Marketing the abortion industry

One provider markets her services in what some might call questionable ways

By Meredith Raney, Monday, May 13, 2002.

MELBOURNE, FL — Tammy Sobieski, the owner of several abortion clinics in Central Florida, markets her services in the phone book in some unique ways.

Playing games with the phonebook

Tammy has the standard yellow page ad in the phonebook, but additionally she lists names that are designed to fall alphabetically close to other organizations where women in crisis pregnancies might look for help. These names all point to Tammy’s phone number.

Who would fall for such cheap deception?

How about Florida’s Governor Jeb Bush? Right after Governor Bush was sworn into office in January of 1999, he decided to give away $675,000 in left over campaign funds to various charities that he supports. He supports Crisis Pregnancy Centers. He or one of his staff found a listing in the phone book for “Crisis Pregnancy Center of Central Florida.” Guess whose phone number is next to that listing —- Tammy Sobieski’s. Governor Bush ended up sending her a check for $10,000.

If Governor Bush and his staff can be this easily fooled, how many desperate women in a crisis pregnancy have been likewise fooled?

Give it back as a matter of honor — DeWayne Wickham, USA TODAY columnist

DeWayne Wickham, USA TODAY columnist, asked Tammy to give back the money as “a matter of honor” in his Feb. 2, 1999 column. How much honor is there among those who make a living tearing unborn babies apart? Someone should check to see if she ever gave it back. I seriously doubt it based on Tammy’s quote in DeWayne’s column, “. . . it’s not my job to make sure he had his facts straight.”

Examples from the Melbourne, FL Bellsouth phonebook (April 2002-03)

All listings below point to one of Tammy’s phone numbers, (800)432-8517, or (321)504-3114.

“Crisis Pregnancy Center of Central Florida” discussed above.
“Planned Families, Inc.” ends up alphabetically next to Planned Parenthood, a competing abortion provider.
“Pregnancy Counseling and Abortion Services Clinic” ends up alphabetically next to Pregnancy Resources, Inc., a legitimate crisis pregnancy center.
“Birth Control Center, Inc.” ends up alphabetically next to Birthright of Melbourne, a legitimate crisis pregnancy center.
“Women’s Health Center, Inc.” ends up alphabetically next to two Women’s Centers that do not do abortions.
“Abortion Center of Central Florida, Inc.” – stand-alone line listing in yellow pages under Abortion Services.

Active Corporate Names

The only corporate name of the ones Tammy uses above is “Birth Control Center, Inc.” according to the Florida Corporate Name web site. The others either don’t exist or have expired.

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.

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

Why Creeds and Confessions? (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 219 pages

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy

Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.

Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.

Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.
