First All-Black Rescue in Michigan

By Editorial Staff
Published March 1, 1989

LANSING, MI (FR) – Sending another clear signal that Americans are rejecting the Roe Vs. Wade decision, a group of blacks in Lansing, Michigan, conducted the first all-black pro-life rescue in February of this year. Ten blacks were arrested for sitting in the packed waiting room of Womancare Clinic while chained together with kryptonite locks. Each of the rescue participants were charged with unlawful assembly and ordered to pay a $50 fine.

The rescue was organized by a former police officer, Greg Keath. Another organizer, Rev. Van Gayton of Mt. Zion Christian Assembly, New York, said the Lansing rescue was the start of an ongoing recruitment effort to get blacks involved in the pro-life movement. “According to the Department of Health and Human Services, 43 percent of the babies aborted are black,” said Rev. Gayton. “We want to motivate blacks across the nation to get involved, since the majority of blacks are pro-life.” Gayton was arrested in Atlanta for participating in a major rescue, and has been involved with the movement since last September.

Gayton explained that the abortion issue was a civil rights issue because of the similarity between the woman’s right to her own body and the plantation owner’s right to do what he wanted to do with his slave – a question in the Dred Scott slavery decision. During the rescue, which took place on February 25, Keath told reporters, “We as black women and men are here today to refute and to reject the recent stance of Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, etc. regarding rescue demonstrations not being morally connected to the civil rights movement of the ’60s and that our protests are trying to deny Americans their constitutional rights to freedom of choice.

“We state that there is a definite connection between the two, for just as Dred Scott declared our ancestors non-persons, and therefore devoid of rights under the law, so Roe vs. Wade has declared our children non-persons and stripped them of their constitutional rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

“One of our main goals is to expose Planned Parenthood because (it’s founder) Margaret Sanger was a eugenist who believed that minority races should be eliminated. She had a negro project and had ministers and prominent blacks involved so she could penetrate the black community,” he said. “Most of the major clinics today are in inner cities.”

The Lansing rescue is likely to generate interest among black pro-life groups throughout the nation. Operation Rescue, the umbrella organization spearheading the national rescue movement, conducts non-violent sit-ins similar to those conducted by blacks during the civil rights demonstrations of the 1960s.

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism (DVD)

Download the Free Study Guide!

Just what is Calvinism?

Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?

This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.

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.

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Download the free Study Guide!

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?

This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.

Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.

The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?

As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).

Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

Ten parts, over three hours of instruction!

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan
