Subject: More on Abby ... and your advice needed!

Dear _________,

What an amazing last few days!

After yesterday's message sharing the miraculous
conversion of Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood
director in Bryan/College Station, Texas (birthplace
of 40 Days for Life), her story has sent shock waves
through the abortion industry and inspired hundreds
of thousands of people world wide.

See a picture of Abby with 40 Days for Life campaign
director Shawn Carney in Bryan/College Station on the
sidewalk outside of her former workplace:

Among the 100+ media outlets reporting on Abby's
conversion story in the last 24 hours, she was a
featured guest yesterday on the nationally syndicated
Laura Ingraham radio show (guest hosted by Raymond
Arroyo) and shared her riveting story about the
impact of 40 Days for Life people praying outside of
her workplace.

We just posted a 10-minute audio excerpt of that
interview, and you will be deeply touched when you
hear what she said -- especially starting around
minute eight. Listen here:

Not only that, but yesterday, the first segment of
ABC's "The View" had Barbara Walters discussing
Abby's conversion and the disturbing revelations
about how Planned Parenthood pressured Abby to
increase the numbers of abortions to increase their
income -- which even pro-abortion co-host Joy Behar
called "gross."

The View's national audience then heard actress
Sherri Shepherd relate her own experience of being
pressured at Planned Parenthood when she was 17 years
old. She recalled telling the abortion worker, "I'm
not quite sure what I should do -- and she was
pressuring me to get the abortion."

Praise God for all these opportunities Abby has to
share the truth about life -- and the harm caused by
the abortion industry!

Please keep Abby in your prayers as she prepares to
go on the O'Reilly Factor this Friday night -- and
as abortion advocates (whose worldview has just been
shattered) are now resorting to personal attacks
against her.
