Subject: State refuses to restore abortionist James Scott Pendergraft’s medical license
From: Scott & Patte Smith
Praise the Lord! A good report!
Mary Jo & Marian were at the Orlando Women’s Center killing place this afternoon when Chuck Green from Channel 9 (WFTV) came by because of the state’s ruling against Pendergraft. The suspension of Pendergraft’s license will remain for another year.
Together for Life & Eternity,
See WFTV’s story here:
There’s a video of the newscast here too. It took a little while to load on my browser, but it’s well worth the wait and look. It’s very even handed and perhaps tells mainly our side.
There is a GREAT quote by Mary Jo Gardner, one of the young sidewalk counselors in Orlando, in the video!
(BTW: If you subscribe to Mary Jo’s blog, you can get a lot of updates from the effort in Orlando.)

ORLANDO, Fla. — Opponents call a local abortion doctor a butcher and only Channel 9 was there Friday as the State Medical Board ordered Dr. James Pendergraft not to perform abortions for another year.
The doctor claims it is all political. Opponents said he performed a third trimester abortion at an Orlando clinic. That’s illegal in Florida unless the mother’s life is in danger and it’s performed in a hospital.
Pendergraft owns five Florida abortion clinics. They can do up to 375 abortions a month, but two years ago he charged a woman $12,000 to terminate her pregnancy in the 28th week. Friday, he was disciplined by the State Medical Board.
Pendergraft’s license had been suspended 16 months during the investigation. Friday, it was extended another year. He was also fined $10,000 and ordered to pay more than $80,000 to cover the states legal fees
Pendergraft’s attorney tried to fight the fines and failed. After the hearing, Pendergraft slipped out a side door and avoided questions.
Protesters outside of his office had plenty to say.
“He’s been killing children through nine months of pregnancy here for a number of years. I have personally met women who have been as far along as eight months and I think he should be thrown in jail,” said Mary Jo Gardner.
Medical malpractice attorney Mark Morsch agrees.
“What would be right is for Dr. Pendergraft to never have a medical license in the state of Florida,” he said.
Morsch is worried about what could happen a year from now when Dr. Pendergraft’s suspension ends.
“Based on his track record, there is going to be more young women in the future who are victims of his incompetence,” Morsch said.
The State Department of Health received a complaint that Dr. Pendergraft was performing abortions while his license was suspended. They did not find any evidence to support that claim.
Pendergraft’s supporters say it’s all political and it’s an attempt to outlaw abortion in Florida.

“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

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.

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification
In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.
By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

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)

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.
