Dreaded abortion trip blesses mother and daughter
Several women who traveled long distances for their
abortion appointments this week decided at the last minute
not to abort their babies after encountering Christians
outside abortion chambers. As elderly abortionist Kenneth
Wright drove from Fresno to Bakersfield’s "Family
Planning Associates" abortion chamber, women were
driving hours from places like Ridgecrest and Lancaster to
surrender themselves and their babies to the abortionist’s
But God spared the lives of at least one of
the Ridgecrest babies, and probably two of
the Lancaster babies. Even as the Holy Spirit
was working in women's hearts
outside Bakersfield's abortion chamber (and at the
LifeHouse pregnancy help center across the street), He
was saving the life of a Bakersfield woman’s baby in Long
Give God the glory for saving these lives as you read
more about how God turned these women’s days of
tragedy into days of joy:
"Renee" and her mother traveled to a Long
Beach abortion chamber this week, but
decided to cancel the abortion and enjoy their
day together. Renee had decided to abort her fourth
baby (22 weeks old) because she was so overwhelmed
by the responsibilities of being a single parent for her
three young children. The Bakersfield FPA abortion
chamber sent her to their headquarters in Long Beach
because her three cesarean deliveries and size of her
baby made her a high risk for abortion complications.
This was Renee's second attempt to travel to Long Beach for the abortion. A week earlier her van had broken down in Gorman (about halfway to Long Beach).
Anne, who works at His Nesting Place (a Long
Beach church which operates a maternity home and
other pregnancy help ministries) regularly stands
outside the Long Beach FPA abortion chamber
ministering to women. When Renee came to the
Long Beach killing center Tuesday, she tried to suck her stomach in so that it wouldn't be obvious that she was pregnant. But Anne wasn't fooled, showing Renee a baby model which was about the size of the baby in her womb.
Anne learned that Renee
was from Bakersfield, so she called LifeSavers
Ministries so that Renee could talk to Terri* about the
help available for pregnant women in Bakersfield.
Terri learned that Renee's mother had driven
from her home in rural Riverside County to be with
her during the abortion, so Terri asked Renee, "Does
your mom want you to abort this baby?"
"No," Renee responded.
"Does your boyfriend want you to go through
with the abortion?"
"I don't think you're really wanting abortion
either, or you wouldn't be talking to me, right?"
"I guess you're right," Renee confessed.
"Instead of aborting your baby, you and your
mom should enjoy a fun day together," Terri
suggested. "Why don't you go shopping?"
So Renee and her mother left the abortion
chamber and drove to historic Olvera Street, enjoying
the day shopping and eating at a restaurant. Renee's
mother accompanied her home to Bakersfield.
On Wednesday, Terri called to check on Renee.
Renee's mother cried and thanked Terri for her help,
explaining that she is a Pentecostal Christian and that she
has been praying for this baby for four months. "I dreamed
that I was talking to this baby in the womb, telling the baby
'you have the key.'"
"God has planned something important for this baby to
do and that is why the devil wanted to trick Renee into
aborting this baby," Terri responded.
Renee is her mother's only child. Renee's mother
thought that she could never become pregnant, but she was
surprised when she became pregnant with Renee at 40.
Renee was almost killed in the womb due to a doctor's bad
advice, but God saved Renee's life.
"Jack" and his parents are leaders in a local church,
so when he discovered that his girlfriend was
pregnant, he decided to seek an abortion to avoid
confessing his sin to his Christian family. But Jack's
mother brought the couple to the LifeHouse for a
pregnancy test, saying that she is against abortion "but it's
The couple watched a video about abortion at the
LifeHouse, and Tim* and Terri* prayed for God’s
guidance for the couple and protection for their child.
Terri then sent the couple to the Bakersfield Pregnancy
Center for an ultrasound.
"The baby was waving at us," Jack later told Terri,
assuring her that they are no longer considering abortion.

With what shall I come before the Lord,
And bow myself before the High God?
Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings,
With calves a year old?
Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams,
Ten thousand rivers of oil?
Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression,
The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
He has shown you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God?
Pray that God will fill His Church with a passion for justice,
mercy, and humility so that we can respond with His heart to
the needs of every woman experiencing a crisis pregnancy.
Lord, fill us with your love as we encounter women who
are deceived by the devil today.
Open the eyes of the FPA abortion guards so that they
consider what they are really guarding.
Help "Renee" to receive more help
and support as she seeks to provide for her children, and
help her children’s father to take more responsibility.
Continue to expose the evil deeds of abortionists in
Wichita, Alabama, and throughout the nation.
Jesus, I plead your blood over my sins and the sins of
this nation. God, end abortion and send revival to

FPA guard threatens pro-lifers
FPA abortion chamber guard R. Perez threatened to
assault 18-year-old Amy Palmquist* and others with
pepper spray on the afternoon of Monday May 22 when another pro-lifer took a photo of a cross which is prominently displayed in the guard’s car.
Perez, who emphasized her Christian beliefs as she spewed out dozens of expletives, is employed by R. Stanley Security Company, which has contracts to guard FPA and local Catholic churches.
In addition to guarding the abortion chamber, Perez's
duties also include guarding one of the churches. "I know who goes in and who goes out," Perez said as she mocked Catholics, insinuating that they are hypocrites. "The people who go to that church, I see them over here" at the abortion chamber.
Chuck Thompson, owner of R. Stanley Security, claims to be an atheist.
