Planned Parenthood Worker Texts a Pastor and Gets More Than She Bargained For


Editor’s Note: Our readers responded strongly to this story when it originally ran; we’re reposting it here in case you missed it.

A Christian preacher responded with grace and compassion to a Planned Parenthood text by offering to engage in an open dialogue with the abortion cartel.

Keith Foskey, a pastor at the Sovereign Grace Family Church in Jacksonville, Florida, shared the text exchange on the social media platform X on May 8.

“This is Adrianna with Planned Parenthood,” the message read. “We know the power of storytelling to protect our repro rights, especially after the 6-week ban ruling.

“Do you have a personal abortion story you’d like to share with the team and the community?”

Instead of scolding or lecturing the abortion advocate, Foskey reacted with kindness and goodwill.

“Adrianna, I’m glad you sent me this message,” the pastor’s text began. “I know you think that what you are doing is good.

“But please hear me when I say that you are asking me to endorse the killing of the weakest and most vulnerable members of our society, pre-born babies. This is a violation of God’s command that we do not murder.”

Should a nationwide abortion ban be enacted?

Foskey then urged the Planned Parenthood representative to reconsider her position on abortion, saying it’s never too late to do the right thing.

“I urge you to please turn from your support of this ungodliness,” he wrote. “I don’t know you personally, but I do know that your soul is in peril if you do not repent and trust in Jesus Christ.

“He provides forgiveness to all who trust in Him. If you want to know more, I am open to having a conversation.”

Foskey earned praise from his followers, who commended his compassionate approach.

“This is a great response,” one person wrote. “Thank you for leading by example.”

Others agreed, saying Foskey set a great example with his deft handling of the situation.

It’s likely the text was an automated message Planned Parenthood sent in the hopes of recruiting donors or foot soldiers for its cause.

That said, it never hurts to respond with decency and class, because you never know who might be influenced by your example.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 


That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.


Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.


The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”


All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.


Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 


A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.


We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
