Civil lawsuit case against James Pendergraft, 7/24/2011

Plaintiff is awarded $36.7 million from notorious Florida abortionist

ORLANDO (FRI- 7/23/2011) — A Florida abortionist who frequently has run afoul of the law, James Scott Pendergraft, was in court all last week facing damaging testimony in the case of a baby born alive after a botched abortion.

A few years ago, I began to chronicle the numerous criminal activities and botched abortions that surround James Pendergraft’s chain of Florida abortion centers. Pendergraft is featured in the new DVD, The Abortion Matrix and more prominently in Abortion Clinic 911 Calls.

In 2007, pro-life evangelist Patte Smith and I put together a series of videos about Pendergraft. According to Patte, “Viable infants have been being killed by labor and delivery abortion each week at James Pendergraft’s abortion centers since 1996. Some of the babies have been born alive.”

In this clip from Abortion Clinic 911 Calls, Patte describes the type of labor and delivery abortion that often results in second and third trimester babies being born alive and left to die. Here the case that resulted in this lawsuit, is described.

Born alive from abortion and survived

Here is the story of one of the babies who survived an induction of labor abortion attempt at Orlando Women’s Center.

By Patte Smith

Her baby girl was born alive after she tried to abort her at Orlando Women’s Center

On November 15, 2001, 20-year-old single mother Carol Howard drove her white Chevy Malibu to Orlando Women’s Center to abortion her baby at 22.3 weeks gestation (a little more than halfway to her due date). She was pregnant for the third time. Along with a living child, Carol had already had aborted one baby previously. The counselor at the abortuary, Davella Clerveau, took Carol through the consent forms. Ms Clerveau made a note of Carol Howard’s reason for termination: “personal choice.”

The “informed consent to terminate pregnancy” form is three detailed pages, including many of the risks of abortion. Carol put her signature, or initial, on every page. One of the forms asked the question: “How do you feel about having an abortion?” Carol Howard circled: “scared,” “bad,” “sad” and “guilty.”

Another question was “What are your main concerns about the abortion today?” Carol circled: “That I’ll have complications” and “That I’ll be punished.” Carol also signed a document entitled, “Informed Consent for Induction of Labor,” among other forms. Carol wrote that she was referred to Orlando Women’s Center by Dr Wolford of Orlando. Davella explained what would be involved in aborting her living, viable baby. The method of abortion at this stage is induction of labor and delivery. If all went according to plan Carol Howard’s infant would be stillborn. Carol paid $1300 cash to have her infant murdered. All did not go according to plan.

Carol Howard was induced into labor at Orlando Women’s Center that day. According to her medication flow sheet 200mg of Cytotec were administered to Carol Howard every hour beginning at 1:30pm through midnight. At 1:30am clinic worker Tanya Severance noted in her chart: “1 am Patient was very upset about us not being able to give her pain meds. She left without signing release. Would not talk with us before leaving in a fit of temper…. She also thought this was taking way to long.”

Carol Howard left the Orlando Women’s Center in labor and ended up at Arnold Palmer Hospital. Her medical record from Orlando Women’s Center notes that OWC clinic worker Janet Ranier called ORMC’s ER to see if Carol Howard was there. Her medical record notes that Ms Ranier was advised “she was at Arnold Palmer in Labor & Delivery… Janet spoke with Linda Poole in Labor & delivery. Linda Poole says that at 4:35 am she was delivering.” That note was signed “TS” (clinic worker Tanya Severence, now deceased).

Carol Howard’s baby girl was born alive at Arnold Palmer hospital on November 16, 2001. She weighed 555 grams, which is 1 lb, 6 oz. Carol’s baby girl, identified only as “JH” in court documents, was given heroic medical treatment and she survived. Carol Howard had paid good cash money to have her baby murdered. She did not get what she paid for.

On May 25, 2004 a civil action was filed (Case 04CA-1202 Orange County, Florida) against abortionist Randall Whitney, James Scott Pendergraft & Orlando Women’s Center. The Plaintiff Douglas B Stalley, guardian de son tort of the property of JH, an incapacitated Minor. That minor is Carol Howard’s baby girl. She is 10 years old now. The suit is to provide funds for the lifetime care of JH, Carol’s daughter.

Carol Howard’s daughter “JH” suffered enormous physical problems as a result of being born too early. These are listed in court documents (but not limited to):

cerebral palsy
loss of function of left side of body
strokes/brain damage
physical, emotional & cognitive delays
lung damage & chronic lung disease &
seizure disorder

I have been told that this case is finally coming to trial in Orlando’s Orange County Court. The information I have is that the trial started today. Please pray that all of the details of this case become public. Pray that babies like little JH are protected in life and law.

“Absolutely Guilty!”

The civil lawsuit case concluded Friday, July 22, 2011. On Thursday, July 21st, all the jurors pronounced abortionist James Pendergraft “guilty” with the exception of the last juror who exclaimed, “Absolutely guilty!” The plaintiff was awarded over 18 million dollars to be paid into a trust that will be used for medical care for her daughter, while a smaller portion went to a fine. The next day, the punitive damages against abortionist James Pendergraft brought the total to $36.7 million.

This case has taken many years to come to trial. In the years since Pendergraft arrived in Florida, he has been incarcerated in federal prison for extortion and perjury and has had his license to practice medicine suspended four times by the Florida Department of Health. His chain of five abortion clinics in the state of Florida remains open. We pray that we may be seeing the beginning of the end of James Pendergraft’s reckless trail of terror.

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Download the free Study Guide!

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?

This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.

Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.

The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?

As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).

Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

The Silent Scream (DVD) Eight Languages

“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.

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.

“… a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Languages: English, Spanish, French, South Korean, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese

Frank Schaeffer Will You Please Shut Up! (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 200 pages

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.

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification

In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.

By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

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.
