No matter how deeply someone may be entrenched in the culture of death, they are never beyond the loving reach of Christ, said former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson to a group of Georgetown University students on Wednesday.
"I'm standing in front of you today as a testament to the power of conversion," Johnson, a former Texas Planned Parenthood clinic director who later converted to Catholicism, said in a talk scheduled the same day as Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards' address to students on Georgetown's campus.
Reflecting later on Richards addressing students earlier in the afternoon, Johnson said, "I just kept thinking you know, I believe that one day – I have faith – that one day it won't be me standing here speaking and defending the sanctity of human life."
"I believe that one day it will be Cecile Richards standing here."
