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

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.

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - How Should We Then Live? (DVD)

Special Two-Disc Set!

After 40 years of intense study and world-wide ministry, Dr. Francis Schaeffer completed his crowning work of scholarship – to present profound truths in simple film language. Dr. Schaeffer’s brilliant analysis of the past and predictions for current trends have proven so uncannily accurate that this amazing series still feels contemporary almost three decades after its initial release. Ultimately, Schaeffer concludes that man’s only hope is a return to God’s Biblical absolute, the truth revealed in Christ through the Scriptures.

Available for the first time on DVD, this documentary spectacular also includes intimate in-depth conversations with Francis and Edith Schaeffer. With the on-disc study guide, this presentation forms a unique course of comprehensive study. While this series forms an innovative analysis of the past, this outstanding work is more than history. Each episode focuses on a significant era, yet speaks clearly to 21st-century man with answers for modern problems.

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.

Why Creeds and Confessions? (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 219 pages

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy

Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.

Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.

Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.

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

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism (DVD)

Download the Free Study Guide!

Just what is Calvinism?

Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?

This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.

Running Time: 257 minutes
