As the late term abortion bill in Texas faces final passage today, reports are coming in that pro-choice activists are planning to act violent toward pro-lifers in the state's capitol. Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood employee-turned pro lifer, has confirmed she’s been speaking with abortion clinic workers in Austin -- and they shared some alarming insight.

Based on her conversations, Johnson felt the need to post this warning on Facebook:

I just wanted to post something in preparation for tomorrow. I have had a couple of legitimately concerned abortion clinic workers (from Austin clinics) contact me to let me know what is being planned for tomorrow. Both Planned Parenthood and NARAL are no longer encouraging their supporters to be civil and courteous. These workers are telling me that many are planning on getting arrested and being aggressive with prolifers (including physical contact because they don't think we will press charges).

I am writing this to you guys because I used to be one of the abortion supporters. They are very angry, hurting people. At this time, they feel like they have nothing to lose. I am not posting this to frighten any of you...rather, I am posting this so you are aware of what we are dealing with. AND, I want all of you to go in armed with the power of prayer.

I am not bringing my children with me tomorrow. I do not want them to be a part of the spectacle that will take place.

Tomorrow is NOT the time to engage with any of them. Also, do not be reactive. If one of them starting spouting off to you, immediately turn and walk away. They will be looking to get into trouble tomorrow. Let's make sure they don't find any trouble with us.

Johnson also took her message to Twitter:

What a contrast from the pro-lifers in Texas who, among other innocent actions, sang "Amazing Grace" to show their support for the unborn.
