Baby's life saved at breakfast
A life-saving breakfast happened on Monday morning in Southern California.
Pro-life missionary Rose Mary Leon had breakfast with a woman we'll call
"Sheena" who was considering abortion. Rose had met Sheena and her husband
on Saturday outside an abortion mill.
Sheena couldn't understand why Rose was so concerned about her abortion
decision. Rose explained that some of her relatives were killed in the
World War II Holocaust, and that abortion is a modern holocaust.
Rose went on to say that women can become victims of this holocaust too, by
being deceived into thinking abortion will solve their problems.
Rose said "God gives everyone special gifts, including the baby you are
carrying. If you take a life uniquely imbued by God with special gifts,
and you throw it in the trash, what does that say to God?" Sheena didn't
respond. Rose waited in silence for a reply. After a few minutes, Sheena
said "I know you're right, and I won't be going through with the abortion."
Sheena happily left that breakfast with a confident resolve that she would
be keeping this child, her fifth baby.
Baby saved behind street preacher's back
Last Friday in Fort Worth, a young pregnant woman stopped in at a gas
station on her way to an abortion appointment. As she poured herself some
coffee, her attention was drawn to the sounds of Dan LaFreniere preaching
next door, outside the abortion chamber.
She could only see his back,
but she listened carefully as he preached to a young man about having the
courage to do what is right.
LaFreniere continued preaching, though it seemed to have little impact on the
young man. Suddenly, he was startled by someone tapping his back.
The young woman had walked over from the gas station to request a pro-life
He asked her if she was going in for an abortion. "Not after
listening to you--I changed my mind," she said.
LaFreniere gave the credit to God for saving this life: "The Lord took my
words and sent them forward and then backward to reach
this young lady. Praise the Lord!"
Connecticut Christians endure windy day to save a baby
With winds up to 60 miles per hour whipping through the community of Bridgeport,
this morning, about 35 gentle Christians were on the sidewalk outside the
Summit Women's Center, praying for God to save the children who were scheduled
to die inside. As the wind blew shingles off of a nearby building, it
nearly blew away some of the large pro-life signs.
Meanwhile, five babies were killed inside the abortion chamber. A
great-grandmother took her young granddaughter in to kill her great
grandchild, saying that she could not be bothered with the adoption process.
But at least one women changed her mind, and two others left without killing
Marilyn Carroll, one of the pro-life leaders, said "as disciples of Christ
we have a God-given privilege and responsibility to help our nation regain
moral integrity. These young people ... hunger for spiritual wholeness.
They need caring Christians who demonstrate Godly choices and will walk
with them as they confront tough decisions."
Women lets her baby live after God sends a "sign"
A woman who was planning to abort her baby on December 1 in Fort Worth,
Texas changed her mind because she said God sent her a sign. What was
the sign? It was Dan LaFreniere, standing on the sidewalk, preaching
on love and family and offering Jesus to the women who were entering the
Westside abortion mill.
As the woman and her husband pulled into the parking lot, she stared at
Dan with her mouth open as if she had seen a ghost. Dan told her that
the Lord loved her, and said that she would not stay long because she would
open her heart to love and protect her baby.
After about thirty minutes inside, she came running down the parking lot
to Dan and said "I prayed to God that He would send me a sign to stop me
from killing my baby, and you are it. I knew from the moment I saw you that
you were from God and my baby would live." She gave Dan a big hug and a kiss
on the cheek, and thanked him.
Baby saved by saying "Good morning"?
Sometimes it doesn't take much to save a baby. Last Saturday in the
San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles, a young couple drove up to the local
abortion chamber with a baby in the back seat. Rose Mary Leon, a pro-life
sidewalk counselor, approached the car, handed them some literature, and
said "Good morning. How are you?"
The couple pulled into the parking lot, but they never got out of their
car. As they were driving out, they stopped and told Rose that they had
come for an abortion, but changed their minds. They looked very happy
about their decision to keep their baby.
Rose said "I didn't observe whether they read my literature or not.
But praise the Lord for another life spared."
A 7-pound, 6-ounce baby named Michael was born last Tuesday in White Plains,
New York, after surviving an attempt by his abortionist-father to kill him
Joy Schepis said she named her baby Michael "for the saint who fought off
Satan." Michael has been given a clean bill of health by doctors.
Schepis had publicly pleaded for prayer following the attack, asking God to
protect her baby's life. After the birth, she said
"I'd like to thank [everyone] for their prayers. We're OK.... It
was a long haul, but he pulled through."
The baby's father, abortionist Stephen Pack, has been charged with
assault and committing an abortional act. He pleaded not guilty by
reason of mental
disease or defect. He is scheduled to return to court next week.
