Over the past five years, as a Christian newspaper editor, I’ve tried to tell the truth about what is happening in the pro-life movement. Over a year ago, I wrote a article for The Forerunner (“Clearing the Media Smokescreens” Nov/Dec 1993) refuting the liberal media’s coverage of the abortion issue. In this article, I described how I was renting an office in the “Green House” directly across the street from the infamous Aware Woman abortion clinic. I have tried to be an effective eyewitness in the midst of these grave distortions.
Recently, I made a down payment on this house and became the owner. My plan is to keep the property open for daily pro-life activities such as “sidewalk counseling” and prayer vigils. Due to a court-ordered “no-free-speech” injunction restricting this area, private ownership of the Green House is the only thing that allows this ministry to abortion minded women to continue.
- The Green House has been the site of international media coverage of pro-life activities. The Green House has been the site of international media coverage. CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, BBC, German, Japanese, Australian television and many others have covered pro-life events here.
- Christians For Life is the local pro-life organization here in Melbourne, which coordinates all sidewalk counseling and prayer activities at the Green House. We also encourage pastors and Christians in the area to become involved in the abortion issue. The pro-life community here in Melbourne is a strong and cohesive group which has caused Aware Woman’s business to be cut in half in recent years.
- A Pro-life Media Center will also be located at the Green House. I hope to develop pro-life television and print media which will stave off many of the distortions that the liberal media conveys in covering the abortion issue. The Pro-Life Media Center now consists of compiling true testimonies for publication. The Lord has used this in a powerful way. For instance, my testimony which appeared in The Forerunner concerning the 36-foot “no free speech” buffer zone around Aware Woman was used in a scathing dissent by Justice Anthony Scalia in an important Supreme Court decision. We also participate in talk-radio and television interviews, and issue press releases to local and national news media. In the future, we hope to produce videos and other media which will equip Christians for pro-life ministry.
Aware Woman is being propped up by pro-abortion groups because of its high visibility. Abortion providers believe that if pro-lifers succeed in closing this clinic, it will be very bad for the abortion industry in America. I believe that it is God’s will for me to own the Green House and live here until this happens.
Ownership of this piece of property provides an important base for ministry. It is also a very significant hub for the pro-life movement, which is now poised to make some significant advances in our nation.
I have produced a videotape which shows firsthand, the type of ministry and media coverage which goes on here. If you are considering giving, but would like to know more about this ministry first, please write us and I will send one out to you.

“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

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.
