Idtensohn Brings International Experience To Job
June 26, 1992 | By Jerry Jackson Of The Sentinel Staff
The state Commerce Department this week hired an Orlando businesswoman to head the Division of International Trade and Development in Tallahassee. Susan R. Idtensohn, 46, replaces veteran director Tom Slattery, who is transferring to the division’s office in Brussels, Belgium. Idtensohn is the former executive director of a management training institute in Singapore, an island nation south of Malaysia.
As president of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando, Sue Idtensohn is a tireless champion for women’s health issues.
July 13, 2005 | By Jean Patteson, Sentinel Staff Writer
Even those who love her the most call Sue Idtensohn blunt, stubborn, relentless. But they mean it in the nicest way. Idtensohn — wife, mother and president/CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando — is, by all accounts, a determined woman … Idtensohn is a tall woman with a head of close-cropped blond curls, a brisk manner and a hearty laugh.
The Orlando Weekly | By Billy Manes
Idtensohn says there’s been a necessary sea change in the way that Planned Parenthood presents itself. After years of trying to distance the organization from the “A” word … it’s now an imperative that the group owns it.
“I think we’re at a real watershed here,” she says. “I think that these kinds of issues are going to pop up. The opposition is really good at messaging, just like Republicans. And we react; we are not proactive.” She points sheepishly at a recent rebranding exercise in which the new tagline for Planned Parenthood is “We’re here,” only half-jokingly adding that it should read, “We’re #$%^&.”
TITUSVILLE, FL – This was the first residential picket footage of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando CEO Susan Idtensohn’s neighborhood on Monday, July 18th, 2011. Idtensohn is the outspoken director of an abortion mill in the heart of the African American community near downtown Orlando. She lives in a lovely, spacious house about 45 minutes away on the Indian River Lagoon overlooking the Kennedy Space Center launch pad.
One police officer knocked on Sue’s door and talked to a neighbor. They left almost immediately after that without talking to us. A reporter for Florida Today came by and wrote a fairly balanced piece on the picket.
In the Florida Today report, Pastor Mark Holick said, “We are here to let the neighborhood and the town know” about Idtensohn’s position with Planned Parenthood, Holick said, discussing the Titusville protest. He said he wants people to “pray for her,” in hopes that she repents.
Idtensohn objected to the picketer’s method of free speech calling it, “confrontational and inflammatory…. We believe in people’s ability to make decisions and have choices.”
We pray that Susan one day will understand the irony of her statement. Susan believes in the “choice” to kill a baby through all nine months of pregnancy for any reason, but does not believe in the right to life for unborn children or the right of Christians to proclaim the Gospel peacefully on public property.
TITUSVILLE, FL (FR) – This was the second residential picket of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando CEO Susan Idtensohn’s neighborhood on Saturday, October 29th, 2011. Idtensohn is the outspoken director of an abortion mill in the heart of the black community near downtown Orlando. She lives in a lovely, spacious house about 45 minutes away on the Indian River Lagoon overlooking the Kennedy Space Center launch pad.
The first Awareness Campaign in Idtensohn’s community was on July 19th 2011.
Peaceful pickets of abortionist’s neighborhoods follow the law and provide a good model of concerned citizens using their first amendment rights to speech, press, assembly, religion and petition.
The highlight of this most recent awareness campaign and picket was the dialog and debate between long-time Melbourne-area pro-life evangelist Frank Campana and a neighbor who spouted every pro-abort cliché in the book. While Campana’s response was boisterous, this contender ironically caused the biggest disturbance to the neighborhood in contrast to the peaceful singing, picketing and praying of 33 Christians on this beautiful fall afternoon from 4 to 6 pm.
The effect of an Awareness Campaign is always to divide the community with strong reactions on either side.
We also met a Jewish Rabbi and his wife who stopped his car and thanked us for what we were doing. His wife took pictures of the procession as Lisa Campana spoke with them.
John Barros and Amber Carroll went door to door and talked to Sue’s neighbors. One of her neighbors who lives directly across the street said that they are Christians and had lived there for many years. They had no idea that Sue kill babies for a living. They said that the Idtensohns seemed like such “nice” people. This happens at every neighborhood awareness event. It is always touching to me to see the hurt looks on Christians’ faces when they realize their neighbor is a baby killer. We tell them to pray for their conversion and true repentance. We ask them to share the love of Jesus.
We heard last summer that Idtensohn was selling her home and planned to move out of state. Some might ask: If she is moving in the near future, was it still an effective picket?
Here is a clip from an article in Orlando Weekly from 2006 that answers that question.
PPGO’s capital campaign continues, with the count currently at $1.9 million — and none of that money has come through federal funding. The funds will be used to open a much-needed facility in Brevard County. After that, it’s on to Osceola and Seminole.
Yes, Planned Parenthood of Orlando, even after Idtensohn’s departure, has plans to open up abortion “super centers” on the Space Coast and throughout central Florida. We also know abortionist James Pendergraft would like to open late term killing places in Cocoa, Florida and elsewhere. But dedicated, gentle Christians will be coming to their communities and preaching the Word of God — that child murder is an abomination that brings a curse on our land.
Of course, articles in the pro-abortion media featuring Sue Idtensohn as a “family planning advocate” never mention the word “abortion.” The lasting legacy for Sue Idtensohn will be that people will remember them not as crusaders for women’s rights, but as child murderers.
Every abortionist, clinic owner and worker in central Florida will have a legacy written in the blood of the innocents. Eventually, no one will desire that legacy, either due to the gift of repentance or simply the shame that comes through having their bloody deeds of darkness exposed. This will come as Christians obey the Ephesians 5:11 mandate: “Have nothing to do with the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.”

“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.

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.

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).

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.
