During her time as director of Planned Parenthood in Bryan, Texas, Abby facilitated over 22,000 abortions. Abby worked for the abortion industry for eight years and was awarded the 2008 Employee of the Year at Planned Parenthood. She was the youngest director of a clinic in the nation, until she walked out after assisting in an abortion of a 13-week-old fetus.
