Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

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.

Jean Alice, April 20, 2011 (view all comments by Jean Alice)
I read this book in less than 24 hours. From the gripping first chapter to the last page, Abby's story of idealism and dedication to helping pregnant girls and women held my attention. Reading about Abby's personal life,her love affairs and marriages, her goals, gave me a sympathetic view of the author. From college student volunteer to counselor and administrator, her dedication does not waver.
The story of pro-lifers who were, literally, on the other side of the fence, shows a range of activities, from gentle to frightening, by those wanting to prevent the abortions about to happen. Both sides came to respect each other as individuals, and to form a kind of truce as women were escorted to and from the Planned Parenthood facility where Abby rose through the ranks to be director.
Abby's sudden decision to leave the job she loved leads to anger and sadness for some, and for critical changes for her. Behind the scenes looks at the opposing camps, their origins and philosophies, adds to a fuller picture of this complicated subject.
This book does not treat both sides of the pro-life, pro-choice camps equally. With morality and emotions involved, how could it? It truly is a page-turner.
