4th Quarter reports
32 Years of Unabated Child-Killing
Reporting from the Killing Fields of Granite City, IL
Death Toll December 27, 2004 - Jan. 1, 2005
Monday- 30 killed: IN, KY, MO, IL. 2 saves (Illinois couple & young Missouri mother). Bag ‘n tagged approximately 90 babies from past week's carnage.
Tuesday- 48 killed: IN2 , SD, MO, IL. Thirteen proclaimers cared enough to be their brother's keeper and stood in the gap as young mothers and accomplices looked out the extermination camp windows mocking the Gospel and making obscene gestures to the watchmen on the wall.
Wednesday- 32 killed: MO, IL. 1 save -black mother chose life this day.
Thursday- approximately 28 killed, midnite abortions: IN, MO, IL. Assembly-line destruction of the American family was well underway as mothers and grandmothers marched their future generations inside this American Family extermination Center. One irate grandmother was upset the lifesavers would point out that the flag on her pickup truck was hypocritical as she supports the barbaric death of her future American grandchild. Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness, echoed. The first inalienable right, is life. Without it, how can you enjoy the other two? These are the truths on which our Nation was founded in 1776.
Friday- New Year's Eve -open. No abortionist. Ryan Goski lost his slurpie job at Weather Vane Ice Cream Shop and now he's making slurpies at Hope abortion Clinic as their chief bag and tagger, with what's left of the babies. We noticed him "dumpster diving" through the Hope(less) garbage dumpster this morning along side the alley.
A few post-abortive mothers came for their post-mortem check-ups. A remnant stood at these gates witnessing to all who passed through the Good News, as we ended a bloody year with the casualty count of approximately 10,685 murdered at the hands of two serial-killers, Yogendra Shah and felon Alan Palmer. 337 saved, 3 adoptions, and 12 salvations in 2004.
Saturday- New Year's Day –Closed
In total, 138 babies were killed this week, 4 were saved. A total of 1179 saved since January 2000 with 17 babies being adopted!
A society is critiqued by how it treats its most innocent or helpless individuals living within its jurisdiction. Women and children are generally considered to be the weakest physically, among mankind. Honorable people will always strive to keep them out of harm's way. The elderly and infirm will come next on the list needing assistance. The Bible is our reference when it comes to pointing out that we are to care for and defend them. Prov. 31:8 -"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute." James 1:27- "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." It is a command of God's to guard and defend and look after human life, God's little image bearers (Mt. 25:31-46).
Yet, in a civilized society, innocent, blameless people fashioned in the likeness and image of the Creator are brutally murdered everyday. They have no trial; they have no judge, no jury, and no right of appeal. They face murderous hands that easily rush into sin: assassins that are paid to administer gross injustice upon these weak and vulnerable human beings. Their innocent blood is being spilled across our nation and it cries out for justice. The light needs to be shown on this horrific procedure, that has turned out to be a quick fix to cover-up the immorality and decadence in our nation.
John 3:19-20- "This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light, because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed." We can't ignore the greatest evil of our time if America is ever to become a Christian nation again.
The media has played a role of complacency. They know if they ever showed an abortion on television, this horror would come to an abrupt end. It is virtually impossible to see a picture of an aborted child, but how many tens-of-thousands of victims of the Nazi Holocaust were shown on television? How many pictures of slaves being lynched or in a slavery production such as "Roots" were shown?
In the Vietnam War, how many times did we see burnt, dismembered bodies brought into our living rooms, and every evening on the television screen was a box off to the side of the TV screen listing the casualties count. What do you think would happen if we applied that with a body count from the abortion mills across our country? You never see an aborted baby because proponents know that if the light were shown in the darkness, people would see the atrocities and would recoil in horror.
If a womb had windows abortion would end. Unfortunately, abortion happens in secrecy. Just as people asked, "What were the German-Christians doing when the Nazis were slaughtering Jews?" our grandchildren will ask, "What were you doing when they were killing God's babies? ' The American Holocaust.' Why did you not stop it? How could you have lived all that time and not lifted a hand or your voice to stop it?"
Ezekiel 22:24-31 "...I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found none. So I will pour out my wrath on them and consume them with my fiery anger bringing down on their own heads what they have done, declares the Lord." We are sending mere children out in the streets to fight a man's battle. We are raising a fatherless nation and a gaying America, and motherhood is despised.
Judah's most flagrant sin was that she, "…did not plead the case of the fatherless to win it." Jeremiah 5:28. The people were praising God with their mouths, while sacrificing their children to a false god. This was intolerable before Almighty God. But nobody knew it because the prophets and the priests weren't telling. Too judgmental!
The people loved it this way. They wanted – no, they demanded, positive, "seeker friendly" messages. Messages that would help them feel more at peace with themselves and with "god." The accommodating priests and prophets of the day, in order not to offend the easily offended, dressed the wound of God's people as though it were not serious. They proclaimed peace, when God was not at all at peace with them.
What is happening in our nation to innocent children compared with God's laws and rules and judgments, a profoundly serious discrepancy can be seen. The Lord is looking for those who will do justice where there is a gross injustice; those who love mercy and justice. God's people must step up, and soon, to protect the innocent, or God's judgment will descend upon our land. What's it gonna take, a killer wave? Another 9-11? There is no homeland security powerful enough, or police force big enough, that can restore God's protective hand over our nation once again. The baby in the womb has as much right to life as any of us.
In Jesus' Name, get off your posterior.

C harles Finney - theologian, author, lawyer, preacher
"When he opened his mouth he was aiming a gun. When he spoke bombardment began. The effects of his speaking were almost unparalleled in modern history. Over half a million people were converted through his ministry...in an age when there were no amplifiers or mass communications, he spearheaded a revival which literally altered the course of history." He hated slavery with a passion and became a champion of many social reform issues of the 18th century. His convictions were born in the fires of revival and committed to the full authority of the Bible. It was either revival or riot- reminiscent of the power that followed the first century apostles in the Book of Acts. Over 80% of his converts stayed true to Christ without ever backsliding. This was due to stressing holiness and purity. - Leonard Ravenhill
The problem in America is the Christian Church. It has become so lukewarm and ineffective. Church members can go get an abortion without a flinch. Their consciences are seared because they are taught soft, comfortable messages Sunday after Sunday. They have no conviction of sin. As they enter the death camp to kill their babies they tell us "God will forgive us."
Twenty-eight nights in a row Finney never made an altar call. He didn't preach the love of God. He didn't say "you're a sinner, God loves you." He didn't preach grace, he preached Law. He didn't preach love, he preached judgment. He didn't preach heaven, he preached hell. He didn't say "you're a wonderful person" he said "you're a rebel." But he got results. 64% of D.L. Moody's converts backslid. 80% of the converts Finney got stood because he knew how to attack the human will, not just the emotions. Reverend Finney's message goes on or is at least represented with more believers bearing the courage, diligence, and true devotion such as my fellow faithful street warriors. Unfortunately as proclaimers we are confronted persecuted, exiled, restrained attacked, not only by the United States government but by the abortion lovers, the apathetic Christian Church, mothers and fathers and families killing their children, and the baby killers themselves Sometimes even our own families try to shame, discourage, defeat us and shut us up. I can go on and on, but the bottom line is we have the victory, but we have to show up for the battle. Every time we show up outside these gates, the devil flees. VICTORY! When God's Word goes forth, we win. Unfortunately when we stay in our warm comfortable beds and let somebody else do it, we lose. As we close one year and look forward to another, let us look at the victories of 2004.
We witnessed approximately 10,685 babies killed, 337 babies saved in 2004, twelve salvations, four sets of twins saved, and three adoptions!
Be encouraged, and look forward to more saves in 2005~ Angela
"T'was the week before Christmas..."
Reporting from the Killing Fields of Granite City, IL
Death Toll – December 13-18, 2004
Monday- Bag n' tag 146 babies from last week's carnage. PTL! for the ten proclaimers who came to court and stood with the Michael family. Psalm 27:1-2 "The Lord is my light and my salvation- whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life- of whom shall I be afraid? When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall." In the wee hours of Monday morning we were notified of a legal team qualified and led to take over our pending litigation cases. We walked into the courtroom prayed up and ready to represent ourselves if need be, but God shined through and blessed us. We were granted a continuance. We prayed with the saints who stood with us as we left the courthouse.
Tuesday-29, KS, MS, MO, IL, 2 saves. Both abortion-minded mothers one white, one black came back out of the abortion mill at different times and spoke with those saints standing in the gap in the bitter cold, and thanked them for being there and that they changed their minds and chose not to kill their child.
Wednesday-25, MS, IN2, FL, MO, IL, 1 save. Seasoned proclaimers pick up on things outside this deathcamp, so it was no surprise to see a car with a young girl from Mississippi drive up to complete the 2nd day of the late-term abortion, with personalized plate with "GODMDIT" emblazoned on it. Lord forgive us! Small Victories 17 the adoption- six week old Emily was adopted by a couple from Springfield, IL.
Thursday-25, midnight abortions, TX, WI, MO, IL, 1 save. A handful of proclaimers were arriving for the battle for the lives of these lil baby girls & boys, when Angela managed to flag down a black couple coming to kill and dump their baby in Granite City, IL. They were attentive and listened to her. They took the literature and thanked her, then drove onto the lot and parked on the end. Angela informed proclaimers of the situation and asked them to pray as she walked over to the side where they parked, sitting in their car. Angela motioned for them to roll the window down, they complied, and for the next thirty minutes, Angela got on her knees and prayed, spoke and begged for this innocent child's life. After some time, defiantly this mother and father stormed into the mill, saints continued to pray and be encouraged that God would intervene and not to be distracted at the circumstances. God is still in control! Twenty minutes after we left the abortion mill, the second shift of saints reported in, all THREE walked back out of this death house. Praise God !
Friday-43 - WI 2, IN 4, TX, KY, MO, IL, 2 saves. It was like a sale $ at the shopping mall, 2-5 people deep these mothers and fathers and even grandparents lined-up to sign the death warrants out on their children. The sign upon exiting Granite City should read "Thank ya'll for killing ya babies and dumping them here. Ya'll come back now, ya here!" Later that morning, we heard the gruesome story that was breaking across our country. An 8-month pregnant mother was murdered in her home and her baby ripped from her womb and stolen. But this happens every day at the Hope(less) abortion mill, it just doesn't make the headlines or the evening news. Read article: The Nightmare before Christmas here on OSA or at www.smallvictoriesusa.com.
Saturday-55 - IN5, OK, MO, IL, 4 saves. The night's frost blanketed the mood outside this death house and inside we knew the morbid cold that would surround these workers and mothers as the assembly line killings began. By 6:30 a.m. 14 cars from the previous day were already inside delivering their babies or being ripped from their pregnant mother's wombs. Prayer warriors and sidewalk counselors began arriving as carloads of killer-moms and their accomplices piled into this baby-killing factory.
A young girl and her mother from Missouri pulled up and proclaimers pleaded and prayed as they sat there hesitating to go in, the young girl was crying. Finally the mother took her in and they stood inside the deathcamp guard's cage for a while listening to the pleas for mercy, still they went in. Approximately one hour later they came out, the girl was stoic, the mother was angry and screaming at her for refusing to go through the abortion. I beckoned saints to just pray, the mother was too angry to dialog with and it might get more heated if we try to engage, so we indicated to the girl as she looked straight ahead, we love you. They drove off!
Twelve deathscorts were working for the bountys placed on these babies with verocity. Throughout the morning's deathwatch, three mothers at different points of time came back out of this death house and issued a stay of execution for their children.
All week we saw Jaguars, Lexus, Esclades, BMW's pull up and go into this killing mill to rid themselves of the financial burdens, they chose their bling-bling* (expensive, esp. showy or vulgar jewelry or clothing) over their babies.
Rudolph the Reindeer and helpers played Santa outside this deathhouse and helped bring a little joy to the saved mothers and their babies and families with donations of groceries and clothing and a few toys as the body count mounted inside Hope(less) abortuary. By 12:20 p.m. fifty-five mothers had their Christmas babies torn from their wombs, where they were nestled in warmth. It only took a few minutes for them to be terrorized with sharp objects and suction hoses, 5 times the power of a Hoover vacuum and ripped apart and thrown into a cold pan. They are the King's children.
Is this how we treat royalty? Their father is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords!
177 babies killed. 10 babies saved. 1172 babies saved since January 2000 and 17 babies have been adopted!
He was born in a manger, hung on a Cross and paid a debt He did not owe.
Little baby on the hay, soon there'll be another day when nails
Shall pierce Your hands and feet as You provide our sins defeat
Risen Jesus on the throne we lift our praise to You alone for You're the gift
That we receive the moment our hearts believe.
This Christmas as you consider all the awesome things that have come to you
Through Jesus, God's perfect gift, remember that it is but a taste of all the good things that are yet to come.
II Corinthians 9:12-15 "This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!"

Eleven days left till we celebrate the birthday of a baby born to pay a debt that He didn't owe, so we could live. It has been so cold, and bitter winds test the lifesavers as we stand on the death watch at Christmas time. It's so disheartening to see babies being killed at this time of year, and after our time has ended we are out on the streets delivering clothing and a few toys and some food to babies that were spared. But, it has taught us the value of life, commitment, and sacrifice.
The demons were lusting after the innocent blood Saturday as there were 14 deathscorts from both Wash U. and St. Louis U. escorting the Christmas babies to their deaths. Sodomites from Eden Theological Seminary were in a festive mood, laughing as each mother walked through the door as they held their infamous signs "Pro-choice, Pro-Family & We Pray."
Tag-team serial killers were inside this American Family extermination camp. Yogendra Shah arrived around 8:00 A.M. and began the dismemberments. Felon Alan Palmer shot through the garage doors at 11:50 A.M. Five minutes later Yogi shot out the other side and drove over to the hospital across the street, presumably to check on patients. Clients were still arriving in the afternoon to kill their babies.
We noticed the black holocaust is staying steady at 60 percent of those babies killed everyday in Granite City, IL. There is no black representation on the weekdays standing in the gap, and only one black man on Saturdays. Where's the Black Church ? "Keep the Dream alive. Keep the Dream alive"...we chanted.
God blessed the efforts of the lifesavers: seven turnaways, three mothers talked with us, one mother Tamika was 16 weeks pregnant all the way from Tennessee . She took all our information and listened to sidewalk counselors. Another couple from Missouri came out and talked and said they were going to keep the baby and took our resource information. An older black couple came out and said they didn't kill and took all our information and a Bible.
We came home to an unscheduled crisis. The plumbing was being tempermental, which caused the cleanup that added to the normal six to eight loads of laundry for this family of thirteen (nine still at home). On a Saturday afternoon where are you going to find a plumber, let alone the Maytag man? Well, looks like the family washer went to be with the Lord. I guess that's why God gave us laundromats. PTL!
I asked the kids, "Did one of you pray for patience today? Cause I think the Lord is answering that request." But the next few hours were really going to test our stamina. A homeless mother called, she has been through the wringer. She and her aunt were so disgusted, all they got from pregnancy centers was the run around. She came from a homeless shelter for domestic abused women & children. It had filthy; soiled diapers laying open faced on the floors, torn furniture, but the aunt noticed the director had brand new leather chairs in her nicely decorated office. She grabbed her niece and left. We've put her in a room for now, but this mother has decided to put her baby daughter up for adoption. Her name is Emily, she's beautiful. Big blue eyes, and she's only 6 weeks old.
During the prophet Jeremiah's time, the people of Judah had fallen far from God. They had shed so much innocent blood in the land that God had determined to remove them from His presence. Time and again, He sent His prophets and His judgments calling them back to Himself but they would not respond to His voice or to His rebuke.
Her most egregious sin was that she, "...did not plead the case of the fatherless to win it." Jeremiah 5:28. The people were praising God with their mouths, while sacrificing their children to a false god.
The people loved it this way. They wanted- no, they demanded, positive, "seeker friendly" messages. Messages that would help them feel more at peace with themselves and with "god." The accommodating priests and prophets of the day, in order not to offend the easily offended, dressed the wound of God's people as though it were not serious. They proclaimed peace, when God was not at all at peace with them.
They were assured by their lying priests and prophets that things were just fine. Oh yes, they had it all! They could sacrifice their children at Topheth in the valley of Ben Hinnom and, at the same time, worship God in His house. They were safe, so they thought (Jeremiah 5:9-11). But God was watching! No mercy would be shown to them.
Why not? It was because of the innocent blood being shed in the land. The people were sacrificing their children at Topheth in the valley of Ben Hinnom while worshipping God at the same time. The Bible tells us that this was something that never entered God's mind (Jeremiah 7:31). It never entered His mind that His people would do such a wicked thing! The land was full of blood, and this blood has a voice. It cries out to God day and night. It cries out for justice. Innocent blood must be avenged.
Sounds strangely reminiscent of the Church in America today. The prophets and priests of Jeremiah's time were preaching positive "seeker friendly" messages and the people loved it that way. But God didn't! God desires mercy, not sacrifice (Hosea 6:6; Matthew 12:7). That means there has to be justice! In order for mercy to be poured out from heaven, justice must have its way on this earth. No justice- No mercy! It's just that simple.
Jeremiah was called to bring God's Word and God's Law face to face with God's people. They hated him for it. It exposed their sin. It hurt and was certainly not a popular message. But once the judgment had been delivered, if the people repented of their sin, mercy could be dispensed from heaven. God desires mercy but to get there, there must be justice.
Is God's patience with child sacrifice in America coming to an end?
Today in America, we Christians are worshiping God while children are being sacrificed at abortion mills. We ask for God's mercy, but have no concern for His justice. Remember, No justice- No mercy! Oh, we plead the case of the fatherless, but not to win it. We trust the Republican Party to do that.
Yes, we have become pleaders- not winners. This was the sin of Jeremiah's time. Our newly elected President says that the culture is not ready for the overturn of Roe v. Wade . He is not pleading to win. He is just pleading.
The culture may not be ready to end abortion Mr. President, but God is! He is looking for a man to unsheathe the Sword of the Spirit and restore justice to the land. Surely we Christians can do more than vote Republican, support a local crisis pregnancy center, and do Life Chain.
We have become a nation of murderers and, even though we elected a Republican President who confesses to be a "born again" Christian, we are still not really ready to "plead the case of the fatherless to win it." For we are still not ready to bring justice into the streets for pre-born children.~ Flip Benham
That is why the Lord is using the Michaels. Sometimes it's sort of like a scene from the gladiator days, where the Roman's delighted themselves by filling the Colosseum to capacity and throwing the Christians to the lions who haven't seen a meal in three days. "If God be for you who can be against you." Its all good!
I realize after all, We are more than conquerors; Romans 8:36 -39, "As it is written: 'For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.' No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Hope abortion Clinic would like nothing more than to cut off the Head from the Body. Once you cut off the Head, the tail will die. As a frontline ministry the battle is fierce, we are only as strong as our weakest link. In the last days there will be a separation of sheep and goats. Those that want to play a good game of war and those that show up to win the war.
My brothers and sisters in Christ, we are there to win the war.

Death Toll November 29- December 4, 2004
the Killing Fields of Granite City, IL
Monday - Bag n' Tag 95 from past week's "medical waste"
Thursday - 25 midnite abortions IN, WI, MO, Il 3 saves - Dr. D. James Kennedy representative and Coral Ridge Ministries camera crew were in town filming and interviewing mothers and families that have been saved and helped through S.V. ministry. Cameras were rolling as proclaimers were spreading the Gospel and interceding on behalf of these babies marked for death. Loud protesting was coming from the steel mill. It seems they were protesting the unsafe conditions within the steel mill and seniority practices. The crew drove over and interviewed some picketers. Decades ago Granite City was a boom town known for its famous steel mill, people came from all over the country to work and raise a family. Now, Granite City is a doomed town, known for its infamous baby-killing mill. Their blood flows throughout this city, and it demands vengeance.
Friday - 42 KY, IN 2, TN, MO, IL - Coral Ridge ministries camera crew video-taped the crime scene outside this abortuary. They were shocked to see how many out-of-state late-term babies were being marched into the mouth of this purple beast. They filmed various sites in Granite City, IL. They commented how depressing and deplorable this oppressed city of slaughter felt and looked.
Saturday - 44 TN, LA, IN, MO, IL 3 saves - Cars from the previous day began arriving at 5:50 a.m. They had to wait in their cars until the deathcamp guard arrived at 6:40 a.m. They lined up to sign the death warrants on their babies, moaning and crying as they could barely walk once again back into the killing place. On this side of town, the Spirit of Death was reveling, on the other side of town, there was a celebration of Life with the birth of twin baby boys, Cory & Cameron, 7 lbs 8 oz, & 6 lbs 13oz. We first met them months ago when their mother Melanie crossed our path outside Hope(less) killing fields. Alleluia!
Sixteen deathscorts from Washington University in St. Louis, MO and St. Louis Jesuit-Catholic University, marched these babies into their brutal deaths. Praise and worship was led by Loren and his guitar and team singers. Bro. John led with Scripture as sidewalk counselors offered mothers a real choice, one that they could live with. A sky-writer plane flew over and blessed proclaimers as it drew a giant sign of the Cross in the blue skies over this killing field.
Hours later mothers began leaving this mill with their brown sacks, that's all they had left. None were smiling. A family from Louisiana had to carry their young crumpled-up daughter to the car after she killed her child. A car with three young adults stopped their car and began shouting obscenities and calling the graphic signs "pornographic." Proclaimers tried to dialog, but they wanted the police to arrest us and they dialed authorities several times trying to get someone to arrest us for showing the truth. "Why aren't you going after the monster that caused that baby to die that way?" we asked them. When they can't attack the message, they attack the messenger. "You're giving our city a bad-name," they yelled. When authorities didn't show- up, they finally drove away.
In total 172 babies were killed, 7 babies were saved. 1158 babies have been saved since January 2000, and 16 babies have been adopted!
The Church has basically turned its back on these babies scheduled to die. Throwing money at a pregnancy center is not going to save one baby's life that is scheduled to die this day. Standing outside an abortion mill however when that baby is scheduled to die that day, will make a difference. Saving babies is easy, finding lifesavers to do it, now that's hard. ~Pastor Ed Martin
One day, God will ask, "What did you do, when they were killing my babies?" Proverbs 24:11-12 "Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter."
Exposing sin is love. When we stand outside the high schools, and abortionist's Ob/Gyn office, and Labor Day parades, we are loving our neighbor enough to tell him the truth. In the Bible, God spoke more about sin than He did love. This is why the Church has turned its back to the real holocaust in our Nation. They are loving their congregation straight to hell, by their silence and indifference to sin. Lev. 19:17 " Do not hate you brother in your heart. Rebuke your neighbor frankly so you will not share in his guilt." If our leaders don't expose sin and talk about repentance how can there be mercy? Instead of attacking the message, they attack the messenger. John 7:7 "The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify that what it does is evil."
This is why Granite City and our Nation as a whole hate us for bearing the truth of what goes on within their city limits. John 3:16-19 "...men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed." If you see a school bus full of children about to drive off a cliff do you try and stop it, or just look the other way? If you see your neighbor's house on fire and his three children inside screaming, "save us..save us.." what do you do? Do you go back inside your house and turn the evening news up a lil louder to drown out their screams? You take your kids ice skating on a frozen lake. All of a sudden you hear a crack, a little boy has fallen through the ice, he can't swim. "Help me!" he cries. Do you watch him go under for the second time? Or do you say, "Well it's too cold and I'm not a good swimmer, but I'll pray for him and watch him struggle for his life." Like in these instances, this is happening everyday. The church has closed its ears to the cries.The Church is too busy at playing Jesus and playing at being Christians to worry about the least of these my lil brothers and sisters. Christmas time is always the hardest time of year to stand in the cold and watch children die when other children are so happy and full of anticipation.
God Almighty gives these little bundles of joy to families, as a beautiful gift, but their moms and dads take these gifts and tear them apart and throw them back into God's face with a "No thank you, here is your gift, torn to pieces, now leave me alone."
Perhaps, this Christmas, we would be willing to do just a bit more to save God's children. A few hours at a death camp could make a difference in a child's life, a few dollars to a ministry that is dedicated to saving children at their point of death.
We have a moral obligation to defend and speak for the little ones.."What did you do when they were killing my babies"..God will ask.

Friday - 28 MN, IN, MO, IL
Saturday - 41 IN 3 , KY, MN, MO, IL - 4 saves- 1 Caucasian, 2 Black-American, 1 Hispanic- 7 weeks pregnant.
In total 95 babies were killed, 4 babies were saved. 1151 babies have been saved since January 2000, and 16 babies have been adopted!
Abortion numbers were down this past week due to the holiday. If you noticed, we celebrated the four lives spared. They all happened on Saturday, the most dismal, wet, and cold weather yet in front of these gates of hell, and yet lives were being saved with a great turnout of proclaimers. Those that stood for the least of these were the true history makers of our day. Warriors! They weren't complaining of the cold, or their rain-soaked clothes, or their waterlogged shoes as they walked back and forth on the sidewalks surrounding this sacrificial altar calling out to the families going in to kill their children. They were encouraging one another in the battle on these front lines. They were praying and interceding for these babies and their mothers. They were praising God and enlightening the wicked and the lost. They were the salt and light to a dying city, full of death and evil. Numbers do make a difference outside abortion mills.
God is revealing the evil and arrogance in this blood-soaked hospital across the street from this abortion mill. Another woman patient was sexually assaulted inside Gateway Regional Hospital which houses two abortionists, Yogendra Shah and felon Alan Palmer, and it continues to cover up the botched abortions at their hands. Recently a nurse was fired for being a whistle-blower. She went through proper channels to expose a drug addicted surgeon who was on staff. Hospital CEO Mark Benz did not fire the physician, he fired the nurse. How many "medical complications" from the Hope Clinic for Women must be wheeled across the street and covered-up inside this hospital before red-flags go up? Why would a woman's health and safety be jeopardized in both instances by this administration? Because it pays! The abortionist and the drug-addicted physician bring in more revenue than the whistle blowers. This hospital continues to lower its standards because its god is money. Unfortunately, this can be said of the churches and the community as a whole in Granite City, IL- "If at first we can't succeed, lower our standards."
Oppression and child-killing will continue as long as we tolerate bloodshed, bloodshed in the womb and in the streets. How can we point a finger at the mother in Texas for cutting the arms off her lil girl and killing her, when this is happening everyday across America, and five to six days a week in Granite City, IL? This mother just waited longer than most and tried to save thousands of dollars. The public has no right to be any more repulsed, shocked, or angry about that poor mother in Texas unless they are equally repulsed, shocked, or angry about all the babies in abortion clinics across America. Both babies cried, both babies died. What is the difference? How can we condemn Scott Peterson for the death of his unborn son when every mother walking into Hope Clinic carries out the same act upon her unborn child behind these purple doors, and four hours later, she walks out with her paper sack and drives away?
When are we going to realize the double-standards and hypocrisy? America will continue to deteriorate unless we demand a respect for all life, beginning by restoring personhood to the unborn and enforcing equal protection under the Constitution. LIFE is the first inalienable right, then liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Without the first, how can we enjoy the other two? Abortion will end in America and Granite City, IL the day the Church realizes we have the power to stop it and it's just that simple! If abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia continue much longer, America will not only be completely destroyed morally, but also physically, spiritually, militarily, and financially. It's already happening. Look at America's debt. We are over spent in real estate and credit cards, to name just two. This is a spiritual battle; the only way we can win is when the Church and its people stand together as one spiritual army and fight against one foe, the Spirit of Jezebel, and its executioner that being the power of abortion. It's that simple. The Church must come out of its four walls and flock to the abortion mills in large numbers; just show up for the battle. And praise God and worship Him. That's it! The End of Abortion!
Endurance means to "persevere and stand one's ground against opposition."
Endurance is the determination to stay with a problem until it is solved.
Hanging on a cross does not evoke thoughts of joy. If it were easy everyone would be doing it! Dying on a cross is one of the most painful and cruelest ways to die and yet that's what Jesus did for us. He knew what He had to endure for us. Jesus said, "I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy: nothing will harm you!" Luke 10:19
What are we willing to risk for Him and these innocent babies? They are crucified everyday. We are dirty pro-lifers. We don't have the luxury of carpet under our feet and climate-controlled offices, and yet every one of these faces we see going into these abortion mills has premeditated the murder of her unborn child. We were saved by a dirty Savior who was flogged and beaten into a miry muck, unrecognizable, drug through the mud, and hung on a Cross, so we could be free. Isaiah 53:5
We are all tempted to give up. But we must endure hardship as a soldier for Christ.
"...who for the joy set before Him endured the cross." Hebrews 12:2

Hope Clinic- Granite City
Monday - Bag n' Tag 143 from past week's "medical waste"
Tuesday – 29 midnite abortions IN, MS, MO, IL. Passersby screaming and yelling. They took the time to drive by the extermination camp, not to attack the message, but to attack the messenger. The truth is convicting.
Wednesday - 17 PA, IN, MS, MO, IL 1 save. Breaking News story! President Bush grants an executive pardon to the White House turkey formerly the main course this Thanksgiving Day! Wouldn't it be great if President Bush could see fit to honor our lil boys and lil girls in the womb with the same honor to spare their precious innocent lives? Just my thoughts...
Thursday - 30 midnite abortions IN, NY, KY, MO, IL 1 save IL. Proclaimers stood in the cold, pouring rain begging two young ladies not to go in there and commit this act of murder. They hesitated and listened before they went in. Half an hour later, they came back out smiling and they said they didn't kill their baby and drove off the lot.
Friday - 33 IN, AK, KY, MO, IL 1 save. A young couple came back out and took the information and resource numbers. They changed their minds and chose life for their child.
Saturday - 36 AK, IN, NY, TN, MO, IL. 3 saves including a young girl and her parents who came back out of this extermination camp and told us they couldn't go through with the abortion. Unfortunately, a couple from IL were back. She could barely walk. This was the third day of the dismemberment of their baby. We watch the evening news and we are so upset at the senseless beheadings of innocent civilians in Iraq, and yet this is happening everyday here in America within the purple confines of Hope torture chambers in Granite City, IL. Where's the outcry and disgust? Where's the humanity?
Young Pvt. USMC Issac Horina was set to ship out to Japan this afternoon to begin Marine duties, but made the time to be a soldier for Christ. He stood and prayed for these innocent babies on these front lines of the war for the unborn. Local police responded to these gates of hell, but not to protect and serve these unborn children. Sister Grace was threatened with arrest for kneeling and praying at the sidewalk entrances of this extermination camp. Police decided it was unwarranted and let her pray after she moved away from the entrances. Bro John and the preacher boys were presenting the gospel to those who found themselves in a place where they should not be. Proclaimers prayed for those special forces who would be standing for the children who would not be celebrating Christ's birthday at the Santa Parade this afternoon along the streets of Granite City, IL. Read: Christ
In total 145 babies were killed, 6 babies were saved. 1147 babies have been saved since January 2000, and 16 babies have been adopted!
It walks like a Christian, it talks like a Christian, it even acts like a Christian - but it's not a Christian. Most of our churches are full of them. And my people love it this way! Most churches, not all, have conformed to the ways of the world.
The true way of the Cross is not easy. There are Pastors out there that are telling their congregation when confronted with their inactive church, "Well, we win in the end.“ How can we win, if we're missing in action? We have to show up for the battle. That's the first rule of engagement. In the army, they have search and recovery teams that are sent out in the field for M.I.A's. Who do we send out to find the missing Church of Jesus Christ?
There also seems to be a holiday that is being forgotten and the devil would love nothing more than to see it missing from our collective memories in America. Thanksgiving is rapidly being removed and being replaced with "Turkey-Day," where we enjoy it with shopping at the 24 hour K-mart, and watching football games. Thanksgiving reminds us of the gracious hand of Almighty God providentially establishing our nation to be a "city set on a hill."
Few people realize that America was founded because a devout band of nonconformist Christians lived and breathed the covenant promises of Jesus Christ. They vigorously rejected the idea that the traditions and doctrines of men should be added to the worship of God. For this conviction, they were mocked and persecuted. But although the Pilgrims left England because of religious persecution, they actually left Holland and came to America for additional reasons, including a passion to protect their children from bad socialization and ungodly influences. Christian parents should take note: America's first founding fathers risked everything to separate their children from evil and to build a multi-generational legacy.
These families were willing to sacrifice their lives, if necessary, "even though they [the Pilgrims] be but stepping stones" for future generations of Christians they would never meet.
But still more lamentable, and of all sorrows most heavy to be borne, was that many of the children, influenced by these conditions, and the great licentiousness of the young people of the country, and the many temptations of the city, were led by evil example into dangerous courses, getting the reins off their necks and leaving their parents. Some became soldiers, others embarked upon voyages by sea and others came upon worse courses tending to dissoluteness and the danger of their souls, to the great grief of the parents and the dishonor of God. So they saw their posterity would be in danger to degenerate and become corrupt.
Thanksgiving, more than any other American holiday, points us directly to Christ and His providential hand in our national history. It points to the fact that this was a nation founded by Christians. It points to the fact that our governmental system was built upon biblical principles. It points to the fact that the inalienable rights of men such as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness were given by God and not by governments.
They arrived on the shores of this continent in the month of November1620. Half of them died that very first winter. But the providential hand of God, which brought them safely across the Atlantic, also provided for them an Indian. It was Squanto who, after that first horrible winter in 1620, befriended the Pilgrims and taught them how to fish, hunt, and plant corn. Without Squanto it is unlikely that any of the Pilgrims would have survived. The God of history was at work. Squanto was a gift from Almighty God to help the Pilgrims. They knew it and gave thanks.
This is exactly what our Pilgrim forefathers did. They brought God glory on earth by completing the great task He had given them to do.
This is why the devil hates Thanksgiving! This is why he is busying himself revising American history in school textbooks. He is terrified that we might remember the manifold works of Christ in the establishment of America. The devil has pulled out all the stops to steal Thanksgiving from the American memory. The devil knows very well what will happen to him when we remember who we are and why we are here. It reminds us that we are beholden to Jesus Christ and to no other. Always, give thanks with a grateful heart, give thanks to the Holy One, give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son..grateful people are victorious people. Thank you Lord, for our heritage, for our nation, for the provision of a sovereign and merciful God.
Thanks be to God, He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! 1 Cor. 15:57

Monday - Bag n' Tag, 164 from past week's "medical waste"
Tuesday -31 midnight abortions NB, IN, MO, IL 1 save- 10 weeks, a black couple. Jennifer drove onto the parking lot, jumped out and walked over to Angela to thank her for helping her to save her baby. She has since given birth and had pictures to share of her joy. We have never encountered an unhappy mother who chose life for her baby. Unfortunately, we can't say the same for mothers who do kill.
Thursday - Veteran's Day, 35 IN, KY, MO, IL 2 saves- Carla 6 weeks twins. Proclaimers begged her and her friend not to kill her child. She went in reluctantly. After she was inside this slaughterhouse, she noticed all the young girls that were waiting to kill their babies were crying. It was an eerie feeling she said. Carla came back out into the loving arms of lifesavers who had been standing for hours in the chilly rain. We were able to give them shelter in the ultrasound van and offered to show them a free picture of her unborn twins!
Friday - 29 TX, IN, MO, IL 1 save IN. A male driver drove off in a rage because the girl refused to kill the baby. He temporarily lost control of the car and almost drove into the ultrasound van. Scott Peterson found GUILTY of two murders, his pregnant wife and unborn son.
Saturday - 48 GA, IN, KY, MO, IL 2 saves. Over one-hundred lifesavers came out from their comfort zones and onto the streets in front of these gates of hell in Granite City, IL. They took up the battle for the lives of these innocent baby girls and boys. Missouri Baptist students and the preacher boys proclaimed the gospel of Jesus Christ to mothers and fathers who were taking their children in to be slaughtered. Bro. John was witnessing to the four deathscorts who were worshipping and praying to Buddah.
Sidewalk counselors were working the sidewalks and the alley as the last line of defense for these babies and their mothers. A fourth generation black family was screaming at proclaimers, "How about all the dead people in Iraq ?" We responded, "How about all the dead babies here in America?" as they marched their lineage into this American Family Extermination Camp. As far as the war in Iraq, we have sown domestic war in the womb and we are reaping foreign terrorism in our streets. Bloodshed follows bloodshed. Our nation cannot escape the bloodguilt of abortion. The quickest way to end the war in Iraq is to end the war upon the unborn, in the womb. God is not mocked, for whatever man soweth, that shall he also reap Gal. 6:7-8.
In total 143 babies were killed, 6 babies were saved. 1141 babies have been saved since January 2000, and 16 babies have been adopted!
As long as immorality exists and is tolerated by the Church, abortion mills will thrive. Abortion exists because the Church allows it to exist. Instead of confronting the problem we are treating the symptoms with band-aids and such. We need to be going to the root of the problem and cutting off its ugly head. Instead we are embracing it and making excuses why it should run rough shod over what's left of our values and principles that were once founded on godly righteousness. With the presidential election behind us, I keep hearing about the red states vs. the blue states. Sound familiar? It should. In 1861, we were defending the morality of slavery. Confederate States believed they had the moral right to own human beings as personal property. Just as the blue states represented in this past election believe in abortion. Abortion is no different than slavery. Both are beliefs that one human being may own another as personal property to be disposed of if the owner chooses. The infamous Roe V. Wade 7-2 decision, and the Dred Scott 7-2 decision are both a disgraceful dark part of our history. One day our history books will record the desperate heroism of those "history-makers" in America who passionately cried out in defense of these unwanted appendages. Legislation from the bench defended the right of a mother to kill her own child on demand, and yet in the Constitution that very same child‘s first inalienable right, the right to life, went unprotected. Is the unborn child a human being? Then why isn't it getting the same protection as you or I? Personhood must be restored to the innocent or, as a Nation scoping out the future, we are doomed!
The schizophrenic nature of law as being legislated from the benches in America today is being revealed through the unborn child in the womb. Every day over 4,000 mothers march into these American Family Extermination Camps to commit the same act as Scott Peterson was found guilty of. Why are these mothers being held to a different standard? How can justice demand his guilt and yet turn a blind eye when it comes to those who are guilty of the same act? Either the baby is no person protected by law or it is a person protected by law. Either people should be punished for harming an unborn baby or they should be free to harm as many as they wish with impunity.
Scott Peterson's guilt is America 's guilt. It reveals the flaw of America repeating the dark history of denying personhood to human beings made in the image of God. The past records in bloody detail what happens when this takes place. Laws that once protected human life were removed by judicial flaw or raw political or military force. As a result, the vunerable and weak became a prey to injustice bent on their extinction or enslavement. This was true with Nazi Germany who denied the personhood of Jews in Hitler's death camps. It is also true when it comes to American slavery that denied our black brothers and sisters were fully human, designating them "non-persons."
It is our hope and prayer that this guilty verdict results in society remembering the thousands of preborn babies who are legally killed by abortion everyday; babies who do not enjoy protection under the Unborn Victims of Violence Act. Our Creator endows every innocent human being with the same inalienable rights guaranteed by the U. S. Constitution, and that guarantee should apply equally to each and every preborn individual.

Monday - Bag n' Tag 107 babies from past week's "medical waste"
Wednesday - 29 killed MO, IL 1 save. Three proclaimers were crying out for the least of these. Deathcamp workers were storming into this slaughterhouse. It appears they weren't celebrating four more years of G.W. Bush. We also noticed they weren't wearing their huge W buttons with the red slash across it anymore. I thought the W must mean woman and the red slash signifies their true dislike of them. Oh well, let the truth be known and exposed. Abortion hurts women! Isn't God good? What the devil means for harm, God can turn it around and use for good.
Thursday - 31 killed midnight abortions IN 2, KY, MO,IL 1 save IN. A mom and daughter came out of this deathcamp. The girl was crying. The mother was angry. She yelled at the proclaimers, "She didn't kill the baby...hope you're happy!" We began praying for this family as they left this extermination center.
Small Victories save Hailey Ann born, 6 lbs 10 oz!
Friday - 39 killed IN 2, TN, MO, IL 2 saves. Angela, 24 wks pregnant, was tearfully straddling life or death for her unborn baby. Her mother Vicki purposely walked her through the alley so the livesavers would save this child. She already had two young sons by two different fathers and couldn't afford a third baby. "Let us adopt your baby,"we begged. "I can't do that,"she said. "But you can kill it?" She looked puzzled, "How can you help me?" We told her, "We can't, but God can through us. Would you like to see a picture of your baby?" We got some food on her stomach, then we were able to show her a picture of her 24-week old baby girl! Angela and her mother began weeping tears of joy. "I could never do that to my lil girl after seeing her."
"Thank God you were here!" they both exclaimed. We sent them on to Dr. Mark's office to confirm and set up her prenatal follow-up. Later that day, we hooked her up with other resource agencies in her area.
Saturday - 40 killed, IN, TX 2, MO, IL 3 saves. Approximately 50-60 livesavers took to the streets outside these gates of hell in Granite City, IL. Soldiers of Christ embedded themselves on these frontlines and became a living sacrifice for those without a voice. There were only two deathscorts in place. The democratic liberals were still licking their wounds. Praise and worship went forth, as sidewalk counselors and prayer warriors interceded for these mothers and their babies.
In total 164 babies were killed, 7 babies were saved. 1135 babies have been saved since January 2000, and 16 babies have been adopted!
Isaiah 59:7, 14-15 "Their feet rush into sin: they are swift to shed innocent blood...So justice is driven, and righteousness stands at a distance, truth has stumbled into the streets.."
When Bill Clinton took office in 1992 there were 1000 abortion mills in the U.S. When he left office in 2000, there were less than 800, why? Because gentle Christians all over the country stood outside these gates of hell all over the U.S. and proclaimed "Jesus is Lord" and God honored their faithfulness.
The Church must rise up and God will honor our faithfulness again, no matter who is in the White House and who is in charge of the Senate Judiciary Committee! Jeremiah 5:28 We must truly plead the case of the fatherless to win it!!
The most powerful place is not in the mass of the thousands, but in the stance of a few. Those willing to stand separately for the truth. Those unashamed to take the message to the public square, where it is needed the most and done by the least. I am a proclaimer in the streets. That's where the battle is being won. God created three separate and distinct institutions, the family, the Church and government. All three have different roles, sort of like the original "checks and balances!" Our political leaders are a reflection of us. That's an inherent trait of living in a Republic. We get to elect them, so they reflect our values. We know they represent us to a large degree by what they think we want. So guess what? If we're morally bankrupt, they're morally bankrupt. In G.W.'s case, if he compromises on hard issues, it is because we , the Church, has done so. He is a reflection of us. How can we expect him to be theologically sound, if the Church herself isn't??! If our statesmen behave more like politicians, isn't it because the Church has been acting more like the world? We can't expect the Commander in Chief to be the Theologian in Chief. The Church is expected to be the light of the world and the salt of the earth, affecting the government and the family. If that institution is not meeting its standard, it affects the other two, as the other two affect the Church. ~ Mary Ellen Urmin
The responsibility to restore our culture lies squarely at the feet of the Church, where it has always been. This election is one more merciful act from Almighty God to allow us time to fall on our faces and repent for our wicked ways. We are the ones at fault for our culture, not the politicians, though they are certainly easier to blame than having to look inside ourselves. "If My people..." 2 Chronicles 7:14. It is up to us. And I hope we do it, because 2 Chronicles 7:19-22 tells us what happens if we don't.
A message from Ambassador Alan Keyes "If I have done but one thing in the course of this campaign, it was done with this purpose: to make sure that from this moment forward , others would move with pride and with courage to stand under the banner of that truth and to invoke in our political life the truth that our rights come not from men, not from constitutions, not from presidents and judges and human choice, but from Almighty God."
And that truth has inescapable consequences-the inescapable consequence of that truth is that it is not our will that is the standard of justice, that it is not our passion that is the standard of truth.
But those who succumb to those siren-song words of flattery are leading people down the road of its own destruction. And that, sadly, is, in America now, the road that we are on. I will say now, as I have said throughout this campaign, we will not preserve our freedom until we have restored respect for innocent life in the womb.
These babies are not killed out of necessity but out of the most selfish act: convenience. The American holocaust is alive and well and the numbers are slowly creeping upwards at the Hopeless abortion mill. A spirit of death is in the world. If something is a problem, not the right size, not the right color, not the right time, get rid of it. You kill it. "They dress the wound of My people as though it were not serious. ‘Peace, peace,' they say when there is no peace." Jer. 6:14. We look to the Church as our "moral compass" in our Nation.
But, there is a deception in the Church today. That is why the churches are not standing. They call abortion a "social issue." Let the government deal with it. Most pastors will not get involved. It's too dirty. They like clean pro-life, if they're pro-life at all. But, just like the graphic signs, abortion is ugly and it's mean. But it's the truth. No nice, pretty sign has stopped a mother from killing her child, but the truth of what they're about to do to their own flesh and blood HAS changed hearts! It's convicting! Why must we keep covering up the truth in the Church? If Martin Nemoiller was silenced, although the government, Church, and leaders tried, how many more Jews would have been slaughtered in Nazi Germany? Let's not talk about the unfortunate casualties of the holocaust here in America . While the rubble of human remains pile up, we, the church, will just step over them and look the other way until the baby body parts van loads up the boxes and buckets and drives off into the sunset, and the feeling of relief once again is with us... until tomorrow.
We have been born for "such a time as this“ These babies are crying out, "rescue us, have mercy,"and where is the Church? Where are the shepherds? “Feasting and playing” instead of "fasting and praying." The leaders in our Church today are doing their flocks a great disservice. They are leading their congregation straight to hell. Not all. Just most. Noble Peace prize winner Ellie Vechelli said, "I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure humiliation and suffering- we must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormenter, never the tormented. The silence has to stop.
This is what the Lord says; "I will ruin the pride of Judah and the great pride of Jerusalem . These wicked people, who refuse to listen to My words, who follow the stubbornness of their hearts and go after other gods to serve and worship them, will be like this belt- completely useless." Jer.13: 9-10
"But if you do not listen, I will weep in secret because of your pride; my eyes will weep bitterly, overflowing with tears, because the Lord's flock will be taken captive." Jer. 9:11-17
Pastors and Pastorettes, "Come off your thrones!" Before it's too late. Your wickedness will be exposed. "Come down from your thrones for your glorious crowns will fall from your heads." Jer. 13:18 Church! If we don't repent God will expose you… to change you… to save you from the fires of hell. "Because you have forgotten me, and trusted in false gods."
"I will pull your skirts up over your face that your shame may be seen… right there in the streets. Woe to you! How long will you be unclean?" Jer. 13:25-27 God is not going to tolerate the shedding of innocent blood much longer. If you don't go to the war, that has been declared upon the unborn for over 30 years, now, that war will come to you!

The Killing Fields of Granite City , IL
Death Toll – October 25-30, 2004
Monday - Bag n' tag of 130 babies from past week's "medical waste"
Wednesday - closed, staff meeting, 5 employees. Approximately 25-30 students from Ursuline Academy from Springfield, IL. held a prayerful vigil as cars drove by and cursed at them.
Thursday - 22 killed. 3 saves IN, KY, WA, WI, MO, IL. A couple came back out of Hope(less) and proclaimers offered them help, the woman said, "I didn't kill my baby." The man turned to Angela and chest–butted her and yelled, "I hate you c---!" Angela said, "I love you, and God loves you. It's going to be okay." The woman said thank you and told the man to get in the car. He was unhappy the woman changed her mind on going through with the abortion. We asked another couple from Indiana, who pulled onto the parking lot of this abortuary, "You're not going to go in there and kill your baby are you?" The woman got back in her car and smiled then said "No,"and they both drove away, hopefully back to Indiana.
Saturday - 35 killed 3 saves MN, IN, MO, IL. Approximately 35-40 proclaimers began their day by getting uncomfortable in the wee hours of the morning, and crawling out of their warm, dry beds to bring the battle to the cold, wet streets. There, once again, lil boys and girls would be slaughtered to the god of convenience on the altar of stainless steel in Granite City, IL.
The clarion call went out as proclaimers began arriving and manning their positions on these frontlines. Words of warfare went forth and were delivered simultaneously into the overhead microphones at each of the side entrances of this belly of the beast. Praise and worship with celestial voices pierced through the air along with the stench of death from this slaughterhouse. One at a time, lifesavers cried out pleading for the lives of these innocent babies. A couple from Illinois came back out. When asked did they save their baby, they answered, "Yes!" They thanked proclaimers and left.
A while later, two young girls and an older woman came back out. The older woman looked over to Angela as she commented, "You didn't kill your baby, did you?" The woman smiled and said, "No." Another lifesaver offered to let them see a free ultrasound of the baby, all three accepted the invitation. Once inside the Small Victories ultrasound van, we were able to see Tiffany's 28-30 wk old baby girl auditioning for her life! "Here I am mom!" We tried to do measurements to give a more accurate delivery date but she's a gymnast we concluded. Rachel was able to see her 6-week-old baby, we nicknamed him "peanut" and she used her camera phone to show her husband his first glimpse of their unborn child. The grandmother commented that the abortion clinic staff would not let them see the ultrasound or talk with them of any options other than abortion. We hooked them up with doctors and resources and promised to stay in touch. We hugged and prayed with them before they drove away. The mothers both said, "Thank God you people are out here!"
In total 107 babies were killed, 7 babies were saved. 1128 babies have been saved since January 2000, and 16 babies have been adopted!
The Church today has chosen to make light of these critical truths, sin, evil, and hell, to somehow spruce up the image of God in order to strictly promote the love, mercy, and grace of God. A weak, ineffective church that has lost its flavor is our reward for our silence concerning these vital truths of Scripture. The problem is the more we lessen the vindicated justice of God, the more we cheapen the love, grace, and mercy of God. The more the church emphasizes the inflexible demands of God's justice and holiness, the more marvelous the love of God becomes with all its wonderful provisions.
We have tried to communicate for years to the Church of Jesus Christ in America . Abortion is a Gospel issue that can only be won as the Church repents and brings forth fruit meant for repentance that ends the holocaust. There is no educational, political, or financial solution left that can solve this spiritual, moral atrocity. It is going to take a church that is obedient to plead the cause of the fatherless to win it (Jeremiah 5:28). The only ones that can take on and take out the Evil One that comes to kill, steal, and destroy are those who are washed in the blood of the lamb, hold fast to the word of their testimony, and love not their lives unto the death (Revelation 12:11)~.Rev Rusty Thomas
Abortion will come to an end in America when the Church of Jesus Christ decides it will end and not one second sooner!~ Rev. Flip Benham
When I think of all the reformations in civilized society, it has only occurred when the fight was brought to the streets to the public's eye. In Nazi Germany no one would believe the daily atrocities that were taking place until the world saw the pictures, the death chambers, the mounds of hair, the oven rooms, the cannisters of Zyklon-B gas, the stacked-up bunks, the emaciated dead corpses in mass graves. Pictures don't lie. Everything can lie but the pictures. We can escape anything but the pictures. Worldwide indignation came from the pictures. Without the pictures it is unimaginable; it couldn't have been like that. The atrocities and the violence against our black brothers and sisters in the Civil Rights movement would never have been known had it not been for the truth of the pictures of the cruelty upon them. Pictures of wretched –twisted bodies hanging from trees, police dogs attacking our black brothers and sisters in the streets, cannon hoses blasting them in marches. The truth came out onto the streets to show the injustice and we watched it in our living rooms on the evening news.
The Emmet Till case quickly attracted national attention. Mamie Bradley, Emmett's mother, asked that the body be shipped back to Chicago. When it arrived, she inspected it carefully to ensure that it really was her son. Then, she insisted on an open-casket funeral, so that "all the world [could] see what they did to my son." Over four days, thousands of people saw Emmett's body. Many more blacks across the country who might not have otherwise heard of the case were shocked by pictures of Emmett that appeared in Jet magazine. These pictures moved blacks in a way that nothing else had. When the Cleveland Call and Post polled major black radio preachers around the country, it found that five of every six were preaching about Emmett Till, and half of them were demanding that "something be done in Mississippi now."
I am distressed at the thought of the thousands of unborn children that are legally crushed to death by sterile medical instruments. The immensity of the horror of bloody little legs and arms and heads dismembered and piled on these stainless steel altars returns again and again. Their blood cries out. Yes! It is happening again, without the battle pouring out onto the streets of America , with these lil babies torn bodies, no one would believe the evil that is happening everyday.
After World War II, Winston Churchill said- Never, Never, Never again!
We must remember, "All that is necessary for evil to triumph in the world, is for good men and women to do nothing." God has given us, the Church of Jesus Christ, our marching orders through Scripture; He has equipped his remnant with the tools necessary to fight the battle. His sword is the truth and His Word is the standard.
The surest way to destroy a people is to sever her roots. "Our Founding Fathers knew our goodness came from our faith in Jesus Christ and His Word. They knew that only ‘One Nation Under God' can produce order in society and freedom to individuals. They knew freedom was the power to do as we ought and not to do as we want. They knew there were two enemies to liberty, licentiousness amongst the people and tyranny in civil government. They knew self-government was the key to protect liberty. Only a religious, moral, and virtuous people who put restraints upon their appetites, lusts, and greed can remain a free people. Both the Bible and our history attests to these truths. May we return to these truths before America sinks into lawlessness, tyranny, destruction, and despair." ~Rev. Rusty Thomas

Streets Report from the Killing Fields of Granite City, IL
Death Toll October 18 th - 23rd 2004
Monday - Bag'N Tag -114 past week's "medical waste"
(read God goes Back to School at Granite City High School here and on smallvictoriesusa.com)
Tuesday - approx. 28 babies killed IN, IA, MO, IL. Chatham Bible Group, Springfield, IL Catholic Group stood for the least of these.
Thursday - midnite abortions- 9 babies killed IN, MO, IL 1 saved - 28wk old baby from Centerville, IL. Mother tearfully told proclaimers, she couldn't bring another baby in the world, she already had three children, under the age of three, Angela told her, "Honey, I have eleven babies. I had four children, under the age of four at one time. God provided then and He is providing now. Lean on His strength, not your own understanding." She agreed to an ultrasound and we gave her baby supplies, she agreed to stay in touch and thanked us and left. St. Aloyious, Springfield, IL did a Jericho march and kept a prayerful vigil around these gates.
Two lost and angry teenagers, Jamie and Sarah, stood on the sidewalk in front of Hope(less) holding hand-made "pro-death" signs. They were smoking, cursing, and yelling at anyone who would listen. Both girls had mega body piercing and tattoos. Underneath all that they appeared to be beautiful girls just crying out for real love and attention. Both blamed God for everything that has gone wrong in their lives. Sarah claimed to be an atheist now and mother to an 18 mo. old. Both were formerly in a Baptist church. Proverbs 8:36 "All who hate me love death." Deathcamp directress Sally Burgess marched onto the sidewalk accompanied by chief butcherette Toni Bautsch a.k.a "grandma." Toni admitted in court depositions she helps kill the babies, and her grisly tasks include: "[handing] Yogendra Shah the instruments to pull them out." Two other butcherettes, Cheryl Daniels and Latoya, cheered these two girls on and encouraged them to come back and bring a good crowd. This was fresh meat for Sally B.
Friday - 34 babies killed 1 save -(MO.) IN, AK, KY, TN, MO, IL. Cold rain greeted the proclaimers on these front lines, but praise and worship went forth as the "Debra's" of our day quoted Scripture to the mothers and fathers marching into this extermination camp and read the Word into the microphones hanging off the deathcamp so the Good News would bless those inside.
Saturday - 33 killed 2 saves IN, AK, KS, MO, IL. We arrived a little before 7:00 a.m. Four cars from the previous day were already inside. A mother from Missouri pulled up, this was her third day. She was holding her crotch area and moaning, she could barely walk. The man next to me said, "What's wrong with her?" "She's delivering her baby in her pants.“ He expressed a look of shock and said, "Oh my God, this is horrible."
Sixteen deathscorts were in place scoping the area for the next victims. They hovered over the cars and accosted anyone walking near this aborturary. Their appetite for fresh blood is never satisfied it seems. Isaiah 59:7 "Their feet rush into sin; they are swift to shed innocent blood." Three deathcamp guards were swearing out the death warrants for these innocent babies. One black-American family came out and told the lifesavers they didn't kill their baby. An on-site ultrasound introduced Whitney to her 14 week old (presumed) baby boy. Doctor follow-up appointment was scheduled and transportation was worked out among the proclaimers for Whitney. We gave her some baby supplies and prayed with her and her family. They thanked us and left.
Once again, Sarah and Jamie, the teens from the other evening returned, donning a yellow vest emblazoned with "Poor-Choice", they were now official deathscorts. They were scared to death, they had no idea what they were supposed to do. They stood up against the walls of this deathcamp, or on the tailgate of a pickup truck parked on the emergency room parking lot adjacent to the killing field and chained-smoked, mostly just passing the time. Lifesavers were able to dialog and pray for them.
Suburban Baptist Church of Granite City was doing a city wide prayer walk and two prayer warriors stopped at this altar of child sacrifice and prayed with proclaimers.
No local clergy present this week.
In total 130 babies were killed, 6 babies were saved. 1121 babies have been saved since January 2000, and 16 babies have been adopted!
Battle Fronts- Three decades ago the abortion war broke out. No one would have dreamed the horrible destruction to come. 700,000 pre-born children died the first year of the war, their bodies dismembered and thrown out with the trash or flushed into the sewer systems. A small group of Americans felt the cold spirit of murder creep into our nation and suffocate the moral decency of people who were united as "One nation under God." They knew our country could never survive such an assault, and they began to build an army for battle against this deadly thing called abortion. There would be many battlefronts as the war of life and death raged.
Some would be called to fight on the political front, holding politicians responsible for their stand and forcing them to choose their side. These soldiers would be much needed if our nation was ever to continue as a world power. A nation that kills its own children at the rate of 4000 a day can hardly be respected in the eyes of the rest of the world.
On another part of the battlefield, many would spend hours and hours developing literature to educate the public about the horrors of this war. Another crucial part of the army would lead their troops into the streets of America. These warriors would not only stand with signs and cry out to young women going into the death camps; but many would literally make their bodies a living sacrifice, blockading the doors of the so-called "clinics" that make their money slaughtering defenseless little children
Others would open homes for un-wed mothers. Adoption agencies were working to see children placed in loving homes. There would be other ministries that minister to and help pick up these broken women after they kill their babies.
Yes, the army would grow as the women who would choose to kill their children. This would be a powerful battlefield as the battle raged. The Lord God would lead them in battle as long as they stood for Him.
Years have come and gone and the killing continues. The militant feminists are screeching chants of death in the streets, and the militant homosexuals have joined them. They fill political conventions with their candidate's name attached to their "pro-choice" signs. Every child that has been mutilated in this war cries for justice, but there is none. As we sit in front of our televisions cheering our favorite baseball or football teams, it seems as though gods are playing.
When I see the throngs of people in those ball parks, I am reminded that every three and a half weeks enough babies die to fill the Metrodome. Their silent screams torment those of us who continue to do battle daily for our children and our nation, yet see empty churches when a pro-life speaker comes to speak. It seems that our priorities are out of kilter, and our nation is self-destructing. This army of warriors for life is so important if we are to have any future at all. What kind of a nation are we leaving to our children and grandchildren? If we don't "feel led" to fight for the unborn that we cannot see, perhaps we might find the importance of joining the battle for the children who sit across the dinner table from us; that is, if there are still families who actually have dinner together! The feminists have done their best to tear apart any form of family life. We need to join the army and fight to the bitter end. As the song goes, "God is watching us," but I don't believe He is at such a distance that He is not weeping over what we have become.
There are many battlefronts in this war- where are you serving? But you see in serving on these lines we are only treating the symptoms, we're not attacking the core of abortion! The only way abortion will come to an end is when the Church of Jesus Christ confronts the enemy head on. We're not here to play a good game, and there are many ministries and prolifers that are, or to have a good war- we're here to win the war! Revelation 3:19.

Sin of Tolerance - the church is full of it. Why do you think so much judgement is being poured out on our nation? There is so much ungodliness in our leadership. Our churches are full of sin and our leaders look the other way. Instead of telling them the truth, we are loving these people straight to hell. Tolerance is hate, not love. Do you know why God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah? Because the church was tolerating the sin.
God has always been intolerant toward sin! His Word says: 'Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil....'(Isaiah 1:16).
Tolerance, in one sense, implies the compromise of one's convictions, a yielding of ground upon important issues. Hence, over tolerance in moral issues has made us soft, flabby and devoid of convictions. ~ Billy Graham
In the world it is called Tolerance, but in hell it is called Despair, the sin that believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing, and remains alive because there is nothing for which it will die. ~ Dorothy Sayer
Down through the halls of eternity echoes the cry of nations that once achieved towering heights of greatness, but now lie in the ashes of their own degradation. Nations that rose to world power in times of oppression fell to shame in the sins of their prosperity. Nations that did evil in the sight of the Lord caused their people to follow the ways of idolatry, leading them down the road to hell and destruction.
The generation of Noah's day drowned in the sins of their violence and unbelief, mocking God's man as he preached Repent or Perish. Genesis 7:23. The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah are buried beneath ashes of God's judgment because of their perverted and repulsive sin of homosexuality. God sent two angels to destroy Sodom because of this sin. They met Lot sitting in the gate and he begged the angels to stay the night at his home with his family. Genesis 19:1-5 & Genesis 19:15, 24.
The mighty towers of Babylon are buried in the dust of time because they chose to turn from the true God of Daniel to the gods of paganism. Isaiah 21:9. The ruins of the great Roman Empire are a reminder and warning to those that persecute the Jew and to wicked men who, like Nero, tried to wipe out Christianity.
Nation after nation, generation after generation, we seem to forget that history truly repeats itself. God created the home to be the foundation of a nation, and as the home goes, so goes the nation. But today, we can truthfully say, "As television and movies go, so goes the home and nation." Many Christian homes have become garbage dumps for the R and X-rated filth that comes straight from hell, thanks to movies and the Internet.
Many of our churches have switched partners and are dancing to the tune of a social gospel that places more importance on telling members how to get out of debt or get along with their spouse than on saving souls for eternity. Taxpayer-supported schools have become hangouts for a generation of violent, disobedient, and sexually active children. What else could we expect, since God is no longer welcomed there or anywhere else?
In years past, serial killers and mass-murderers were shocking and rare occurances. Now it seems as if there is another terrible crime spree reported by the news media on a weekly basis, and sadly, we are no longer shocked by it. We have become tolerant.
Since 1973, when the murder of American babies became legalized, more than 40 million unborn children to date have been slaughtered by butchers that dare to call themselves doctors. Medical laboratories are attempting to clone human babies for the purpose of harvesting their healthy body parts. Current news reports have some labs already claiming success.
My friend, the judgment of God hangs over America like the judgment that hung over Sodom and Gomorrah just before their final destruction. America , like all backslidden nations of the past, has been warned by a merciful and gracious God to repent and turn to Him. The same warning that Belshazzar saw written on the walls of Babylon still falls from the lips of a few preachers in churches throughout America. Daniel 5:25-27.
God never changes nor will He apologize for the destruction of past evil nations. America has a rich heritage of God-honoring, Bible-believing men and women who sought and received God's wisdom and guidance. God's mercy and grace have been freely given, making the United States the waelthiest, most powerful, most charitable nation in history.
But God will not be mocked. Americans can choose the path our nation will follow. Will we go the way of sinful past nations or will we choose God and His righteousness? The choice is yours.
Billy Graham, "If America doesn't repent, God will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah."
"And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us, we will not fear, for God hath willed his truth to triumph through us. The prince of darkness grim, we tremble not for him, his rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure; one little word shall fell him. God's truth abideth still, His kingdom is forever."

"Seminarians for choice," the sign read outside the Hope Abortion Clinic. Kerry bumper stickers on Catholic cars. Mixed messages that we're getting from the Catholic Church and leaders. John Kerry left his faith outside the door. He knows who butters his bread. It's all about $$$. Unfortunately there is silence in our churches and from our supposedly pro-life leaders. When it comes to the bottom line, they vote their pocketbook. Their god is their appetite, Philippians 3:17-20. Our churches have turned into refrigerators preserving the Christians as they are, instead of being a toaster and heating their congregation up to "Go ye out into the world..." to do the Great Commission as God commanded. Instead of following the Bible's teachings, they have twisted them. Instead of pop-tarts, they are popsicles. Some of our churches are so cold and silent that they turn into meat lockers. They have turned into city morgues. The sign outside should read, "You stab ‘em, we slab ‘em."
Thank you to the few churches that have shown up for the battle, and to the few pastors that have led some of their flock to this gate of hell in Granite City, IL. Instead of lying under the moral rubble across our land, they've decided to join that remnant that God has chosen to be a light at the end of the tunnel with the pending collapse of our civilization.
The Good News is that God saves inspite of ourselves. Be encouraged faithful remnant of God. Romans 11:5, "So too, at the present time there is a remnant."
John Kerry says, "I'm Catholic, but I believe in a woman's Constitutional right to choose." How should Christians respond? It is one thing when God-less, secular people try to dehumanize the unborn to support their view of abortion on demand. It is quite another matter when these same people attempt to distort scripture and church history to fit their agenda. There is not a legitimate "pro-choice" position that can be derived from the Bible. To support this position, it would be necessary to use text out of context, ignore the Bible's attitude toward the young and innocent, and be ignorant of the history and tradition of the church.
God calls each of us to defend the innocent. Christians should elect leaders who share the biblical view of abortion and support groups working to make abortion unacceptable in our country. God will change the hearts of those promoting the genocide of our nation.
What does it mean to be a pro-life Christian? What one perceives the battle to be will determine how he fights it!
Education: If you perceive abortion to be primarily an educational issue, then you will do all that you can to educate people, helping them realize that life begins at conception. The problem is, many in our nation already know this fact, but they believe a mother's right to choose trumps a child's right to live. It isn't about education!
Politics: If you perceive abortion to be primarily a political issue, then you will spend your time and money attempting to elect Republicans to make abortion illegal once again. However, politics is the art of compromise. To be successful, you must compromise God's Word to get His work done. This is never a good idea! It isn't about politics!
Economics: If you perceive abortion to be primarily an economic issue, then you will do all that you can to help those seeking an abortion to find financial help to see their baby to term and beyond. The problem is that most mothers seeking abortion just want to get it over with and get on with their lives. It isn't about finances!
Compassion: If you perceive abortion to be a compassion issue, then you will do all that you can to set up crisis pregnancy centers so that those seeking abortion instead choose life. The problem is that over 80% of the patients in crisis pregnancy centers are not abortion-minded. Those seeking abortions don't go to crisis pregnancy centers. It isn't about compassion!
Gospel: If, however, you perceive abortion to be a Gospel issue, then you will call the Church of Jesus Christ into the streets to stand in the gap on behalf of pre-born children. If it is a battle between the "seed of the serpent" and the "seed of the woman," only the Church of Jesus Christ can crush the head of the serpent. The gates of hell cannot prevail against her! Abortion is preeminently a gospel issue!
It is only when we bring the battle to the streets that the battle may be won! The devil is robbing, killing, and destroying God's heritage (children, Psalm 127) while we sit by trying to educate, negotiate, buy off, or be compassionate with God's sworn enemy. We have done everything but fight the devil and his lies with the Word of God.
Theology must become biography in the streets. The gates of hell cannot prevail. Abortion will come to an end in America when the Church of Jesus Christ makes up her mind it will come to an end—not one second sooner! ~Flip Benham
I am an American. I am endowed by my Creator with the inalienable right to life. Just like you, and every other American. You know who I am. Now that you can see my face, will you use your voice? Please tell America, I am an American too. America, it's time to protect your children again. ~unborn child
