After Georgetown Wouldn't Budge on Letting Cecile Richards Speak, Pro-Lifers Schedule a Speech of Their Own

The president of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, is scheduled to address Georgetown University on April 20. She was invited to speak by the Lecture Fund, a student-run organization on campus. Perhaps unsurprisingly, her invitation to speak at a Catholic university drew controversy, and the Archdiocese of Washington issued a statement lamenting that the student group was not adhering to Catholic morality on a Catholic campus.

Rather than stamp their feet and try to get Richards' speech canceled, Georgetown Right to Life, a pro-life student group, is hosting a lecture of their own to counter Richards: former Planned Parenthood employee-turned-pro-life-advocate Abby Johnson. Johnson worked at Planned Parenthood (and was even named "Employee of the Year" at her clinic in 2008) until resigning in 2009 and devoting her life to ending abortion. Johnson runs "And Then There Were None," a ministry for former abortion workers like herself.

Georgetown Right to Life's president feels as though Johnson's story will help to shed light on the truth behind Planned Parenthood's mission and will offer a positive message of love.

“Abby Johnson has personal experience at Planned Parenthood, and will reveal what the organization is really all about. It is important students learn about Planned Parenthood’s careless disregard for human life, and why Planned Parenthood is bad for women and children,” said Michael Khan, president of Georgetown Right to Life, an affiliate of the national pro-life youth organization Students for Life of America, and the group hosting Abby Johnson. “Amidst media bias and abortion defenders, Abby provides clarity to this debate and will offer a positive, life-affirming message of hope and love that defends the most defenseless.”

Kudos to the students of Georgetown Right to Life for respectfully taking matters in to their own hands when faced with a situation they didn't like.
