Court rules Kissimmee Planned Parenthood cannot provide abortion

“Abortion is not surgery” claims Planned Parenthood CEO in contradictory statements

KISSIMMEE, Florida (www.forerunner.com) – Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando (PPGO) has for over a year conspired with Florida Hospital and several city officials to open an 8,800 square foot abortion mega center in the heart of the Hispanic and minority community of Kissimmee.

Planned Parenthood’s Kissimmee abortion mega-center has been the target of public outcry since their plans to open across the street from Osceola Regional Medical Center were uncovered in March 2014. (Photo credit: Amber Carroll.)

On Wednesday, July 23, 2014, a circuit judge granted a temporary injunction forbidding surgical abortion and all diagnostic testing at the newly opened center.

A lawsuit filed by a partnership of neighboring doctors held that there is a restrictive covenant with Osceola Regional Medical Center that prohibits outpatient surgical centers in the medical park known as Oak Commons.

The judge ruled that PPGO “purchased the property with the knowledge of the restrictions and proceeded at its own peril.”

Planned Parenthood did a ceremonial ribbon cutting in May with incendiary leftist congressman Alan Grayson in tow. Although PPGO CEO Jenna Tosh announced they were open for business, they planned to begin doing abortions with a full-time medical director and abortionist sometime in August.

Tosh has said at various times to the press that abortion is “less than ten percent” of what they do.

When Jenna Tosh appeared in court this month, she appeared even more evasive and deceptive in her comments. She claimed on one hand in a signed affidavit that abortion was about “one percent” of their services. Tosh also claimed that the organization would not be able to survive financially if they lost this projected income.

Tosh argued that the covenant restricting surgery in Oak Commons did not apply to PPGO because abortions are “not surgery” because they do not involve “incisions.” The Court responded in an ironic tone:

The Court notes that Ms. Tosh’s education does not involve and formal medical training and cannot escape the fact that Ms. Tosh’s own words repeatedly employ the phrase “surgical abortions.”

If Tosh seems outrageous and arrogant in her claims, consider the following lead-in to a local Channel 13 News report.

The new Planned Parenthood facility in Kissimmee has been barred from performing its most controversial of services – medical procedures [emphasis added].

The obvious word “abortion” is changed here in favor of the misleading and impossible notion that all “medical procedures” are controversial. Why hide the fact that the only controversial medical procedure PPGO performs is abortion?

“Abortion” has been replaced by generic code phrase “reproductive health services.” In the recent Hobby Lobby, Supreme Court case, the press promoted the false idea the family-oriented business wanted to bar its employees from “access to contraception,” rather than choose not to pay for two specific forms of drugs widely considered to act as abortifacients.

The pro-abortion propaganda machine must deceive their audience with rhetorical smokescreens and euphemisms. The “A” word is rarely mentioned in the mainstream media. This belies the fact that plain speaking on the issue of abortion is a losing proposition for their side.

Whenever biblical truth is obscured in a culture, people will resort to suppressing plain facts that expose human depravity. The effort to deny truth results in self-deception and blindness to obvious reality. All alternative worldviews are contrived to deny the truth of God.

C.S. Lewis, once wrote about liberal critics of the Bible, “They claim to see fern-seed and can’t see an elephant ten yards away in broad daylight.”

Likewise, modern journalists have lost the ability to communicate sensibly on the topic of abortion. They have descended into a vague Orwellian “Newspeak.” Consider the following quote from a Planned Parenthood press release touting its proposed New Orleans abortion mega-center:

The overwhelming majority of Planned Parenthood services focus on prevention including contraception, breast and cervical cancer screenings and testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections. If these protesters were truly committed to reducing unintended pregnancies, the need for abortion and the alarming rates of sexually transmitted infections and HIV in this community, they would stop the harassment and work with Planned Parenthood and other health care providers to address these dangerous health disparities.

- Jewel Bush, Communications Director, Louisiana Planned Parenthood

Compare this to the press release describing the Kissimmee abortion mega-center:

… the new center will be a full-service reproductive health center, offering everything from AIDS/HIV counseling to breast-cancer screenings to vasectomies and well-woman screenings…. if the opponents of the new center were truly committed to reducing the number of unintended pregnancies, they’d be working with Planned Parenthood to increase access to affordable birth control and comprehensive sex education.

- Jenna Tosh, CEO, Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando

Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion provider, receives over half a billion dollars per year from taxpayer funds. Their local public relations directors are either not capable of speaking for themselves – or else they are glibly unaware that the talking points fed to them are nothing more than bald faced lies. The liberal press perpetuates the charade by acting as the propaganda arm for the abortion giant.

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

The Silent Scream (DVD) Eight Languages

“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

Languages: English, Spanish, French, South Korean, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese

Freedom: The Model of Christian Liberty (DVD)

“Give me liberty or give me death!”

Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.

The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).

Welcome to the Second American Revolution!

This DVD features “Liberty: The Model of Christian Liberty” along with “Dawn’s Early Light: A Brief History of America’s Christian Foundations.” Bonus features include a humorous but instructive collection of campaign ads and Eric Holmberg’s controversial YouTube challenge concerning Mitt Romney’s campaign for president.

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

Who is the Real Jesus?

Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.

Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.

The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.

Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!

In the Days of These Kings (Book)

Perfect-bound Paperback — 740 pages

The Book of Daniel in Preterist Perspective

“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever” (Daniel 2:44).

The overarching message of Daniel is that Jesus the Messiah is even now ruling over the nations. He is the King of kings. Daniel tells us that Messiah’s kingdom will advance in the whole world from “generation to generation” (Daniel 4:4,34). Christ’s dominion is “given to the people of the saints of the most High” (Daniel 7:22). Our purpose then is to see “all people, nations, and languages … serve and obey him” (Daniel 7:14,27).

This comprehensive work offers a fascinating look at the book of Daniel in preterist perspective. Great attention is paid to the writings of ancient and modern historians and scholars to connect the dots and demonstrate the continuity of Daniel’s prophecy with all of Scripture.
