Dear Lord,
Thank you for the Love in our family that
makes us want to help those
who have no food

who have no Love like ours.
Let us pray to the Lord.
Jesus, please show us to Love and
care for each other.
Lord, hear our prayer.

Yes, it is, and I've looked at it all. Sorry, but your assumptions only make an ass out of you. NO research negates what I'm saying.
Planned Parenthood was granted a temporary restraining order against Johnson and Coalition for Life after Johnson's resignation. The order was lifted by a court a week later. Johnson said the "performance improvement plan" was due to her reluctance to increase the number of abortions performed at her facility.

So, they got rid of very expensive ultrasound equipment just to "discredit" her?
How did they "doctor" her interview?
LOL, sorry but you are the one being naive.
There would be no need to get rid of ultrasound equipment just to doctor the records.

Why would PP go so to such extremes to discredit and silence her if she simply had a change of heart and wanted to quit?

Why would she be assisting? She obviously wasn't medical personnel. Did they need her to file something?

A former director of Planned Parenthood in Texas explained why she became a pro-life activist.
She was called in to assist in an ultrasound-guided abortion. She said she watched the baby she had believed to be incapable of feeling anything squirming and twisting to avoid the tube into which it would be vacuumed.
“For the briefest moment," she writes, "the baby looked as if it were being wrung like a dishcloth, twirled and squeezed. And then it crumpled and began disappearing into the cannula before my eyes. The last thing I saw was the tiny, perfectly formed backbone sucked into the tube, and then it was gone.”
She quit her job two weeks later.

The woman was giving information to a militant anti-choice group, which was possibly the kind of group that has no moral objections to giving out private information about women who've had abortions, or even home addresses and phone numbers of the doctors who perform them.

She can say what she likes, doesn't make it true. The fact is that the timing of her defection is suspect, supposedly witnessing the procedure that supposedly caused her such spiritual distress, after which she still went on record as vehemently defending a woman's right to choose, and had nothing but bad things to say about the protesters, and THEN she left.

Not by me. I always take them with a grain of salt, and read all I can to make my own determination. I don't automatically believe anyone just because they're on the same side of an argument as I am.

Exactly. Are they under the impression it's like a sports team, there have to be a certain number of bodies present, even if they are not qualified to play, or the game can't go on?

Abortion procedures are well-over 1/3 of Planned Parenthood's operating income.

A single birth-control pill is documented as one treatment unit. Dispensing 30 pills to patient = 30 treatment units. An abortion procedure = 1 treatment unit.

Your "abortion is only 3% of total treatment units at Planned Parenthood" is an intentional ruse.

Nazism is a political movement, not a faith. It played on the already-extant anti-semitism that pervaded germany of the time, scapegoating them for the country's post-WW1 ills.

BTW--hitler was a catholic.

Women don't have to be pregnant if they choose not to be. It's none of your business.

So, Ariel was taken against her will across state lines, held against her will & beaten? She was "14-years-old" then 20-years-old?

Yes, that would be Abby Johnson, the known liar. She was an administrator that claimed she watched an ultrasound abortion. Problem was, there were no ultrasound abortions at the facility she worked at - and she wasn't a nurse, so she wouldn't have been involved to see one in person.
BTW - She only quit becuase she knew she would be fired after she was given a poor preformance evaluation. Besides, why work for a living when you can milk suckers like you with sob stories that NOBODY in their right mind believes?
Honey Foo Foo: "Abby Johnso is a known liar."

After weeks of being held against her will, authorities finally found her beaten badly. She was admitted to hospital.

And yet, not ONE news article corroborates your oh-so-dramatic story. Not one.

Were you needing a little attention, dear?

A fully-formed organ is capable of function (though it can lose function later), or it is only partially-formed. You might as well say an egg is a fully-formed chicken.
