Abby Johnson holds a B.S. in psychology from Texas A&M University and an M.A. in counseling from Sam Houston State University. She worked for Planned Parenthood for eight years, from 2001 to 2009, progressing from volunteer to community services director and health educator, where she served as liaison between the community and Planned Parenthood as media spokesperson. After earning a promotion to director of the Planned Parenthood health center in Bryan, Texas, Johnson ran the facility’s family planning and abortion programs. She left Planned Parenthood in 2009 and joined the Bryan, Texas-based Coalition for Life as a volunteer. She continues her volunteer activities and now also works on projects with the national “40 Days for Life” campaign. She and her husband, Doug, have a young daughter and live in Texas. Her book, UnPlanned, is a heart-stopping personal drama of life-and-death encounters, a courtroom battle, and spiritual transformation that speaks hope and compassion into the political controversy that surrounds this complex issue.
