Orlando Woman Fills Trade Post

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.

A legacy of care, controversy

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.

Planned Personhood

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 #$%^&.”

Pro-life picket of Planned Parenthood CEO Susan Idtensohn’s residence – 7/18/2011

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.

Pro-life picket of Planned Parenthood CEO Susan Idtensohn’s residence – 10/29/2011

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.”

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

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!

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.

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.
