Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 6 28 2011 – by James – A group of pro-abortion supporters showed up again at Rockford’s abortion mill to block offers of help to mothers in need at the driveway of this killing center. Between encouraging mothers to kill their babies and blocking offers of help to mothers, the pro-child-killing protesters made crude jokes about Mother Teresa and were mocking the pro-lifers who had gathered to read the Gospel of John with comments like, "It’s just words. They mean nothing."
"So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it." Isaiah 55:11
While the group of pro-aborts was present at the mill, blocking help and encouraging mothers to abort, a group of Christians was also present, but they were prayerfully reading the Gospel of John from beginning to end.
The power of the Gospel and grace of God opened a mother’s ear to life this morning. As this young mother was driven into the abortion mill parking lot, the driver slowed down as if he wanted to take some information, but two elderly pro-aborts began screaming at him so he drove into the mill lot.
As the young mother got out of the car, she walked slowly across the parking lot, listening to the words of two pro-life sidewalk counselors. The words that seemed to cause her to stop dead in her tracks were those which told about how much her child in her womb already loves her.
After only a few minutes in the mill and well before the abortionist arrived, she came out. As mom and dad left the mill, again they appeared as if they wanted to stop and speak with pro-lifers, but the raging pro-aborts surrounded their car.
So dad looked directly at a man holding a pro-life sign and mouthed the words, "Thank you." When asked, "How’s the baby?", he gave a thumbs-up!
From the passenger seat, mom looked at the pro-life sidewalk counselor and with a huge smile nodded her head.
Again at this place of death, the Gospel of Jesus Christ brought life and love.
Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 6 27 2011 – by James – Frank Moyer, a retired Lutheran minister from Machesney Park, IL, is starting to become a regular fixture at Rockford’s abortion mill, assisting Wayne Webster in his attempts to prevent mothers from receiving help at the abortion mill driveway.
Pastor Moyer only comes to the mill on Friday mornings when the mobile ultrasound clinic is in Rockford. He has made public statements against the mobile ultrasound clinic so it appears he has taken it upon himself to make sure mothers do not have the "choice" to see a free ultrasound of the baby within them.
For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist. 2 John 1:7
This wolf in sheep’s clothing has written letters to the Register Star in favor of abortion, but the full extent of his culture of death activism was not known until he arrived on the sidewalks of the Rockford abortion mill. This "pastor" has physically pushed a pro-lifer and used very un-Christian language in his attempts to intimidate pro-lifers and promote the Rockford abortion mill that is nationally known for its racism and bigotry.
We ask you to keep in your prayers this man who is working so hard to ensure the killing of children in the womb.
The major share of that violent activity gets identified with an ultra-conservative crowd within Islam. Some nations enact laws to control that behavior of Muslims they find troubling:(Rev. Moyer is trying to make a case for the government to start controlling the Christians and pro-lifers he doesn’t like.)
Such legal bans, perhaps understandable, are unfortunate:
1. They employ the same approach as that used by the oppressors we wish to curtail.
2. We know not to judge all of Islam on the basis of that conservative group! We know they misuse their own sacred writings – and succeed because much of the population under their control are uneducated and are unable to read the Koran for themselves.
What troubles me even more than those activities within Islam(So Rev. Moyer is troubled more by pro-lifers who try to save babies than by the terrorists who kill people every day) are similar activities within Christianity! (He can’t intellectually or morally defend the murder of babies in the womb by abortion so his tactic is to try to compare pro-lifers to radical Islam.)
Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner) – 6 23 2011 – by James – On May 11, 2011, Rev. Frank Moyer, who is a pro-abortion protester, wrote a letter that was printed in the Rockford Register-Star and that contained grossly misleading information. The gist of his letter was that no mobile ultrasound clinic is needed in Rockford.
Every one of the eleven babies saved by the free mobile ultrasound from a vicious and brutal death inside the Rockford abortion mill disagrees with him.
All eleven mothers whose babies were saved by the free ultrasound disagree with him. Especially the mother who had tears of joy in her eyes as she was shouting, "My baby is dancing" when she saw her child jumping about in her womb while receiving the free ultrasound.
The countless mothers with whom pro-lifers have spoken over the years who have said they were denied or not offered a chance to see their ultrasounds before their abortions in the Rockford mill strongly disagree with Rev. Moyer’s heartless statement.
Renee’ Scrivano, a post-abortive mother, has written an open letter to Rev. Moyer below. You can read for yourself what one of many women has experienced inside the Rockford abortion mill. It is our hope that Rev. Moyer will open his heart and mind to the truth that abortion is the killing of a child and the wounding of its mother.
Dear Rev. Frank S. Moyer-
Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 6 21 2011 – by James – The Chicago Tribune has uncovered some shocking facts that abortion mills in Illinois under-reported over 4,000 cases of complications following abortions in Illinois in the year 2009 alone, including six abortion deaths. The state’s system for tracking abortions is so broken that regulators also may be missing more than 7,000 abortions per year.
A link to Pro Life Action League article below:
Some cases found in malpractice court that cannot be found in state records include a case in 2002. A woman’s uterus was torn in an abortion, and she began hemorrhaging, went into cardiac shock, and was hospitalized for 3 weeks. Another mother of 3 experienced seizure symptoms and slipped into a coma following her abortion at an abortion mill. In 2009, a teenage girl suffered respiratory and cardiac arrest and died immediately following her abortion at a north suburban abortion mill.
Just one Chicago abortion mill, Family Planning Associates, said it could not confirm whether it had reported 3 abortion deaths in 1998, 1999, and 2000.
“It’s outrageous,” declared Maurice Stevenson whose wife died in 2002 from infection following an abortion at a mill in Chicago.
All of this raises serious questions about the Rockford abortion mill. This child- killing center that is nationaly know for the racism, bigotry, and anti-Christian hatred displayed in its windows and by its security guards does not give an appearance of professionalism let alonecommon decency. http://www.prolifecorner.com/node/526

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 6 19 2011 – by James – Rockford Mayor Lawrence Morrissey is true to his word. During his tenure as mayor, he has consistently put partisan politics aside and worked for the good of the people of Rockford. After granting temporary permits so the mobile ultrasound could continue to operate in Rockford, Mayor Morrissey has now granted a six month permit for the ultrasound to continue its life-saving work in Rockford.
The challenge to the mobile ultrasound began in April 2011 when Alderman Karen Elyea, tried to get the mobile ultrasound clinic permit revoked.
This turned into a string of embarrassing public gaffes for the Alderman because information she provided the news media and other Aldermen turned out to be completely untrue and was even publicly refuted by the Rockford Police Department.
This is the second failed attempt by the Elyea / Webster team to block help to mothers in need at Rockford’s abortion mill. In January 2010 Webster and Elyea tried to get a "bubble zone" around Rockford’s abortion mill. Again, false information was used to promote this pro-child-killing idea, and again, the city council and public saw through the lies, and the idea miserably failed.
The abortion mill landlord has not had a very productive history in dealing with Mayor Morrissey. In March 2009, Wayne Webster tried to embarrass Mayor Morrissey when Webster used lies to obtain Morrissey for Mayor campaign signs and placed them in the windows of his nationally- known, racist abortion mill.
The media saw through Webster’s dirty trick, and he was again publicly exposed and had to take down all of the signs. This incident may have played a significant part in the loss of the mayor’s race by the candidate Webster was supporting.
What all of this really comes down to is that those who have aligned themselves with the Rockford abortion mill have continually been embarrassed by the lies and vicious tactics of its owner. Those such as Mayor Morrissey who are not intimidated by the evil of abortion in Rockford have become a significant force for good in our city.
During the time Mayor Morrissey granted temporary permits for the mobile ultrasound clinic, six babies have been saved from abortion. It is our firm belief Mayor Morrissey will one day hear from the God and Father of these children whose lives he helped save, "Well done, my good and faithful servant."
Rep. Farrow: Letter to Capitol Police Chief Tubbs
Chief Charles Tubbs
I am writing in reference to recent disturbing events in our Capitol building.
As you are aware, throughout the winter months and now stretching into spring, many citizens of Wisconsin and other states have come to the Capitol to have their voices heard regarding legislation which was being debated. Overall the citizens, legally, were well-behaved but the sheer numbers and volume resulted in a significant disturbance to the Capitol’s operation.
This has continued with the Solidarity Singers who, for the past two months and running, have commandeered the Rotunda at precisely 12:00 noon each weekday and proceeded to express their displeasure at the top of their lungs. For 60 minutes, the lawmakers and staff are disrupted from their daily business and visitors to the building stop dead in their tracks in an attempt to decipher the noise and lyrics that reverberate throughout the building.
The most egregious disturbance occurred this past Tuesday, May 31st. As you know, the American Red Cross was scheduled to hold its annual Blood Drive at the State Capitol, between the hours of 9am-3pm. Dedicated volunteers and medical professionals arrived as scheduled, and began to set up the blood drive. Loyal donors and Capitol staff lined up, waiting to donate blood and potentially save a life. However, they soon found it impossible to complete the task.
In fact, this past Tuesday, the decibel level became so unbearable that the Red Cross professionals were forced to close the blood drive and turn away donors. They resorted to rescheduling for Thursday, June 2nd. It is a travesty to think that selfless individuals, willing to donate their own blood to help another in need, would even be put in that predicament. The issue I raise is not, of course, the ability of the Protest group to express its displeasure. There is no question that they certainly are within their constitutional right to do so. I fully support free speech and citizen engagement in the political process. However, I have an enormous problem when the rights of one group infringe on the rights of all others, or completely deprive the opportunity to utilize our State Capitol.
I have read the First Amendment many times. Interestingly enough, nowhere in the Amendment does it include the word “volume.” There is no justifiable reason that one group should be able to shout down the rights of another – or “sing down”, as the case may be.
Yesterday, I was hoping to speak with you directly and gather more details about what transpired on Tuesday. My staff phoned your office, and requested a return call to discuss this matter. Although I did not receive a response, we did garner some interesting information.
As you know, for many years, the policy regarding use of the Capitol grounds has been quite simple. Each and every group – be it civic, educational, or yes, political in nature – has been required to fill out a permit application. This application is kept on file, to ensure that all activities are on the calendar and both staff and security are aware. Furthermore, the permits prevent scheduling conflicts and possible friction between groups.
I was greatly disturbed to learn that the Solidarity Singers have no such permit. Capitol Police staff confirmed that the group has neither requested nor completed such a form. According to your office, the group has “spoken with you” and both sides have a “verbal understanding.” This is troublesome at best, and downright appalling at worst.
I am further outraged to learn that the American Red Cross did, in fact, complete the permit application process. As in every year past, the group completed the form and followed the policy guidelines flawlessly. The reward for their prudence? To be totally disrupted, and ultimately, forced to abandon their nonprofit event.
Sadly, the American Red Cross is not the only group which has been trampled upon by the Solidarity Singers. In the spring, typically thousands of schoolchildren come from all across the state to visit their State Capitol. They travel on buses, sometimes from several hours away, to tour with fellow students and teachers and learn about our state government.
Unfortunately, over 50 of those groups had to cancel their trips this year, during the height of the protest. Just last week, I had a group visit from my district. I witnessed the children holding their hands over their ears, asking their parents and chaperones, “What is that noise?” and “Can you make that stop?” Meanwhile, the protestors attempted to hand them the ‘Union Hymnal’ and encourage them to pantomime for the TV cameras that happened to be in the vicinity. It was extremely disheartening to see the youthful innocence of children exploited.
The reason for the permit policy is for both the Capitol and security staffs to work in concert with one another and ensure the safety of everyone in the building. As we have seen in the past, failure to require groups or organizations to submit a permit for use of the building, contributed to the state spending an additional $7 million for increased security and repairs to the Capitol.
Again, the Singer group is within their right to be present within their building. They are within their right to make their opinion known through whatever channels they choose – be it speech, whispers, or yes, song. But, they must be held to the same standard as every other group. The fact that you have allowed them to dictate the policy is profoundly sad. I request that you immediately rectify this situation, and require the same process of any organization or group, including the Solidarity Singers, both now and in the future.
This is what consistent policy looks like.
Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 6 17 2011 – by James – A small but active band of elderly pro-child-killing protesters have made themselves a regular presence at the Rockford abortion mill the last few weeks. This group takes turns standing in the abortion mill driveway screaming at mothers not to listen to offers of help from pro-lifers and many times cheering when a mother decides to go into the mill to kill her child. They are truly a ghoulish and macabre sight. The raging pro-aborts got a big surprise today.
One mother who entered the abortion mill parking lot did listen to a pro-lifer call out to her about the beautiful child in her womb. After only a few minutes at the mill, this mother left well before the abortionist arrived and chose life for her baby.
As she was leaving the mill parking lot, the pro-aborts began swarming her car to try to convince her to kill her child. Mom would have none of it as she told them in a loud voice, "No one is going to tell me what to do with my baby!"
Mom and child drove away from the mill alive and happy. At least for a few minutes, the raging pro-aborts were dead silent. Not knowing what to do about about a mother who chose life, one of the pro-aborts decided this would be a good time to pull out her mp3 player and listen to music. She seemed very awkward.
No matter how hard these aging abortion supporters try to get children killed, they cannot stop the power of Jesus Christ, prayer, and Christian love made present by the Rockford pro-life community at this killing center.
