Parking problem provides opportunity to save baby

Bakersfield's "Family Planning Associates" abortion chamber was busier than
Abortionist Vernon Wagner

FPA Abortionist Vernon Wagner

usual last Monday, apparently because many women had been rescheduled from the previous week when a morning power outage left FPA temporarily unable to commit abortions. Terri, Maria and other Christians stood outside offering help and prayers for the women and children entering the place of death. "We would like to help you throughout the pregnancy and after the baby is born," Terri called out to the women as they entered. "God has a plan for that little baby you carry inside your womb, but so does the devil. Who will win today?"

Jesus is Lord emblem on car of an FPA abortion employee

A "Jesus is Lord" emblem displayed on the car of one of the FPA abortion staff members who assists in shedding the blood of innocent children for whom Jesus died.

The abortion staff arrived, some displaying Christian emblems on their vehicles or listening to Christian worship music as they prepared to carry out the devil's agenda to execute innocent children created in God's image.

As abortionist Vernon Wagner arrived, Terri told him "God created your hands, Mr. Wagner, to do good, not evil. Going inside a woman and ripping her baby out of the womb is a terrible, terrible thing to be doing. But God wants you to know that it is not too late to repent. You don't have to keep doing this. Let these babies live!"

Wagner ignored Terri on his way in, but on his way out after a long day of killing, he left his car door open for several minutes, seemingly listening to Terri saying "God still loves you, Mr. Wagner, and the good news is that you doesn't have come back to work next week. God can forgive you, because Jesus died for you! If you ever want to talk, call us at 323-BABY." Finally, the abortionist closed his door and slowly drove away.

At the end of each of the two long days of killing, one crate of babies was carried away, containing the broken bodies of the aborted children. As Maria offered prayers for the aborted children, the truck carrying the crate of babies stopped, waiting for her to finish praying before it drove away.

God used the Christians on the sidewalks (and at the LifeHouse pregnancy help center across the street) to save at least four babies from abortion during this time. To God's glory, their bodies are not packed in a crate, but are still living in the wombs of their thankful mothers.

Here are some examples of how God turned these women around last week:

"Megan," 18, felt like she was just getting her life back together, and another pregnancy didn't fit in with her plans. She and her boyfriend already have a one-year-old child and she didn't want her babies to be so close together. Although the babies' father didn't want her to abort their child, she made an abortion appointment and traveled to Bakersfield from her Tulare County home, bringing two cousins along to provide support.

But when they arrived at FPA, no parking spaces were available. Terri noticed their little car circling around several times, until it finally parked in a lot belonging to another business. Joining Terri on the sidewalk was a woman who wants to adopt a baby because she has been unable to conceive a child. Terri and the woman who wants to adopt a baby approached the car cautiously as it parked. When Megan and her cousins came out of the car, Terri walked up to Megan and asked "are you the one who is pregnant?"

"How did you know?" Megan responded with astonishment.

"Oh, God showed me," Terri answered. Terri offered Megan a packet of literature, including a pamphlet from "" which tells the stories of some of the women who have been killed by FPA abortionists.

While one of Megan's cousins tried to push her to ignore Terri and go to the abortion center, Megan looked at the pamphlet. She noticed the pamphlet's statement that Family Planning Associates is not a licensed medical clinic. "It's not a licensed medical clinic?" Megan asked in astonishment.

"No, it isn't," Terri answered. "Would you like to see how they do an abortion?"

"I would!" Megan quickly answered.

Terri took out her tiny MP3 video player and began showing Megan a 6-minute video which displays how abortion is an act of violence which harms the bodies of both the mother and the child.

Megan was shocked by the video, exclaiming "I can't do that!"

Megan borrowed Terri's phone to call her mom, sharing the news that she had decided against abortion. Megan's mom was glad, because she had been against Megan's abortion decision.

Megan and her cousins traveled back to Tulare County, with Megan's 12-week baby still living in her womb. A few days later, when Terri called to offer additional help, Megan assured Terri that she was no longer considering abortion.

When Terri answered the phone, "Seanita" said "I think I have the wrong number."

"Do you know," Seanita asked, "does it take two days to do an abortion if I'm 16 weeks?"

"Yes," Terri responded. "Why are you wanting an abortion?"

"Well, I have four kids already, and I had my tubes tied after I had my seven year old," Seanita replied. "I didn't even realize I was pregnant until three weeks ago."

"Are you a Christian?" Terri asked.

"Yeah, that's why this is hard," Seanita confessed, explaining that she goes to a non-denominational church. "But I just broke up with my boyfriend and he doesn't want another kid."

Terri shared scriptures to encourage Seanita. "God promises to be a father to the fatherless. What better father than God?" Terri also said she would be willing to adopt the baby. "Is there anything I can do to help you?"

"Just talking to me helps," Seanita responded. "I think I just needed that reasurrance. I know this must be meant to be. But if I feel like crying in the night I will give you a call."

Terri prayed with Seanita, asking God to bless and protect her, and to do His will in the lives of Seanita and her child.

After struggling to care for a baby with spina bifida, 16-year-old "Melita" was devastated to discover that she was pregnant. Knowing that she didn't have the strength to care for another sick baby, she scheduled an abortion, even though she regularly attends a Catholic church and knows that the Church opposes abortion. Melita and her mother came to the abortion center for the appointment, encountering Terri on the sidewalk. Terri used a pocket MP3 video player to show Melita an abortion video while she called a spanish-speaking counselor to speak to Melita's mother.

Terri asked Melita if she would be interested in going to the Bakersfield Pregnancy Center for an ultrasound. Melita said she had been to the BPC before, so she agreed to allow Terri to make an ultrasound appointment for her.

Terri gave Melita a baby blanket and a "Hope for the Future" Bible as she left.

"Janee" drove from her home in Lancaster to abort her baby, but told Terri "I can't go through with it." She was afraid that she might be losing this baby she had intended to abort, because the stress over her abortion decision had caused her to start spotting. Janee told Terri that she was going straight to her doctor in an effort to protect the baby's life.

While Terri was focused on helping Melita and her mother, Terri's husband Tim noticed "Sabrina" standing at the edge of the FPA parking lot looking toward the LifeHouse. "Is there anything we can do to help?" he asked her.

She began to cry, "where were you when I was going in?" Her baby had just been aborted, and now she wished she could go back and save her baby's life.

"I'm so sorry," Tim said, struggling to keep from crying.

Sabrina and her family are Christians, attending church every Sunday and Wednesday. She and her husband already have their hands full with two small children, so she was overwhelmed when she found out she was pregnant again, scheduling the abortion without even informing her husband.

"You have probably heard us telling the women going in for abortions 'God loves you and has a plan for your life, and God loves your baby and has a plan for your baby's life, but the devil also has a plan--to steal, kill, and destroy'" Tim said to Sabrina as she nodded. "What you have heard us say is still true for you. Aborting your baby was part of the devil's plan, but God still has a plan for your life. The devil wants you to cover up your sin, but if you do that you will never experience healing. God wants you to come into the light so that you can experience the healing and forgiveness Jesus paid the price for you on the cross."

Tim shared with Sabrina from 1 John 1 and other passages about the importance of walking in the light, emphasizing that she needs to confess her sin and acknowledge that this aborted child was a gift from God if she wants to walk in God's light. He encouraged her to talk to her pastor and her husband.

Tim prayed with Sabrina before she left, thanking God for the brief life of her child and asking Him to fulfill His plan in the lives of Sabrina and her family.

Tim gave Sabrina post-abortion literature as she left, and encouraged her to call when she needs to talk to someone.

Through her tears, Sabrina thanked Tim, saying "you have been so much help."

Later, Tim called Sabrina's pastor to encourage him to pray for this member of his congregation who was suffering after aborting her child. Although Tim did not provide any information to identify Sabrina, her pastor was extremely offended by the call. "Why are you calling me up just to tell me to pray for a woman in my congregation who had an abortion? I might as well just pray every day for every woman who has had an abortion and that would cover it!"

NOTE: For those who wonder why Tim would have made such a phone call, the answer relates to the primary function of a "pastor": shepherding ("pastor" means "shepherd"). When we minister to a member of a pastor's flock who is considering aborting her child or suffering afterwards, we are performing a shepherding function for the pastor.

Scripture Focus: 1 John 1:5-10

This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

Pray that God will help us to walk in the light, confessing our sins to each other as God cleanses us from our darkness so that we can shine His light on the unfruitful works of darkness.

R. Stanley security guard who believes that 'n----rs' (African Americans) should be slaves

The R. Stanley security guard who said "I think we should get back to slavery. Every household should own at least four n---rs" (referring to African Americans) stands outside the killing center where so many black children are executed.

Chuck Thompson, manager of R. Stanley Security, talks to his white supremacist guard outside Family Planning Associates

Chuck Thompson, manager of R. Stanley Security, talks to his white supremacist employee outside "Family Planning Associates" shortly after the guard's comments were publicized.

Abortion guard advocates slavery

A new guard stationed at Family Planning Associates in recent weeks has been aggressively pursuing an agenda that goes beyond abortion: white supremacy. The guard, who claims that abortionist Vernon Wagner delivered him, attempts to prevent people entering the abortion business from keeping the literature they have received from the Christians on the sidewalks.

When Terri Palmquist of LifeSavers Ministries asked the guard how he can stand for "freedom of choice" while not allowing women to choose to keep our literature, he responded "freedom of choice died a long time ago. I look at it this way: I think we should get back to slavery. Every household should own at least four n---rs" (using the "N" word). Yet the same guard often acts friendly to black men who have brought women to abort their children (following Margaret Sanger's tradition of using black people to destroy their own race).

The guard is employed by R. Stanley Security Services, which has a contract with Family Planning Associates.

Bella leads list of new life-changing movies

Fox Theater sold out for Bella

The Fox Theater was sold out for the premiere of Bella.

Bella producer Leo Severino made a surprise appearance at the end of the movie.

Bella is now showing in Bakersfield at the UA East Hills Mall 10 Theaters. To check showtimes (for any theater, not just in Bakersfield), click here.

"If this film tomorrow disappears and it burns and nobody sees it again, the fact that one baby is alive by the grace of God, I will rejoice in the Lord."

- Eduardo Verastegui, star of Bella

Bella, the movie
Find theaters showing Bella
Bella is a movie about the impact of one person's life--and death. It has already resulted in the lives of several babies being saved. On November 16, a sold-out crowd packed Bakersfield's Fox Theater to watch the movie (as a fundraising event for
Saint Gianna's Maternity Home). After the movie, Bella producer Leo Severino made a surprise appearance, sharing with the crowd stories of babies God has saved through the film. Severino said that Mother Teresa's words "God has not called us to be successful, but to be faithful," inspired him and the others involved in this project to persevere even when they were out of money and it seemed there was no hope for it to be completed.

According to Severino, at least seven babies have been saved so far, "and those are only the ones we know of." In order to maximize the impact of Bella, as many people as possible need to see the movie in the next few days so that it reaches a wider audience. "This isn't about the movie succeeding," Severino emphasized. "We need to make sure that the Ninas of the world get a chance to hear its message" (Nina is the character in the film who is contemplating abortion).

We experience stories similar to Bella every week as we encounter women entering the abortion chamber. But it's the way this story is told, not just the story itself, that sets it apart, as it touches the heart of the issue without ever crossing the line to become offensive. Many people say that the ending of the movie brings them to tears, but for me it was an earlier scene (the little girl with the butterfly, for those who have seen the movie) that did it. If you have friends who are pro-abortion or sitting on the fence, you may want to consider giving them tickets to the movie.

Two other new movies also reportedly have the potential to change people's hearts about abortion: Noelle and Lake of Fire.

But beware of the new movie "Golden Compass." It is presented as an innocent childrens movie but actually has an atheist agenda; the end result of the planned trilogy is that the children kill God so that they can do as they please.
