Day two, August 25, of the Republic National Convention had a list of speakers from various walks of life. One of them was anti-abortion activist Abby Johnson. Johnson delivered a very graphic description of abortion during her speech and how it led her to quit her job as a Planned Parenthood clinic director and join the other side.

Recounting one of her experiences of an ultrasound-guided abortion, she said, "Nothing prepared me for what I saw on the screen: an unborn baby fighting back, desperate to move away from the suction." She added, "The last thing I saw was a spine twirling around in the mother’s womb before succumbing to the force of the suction."

Johnson founded and now runs 'And Then There Were None', a group that urges abortion clinic employees to leave. She said, "For most people who consider themselves pro-life, abortion is abstract — they can’t even conceive the barbarity." Johnson stated, "See, for me, abortion is real. I know what it sounds like; I know what abortion smells like. Did you know that abortion even had a smell?"

She said, "I now support President Trump because he has done more for the unborn than any other president." Johnson added, "This election is a choice between two radical anti-life activists and the most pro-life president, we have ever had. That’s something that should compel you to action. Go door to door, make calls, talk to your neighbors and friends, and vote on November 3. Take action that re-elects our president and do it with our very most vulnerable Americans in mind – the ones who haven’t been born yet."

During her speech, she also claimed that almost 80 percent of Planned Parenthood abortion facilities are strategically located in minority neighborhoods, but according to a New York Times report, the organization has less than 4 percent clinics in communities where more than a third of the population is Black.

According to The Daily Caller, she wrote the 2019 book 'Unplanned', which was the inspiration behind the eponymous movie. In June this year, as reported by The Daily Caller, Johnson released a video titled 'My thoughts on fatherhood'. According to the report, Johnson and her husband Doug had adopted a bi-racial boy in 2015. They had adopted him from a friend who wasn’t prepared for a child, according to a blog post that Doug wrote.

The report quoted Johnson as saying, “He is just, in my opinion, the most adorable little Brown boy you will ever see in your life. He looks like he has a perpetual tan. He has the most gorgeous hair on the planet." She added: "But one day he’s going to grow up and he's going to be a tall, probably sort of large, intimidating-looking, maybe, Brown man. And my other boys are probably going to look like nerdy White guys."

Johnson further said that she knows she has to have a different conversation with her adopted son regarding police interaction. "Because of the statistics that these police officers know in their head, they’re going to know that statistically, my Brown son is more likely to commit a violent offense over my White sons," Johnson said. She added: "So the fact that in his head he would be more careful around my Brown son than my white son. That doesn't actually make me angry. That makes that police officer smart because of statistics."

Her comments began to resurface before her August 25 speech and in response, she tweeted: "Pro-aborts are SO scared of my speech tonight that will pull back the curtain of the barbaric reality of abortion, they are scrambling to try to find anything to detract people from my message. Well, guess what?? You can dredge up whatever old tweets you want. I’m still speaking."


Now, Twitter wasn't far behind in expressing their opinions on Johnson's speech. One said, "No, Abby Johnson, this means statistically your 'Brown son' is more likely to be arrested, prosecuted, and convicted for an offense than your White sons. Those things do not necessarily translate to 'Is more likely to commit crime'."


Another said, "Having to turn off the tv in tears after Abby Johnson spewed sifi bull s**t about abortion. Then thinking, oh that’s probably as crazy as it’s going to get. Then turning the tv off again because some White privileged prepubescent boy cried victim because he was scared of a drum."


One user said, "Abby Johnson has been lying for a long a** time. That film she made didn’t even have a basic understanding of how an abortion would work with tracks with how F**king stupid she is."


Another user said, "Abby Johnson said that 'statically', her Brown son is more likely to commit violent crimes over her white sons, but I’m supposed to pay attention to her views on abortion and ignore that part??????????????????????"



A user stated, "Abby Johnson, everyone believes women should let their husbands decide their vote, that her Black son should be racially profiled, and abortions have smells. The contrast couldn’t be more clear. Anyone feeling the urge to give to a Dem women candidate?"


One commented, "Abby Johnson is one small step away from going full Gilead. She has a backwards belief on voting, twisted and insane views about abortion and the holocaust, and is ok with the police racially profiling her OWN son. You can’t make this s**t up, and this s**t is sinking the GOP.


She had also received flak for her recent tweets about supporting “head-of-household voting".  She had commented on Twitter, “In a Godly household, the husband would get the final say", when one user asked, "Interesting idea.. but what happens when the husband is a Republican and the wife is Democrat or vice versa?"
