Parenthood director to appear on O'Reilly Friday
The 40 Days for Life blog is reporting that Abby Johnson, the former
director of the Bryan, TX, Planned Parenthood who quit her job earlier
this month and is now a pro-life convert, will appear on The O'Reilly
Factor Friday night.

post giving Johnson's backstory
The Associated Press has an update
on PP's attempted restraining order against Johnson...
The injunction... prevents Johnson and the [Brazos Valley C]oalition
[for Life] from releasing anything that Johnson, who was executive
director for about 2 years, may have retained while working at PP - at
least until the hearing.
Coalition Director Shawn Carney [pictured left] said Monday that there
was not a campaign to reveal private information. He said PP's actions
were unnecessary and an overreaction.
Lawyers for PP wrote in court documents filed Friday that Johnson was
seen copying confidential personnel files and possibly other documents
in the days before she abruptly resigned on Oct. 6. The clinic's
lawyers expressed worry in the filings that Johnson might release
clients' medical records, information about doctors who work at the
clinic and the clinic's security measures.
Johnson said in a telephone interview with The Eagle that she didn't
turn over any documents to the Coalition for Life.
"I didn't provide any because I don't have any," she said.
