Former Planned Parenthood employee is Redeemed by Grace
Author recounts her experience working for the nation’s largest abortion provider and reversion to Catholicism
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 17, 2015 – Since the Supreme Court’s landmark Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion throughout the United States, an astounding 56 million lives have been aborted, many of which occurred at Planned Parenthood clinics. Countless women have been deceived by Planned Parenthood’s “helping women” mantra, including Ramona Treviño, a devout Catholic who chronicles her compelling story of involvement in the grisly abortion industry and how and why she courageously left the gruesome business in her book, REDEEMED BY GRACE: A Catholic Women’s Journey to Planned Parenthood and Back.
Treviño has experienced numerous trials and tribulations throughout her life, including an unexpected pregnancy at 16 years old, which led to her decision to drop out of high school, and an abusive marriage, which ended in divorce, and her arduous time as manager of a Planned Parenthood facility in Sherman, Texas.
Her experience of having worked at Planned Parenthood was life-altering; it opened her eyes to the destructive culture and adverse effects of the abortion industry, and led to her eventual reversion to the Catholic Church.
REDEEMED BY GRACE tells of Treviño’s struggles to reconcile her identity as a daughter of God with a world that sends conflicting messages concerning the source of our dignity and happiness. It is the honest and heartfelt account of a woman who, with the help of grace (and Catholic radio), strove to overcome the wounds of her own past while becoming an agent of healing for others.

“‘I’m done!’ Those were the words an overjoyed Ramona Treviño said to me after turning in her resignation to the largest abortion provider in America, Planned Parenthood,” says Shawn Carney, director and co-Founder of 40 Days for Life. “She now courageously shares her inspiring journey in this must-read book. Ramona’s beautiful story shows us that the Church is our true home, and no matter how far we may stray from it, God’s infinite mercy can always bring us back.”
Treviño feels especially compelled to spread the pro-life message to the Hispanic community, given her heritage and that Hispanic women account for 25 percent of all abortions, according to the Guttmacher Institute.
