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.

“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.

“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).
