Here are reports from Orlando, Florida on the effectiveness of residential pickets. One Orlando child killer, Vera Stefanac, “officially retired from doing abortions,” according to a clinic worker, shortly after two pickets at her place of residence and Ob/Gyn office.
What is residential picketing? It’s a “catch-all” term that encompasses a variety of activities done at or near the home residence of an abortionist. Usually, it takes the form of a “neighborhood alert.” Considering that these men and women make their living destroying the lives of babies, it’s most often done for the purposes of alerting the neighborhood to keep their children away from such a monster. There’s also the side effect of making sure neighbors know who exactly is living nearby – and how they came to afford their residence (abortionists usually live in decent neighborhoods) – not by the same hard work and honest day’s pay that most people do, but by the exploitation of hurting women and the destruction of innocent life. In many cases, we also alert the neighborhood to the various law violations that most abortionists are involved in: lawsuits, criminal cases, medical malpractice complaints, and so forth.
Pro-life picket at abortionist Vera Stefanac’s residence on 1/15/2011
MOUNT DORA, FL – Thirteen street evangelists showed up at child killer Vera Stefanac’s residence, 3018 New Haven Place, Mount Dora, FL 32757, on January 15th, 2011. We arrived soon after 1 pm and closed in prayer at exactly 3 pm.
After about one hour, the police were called and one showed up. The officer first talked with the people at the front gate who called and then came over to us. Less than five minutes later there was an accident right in front of our eyes and the cop had to leave for a while. He came back with another police officer and told us to stand closer to the street. After that they talked some more and left.
Vera was at EPOC abortuary in Orlando killing babies while we were picketing her neighborhood. But apparently, someone called EPOC and left a message on their phone stating that she thought Vera would want to know there were a bunch of protestors outside her community with aborted baby signs. :-)
Some people honked and waved and one lady even turned around and came back and told us what an encouragement we were to her. Another man stopped and said he agreed with what we were doing. One girl put her hand up to shield her face when she turned in so as not to see our aborted baby sign. Overall, the response of the motorists and residents was overwhelmingly positive.
Pro-life picket at abortionist Vera Stefanac’s office on 2/12/2011
EUSTIS, FL – At the second picket, we had 30 people throughout the two hours. A local Crisis Pregnancy Center sent some of their people out. The picket was at Vera Stefanac’s Dimensions Medical PA, 2755 South Bay Street, Suite E, Eustis, Florida. Vera also performs abortions at several of James Pendergraft’s clinics.
A team from a local crisis pregnancy center, Life Choices of Lake County, about two miles away, found out about this one hour before we came and joined with us.
We also were greeted by Pastor Cassian Dunlop who is a priest at The Antiochian Orthodox Church just a few buildings over from the abortionist’s new office in Eustis. He seemed concerned that an abortionist had set up shop so close to his church.
We prayed that Vera would repent or have her business shut down. We also prayed that more of God’s people in “God’s country” will arise and confront child killing. A few weeks later, Vera Stefanac “officially retired from doing abortions,” according to a abortion clinic worker.
Pro-life picket of abortionist Scott Spagnolo-Hye’s residence on 3/19/2011
LEESBURG, FL – Scott Spagnolo-Hye, a much younger killer, has talked to some of the sidewalk ministry team at Orlando Women’s Center about quitting too. A residential picket’s purpose is to encourage abortionists to repent and receive God’s forgiveness or simply to quit.
