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.
