Proverbs 11:5-6 “The righteousness of the blameless makes a straight way for them, but the wicked are brought down by their own wickedness. The righteousness of the upright delivers them, but the unfaithful are trapped by evil desires.”

   THEN                                                                           NOW


        The once mighty Goliath of the abortion industry in the Midwest, Hope Clinic in Granite City , IL , that has killed more preborn babies than any other abortion mill in the United States- over 400,000, is beginning to crumble.  

            An abortion mill that used to kill over 13,104 babies a year in its heyday when it re-opened in 1999 after building a new $2 million “state-of-the art” mill is beginning to fall like the roman empire. Women were lined up 5 days a week to get an abortion and on some days 60-70 women were going into the mill. Abortion is legal, but we know it breaks God’s heart. Proverbs 28:4 “They that forsake the law praise the wicked, but those that keep the law contend with them.”

            The Hope Clinic now is only open 18 days a month and instead of killing over 300 babies a week, they average less than 100 per week! God Himself has proclaimed that “child killing is an abomination and if My people and Church will stand for righteousness and defend the unborn, I will reward their faithfulness.”

            We know God is answering prayers and dealing with the abortion mill as the turmoil continues inside. God is confirming what we already suspected. We recently began deposing former guards and employees that are speaking out concerning the atrocities that have been happening under the current management inside this slaughterhouse. Four lawsuits have been filed against this chop-shop since February of this year. You would think by now someone inside Hope(less) would know how to do an abortion. I think it tells you something when Hope(less) employees are contacting gentle Christian warriors and asking them for help in exposing what is happening behind those purple doors. Especially how, “women are being mistreated.”

            God is dealing with this house of horrors. We have been watching the daily killing numbers dwindle in the past few months. Between the pressure of mounting lawsuits of negligence, battery, and malpractice, disciplinary problems with hired criminal employees, and trying to keep up with upper management’s high salaries the Hope slaughterhouse is having a hard time finding professional “hitmen” to kill babies in the womb ie: abortionist-in-training Lisa Memmel is on the run after the last lawsuit was filed against her. Another Chicagoan abortionist-in-training Amy Whitaker has not been back since Memmel was sued. They are canceling appointments because they can’t find anyone else to kill the day’s scheduled babies. Praise God!

            Let’s face it, chief abortionist Yogendra Shah is getting up in years and abortionist Alan Palmer is having a lot of legal and family problems. He’s barely showing up anymore. We are getting confirmation this bloody business is crumbling! One former staffer told us, “You must be doing good, their numbers continue going down.” Alleluia!

            Now over 50 employees have been fired or quit (long-time former employees Allison Hile, Toni Bautsch, Julie Adams, and Rebecca Smith were making big money); many of them have left this murder mill and others have been named in lawsuits that are active. Visit our workers' gallery to see all the employees that have been fired or quit.

            They have to close their busiest days because they have no abortionist to kill babies. On one recent Saturday, which is their busiest day of the week, they killed only 10 babies and the two employees closed up. The safest place to be in the womb for now is Granite City . For now, their doors are closed temporarily.

           The hearts of the Hope(less) workers are changing. They have seen the dedication and faithfulness of gentle Christian warriors and what they are willing to go through to save one life, let alone 3000.

            The workers inside the mill hate what they are doing. That is why they take drugs and painkillers to medicate themselves on the job. Employees have been busted for this. A lot of abortionists are alcoholics, because they hate themselves and those who stand outside and tell them the truth in love and confront them in their sin. God is breaking their hearts to bring them to their knees in repentance.

              The battle for the lives of preborn children must be won in the streets at the very gates of hell. Politicians and presidents are not going to stop abortion. Yes, they will throw pro-life bones our way, but it won’t save one baby. This has been proven with the partial-birth abortion ban signed by President Bush. It hasn’t saved one baby from this barbaric act. It is still legal in all fifty states.

            So we have the most liberal pro-abort Muslim President-elect, and we are staring down the barrel of F.O.C.A proposed legislation, get over it. We who live the Bible out on the streets know abortion is not a political issue. It’s a moral issue, but we’re fighting it everyway but the one and only way that will bring it to an abrupt end and that is when the Church of Jesus Christ runs to the battle, shows up, and says it’s over and not one day sooner will it come to an end.

            Remember when former pro-abortion President Bill Clinton was in office, abortions went down and abortion mills closed? Not one pro-life piece of legislation was passed during this time. What happened? Gentle Christian warriors showed up outside these gates and stood in the gap and held a banner where a banner never flew. We know the devil’s time here on earth is fleeting. When you fight the enemy and wield the sword of the spirit, he is no match and the devil will flee.

            The humanity of the little child in the womb of his mother has become almost impossible to deny, thanks to science, technology, and the bold witness of gentle Christians who have stormed the gates of hell and shown the truth in the streets of their cities. The truth, concerning the sanctity and preciousness of life, is overwhelming the lie of abortion. Hope Clinic does not have enough fingers to put in the dike to stop the hemorrhaging.

            This has been proven as we fought a federal lawsuit and God prevailed in the courts. This little remnant has the God-given legal right to show the truth of abortion in the streets of Granite City , even during their parades. God has blessed our 15 years of faithfulness standing outside this mill. Almost 3000 babies have been saved in the past 7 years, and 27 have been adopted. John 15:5.

            You know its going to be a good day when the once full and running over parking lot was packed and now we pull our ultrasound van up to the giant baby killing machine and its lot is barren.

            Many babies have been saved from the slaughter and we are blessed with extended families. God touched our family in a special way with the birth and adoption of our 12th child who was saved from this mill. Another blessing!          

            We pray that this will be an encouragement to you. The abortion industry is crumbling. With the tremendous drop in abortive mothers it’s only a matter of time before this slaughterhouse joins the list of more than 1500 abortion mills that have closed in the past 15 years.

            These are exciting times and these are perilous times. Yes, you heard me correctly. All hell may be breaking out around us, but hopefully this will encourage the disheartened. For years this family has with stood all kinds of indignation, insult, attacks, and trials and persecution. But if God be for us who would go against us? Never in our wildest dreams did we ever think we would see the light at the end of the tunnel, and for once it’s not a train bearing down on us. Let these little victories encourage the faint of heart as they are huge victories in God’s eyes. Matthew 5:16 “In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

            As always, be encouraged ~Angela
