absolutely unbelievable what Satan can use and the destruction he can
cause all in the “Name of Jesus.” It was not the
screams of the St. Valentine's Massacre that were underway inside
Hope(less) abortion mill. It was the screams of a little 3 year old
girl being attacked by an adult male who is a constant reproach
outside this mill, that was so disturbing.
ministry has been embedded for over fifteen years outside this
abortion mill. We are equipped with a pregnancy resource mobile unit
including an ultrasound machine to show the abortion-bound mothers a
picture of the innocent life growing in their womb, and other
resources including Bibles in offering them another option and real
hope to carry their babies to term and help with either parenting or
adoption. We have been successful since January 2000 with the saves of
over 3000 babies and 28 being adopted by loving couples.
sad news is, since our ministry has been so successful and fruitful
and received national attention, we have been a constant target for
the enemy. I’m not speaking of the abortion industry which we would
expect, but the so-called Christian community. We soon realized there
are frauds and treacherous people even in the pro-life arena. There is
only one perfect man and that was Jesus. Our shield of faith was so
full of fiery darts we could barely lift it, but despite the trials we
did. You’ve heard the saying, “Live your lives so that
every morning the devil can be heard saying, ‘Oh no, they’re still
alive.’” That’s us. God got a hold of us when we were
literally fighting for our lives and the destiny of this ministry. The
Lord showed us how evil and wicked men’s hearts are. This ministry
needed to rely on God and not man.
Small Victories won a federal lawsuit after suing Granite City a
little over two years ago, that is when these rebellious and
stiff-necked troublemakers showed up on the sidewalk outside our mill
and began their attacks and devising their schemes, chasing us with
video cameras, and screaming in our faces, “Your ministry is
over!” to try and deter our focus. They were full of
jealousy and envy. The have pulled every dirty trick in the book. You
see, the devil never sleeps. He is up 24/7.
lowest point was when they tried to press charges against an 88 year
old crippled man who has stood with us daily for 10 years claiming,
“the old man assaulted them”. Thank God there was
an unbiased witness across the street that witnessed this fiasco. An
accused child molester, whose daughters were permanently removed by
the state of
from his care, was setting a trap and this hospital worker came to
this elderly man’s aid and told the police the truth before they
the demons have not backed down. If you read our daily streets reports
on our website, you may be familiar with a demon possessed fake
collared man John Baliff. He is the “Messiah”
of these troublemakers. They encourage him and prop him up outside
this abortion mill. He screams only inches away from frightened and
scared abortion-bound women. He will not come under any authority or
accept correction. He has posed as a Catholic priest and heard a
distraught widower’s confession across the street outside the
hospital. Many pastors and churches that have stood with us outside
this mill have tried to speak with him and many have rebuked his
actions. Most, if not all, have not returned due to this reproach
outside Hope Clinic.
is a very angry, unsuccessful, and bitter man. John has caused the
deaths of many babies with the scream-preaching he hurls at the women.
Most of his anger is condemnation laced with some scripture. There is
no respect for anyone outside this abortion mill or an established and
dedicated ministry such as ours that has been sued, chewed, and
tattooed; that blazed the trail, so that John and his troublemaker
followers can ride our coattails.
these men were really called by God to preach the gospel why is it
that they are only screaming the gospel outside an abortion mill? Why
aren’t they preaching outside Muslim mosques? Because they are
cowards. They are there to condemn and attack women and little girls.
How many have they converted with this approach?
past Saturday we began in prayer after setting up. Daniel wrapped
individual roses to be handed to the abortion-bound mothers as an
offer of real love on Valentine’s Day to hopefully touch their
hearts as they contemplated their child’s death. But John was full
of the devil. He was on what has been referred to as “krazy
korner” screaming all morning. We played soft prayer music
to try and calm his hate speech. Faith & Freedom
Family Ministries leaders Peggy Dresden and Nolan Clayton
then came over to the front sidewalk and stood chatting with one
Jess, Ken, myself, Lisa, and Savanah were all working the perimeters
of the abortion mill as cars with mothers were piling inside. John
kept screaming. Ken was getting discouraged as none of the mothers
took his rose and literature he was offering them before they went
inside. We began apologizing for the screaming man. Some of the
mothers acknowledged our efforts and thanked us.
the sidewalk we heard a commotion. Then we heard this blood curdling
scream from a child. Again we heard it and we ran to the alley where
we saw John standing and blocking a man holding his little girl’s
hand. John was screaming directly at the little girl who was then
standing by herself. The father was off to the side screaming for John
to stop it. John Baliff was attacking this little girl yelling at her,
“They’re killing babies in there,” and
something about “fornication and murder”.
that time we had made it up to the scene. Both escorts were trying to
pull him back. He would not let up. The guard came out running to our
aid. I grabbed the little girl who was screaming at the top of her
lungs. “John, stop it. Get away from her.” This
little girl’s father was threatening to get his gun from his car and
shoot him for what he was doing. I signaled to the father, “He’s
nuts, he is not with us. He is mental.” The father’s face
changed a little and I looked at the girl. I scooped her up. “It’s
gonna be okay. You can stop screaming. He is not going to hurt you.
It’s gonna be okay,” and I wrapped my arms around her and
prayed the police would arrive and arrest John for what he was doing
to this 3 year old. I wiped her tears. This was horrible.
comforting 3 year old
guard and escorts helped us get the man and daughter away from John. Tyrel
and his daughter were attempting to go inside and get his pregnant
little sister out of the mill. I had spoken with Tyrel earlier in the
morning as he was sitting in the car on his phone. He was speaking to
his sister inside talking her out of the abortion. It was only minutes
later that he began walking towards the entrance with his 3 year old
when John Baliff began attacking the little girl. He did not speak to
her father; he just began screaming in this little girl’s face and
would not back down.
little girl holding Angela as guard and escorts look on
the deathscort and the anti-abortionist crossed enemy lines and worked
in agreement as we feverishly did damage control this day. The father
was very upset and continued threatening to take care of John Baliff. “That’s
my daughter! He had no right to do that to her.” We both agreed
and apologized profusely to him. The father took the girl from my arms
and began placing her in the car seat of his car.
, the deathscort, looked at me and said, “Angela,
I have never seen that. I looked into John’s eyes and saw hate.
Angela, where was the compassion?” I knew
was shook up. I told him, “
, now you know what we have been dealing with down here. I know God is
the answer and still in control, but what can I do
?” I asked. He just shook his head.
intervening between angered father and screaming false prophet
attention turned towards the father. I asked him if I could run to my
van for a treat for his little girl. He said, “Yes,”
and I took off running in my boots. All along the way, the prayer
warriors with our ministry commented how awful that scene was. I asked
them to keep praying against the demons. The seminarians showed up and
others began filling them in on what just happened. I grabbed a
handful of treats and ran back to their car and noticed Bill Gover,
another troublemaker, was slapping John Baliff on the back as
gesturing, “Good job.”
And he was laughing. Daniel noticed it too, went over to Mr. Gover,
and told him, “There is
nothing funny about what that imbecile just did. And if you are with
him, you’re as bad as he is.”
we comforted the little girl with the treats, the father told us he
was just going in there to get his little sister out. “He
had no right to attack my daughter.” I offered, “He
is a coward and it was wrong what he did sir. Not everyone down here
is with our ministry.” Then
explained our ministry to the man.
said, “Angela and I do not
believe the same way, but we can agree that what John Baliff did today
was terribly wrong.” I then told the father, “John
has killed more babies with his mouth than the abortionist has killed
with his knives.”
father eventually calmed down, thanked us, and gave us a hug. I looked
in at the little girl who was holding one of our lovely red roses and
told her how precious she was and, “I
am so sorry that man screamed and frightened you. God loves you.”
I had given her all the treats and told her if she had brothers and
sisters to share with them. She thanked me and they drove off the lot.
stood there and said, “Angela,
I have never looked in a man’s eyes and seen what I have seen
today.” He then said, “Thank
goodness for tootsie pops.” I said, “Yes
Franklin, but those suckers are temporary. My concern is what that
little girl will remember this day.”
we returned to the front sidewalk, Nolan was patting John on the back
and checking out early as most of the cowards do when they cause
trouble. Peggy had already run off. We were left to do damage control.
Ken and others came over and updated us. The guard commented, “He
only wanted to get his sister out.” “I
know Mike. All I could think was, ‘Father, forgive them for they
know not what they do.’” Another little baby died at the hands
of those who come “In the
Name of Jesus.” The troublemakers have made it very dangerous
for us, and even harder to rescue babies outside the gates of hell,
the devil’s playground.
watched another Black American family with a Christian fish shirt on
the female driver’s chest proudly walking inside to kill. We
reminded her of the commandment, “Thou
shalt not kill. It’s not a suggestion. You know God’s Word. He
abhors a mocker.”
this time, John Baliff was still continuing his rampage of insults to
the few abortion-bound women still going inside on this day of love.
But Ken, the faithful sidewalk warrior, blessed us with God’s wisdom
as we all felt a little beat up today fighting demon warfare. All
morning Ken kept trying to give his rose to the pregnant mothers as
they pulled up to the abortion mill. He could not figure out why they
would not take it, but noticed they were taking them from Daniel and
others who were handing them out.
the altercation with John Baliff and the little girl, Ken walked over
to the car where the little girl was sitting as I ran to get treats
and he asked the father if he could give this little girl this
beautiful rose. He said, “Yes,”
and Ken placed it in her hand. She smiled. Ken said, “I
felt discouraged all morning that no one was taking my rose. But God
had a better plan. He wanted me to give that rose to that little girl
John attacked. He wanted it for the little girl that was hurting. I
hope that I showed the father that not every pro-lifer that stands in
front of abortion mills is like John.” After Ken shared that
story we all had tears in our eyes. “Yes,
God is still in control. He will deal with those who have come to
kill, steal, and destroy.”

What made it worse were the pro-choice Eden Theological seminarians
who witnessed the entire incident held a sign at the entrance of Hope
Clinic stating, “Women need
compassion, not condemnation.”
