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.

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

The United States of America 2.0: The Great Reset (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 40 pages of dynamite!

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).

In The Days of These Kings (Book)

Perfect-bound Paperback — 740 pages

The Book of Daniel in Preterist Perspective

“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever” (Daniel 2:44).

The overarching message of Daniel is that Jesus the Messiah is even now ruling over the nations. He is the King of kings. Daniel tells us that Messiah’s kingdom will advance in the whole world from “generation to generation” (Daniel 4:4,34). Christ’s dominion is “given to the people of the saints of the most High” (Daniel 7:22). Our purpose then is to see “all people, nations, and languages … serve and obey him” (Daniel 7:14,27).

This comprehensive work offers a fascinating look at the book of Daniel in preterist perspective. Great attention is paid to the writings of ancient and modern historians and scholars to connect the dots and demonstrate the continuity of Daniel’s prophecy with all of Scripture.

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
