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.”

“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).

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.”

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!
Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.
Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.
