Among Women 209: Women Leaving the Abortion Industry

May 10, 2016

This week’s episode:

“Blessed are They”: St Gianna Beretta Molla

“Among Women” Guest: Abby Johnson

This episode is poignant and powerful. My guest, Abby Johnson, works in a ministry “And Then There Were None”, dedicated to help women come out of the abortion industry. Her new book is riveting: The Walls are Talking: Former Abortion Clinic Workers Tell Their Stories. Together we talk about how our committed friendship and love can help more women say no to abortion and re-start lives outside of the industry.

In our “Blessed are They” segment, I read an excerpt from Melanie Rigney’s Blessed Are You that profiles the life of St Gianna Beretta Molla. Plus I share about Holy Doors and the Year of Mercy.
