Dr. Gostal Arcelin resigned in a letter to Christians For Life, a pro-life group in Melbourne, Florida, that organized a peaceful, one-day, 12-person picketing excursion.

Abortionist Gostal Arcelin quits

Gostal Arcelin, a resident at the University of Florida Health Science Center in Jacksonville and abortionist at Aware Woman Center for Choice in Melbourne, FL, announced that he will stop performing abortions at Melbourne’s only abortion clinic as of April 1, 1996.

The announcement was made in a March 15, 1996 letter to Christians For Life, a Melbourne pro-life group that held an informational picket on March 14, 1996, at the University Medical Center in Jacksonville where Dr. Arcelin works and in his neighborhood in Neptune Beach, FL, a suburb of Jacksonville.

“We pray that Dr. Arcelin will now commit to using his God-given talents only for healing and never for killing for the rest of his young career,” said Meredith Raney, a spokesman for Christians For Life.

The entire text of the letter follows:

Raymond Unterburger
Christians For Life
P.O. Box 2022
Melbourne, FL 32902

Dear Mr. Unterburger,

I will no longer provide medical services at the Aware Woman Center for Choice as of April 1, 1996. Please inform your associates. Understand that I am proud of being able to provide reproductive services for women of all ages, and that my activities were known amongst my colleagues, friends, and neighbors.

Please be aware that Aware Woman Center for Choice clinic and other physicians may elect to pursue anonymity for security purposes. Again, I must emphasize that as of April 1, 1996, I will stop coming to Melbourne for reproductive health services.



Gostal Arcelin, M. D.

Affidavit of Defendant Patricia Baird-Windle

Abortion clinic owner claims that Dr. Gostal Arcelin resigned due to “harassment.”

Florida abortionist calls it quits
Jacksonville FL – AP, March 17, 1996

He’s only 28 years old and wants to live a long life. Abortionist (Ret.) Gostal Arcelin was disturbed by citizens picketing outside his Neptune Beach home and decided to cease from his practice of driving to Melbourne to commit abortions. The Ob-Gyn resident at University Medical Center faxed a one-page letter to Christians for Life in Melbourne with the good news. A University spokeswoman “said he told her he was quitting the Melbourne work because he was concerned for his safety.”

Three abortion doctors quit

Aware Woman can’t find another doctor to replace Dr. Gostal Arcelin and three other residents from the University of Florida Hospital in Jacksonville who had been coming on Saturday. Dr. Arcelin resigned in a letter to Christians For Life effective April 1, 1996 after only one day of picketing at his hospital and neighborhood. Christians For Life, a pro-life group in Melbourne, Florida organized a peaceful, one-day, 12-person picketing excursion that triggered all of this.

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.

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

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.
