Sixty-five children die in Bakersfield
Where is the outrage?
Kenneth Wright aborted 65 babies on Tuesday,
June 26, according to a staff member of the Family Planning
Associates abortion mill. But at least two children were saved
from abortion through the "pregnancy evangelism" ministries on
the sidewalks outside the abortion chamber and at the LifeHouse
pregnancy help center across the street.
Terri* began ministering on the sidewalks at 7:30 in the morning;
after 5:30 pm, when Terri finally left, many cars still remained
in the parking lot. A total of ten Christians (out of over half
a million people in the Bakersfield metropolitan area) took some
time out of their busy day to participate in the pregnancy
As Terri talked to the mothers entering the killing center, she
thought of Andrea Yates, sitting in a Texas jail awaiting her
penalty for killing her five children. She challenged the women
to realize that a mother's desire to kill her own child is a form
of temporary insanity, and that after the abortion they would
regret what they did to their own child, just as Andrea did.
One young woman who had scheduled to abort her child told Terri
that she had changed her mind, and she would now keep her baby.
A 22-year old woman came with her boyfriend to the LifeHouse for
a pregnancy test. The couple told Terri that they attend a large
local Foursquare church. However, the woman said she would abort
the baby if she finds out she is pregnant. But before she found
out that her test was positive, Terri showed her and her boyfriend
a video about abortion. After viewing the video, the woman said
she couldn't go through with an abortion.
At the end of every abortion day, a pickup truck comes to take away
a box containing the tiny mangled corpses. But this time, the truck
driver was delayed inside the abortion chamber, apparently waiting for
the last few bodies to be packed into containers. The abortionist left
at about the same time, having washed the blood from his hands but
not from his heart.
The box containing these 65 children will be delivered to a
laboratory in Long Beach. To try to grasp the magnitude of this
holocaust, take a glimpse at some ghastly pictures taken in this lab
(available online at http://www.operationrescue.org/abortion/deathcamp.asp).
Update: Over the past few weeks, Tim and Terri went through a great
deal of turmoil to try to become guardians for "Ruth," 16, and her
infant child. Ruth has now been reunited with her young child, as
they both live with a non-Christian foster family. Ruth had been
influenced to decide to abort her baby again, but thankfully she once
again changed her mind. Please continue to pray that she will
surrender to God.
