Awareness Campaign at Planned Parenthood CEO Jenna Tosh's neighborhood

>

WINTER PARK, Florida (www.forerunner.com) – It was a balmy Saturday morning in central Florida. Andrew and Jenna Tosh went for a walk in their upper middle class neighborhood with their young son in a stroller and dog on a leash. Upon returning to their home they were greeted by the sight of 28 pro-life evangelists lining the sidewalk in their neighborhood on Aloma Avenue. Many were holding graphic signs depicting aborted babies from six weeks gestation through late term.

Someone promptly called the police. The Tosh family was then able to run the gauntlet of pro-lifers. Most did not recognize Jenna as the new CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando and simply greeted them as passersby. Arriving at her front door, she summoned a police officer that had arrived in her driveway and briefly burst into tears.

In a recent interview in Orlando Weekly, Tosh said she expected to meet with opposition due to her position as a CEO with Planned Parenthood, the largest single abortion provider in America.

It’s obviously unsettling. I do have a young child and I have had to take a number of safety precautions already…. But it is just the world we’ve grown accustomed to in the Planned Parenthood family. Just because there are some crazy people who might want to hurt my family doesn’t mean that these services aren’t critically important, because they are. I’m not going to back down to bullies just because they have some backward opinion about how women should be living our lives.

Indeed the sight of a young mother and father, with a toddler and a dog in tow being somehow threatened by “crazies” is sure to provoke the anger of abortion rights advocates and even some concern among those who are pro-life.

One Orlando area pro-life activist, Heather Mellichamp, a mother of two young children, sympathized, but put added her own perspective.

If this was about anything besides abortion, I’d feel sorry for her, especially with her little boy right there. But then I remind myself: She’s in the business of baby murder – killing tiny children – and that is absolutely unacceptable.

Despite Jenna Tosh’s fears, the demonstration was without incident like dozens of other pro-life neighborhood Awareness Campaigns that have been conducted in central Florida in the past few years. The police told the sign holders they were “good to go” as long as trespass laws were not being violated.

Pat McEwen of Life Coalition International agreed that the demeanor of the Awareness Campaign was peaceful, but added that the call to the police was based on a lie.

The policeman [seen in the video] talked to me later. He said he was angry, but not at us. He said the lies made him angry – that people who disagreed with what we were doing had to tell lies about us. Some lies he mentioned were that we playing loud music – he said that he heard none; that we were yelling at cars passing – he heard only cars yelling at us; that we were blocking the road and sidewalk – he saw none of that and that when he walked by me I moved immediately to give him more room.

Pro-life sidewalk counselor Allura Lightfoot, who sometimes ministers at Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando, asks if redemption could come out of this experience.

I wonder if her tears could be the beginning of a softened heart. I hope and pray she is not able to sleep at night as she is haunted by the realization that unlike her little boy, hundreds of little girls and boys will never go for a walk around the neighborhood with mommy and daddy because she allowed them to be slaughtered in her place of business.

Well-known pro-life blogger, Jill Stanek, points out that this further begs the question.

Why did she start crying Saturday? She could have been humiliated by the exposure. She could have been upset that her young son saw graphic photos of how she makes her living. She could have been shocked at the realization her home was no longer a respite. The best hope is Jenna’s heart was pierced, and she’s on the road to a conversion. I do know a lot of people were praying for Jenna Saturday and continue to pray.

The purpose of a Neighborhood Awareness Campaign is to call abortion providers to repentance and salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. The campaign also makes use of flyers to call on neighbors and concerned Christians to “adopt an abortionist” in prayer.

Your comments are welcome!

I will most definitely be praying for her heart to be softened and for her attitude to change and see that we’re not backwards, but that we’re so advanced we see that a life at any age is precious and should be held as such.

You call those who hold signs up showing what abortion REALLY looks like is wrong? You call those who are against abortion/baby murder “crazies” in this article? You should thank God for YOUR life and do everything you can to prevent another abortion from taking place! I guarantee that if you could watch an abortion in person, you WOULD change the way you feel and subsequently the way you write. Jenna Tosh deserves to come up against anyone who wants to preserve a precious baby that didn’t ask to be conceived and has to be murdered for no reason!! May God forgive.

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

Running Time: 28 minutes

Why Creeds and Confessions? (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 219 pages

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy

Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.

Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.

Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.

The Four Keys to the Millennium (Book)

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.
