To: [Addressee redacted to protect the source of this letter.]

I am writing to invite you to a regional briefing of law enforcement officials on the nature and pattern of violence and potential violence against reproductive health care providers, and the responses available to law enforcement in reducing such incidents. The briefing is scheduled for Friday, January 14, 2000, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the second floor Media Room of the United States Attorney’s Office, 99 N.E. 4th Street, Miami, Florida. Lunch will be offered for $5.00.

The Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (FACE) was signed into federal law in May 1994, following a long period of growing tension and violence at womens’ health clinics. Despite substantial progress, abortion clinic violence continues. The violence includes, shootings, arsons, bombings, butyric acid attacks, and anthrax threats.

This briefing is one of a number of such briefings being conducted nationwide , and follows the November 1998 creation of the National Task Force on Violence Against Health Care Providers by Attorney General Janet Reno. The briefing will include:

* Presentations by federal, state and local officials on investigating and prosecuting criminal and civil violations of FACE;

* Information on local and federal laws available to law enforcement (like trespassing, passing literature into cars, and doing business in the street and whatever else they can make up) for dealing with violent incidents against and harassment of reproductive health care providers;

* A review of security resources available to law enforcement(like putting up fences, and “no parking” signs everywhere and getting nearby businesses to sign trespassing affidavits. Click here for examples. )and clinics;

* A review by representatives of national organizations involved in clinic security (i.e., Sara Love, Legal Defense Director for the Feminist Majority Foundation)and local reproductive health clinics of current trends and patterns of violent activity in this region and throughout the country.

I encourage you to attend this briefing along with any other personnel you feel could benefit from this information. Also, I expect that clinics in this area will participate by sending key staff members and/or doctors (everyone but pro-lifers – what about equal protection under the law from our DOJ?)to exchange information about security issues. This briefing is designed to provide the most up-to-date information and resources available to assist you in addressing possible violence at reproductive health care clinics.

Please complete the attached confirmation form and mail or fax to Margarita Henry. Ms. Henry can be reached by telephone at 305-961-9056 and by fax at 305-530-7976. Reservations must be received by noon, January 12, 2000.

Very truly yours,

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.
