FORCED ABORTIONS NOW FELONIES
LEHIGH ACRES, FL — Many – perhaps most – of the abortions done today in the United States were felonies under federal law. “Now, forced abortions are no longer lawful in this country,” said Jean Sapp, Director of the Counselor Corps, of Lehigh Acres, Florida, an organization which trains peaceful counselors to offer help to pregnant women at abortion clinics.
“The criminalization of forced abortions is part of a recent decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals in Atlanta in the case of Jane Roe II v. Aware Woman Center For Choice, which dealt with the legal consequences of an unwanted abortion”, continued Mrs. Sapp. “It is now a felony punishable by 10 years in federal prison.”
“The Roe II case was brought to enforce the federal act called F.A.C.E., which initially was used only to stop threats against women intended to prevent them from obtaining abortions.
“The federal appeals court has ruled recently that F.A.C.E. can be used to protect women who do not want to get abortions. This ruling will ultimately shield millions of victims from the horror of forced abortion.
It will also provide a beacon of hope to women in other nations which have authorized abortions but provided no legal protection to those women who have chosen to say ‘No’ to abortions demanded by boyfriends or husbands.
“The United States has condemned forced abortion in other countries, and rightly so. I am most pleased that we now realize that it is an everyday event in our own country. I am even more pleased that decisive action can now be taken against this awful, degrading violation of women,” said Dr. Patricia McEwen, speaking for Life Coalition International, headquartered in Melbourne, Florida.
The Women’s Legal Action Coalition, a pro-life group also in Melbourne, Florida, is enthusiastic about the ruling. Said spokesperson Meredith Raney, “For the first time ever, there is common ground with N.O.W. and the Feminist Majority; we can all work together to prevent these heinous crimes against women.”
According to Michael Hirsh of Kennesaw, Georgia, lead attorney on the Roe II lawsuit, “This is the first time that any abortions have been outlawed by the federal government in the United States.”

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

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)
