"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

Though the stories within this book was difficult to get through-- because abortion itself is an act of violence, harming all members involved, not only the unborn--, I found that these stories offered hope. In describing the horror that is abortion, these women brought a realization about not only the act of abortion, but the underlying goals of the industry as well. These stories reveal that there is never only one victim in the act of abortion, as it affects the mother, the father, the doctor, the clinic workers, and everyone else involved. They also brought to light that the abortion industry is not aimed at better health-care for stronger, more powerful women, rather they simply seek self-interest and profit at the sake of women. This book reveals the truth that is hidden behind the slogans of Planned Parenthood campaigns and the darkness that is within the walls of an abortion clinic.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book not only for the truth it brought to light about the evil and corruption that is the foundation of abortion, but for the hope in new beginnings it gave. These women demonstrated that no matter what part they played in an abortion, they can make amends for their past mistakes and find redemption and mercy. They show that the first step on the journey of forgiveness is revealing the truth. The author, Abby Johnson, by writing this book and allowing not only her truth, but many other women reveal theirs, has created a movement founded in grace and love rooted in Christ. In doing the incredible and awestriking job she did of gathering the different experiences of different women who were involved at some time in the abortion industry, a greater understanding and respect for life has been given and the movement to protect life, all life, has grown stronger.
There are a lot of Catholic Social Teaching principle’s in this book including dignity of the human person, rights and responsibilities, and care for God’s creation. In this book, I identified the dignity of the human person because throughout the story, it talked about how every life is precious and each person has the right to life, especially the unborn. Another Catholic Social Teaching principle I found in this book was rights and responsibilities. In the story, a lot of the women’s reasoning behind getting an abortion was because they weren’t prepared financially or emotionally. I sympathized with their stories but realized that they are responsible for themselves. If they weren’t prepared to take care of a baby, then they shouldn’t be having sex. If they believe they are responsible enough to have sex, then they should also be responsible enough to care for a child. The last Catholic Social Teaching principle I found in this book was to care for God’s creation. In the book, it talks about a woman who saw her aborted baby and realized that it was an actual human person. In that moment, she realized that she was responsible for mutilating God’s creation and guilt overcame her. We are all responsible for taking care of God’s creation. Whether it be a flower or a person, it’s still God’s creation and we should all respect and care for it.
