Former manager of defunded Planned Parenthood clinic now giving speeches on her ‘pro-life conversion’

Two years after Abby Johnson, the former director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Bryan, Texas, abruptly quit her job and began protesting abortion rights (and profiting heavily from it), another former Planned Parenthood worker has recently begun accepting speaking gigs to denounce abortion, according to LifeNews.com.

Ramona Trevino was the manager of a recently shuttered Planned Parenthood clinic in Sherman, Texas, which did not perform abortions on-site but referred out.

Trevino is being described as the “new Abby Johnson” by some in the anti-abortion rights community, which also likes to trace the clinic’s closure back to a 40-day protest started in March by the Dallas branch of the international anti-abortion rights organization 40 Days for Life. But the clinic’s closing appears to be the result of legislation Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed earlier in the year prohibiting Planned Parenthood from receiving funding from the state’s Medicaid-supported Women’s Health Program.

A press release from 40 Days for Life Dallas notes that although Trevino’s clinic did not perform surgical abortion procedures, the former manager was struggling “with [her] conscience … on contraception, abortion and [her] role in it all.”

LifeNews reported that Trevino resigned from Planned Parenthood four months ago, but now that the Sherman clinic has closed, Trevino has begun speaking out about her “pro-life conversion” and has already accepted speaking gigs.

Trevino was scheduled to speak at a 40 Days for Life rally in front of the shuttered Sherman clinic on Sunday to, according to 40 Days for Life, “share her journey from believing she was providing a service to women in need to realizing that Planned Parenthood ‘treated women like cattle and how they only cared about making money.’” She is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the 40 Days for Life-Dallas Kickoff Rally (PDF) on Sept. 27, at Harry S. Moss Park in Dallas, part of a fall campaign involving about 300 cities worldwide, according to 40 Days for Life.

Several Planned Parenthood clinics have closed down throughout the state due to new state law and family-planning funding cuts in the budget. But that’s not how anti-abortion rights advocates are spinning this news.

According to LifeNews, the Texoma Pro-Life Association, which sponsored the 40 Days for Life, commented on the Sherman closing: “After 7 years of prayer, petitions, and hard work, the Planned Parenthood facility in Sherman, TX, is shutting its doors. We ask for prayers for the former employees of the Sherman Planned Parenthood facility and we give all the glory and praise to God for this amazing accomplishment.”

Last week, The Florida Independent reported that after a women’s health clinic in Pensacola, Fla., shut down after failing to pay its mortgage, anti-abortion rights groups credited the closing with a local 40 Days for Life campaign.
