Former Planned Parenthood Employee Shares a Big Reason Why Young People Are Pro-Life

The 45th annual March for Life is taking place today. Former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson, now a pro-life advocate, joined Glenn on today’s show to talk about why so many young people are passionate about protecting unborn babies.

The advancements of science and technology have been influential for today’s pro-lifers. The younger generation grew up with the idea that your first “baby picture” is an ultrasound, something that has made a profound difference to how they see life in the womb.

Johnson also shared the best ways to reach out to ex-abortion clinic employees or moms-to-be who are contemplating abortion. Reacting with anger and condemnation will only produce more hurt in return; instead, we should be kind and offer a far better, more hopeful alternative to abortion.

GLENN: Abby Johnson, she is the CEO and founder of and then there were none. She was a woman -- I would like to ask her to tell her story, in case you've never heard it. Because it is -- it's a story of redemption and love.

Abby, welcome to the program.

ABBY: Oh, thanks for having me, Glenn. It's always good to be on.

GLENN: You are in Washington, I assume?

ABBY: I am. I'm backstage in the March for Life.

GLENN: I know you've got a million things going on. Can you tell me first what's happening today, and how many people are showing up, and what it's like?

ABBY: Sure. So 45th Annual March for Life. I mean, it's sad that we're still here, 45 years after Roe v. Wade. But we see, you know, significant change in our culture. The overwhelming majority of people here are under the age of 30. I'm 37, and they look at me like I'm ancient. So it's young people here.

In fact, 50 years ago, the president, they were out in the March for Life. And in her report, she said, I looked around, and I thought to myself, "They are all so young."

And that's true. And I think one of the reasons is because, you know, we have a generation of people now that their first baby picture was of themselves in the womb.

It's not, you know, being -- being a child in the womb is not something that is abstract. They can see themselves. They can see that they were potentially at risk for abortion. But they were able to live.

And so it's very real for them. And it's -- it's a great time coming together. But also a time of remembrance, for, you know, the 60 million-plus lives that have been destroyed by abortion. And that's just the unborn. Then we have to consider all the women and men who are also suffering from their abortion decisions.

We expect probably between 400 and 500,000 people to be here in Washington today. Although, you know, CNN will probably say there were a few thousand.

GLENN: Yeah. It doesn't matter.

ABBY: But it's always -- it's always a good time.

GLENN: So, Abby, would you just share your story? Because I like -- what I -- I think you are the key to unlocking so many doors. Because you actually worked at Planned Parenthood. And you're not somebody who is -- you know, drives the abortion truck. You know, that is -- is shouting at people as they go into Planned Parenthood. You're a person who has compassion. And that's what led you to Planned Parenthood in the first place, until you figured it out.

ABBY: Right. So I worked at Planned Parenthood for eight years. Got involved as a college kid. Got -- the prime target for Planned Parenthood is college-aged kids. I say that wherever there are vulnerable women, so is Planned Parenthood. And there are tens of thousands of vulnerable students on college campuses. And you better believe that Planned Parenthood is right there along with them. I didn't know anything about Planned Parenthood. But they told me they were all about helping women. And certainly as a woman, I want to help other women. And so got involved with them. Ended up rising through the ranks. Was a clinic director with them for many years.

And left, in October of 2009, after witnessing a live ultrasound abortion procedure, where I saw a baby fight and struggle for his life against the abortion instrument, and ultimately lost his life.

And I knew then that two things were true: That life was, in fact, in the womb. And that there was humanity in the womb. And if those two things were true, then I was on the wrong side of this debate.

And so I left. And when I left, Planned Parenthood sued me. Tried to take me to court. Tried to get a permanent gag order against me so that I would not be able to speak out about my experience at Planned Parenthood and things that I do.

And they obviously lost. And then a couple years later, I started an organization called, And Then There Were None.

And we actively reach out to abortion clinic workers and try to get them out of the abortion industry.

And to date, in the past few years, we have helped 419 abortion clinic workers leave the industry, find help and hope and healing in Christ.

GLENN: Wow.

ABBY: And get them new jobs in life-affirming situations. And that 419 also includes seven full-time abortion doctors, who now work in life-affirming medical practices.

GLENN: What was the key to the -- I mean, the doctors know. What was the key to turn them?

ABBY: You know, they know. A lot of times they've known for a while. And they've wanted to get out for a while. But I think almost all the doctors that we have helped to leave, they -- there's a lot of baggage that comes along with them. Because when you are aborting babies, you are also usually living a pretty immoral lifestyle.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

ABBY: And so there's tax issues. There's, you know, many, many divorces. There's, you know, all these issues with children, custody. And so there's a lot of baggage that comes along with them. And they just think, I'm never going to get out of this. I'm never going to be able to get my head above water. Because performing abortion is a very lucrative job. And they think that they can't do it. And we just show them that, look, your soul is more important than the money you're bringing in every year. And we're going to help you -- we're going to help you get your head above water, but you've got to trust us.

GLENN: Abbey, what is the one thing that maybe has been done in the past that you hope to change with people who are pro-life? What is the thing that if you could have everybody here today, this is the message that we should be carrying?

ABBY: So we've got to be carrying a message of love. And oftentimes, there's life and death and the power of the tongue, right?

And in this case in the times that we're living in now, it's the power of our keyboard. And I wish that I could, you know, talk to every pro-lifer and instruct them on how to respond to people online. People are watching us.

Women who have had abortions, they're watching us. They're watching how we respond. And when you call them murderers. When you say hateful things about them, when you say that God will never forgive them, they're watching us. And you could be impeding someone's progress to finding healing and hope in Christ.

When -- when a woman is considering having an abortion, when she's trying to make that decision and she sees you online saying, you know, I -- just, women who do that, oh, they just need to keep their legs closed. What's wrong with them? And they made their need, and they need to lie in it. They're saying things like that. You have the ability to change someone's life and to actually save a life. When an abortion worker is online or a former abortion worker is online and they're looking for resources and they're looking for help, and they pro-lifers, you know, I hope they burn in hell. I pray they burn in hell. God is never going to forgive them. They're baby killers.

They're watching you. And I just wish that I could help everybody understand that our words are so powerful. And underneath everything we do, it should be undergirded in love and in life and in mercy. Because we have all received mercy and grace from Christ, and we should be extending that to everyone.

GLENN: Abby Johnson, thank you so much. I'm glad your voice was heard today.

ABBY: Thanks.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.

11 things you can do to help stop the Great Reset

The foundation of the American way of life is freedom from tyranny, which can only exist in a nation that defends the rights, powers, and property of individuals and families. Over the past two centuries, the greatest threats to liberty have come from governments, both foreign and domestic. And from the beaches of Normandy to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, Americans have repeatedly conquered the challenges placed before them by those seeking to extinguish or limit individual rights.

However, over the past few years, a new, potentially catastrophic danger has emerged, but not primarily from the halls of Congress or state capitols. This threat to freedom has largely emanated from the board rooms of the world’s wealthiest, most powerful corporations, large financial institutions, central banks, and international organizations such as the United Nations and World Economic Forum.

In an attempt to secure vast amounts of wealth and influence over society, corporate CEOs, bankers, and investors, working closely with key government officials, have launched a unified effort to impose environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards on most of the industrialized global economy. ESG standards are also referred to as “sustainable investment” or “stakeholder capitalism.” According to a report by KPMG, thousands of companies, located in more than 50 countries, already have ESG systems in place, including 82 percent of large companies in the United States.

ESG standards are designed to create a “great reset of capitalism” and to “revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions.” ESG supporters plan to enact these radical changes by using ESG schemes to alter how businesses and investments are evaluated, so that instead of focusing on the quality of goods and services, profits, and other traditional economic metrics, companies — including financial institutions — are evaluated largely on their commitment to social justice and environmental causes and then assigned scores so that companies can be compared, rewarded, or potentially punished.

Supporters of the movement for a Great Reset also plan on using technology to limit free speech and privacy rights, and they support creating vast new government programs that are designed to transform the Western economy via the Green New Deal, European Green Deal, a federal jobs guarantee, and basic income programs.

Together, the proposals that make up the Great Reset represent the most serious threat to freedom in the West since the fall of the Soviet Union and perhaps since World War II. But there is hope. We can stop the Great Reset, but only if we act quickly and with great conviction.

Below are 11 steps you can take to push back against the Great Reset. These steps represent a powerful bottom-up, grassroots approach to the Great Reset’s top-down plan to remake the world. Although many of these steps won’t be easy for everyone to take, they are essential for ensuring that our children and grandchildren will grow up in a world that protects the rights of individuals and empowers families, rather than wealthy special interests, financial institutions, and large corporations.

1. Live Not by Lies: The time for remaining quiet is over. When you hear or see something that you know to be false, speak up. Be kind, generous, and compassionate, but do not, under any circumstances, allow lies to infect your life. Further, do not support organizations, publications, politicians, schools, or any other institutions that regularly promote false claims.

2. Buy Local: The reason the Great Reset is so powerful is because so many of us have become totally dependent on large multinational corporations. They can be easily manipulated in a way that small, local businesses cannot. Learn to buy local, whenever possible, even if it means spending more money on your purchases. Yes, big corporations offer conveniences and low prices that many small businesses can’t compete with, but those benefits come with a great cost: your freedom.

3. Bank Local: Big financial institutions and banks are driving much of the Great Reset movement. They have started to use their incredible wealth and power to alter society by financing only those businesses who agree to the terms of the Great Reset. This problem is going to get worse, so it’s important to find local banks and credit unions you can trust and who refuse to utilize ESG scores and other discriminatory schemes.

4. Support Local Farms: If you live in an area that has local farms and farmer’s markets, consider buying as many of your groceries as possible from farmers. In the future, food production and distribution are going to change dramatically. It’s important that you support local farmers and build relationships with individuals who can provide you with the goods you need in a time of crisis. One of our main goals must be to make local communities as self-sufficient as possible, and that cannot happen unless we support local farms.

5. Be Vocal: After starting to shop and bank locally, be sure to tell big financial institutions and corporations why they have lost your business. They need to know that their decisions have serious consequences.

6. Run for Local Government: Local and state governments will soon be our most important defense against the Great Reset. Consider running for your local school board, zoning board, or even for a state legislative office. If you don’t feel qualified for these positions, find someone who shares your values and help them run for office. If we don’t have control of our local governments, we won’t be able to halt the Great Reset.

7. Demand That Your State Pass Laws Against ESG Scores: In America, states have a tremendous amount of power to slow the Great Reset and protect their citizens from abuses by large corporations, banks, and international institutions. They can do this by passing laws that make the use of ESG metrics and other, similar systems by financial institutions illegal, when used as a precondition for banking services, financing, investment, etc. ESG scores are, by definition, discriminatory and should be made illegal by state lawmakers who care about protecting their citizens’ rights.

8. Make Responsible Spending a Key Issue for Politicians: In recent years, politicians on the ideological left and right have totally abandoned responsible fiscal policy in favor of vast money printing and loose monetary policies. The many trillions of dollars that have been “printed” in recent years put our economy at risk and are being used to fuel the Great Reset. Without these trillions of dollars of printed money, it would be exceptionally difficult for governments and financial institutions to buy off corporations.

9. Organize Anti-Great Reset Groups: No matter where you live, there are Americans in your community who do not support the Great Reset — Republicans, Democrats, and independents alike. Find like-minded neighbors and organize a local, peaceful resistance. Find people you can trust and agree to support one another when times get tough. Now, more than ever, we need to develop dependable communities.

10. Buy Property and Diversify: Property ownership is going to become increasingly more difficult in the months and years to come. It’s important that you work with a qualified financial adviser to help you figure out the best way to buy property and diversify your investments. Buying hard assets, including real estate and precious metals, could be a good way for you to protect against the Great Reset and a possible financial collapse. If you already own property, resist selling it to large corporations and financial institutions, whenever possible. (This is not financial advice, and I’m not a financial adviser. Talk to an expert you trust before taking action!)

11. Make the Great Reset a Litmus Test for Politicians: Before supporting politicians, find out if they know what the Great Reset is and what they plan to do to stop it. If they aren’t familiar with the Great Reset or don’t have a plan to halt it, then demand that they learn about the Great Reset and develop a proposal to prevent it. Political leaders who refuse to take the Great Reset seriously do not deserve your support. This is the key issue of our generation.

Scott Quiner was transferred over the weekend to a hospital in Texas after doctors in Minnesota threated to terminate life support measures as he battled severe complications from COVID-19. Scott's wife, Anne Quiner, appealed to the courts for a restraining order to prevent the hospital from pulling the plug as she sought a new facility to provide medical care for her husband. Scott was unvaccinated when he tested positive for COVID-19 in late October, 2021.

Anne and her attorney Marjorie Holsten joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Thursday to describe their frantic efforts to halt the hospital's decision to turn off Scott's life support — allegedly because he was unvaccinated — and just how difficult it was to get him the medical treatment he needed.

"It was absolutely stunning," Holsten told Glenn. "[Anne] came in and she has this order, I saw the screenshot from the [online medical] chart that said [Scott] is basically scheduled for execution at noon the following day."

According to Holsten, the Minnesota hospital responded to her appeal for a restraining order by claiming that the "position" to keep Scott alive "is not supported by medical science or Minnesota law. As a result, Mercy will ask the court to issue an order that Mercy has the authority to discontinue Mr. Quiner's ventilator and proceed with his medical care plan."

"The 'medical care plan' was the plan to discontinue the ventilator at noon, which leads to death very shortly. So that was at 10 o'clock, but then at 11 o'clock, before the 12 o'clock execution, the judge did, in fact, sign an order saying the hospital is restrained from pulling the plug," she added.

Anne told Glenn that doctors in Texas were shocked by Scott's condition after he arrived from the Minnesota hospital. Not only had he been given dangerous drugs, he was also found to be “severely malnourished."

"The doctor [in Texas] spent two hours with Scott and when he came back out, he said, 'I don't know how he even made it, how he even survived that other hospital ... but I will do everything I can to try to save his life,'" Anne explained.

"And the doctor [in Texas] said Scott was the most undernourished patient he has ever seen," Holsten added.

"Glenn, we are first bringing this battle to the court of public opinion," Holsten continued. "What we are showing the world is that Scott was near death because of the protocols used in that [Minnesota] hospital, but now he is recovering. He is getting better.... Now, we're not planning a funeral, we're planning for his release."
