A pro-life group has announced that they will encourage workers in the abortion industry to leave their jobs by writing them love letters.
Pro-life activists and volunteers with the “Love One Out, Love Won Out” campaign launched by And Then There Were None will send flowers and love letters to abortion clinic employees that read, “We love you, and you are too good to be working in an abortion clinic. We love you enough to help you quit. Healing is possible.”

Abby Johnson, founder and president of And Then There Were None, said that love is the key to getting abortion clinic workers to leave the industry.
“As a former abortion clinic worker, I remember wanting to leave the industry but wondered how it would be perceived,” Johnson said. “Would someone love me enough to help me get out? I knew that I deserved better, and when I left the abortion industry, I wanted to help other workers leave as well, which is why I started ATTWN.”
Johnson, a former clinic director at a Texas Planned Parenthood, was the organization’s employee of the year in 2008 before she became pro-life. Her former affiliate was featured in undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress.
“Love always wins, and what we’re finding here at ATTWN is that this message of pro-life being pro-love is helping the pro-life movement to reach a different group of people,” she added. “This group — clinic workers — are changing the narrative in the pro-life movement through a message of love that empowers them enough to quit their job in the abortion industry.”
“The Love One Out campaign was designed to help abortion clinic workers know that they can do better than working in the abortion industry and that they can receive the support and love from others who have left the industry,” Johnson said.
