Pro-life leader Abby Johnson said she felt sick as she read reports about abortionists killing unborn babies up to the last minutes before the new Texas heartbeat law went into effect last week.
Though some news outlets portrayed the abortionists’ work as compassionate, Johnson said it really was “demonic,” according to The Christian Post.
“How … gross that you’re like, ‘Gotta kill babies up until that last second,’” she said on her podcast “Politely Rude.” “That’s how you know that abortion is just demonic. That’s how you know that we’re just dealing with evil here — that there’s like just, ‘Gotta kill them right up until the last second.’”
The Texas heartbeat law went into effect Sept. 1, prohibiting abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy. The legislation has the potential to save tens of thousands of babies’ lives every year.

Reports from news outlets in Texas and other parts of the country highlighted how abortionists worked right up until midnight on Aug. 31 to abort unborn babies. The 19th News reported about one 80-something year old abortionist who worked for 17 hours straight, aborting 67 unborn babies at Whole Woman’s Health in Fort Worth. One of his co-workers described his work as a “victory.”
But Johnson slammed the life-destroying spree as “evil.”
She said she knows all too well the harm that abortion causes women as well as children. She had two abortions herself before leaving her job running a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Texas. Since she became pro-life, Johnson said she has met thousands of other women who regret their abortions as well.
“Women are living with lifelong regret because of these hasty decisions that they make inside of these abortion facilities each and every day,” she said.
Johnson celebrated when the heartbeat law went into effect.
“Today, babies with a detectable heartbeat in the womb must be protected,” Johnson said. “And that just thrills me to bits. … I’m just so excited.”
She continued: “I want to make it super hard [to get an abortion] because I want your baby to live. I don’t want you to live a lifetime of regret because of a decision that you made in haste … a decision that you made in crisis.”
Johnson runs a pro-life organization, LoveLine, that provides financial and emotional support to pregnant and parenting mothers in need. She also runs a ministry called And Then There Were None that helps abortion workers leave the industry.
Her organizations and many others are reaching out to pregnant women across Texas with compassion and understanding, offering resources and emotional support to help them and their babies. Earlier this year, state lawmakers increased support for pregnant and parenting mothers and babies, ensuring that they have resources to choose life for their babies.
