Pro-lifer encouraged by youth involvement

Abby Johnson, a former abortion clinic director who became pro-life upon witnessing an abortion through a sonogram, is currently in Washington for the annual March for Life.

Johnson, AbbyJohnson told Bryan Fischer on American Family Radio's (AFR) "Focal Point" that the government is not going to end abortion; it will be the pro-lifers on the frontlines witnessing to people and changing hearts and minds.

"What really is exciting is there are so many youth here," she accounts. "That was one of the things the former NARAL leader, one of the things she said, was that there's no more pro-choice youth," Johnson notes regarding Nancy Keenan, who recently stepped down from her position as president of the National Abortion Rights Action League.

Johnson says the youth of today are seeing the science and the technology that clearly demonstrates the truth -- a preborn baby is a human being and should not be terminated.

But in recognition of Monday, the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, abortion proponents developed an ad celebrating legal abortion. It features a male character speaking in a romantic tone. Johnson took the opportunity on Fischer's show to voice her objection to that ad.

"It's basically saying, Yes, I want to go out, and I want to have consequence-free sex, and here's abortion -- you know, my best pal over here … to take care of this," she laments. "There's no consequences, no responsibility, and that's what's happened to men in our society -- they have been downplayed into just sexual objects, just like women have been."

The pro-lifer concludes that the ad misses the chance to talk about lifelong commitment and marriage, and she deems it "sad and despicable."

Friday's March for Life marks the 40th anniversary of legalized abortion.
