Letter From Imprisoned Abortionist James Pendergraft, 8/13/2001

By Editorial Staff
Published August 13, 2001

By Patte Smith

I stood on the sidewalk at 1103 Lucerne Terrace praying against the opening of the first late term in central Florida in 1996. James Scott Pendergraft had informed the city that he wanted to perform abortions through all three trimesters. When the Lord allowed Orlando Women’s Center to open in 1996, I sensed that He wanted me to stay to reach out to the aborting moms, companions, clinic workers and yes, even the abortionists. I had already been ministering outside all of the other murder mills in Orlando for three years.

A few years later as a result of a frivolous lawsuit he filed against the city of Ocala, Pendergraft was found guilty of conspiracy to commit extortion, lying under oath and mail fraud and sent to a federal penitentiary. I wrote to ask the abortionist to allow me to visit him. I wanted to share the gospel with the man.

Here is what the serial baby-killer wrote in response to my letter to him:

James S. Pendergraft
Reg # 42979-018
Federal Prison Camp Atlanta
PO Oox 150160
Lukewood Station, SE
Atlanta, Ga. 30315

Dear Patte,

God says to love thy neighbors as thyself and to love all people including your enemies. That in order to love people you must not have hatred. I go to sleep every night with love and peace in my heart. I hate no one. I look forward to getting out soon and continuing my mission of helping women in one of the most difficult times in their lives. No one will ever change that. I am more determined than ever to pursue my mission.

I see you more than enough when I pass you on the sidewalk of Orlando Women’s Center. If you would like to donate to my legal fees please talk with our security personnel. God bless you and take care.

Sincerely,
Dr Pendergraft

Perhaps this will help people to understand why I abhor the wishy-washy Christendom which makes everyone, including abortionists and aborting and post-abortive women, feels as if God loves them just the way they are … unrepentant, with no fear of God in their eyes. This is the devil’s business.

Sin is a devil dressed as an angel. ~ RC Sproul

Let niceties and relativism and humanism be flung to the dogs. Let churchianity and comfort in sin be confessed and forsaken. Silence kills babies. Abortion is the devil’s business and the church is complicit by her silence and her tolerance. We should be ashamed and repent.

… as for murderers … their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. ~ Revelation 21:8

Your comments are welcome!

I couldn’t have said it better myself. We waste precious energy thinking it is in our power to “save” these aborters; that’s God’s job. Our job is to warn them in no uncertain terms that they will reap as they have sown. Our job is to “rescue those [unjustly] sent to slaughter,” even when that means placing ourselves and other complicit parties at risk.

Is this man a type of serial killer that needs absolute power over babies to get a ‘high?’ His habit of shoving women out of the door with a tiny corpse inside belies his statement that he wants to help them.

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

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 Beast of Revelation IdentifiedThe Beast of Revelation: Identified (DVD)

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?

Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!

Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.

Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)

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.
