ORLANDO, FL – We’ve all been shocked by the recent slew of abandoned babies. How could a mother, even a 13 year old mother, put her infant out with the trash? Isn’t this a violation of the natural order which normally portrays the mother as fierce protector of her young?
Let me tell you about “Little Mary.” At almost 5 months of pregnancy her mother made a “choice.” Little Mary was murdered by local abortionist James Scott Pendergraft on November 5, 1999 at 21 weeks gestation. Her dead body was delivered at Orlando Women’s Center abortion clinic on November 6, 1999.
Little Mary’s father didn’t want the abortion. He named her Little Mary and talked the clinic staff into letting him take the attached photograph of her inside the clinic. He asked that I use it to honor his daughter’s short life by telling her story.
What shall we do to honor the memory of Little Mary? What shall we do to honor Jesus?
Our desire is to reach every single woman, man and teenager who walks the threshold between life and death at Orlando’s five abortion clinics. We need your help. Jesus has commissioned us with the ministry of reconciliation. Come with us as an ambassador of Christ as we implore the ones who enter the doors of the abortion clinic.
