September 1, 2011 ( – Two Planned Parenthood abortion clinic workers have left their jobs this week, according to former Planned Parenthood Director Abby Johnson. Johnson posted the good news yesterday on her Facebook page.

“I can’t tell you anything about the people that have left their jobs,” Johnson told LifeSiteNews. “They are very vulnerable because if Planned Parenthood knew that they left and were getting help from me, Planned Parenthood could go after them like they did me.”

Planned Parenthood was granted a temporary restraining order against Johnson and the Christian pro-life organization Coalition for Life after Abby’s resignation in 2009. The order was lifted by a court a week later.

The former Planned Parenthood Director confessed that she is “never really surprised” when she is contacted by clinic workers who want to leave.

“They’re working in a place that is evil and difficult to work in,” she said. “From my own experience, you can see a physical difference in their appearance, in their face, when they’re at a clinic and when they leave. It is an honor to get them out of a place that is so terrible.”

Johnson said that pro-lifers could do two things to support the clinic workers.

“Everyone can pray for them … They have taken a huge leap of faith,” she said, emphasizing that both clinic workers have children to support.

She also said that pro-lifers should consider extending their financial generosity to clinic workers who are out of work because they have chosen to quit.

“We can’t just say we’re pro-life for women,” she said. “These clinic workers are suffering in a way the general public will never understand. Both are in need of employment, one in Santa Clara, California and the other in Travis County, Texas.”

Johnson said that she is trying to raise money for the clinic workers so that they can stay afloat while they search for other employment, and that related information will soon be available on her Facebook page and on her website.

“People need to know that these are not the first two clinic workers to leave and they won’t be the last two,” Johnson concluded.
