TITUSVILLE, FL (FR) – This was the second residential picket of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando CEO Susan Idtensohn’s neighborhood on Saturday, October 29th, 2011. Idtensohn is the outspoken director of an abortion mill in the heart of the black community near downtown Orlando. She lives in a lovely, spacious house about 45 minutes away on the Indian River Lagoon overlooking the Kennedy Space Center launch pad.
The first Awareness Campaign in Idtensohn’s community was on July 19th 2011.
Peaceful pickets of abortionist’s neighborhoods follow the law and provide a good model of concerned citizens using their first amendment rights to speech, press, assembly, religion and petition.
The highlight of this most recent awareness campaign and picket was the dialog and debate between long-time Melbourne-area pro-life evangelist Frank Campana and a neighbor who spouted every pro-abort cliché in the book. While Campana’s response was boisterous, this contender ironically caused the biggest disturbance to the neighborhood in contrast to the peaceful singing, picketing and praying of 33 Christians on this beautiful fall afternoon from 4 to 6 pm.
The effect of an Awareness Campaign is always to divide the community with strong reactions on either side.
We also met a Jewish Rabbi and his wife who stopped his car and thanked us for what we were doing. His wife took pictures of the procession as Lisa Campana spoke with them.
John Barros and Amber Carroll went door to door and talked to Sue’s neighbors. One of her neighbors who lives directly across the street said that they are Christians and had lived there for many years. They had no idea that Sue kill babies for a living. They said that the Idtensohns seemed like such “nice” people. This happens at every neighborhood awareness event. It is always touching to me to see the hurt looks on Christians’ faces when they realize their neighbor is a baby killer. We tell them to pray for their conversion and true repentance. We ask them to share the love of Jesus.
We heard last summer that Idtensohn was selling her home and planned to move out of state. Some might ask: If she is moving in the near future, was it still an effective picket?
Here is a clip from an article in Orlando Weekly from 2006 that answers that question.
PPGO’s capital campaign continues, with the count currently at $1.9 million — and none of that money has come through federal funding. The funds will be used to open a much-needed facility in Brevard County. After that, it’s on to Osceola and Seminole.
Yes, Planned Parenthood of Orlando, even after Idtensohn’s departure, has plans to open up abortion “super centers” on the Space Coast and throughout central Florida. We also know abortionist James Pendergraft would like to open late term killing places in Cocoa, Florida and elsewhere.
But dedicated gentle Christians will be coming to their communities and preaching the Word of God — that child murder is an abomination that brings a curse on our land.
Of course, articles in the pro-abortion media featuring Sue Idtensohn as a “family planning advocate” never mention the word “abortion.” The lasting legacy for Sue Idtensohn will be that people will remember them not as crusaders for women’s rights, but as child murderers.
Every abortionist, clinic owner and worker in central Florida will have a legacy written in the blood of the innocents. Eventually, no one will desire that legacy, either due to the gift of repentance or simply the shame that comes through having their bloody deeds of darkness exposed. This will come as Christians obey the Ephesians 5:11 mandate: “Have nothing to do with the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.”

“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. More recently, it was by catching just a glimpse of what this film reveals that Planned Parenthood director and abortion advocate Abby Johnson turned and became a strong advocate for the pre-born.
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.

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!

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)
