Abby Johnson may have delivered what might be the single most powerful anti-abortion speech in the history of the RNC.
Her speech was compelling and gut wrenching.
Part of what makes Abby Johnson so fascinating is that she was once a leader in Planned Parenthood.
She quickly rose in the ranks, but discovered the horrors of the organization.
During her speech at the RNC, Abby Johnson revealed:
- The racist roots of Planned Parenthood
- That most Planned Parenthood offices are strategically placed in minority neighborhoods
- That workers are given "quotas" of abortions
- That workers joke about dead babies
- And much more

Immediately after Abby Johnson spoke, many people took to Twitter to claim that she gave one of the most prolific and compelling pro-life speeches of all time.
National leaders are celebrating pro-life advocate Abby Johnson’s trailblazing address at the Republican National Convention Tuesday night, one that bared the violence of abortion and the stark choice facing Americans in the upcoming election.
A former Planned Parenthood director-turned-pro-life activist, Johnson shared some of what she experienced during her eight-year tenure working in an abortion clinic:
She related, for example, what she witnessed while assisting a doctor with an abortion that used ultrasound technology:
Nothing prepared me for what I saw on the screen – an unborn baby fighting back, desperate to move away from the suction instrument. And I’ll never forget what the doctor said next: “Beam me up, Scotty.” The last thing I saw was a spine twirling around in the mother’s womb before succumbing to the force of the suction.
Johnson explained that, even for most people who identify as “pro-life,” abortion is still “abstract”:
They can’t even conceive of the barbarity. They don’t know about the Products of Conception room in abortion clinics, where infant corpses are pieced back together to ensure nothing remains in the mother’s wombs or that we joked and called it the “Pieces of Children” room.
But for me, abortion is very real. I know what it sounds like, what it smells like. Did you know that abortion has a smell? I’ve been the perpetrator…to these babies…to these women.
“In her groundbreaking Republican National Convention speech, Abby Johnson courageously exposed the brutal reality of abortion, the lies of Planned Parenthood, and the extreme agenda of Democrats like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris – the most pro-abortion presidential ticket in history,” said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser in a statement.
People were impressed by Johnson's remarks.
She also has more credibility among viewers because she is a woman as well as a former leader of Planned Parenthood.
Despite the fact that she is a woman, the media wasted no time attacking Abby Johnson.
They dug up old tweets (out of context, of course!) and described her speech as graphic.
According to the New York Post:
Abby Johnson — a former Planned Parenthood clinic director who made a sharp turn to pro-life activism — delivered a graphic indictment of abortion at the 2020 Republican National Convention on Tuesday.
“For most people who consider themselves pro-life, abortion is abstract — they can’t even conceive of the barbarity,” Johnson said.
“See, for me, abortion is real. I know what it sounds like; I know what abortion smells like. Did you know that abortion even had a smell?”
Johnson, 39, quit working at a clinic in Bryan, Texas, more than a decade ago after, she claimed, witnessing the abortion of a woman who was 13-weeks pregnant. Reporters have cast doubt on her story over the years, citing a lack of documentation, but she stands by it.
“Nothing prepared me for what I saw on the screen: an unborn baby fighting back, desperate to move away from the suction,” she said.
“The last thing I saw was a spine twirling around in the mother’s womb before succumbing to the force of the suction.”
Johnson now runs And Then There Were None, a group that urges abortion clinic employees to leave, which she founded in 2012.
Johnson took some heat on Twitter earlier Tuesday after Vice News resurfaced a YouTube video the pro-lifer posted in June and later made private. The clip was first reported on by The Daily Caller shortly after it was published.
In the video, Johnson said it would be “smart” for police to racially profile her adopted son, adding that “statistically, my brown son is more likely to commit a violent offense over my white sons.”
“Right now, Jude is an adorable, perpetually tan-looking little brown boy,” she says. “But one day, he’s going to grow up and he’s going to be a tall, probably sort of large, intimidating-looking, maybe, brown man. And my other boys are probably gonna look like nerdy white guys.”
Some of her past remarks about gender were also unearthed, including a tweet in May that stated she would “support bringing back household voting,” a policy that existed before women’s suffrage which allowed only the head of a household — usually a man — to vote.
She stood by the remark on Tuesday.
“Pro-aborts are SO scared of my speech tonight that will pull back the curtain of the barbaric reality of abortion, they are scrambling to try to find anything to detract people from my message,” Johnson tweeted. “Well, guess what?? You can dredge up whatever old tweets you want. I’m still speaking.”
We shouldn't be surprised that liberals and their allies in the media are willing to attack a woman whose views don't align with their own radicalism.
Thank you, Abby Johnson, for speaking up and telling the truth straight to the American people!
