Prayer Needed As We Approach Another Hearing For Rockford's Abortion Mill

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 11-19-2011 – by James – On Monday, November 28, a third phone hearing will take place that could possibly open Rockford’s child-killing center. At the first phone hearing, the lawyers for the State and the mill seemed ready to reach an agreement on allowing the NIWC to reopen.  Something changed at the second phone hearing, and the two sides said there were still differences between the two sides. 

We believe the power of prayer is having an effect on all involved in this process.  Prayer is the most powerful force for good we can use at this point to help protect the women and children of this city.

Please pray:

That God’s will be done concerning the continued closing of the Rockford abortion mill.

For wisdom and courage for the attorneys for the State and judge.

While the mill is closed, mothers in Rockford see this as a sign to choose life.

That during this time the mill is closed, the staff of NIWC will have a change of heart and repent of the killing of children by abortion.

For the perseverance and faith of the Rockford pro-life community and that we do not become complacent.

Those who love me, I will deliver; I will protect those who know My name. When they call to Me, I will answer them; I will be with them in trouble, I will rescue them and honor them. With long life I will satisfy them, and show them My salvation. (Psalm 91:14-16)

With a day fast-approaching on which the Rockford mill may be allowed to kill again, our hope is to turn to the Lord in prayer and then to trust in His ways!

 

Kermit Gosnell’s Wife Considers Plea Deal in Abortion Case

by Steven Ertelt | Philadelphia, PA | LifeNews.com |  Kermit Gosnell’s wife is considering a plea deal similar to the one several of Gosnell’s former abortion center employees have made where they have pleaded guilty to receive a lesser sentence in exchange for testifying against the embattled abortion practitioner.

 
 
Now, attorneys for Pearl Gosnell, who also worked at the abortion center Gosnell ran that had him kill and injure women in failed abortions and kill perhaps hundreds of babies in grisly infanticides by birthing them and “snipping” their spinal cords, say she may pleaded guilty, too.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, F. Michael Medway, her attorney, told Common Pleas Court Judge Benjamin Lerner, in consultation with the district attorney’s office, about the possible plea. Medway asked for a hearing on December 1, saying he will know by then if Peal will plead guilty. Pearl Gosnell is charged with participating in an illegal late-term abortion, conspiracy, and participating in corruption.
The newspaper says her legal situation is different from those of the other former employees because she is the spouse of the main defendant and, under law, spouses can’t be forced to testify against their husband or wife in criminal or civil court proceedings.
Meanwhile, Judge Lerner ruled yesterday that two other former employees, Eileen O’Neill and Madeline Joe, are not allowed to have their cases separated from that of Dr. Kermit Gosnell. Neither O’Neill nor Joe are charged with killing babies in infanticides and, although their attorneys argued the horrifying allegations against Gosnell could unfairly taint their cases, they were not allowed to plea guilty in deals as was the case with six other former employees.
Recently, a sixth former employee at the abortion business run by embattled abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell has pleaded guilty. The latest guilty plea came from Tina Baldwin, 46, who also pleaded guilty to having her 15-year-old daughter work at his abortion facility.
Gosnell, his wife, and staff members face various charges — including eight charges for killing a patient in a botched abortion and killing unborn children in the brutal infanticides that saw him stick medical scissors into the backs of unborn children purposefully induced prematurely so he could “snip” their spinal cords and take their lives. They also face charges ranging from murder to obstructing justice to practicing medicine without a license.
The grand jury released a 261-page report which said the 69-year-old abortion practitioner and his staff killed hundreds of babies in this manner and killed at least two women and injured many more in failed abortions. Gosnell became known in Philadelphia and the Atlantic region as the guy women should go to if they wanted a late-term abortion illegal in most states.
Baldwin, according to the Philadelphia Daily News, pleaded guilty to participating in a corrupt organization, conspiracy and corruption of a minor. The plea will result in reduced sentencing because she will cooperate with prosecutors by testifying against Gosnell on the eight murder charges he faces. Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Benjamin Lerner accepted the plea and deferred sentencing to after the Gosnell trial.
Baldwin, as was the case with other employees who pleaded guilty, assisted with abortions despite having no formal medical training and she faced corruption charges because she got a job for her daughter Ashley, who was helping her mother by giving sedatives to the women getting abortions.
Previously, in a court hearing, 43-year-old Lynda Williams, a former Gosnell staffer, told Common Pleas Judge Benjamin Lerner she understood what she was doing by entering a guilty plea in connection with charges against her. Williams was an unlicensed abortion facility worker at Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society and she plead guilty to two counts of third-degree murder and four related crimes.
The Philadelphia Daily News reports that, in exchange for the guilty plea and cooperation with authorities in their case against Gosnell, Williams would be allowed to serve her state and federal sentences concurrently.
The murder charges came in connection with the botched abortion death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar, who died at Gosnell’s abortion clinic after a failed abortion. Williams also pleaded guilty in connection with one of the babies killed in the infanticides that invovled purposeful live birth so Gosnell could “snip” their spinal cords with medical scissors.
The grand jury report, according to the Daily News, indicates Williams was hired full time by Gosnell ni 2008 to clean instruments but she was soon “anesthetizing abortion patients, performing ultrasounds . . . and dealing with babies born alive while he was not at the clinic.” “It was Williams who actually administered the lethal mixes of Demerol, promethazine and diazepam that killed” Mongar.
“I don’t know if I can do another year,” she told the judge, saying she was struck about how long she would face in prison without cooperating.
Judge Lerner set December sentencing dates for Williams and the four other Gosnell staffers who plead guilty and a sixth Gosnell employee, Tina Baldwin, is expected to plead guilty on Monday. Gosnell, his wife Pearl, and four other defendants are likely to go to trial.
Previously, staffer Steven Massof, who was charged with conspiracy and other charges and was an unlicensed medical school graduate performing medical work at Gosnell’s abortion business, pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree murder and other charges. An AP report indicates the murder counts could bring him a mandatory life term, but the judge in the case could suspend or reduce the sentence if he cooperates with authorities prosecuting Gosnell and other staffers. Massof is charged in connection with the deaths of two of the babies born alive and killed in abortion-infanticides.
Before that, Adrienne Moton, 34, and Sherry West, 52, pleaded guilty for contributing to the deaths as they worked at the abortion facility that had not been inspected by state officials in decades. Moton faces charges of murder, conspiracy, racketeering and corruption related to the death of at least one viable unborn child killed at Gosnell’s facility. She was unlicensed by the state and illegally administered anesthesia to women obtaining abortions. West also faces charges of third-degree murder in the botched abortion death of Mongar.
Moton and West each pleaded guilty to related charges, including taking part in a corrupt organization. West also pleaded guilty to drug delivery causing death.
Mongar died November 20, 2009, after overdosing on anesthetics prescribed by the doctor. Mongar’s family filed a lawsuit against Gosnell’s abortion business seeking damages.
Defense lawyer Michael Wallace said after the hearing, according to an AP report, that West may have administered the fatal dosage of anesthesia that killed Mongar, although he tried to mitigate her death by saying West stayed with her on the way to the hospital following the botched abortion.
“She’s very sorry about the death of that young lady,” Wallace said. “She got caught up in a series of things that probably she did not realize the significance of.”
West (picture at left), who reportedly exposed patients at Gosnell’s clinic to hepatitis C, has been in custody on $2 million bail since her arrest in January and Wallace said she would cooperate with authorities — maybe even testifying against Gosnell.
“She knows she will do time,” Wallace said of the possible 140 years in prison she may receive, which could be reduced if she cooperates.
A third staffer, 53-year-old Elizabeth Hampton, Gosnell’s sister-in-law, pleaded guilty to perjury on October 13 and will be sentenced on December 2.
Gosnell has been charged with eight counts of murder and several of his staff at the abortion center, including his wife and sister-in-law, have been charged as well in the case with assisting in botched abortions, practicing medicine without a license or covering up the actions of those who did. The counts include grisly infanticidesthat involved Gosnell snipping the spines with scissors of babies who had purposefully been prematurely born so they could be killed moments later.
Gosnell and several staffers at his abortion center, including his wife Pearl, were arrested in January after a grand jury indicted them on multiple charges after officials raided his abortion business following a woman’s death and discovered a “shop of horrors” filled with bags of bodies and body parts of deceased unborn children and babies killed in infanticides. Pearl Gosnell, Kermit’s 49-year-old wife who has no medical license, faces a charge of providing an abortion at 24 or more weeks and conspiracy and other charges.
Gosnell has been denied bail while the case against him moves forward. Women have spoken out about their treatment and one woman says she was drugged and tied up and forced to have an abortion.
Authorities searching the facility last year found bags and bottles holding aborted babies scattered around the building, jars containing babies’ severed feet lining a shelf, as well as filthy, unsanitary furniture and equipment.
The grand jury investigation also shows state officials did nothing when reports came in about problems at Gosnell’s abortion center, which has upset incoming pro-life Governor Tom Corbett.
While the trial moves forward, a pro-life group and state lawmakers are pressing for legislation the state House needs to pass that responds to the grisly abortions and infanticides at Gosnell’s facility. Gosnell’s abortion center was inspected only after a federal drug raid in 2010.  It was the first time the facility had been inspected in 17 years because state officials ignored complaints and failed to visit Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society for years.
The abortion industry has been forced to suspend two abortion businesses that employed embattled abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell, who has been the subject of national controversy over his abortion business in Philadelphia.
Following revelations that Gosnell is associatedwith two other abortion centers in Louisiana and Delaware, the National Abortion Federation made the decision to suspend the memberships of both. Atlantic Women’s Medical Services, the Delaware abortion business that employed Gosnell one day a week to do abortions, and the Delta Clinic abortion center of Baton Rouge, have both had their memberships suspended. Leroy Brinkley owns both abortion businesses. Atlantic operates abortion centers in Wilmington and Dover.
 

Rockford Man Reveals The Register Star’s Bias

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 11-18-2011 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – Below you will see a brochure a Rockford man created and has been placing on cars in the Rockford area.  The brochure reveals the Rockford Register Star’s silence concerning the Northern Illinois Women’s Center’sfailure to inform the public of the rest of the story behind the closing of Rockford’s abortion mill and the outrageous bigotry they put in the clinic’s windows on a regular basis. 

 
Could this silence of the Register Star possibly be responsible for placing women’s health at risk by not informing the public of the serious nature of the violations inside the Rockford abortion mill? To our knowledge the public was not informed of the dangers of infections and sexually transmitted diseases (STD) that could have occurred over countless months and years because of the repeated failure of the autoclaves and the sub-standard conditions inside. This doesn’t even take into account the Register Star and some other forms of mediaremaining silent, especially over the  last three years,about the most open, vicious bigotry the city of Rockford has ever experienced,which seems to have been a hallmark of the Rockford abortion mill.
See Video of Bigotry and hate speech shot at “ the region’s sole abortion clinic”. http://prolifecorner.com/node/61
 
What is unique about this expose is the research was done and the brochure was created and distributed by a local man because he cares about the lives and health of the women and children of Rockford and he believes people have a right to be informed about  the truth.
 
We thank God for this good man.
 
 

Gift of Life: Promoting Pro-Life in the Mainstream Media

by Governor Mike Huckabee and David N. Bossie | LifeNews.com | Time and again the pro-abortion movement has successfully teamed up with the mainstream media to get their message out to the masses.  It’s a glaring example of how liberal media bias pushes an agenda.  It is incumbent upon those who believe life starts at conception to fight back for the pro-life cause on the main stage by using the stories all around us that will touch the hearts and minds of Americans.

 
We have teamed up to produce The Gift of Life, an hour long documentary that explores the sanctity of life as a moral issue and looks at the lives of individuals who have been personally affected by the scourge of abortion.  We hear the voice of Rebecca Kiessling, who was conceived in rape and almost aborted twice.  James Robison tells of his mother’s decision to abort him being changed by prayer and a doctor’s conviction.  By the grace of God, those featured in the film were saved from the abortionist, but an estimated 1.2 million children are murdered every year because of the unjust decisions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton.
The prevalence and acceptance of abortion has led to a culture of pessimism and death that manifests itself in many ways, even beyond the womb.  One of the most touching personal stories The Gift of Lifehighlights is that of Chet McDoniel.  Chet was born in January of 1980 with no arms and shortened legs.  Without telling Chet’s parents, the delivery doctor put Chet into the corner of the hospital room and gave him minimal care on the chance that he would die. According to Chet, “[The doctor] said if my body was as mangled on the inside as it was on the outside that I would be better off dead.”  This unconscionable malpractice by a deranged doctor showcases how contempt and indifference toward any life can become contempt and indifference toward every life.  Today, Chet is a successful small businessman and a motivational speaker.  Chet also has brought life into this world by starting a family of his own with his wife.
Another personal story in the The Gift of Lifeis that of Dr. Anthony Levatino.  Years ago Dr. Levatino, a pro-abortion OBGYN, and his wife were trying to start a family but had fertility problems.  By day Dr. Levatino was performing abortions and by night he was on the phone trying desperately to adopt.  Dr. Levatino says in The Gift of Life, “I remember literally being in the middle of a first trimester suction D&C abortion and looking at these pieces in the bag and thinking, ‘God, I’m just throwing these kids in the garbage.’” Dr. Levatino eventually was able to adopt a baby girl and he and his wife were again blessed to at last give birth to a baby boy.
Then tragedy struck when their adopted daughter Heather was struck by a car and killed in front of their home. Dr. Levatino eventually returned to work after the worst nightmare of any parent came true. As he was performing his first abortion since his daughter’s death, Dr. Levatino says in The Gift of Life, “I wasn’t thinking of this as anything special, it was totally routine. I had other things on my mind. And I reached in with that sopher clamp and I pulled out an arm or a leg. I stared at it in the clamp and I got sick.”  Dr. Levatino stopped performing abortions, and now is an ardent pro-life proponent.
The Gift of Lifealso profiles leaders in the pro-life movement.  These exceptional advocates work tirelessly everyday to protect life and to make sure that our just cause never dies.  While we were working with Kristan Hawkins, Executive Director of the great pro-life organization Students for Life of America, she mentioned that one of her field directors was pregnant.  It was a great moment for us to film a 3D/4D ultrasound for the documentary.  Kortney Blythe Gordon, her husband, and her mother-in-law shared what was one of the happiest times of their lives – learning the sex of the baby.  During Kortney’s ultrasound we were introduced to Sophy, the living baby girl in Kortney’s womb.  Tragically, just a few short days later, Kortney and her pre-born baby Sophy were killed in an auto accident while Kortney was attending a Students for Life Conference in Georgia.  Another Students for Life staffer would later die of his injuries from the crash.  This unspeakable tragedy touched everyone associated with this film and we were all reminded how life is truly so precious.  Kortney’s wonderful legacy will be honored in our film forever.
These are just a few of the heartfelt personal tales you will experience in our film The Gift of Lifeand anyone from the most most passionate advocate for life to the most hardened abortion defender will be touched by the humanity these stories bring to the issue. The Gift of Lifebrings the viewer into the real lives of people affected and on the front lines in the abortion debate.  This inspirational film can be ordered right now at http://www.TheGiftOfLifeMovie.com.  Please go to our website and help support this important project today.   
LifeNews Note: Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has teamed with Citizens United Productions President David N. Bossie to host and produce the inspirational pro-life documentary The Gift of Life, which can be purchased today at http://www.TheGiftOfLifeMovie.com.
 
 

The Eyeless "I" Of Assisted Suicide

ProLifeCorner.com – 11-17-2011 – by Editor – We’re posting this excellent article by Mark Pickup of Human Life Matters, located in Canada.  We feel it is so important for everyone to realize the evil of “assisted suicide” that we are placing Mark’s article here in its entirety.  We strongly urge you to go to Mark’s site and leave a comment.  You’ll find a link to his site below the article. Please visit his site often as he is one of the great leaders of the pro-life movement in North America. 

 
 
 
The Eyeless "I" Of Assisted Suicide by Mark Pickup
 
A woman named Paula wrote to me this morning asking about the court case in BC and "natural conclusions to life." Below is my comment to her:
 
"Dear Paula – Assisted suicide is not about pain control. Palliative care in the 21st Century has come so far as to be able to eliminate virtually all physical pain. Assisted suicide is about the illusion of personal control even over death.
 
Death is not a right, Paula, it is an eventuality that will visit us all regardless of what any law may state. It is life that must be protected. All the great human rights documents such as the American Declaration of Independence, the UN’s Declaration of Universal Human Rights and even Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms place the Right to Life as the first legal right. Why? Without the Right to Life assured all other rights become arbitrary and uncertain.
 
A truly progressive and compassionate society is concerned about life with dignity – especially for those who do not have it. Death with dignity is not an event, it is the natural conclusion of having lived with dignity. Dignity is not achieved by witholding water and food or injecting poison into a person’s bloodstream when they are at their lowest point. That is not dignity: It is profound abandonment! We have a right to expect the best palliative care and pain management.
 
Ask yourself how assisted suicide acceptance serves the Common Good? It doesn’t. It will put vulnerable people at risk.
 
The push for assisted suicide is the natural conclusion of personal automony gone amuck.
Gloria Taylor wants assisted suicide for herself which is different from suicide because it obviously requires assistance — a coarsening of some other person’s conscience. The eyeless "I" of assisted suicide does not consider the consequences to others.
 
Autonomy is diametrically opposed to community. The natural conclusion to unfettered autonomy is the right to even self-destruction. That is what is being considered in the BC Supreme courtroom as I write these words. Acceptance of the autonomy of suicide (assisted or otherwise) is to reject the interconnectedness of community. It proclaims with a final shout and sneer, "I am my own island
 
Canada is not 33 million little islands entire unto ourselves. As the 17th Century poet and divine, John Donne wrote "No man is an island entire unto itself. Every man is a part of the continent, a part of the main. … any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee." Only independence and autonomy — the eyeless "I" — sees self and self alone. Interdependence and the interconnectedness of community call for consideration for others — especially the weakest.
 
You see, Paula, I do not have a right to ask or demand something that may hurt others. The independence of the individual must only exist within the interdepence of the community. If the desire of the individual threatens the security of whole then individual desires must give way to the greater interest of the community. Otherwise we are only left with 30-million little islands without a whole of a continent, a nation, a community that protects the interests of the weakest against the interests of the powerful.
 
And so the choice before us is stark, Paula: Independent and autonomy versus interdependence and community. Laws must protect the weakest and that’s what Canada’s law against assisted suicide does.

Ten Reasons Why Homosexual "Marriage" Is Harmful And Must Be Opposed
 
1. It Is Not Marriage

Calling something marriage does not make it marriage.  Marriage has always been a covenant between a man and a woman which is by its nature ordered toward the procreation and education of children and the unity and well-being of the spouses.

The promoters of same-sex “marriage” propose something entirely different. They propose the union between two men or two women.  This denies the self-evident biological, physiological, and psychological differences between men and women which find their complementarity in marriage.  It also denies the specific primary purpose of marriage: the perpetuation of the human race and the rearing of children.

Two entirely different things cannot be considered the same thing.

2. It Violates Natural Law

Marriage is not just any relationship between human beings.  It is a relationship rooted in human nature and thus governed by natural law.

Natural law’s most elementary precept is that “good is to be done and pursued, and evil is to be avoided.”  By his natural reason, man can perceive what is morally good or bad for him. Thus, he can know the end or purpose of each of his acts and how it is morally wrong to transform the means that help him accomplish an act into the act’s purpose.

Any situation which institutionalizes the circumvention of the purpose of the sexual act violates natural law and the objective norm of morality.

Being rooted in human nature, natural law is universal and immutable.  It applies to the entire human race equally.  It commands and forbids consistently, everywhere and always. Saint Paul taught in the Epistle to the Romans that the natural law is inscribed on the heart of every man. (Rom. 2:14-15)

3. It Always Denies a Child Either a Father or a Mother

It is in the child’s best interests that he be raised under the influence of his natural father and mother.  This rule is confirmed by the evident difficulties faced by the many children who are orphans or are raised by a single parent, a relative, or a foster parent.

The unfortunate situation of these children will be the norm for all children of a same-sex “marriage.”  A child of a same-sex “marriage” will always be deprived of either his natural mother or father.  He will necessarily be raised by one party who has no blood relationship with him.  He will always be deprived of either a mother or a father role model.

Same-sex “marriage” ignores a child’s best interests.

4. It Validates and Promotes the Homosexual Lifestyle

In the name of the “family,” same-sex “marriage” serves to validate not only such unions but also the whole homosexual lifestyle in all its bisexual and transgender variants.

Civil laws are structuring principles of man’s life in society.  As such, they play a very important and sometimes decisive role in influencing patterns of thought and behavior.  They externally shape the life of society, but also profoundly modify everyone’s perception and evaluation of forms of behavior.

Legal recognition of same-sex “marriage” would necessarily obscure certain basic moral values, devalue traditional marriage, and weaken public morality.

5. It Turns a Moral Wrong into a Civil Right

Homosexual activists argue that same-sex “marriage” is a civil rights issue similar to the struggle for racial equality in the 1960s.

This is false.

First of all, sexual behavior and race are essentially different realities.  A man and a woman wanting to marry may be different in their characteristics: one may be black, the other white; one rich, the other poor; or one tall, the other short.  None of these differences are insurmountable obstacles to marriage.  The two individuals are still man and woman, and thus the requirements of nature are respected.

Same-sex “marriage” opposes nature.  Two individuals of the same sex, regardless of their race, wealth, stature, erudition or fame, will never be able to marry because of an insurmountable biological impossibility.

Secondly, inherited and unchangeable racial traits cannot be compared with non-genetic and changeable behavior.  There is simply no analogy between the interracial marriage of a man and a woman and the “marriage” between two individuals of the same sex.

6. It Does Not Create a Family but a Naturally Sterile Union

Traditional marriage is usually so fecund that those who would frustrate its end must do violence to nature to prevent the birth of children by using contraception.  Traditional marriage naturally tends to create families.

On the contrary, same-sex “marriage” is intrinsically sterile.  If the “spouses” want a child, they must circumvent nature by costly and artificial means or employ surrogates. The natural tendency of such a union is not to create families.


Therefore, we cannot call a same-sex union "marriage" and give it the benefits of true marriage.

7. It Defeats the State’s Purpose of Benefiting Marriage

One of the main reasons why the state bestows numerous benefits on marriage is that by its very nature and design, marriage provides the normal conditions for a stable, affectionate, and moral atmosphere that is beneficial to the upbringing of children—all fruit of the mutual affection of the parents.  This aids in perpetuating the nation and strengthening society, an evident interest of the state.

Homosexual “marriage” does not provide such conditions.  Its primary purpose, objectively speaking, is the personal gratification of two individuals whose union is sterile by nature.  It is not entitled, therefore, to the protection the state extends to true marriage.

8. It Imposes Its Acceptance on All Society

By legalizing same-sex “marriage,” the state becomes its official and active promoter.  The state calls on public officials to officiate at the new civil ceremony, orders public schools to teach its acceptability to children, and punishes any state employee who expresses disapproval.

In the private sphere, objecting parents will see their children exposed more than ever to this new “morality".  Businesses offering wedding services will be forced to provide them for same-sex unions, and rental property owners will have to agree to accept same-sex couples as tenants.

In every situation where marriage affects society, the state will expect Christians and all people of good will to betray their consciences by condoning, through silence or act, an attack on the natural order and Christian morality.

9. It Is the Cutting Edge of the Sexual Revolution

In the 1960’s, society was pressured to accept all kinds of immoral sexual relationships between men and women.  Today we are seeing a new sexual revolution in which society is being asked to accept sodomy and same-sex “marriage.”

If homosexual “marriage” is universally accepted as the present step in sexual “freedom,” what logical arguments can be used to stop the next steps of incest, pedophilia, bestiality, and other forms of unnatural behavior?  Indeed, radical elements of certain “avant garde” subcultures are already advocating such aberrations.

The railroading of same-sex “marriage” on the American people makes increasingly clear what homosexual activist Paul Varnell wrote in the Chicago Free Press:

The gay movement, whether we acknowledge it or not, is not a civil rights movement, not even a sexual liberation movement, but a moral revolution aimed at changing people’s view of homosexuality.

10. It Offends God

This is the most important reason.  Whenever one violates the natural moral order established by God, one sins and offends God.  Same-sex “marriage” does just this. Accordingly, anyone who professes to love God must be opposed to it.

Marriage is not the creature of any state.  Rather, it was established by God in Paradise for our first parents, Adam and Eve.  As we read in the Book of Genesis: “God created man in His image; in the Divine image he created him; male and female He created them. God blessed them, saying: ‘Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it.’” (Gen. 1:28-29)

The same was taught by Our Savior Jesus Christ: “From the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female.  For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother; and shall cleave to his wife.” (Mark 10:6-7).

Genesis also teaches how God punished Sodom and Gomorrah for the sin of homosexuality: “The Lord rained down sulfurous fire upon Sodom and Gomorrah.  He overthrew those cities and the whole Plain, together with the inhabitants of the cities and the produce of the soil.” (Gen. 19:24-25)

 
 
 
 

An Analysis Of Why Rockford's Abortion Mill Hasn't Reopened

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 11-16-2011 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – We live in a state that is run from top to bottom by pro-abortion politicians.  Illinois has the most lax standards for abortion mills in the country. 
So why is the Rockford abortion mill having such a hard time reopening?  Here are a few reasons.

 
 
1. Arrogance – In the Northern Illinois Women’s Center’s response to the State of Illinois concerning the emergency closing of the clinic by the state, NIWC freely admitted it has been breaking the law.  In one example  NIWC admitted that it did not have a Registered Nurse with surgical experience in the operating rooms during surgical procedures.  This is clearly against the law and is a dangerous situation.  What was the clinic’s response to this illegal and dangerous lack of a Registered Nurse?  NIWC replied to the State, "The clinic states the necessity of a registered nurse for certain procedures is not apparent."  It admitted it broke the law, but it freely admits it doesn’t believe the law applies to it.  This is just one example of the type of arrogance that has prevented it from reopening.
 
2. Ignorance and lies – The out of state abortionists who kill babies in the Rockford abortion mill have known for years that they were breaking the law by not having admitting privileges at Rockford hospitals.  What is their response to this clearly dangerous and illegal situation?  NIWC replied to the State, "There is no evidence that the clinic’s failures in these areas threatened the health, safety or welfare of its patients."
 
This response is dripping with ignorance.  NIWC is telling the state that because it believes it is safe, it doesn’t have to follow the law.  It is also a blatant lie.  In at least one documented case, NIWC’s failure to have admitting privileges at Rockford’s hospitals was extremely dangerous for the life and health of a woman. This type of ignorance and willful deceit does not sit well even in a state that’s run by a pro-abortion state government.
 
3. The Clown Running The Show – Wayne Webster acts as the NIWC security guard, public spokesman, and public face of the Northern Illinois Women’s Center.  The abortionists sign his paycheck.  When decent people, even abortion supporters see the public bigotry, discrimination, and perverse and vicious hatred that have filled the windows and doors of the Rockford abortion mill, they are sickened and appalled.
 
The abortionists try to claim, "It’s only the building landlord not us."  The abortionists have freely chosen to associate themselves with Webster and to remain in a business relationship with him for many years even though they are well aware of his attacks on women, children, people with HIV, Christians, and God.
 
Dr. Dennis Christensen, the abortionist who owns the Northern Illinois Women’s Center, has decided to let a clown run his show and be the public face for his abortion mill.  That is a major reason this state looks at the Rockford abortion mill as a bad joke. 
 

Rockford, Illinois Abortion Clinic Shut Down Two More Weeks

by Steven Ertelt | LifeNews.com | The abortion facility in Rockford, Illinois will remain shut down for two more weeks while the Northern Illinois Women’s Center and the Illinois Department of Public Health continue to wrangle over violations it engaged in that caused its closing.

 
The Northern Illinois Women’s Center in Rockford had its license suspended by the Illinois Department of Health after failing an inspection following up on previous violations state officials found in June. The state told the abortion business it needed a plan of correction and, despite the plan, the corrections had not been sufficiently made and health inspectors still found numerous violations.
The Rockford Register Star newspaper indicated Illinois Department of Public Health officials gave the abortion center a three-page report of deficiencies on September 29 signed by Damon T. Arnold, the director of the state department. The notice says officials “found conditions at (the Northern Illinois Women’s Center) that are directly threatening to the public interest, health, safety and welfare requiring immediate, emergency action.”
Now the newspaper says Eva Byerley, an attorney for the department, told Administrative Law Judge Cynthia Ramirez that she and Harold Hirshman, the attorney for the abortion facility, “have made progress but have not yet agreed on terms” of the settlement. The two plan another conference regarding the settlement for November 28 — meaning no abortions can be done until then.
The resolution of the dispute could range from “revocation of the clinic’s license to allowing the clinic to reopen,” the newspaper says. A potential hearing date has been set for January 4 — even though attorneys had said originally that it was not necessary.
The state health department report found the Northern Illinois Women’s Center abortion business violated the stipulations of the Ambulatory Surgical Treatment Center Licensing Requirements Code and Illinois Administrative Procedure Act, which makes abortion centers abide by the same rules and regulations that apply to legitimate medical centers doing outpatient surgeries.
Some of the violations, according to the newspaper, include not having a registered nurse on hand during abortions, not having a registered nurse supervising other abortion facility staff, not having two physicians with admitting privileges at a local hospital to admit patients when abortions are botched and women need immediate medical treatment, and not having a valid written agreement with a laboratory for lab work.
The abortion center can appeal the decision within 10 days and must file a written response to the state health department within 20 days. The suspension of the abortion facility’s license took effect immediately upon the state health department’s order.
The Northern Illinois Women’s Center is the abortion clinic that, last year, threatened pro-life advocates.
“Sidewalk counselors tell us the facility owner, friends and staffers consistently display extreme perversion and hateful bigotry toward anyone opposing their efforts. In Rockford, it seems they’ve seen it all: eggs thrown at cars, racial slurs, vehicular assault, rubber chickens hanging from nooses in the windows, a nun mannequin placed in a coffin, insults hurled at praying priests, and, in short, an unending stream of mockery and hate directed toward pro-lifers,” Brad Mattes wrote in an article for LifeNews. “Perhaps most shocking was when owner Wayne Webster charged outside with a running chainsaw this summer. Or the sign depicting Jesus Christ raising his middle finger with the words “Even Jesus Hates You” written below. These are just a few examples of what’s been going on there. Truly, it’s difficult to rate which among them is most offensive.”
Mattes continued:  “On Friday, yet another police report was filed outside the facility. According to witnesses, a man escorting a woman into the clinic “pulled his hand out of his pocket in the shape of a handgun and looked directly at the pro-lifers and said, ‘What would you do if I pulled out my .45 and put a bullet in your head?’” Shortly after, Webster came out and taunted one of the pro-lifers saying, “Maybe he should have shot you.”
The license suspension also comes after the Chicago Tribune newspaper released the details of a new investigative report revealing the number of abortions in the state has been massively underreported. Those numbers include six women who have died from botched abortions and 4,000 who were injured.
Although state law on abortion that Illinois adopted in 1975 requires abortion centers to report numbers and complications to the Illinois Department of Public Health , the Tribune found the state system for tracking abortions is so broken that officials are likely missing as many as 7,000 abortions annually.
The Tribune also indicated that Illinois has no process other than the abortion statistics reporting to monitor whether abortion facilities or abortion practitioners have high rates of complications and may be killing or injuring women in abortions. Although Illinois currently tabulates abortions from 26 locations that do abortions in the state, Guttmacher lists 37 places as doing abortions in Illinois.
The newspaper also found that 4,000 women injured by botched abortions failed to have those injuries noted in detail in official reports.

GodMocking Baby-Killers In Rockford IL.

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 11-15-2011 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative For the past 25 years N.I.W.C. (Northern Illinois Women’s Center) the merchants of death could ply their grizzly trade with impunity. Literally getting away with murder, they could do most anything else without fear of the law. Well that was true until Sept 30 2011 when the law caught up with them.

 
 
Some may think the title of this video, "God-mocking Baby Killers" is too strong.  The sad fact is if you watch the actions and words of the landlord of the Rockford abortion mill and his security guard, you will see and hear those who kill babies in Rockford while mocking God and ridiculing human life.
 
The Rockford abortion mill wants to reopen soon.  This video makes it abundantly clear that the child-killing center located at 1400 Broadway is inspired and driven by a deep-seated hatred for Jesus Christ and profound disrespect for and desire to destroy human life.
 
The killing of children by abortion in Rockford and the type of vicious hatred of God that has come from the Northern Illinois Women’s Center for years will take the grace of Jesus Christ and the hard work, prayer, love, and sacrifice of all of us to finally come to a permanent end in Rockford.
 
As you watch the video and you hear Wayne Webster, who is the abortion mill “gofer”, talk to a “Joe”, who is off camera, know that Webster is addressing an old friend of pro-life, Joe Gulotta.  Joe is the author of the excellent book “Pro-Life Christians”.  Joe remains to this day a staunch defender of life.
 
John Kaske, the ex-Rockford police officer and NIWC security guard, is now dead.  Many pro-life advocates prayed for Kaske, as well as Webster, the abortionist, and the staff of NIWC.  We have heard that Kaske repented before he died.  It is our sincere hope that this is true; if anyone can confirm this we would appreciate your input.
 
We want to express our gratitude to the dedicated men and women of the Missionaries to the Preborn, IA for their countless years of pro-life work and for opening their video archives to all of us.
CAUTION: ABORTION SUPPORTERS USE OFFENSIVE AND INAPPROPRIATE LANGUAGE.

TWO MORE WEEKS OF LIFE FOR ROCKFORD'S CHILDREN!

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 11-14-2011 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – A phone hearing was held today Nov 14, concerning the licenses of the Northern Illinois Women’s Center.  On the line were Attorneys Eva Byerley of the Illinois Department of Public Health and representing the Rockford abortion mill was Harold Hirshman of SNR Denton’s Chicago office.  Administrative Law Judge Cynthia Ramirez was handling the case.

In this short phone hearing the Attorneys for the state and the abortion mill said more time was needed to settle some points.  This means a "short status" hearing will be held on Nov. 28th 11:00am.  As a result the Northern Illinois Women’s Center will be closed for at least two more weeks with the possible result being a few dozen children’s lives could be SAVED!

If an agreement is not reached on Nov. 28 a full hearing is scheduled for January 4, 2012, at the State of Illinois Bldg on Clark and Randolph in Chicago.

What all of this means.

In facing the Rockford abortion mill there was the sense of facing a Goliath, a monster that feeds or is driven by money, profit and an underlying agenda of destruction of human life on a scale the city of Rockford has never seen.  The mass murder of babies appeared to be one of the most powerful forces in the city. Not anymore.  They have been stripped naked and are seen as just a bunch of dirty money grubbers who would murder children in the slime of a dirty abortion mill just for a few coins.

Even if they reopen in a few weeks Goliath has been exposed.

There are some dreadful final battles to come and they will be perhaps among the most difficult Rockford pro-lifers have had to face. There may be many more children killed by abortion in this city. Our task is primarily to help awaken people to the nature of the abortion, the horror of murdering children by abortion, and to reduce the number of casualties, and to even be instrumental in bringing forth more beautiful souls, fellow pro-lifers, who will live with us in eternity.  We must keep in mind always the real horizon, the eternal horizon, the vision of the truth that the Lord has won.”  “It is His war.”

Recall that throughout the entire salvation history the Lord prefers to choose the small and the weak of the earth to confound all the powers of the enemy. 

This is why God does not simply drop overwhelming spiritual and material resources into the laps of those who will serve Him in this great war.

The Lord himself will win the final battles of this war, through our weakness and absolute dependence upon Him, regardless of what is happening all around us, regardless of the hardships or pain we suffer.
