought I can't do this anymore, and it was just like a flash that hit me, and I thought, 'That's it,'" she told KBTX-TV in Bryan. Johnson added in the interview with FoxNews.com, "I would say there was a definite conversion in my heart ... a spiritual conversion."
The clinic had been the location of a peaceful pro-life prayer vigil by those associated with the nationwide 40 Days for Life initiative this fall. Some participants also fasted.
Johnson, who became the clinic's director two years ago, also said she became disgruntled with Planned Parenthood when officials began pressuring her to get more abortions for the facility to generate more revenue.
"Every meeting that we had was, 'We don't have enough money, we don't have enough money -- we've got to keep these abortions coming,'" Johnson told FoxNews.com. Read More
