Taxpayers pay for security fence at abortion clinic

By Meredith Raney
Published December 24, 1999

MELBOURNE, FL — Brevard County taxpayers paid about $4,000 to put up an 8-foot chain-link security fence at WomanCare of Melbourne, the new abortion clinic in Suntree Plaza north of Melbourne. Jack Parker, Public Safety Officer of Brevard County (321-633-2056) said that the fence was put up for security reasons at the request of Commander Joe Crosby (321-633-2123) of Brevard County Sheriff Phil Williams’ Office. The $4,000 cost figure was Jack Parker’s guess.

Who’s kidding who?

The fence was supposedly put up to protect the fire department next door according to Jack Parker. However, the fence is 15 feet from two sides of the abortion clinic and 100 feet from the fire station.

“Who’s kidding who?” said Meredith Raney, Spokesman for Christians For Life, “Take a look at this picture. The building behind the fence is the abortion mill. The fire department is at least 100 feet the other way.” Thanks to FLORIDA TODAY newspaper for this picture that was taken 12/21/99. Pro-lifers can’t go back there to take such a picture without fear of being arrested. A pro-lifer might show some abortion-minded mom how to solve her problems without killing her own child. Certain people in Brevard County administration will not stand for that! To them, no expense is to be spared in helping that abortion mill kill as many children as possible.

Parking for pro-lifers scarce in Suntree

All of the businesses in Suntree Plaza have signed trespass affidavits that allow Brevard County Sheriff Phil Williams “to issue trespass warnings to any persons found on said property who are engaged in suspicious or unlawful activities or who are otherwise loitering on said property.” Sheriff Williams has interpreted this to mean anyone picketing or counseling on the public property around Suntree Plaza, anyone associating with those picketing or counseling, or anyone who looks like they might be pro-life, i.e., carrying a Bible.

See pictures below for the BEFORE and AFTER of the small area where pro-lifers WERE allowed to park. The fence now prevents pro-lifers from parking where they had been parking since August 1999 when the abortion mill moved to its present location.

BEFORE – Pro-life parking from August to December 1999. Note the fire station in far background. Use the three red markers for point of reference. AFTER – Fence put up December 1999, paid for by Brevard County taxpayers to prevent pro-life parking.

Sign that allowed small pro-life parking area “fixed” 12/23/99

In August, 1999, a new abortion clinic moved into Suntree Plaza. “Coincidentally,” the county immediately put up “no parking” signs all around the Suntree area in the vicinty of the new abortion clinic. They missed a small spot on the south side of St. Andrews Blvd near Wickham Road that allowed for parking of about 3 cars. On 12/23/99, the day after they put up the fence around the abortion clinic, that sign was “fixed.” See below.

BEFORE – Picture taken 12/22/99. See below for enlarged view of sign BEFORE the “fix.” AFTER – Picture taken 12/24/99. See below for enlarged view of sign AFTER the “fix.”

Thank you Brevard County for providing some public parking

When the county put up the fence mentioned above, they were considerate enough to provide some public parking on fire department property that is available to be used for parking by the public from 8:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. according to signs posted on the new fence. Brevard County Commissioner Helen Voltz was assured by the county attorney’s office that any public property made available to the public would be accessible to ALL of the public. The pro-life community thanks the county for making this property available to ALL of the public, even pro-lifers. See picture below. All of the cars shown below are parked in a public parking area on fire department property.

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.

Freedom: The Model of Christian Liberty (DVD)

“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).

Welcome to the Second American Revolution!

This DVD features “Liberty: The Model of Christian Liberty” along with “Dawn’s Early Light: A Brief History of America’s Christian Foundations.” Bonus features include a humorous but instructive collection of campaign ads and Eric Holmberg’s controversial YouTube challenge concerning Mitt Romney’s campaign for president.

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)

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).

Frank Schaeffer Will You Please Shut Up! (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 200 pages

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism

Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner

The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.

Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.

Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.
