A pastor friend of ours from Cincinnati, Ohio recently wrote in his blog about the audacity of James Pendergraft, who is covered several times in The Abortion Matrix DVD. He is one of the most notorious late term abortionists in America.
With the recent news of the arrest of abortionist Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia for murdering seven babies born alive, as well as for the deaths of several women due to gross negligence, Pendergraft’s continued activity ought to give judicial authorities pause to realize that they are enabling another mass murderer.
Complicity for this blood-guilt extends to the church as well. Over a year ago, George “The Killer” Tiller was gunned down while he served as an usher at Reformation Lutheran Church of Wichita. While we condemn the actions of Tiller’s assassin, we need to be soberly aware of the fact that this “doctor” was guilty of the same type of murders that Gosnell committed. In several documented cases, Pendergraft, Tiller and Gosnell let babies born alive after botched abortions die without adequate medical supervision. In Tiller’s case, it was documented that he punctured the head of at least one infant born alive and injected poison into the brain. James Pendergraft is currently being sued in the case of one infant who survived a botched abortion. So these charges of illegal infanticide are not mere speculation.
In Gosnell’s case, the Pennsylvania authorities allowed these horrors to continue unabated for over 17 years. Amidst numerous allegations no investigations were conducted. The Kansan courts treated Tiller’s infanticide of babies born alive as if they were no different than the legal late-term abortions he performed. Finally, a frustrated and unstable vigilante took matters into his own hands. While the peaceful pro-life movement condemns such actions, we should also state unequivocally that law enforcement ought to share part of the blame for not prosecuting crimes that are in violation of laws on the books, such as the Born Alive Infant Protection Act.
Here in Orlando, James Pendergraft continues to operate five abortion clinics in the state of Florida although his medical license is currently under suspension for illegal activity and gross negligence. Who continues to ply Pendergraft’s lucrative business while his license is suspended? At Orlando Women’s center, one abortionist, Randall Whitney, is currently on trial for a second degree felony stemming from an incident in which he slapped a woman on the operating table. He was arrested a second time less than six months later for failing to show up at his court hearing.
Also filling in the gaps at Orlando Women’s Center in the absence of James Pendergraft is Walker Whaley who spent time in prison and had his medical license suspended for manufacturing synthetic cocaine in his home. Yes, in the state of Florida, we allow convicted cocaine felons to regain their medical licenses. To add another bizarre twist to this lurid tale, Whaley’s criminal activity has even extended into controversy over the use of performance enhancing supplements in the NBA.
If you want to know more about this, I encourage you to order: The Abortion Matrix. This is a ten-part, 195-minute seminar on the spiritual roots child killing. We document that this is no mere medical procedure or political issue. Increasingly abortion advocates are admitting that this really is infanticide and child sacrifice.
I also encourage you to get involved with the Personhood Initiative in your state. Politicians, police and the courts will not even prosecute the murders of infants born alive at this point. Citizen led initiatives to declare the legal Personhood of all human beings from the beginning of biological development may now be the only way to finally end this insanity.
The following piece by Pastor Patrick Hines gives yet another example of the barbarism into which we have descended as a culture. Today’s abortionists admit that the procedure they perform is not the termination of a “mass of cells,” but that they are killing “babies.” They even admit that these are real persons – human beings in the womb that we ought to care about and remember.
Am I Dreaming?
By Patrick Hines
The following is from abortionist James Pendergraft’s website.
At the Women’s Centers we are prepared to aid patients and their families in getting through the entire process with our compassionate and caring staff, supporting them from the beginning to the end of the termination procedure. Each patient goes through the procedure process differently. We encourage all patients to at least see the baby minimally as we believe that this is the best way to bring closure for families. We are also prepared to help families have a memory of their child such as having a handprint or a footprint. Some patients want the baby to be cremated and others want a burial to take place.
Think about that statement: “We are also prepared to help families have a memory of their child such as having a handprint or a footprint.”
Folks, this is something people have done for their dogs they have put to sleep. But even then, people usually only have their pet dogs put to sleep because their lives are about to end anyway. Here we have a man who kills babies up to the 24th week for money even if they are perfectly healthy. And he offers to have a hand or a footprint made so they can have “a memory of their child.” He doesn’t even attempt to depersonalize the unborn by calling them “fetal tissue” or “product of conception” or any other such terminology. Instead, he comes right out and calls it “the baby” and “their child.”
When I read stuff like this, I often have to slap myself in the face to see if I’m dreaming.

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981
Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.
The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.
“…a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?
Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!
Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.
Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)
