Need a Laugh?

I know I do!  Enjoy!

Still Deliberating!

  • "Bryan Kemper of the pro-life group Stand True has been closely monitoring the case and put it in perspective for pro-life people getting impatient about a verdict. “Everyone needs to understand the jury must have 227 verdicts, not just one in the Gosnell murder trial. This can take a long time. Keep praying for the Jury and also for the soul of Gosnell,” he said. Gosnell is charged with four counts of first-degree murder for killing babies following delivery in an abortion process that involved “snipping” their necks and spinal cords. He also faces a third-degree murder charge related to the death of a woman, Karnamaya Mongar, 41, of Virginia, from a botched legal abortion. Gosnell, who has been in jail since his January 2011 arrest. CLICK LIKE IF YOU’RE PRO-LIFE!

    The abortionist faces 258 counts total and other charges against him include one count of infanticide and one of racketeering, 24 counts of performing third-trimester abortions and 227 counts of failing to follow the 24-hour waiting period law before an abortion so women can consider its risks and alternatives.
    The jury for the Gosnell case told Judge Minehart that they are drained.  They worked all morning and through lunch.  The judge dismissed them for the weekend and deliberations will resume Monday morning. Pray for the jury not only for the decision, but also how this is affecting them.  I pray that this will be a case that will cause them to look further into this subject.  May they learn that Gosnell is not the only one.  I am not sure how aware they are about this fact.

Praying for Passports

This week there have been many conversations on prayer with friends.  We see people like Carhart and Gosnell and their workers and we see how hardened they are.  Dr. Bernard Nathanson's heart was very hardened and so have been many other abortionists, abortion nurses and staff. 

In many cases, abortion workers have become pro-life and even have turned their lives over to Christ for the forgiveness and repentance of what they had done.  They have sought healing in Jesus Christ and in turn have been granted the peace of Jesus Christ for their tortured minds, souls and memories of their pasts.  

Many would shirk at the thought that a Carhart or a Gosnell-type abortionist could ever come to Christ or that they should be forgiven of their heinous acts.  Only God knows these abortionists' hearts if they actually do.  It's not to say they still won't reap the consequences of their actions.  Gosnell may get prison time or even the death penalty, Carhart could suffer consequences of a different stripe.  Full restoration COULD be possible.  If that ever happens, shouldn't they expect the peace of God's forgiveness as we have with God forgiving us of our sins?   It's like Paul of Tarsus....we would have that suspicion that many had about Paul.  "He was killing Christians just days ago....can we really trust him to really be one of His now?"  I wonder how people interacted with Dr. Nathanson after he became pro-life and a believer.  By some, he must have been a turncoat.  To some in the pro-life circles, it probably took them a long time to determine his credibility and sincerity.   

Well, it hasn't happened yet for other abortionists.  Gosnell and Carhart are remorseless and there's the possibility that they both  might reject Jesus even to the very last breath.  We really don't know.  It looks really bad in that it seems maybe they may not even suffer any consequences from an earthly justice system.  Carhart's walking free, along with many other abortionists (Sharpe, Sella, Hern, Chase) and Gosnell possibly could walk free.  While that is really hard to believe, it's still very possible.  Dr. William Baxter Waddill  walked free and to read the account, it looked very open-and-shut case.  Yet, not only did he walk free, he didn't lose his license, get slapped with any penalties or reprimands and went back to committing abortions.   Could that happen to Gosnell?   It boggles the mind to think that it could repeat but many were pretty surprised when Casey Anthony was declared not guilty.

Please don't think I am all puppies, kittens, rainbows and warm fuzzies about these cold-blooded, remorseless killers.   I am not set to bake a batch of brownies and deliver them with a bouquet of balloons with a card saying, "Cheer up, things are going to work out okay!"  I am thoroughly horrified, sickened, disgusted and appalled by the depths of deviancy they continue to display.  Gosnell is calm and arrogant with not a hint of feeling for his maimed and murdered victims.  Carhart, likewise, remains calm and arrogant, laughing about the intricacies of his bloody vocation.  They will never really receive the earthly level of true retribution they deserve for what happened to those babies and women.

 I am not talking vengeance.  Gosnell will get 3 square meals a day, he'll have a bed to sleep in and he'll acclimate to prison life if he gets that.  Those babies gasped for air and then they experienced the worst pain possible that any human being could experience. Those women who were part of the Mother's Day Massacre with the"super coil" experiment at the hands of Gosnell suffered too.  No, Gosnell will get far better treatment than those babies and women.

It all seems so hopeless. It's very easy to just throw up our hands in despair and want to give up on the world.  Give up on those abortionists.  Think up terrible ways for them to be paid back for what they did.  Those abortion nurses.....forget them.   Those abortion workers.  WHO cares????  Let them all just end up in Hell.  So what?  It can be very easy to just put them all out of our minds and tend to other things.  After all, isn't American Idol on in about 10 minutes, dear?  Isn't there a crop to be harvested on Farmville?  It's easy for me to say those things because I partake in neither but you can name my time-waster/weakness and I'll probably agree.....I just don't want to think about trials and abortion right now.   It is all too much and I just want it all to go away.   Those abortionists....sigh....."I just don't care". 

Today, as I was doing my reading, I came across an article and I almost didn't click on it.   The title grabbed me and the word "deathscort" popped up.  A "deathscort" is a term given to a person who helps the woman bypass all the pro-life sidewalk counselors to ensure they are escorted into the abortion mill.  I have read many accounts by pro-lifers in describing "deathscorts" and they are sometimes every bit as nasty-acting as the abortionists themselves.  I don't know if they get kickbacks from the abortions or it's just purely volunteer.  Either way, they take part in contributing to death.

So here is the link of a testimony which really moved me and has been on my mind all day.

Laura's Testimony

Here's another testimony that I came across recently:   Deborah's Testimony

Obviously these women both recognized they were far from Jesus and needed forgiveness.  I love the testimonies of abortionists who have become pro-life warriors now.  These people often fear ostracization or unemployment but God will provide the means to overcome any obstacle.  God can work through anyone mightily once they recognize their need for a Savior and surrender their lives to Him!! 

Finally, my last link to share Behind-the-scenes of the Kermit Gosnell trial 

Consider these testimonies and pray for the transformed lives!!  It's hard for the finite human brain to comprehend a Kermit Gosnell, a LeRoy Carhart (and others like them) to be cleansed by the blood of Jesus and a citizenship of Heaven.  I admit my own difficulty in this although I try my best to envision it for others (especially those who are super hostile to Christ....Bill Mahar, for example).  I want to see restoration!   Stephen and Paul are now in Heaven together, praising Jesus. Could anyone envision that when Saul was dragging men and women out of their homes and committing them in prison?  I charge you, keep praying for these chief sinners!

1 Timothy 1:12-17
And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry,  although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.  And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.  This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.  However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

Serpentining and Synapsing

We have hope.  As Christians, we see the dark world around us and we are forced to interact with it.  We don't want to be of the world but we are in it.  This is what comes to mind with all the news and videos that have poured forth this past week.

It has been difficult news week.  Since last Sunday, the Live Action group has been revealing all the undercover videos showing the abortion facilities and their workers' worldviews.  It's ugly to hear such blatant coldness and cruelty laid out on the table.  There's never an opportune time to see it or share it.  I honestly hate it and I am not even IN the deeper trenches of this world.  I can understand the strident urgency of many sidewalk counselors as they share what they see and hear outside of abortion mills.  It does pay off when a mill closes due to the exposure it receives.  I am not in those trenches and all I do is convey the reports of others.  I don't mind, at this point, being a big mouth.  It all needs to out there.

I know people tune out but some people are JUST NOW tuning in to the Gosnell debacle.  They are just now discovering for the first time what has been going on underground for over 40 years.  Many are waking up from a stupor.  Many have been asleep.  They have zero idea that Gosnell has been operating the way he has and it's the prime time to tell them that Gosnell is not alone.  Gosnell-activity has been taking place in numerous neighborhoods all over the U.S.A.  No doubt, it's happening in other countries as well but we are pretty lax here in our country due to Roe vs. Wade and Doe vs. Bolton.

In addition to the Lila Rose videos, the news of the big trial has progressed from closing arguments to jury deliberation.  So far, no verdict has taken place; we who are following the events of the trial, wait earnestly.  Fox News aired a special show on Gosnell last night.  It might be on YouTube but I haven't looked there yet.  It might be worth checking out if you are not a cable subscriber or you missed it.  It will be re-aired on Sunday.   It was pretty much a culmination of what has been taking place in the 30+ years of Gosnell's career.

Last night I sat down to watch the show.   I am no tough-minded person or hard-hearted soul.  The story horrified me from the very beginning.  The research that I took on personally over a decade ago has been a steady stream of horrific realization of the abortion industry's brutality and callousness.  This is the difficult part for me.  I am an extremely sensitive person and can cry at the drop of the hat.  Sometimes the shock is so deep that no tears come at all.  In my research I take all the information in and digest it.  Sometimes the shock is just that.  No tears are shed and I go on.  I pray as things hit me hard.  The fact never leaves that we live in a very evil world.  The sins of people know no boundaries.  Many people will relate when I share "Just when you think humankind can sink no lower, the new report on the television shows you differently".  So for 12 to 15 years, I saw the new low and then the new low and more new lows.

I think about people who are on the police force, in the medical world and the first responders.  They see so much and they go in to their work shifts and face it all again.  You know they have to prepare their hearts and steel themselves to keep doing their work.  It's not that they never get shocked or hurt but you know they have to compartmentalize sections of their work and personal life.  What a fuzzy line trying to not bring their work home to their families.  I have a deep respect for the amount of evil, pain and surprising information they encounter not just daily but for life-long careers.  Yes, there is reward in those fields and it is a calling.

So given that angle, I will say for all my sensitivity, my senses have been (not too simplistically, mind you)...dulled?  Hardened?  Desensitized?  Nonchalant? No, there is denial of that, for deep down that could never truly happen, right? I could  NOT be desensitized.  I feel too much.  Reading research of abortionists, their victims, the practices, the mentalities of the abortion-minded world, it's just too much.  It weighs heavily and Gosnell hits viscerally.  I don't know how many of you relate...but we want to be tough sometimes.  We say..."Hey, I can take anything.  I am no wimp.  Compartmentalize THIS in the file 'How the mind works and other scientific fascinations'. Study it in a sterile environment with a microscope.  Or maybe you can file it under "Famous Criminal Court Cases;".  We stand tall and shielded from the hurt and evil the world throws at us.  Nothing will knock US down, right? 

So I sat down to  Bret Baier's professional treatment of Gosnell.  The show  "See No Evil"  went into an amazing amount of detail, including the history of Gosnell's "super coil" experiment back in 1972, also known as The Mother's Day Massacre.  While much of the show was an elaborated report of the Grand Jury report and updated coverage of the trial, tears would not stop flowing.   The thought of Satan laughing and dancing at all of the grotesque events would not leave my mind.  Going into this show, I knew it would be difficult information but at the base of it,  I could stomach it because of the boatload of reading  ever since the story first broke.  The decade of ugly stuff on abortion had prepared me for Gosnell.  Yet, the tears would not stop.  Those women who were his victims live with their reality every day.  They have physical, mental, emotional and spiritual scars as a consequence.  For the most of us, the pain is only from reading about it.

After the show was over, my mind was racing.  I contacted Bret Baier with an email thanking him for addressing Gosnell's case in detail.  In addition,  I reiterated that Gosnell is no aberration.  He has a band of fellow abortionists just as heinous as Gosnell.   There was a tweetfest for Gosnell. Now it's time for a tweetfest for Carhart, Sella, Robinson, Brigham, Pendergraft, Hern, Haskell and Reginald Sharpe (in Michigan).  The case will be over soon and depending on the outcome, a new jury will be impaneled for the penalty phase.  Other than Fox and maybe the Drudge Report with a handful of pro-life websites, this case will disappear.  Kimberly Guilfoyle mentioned that Gosnell's case defies the "if it bleeds, it leads" news protocol.  The abortion world wants this case to go away and to cover up the rest. Then it will go away until the next Gosnell pops up. 

For pro-lifers, the new job is to beat the drum of Gosnell's ghoulish cohorts.  Every time Gosnell's name gets mentioned, we must let the inquirers know there are numerous Gosnell's.  We need to direct them to the websites that show this.  We need to be ready on our feet to direct them to root out the Gosnell's in their own neighborhoods......"they just have not been caught YET".  Local health authorities should be quaking in their shoes at the thought of their own Gosnell skeletons being revealed.  People need to start questioning their own politicians, "Is there a Gosnell in OUR city?"  See that big giant rock over there?  Pick it up and see what scurries to get out of the light!

Go to Abortion Docs or go to Real Choice to check out the different abortionists' histories. Sometimes I hear people ask, "Why bother?  Evil is around us and it's only going to get worse. We won't be making any headway in this. Abortions will always happen no matter what."   The encouraging news is that there used to be over 2,000 abortion mills back in 1991.   As of 2013, we are down to less than half that.

The stakeouts are working, the prayer vigils are working, the sidewalk counseling is working and so are the crisis pregnancy centers, the educational materials and the social networks and bloggers.   Those pro-life websites are growing and tweetfests can do some amazing things too.  It will be a heart change.  Envision this: bulldozed Planned Parenthood's because even with all the millions of dollars and president's speeches, they can't beg anyone to darken their doorstep.  Okay...that seems a stretch, I know, but the fact of the matter is that more places are closing permanently. I needed to add this which I forgot in the original posting:  we are the hands and feet of Christ.  I don't want anyone to think that any of these closings are the people's personal ambitions or accomplishments. They shouldn't be seeking glory or fame for these closings. We delight and rejoice but it is so important to give all glory to Him when these marvelous things take place.  His timing and His ways reign (the exciting thing I often think about is when the New Jerusalem is here and ALL abortions will be over forever so Planned Parenthood's days are definitely numbered).

I know we are ever close than before for Jesus' return.  Things will get uglier out there in that world.  We still need to interact with it and not run and hide in the hills.  We need to be reaching others with the Gospel.  We need to be letting people know that with these dark events with Gosnell, the Boston Bombing and the West, Texas catastrophe that we have a hope in Jesus Christ.  I had a sweet encounter the other day with a young lady who was hungry for the Good News.  I thank God for putting me in that divine appointment.  Some will reject Him but we need to keep sharing Jesus Christ no matter what. 

Luke 19:41-44
Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it,  saying, For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side,  and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”

INHUMAN: Video 3 from Live Action

This is the third video that was released.  This takes place in Arizona.  The doctor should have her medical license stripped for lying to the woman.  Of course, if a license isn't stripped for actually killing women in abortions (and Gosnell isn't even the one in mind on this), they sure won't do it for it for lying. 

The first part of this video takes place in the Florida House of Representatives with Representatives Jim Boyd-R and Daniel Davis-R  asking Planned Parenthood's lobbyist about what would happen to the baby who survived an abortion.  What happens to the baby who is independently breathing on his or her own?  

Did anyone back in the time of 1973, on that day that Roe vs Wade and Doe vs. Bolton was passed think they would see a time where babies would be considered prime targets to kill AFTER they were on the outside of the womb?  Would any of the justices that day ever could have imagined a baby being strangled, drowned, set aside to suffocate or even thrown in a bucket with his or her spinal cord snipped.  Is this their crowning moment of pride and victory?

Someone mentioned the other day that we need to call abortion a different name now.  Abortion is too sanitized.  It should be called Child Sacrifice.   I am ready to call it that now.  


More on Pendergraft

More news on abortionist Pendergraft:

Someone brought up the question whether all 5 of James Pendergraft's abortion mills would be shut down.  The answer came today that all 5 will be done and all the assets will be seized.  I would put the full story in completion here but the best thing to do is to direct you to the link.  Abortion Empire Falls  

There have been a huge group of people praying and ministering regarding this abortion mill.  Someone asked John Barros what he will do now and his answer (rightly so) was, "Move offices".   The work isn't over.  It never will be until every abortion mill is shut down. 

As of today, May 3, 2013 The abortion docs website reflects   Surgical Abortion Clinics 644 left.  That's down one from the last time I saw it which was either the yesterday or the day before yesterday.   For Pill Clinics it is 181....that's up by two from that same visit.   For remaining abortionists, there are 801 left and that fluctuates frequently down to 800.    As you will see, the abortionist who was running things for Pendergraft, Randall Whitney is glad that the place is shutting down.  Many had evangelized to him over the years and while he has not made any changes to accept Christ and to repent (keep praying for him), he has decided to quit abortions, so he claims.  Another abortionist Scott Spagnolo Hye had apparently quit a year ago.   Scott Spagnolo Hye 

Right now, many are watching what is going on in Michigan with Reginald Sharpe.  More on him later.  It's brutal and of course, very corrupt.  There has been a protective web between the authorities and abortionists.  As we learned from Tiller's case, politicians and judges are only too happy to protect the abortion industry.

Wilmington, Delaware's Planned Parenthood  has been shut down for the time being.  Pray THAT never opens again.  Sometimes the places don't reopen.  For them, it is not cost-effective to "clean up".  Which is strange because they get millions of dollars to be able to change things (like the Summit group in Montgomery, Alabama a couple of years ago). 

If you read about all these places, you'll see the pattern that none of these abortion business owners really want the best for women.  They CERTAINLY don't want the best for babies....it's all about death, murder, corruption, coverup, theft, greed and deceit.  

As we frequently express, "Please, Lord, come quickly".   Although I add, "But not so soon as many of my loved ones are not saved yet".  We rest though, in knowing that His timing and ways are perfect.  We do have to remember that when we see these abortion mills closing down and abortionists quitting.  Why didn't they do it earlier?  Why ask why?   His timing and ways are perfect.  This is a spiritual war.  We do no understand as we are finite beings with limited understanding and limited abilities. 
I just say, Thank You, Lord for who You are and what You have done for us!  We will keep praying in a steadfast manner!  ALL glory to You, our loving Father and Sovereign KING!

2 Corinthians 10:1-6
Now I, Paul, myself am pleading with you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ—who in presence am lowly among you, but being absent am bold toward you. But I beg you that when I am present I may not be bold with that confidence by which I intend to be bold against some, who think of us as if we walked according to the flesh. For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,  and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

Word just broke that Pendergraft's abortion mill is closing down for GOOD!

This news was shared by Kelly Clinger who has performed as a backup singer for Britney Spears.  Kelly had two abortions at the Pendergraft abortion mill before she became a Christian.  She is a very dedicated and outspoken pro-life warrior.  She has spent time sidewalk counseling at the very place where she had aborted her babies.  Her testimony has been shared at this blog: Kelly Clinger's Painful Testimony
I am sitting here weeping - attorneys arrived at Orlando Women's Center today to announce it is CLOSING FOR GOOD!!! They are seizing all of Pendergraft's assets. I just can't believe it. I have prayed for this day for so long.

Now we are going to buy it, bulldoze it, and build a memorial garden for all of the babies that have been killed there, including my 2. PRAISE GOD.

"Surely Goodness and Mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever."
From John Barros, an extremely passionate and dedicated sidewalk counselor, who has spent numerous hours rain or shine outside of this abortion mill...
He shares:
By the grace of God, the Christians who minister day in and day out at Orlando Women's Clinic -- one of the worst killing places in the entire U.S. -- are going to need to find themselves a new ministry spot. Praise the Lord!
John Barros
This Is One Of The Most Glorious Days I Have Lived... The Attorneys for the young lady that these guys destroyed stopped by to let me know Orlando Womens' Center is Finished!!!!! They have been searching for and collecting assets for the last year and it is Amazing what they have found. They wanted dates etc. when Pendergraft has been here, how many babies a week they have been killing etc. All the court cases that OWC can have are over... The Lawyers are in Court in Orlando right now finalizing this Nightmare... They asked me if I wanted to go inside and I told them I don't think I could... They are even going to take all the Cabinets furniture etc. that Pendergraft has bought lately.... Please Pray that this finalization is complete this afternoon and that the last days would be quick.... God Bless all of you that have been serving here at OWC and all of you who have been praying
Check out the short film called "22 Weeks" about the event that happened at this mill.  I won't go into it here right now but I will say this comes with a warning.  It's a tough film to see and if you are post-abortive and have difficulty with graphic scenes, it's important to know that this film may be especially hard for you.  
We hear that Pendergraft has had 5 locations of abortion mills so we are assuming the lawyers are taking care of those places as well.  Let's pray that is so.  This guy has to be finished and never be around another woman or baby ever again in his whole life.  
 WE REJOICE when the wicked are no longer allowed to practice their evil works!!!!!!
