Praise God! Three saves this past week! Many wonderful articles below. Please read on.
On Friday April 16, an estimated 15 children died inside the Rockford abortion mill. A sidewalk counselor was able to explain briefly to two of the clinic nurses about the new pro-life state laws that have recently been passed. The workers listened without saying a word.
The first case from Nebraska outlaws some types of abortions because of the excruciating pain it causes a child in the womb. Here is a link for more information. The second law that was explained to the clinic nurses is a http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2010/apr/10041309.htmlNorth Dakota law that bans decapitating a child in the womb or crushing a child’s skull http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2010/apr/10041402.html
As these nurses were walking into a building to participate in the killing of children, it was hard to tell if the facts about these new laws to protect children in womb had any effect on them as they both remained stone-faced as they listened. But through out the morning as 15 children were brutally, painfully, killed and dismembered, it is hoped that these nurses may have had a spark of conscience because the merciless and inhuman things they are doing to children are being outlawed in other parts of the country.
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud. Proverbs 16: 18-19
It was a sad spectacle to see two people who showed up at the mill this morning to promote abortion and try to give away free condoms.

It was sad to see this abortion-promoting couple try to pass off their condoms to a group of young people who came to the mill to pray for life.
These Christian kids stood their ground with "grace and truth", and the condom pushers sulked away.
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7: 14
One young couple scheduled for an abortion this morning did turn away from these people promoting abortion; they humbled themselves, walked away from the killing center, turned from the wickedness of abortion, and chose life for their child.
We can all take heart that at least one child was saved from abortion in Rockford this morning. We can also pray for the children who died and for the repentance and healing of their parents.
On April 21, an estimated 14 babies were killed inside Rockford‘s abortion mill. Today was a grim day for children in Rockford because the out-of-state late term abortionist paid a deadly visit to Rockford‘s killing center.
It was noticed that at least half of the cars that drove into the mill parking lot had Wisconsin license plates. We believe one of the reasons fewer Rockford residents are choosing to end the lives of their children at Rockford‘s abortion mill is because of the work of two local web-sites.
Rockfordprolife.com and prolifecorner.com have documented and exposed the years of hatred, vicious bigotry, racism, anti-Christian malice, and the posting of medical information in the windows of the clinic building.
The thousands and thousands of people these web-sites have reached with videos and stories have informed a large number of people in Rockford about the evil that motivates the killing of children in the womb that takes place at Rockford‘s abortion mill.
Please do what you can to share these web-sites and this newsletter with others. When some people see the depraved, poisonous, and malignant attitudes of this clinic and its supporters, they can clearly see through the lie of abortion.
The noxious atmosphere of this clinic seems to be affecting the clinic nurses as well. It looks like a new nurse or two have begun working here recently, and a couple others have left. When we see these nurses first start working at the mill, they like to walk in smiling to show us how much they like their job.
But it only takes a short time until we never see those smiles again. The nurses generally drive into the mill lot with angry looks, get out of their cars, and walk into the mill with expressions that are fitting for someone who is about to participate in the killing of a child. They look callous, hard, and depressed.
Through the grace of God on the sidewalk, it’s a different story. Prayer was the order of the day. Serious, faith-filled, sustained prayer surrounded the killing center this morning. Sidewalk counselors were able to offer love and support to the mothers entering the mill, and by the grace of Jesus Christ, two mothers chose life this morning at the Rockford abortion mill.
Love, faith, and prayer will one day bring an end to the killing of these innocent children in Rockford. But until that day comes, please continue to pray, work for life, and share the truth about this evil place with everyone you know.

Another Undercover Video Shows Kentucky Abortuary Failing to Report Child Sex Abuse
LOUISVILLE, Kentucky, April 21, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – As part of the latest installation in a long stream of evidence against abortion centers nationwide, the student-led pro-life group Live Action released footage Wednesday of Kentucky’s only abortion provider, EMW Women’s SurgicalCenter, ignoring the sexual abuse of a child and giving misleading abortion counseling.
The footage was taken by Live Action President Lila Rose and actor Jackie Stollar, who posed undercover as minors, with Rose telling the staff that she was 14-years-old and impregnated by her 31-year-old “boyfriend."
In the video, the EMW counselor named “Wendy” determines that Rose is “14 to 15-weeks pregnant,” and Rose expresses that she wants to keep the situation secret from her parents. Though Rose gave no indication that she would face abusive parents, the clinic directs Rose to call Louisville attorney Mickey Adams so that she can obtain a judicial bypass around Kentucky’s parental consent law and avoid parental knowledge of the abortion or sexually abusive relationship.
In the state of Kentucky, sex between a 14-year-old and a 31-year-old is rape in the third degree and would reasonably be considered sexual abuse of a child, which must be reported to law enforcement immediately. The clinic failed to ask the questions necessary to file a child sexual abuse report, and did not communicate to Rose about the illegal or dangerous nature of her sexual relationship.
Instead, "Wendy" assures the girl by telling her that "we have minors in here all the time" and that the lawyer "doesn’t think it’s gonna be a big deal getting you a judicial bypass."
Rose, a UCLA student, says this sort of disregard for the law is typical at abortion centers.
“In abortion clinics across the country, our undercover videos document the widespread cover up of sexual abuse. Abortion clinics like EMW in Louisville center attempt to fast track underage abortions on vulnerable girls, shut out parents, and blatantly ignore their legal obligation to report the sex predator to police,” says Rose.
Live Action has previously released videos of statutory rape cover-up at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in Bloomington, IN, Indianapolis, IN, Memphis, TN, Birmingham, AL, Los Angeles, CA, Tucson, AZ, Phoenix, AZ, and Milwaukee, WI. Prompted by a Live Action video, the Alabama Health Department placed the Birmingham clinic on probation after conducting its own investigation, which found 9 legal violations.
Rose urges officials in Kentucky to follow suit. “State authorities need to investigate this Louisville abortion clinic and hold them accountable to the law,” Rose insists. “Until they do, young girls will be put at risk of continued sexual abuse.”
North Dakota Measure Seeks to Ban Decapitation, Skull Crushing during Abortions
MINOT, North Dakota, April 14, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A measure to prohibit physicians from decapitating and crushing the skulls of live unborn children during abortions is seeking clearance to begin gathering signatures for the November ballot, a North Dakota grassroots pro-life organization has announced.
Daniel Woodard, head of North Dakota‘s Stop Decapitation Network, filed the paperwork to the North Dakota Secretary of State and Attorney General on Tuesday. The group aims to collect 12,844 signatures by August 4 in order to place the measure on the 2010 ballot.
"It’s unconscionable and unthinkable that any physician who claims to care for the health of others would remove the heads of children or crush them and toss them in the trash," Woodard told LifeSiteNews.com in an interview Wednesday.
Woodard said that he was inspired to pursue the ballot initiative after reading the quotes of abortion doctors who, in federal court hearings regarding the partial-birth abortion ban, testified to decapitating and crushing the skulls of unborn infants in other types of abortions. Woodard’s measure would apply not only to partial-birth abortions, but also to abortions inside the mother’s womb.
During a federal district court case out of New York in 2004, abortionist Dr. Stephen T. Chasen said that “the fetal head is extracted by placing the forceps around it and crushing it.” Dr. Chasen went on to say that he did not have “any caring or concern for the fetus whose head [he was] crushing.” Dr. Carolyn Westhoff, another abortionist, said, “For the vast majority of D&Es [it is] necessary either [to] crush or collapse the fetal skull.” She told the judge she does not use the word “crush” when speaking to her patients.
Chinese Authorities Orchestrate Brutal Sterilization Round-Up of Thousands
By Peter J. Smith
GUANGZHOU, China, April 19, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Chinese authorities in southern China are waging a brutal 20-day campaign to round up 10,000 men and women and have them sterilized for violating the state’s birth control quotas, reports the UK Times Online.
According to the Times, officials in Puning county are exercising coercive methods – such as arresting family members of those who refuse to be sterilized – because the county is getting too populous and making them look bad in contrast to the other counties of GuandongProvince.
Officials are in a bid to get Puning promoted to a second-tier county, but they will fail if they cannot meet all quotas, including the birth quota.
The campaign was launched on April 7 in Puning, which the Times reports has a population of 2.24 million. One village doctor said his team had been performing daily sterilizations from 8 am until 4 am the next morning.
For the thousands who refused to be sterilized, officials have reportedly rounded up relatives, including the elderly, as leverage. Nearly 1,300 people were said to be detained by authorities into cramped conditions, where they would also be re-educated on the rules of the government’s “one child” policy. One detention center was reported to hold 100 people, mostly elderly, within a damp 200 square meter (2,150 sq. ft) room – leaving room only to stand or squat.
“It’s not uncommon for family planning authorities to adopt some tough tactics,” an anonymous official at the Puning Population and Family Planning Bureau told The Global Times.
However, on April 12, just five days into their campaign, Puning officials reported having met half their goal of 9,559 sterilizations, saying they had successfully persuaded people to comply through “education.”
Colin Mason of Population Research Institute described the action by officials as a “kind of second tier action as far as the one child policy goes” after punitive fines and threats fail. Mason spent about two weeks in China in 2009 for an on-the-ground investigation of the Chinese government’s coercive methods to enforce the “one child” policy.
“This is not so much the norm, this is not their first response, but this is what they do to show the counties that they are very serious,” said Mason. Officials generally seek other coercive methods, such as fines, before resorting to the more draconian method of rounding up people for mass coerced sterilization and abortions, which can be bad for public relations and, when severe enough, can provoke riots.
According to the Times report, officials felt pressure to sterilize aggressively in part because families in the countryside were having three or four children. Officials will usually allow a second child for families in the country, if their first child happens to be a girl, but no more.
Mason said it would be very difficult to say what the “breaking point” might be for the Chinese. In general, he said, living with the one-child policy “is just something that they are forced to confront and deal with.”
He added that from his experience in China he found the Chinese had a great deal of “resignation and cynicism” toward the government as they carry on in spite of it.
“People are going to try to have the children that they want, and they are going to try not to get caught, and if they do get caught they are going to try not to pay the consequences for it.”
