Ralph Bundy, The Abortion Clinic Doctor

By Editorial Staff
Published September 15, 1999

By Kate Santich Of the Sentinel Staff

Most doctors who perform abortions don’t say so publicly.

Fewer still consent to media interviews.

And it is nothing short of extraordinary for one to lend his face to the cover of a magazine labeling him: “The Abortion Doctor,” as the Florida magazine headline read on May 13, 1990.

But Dr. Ralph Bundy says he has no regrets. He is, in fact, as outspoken as ever.

“People think this is just about abortion, but it’s not. It’s the whole morality-control thing: You can’t watch The Last Temptation of Christ, the video-rental store is being told which movies it can stock, and they’re trying to dictate to Wal-Mart the magazines it can sell. It’s a matter of what you’re willing to lie down for and let them do to you.”

Bundy, medical director of The Women’s Health Center Inc. in Orlando and Daytona Beach, got a lot of mail for the first few weeks after the story ran -maybe 20 or 30 letters, he says, running 3-or 4-to-1 in his favor – and he still gets new patients who seek him out because they’ve read about him.

His colleagues expressed surprise. His friends, with one exception, expressed support.

“I did lose one really good friend that I’d had for 20 years,” he says. “She sent me a couple of books, and the message – both from the books and from her – was that I was going to burn in hell. She pretty much blew me off.’‘

Many of his friends didn’t know precisely what he did for a living. He had told them only that he worked in a clinic.

“I don’t hit people over the head with it,” he says. ‘‘I don’t go to a party and say, ‘Boy, I did a tough abortion today.’‘’

There have been no militant anti-abortion protests outside Bundy’s clinics in the 16 months since the story ran, but lately he has witnessed a rise in small prayer groups.

“They sit or stand in front of the clinic and pray, or at least that’s what they say they’re doing,” Bundy says.

“They don’t directly harass the clients . . . and they’re not screaming or chanting, though they occasionally carry signs.”

They come once a week or so, with usually four to 10 people at a time.

Bundy thinks anti-abortion fervor has subsided – given the Florida Supreme Court ruling affirming a constitutional right to privacy and the retention of Chief Justice Leander Shaw, who wrote that opinion.

He cites national polls that show people largely disapprove of the tactics employed by such anti-abortion groups as Operation Rescue.

“They’re going way too far,” he says. “I think, ultimately, their actions will have a negative effect on support for the religious right.”

Still, Bundy gets letters warning him that he has a made an enemy of God.

Bundy answers now as he always has.

“Well,” he says, “most of the people I admire are in, or are going to, hell. And I look forward to joining them.”

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.

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.

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.

The Beast of Revelation IdentifiedThe Beast of Revelation: Identified (DVD)

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)
