MELBOURNE, FL — The month of January has produced a double slam against pregnant mothers who choose to use abortion facilities. First, on January 3rd, A federal judge ruled that Jane Roe II, the fictitious name of a mother who was violently butchered while being held against her will at the Aware Woman abortion clinic, cannot sue Aware Woman anonymously. Secondly, on January 12th, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously declared the Drivers’ Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) constitutional after the 4th Circuit had declared it unconstitutional.
The first ruling means that Jane Roe II must put her real name on the complaint and subject herself to public embarrassment in order to continue the lawsuit. This decision seems to contradict the U. S. Supreme Court that allowed Norma McCorvey to sue anonymously as Jane Roe when she was seeking an abortion in the famous 1973 Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion in this country. The plaintiff in the companion case, Doe v. Bolton, was Sandra Cano who was allowed to use the fictitious name, Mary Doe.
Had the second ruling (DPPA constitutional) been in effect in 1997 when Jane Roe II suffered her damages, she would not be in court today. Local pro-lifers were able to contact her through her license plate information and offer her help after she suffered a perforated uterus and intestine and the trauma of being violently held on the operating table against her will at Aware Woman abortion clinic.
Almost everything was working against the pro-lifers in trying to get help to this poor woman that they saw being carried away from the abortion clinic in an ambulance. The ambulance company wouldn’t give any information, the hospital wouldn’t give any information (in fact the hospital treated her under a fictitious name). The only way that pro-lifers were able to contact and help her was through her license plate. Now, according to the U. S. Supreme Court, that capability is gone.
The abortion industry has had an open season on unborn babies since the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions in 1973. This new ruling gives them an open season on the mothers as well. Most mothers damaged by “safe” legal abortion just suffer silently and in shame — too ashamed to admit that they have killed their own child — no matter how bad they have been hurt. Apparently family members of mothers who die are also too ashamed to go to court as well. See Maureen Tyke and Carolina Gutierrez neither of whose deaths from abortion resulted in any court actions. Now, even the brave ones like Jane Roe II will not come forward to sue if they have to let the whole world know that they had an abortion. The abortion industry can now be as sloppy as they want in doing abortions with little fear that they will ever be sued.
What about the “right to privacy” discovered in the Constitution by the “Roe v Wade” court? Why doesn’t that “right to privacy” extend to the legal proceedings associated with damages incurred when utilizing the right (to abort) granted by that same “right to privacy?” Are we being consistent here? Is justice being served? Of course not!
Where is the National Organization for Women (NOW) and other feminist organizations? They should be outraged at this ruling. Women have a right to privacy to have an abortion but no right to privacy to sue if damaged by that abortion. If these feminist groups don’t scream bloody murder over this ruling, they will just confirm what many people have been saying all along — that they really don’t care about women, they just care about maximizing the number of abortions.
According to her complaint, Jane Roe, II, suffered a perforated uterus and colon laceration while undergoing an abortion at Aware Woman abortion clinic on March 29, 1997. She tried to leave to get help at another facility, but was held on the operating table by four employees against her will. After desperate struggling and very loud vocal demands, Jane Roe, II was able to get Lisa Sanford, the director of Aware Woman to call 911 for an ambulance. The 911 tape records Lisa asking for an ambulance with “no lights and no sirens” indicating more concern for the reputation of Aware Woman that the safety of Jane Roe II. Lisa obviously didn’t want attention drawn to the fact that an ambulance was at Aware Woman to pick up a mother who had undergone one of their “safe” legal abortions.
Jane Roe, II was in the hospital for a week and out of work for 6 weeks. She still doesn’t know if she will ever be able to have any more children.
William Egherman, the abortionist who butchered Jane Roe II, is a Planned Parenthood (PP) REJECT. He was fired by Planned Parenthood in Cincinnati. He has since sued PP alleging firing without cause. After Egherman started working at Aware Woman, he sent 5 women directly to the emergency room in a 17 month period. (The first of the 5 was Jane Roe II.) Maybe Planned Parenthood did have cause.
Abortionist Egherman, in his objection to Jane Roe II proceeding anonymously , pointed out that:Courts have held that information pertaining to mental illness, homosexuality, and transsexuality is considered information of the utmost intimacy. . . . It is because of the social stigma attached to the aforementioned positions and/or situations that courts find they are meritorious of anonymity.
Abortionist Egherman continues in the same pleading to say that the social stigma of killing one’s own child doesn’t rate the same protection from the court — and now the court agrees.
REFERENCESRoe II v. Aware Woman Other Aware Woman lawsuits Video of ambulances at Aware Woman overlaid with 911 calls. Jane Roe II’s 911 call is the one where Lisa Sanford, Aware Woman’s clinic director asks the 911 operator to send the ambulance with “no lights and no sirens.” Is Lisa concerned about Jane Roe II’s well-being or is she just concerned that the whole neighborhood might become aware that an ambulance is picking up a mom at Aware Woman.

“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.

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.
