"It is not a trivial thing to heed the call of one's conscience, especially when the cost is one's livelihood. I know. Years ago, I walked away from a Stanford Ph.D. and an academic position when I told the truth about forced abortions in China. The women in this book did the same thing. They walked away from the security of their jobs in the abortion industry when they realized the murderous truth about what actually goes on there. Read their stories, and pray that hundreds more abortion clinic workers will follow them out the door, with the last one turning out the lights as she leaves." -- Steven Mosher, President, Population Research Institute
"The Walls Are Talking, and they're urging us to listen. The voices of Abby Johnson and other former abortion workers are loud and clear. Their real life accounts describing the inner workings of the abortion industry can no longer be ignored. And despite the stark madness of this gruesome environment, these stories of grace remind us that no one is beyond the reach of Christ." --Ramona Trevino, Author, Redeemed by Grace: A Catholic Woman's Journey to Planned Parenthood and Back
"My friend, Abby Johnson, has been teaching us for several years what it means to leave the abortion industry and feel free of the murder, the heartache and the misery that accompany abortion.
Abby's latest book, The Walls Are Talking, is another remarkable journey down the path that she, and so many others, have travelled on their way out the torment of the abortion industry and into the light of truth.
I encourage everyone to read The Walls Are Talking and share it with family and friends. Heroic women like Abby inspire all of us."
-- Judie Brown, President, American Life League

Abortionists are very persuading to kill the fetus rather than asking if the patient would want to see the ultrasound. Abortionists do not usually show the ultrasound, because once the patient realizes that the fetus is forming and alive they want to keep the baby. Abortionists are willing to risk everything that they have so that women can have a choice. Some people go in nine and ten times for abortions because they do not realize that they are doing something morally wrong. People believe that they are killing a fetus until they are shown their actual child in human form. Many different people that receive abortions are usually prostitutes, raped victims, and people who do not have a stable life to welcome a child. Abortion is not right, but peaceful people who pray outside of clinics help turn people into the direction of choosing life. My favorite part about the book was when she left the abortion clinic and ended up working in the NICU to save premature babies survive.
One of the things that stood out to me the most while reading this novel is how contradictory the workers of these institutions are. While most of them are feminist activists, their actions go against what they fight for. Most of them begin working for these abortion clinics to support women’s rights and fight for women to have the choice of what to do with their body; however, many of the workers’ actions are completely different. There are several cases that this happens in, but a few specific ones come to mind. A young girl Johnson named Jessica, did not show up the next day for the rest of her operation. The doctor called her phone multiple times and to get in touch with her, he actually called the hotel she was staying at and forced her to continue the abortion. This example shows that people that are fighting for women to choose what to do with her body are actually choosing for the women. In this case, the mom wanted to go to the hospital and fight for her baby to live, but the clinic had different ideas for her. This is one of the several examples of how the principles of Catholic Social Teachings are shown in this novel. This book shows that everything about abortion goes against the dignity of the human person and the rights and responsibilities we have as Catholics. The dignity of the human person is violated with abortion because it goes against the belief that humans are sacred, redeemed by God, and created in the image and likeness of God. This book shows that abortion and abortion workers do not respect rights and responsibilities because one of the basic rights is to protect life above anything else. The Walls are Talking by Abby Johnson, is extremely eye opening and inspiring to hear how clinic workers
I found the book extremely interesting because the testimonies inform people, like me, who have never been inside an abortion clinic what it is like to work in one. They allow the reader to see a world condemned or ignored by many from the eyes of women who used to embrace it, and it teaches the reader why they no longer do. But, by opening the reader’s eyes to the insides of the industry it also is able to create feelings of empathy from the reader for the people who work in the industry.
Some of the stories within the book are hard to read, and I would not encourage sharing this book with children. But, these stories are important to hear because they are often neglected by our society. This is why I enjoyed this book. It spoke out against the norm of our society that does not see a fetus as a life. With real-life and relevant stories the book defends the dignity of all the people involved- the mother, child, and worker in the industry- by giving each person a voice. I recommend this book to anyone on the fence about abortion, or anyone who supports Planned Parenthood without truly knowing everything about it.
