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,

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.

The Silent Scream (DVD) Eight Languages

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981

Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House. More recently, it was by catching just a glimpse of what this film reveals that Planned Parenthood director and abortion advocate Abby Johnson turned and became a strong advocate for the pre-born.

The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.

“…a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Languages: English, Spanish, French, South Korean, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese

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.

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.

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
