MELBOURNE, FL – Saturday, December 4, 1999 — A violation of the federal FACE law occurred today against Nancy Lally, a FACE-protected pro-life referral counselor, at the reproductive health service facility (aka abortion clinic) in Suntree Plaza known as WomanCare of Melbourne, Inc. This federal violation was reported to Louis Freeh, Director of the FBI.
This morning, 12/4/99, I was on the public sidewalk along Wickham Road at the northwest corner of Suntree Plaza. Suntree Plaza is a multi-business mall (about 10 businesses) open to the public, located in the northeast corner of the intersection of N. Wickham Road and St. Andrews Blvd. in the Suntree area of Brevard County north of Melbourne, Florida. One of the businesses in Suntree Plaza is the reproductive health service facility (abortion clinic) named WomanCare of Melbourne, Inc.
A little after 8 a.m. four clinic workers arrived and went inside. They were Jill Vogel, Lisa Sanford, Tiffany Alfieri, and a new worker whose name I do not know. About the same time, two women arrived separately and tried to enter the building. The door appeared to be locked and they could not get in. It appeared that they were early for their appointments so they sat down to wait on a bench that was located beside the door.
At about 8:25 a.m. I called Nancy, who I knew was at the southeast entrance to Suntree Plaza and out of view of the women on the bench, on my cell phone to tell her that the women were waiting outside. Nancy decided to provide reproductive health service referral information and counseling to the women.
Nancy walked up to the women and handed them the information. They accepted the literature. From where I was I could not hear what was said but I could clearly see what happened. Almost immediately Lisa Sanford came out and interfered with Nancy’s counseling by physically grabbing the literature from the women’s hands, physically getting between Nancy and the women, and escorting the women inside and closing the door. Nancy then left.
In my opinion this was a clear violation of Paragraph (a)(1) of 18 USC § 248 (FACE) which reads in part: “Prohibited Activities — Whoever — (1) by force … or by physical obstruction, intentionally … interferes with … any person because that person is … providing reproductive health services; … shall be subject to the penalties provided in subsection (b) and the civil remedies provided in subsection © …”
At about 8:50 a.m., the first of four Brevard County Sheriff’s Department patrol cars showed up. The first deputy sheriff went inside the abortion clinic. The others just hung around the plaza for most of the rest of the morning. I left about 11 a.m.
Nancy Lally reported this violation to Louis Freeh, Director of the FBI. All incidents of this type should be reported to the FBI in writing by Priority Mail. The address is:
Mr. Louis Freeh
Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation

“Give me liberty or give me death!”
Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.
The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).

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.

After 40 years of intense study and world-wide ministry, Dr. Francis Schaeffer completed his crowning work of scholarship – to present profound truths in simple film language. Dr. Schaeffer’s brilliant analysis of the past and predictions for current trends have proven so uncannily accurate that this amazing series still feels contemporary almost three decades after its initial release. Ultimately, Schaeffer concludes that man’s only hope is a return to God’s Biblical absolute, the truth revealed in Christ through the Scriptures.
Available for the first time on DVD, this documentary spectacular also includes intimate in-depth conversations with Francis and Edith Schaeffer. With the on-disc study guide, this presentation forms a unique course of comprehensive study. While this series forms an innovative analysis of the past, this outstanding work is more than history. Each episode focuses on a significant era, yet speaks clearly to 21st-century man with answers for modern problems.

Who is the Real Jesus?
Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.
Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.
The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.
Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.
Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!
