Field of crosses grows as aborted babies' blood flows
One by one, as tiny children were aborted at
Bakersfield's "Family Planning Associates" abortion
chamber last week, white crosses were placed on the
lawn of the LifeHouse pregnancy help center across
the street in memory
of each child who had
just been violently
Wright finally left late
Tuesday afternoon, he
looked out over the 64
white crosses and
waved, as a mocking
gesture of honor to
his innocent victims.
But at least 11 of
victims (and possibly
as many as 18 or more) were still alive, as God spoke
to the hearts of their mothers through the ministries
of Christians on the sidewalks and at the LifeHouse.
Here are some of the accounts of how God touched
lives last week:
Amy Palmquist* adds another cross to the memorial as another woman leaves
after aborting her child.
Abortion seemed like the only option for
"Mirabel" after she and her boyfriend had a big
fight. Mirabel asked her father to drive her to a
"doctor's appointment" without telling him that the
appointment was for abortion.
As Mirabel and her father parked at the abortion
chamber, Maria offered literature to them and brought
them to the LifeHouse to watch a video about abortion.
Mirabel was shocked when she saw how developed
her 10 week baby was. After watching the video, both
Mirabel and her father were horrified by abortion and
determined not to allow the child to be aborted.
As Mirabel and her father left the LifeHouse, they
noticed "Magdalena" standing in the FPA abortion
chamber's parking lot. Magdalena's friends were
trying to convince her not to abort her baby.
Mirabel and her father joined in the discussion,
pleading with Magdalena not to abort her baby. After
several minutes, Magdalena abruptly fled from the
group of people who were trying to help her, running
up the stairs into the abortion chamber's waiting room.
Mirabel and her father, upset over Magdalena's
decision, sat in their car hoping that Magdalena would
change her mind. When Magdalena came back down
the stairs and left, Mirabel and her father drove away,
thankful that Magdalena's child was still alive.
When "Esperanza" told her doctor that she was
pregnant, her doctor said that she would lose
her workman's compensation. Although
Esperanza attends a local Catholic church, she didn't
see any way to avoid abortion.
Outside the abortion chamber, Terri* and Alicia*
talked to Esperanza and provided her with literature
about abortion and fetal development. Esperanza
decided not to abort her child that day.
A few days later, she consulted with a lawyer who
assured her that her doctor was wrong to tell her that
pregnancy would cause her to lose her workman's
When Esperanza found out that a friend of hers
also intended to abort her baby, Esperanza shared with
the friend the literature Terri had given her outside the
abortion chamber. The friend decided against
abortion. "I saved another baby," Esperanza happily
told Alicia a few days later.
After struggling with numerous forms of satanic
oppression including drug addiction, "Shandi"
recently found victory -- with help from the
Missionary Baptist church she attends. She was scheduled
to be baptized last Sunday to celebrate her new life in
Christ, but then she found out that she was pregnant.
Shandi felt that experiencing an unplanned pregnancy
during this time in her life would be a setback, so she
informed the church that she would need to delay her
baptism, and she scheduled an abortion to destroy the new
life God had given her.
After the abortion, as the rain fell down from heaven
like God's tears, Shandi's eyes were opened and she
recognized her sin. Filled with grief, Shandi left the
killing center, as Terri stood on the sidewalk holding a
cross to honor the brief life of Shandi's baby. "Call my
baby 'Rain,'" Shandi lamented to Terri, "because I'll never
do this again."
Terri hugged Shandi as they prayed together for God's

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from Your presence,
And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.
Then I will teach transgressors Your ways,
And sinners shall be converted to You.
Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God,
The God of my salvation,
And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
O Lord, open my lips,
And my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it;
You do not delight in burnt offering.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
A broken and a contrite heart--
These, O God, You will not despise.
Ask God to break your heart for the volumes of innocent
blood shed in our community and nation, anticipating
deliverance from bloodguilt through the innocent blood of
Jesus, defend us against the devil's accusations and
deceptions as we surrender ourselves to be used by You.
Convict the hearts of the abortionists and staff of the
FPA abortion chamber. Let every tiny foot and hand of every
aborted baby they see be a testimony to You, the One who
created them and gave His life for them.
Protect "Shandi" from any attacks of the devil and
restore Your purpose in her life as she seeks to die to her
sins through Your power.
Let Your purpose be fulfilled in this nation as we mourn for
the babies who have been slaughtered and repent for allowing
the killing to continue. You are the Victor! The devil's
agenda will be defeated!
Abortion chamber employee quits,
testifying to the power of the "Passion"
