Planned Parenthood is the big gorilla in America's abortion industry, the billion dollar a year operation that gets some $300 million plus annually from taxpayers, the nightmare for pro-life activists that is responsible for a sizeable number of the million-plus abortions done every year in the nation.

Now a former executive for the operation says there is a way to defeat the behemoth: Convince the workers, clerks, receptionists, nurses, even doctors, that what they are doing is wrong. And do it without arguing.

The words of advice come from Abby Johnson, whose new book "unPLANNED" is launching on Tuesday. And she knows. She was a PP executive, and suddenly realized she no longer could do what she had been doing.

She holds a B.S. in psychology from Texas A&M University and an M.A. in counseling from Sam Houston State University. She works now with the national 40 Days for Life pro-life campaign and lives with her husband, Doug, and young daughter in Texas.

It was her work for years for Planned Parenthood, however, that gives her credentials to talk about the abortion industry leader.

She was hired by Planned Parenthood in 2005 and progressed to the position of community services director and health educator, where she served as liaison between the community and Planned Parenthood as media correspondent. Later promoted to health center director, Johnson ran both the family planning and abortion programs.

In 2009, however, she suddenly left Planned Parenthood and joined the local Coalition for Life as a volunteer.

WND told her story at the time, how her life suddenly changed, when she was needed to assist with an abortion.
