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.

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.

“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).

“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

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.
