Banquet for Life 2012
What a night!
On April 26, 2012, Foothills Pregnancy Care Center hosted a fundraising banquet at Hilton Garden Inn in Anderson. Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood employee, astounded 225 guests with alarming truth about the abortion industry. Abby Johnson's message was filled with information concerning God's grace and forgiveness and the horror of what is happening to our nation with abortion.
We were encouraged by the support we received from guests and sponsors who raised $25,000 to help sustain our ongoing medical, educational, benevolence and recovery programs.
Thank you for your support!
Key Note Speaker: Abby Johnson
I once was lost...but now I am pro-life! Formerly a Planned Parenthood director, I now work to save lives.
Abby Johnson joined Planned Parenthood in 2001 as a college student because she wanted to help women in crisis - a goal she believed the organization shared. As she rose through the ranks to become a clinic director, she became increasingly unsettled about what she was being asked to do. But it wasn’t until she helped perform an ultrasound-guided abortion procedure that Abby fully realized what she had been a part of all those years. In 2009, she left Planned Parenthood and joined the pro-life movement as a volunteer.
Abby now works full time in the pro-life movement. She continues her volunteer activities, works as Chief Research Strategist for Live Action Films, works on projects with the national 40 Days for Life campaign and works on both federal and state pro-life legislation. The true life account of her experiences with Planned Parenthood are detailed in her bestselling book, "unPLANNED." Abby's story has been featured on Fox News, the O'Reilly Factor, Huckabee, ABC News, and many other national news outlets. Abby holds a B.S. in psychology from the Texas A&M University and a M.A. in counseling from Sam Houston State University. She and her husband, Doug, have a young daughter and live in Texas.
