Making History in Kissimmee! Halt the opening of Planned Parenthood!

There are those times when you know that you've experienced something great, something spectacular and something that was touched by the hand of God Almighty.

Those moments that make history, and will be remembered for a lifetime.


This is what I experienced last night at the Commissioner's meeting at the Kissimmee City Hall. The hearing room was completely packed out with the lobby and hallway filled with concerned citizens waiting to express their outrage, sadness, dismay, and disheartenment over the proposed opening of a mega-Planned Parenthood.


One by one for over two hours city commissioners listened to people share their hearts with passion, tears, concern and fear for their community if this Planned Parenthood does indeed gain access to Kissimmee.

Winnie Bell was the first person to address
the commissioner s& with a passionate plea.

People from all walks of life, nationalities, color, age, occupations; all with the same heartfelt plea to the commissioners; to do what they could, no matter how small to stop this Planned Parenthood from coming to their community and polluting their town with the blood of innocent little baby boys and girls.

Pastors, doctors, many different ministries, businesses, lawyers all compassionate for the sanctity of Life and speaking on behalf of the unborn child, the plight of abortion, and the negative impact including the violence which surrounds abortion, and the effect this proposed opening would have on their community.
Dr. Litell, an incredible pro-life physician,
 led a prayer vigil prior to the meeting.

The mayor was quite adamant throughout the beginning of the meeting stating that there was nothing that they could do, using the word can't alot!   But halfway through, he finally said, "Well, there is one thing we can do and that is contact our state legislators!"

This after pastors challenged the commissioners that this is their Esther moment, "For such a time as this!"  Business men encouraged them to take the moral high ground and medical professionals shared how they will be the ones that will be left taking care of the women after they receive botched abortions.
Pastor Kevin Wilhoit from Grace Community
Church!
 

Women shared their pain from past abortions and the devestating lasting effects and how they do not want young women in their community to experience what they have experienced.

Dr. Litell who is helping to lead the way in this battle, stood and gave an absolutely passionate speech , creating a long and powerful round of applause that went on and on.



A mother went forward with her Down Syndrome son sharing how she was encouraged strongly to abort her child, but she refused.  She made the point that what we need more in this country are more people like her loving son, not less!  It was so powerful and so beautiful!


I know that this is a mountain we are climbing in trying to stop Planned Parenthood from moving into Kissimmee, but I also know that with God all things are possible!  I saw that Tuesday evening, with only a couple days notice of the Commissioner's meeting, close to 300 warriors showed up armed with the word of God, prayer, HIS boldness to speak and stand against evil and a oneness that can only come from a belief in Jesus Christ the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

Yes, last night, God was high and lifted up; those of us that sat in on the hearing and in the hallway, will never forget how God moved mightily through HIS people speaking for Life and against such an injustice that is permeated toward unborn human beings.


Please join us in prayer and fasting pleading with the Lord to intervene on behalf of the little baby boys and girls that will lose their precious lives if this place of death is allowed to open!  The God that parted the Red Sea, can part this sea......let's pray and walk up this mountain doing what we can to keep Kissimmee free from the shedding of innocent blood!

To God be the Glory!

I'm a Christian, and I've really prayed about this.......

There she stood in the short distance with her hoodie covering part of her face and her head down.

I could see her protruding stomach, knowing that she was well along in her pregnancy.

You see, it was later term abortion day at the awhc abortuary, and she wasn't there for a check-up, she was there to pay someone to end the life of the child developing in her womb.

I called over to her to please come down and talk with me;  I was actually surprised when she looked up and immediately headed toward me.

She was tall, pretty and had a beautiful smile that I could see was forced.

I asked her if she was here for an abortion, and she quickly said yes.  I asked her why she felt compelled to have an abortion and she said, "I was attacked, I can't keep this baby."  I told her that I understood her pain, and I didn't want to make light of the horrible situation, but I also let her know that having an abortion would only add more pain on top of the pain she was experiencing now.

I shared with her the story of Rebecca Keisling, a beautiful woman who was conceived in rape and now speaks out for the rights of others conceived in rape.  I also shared how we should never blame the innocent child for the sins of the father.

I asked her how old her baby was and she said around 4 months.  I then inquired if she had an ultrasound to see her baby and she said yes and that when she had the ultrasound it revealed the baby was missing an arm and that she had to have an abortion.  I told her that there were people that would love to adopt her baby know matter what.

She then shared with me the normal mantra we hear so often, "I'm a Christian, and I've really prayed about this and sought God on this, and I now know that HE understands."

After hearing those words, and feeling like I was in somewhat of a state of shock, I contained myself, and thought, "If she is going to talk about praying to God about killing this child, then I would speak to her with the word of God."

I looked at her and said, "If you are a Christian, you know what God says about killing right?  She put her head down and said yes.  I then said, "Thou shalt not kill."  I then showed her pictures of what her baby looked like, letting her know that her baby was completely developed with a beating heart, and his/her own blood type, organs, hair color, eye color.  And that know matter how this baby was conceived, and even if this baby was missing an arm, Jesus still loves that baby.

She then looked up at me with tears running down her cheeks and said, I know what you are saying, and you wouldn't believe the shirt I'm wearing underneath this hoodie.  She then proceeded to lift her hoodie up to show me her t-shirt; it was a Christian t-shirt with with Jesus written boldly across the front!  She said to me, "can you believe this?"  I really was so sad at this point, not only because of the Jesus t-shirt, but when she lifted her hoodie, I could really see even more her pregnant tummy; the baby in her womb was so big already!  I wanted to burst out crying at this point, so I just pleaded with her to do what God would want her to do, and that would be to trust Him with this child and the situation, not to kill her baby.

At this point, Melvin, the security guard came up to us and told the abortion bound mommy that they were calling her to come in.  She looked at me with tears still coming down her cheeks and didn't leave my side.  I told her I could take her right down the street to a wonderful pregnancy center where they could help her and get her everything she needed including some really good counseling.

Again, Melvin approached us alerting her that they were ready for her.  She looked at me, I pleaded again, letting her know I cared, that this, again, would bring more pain to her on top of the pain she is already experiencing.  Tears were falling on both of our faces now, but she was walking backward up the driveway, not taking her eyes off of mine, like a magnet drawn to this place of death.  I cried out to her to come back; she spoke loudly letting me know she hadn't made up her mind, whereas before she was so sure about getting the abortion.

I stayed alot longer that day, but by the time I had to leave, she was still inside.  I have continued to pray that maybe, just maybe she, at the last minute had the strength to let this little baby live.  I'll never know, unless she calls or I see her again.  All I can do now is pray that she really comes to know the true ways of the Savior, that she repents and gives her heart completely to Him, for He is the only truth in this lost and dying world.

Words can not express how I felt driving home that day, emptiness, sadness, but at the same time knowing that it is in Him that I have to put my full trust, for He is the one that opens eyes and sets the captive free.  I am only His messenger, sharing His word, the rest is in His hands, and in that I found peace.

All was not well this New Years Eve!

It was New Years Eve and all was not well.
AWHC abortuary, New Years Eve.

It was dark, dreary, chilly and the parking lot was packed.

The faces were not filled with joy anticipating the New Year; just dread, anger, sorrow and despair.

This is when I noticed the young man, he looked lost, saddened and perplexed;  I called out to him and asked if I could help.  I just wanted him to know there was help.

He walked toward me and I recognized that face;  the face of guilt, shame, condemnation, confusion, but a determination to convince one self that what they are doing is right.

I introduced myself and asked how I could help him; he said with a downtrodden face, "There is nothing you can do, I've already tried."

I said, "there is always hope, always."

He went on to inform me that he was a Christian, that his daddy was even a pastor, and he couldn't believe he was here in this mess.

The mess he was referring to was the fact that he was at the local abortuary and his girlfriend who was pregnant, was inside, waiting to abort their baby!


I asked him how old his baby was and he told me he thought around 12 or 13 weeks, I let him know that his baby was fully formed with fingers, toes, and his or her own fingerprints; and that his little baby was precious to Jesus.

"I know, I know, but......"  The buts that we hear so often.  

I reminded him of the scripture, "Rescue those unjustly sentenced to death, hold back those staggering to the slaughter (Proverbs 24:11)," and "Speak up for those who have no voice (Proverbs 31:8)."  I told him, you must try one more time, this is what God would have you to do!  This is a matter of life and death, and just as Harriet Tubman risked her life in the middle of winter to rescue slaves, you must try to rescue your baby!

He took a brochure with information of all the help available and with convicted eyes said, "Yes, I will go back in and try to get her out, I don't think she will, but I will try."

And he headed back into that dark place of death, where so many innocent lives have been tragically lost.  I put out the call for prayer warriors to pray, so the prayers began.

Awhile later, he came out and told me it was too late, there were tears in his eyes;  I believe the reality of this nightmare really hit him.  Earlier while talking, before going inside the mill, he had told me that a couple days prior, he had gone to church and felt that God was telling him not to have the abortion, he said he was sure that God spoke to his heart about this.  He shared this with his girlfriend, but she insisted on the abortion.

He then looked at me and said, "and here you are, talking to me, and about God."  I said, "this can be the day that you get right back with God, and do it HIS way, you know what I'm talking about."

Now, here he was, getting ready to be the father of a dead baby, one of God's precious children.


Amber with Abbie & Josh reaching  out
 to abortion bound men &women
.
My friend Amber showed up at this point with her two precious children and we continued to reach out to the New Years Eve abortion bound men and women while we prayed for a miracle.

We waited and waited and then we saw the young man drive his car to the back;  we knew that meant the abortion was over and she would be coming out.

We went to the back and sure enough his drugged up barren girlfriend was coming out, a broken woman, with a broken baby.

After getting inside the vehicle, the car drove toward us and stopped, he rolled the window down and I looked at his tear stained eyes;  true brokeness was over this man and I said, "please, right away, try to get her in post abortion counseling (she was to out of it to understand), and then I looked at him and said, "and you are going to need post abortion counseling."  I showed him where he could go to a men's post abortion group.  With tears streaming down his face, he said he would.  I gave him my number and told him to call, and I pray he will.

Yes, for this couple, New Years Eve will never be the same, it will always be a reminder of the day their baby was killed.  But I pray, that through this horror, that this young man will return to the Father, the creator of this universe, to leave the ways of the world and run back to HIM with reckless abandon.  

This, oh God is what I pray, January 1, 2014.

Is Pendergraft Above the Law?

For over 40 years we have been spoon fed the mantra of safe and legal abortions, that by some strange notion if abortion remains available with no criminal consequences, women will be safe.

What nonsense and what a lie that has permeated throughout our society for far too long. Decriminalizing abortion in 1973 never made the world a safer place for women, instead what has happened is the abortion industry has become a breeding ground for sexual predators, rapists, sex traffickers, pimps, incest and more.  Not only that, women continue to be maimed, butchered and killed by abortionists, but yet the mantra of "safe and legal abortions" continues.

The absolute hypocrisy is truly coming forth as those that have fought so hard to spout off their absolute concern for women are the very ones who are fighting tooth and nail to prevent abortion centers to be regulated the same as a surgi center.  Not only that, these same advocates of abortion who have waved coat hangars in our faces for 40 years yelling, "never again" are the same ones ranting how unconstitutional it is to force an abortionist to have hospital privileges.  Really?  You care so much about women, but you don't care if the abortionist has hospital privileges and you don't want the very place where abortions are performed to be regulated the same as other medical centers?  I do believe your true colors show you really don't care about women at all.

On a local level here, right in the heart of Mickey Mouse land, family vacations and fun in Central Florida, we have an abortionist that has successfully been able to shove his fist in the face of the law for years.  This abortionist has had his medical license revoked, not once, twice, three or four times, but yes, five times and not only that, it is suspended indefinitely!  Now, you would think that he would be shut down, but oh no, he is up and running his shady abortion business without consequence to any of his actions.

Pendergraft with his attorneys
at the Carol Howard hearings.
James Pendergraft, the man who was sued over $36 million dollars for a botched abortion is this abortionist! His Orlando Women's Center was raided by the Sheriff's Department and all assets were confiscated, but one month later Pendergraft brazenly borrowed furniture and office equipment and opened back up again.  He still has this huge lawsuit hanging over him and no medical license, but he remains open!

His main abortionist Randall Whitney has two pending lawsuits for perforating the uteruses of two women and he also assaulted a woman which led to his arrest and a judgement against him with other women accusing him of assaulting them as well; and he continues on as well into his 80's!

Just a few weeks ago, while out ministering at Pendergraft's EPOC abortion mill, we witnessed something that is one of the ugly faces of abortion;  a young woman walking continually in the parking lot wearing her pajamas and covered with a blanket.  She was in the second day of her late term abortion (she said she was 25 weeks along, one week past the legal limit in Florida) and was laboring, waiting for her baby who was said to have fetal abnormalities to be born dead.  The abortion began at Pendergraft's sister mill, Orlando Women's Center with sidewalk counselor & evangelist John Barros reaching out to her with the love of Christ and help the day before.  So here she was, the second day waiting, just waiting, walking, laboring.

The abortionist, the infamous Randall Whiteney, who came to EPOC for awhile this particular day, stayed a little bit, then left all the women there with no attending physician (I actually wouldn't consider him a physician by the way), to go kill more babies
Abortionist Whitneys way of greeting us!
over at Orlando Women's Center.  He goes back and forth from each mill like a ping pong ball!

So I go back to the "safe and legal" abortions;  how can anyone call this safe?  Why has Pendergraft been allowed to remain open with NO medical license?  His slick and seedy dodging of the $36 million dollar lawsuit by trickery is commonly used and shared by hot shot drug dealers and other abortionists; this camaraderie in the cleverness and scheming of hiding money in and through different corporations, makes it easy for more botched abortions to occur at his back alley mill.

No, abortion is not safe, and will never be safe; it is not healthcare!  I for one, along with others are making it a point to expose what  Pendergraft is allowed to get away with here in the sunshine state.  We will not remain silent and we will work hard to warn women and others of Pendergraft's history.
 We want answers from officials at the Florida Medical Board and the Department of Health on why they allow the seedy and dangerous practices of Pendergraft and Whitney to continue on their merry way botching abortions, performing late term abortions, and of course mercilessly butchering innocent little baby boys and girls.  Our question is, "Is Pendergraft above the law?"  We will raise our voices, and we won't be silent!

Hiding the Secret of Abortion

Here is Felski at P.P.intimidating
 prolifers with his gun!
Well, once again abortionist Emil Felski has exerted his power and used his intimidation practices to try to scare Christian's away from his private OB/GYN practice.  You see Mr. Felski kills babies through abortion at Planned Parenthood of Orlando, delivers babies at Florida Hospital and  has an OB/Gyn practice where he also kills babies.   But, he doesn't let his OB patients know about his abortion bound patients, oh no, he keeps them totally separate!  So when Christian's come out and stand in front of his private practice to expose the evil deeds of abortion, Mr. Felski gets very upset because he doesn't want his hidden secret to come out;  he has lost his ob patients after they find out that he is an abortionist.

So was the case yesterday when  two close friends of mine and true warriors for Christ went out to stand in front of Felski's office proclaiming the truth of the gospel and informing the public that Mr. Felski is an abortionist.

Shortly after they arrived, they noticed Felski driving toward them on Hwy 436 which is a very busy road. He didn't pull into the driveway though, he just stopped his car on this highway, got out taking pictures of my friends, Amber and Allura, and then proceeded to pick up one of the signs that said "Repent Emil Felski," folded in half and put it in the car with him, (view video here), then driving into the medical complex. 

Not only did Felski take their "property" but he also endangered Amber & Allura's lives, along with all the others drivers on Hwy 436.  This is when I received a call from Allura, and after talking it over and seeking counsel, they decided to call 911, here is what Allura had to say:

"We called 911 to report that he had taken my property, and had also caused an obstruction to traffic by leaving his car unattended on the Hwy, (He only had to drive a few feet further to pull into the driveway of the medical plaza, and he wouldn't have caused any danger to us or the drivers on Hwy 436).

Two unmarked police cars arrived and the officers immediately told us that my sign was illegally leaning against a Department of Transportation sign.  We said we hadn't realized that and wouldn't do it again  The older officer then folded his arms over his chest as he said we couldn't "harass or prevent people from coming in or going out" of this medical facility.  He added that while taking pictures of people isn't illegal, "maybe these particular people didn't want their pictures taken and it could be considerd a form of harassment."  The only person we took a picture of was Felski, but I assured the officer that we run all these questions and situations by our attorneys to make sure we aren't breaking any laws.

The officers left to talk to Felsk, then came back with my sign, (view video here) with the folds permanently creased in it.  The younger officer instructed us to not lean our signs against DOT poles, and it was obvious that they thought they were done now and everything was fine!  When Amber mentioned the danger Felski had put us and others in by leaving his car in the street, we were assured that "he has been counselled about that" so it wouldn't be a problem anymore.  I said we wanted to press charges, and laid out the reasons why.  The older officer, with a smirk, said, "okay!" And they turned around and walked to the car.


The younger one brought the report back for me to fill out, and he seemed nicer and more considerate, but the older one was condescending and sarcastic, very authoritative.  He treated us
Amber filling out the report
both as if we were ignorant children who could be pushed around and intimidated.  In fact, he seemed to be very biased against us and our rights.  We wonder if there could be some kind of ties between him and the abortionist.  But God gave both Amber and me a holy boldness to stand up to these bullies....including Felski....and to not back down out of fear!  When God calls us to be a voice for the voiceless, He gives us the grace and strength to go forth in His mighty name!  


"The Lord proclaims:  Do what is just and right;  rescue the oppressed from the power of the oppressor.  Don't exploit or mistreat the refugee, the orphan, and the widow.  Don't spill the blood of the innocent."  Jeremiah 22:3


Molly, Allura & others sharing the truth at Felski's
at one of the Awareness Campaigns there!
Surely, this obstetrician's patients have a right to know that the blood of innocent aborted babies is spilt  in the same rooms where they themselves are examined as they wait excitedly for the birth of their little one.  Felski is a wicked oppressor who secretly whisks abortion-bound moms in and out of his medical office before and after regular business hours so he can pay for a beautiful home in a gated community as well as a pretty snazzy little car.  He is proud of his reputation as an honored OB doctor at Florida Hospital, owned by the Seventh Day Adventists, so he doesn't want word getting out publicly that he kills babies in his medical office or at Planned Parenthood.  He wants to keep his unfruitful deeds in the dark, but as Christians we are called to expose them and bring them into the light.  That is why we stand in front of his office on 436 with signs that call him to repentance and proclaim that "Dr. Emil Felski Kills Babies Here!"  Allura  


Frank with the boys at an Awareness
Campaign at Florida Hospital!
Yes, the Bible tells us "to have nothing to do with the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but to rather expose them," Ephesians 5:11, and this is what we must do.  We must also pray, so please pray for Emil Felski, that he will repent of the shedding of innocent blood, leave the business of killing little baby boys and girls and bow his knees to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

Their Ashes Will Not Be Forgotten


Today the documentary "After Tiller" made it's debut for all the world to see into the lives of the four self-proclaimed late term abortionists still practicing this absolute barbaric and gruesome procedure in America.


I have to say that when I was reminded of this being the opening day of the documentary, my mind went back to the years I stood in front of  Tiller's late term abortuary.

I couldn't help but think of all the faithful Christian's over the years that stood in the middle of winter in below zero weather or the blazing hot summer's and never ending blowing wind, praying, crying and pleading with the women going into Tiller's infamous late term abortion facility, the years it was open.

I began to think of the ten years of going out to Tiller's at 6:00am on Tuesday mornings, week after week, year after year to be there for all the women  that would come from around the country and abroad to have their late term abortions.  It's hard to write this, as I think of the women full term having a hard time getting out of their car. Their child fully formed, sometimes ready to be born.

But what I remember the most was the smoke stack, the thick smoke that would billow out, and the ashes of the children would fall all around us, sometimes falling like snow, covering our windshields, and sometimes pieces of the baby would fall on our feet. You see, George Tiller had an adult size crematorium and all those babies would be thrown into that incinerator and their ashes would flow across Wichita, the smell of human flesh burning was everywhere around us.

My friend Karen and I would walk back and forth across the driveway reading the word when women weren't coming in.  The sword of the spirit would keep us focused on Christ amidst the absolute evil that surrounded us.  Another friend of mine, Don, would lead worship in front of this place of death because the praises of His people scatter the enemy.

I remember the day Christin Gilbert died, a down syndrome young girl who had been taken to Tiller's and died at the hands of none other then Leroy Carhart, one of the four being held in high esteem in this movie, and made out to be somewhat of a hero;  which is such a dichotomy as Christin is not the only woman Carhart has butchered along with the 1,000's of babies he has killed.  

Abortionists Leroy Carhart, George Tiller, Shelly Sella &Susan Robinson
prior to a dinner in Topeka thrown in honor by then Governor Sebellius.
 (Operation Rescue)
Yes, abortionist Carhart would drive down from Nebraska to perform abortions at Tiller's abortuary along with Shelly Sella and Susan Robinson flying in each month to also help along with the business of late term abortions.  Three out of the four abortionists in this film used to kill little human beings regularly at Tillers.

I feel at times that it was just a terrible nightmare what I saw at that place of death, but it wasn't, it really happened, I truly saw evil.

These four are not heros;  heros save lives, they don't brutally kill innocent human beings.  I like and agree with what Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue stated in a Fox interview, "After Tiller” is nothing more than a propaganda piece for late-term abortions.  The movie tries to portray them as caring people – even heroes – but the side I have seen of these people more resembles the persona of Kermit Gosnell than Albert Schweitzer,” she said. “In my opinion, they all belong in prison.”

No, I will never forget the ashes, ever, and for all the little baby boys and girls that lost their little lives at that abortuary, my heart cries, but my resolve remains strong to continue on being that voice for those who have no voice, pressing forward toward the day that unborn human beings will be protected. 

When I grow weary and tired, I will always remember the ashes, and this dear Lord I persevere for your precious little children.

Early Pregnancy Tests---The New Back to School Specials!

My friend Allura posted a picture on her facebook page of a back to school special at one of the many Walgreens.  Now, one would expect the usual items needed such as pencils, pens, erasers, sharpners, paper, folders, notebooks, calculators, index cards, file folders and more.  But now, one can find  something very different amongst the good deals for school and that is a special on early pregnancy tests!  Yes, that's right, early pregnancy tests!

Now, I may be naive or maybe it's because I'm getting older, but, really, early pregnancy tests to get ready for school?  You think that you have heard everything, but then something like this stares you in the face and you wonder, what in the world is going on?

What does this say to the young ladies in our community?  You better make sure you stock up and keep those e.p.t.'s in your backpack because you will need them this year?  

I remember the old saying, "You've come a long way baby," well, looking at this set up at Walgreens indicates to me, that we as women have not come along way baby, as a matter of fact, we have fallen into the precipice of losing self-respect and hungering after love in all the wrong places.  

I never thought I would say it, but back in the good ole days, girls cared about keeping their virginity and the ones who didn't, well I'm not going to say here what people thought.  But my how things have changed!

Now, being a virgin in high school is an oddity and a rarity, and a girl who sets out to do it, if known, is thought to be strange.  But, on the contrary, she is the wise one and these girls and young men need to be prayed for as they seek to remain pure.

Ministering in front of the abortion centers gives me and others a first hand observation as to the trouble we are having in our society and community with the messages we send to the youth of America today, for we see everyday teenagers coming for their abortions on a regular basis and the percentage of them claiming to be Christians.  From as young as 12, (actually when I was in Wichita, there was a girl that was ten that came to George Tiller's center) on up. We see them coming in with their boyfriends, mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, friends, brothers, sisters, and sometimes pimps.  

Most laugh, and are sarcastic, some are sad and confused.  Some are coming for their fourth, fifth, sometimes their tenth abortion and are very hard and cold.  Yes, this is the reality of the way things really are with many of the boyfriends dropping their girls off, laughing and leaving.  One young man almost beat me up one day, but the security guard of the abortuary I was at stopped him from laying a hand on me.

No, we have not come a long way baby, and messages like the one at Walgreens doesn't help young ladies gain self-respect, it only helps to lead them to a place of no self-respect.

My hope and prayer is for the young people of today; that they would see how very precious they are in God's sight and that it is worth seeking a life of purity and righteousness.

If you happen to be at a Walgreen's, and see a display like this, don't be afraid to go to the manager and have a friendly talk about why something like this is damaging for our youth and maybe, just maybe there will be a counter revolution to the sexual depravity in   our nation.  May God Help Us!
