Babies saved as tempers flare during heat wave

Hall Ambulance transports Family Planning Associates abortion victim

Hall Ambulance arrived at the abortion chamber Monday afternoon, transporting a victim's body to Kern Medical Center.

Besieged by a record-breaking heat wave, Christians refused to abandon their outreach to women entering Bakersfields Family Planning Associates abortion chamber this week, even though temperatures on the hot sidewalks reportedly reached 112 degrees or more.

As Glendale abortionist Robert Smith arrived at the killing center, a Christian radio station could be heard playing loudly from his car. Yet he continued without hesitation to fulfill his duties to execute children, injuring women in the process.

Like the past several weeks, in the scorching heat some people became intensely angry. But at least two (and possibly six or more) babies were saved. As you read these reports of children saved, thank God with us for giving His servants the endurance to stay on the streets so that these children could be saved:

While an officer tried to persuade Terri* to remove a baby swing from the grassy area near the sidewalk outside the abortion chamber, Terri noticed a woman approaching the stairs to the abortion chamber, with a man following her a few steps behind. Wed like to help you to choose life, Terri said to the couple. God has a plan for your baby--if you dont want the baby, we do.

When the man responded to Terri with an obscene gesture, Terri told the woman if you dont have a man that will support you, well do our best to help you, while she told the man God has called you to protect and provide for her, so please do the right thing.

Three minutes later the woman hurried down the stairs, followed by the man. We care about you young lady... please call us if we can help you in any way, Terri said to her. God bless you; Im glad youre leaving.

The couple got into a cement truck which was parked on the street. Then the man came out of the truck, angrily stomping toward Terri. Finally, he threw a book at Terri. The incident was ignored by the officer, who stood nearby taking photographs of the baby swing.

Terri picked up the book he had thrown, discovering that it was a Bible. Terri asked is this your Bible, sir? He responded with shouting and cursing, and then back got into the cement truck and drove away.

Someone had written on the inside cover of the Bible Presented to [the mans name]. Here in these pages the Author has given an answer to all questions. If the question is important, you can find an answer. Get to know the Author personally.

Terri offered literature to a woman approaching the abortion chamber with an older man. I dont need that, the woman snapped back.

If youre coming here you do, Terri replied. I can understand if youre not a Christian why you would be coming here. But if you love God it doesnt make any sense that you would be coming here. Jesus came that you might have life and have it more abundantly. Satan came to steal, kill and destroy.

The door closed behind the couple, but in less than a minute they came back out. The woman told Terri that she changed her mind, and accepted literature from Terri before leaving the killing center.

Diane intended to call the abortion chamber, but called LifeSavers Ministries by accident. She told Terri she wants an abortion because she is only 19 and is struggling just to care for her four-year-old.

Diane confessed that although she is a Christian, when she first became pregnant four years ago, she also intended to abort the child. But on the day of her abortion appointment, she became scared when she saw so many people on the sidewalks outside the abortion chamber.

Terri later contacted one of Dianes family members, who intends to try to help connect Diane with the Elizabeth League group which already exists in her church.

Scripture Focus: Proverbs 14: 1-12

The wise woman builds her house,
   But the foolish pulls it down with her hands.
He who walks in his uprightness fears the LORD,
   But he who is perverse in his ways despises Him.
In the mouth of a fool is a rod of pride,
   But the lips of the wise will preserve them.
Where no oxen are, the trough is clean;
   But much increase comes by the strength of an ox.
A faithful witness does not lie,
   But a false witness will utter lies.
A scoffer seeks wisdom and does not find it,
   But knowledge is easy to him who understands.
Go from the presence of a foolish man,
   When you do not perceive in him the lips of knowledge.
The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way,
   But the folly of fools is deceit.
Fools mock at sin,
   But among the upright there is favor.
The heart knows its own bitterness,
   And a stranger does not share its joy.
The house of the wicked will be overthrown,
   But the tent of the upright will flourish.
There is a way that seems right to a man,
   But its end is the way of death.

Intercede for those who are being deceived by the devil into destroying their own households, praying that God will help them to stop following the road to death and turn to Life in Christ.

The new St. Gianna's Maternity Home on Mt. Vernon Avenue in Bakersfield.

"All the dark and threatening forces of evil are united. It is necessary that the forces of good be all united and form a kind of dam, a barrier as if to say: 'There is no passing over here.'"

- St. Gianna Beretta Molla
A fundraising dinner to benefit the new St. Giannas Maternity Home near Bakersfield College will be held on Friday, August 4 from 6 to 9 pm. Catholic Radio host Jesse Romero will be the speaker. Romero, a Catholic lay evangelist, is a former world champion kick boxer and Los Angeles Sheriffs Deputy.

For a $20 tax deductible donation, attendees will have the opportunity to be inspired by Romeros energetic enthusiasm, along with a spaghetti fest, door prizes and a 50/50 raffle. The dinner will be held at the new maternity home, 3811 Mt. Vernon Avenue (formerly the location of Aunt Cheries Home). More information on the event and the new organization starting this home is available by calling Amanda at 477-5092 or Theresa at 587-3340.

Joseph Palmquist draws on the sidewalk outside an abortion chamber

Joseph Palmquist, 11, draws on the sidewalk--a criminal act?

Officer upset by baby swing, chalk art

As innocent children were torn apart inside Bakersfields abortion chamber Tuesday morning, officer Terry Buss arrived, responding to a report of a law being violated.

Buss asserted that a baby swing set in a public grassy area must be removed, and that chalk drawings were illegal graffiti. Terri Palmquist explained that she had contacted the Bakersfield Police Department several weeks ago to verify the legality of drawing with chalk on public sidewalks, and she was assured that if the messages were not obscene or offensive there should be no problem.

Joseph Palmquists chalk art featured pictures of children and fun activities, with messages such as Children are a gift from God, Every baby wants a birthday, and Choose life.

Officer Terry Buss takes a picture of an 'illegal' baby swing outside Bakersfield's abortion chamber

Officer Terry Buss takes a picture of an "illegal" baby swing outside Bakersfield's abortion chamber, as a couple leaves the abortion chamber without aborting (the cement truck the couple came in can be seen in the distance).

They just dont like anything that makes people stop and think about changing their mind, so they call for every little thing, Terri Palmquist told the officer.

I see your point, Buss responded, but unfortunately, until they change some of the laws such activities are illegal. Buss refused to name any specific laws or ordinances which were being violated, but said he would return to issue a citation after showing the City Attorney photos of the swing and art. He never returned.
