"Protesters Don't Bother Us"

Someone who lives in Las Vegas has been begging for Christians to go with her to sow seeds at the oldest killing place in the city, but, tragically, no one will join her. It's called the Birth Control Care Center:

Here it is: They kill babies up to 24 Weeks.
Take a look at babies in the womb:

Note that the website brags: Protesters don't bother us, as they have no access closer than one block. This place would be a challenge to witness at ... but nothing is impossible with God. Amen?

I just called the 800 number and spoke with a clinic worker at the Birth Control Care Center killing place. Her name is Kamora. I told her that I was 23 weeks pregnant. She explained that it would be a 3 day procedure and I would have to pay $2520. Kamora said that they are open Monday thru Friday 8am-4pm Saturday 7:45am. Ultrasound is first. It's $50 but is applied toward the price of killing the baby.

Kamora said that here's how it would go:
Day 1: Cervical dilator --- (laminaria inserted)
Day 2 Abortionist will check to see if I'm dilated enough. If I am, he will go ahead and murder the infant. If more dilation is needed he will insert more laminaria into my cervix and send me home.
Day 3 Baby is murdered. I will be given twilight sedation.

Patte: Is the baby alive when he does the procedure?
Clinic Worker: Yes.
Patte: Do I have to push the baby out or does the doctor pull?
Clinic Worker: The doctor will pull.
Patte: Will the baby come out whole or does the doctor have to pull the baby apart?
Clinic worker: He will have to take the baby apart.
Patte: In pieces?
Clinic Worker: Yes.
Patte Does the baby get any anesthetic so it won't hurt her?
Clinic Worker: No.
Patte: Will the baby feel pain? (See: Clinic worker: Yes. It's a full baby.
Patte: Have you ever seen a procedure at 23 weeks?
Clinic Worker: No.
Patte: I don't blame you. I wouldn't want to see it either. It must be awful. How long have you worked there?
Clinic Worker: About a year.
Patte: What would happen if baby is born alive?
Clinic worker: The baby won't be born alive.
Patte: Why not? I have a friend whose baby was born at 23 weeks. She's nine years old now. Clinic Worker: Because of all the medications that you are given.
Patte: Oh.
Clinic worker. The Dr is very good. He's very experienced.
Patte: This is so awful. I feel bad about the baby. I can feel my baby moving inside me. My sister was with me when I had the ultrasound today. She cried. I cried too. I saw my baby. She is a little girl. My sister wants me to go through adoption.
Clinic Worker: I can give you information about adoption if you'd like.

At this point in the conversation Kamora was interrupted and put me on hold. An older clinic worker got on the phone, she said: Listen, you need to come in here right away. We need to do an ultrasound before we can give you any information. We are open Monday - Friday 8am-4pm & Saturday is earlier, around 7:45am. You don't need an appointment.

Patte: Well, the other lady was going to give me a number for an adoption agency.
Older Clinic Worker: We don't have adoption agency numbers. All we can give you is a woman's resource center number.
Patte: Okay, I'll take it.
Older Clinic Worker: 366.1247

Quite a mission field, eh?

Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to die;save them as they stagger to their death.Don’t excuse yourself by saying, “Look, we didn’t know.”For God understands all hearts, and He sees you.He who guards your soul knows you knew.He will repay all people as their actions deserve.
Proverbs 24:10-12 (New Living Translation)

What better place to bring the gospel of life to the lost than where the devil gathers them together? We hope to get out there in the New Year.

Let Christian everywhere leave their padded pews and go out to the killing places en masse.

I am often asked the following question;

"Don't you believe babies go to heaven when they die? That means they're better off anyway. In fact, if you 'rescue' them, they may grow up to be non-Christians who go to hell. Dying now is probably the best thing for them."

Evangelism by abortion . . . now there's a thought.

Nowhere is the logic of this argument expressed in Scripture. Always we are called upon to intervene for the weak and the needy, to defend their rights (Proverbs 31:8-9). Never are we to abandon them through indifference, callousness or turns of twisted logic.

Are we absolutely sure of the eternal destiny of all babies who die? The teaching of the evangelical community has been 99.9% on the side of infant salvation ... It is not an obvious teaching of Scripture. The Bible certainly does not make this as clear as is often taught from one or two proof texts. In fact, the doctrine of human depravity, developed in the early chapters of Romans, can be used to make a strong case the other way.

And the times of this ignorance God winked at;
but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

Do What Thou Wilt?

Recently a Broward County man named Christopher Welker caught two armed robbers outside his house in the middle of the night. In the midst of the scuffle he shot one young criminal dead and wounded the other. Although Welker acted in self-defense and to protect his girlfriend and their 17 month old daughter, he deeply regrets killing one of the bad guys. The police captain said;
"As far as we are concerned, it as a justified shooting. He was protecting himself ..."

Although quite a few people have told Welker that "he did the right thing", he feels conflicted. Not only is he worried about reprisals from the bad guy's friends, Welker says;
"I wish I could go back and just shoot them both in the leg ... I don't wish to take anybody's life."

The conscience of human beings tells them that murder is wrong. Even though the "victim" threatened him with a gun, Welker felt guilty about murdering a person. When a woman plans and executes her baby, it is vitally important that Christians be on hand to speak to their conscience about God's eternal command:
You shall not murder!

Welker never mentioned God but his conscience pointed him to eternal truth about murder.

Is the firm moral code of Christianity and the biblical gospel of repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ something to be ashamed of? Although the scriptures speak clearly and decisively about repentance (Acts 20:21; Mark 1:15-16, Luke 243:45-47, John 1:12; Rom 1:17, Gal 2:16, Eph 2:8-10), many churches, church goers and Christian ministries avoid the biblical gospel like the plague.

I am sending you to them to open their eyes
and turn them from darkness to light ...
~ Jesus

Sharon has been a crisis pregnancy counselor for two years. She explained how she counsels mothers who are considering abortion;
"We were trained in the Carenet approach ... if they are abortion minded, we ask if they would like infoon abortion and give them a booklet and review it with them."

This begs the question: "Info on abortion"? Information on choosing evil? There remains a glaring ommision in this "Christian" counseling. Sharon never mentioned that she provided her abortion-minded clients with biblical "Info on sin", which is exactly what murdering a pre-born child is.

I had a long talk with Maria, one of the degreed "counselors" in a Christian ministry here in Orlando. I asked Maria what she would say in response if a pregnant woman we sent to her for help said:
"I don't know what to do. I am still thinking of abortion."

The counselor said point blank; "Well, I could not tell the abortion-minded mother NOT to have an abortion.Although I am pro-life I cannot push my views on her."

Maria was unwilling to speak of abortion as an evil act of sin against a little child. Why?

Penny discovered she was pregnant when she was a senior in high school. She tells her story:
My mother was dead and my dad was an alcoholic. I had been living with a foster-mother who didn't care about me. My boyfriend was pressing for abortion. I didn't have anyone with any spiritual authority to turn to. I went to great lengths (yellow pages and over 4 hours of buses and trains) to find a nun to counsel me. When I explained my dilemma to Sister Catherine Mary, she sat quietly and looked very gently into my eyes and asked me about my feelings; "Well, Penny, what is it that you feel you should do?" I shook my head; "I really don't know sister." The nun said; "You have a very big decision to make, Penny. I cannot make it for you. You will have to listen to your heart and decide for yourself." She never mentioned GOD at all. She simply said: "You're going to have to decide what is right for you." As I the abortionist put on his gloves, I knew that I should jump up and get out of there. But I was intimidated by the "doctor" who held the cannula and the "nurse" who held my hand. I let the abortionist suck my baby apart and out of my womb. I was filled with shame as I left the place. I turned to my boyfriend and whispered; "Never again."

Although I can't blame the nun for what I paid for and did to my baby, through all the years since that abortion, I have wondered. Why the sister didn't offer me any biblical advice or good Samartian help? If she had only told me the truth. If Sister Catherine had told me what my baby looked like, explained that my child was a gift from God and that it would be murder to kill her. If she had addressed the sin of fornication with me and lovingly called me to true contrition. Catechism had taught her the necessity of repent or perish. Why didn't she share her knowledge of the holy with me? If she had cared enough about me to offer to help find me a place to stay during my pregnancy, if she had simply told me about adoption. Would that have been so hard? It seems like common sense now.

When I became a Christian five years later, my guilty soul found the truth that the nun had so cruelly withheld from me. I just love the way Jesus speaks to sinners like me. He looks into our faces and into our souls and says, "You are a sin-sick woman. You've made an idol of yourself and you are enslaved by the deceiver. Turn away from yourself and your sin. Die to yourself and turn to Me and live. I am the only One who can forgive you for all of your wicked thoughts, words and deeds. I am the Savior who will forgive and cleanse and heal the sinner who genuinely repents."

I often remember what happened to my poor baby. I pray for Sister Catherine's soul. God sent me, a pregnant mother-less girl, all the way to her that fateful day. It was a divine appointment. But Sister Catherine gave me the words of humanistic relativism, which is the counsel of death, instead of the words of Jesus, Who Himself is Truth and Life. God forgive her for the diabolical hand she had in murdering my baby."

Tanya was a long-time church goer. When she murdered her first baby by abortion, her pastor held a nice memorial service at the sea shore. Together they named the baby "Sophie" and threw flowers into the surf in a sentimental farewell. As Tanya considered killing another child her church friends her let her know that it was "up to her to do what was best". Her Christian counselor, "Miss Maureen", helped Tanya make the decision to murder her baby half-way through pregnancy. Miss Maureen even offered to counsel her two teenage children through the prolonged ordeal of a late-term labor-and-delivery execution of their little brother.

It is conversations like these that have made me realize that many Christians and pro-life ministry counselors are proponents of the "non-judgmental" "non-directive" counseling of moral relativism (Carl Rogers style) -- not biblical, Christian holy counseling. This is what is known as "covert" Christianity, but I would say that this is not Christianity at all. It's humanism. In fact, it is also found in the category of Satanism. The motto of Satanism is "Do what thou wilt." Even Wicca adds to the Satanic motto with the phrase "... but do no harm."

Many, if not most, of the people who offer pro-life and post abortion counseling are well-meaning, kind-hearted, mercy-motivated church-going people. However, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Just as we would never knowingly send an abortion-minded mother to Sister Catherine Mary or Miss Maureen, we certainly cannnot send moms who are vulnerable to murdering their babies to churches, pro-life ministries or post-abortion ministries that will not tell them the truth. Abortion is not merely about a "choice" or a "decision". Abortion is about the evil sin of murdering an innocent person. Abortion is the shedding of innocent blood. It is the taking of human life.

Think about this ....

If a person who was contemplating raping a two year old child came to a Christian "crisis pedofile ministry" would the counselor give the rapist information on how rapes are performed and review it with them? Would the counselor believe that she could not tell the rape-minded client NOT to sexually assault the toddler? Would the Christian believe that it "It isn't up to me to tell the rapist that having intercourse with a young child was wrong? They must decide for themselves that the violent assault was wrong." Would the counselor turn to the rape-minded person and say: "This is a decision you will have to make for yourself. If you do rape and even murder that baby, we will be here for you because God forgives and the baby will go to heaven."

If a ministry calls itself Christian, it must be unapologetic about the gospel. It's the gospel of LIFE and ETERNITY that is at stake here. Any church or pro-life or post-abortion ministry that teaches it's counselors that they are to refrain from speaking of abortion as child-murder and sin and avoid speaking of the necessity of genuine repentance (from fornication as well as intent to murder) is guilty of gagging the gospel of Jesus Christ. An organization may claim to be Christian, but if they fail to practice biblical principles of truth in their counseling, they fail to be Christian.

Replacing or suppressing the Gospel of repentance and faith is a distortion of the Biblical model. Fundamentally, this sort of counseling amounts to spiritual neglect because the woman is made to feel cared for (like Penny and Tanya) but is left in the darkness and depravity of her own sin. The hell-bent mother who is full of malice and forethought is given the false impression that God will hear her prayers and have compassion on her, when the scriptures teach that the prayer of the wicked is an abomination! (Psalm 66:18, Proverbs 28:9) The first prayer that God hears is the prayer of genuine repentance.

In the midst of all of this, the precious innocent child is left without the intervention of a Christian advocate to become another victim of pre-meditated murder. Adding insult to injury, the guilty mothers remain under the judgment of God and continue to store up wrath against themselves in the day of judgment. According to the doctrine of degrees of punishment, guilty fornicators and child-murderers suffer a greater penalty in hell for their sin if they fail to repent of their evil and sin no more. And yet, if they were to rely on what they heard from a "Christian" they were merely making a "decision"! The truth about her sinful condition and God's command to refrain from sexual immorality and the command against the murder of His gift is essentially purposely withheld from the lost mother.

Failure to use Biblical language such a sin, murder, wrath, hell and the call to righteousness, conviction, genuine repentance and holy living is a blatant disregard for the power and authority in the scriptures regarding salvation. Who else but the devil, who was a murderer and a liar from the beginning would be behind such spiritual deception?

The Church is so comfortable
wearing its rose-colored glasses
and promoting a mercy
which must surely beinsulting to God given the the prior self-forgivenessthat people lavish on themselves.
Individuals are sosure of their individual "deal" with God, that theyare willing to bet eternity on it.
~ Carl Bibeau

The Imperitive of the Law
Wielding the divine weapons of Scripture and the Law of God (the 10 commandments) are what Christians are instructed to learn to handle as they engage women who kill their babies. Proverbs 14:27 says: "The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death." It is a holy mandate to counsel in such a way as to evoke the fear of the Lord, not comfort in sin. The gospel is a divine imperative to turn from sin, it is not an "option". God commands all men everywhere to repent or perish in their sin. Instead of merely swiping at the web the eternal Word operates as the two-edged sword, addressing the spider of the sin nature (which is a heart enslaved to sin) . If women who are killing their babies hear the message of comfort from their churches, church friends pro-life and post-abortion ministries, they become innoculated against the true gospel. When they hear us preach Truth to them from the sidewalks outside the abortuaries, they assume that we don't understand grace. The artificial message of grace without the law and repentance undermines the Truth and makes women who kill feel absolved of guilt because other "Christians" have already "understood" and will stand by them and welcome them back after they murder their babies.

We bring the gospel of life to the abortion-bound women and men at a notorious abortion clinic here in Orlando. Every week, without fail, without exception, we meet people who are killing their children who tell us that
A) They are Christians and
B) Jesus forgives.

This includes the abortionists and the abortion clinic workers! It's time for the light of the gospel to invade the darkness instead of soothing the God-given conscience through religious platitudes. About 40% of women today have killed a baby by abortion. Statistics indicate that nearly half of the women we meet at the killing place have already had at least ONE abortion already. They are returning to murder again! Women are not having LESS abortions, they are having MORE. In 2004 Maryland reported that 17% of abortive women had 4 abortions or more!

Tanya, the mother who killed two of her children with compassionate complicity from "Christians", has some penetrating words for Christians who murder babies or fail to intervene in the killing of a child:

"I WAS one of those Christians. I was counseled by obviously pro choice 'Christians'. In my heart it all felt so wrong. Then I consulted more Christians. Everything they said went something like this; "This is not any easy decision. It looks like the best of all the bad "choices" you have available. You will be forgiven. Yes your baby will go to heaven."

I heard ALL of this ... and I bought it. I needed to believe something. I needed to hear it from people who had more religious and psychological knowledge than I possessed. I sought out Christian leaders, Christian counselors... and that is what I got.

No scriptural references. No sixth commandment. No hope that anything good could come from having this "unwanted child". In short, the message was clear; "Kill have no other real will be okay will be forgiven."

It happens everyday. It is happening to some family as I type ...

The churches are so twisted in their faith. When the heck did become politically correct to overpower the teaching of Christ?!!!!

Don't get me wrong. You know me. You know I hold myself completely accountable for my sins. I simply want to point out that when a woman or couple feels LLLOOOOSSSSSSSST,
society and ESPECIALLY the modern day church, fails them completely. Women in crisis pregnancies are terrified, they cannot think clearly. They turn to someone they feel they might trust for guidance BECAUSE they know that abortion is WRONG,WRONG,WRONG. They know it in their hearts and their minds but they are force fed the "It's okay, it's your choice" medicine.
This bad medicine message gets confirmed by family, friends, mates, and yes their very own spiritual leaders. Of course you think it must be okay. Everyone is pressuring you or giving you blanket permission. Even your pastor. They give you the answer you NEVER hoped to hear in your secret heart. All you wanted was for people to show you it would be okay to have your baby... It's not a lot to ask for. It IS nearly impossible to find.

Now that I stand on the other side, I see that our churches are in grave error. How can they condone the killing of a child? How can they nearly encourage a mother to break a commandment? ... What are they afraid of? Losing membership? Look at these verses! Do they not apply to the church as much as they apply to each individual?

John 15: 20-21 see also Ephesians 5:11, and Ephesians 6:13-17. If I and others are commanded to do this, what gives our leaders blanket exemption?

If just one family member, friend or church counselor said something like..."Tanya, you are not alone. God wants you to have this child. He is a beautiful gift. I will not abandon you. I have nothing to offer you except myself. But, you can call me when you feel weak, frightened or uncertain. It will all become a blessing soon Tanya, and I will pray for you and with you. "

All I needed was ONE person to be on my side. Miss Maureen, my "Christian" counselor told me how likely it was that the father of my baby would abuse him, how if I had my baby my entire life would be in a constant state of chaos. Everyone around me just painted our sky darker and darker, with my every plea.

Until this changes, women will continue to ignore their consciences, trying to do what is "best" for everyone else around them. Our loved ones make us feel as though WE have BURDENED them if we want and love the child in our bellies. It is sometimes percieved as SELFISH not to KILL the baby.

But, what about my baby??! I told myself, and everyone seemed to confirm that ... it was okay.. maybe even kind to kill him. NOW, I know better."

Over 5000 women who killed their babies say "I'm Glad!"

Contrary to popular post-abortion ministries materials many women do not regret murdering their little babies. Over 15 years of counseling thousands of women who murdered their babies by abortion I have found that many of them are glad that they "got rid of their baby" and some have even told me that they wished that they had aborted the son or daughter that they kept. Almost half of the mothers who killed their babies by abortion went on to murder again, and again. These same women also encourage other mothers to destroy the children they are carrying.

This should be no suprise to those of us whose lives and minds are instructed by holy scriptures. Women, just like men, are sinful by nature. Aborting women are not basically "good". When confronted with the opportunity to benefit themselves, even when it requires shedding the innocent blood of their own children, mothers often choose to do evil and sacrifice their baby instead of sacrificing themselves to love and raise a little boy or girl or choose a loving adoptive couple to raise the child.

Certainly this Ms Magazine petition (see below) was written in response to the Silent No More Campaign of women who are willing to come forward to say that they regret the murder of their innocent children. Sadly, we had it coming. What can you expect when you make a campaign all about the suffering and victimhood of women who kill their sons and daughters instead of about the real victims, the babies who were brutally dismembered and born alive into toilets through all nine months of pregnancy? It would be better for women who have slain their young to come forward and say; "I am guilty of murdering my innocent baby and I take full responsibility before God for my dreadful, pre-meditated sin of shedding innocent blood."

Until we take the fight against abortion out of the realm of humanistic relativism and put it back where it belongs, as a willful violation of God's clear command: You shall not murder, we will only be arguing tit for tat, she said/she said, one woman's word (and situation) against another. We must not be ashamed of Jesus and His gospel, which calls the women (and men) who fornicate and slaughter the precious babies that God allows them to conceive to "Repent or perish!" if we refuse to rightly proclaim the gospel, which is in effect, rejecting the preaching of it, we cannot expect Jesus to honor our efforts to abolish child-killing. It is the GOSPEL that brings light and life to lost souls, not therapeutic counseling.
"I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish."
That, my friends, is the timeless message of Truth that Jesus preached. Why should those of us who claim to be His followers teach differently? The right response to the guilt and shame of murdering a child has been laid out by our Creator, Who commands that we confess and forsake our sin and surrender to God through the only sacrifice He accepts ... Jesus Christ, the Savior of those who stop making excuses.

Women Sign 'We Had Abortions' PetitionOct 03 2:29 PM US/Eastern

By DAVID CRARYAP National Writer
At a pivotal time in the abortion debate, Ms. magazine is releasing its fall issue next week with a cover story titled "We Had Abortions," accompanied by the names of thousands of women nationwide who signed a petition making that declaration.
The publication coincides with what the abortion-rights movement considers a watershed moment for its cause. Abortion access in many states is being curtailed, activists are uncertain about the stance of the U.S. Supreme Court, and South Dakotans vote Nov. 7 on a measure that would ban virtually all abortions in their state, even in cases of rape and incest.
"All this seems very dire," said Eleanor Smeal, president of the Feminist Majority Foundation, which publishes Ms.
"We have to get away from what the politicians are saying," she said, "and get women's lives back in the picture."
Even before the issue reaches newsstands Oct. 10, anti-abortion activists have been decrying it. Judie Brown, president of the American Life League, wrote in a commentary that when she saw a Ms. announcement of the project, "the evil practically jumped right off the page."
Ms. executive editor Katherine Spillar said more than 5,000 women have signed the petition so far, heeding its appeal to declare they are unashamed of the choice they made. The magazine itself had room for only 1,016 names, she said Tuesday, but all of them will be viewable online as Ms. encourages other women to continue adding their signatures.
Ms. says it will send the petition to Congress, the White House and state legislators.
The signatories include Ms. founder Gloria Steinem, comedian Carol Leifer, and actresses Kathy Najimy and Amy Brenneman, but most are not famous names.
Tyffine Jones, 27, of Jackson, Miss., said she had no hesitation about signing _ although she lives in a state where restrictions on abortion are tough and all but one abortion clinic has been closed.
Jones said she got an abortion 10 years ago, enduring harassment from protesters when she entered the clinic, in order to finish high school. She went on to become the first member of her family to graduate from college, and hopes at some point to attend law school.
"I wanted to do something bigger with myself. I didn't want to be stopped by anything," she said in a telephone interview.
Another signatory, Debbie Findling of San Francisco, described her difficult decision last year to have an abortion after tests showed that she would bear a son with Down syndrome.
"I felt it was my right to make the decision, but having that right doesn't make the decision any easier," she said. "It was the hardest decision I've ever made."
Findling, 42, is married, with a 5-year-old daughter, and has been trying to get pregnant again while pursuing her career as a philanthropic foundation executive.
She says too many of her allies in the abortion-rights movement tend to minimize, at least publicly, the psychological impact of abortion.
"It's emotionally devastating," she said in a phone interview. "I don't regret my decision, but I regret having been put in the position to have to make that choice. It's something I'll live with for the rest of my life."
Findling strongly supports the Ms. petition, and believes women who have had abortions need to be more open about their decisions. She has written an essay about her own experience, and plans to include it in an anthology she hopes to publish next year.
Ms. mounted this kind of petition drive when it was first published. Its debut issue in 1972 included a manifesto signed by 53 women, many of them well-known, declaring that they had undergone abortions despite state laws outlawing the procedure.
The next year, the Supreme Court issued its Roe v. Wade decision establishing abortion rights nationwide. Some abortion-rights activists are concerned that Roe could be overturned, either by the current court or if President Bush has the opportunity to appoint one more justice.
Smeal said Ms. staffers called the women who signed the petition to verify their information and be sure they were willing to have their names in print.
"The women thanked us for doing this," Smeal said. "They wanted to tell their stories."

The Heart of Terrorism in America

Who will rise up for me against the evildoers?
Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? ...
Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law,
Have fellowship with You?
They gather together against the life of the righteous,
and condemn innocent blood ...
He has brought on them their own iniquity,
And shall cut them off in their own wickedness,
The Lord our God shall cut them off.
Psalm 94:16,20-23

Let us pray that the Lord continues to raise up an army of His lightbearers to bring the gospel to the churches and to the streets of America and sound the alarm for our nation to cease fire on her innocent children in the womb. There is no way that the God of Creation can bless a country that slays it's own sons and daughters, the little imperiled lambs. We don't have to worry so much about foreign terrorists as the terror of the bondage of sin and murder in the heart of our nation. We are practicing the way of death, with infant sacrifice sanctioned by our nation's people and her government. Friends, we do not have God's favor whilst we are slaves to our own lawlessness, of sex and murder, and are full of bloodguilt. Can we rely on God's mercy? Will He look the other way while we slaughter the innocent on one hand and praise Christ with the other? "I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish." ~ Jesus

Someone just sent me a map of the Islamic Terrorist Network in America. Many states were highlighted in red. Great cities were marked as Hezbollah, Al Qaeda and Hamas' radical encampments. It would be more helpful if someone would put together a map of all of the USA's killing places (abortuaries), where nearly 4000 innocent people perish daily and 1.5 million infants are slaughtered each year. Their blood cries out from the ground for justice. This terror in the womb happens in the shadow of thousands of steeples. We are a disgrace in the sight of God.

Unless or until America repents and makes abortion what it is, the pre-meditated crime of homocidal murder, she should not, she cannot beg for God's mercy and blessings or for protection against her enemies. It would be far better, and more honest, to cry out for the gift of genuine repentance for wielding the sword against the weakest most defenseless members of our society.

... the Lord hates ... hands that shed innocent blood. Proverbs 6:16 & 17

America, look to your own house!

May we begin to fear God enough to obey Him.

It's Not Going To Be Easy...

After almost 30 years of effort, no one can rightly claim that the pro-life movement has not done everything humanely possible to make America’s clergy and politicians do the right thing.

But it is increasingly obvious ... our resolve is no match for their cowardice.

The fact is, the pro-life effort is going to succeed whether they are on board or not, and every ounce of energy we squander trying to get them to do the right thing is an ounce we don’t have for the battle against abortion.

...I want to predict that a time will come when every preacher, every priest, and every politician in America will be pushing and shoving to get to the front lines of the pro-life effort. I can even tell you when that seemingly unlikely event will occur.

On the day it becomes obvious to them that victory over the abortion holocaust is at hand, these guys will come running out from behind their mamma’s skirts, grinning from ear to ear, giving high fives to everyone they can get in front of and slapping every back in sight. Then, with their arms draped over our shoulders, they’ll start crowing about how they were with us all along.

Of course, in the spirit of the prodigal son, God will expect us to bite our tongues and accept them as our brothers and sisters in Christ.

I tell you all this now so you can start practicing in front of a mirror. It’s not going to be easy.

And Jonathan said to the young man that bare his armour,
'Come, and let us go over unto the garrison of these uncircumcised:
it may be that the LORD will work for us:
for there is no restraint to the LORD
to save by many or by few.'
1Samuel 14:6

... we are but few and feeble then to believe that God can not only save us, but save by us ...
Let this strengthen the weak and encourage the timid:
let it be pleaded with God for the enforcing of our petitions
and with ourselves for the silencing of our fears:
It is nothing with God to help, whether with many or with those that have no power, 2 Chr. 14:11.

Why Post Abortion Support is Unbiblical

A man tormented by the guilt of murder will be a fugitive till death; let no one support him. Proverbs 28:17

It is God, not us ourselves or our "feelings" which determines what is right and what is wrong.  God has not left us to decide about the morality of murdering an innocent person. It is no secret. There can be no doubt. God has declared in His commandments Thou Shall Not Murder. Murder an innocent person, which includes perhaps most especially the murder of pre-born children (who are of all people the MOST innocent and blameless), is NOT right, it is wrong. Always. Abortion is not simply a 'decision' or a 'choice' or a 'mistake,' killing a baby is a violent act of aggression. It is sin. All religions of the world forbid the shedding of innocent blood with the exception of one. Satanism. Satan requires the sacrifice of infants.

     The Bible makes it clear that God has been so kind as to place His holy law in the hearts of men and women. Rom 2:15 declares: "Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another ..." and Rom 1:20 explains: "For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse ..." Thus, we may conclude that mothers who murder their children by abortion are without excuse before God and men. Mothers hear the voice of their God-given conscience before and after they butcher their young. In fact, the word conscience means "with knowledge". Aborting women kill their babies with knowledge that it is wrong. Every woman who murders her child does so with keen intention and malice and forethought in a blatant and grievous violation of God's Law. God is gracious to warn those who murder innocent people what will become of them. They will NOT be allowed into heaven. A place is reserved for them in the lake of fire in hell with the devil. (See Rev. 21:8 & 22:15)
     Here at Sanctuary Ministries we believe that we have been commissioned by Christ to provide a holy witness to abortion-bound women and their children. We take His charge very seriously. God has given us the option to seek Him as to whether we must continue to engage the murdering woman who has already slain her innocent baby. (Although we recognize that at least half of the aborting women we counsel have already killed one or more children.) God also prescribes for us the manner in which we are to engage the murderer. One of the very clearest biblical mandates for how to treat a murderer is Proverbs 28:17 (at the top of the page) in which the Word of God expresses the recommendation that no one should support a person who is guilty of murder. In a powerful commentary on this passage of Scripture the respected Bible expositor Matthew Henry explains:

"The murderer shall be haunted with terrors. None shall desire to save him from deserved punishment, nor pity him."

Henry also notes:

"What continual frights those are subject to that go on in wicked ways. Guilt in the conscience makes men a terror to themselves, so that they are ready to flee when none pursues; like one that absconds for debt, who thinks every one he meets a bailiff. Though they pretend to be easy, there are secret fears which haunt them wherever they go, so that they fear where no present or imminent danger is, Ps. 53:5.

Those that have made God their enemy, and know it, cannot but see the whole creation at war with them, and therefore can have no true enjoyment of themselves, no confidence, no courage, but a fearful looking for of judgment. Sin makes men cowards."

 In Proverbs 28:17 we are clearly instructed NOT TO SUPPORT the murdering mother, who is only a fugitive from justice in this life, for she will pay dearly for her sin in the life and death to come. God desires that we allow the God-given conscience (and in the case of murdering mothers, the maternal instinct, which is also a divine and holy gift of His grace) to do its work of reproving of sin and accusing the woman who kills of her mean offense toward God and her little one. As Christians we are often strangely tempted to pity the woman who has murdered her son or daughter. I use the word tempted purposely and particularly because I believe that it is the diabolical temptation of the forces of darkness that oppose God, namely the world, the flesh & the devil, which teach and condition us to comfort the mother who kills. This patronizing post-abortion support can and often does result in our consoling and comforting the murderer (typical humanistic therapeutic response) rather than agreeing with God and the voice of her conscience and warning her to flee from her sin and the wrath to come by calling her to genuine biblical repentance and a life of holiness unto God. Warning an abortive woman, before and after the murder of her child (or children) is the biblical response. According to II Chronicles 19:10 many passages in Ezekiel 3: 33, God WARNS US that if we FAIL to warn the murdering mother, we are guilty of the blood of that woman and her child OURSELVES. I feel that this is so important and essential to communicate because God will judge us according to how well we obey His commands. The blood of those who are perishing will be on our hands if we FAIL in our duty to warn. We must not be derelict. We must not disobey. We must not commiserate the murdering mothers. We must warn them.

     It is helpful to remember that the mother's sin of murdering her baby is never abiding alone in the child-killer. The woman who plans and executes her baby is usually (but not always) involved in the habitual sin of fornication, and sexual immorality is a very serious transgression of the Law. No fornicator shall inherit the kingdom of heaven! Many abortive women are adulterers as well. Add to that the use of drugs, lying, stealing, dishonoring parents, cursing the Lord, etc, she is a worker of iniquity, a lawbreaker. LOST and hell-bent on pursuing her own pleasure with little or no thoughts for others or for God. Women who murder their babies are self-seeking, self-gratifying and self-indulgent. They are sinners through and through. [It is interesting to note that the same is true of those who work in the abortion killing business, but there doesn't appear to be as much sympathy for them in the Christian community.] It seems obvious to Christians (and even to society) that one shouldn't console or comfort a person who does crack or molests children. We understand that it is good and right and healthy for shame to be associated with and attached to the perpetrator. Indeed, in violation of the law, citizens who are uncovered as having been involved in these activities would be arrested and charged with a crime. All would agree that it is just for them and good for the community if they are penalized and required to "do their time".

     God speaks to us through the light of His Law. When well-meaning Christians support women who have murdered their babies, they are fulfilling the old adage "killing them with kindness". I am afraid that it is true in this case that "the road to hell is paved with good intentions". It is more than mere folly to palliate or extenuate the sin of murdering an innocent child by offering the murdering mother such commonly heard platitudes as: "You did what you thought was right" "You did the best you knew under the circumstances and the pressures you were under" "Don't blame yourself" "We know you are grieving." "You are already forgiven" "I love you" and even "Jesus loves you." When I hear those things come from the lips of Christians and extended to women who have murdered their precious, voiceless, helpless infant, I literally shudder. It is so near to excusing and even justifying the sin of child-murder that I fear for these hapless Christians. Words like that dismiss and dishonor the humanity of the child who suffered and died, and they dishonor and, even more importantly, they misrepresent God. In his commentary on Pro 28:4, which teaches: "They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them" our friend and brother Matthew Henry notes:
Those that praise the wicked make it to appear that they do themselves forsake the law, and go contrary to it, for that curses and condemns the wicked. Wicked people will speak well of one another, and so strengthen each others hands in their wicked ways, hoping thereby to silence the clamour of their own consciences and to serve the interests of the devil's kingdom, which is not done by any thing so effectually as by keeping vice in reputation. 2. Those that do indeed make conscience of the law of God themselves will, in their places, vigorously oppose sin, and bear their testimony against it, and do what they can to shame and suppress it. They will reprove the works of darkness, and silence the excuses which are made for those works, and do what they can to bring gross offenders to punishment, that others may hear and fear.

     Most women who murder their babies quickly go on to do what most unrepentant sinners do, they recommend child-murder to other mothers! This evil behavior is perfectly described by God in Romans 1:32: "Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." Willful rebellion and lawlessness will lead to the invocation of more wrath being stored up for her in the day of judgment and lead to a further hardening of the heart and the conscience. But by the behavior of Christians one would think that the murdering mother has somehow earned MORE pity from God instead of greater punishment. In addition, it appears that Christians think that somehow these murderers will be a exception to the biblical description of the result of sin and rather than go on to become more callous to murder that they will be extremely sensitive to the wrongdoing of murder. According to God, that thinking is BACKWARDS. Sin has the opposite affect on the one who sins than Christians who pity women who murder seem to think. Murdering a baby makes many women HARDER toward their future children and the children of others. It also makes them more casual about other kinds of sin.

     There is something called holy caution and it's benefits are great. It is our privilege and honor to WARN women who murder their infants so that they might FEAR the Lord and experience the beginning of wisdom. While one would be "tempted" (there's that word again) to believe that you can make a murderous mother "happy" by consoling her, it is, in fact, the opposite. Henry observes: "Happy is the man who always keeps up in his mind a holy awe and reverence of God, his glory, goodness, and government, who is always afraid of offending God and incurring his displeasure, who keeps conscience tender and has a dread of the appearance of evil ..." The truth is, God is not concerned that we are happy or that murdering mothers are happy. He wants to make us HOLY! When Christians placate women who murder their children by verbally "hugging" them, they are actually doing the opposite of what they intend. They add to the danger of the woman's soul by helping her to build an altar to HERSELF, which is one of sinful presumption. This can and often does serve to harden her heart, mock her just fear of God and defy the judgment of God. This presumption will be her ruin. After these well-meaning Christians (not to mention their unbelieving friends and family) have lavished the murdering mother with pity and consolation, many of these women will experience a self-satisfying contentment that " all is well" and even more than well, for all the attention they are getting. I have even met women who bought themselves gifts of consolation and reward (jewelry, massages, a new outfit) to remember the "difficulties" of the experience of murdering their babies. "Be good to yourself", they hear from Christians and tell themselves and one another. "After all, you've been through so much. Pamper yourself. You deserve it after such an ordeal!" To illustrate this phenomenon to the extreme some women who murder their babies are even purchasing "abortion dolls". These are little miniature likenesses to babies at different stages of gestation. Both women who are planning the murder of their babies AND women who have already murdered their child by abortion are buying a doll that matches the gestation of their own victims to have a memento of their experience of slaughtering. They enshrine the experience of murdering their baby! In fact, you will have no trouble finding voices of post-abortive women who call killing an infant a "woman's sacrament". Indeed the devil would agree. Abortion is a sacrament of Satan.

     What is the biblical, holy response to the women who murder their babies? Do not pity the murderer. Do not offer her condolences. She hired an assassin to shed the innocent blood of her child, for heaven's sake! She violated her God-given conscience, which spoke the holy Law to her. If God brought Christians into her path to reach out to help her and give her holy counsel BEFORE she murdered her baby, she is DOUBLY guilty. And do not forget ADOPTION! Randy Alcorn wisely noted that "There is no such thing as an unwanted child. Only unwanting adults." The murdered child is a wanted child. Every single woman who plans and executes her son or daughter REFUSED to allow any of the thousands of couples who wanted her baby to become his loving, forever parents.

What the murdering mom did was indefensible and she is without excuse.

Proverbs 28:17 warns us NOT to comfort, aid or abet the murdering mother. Matthew Henry explains:
This agrees with that ancient law, Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed (Gen. 9:6), and proclaims, 1. The doom of the shedder of blood. He that has committed murder, though he flees for his life, shall be continually haunted with terrors, shall himself flee to the pit, betray himself, and torment himself, like Cain, who, when he had killed his brother, became a fugitive and a vagabond, and trembled continually. 2. The duty of the avenger of blood, whether the magistrate or the next of kin, or whoever are concerned in making inquisition for blood, let them be close and vigorous in the prosecution, and let it not be bought off. Those that acquit the murderer, or do any thing to help him off, come in sharers in the guilt of blood; nor can the land be purged from blood but by the blood of him that shed it, Num. 35:33.

     But, you say " What if the woman 'feels sorry'? What if she is 'feeling guilty'? My friends, the mother who has murdered her infant SHOULD feel sorry! Do not rush to relieve her! Like all murderers, the woman who has hacked her own son or daughter to death or had him pulled whole or delivered alive into a toilet IS GUILTY, so she SHOULD feel guilty because she IS GUILTY! Her guilt is legitimate and healthy! Please, do not make the mistake of presuming that because she is feeling "sorry" that the murdering mother is genuinely repentant. The Bible describes a counterfeit repentance. There is a sorrow that is worldly (self-pity) which leads to death which II Corinthians 7:10 speaks of: "For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death." In my first-hand observations of thousands of aborting and post-abortive women each year for over 14 years, "worldly sorrow" affects as many as half of the women who kill their babies to at least some degree. (The rest of the women are "glad" and even "exhilirated" and feel "empowered" by the murder of their infant.) The ones who feel "sorry" usually only express this in a temporary and self-serving way. This is made plain and obvious and proven by the fact that studies of post abortive women (from several years ago) revealed that half the women who kill one child by abortion go on to kill other children. [Note: By my own personal face-to-face inquiries of aborting women I believe that far more than half kill again and that more women are having multiple abortions in America now than any other time in history. We may yet catch up to the Russian women who murder their babies more than any other mothers in the world.] I cannot help but wonder ... How long will the Christian community and post-abortion ministries continue saying the same inane secular humanistic therapeutic things to aborting women and still expect different results?

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 1:7 (see also Ps 111:10, Pr. 9:10)

     How long will we be fools ourselves and bring foolishness instead of fear to the women who kill their babies? We must forsake our rebellion and do what God requires! Warn murdering mothers!
Women who murder their babies certainly need to hear the biblical gospel, and be warned to " Repent or perish ". May you hear His voice clearly and respond in obedience, experiencing the fear of the Lord and harkening to the strict instructions of God in reaching those murdering mothers are perishing while it is still day. May you and thousands of those you engage with the gospel live to praise Him with their lips and their life both now and forevermore.
Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust. Psalm 40:4
True and False Repentance by Charles G. Finney

Thursday, September 14, 2006


By Fr. Francis G. McCloskeyAugust 12,
Are we at best culturally irrelevant, at worst half-pagan? Your silent pulpit was part of the mix in which the church succumbed with hardly a whimper as Hollywood, Madison Avenue, wealthy foundations and ACLU judges arbitrarily switched rules of right and wrong, corrupted public information pools, lobotomized university faculties, and cajoled mainline denominations into if you can't beat 'em join 'em. It took 100 years for the Nietzchean transvaluation to declare victory. The one obstacle neither he nor his followers could negotiate -- the Christian Church -- did not collapse until this generation. A shroud of blindness fell upon the denominations. The pulpits went silent. The Pilgrims have been betrayed.
Therefore after Planned Parenthood murders children and grandchildren in the neighborhood, like an insatiable monster it then pursues survivor children into the neighborhood schools to corrupt them. This takes place under the corporate nose of silent clergy and counter-evangelized parents. No wonder home-school is a preferred option among Godly parents when godless sex educators (sic) enter classrooms. With the sweet reasonableness of planned deception they impart to children tendentious teachings which violate their religious faith and civic inheritance. Say what you will about previous generations of clergy, this is one area where they would not have failed and did not fail. They would have put the fear of God into the PP sexmongers and anyone else who would dare to corrupt the children. The same cannot be said for us. But then previous clergy were not beguiled by television.
Classroom sexmongering is an evil attack on the innocence of our children. Anti-God, anti-church, anti-parent, it is the New Testament monster-killer of the Christ child (Rev 12:4). If they fail to butcher Him in the womb they leave no stone unturned to corrupt His innocence. Planned Parenthood has a frenzied hatred of innocence.
Church bureaucrats who should have known better found themselves intimidated by the ACLU's relentless but bold pursuit of a godless society. It is time for Christians to wake up to the damage done by these bureaucrats who have even been known to connive in the defeat of the Gospel through political ideologies and liaisons. It is time for pastors in the field to abandon bingo, bazaars, raffles, suppers and feel-good preaching (See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Denounce No Evil) and savor the unmitigated and unadulterated gospel of Jesus Christ.
It is time to confess that we preachers allowed ourselves to become spiritually neutered by the PP media mantras such as "unwanted pregnancy", a repugnant phrase designed to legalize child-killing. Confess openly that we were beaten and beaten with televised sex until we just gave up. Our pulpits, once bulwarks of truth, became strangely silent.
Enter a new order of Christian preacher beginning with self.
Resolved: I am going to give up my comfort zone in the face of pogroms, holocausts, blood purges and massive abortion violence! I shall risk everything to grasp Truth as the prize! I will risk rejection and persecution. I am going to try to save the next mother and child. Then I am going to ascend the pulpit and tell my congregation what I did. And to expect more of it.
Preaching must lovingly counter lies with truth. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness but rather expose them...for everything exposed by the light becomes visible... (Ephesians 5:11,13). According to Jeremiah, church folk can and do use "deceptive words" to mix paganism into the Temple worship. "Do not trust in deceptive words and say: this is the Temple of the Lord, the Temple of the Lord, the Temple of the Lord" (Jer 7:4). He is exposing the enemy's strategy of small compromises each of which sets up the next compromise. Many denominations fell into this trap and are now indistinguishable from surrounding paganism. God's enemies may openly desecrate the Temple but church worshippers do it via life-styles unchallenged by biblical preaching.
Be among the first to know: a new barbarian invasion is on. Secular historians tell you that the old invasions were caused by tribal expansion, quest for booty and assorted bloodthirsts. The true reason known in the heavenlies was that they were part of the eternal warfare to stamp out the Christian faith. Before Viking marauder Thorgestr (Agent of Thor) burned down the Irish monastery at Clonmacnoise in 844, his wife Ota pronounced pagan oracles from the high altar. At the Jacobin reign of terror following the French revolution, a prostitute was enthroned as goddess of Reason in Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris. The war against the Faith goes on forever and the weapons keep getting more sophisticated. Television is the new Trojan horse. Welcome it into your home so that later it can corrupt your entire pattern of thinking and subjugate your children. Politicize and corrupt whole school systems and place the children at the mercy of the godless.
The ancient barbarians had to travel over land and sea which took months and years. They ended up becoming Christian because they settled among Christians who had fought to keep them out of their homes, farms, towns and villages and away from the children. Today the barbarians arrive unmolested into the home in the twinkling of an eye.
If there is to be a desecration of the Temple, better a barbarian invasion by outsiders than an inside subterfuge masquerading as tolerance. Evil comes sub specie boni as an angel of light. Today's torch-wielding angels of light are found in church bureaucracies undoing the marturion and desecrating the memories of the saints who have gone on before us, causing faithful Christians to wonder if the time of biblical apostasy has come. (Matt 24:10-12, 24; 2 Tim 3:1-5)
With society living the panoply of lies which cause violence and death to others, one asks: will the preacher expose the lies or perpetuate them by his silence? Does political correctness reach into the pulpit to cancel truth? Are Christian churchgoers left to consider lies and truth as nothing but competing political arguments? Assume nothing. Many culturally conditioned Christians are not grounded in truth. When I did not preach Truth, did not thunder against lies, they consequently did not know how to think about legalized child-killing. I abandoned them to the corrupted mindset of the media.
When Jesus exposed lies He dashed them to pieces. He made enemies; they killed Him. Notice how liars tend to be bold and brassy while God's truth-sayers mumble apologetically. Is it because "Light has come into the world but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God."? (John 3:19-21)
Are there 10 steps to better preaching? No! The best way to preach it is to just preach it... after having repented of not preaching it, after owning up to the blood-guilt of silence. If you start for the wrong reason you will not last. You must first look to the next infant in the neighborhood, the next mother, the next father. They are either your siblings in Christ or they are not. Instead of preaching on "abortion", talk about them. But first, try to save them. Show up. Pray. Take authority in Jesus' Name over demons of death.
Isaiah 59:2-18 But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.
For your hands are stained with blood, your fingers with guilt. Your lips have spoken lies, and your tongue mutters wicked things. No one calls for justice; no one pleads his case with integrity. They rely on empty arguments and speak lies; they conceive trouble and give birth to evil. ...Their deeds are evil deeds, and acts of violence are in their hands.
Their feet rush into sin; they are swift to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are evil thoughts; ruin and destruction mark their ways. The way of peace they do not know; there is no justice in their paths. They have turned them into crooked roads; no one who walks in them will know peace. So justice is far from us, and righteousness does not reach us. We look for light, but all is darkness; for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows. Like the blind we grope along the wall, feeling our way like men without eyes. At midday we stumble as if it were twilight; among the strong, we are like the dead.
We all growl like bears; we moan mournfully like doves. We look for justice, but find none; for deliverance, but it is far away.
For our offenses are many in Your sight, and our sins testify against us. Our offenses are ever with us, and we acknowledge our iniquities: rebellion and treachery against the LORD, turning our backs on our God, fomenting oppression and revolt, uttering lies our hearts have conceived.
So justice is driven back, and righteousness stands at a distance; truth has stumbled in the streets, honesty cannot enter.
Truth is nowhere to be found, and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey. The LORD looked and was displeased that there was no justice.
He saw that there was no one, He was appalled that there was no one to intervene; so His own arm worked salvation for Him, and His own righteousness sustained Him.
He put on righteousness as His breastplate, and the helmet of salvation on His head; he put on the garments of vengeance and wrapped Himself in zeal as in a cloak.
According to what they have done, so will He repay wrath to His enemies and retribution to his foes; He will repay the islands their due. Isaiah 59:2-18

Do Your Part to Stop Child Murder!

Do your part to stop child murder!

How? Go to the killing places! Keep your eyes open! Make meticulous notes! Interview women and men who are there to kill their children. Interview clinic workers and abortionists! Take photographs and videotape! Research status of abortionist and killing staff and federal and state laws on child killing (much can be done online and by making phone calls!). Keep a record and report all suspicious activities when necessary, such as:
* Under age girls
* Women who are late in their pregnancies
* Abortions that are facilitated by non-licensed, non-certified staff
* Arrival of ambulances (Follow to hospital, interview aborting/injured women & their companions, get all 911 tapes)
* Abortionists leaving premises before all aborting women are released

See the following press release and be inspired to continue to battle the evil of abortion. Today counts forever.

Hold Fast....


James 1:27 describes the practice of pure Christianity for us: "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world."

We have spent many years visiting and extending our own arms in Jesus' name, to the little ones who were being led to slaughter. Beginning in March of 1996 we watched James Pendergraft and all of his henchmen and hirelings perform grisly procedures on these precious babies through all nine months of pregnancy. We saw babies sucked out of their mothers wombs, we saw boys and girls stabbed and lethally injected with a long needle through their hearts, we found babies delivered on the front lawn of his abortuary, in hotel bathrooms and in the back seats of a car. We were there when viable infants were born alive and left to die in bio-hazard bags and toilets. Although we always reported what we saw and heard and learned, the Agency for Health Care Administration and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement never made Pendergraft stop murdering innocent children. On the contrary, we saw the wicked prosper.

Pendergraft's evil empire grew in Florida from one killing place in Orlando into five death camps all over the state. The sewers and incinerators of Florida were drenched with the blood of her tiniest citizens. And then, on August 10, 2006 the Secretary of the Department of Health called a halt to the murder of infants by James Scott Pendergraft. All of Pendergraft's abortuaries were given the order to CEASE FIRE.

We rejoiced.

Pendergraft appealed the suspension of his medical license and demanded to be allowed to slaughter innocents again. Although the CEASE FIRE has been lifted at three of Pendergraft's killing places, Orlando Women's Center and EPOC remain under strict orders not to murder children.

Let us continue to petition the Savior to grant the gift of salvation to murderer James Scott Pendergraft that he might show that he is truly saved by bringing forth fruits and works of genuine repentance. (Matthew 3:8, Acts 26:20, 2 Timothy 2:25 ) Oh that we might see this serial killer come to his senses and confess all of his wicked deeds to Christ and to those in authority! Oh that we might see the day that Pendergraft seeks to make amends for all of the thousands of dismembered and born alive infants who have fallen by his hands and under his evil instructions.

Beloved, let us be assured of this; the arm of Christ is not shortened. God, in His infinite wisdom and justice, can stretch out His holy arm to make war against Pendergraft. The Lord is free in His grace to extend mercy to Pendergraft as well. Whatever God does, He does in goodness and perfect holiness. All praise to our great God and King, Christ Jesus, Who does all things well.

May Jesus strengthen our prayers and establish our faith to believe that it is possible for God to bring Pendergraft to his knees and all of his evil associates as well. For with God nothing shall be impossible. (Luke 1:37) Like the father whose own precious child had been delivered of demons (in Mark 9:24) let us cry out together with tears:
"Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief."

And indeed Moses was faithful .. but Christ, as a Son over His own house,
whose house we are
if we hold fast the confidence and rejoicing of the hope firm to the end.
Hebrews 3:5 & 6

Orlando: Baby Rowan, born-alive in toilet of abortion clinic!

And it shall come to pass at that time
That I will search ...
And punish the men
Who are settled in complacency ...
Zephaniah 1:12

Friends, On April 2, 2005 a little boy named Rowan was born at 22 weeks and 5 days gestation in Orlando. (Full term is 38-40 weeks.) This was no ordinary pre-mature delivery. It was a labor-and-delivery ABORTION. A BORN-ALIVE ABORTION. Baby Rowan was delivered into the toilet at EPOC abortion clinic and as happens so often with labor-and-delivery abortions, this precious little boy was moving ... Rowan was ALIVE. When his shocked mother Angele noticed that her son had survived the abortion, she screamed and Baby Rowan startled.
It is a COMMON, ROUTINE, WEEKLY occurance for babies to be born alive at EPOC and sister abortuary Orlando Women's Center, as well as the other abortuaries around the state that are owned by James Pendergraft.

Pendergraft's business is death. (See photo of Little Mary, murdered at 21 weeks gestation in November of 1999 at Orlando Women's Center) The bulk of Pendergraft's income is a result of pre-meditated murder for hire for babies through all nine months of pregnancy. Second and third trimester labor-and-delivery killings are what they DO.

EPOC clinic worker Vilene answered Angele's cry for help and came into the bathroom. She looked into the toilet. Although Vilene clearly saw that Rowan was alive, she refused to call for paramedics. She simply told Angele "I'll take care of it." Horrified, Angele insisted that she call 911 so they could get her son to the hospital. Vilene didn't answer. She walked out of the room and left Angele alone with the perishing baby. Angele used her cell phone and called her friend who was waiting for herat a local hotel. Angele desperately wanted an ambulance with paramedics to rescue and save her poor infant by providing him with emergency medical care and transporting him to neo-natal intensive care before it was too late. Angele wanted Rowan to live.
After calling her friend, Angele kneeled down in the bathroom and held her dying son in her hands. She put one hand under his back and neck andwith the other she warmed his belly. Speaking gently to Rowan she tried to comfort him, hoping and praying for the paramedics to hurry to save her son. Rowan's mouth remained tightly closed. He never drew a breath. Anxiously awaiting the paramedics and trying to remain calm in spite of her tremendous panic, Angele kept Rowan's face above the water becauses he did not want her son to gulp and choke on any of the toilet water. When the placenta no longer provided a flow of blood, the umbilical cord stopped pulsing. With nature's provision of precious life and oxygen to the extremely premature boy gone, Rowan stopped moving. His mouth grew soft and his lips parted slightly. With a sense of terrible grief and an anguish too deep for words, Angele sobbed. Her boy was dead.

Angele found a pair of sheers under the cabinet below the sink and cut the umbilical cord herself. She held her son in her arms and wept at what she had done to him. Angele knew that she had murdered her son. She knew that she was responsible. But Angele couldn't understand why the clinic workers wouldn't help Rowan when he was born alive. She couldn't understand why no one had answered the 911 call for help for her little boy. Although paramedics were eventually dispatched to EPOC abortuary, the incident report from Orlando Police Department shows that it was for "non-emergency assistance". NOT A SINGLE EMT, PARAMEDIC OR POLICE OFFICER went to Baby Rowan's aid. No one went into the bathroom to provide medical care for the tiny baby. The helpless infant was NEVER examined by a paramedic. WHY DID THESE PUBLIC SERVANTS FAIL to DO THEIR DUTY?

We demand to know the reason WHY the rescue squad from Orlando Fire Department refused to RESCUE Baby Rowan!

Here are excerpts from the frantic 911 calls for you to read for yourself.
PLEASE READ through the following transcripts and go to the websites I have listed below. I believe that there should be justice for Baby Rowan and the 10,000 of infants like him who are butchered by abortion in greater Orlando every year.
It is a disgrace that these helpless babies perish in the shadow of a thousand steeples. These infants should not be forgotten. Their blood cries out to God for justice.

Tears are not enough.

Lift up your voice!

Maggie's Story:

A Family Respecting Life

As she reached her third trimester, Teri was confined to bed rest by her obstetrician. She had been diagnosed with pre-eclampsia, a progressive life threatening condition for the mother and, through dependency, the child. The doctor was challenged to thread the proverbial needle. She had to buy as much developmental time in the womb for Maggie before Teri's condition deteriorated into convulsions and systems failure that would kill both patients.
At 28 weeks gestation for Maggie, Teri's blood and urine indicators mandated an emergency Caesarean section in order to save their lives.
While Teri sloughed off 18 lbs. of water during the next 24 hours, Maggie was in respiratory distress due to her underdeveloped lungs. Meanwhile, the hospital counselor assigned to the family, outlined myriad other possible complications facing a preemie of Maggie's gestational age to an overwhelmed first-time dad. At the very least, Maggie would spend the remaining two and a half months, until her projected "due date," in the neonatal intensive care unit.

Helpless, defenseless offspring have always required nurturing. However, measures once considered extraordinary have become ordinary. Advances in knowledge have helped us to fine tune that nurturing and push back the age of "viability."

The proof is in the pudding. Maggie has, in fact, lived. She is 15 years old as this is written - a wonderful human being!

The Way of Death

In several publications (including Pendergraft's PR person stated: "I strongly maintain that not only is [Pendergraft] not a danger to women, he is their only salvation ...."
As we all know salvation is of the Lord, by the Lord and through the Lord. (Psa 37:39 Psa 68:20 Lam 3:26 Jon 2:9 Psa 27:1) The salvation that comes through Jesus Christ is unto LIFE .... and LIFE ETERNAL! This same salvation is "According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue ..." 2Pe 1:3
In John 12:50 the Master assures us " ....that His commandment is life everlasting". John 8:12 "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."

Woe unto those who resist the command of God to repent and continue to murder without remorse or contrition for Jesus declares the judgment of the wicked and their end, saying;
"And ... they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life;
and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation."
John 5:29 Pendergraft feels untouchable. He has "enjoyed" power over life and death for all of these years. He flatters himself that he is a savior, although he defies the Law of God and takes bribes to slay the innocent. As a doctor the pre-born infant inside the mothers are also his patients! How perverse is Pendergraft's way!
It is the way of death. There is a way which seemeth right unto a man,
but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Proverbs 14:12 & Proverbs 16:25

May God be merciful to Pendergraft and grant unto Him the conviction of sin and the gift of repentance unto LIFE.
Act 11:18

Pendergraft prepares to commit abortions despite order

Dear Friends,
In spite of an Emergency Suspension Order (ESO issued by the Florida Department of Health on August 10, 2006 abortionist and abortuary owner James Scott Pendergraft prepares to commit abortions at Orlando Women's Center. According to the ESO Pendergraft's medical license number 59702 was suspended due to his demonstration of "flagrant disregard for the laws of the State of Florida and willingness to endanger the lives and health of pregnant patients".

Pendergraft was found in violation of the following laws:
1) Dr Pendergraft endangered two female patients by performing third trimester abortions outside a hospital setting and without concurring certification from a second physician.
2) "knowing that he did not possess a current, valid DEA number he (Pendergraft) nonetheless prescribed, ordered or administered controlled substances to patient R.W."
3) "Dr Pendergraft failed to keep adequate medical records that justified the course of treatment (abortion in the third trimester) for patient R.W."
4) "Dr Pendergraft fell below the standrd of care when he inaccurately determined the fetus size and gestational age, and performed a third trimester abortion for patient T.R."

I called Pendergraft's abortuary Orlando Women's Center this morning at 10:30am and spoke with "Kara" (name changed). Kara offered me an opportunity to see the doctor for an ultrasound tomorrow, Tuesday, August 23, sometime in the morning. The cost would be $150. I was instructed to call back tomorrow morning after 9am to see what time the doctor was to arrive so that I could schedule the ultrasound.

I called again at 11am. Kara gave me an abortion appointment for Monday, August 28th at 9am. (Kara also offered me abortion appointments for all the other days of the week next week; Tuesday at 12:45, Wednesday at 9am, Thursday at 12:45, Friday at 9am, Saturday at 7am and Sunday at 9am.)

At 12 weeks gestation Kara told me that the fee was $440. If I was found to be RH negative I would be charged an additional $75 charge for a Rhogam injection after the abortion. I was offered IV twilight sedation or local anesthetic (injected into my cervix to numb it). I was told that I had to make the payment with cash, credit card or money order. No debit cards or checks are accepted. I was told that I had to bring my ID. I was instructed not to eat or drink for four hours before my appointment. Then the clinic worker Kara said that I "could eat lightly, coffee and toast were fine, but no greasy foods."

I reported the fact that Orlando Women's Center was scheduling abortion appointments to the local branch of the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) in Orlando. The AHCA field office manager in Orlando, Joel Libby, told me that Orlando Women's Center is still under a moratorium and is not allowed to offer abortions. Mr. Libby advised me to call in a complaint to the hotline in Tallahassee (888.419.3456) and give them detailed information regarding my abortion appointment. I called and filed a comprehensive complaint. I spoke with Mr Libby again after I called the AHCA hotline. Mr Libby said they will investigate "in the near future".

Please make plans to minister at Orlando Women's Center killing place again next week. If any of you has a desire to reach out to women this week, they will be open for business every day. It is reasonable to assume that many of the women who will go for appointments and walk-in for pregnancy tests at Orlando Women's Center will be seeking information on how to arrange to kill their babies.

For Life & Eternity,

Mill Closure Update

Dear Friends,
I wanted to let you know that I have received a report that eye witnesses saw abortionist Randall Whitney arrive at Ocala Women's Center (Pendergraft's abortuary there) on Saturday and seven women aborted. So, abortions are still being committed at Pendergraft's abortuaries. This is of concern to us as we were under the impression that the abortions were NOT to be continued while Pendergraft was being investigated.
If they are still being committed at Ocala then I would assume they are also being committed at Ft Lauderdale and Tampa as well.
We are very dissappointed. Please pray ...

Abortionist and abortion clinic owner James Scott Pendergraft is under investigation. His killing places in Florida are closed and his license to practice medicine is suspended.
I have been counseling aborting women outside Pendergraft's Orlando Women's Center abortion clinic ever since it opened over 10 years ago. So many children have died at his hands and the hands of the abortionists who work for him. Randall Whitney, Harvey Roth and Emil Felski among them. Baby Rowan was delivered alive into the toilet of Pendergraft's EPOC clinic in April of 2005. Carol Howard left during her abortion procedure at Orlando Women's Center and delivered a little girl at a local hospital around Thanksgiving five years ago.
I have been reporting Pendergraft's illegal third trimester abortions for a decade.
This is truly wonderful news.
I hope to learn more in the days to come.

Central Florida News 13,
Florida Abortion Doctor Suspended

The state of Florida has issued an emergency suspension against Dr. James Pendergraft for allegedly performing a third-trimester abortion and illegally administered drugs.
Third trimester abortions are illegal in the state of Florida outside of a hospital.
Pendergraft refutes all of the allegations and vows to clear his name, but for now, his future as an abortion doctor is in limbo. Pendergraft's five Florida abortion clinics can no longer take new clients, nor can they perform new procedures.

Health officials said in July of 2005, Pendergraft performed an abortion on a woman seven months along in her pregnancy after hospital doctors refused.
Authorities said this isn’t the first time Pendergraft has been in trouble. In 2001, a Marion County jury convicted Pendergraft of conspiracy, mail fraud and extortion.
Pendergraft served seven months in federal prison before a U.S. circuit court of appeals overturned his conviction.
"The termination I performed was not only medically necessary; it most likely prevented her from extremely difficult and potentially life threatening surgery," Pendergraft said in a statement.
A spokesperson for Pendergraft said they expect to have these restrictions overturned and plan to file an emergency appeal.
The emergency suspension order prevents Pendergraft from practicing in Florida until the State Board of Medicine takes final action.

"I have no heart.."

But God shows His anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people
who push the truth away from themselves.
For the truth about God is known to them instinctively.
God has put this knowledge in their hearts ...
So they have no excuse whatsoever ...
So God let them go ahead and do whatever shameful things their hearts desired.
As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other's bodies.
Instead of believing what they knew was the truth about God,
they deliberately chose to believe lies.
So they worshiped the things God made
(they worshiped themselves),
but not the Creator Himself, who is to be praised forever.
Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin ... murder ...
They are fully aware of God's death penalty for those who do such things,
yet they go right ahead and do them anyway.
Romans 2: 18, 19,24,25, 32

Orlando Women's Center killing place
Saturday, July 1, 2006 J

Jesse reports: Had a REAL tough morning at the death camp today. So many people came to kill their babies that they couldn't all fit inside the waiting room. Standing room only. The waiting room was jammed packed so the rest spilled outside. There were about 6-8 women and men sitting on the porch the entire morning. One of the clinic workers made an announcement that the abortionist coming was going to be late so everyone should expect to be there 6 or 8 hours to kill their little ones (instead of the usual 4-6 hours) They announced that the women who wanted to murder their babies could reschedule the extermination of their sons and daughters if they wanted. Did this deter any of the mothers and fathers who were there to dismember their innocent, defenseless infants? Not even the littlest bit. So hell-bent on committing murder, that not one single mom would even consider leaving and taking more time to rethink what they were paying the killer to do to their babies. We plead with all of these pregnant moms and dads all morning. Saying everything we could possibly think of. No reaction. Some mornings when I go to the killing place, I feel a bit more "bad cop" (Law) than "good cop" (Grace)....and you will hear me speak truth harder. However, some mornings (like today) it is the opposite. This morning ....I was gentle. I was full of mercy and compassion. My words today were so full of mercy and compassion and hope that I hear myself sounding almost like a humanist. I made it all about the moms and the help we had to offer. I let them know that I understood that this was hard. I poured myself out ... gave them everything that was in my heart. The last thing I expected was for some tough guy to get in my face threatening to beat me up.....but sure enough....there he was. Mr Man. I think compassion brings out the worst in the uncompassionate. Mercy brings out the worst in the merciless. I remember, in the pride and violence of my ignorance and youth, I used to joke about how one day I'd like to defend myself against somebody threatening to beat me up....just to show they can't push me around. That's all gone now. The last thing I want is to get in a fight. When the guy was threatening me today I simply said, "It is obvious that you sir could completely whoop my let's just agree to that and not have any violence.....and PLEASE don't commit a violent murder against your unborn child." Jesus said "Blessed are the peacemakers". It's so weird though, because in this wicked world, the very act of trying to make "peace" seems to encite more violence. I guess we shouldn't be so suprised.

Look what they did to the One who IS the Prince of Peace.
They beat Him and mocked Him and nailed Him to a Cross.

I talked at length with an interesting woman named Linda who brought her "kinda adopted" daughter to have an abortion. Linda said she was completely against the murder of this baby. She said she had begged her surrogate daughter to not do it. Linda even offered to adopt the child. So did her son. She told me all the things she said to the girl (some of it was really good stuff that I'll use to minister on the sidewalks). But the girl was dead set on doing it. This girl even told her surrogate mom words that made me shutter.

She told Linda, "I don't have a heart.....I know I don't because
I don't even feel bad about what I'm going to do".

WOW! What scary words from a young woman....the wicked sure are honest.

I urged Linda to leave her daughter not be part of this diabolical act. And guess what? Linda did leave! She went inside and told her daughter that she didn't want any part in the slaughter of that innocent child and she wasn't going to stay there any longer. Linda told me that two other women inside the killing place were bawling their eyes out.

--- Another Orlando Rapist Gets Away with Murder ---

I talked with a guy named Todd who brought his underage "girlfriend", Jenny, to kill the baby he had impregnated her with. Todd said:
"If Jenny doesn't have this abortion, her parents will find out about us!
They could have me charged with statutory rape."

I told Todd: "Hey, man, it's time to be a man and do what is right". When Todd's phone rang he simply cut me off. Would you like to know how Todd's underage girlfriend got to have a surgical abortion without her parents being notified?? Per instruction of the abortuary, to bypass informing her parents about being raped by an older man,

Jenny simply went to the Orange County Courthouse!

As we have seen in similar cases here in Orlando, the judge gave Jenny a judicial waiver so that she didn't have to notify her parents that an older guy has been having sex with her and had made her pregnant. The Orange County Court order helped a man get away with rape (and continue to rape) a teenage girl and then execute the child who was the evidence of Todd's crime.

This is the system. This is Florida. This is Orlando. This is America.

Every now and then I get a reminder of how wicked the world really was one of those days. This all happened in just two hours, from 6:30-8:30 AM.

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness,
has shined in our hearts,
to give the light of the knowlege of the glory of God
in the face of Jesus Christ.
I Corinthians 5:6Come quickly,

Lord Jesus! ~ Jesse
Marian reports:

The past three days (as we do each time we go to the sidewalk outside the killing place) we offered different alternatives to abortion. We warned the women and men of the many risks involved during and after an abortion. The only woman who took a brochure from us today (which is full of tremendous information) threw it back down on the ground and yelled expletives at us. We offered financial assistance, wonderful information about adoption (which is not only free but can provide them with financial help!) , medical assistance, etc.
One man threatened Jesse with harm. Jesse quietly replied,

"I know you can whip me, but how can we help you?"

Once we have taken the time to offer everything in the way of help (the Good Samaritan model) we begin to warn the men and women. We remind them of what they already instinctively know. We speak to their God-given conscience, which tells them right from wrong. We warn them that God is Holy and Just and is He is angry with our sin. We warned the murdering mothers and fathers (and clinic workers) of that great and terrible Day of the Lord when they would have to face Him and give an account of all of their wicked deeds -- but to no avail. Many laughed at us when we shared the gospel of repentance and faith with them.
It is horrifying to think of them when they stand before the Lord. There will be no smiles or laughter on the day they have to face the Righteous and Holy God.

My heart was broken today to see these heartless individuals laughing at the sight of the large poster of a 10 week old aborted baby. The photo clearly shows a baby whose body had been ripped to pieces during the suction abortion procedure that is so common during the first trimester. It was extremely discouraging and troublesome.

As I think of the image of the individuals laughing at the dead baby, I think of Satan laughing as he sees God hurl each of these moms and dads into the Lake of Fire. Today, as we do many other days, we think of the door to the abortion mill as a door to hell itself. Only a few of us Christians were on the outside trying to keep these people from falling in through the gates of hell. It reminds me of the verse in the Book of Matthew, Chapter 7:13,14

“Enter by the narrow gate;
for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction,
and there are many who go in by it.
Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life,
and there are few who find it. "

Now more than ever before, I realize why our Lord was moved with compassion at the lost -- there are so many.

Our Pastor compared the spiritually lost multitudes to a ship wreck at sea where hundreds are floundering in the waters while a couple of individuals on the beach try to figure out where to start saving those who are floundering in the ocean.
One or two may be spared from drowning.....

I suspect there were at least 60 babies murdered at The Orlando Women's Center Killing Mill in just the past three days. I wonder ...

Where are the pastors of Orlando?
at a meeting on Global Warming?
