Abortionist William P. Egherman started butchering unborn children at Aware Woman in Melbourne, Florida in January of 1997. In the 17 months between March 29, 1997 and September 4, 1998, 5 women were sent or taken to the emergency room by abortionist Egherman. No disciplinary actions have been taken.
We are looking for ways to stop this slaughter of mothers as well as their children. The authorities at the State of Florida don’t seem to care. See the story of Carolina Gutierrez who died from a botched abortion in Miami. The State of Florida didn’t care about that one either. Complaints were filed in all of these cases.
This story starts on March 18, 1997, less than 3 months after abortionist Egherman started working at Aware Woman when we got a message on our answering machine from a young mother who had suffered a botched abortion at Aware Woman the previous January. She was responding to one of many letters that we sent to Aware Woman patients offering help with problems after abortion. (Note: These letters were mailed to the address provided from public records by the Florida Department of Transportation based on the license plate number of the vehicle that brought the patient to Aware Woman.) She did not identify herself but she is obviously hurting both physically and mentally. She is still pro-choice but wants us to “tell the girls that if this is something they want to do, then don’t go there (Aware Woman).” We are praying that she would contact us again and let us help her.
Above hear this message and see video of the ambulances and other emergency vehicles at Aware Woman as well as school children walking home from their bus stop while the sheriff’s bomb squad responds to a bomb threat.
On March 29, 1997, the first ambulance showed up at Aware Woman. The Aware Woman worker who made the 911 call asked for the ambulance to come with “no lights and no sirens.” It seems Aware Woman is more concerned about their own image than about the safety of their patients. This mother, Jane Roe II, suffered a perforated uterus and intestine. She spent a week in the hospital and was out of work for 6 weeks.
On July 4, 1997, (yes, they were butchering on Independence Day) the second ambulance showed up at Aware Woman. This mother was loaded into the ambulance with IV’s already in place. We have no further information on this mother.
On December 12, 1997, the third ambulance showed up at Aware Woman more than 45 minutes after abortionist Egherman had left for the day. A black mother in her mid thirties was taken away.
On January 31, 1998, about 7 pm, after dark, abortionist Egherman loaded the fourth patient into his own car and took her to the emergency room himself. He stayed less than 30 minutes and left her there. We know who this mother is but she is not willing to file a complaint against abortionist Egherman. This happens way too often and allows these butchers to continue their butchery. People who observed the events did file complaints about improper medical procedures but nothing was done about it.
On September 4, 1998, an ambulance showed up to take the fifth patient to the emergency room. This time, Aware Woman’s owner, Patricia Windle showed up at the emergency room with her lawyer, Roy Lucas, to make sure no one found out the mother’s identity to offer her real help.
That’s it – five emergency room visits in 17 months. How many more before somebody does something about it.

Who is the Real Jesus?
Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.
Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.
The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.
Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism
Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner
The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.
Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.
Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.

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)
