Join us as we celebrate Mercy and raise funds to support Mercy House Ministries.

You’re invited to join us for an evening of inspiration and practical action to help support the ongoing efforts of Mercy House Ministries as we continue to provide hope and help to single pregnant women in the DFW area. The evening will consist of a time of mingling and light hors d’oeuvres, followed by stories of lives changed and a retrospective look at 25 years of ministry to single pregnant women. Our keynote speaker, Abby Johnson, is a well-known activist in the fight for the life of the unborn and will be sharing her story and the incredible importance of the work that ministries like Mercy House are doing in the world today. We’ll close the evening with an opportunity to engage in support of our ministry. There will also be a raffle and the prize will be drawn before everyone is dismissed. We hope you’ll join us – more details for the event can be found below.

About Our Keynote Speaker: Abby Johnson

Abby Johnson has always had a fierce determination to help women in need. It was this desire that led Abby to a career with Planned Parenthood, our nation’s largest abortion provider, and caused her to flee the organization and become an outspoken advocate for the pro-life movement. During her eight years with Planned Parenthood, Abby quickly rose in the organization’s ranks and became a clinic director. She was increasingly disturbed by what she witnessed. Abortion was a product Planned Parenthood was selling, not an unfortunate necessity that they fought to decrease.

All of that changed on September 26, 2009, when Abby was asked to assist with an ultrasound-guided abortion. She watched in horror as a 13-week baby fought and ultimately lost its life at the hand of the abortionist. At that moment, the full realization of what abortion was and what she had dedicated her life to washed over Abby, and a dramatic transformation took place. Desperate and confused, Abby sought help from a local pro-life group. She swore that she would begin to advocate for life in the womb and expose abortion for what it truly is.

The media continues to be intensely interested in Abby’s story, as well as her continued efforts to advocate for the unborn and help clinic workers escape the abortion industry. Abby shared her story at the 2020 Republican National Convention and is a frequently requested guest on Fox News and a variety of other shows. She is the author of the nationally best-selling book and movie adaptation Unplanned, which chronicles both her experiences within Planned Parenthood and her dramatic exit.
