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,

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)

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?
This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.
Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.
The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?
As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).
Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

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.”

“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.
