Indian man makes the right "choice" for his wife
For the third week in a row, a different anonymous
abortionist came to Bakersfield last Monday and Tuesday
to execute tiny children at the Family Planning Associates
abortion chamber. Christians stood on the sidewalks
outside this death center, offering hope and help to women
deceived by the devil. At the LifeHouse pregnancy help
center across the street, many women came for free
pregnancy tests and other material assistance. The stories
of a few of the women who were touched by these ministries
last week are provided below:
A woman from India who came to FPA with her
husband last week appeared to have little say in the
decision of whether or not her preborn child would
Linda* asked the couple if they were considering
abortion. The man said that his wife was 45 days pregnant,
explaining that she had scheduled an abortion because they
had enough children already.
Linda encouraged them to come across the street to the
LifeHouse so that she could show them a video about
abortion. He agreed to go across the street with Linda,
leaving his wife in the car.
The man became increasingly uncomfortable as he
viewed the video's depiction of the violence which was soon
to be inflicted upon his wife and child. When a baby's tiny
hand was shown next to a dime on the screen, he stood up
and declared "I need to go talk to my wife."
Hurrying across the street ahead of Linda, he quickly
entered the car and told his wife that they needed to leave.
Without any further discussion, the couple left the killing
As "Dena" was being examined inside the abortion
chamber, she was told that she would need to
undergo a two-day abortion procedure, because she
was 14 weeks pregnant. Repelled by thoughts of enduring
such a long process, Dena walked out.
Terri* met Dena on the sidewalk, giving her a gift box
filled with items for her baby. Terri explained LSM's new
"Elizabeth League" effort to support and encourage
pregnant women through the church. "I really do need to
get back into church," Dena responded.
Terri brought Dena to the LifeHouse, along with
Dena's friend "Lucy," who is also pregnant. After Dena and
Lucy watched a video about abortion, Dena said she could
no longer consider abortion as an option.

helped Jan with a
pregnancy test. The results were negative.
When Jan's friend came out of the abortion chamber,
Jan encouraged her to come to the LifeHouse to see the
video about abortion. After watching the video, Jan's friend
told Terri that she would have kept the baby if she had seen
the video first.
Confident in the unconditional forgiveness of Jesus Christ, some Christians
walked into the devil's snare last week by entering the FPA killing center.
Their "testimonies" were prominently displayed on their vehicles, using
witnessing tools such as a "Jesus is the answer" sign prominently displayed
on the dashboard. To learn how Christians can reach such misguided brethren,
read the book Transforming the Gates of Hell
into the Gates of Heaven, available at the LifeHouse.
Judit* gave Jan and her friend a ride to the pharmacy to
pick up antibiotics for Jan's friend, hoping to help her avoid
the risk of post-abortion infection.

"Then He said to the disciples, 'It is impossible
that no offenses should come, but woe to him
through whom they do come! It would be better for
him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he
were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend
one of these little ones.'"
Ask God to break through the hearts of those who
have allowed themselves to become a tool of the devil to
destroy these little ones. Pray that God will help us to
show them the consequences of their actions, not only
for the helpless children, but for their own spiritual
Dear God, please empower us with your strength,
so that even when we feel too weak to continue this
ministry, Your power will work through us to do things
we could never handle.
Draw Dena closer to You, and
help her to turn to You for the strength to make it
through this pregnancy.
Expose the deception of the three anonymous
abortionists who have killed children in Bakersfield in
recent weeks. Help us to find out who they are so that
we can more effectively warn women of the damage they
have caused to other women.
Tonight (Monday, April 14) from 6-9 pm, join us at the
LifeHouse for a pro-life seminar, "Speaking the Truth in
Love: an Introduction to Pregnancy Evangelism."
The seminar is open to anyone who is

pregnant women with the Gospel of Life.
