Abuse of Power in

“The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse.” ~Edmund Burke
Meet the Hope Abortion Mill Meter-Maid
Now meet home-schooling mom and prayer warrior Christa
Owens and some of her six children.
She looks pretty dangerous doesn’t she?
She is so dangerous that Granite City Police Officer
Reynolds decided to embark with lights flashing in full pursuit of
Mrs. Owens (who had just left the abortion mill) to give her a
$20.00 parking ticket for being parked halfway in the yellow area.
This was all very upsetting to her young children. When faithful
pro-lifer Stan came to her aid, meter-maid Reynolds threatened to
arrest him for jaywalking and ordered Stan to stay on the curb.
This campaign of intimidation and writing $120.00-$750.00 tickets
against the Small Victories Ultrasound Van and their peaceful
supporters is outrageous.
past Tuesday, the Ultrasound Van was parked 80% within the parking
zone. Only four minutes after parking, Hope abortion mill employee
Ryan Goskie summoned the Granite City Police. Meter-maid Reynolds
pulled alongside the van and began writing another outrageously
priced parking ticket. When the Small Victories director attempted
to back the van up another foot, meter-maid Reynolds sprang from
his car, thrust open the ultrasound van door, grabbed her arm, and
threatened to have the van towed. We explained, “We’re
not going anywhere; we’re backing up.” There were
witnesses to this account and they, too, thought this was
over-kill. And this meter-maid has been issued a firearm?! God
Isaiah 1. Woe to this once great
city, it has now become a desolate town full of innocent blood and
injustice. Its officials rule as roaring lions and take no
correction. They oppress the righteous and take bribes. They
deprive the poor and innocent of justice. They call evil good and
good evil. Its inhabitants have become slaves to complacency and
have fallen under a curse of what is evil. The shepherds are
leading their flocks astray and their foes have become their
God’s remnant stands against evil and is making huge inroads by
saving hundreds of babies and taking innocent blood away from
Satan, they are a target. The devil will come hard after you for
righteousness’ sake and you will be persecuted. In the past two
years of our 18 year daily ministry on the streets of the City of
, we have seen hundreds of babies saved and adopted; we have seen
conversions of employees, moms, and dads from this abortion mill.
On a typical Saturday, Hope abortion mill would kill approximately
45-60 babies. This past Saturday we witnessed the killings of 15
babies and the saving of five babies scheduled to be slaughtered,
including a set of twins. God is rejoicing and the devil is angry.
Our prayers and daily witness have been powerful.
ultrasound van is being targeted as it has been a source of truth
to the abortion-bound mothers and their accomplices. It was so
effective that this past Saturday, a Hispanic couple pulled onto
the abortion mill lot and listened to us as we called over, “No
aborto, no aborto.” They looked over at the Special
Forces with the free help sign and came inside. Little did we
know that all HELL would break loose as the portly male deathscort
would pursue them and actually attempted to break into our
ultrasound van where we were performing an ultrasound. Alleluia!
We were able to view a set of 8
week old twins as the prayer warriors used their bodies to
block the deathscorts from grabbing the door handle and entering
our pregnancy van. “This is private property; you have no right to go inside,” they
told the deathscorts.
The devil was
fuming. Yet, this shows you the arrogance of those who love death.
The abortion mill
brazenly thinks it can walk right inside our life-saving van
without a thought to the contrary, whereas if a pro-lifer walked
up to the slaughterhouse doors and attempted to go inside they
would be arrested on the spot, hauled off by local Gestapo, and
sitting in a cell at the “Granite City Hanoi Hilton.” You see,
there is a double-standard in this City of
where injustice reigns. For instead of “protecting and
serving” equally, local law enforcement, through harassment
and intimidation, has chosen to side with the abortion mill
against our ministry and anyone who would dare to stand with us in
the cause of saving the innocent. Understood, the abortion mill
brings a lot of bloody revenue into this deplorable town. Not the
steel mill, but the baby killing mill keeps this city afloat
financially. It’s called “blood-money.”
Just last week during the Fall 40 Days for Life campaign,
Christa and her children were praying on the front sidewalk when a
young girl came back out of the abortion mill and decided to keep
her baby. She came into Christa’s arms for a loving embrace and
heard words of encouragement and thankfulness from this precious
prayer warrior and her dear children. BAM! Little did Christa know
then, but she instantly became a target of the devil. She just
helped save a life. Like so many, she didn’t stay at home or in
her comfortable office and fight the battle for little boys and
girls destined to be slaughtered from her lazy-boy; she was with
us in the trenches. That makes one dangerous in the fight for
life, good versus evil. We should all be living that dangerously:
living in such a way that through love, commitment, and simply
“being there” we are a threat to Satan and his kingdom of evil
until that final day when we hear, “Well
done my good and faithful servant.” Keep
praying for a conversion of hearts, especially Officer Reynolds’
and those who take part in killing babies; but until that final
day, we will see you at the gates.
