Thursday, August 12, 2010 in front of the Death Mill, Planned Parenthood

Talk about being traumatized that's what we experienced today.The shedding of innocent blood just kept on going.  It was a nightmare.  Martha, John & I
got to the front lines & then Carole joined us about 15 minutes later.  John
See full size imagebrought a white statue of the Blessed Mother & he brought it out to the front lines.  We always have the image of Our Lady of Guadeloupe, on a poster, out on the front lines.   I do try to be a Christian out on the front lines.  The emotional toil it takes to be in a place, three times a week every week, where they are slaughtering people & you can't do a darn thing about it.  We do pray & lives have been saved & we are grateful for that that's for sure but so many mothers are going into Planned Parenthood & letting the abortionist Rachael Phelps kill their precious babies.  You can't put the baby back together, once you realized what you did.  The hearts are very hard out there & it's  EVIL, to say the least.  It is the war zone & it stinks.

The first horror was when I was out there on the sidewalk I decided to go
over to the brick side of Planned Parenthood that we would have all three
sides covered.  Bill, our war veteran was across the street & Martha, Carole
& John were by the bush side so I decided to move to the other side.  I
t
See full size imagehought that I would have a good view but I was wrong.  The bushes that Ted Hosner planted does block most of the parking lot.  I really couldn't see the girls until they were in the foyer of Planned Parenthood.  I had the mega phone & was using it then I heard Martha calling out to the girls in her own voice.  I stopped using the mega phone & let her speak.  All of a sudden I heard a voice near me saying "shut the .... up".  I then used the mega phone & laid into her.  I said "watch your mouth, how dare you talk to this remarkable woman like that, you have no respect.  Would you talk to your own mother that way"?  "This is a killing mill where babies are being killed as we speak".   A few minutes later a young girl walked over to the three who were over on the bush side.  I then decided to go back over to where the rest of the team were.  I heard, the girl say something about "I'm here to say that I'm sorry for what I said".  I thought, that was good. Then I heard her say "my girlfriend is in there for an abortion".  What!!  I butted in & said "why aren't you in there trying to save this little baby & you will regret for ever driving & supporting your friend today in having an abortion".  "That's what you think", she said.  "No, that's the hard truth, I'm not sugar coating this, you are involved in a murder & it will effect you, for the rest of your life & your relationship with your friend."  As she was about to leave the sidewalk John had said something else to her & she turned around to give him the 'bird'.  I said to her "you just said that you wanted to rape him".  She looked perplexed.  I said "that's what the 'finger' jester really means".  She walked back into Planned Parenthood.  I was so angry that we couldn't get through to her. See full size imageIn the meantime a girl walked by Martha & she asked her if she wanted some children's clothes that were 'free' & she said that she did.  So off they go to the Focus Center to the Material Aid Room were Rose & Suzanne were.

I was standing in shock from what this girl told me when I saw that a Taxi
had dropped off a young girl & guy, on the sidewalk, by Planned Parenthood.
The death escort from Planned Parenthood, a old tart he is, came over to
them.  I decided to cross the street & go over to try to help them.  When I
See full size imagearrived with the Truth packet & the rubberized 12 week old plastic baby I said to her "do you want to see the baby".  They then walked into Planed Parenthood with the death escort.  My heart sank.  A few minutes later they came out & I was hopeful, only for a very short time.  They walked down the street & I called over to John to give them the packet.  He finally did as they were returning to Planned Parenthood & the guy took it & the girl took it from him & threw it down on the sidewalk near Planned Parenthood, we retrieved it.  We aren't going to have our packets thrown away & wasted, for the nastiness of the victim or the victimizer.  I was upset for I was hopeful when I saw that they walked out of Planned Parenthood but my heart was in turmoil when I saw them come back & not open for the truth. Ruined young lives.  It's a heartbreak.

I saw from a distance a young woman & a young child around 3 years old, with a guy walk down the sidewalk.  I asked Martha if she would ask her if she needed anything at the center.  She brought them in for some real nice
See full size image
things.  She told Martha that she was on the Depo Provera shot & hasn't had a period in 3 months & isn't pregnant.  Bad drug.....it also thins your bones too in making it very easy for a fracture to take place.  Many side effects & is also an abortificiant, which means that it takes the life of an already fertilized egg, which is a person.  No Bill O'Reilly, not a 'potential human being' but a real 'human being'.  Lets start to respect the person in the womb because we were all there at one time.

See full size imageSuzanne was in the center calling are clients seeing if they needed anything & how they are doing.  Great news we just go in finding out that we are parents again.  One of our clients had a baby boy Lou, a few weeks ago, & both are doing very well.  Praise God!!  Our new mom needs a pac n play & we will get one for her.  This is so cool :)

Carole's little granddaughter who was born at 1 lb. 8oz. was with us on the
See full size imagefront lines in a picture that was framed.  We put it by the statue of the Blessed Mother.  Here Carole is praying that her little granddaughter will survive as Rachael Phelps, the abortionist at Planned Parenthood, is in there killing these precious babies, that God has just created.  How shameful.

See full size imageRose was busy in the Material Aid Room servicing our clients.  The room is
such a blessing to us & our clients & their children.  They are so happy when they come in & shop for free.

A mother brought her 2 young daughters into Planned Parenthood & when they came out the mother told me that they were in there for birth control.  I
See full size imagewas upset & I said to the mother "you are making your daughters into Planned Parenthood sex objects & they are going to be used by the men they have sex with. They will suffer with low self esteem & even might get Sexually Transmitted Diseases & even get pregnant & will you then bring them back here to kill your grandchild".  I was angry.  These mothers are wimps & they are destroying their daughter's lives.

Carole had just left when the girl that was disrespectful to Martha & was here with her girlfriend who was having her baby be killed.  I called over to them & said "where is your baby".  I was holding Malachi, the aborted baby at 21 weeks when they came out.  She rolled down the window & say things that
See full size imagewere so vulgar & I will not repeat it here or anywhere else.  It was trashy talk.  She said yeah just show mw the signs & I'll get right in your face.  I then saw the death bracelet on her right arm.  I said "you have the death mark, you have the death mark".  She just kept on going on & on & the driver was getting onto the street so I took out my cell phone & I pretended to call the police.  They left quickly & that's what we wanted. We aren't going to be abused because that's what some of them do best. Sorry we are NOT your victims.  It did take Martha & I a little time to recover from this incident.  Their hell has just begun.  You can't kill an innocent baby & live a happy life.  THAT"S THE LIE THAT PP TELLS YOU IN ORDER FOR YOU TO HAVE AN ABORTION!  Don't buy their lie........ Please.

About 15 minutes later the two young kids that came in the Taxi walked out & I tried to talk to them as they walked up the sidewalk & she threw me the
'bird'.  They went into the alley way & about 5 minutes later they came out
See full size image
& got into a Taxi.  As the cab drove by us I held the graphic sign & also was holding the statue of the Blessed Mother, to which she showed her ignorance again.  They feel some what guilty, when we are out there, for what they have just done, and they get mad at us.  We pray for them & their terrible lives, that they will seek out God's forgiveness & their child's, for what they did.  Taking a life is never the answer to your problems. Post abortion will only add to your problems in a different  & more horrible way.

See full size imageLater on when the abortionist was leaving I said "were you busy making out the 'Death Certificates' of the babies that you just slaughtered here today?
As she was pulling out of the driveway, around 7pm, I said to her "your hysterectomy when you were 22 shouldn't have made you into a murder".  I had an hysterectomy, for endometriosis at 28, & I don't kill people.  What made her into an abortionist???  She was once a Pediatrician...

 


Tuesday, August 17, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

When we arrived after Mass the other team members went out to the front lines to set up.  I was left behind & when I was heading out the doorbell rang & I answered it.  There were two women & one young girl around 3 years old.  I asked if I could help them & the one woman who was obviously pregnant said to me " I need a letter from you to prove that I'm pregnant to give to the Department of Social Service Department".  "Come on in "I said".  See full size imageI needed to do a pregnancy test even though she is pregnant in order to say that I did a pregnancy test & it was positive. I then told her that we were not a Medical facility bit to go to the St. Mary's Clinic for them to writ a letter stating that you are pregnant & your due date".  Poor lady, her husband had beaten her up & she showed me her bruises & he's in jail now.  That's where he should be.  She has a high risk pregnancy & no money & no food.  The next thing I did for her was to call the local Food Link for her to get food for her daughter & herself.  Thank God she had an apartment.  I gave her a brochure & told her to call Fidelis Care for insurance  http://www.fideliscare.org/.  Her sister-in-law is with her & is willing to help her out as much as she can.  She & our clients daughter were in the Material Aid Room shopping.  What a sweet little girl.  Rose was making our usual sandwiches & I asked her to make a sandwich for out hungry client & her daughter & sister-in-law.   They enjoyed the chicken sandwich, tortilla chips, cranberry juice & chocolate chip cookies, that Rob had brought in for our supper, later on.  I gave her other brochures & encouraged her to go to St. Mary's clinic & to Food Link, which she knew where it was & to call the 1-800 # at Fidelis Care.  Also I need to comment that 211 was also a help to our client.  This number can give you numbers of different things that you request, like food or shelters, etc..  As she was leaving she stopped & turned to me saying that she had gone to many places to get assistance but they all turned her down until she came to us at Focus.  Praise God for this remarkable comment, it did touch my heart.  See full size imageWe are so glad to be able to assist our girls, to give them a better life.  This case is frustrating, I hope that I will see her again.  I told her not to give up because the Lord is with her & her daughter.   She said that she won't.  I was happy to hear this.  

As I was inside the center, with Sandi & Rose, taking care of our client & working in the Material Aid Room, the rest of the team, Martha, Mary S., Donna, Carole, Rob & John, were out on the front lines.  As I was about to join them the doorbell rang & it was Martha with our first of nine customers for the Material Aid Room today.  We even had our chocolate chip cookies devoured by our last two girls that had driven out Planned Parenthood.  I asked them if they needed any help & that we had a pregnancy center right next to this big yellow building.  They said "yes we want to come over to your place".  I asked Martha is she would assist them & she said "okay".  When she came back out about 15 minutes later she said that they didn't want aSee full size imagenything but just to look around & they spotted the chocolate chip cookies, that Rob had bought for our desert tonight, & devoured them in a matter of seconds, before Martha could do anything about it.  Either they were very hungry or just plan rude & aggressive.  Out the door that went, full as can be, with our desert.  That's not what we are all about girls, please come back when you really want our help, & please bring your own cookies next time.  We are not suckers.  We have a generous heart to help people in need. 
 
I brought a young girl into the Rose Room for a pregnancy test, which was negative & I did some teaching with her.  I told her that it might have been to early & for her to come back next week for a repeat test, if nothing had changed.  She was grateful.
 
Two young girls were walking up the street with their mother into Planned Parenthood covering their faces as they walked by us because of the graphic pictures.  They were in Planned Parenthood for a very short time & came out.  I asked then if they wanted a 'free' pregnancy test & to follow Martha for one.  They did & they were in the center t for about 10 minutes when I saw that one of the young girls was walking by herself down the street.  I though to myself that she was given the news that she was pregnant & was upset & left the center without the other 2 people.  Well the story goes was that she wasn't pregnant but didn't want to watch the Growth & Development video that Martha had put on.   Her mother & sister went into the Material Aid Room to get some things for a baby in the family.  Then they joined her outside.  I noticed that the two of them walked into Planned Parenthood & when they had come out the mother had called over to the daughter who was waiting for them down the street saying "I have some condoms for you"!  I went up to the mother & said "this is not the message that you want to give your daughter"!  Then she said that her daughter drinks to much & lets her guard down & the guys take advantage of her because she's good looking".  I said that she needs to stop drinking & to get her boundaries back.  It sounds like rape to me.  They get her drunk & have their way with her without See full size imageher consent.  Mom you have to do better for her sake & her sister's sake too.  The mom was heart sick & was crying.  I said just trust in the Lord & do the right thing & He will see you & your family through.  She said "yes I'm a believer & I will trust in the power of the Lord".  Glory be to God!!  There is hope here & healing & change for this mother & her two daughters. 
 
The Planned Parenthood Death Escort was reading a book in the sunshine waiting for her next victim to arrive to devour.  We try for that not to happen.  See full size imageWhen a car comes in we speak Truth to that person or persons, hoping the Truth will penetrate their souls & convict them, through the power of God, not to do the evil that they are planning to do.  Some, thank God, have turned around & went home or came into the Focus Center, to get the help that they needed, to keep their pregnancies going.  It's the most horrible place, on the face of the Earth, where they are massacring little babies, for $$$$.   
 
The Material Aid Room was buzzing today.  The word is getting out.  I was See full size imageback in the center for a few minutes when a mom came in asking for size 5 diapers for her 9 month old son.  We were almost all out of diapers & we don't usually carry size 5 anyhow.  She then said that she needed some money for her Security Deposit for her rent.  I told her that we were a small pregnancy center & we don't give out money for Security Deposits.  I gave her our Referral List & told her to call a couple of numbers to see if they could possibly help her.  It's been so sad lately, for so many women & girls are coming into our center, who are so needy & we are so eager to get See full size imageas many referral agency names & numbers that we can to give out to our clients for them to get the help that they need by the right agency.   My heart aches for our girls & their children & for their lives.  Making the wrong choices 'in life' can be devastating. 
 
See full size imageJohn was writing more messages, on the sidewalk, with sidewalk chalk.  We just found out that a girl was walking by & she saw the Pregnancy Help number 1/800-395-HELP & took it down & called it.  She was guided to go to the EmbracingOptions Pregnancy Center, http://www.embracingoptions.org/ 
to get a 'free' pregnancy test & was counseled & loved by the staff there.  They took good care of her & she was blessed.  A turn around due to the love & kindness, that she received from the staff, all because of a little chalk on the sidewalk.  It was a message of hope & change. 
 
We had a nice surprise visit from one of our clients & her baby boy who was born April 2nd of this year.  She brought her girlfriend in with her.  They spent some time in the Material Aid Room to get some real nice things for the baby.  See full size imageThen a nice girl was in the Material Aid Room & she said to me.  "Hello Miss Mary, do you remember me, my baby Michael is coming home tomorrow from the hospital, for he's been there for the last 6 months now, because he was born premature".  I said "yes I do remember you & I was trying to get a hold of you & your mother but the number wasn't a working number any longer".  "I had a crib for you but I couldn't reach you so I had to give it to someone else".  "Please come back next Thursday & I'll have a Pac in Play for you to take home for Michael & he can use it up to a year or more, it's better then a crib".  She said "that'll be great, I'll be back next Thursday to pick it up & thank you".  Off she went only for me to find out that when she had left our center she walked into Planned Parenthood.  She was in there for a long time & when she finally came out I approached her gently & said "they kill babies in there, you don't want to be in a place like that".  She said that it was for a check up.  Only God knows why she went into Planned Parenthood?  When I see her next Thursday I will talk to her some more & give her some literature to take with her along with the Pac in Play.  I worry about my girls.  They seem to think that Planned Parenthood is their friend but that is further from the Truth.  They destroy lives & we know it, that's for sure, from the stories that the girls come & tell us about.  I only wish that there would be a Class Action suit against them & they would 'CLOSE FOREVER", never to kill again or to ruin another girls life.
 
It was supper time!!  The table was set for Martha, Rob, John & myself.  I See full size imagebrought in a roasted chicken & roasted potatoes & Martha brought in a green salad & Rob brought in chocolate chip cookies, oh I almost forgot that were no more.....  We had a feast & great conversation & we reviewed over the afternoon's events.  We had just finished when all of a sudden there were a young couple walking into the All Purpose Room where we were having supper.  We looked surprised because we didn't hear the doorbell ring, but See full size imagefigured that the door was left a jar & anyone could come on in.  We were glad that it was this nice couple.  They were walking down the sidewalk when they saw our sing there on the sidewalk stating 'Free Children's Clothes' with See full size imageany arrow pointing to our center.  She was pregnant, due around Christmas time, so they thought that they would come on in.  We were happy that they did.  The mom went into the Material did Room to pick out many nice things for her son & the father of the baby went into the All Purpose Room to talk to the guys.  Rob asked him if he wanted any chicken & potatoes & he said "sure".  So Rob fixed him a plate.  He was delighted.  After the mom was finished shopping she was asked if she wanted anything to eat & she said "yes, please".  So Rob fixed her a plate of what was left over of the chicken & potatoes & salad.  They were very happy & grateful, to say the least.  They were blessed with love, food & clothes tonight.  It did our hearts well too.  God supplies all our needs when we need it.  Amen to that. 
 
See full size imageThey had left & it was time to clean up to get ready for the '40 Days for Life' meeting.  Rick wasn't going to be there tonight but he dropped off some fliers & brochures for me to hand out.  The doorbell started to ring.  We had a good turn out & a great meeting.  It's always good having pro life friends around.  See full size imageWe ended the meeting around 8pm & Martha, John & Rob left.  I immediately went on to the computer & emailed the gang to ask for diapers & formula & non perishable food for our food shelves.  SOS I said.  We were whiped out today, which is a good thing. 

 


 

 

The Story of Baby Douglas

  
Only God knows my real name…one He’s given just to me. He calls me “His Little Lamb.”I was conceived in January of 1936. I know my mother loved me. I lived and grew under her heart. I didn’t get to know my father. Did he ever touch Mommy’s belly and feel me move inside her?  I lived for four months in my little cocoon. Something happened. I stopped living. There must have been sadness that day.  I ended up in a Mason jar in a doctor’s office. I was the perfect specimen of a 4-month gestation baby. They say I was perfect in every way – even down to my tiny fingernails. Perfect, but not alive.  So many, many years I stayed with this doctor. He got old and sold his practice to a younger doctor. I came as part of the deal. When this second doctor, got old and died, his son sold the contents of his house to a very nice couple. They found me in the basement, way back in the cobwebs, up on a shelf. They were shocked and asked the son, “What is this?” The son said, “Oh that thing…I used to take it to school for show and tell.” The nice couple, Dennis and Mary Frances Westfall, were shocked and very touched to find me. They adopted me, and brought me home to look after me. They named me baby Douglas. When the new priest in town came to bless their home, they explained their unusual situation to him. They wanted very much to give me a proper burial. Fr. Joe Catanise said he’d be honored to do this and the funeral plans were set into motion. First, I needed to be visited by the Sheriff’s Department. They wanted to know all kinds of things about where I came from. And the Coroner’s Office was quite curious, as well. My adopted parents were reluctant to part with me, they had come to love me so much, but they entrusted me to Fr. Joe’s good care, and I stayed a short while with him at St. Leo Church. Then I traveled to the Burger Funeral Home in town where I stayed until the day of the funeral. Mr. Burger was very gentle with me.  Two very nice ladies from St. Leo’s who are in charge of Pledge for Life, Patty Buskey and Anna Summa, made all the arrangements for my funeral to be open to the public as a way of offering closure to those who lost a child to miscarriage or abortion. Anna got me a pretty blanket to be wrapped in. It’s very soft and cuddly. The day of my funeral, June 5, 2010, some 74 years after I was conceived, was very special to many people…and to me. Nobody that attended my funeral really knew me. But there were 116 people who came to say good-bye to me. To pray for me and for all babies lost to miscarriage or abortion.  Fr. Joe knew early on whom the perfect priest would be to give the homily at my funeral. Fr. Anthony Mugavero, from Holy Apostles Church in Rochester, came to speak on my behalf – to help all people who had lost someone to miscarriage or abortion, to help heal their wounds. Some never had the chance to remember their lost child in a Mass. So my funeral Mass was really also for all of them. It was called a Mass for the Unborn. Anna and Patty advertised my funeral and invited all those who had lost a child in this way. It was an opportunity for them to find closure. My funeral Mass began with pretty flowers at the altar, and I was in a simple, but beautiful little white casket. I was wrapped snugly in my soft little blanket. I was right up front. And there were two soldiers in fancy hats and capes and carrying swords, as a sort of honor guard for me. They were called Knights of Columbus. It made me feel very special. The music was so moving. The St. Leo Resurrection Choir sang beautifully and led everyone in the hymns chosen just for me. I waited so long for this. To think that the Music Director, Patty Gorman, who had lost a baby many years ago, played so lovingly for me. It must have been very sad for her. She sounded like an angel.  Mr. Burger printed up prayer cards for me and he and Fr. Joe were of the same mind; they gave me my middle name – Leo. It’s perfect - Douglas Leo, as in St. Leo the Great, who was a very brave saint.  Fr. Mugavero spoke so beautifully about love, and that every child is a gift of God. How life is so precious, whether born or unborn. His words were so gentle and kind. He sang the words from a song by a singer named John Denver. “I want to live, I want to grow, I want to see, and I want to know, I want to share what I could give, I want to be, I want to live….” That says everything I would want to say. What could I have become if my life was allowed to develop?  But my coming to being, however short that time was, had a purpose - if for no other reason but to be found and be loved enough to be honored by this funeral. My existence was to help those, who have lost their dear babies, to have closure. I’m proud of that. The folks from Burger Funeral Home found a perfect place for me to rest in the Parma Union Cemetery. The good people who are in charge of the cemetery donated my special place. It’s next to a little girl who was born one year after I was conceived. She lived for six days. I think we will be good friends. I overheard someone at my new home say this funeral helped her have closure for a child she lost. I’m happy for that. Every life, no matter how well lived, matters to our God. He never forgets His creations. He had a purpose for my life, as short as it was. If I have helped one person by my short existence, I have not lived in vain. God bless all the babies. And thank you.

 I’m at peace.  Baby Douglas Leo 

Those of us who attended Douglas Leo’s funeral Mass want him to have a proper headstone. If you have been touched by this story of his little life and his very large impact on others, please consider contributing to his headstone. Donations would be gratefully accepted at St. Leo Church, PO Box 725, 167 Lake Avenue, Hilton NY 14468.  Thank you, Betty Murphy.

Wednesday, August 18, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

It was Martha, Carole, Maria, John & I, out on the front lines, this afternoon, Tucker comes at 4pm & Rose was in the center.  The first thing that happened was that we got a delivery.  A mother, we had helped out at one time, was returning the favor & had brought us 2 used car seats, which we See full size imagecan use for it is a blessing because we have had to throw away so many cars seats, in the past. Even though they look fine if they are out of date, according to the bottom of the seat, we can't give them away.  It can only be used for 6 years after the date purchased.  What a bummer in some cases but we take no chances & throw out the old & pray for some new ones to come in to give to our mothers, for their children, to be safe in a car.  We have them sign a Liability Form, to protect the Focus Pregnancy Help Center.  We were so grateful to her for her kindness to the center & to our clients in need.  God bless her & her sweet child who she brought with her, he was sooo cute.  Just then the doorbell rings & it was Jim with a whole bunch of baby clothes & diapers & formula.  Thanks so much Jim.  He even said to me that if we ever run out to call him & he will buy some diapers & formula ASAP .  Thanks Bill!  What a team of dedicated pro lifers.  Later on in the day I got a phone call from Michael saying that he was headed over to give us bags of diapers & baby wipes & formula.  God is good.  God does supply our needs so quickly through such great people.  Mike came about an hour later with bags of supplies that I requested the day before that he had gotten at Wegnams.  They have a $5 off coupon, on their diapers, which are $5.99 so you end up paying $.99 for the package of diapers, until September 24th..  What a fantastic deal.  I plan to go shopping tomorrow. 

See full size image

 I just found out that we will be blessed again with having the students from the Elim Bible Institute come again this year, during the school year, to work & pray & gain some experience at the Focus Center.  This is great news!! 
 
Martha brought some of the girls into the Material Aid Room to be assisted by Rose in getting some very nice things that we are blessed with.  Thank you all who contribute to the Material Aid Room, in making it be filled with so many nice things for all to receive.  God bless you!! 
 

I was now standing out on the front lines when a woman, from across the See full size imagestreet walking her dog, lit at me light a match.  She started to See full size imagescream at me saying "you're not saving anyone doing what you're doing showing those pictures".  "Oh yes we have, though the grace of God, as of now we aware of 40 babies saved from being killed by abortion & why aren't you mad at Planned Parenthood that is doing the killing"?  "We're trying to save lives".  I asked her if she had an abortion in the past.  So many post abortive woman are so angry & they lash out at us all the time especially driving by.  She just walked in a huff to her car in the vets parking lot.

Thursday & Sunday, August 19th. & 22nd., 2010 

It was Martha, Bill, John & I out on the front lines today & Rose & Deanna in the center.  Suzanne was out of the office today with another commitment so Deanna was there today working in the office, calling our pregnant clients to see how they were doing & to see if they needed anything that we could help them with.  She had just a few girls &all were well with them & then she called our another client & out came 'the can of worms'.  She needed food for See full size imageherself & her 2 year old daughter.  Well this was not an easy task but informative, to say the least.  We called some the Food Pantries & found out that most of them need referrals & several ID's, for proof of person, etc..  Wow!  She thought that she would have enough food for the weekend & after that her Food Stamps would kick in.  We don't want to make our clients dependent on us, we want them to learn to be self sufficient, so we act as a intermittent care facility, for just a short time before they can get assistance for a longer time.  We are a there for them in a pinch, I should say.  We learned about the system with this one call to our client.   Deanna made out a Referral Sheet to have on hand for clients that come in & need to go to a Food Pantry so she will have it in her hands to give to them, without any problems to quick & ready service.  We want the best for our clients who we hold in our hearts & prayers.

I went back outside to be with the team only to see that the Death Escort was ready for her next victim to devour.  Not on my watch dearie.  I read Planned Parenthood's newsletter called, 'Informed Choice'. You hypocrites!  Your only choice is death, you make no money when lives are saved.  You've pushed us pro lifers 80 feet away from the Planned Parenthood's door so that the people going in there won't hear or get the Truth.  We pro lifers are out there speaking the Truth & giving literature packets, of the Truth, it's just a bit far away.  You don't want to lose any customers....you just want to ruin lives!!!!  We want to to save & restore lives!!! 

I went back outside to be with the team only to see that the Death Escort was ready for her next victim to devour.  Not on my watch dearie.  I read in the Planned Parenthood newsletter called, 'Informed Choice'.  You hypocrites!  Your only choice is 'death' you make no money when lives are 'saved'.  You've pushed us pro lifers, 80 feet away from the door, so that the people going in there won't hear or get the Truth to change their minds.  That's your 'informed choice'?  You ruin lives & souls at Planned Parenthood.  After their 'choice for death' the first reaction is usually relief then when time goes on this turns to pain, shame, grief & guilt.  That's what you do to the women & girls that you deceive. 

See full size imageI also read, in you so called 'Informed Choice' newsletter, that a volunteer with your Rape Crisis is a pagan & a witch.  What a 'good witch', is this the Wizard of Oz??  No thank you. The thought of having her at my bedside, if a violent crime had just taken place, would be a double trauma.  I would want a good pro life woman to be there instead, who loves God & life.  Please check out: http://www.childpredators.com/.

The abortionist, Rachael Phelps, wasn't at Planned Parenthood, this week, killing little babies, thank God. I just received this email on Sunday from a friend in Syracuse. I just found Rachael Phelps,she was in Syracuse, doing her evil there. 

This was printed in the Syracuse.Com http://www.syracuse.com/

Please read it and weep:

Medication abortion can save lives of women.

To the Editor:

Medication abortion has been a safe and legal option for women in the United States for almost 10 years. Virginia Black, in her Aug. 12 letter, suggested medication abortion is not safe. However, as can happen when non-medical people try to address medical issues, she does not have all the facts. Medication abortion is a safe option for many women with risks similar to miscarriage.

However, the Nicholas Kristof column, referenced by Black, specifically addressed the impact of medication abortion in developing countries. Unsafe abortion is one of the leading causes of maternal death and illness around the world. It is also one of the most preventable. More than 19 million unsafe abortions take place each year, and 95 percent occur in poor countries.

What Black overlooked was the context of Kristof’s column, in which he stated that Misoprostol “pills are beginning to revolutionize abortion around the world, especially in poor countries (where) one result may be tens of thousands of women’s lives saved each year.”

Black calls the use of abortion pills in developing countries “shocking,” but what is truly shocking is the 70,000 women who die and the almost a quarter of a million children who are orphaned each year from unsafe abortion that could be prevented with access to safe health services like medication abortion. If medication abortion can help, that is a step forward!

Tuesday, August 24, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

See full size imageWhen you think that you have experienced the worst of the worst you find out that you were wrong. The behavior & language out there today was unbelievable. I know that I'm at the most evil place on the face of the Earth, where that murder people, so what do I expect? I always hope for the best but I'm not going to get it at an abortion mill, really. 

See full size imageWhen I arrived at the center there was Martha, Beverly & John there.  Mary S., Donna, Carole, Carmen & Rob followed.  Sandy was in the center & Rose was not coming in today.  We'll see her tomorrow.  Melody came in later to work in the center. 

I finally got to the front lines only to hear that Planned Parenthood's ground keeper was giving us trouble about the buffer zone's, 15 feet restriction, which is Unconstitutional, to say the least!!  He was told by Planned Parenthood that it was 25 feet so he painted a 'yellow line' 25 feet from the entrance & is bugging us about it.  We measured 15 feet & put a 'black line' down to show the true distance that we can stand, in front of See full size imagePlanned Parenthood's Killing Mill.  Wow, what a lie they told him!  I wish that I could find a good Attorney to work on this case to get us our Constitutional rights back.  Rob had the Injunction papers with him & he showed this employee the paper work.  He said that he has been working for Planned Parenthood since 1994 & he has three children, who he has to feed.  I think  they're probably are all grown up by now, so don't give us this nonsense.  Get a job that you're not paid in Blood Money, sir.  He said that he was a Christian & he was wearing a cross around his neck.  Hear we go again!!  Christians that betray Christ & work in a place that kills His precious children!!  Go figure!  This Injunction Appeal in 2002, brings back bad memories, though it was well worth it to save lives.  We did win this appeals case in 2002, from the Injunction Case that we lost, in Buffalo's Federal Court in 1999.  Check it out: http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?navby=search&case=/data2/circs/2nd/009076.html.  Lots of reading with this appeal decision.  God protected us pro lifers, from this gross injustice, when we were trying to save lives of precious babies & their mothers, at Planned  Parenthood.  Thank you Lord.  Amen. 

A van came into Planned Parenthood with an older woman driving it.  I called out to her that she was driving into a Killing Mill & that we could help the girl that was with her.  But to no avail for they got out of their car & went into See full size imagePlanned Parenthood.  When she came out, about 20 minutes later, she said to me "shut up you --------- we're not here for an abortion".  I was shocked that an elderly woman would talk to another person that way, & one who was trying to help her family.  I said " why would you trust murders"?  I was upset to say the least.  Then all of a sudden a woman, who must have been lying down in the front seat, appeared out of no where & said to me " don't talk to my grandmother like that or I'll get out of the car & punch you in the face".  I guess it's 911 time.  So I got my phone out of my pocket & pretended to call 911.  The oh so sweet See full size imagegrandmother said to me "do you want my license number"?  So co operative you are!  I said "that won't be necessary, for I'll just look on your license plate for the number, thank you".  Well, off they went in 6 seconds to wherever.  This tactic usually works every time.  It's used to get rid of nasty people in a hurry before there is any incident, on their part.  When she came back, about a half hour later, to pick up her other granddaughter, she said to me "what don't you speak a litter louder, so I said back to her "okay, & by the way, we love you".  After she picked up her other granddaughter, on the way out, she gave me the 'bird', you go Granny, you give the elderly a bad name.  Ick!!

See full size imageWe had many young girls come in for baby & children clothes & See full size imagethe Material Aid Room was so busy. We also had drop off of food & diapers for our moms. It is so heartwarming when we see our moms so happy with what they just received. God is Great!!  

I was on the front lines with 7 pro lifers & it was difficult seeing the cars go into Planned Parenthood getting ready to have their precious baby killed by the abortionist Rachael Phelps.  It's like being in a continual nightmare standing near a building that is killing small babies (people (human beings) in the womb) one right after another.  How Evil & disheartening.  It's like being on the front lines of war seeing people get killed & there's nothing that you can do to stop it, only trying to defend those who are on the ground.  We call out to the mothers offering them help & love See full size image& a future but some of them just want to go in there to get 'unpregnant' again, in matter of minutes, rather than months when they can bring forth another human being, created by God, to live on planet Earth & to have a life & be productive here.  When they drive out of the Killing Mill I usually say "I hope that you didn't have your baby killed here today, if you did I pray that you repent for the sin of murder".  I then get sworn at & the finger.  Their hell has just begun.  We can only pray that they will ask God to forgive them, He will. 

 
After being out on the front lines we came into the center to do some things & See full size imageto get ready for our supper.  I brought a eggplant lasagna, garlic bread & chocolate covered brownies with walnuts. Martha & Janet' brought a nice salad & we had our favorite drink Cranberry juice.  We hurried to eat all this food & to get ready for the '40 Days for Life' meeting which was a good turn out of dedicated people.  It was a great meeting with a lot accomplished.  Went home late. 

 


Wednesday, August 25, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

I was walking to church this noon with John & I heard a guy on his cell phone say a very nasty word.  I turned around & told him that there was a Church here & for him to watch his mouth.  He said "it's your Church, not mine".  I then said "See full size imagethis is where God reigns".  He then said, in such a rude tone of voice, "mind your own business" & he said it several times, as I was walking up the stairs, to the Church where Father was celebrating Mass.  I thought later that it was my business to speak Truth to him no matter if he liked it or not.  One of the gifts of the Holy Spirit is Holy Boldness, just trust in the Lord for it.  We must correct in love that's a Corporal Work of Mercy.  We are responsible to correct those who are misguided for their repentance & renewal.  The Holy Sprit was a working on him, for a 'seed' was planted, in his soul.  After Mass John, Martha & I went to the center where Ryan & Ryan & Carole came a little while later, to witness the Truth.  Rose was now back in the center to work hard & make great sandwiches for us, for lunch.    
 
Yesterday the Landscaper got in our faces about where to stand on the sidewalk.  He was told by Planned Parenthood to paint a yellow line 25 feet from the entrance of the driveway, which is See full size imagewrong.  Yesterday Rob tried to explain to him & he showed him the 2002 Injunction, that said where we can stand, so we hope that he understood what Rob was saying & to leave us alone from now on.  About 2 hours later the police drove into Planned Parenthood & went in. He went into the front door only then to go into the side door & come out.  I had my Injunction papers ready for him but he didn't stop & he left, never to return again.  Yeah :) 
 
I was walking out of the center to go onto the sidewalk when I saw one of our graphic signs next to the tree in front of our nemesis, Buckpitt, which is a business right next to Planned Parenthood.  They have resented us being in front of their business, for the last 8 years, when we won the appeal.  Get over it guys for this is where the Judge said we could be.  Please take it up with the Federal Court so that we can be right in front of Planned Parenthood, to talk to the girls as they are going into that death trap.  Well, as I was walking over to the tree to get the sign to put it closer to us near the other See full size imagetree that we stand beside, the guy from Buckpitt, who was painting the building said "I don't want that there".  I turned around at him & said in a stern voice "it doesn't matter what you want it's not your tree, not because you said so I'm moving the sign closer to us here on the front lines".  He answered back "your very angry".  I said back to him "oh yes I am, they're killing babies at Planned Parenthood & all you do is give us trouble all the time".  I then walked away with our precious sign of a mutilated baby that was murdered by abortion.  What is the matter with these people?  Why don't they care?  Later on I went over to him & said that if ever you want to talk to me I'd be more than glad to set something up.  He never replied & I walked away.  I'm trying to get along with these people.  Lord help me!! 
 
I got a call on my cell phone asking for a pregnancy test.  She didn't live very far away & she said that she would be over in 20 minutes.  When she arrived See full size imagewith her boyfriend, Martha lead them into the Rose Room for the pregnancy test & for counseling.  In the meantime I had given a pregnancy test & counseled one young girl earlier.  We gave away many baby & children's clothes today too.  Rose was very busy. 

  


Thursday, 26, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

There was John & I who opened up the center & right behind us was a young mom with her son in a stroller.  Deanna just came with her niece, who is 7 years old, she was baby-sitting her today at Focus, what a joy she is.  I asked her if she could assist this mother with her son in the Material Aid Room, she said that she would.  I asked John if he would start to get the signs & things out onto the front lines to start to counsel the girls & guys going into the Killing Mill.  Tony, Deanna's father, helped John set up on the sidewalk.  Rose just came in & I had some assignments for her to do, which she quickly See full size imagestarted.  Frank came in to look over the Conference Room, which we might rent out, to start painting tomorrow morning.  Can't wait.  Should look great when finished & then we have to ask out Landlord to put in a nice & durable rug in for us.  This room should be great!!  Thank you Lord for this  Conference Room, an unexpected surprise, to advance our center's work. 

I got a call on my cell phone and a client came in for a pregnancy test.  Martha counseled her in the Rose Room.  Deanna was kept busy doing paper work & organizing & Suzanne was busy calling our clients to see how they were See full size imagedoing & to see if they needed anything.  She got through to some clients but some phone numbers were disconnected, when that happens we send out a letter.  We want to make sure, if possible, to connect with our clients.

See full size imageOutside we were plagued with a swarm of bees which Martha is deadly allergic to.  Scary!!  We had to make sure that the bees were not around Martha.  See full size imageIt was hot & our 'corn man' came again to drop off a full bag of corn from the Public Market.  All Summer long I have not been able to see him, for when he comes I've been in the center.  Darn!  I do hope that I get to see him at least once before the Fall to thank him for all the great corn all Summer long.  God bless this man. 

A young woman was looking at us from across the street & I noticed that she was preparing to cross over the street to us.  I say a quick prayer that all will go well. She approached us & was pleasant.  She was for 'life' & not for 'death' for these little innocent little babies.  We all agreed that abortion was evil & that it took a life of a human being.  All was going well until I just mentioned that the Peace Sign that she was wearing on her hat was really an inverted cross.  There I lost her.  She became defensive & said that someone else had told her that too but until God tells her she won't believe it.  I told her that God just did tell you, for He speaks to us through one another.  She saw See full size imagethat we had a statue of the Blessed Mother out there on the front lines, on a table.  She walked over to the statue & said that's Mother Mary & that we were worshipping her.  We said no we are not, we are honoring her, because she is the Mother of God.  She became more uncomfortable & then walked away.  For her to recognize the statue as Mother Mary, we think that she was an ex-Catholic. People who leave the Catholic Church are so hard to witness to.  We hold her in our hearts & hope that she comes back to the One True Catholic Church, founded by Christ, 2,000 years ago.  We love people of all faiths.

See full size imageThere were people who were very supportive of our street ministry & gave us support.  When some one is attacking us verbally some one will drive by & holler out their window "keep up the great work that you're doing".  Yea, we will & thank you for your love & support we certainly need it. 

Deanna was bring out paper work for me to sign & to send out.  She has been such a blessing to us this Summer.  She'll be going back to England to See full size imagecontinue her ministry there.  What a Christian!  The Lord sends us people when we need then & I praise Him for it.  We are growing as a ministry & as a center.  We will be having our second Mass at the center next Wednesday evening, celebrating our 5th. year Anniversary on the Birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Yeah!!  Happy Birthday Mother Mary... & Happy Birthday to the Focus Center.  Time flies, that's for sure.


Friday, August 27, 2010 at the Focus Center 

Earlier this week I had called my landlord to the Focus Center to ask him if we could use the Great Room, which is empty & available to rent out, for our '40 Days for Life' rally on September 21st..  He said "sure you can use for nothing but I want you to have the room".  "What" I said, "what do you mean"?  He See full size imagesaid I believe in what you're doing & I'm used to you & I really don't want to rent to strangers, so I'll give you the room for $800 plus the three rooms that you're renting now for $1,000".  I said "Bernie I don't know if I can do it, that's $1,800 a month"?  "Sure you can Mary just pray about it".  I said Bernie the Lord wants to hear from you".  He's an agnostic.  I said "I'll have to notify the Board first & can we paint the room".  "Sure & I'll put down new carpeting too".  Oh Lord what are you up to?  I notified the Board & all said "yes' to this new adventure See full size image& advancement of the Focus Center.  So Martha asked her ex See full size imagehusband to paint for us & he said that her would.  So we picked out the colors, a salmon, for the 2 accent walls, then the main walls a creamy beige. Should look real nice...

I was headed over to the center on Friday morning to help out & to get Frank lunch for his service.  When I arrived I saw the Planned Parenthood's landscaper, on his knees, scrubbing off the yellow line, which was a correct line for the See full size imageunconstitutional buffer zone, by the tree.  I briskly walked over to him & said "what are you doing scrubbing the correct yellow line & wiping off our pregnancy help line in sidewalk chalk. what is the matter with you".  He stood up & pointed the can of acetone right in my face & I pushed his arm away from my face.  If he would have sprayed my face & would have called the police & had him arrested.  I said you're working for those people that kill children & I pointed to the abortionist car that was parked in the parking lot, I pointed to it & said "she kills little babies".  I said that you're wearing your cross under your shirt, it will burn a hole in you, please get out of here".  He left in a huff.  So he scrubbed off the real 'Buffer Zone' yellow line that we See full size imagemeasured 15 feet.  "It's fine with me" I told him, now there isn't a yellow line.  Duh!  We finally notified our Attorney & she will write a letter to Planned Parenthood to set them straight about where the 'yellow line' should be.  It really doesn't matter because the good Lord s working miracles out there all the time no matter how far away we have to stand.  For the Lord has no boundaries, do I hear an Amen.. 

I walked back into the center to see how Frank was doing, he's a fast painter & he's doing a great job!  Thanks Frank.  Just then the doorbell rang & it was three young girls.  They asked if they could get a pregnancy test, all three of the girls.  Okay girls 'come follow me'.  After I ministered to them they went into the Material Aid Room to get some clothes for their children at home & the little one that was with them.  They were very happy & so was I.  For all three girls were negative.  I wanted to go to Church & to Confession before Mass started so I hurried now to go.  When I arrived at Church there was a line & I was hoping to make it into the Confessional, which I did.  When I was waiting in line the front door opened & there was Martha coming into the Church, I was so surprised.  Thank you Lord for I sure need her today.  How He provides.  After Mass we went over to the Pizza place on the corner to get See full size imagelunch for Frank, Martha & I.  Tuna supreme subs, yummy.  When we arrived at the center we all ate our lunch & then back to work we went.  Frank finished the accent walls & was coming back on Monday to start the other walls.  Great job he's doing.  Martha & I decided to go over to the Woman's Care Center to get the baby & children clothes & baby food that they had for us.  How nice that they're sharing their plenty with us.  They help us & we help them, it's called team work.  Before we left the doorbell rang & it was a young girl asking for a pregnancy test, & she had her boyfriend with her. We ministered to her & she had a 9 year son so I sent her into the Material Aid Room to get what she needed for him.  Nice couple. 

Before we were going to the Woman's Care Center we went over to one of our client's house to give her a paper that she needed for DSS, unfortunately we just missed her.  I called her on her cell phone & she will stop by the center next Tuesday to pick it up.  Now off to the Woman's Care Center.  We were blessed there with many nice things for our center & also lots of literature that we needed & they had.  I was very greedy & I told them so.  See full size imageThey asked if I needed a bag I said "sure" with my head down.  Oh well, you take the opportunity when it's before you.  Right!  They were very helpful with so many things & I will be kept busy, making phone calls... all to better the Focus Center.  I will be calling for 'free' bibles & for Excellus Blue Cross/ Blue Shield brochures for the center.   I'll put them right next to Fidelis Care.  Then our clients can have a choice with their Health Insurance coverage plan.  That will be good for their bodies & the Bibles will be good for their souls.  Martha & I thanked our friends & off we went to the next stop.  The bank!  I needed to deposit all our checks, that we were blessed with, for our work at Focus.  What a blessing our benefactors are to us... God bless them all.  Our next stop was to go to Wegmans Grocery Store, tSee full size imageo clip coupons for a great deal on baby diapers & baby wipes, for our clients.  We got at least 5 bags of diapers & 5 packages of wipes. The center needs these items & baby formula the most, then the baby clothes & children clothes & small items.  We are supplied for a while due to all the great people that dropped off these items when I recently sent out an SOS email, for these   items.  The response was fantastic!!  Love you guys :)

Next stop was supper, my treat Martha!!!  

 


Monday, August 30, 2010 at the Focus Center

I went to the center today to see hoe Frank was coming along with the painting & t get him lunch after Mass at noon.  When I arrived he was already done with the big wall & he said that he will return to do the largest wall tomorrow.  He showed my some wires on the wall & later on I called the landlord to see if he could check to see if they are alive or dead wires.  Always something of a challenge.  The landlord said that he will stop by tomorrow with his testing kit to see what is going on.  I don't want a fire in See full size imagethere that's for sure.  We have no smoke alarms but we do have an Fire Extinguisher, at least.  I think that we should have both for we have a lot of people in the building.  I don't want anyone to get hurt or killed.  I'm surprised that the City Inspectors didn't catch that he doesn't have any smoke alarms in the building.  Oh brother...
 

As I was talking to Frank, asking him what he wanted for lunch, the doorbell rang.  I went to the door & there was  a young girl.  I asked if I could help her & she said that she needed a pregnancy test.  I was headed to church early for my Holy Hour but I new that the dear Lord had sent her to me to take care of.  I did.  She took the test & I counseled her in how to act & to dress more modestly.  She said that she has a 1 year old sister & I said that we had some nice things in the Material Aid Room for her to get for her sister.  Then the doorbell rang again & I walked to the door seeing that there was 2 women & 6 See full size imagechildren.  I almost fainted for I knew that this was going to be a challenge & it was.  I lead them into the Material Aid Room & then went back to finish up with the client. I'm not nor anyone else is here on Mondays or Fridays, in the morning, so it was Providential, that I was hear today to take care of these people.  When I came back into the Material Ad Room I saw that one of the women had taken all 7 dresses off of the wall that were hanging there & she was putting them in her bag.  I quickly said to her that we need to save some dresses for our other clients that she could take two.  She said that the other girl said that we could take as much as we wanted.  "Oh yes" I said but that's within reason.  She said that the other woman that was with her had 8 children & she had 4, with a little girl on her way.   All the kids were dumping things on the floor & making such a mess.  I said to her that if you were at K- Mart right now shopping you wouldn't let your children do what they're doing in here.  She said something in Spanish & they calmed down a bit.  I went back to the counseling room & told the client that just took a pregnancy test to come on into the Material Ad Room to get something's for her sister. She got in there & got some nice things.  She forgot her Truth packet that I gave her in the Rose Room so I will send it to her in the mail.  See full size imageAfter everyone had left I did some more work in the center & then left to go to the noon Mass downtown & after that I went to get my car inspected. I made it by 2 days. To close for  comfort.  It's a $75 ticket.  Not good..... 

See full size imageThe sidewalk counselor who is on Monday evenings called me to say that he & Pat, our counselor in the center, were very busy handing out baby & children's clothes. What a day!  Thank you Lord for your goodness & grace.

 


 
Tuesday, August 31, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
Martha & John went to get subs for our lunch & also for Frank who is See full size imagepainting out new Event Room, that we were just blessed with, by God.  I went to the center to get started by myself & I thought that Sandy & Rose were coming to help me but they both called in.  Now I know how an employer feels.  I do appreciate all that our volunteers do, for the work at the Focus Center, I do depend on them so much.  I hope & pray that they both feel better soon.  Love ya!  So I just prayed to God that I could get things done to get ready to go to the front lines soon to defend life.  Jerry came & set up the signs outside & started to pray on his knees across the street from Planned Parenthood.  Martha & John & Rob arrived soon after.  Carole came a little later & set up more signs & was a witness to the people going in & out of Planned Parenthood & the cars driving by us.  Donna came around 2pm instead of 1pm, she said that she slept in, which is okay, she deserves to.  What a dedicated team of pro lifers that come on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays  to 'defend life'.  Martha didn't come right out because she was kept busy in the Material Aid Room helping our clients.  One of the moms said See full size imagethat she was told by the Salvation Army that she could get free diapers & formula at our center.  Wow!  A couple of days ago I had stopped at a red light & was heading to the center when I rolled down my window to give a mom with a baby in a stroller our brochure.  She said "oh, I've heard of you before, thanks".  Wow!  God is Great & we are so happy to be able to help people in the Community temporarily with their needs. 
 

John & I were on one side of Planned Parenthood using the mega phone & Rob was on the other side of Planned Parenthood using the mega phone & Jerry, Martha & Carole were across the street from Planned Parenthood witness for 'life'.  We had them surrounded.  We were praying & witnessing the Truth.  Many car that drove by surprised us by honking we also had a few people that gave us the 'bird', which means that they are guilty of something.  We pray that they 'repent' before they die.

A man, in a truck, drove into the parking lot & was delivering something to Planned Parenthood.  We called over to him to tell him what they do in there to little babies but the Death Escort, Silvia Rose, went over to him to greet him.  I was holding the precious aborted baby sign Malachi when he drove out & he gave me the finger.  I know that he is a Post Abortive Dad.  How sad!!  No one in their right mind would give their finger to a female holding a sign of an innocent aborted baby, if they themselves weren't involved in an abortion.  Please check out: http://ramahinternational.org/who-affected-abortion.html & http://ramahinternational.org/for-post-abortive-men.html & http://www.leaderu.com/orgs/tul/pap1.html &  http://www.menandabortion.info/.

I was still across the street when an angry woman got out of her car & came over to me saying "do you know why I'm here".  I answered her back saying See full size image"they kill babies in there", I knew in my heart what she was about to say next.  "I'm here for rape counseling".  I said to her that I was gang raped & I wouldn't come her for counseling because they kill babies in there".  Then she pulled up her dress to show mw her butt.  I guess this was her statement to me that she didn't care.  Maybe she had gotten pregnant from the rape & she had an abortion?  I don't know but I crossed over the street to tell that she could get her dignity back by going to a real & caring counselor & that she deserved that.  She walked into Planned Parenthood to get re victimized again by people that work in a place that kills little babies.  I wouldn't trust them that's for sure!!  Please check out: http://www.boundless.org/regulars/kaufman/a0000848.html & http://www.priestsforlife.org/articles/rapeandabortion.html & http://www.lifenews.com/nat6223.html.

 


Wednesday, September 1, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

It was a good day because the abortionist, at Planned Parenthood, doesn't kill babies there on Wednesdays, which is a good thing.  There is nothing that makes me more happy than a baby not being killed by abortion.  I gave a See full size imagepregnancy test to a girl that had been taking the Depo Provera shot & was very upset that she was having very serve side effects from the shot.  Check out: http://www.all.org/article.php?id=10133 & http://www.prolife.com/BIRTHCNT.html.  I encouraged her to go see her doctor for a mammogram for the lumps that she said that she discovered in her breasts.  She regrets that she ever took the shots.  "That messed me up", she said. She took the pregnancy test & the Truth packet with lots of information in it & some children's clothes for her 2 & 4 year old sons.  She was very grateful for all that she had learned today at Focus. The bible says "that you shall KNOW the Truth & the Truth shall set you free".
 
After I saw her two more ladies came in for baby & children clothes. The one girl had twin girls who were 2 years old & her sister, who just found out at Planned Parenthood, that she was pregnant.  She was so very happy & was not abortion minded at all.  She escaped their agenda of 'death' for her little baby.  I gave them the Growth & Development DVD & the Maafia 21: Black Genocide in the 21st. Century DVD to educate them.  I had a pocket New Testament on the table, as I counseled them in the Rose Room, & one of the girls took it.  Happy & blessed reading to you my dear.  After they left, about an hour later a mother & her pregnant daughter came into the center See full size imagefor baby & children's clothes.  The mom had 7 children, 6 girls & 1boy.  She came into get some clothes for her family & for her new grand baby, who is 16 weeks old, in her daughter's womb.  The new mom took some baby blankets & some other things, for she doesn't know if she's going to have a little boy or girl, at this time.  She said that she was going next week for an ultrasound that will determine the sex of the baby.  I told her that when she finds out that she can come back for baby clothes, at that time.  It was a great moment  celebrating 'life' of our past 2 clients.  Very refreshing helping these new moms, rather than them going into Planned Parenthood, to have their precious babies be murdered by Rachael Phelps, the abortionist there.  It's like night & day. 

Excellus Bluecross BlueShield logoMartha, John & Maria were outside witnessing with Carole & Rose in the center putting away baby & children clothes that we had just received from our benefactors.  Busy afternoon.  Just then the doorbell rang & it was Nancy from Excellus Blue Cross/ Blue Shield at the door.  I had called for some information & brochures to be given to the center for our clients.  She was very nice & I then recognized her as the lady that took care of me when I was applying for my Healthy New York, after I lost my job back in January of 2009, after our company had closed.  She was very nice & I was glad to see her again. She was very helpful to me & she left us many brochures for our future clients.  She new Anne, the President from 'Rochester Right to Life'.  Small world. 

I went outside for a few minutes & I was stopped by a man who was delivering something at the Veterinary Hospital, which is across the street from Planned Parenthood.  He walked over to me & said that he was a See full size imageKnight, from St. Jude's Parish.  I quickly went to give him one of our brochures & asked him for donations for our center's work.  He said that he would look into it.  He's name was Phil & he asked if I would make up a sign that will read :

'Why is America committing Genocide against it's own people with more than 55 million babies killed since 1973'?? 

Good question Phil, what's wrong with America for allowing this Genocide to take place??  What agenda, is America supporting, as they betray Almighty God??  We should be better than this!!

See full size imageMartha, John, Carole & Maria & I were outside to witness & to counsel taking all the abuse that comes to us by the people driving & walking by us & those who are at Planned Parenthood.  That's a part of the ministry.  You learn to live with it.  We do it to try to save & to change lives through the grace of God. 

Martha & I went into the center to do some work there & Tucker came into the center, to get his sign & then to go outside to witness until 6pm. Well this afternoon he stayed & talked to Martha & I for about an half an hour.  He was about to leave when one of the drivers from the Taxi company came over to us in the All Purpose Room asking if he could use a chair of ours.  I said "yes" thinking that he was setting up for a meeting when all of a sudden he placed See full size imagethe chair on the floor & stood on it & then preceded to rip the Taxi's antenna right out of the ceiling & he ran outside with it in his hands.  We were all in shock & I then knocked on the door of the Taxi company & said to Alan that one of the drivers just came in & ripped the antenna right out of the ceiling.  He said "what"!  Then he said that he was going to call the bosses right away, which he did, because when I went to the outside door I saw that they were out there, in the parking lot, & the driver who had just stolen the antenna was arguing with them.  Unfortunately a little while later they had brought him back into the building & that's when the troubles just got started with me.  One of the bosses had asked me what had happened when the guy was right next to him.  I started to tell him what has just happened when the 'bad guy' said to me "mind your own business" with an evil eye pointed right to me.  I said back that it was my business because this was our pregnancy See full size imagecenter  here to.  Then he said "mind your own business or I'll stab you". "What" I said, "what did you just say to me"?   Well, the first rule is that if anyone threatens our life then we must call the police to report it, for we won't have anyone threaten us, for no one has that right to put us in jeopardy. 

Then my second hell began, the police came.  You would think that they would be See full size imageon my side, since I called them regarding the threat that was made to me but remember that we live in an imperfect world.  They  wounded me a second time with their not understanding of what had just taken place & their unbelief of what he had said to me.  The one police officer made some really strange comments that were unbelievable & quite inappropriate, to say the least.  I thought that I was in the 'Twilight Zone' (for those of you that know what I'm talking about)!!   It was the second nightmare of the day.  Martha went around sprinkling some Holy Salt around the rooms, for what was happening was demonic, to say the least.  Martha spoke to the one police officer to set him straight & I was left with the other, poor me.  Well I got no where fast & they finally left.  I decided not to make a citizens arrest for Martha didn't have in her hearing aid so she didn't hear him say that to me.  That was far, if she didn't then she didn't but I did.  So it was his word against my word, & that's that.  He latter apologized for what he said to me with the prompting of Martha who said that we should all just get along.  Blessed are the peace makers.  So he started to approach me & I backed off & accepted his apology from a far.  That'll do.  To say the least it was a very stressful time that was most unexpected, in the center. 

It was 6pm & the landlord came in, saying to me "I heard that you called the police".  I answered back to him "so you have a police radio Bernie".  No answer.  We had an appointment with the man, from Christian Rugs tonight, to pick out the color for the new rug in the new Great Room.  This turned out not as exciting as it should have because of all the commotion earlier on.  See full size imageNeedless to say I picked out a nice multi colored rug & the landlord worked out a payment plan.  It will be put in next Tuesday at 12 noon, just in time for our special Wednesday Mass, in the new Great Room, to celebrate the Blessed Mother's Birthday & the Focus Pregnancy Help Center's 5 years of service, in helping pregnant moms & their families, in the community.  Should be a great evening, can't wait!

Martha had to go, the stress was to much for her & I was left straightening See full size imageout the center until it was done.  That's the job of the Director & that's fine with me.  Later on she told me that she had gone to church, to pray to God, before the Blessed Sacrament.  What a stressful day but a day of blessings too.  God always turns things around & makes it for good.  I just need to trust Him more, for He is forever faithful.    

 


Thursday, September 2, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

Outside on the sidewalk we had Martha, Bill, John, I & two other pro lifers, who were praying on the other side of the building, of Planned Parenthood today with Rose & Deanna inside the center.  Carole came by, which was a See full size imagesurprise because she doesn't usually come on Thursdays, but to our shock she said that her little grand daughter Payton, who was born 4 weeks ago at 1lb. 7ozs., was dying.  I gave her a hug & said that we are holding little Payton in our hearts & prayers.  This was a sad moment.  She told us that if she's not here next week she'll  be in Ohio where her daughter & Son in Law are.  Let's pray for a miracle dear Lord to let baby Payton to live & please bless the family with peace.  Thank you Lord Jesus. A few minutes later the cars began to go into Planned Parenthood to have their precious children be killed by the abortionist Rachael Phelps.  One baby is born & is trying to survive & the other babies are not born yet & are trying to survive.  Why are some mothers killing their own children, rather then loving & protecting them, like Carole's daughter is?  This scenario is really strange. 

I just then got a call & it was a client of ours needing some diapers & wipes & clothes for her baby.  I told her to come on in & we'll give her some.  Later See full size imageafter she arrived she told me that her grandmother had taken her baby & all his clothes, without her permission, when she was in her parents house, where she is now living.  She called the police & they told her to get an order of protection out on the grandmother & to press Kidnapping charges against her.  She & her mother got her son back the next day after the grandmother dropped the baby off at Day Care.  What was she thinking?  I gave her a bag of diapers & a box of wipes & she picked out some baby clothes, to hold her off, until she could get the clothes back from the grandmother.  She wasn't sure how that would happen.  So the Focus Center was there for her during this difficult time & I was glad of that.  I gave her some special personal items like a basket full of soaps, candles & lotions for herself that made her very happy.  My heart melted when she gave me a big smile back & a hug with a 'thank you' besides.  "My pleasure" I said back.  She, like all our clients & their children, are so dear to our hearts & are in our prayers too.  Off she & her precious baby were off to catch the bus downtown.  Keep in touch I said to her as she was leaving.  She turned around & said that she would.  That made me very happy.

I was now back to the front lines & the pro lifers there were praying & sidewalk counseling.  A few minutes later Deanna arrived to work in the center.  I followed her into the center & then gave her some instructions.  I needed some letters to be written & some other small projects for her to do.  I See full size imagewas sad because this was her last day with us for she's going back to England to do her mission work there.  We'll all miss her that's for sure & she's been such a blessing to us over the past 4 weeks that she's been with us.   The very best to dear Deanna.  She said that she'll be back in the US at Christmas time & we'll see her then again :) 
 

When I went back outside I brought some bottled water from the refrig, for it was a very hot day.  The team was glad to see me that's for sure.  Just then the cars were coming out of Planned Parenthood & the girls had there heads down & the boyfriends were shouting at us.  They had their precious baby be killed here today & now are tormented by our graphic signs, that was suppose to save their baby's life, but they wouldn't listen & they went through with it, paying the assassin to kill their God given child.  How Evil, how Inhumane & how Insane.  My heart drops when they come out of Planned See full size imageParenthood & of course when they go in too.  Lives, through the grace of God, have been saved but many lives have been lost, which is so difficult for  Martha & I especially because we are usually the ones that are there when they come out 'looking like death warmed over' slumped either in the fron or back seat of the car, the rest of the team are usually gone at that time.  Maybe we should be gone too, for it's so hard for Martha & I?   We only hope & pray that they will ask God to forgive them for this sin of 'murder' (which abortion is) with a sincere heart of repentance & God will forgive them, otherwise they are putting their souls in jeopardy, of going to Hell forever, for this Mortal Sin. 

The doorbell rang & I went to open the door.  I saw three young girls, See full size imagestanding there.  I asked if I could help them & two of the girls said that they were here for a pregnancy test, the third girl was pregnant.  I lead them to the Rose Room for testing & counseling.  I asked the two girls to fill out an Intake Sheet.  The one girl said "is this Planned Parenthood"?  I looked at her in surprise & said "no it's not, they kill babies at Planned Parenthood, we're a pregnancy center where we save lives".  The first test was done - negative, the second test was done - negative.  I started to teach about self respect & abstinence.  These girls were very young but not as young as the pregnant little girl for she was 14 years old.  It made me very upset that a boy took advantage of her at 14.  Where was the mother who works in the church??  Don't get me wrong I'm so glad that she's having her baby & not killing her child, that's not the point. That's a given, for when you're pregnant, you stay that way, no matter what your situation is  'YOU NEVER KILL YOUR BABY'!!  The questions are: why do these girls have no boundaries & why don't they know how to say "NO" & why are they getting themselves in these situations, with these inconsiderate, sex minded guys, that are using them for their pleasure.  I want to make the bad things that happen to them go away but I can't.  That's why prayer & education is so important along with our love & guidance, that we give them at the Focus Center, is so important, for a 'new See full size imagebeginning'.  Where are their mothers & fathers??  Where are the Preachers & Teachers, in the Community??  They all seem to know where Planned Parenthood is!!  That EVIL place that kills babies & ruins peoples lives.  What is wrong with this picture?  When I found out that she was 14 I asked her to fill out an Intake Sheet so that Suzanne can call her, at times, to see how she is doing & if she needs anything.  I also gave her some helpful brochures to take with her & told her to call them to get some assistance during her pregnancy & afterwards.  We'll be there for her too.  I also gave her the Growth & Development DVD & the movie Bella (which is about adoption) & some adoption informational brochures too.  I gave her some baby T shirts & a baby blanket & said for  her to come back when she knows if she's going to have a boy or a girl.  She was happy to hear that.  She seemed in 'good spirits' with her pregnancy & that's good because emotions effect the baby, in tSee full size imagehe womb.  All three girls said thank you & good bye & off they went, into the cruel world.  I was thinking that her two friends, probably want to get pregnant to, so that all three are pregnant at the same time, for they are best friends.  Like I said earlier, where are the parents, etc.?  Doesn't anyone care?  We do, we're a start.........
 
Pastor Jane't had just arrived, for her teaching course, about the Bible.  I didn't get there until late & Martha had gone to get a pizza for our supper.  We all ate at the table & Jane't played some beautiful music to relax us.  I had just finished the cream of broccoli pizza when the doorbell rang & it was Jennifer, from the See full size imageCatholic Courier, for an interview that she called me about the day before.  She was doing an article about how some people got started in their ministries & what makes them keep on going after all these years later & through difficult times.  It's an easy couple of questions to answer for it's  'God'.   He chose me for this ministry & keeps me going forward.  I interviewed with her for two hours & fifteen minutes.  I got a little long winded talking about myself but I did give 'God the Glory' as I witnessed to her highlights of my 25 years in the pro life movement, on the streets & in the center.  She had to go, to pack her suitcase, for her & her husband were heading to Rome the next day to see the Pope & to take a journalism class.  I asked her if I could fit in her suitcase.  She laughed, maybe she thought I was kidding?  Have a safe & blessed trip Jennifer.  The article will be in the October's Catholic Courier. 
 
It was 8:15pm now & Martha & Jane't had gone home. John had left earlier to go to a meeting on East Ave. around 7pm & had just returned from the See full size imagemeeting.  He was now waiting for a ride back to my apartment to get his car to go  home to Bristol.  I wasn't ready so he did some work on the computer for me.  We left around 9:30pm tonight.  A long day but a blessed one.
 
The next day I came back to the center to paint the door, to the taxi company, gray.  It took a lot of time & then I went to the Church Rectory get the DVD's that we pass out to our clients, from Father, who burns them for me.  Thanks See full size imageFather, you're doing a great job in saving lives.  These are the Growth & Development & Maafa 21: Black Genocide in the 21st. Century DVD's, a very helpful teaching aid that we give away to save babies lives & to educate. 
 

I then received the Sacrament, of the Anointing of the Sick, from Fr. Leone, my Spiritual Director. He's also the Focus Pregnancy Help Center's Spiritual See full size imageDirector.  He prayed for me & I then received Holy Communion, which is the real Body, Blood, Soul & Divinity of Jesus Christ.  Check out: http://www.beginningcatholic.com/communion.html & http://catholicism.about.com/od/thesacraments/The_Sacraments-of_the_Catholic_Church_The_Seven_Sacraments.htm.

Thanks Fr. Leone, you & Fr.C. & Fr.P. are a blessing to me & to the work of the Focus Center.  God bless you all.

See full size imageI then quickly ate my chicken sandwich before I headed outside to the War Zone!  Just then the doorbell rang & it was Martha bringing a young girl into the center. She indicated that she was going to Planned Parenthood, thinking about having an abortion, so I asked her to fill out the Intake Sheet & then preceded to round up as much information that would be helpful to her as I could.  I even gave her a DVD on Growth & Development & Maafia:21.  She took the little rubberized baby at 12 weeks & I also showed her the model of the baby, in her womb, at 9 weeks. I could tell that she was amazed. I brought her into the office to see the pictures I have on the wall of an abortion, for educational purposes.  She looked shocked & that was good. 

  


 Wednesday, September 8, 2010 at the Focus Center

See full size imageWe celebrated the Mass, in our new beautiful Great Room, on the Birthday of the Blessed Mother & our 5th. year as a Pregnancy Center.  Our celebrant was Fr.Tony, who gave a fantastic homily, & our '40 Days for Life' coordinator Rick, gave his testimony of his coming back to the Catholic Church.  It was a powerful witness to the love of God & the Truth. There was much sharing & a great buffet too.  Thanks to all that came, all 27 of you, you are a blessing to us, at Focus.  Also many other people wanted to come but it didn't work out for them tonight but hopefully next month, when we have another Mass, in the Great Room.  The celebrant will be Fr.Brian Carpenter, who is the newest ordained priest, here in Rochester, NY.. 


Thursday, September 9, 2010 front of Planned Parenthood

See full size imageAfter Mass today I spoke to my police friend, Officer Mike, regarding the episode last Wednesday at the center with the out of control taxi driver.  I told him about the police responses that were inappropriate & he said that he will speak to them.  I said "thank you" for this officer is a true officer & I wish more officers would be like him.  When I arrived at the center Martha was just getting out of her leader car, for her car is in the shop.  Jerry came over to help set up on the sidewalk.  I was in & out of the center until Suzanne, our Thursday counselor, came.  Rose had come in now to the center & I gave her some instruction for the afternoon.  When I came back out Martha told me that a car came out of Planned Parenthood & the passenger was slumped in the front See full size imageseat & she was showing her wrist band, for she had an abortion this morning & was coming out now.  It was very hard for Martha to see & for me to hear.  A blue truck had dropped off two girls into the killing mill.  Is said to him as he was leaving, "what are you doing dropping off these two girls"?  He rolled up his window as he drove passed us, on the sidewalk.

A red van was turning around in the veterinary, who is across the street form See full size imagePlanned Parenthood & I thought that it was going to go up the street but it went right into Planned Parenthood's driveway.  I was shocked to see his whole family get out of the van & walk into Planned Parenthood, him & his wife & children.  I called out to him but he wouldn't listen.  My heart ached to see that.  Then three young girls were walking into Planned Parenthood & I called to them one of the girls seemed to want to come over to Martha & I but they all went into Planned Parenthood instead.  Again your heart aches at al of this.  Nasty people were driving by & See full size imagea kid on a bicycle rode passed Martha, for I was in the center when this happened, he said to her as he rode by "why don't you just go away".  She replied "why don't you ride your bicycle in the street rather than on the sidewalk"?  What a smart allelic!  I was quickly eating my turkey sandwich that Rose had made & after the last bite I saw that the three girls were coming out of Planned Parenthood & were on the sidewalk next to us.  One of the girls said "I heard what you were saying & I wanted to come over to see if you could help me"?  "Oh yes" Martha replied.  I said that there was a counselor in the center right now so come follow me I said.  They seemed to be some hesitancy but thank God they started to follow me to the center.  I took a drink of my ice tea before I started walking & I crunched down on something so I took it out of my mouth only to see that it was a bee.  Ick!!  I spit it out onto the sidewalk & teased the girls See full size imagesaying "I almost swallowed a bee".  I lead them into the center & introduced them to Suzanne, who now took over in helping the girls, for they are now in good hands.  I handed them all a Truth packet & a rubberized 12 week old baby & they said "thank you" & I then left them with Suzanne & I went back outside to be with Martha who was with Jerry who was praying on the brick side of Planned Parenthood. 

Martha & I saw a young woman with a suitcase on wheels coming down the See full size imagesidewalk, we always get ready when we see someone coming up the sidewalk, with the Truth packet in hand to pass out to them.  When this young woman came near us she immediately said to us "you both look familiar, where have I've  seen you before"?  We both said "was it here"?  She said "no, I never had no reason to go to Planned Parenthood, what church do you go to"?  I said "Our Lady of Victory, down the street".  Martha said "I attend St. Theodore's in Gates".  "No" she said "not at these churches, where do I know you both from"?   I replied that the only place I can think of was here on the sidewalk.  "Well maybe" she said back. "Oh", I replied.  She quickly answered back "oh no I've never had an abortion".  "I have 3 children & I'm just divorced".  I'm on my way to the Jennifer House, (which is a prison outreach program that works with men & woman & helps them to reenter the community following their release).  It's sponsored by Spititus Christi, which does good community work in helping people but there See full size imageTheology is way off.  They are excommunicated from the Catholic Church, but they refer themselves as Catholics.  This is on there web site "We are an inclusive Catholic Church where all are welcome".  No you are not!!  They are only kidding themselves.  The so called pastor Mary Ramerman, thinks that she's a priest.  No again!  It's only in her head.  Woman can't be priests because Jesus was a man & so were the Apostales.  In the Church women play many important roles but one of them is not as a priest.  Sorry Mary!  Please repent & all those who work & attend Spiritus Christi.  I enven have a friend that attends there & it breaks my heart. He did ask me for my prayers though.  They don't follow the Truth.  They are everything to everyone thus compromising the Truth to those that need it for their salvation & healing.  Enough of this. Well, our little lady, that stopped & talked with us, took a Rosary & our Truth packet & gave us a nice warm smile & said "good bye" & off she went down the street.  She said that she had taken the wrong bus & got off at the wrong bus stop but the good Lord had other plans for her today.  She was a gift to both Martha & I.  What a blessing to have meet her & we were touched by this encounter with her.  We wish her well & we will keep her in our hearts & prayers that she can get better soon & go back with her children.  She's a Catholic & I suggested for her to go to the Sacrament of See full size imageConfession & to attend Mass every Sunday & of course to say her Rosary.  Mother Mary will draw her closer to Jesus, her son, for hope & healing in her 'new life'.  Hope to see her again someday. 

I saw a car drive by & it was Sergeant Bob.  He saw Martha & I & did a U Turn See full size image& came over to us for a visit.  I said "Hi Sergeant Bob, how are you doing"?  He said that he had just retired from the police force after 37 years of service.  "It's about time, don't you think, he said"?  I agreed, would I argue with a Sergeant!!  He did say that he was still working part time for the Federal Marshals office.  I forgot to ask him about how Planned Parenthood harassed us with the inaccurate yellow buffer zone for about 2 weeks with the landscaper on our tail.  So far we're not having any problems with him.  But in the future, if he starts up again, I know who to call, I do have his number.  He asked me how I was doing & I told him about the pregnancy center's advancement.  He them looked at me sternly & said "I asked how YOU were doing"!.  Oh me, how am I doing, terrible I confessed.  "What's wrong", he said.  "Oh I have  Fibromyalgia http://www.fmaware.org/site/PageServer, besides other things going on, to many to mention".  He said "is this an Autoimmune condition?".  "I guess so", I replied  "What are you doing for it", he said?  I said "nothing, I don't know what to do for it, I can't take pain pills all my life, I'll ruin my liver, so I just offer my pain & discomfort up to the Lord to use it to save lives & souls, including my own, & He gives me the grace to endure it".  "I'll be fine" I said, I receive the Sacrament of the Sick every month, that's my medicine & try to go to daily Mass & receive the Holy Eucharist, that's my medicine.  Plus read the Bible & say the Rosary, that's my medicine too.  He's Catholic, so I know that he understood, what I was saying.  "Well it was good seeing you ladies & remember to be careful out here".  "Yes Sergeant Bob we will, bye See full size imagefor now & it was good seeing you too.  I remember once he told me that he was scared that a car would someday jump the curb & hit us, so far so good Sergeant Bob, thanks for caring.  We go way back, about 14 years back.  Glad that he retired & he will be able to spend more time with family & to relax.   

I went I get the sidewalk chalk to put down, on the sidewalk, the Pregnancy See full size imageHelp number which is: 800-395-Help, 24x7.  I finished on the side where Martha & I were standing, now I was going over to the other side of Planned Parenthood, to put down the same message there. We had a girl call that number & she received the right kind help that she needed. Yeah!!  Just as I was finished I saw Donna drive by.  I hollered over to her & she did a U Turn, the second of the day, & she stopped where I was standing.  She said that she was going to drop off Veronica over to the music school & she'll be right back.  She also said that she had hurt her back & was very uncomfortable. "I'm sorry to hear that, my dear".   I then said that Martha & I were heading into the center & we'll all See full size imagewatch 'Blood Money', a DVD about the abortion industry, together.  "Okay" she said, I'll be right back & I can stay about an hour."  "Great", I said, "I'll see you in a little while".  Off she goes.  I walked over to where Martha was & we brought all the things back into the center to put away.  I said to our volunteer, "put down what you're doing & come watch the DVD 'Blood Money' with us, when Donna comes in, for I want you to see it too".  When Donna arrived, with her 3 out of 6 children, we all went into the Rose Room, to watch the DVD.  Her 2 boys were in the Meeting Room playing & Donna was holding little wiggly, Hannah.  This 'Blood Money' was heart retching, to listen to, to say the least.  Just then, our sweet volunteer burst out in uncontrollable tears & told us her See full size imagestories.  When she was 12 years old she was rapped.  She didn't know that she was pregnant until she was 8 months along.  Her mother then drove her to a place on Lattimore, next to Strong Hospital, & made her have an abortion.  The mother paid lots of money for the abortion. When she woke up she asked about her baby, not really knowing what  had just happened. When she found out that she wasn't pregnant anymore she said that she hated her mother from that moment on.  When her mother, on her death bed, asked her to forgive her for what she did, she replied "no, I only hope that my baby, that you killed, will forgive you".  She was crying like a baby.  I got up & gave her a hug & a Kleenex.  My heart went out to her for the loss, of her baby, & for the betrayal, of her own mother.  She said that her own mother wanted to abort her but was talked out of it & that her grandmother raised her, for most of her life.  What loss, pain & rejection.  My heart went out to her, for I related.  Then she said that she had some children & then had her Fallopian tubes tied.  A couple of years later she thought that she could be pregnant so she went to Strong Hospital to get a pregnancy test.  It was positive.  The female doctor told her that she had an infection & that she needed to take 'this pill'.  She told her that she would when se got home. The doctor said "no, you need to take it now".  So she did & off she went home thinking that she had an infection & all will be well.  No so, not so.  The next day she started to bleed & all 'this stuff' came out of me, she said.  Then she new that she was pregnant & that the doctor had given her an abortion pill.  She was devastated to say the least & heart broken again.  She didn't believe in abortion & never wanted one.  See full size imageThis was the second time she was deceived & betrayed by a See full size imagehigher authority, first a mother & now a doctor.  How sad, my heart went out to her.  This sharing was hitting close to home for me too.  Not the same story but the betrayal of the higher authority, a mother, a nurse instructor & two doctors.  I spoke with her for awhile & then we continued to watch the intense DVD.  After it was over I realized how important it was, for it had triggered, our sweet volunteer & myself, from past traumas.  Martha & Donna were also effected by this video.  A must see for all pro lifers.  I thought of showing it at Focus, during the '40 Days for Life' campaign.  The DVD is short 2 hours, it goes quickly, but it's soooo important to watch!!  The more knowledge we receive the more that we can educate others. She asked to watch the very graphic video 'Hard Truth'.   WARNING: GRAPHIC PICTURES: http://www.abortiontv.com/Movies/viewliveabortions.htm & http://www.prolife.com/.  I asked her if she really wanted to see an abortion, I wouldn't even watch it.  She said "yes".  I went to get the DVD, for her to take home to watch it with her family, as requested by her.  I hope that I made the right decision, for I don't want to wound her any further, for she's been through so much already & she's such a sweet woman.  She's such a blessing to us at Focus.  Thank you Jesus!! 

 


Monday, September 13, 2010 infront of Planned Parenthood

How do I compute this one.  We have a great team who are on the front lines & in the Focus Center on Mondays evenings from 3-6pm.  This evening, I spoke with the counselor to see if everything went well she told me this story of what happened on Monday evening at Focus.  The sidewalk counselor rought a young woman into the center, who had just come out of Planned Parenthood.  Pat, the Monday evening counselor, greeted her at the door & brought her into the Rose Room for counseling & to fill out the Intake Sheet, so that we can better serve our clients needs.  The story was that this client See full size imagewas pregnant, she just found out at Planned Parenthood, & has 3 other children at home.  She isn't married & it doesn't seem likely that marriage, to the father of her children, will happen.  She has had one abortion in the past & said that she will never do that again, ever.  After her abortion she started to cry & the so called nurse at Planned Parenthood said "maybe this wasn't the right decision for you after all".  Now what then, the damage is already done??  Rachael Phelps just killed her precious baby & the so called nurse said "oh, I think you made a mistake prehaps".  What about before the fact dearie & why does Planned Parenthood kill children anyway??  Well the shocker was, after she was told today that she was pregnant, the so called nurse said to her "why don't you come back tomorrow to terminate".  The poor girl almost vomited on the floor, so out of the Killing Mill she goes, all alone, until she sees the sidewalk counselor who now changes her life.  Praise God!!  He lead her into the Focus Center & Pat, the counselor, gets the See full size imagewhole story.  She gives her some adoption information & calls Bethany Christian Services & the client talks to the Social Worker there for over a half an hour.  She then goes into the Material Aid Room & gets a whole lot of things for her children & the sidewalk counselor brings her home.  How can anyone NOT believe in God??  I was said that she told Pat that when she went for the abortion there was no one there in front of Planned Parenthood so in she went to do the awful deed & when she came out in the early afternoon there we were, on the front lines.  She said that she saw our graphic sign of the 10 week old aborted baby & she knew that was her baby, that she just paid the abortionist Rachael Phelps to murder, in cold blood.  See full size imageHer pain & grief & shame & sorrow was still evident as of today, I was told.  The client will be coming back on Wednesday to pick up some older children clothes, for her 11 year old son, that Pat will be bringing in. When I see her on Wednesday, I'll talk to her about some post abortion care, so she can receive forgiveness, help & healing, from God & her precious baby, that was killed that awful abortion day.  My heart is very sad that we can't get anyone to be out in front of Planned Parenthood on Tuesday & Thursday mornings.  I will say that Pat & Bill do pray, the Rosary, for an hour on Tuesday mornings, so it seemed that this woman came after they left, to have the abortion.  We should have pro lifers there, in front of Planned Parenthood, every day & all day long too.  What's wrong with this picture?  Why are good people so docile when it comes to abortion, which effects us all, in this country?  Abortion is the murdering of an innocent human being, that is totally dependent on the mother, in the womb, where it should be safe.  This cancer, of abortion, has hit home to all of us, either directly or indirectly.  When will this Evil end & when will people be more pro active, in the cause??

 


Tuesday, September 14, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
When I arrived at the center after Mass I started to bring things in from my car & to put some things away.  Sandy just came in & helped me bring the winter baby & children clothes, that I had washed at home, for the center.  Nice & fresh & clean.  I was complaining about the  taxi guys that had a meeting in the All Purpose Room & didn't put things away.  Just then I saw a young girl come walking down the hallway.  I said "are you hear to get some things in the Material Aid Room"?  "Yes", she said so I asked Sandy to go in the room to help her.  I said "you look familiar, I remember you came in with your 2 See full size imagesisters on Friday".  She said "yes, I thought that I was going to have a boy but just found out, through ultrasound, that she's a girl"  "Wow " I said "that's great".  Your baby is due in January so take what you need now & you can come back another time to & get more things for you baby.  I remembered that she told me on Friday that she had an abortion, in the past, but never would do that again.  I went into the office to get some post abortion brochures to give to her for help & healing.  I told her that I had put some information in her bag.  She thanked me & off she went & happy person.  Our post abortive girls are hurting & we want to be there to help them to heal & to get right with God, who they greatly offended, by having an abortion.  God is loving & merciful & quick to forgive. 
 
Rose just came in & I asked her to make a sandwich for Martha & I for our lunch, for I was about to faint.  I need to eat a better breakfast, so I can go See full size imagestrong in the afternoons, here on the front lines.  Just then Mary S. came into the center to get some signs to go out to the See full size imagesidewalk.  I said "come follow me into our new Great Room".  She was so impressed.  She said that she would be gone for the next 2 weeks for her & her husband of 25 years are going to California to celebrate.  We will miss you Mary, have a great time celebrating your 25th. Wedding Anniversary.  You both deserve a great time.  :)
 
See full size imageJust then Carole came in with a huge crucifix.  It was beautiful & heart aching.  I quickly went into our new Great Room & took 2 pictures that I had put up on the wall on Saturday & then put up the Crucifix.  We want to give God the Glory & Praise, for what He has done for us. Carole said that little Peyton is holding her own & will be going to visit her daughter in Ohio for her Baby Shower.  Great Carole that will be nice for your daughter & for the rest of the family. 
 
I was in & out of the center, all afternoon.  Five moms & I dad were helped in the Material Aid Room as Rose was putting out the winter clothes & putting away the summer clothes.  Very busy day, like always.  I saw a young man walking down the sidewalk with a baby in the stroller.  I called over to him & See full size imagetold him that we had 'free' baby & children clothes in the center.  He crossed the street with his baby & there he goes into the center.  Martha went in to assist him & when she came back out she said that he told her that he has had custody, of his daughter, from day 1.  When he came back out & as he passed us by, on the sidewalk, I looked right in his eyes to thank him for a great job that he's doing for his daughter & if he needed anything else, to come on back.  He smiled & said "thank you".  As he walked by us we saw that his shirt had a huge cross on the back of his shirt. He was so happy & proud of his bundle of joy. What an experience, I feel like crying. 
 
A van just drove into Planned Parenthood & when the van door opened out came a child, a boy around 5 or 6 years of age.  It just breaks my heart to see children there at Planned Parenthood, that the parent or parents bring their See full size imagechild or children, to such an evil place. The mother brought him into Planned Parenthood & about 15 minutes later they came back out.  As he was going into the van I hollered over to him saying "I'm sorry, sweet boy, that you are here".  He answered me back in such a sweet child like voice saying "that's okay".  I almost melted & cried too.  He was consoling me, that he was there.  Maybe he picked up on my worry for him.  My heart was touched.  He sounded like an angel from above.  Maybe, that was God's way to say that this situation was not to worry about, for the abortionist had left about 10 minutes earlier.  What an I to do Lord??  You have my heart & life & tears. 
 
A girl had walked by us & I asked her if she needed any baby or children clothes.  She said "no".  Then Martha said that we give out free pregnancy tests.  She turned around & said "okay I would like to have one please".  So Martha brought her into the center for a pregnancy test, which was negative & while she was there she went into the Material Aid Room to get some things for her 9 year old son. 
 
I was looking forward to seeing the carpet man today to pick out the carpet colors in both the hallway & the All Purpose Room.  When he arrived I called out landlord & he said that he was a few minutes away.  Martha & I looked at See full size imagethe carpet colors & we picked out 2 beautiful shades  for both rooms.  It will be done on Monday & it will look great Yeah!!!  Thank you Lord for I've been waiting for 5 long years to change the carpet in the center's hallway & the main room, which we do share with our friends, in the Taxi company.  It will look beautiful & it will be ready for the '40 Days for Life' 'Kick Off Rally', on Tuesday September 21st. at the Focus Center.  I just found out today that our landlord Bernie his wife runs a Day Care Center in their home.  What a shock to say the least.  He also rents out apartments.  Learn something new every day.. 
 
Bob came into the center with 100 handmade Rosaries, that were blessed.  See full size imageWe put a Rosary in all of our Truth packets & we try to hand them out to the people walking on the sidewalk too.  They were beautiful  He also wanted to make a donation, to the center, in Memory of a friend of ours Dr. Barb, whose mother who just died.  My heart was touched again today. 
 
A girl & guy came out of Planned Parenthood.  I was on the other side of the See full size imagestreet at that time so I offered them the Truth packet.  The girl wanted no part of it but the young man took it from me.  The cars driving by were vicious, or at least some of them.  They should keep their fingers to themselves.  Like Carole says "I hope that it drops off".  I hope that this is Christian.  I know what she means. 
 
We saw that a large group of young kids were coming down the street from the school up the street.  We were there to educate as they walked by.  Then See full size imagethe teachers came by saying to the students "just keep on walking".  Okay nice teacher, we are your friends, too. I feel that these kids will never forget what they saw today & maybe it will even save a life, in the future.  The mind always remembers.  
 
The abortionist was standing there, by her dark blue car, talking to another woman with short hair.  This made me sick.  I called over to her asking her to repent & that there will be justice someday for all the people that she's killed.  I also said that because she had an hysterectomy at 23 that she wants all women not to have children.  I went on & on, for it's so horrible to see someone that you know that kills children & acts like it's no big deal.  What's wrong with her?  Why is she killing children?  Earlier this afternoon a car See full size imagecame out of Planned Parenthood & the young girl, on the passenger side, was crying.  Her mother was driving the 'get away' car.  I hollered to the young girl & said "I hope someday you can forgive your mother for what she did to you here today".  This is the legacy of Rachael Phelps, who destroys life in the womb & life outside of the womb. 
 
I was in the center & Carole came in saying that she had to go & that See full size imagea woman was out on the sidewalk with Martha & she wants to join our efforts there.  I knew exactly who Carole was talking about.  Sheila called me about 4 weeks ago saying that when she can she'd like to join us on the front lines.  I went outside to meet her.  She's a very nice woman will be joining Martha & I on Wednesday afternoons.  Welcome Sheila..  
 
Martha & I were now in the center & getting ready for supper. I brought in a baked chicken & Cole slaw & a green salad & stuffed potato skins with bacon & cheese.  Yummy!  See full size image Martha, after supper, was going to her Parish to speak about the '40 Days for Life" campaign & we were having our last meeting tonight, at Focus, to discuss the '40 Days for Life' campaign.  The doorbell started to ring.  We had 6 people at the meeting.  All of them were wearing 'I just Voted' stickers on.  "Where is yours Mary" said Donna.  I said that I was very busy in the center so go into the office to see what a mess it is.  "No excuse, you need to go vote tonight".  Then here comes Anne, who says See full size imagethe same thing to me & then another person says the same thing too, I'm surrounded.  Well, after the meeting they all helped me in the office, to get some things done, so now I was 'free' to go vote.  I was glad that I did, for it is my duty,  & I was so happy that my candidates won the Primary!!!    I was given two 'I just Voted' stickers,  ya ya!  Thanks guys for I needed a kick in the butt & you were all there to give it to me & that's what friends are for.

 


Wednesday, September 15, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

 Martha & I arrived after Mass today.  I ran into Kathy after Mass & asked her to come to the center to see the new room.  She came to see the new Great Room & was impressed with the size & the decorations.  I'll miss Kathy & her See full size imagehusband Aaron, for they're moving to Buffalo, in October, to start a new life because Arron got a job ther.  They are such a nice couple & Arron & his friend Joe painted our general meeting room, a gorgeous green, about 4 years ago.  Thanks guys!  When I was speaking to Kathy, Martha came in & joined us, then a client came in to get some things in the Material Aid Room. I said good bye to Kathy & then went to assist our client in the clothing room.   After she went out of the center I said to Martha "please go to see if the abortionist is here today".  She went outside with the signs & the literature box & the mega phone to go into battle.  I asked her if it was okay with her I'd like to work in the office to catch up on some things & then I'll come right out to be with her on the front lines.  She agreed that was okay.  So I stayed in the center while Martha was outside, by herself, which we don't like to do.  I did a couple of things in the office to play 'catch up' & then went outside to be with Martha.  I looked in the parking lot & I didn't see the abortionist there, so I said "Martha, the abortionist isn't here"!  Just then the abortionist, Rachael Phelps drives out of the parking lot.  I hollered to her to stop killing little babies & to repent.  She just drove off acting like nothing she's doing is wrong.  Oh Lord help us!! 

 
A car with two women & 2 young children were driving out of the parking lot.  We called to them offering them free baby clothes.  The car pulled next to us & asked where we do we get the 'free' clothes.  I said "come follow me", which they did into the center.  As I brought them into the Material Aid Room & began speaking with them & one thing lead to another.  A few minutes later the one girl asked for a pregnancy test.  I said "why don't you follow me into the Rose Room, for the test" which she did.  I gave her instructions & then asked her questions for the Intake Sheet.  I found out that she was on See full size imageImplanon, here we go again.  This, like all contraceptives are, DANGEROUS & THEY ACT AS AN ABORTIFICANT.  Poor girl, I instructed her about this drug & gave her the brochure about it.  I also counseled her about abstinence, for she said that she new the Lord, or did she?  I finally told her that her pregnancy test was negative after she asked me what the results were, for I had looked at the results but failed to tell her, until she asked.  She was in a hurry & off she went with her Truth packet & some new information in her heart & mind.  The very best to you dear one. 
 
As I was about to return to the front lines the doorbell rang.  It was a mom, with one child & who has nothing & is due in November, with baby number two.  I told her that I was trying to reach her but I couldn't get through.  She said that she just had put some minutes on her cell phone.  I told her that we just got some more baby boy clothes & for her to shop around.  I said to the See full size imageyoung woman with her "can I help you".  She said that she was with her friend & that she needed diapers & wipes for her 2 year old twins, a boy & a girl.  I went into the office, where we have the supply of diapers, under the literature tables.  I found a couple of bags to give to the moms along with some baby wipes.  They were both very happy.  They picked out some nice things in the Material Aid Room for their children.  I was ready to be with Martha, on the front lines, when the doorbell rang again.  There at the door was  a young woman, & a cute little boy & an older man with long hair & a beard.  "May I help you" I asked.  "Yes, I need some clothes & diapers for my son".  "Come on in" I said & I lead them into the Material Aid Room for some shopping.  It turned out that she was a referral client.  She needed more assistance than we could give her but we had lots of referrals for her to call regarding 'Food Pantries' & free furniture, for her apartment, etc..  I said all you have to do is make some phone calls & here is a referral from the Focus Center, in case any organization needs one, then you'll have this to give to them to receive their assistance.  She & her father were very happy, to say the least.  I was happy to be able to help this nice mom & her son.  God bless this family. 
 
I went out to the front lines where Martha was by herself, saying her Rosary, God love her.  I discerned the situation & said to her "lets go inside now for the abortionist isn't here & there isn't many cars, thank God & it's a mess See full size imageinside the office & I'm hungry & ready to faint".  She said "okay" & we gathered everything on the sidewalk to take with us back to the center.  I stayed while Martha was putting thing away & out come a car, from the Planned Parenthood, parking lot.  I called over to her & offered her a Truth packet.  She said that she didn't believe in abortions & said that Planned Parenthood does.  She took the packet & smiled at me & said "thank you".  "No" I said "thank you".  As I was finished with this open minded woman of faith another car drove into the parking lot with a Rosary on her mirror.  When she got out of the car & lit into her about the hypocrisy of having a Rosary on her car mirror & going into Planned Parenthood.  When she drove out, about a few minutes later, for she went into the Administration Building entrance, she saw the graphic picture of Malachi & I said that they kill children here every day.  I saw that her face was effected, when she went face to face, with this aborted baby.  I felt that she had a heart & I pray that she'll never come back here again, through the grace of God. 
 
See full size imageI made a chicken sandwich , for Martha & I, & I heated up the last two potato skins, for our lunch.  We were about to sit down together to eat lunch when the doorbell rang.  Martha got up to answer the door, it was a pregnant young lady who was due with a baby girl in January.  She asked for some diapers so I went into the office to get her some newborn diapers & Martha stayed with her to assist her with some newborn clothes for her little one's arrival in December.   I went back into the gathering room & ate my lunch alone.  After this mom left Martha came into, the room, to eat her chicken sandwich lunch.  After lunch we went into the office to put diapers into a plastic bag of 12 diapers each, so that we can service our moms for a short time, until they can get the assistance they need for long term.   Just then Martha said "what time is it"?  I said that it was 4:15.  "Oh no" she said, I'm suppose to be at an InService meeting at 4:30 on Lake Ave..  As she rushed out of the center, I said to her "please be careful, okay Martha".   She turned around & said that she would.  "See you tomorrow", I hollered to her.  Wow, she just lost sight of the time, maybe I kept her to busy in the center. 
 
I went back to my messy desk & sorted out some papers & made some See full size imagephone calls, etc.  Just then the doorbell rang & it was Pat, our Monday afternoon counselor, dropping off some clothes for a client she saw & spent much time with on Monday.  I called the client & she was happy & said that she'll drop by on Thursday to get the clothes that Pat dropped off for her 11 year old son.  Thanks Pat, how thoughtful of you. 
 
Tucker came in at 4pm to witness outside in front of Planned Parenthood. He's been doing this for 12 years now every Wednesday, from 4-6pm.  He & I started the Focus Pregnancy Help Center in 2005 together.  He's faithful. 
 
The doorbell rang & it was Mike.  He answered my email requesting assistance in the Material Aid Room sorting out baby & children clothes & putting away the summer clothes & putting out the winter clothes.  He See full size imageanswered my call.  He gave me a hug & I showed him around.  He said that he'd like to put up some shelves in the office to better organize our room, free of charge.  Wow, what a surprise!  Thank you Lord of all your surprise, for there was another 2 surprises waiting for me in the next hour.  As we were working in the Material Aid Room putting the winter clothes in the baskets the doorbell rang.  I went to the door to greet a young woman asking for some baby clothes for her young son.  I said sure come on in & I lead her in to the clothing room.  I introduced her to Mike & gave her a bag to start shopping.  She was delighted.  She told me that a woman called out to her as she was walking her young son down the sidewalk & she called over to her that we had a stroller for her & Martha lead her into the center to receive the stroller. This incident touched her heart.  She came back to the center for more clothes for her son for the nice lady said that if I needed anything else just come on back.  I said that Martha had to go to an Inservice meeting & that she'd love to have seen you, so please come back another time.  She said that she would.  Martha would be so glad to see her again.  This was a touching experience, one of many, at the Focus Center.
 
See full size imageThe next surprise was that the carpet man called to say that instead of Monday to put down the carpet in the hallway & the meeting room how about this Friday?  "Sure, that would be great" I answered back.  This is a wonderful 2nd. surprise Lord! 
 
The next surprise was Tucker was leaving & when I was at the door saying "good bye" to him there was Dan coming down the parking lot heading right to the door of the Focus Center.  I said "I don't let strangers in, you know".  "Hi Dan", I'm so happy to see you, it's been about a month right"?  "Ha ha, did you forget I told you that I was working on the campaign for the party".  "Oh, I must have forgotten", I said, "sorry Dan, it's soooo good seeing you again"!  Are you here to work because if you are I have work for you to do.  "Okay See full size imagewhat is it"?  "I need you to put the diapers in the bags & label them the size that it is, okay".  "No problem Mary".  He was busy with the diapers & I was busy with the paper work when I looked up & there was my landlord.  "Hi Bernie, what brings you here tonight"?  "I was wondering if I could use these tables for the weekend"?  I said I would let you borrow them but they're not mine but you could use the tables that the literature is on".  "No, that's okay I'll rent some tables or just go See full size imageahead & buy some".  It's no problem, are you sure"?  "I'm sure", he said back.  I said that I was just thinking of calling him to give him next months rent early.  He said that he would appreciate it if I did.  So I wrote out a check for our first months rent of $1,800, this is now including our new Great Room that we got recently & got it ready for the '40 Days for Life" Rally this Tuesday from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.  He likes the room, it looks great, he said.  Thanks again Lord for this happened so quickly that I my head is still spinning.  After he left & then Dan left I stayed to do some more work until about 9pm & it was time for me to go home & to eat supper.  Busy & fruitful day :)
 
 

Thursday, September 16, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

I knew that today was going to be horrible & I was right!  Martha was taking her friend to the eye doctor for surgery, so it was just Bill, who will be 81 years old next week.  He was across the street & I was where I always stand See full size imagebuy the big bad bushes.  I think that someone gave them Miracle Grow.  I took just one sign & the literature box, for it was raining hard, ick!  Oh, I don't like the rain, to get all wet is icky.  I always bring a change of clothes with me now, smart right.  It's because I learned the hard way, I've been soaked, several times, & I had no clothes to change into, talk about real icky :(   So it was the Lord & I defending life today, just Him & me.  When I arrived, at the center, there was Rose & a client already waiting for me to open up the Material Aid Room.  Before I left to go outside I asked Rose if she could make me a sandwich & I gave her a couple of assignments, in the center. 

Off I go into battle & battle it was today, what else do I expect at an abortion mill.  I was now out on the sidewalk trying to call out to the girls, without the mega phone, because when it gets wet it doesn't work until it dries.  So I was using my wimpy female voice, the best I could.  Cars were coming in & out of Planned Parenthood & I called out to them offering them help at the Focus Center 2 doors down.  A young man was walking down the sidewalk with a See full size imageRosary around his neck.  I said to him "don't forget to pray the Rosary that you're wearing".  "This is my Lord's Cross", he said & then went into Planned Parenthood.  I was shocked but then I remembered him.  He gave me a hard time this past summer when I spoke to him he was quite belligerent, telling me that his mother works here at Planned Parenthood.  Now he seems to have a peace about him with no belligerence.  Maybe his mother will see a change in her son & get out of Planned Parenthood, for both of their sakes.  Hope so! 

Rose was good to bring me out the chicken sandwich & ice tea.  It seemed to See full size imagebe raining less & hopefully soon it will stop all together.  Yeah!  I thanked her & then I asked her if she could go inside, the center & bring me some more signs & the mega phone.  She said that she would.  She's terrific & such a blessing to the work of the Focus Center.  She works hours in the Material Aid Room  to sort out baby & children clothes & to help our moms select clothes, when they come in.  She also makes up our Truth packets & cleans the toys when they come in.  She is so good with people we love & appreciate her, so much. 

I was waiting to wolf down my sandwich so as not to miss anyone coming into this death mill.  It was time to take a bit of my sandwich , for I was growing faint but I knew when I did started eat my sandwich there would be someone to help.  Right again!!  I looked up & saw two young people, a boy & See full size imagea girl, on the sidewalk.  I started to speak to them with my mouth empty.  I showed them the pictures of the aborted children, that seemed to effect the young girl especially.  I asked then if they would like to come into the pregnancy center which was 2 doors down.  I was sure glad that Suzanne was now in the center.  The young girl said in a coy way, "we were just waking down the sidewalk" but then the guy was heading into the parking lot of the abortion mill.  I said to him to get out of the driveway, where do you think that you're going?  I new that she was pregnant because I showed her a rubberized baby at 12 weeks & she said quickly "is that what my baby looks like".  Oh yea, he or she does.  Through the grace of God it took me about 10 minutes to convince them to follow me into the Focus Center where Suzanne awaited to counsel them or anyone else I brought in to her.  I was so happy when they entered the 'hall of hope' at the center.  

After a little while a woman was walking into the vets, across the street with See full size imageher dog, hollered over to me saying "pro choice, pro choice, pro choice".  I hollered back to her "you mean pro death, don't you.  Oh little doggie your mom is going into the vets to have you aborted, sorry little doggie, I tried to stop her but she wouldn't listen, sorry".  She walked in & came out about an hour later & didn't say a word.  As she drove by I said for her to repent.  Off she went down the street, hopefully contemplating that life is precious.  She may think of her dog, as See full size imagebeing so special, but we know that people are more important, for we are created in the image & likeness of God.  Animals, are not, but they are a gift from God, to give us love.  For I know, I have a cat named Godfree.   
 

Now my trouble had just started.  A car drove into Planned Parenthood & as always I call out to the people in the car to tell them that we can help them & what Planned Parenthood is all about.  Two young girls came out of the car & said something to me but they were to far away tfor me to hear what the one girl was saying.  They both went into Planned Parenthood & were there for awhile.  When they came back out the one girl, who was the passenger, said something to me & again I was to far away to hear what she was saying.  I was now by myself for Bill had to go. The car was coming out of the parking lot & it stopped & the young girl, who was the passenger said to me, "why are you hear?  I'm a Christian so shut your blank, blank, mouth".  I said "no, you're not Christian maybe a pretend one but not a real one for a real Christian wouldn't speak that way".  Just then my cell phone rang & I said to her "just a minute I have to get this".  Believe it or not they waited until I got off the phone & then she continued to say "why don't you leave these girls alone you blank, blank".  I then said to her "your tongue is going to fall out, you need your mouth cleaned up".  Off they went into the sunset, only kidding but they finally did leave & went up the street towards E. Main St..  'The End', so I thought but I was wrong.  About a half hour later a car was coming very close to where I was standing on the sidewalk & I said "be careful, you're to close". Then I got all wet.  My sweet girl went to Wendy's to get a lemonade & See full size imagedidn't finish it so she thought that she would throw the rest of it out on my face, how nice of her.  The liquid hit my face & right eye, it felt sticky, it must have been lemonade, my favorite but only on a hot day.  I was by myself so I couldn't leave all the signs & literature box alone for someone to take or destroy it, so I couldn't leave.  It was about 10 minutes later just enough time for the two girls to go to the store to buy a bottle of water.  It again happened so fast, but this time she stuck her head out the car window to throw water at me from the bottle.  I was taking a call on my cell phone when the second hit came.  I called out to her saying "will you stop".  Maybe they thought that I was on the phone calling the police.  I wish I had more information but I didn't so I decided not to call the police.  These girls were probably 'post abortive', to say the least.  I wish that I could have helped them...... I called the center to ask if Suzanne could ring me put a bottle of water, not to throw at anyone, but to cleanse my right eye out.  She did & I then splashed it on my right eye, to rinse it out.  You should have seen the guy in the parking lot of the business right next door, the look on his face was priceless.  I wonder what he thought I was doing with the water.  He'll never know.  Thanks Suzanne for saving the day!!

I looked down the street & I saw an elderly man walking up the street with a large can in his hands, it looked like a paint can hut as he drew closer to me I See full size imagesaw that it up an open can that was empty.  I looked the other way briefly & when I turned back I saw that he was seated on the wooden ledge that surrounds Planned Parenthood's bushes. He mumbled a comment, about the graphic picture of the aborted baby, who was massacred by abortion, that was straight from Hell & for the first time ever, out on the front lines, I said for him to "shut up".  I had the crucifix & earlier I had said the Hail Mary prayer & the St. Michael the Archangel prayer, against the Evil One, now I was praying in tongues.  All of a sudden he is using a demonic voice & in a different See full size imagelanguage.  It was straight from the Exorcist movie.  I said "you have two seconds to leave before I call the police".  He immediately stood up & walked up the street to where ever.  This was another spittle attack against life, three times in less then 2 hours.  Thank you Lord Jesus for protecting me against the attacks from the Evil One.

Since I had Suzanne on the sidewalk & a few minutes later Elaine came to bring the chairs to the center I asked them both since it was around 4pm to help me carry the signs & literature box into the center, which they did. So God sent me 2 people to help me.  I was now in the center & Rose was helping another mother out in the Material Aid Room.  We served 6 moms on Tuesday & Wednesday & today, Thursday many more.  I was settling in when the doorbell rang.  I went to the door to see three young girls at the door.  I opened the door & asked if I cold help them.  The one girl said "I'd like a See full size imagepregnancy test, then the other girl said "I want a pregnancy test" & the other girl said "I need one too".  I invited them into the center & asked "how are you all related"?  The one girl said "we're all sisters". Something is wrong with this family dynamics.  I was glad that they came to the Focus Center where they will be safe & so will their children be too, if they are pregnant.  I brought them into the Rose Room & because there were three girls I asked them to fill out their own Intake Sheet.  I spoke with the girls & hem started to do the pregnancy tests.  The one sister was pregnant.  She was 15 years old & said that she's been dating her boyfriend for 5 years.  What!!  She's been dating him since she was 10 years old. Where was her parents??  She was open for life & so where her 2 sisters for they were excited in being Aunts & had already named the baby after them.  I spoke to the other two girls about abstinence.  The one girl said that she was going to now save herself for her husband.  The other sister hopefully will follow suit.  I said to them not to try to get pregnant because your sister is expecting just enjoy being Aunts.  They agreed. The one girl was hungry so I went & got each of them a snack & a bottle of water. They all took a Truth packet & I gave them the Growth & Development DVD & the 12 week of rubberized baby to take with them to witness to others.  I asked them to keep away from Planned Parenthood & they said that they were just over there today, probably just after I left to come into the center, & they told them See full size imagethat unless they were willing to terminate they wouldn't do a pregnancy test so they saw our sign on the sidewalk & came to Focus for assistance.  Which I'm glad that they did, thank God.  I asked what their parents would say about this news & the pregnant girl said that she will be all right with it & so will her boyfriend.  I said to her don't let anyone talk you into an abortion & she said that she wouldn't let anyone talk her into it.  This was good news.  I said for them to call me if they needed any assistance, for I'm only a phone call away.  I showed them the Material Aid Room & said for her to come back to get some nice things for her baby when she finds out if her baby is a girl or boy.  She said "thank you & I will".  I gave them Compass Care's phone number for an ultrasound & for STD testing which the other girls were inquiring about.  I hope that today their lives will change for the better & to make good choices for themselves, from now on.  A 'new life' was left alone to grow & be born, next year.  Yeah!! These girls were young & I hope & pray like all our girls that their parents will do better in showing good example & to teach their children better & how to respect their bodies & to be chaste & to enjoy their lives as teenagers & young people until they're married.
  
Great News at Focus!!!   Another precious baby has been born!  Little, or See full size imageshould  say our big baby Matthew weighed in at 8Lb. 11 oz. on September 14th., mother & child are doing well.  Mom has decided to breast feed.  For more information: http://www.breastfeeding.com/ & http://www.llli.org/nb.html.  Best way to feed your baby, if possible :)

 


Monday September 20, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

I arrives at the center at 9am to help paint the all purpose room a darker green.  It's alight green now & doesn't go with the new earthy toned rug that was just put in.  Frank was suppose to paint so I waited until 9:20 & then called Martha. Just then the doorbell rang & it was Frank & Jerry, I was so happy to see painter instead of one.  Well that changed real fast.  Frank took a look at the room & said that he couldn't paint today but tomorrow & Jerry wasn't to excited about painting alone.  Frank said that he would go home & gSee full size imageet the paint brushes & the drop clothes & the ladder so Jerry & I waited.  He really didn't want to do it so I argued with him until he said "yes".  Frank came back with all the paint stuff & left then Jerry & I argued a bit more & he told me to just go, so I did, I went into the new Great Room & took a 2 hour nap, among all the noise that woke me up about 10 times but I finally woke up refreshed to say the least.  I went into the other room & exclaimed what a great job Jerry did!  Even though it needed a second coat in some spots & he touched up the other wall even though it wasn't the same shade of green, but whose complaining.  I'll deal with all of that another day & time.  At least the room will be ready for the '40 Days for Life' Kick Off Rally tomorrow night, thank God.  Jerry left to go to church & I made a couple of phone calls first, before the noon Mass, one was to the carpet man Jason who knocked off $50 for our accountant's room, up the hall, because he got out all his furniture instead of the carpet men having to do it.  Yeah!  Then I called the landlord to ask him to come pick up the remnant rugs in the all purpose room & that I had his favorite drink for him as a thank you.  Enjoy See full size imageyour sweet Walter wine Bernie & thank you for the new rugs in the hallway & in the all purpose room.  Looking good.  He brought this guy with him that gave me the creeps.  He said some strange things & when we accidentally bumped into each other he made a comment like "oh we bumped into each other, oh wow".  Icky man...  He also said "are you planning to bring your bed in the new room"?  Duh, no I don't think so creepy guy.  Sexual comments make my skin crawl but I hold my own, not as a former victim, but as a survivor. 
 

After Mass I went to the second hand store to see if they had any pictures for our new wall.  They had nothing, boo hoo.  As I was going back to the center & decided that I must eat so the plan was to go to Wendy's then go to the See full size imagecenter to lots more work.  Well plans change quickly for as I was driving, not good, I got a call & it was a client saying that she was at the center right now.  I told her to wait & that I'd be there in 5 minutes.  When I arrived at the center I saw two girls waiting for me.  I let them in, one of the girls is our client, she brought in her friend for a pregnancy test.  As I was doing the test, she who is due in January, was freely shopping in our Material Aid Room, having a ball.  The pregnancy test & teaching was completed, then our newest client went into the Material Aid Room, to do some shopping for her 2 year daughter.  They both left very happy.  I asked our client to get me some brochures from Healthy Moms program, next to St. Mary's & she said that she would & she will bring them to me at the end of the week.  Thanks dear one.  Life is changing for her, praise God!!  Then after the two girls left the doorbell rang See full size imageagain & again & again.  I did 3 pregnancy tests & 10 people came & received clothing from the Material Aid Room, today.  First of all the center is closed on Mondays until 4pm & I didn't put out the sign, on the sidewalk, & we had all these wonderful people come & receive help & love & education here at Focus today.  God is Great!!  I finally ran out to get a hamburger at Wendy's for I was about to faint.  When I came back I prayed for help to get these 2 rooms ready for tomorrow.

My prayer was answered I received much help in getting everything done for tomorrow. Bill & Francis helped me out with the big things.  Thanks See full size imageguys!  Pat, our Monday evening counselor, Martha, who came later to help out, & myself had a Fund Raiser Meeting for about an hour & a half.  Very productive it was.  These ideas will help us to raise money for Focus so we can pay the rent & our other expenses.  Things are happening & God is blessing our ministry.  Both room plus the bathrooms look good for the Kick Off Rally...can't wait!!! 


Tuesday, September 21, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
& the '40 Days for Life' Kick Off Rally at the Focus Center
 
When Martha & I arrived at the center we were kept quite busy & didn't have a chance to get out on the front line until about 1:30pm, which broke my heart.  Being on the front lines is a matter of life & death, for the little ones.  It was frustrating, but we had several moms come in to receive baby & children clothes & diapers, which was important.  Sandy was there to help them for Rose didn't show up today, hope she is okay.  Donna called in sick, so she wasn't going to be there today on the front lines, & Mary S. is celebrating her 25th. Wedding Anniversary & is in California for 2 weeks.  So it was just Martha & I out on the front lines.  Jerry showed up much later, to pray.  Rick the '40 Days for Life' Coordinator came & around 1:10pm to start to set up for the rally at 5:30pm.  I was doing so many things that my head began to spin.  Well, Martha & I finally went out on the front lines.  I saw that the abortionist Rachael Phelps wasn't there but there could have been another abortionist there to take her place.  You just have to treat everyone like they were here for an abortion so as not to miss anyone, until you're told differently by the person.  Well that happened.  A car came out & stopped along side of us.  I popped my head near the car & began to witness what Planned Parenthood does in there.  They listened to both Martha & I.  I gave them a Truth packet & a DVD on Black Genocide,  The young girl & guy were all so nice & asked for a doctors name.  I went over to the literature box & got out our small list of pro life doctors to give to her.  She looked at it & said that 2 of the doctors would work.  Yeah!  They said "thank you" & then went into the vets parking lot to turn around.  We waved at them as they passed by us & they waved back to Martha & I.   They were open to the Truth, thank God, so now they have a 'New Beginning', through the grace of God.  It's the people that are closed minded that scare me.
 
I heard some noise down the street & saw that two guys were riding skate boards & hollering at Martha & I.  I hollered bSee full size imageack to them saying "do you want me to call the police"?  We've had trouble with guys on skate boards before.  They have spit on our signs & crashed into them & were nasty as they rode by us, so I was ready with my cell phone for anything.  They disappeared as they were crossing Gibbs St. pass our strip mall were we have our pregnancy center.  Bye boys just grow up & keep your nasty mouths closed.  No respect for 'life' which they enjoy.  Well I was wrong.  It was about 20 minutes later that one of the boys came passed Martha & I on his skate board mouthing off, right in front of us.   I wasn't going to mess around so I pretended to call the police right in front of him.  He quickly went down Wayland St. & disappeared, hopefully never for us to see him again, until he repents.  I love this scare method for it usually works.  Only 2 times in all my years it didn't work the abusers just stayed there until I could think up another way to get rid of them harassing us.  That's not bad, two out of a hundred. 
 
Now it was the girls turn.  It was a nasty female on a motorcycle stretching her wheels going into Planned See full size imageParenthood.  All I said to her when she puled into the parking lot & shut her noisy motor off was "your guilty, please come to the realization & get help, forgiveness & healing".  Into Planned Parenthood she goes.  She's there about less than 5 minutes & come out talking to the death escort Barry Swan.  I spoke to her again & she gunned her motor to drown me out, I mean the Truth.  As she passed by me I told her to "repent".  She didn't care to hear anything she was to busy making noise.   I hope that she makes it. 
 
A little while later Martha & I noticed that there was a tomato in the street near us.  Perhaps someone had thrown a tSee full size imageomato at us from the other side of the street when we were not looking & missed, for it wasn't there earlier.  Poor shot, thank God, now that would have been messy to clean up.  It was a hot day & both Martha & I were dressed for winter, so we were baking to say the least.  She later went home to take a shower & to put on lighter clothes because it was so very hot.  Mind you I'm not complaining for I'd rather be hot that cold.  Burr...    I did take off my sweater but I had a turtle neck underneath.  Maybe I should check the weather report before I go outside, next time. 
 
I was counseling the people in the cars that ride into Planned Parenthood with love & knowledge & I was by the fence calling out when all of a sudden I heard a loud voice from across the street say "Mary..., I know that you're a boy with a wig on".  See full size imageOh no my nemesis Jim.  My voice to him must appear deep though it's really not it's mostly high pitched.  I have long blonde hair am tall with green eyes & certainly look & act as a female.  Poor Jim, maybe he's thinking of some one else.  Then he said "Mary I'm going to call Fr. O'Malley to have him do an exorcist".  I called back to him saying "please get some new material, while trying to insult me, this is old stuff".  Just before this happened, my sweet friend Donna arrived, with her darling daughter Hannah who is 14 months old.  She didn't like what she heard him say to me so she decided to walk across the street & speak to him.  When she came back about 10 minutes later, all she said was, "Mary we'll have to pray for him".  I guess he was in the war & is confused to what we're all about in front of Planned Parenthood.  He said that he was a Christian. All I can say is that some one has failed him in his Church.  After Donna left I went across the street to see Jerry, who was on his knees praying, holding a crucifix, praying to end abortion.  Then I heard Jim say "Mary now what are you doing"?  I just stayed there & prayed.  I did say "God will take care of you".  He quivered at that statement.  All I mean is that God doesn't want you to persecute your brother or sister in the Lord & He loves those who He disciplines.  It wasn't a curse or anything like that.  We are all responsible with what we say & do & not do, including myself.  I have to forgive him, for that's what it is in being a Christian. 
 
A skuffy older man came walking up the street & he stopped to tell me that when he was 21 years old, his 17 year old girlfriend got pregnant, & she wanted an abortion.  He talked her out of it & his daughter is 37 years old now.  Thank God for him talking action in saving his daughter's life. This is great news!!   
 
I was standing on the sidewalk when I saw that a young woman had just come out of Planned Parenthood.  I hollered over to her offering her the Truth packet.  She walked over to me, with no expression on her face & I smiled at her & gave her the packet without saying a word, I asked her no questions, which was very unusual for me.  Nothing came out of my mouth. I later regretted that I had asked her no questions but I have to believe that the Holy Spirit was in charge & not me.  After she took the packet she walked back over to the other side of the sidewalk, then walked up the street probably to catch a bus.  I was just so happy that she took the packet.  Well, she has been in my life ever since.  More to come on tomorrow's Front Line Weekly.  I left the sidewalk to get ready for the Board Meeting & the Kick Off Rally, for the '40 Days for Life' in our new Great Room at Focus!! 

 At the Board Meeting we voted our newest member to the Board tonight.  Rob is our longest acting male sidewalk counselor, in front of Planned Parenthood. Rob & I have been there for almost 15 years now.

  
The people were coming in to the Focus Center for the Kick Off Rally for the '40 Days for Life' which will be in front of Planned Parenthood at 114 University Ave. in Rochester, NY.  For 40 days there will be people in front of the abortion facility praying to end abortion there & all over the world.  We had the walls painted & the new carpet put down & the room looks great.  What a blessing it has been for our center which is expanding.  Rick, the Rochester Coordinator, came in early to set up the tables  & chairs & the sound system for the 3 testimonies which were to follow the buffet meal & a blessing by Fr. Brian Carpenter, from Peace of Christ Church.  Pat, our grandmother & great grandmother of the 2 almost aborted babies, was first to give her testimony & what a testimony she gave.  Pat had brought the 2 precious babies with her & Fr. Brian & I were holding them & the Catholic Courier photo journalist took the pictures.  Check out: http://www.peaceofchristparish.org/focus.php &
The second testimony was from Doriena, who had been raped when she was a teenager, & her mother made her have an abortion.  She became post abortive & years later had 2 more abortions.  She deeply regrets having her 3 children killed by abortion & now is married with 5 living children.  I said hi to her for she remembers me from another time when I shared with her that I conceived twins from my rape back in 1971 & lost them by a normal miscarriage, which greatly affected me.  After the 2 powerful testimonies Rick showed a DVD of Abby Johnson's testimony, she was the Director of Planned Parenthood, who left when she was asked to assist at an abortion in her facility, at Bryan/College Station, Texas, 1 year ago.  Check out:  http://40daysforlife.com/blog/?p=1202 for more information in regards to her testimony.  We had a blessed time with friends & food & sharing.  What an evening at Focus!! 

 


Wednesday September 22, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
(As I look back on this day, for it is mostly a blank, for the only thing I was consecrating on was to save her life & her baby's life, through the grace of God.  She became such a challenge to me, over the next couple of weeks, which was a life changing experience for her & I). 
 
Martha, Carole & I were standing on the sidewalk, like we usually do, praying & counseling when a girl came walking up the street.  I recognized her pants for the day before.  They had the logo on it MCC on the leg of the pants.  When the girl came up closer I asked her if she was here yesterday & she said "yes".  Then Martha said to her "are you hear for an abortion"?  The reply from the woman was "yes".  "Oh no" we all said at once.  She said "I don't want it".  Martha talked to her mostly for I was still in shock, for she was the girl that I handed the truth packet to yesterday afternoon & didn't say anything to her or ask her any questions, before going into the center for the Board Meeting & the Rally. I wasn't in a hurry when she approached me yesterday I just saw that her face & thought that I was glad that she came over to me to accept the packet.  She then said that she had put the RU 486 inside her.  I asked if I could show her a picture of what her baby looks like at 7 weeks & to follow me into the pregnancy center, which she did.  I brought her into the Rose Room & talked to her asking if I could call the doctor & to take her to the doctor for him to remove the pills.  She said "no, I don't want it".  I thought to myself, please stop saying that.  I showed her the Growth & Development DVD & the rubberized 12 week old baby & other pictures too.  I gave her the doctors list & asked for her to call one of them to have the abortion pills taken out.  I then read to her the powerful poem 'My Life Depends on You'. Check Out:
http://il.youtube.com/watch?v=xHEnVupp17k&feature=related.  She started to cry.  I was hopeful then.  I spoke to her about the adoption program & she said that if she was going to have the baby then she would raise the baby but you still don't understand, she said to me, 'I don't want it".  My heart had dropped to my ankles.  As she left I asked her again to call the doctor & she said "maybe I will, I don't know yet".  I was a little hopeful for the first time.  As she was walking down the street I just hollered to her "we love you", "we love you", "we love you".   I cried & then walked slowly back to the front lines to be with Martha & Carole.  We discussed this situation.  I went to the computer, in the Focus Center's office, to email everyone so that they would pray for her & her precious, innocent baby.  They did.  The rest of the day was very difficult for I had no way to reach her.  I didn't ask for her to fill out an Intake Sheet because & I didn't want her to get up & leave.  She, if she needed me to reach me anytime, that she knew.  So it was up to her to contact me or not.  Talk about suffering, for the Lord.  If the Lord needed this kind of suffering then so be it to save the lives of both mother & child. 
 
The rest of this day was very difficult.  We did help other mothers who were open to life, by counseling them in the center, & we gave away many baby & children clothes in the Material Aid Room too.  Two moms came in with some of their children & the one mom was due soon with a baby girl.  Between the 2 moms they had 12 children between them.  Needless to say that they took a lot of things emptying 3 baskets of clothes.  Martha helped them in the room & told the kids to pick up the toys, that they had put on the floor before leaving, which they did.  They took at least 3 full bags of clothes, which is fine, for their families.  We are here to help.
 
The three Elim Institute Students came today & so did their director Helen came to meet me & to talk to me.  I kept the girls busy by dividing the diapers packages, by putting  half of them into a plastic bag, for our moms.  This way we could stretch our diaper supply so we can always have enough for all our moms who come in for them.  We are working on a Grant & also for Wegmans, to help the center out, with diapers, baby wipes & formula.  So much to do & hardly no time to do it all.  We ran out of plastic bags & Helen went out to purchase more for us.  Sandy, who helps us out on Tuesdays in the center, had just come in for a visit & she went with her to the Dollar General on Main St., she was glad of that for she doesn't live in Rochester but she said that she had a good sense of direction.  Better you than me, that's for sure.  They came back about 20 minutes later with 8 cartons of plastic bags.  Thanks so very much Helen.  The girls kept on going, going & going some more.  No one came in to the Material Aid Room for clothes until after they left.  Maybe next week girls, for the experience.  They are so kind & helpful & we are blessed to have them with us.
 
After the girls left at 6:30 pm Martha & I ate, hardly to say the least, for this pregnant girl, who had the RU 486 pills in her, that I had asked her name & she told me but I was to stressed out to remember it. (I asked her again when I saw her what her name was & I'll call her Ms. C. for privacy sake).  She was on my mind, that's for sure.  Pray, pray & pray some more I told everyone.  As a sacrifice for the Lord, I gave up my shot of Brandy, before bedtime for her & her baby, who is in danger of being killed by these deadly pills. Please check out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcgeR3hSM5Q
  

 
Thursday September 23,2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
We were on the sidewalk witnessing when all of a sudden I saw the young woman, that had taken the RU 486 pills, was walking down the street.  I recognized her immediately & she approached us.  All this happened so fast my head was spinning.  She said to me that Planned Parenthood won't give her anesthesia for the abortion so she wanted the pills to be taken out.  Oh my God it's happening!!  I quickly brought her to the center where Suzanne, our Thursday counselor was, & asked her to call the doctor to tell him that we were on our way.  Our regular doctor was out of town though so we called our other referral doctor.  He said to bring her right over.  I asked Martha to come with me for my legs were like jelly.  She told the other people, that were on the sidewalk praying, that she was leaving & for them to take over & off we went to the doctors office who is off of Genesee St..  The traffic was horrible, poor Martha was stopping at every light it seemed & there was road work ahead of us.  At one point the young lady said that she wanted to go home until Martha told her that women can die from these pills.  She said "how".  I quickly told her that they bleed to death.  She changed her mind about going home & we were at the doctors office about 10 minutes later.  We all got out of the car & went into the office where they took her to the back room to wait for the doctor, who was there ready to 'save a life'.  Martha & I waited in the waiting room until I couldn't stand the stress any longer & decided to go for a walk down Warwick Ave. which is right next to the doctors office.  I wanted to see the house where I lived when I was 6 years old when I was in second grade at St. Augustine's Catholic Church, which is now closed.  I made my First Holy Communion at that church.  I walked gingerly down the street looking at every house to find the one that I lived in.  I saw an elderly Black woman sweeping her driveway & decided to stop to talk to her.  This encounter was such a joy to my heart.  A wise & wonderful woman she was.  I told her that I once lived on this street about 54 years ago.  She said that she didn't live there then even though she has been there for many years.  She said that she lost her husband about 7 years ago & once worked at Strong in the Labor Room helping to deliver babies.  I asked if she assisted with abortions & she said "no baby, I wouldn't have done that".  Don't you love her.  Her next door neighbor came out & joined us.  I spoke with her for a few minutes & asked her to take care of Gwen, that was her name, & she said that she does.  I smiled & was happy to hear this.  I said "good bye & God bless" & continued to walk down the street to find the house.  I did.  I just stood there looking up at the window that was once my bedroom.  It was a duplex & we lived upstairs.  I just keep on looking & the people who were sitting on their porch next door started to look at me.  I said to them that I used to live in this house when I was 6 years old & I asked them some questions & they answered me.  I was afraid to leave Martha in the doctors office by herself for very long so I looked at the neighbors & said "what happened in this house shouldn't have happened to any child", for I was molested, by my father, in that house.  I walked back to the doctors to be with Martha.
 
We waited for the procedure of the pills to be taken out for about 45 minutes & we were talking to the patients that were waiting for the doctor not knowing what was going on, for he took our girl right away.  He came out of the examining room & I spoke with him & he said to pray for her & her baby.  I said that was a given & thanked him for taking her right away.  He said "no problem" & he walked back into the examining room.  She came out about 10 minutes later.  I asked her how she was doing & she said that she felt better once the pills were removed.  I was glad to hear his.  I thanked the office people for their cooperation in this urgent matter & said good bye & we all left.  When we got into the car our young lady said "I need a cigarette".  You got to be kidding, I thought, not another way to wreck this baby.  She was so stressed out that Martha & I thought, that this once, it might be better to let her have one, so I bought a pack of cigarette's & gave her just 1.  I went into a corner store on W. Main St. & asked for a pack of Newports & this young person appeared.  I asked him how old he was & he said 15.  I said that I didn't think that 15 year olds were to suppose to sell cigarette's.  He said that it was okay & if it wasn't he'd still do it.  That's another problem for another day.  (Days later I spoke to my police friend & he said that it was illegal & it can reported it to the Dept.of Tobacco Firearms and Alcohol)   She smoked it in the car with the window down.  As we were driving down Hudson Ave. the street where they shoot people all the time she asked for Martha to stop to get chicken wings.  Are you kidding I thought to myself.  Martha said "yes just tell me where to stop".  Well she was a help!!  The fun never stops!  We stopped at a Chinese Take Out that had chicken wings of course.  Her & I got out of the car while Martha was waiting in the car.  She put in an order & so did I for at this time Martha & I were hungry too.  While she was waiting for her order to come up a little girl around 7 years old waved at her.  She made a comment saying "see the little girl she just waved at me & I don't even know her".  The Lord was showing her the love of a child, to soften her heart for her child growing inside of her.  We then took her home with the understanding for her to call us if she needed anything & to call the doctor, in a couple of days, to schedule an ultrasound & exam.  She said that she would do it.  Martha & I drove back to the center to eat our Chinese chicken wings & they were good.  What a day as we praised God for all that He did through us, to save the life of His children, both hers & her baby's.  We told everyone, who were still praying, in front of Planned Parenthood, to pray some more for this situation & I sent out a prayer request to my email list also.  
 

 
 
Friday, September 24, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
I received a call from our new client Ms. C. & she wants to get out of her abusive house with her parents.  I then called a person that I met about 4 weeks ago after the noon Mass at Our Lady of Victory Church.  She asked what I do & I said that I am the director of a pregnancy center.  She said that she has taken in pregnant girls in her home.  I was so happy to hear this & I took down her name & phone number, so when our new mom called saying that she needed to find a place to live temporally I though of her.  I called her & she said for me to come to look at the room this evening at 7pm.  I called Ms. C & set up a time to pick her up to take her to see the room.  I picked her & her girlfriend & Ms.C around 6:30pm & drove them over to see the house off of St. Paul Blvd..  When we arrived we were greeted by Beverly & she showed us the room upstairs.  The room was very small but durable to the situation.  Then she said that she had a male tenant down the short hall.  She assured us that there would be no privacy issue but I felt uncomfortable with this surprise.  I remembered that she said that there was another room downstairs so I asked to see this room.  The room was off of the kitchen & had a powder room next to it.  It was by the back door which a porch, which was nice.  Beverly had no real rules to live in her home.  No curfew & your own key, just clean up after yourself which was a given.  This seemed like a wonderful place for our Ms. C to move into to get away from the chaos where she is now for her sake & that of her baby.  I & she & her friend were very happy.  Ms. C told Beverly that she will take it & asked when she could move in.  Beverly said how about Sunday at 2pm, we all agreed.  We thanked Beverly & left.  The girls were hungry so I stopped at Price Rite in a very bad neighbor because that's were is was, at least they had a policeman there walking around.  Oh boy!!
 

 
Sunday, September 27, 2010
 
Ms. C. made arrangements to move into the house that we went to on Friday.  She was suppose to move in at 2pm but changed the time to 9pm.  I called Martha so that she could go with me.  We made arrangements to meet at the center around 8:30pm, Martha is not a night person so this was very nice of her.  When she drove into the parking lot I noticed that her front right head light was out.  We debated what to do but figured that if she drives carefully we will be all right, until she can get it fixed the next day.  We took her car because it's bigger & holds more because Ms. C will be bringing all what she owns with her to the new place from her old home, otherwise we would have taken my smaller car.  We then picked up Ms. C with all her heavy bags & suitcases & we were off to her new beginning in her life once she decided to 'chose life' & had the RU 486 abortion pills taken out of her.  Martha & I were happy for her.  Well things can change real fast in life so always be ready but always trust in God for He is in control & loves us & His ways are not are ways for He is Wisdom & Love & Truth.  We got to the house off of St. Paul Blvd. & Beverly wasn't there like she was suppose to be.  Her male tenant answered the door puzzled when we said that we were here to have Ms. C move in.  He said that he new nothing of that arrangement for all he knew was that another man was gSee full size imageoing to stay in the empty room upstairs were he had a room & the room downstairs was going to be Beverly's pregnant niece's room.  He called Beverly on the phone to make sure about the arrangements & he was right.  How could she not have called us to tell us that the plans have changed??  Ms. C was very upset to say the least & called one of the shelters & she couldn't get in because of a sanction that was against her plus they had no room available either.  Oh Lord what are we to do at 9pm on a Sunday.  She said to Martha who was driving See full size imageto take her to the park & I said "no you're not going to the park to sleep".  She said "don't tell me what to do" & got out of the car & ran like a gazelle down the street.  I hollered for her to stop for I can't run do to health issues but I did see from afar that she turned left at the corner, so I went back into the car to tell Martha so that we could pick her up.   Martha was backing out of the driveway & almost hit the tree behind her, she tried several times to straightened out until she told me to put my head down, which I did then she got out of the driveway safely.  She drove down the street & I told her to make a left & then we spotted our girl & stopped the car & asked her to come back into the car so we can try to make arrangements for tonight.  After talking about what just had happened the decision was made that Ms. C would spend the night at Martha's apartment.  We were trying to settle down because we were all upset with what had happened at Beverly's house. 
 
Next stop was the center.  Martha had to bring me back to get my car.  She made a turn down Hudson Ave. with police behind See full size imageher.  The siren & lights were shinning, just like the movies, but this was real.  Martha stopped instead of having a car chase on Hudson Ave. one of the worst parts of town even where the police get shot.  We were surrounded & the flashlights were now shinning in the car looking for whatever, which we don't do.  Martha rolled down the window, to a woman police officer which meant business, which I can't blame her in that neighborhood but if you look at Martha all you see is sweetness, until she told me to shut up because I was laughing iSee full size imagen the back seat.  It was a nervous laugh because I just couldn't imagine what could happen next.  She later said that she was sorry & I apologized to her for stressing her out more & being irritating, which I sometimes can be :( 
I rolled down the car window & said to the male police officer with the flashlight if he knew Officer Mike P?  I said this because I felt like a criminal, at this point, & I wanted the officers to know that we know one of their own but not everyone knows everyone, so it didn't help.  Sorry Officer Mike.  The officer asked Martha to show her license & registration & insurance card which she did & then asked her if she new why she was being stopped.  Martha told her it was because of her front headlight which was out & that she just found out about tonight & couldn't do anything about it until tomorrow.  The officer went back to her car to check out Martha & then came back with a ticket & told her that if she gets her car fixed tomorrow that she could send the proof in to get the ticket taken away.  Sounded good to Martha who was about to scream, with all that had taken place in such a short period of time late at night, & the night wasn't over with yet.  After the police had left to fight crime on the streets of Rochester, which is very dangerous & our prayers are with them, you could hear a pin drop in the car.  I don't remember if we talked at all but I think that we did.  We got to the center safe & sound & I got out & thanked Martha for all that she did this evening & to tell Ms. C that everything will work out just be patient & we are hear for her at all times & I said good bye & left.  I went into the center to do some work then went home around 12 midnight.  Tomorrow was another day.
 


 Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

I entered the center for the main door was ajar, which it shouldn't be because anyone can walk right in & maybe do harm.  In this case it was a young girl who in the hallway & I asked what I could do for her.  She said that she was looking for the Realtor up the hall to confront him because of her apartment situation.  He wasn't there so I asked if she had any children & she said that she had two but her ex husband & mother are taking care of them because she was in jail.  She sSee full size imageaid that she was in jail for a fight nothing more.  "Okay" I said.  Then I noticed that her blouse was about to fall from her shoulders & she didn't have a bra on so I brought her into the Material Aid Room to find something that would cover her up.  She found a pullover & a light jacket to go over it.  I was glad that now she wouldn't accidentally expose herself to the public by shear innocence.  She seemed to be a nice girl that just had some bad things happen to her & she needs to find someone that cares.  She also took some nice things for her 2 children.  I hope that she can work out the problem with the Realtor.  Just after she left Martha came in to get the signs & literature box to take with her to the front lines.  I joined her & then Carole came, a short time later.  So it was us three until Tucker, Robert & Linda came later.  Before the other three people came I was using the mega phone in the parking lot, at this time there wasn't anyone coming or going to their car I was just talking on the mega phone giving out information about the evils of Planned Parenthood.

Just then a woman, who was parked right next to where the abortionist always parks, got out of her car & started ranting & raving.  I just kept on giving her the facts about abortion & See full size imagewhat Planned Parenthood does in there to innocent babies & their mothers, especially the African American culture.  Some might disagree but I really didn't want to hear what she was saying I wanted her to hear the facts & the Truth, to educate herself.  Lots of luck.  She got back into her car after about 3 long minutes of verbal sparing between the two of us.  She moved her car right to where we stand by the bushes.  "Oh No"  Or maybe I should say "bring it on".  She parked & got out of the car & said to me who was standing by the fence "do you know who I am"?  "No" I said & she began to rant & rave on & on & on.  At the end she never told me who she was.  Some of the ranting was about showing the graphic signs to children.  Here we go again just like yesterday when the girl with the tattoos & gross ear lobe stretching earrings said the same thing.  We are not out here to traumatize the children but to save the children from being murdered by Rachael Phelps & all others at Planned Parenthood through chemical & surgical abortions.  What these pictures does is to convict the adults who blame it on the children.  It's called transference.  Tucker when he came tried to talk to her, so did Carole & Linda, but the lady just kept on going like the, generalized bunny.  The neighbor Sue Bovay came out to look to see what was going on, poor lady.  I went across the street with a graphic sign to stand next to Robert who was holding the graphic sign Malachi so when she came out she had to look at these pictures to see the horror of abortion.  The 3 year old in the car can't process what is going on & is probably looking down or out the side window.  This is between us adults that can't face the Truth about abortion & what Planned Parenthood does in there.  Stop compromising & betraying your race.  I'm not trying to be mean but I try to make people realize what is really going on at Planned Parenthood. Maybe it's to hard for anyone to believe.  I know it's hard for me.

One woman hollered out her window "Planned Parenthood saved my life".  I said "Planned Parenthood kills children & God saved your life".  God turns evil & makes it for good.  He's not See full size imagegoing to punish someone for the evils of Planned Parenthood.  She never told me the whole story she just drove away.  Enough said.  Maybe they caught in time an Etopic pregnancy or caught some type of breast or cervical cancer?  My question to Planned Parenthood is why can't you help woman by NOT killing their children or filling them up with birth control's steroids that does hurt them????  It's MONEY that what it is & an agenda of Population Control & Black Genocide.   Not reporting statuary rape, just gives them more power against the victim, so if she's pregnant they can do an abortion on her.  More $$$.  They are EVIL & that's that.  I rest my case. 

Two girls were walking up the street & Carole & I stopped them to talk to them.  They were effected by the pictures of aborted babies.  The girls who said that they were sisters didn't believe in abortion put the one sister said that she was going into Planned Parenthood for Birth Control.  Carole & I told then about what it really does to the baby that can be conceived & to their bodies too.  They took a Truth packet but walked right into Planned Parenthood.  They came out about less then 10 minutes later & I asked the one girl if she got the Birth Control.  She said "no".  Thank God & I know that He used her sister to help change her mind.  I only hope & pray that she stays strong & also her younger sister too.  One girl & life at a time.

The Material Aid Room was a buzzing with so many moms who were blessed in the room today.  Martha was doing a pregnancy test & while she was in the Rose Room oSee full size imageverseeing the test, her hand that she fell on in the bathroom earlier this morning, started to stiffen up & become very painful.  After the client had left she went to the freezer to get an ice pack & a couple of Advils, for the pain.

When Tucker had come to peacefully protest he told us that his father had died last night at the hospital.  He was 91 & was the father of 10 children & a good husband & father to his cSee full size imagehildren.  May he rear in peace.  I gave my condolence to Tucker & his family during this very difficult time, even though they had expected it for awhile,  Death is still unexpected, when it arrives never the less, it is a heartache, for those who are left behind.  We still need to grieve our loss no matter how old the person is.  Crying is okay & highly recommended in the grieving process.  

Martha &  I were about to eat, it was around 5:15pm, for she had to go to her family's house for a birthday party at 6pm, when the doorbell rang.  Rose said a girl & a guy were at the See full size imagedoor & she was asking for a pregnancy test.  I looked at Martha & asked her if she would do it. I knew that she would the best choice for right now.  She took a bite of her sausage sandwich, for she was hungry, & off she went into the Rose Room to assist our new client. I was half dead but I didn't let on, so I felt she was better than I would be, at this time, even though she probably didn't think so.  I felt badly for her hand was hurting her.  We do take turns, as much as possible, giving the pregnancy tests, but not always.  When she came out of the Rose Room, after the client & her boyfriend hSee full size imagead left, she came right into the kitchenette to finish off her sausage sandwich & homemade home fries, that I had made & brought in for our supper. She wasn't mad at me, Martha has a good heart.  I have to make decisions & I try to make the right ones, through the power of the Holy Spirit, everyday here at the Focus Center.  I pray for guidence to do the right thing at all times & whe I fail I ask for forgiveness & help to do better. "Pride before the storm'.  When Martha left to go to her party, I worked half dead, until about 9pm.  At this time, most of us pro lifers are suffering with something or another.  Most of us are in some kind of pain or discomfort.  This is good.  It means that the Devil is threatened by what God is doing through us, & we are under attack from thSee full size imagee Enemy, who has no power over us, for we are covered in the Precious Blood of Jesus & in the Mantel of the Blessed Mother, for protection.  Earlier this afternoon Linda, who was out on the front lines, was reading the Exorcism Prayer, against the Evil One.  We also pray the Rosary & say the Divine Mercy prayer, out on the front lines, to come against the power of the Enemy, who lies & tries to destroy us pro lifers & all people. 

Wounded soldiers for Christ,who will restore our souls & bodies,to keep on fighting the good fight, in saving lives for Him.   


Thursday, September 30, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

A car drove in with a young girl & guy.  I called to them & pleaded with them not to have their baby killed.  They didn't lSee full size imageisten & went right in.  The guy came out & sat in the car the whole time.  She came out about two hours later & when they drove out she gave me the 'bird'.  How very sad for her & for him.  Their hell has now begun.  Why didn't they listen to the Truth spoken, the words of help for them.  Now they are to suffer for taking an innocent life that was just created by God. 

I looked down the street & I saw Carole walking towards me.  Yeah!!  God heard my plea.  For she'll be with me on the front lines today.  She brought Cleveland, our street person, who we See full size imagehave adopted, a new jacket & she had bought him new shoes, socks, pants & a shirt yesterday.  He put on his new jacket & he was so happy.  Carole's going to get him long underwear next.  He's a new man.  She also gave him some $$ & when he came back, later on, he smelled like beer.  I guess he wanted to celebrate his new clothes.  A leopard doesn't usually change his spots.  We love & accept Cleveland just where he is.  Martha was in the center calling our clients that 'chose life' to see how they were doing & if they needed anything. She had her hand in See full size imagea bandage & she couldn't get it wet so she stayed in the center today. She made me a sandwich, for I was faint like, & she brought it outside where I was. She wrapped her hand in a plastic bag.  Thanks Martha for the nourishment.  Rose came later & helped out, in the center.  She works so hard 3 days a week & we are blessed in having her.  She likes chocolate so I will get her some as a 'thank you' for all the things that she does, at the Focus Center.  We couldn't do without her.

Robert, a new '40 Days for Life' recruit, came to be a witness on the front lines this afternoon.  He holds a graphic sign See full size imageMalachi, right across the street, so when people leave Planned Parenthood they will see him.  Someone that's not afraid to show the Truth about what is going on at Planned Parenthood.  It is refreshing, to say the least.  Welcome Robert.  He looks like Indiana Jones. 

It was 4pm & Carole had to leave & Martha wanted me in the center so we could eat & get ready to go see our little Birthday See full size imageboy, Khy-Meir, who is 1 years old today.  He was almost aborted last year by the RU486 abortion pill.  Pat, the grand mother, had pulled into the parking lot of Planned Parenthood & came out of her car & walked over to me, on the sidewalk, holding a graphic sign.  She walked over to me saying "I don't want my granddaughter to do that".  I replied "I don't want her either, come follow me".  I lead her into the Focus Center to be counseled by Suzanne & Maria.  Maria took her to our doctor & he took out the abortion pills & saved the life of little Khy-Meir, who just had about an half an hour to live.  Praise God!!  We have been blessed to be apart of this family ever since. 

Just before we left, the doorbell rang, & it was one of our mothers that 'chose life' out on the front lines.  She was walking into Planned Parenthood, with her friend, who is now our client, & she changed her mind after receiving a Truth packet & seeing the graphic sign Malachi.  Her baby is due See full size imageOctober 10th..  Yeah!  Her & her mother came into the center to receive some nice things that we just received from the 'Baby Shower' at the Church of the Assumption.  What great gifts from these fine people, all brand new.  After they left the doorbell rang again.  It was a girl & a guy wanting a pregnancy test.  Martha & I were just about to sit down to have our supper.  I asked Martha if she could do the pregnancy test.  She took a bite of her sausage sandwich & went into the Rose Room to assist these fine people.  She later said that the girl wanted to go into Planned Parenthood, to get the Morning After Pill, but they saw our sign & they came here instead to get the help that they deserved.  The boyfriend heard some bad things about Planned Parenthood & he didn't want her to go there.  Oh really!!  Hopefully the word is getting out.  My goal is to ruin the reputation of Planned Parenthood by telling the people the Truth about it. That should do it. 


 

 Sunday, October 3, 2010 at the Focus Center "Respect Life' Sunday & "Life Chain" Sunday

I got an early call from Christine, our pregnant girl, who 'chose life' a week ago by having Martha & I take her to the doctors to get the RU486 abortion pills out of her & she needed a ride to the shelter, from her mothers house.  She said that she will be waiting on the front steps.  I quickly got up & dressed but before I left I got a call from Martha saying that her car broke down on the rode yesterday & she has no car.  Plans quickly changed.  I had to much in my car to hold Martha, Christine & her bags so I needed first to go to the center to drop off the signs for the 'Life Chain' & the donuts & cider & other things, to make room for everybody, in the car.  I called Christine to tell her to hold on that I would get there to pick her up as quickly See full size imageas I could.  I'm driving on the expressway then my cell phone goes off.  I had to get it out of my pocket & to my ear answering it with much excitement.  I always think that it is an emergency & I must learn to let it ring & it can go to voice mail & I will get the message when I'm stopped.  You can't kill someone to save someone!!  You can't use the cell phone while driving.  If it's for a pregnancy test then I will get the message & will call the girl back but I don't want to kill anyone on the rode when I'm going to do something good.  It was someone who wants to donate children's clothes to the center.  I told him my situation & quickly got off the phone.  I was now in the city to go straight to the center, so I thought.  Oh no!!  There were police blocks on every corner for a Breast Cancer 'Walk for Hope'.  I found the next entrance to the expressway & went 15 minutes out of my way to pick up Christine.  I finally got to her house & got her in the car & went to the center the back way.  We emptied the car & then went to pick up Martha at her apartment in Gates.  Christine got some more of her clothes that she left at Martha's a week ago, when she stayed there, after leaving her mothers' house.  We were all hungry & Ms. C needed some minutes for her phone, that we will provide for her, during this very difficult time, so we headed to the store for the minutes for her cell phone & new coat for it is cold outside.  We got to the store & we got the minutes but this large store didn't have the coats out on the rack now, in October!!  What are you waiting?  They start to have Christmas items out in the end of October.  Well thank God, for I had just bSee full size imageought a jacket & had worn it only twice & it was in the trunk of my car.  It fit Christine very well & looked good on her too.  Yeah!!  Now she has phone minutes, a new warm jacket & a new home, for her 'new life' today.  Let's go eat.  We went to a Greek restaurant & had a very good lunch.  It was time to get Christine to the shelter.  It was a private shelter so we couldn't go on the elevator with her.  Martha & I gave her a big hug & said "good bye & we are there for you at any time so please just call us".  She said "thank you & good bye".  We felt relieved that finally See full size imageour girl was in a safe & warm place until she can get an apartment of her own, & get ready for her baby to be born next year.  We will see her through & have a Baby Shower for her next year too.  Today is a 'new beginning' for dear Christine.

Martha & I were on our way to the center to get ready for the 'Life Chain' which will start at 2pm to 3:30pm.  When we aSee full size imagerrived to the center we got things ready & put out the coffee.  The people started to arrive & they signed in & received their sign & then walked up University Ave., to E. Main St. to witness to 'life'.  The cars that drive by have to see people standing, side by side in a line, with a life message, about abortion, on the sign that they are holding to witness to the public.  I was standing in front of the center to be there if some one comes late to join the line.  I was holding a sign which read 'Women are Hurt by Abortion' when a young man approached me & said that he wanted to donate some money to the pro life movement, then he reached See full size imageout his hand & handed me some change.  I counted it out later & it was 92 cents.  How sweet.  It was like the Widow's mite in the Bible.  He said that he will donate more in the future, since now he knows where the pregnancy center is located.  Okay dear Paul.  How touching was this donation, from the heart.

It was 3:30pm & the pro lifers where coming back from E. Main St. to drop off the signs & to go to socialize in the center with sSee full size imageome cider & donuts.  It was so good to see all the pro lifers & to spend some time with them.  I was told by one of See full size imagethe ladies that a man from Ethiopia had stopped her to tell her that he worked for the Planned Parenthood Federation in Ethiopia.  He said that he refused to promote abortions & was dismissed.  I met him next door at Mack's store when I returned the coffee container.  I introduced myself to him & brought him over to Focus & had him meet Martha, who was now the only one left.  We spoke with him for awhile & I asked him if he would give his testimony after the Mass that we are having on Wednesday this Wednesday at 6:30pm.  He said "yes".  We exchanged our phone numbers & he left.  I will call him to confirm the date & time.  I do hope that he will be able to come on Wednesday for all the pro lifers to hear hi powerful testimony.  What a day!!  Martha & I then went into the Material Aid Room to put away some children's clothes that I had taken home to wash & brought back to the center.  After that we went to Webster to pick up a double stroller for a client of ours.  I took Martha back home & then went home myself to eat then go to bed for it was a very busy & fruitful day.  Praise God!

 


 Tuesday, October 5, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

I was dropping off 2 end tables & a lamp that I purchased at my favorite second hand store at the Focus Center & then I was going to go to the noon Mass downtown.  I asked a strong man, from the taxi company, that we share the building with, to help me get the things out of my car, which he did. As I was leaving the center to go to Mass the doorbell rang & it was one of our clients who is due any day now with her mother.  They came to pick up the car seat that we got for the baby.  I was surprised to see them because I told them I would be there from 1-8pm but this worked out well.  I invited them into the Material Aid Room to pick up some more things for her baby girl, who will soon join us in this world.  Praise God, for this mom was going into Planned Parenthood about 7 months ago, to have an abortion & changed her mind after I showed her the graphic sign Malachi & gave her a Truth packet.  I didn't know that she changed her mind until about 3 weeks ago.  Thank you Lord!  She is the friend of our newest client that had the RU 486 abortion pills taken out of her more than a week ago, that Martha & I brought her to our doctor for the removal, & she told me that her friend had changed her mind.  I told her & her mom to continue to shop & just shut the door when finished for I was heading to go to Mass.  They said "okay" nut first I told them about the racism at Planned Parenthood & gave them some brochures to educate them.  I get the feeling that the girls mom doesn't know that she went to Planned Parenthood to have an abortion that day.  But the outcome is real good that she stayed pregnant & will be delivering her daughter soon.  Yeah!!  This is what it is all about "new life' created by God to be in this world until He call us to go to the next world for all Eternity either to be with Him or to be with the Evil One.  It's your choice!!   

 


Wednesday, October 13, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

I arrived at the center & asked for help to unload my car with baby & children items that I was blessed with from the second hand store in East Rochester.  After that I was suppose to go to Webster to pick up a small crib for one of our clients with a small baby girl.  Well that never happened.  I called our client & she couldn't come until tomorrow so I decided to wait until later tonight to pick up the items so I emailed Maria about the change of plans.  The Lord had another plan for this day.  I was expecting Tim to come to set up the bassinet for another one of our clients & to give Martha & I a ham & turkey sub for lunch.  Both came to pass.  I went out to see if the abortionist, Rachael Phelps was there & she was.  As I was walking back to the center & approached a young girl & asked if she needed any assistance.  She said that she needed a pregnancy test so I asked her follow me into the center to get on, she did.  I called to Martha to ask her if she would assist this young lady & she said that she would.  Ironically she knew her from the past.  Tony & Joy who are husband & wife came in to talk to Martha & I for a few minutes & then took some graphic signs & went out to the front lines while I worked at my desk for a few minutes of catch up, but not for long.  The doorbell rang  then Martha had stuck her head into the office to tell me that a couple with 2 children were in the Material Aid Room to get some clothes & she was busy doing a pregnancy test.  No problem Martha.  I got up & went into the Material Aid Room & there was Tony & a woman & a man & 2 young girls around 2 & 3 years old, in a stroller.  Then Tony said to me that she had an appointment at Planned Parenthood on Tuesday, my heart almost dropped.  I turned to her & asked her for what.  She said to me so matter of a fact tone of voice, which ripped my flesh, to have an abortion.  I looked right at her & said "no you're not going to kill your baby".  The man with her said something to her in Spanish, oh no, I thought.  I might not understand Spanish but I certainly can read faces & I didn't like what I saw in his.  I spoke to them both & then he said "it's not my baby".  Lord have Mercy!  I said that it didn't matter whose baby it was that this child was created by God, on loan to you both, to take care of, so work it out.  Martha was finished with the client in the Rose Room so she brought them into the room to speak to them both.  She was with them counseling them for about 15 minutes.  When they came out I continued to speak to them too.  They were given many brochures & DVD's one was the movie Bella & I showed them pictures of aborted babies to which they both reacted to.  I gave them food & diapers for their daughters, from the Material Aid Room & told then that we would help them with their needs.  Martha read to them the poem 'My Life Depends One You, which the mother reacted emotionally.  Then Martha said to the man who still stated that this was not his baby by saying "have you ever made a mistake"?  He bet his head & then the wife said "oh yea you have two other children by another woman & then he said oh yea you have a child in Peru".  What a mess!  Then Martha stated to them, with her hands up, "well then, you're one happy family"!!  As they were leaving I said to the woman that you could die from the abortion for women have, which is a well kept secret.  She just looked at me & they left.  Well, they were given lots of information to ponder.  Please Lord Jesus, please spare this child from being killed, & all the babies that are threatened by abortion, Amen. 

More to come, for we have been so very busy at the Focus Center & on the sidewalk in counseling, in front of Planned Parenthood, in saving lives, though God's grace.   


Saturday, October, 16, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

ISee full size image was the Team Captain of the 'America Needs Fatima' Rosary Rally, in front of Planned Parenthood, where we are to gather & pray the Rosary to end abortion with all our brothers & sisters in the Nation at 12 noon.  Check out: http://www.americaneedsfatima.org/. The power of people praying all at the same time throughout America & other Countries to end abortion, thus storming Heaven.  While I was still at home I received a call from one of our clients & she was there at the center already to get some diapers & baby clothes.  I told her that we aren't usually open on Saturdays but I was heading there in a little while, & for her to wait for me.  She said that she would.  I had to go to the Post Office first to mail an informational package to a young girl that I met at the gas station on Friday.  While I was getting gas at the See full size imagecorner gas station where I live, I heard a voice  reading my bumper stickers on my car, out loud.  She was saying "You can't be Pro Choice and a Catholic".  I thought, oh no Lord give me the right words to say to her for it's 10:30pm & I'm tired & I don't want to mess this up to witness the Truth to her.  I turned around to speak to her.  I found her not belligerent & defensive but cooperative & pleasant.  She said that she is a Catholic but hasn't gone to church in many years & that she doesn't believe in abortion & is on birth control.  Well, this opens yet another door.  I told her about the abortive effects of the Pill. She said that she didn't know that & turned to her girlfriend, who was sitting in the car, & said to her "did you know that"? She replied that she didn't know that either.  I went to the truck of my car & got for her & her friend a Rosary & our Focus Center's See full size imagebrochure & I saw that I had a booklet on 'How to Examine you Conscious before Confession" & gave it to her.  I said that if I could get her name & address I'd send her our Truth packet & other information to educate her.  She was open & respective to what I was saying which made me feel good.  She got a piece of paper & a pen & wrote it down & gave it to me.  I said "thank you" & that I would send her some information real soon, & if she had any question she could call me at the number that was on the Focus brochure.  She thanked me & we both left the gas station.  I said thank you to the Lord for this 'Divine Encounter' to help someone to come back to the Faith & to get off of birth control & to lead a chaste life.

I went into the center & greeted our mom & her precious baby boy.  I opened up the Material Aid Room for her to go in to shop.  About an half an hour later our clients father arrived to pick her up.  She saw that we had a play seat, for her son, but it was to big for her to take with her now in her fathers car.  She asked if she could pick it up later this evening when her grandmother can pick it up in her van.  I said that I was going to Mass at 4:30 tonight & I'll come back after Mass for her to get it, that would be fine.  She said "thank you very much for that".  "No problem, my dear", I responded back.  Her father & I started to talk & he asked me if I ever went to Corpus Christi Church?  I said "no" & then I asked him if he was Catholic.  He said that he was but hasn't been to Mass in a long time.  I said then you need to go to Confession & then go to Mass every Sunday after that.  He said his grandmother rolled over in her grave.  I said what do you mean?  He said that he had a dream of his Grandmother coming out of the cemetery & aSee full size imagepproaching him saying "how are you Michael"?  He replied "I'm fine Grandma"  She said back to him "no you are not Michael & I am very disappointed in you" & she started to walk back to the cemetery & he followed her & she turned around & said to him "you cannot follow me where I am going Michael".  He did follow her from a far & saw that she went back to her grave site & laid down & then rolled over. That dream gave me the creeps. He said that dream scared him, to say the least & he wants to go back to church.  I said "by all means come back to the Catholic Church & don't wait till it's to late".  I gave him a brochure of my parish Our Lady of Victory & when the Confession times were & a Rosary to start saying, that the Blessed Mother will draw him back to the church ASAP.  I went to get the America Needs Fatima banner & to speak to Martha who just came in for a few minutes before going outside to start the Rosary.  We thought that it might be only her & I & Rick praying but we were wrong we had a total of 18 people praying right across the street of Planned Parenthood for an hour.

There was street work being done, for the workers were See full size imageputting in new gas pipes on University Ave., for the old ones were worn & dangerous, so cars had to slow down because of the construction work & they saw us praying & had time to read our signs that read 'PRAY TO END ABORTION' & 'WOMEN DO REGRET ABORTION'.  There were only two negative people, one gave us the bird & the other stuck out her tongue.  We continued to pray for them too, otherwise it was a very positive experience.  We also prayed the Divine Mercy prayers & then went into FSee full size imageocus to have some hot chocolate & cookies.  What a nice morning & the weather was great, cool & clear. 

Please ask you son Jesus to end abortion. 
Thanks Blessed Mother.

Great News!
I just spoke to our mom, in the hospital tonight.  Mother & See full size imagedaughter are doing very well.  Her baby girl was born this evening & weighs 8lbs. 6ozs. & is 22 inches long.  This mom was going into Planned Parenthood, early part of 2010, & she saw the graphic signs & was handed the Truth packet & we spoke with her for awhile, out in the cold.  She went home instead of going into PP for the abortion.  Praise God!!  She's happy & so are we that she 'Chose Life' & her baby does too.  God is happy also.  Amen.... 

 


Tuesday, October 19, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

When I arrived at the center after Mass there were people already waiting to come into the Material Aid Room to get 'free' baby & children clothes & items. Thank God there was Sandy there to help get the things out of my car & Martha's for the center.  A few minutes later there was Donna & the two woman from Hornell which is about 45 minutes away.  Then came Carole & Jerry to be out on the front lines. I needed to get a letter off of the computer to fax it over to the church who wanted the information so that they could put it into their bulletin.  We are scheduled, at the church on October 31st. to rSee full size imageeceive 10% of the collection money, for Focus.  I pray that the parishioners will be generous to our center's work.  So I scrambled to get the letter printed out & to give it to Elroy, our Accountant, who has his office right next to ours, to fax it over to John who will put it in the bulletin.  Talk about short notice & stress.  I feel like death warmed over but I can't stop & stay home & let this ministry crumble.  The Lord will sustain me & will give me more grace to do the work that He called me to do.  The doorbell just kept on ringing & more moms were in the Material Aid Room to get the things that they needed for their children. 
 
I was in & out of the center & out on the front lines all afternoon.  Cleveland, our street person that we adopted, See full size imagestopped by & wanted food.  "I'm hungry Mary".  "Okay Cleveland I'll get you something to eat". "Do have any coffee"?  A new request?  I went over to Mack's next door to get him a cup of coffee with 1 teaspoon of sugar & cream.  He liked it a lot.  I hope that I can afford this new request.  It's more expensive then Ramom Noodles. 
 
I was looking out for the husband & wife & their two daughters that came last Thursday to Focus for Material Aid.  She said that she was scheduled for an abortion on Tuesday so I was watching for her.  I really didn't want to see her for if I didn't sSee full size imageee her then that meant that she didn't come for the abortion & had changed her mind.  I though that it was clear for it was now 3:30pm & out of Planned Parenthood they all came out one big happy family that was going to kill another member of the family.  This ministry is the hardest & I'm not bragging.  I asked he if she did it & she made it sound that she did then said that she was here for blood work & that her blood pressure was good.  Ick!!  That's all you care about as your baby is secluded to be killed in two days.  Then she said that she was told to come back on Thursday for that's the day that they do abortions.  They do See full size imagesurgical abortions on Thursday & RU 486 abortions on Tuesdays.  How evil!!  I still feel that I'm on the Twilight Zone, for those who can remember it.  Please director, holler "cut, it's a rap you can go home now".   I pleaded with her & her husband was a snot about us talking to her.  Today she referred him as her boyfriend, no mater which he is, he is not the father of this precious baby & he wants this baby DEAD.  Just then Donna M. came by & I engaged her to help me in this situation.  I saw that Martha went over to try to talk to him who was with the two girls in the stroller.  Natasha asked if she could get diapers in the center so Donna & I brought her in.  Donna told her that she would adopt the baby & have an open adoption which meant that if she wanted the baby back she could have him or her back when things got better for her.  I gave her Fr. Tony's phone number for he speaks Spanish & Donna & I gave her our phone number's too to call us.  She wrote all the numbers down on her piece of paper.  She got some diapers & shoes for her children & I gave her my jacket & put in the pockets a Green Scapular, of conversion, & the poem 'My Life Depends on You'.  Oh please dear Lord save this baby & all babies from abortion.  Amen.  She left the center & said that her boyfriend See full size imagewas crazy.  I told her that he didn't love her for he wanted her baby to be killed & what kind of man would want that?  He was across the street at the Gibbs Street Restaurant & he left the two girls in the stroller alone & was walking down the street.  Natasha went over to get her children & Donna & I again asked her not to go for the abortion on Thursday.  I told her that woman do die from abortions which they do.  This is a well kept secret of abortionist & Planned Parenthood.  She said 'thank you" & went with the stroller to catch up to him.  I called out to him one more time before they walked away.  Lord have Mercy!   Donna had to go but said that we should pray & to fast tonight for them.   I agreed.  I said god bye o Donna & went back into the center. 
 
Martha & I did some work in the center & ate supper together talking about the events of the day.  We had a '40 Days for Life' meeting at 7pm but before that we called our clients to tell ten that we had what they had requested from us, like strollers & cribs & bassinets & car seats, to pick up.  They were happy to receive that phone call.  We had a good meeting & were planning the 'Victory Day' on Sunday, October 31st. at 2pm.  See full size imageMartha & Bill & Pat were sorting out baby clothes & I was working in the office.  I left around 9:30pm.  My heart is heavy to the men & woman who want these baby killed.  How evil, how sick & how selfish too.  They are jeopardizing their souls for eternal damnation too.
 

Wednesday, October 20, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

Martha & I were kept busy in the center for awhile before going out on the front lines.  I stayed in the office longer to do some important paper work leaving Martha by herself for awhile on the front lines which isn't good.  She was by herself then Carole came then I came outside & then Linda came next.  She read the Exorcism prayers & I went into the center to get the Blessed Salt & Holy Water that Fr. Brian blessed a couple of See full size imageweeks ago at the Mass he celebrated at Focus, he included the Exorcism prayers with the blessings.  Linda sprinkled the Holy Water & Blessed Salt on the sidewalk to come against the evil spirits there at Planned Parenthood, in Jesus' name.  Just as I was walking back to be with the girls the man who works at Planned Parenthood came walking down the sidewalk, he was in front of me.  He's the one that doesn't like the idea that we put our literature box on the wooden edge by the bushes.  He always stops to tell us to take it off & we do then put it right back on again, at times.  Yesterday he got out of his car & came over.  I walked away & asked Carole to go over to him, which she did.  She told him what is more important the things on the ledge or you killing babies in there?  He said to her "so they won't turn out like you".  How evil!  He went in the Planned Parenthood building to do more damage there. How sad.  
 
Kathy came a few minutes later & she handed to me a bunch of 'See full size imageVoting Pro Life' brochures with a Holy Card of Our Lady of Guadeloupe in it.  We talked & prayed for awhile. She & her husband are moving to Buffalo this month & I will certainly miss them both for they are fantastic people & have blessed the Focus Center with many things over the years.  God bless them in their new move.
 
We had a mother come over to us with her 2 year old son, what See full size imagea cutie he was.  Martha brought them into the Material Aid Room to get come things for him.  While I was outside I gave Truth packets to 2 girls coming out of Planned Parenthood & after they went back in to get their friend she wanted one too.  I gave them a Growth & Development DVD to watch together & to share with their other friends too.  Prayer & Education are the Keys. 
 
Carole went into her car to get her little dog.  He was a rescue See full size imagedog that was abused & when she got him he was emaciated.  She & her husband has now bought him back to health & he is so cut & well behaved.  People can be mean.
 
Linda mentioned that there was a web site that we should look at & it is http://www.missysmith2010.com/.  I recommend a WARNING first to look at it.  The Truth is powerful but can be upsetting to say the least.  This woman is making reparation for what she has done in her past so that others will not follow in her footsteps & be harmed by the abortion industry.  Thanks Missy. 
 
Rob came & that was a surprise & then came our birthday boy See full size imageBill & after we sang Happy Birthday to him he walked over to the other side of the sidewalk to be with Rob.  Guys like to stick together.  Then Tucker came .  He told me that he ordered a new mega phone for us & we should be getting it real soon.  Yeah & thanks Tuck.
 
Our 3 fantastic Elim Bible Institute Students came at 4pm to hSee full size imageelp us out at Focus.  They are a tremendous help to me.  I gave them all assignments & they assisted a new mom who just came in for baby clothes in the Material Aid Room which they enjoyed.  Two of the girls made up Truth packets &separated our diapers in plastic bags so that we will have enough for all our moms in need.  One of the girls wrote thank you letters to our benefactors that have blessed us with a monetary gift.  Need less to say I kept them quite busy.  Then Pat our great grandmother, of the babies that were saved from abortion, came in for some baby clothes & to talk about what was going on in her life.  She is going through a lot poor baby.  We love & pray for you dear Pat & don't give up for the Lord is watching over you & your family. 
 
A pro lifer named Pat came in to assist us in the center.  She is See full size imagetrying to get us more diapers through a Huggie Program, through FoodLink.  Thanks Pat. 
 
 
This ministry is based on all the helpers that bless us with their See full size imageprayers & presence, love & support, emotionally & financially.  I am soooo blessed to know these wonderful people.  Praise you Lord & thank you so much.  We couldn't do it without you dear Lord & the people that you have sent to us. I give all the Glory to God!!!  
 
 

Thursday, October 21, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

Martha & I got to the front lines at 9:15am today, the weather was miserable, to say the least, it was cold & it rained off & on all day too.  We wanted to be there for all the women who were scheduled for an abortion & also for Nat who was scheduled for an abortion today.  Martha & I spoke to her & her boyfriend on two separate occasions & gave them DVD's on Growth & Development & the Bella movie, also children's clothes & diapers for their 2 daughters.  We showed them pictures & told them that we would help them during the pregnancy & after.  The boyfriend wants this precious baby dead because this baby is not his.  So a baby should be killed if he or she is not yours?  How evil!  If you can't raise this child then place this child up for adoption & give this child a life with parents who will love & care for him or her as their own.  This is not their biological baby either but they want a child.  'The quick kill mentally', how selfish & disturbing.  I told her to say "good bye to the boyfriend & not the baby".  She said that he was crazy, so I rest my case.  Well they never showed up & we were there from 9:15am until 4:30pm & we didn't see them going in or coming out of Planned Parenthood.  Yeah!  But the abortionist killed many babies that day.  The girls were slumped down in the either the front or back seats of the cars driving them out.  One car even had 2 children in it.  They lost a brother or a sister & was brought to the very place, by they parents, that killed him or her.  It's enough to make you sick & it does.  I told the father that he put a curse on his family & killed generations with this abortion.  They just look at you, wait & see!!  We pleaded with the mothers to 'chose life' & that we could help them & that their baby had a heartbeat & deserves a birthday & not a death day.  They deserved to be protected & not harmed.  I call the abortionist & the workers at Planned Parenthood "bullies" & tell them to pick on someone their own size.  It's so evil! 
 
Across the street there was a mom walking her young See full size imagedaughter, who was about 3 years old, down the sidewalk & Martha called to her asking if she would like a 'free' stroller.  She hollered from across the street "yes" & started to cross the street over to where Martha & I were standing by the bushes.  As the young girl was walking she saw the graphic signs & said "oh no" then she saw another picture & said "oh no" & walked over to another & said "oh no", as we were trying to turn the pictures around so she couldn't see them.  The mother was not alarmed that her daughter saw the pictures & followed Martha into the Material Aid Room for clothing.  When she came back out to be with me, for at that time it was just Martha & myself, later on Tony & Joyce & Lynda came to join us, she told me what had happened to this young mother yesterday.  She was walking down on of the inner city street by herself & was jumped by a guy who beat her up & stole her purse with all her ID in it.  When she crossed over the street I didn't see her face for I was looking at the little girls reaction to the signs.  The See full size imagemoms face was cut & she had to go to the Emergency Room for stitches yesterday & was hidden by a hood & scarf.  Martha said that she took the stroller & will come back later on to get the other things that her little girl wanted, she had to go to the police department to fill out some more forms.  Well she kept her promise & came back about 2 hours later, to get the things in the center that she wanted.  As they were coming down the sidewalk the little girl, who was in the stroller, put both of her hands up in the air when she saw Martha.  It was sooo cute & heartwarming to behold.  They went back into the Material Aid Room to finish the deal.  When they came out they walked passed me.  The mom stopped to say hi to me & the little girl saw the mega phone that I was holding & said "I want that".  I looked at her & said "no honey".  Then she said it again "I want that" & pointed to the mega phone that I was holding.  Again I said "no sweetheart, that's not for little girls".  Then she tried to turn around the graphic sign, that I had turned around, so that she couldn't see it.  I thought to myself 'you little dickens'.  Then the mom said in a quiet voice "she tired & needs a nap".  As they were walking away I heard the little girl say in a loud voice "I'M NOT TIRED".   I said to them, "Bye Bye".  In all my years I never met a child so young with such a strong  personality as she had.   She'll keep the mom busy that's for sure.  She was so cute with the bows in her hair & the determined look on her face.  Come to find out that this mother lost her son after heart surgery when he was about 8 momths old & the little girl, who was born before her brothers death, names most of her stuffed animals Michael, after her deceased brother.  How sweet.
 
Tony & Joyce, Martha & Lynda was now on the front lines praying & witnessing.  I saw that a young girl was watching us from across the street at the Veterinary Hospital, probably was talking in all that was happening. Then I saw that she had crossed the street to our side & was talking to Tony & his wife Joyce.  I decided to walk over to them to hear what she was saying & to offer any help that I could.  I will say talking to people one to one is not easy for me especially if they are combative.  I just walk away now rather than argue with them because I found out through my years of experience that you cSee full size imagean't.  I went over to her & said "hi can we help you"?  She said "why do you think that by hollering at these people that you are doing any good"?  Wow, okay I will try to talk to her for she asked a question & I will calmly answer her.  I said back to her that more than 50 babies have been saved, through the grace of God, by us being out here hollering at people.  She then said "I don't believe in abortion, only in rape & incest, but is this the best way"?  Then I told her 'My Story' about how I was gang raped & conceived twins & miscarried them & how I grieve them & know that I will see them someday after I die.  I also said that no child should die for the crime of their father & that the mother will suffer even more that she had had an abortion, for that was her fault but the rape wasn't.  She said "is this all you do"?  I said back to her that I was also the director of the Pregnancy Center right next to this yellow building & we offer free pregnancy tests, baby & children clothes, doctors & ultrasound referrals & literature for educational purposes too.  I offered her our Truth packet but she said "no thank you".  I told her that education was very important & the more that you know the more that you can help yourself & others.  Then she said "well Planned Parenthood does good things too, for I went there for birth control".  Now we're cooking.  I said back to her "do you know about the abortive effects of the birth control pills & what they do to you health too, possibly causing breast cancer, heart disease & other health problems too"?  "No" she replied.  I said that Planned Parenthood deceived you & you said that they helped you, see what I mean!!  When you take the Pill you could be aborting 2 pregnancies a year & that you probably have some children in Heaven, so you want to make sure that you don't go to Hell, otherwise you will never be with them for all Eternity. You have to repent of your sins & please do it before it's to late.  She then said "I'll take my chances for I'm not giving up sex".  Sex is not worth going to Hell for I called to her as she was walking back across the street to the Veterinary Hospital.  I hope & pray that some one will come to her to water the seed that was just planed in her soul.  God will not abandon her & He will pursue her.  I pray that I will be better with the one on one when I am challenged & not sound self righteous.  Lord please forgive me of my Pride & male me more of your instrument to speak with holy boldness with love.  Tough love is LOVE & not hatred.  The Truth is hard to accept & some don't accept it readily but hopeful in time they will. "You shall know the Truth and the Truth shall set you See full size imagefree" but first it will make you miserable :(  
I waited for her to come back out of the Vets to tell her to check out this web site for information but I must have missed her.  I felt badly that she didn't take the Truth packet but know that the seed of Truth was planted in her heart, by what I said to her.  Now it's up to her & her 'free will'.  Lord have Mercy!  Her & everyone that I talk to is planted in my heart, maybe that's way I hurt so much. 
 
Great News!  A mom, who had called me for some boy clothes for her baby, who is due November 15th., told me that she had See full size imagechanged her mind, to have an abortion, because we were out in front of Planned Parenthood showing her the pictures & talking to her.  This was exciting news to hear.  Then on Thursday I received a phone call from a young girl, that needed  clothes for her baby, that will be born next month too.  She said that it was because we were out, in front of Planned Parenthood, that she changed her mind about having an abortion that day.  This was great news to hear again.  Praise God!!
 
 

 
Friday October,24, 2010 in my world
 
See full size imageI went to a funeral Mass for my dear friend Mary Ann's mother who died at Monroe Community Hospital for the Mass at 11am.  It was a beautiful Mass with the celebrant Fr. Dennis Bonsonori, who is related to my sister's husband, a distant relative but a powerful on to say the least. After the Mass  I went to Beth, Bath & Beyond to return my sleep mask for See full size imageanother, they work very well in keeping out the sunlight, when the cashier spotted my '40 Days for Life' pin that I was wearing.  She said "I like your pin & I don't believe in abortion but my girlfriend's mother made her have one just a couple of days ago".  My heart sank.  She went on to say that she offered to adopt the baby but the mother wanted non of that.  I asked how old the friend was & she said 18.  I asked why she couldn't have run away to a safe house.  She said that her mother followed her everywhere she went.  What power she has over her daughter.  I said that I was the director of the Focus Pregnancy Help Center & gave her my card & told her if she or her girlfriend needed any help just please call me .  I said for her to watch out for some complications of having had an abortion & she said that she was suicidal before the abortion.  I said for her to watch her closely for that is one of the complications from having had an abortion.  Just then my cell phone rang & it was one of our clients saying that she was heading over to the center to pick up the items that I had promised her.  Unplanned, for I had just gone grocery shopping See full size image& needed to go to the bank to deposit the checks that the center had received over the past week, into the bank.  I hadn't planned on this but this was the only time that she could get her friends van to pick up all the things which included a bassinet, Pac n Play & a car seat.  So I go with the flow & said my good bye to the sorrowful cashier to which I felt her pain & off to the center I go with my milk & cheese, in a bag, in the back seat of my car.  All will work out, it always does.  My heart went out to the young girl whose heart was crushed by her girlfriends abortion forced by the mother, who will be held more accountable than the daughter, for the murder of this precious child. 
 
I got to the center to meet our client who had changed her mind of having an abortion because we were out there in front of Planned Parenthood to educate her to what abortion was all See full size imageabout.  She went home that day after choosing life.  Yeah!  She was a sweet young girl with a huge smile.  We said hi & she told me that I had beautiful hair.  I said that her hair was beautiful too.  We got help form the guys at the taxi company & Mack from next door to put the things in the van.  The driver of the van was handicapped & couldn't help & I couldn't help due to my nerve root compression at L5 injury, which the abortionist Morris Wortman caused back in 1978. I also have my current challenge Fibromyalgia too, that's not including the gross abdominal pain that I suffer every day of my life.  What a mess I am.  She was so happy that everything fitted in the van & I thanked the driver for taking such good care of our girl & gave her a hug & off they went.  Her baby is due in the middle of November & we'll get some baby boy clothes for him before that. 
 
I thanked the guys for helping us & off to East Rochester I go to put the groceries away before our meeting at 3:30 at SSee full size imagetarbuck's at the 12 corners in Brighton.  I got there in a hurry. Pat, our Monday evening counselor, & two lovely ladies from the Angel Ministry, where they make dresses for women in need all over the world, were waiting for me.  We met to see how our two ministries could help each other, in helping our clients, live a better life.  They were so interesting & ironically we knew the same people.  They go to St. Cecilia's Parish & Fr. Leone there is my & the Focus Center's Spiritual Director & the other priest there burns our DVD's that we give out to our clients to save lives.  They know Muriel, who is a wonderful prayer warrior & has a ministry, of prayer.  It was a blessed afternoon to be with all these fine women. 

 
Tuesday, October 26, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
What a day!!  I knew Martha wasn't going to be there & warned Donna about that.  She was great for she came into the center to help me with ALL the mothers that came in with their children to get baby & children's clothes.  It all started when I arrived at the center & I ended up speaking with two pro lifers who are suffering at the news that their 3 year old grandson is suffering with cancer & is going through many treatments that are difficult for the child & for the family.  They gave a generous donation to the work at the Focus Center, how generous & loving.  My heart & prayers go out to them & their family.  Lord please heal this precious little boy & thank you.  Then they went to the front lines to pray & I went into the center.  All of a sudden the doorbell rang, rang & rang again.  So many mothers came into the Material Ad Room for clothes & sSee full size imagemall items.  I also received a call from a mom who was in need of diapers & formula & her husband came in later on to get the items.  He also took a Rosary for her & for him.  His wife is Catholic & will have their baby Baptized real soon.  This is great news!!  I am so happy that we are there for our moms in a short time duration until things get better for them in a longer duration.  There was 7 pro lifers out on the front lines while Donna & I were manning the center.  We were also putting away the donations that we received from good people. 
 
I went into the Great Room to eat a quick sandwich & the doorbell rang & I was called out to come to talk to a young girl.  I lead her into the Rose Room & we started to talk. She told me about her friend who is pregnant with triplets who might be aborting on Thursday.  She was lead into the center by Susan & I was talking to her about birth control then I started to talk about abortion & she told me that her girlfriend iSee full size images pregnant with triplets but her mother said that there was enough children in the house already.  Then she said that her girlfriend was at Planned Parenthood now & she was suppose to meet her there & get her birth control patch!! Check out: http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2005/jul/05072703.html  "What" I said !  I started to give her everything that I had on abortion & adoption & told her See full size imagethat she will be the 'life saver' of these 3 little babies & that we will pray for her & here is my phone # if you need me for anything.  Off she went to Planned Parenthood hopefully she will be used by God to save these precious babies from being killed on the abortion day.... Thursdays.  My prayers go out to this situation & hope that this mother chooses life for her 3 children.  Life is cheap at Planned Parenthood! 
 
I went out to the front lines for the first time all day to give the team more packets of Truth packets.  When I arrived there was a car that came out of the parking lot & Susan offered them the packet of information.  The passenger started to ask some questions & I asked the driver to come along the side of the sidewalk near us.  They saw the graphic pictures & started to ask some questions.  One question was "what if the girl can't afford the baby"?  So I said "that's no reason to kill a baby, there is NO reason, abortion is always evil".  Then Susan told them that Planned Parenthood was Racist.  I said that there was a lot of information in the packet that you just took.  Then he said "what about birth control"?  I told them about the abortion effect of birth control & that sex outside of marriage is a serious sin & must be confessed.  The right way that pleases the Lord is to get married first then have sex & your children, any other way is a great offense to the dear Lord.  The man said "keep up the good work that your all are doing".  We all said "thank you" & they drove away.  Just then I heard a voce saying to me "are you Mary"?  I said "yes".  She said that she had brought some blankets for the moms &  said why don't you follow mew into the center.  We walked & talked at the same time.  I brought her into the center & gave her a tour, she was impressed.  She then asked me about why I thought birth control was wrong.  I told her & she thanked me for the information which she didn't know about.  Education & prayer are the keys.  She wrote us a check to help us in the work that See full size imagewe do at Focus.  She also gave us some baby clothes & some beautiful blankets for our babies.  Thank you so very much for blessing us Suzanne, please come again. 
 
The doorbell rang again & it was three adults & two small children.  I asked Donna if she could assist them in the Material Aid Room.  All of a sudden by what they were saying I realized that they were the family that 'chose life' about a year ago.  Here is the story told by Tony:  We were wrapping things up at Planned Parenthood and were putting the signs away (by this time it was pretty much Joyce and I) and this women comes out of the vet hospital across the street from the focus center. She has her dog and a young child about two or three years old. Well she starts coming across the street towards me.  Joyce is already in the van, and I am thinking oh boy, here we go. She was calling to me excuse me, excuse me.  I said yes? She said I just want to thank you all. I said what?  She repeated it and said I want to thank you all for being here.  About a year ago her daughter went for an abortion and someone handed her a pamphlet and after reading it she decided not to have the abortion.  She told her mother that she had a gut feeling that it was wrong but after looking at the pamphlet she couldn't go through with it. The mother  was so happy because now she has a beautiful grandson about a year old. Isn't that a great story. I told her we would love to meet them and to bring them down to the center.  I think they might come down this week.  Well they did.  They will give their testimony at the '40 Days for Life' Victory Rally on Sunday at 2pm at Focus.  This is awesome. 
 
Tony arrived to help out at the center & I told him that his friends were here at Focus today & that they agreed to come on Sunday to give their testimony.  He smiled from ear to ear, he was sooo happy to hear this.  He was so helpful in the center & made up many Truth packets for the team to hand out.  Martha arrived & I was happy to see her, she is such a blessing to Focus & the street ministry.  I believe that it was her that had handed this mother the packet that God used to save this little baby's life.  She wasn't with us today for she was taking her friend to the doctors for eye surgery.  What a wonderful woman she is.  It was busy in the center & the doorbell ran for it was See full size imagePat for the last meeting for the '40 Days for Life'.  Rick & Lee came next.  Martha was eating our lasagna & salad for our supper, for we hadn't any.  Martha made coffee & we had chocolate chip cookies for dessert.  The meeting was chuck full of information.  It was great.  After everyone had left Martha & I & Pat stayed to put away donations that we ere blessed with.  Great job guys. 
 
 
As we were leaving Elaine & Janet stopped by to bless us with two Captain chairs for the Great Room.  Thanks so much girls See full size imagefor they look beautiful in the Great Room, a prayer answered.  Thanks Lord you even answer the smallest of prayers.  "Good night" we all said to each other, as we left the Focus Center.

 
Wednesday, October 27, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
I arrived to the center after Mass & so did Martha.  We opened up the rooms to get ready for the afternoon.  I was I much pain I though that I would die but I just can't go home & feel sorry for myself I have to keep on going through the grace of God.  I helped Martha put out the signs & the literature box & I was summoned into the center to speak to our accountant who is working to straighten us out to make sure that our center is up to the Federal Government 's requests, as a 501(c)3 organization.  So Martha was out on the front lines with Jerry who showed up to be with her.  He was across the street with signs & the he was praying the Rosary deep in prayer to end abortion.  Sandy came & was working in the Material Aid Room putting the donations away.  She was very busy this afternoon & is a great blessing to the center. I was so upset to see See full size imagecigarette butts by the container to put the butts in by the front door.  I spoke strongly to the supervisor to tell his employees that this is not acceptable to throw the butts on the ground by the container that they must put the butts in the container.  Such children that you have to tell them what to do.  Give me a break!  Needless to say that they probably won't do it again. I was upset & felt disrespected. 
 
The wind was blowing & I was picking up the signs that were See full size imagefalling down all the time & with this back & abdominal pain I just gave up bending down & put the signs by the ledge.  I felt badly because I was in such pain I couldn't believe it & bending down really hurts because of the nerve root compression at L5.  I want to do God's work so I asked Him again to heal me so that I could do more in the center & on the street for His Glory. 
 
I was disappointed to see that Carole wasn't there today, hope See full size imageall is well, but Lynda arrived & then her beautiful daughter Lisa came later to witness.  I spoke to 2 girls that drove into Planned Parenthood one went into the building & the other came over to us to talk to us.  She was a beautiful young lady of 17.  She had her act together with her head on her shoulders.  She looked intently at the graphic pictures of the aborted babies with such compassion, it made me almost cry.  She took the Truth Packet & wanted more information because she was doing a report on abortion, so I brought her into the center & gave her lots of See full size imageinformation for her paper.  She goes to Jefferson High School.  She told us that her sister was there for the Depo shot.  I told her that it was a very dangerous drug that causes abortions.  It also causes fractures & has many side effects.  We all, on the front lines, encouraged her to talk to her older sister & to share the information that she was given.   She said that she would & said thank you & good bye.  What a lovely girl that is not sexually active & wants to do the right thing & wait until marriage to have sex & then her children & in the mean time she wants to go to school & be something.   You Go Girl!! 
 
Paul came & he was praying with Martha the Rosary.  Lynda had mentioned to me that I had once brought out some baby items to witness to the public driving by.  So after Paul had finished praying I asked him if he would come into the center tSee full size imageo get the wooden bassinet & put it out on the sidewalk to witness to the public, he said that he would.  He put a teddy bear in it.  Thanks Paul, I hope that helps get people to understand what we are talking about out there.  Just then the school bus driver gave us a positive honk & waved to us giving us encouragement in what we were doing out in front of Planned Parenthood, to help save lives.   I told Lynda of my new strategy.  I said that I was inspired to what Martha had told me earlier on that a woman had told her that she was in there for See full size imagea Depo shot because she didn't want anymore children.  I thought to myself 'how stupid'.  So I'm starting the "Women are 'Stupid' campaign.  Sorry to offend any woman but then it doesn't apply to you, if I do.  The definition of stupid is: 
  1. in a state of stupor; dazed; stunned; stupefied
  2. lacking normal intelligence or understanding; slow-witted; dull
  3. showing or resulting from a lack of normal intelligence; foolish; irrational: a stupid idea
No offense,  this sounds like a lot of women who bought the lies & deception of Planned Parenthood.  They would rather not have a baby but take a drug that can kill them.  How stupid.  They want to have sex & not get sexual diseases or pregnant or lose their self esteem.  They think that all these birth control pills or shots or devices isn't going to hurt them!!!  How stupid. What about their souls?  Having sex outside of marriage is a serious sin which could lead you to Hell, fo all eternity.  Is it worth it??  Plus the woman loses her power with "yes" rather than "no", where she loses her power. Why would she do that?  Sex isn't worth to kill (a baby) or die (herself) or to go to Hell for.  It's a wonderful act of love between a husband & wife. You'll live a happier, healthier, & a better life. Who wouldn't want that!   Let's not be stupid but be smart!! 
 

 
Thursday, October 27, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

When I arrived at the center Martha, Tony, & his wife Joy were there.  Martha made coffee & then Carole came in. I then received a phone call & it was on of our moms who chose life needing me to pick her up at her new apartment to take her to the shelter for the last time before she moves into her new studio apartment.  So I went to pick her up to take her to the shelter.  She is now about 12 weeks pregnant & things are looking up for her since she had the RU 486 pills taken out, about 4 weeks ago.  When I picked her up she asked for me to stop at the corner store for a hot dog.  They didn't have hot dogs but she came out with a piece of pizza instead.  She was grateful that I had picked her up to take her to the shelter, for it was a cold day & she hadn't worn her jacket. As I dropped her off I said to her that if she needed anything please just call me.  I gave her a hug & said "good bye".  Before I went back to the center I stopped at Wendy's to get a hamburger for lunch.  When I got back to the center I stayed to eat my hamburger & talk to Suzanne, our Thursday counselor, about some things.  She was busy with a client in the Material Aid Room.  I did a couple of things & waited until she was finished & sat down to talk to her about some upcoming events.  Then the doorbell rang & it was a young girl needing a pregnancy test & some children clothes.  Then the doorbell rang again & it was my friend Sue who was dropping off some diapers.  She asked me how I was doing & I said that I was in pain & she prayed for me to God to heal me, she did that right in the hallway.  What a sweetie.
 
I went outside to join the team & they told me that they had just spoken to a man, who works for the City, & he came over to them & told our team that his mother was almost aborted.  His grandmother, who was pregnant with his mother, flung herself over the garage roof trying to abort the baby.  Both survived & she had the baby who was his mother but if she was successful then his mother wouldn't be here nor would he be here.  Ironically, when the grandmother was ill the daughter, who she tried to abort, took care of her.  Go figure!!  My grandmother aborted her daughter at Johns Hopkins in 1920 & two and a half years later she was pregnant again, with my mother, & she was going to abort again but thank God that my great mother talked her out of doing it again otherwise I would not be her nor would my mother & my sister & the rest  of the family either.  Abortion is murder & with one baby aborted it is a generation that is lost. 
 

Tuesday, November 2, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

I just came from the Requiem Mass for the dead for this is the Feast of the Holy Souls Purgatory.  When I arrived at the center there was Maria & Ann Marie from Dansville.  They're interning here on the front lines, here in Rochester.  They will start to protest Planned Parenthood, for the first time ever, at the Planned Parenthood, in Danville there that does RU 486 abortions.  They will be setting presence for this will be the first time anyone has ever protested the Planned Parenthood there.  Praise God!!!  Then the doorbell rang & it was one of our mothers picking up the high chair that she wanted when she came in yesterday.  She refused the stroller because it wasn't pink.  Oh well it was 'free'.  I love our moms but they can be picky at times even when the items are free.  I don't think that her little girl would mind to sit in a dark blue stroller.  I don't know who it was but someone stole a picture off of the wall in the lady's bathroom.  Do you believe it!!  It could have been anyone & not one of our clients because we would have seen them & the front door is open at times & anyone could walk in.  Lord have Mercy on the one that stole the picture & the soap.  The bathroom is off limits for 'free' items, if it is one of our girls.  Nothing is sacred in the pregnancy center.
 
Martha gave two pregnancy tests today & the Material Aid Room was buzzing with many moms receiving many nice things for their babies.  The breast pump went real fast & so did many children & baby clothes.  The new Great Room is filling up with many large items & we must give them away before next weeks Mass on Wednesday, November 10th..  One of the moms said that we gave her a rubber baby model of a 12 week old baby, in the womb, while coming out of Planned Parenthood, after finding out that she was pregnant.  She said that when they pulled out of the parking lot I hollered to them & I gave the Truth packet to them & they stopped & received it.  She said that she read over & over again the brochures, so I gave her three new brochures today & she thanked me.  I'm so happy when someone wants to learn more about the Truth & get educated.  She just had her baby & was never abortion minded thank God. She was so grateful of the things that she received today & said that we had many nice things.  I am grateful to all the generous donations of so many great people & my friends at the thrift shop in East Rochester & Maria, who blesses our ministry with many nice things.  We couldn't do it without you all.  Thank you again!!
 
John was in the center working on getting the paperwork up to date.  I had made him, a sandwich & he enjoyed it.  He is a blessing to the Focus Center.  I met a woman who said that she worked for the Planned Parenthood in Ethiopia & was deceived to learn that Planned Parenthood kills little babies in their mothers wombs.  She was so sorrowful & has repented.  I felt so badly for her for she was in such pain for what she did in her past.  She can make it up for what she does in the present. 
 
I went out to be with the team on the front lines.  We witnessed to the public & then all of a sudden there were two young guys who planted themselves across the street with make shift signs.  I was hard on them that's for sure.  They turned out to be two mixed up guys & it was a painful experience for me.  They are non practicing Catholics & were so mixed up about so many things & their Faith.  I had said to them "you're mothers are pro life".  And the one young man said "my mother is pro choice".  I then said then you have some brothers or sisters in Heaven.  This statement upset him & he called his mother on his cell phone.  She said that it was between her & her God.  The other guy mentioned that yellow was blue if he wanted it to be. He was treating God as a magician, it was soooo sad & disturbing that's for sure.  The Death Escort, Barry Swan was leaning the Planned Parenthood where he commits sin & he made a turn & came to approach the two naive boys were protesting but didn't really know what they were doing.  I was trying to cross the street to approach the situation when the Death Escort left.  The poor guys said  that the baby in the womb wasn't a baby, then what was it??  I told then that the baby's heart is beating at 18 to 21 days, after conception, in the womb & that they were once in the womb & they're human.  How do you explain that??  They were so messed up & it was so sad. I heard them talking that they were planning to have more people come to join them next time.  I said "bring them on", the more the better because hopefully someone will be converted that the Lord will use us to help someone.  Then they question God, I said that if you don't believe in God then ask him to relieve himself to you.  The one guy called his mother again asking her more questions.  They said that they were 'free thinkers', how dangerous.  I said that you need guidance to direct you for you will go astray, which you are doing.  I asked them if they were going to Mass every Sunday & they said "no".  I said that not going to Mass on Sundays is a mortal sin & if you died right now you will go to Hell because you know that to be true.  It is a mortal sin which dams your soul to Hell so be sorry for your sins & go to Confession to be absolved. 
 

 
Wednesday, November 3, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
The abortionist Planned Parenthood Rachel Phelps was giving a talk in Syracuse, NY & this was what was reported back to me.
 
The protest went well.  There were only about 20 of us but we marched up and down the sidewalk and at one point said the Rosary together.  We never saw Dr. Phelps but we made our presence known to those who went to the talk and when they exited after 8 PM.  Off and on a car would drive by honking its horn in favor of us.  However, one woman whom we assume attended the meeting told us she adopted children but did believe in abortion, adding that she works in a poor school and sees the bad side of what children go through and should not have to.  That was the basis for her belief.  She told us to adopt children so they can be spared miserable, unproductive lives but no one will because they're black.  One of our protesters, a mother of 7, said she would adopt.
 
Later, a young college-age looking woman who attended the talk approached us and in a friendly manner said she understood our protest but she believed in a woman's right to govern her own body.  She said Dr. Phelps spoke on teen pregnancy and the effect of our culture on sexuality through the media, etc.  Several of us tried to talk to her but she was quite glib although not verbally combative.  One of the protesters loudly kept saying things to her, such as babies being killed, etc. and it was difficult for us to listen to her while he was talking.  I told him to let her finish.  She thanked me for that.  It probably could have could have been a productive discussion with her, in my opinion, but the guy who was bizarre prevented that.  At one point she said she was a Christian and I countered with killing isn't Christian or to that effect. 
 
Another incident took place when a car with teenagers (that's my guess) stopped their car and a girl said, and I'm paraphrasing, "It's my body" and other statements and ended with, as they drove away, "FU!" and gave us the finger.  I said to our group to pray for her.  She may have  had an abortion or is living a disastrous life.
 
I did contact two TV news stations and the newspaper but none of them approached us.  One TV station told me they were going to cover Dr. Phelps' talk.
  
This is a short synopsis of the article in the 'Good Health' newsaper (a very liberal, biased newspaper), November 2010. 
 
Phelps, (the abortionist) in Rochester, is the Associate Medical Director at Planned Parenthood who has served on expert advisory committee for the National Campaign to prevent teen & unplanned pregnancy & the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals.  (Are you kidding to think that abortion is healthy for mother & child).  She has lectured nationally for the National Abortion (baby killing) Federation, & the Medical Students for Choice. (Some doctors they will turn out to be, I thought that a doctor was suppose to save lives, not take lives, how stupid of me).  She completed a Residency in Pediatrics (poor kids) at the University of Rochester, (a killing hospital).  She was in the New York Times article "We Can Do Better', (we sure can by NOT KILLING OUR CHILDREN DR. PHELPS) published July 18,2010. 
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/18/magazine/18abortion-t.html?pagewanted=all. Phelps is on the left side. These are two very confused women. 
 
 
 
It was good that Phelps wasn't at Planned Parenthood today, for she was in Syracuse (poor Syracuse) so Martha & I mostly stayed in the center to put things away in the Material Aid Room.  We are being blessed with so many things. We went outside at times to talk to the people going in & out of Planned Parenthood.  They are victims of the lies & deception of Planned Parenthood.  I pray that people will wake up from their sleep.  I was outside at the time that our three sweet Elim students came to help us out in the center.  Poor girls, for I kept them sooo busy doing so much work.  They don't complain but keep on going.  They got to help out some moms to get some nice things in the Material Aid Room, which they enjoyed.  They like to talk with the moms & to see their babies.  Then I asked for them to clean the car seats that we were given & to put away boxes of baby & children clothes.  They made up more Truth packets for us to hand out on the front lines.  Elizabeth wrote a Thank You letter for a nice woman that blessed us with a donation.  So much to do.  Martha had to leave around 5pm tonight. Alicia came to drop off more children's clothes & I said "good bye" to the students at 6:30pm & thanked them for all the hard work that they did in the center tonight.  Such great helpers. Tucker came earlier & went out to the front lines & prayed by himself outside.  Poor Alicia, I was so wound up that I told her my life story, poor girl.  I think I shocked her but she listened to my tale of woe.  She gave me a big hug & I know that she felt for me.  She is so sweet.  I ate by myself around 9pm, for I was so busy, which was good.  I went home around 10:30pm.  So much to do at a pregnancy center.  Glad that I'm not married.... poor husband, I'd never be home to see him.  The single life is very fulfilling & rewarding.  Thank God for good friends & my cat Godfree. 
 

 
Thursday, November 4, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
I stayed in the center while Martha went outside to be on the front lines.  Bill was across the street so I felt like I could stay in the center to do some things before going outside.  Suzanne was coming at 1:30pm so then I could be out there with Martha.  When Suzanne arrived I shared some things with her then went outside.  Martha told me that a car with a white woman & an African American young girl had pulled out of the parking lot & the girl was slumped down in the front seat.  Phelps had already murdered little babies earlier this morning & will continue until she goes home later this day.  A young girl had come out of Planned Parenthood & all I said to her was that they kill babies in there & that we could help her.  She told to shut up & walked away down the street & called to her as she walked about a couple of other this that she probably didn't know about.  You just keep on trying to tell the Truth & hope & pray that people will change, through the grace of God. 
 
Two girls went into Planned Parenthood & I said that we could help them & the one girl said "thank you" & walked right into that evil place.  When they both came out the girl that said "thank you" earlier started be nasty.  "I'm pro choice" she hollered.  I said "you mean you're pro death or pro abortion", then I said "what choice did your son or daughter have"?  I hope that made her think.  It's not an 'it', he or she is a person who wants be born & not aborted. 
 
There were other people that were receptive today, which is good.  Suzanne did a pregnancy test & gave out some baby & children clothes from the Material Aid Room.  We gave away a beautiful white crib to one of our moms & she was so happy.
 
Martha & I ate early tonight for we had to pick up Christine to take her to Hilton to a second hand store to pick up some things for her new studio apartment that she just moved into.  She so happy now since she is out of the shelter & into her own place.  We glad to help her to get things for it.  It was a rainy 7 cold evening but all went well.  John came by later on to help us get all Christine's things in her apartment.  Thanks Martha & John.  A job well done & Christine was very happy to say the least.  She got so many nice things at the store. 
 

 
 
Wednesday, November 10, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
Martha, Carole & I were there on the front lines & at the center in the afternoon.  The rudeness of people still amaze me.  How do they live with themselves??  Only God knows.  I went in & out on the sidewalk but stayed mostly in the center doing work in there.  We gave a way lots of baby & children clothes to our needy moms for their many children.  I was glad that the three wonderful Elim Bible Students came at 4pm to help us get the Mass ready to celebrate at 6pm.  I kept them very busy setting up tables & chairs for the last Mass of the year.  Tucker came to the sidewalk to witness at 4pm & stayed until 6pm.  Thanks Tucker.  People started to come in around 5:45pm & Father arrived around the same time.  I asked if he had brought his Mass Kit & he said "no, he thought that we had a kit at the center, which we don't.  So we had an old church Mass with Monk's bread that we had in the refrig & I went over to the Ethiopian restaurant to get a glass of wine for the Mass.  It was a beautiful Mass & before Father started he heard my Confession & after the Mass he gave me the Sacrament of the Sick.  Thank you Fr. Joe & God bless you.  He was so nice to eat with my many friends who came to celebrate in the Holy Mass & afterwards with such great food.  Martha made her famous chili mmmm good.  We had pasta with sausage & many great deserts.  It was a wonderful evening.
 

Thursday, November 11, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

It was a busy afternoon & I was glad that Suzanne was in the See full size imagecenter counseling & helping out in the Material Aid Room.  I was in & out all afternoon & felt like I had abandoned Martha who was out on the front lines.  She understood though. 
 
I almost stayed in denial that the abortionist, Rachael Phelps wasn't killing any precious babies but I was wrong.  I had just come out onto the front lines when I saw a car drive out of the driveway & the woman passenger looked like death warmed over.  I knew that her baby was killed in Planned Parenthood without mercy & for money.  How evil! 
 
I got to speak to some of the girls & Suzanne had helped some See full size imagemoms receive some 'free' clothes for their children in the center.  We must stay positive for the moms who did 'chose life' for their children.  This is a very difficult ministry.  My heart aches all the time with the slaughter of the unborn & the destruction of their mothers.  Abortion effects everyone, even if you don't think so!!
 
Martha & I took our client & friend out for lunch on her See full size imagebirthday at Applebee's, on Sunday, to celebrate her 23rd. birthday.  Her baby is 13 weeks old, in the womb, now.  Praise God for her & her 'saved' baby from the RU 486 abortion pills!!
 

 
Tuesday, November 16, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
Martha called me at home to tell me that she'd wouldn't be at the 12:10 Mass downtown for she was going to have lunch with a friend & she had already went to Mass earlier this morning, so she said that she would see me at 1pm at the center.  I said "okay & thanks for letting me know this & I'll see you at 1.  After Mass downtown I went to the center & I noticed that Martha's car was parked on the street where she always parks the car, in front of Buckpitt, a business next to Planned Parenthood.  They do NOTHING!  I went into the center & said to her "why are you here so early Martha" for it was 12:40pm?  She said that she was seeing a client & would talk to me later.  I said "okay" & went about emptying out my car with bags of food for our lunch & supper.  Then all of a See full size imagesudden the man at the taxi company, which has an office in the building where we have the center, told me that a police officer was writing out a ticket out for Martha's car.  I rushed outside to my car & got my purse & walked over to the police car & said "officer I'm putting the money in the meter right now".  He said "no problem".  I put 4 quarters in the meter & thanked the officer & God for not giving Martha a $35 parking ticket.  Close call.  Later I told Martha & she thanked me.  I was happy that the taxi man had told me of the situation & that I had the quarters & the police officer was nice.  Thanks Lord!!
 
I went to the Material Aid Room to get the literature box & the graphic sign & went to my post on the front lines.  I was there for about 10 minutes by myself  when Carole came, I was so glad.  A few minutes later Donna arrived. 
 
 
Martha was in the Rose Room counseling our client who was with her friend, assisting with a pregnancy test.  The one girl is See full size imagea rape survivor & conceived in that rape & she bore a son who is 3 years old now.  Never did she think to abort this little child.  She is pregnant again from a consensual relationship & will not abort this little child either, even if the father wants her, she will not do it. We always speak about abstinence with our clients. no sex outside of marriage.  If this was abided to, the world would be a better & healthier place, to live in. 
 
Another young girl came into the Rose Room for a pregnancy test with her girlfriend & she was negative but cried when See full size imageMartha asked her if she had ever been pregnant before, for she had had an abortion in the past & was regretting it.  She started to cry.  Her girlfriend told her to stop crying & Martha told her that it was healing & that she needed to grieve for what she did.  Martha gave her the post abortion brochures to take with her, to get forgiveness from God & healing.  What's with her girlfriend??  Maybe she was post abortive too??

School bus driver stopped to talk to me.  There was no children See full size imageon the bus.  She told me that her niece had had an abortion at 6 months.  She told her that she would adopt the baby but she went ahead & did it.  She got pregnant soon after her abortion & kept the baby.  Lots of women try to get pregnant after their abortion due to the fact that feel such a loss.  I gave her post abortion information to give to her for forgiveness & healing & also a Truth packet & A DVD on Growth & Development & Maafa 21 & the 12 week old rubberized baby.  She gave me her name & I gave her mine.  She said "thank you' & off she went down the street.  This was a blessing for not to many buses have stopped, to talk to us, over the years.  I think only on 4 occasions, in the past 14 years, that we've been out there praying & protesting. 

It was raining & very windy.  It's always harder when we get aSee full size imagell wet & icky.  I need to get a good hat & waterproof gloves & put my boots on too.  I usually bring a change of clothes with me, on the days that I'm out on the front lines, just in case of a change of weather.  The signs blow away & one did & hit the Planned Parenthood sign that out in the front of their killing clinic.  It didn't break it for they just put up a new sign to advertise who they are.  Ick!!

Martha ripped her coat. I felt so badly for Martha for she just gSee full size imageot a new jacket & it was waterproof & had a hood on it too. Donna was putting her tables that she had let us use into her car when she pinched her finger.  Ouch!!  What pain she had.  It hurt so badly that she had to go in the Great Room for a few minutes to sit down on the sofa to recoup.  Carole brought a client home, that didn't have a ride for it was raining hard & Martha brought Sandy, who helps out in the center on Tuesdays, home too. 
 
We gave away lots of children's clothes & we were happy that most of the moms had cars, to bring the items home.  There were some very nasty people who drove by showing us their IQ (the bird).  If only they would stop to talk to us & get the help that they need from their abortions.  They're angry at us because we show them what they did in secret, which it never is.  "All that is done in darkness will be exposed to the light", the Bible says. 

A man & his wife or his girlfriend went into Planned Parenthood with a baby, it was so sad to see this scenario.  See full size imageThis bothers me so much to see someone bringing a baby or children into this cess pool where they murder little babies.  This is an evil place & no one should enter it's door that lead to no where.     

Carole, our prayer warrior who is out on the front lines twice a wSee full size imageeek, her little granddaughter Peyton is in stable though critical condition.  She is back on the respirator.  She has had many surgeries & the last surgery on her eyes took its toll on her.  She was born 1lb. 6ozs. about 4 months ago.  Please pray for her & for her family. 
 
The death escort, at Planned Parenthood, was butting in when I was talking to the people, that came over to us on the sidewalk, to speak to us & I told her to mind her own business.  Later on she left & walked down the street & she came back about an hour later & she took her cat to the vets across the street.  I guess cats are more important than the children, that are being slaughtered across the street at Planned Parenthood, where she was there helping them to be killed.  How confused can you be!!!!
 
A young man was sitting on the bench in front of Planned Parenthood & I invited him over to speak to us.  He laughed & See full size imagecame over to challenge us he thought.  He looked so typically to who we usually talk to. He had a smirk on his face & had a attitude that he was right & we were wrong.  He was very confused & I mean that with love.  The first thing that he said was "God is pro choice".  "What" I said.  What are you saying?  God is pro life & He condemns abortion. Then he said to me was "what religion are you"?  I said "I'm Catholic".  He then said "you need to give that up".  I replied back to him "I'll never give up the one true Church, never".  Then he said to me "I'm a Catholic too".  "What" I said "please come back to the Church".  He then went on to say that it's the right of the woman to have an abortion & that it was her body & if she gets pregnant after a rape she should have an abortion if she wanted one".  I told him that the Bible, which is the Word of God,  "Thou shall not murder".  He said that he knew someone who was raped & had tSee full size imagehe baby & killed herself because the baby reminded her of the rapist.  I said that I was sorry to hear this but abortion would still have been wrong.  Maybe she needed counseling & supervision & maybe could have placed her baby up for adoption & maybe she suffered from postpartum depression, which is common in all moms, not just those moms who were raped.  I told him of my sister who was raped & she gave birth to her daughter & didn't commit suicide.  I was so sad to hear this story but abortion would not have been the answer.  Women who have abortions have also committed suicide.  Donna spoke with him for a little while too.  He left because he wasn't getting to far with us, with his thinking.  He went back into Planned Parenthood. I didn't see him until hours later when he drove out of the parking lot with his girlfriend.  I hollered over to him to go to Confession for the Lord was waiting for him & then he could receive the true Body, Blood & Divinity of Jesus.  I also said "hope that you didn't have your baby killed here today".  Off he went & the girlfriend who was in the front seat hide her face.  God only knows what they did in there.  Lord have Mercy.  He was so mixed up & my heart sank. So many Catholics are so confused these days.  I will pray for them all to come back to the Church who loves them & will guide them to Heaven. 
 
After the young man went back into Planned Parenthood the two females, who were sitting on the bench with this young See full size imageman who we just spoke with, came over to us on the sidewalk.  I offered them help & asked if they were pregnant.  The girl to my right said that she was.  I felt sick for I new what was coming next.  I said "you're not thinking of having an abortion"?  "Oh yes I am" she replied.  I had a feeling she was going to say this.  Then the other woman said "I'm her mother & I don't want to raise a child".  Lord have Mercy in what I'm hearing.  Then Donna started to talk to them & I went over to the literature box to get the 12 week old rubberized baby to give to them & also the DVD on Growth & Development & Maafa 21: Black Genocide in the 21st. Century, which the mother took.  We spoke to them for a few more minutes & then the mother said that she had to use the bathroom.  Donna offered her our center & she said that she was going back into Planned Parenthood to talk to them.  Why would you talk to people that are willing to kill children?  Then Donna said to them "please watch the DVD before you do anything".  The mother said "okay".  I had also mentioned to them that the baby's heart begins to beat at 18-21 days after conception.  Then the young girl looked at the rubberized baby & said that she thought that the baby gets hands & feet at 2 months.  No I said that comes earlier that 2 months.  Prayer & education are the keys.  They went back into Planned Parenthood & I only hope & pray that the mother took the daughter home to watch the DVD & not have had her grandchild killed today.   



 Wednesday, November 17, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood 

It was another rainy, dark, cold, windy day on the front lines.  See full size imageWe get though it through God's help.  I had a hood on today.  The signs blow away & we have to bend down all the time to pick them up which is fine.  We want to witness to everyone who walks by & drives by & goes into Planned Parenthood.  We want to be used by God to save lives. 

I was in the center & when I came back outside Martha & Carole told me about a white man pulling a black girl into Planned Parenthood. Martha told him to stop.  I used the mega phone to call out to her to tell her that we can help her & if she comes out to us we will protect her.  We will even call the police if she wanted us to.  She never came out but he did. He See full size imagecame over to the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood, to smoke.  I call over to him & gave him a piece of my mind, I didn't use bad words or swear, but I spoke to him with sternness of what he did to her.  After he finished his smoke he turned around & looked at me with his beady eyes & walked back into Planned Parenthood.  I never saw him or her come out & either did Tucker, for he comes on the front lines from 4-6pm.  Maybe someone came & picked them up.  Poor baby!!  I hope & pray that she can get away from that man.

A volunteer from the Women's Care Center Pregnancy Center, See full size imagein Charlotte, came & got 5 pregnancy tests for their center. Their order won't come in until Monday & they don't want to be without, I can't blame them. They bless us when we need baby clothes for our material aid room.  It's nice that the pregnancy centers can help each other.  We are a 'team'. 

Mary, from the St. John's Religious Shop in Spencerport, 
See full size imagedropped off the pamphlets of 'How to Say the Rosary'.  We  put the pamphlets in an individual bag with the rosary.  Our friend Bob George, made for our ministry, 150 rosaries for our 'hand out' ministry, for the people on the street & to put in the Truth packets, to teach people how to say the rosary, so they can get closer to God through Mother Mary.  Thanks Bob.  :)

Christine , our client & friend, called & said that she was going to stop by the center after she went to RG&E to turn on her gas.  The weather was so bad that she took the bus home.  Don't blame her.

Martha gave a pregnancy test to a young girl that was going to PP but came to our center with her girlfriend & her boyfriend.  Martha brought them into the Rose Room & the girl was sitting on her boyfriend's lap & Martha said to her "here's a chair", pointing to an empty chair in the room.  She got up & went over & sat down on it.  The girl said that she heard us outside See full size imageof Planned Parenthood, a couple of weeks ago, when her friend was at Planed Parenthood having an abortion but she wanted to support her friend, so she didn't come out.  Gage!!  So they are now BOTH post abortive.  It will effect them for the rest of their lives.  Lord have Mercy!

A young woman came from behind the bushes & told me that she didn't believe in abortion & wanted to know where to go for exams.  I gave her our Truth packet & the doctors list.  She See full size imagethanked me & said that if she was pregnant she wouldn't do that to her baby, pointing to our graphic sign. She told us to keep up the great work that we are doing.  Don't worry, we will.  I told her that she was a good woman, one with a heart.  She smiled & walked away.

An older Africian American woman came into the parking lot & See full size imagestopped her car & said that she didn't believe in abortion & that she was picking up he granddaughter for she was there for birth control. We told her about the effects of birth control & gave her a Truth packet, with lots of information in it & a teaching DVD to educate her & her family.  She said "thank you" & drove in to pick up her granddaughter. 

A nasty guy drove by me, on the sidewalk, showing me his IQ (the bird) & I told him to repent.  Where are the real men???

A guy, coming out of Planned Parenthood, walked across the street hollered over to me "got condoms".  I hollered back to him "got Jesus"?  "Please repent for you are on the wrong road, sex is not worth going to hell for", I said back to him.  How sad to think that you can do want you want to without consequences.   

Sheila, our new recruit on the front lines, was with us this afternoon for an hour & she gave away a Truth packet & even went across the street to give one away to a woman, who just had come out of Planned Parenthood.  She even spent some time talking with her.  She's being Pro Active!!!  Yeah! 
 
A white car has been there at Planned Parenthood parking in tSee full size imagehe abortionist parking spot. Perhaps a  new abortionist???  Or a new car of the current abortionist Rachael Phelps.  Where do these people come from & what makes them tick?  How did they get so sick in the head??  Lord we pray for their conversions.

A car stopped with 3 women in it.  The mother who was the driver asked for a packet with a rosary in it.  I gave her a Truth packet & then the one daughter asked for one then the other daughter asked for one.  They all received a Truth packet.  I said to the mom that she was a good mom in educating her daughter & that she was a breath of fresh air & I thanked her for doing the right thing.  She smiled & they drove off. 

I had to go into the center for a few minutes & Martha was already there doing a pregnancy test so I gave on of the signs to Carole & left to go to the center to put on another sweater for it was cold & windy out there today.  When I returned Carole told me that our sign blew away & hit the PP
sign which is right in front of their building.  It didn't break but if it did it wasn't our fault.

Paula came to help out at the center with 6 of her 7 children.  She & her husband has 3 biological children & 4 adopted children.  She & her older daughter Hannah are a blessing to us.  The both organized the office & made up Truth packets. I kept them very busy. What a blessing they are.
 
A client of ours came in to get some things for her baby girl, she's ready to deliver in a few weeks.  She got some nice things & Paula will try to get her a double stroller for this baby & her 2 year old son.  She is still at the shelter but will move into her new apartment on Friday.  It was good seeing her & we will continue to assist her.

Tucker came in to get his favorite sign of the 3 babies, to go outside to witness, on the front lines. 

Valerie, our client, called & then came into the material aid room, to get some things for her family, she's expecting twins next year.  She lost her job & needs a new apartment for her family.  We gave her many nice things & Martha drove her home.

The 3 Elim Students came in at 4pm & worked doing lots of tSee full size imagehings at the center.  They said that they were thankful that God had brought them to Focus & so am I.  They folded brochures & made up signs & more Truth packets.   They helped our clients in the material aid room too, which they like to do. What a blessing they are to me.  Thank you Lord :)

Martha & I had a fast supper of thin pork chops with spaghetti & a side dish of peas.  No desert tonight & then we raced over to St. Thomas More Church to attend the Charismatic Mass at 7:30pm.  What a blessing it was.

Four men were out in front of Planned Parenthood doing work on their property.  I spoke to them & I was very upset when I did.  They saw the graphic pictures & one turned his head away & the other did give me a thumbs up but their boss who is in bed with Planned Parenthood needs to be contacted about receiving Blood Money from Planned Parenthood who murders little babies in Cold Blood for $$$.  Make your voice heard by contacting them & asking them to stop doing work at Planned Parenthood now!!  Thank you & God bless.

Great news that I want to share with you.  Suzanne, our counselor on Thursdays, calls our clients to see how they are doing & if they need anything.  Well today she found out that 2 more precious babies, that were saved from abortion, were born. The first baby was born on 11-5-10 & her name is Innocent a little girl 4lb. 11oz. mother & baby are doing well for she came a little early.  Second baby girl Anyiah was born on 11-10-10 weighing 6lbs. 11oz.  Mother & baby are also doing well. Mom needs a bassinet.  We always need baby girl & boy clothes for our moms for their children.  Thank you for all that you do for Focus in prayer & support.  We have two more babies that are are due in December & more in January to April 2011, Praise God. I'll let you know when they are born :) 


 
Tuesday, November 23, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
Carole had called me at home to tell me that she & her husband was sick with the flu & couldn't make it today.  Sorry to hear this Carole ... we wish you & your hubby well soon.  I hurried to the center after Mass, always in a hurry.  My car was full See full size imagewith boxes of children's clothes, a baby walker & a large microwave that Maria gave me to give to who needs it the most.  It turned out to be one of the taxi drivers, for his wife's friend who just had a baby & her husband is serving in another country, so she's alone without much.  We at Focus gave her some blankets for her baby girl, a bassinet & a baby swing but she needs more things, we're working on it.  So many of our clients need so much I wish that I could service them more quickly.  I do appreciate all the wonderful people that the Lord brings to us that blesses us with pac'n plays, baby & children clothes, walkers, car seats, strollers etc..  We couldn't run our pregnancy center without them :)   Sandy, who helps us out on Tuesdays had just arrived to help get the boxes out of the car.  Martha was making coffee, for she was tired & needed a boost before going out to the front lines.  Donna was already out there praying & holding her sign which read 'CHOOSE LIFE...THERE'S HOPE'.  John was with us today but I wanted him to stay in the center to do some office work, like writing thank you letters to the churches that have recently blessed us with a large tithing contribution for the work of the Focus Center.  Also to make a sign for the outside that tells people driving by that we have 'free' baby & children's clothes.  He did some other creative projects too.  He did help to bring some signs out to the sidewalk but just a few for it was sooo windy today.  Martha was now out on the sidewalk, & I always feel bSee full size imageetter when she is, for she calls out to the girls & talks to them using the megaphone.  They need to hear the Truth in order for their hearts to be touched & to turn away from Planned Parenthood.  We offer them options like good doctors & good people that can help them in their situation.  We hand out the Truth packet, where they get a great amount of information, by the brochures that we have in the bag & phone numbers too.  I always feel good when they take that packet. 
 
After all the instructions that I gave John, whom I'm very grateful for, I went out with a sign to the sidewalk to join the team.  Mary S. had arrived & then the lady with the white dog.  Don't get me wrong I'm not blaming the dog.  This lady  drove into Planned Parenthood with it looked like her older daughter in her late twenties or early thirties.  She stopped the car to say to us to "get a life".  "Oh yea", I said "we're trying to save tSee full size imagehe lives of these children that Planned Parenthood kills".  Off she went into the parking lot to park her car & let her daughter out.  Then she came out of the car with her white poodle on a leach.  "I called over to her to tell her that children are more important than dogs, & if she cared about animals then why can't she care about people too?  Here she comes walking over to the fence, where we stand to call out to the people, when they get out of their cars.  I always feel like See full size imageI'm in jail, when they walk over to speak to us, at the fence.  Some come around the bushes to talk to us face to face, which is better for communication, though more dangerous for us.   She rattled on & on & was saying nothing.  Her poor dog probably thought she was crazy & was embraced to be with her.  See I told you that I wasn't blaming the dog.  I asked Martha to take over & again this poor lady ranted & raved about, well we don't know???  She went back to her car & stayed there until she took her dog for another walk about 20 See full size imageminutes later.  The third walk, for the person that she dropped off was still in there, for what I don't know.  This time I was alone, it was about 4pm & Martha was in the center doing a pregnancy test & everyone else had gone.  She turned the corner where the bushes are & there she met me face to face.  I really don't think that she though that we were still out there & she wanted a longer walk for her dog.  Surprise!!  She snarled, not the dog but her, & quickly pointed at the graphic pictures of the aborted baby that was decapitated.  She said to me "you better be careful your condemning your soul, doing this" & she pointed to the graphic sign.  I said back to her "how can I be condemning my soul when I'm doing something good"?  "It's your soul I'm worried about".  Then I said "why are you not angry at the people in there that are doing this to the babies, pointing to the sign, but you're angry at us for showing you the truth"?  She snarled once again & walked away back to her car with her white poodle.  Only God will be able to get through her.  Martha was back outside with me now, it was about 4:20pm & the woman with the dog & her daughter were driving out of the Planned Parenthood parking lot.  The car stopped & the passenger rolled down the window & said "they do other things in there not just abortions, they give out birth control to teenagers".  "Really, birth control kills babies too, I said".  The mouth of the driver hung down & she started to mouth off again.  Didn't understand a single work she mumbled.  They drove off into the evening. They just didn't want to hear the Truth.  Lord please help these two women & bring them to your Truth.  Amen. 
 
See full size imageThe death escort with the very short hair was there doing her harm to those going into the abortion mill.  I went into the center to get a chair for Carmen, who is about 70 years old, who stands across the street holding the Our Lady of Guadeloupe sign.  As I was crossing the street the death escort was walking across the street to the other side too.  I met her across the street, it so happened.  I looked at her & my spirit cringed.  She had no affect, dead in the face with a cold fixed stare that only looked ahead.  I spoke to her with sternness but with kindness to what harm she is doing to the poor victims of Planned Parenthood.  No response ... "I see dead people"!  It's so sad being there on the front lines especially when people are non responsive.  We always said that we would rather have someone scream & holler at us, for they still have a conscious, rather than those who have no affect, for they probably lost theirs. 
 
A young woman drove by me for I was again all alone & threw See full size imagesomething out of the car window.  I holler to her "love you".  You can bet that she probably had had an abortion in the past.  A little while later I saw some birds gathering at the site where she threw something out of her window.  At least it was food for the birds & she missed me. 
 
Two young girls were walking down the sidewalk & came right over to me .  The one girl said to me "I think that I'm pregnant & I want a pregnancy test".  I looked over at Martha & asked her if she would bring the girls to Focus for the test.  She said "yes" & they followed her into the pregnancy center.  I was again now by myself.  About 10 minutes later two young people were walking up the sidewalk heading for Planned Parenthood.  A guy & a girl.  He was listening to music.  I told them that they kill babies in Planned Parenthood & that I could See full size imagehelp them.  I saw the girl smirk at the boyfriend, saying something.  Then all of a sudden a Mountain Dew bottle came flying over the bushes right at me.  You little snip, you could have hurt me.  They didn't care & it certainly showed their guilt.  I'm a sitting duck when I'm by myself, which I hope won't be to often. 
 
Martha was back & two girls were driving out of the parking lot of death & destruction.  The passenger appeared to look like  sSee full size imagehe was going to take the Truth packet that was being offered to her but she just had a sick smile on her young face & rolled down the window to throw her newly obtained condom at us.  One less for your boyfriend, who probably is using you anyhow, my dear! What the hey, they're 'free'.  How disrespectful to yourself.  You're not hurting us, oh maybe a little bit.  Our hearts do hurt when we see bad behavior. 
 
The wind was blowing the signs & us all over the place.  We went into the center around 5pm.  A couple of moms came in for children's clothes & some small items in the material aid See full size imageroom.  Around 6:15pm, Martha, John & I had a real nice supper together of chicken, potatoes & salad.  We all worked in the center for awhile until we left around 8:30pm.  It was a hard Tuesday for sure. 
 

 
Wednesday, November 24, 2010 in front Planned Parenthood

I got a call on my cell to ask when we were open.  I said that I See full size imagewas on my way from church downtown.  A middle aged Africian American man on a bike was waiting for me at the door to the center.  He got some diapers & clothes for his two children & a pair of pants for himself, his were torn & dirty.  He left very happy.

Sheila was standing with the sign Planned Parenthood Kills See full size imagebabies & 4 kids in the car stopped & hollered "kill the babies".  I was at the literature box & heard this & turned around to tell them to get away from us & to repent, as I walked towards the car.  Sicko's. 

See full size imageA young boy, on a bike, stopped again to talk to us & received another Rosary to give to a friend.  He again stopped by later on & asked me what religion was I said I was a Catholic.

A woman, with her baby went into Planned Parenthood, & I See full size imagewas upset to see this.  She said something nasty & I asked her not to come back or to bring her baby for this was an evil place.  She pressed down on her horn & sped away I asked her to drive carefully for baby & for her sake & that we cared.  I had a good talk with Martha about mothers bringing their babies into Planned Parenthood.
 
An African American woman who works at Planned Parenthood was coming around the bushes with a container filled with envelopes.  She was going to the mailbox down the street.  I was standing by Buckpitt the business next to Planned Parenthood talking to Sheila for she was leaving.  I had just come out of Focus & was walking on the sidewalk to get to the front lines when I stopped to talk to Sheila.  I saw the worker at PP walking towards us.  I was holding the graphic sign & as she passed I told her that this is what Rachael Phelps does to babies inside Planned Parenthood where she works.  She looked at the sign & continued to walk to the mailbox.  I said "good bye" to Sheila & went to join Martha who was praying.  After a few minutes I looked down the sidewalk to see that Sheila was walking & talking to the woman form Planned Parenthood.  Good for you dear Sheila!!  Then Sheila left the woman & she was walking alone passed Martha & I.  I again showed her the picture & she mumbled something.  I didn't know how to interrupt it for I wasn't sure if it was a cold response or not.  I again said something to her & then said that she was all messed up.  She was now walking passed the bushes & into the parking lot & then turned around & walked back towards me.  She approached me to say that she also works for the Baden Street Project & that she woks in the Administrative part of Planned Parenthood.  Then she landed See full size imageme a whopper & said that she was a 'Born Again' Christian.  I almost passed out or threw up.   I regained my composure & said to her that she really didn't know the Lord to be working in a place that killed His children & that she was really betraying Him & maybe didn't realize it.  She didn't say anything else & resumed her walk back to the killing center.  As she was still walking & said that we will pray for her & that there was still HOPE for her & she disappeared into the doors of the death mill.  My heart sank once more out there on the front lines of battle where you hear & see & know so many horrible & difficult scenarios.  It's ONLY through the grace of God that I'm out there at all to save lives & souls, through His power.  I am humbled by the experiences. 

David came & got the walker for his baby David Tobias.

Tucker came & went outside to pray & protest.  After Martha left I went outside to be with him & a car went into Planned Parenthood & all I said was that they kill babies in there & she went bonkers.  She screamed something at me & stayed in Planned Parenthood only a few minutes & came out screaming at me some more.  How sad. Another difficult day.  The hearts of men are growing colder & I must admit I was angry this last 2 days due to the apathy of killing children.
 
A guy, came around the bushes & said that he was going to donate $20 for each protester who was protesting in front of PP.  Martha & I told him that we were going to donate our See full size imageprayers for him to repent & have his soul saved.  He went over to his car & went in.  Maybe he already had donated for he was leaving now.  When he pulled out of the driveway & said "your mother, your mother" he put his hand to his ear & had an expression on his face as if to say "what are you going to say about my mother"?  I then finished the sentence by saying "your mother was pro life, can you stand it, she gave birth to you".  He drove out of the parking lot & onto the street & went far far away. 
 
I was by myself for Martha was in the center with someone & a car stopped across the street & a man got out & walked across the street towards me.  "Oh no", I thought to myself, not another nutty person.  He came over to me & looked at me & hSee full size imageanded me some papers & said "I have the answer, it'll be over soon".  Okay sir, thanks & you have a great day. I then looked at what he handed me to read, it said 'THE END OF THE WORLD WILL ON MAY 21, 2011'. IT was a Jehovah Witness newsletter.  Here we go again!  At least he was nice. 
  
Malaysia stopped with her baby & her grandmother to get some See full size imagediapers & wipes & some other nice things.  We were busy putting clothes away. Martha had to go early so no supper tonight. 

Carole was still sick today but will come back next Tuesday & Wednesday. Yeah!
 
See full size imageHave a wonderful Thanksgivng Day tomorrow!!!
We all have so much to thank God for!!  Enjoy your turkey day with family &/or friends or just being alone. 



 Tuesday, November 30, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

I was called by a young lady that wanted a pregnancy test for she had taken one at home & it was positive & she needed a note for her doctor.  I told her to come in today from 1-6pm.  She came at 1:30pm with her mother.  I repeated the test & it was positive so I wrote a note to her doctor stating this, so she could make an appointment at the General Hospital.  I gave her & her mother lots of information & we had a good talk.  Our newest client wants to come back to volunteer, in the Material Aid Room, which I said "yes", so we made it for this Thursday afternoon. Hope to see her then. 

Martha called earlier to tell me that after Mass today she would have to go pick up her friend from work & take her home, for her car had broken down.  She left right after noon Mass & got to the center around 1:45pm.  I was happy to see her back.  I had to go to a new moms home to bring her some diapers, baby wipes & some newborn baby clothes, for her new son.  She lives on Norton St., so it wasn't to far away.  I ate my sandwich during the red lights. Sandy had come to help out & I put her to work as soon as she got at the center, around 1pm.  She put things away & made Truth packets.  Great helper!! 
 
View Full Size ImageDonna, Carole, Martha & Ryan, the father & his son Ryan Jr. were also on the front lines.  It was so windy out there today that the sign that Carole was holding flung in the air & hit Donna right on the thumb.  It begun to swell up so she came into the center to put ice on it for 20 minutes & to recover.  She was upset by a comment that one of the pro lifers had made earlier but they both worked out their differences which is always good.  We are all under attack by the Evil One out there but God is in control & works it all out for good. 
Cleveland, our street friend, came walking down the street with his coat wide open, he looked to cold to describe.  He asked for food which we gave to him & told him to zip up his jacket to stay warm.  He's like a little kid. 
 
I was in & out of the center but know I was outside & it was raining, which I dislike the most.  To get wet with you all your clothes on is icky but we're out there anyhow for the Lord & for the mothers & their babies.  When I arrived where the team
were standing there was two gentlemen talking to them.  It was strange because we get people to stop to talk to us all the time but what was strange was that they had a camera with a long wire & a mouth piece attached to it.   I found out that it was Rick Castellano, who has a show on Channel 18 from 1to 1:30AM & his cameraman.  Check out:
http://rickcastellano.com/index.php.  They wanted to do a interview in the rain for their show.  They are pro life & hate abortion too.  First they interviewed Ryan & then Martha.  I went on to just give our days & times that we are out there on the sidewalk & in the center & what we do there.  Rick told the cameraman that he was going to give Focus a donation & handed me a $100 bill, to which my mouth hung open & I said "thanks Rick".  Then he took pictures of all of us on the sidewalk with the pictures.  There was Martha, Carole, Ryan & Ryan & myself, Donna had left earlier.  So we'll see if we get on the air on his show.  They said "good bye" & walked to finish the segment under the Planned Parenthood sign to which the Death Escort, Barry Swan came out & chased them off of the property.  I wonder if Barry will get on TV too!!  They settled in on the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood to finish the Rochester story.  They got into their van & then comes out Barry Swan & Eric, the supervisor,at Planned Parenthood.  They just stood there looking up the street like two bumps on the log.  You Tattle Tattler, Barry Swan you!  Off, the white van goes onto the street, & the two wet heads went back into the death mill, Planned Parenthood.  Us pro lifers talked about what happened for a short time afterwards but we needed to get focused once again to try to witness & help people at our little corner of the world. 
 
Martha went in to help a young woman to get some baby clothes for her infant & some other nice things too.  She also gave a couple of pregnancy tests & they were both negative, to which she spoke about abstinence to the girls.  They were receptive & listened & were grateful that somebody cared about them. 
 
I had made meatloaf with mashed potatoes & a salad.  Martha, I & Dan, for he stopped by to say hello & to have supper with us, had a nice dinner together.  I put him to work, in the center, after I fed him first.  Aren't I nice  :)  We had a busy day at Focus in & out on the street.  Onto tomorrow!!
 

 
Wednesday, December 1, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

Earlier this morning, I got a call from my landlord, asking for me to come to the center earlier to open up the rooms for the workers to put in the new lights.  I told him that I would get there around 11:45am to open up the doors, he said that would be fine.  So I did.  I met Cory, who was one of the workers, it's his father's business.  He & his partner were so nice.  They told me that there was a real problem with the roof & it's leaking.  I told him that I already knew this & what a mess it can be. I told them that the landlord can't afford to fix the roof because it would cost him so much money, so we just have to deal with the leaks as they come.  He looked like he felt for our situation.  Some blessed girl will get a great husband in Cory.  The new lights that they put in are brighter & more energy efficient, so this will save our landlord some money, maybe for the new roof in 10 years!!!  
 
Paula & her daughter Hannah & her four other children, were planning to come to the center to help out, after the noon Mass downtown.  We were just blessed with two high chairs & Paula put the twins, who she adopted from Ethiopia when there were 6 months old, into the chairs for their lunch.  The other two kids joined them at the table while the other son was studying in the Great Room & Paula & Hannah helped me in the office.  The weather was getting bad, for the rain was now coning down as wet snow, the start of winter.  Carole said yesterday that if the weather was going to be bad then she wasn't going to come, which she didn't. :(  So it was Martha & I out on the front lines today.  I got a call on my cell phone & it was one of the pregnancy centers telling me that one of their clients had told them that she was planning to go for an abortion at Planned Parenthood tomorrow, Thursday, which is the day that they kill babies all day there.  She asked me to keep my eyes open for a tall young girl with dark hair & she would be the passenger, for she doesn't drive.  I told her that I would go out there early tomorrow.  I told her that we, sidewalk counselors, call out to all the people driving into the parking lot & offer them help.  She was grateful to hear this.  We hung up & I decided to go out there early tomorrow for her & for all the moms that were about to have their child be murdered, by the abortionist Rachael Phelps, at Planned Parenthood.  What a horrible place to be at but so necessay to be there to 'save' & 'change' lives, through the grace of God. 
 

 
Thursday,  December 2, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
You just can't imagine the feeling it is to get up & get dressed & go to a place where they are killing people, one right after another, & you can't do a thing about it, you just are there.  Yes, you're calling out & offering them help & begging them not to do this to their precious baby & themselves but most of them don't listen & go right into Planned Parenthood & do the ghastly deed against humanity.  You pray & call out & wait & hope that they heard your message of life & changed their minds & come out & go home with their baby still in her womb.  But that's not usually the case most, if not all, have their baby killed by Rachael Phelps, on Thursdays at Planned Parenthood.  I arrived by myself on the front lines at 8:45am & brought out one graphic sign & the literature box & the mega phone.  I called out to the people going into this place of death & destruction but no one responded. 
 
I called out to a young girl going in & when she came back out & I called her over to speak to me, which she did.  I told her that we gave out 'free' pregnancy tests at Focus right next to this yellow building & I pointed to the building.  I then gave her a Truth packet & a rubberized 12 week old baby in the plastic bag with the growth & development chart.  She said that PP wouldn't do a pregnancy test today. She said that she was going to come to Focus today after school at 3:30pm for a test but that she was 16 years old & she's not ready for a baby, if she is pregnant. Funny she's ready for sex but not for a baby, which the two go hand in hand, remember that's how we all got here.  I said that the baby is ready for you & abortion is the "taking of a life & only God can give life & take life".  I could tell that she really didn't want to hear that part of my message to her.  What's wrong with females that they are killing their young???  There's nothing's wrong now -a -days, there's no talk about right or wrong or SIN, it's just what will make you happy or solve your problems, which abortion doesn't at all but it creates problems that you will wish you never had.  That's the lie & deception of abortion & Planned Parenthood, who sells you the abortion & you buy the worst lie imaginable.  She left & she didn't keep her appointment at 3:30 that day for the pregnancy test.  I only hope & pray that's she's not pregnant & that the Truth packet will speak to her too.  Poor girl!
 
Then a young woman walked by me to go into Planned Parenthood.  I called to her to let her know what they do in there.  She came out about 10 minutes later & I talked to her again.  I asked if she had any children & she said that she did so I invited her to come to Focus & shop for 'free' in the Material Aid Room.  Just then Pat & Bill came to pray so I left them on the sidewalk to pray & her & I went into the center to get her children something's.  She said that she was here to get her records for General for she's going over there now.  I said "great" & lead her into the room, she was impressed.  About 5 minutes later one of our regular clients came in with her baby & her sister.  Her son was 8 months old today... Happy Birthday, little one!!  I told her that she caught me by chance because I'm not usually there on Thursday mornings but in the afternoons.  "Why didn't you call me first" I asked.  She said that her phone bill was $600 & has to use now the dollar a day plan.  No phone no communication.  She was glad that I was there & that she could get more diapers & wipes & clothes for little Leko, who was asleep. 
 
After the moms left I went back outside to be on the front lines again by myself for Pat & Bill were now leaving after they prayed the Rosary & the Divine Mercy prayer.  I asked them if they could change from Tuesday mornings to Thursdays from 9:30 to 10:30am & they said that they would.  I want coverage all day on Thursdays when they're killing these precious children that God had just created.  Sheila will join them at that time & I will come around 11am & then Martha will come around 1pm to be with me for the afternoon.  Hope that this will workout to cover most of the day in prayer & protest & counseling.  Hope that more lives will be saved, by the grace of God this way.  I wish that there was more people that's for sure.  Where are you all???  We need you!!

It was now in the afternoon & Bill was settled across the street, sitting on his chair, with his sign of the precious aborted baby Malachi.  Just then by the corner of my eye I saw the Liberty Construction truck drive by Bill & her gave him the 'bird'.  This makes me angry, that he showed such disrespect to Bill & the aborted baby.  I saw that he had stopped his truck, down the street, so I walked down the street to confront him.  I approached him & asked him if he gave the gentleman who was holding the sign across the street from Planned Parenthood the 'bird'.  He appeared nervous at first then was nasty & combative.  He said that he had five fingers, oh really.  I said it was the middle finger & that's bad.  He said to me in a nasty tone of voice "you people make me sick", "they give out pills to". I said that the pills act as an abortificant & that kills babies earlier on.  He responded in an angry tone of voice that I was crazy.   I was in no mood for him, that's for sure.  I asked him if he had paid for an abortion & he replied with something that I can't repeat on my web site.  I said that I was going to report him & he said "go ahead, my name is Bob.  I said thank you & I just want you to know that you gave the 'bird' to a Korean War Vet, you crazy person.  Off I walked down to my post on the front lines.  When I got back I reached into the literature box to get a pen & paper & I walked back to the Liberty Construction truck & took down the license number & the number on the truck & put down the date & time of the incident.  (I did call on Friday & reported him & the secretary told me that she would pass my complaint onto the Supervisor) I feel strongly that when you are working for a company & are on their time & get paid by them you should keep your big mouth closed.  You represent the company that you work for, so be nice!! 
 
Mary S. has now just arrived for Martha hadn't arrived yet.  Just then a man drove by me & gave me the 'bird' & then he drove into Buckpitt, which is the business right next door to Planned Parenthood, they do nothing & have been a thorn in my side for as long as I can remember. We are in front of Buckpitt more than Planned Parenthood because of the Buffer Zone which places us more near them, which they hate.  What's this about the 'bird' today!!  When he got out of the car & I hollered over to him saying "did you just give me the bird"?  He just had a smirk on his face & walked into Buckpitt with his briefcase.  About 10 minutes later he came out & went into his red SUV & drove out of Buckpitt.  As he passed me I said to him "Lord have Mercy on you", just then he took both hands off of the wheel & made a crazy looking face to Bill.  I was so scared that he would run into him for he was sitting on the sidewalk so near the street.  As the SUV passed by I saw that Bill was alive & I hollered something to the crazy man.  He was nuts.  Oh thank you Lord that that man didn't lose control of his car & killed Bill.  He probably was involved in an abortion.  This is usually the case that drives these people to the extreme, out on the front lines.  How dangerous they are & how sad it is to see them that way too.  Later when the boss of Buckpitt was walking up the street with one of his employees & said to him that one of his sales people gave me the 'bird'.  The first thing that he said to me was "what did you say to him"?  Typical for this man of no brains or heart.  I answered back to him that he almost ran into Bill.  "Whose Bill", he asked.  I said the older man across the street, the Korean War Vet".  He said "then why don't you make out a report".  "Oh yea", I said, "I have no license number for the police, or description for them either," you jack wagon.  I didn't say 'jack wagon', I just thought it.  I walked away from this poor soul.  I said to Mary S. " imagine him saying to me "what did you say to him first, he's always blaming us pro lifers for everything".  She was upset with him too.  What a wimp of a man. 
 
Martha a has now just arrived.  She over slept, which is fine with me.  She was so tired & I do understand that, that's for sure.  Mary S. & Bill had to leave so it was Martha & I now out on the front lines.  I was so glad that Suzanne, our Thursday counselor had just arrives too.   I went into the center to talk to her for a few minutes giving her an update & then the doorbell rang & it was one of our clients that just had her baby about 4 months ago.  I greeted her with a hug & she told me that she needed our help once more.  Suzanne took her & her friend, who was 6 months pregnant, into the Rose Room to counsel them.  After that they went into the Material Aid Room to get some things for their babies.  I was so happy to see her.  Her phone was disconnected so I couldn't get a hold of her, which always frustrates me, but I just wait for my girls to come to the center when they can get there.  
 
I was now with Martha, on the front lines, & while I was away in the center she told me that she received many 'birds',  What's with people today??  Also that someone came into Buckpitt & said something nasty to her.  She said the Hail Mary prayer & he didn't say another word to her.  Thanks Mother Mary.  I looked over the fence & I saw a young girl just getting into the car with her boyfriend, who I had spoken to twice, as he smoked his cigarettes in front of Planned Parenthood.  I asked him to save his baby if his girlfriend was in there aborting this precious child, your son or daughter.  When I saw her I said to her "I hope that you didn't kill your baby".  She instantly gave me the 'bird' & said a few choice words, to which I didn't respond back to her, except to say "repent for the sin of murder".  As they drove out of the parking lot she saw Bill across the street with the graphic sign & she gave him the 'bird' too & they drove off up the street.  How do I comprehend this??  A mother & father, paying the serial killer, to kill their own child, at Planned Parenthood.  It's soooo difficult for me.   I just have to give it to God right away & then cry later & beat my breasts, for the pain is so intense.  Why is this happening??
 
As I was trying to settle down two men were walking up the sidewalk.  I offered them a Rosary & they said that they would like one.  So I gave them each a Rosary.  The one guy, with the long gray hair & the pierce earrings, said that he was once a Catholic & Martha told him to come on back to the Catholic Church.  She told him about Our Lady of Victory Church downtown on Pleasant St. & when the Confessions were for him to go & then he could go to Holy Communion after that.  I told him about what the peace sign represents which is an inverted cross, as an insult to the Lord.  "The crazy 60's",  I said to him, "it's time to move on".  He was nice & receptive to both Martha & I.  Then he told us then when he was 17 he & his girlfriend had sex & she became pregnant & had an abortion.  He said that he didn't want her to have one but she went ahead & did it.  It crushed him.  I think to this very day he's affected by the lose of his child.  I went into the center to get a couple of brochures that would hopefully help hi with phone number to call to talk to someone that could help ease his pain, he was grateful for the help & thanked both Martha & I for a 'new beginning.  We were happy to do it, that's for
Thursday,  December 2, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

You just can't imagine the feeling it is to get up & get dressed & go to a place where they are killing people, one right after another, & you can't do a thing about it, you just are there.  Yes, you're calling out & offering them help & begging them not to do this to their precious baby & themselves but most of them don't listen & go right into Planned Parenthood & do the ghastly deed against humanity.  You pray & call out & wait & hope that they heard your message of life & changed their minds & come out & go home with their baby still in her womb.  But that's not usually the case most, if not all, have their baby killed by Rachael Phelps, on Thursdays at Planned Parenthood.  I arrived by myself on the front lines at 8:45am & brought out one graphic sign & the literature box & the mega phone.  I called out to the people going into this place of death & destruction but no one responded.

 I called out to a young girl going in & when she came back out & I called her over to speak to me, which she did.  I told her that we gave out 'free' pregnancy tests at Focus right next to this yellow building & I pointed to the building.  I then gave her a Truth packet & a rubberized 12 week old baby in the plastic bag with the growth & development chart.  She said that PP wouldn't do a pregnancy test today. She said that she was going to come to Focus today after school at 3:30pm for a test but that she was 16 years old & she's not ready for a baby, if she is pregnant. Funny she's ready for sex but not for a baby, which the two go hand in hand, remember that's how we all got here.  I said that the baby is ready for you & abortion is the "taking of a life & only God can give life & take life".  I could tell that she really didn't want to hear that part of my message to her.  What's wrong with females that they are killing their young???  There's nothing's wrong now -a -days, there's no talk about right or wrong or SIN, it's just what will make you happy or solve your problems, which abortion doesn't at all but it creates problems that you will wish you never had.  That's the lie & deception of abortion & Planned Parenthood, who sells you the abortion & you buy the worst lie imaginable.  She left & she didn't keep her appointment at 3:30 that day for the pregnancy test.  I only hope & pray that's she's not pregnant & that the Truth packet will speak to her too.  Poor girl!

Then a young woman walked by me to go into Planned Parenthood.  I called to her to let her know what they do in there.  She came out about 10 minutes later & I talked to her again.  I asked if she had any children & she said that she did so I invited her to come to Focus & shop for 'free' in the
Material Aid Room.  Just then Pat & Bill came to pray so I left them on the sidewalk to pray & her & I went into the center to get her children something's.  She said that she was here to get her records for General for she's going over there now.  I said "great" & lead her into the room, she was impressed.  About 5 minutes later one of our regular clients came in with her baby & her sister.  Her son was 8 months old today... Happy Birthday, little one!!  I told her that she caught me by chance because I'm not usually there on Thursday mornings but in the afternoons.  "Why didn't you call me first" I asked.  She said that her phone bill was $600 & has to use now the dollar a day plan.  No phone no communication.  She was glad that I was there & that she could get more diapers & wipes & clothes for little Leko, who was asleep.

After the moms left I went back outside to be on the front lines again by myself for Pat & Bill were now leaving after they prayed the Rosary & the Divine Mercy prayer.  I asked them if they could change from Tuesday mornings to Thursdays form 9:30 to 10:30am & they said that they would.  I want coverage all day on Thursdays when they're killing these precious children that God had just created.  Sheila will join them at that time & I will come around 11am & then Martha will come around 1pm to be with me for the afternoon.  Hope that this will workout to cover most of the day in prayer & protest & counseling.  Hope that more lives will be saved, by the grace of God this way.  I wish that there was more people that's for sure.

 I looked over the fence & I saw a young girl just getting into the car with her boyfriend, who I had spoken to twice as he smoked his cigarettes, pleading with him to save his son or daughter if she was her for an abortion.  I said to her "I hope that you didn't kill your baby".  She gave me the 'bird' & said something else to me, I couldn't hear her, which was good.  I told her to "repent for the sin of murder", which abortion is.   I do care about their souls, for this sin could lead them straight to Hell, if this sin is not confessed to God, with a sincere heart of remorse.  All sin is forgiven by God when confessed with sincerity. This is a very serious sin called a Mortal Sin.  As they were coming out of the parking lot she saw Bill, who was across the street with a graphic sign, & she gave him the 'bird' too.  How very evil & how very sad to say the least.  How can I comprehend this evil against another human being??  I have to give it to God right away, to keep my sanity & then I cry & beat my chest later on, for it's so intense & heartbreaking for me to experience this, at the abortion mill.   
 
Two men came walking down the sidewalk.  I asked them if they would like a Rosary & they said "yes".  I went over to the literature box & took out two Rosaries & handed the men a Rosary & how to say it.  They were grateful.  Then the one man with the long hair said to Martha & I that he was once a Catholic.  We invited him back to the Church & told him that there was a Catholic Church downtown named Our Lady of Victory & when they had Confessions & the Mass times.  I went into the office & to get the booklet called 'Pillar of Fire', which answers some questions that people might have about the Church.  I came back & handed him the booklet & he smiled.  Then he mentioned that when he & his girlfriend was 17 years old she got pregnant & went for an abortion, behind his back, for he didn't want her to have an abortion but a baby.  He said that it was her father that put pressure on her to have the abortion & she gave in & had their precious baby be killed.  He was still grieving after all those years later, for he must have been in his fifties or early sixties.  He said that he was still a hippie at heart.  He was wearing the so called 'peace symbol' & I explained to him that it was really an inverted cross, as a mockery to Christ.  Darn those 60's!!!  He might consider to remove after he learned the truth about the peace symbol, lets hope so.  I told him that I had some brochures for him in the center that was geared to 'Forgotten Fathers' so I asked him & his friend to wait & I'd go back into the center to get him that information.  So off I go to get him some brochures that hopefully will help him to heal.  When I returned I mentioned to him to ask the dear Lord if he had a son or daughter, in Heaven & to name his child.  His eyes brightened.  I said that if you're not sure then name your child Paul or Paula, something like that.  He said, to Martha & I  "thank you so very much for your kindness".  "It was our pleasure" we both said " and have a great day too".  They both walked away, hopefully as new people, in the Lord that loves them.

Phone Number' category & found that two more of our moms have delivered.  Their numbers were working now & Leanne was able to talk to one of our moms who delivered baby boy Kamaray 7lbs. 6 ozs. on October 9th. & then she spoke with the sister, of our other mom, who delivered a while ago & has moved out of state.  She also spoke to another one of our moms, that she was able to reach, & she's doing fine & is due in February & she needs some baby items that Focus will provide. We are so happy to have received this great news & I want to pass it on to you!   Praise God!!  More to come soon for some of our moms are due this month.  I will keep you posted.  :)  Thanks again for your love, prayers & support.
 
 

  
 
Tuesday, December 7, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

Tim asked me, after the noon Mass today, if he could use the center to sort out about 10 bags filled with coats & things that were given to him by a Church.  It was a blessing for Focus because Martha & I got a real nice coat each.  Also, Pat & another one of our clients, pregnant with twins, came &
got so many nice things that we just received by generous donors. They went home very happy.  I told Martha that I was going to go to Foodlink today when Donna arrived so that she wouldn't be alone on the front lines.  In the meantime I called Fr.C & said that I would be coming to pick up the DVD's, that he made for our clients, later in the afternoon, if that was okay with him.  He said "sure, come when you can". He is such a blessing to Focus & to me. Thank you Lord for Fr.C.. 
 
It was snowing & cold & I hadn't been to Foodlink before but I had the address so off I went to pick up the diapers for the center.  I arrived Foodlink, what a building!  It spread about a block long.  Check out:http://foodlinkny.org/ for more information to what this wonderful organization does for the community.  I was greeted by Michelle, who I talked to on phone a couple of times & she lead me the floor in this big warehouse to where the huge box was that was filled with signal wrapped diapers sizes 3-5, just what we needed for our mom's children.  I took 6 banana boxes full, weighing over 50 lbs..  Yeah!!  Thank you Lord for such a blessing. I told Michelle about our food shelves at Focus, in our Material Aid Room, with non perishable items such as tuna fish, mac & cheese, peanut & jelly,cereal etc.. She gave me an application to take with me to fill out, for some food for our shelves, in the future. I thanked her for everything & told her I enjoyed the experience so very much & off I went to see F. C..  Earlier this afternoon Tim had given me a sandwich from Subway, so I stopped along the side of the road to gulp down some of the sandwich but I was also taking some bites while driving too, which is a 'no no'. My both hands should be on the wheel & I shouldn't be preoccupied with eating, while driving, that could be dangerous. I messed
up again.  Lord forgive me & help me to be better.  Amen. 
 
I arrived to see Father & to get the DVD's that he makes up for us, so that we can pass them out to the girls & guys, on the sidewalk & in the center for education purposes & to save a life.  When I got there, Father gave me the Sacrament of the Sick. The anointing of the sick is administered to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness, especially near the time of death. It is most likely one of the last sacraments one will receive. A sacrament is an outward sign established by Jesus Christ to confer inward grace. In more basic terms, it is a rite that is performed to convey God’s grace to the recipient, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Catholic Answers  http://www.catholic.com/library/Anointing_of_the_Sick.asp. And also gave me a plenary indulgence. "An indulgence is a remission before God of the temporal punishment due to sins whose guilt has already been forgiven, which the faithful Christian who is duly disposed gains under certain defined conditions through the Church’s help when, as a minister of redemption, she dispenses and applies with authority the treasury of the satisfactions won by Christ and the saints" (Indulgentiarum Doctrina 1). Catholic Answers http://www.catholic.com/library/Primer_on_Indulgences.asp.  I thanked Father C & got my DVD's & left with my soul fresh & renewed, by God's grace.  Praise God!!
 

 
Wednesday, December 8, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood.  Today is the feast day of the Immaculate Conception of Mary. http://www.wf-f.org/Immaculateconception.html
 
Martha & I were so busy in the center that we really didn't have a chance to get out to the front lines today.  The Elim students started their Christmas vacation this week so they weren't coming & Paula & family were going to church & had lots to do today so they weren't coming either.  Even Tucker didn't come tonight to protest in front of Planned Parenthood from 4-6pm.  The weather was getting worse & I hadn't gone to Mass today yet, Martha went earlier, for it was a Holy Day of Obligation, which means that if I miss Mass, through my own fault, it would be a Mortal Sin, which is Deadly & I could end up in Hell, for all Eternity, if not confessed, with an sincere heart.  I was planning to go to the Mass at Holy Spirit Church, in Webster at 7:30pm, & then to stay for an hour to be before the Blessed Sacrament, for the ending of abortion.  Martha & I ate a quick supper & off I went about 7pm.  The weather was getting really bad & I was praying all the way to church that I wouldn't slip or slide into anyone & no one would hit me either.  I finally arrived at church, safe & sound, thank God, before Mass started.  I sat in the back & a few minutes later I heard "hello Mary".  I turned to see Elaine, so I made room for her in the pew.  She was crying so I tried to comfort her before Mass.  Her mother is 95 years old with Alzheimer's disease & it's so hard at times for her.  She was looking better, after I gave her a big hug, & then the Mass started.  It was a beautiful Mass, of course.  We prayed for the end to abortion after Mass before the Blessed Sacrament.  Please check out: http://www.catholic-church.org/kuwait/eucharistic_adoration.htm
 

 Thursday, December 9, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

Thursday morning, Pat & Bill were outside of Planned Parenthood praying, from 9:30am to 10:40am.  The day that they do abortions all day there.  Sheila & I came  at 10:30am.  We were out there on the sidewalk for about an hour when a car pulled into Planned Parenthood & a young girl came out of the car & went in.  The car with the man & young girl in the front seat drove off.  It was less then 5 minutes later that the car came back & the young girl, that was dropped off, came out of Planned Parenthood & went back into the car.  As they pulled out of the parking lot we called them over to us & offered them a Truth packet.  The car stopped, where we were standing, & I started to talk to the girl in the back seat.  I gave her the packet of information, the rubberized baby of 12 weeks, the doctors list & the Focus brochure.  Sheila gave her the DVD of Growth & Development & the movie Bella.  I asked if she was pregnant & she said "yes".  I said that your son or daughter is glad that you left Planned Parenthood & she looked down & said "yes".  I told her about Focus & how to reach me & she said that she would like to come to the center soon.  I gave her the days & hours & told her to call me anytime.   I asked if that was her father & sister, in the front seat, & she said "yes".  I thanked them both & wished them all a very Merry Christmas.  They drove away, with her baby where he or she should be, in her womb.  Praise God for the team work of the pro lifers out there in front of Planned Parenthood.  This was Sheila's first Thursday morning, there on the front lines, & a baby was saved.  She & I were so excited, to say the least.  
 
Two of our babies were just born:
 
1.)  Little Jeremiah was born on 12-9-10 at 5lbs.10ozs.  Mother & baby are doing fine.
 
2.)  Baby boy Semai, was born in the ambulance on the way to the hospital, on 11-23-10 weighing in at 7lbs. 4ozs.  Mother & baby are doing fine.  Mom came into Focus & got some nice things in the Material Aid Room, for her son.
 
I want to especially thank Suzanne & Pat, our counselors, for calling our moms & keeping track of how they are doing & what they need, for their children. Also, I want to thank Martha, the Co-Director of Focus & our volunteer Sandy, who works so hard in the center, & to all who are out there on the front lines. God bless you ALL for your faithfulness, in ending abortion & helping people & saving & changing lives, through God's grace!  Thank you to all out benefactors for your love, prayers & support, & to the Sidewalk Ministry, on the front lines in front of Planned Parenthood.  This is a team effort & you all are a part of it!  God be the Glory!  So thank you again.  It was a very blessed year @ Focus in 2010!!

Thursday, August 12, 2010 in front of the Death Mill, Planned Parenthood

Talk about being traumatized that's what we experienced today.The shedding of innocent blood just kept on going.  It was a nightmare.  Martha, John & I
got to the front lines & then Carole joined us about 15 minutes later.  John
See full size imagebrought a white statue of the Blessed Mother & he brought it out to the front lines.  We always have the image of Our Lady of Guadeloupe, on a poster, out on the front lines.   I do try to be a Christian out on the front lines.  The emotional toil it takes to be in a place, three times a week every week, where they are slaughtering people & you can't do a darn thing about it.  We do pray & lives have been saved & we are grateful for that that's for sure but so many mothers are going into Planned Parenthood & letting the abortionist Rachael Phelps kill their precious babies.  You can't put the baby back together, once you realized what you did.  The hearts are very hard out there & it's  EVIL, to say the least.  It is the war zone & it stinks.

The first horror was when I was out there on the sidewalk I decided to go
over to the brick side of Planned Parenthood that we would have all three
sides covered.  Bill, our war veteran was across the street & Martha, Carole
& John were by the bush side so I decided to move to the other side.  I

See full size imagehought that I would have a good view but I was wrong.  The bushes that Ted Hosner planted does block most of the parking lot.  I really couldn't see the girls until they were in the foyer of Planned Parenthood.  I had the mega phone & was using it then I heard Martha calling out to the girls in her own voice.  I stopped using the mega phone & let her speak.  All of a sudden I heard a voice near me saying "shut the .... up".  I then used the mega phone & laid into her.  I said "watch your mouth, how dare you talk to this remarkable woman like that, you have no respect.  Would you talk to your own mother that way"?  "This is a killing mill where babies are being killed as we speak".   A few minutes later a young girl walked over to the three who were over on the bush side.  I then decided to go back over to where the rest of the team were.  I heard, the girl say something about "I'm here to say that I'm sorry for what I said".  I thought, that was good. Then I heard her say "my girlfriend is in there for an abortion".  What!!  I butted in & said "why aren't you in there trying to save this little baby & you will regret for ever driving & supporting your friend today in having an abortion".  "That's what you think", she said.  "No, that's the hard truth, I'm not sugar coating this, you are involved in a murder & it will effect you, for the rest of your life & your relationship with your friend."  As she was about to leave the sidewalk John had said something else to her & she turned around to give him the 'bird'.  I said to her "you just said that you wanted to rape him".  She looked perplexed.  I said "that's what the 'finger' jester really means".  She walked back into Planned Parenthood.  I was so angry that we couldn't get through to her. See full size imageIn the meantime a girl walked by Martha & she asked her if she wanted some children's clothes that were 'free' & she said that she did.  So off they go to the Focus Center to the Material Aid Room were Rose & Suzanne were.

I was standing in shock from what this girl told me when I saw that a Taxi
had dropped off a young girl & guy, on the sidewalk, by Planned Parenthood.
The death escort from Planned Parenthood, a old tart he is, came over to
them.  I decided to cross the street & go over to try to help them.  When I
See full size imagearrived with the Truth packet & the rubberized 12 week old plastic baby I said to her "do you want to see the baby".  They then walked into Planed Parenthood with the death escort.  My heart sank.  A few minutes later they came out & I was hopeful, only for a very short time.  They walked down the street & I called over to John to give them the packet.  He finally did as they were returning to Planned Parenthood & the guy took it & the girl took it from him & threw it down on the sidewalk near Planned Parenthood, we retrieved it.  We aren't going to have our packets thrown away & wasted, for the nastiness of the victim or the victimizer.  I was upset for I was hopeful when I saw that they walked out of Planned Parenthood but my heart was in turmoil when I saw them come back & not open for the truth. Ruined young lives.  It's a heartbreak.

I saw from a distance a young woman & a young child around 3 years old, with a guy walk down the sidewalk.  I asked Martha if she would ask her if she needed anything at the center.  She brought them in for some real nice
See full size image
things.  She told Martha that she was on the Depo Provera shot & hasn't had a period in 3 months & isn't pregnant.  Bad drug.....it also thins your bones too in making it very easy for a fracture to take place.  Many side effects & is also an abortificiant, which means that it takes the life of an already fertilized egg, which is a person.  No Bill O'Reilly, not a 'potential human being' but a real 'human being'.  Lets start to respect the person in the womb because we were all there at one time.

See full size imageSuzanne was in the center calling are clients seeing if they needed anything & how they are doing.  Great news we just go in finding out that we are parents again.  One of our clients had a baby boy Lou, a few weeks ago, & both are doing very well.  Praise God!!  Our new mom needs a pac n play & we will get one for her.  This is so cool :)

Carole's little granddaughter who was born at 1 lb. 8oz. was with us on the
See full size imagefront lines in a picture that was framed.  We put it by the statue of the Blessed Mother.  Here Carole is praying that her little granddaughter will survive as Rachael Phelps, the abortionist at Planned Parenthood, is in there killing these precious babies, that God has just created.  How shameful.

See full size imageRose was busy in the Material Aid Room servicing our clients.  The room is
such a blessing to us & our clients & their children.  They are so happy when they come in & shop for free.

A mother brought her 2 young daughters into Planned Parenthood & when they came out the mother told me that they were in there for birth control.  I
See full size imagewas upset & I said to the mother "you are making your daughters into Planned Parenthood sex objects & they are going to be used by the men they have sex with. They will suffer with low self esteem & even might get Sexually Transmitted Diseases & even get pregnant & will you then bring them back here to kill your grandchild".  I was angry.  These mothers are wimps & they are destroying their daughter's lives.

Carole had just left when the girl that was disrespectful to Martha & was here with her girlfriend who was having her baby be killed.  I called over to them & said "where is your baby".  I was holding Malachi, the aborted baby at 21 weeks when they came out.  She rolled down the window & say things that
See full size imagewere so vulgar & I will not repeat it here or anywhere else.  It was trashy talk.  She said yeah just show mw the signs & I'll get right in your face.  I then saw the death bracelet on her right arm.  I said "you have the death mark, you have the death mark".  She just kept on going on & on & the driver was getting onto the street so I took out my cell phone & I pretended to call the police.  They left quickly & that's what we wanted. We aren't going to be abused because that's what some of them do best. Sorry we are NOT your victims.  It did take Martha & I a little time to recover from this incident.  Their hell has just begun.  You can't kill an innocent baby & live a happy life.  THAT"S THE LIE THAT PP TELLS YOU IN ORDER FOR YOU TO HAVE AN ABORTION!  Don't buy their lie........ Please.

About 15 minutes later the two young kids that came in the Taxi walked out & I tried to talk to them as they walked up the sidewalk & she threw me the
'bird'.  They went into the alley way & about 5 minutes later they came out
See full size image
& got into a Taxi.  As the cab drove by us I held the graphic sign & also was holding the statue of the Blessed Mother, to which she showed her ignorance again.  They feel some what guilty, when we are out there, for what they have just done, and they get mad at us.  We pray for them & their terrible lives, that they will seek out God's forgiveness & their child's, for what they did.  Taking a life is never the answer to your problems. Post abortion will only add to your problems in a different  & more horrible way.

See full size imageLater on when the abortionist was leaving I said "were you busy making out the 'Death Certificates' of the babies that you just slaughtered here today?
As she was pulling out of the driveway, around 7pm, I said to her "your hysterectomy when you were 22 shouldn't have made you into a murder".  I had an hysterectomy, for endometriosis at 28, & I don't kill people.  What made her into an abortionist???  She was once a Pediatrician...

 


Tuesday, August 17, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

When we arrived after Mass the other team members went out to the front lines to set up.  I was left behind & when I was heading out the doorbell rang & I answered it.  There were two women & one young girl around 3 years old.  I asked if I could help them & the one woman who was obviously pregnant said to me " I need a letter from you to prove that I'm pregnant to give to the Department of Social Service Department".  "Come on in "I said".  See full size imageI needed to do a pregnancy test even though she is pregnant in order to say that I did a pregnancy test & it was positive. I then told her that we were not a Medical facility bit to go to the St. Mary's Clinic for them to writ a letter stating that you are pregnant & your due date".  Poor lady, her husband had beaten her up & she showed me her bruises & he's in jail now.  That's where he should be.  She has a high risk pregnancy & no money & no food.  The next thing I did for her was to call the local Food Link for her to get food for her daughter & herself.  Thank God she had an apartment.  I gave her a brochure & told her to call Fidelis Care for insurance  http://www.fideliscare.org/.  Her sister-in-law is with her & is willing to help her out as much as she can.  She & our clients daughter were in the Material Aid Room shopping.  What a sweet little girl.  Rose was making our usual sandwiches & I asked her to make a sandwich for out hungry client & her daughter & sister-in-law.   They enjoyed the chicken sandwich, tortilla chips, cranberry juice & chocolate chip cookies, that Rob had brought in for our supper, later on.  I gave her other brochures & encouraged her to go to St. Mary's clinic & to Food Link, which she knew where it was & to call the 1-800 # at Fidelis Care.  Also I need to comment that 211 was also a help to our client.  This number can give you numbers of different things that you request, like food or shelters, etc..  As she was leaving she stopped & turned to me saying that she had gone to many places to get assistance but they all turned her down until she came to us at Focus.  Praise God for this remarkable comment, it did touch my heart.  See full size imageWe are so glad to be able to assist our girls, to give them a better life.  This case is frustrating, I hope that I will see her again.  I told her not to give up because the Lord is with her & her daughter.   She said that she won't.  I was happy to hear this.  

As I was inside the center, with Sandi & Rose, taking care of our client & working in the Material Aid Room, the rest of the team, Martha, Mary S., Donna, Carole, Rob & John, were out on the front lines.  As I was about to join them the doorbell rang & it was Martha with our first of nine customers for the Material Aid Room today.  We even had our chocolate chip cookies devoured by our last two girls that had driven out Planned Parenthood.  I asked them if they needed any help & that we had a pregnancy center right next to this big yellow building.  They said "yes we want to come over to your place".  I asked Martha is she would assist them & she said "okay".  When she came back out about 15 minutes later she said that they didn't want aSee full size imagenything but just to look around & they spotted the chocolate chip cookies, that Rob had bought for our desert tonight, & devoured them in a matter of seconds, before Martha could do anything about it.  Either they were very hungry or just plan rude & aggressive.  Out the door that went, full as can be, with our desert.  That's not what we are all about girls, please come back when you really want our help, & please bring your own cookies next time.  We are not suckers.  We have a generous heart to help people in need. 
 
I brought a young girl into the Rose Room for a pregnancy test, which was negative & I did some teaching with her.  I told her that it might have been to early & for her to come back next week for a repeat test, if nothing had changed.  She was grateful.
 
Two young girls were walking up the street with their mother into Planned Parenthood covering their faces as they walked by us because of the graphic pictures.  They were in Planned Parenthood for a very short time & came out.  I asked then if they wanted a 'free' pregnancy test & to follow Martha for one.  They did & they were in the center t for about 10 minutes when I saw that one of the young girls was walking by herself down the street.  I though to myself that she was given the news that she was pregnant & was upset & left the center without the other 2 people.  Well the story goes was that she wasn't pregnant but didn't want to watch the Growth & Development video that Martha had put on.   Her mother & sister went into the Material Aid Room to get some things for a baby in the family.  Then they joined her outside.  I noticed that the two of them walked into Planned Parenthood & when they had come out the mother had called over to the daughter who was waiting for them down the street saying "I have some condoms for you"!  I went up to the mother & said "this is not the message that you want to give your daughter"!  Then she said that her daughter drinks to much & lets her guard down & the guys take advantage of her because she's good looking".  I said that she needs to stop drinking & to get her boundaries back.  It sounds like rape to me.  They get her drunk & have their way with her without See full size imageher consent.  Mom you have to do better for her sake & her sister's sake too.  The mom was heart sick & was crying.  I said just trust in the Lord & do the right thing & He will see you & your family through.  She said "yes I'm a believer & I will trust in the power of the Lord".  Glory be to God!!  There is hope here & healing & change for this mother & her two daughters. 
 
The Planned Parenthood Death Escort was reading a book in the sunshine waiting for her next victim to arrive to devour.  We try for that not to happen.  See full size imageWhen a car comes in we speak Truth to that person or persons, hoping the Truth will penetrate their souls & convict them, through the power of God, not to do the evil that they are planning to do.  Some, thank God, have turned around & went home or came into the Focus Center, to get the help that they needed, to keep their pregnancies going.  It's the most horrible place, on the face of the Earth, where they are massacring little babies, for $$$$.   
 
The Material Aid Room was buzzing today.  The word is getting out.  I was See full size imageback in the center for a few minutes when a mom came in asking for size 5 diapers for her 9 month old son.  We were almost all out of diapers & we don't usually carry size 5 anyhow.  She then said that she needed some money for her Security Deposit for her rent.  I told her that we were a small pregnancy center & we don't give out money for Security Deposits.  I gave her our Referral List & told her to call a couple of numbers to see if they could possibly help her.  It's been so sad lately, for so many women & girls are coming into our center, who are so needy & we are so eager to get See full size imageas many referral agency names & numbers that we can to give out to our clients for them to get the help that they need by the right agency.   My heart aches for our girls & their children & for their lives.  Making the wrong choices 'in life' can be devastating. 
 
See full size imageJohn was writing more messages, on the sidewalk, with sidewalk chalk.  We just found out that a girl was walking by & she saw the Pregnancy Help number 1/800-395-HELP & took it down & called it.  She was guided to go to the EmbracingOptions Pregnancy Center, http://www.embracingoptions.org/ 
to get a 'free' pregnancy test & was counseled & loved by the staff there.  They took good care of her & she was blessed.  A turn around due to the love & kindness, that she received from the staff, all because of a little chalk on the sidewalk.  It was a message of hope & change. 
 
We had a nice surprise visit from one of our clients & her baby boy who was born April 2nd of this year.  She brought her girlfriend in with her.  They spent some time in the Material Aid Room to get some real nice things for the baby.  See full size imageThen a nice girl was in the Material Aid Room & she said to me.  "Hello Miss Mary, do you remember me, my baby Michael is coming home tomorrow from the hospital, for he's been there for the last 6 months now, because he was born premature".  I said "yes I do remember you & I was trying to get a hold of you & your mother but the number wasn't a working number any longer".  "I had a crib for you but I couldn't reach you so I had to give it to someone else".  "Please come back next Thursday & I'll have a Pac in Play for you to take home for Michael & he can use it up to a year or more, it's better then a crib".  She said "that'll be great, I'll be back next Thursday to pick it up & thank you".  Off she went only for me to find out that when she had left our center she walked into Planned Parenthood.  She was in there for a long time & when she finally came out I approached her gently & said "they kill babies in there, you don't want to be in a place like that".  She said that it was for a check up.  Only God knows why she went into Planned Parenthood?  When I see her next Thursday I will talk to her some more & give her some literature to take with her along with the Pac in Play.  I worry about my girls.  They seem to think that Planned Parenthood is their friend but that is further from the Truth.  They destroy lives & we know it, that's for sure, from the stories that the girls come & tell us about.  I only wish that there would be a Class Action suit against them & they would 'CLOSE FOREVER", never to kill again or to ruin another girls life.
 
It was supper time!!  The table was set for Martha, Rob, John & myself.  I See full size imagebrought in a roasted chicken & roasted potatoes & Martha brought in a green salad & Rob brought in chocolate chip cookies, oh I almost forgot that were no more.....  We had a feast & great conversation & we reviewed over the afternoon's events.  We had just finished when all of a sudden there were a young couple walking into the All Purpose Room where we were having supper.  We looked surprised because we didn't hear the doorbell ring, but See full size imagefigured that the door was left a jar & anyone could come on in.  We were glad that it was this nice couple.  They were walking down the sidewalk when they saw our sing there on the sidewalk stating 'Free Children's Clothes' with See full size imageany arrow pointing to our center.  She was pregnant, due around Christmas time, so they thought that they would come on in.  We were happy that they did.  The mom went into the Material did Room to pick out many nice things for her son & the father of the baby went into the All Purpose Room to talk to the guys.  Rob asked him if he wanted any chicken & potatoes & he said "sure".  So Rob fixed him a plate.  He was delighted.  After the mom was finished shopping she was asked if she wanted anything to eat & she said "yes, please".  So Rob fixed her a plate of what was left over of the chicken & potatoes & salad.  They were very happy & grateful, to say the least.  They were blessed with love, food & clothes tonight.  It did our hearts well too.  God supplies all our needs when we need it.  Amen to that. 
 
See full size imageThey had left & it was time to clean up to get ready for the '40 Days for Life' meeting.  Rick wasn't going to be there tonight but he dropped off some fliers & brochures for me to hand out.  The doorbell started to ring.  We had a good turn out & a great meeting.  It's always good having pro life friends around.  See full size imageWe ended the meeting around 8pm & Martha, John & Rob left.  I immediately went on to the computer & emailed the gang to ask for diapers & formula & non perishable food for our food shelves.  SOS I said.  We were whiped out today, which is a good thing. 

 


 

 

The Story of Baby Douglas

  
Only God knows my real name…one He’s given just to me. He calls me “His Little Lamb.”I was conceived in January of 1936. I know my mother loved me. I lived and grew under her heart. I didn’t get to know my father. Did he ever touch Mommy’s belly and feel me move inside her?  I lived for four months in my little cocoon. Something happened. I stopped living. There must have been sadness that day.  I ended up in a Mason jar in a doctor’s office. I was the perfect specimen of a 4-month gestation baby. They say I was perfect in every way – even down to my tiny fingernails. Perfect, but not alive.  So many, many years I stayed with this doctor. He got old and sold his practice to a younger doctor. I came as part of the deal. When this second doctor, got old and died, his son sold the contents of his house to a very nice couple. They found me in the basement, way back in the cobwebs, up on a shelf. They were shocked and asked the son, “What is this?” The son said, “Oh that thing…I used to take it to school for show and tell.” The nice couple, Dennis and Mary Frances Westfall, were shocked and very touched to find me. They adopted me, and brought me home to look after me. They named me baby Douglas. When the new priest in town came to bless their home, they explained their unusual situation to him. They wanted very much to give me a proper burial. Fr. Joe Catanise said he’d be honored to do this and the funeral plans were set into motion. First, I needed to be visited by the Sheriff’s Department. They wanted to know all kinds of things about where I came from. And the Coroner’s Office was quite curious, as well. My adopted parents were reluctant to part with me, they had come to love me so much, but they entrusted me to Fr. Joe’s good care, and I stayed a short while with him at St. Leo Church. Then I traveled to the Burger Funeral Home in town where I stayed until the day of the funeral. Mr. Burger was very gentle with me.  Two very nice ladies from St. Leo’s who are in charge of Pledge for Life, Patty Buskey and Anna Summa, made all the arrangements for my funeral to be open to the public as a way of offering closure to those who lost a child to miscarriage or abortion. Anna got me a pretty blanket to be wrapped in. It’s very soft and cuddly. The day of my funeral, June 5, 2010, some 74 years after I was conceived, was very special to many people…and to me. Nobody that attended my funeral really knew me. But there were 116 people who came to say good-bye to me. To pray for me and for all babies lost to miscarriage or abortion.  Fr. Joe knew early on whom the perfect priest would be to give the homily at my funeral. Fr. Anthony Mugavero, from Holy Apostles Church in Rochester, came to speak on my behalf – to help all people who had lost someone to miscarriage or abortion, to help heal their wounds. Some never had the chance to remember their lost child in a Mass. So my funeral Mass was really also for all of them. It was called a Mass for the Unborn. Anna and Patty advertised my funeral and invited all those who had lost a child in this way. It was an opportunity for them to find closure. My funeral Mass began with pretty flowers at the altar, and I was in a simple, but beautiful little white casket. I was wrapped snugly in my soft little blanket. I was right up front. And there were two soldiers in fancy hats and capes and carrying swords, as a sort of honor guard for me. They were called Knights of Columbus. It made me feel very special. The music was so moving. The St. Leo Resurrection Choir sang beautifully and led everyone in the hymns chosen just for me. I waited so long for this. To think that the Music Director, Patty Gorman, who had lost a baby many years ago, played so lovingly for me. It must have been very sad for her. She sounded like an angel.  Mr. Burger printed up prayer cards for me and he and Fr. Joe were of the same mind; they gave me my middle name – Leo. It’s perfect - Douglas Leo, as in St. Leo the Great, who was a very brave saint.  Fr. Mugavero spoke so beautifully about love, and that every child is a gift of God. How life is so precious, whether born or unborn. His words were so gentle and kind. He sang the words from a song by a singer named John Denver. “I want to live, I want to grow, I want to see, and I want to know, I want to share what I could give, I want to be, I want to live….” That says everything I would want to say. What could I have become if my life was allowed to develop?  But my coming to being, however short that time was, had a purpose - if for no other reason but to be found and be loved enough to be honored by this funeral. My existence was to help those, who have lost their dear babies, to have closure. I’m proud of that. The folks from Burger Funeral Home found a perfect place for me to rest in the Parma Union Cemetery. The good people who are in charge of the cemetery donated my special place. It’s next to a little girl who was born one year after I was conceived. She lived for six days. I think we will be good friends. I overheard someone at my new home say this funeral helped her have closure for a child she lost. I’m happy for that. Every life, no matter how well lived, matters to our God. He never forgets His creations. He had a purpose for my life, as short as it was. If I have helped one person by my short existence, I have not lived in vain. God bless all the babies. And thank you.

 I’m at peace.  Baby Douglas Leo 

Those of us who attended Douglas Leo’s funeral Mass want him to have a proper headstone. If you have been touched by this story of his little life and his very large impact on others, please consider contributing to his headstone. Donations would be gratefully accepted at St. Leo Church, PO Box 725, 167 Lake Avenue, Hilton NY 14468.  Thank you, Betty Murphy.

Wednesday, August 18, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

It was Martha, Carole, Maria, John & I, out on the front lines, this afternoon, Tucker comes at 4pm & Rose was in the center.  The first thing that happened was that we got a delivery.  A mother, we had helped out at one time, was returning the favor & had brought us 2 used car seats, which we See full size imagecan use for it is a blessing because we have had to throw away so many cars seats, in the past. Even though they look fine if they are out of date, according to the bottom of the seat, we can't give them away.  It can only be used for 6 years after the date purchased.  What a bummer in some cases but we take no chances & throw out the old & pray for some new ones to come in to give to our mothers, for their children, to be safe in a car.  We have them sign a Liability Form, to protect the Focus Pregnancy Help Center.  We were so grateful to her for her kindness to the center & to our clients in need.  God bless her & her sweet child who she brought with her, he was sooo cute.  Just then the doorbell rings & it was Jim with a whole bunch of baby clothes & diapers & formula.  Thanks so much Jim.  He even said to me that if we ever run out to call him & he will buy some diapers & formula ASAP .  Thanks Bill!  What a team of dedicated pro lifers.  Later on in the day I got a phone call from Michael saying that he was headed over to give us bags of diapers & baby wipes & formula.  God is good.  God does supply our needs so quickly through such great people.  Mike came about an hour later with bags of supplies that I requested the day before that he had gotten at Wegnams.  They have a $5 off coupon, on their diapers, which are $5.99 so you end up paying $.99 for the package of diapers, until September 24th..  What a fantastic deal.  I plan to go shopping tomorrow.

 I just found out that we will be blessed again with having the students from the Elim Bible Institute come again this year, during the school year, to work & pray & gain some experience at the Focus Center.  This is great news!! 
 
Martha brought some of the girls into the Material Aid Room to be assisted by Rose in getting some very nice things that we are blessed with.  Thank you all who contribute to the Material Aid Room, in making it be filled with so many nice things for all to receive.  God bless you!! 
 

I was now standing out on the front lines when a woman, from across the See full size imagestreet walking her dog, lit at me light a match.  She started to See full size imagescream at me saying "you're not saving anyone doing what you're doing showing those pictures".  "Oh yes we have, though the grace of God, as of now we aware of 40 babies saved from being killed by abortion & why aren't you mad at Planned Parenthood that is doing the killing"?  "We're trying to save lives".  I asked her if she had an abortion in the past.  So many post abortive woman are so angry & they lash out at us all the time especially driving by.  She just walked in a huff to her car in the vets parking lot. 

See full size imageTwo police officers, on bikes, were on the corner, talking & waiting until this altercation with this woman was over.  Thanks guys!  

 


 

Thursday & Sunday, August 19th. & 22nd., 2010 

It was Martha, Bill, John & I out on the front lines today & Rose & Deanna in the center.  Suzanne was out of the office today with another commitment so Deanna was there today working in the office, calling our pregnant clients to see how they were doing & to see if they needed anything that we could help them with.  She had just a few girls &all were well with them & then she called our another client & out came 'the can of worms'.  She needed food for See full size imageherself & her 2 year old daughter.  Well this was not an easy task but informative, to say the least.  We called some the Food Pantries & found out that most of them need referrals & several ID's, for proof of person, etc..  Wow!  She thought that she would have enough food for the weekend & after that her Food Stamps would kick in.  We don't want to make our clients dependent on us, we want them to learn to be self sufficient, so we act as a intermittent care facility, for just a short time before they can get assistance for a longer time.  We are a there for them in a pinch, I should say.  We learned about the system with this one call to our client.   Deanna made out a Referral Sheet to have on hand for clients that come in & need to go to a Food Pantry so she will have it in her hands to give to them, without any problems to quick & ready service.  We want the best for our clients who we hold in our hearts & prayers.

I went back outside to be with the team only to see that the Death Escort was ready for her next victim to devour.  Not on my watch dearie.  I read Planned Parenthood's newsletter called, 'Informed Choice'. You hypocrites!  Your only choice is death, you make no money when lives are saved.  You've pushed us pro lifers 80 feet away from the Planned Parenthood's door so that the people going in there won't hear or get the Truth.  We pro lifers are out there speaking the Truth & giving literature packets, of the Truth, it's just a bit far away.  You don't want to lose any customers....you just want to ruin lives!!!!  We want to to save & restore lives!!! 

I went back outside to be with the team only to see that the Death Escort was ready for her next victim to devour.  Not on my watch dearie.  I read in the Planned Parenthood newsletter called, 'Informed Choice'.  You hypocrites!  Your only choice is 'death' you make no money when lives are 'saved'.  You've pushed us pro lifers, 80 feet away from the door, so that the people going in there won't hear or get the Truth to change their minds.  That's your 'informed choice'?  You ruin lives & souls at Planned Parenthood.  After their 'choice for death' the first reaction is usually relief then when time goes on this turns to pain, shame, grief & guilt.  That's what you do to the women & girls that you deceive. 

See full size imageI also read, in you so called 'Informed Choice' newsletter, that a volunteer with your Rape Crisis is a pagan & a witch.  What a 'good witch', is this the Wizard of Oz??  No thank you. The thought of having her at my bedside, if a violent crime had just taken place, would be a double trauma.  I would want a good pro life woman to be there instead, who loves God & life.  Please check out: http://www.childpredators.com/.

The abortionist, Rachael Phelps, wasn't at Planned Parenthood, this week, killing little babies, thank God. I just received this email on Sunday from a friend in Syracuse. I just found Rachael Phelps,she was in Syracuse, doing her evil there.

Medication abortion can save lives of women.

To the Editor:

Medication abortion has been a safe and legal option for women in the United States for almost 10 years. Virginia Black, in her Aug. 12 letter, suggested medication abortion is not safe. However, as can happen when non-medical people try to address medical issues, she does not have all the facts. Medication abortion is a safe option for many women with risks similar to miscarriage.

However, the Nicholas Kristof column, referenced by Black, specifically addressed the impact of medication abortion in developing countries. Unsafe abortion is one of the leading causes of maternal death and illness around the world. It is also one of the most preventable. More than 19 million unsafe abortions take place each year, and 95 percent occur in poor countries.

What Black overlooked was the context of Kristof’s column, in which he stated that Misoprostol “pills are beginning to revolutionize abortion around the world, especially in poor countries (where) one result may be tens of thousands of women’s lives saved each year.”

Black calls the use of abortion pills in developing countries “shocking,” but what is truly shocking is the 70,000 women who die and the almost a quarter of a million children who are orphaned each year from unsafe abortion that could be prevented with access to safe health services like medication abortion. If medication abortion can help, that is a step forward!

Tuesday, August 24, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

See full size imageWhen you think that you have experienced the worst of the worst you find out that you were wrong. The behavior & language out there today was unbelievable. I know that I'm at the most evil place on the face of the Earth, where that murder people, so what do I expect? I always hope for the best but I'm not going to get it at an abortion mill, really. 

See full size imageWhen I arrived at the center there was Martha, Beverly & John there.  Mary S., Donna, Carole, Carmen & Rob followed.  Sandy was in the center & Rose was not coming in today.  We'll see her tomorrow.  Melody came in later to work in the center. 

I finally got to the front lines only to hear that Planned Parenthood's ground keeper was giving us trouble about the buffer zone's, 15 feet restriction, which is Unconstitutional, to say the least!!  He was told by Planned Parenthood that it was 25 feet so he painted a 'yellow line' 25 feet from the entrance & is bugging us about it.  We measured 15 feet & put a 'black line' down to show the true distance that we can stand, in front of See full size imagePlanned Parenthood's Killing Mill.  Wow, what a lie they told him!  I wish that I could find a good Attorney to work on this case to get us our Constitutional rights back.  Rob had the Injunction papers with him & he showed this employee the paper work.  He said that he has been working for Planned Parenthood since 1994 & he has three children, who he has to feed.  I think  they're probably are all grown up by now, so don't give us this nonsense.  Get a job that you're not paid in Blood Money, sir.  He said that he was a Christian & he was wearing a cross around his neck.  Hear we go again!!  Christians that betray Christ & work in a place that kills His precious children!!  Go figure!  This Injunction Appeal in 2002, brings back bad memories, though it was well worth it to save lives.  We did win this appeals case in 2002, from the Injunction Case that we lost, in Buffalo's Federal Court in 1999.  Check it out: http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?navby=search&case=/data2/circs/2nd/009076.html.  Lots of reading with this appeal decision.  God protected us pro lifers, from this gross injustice, when we were trying to save lives of precious babies & their mothers, at Planned  Parenthood.  Thank you Lord.  Amen. 

A van came into Planned Parenthood with an older woman driving it.  I called out to her that she was driving into a Killing Mill & that we could help the girl that was with her.  But to no avail for they got out of their car & went into See full size imagePlanned Parenthood.  When she came out, about 20 minutes later, she said to me "shut up you --------- we're not here for an abortion".  I was shocked that an elderly woman would talk to another person that way, & one who was trying to help her family.  I said " why would you trust murders"?  I was upset to say the least.  Then all of a sudden a woman, who must have been lying down in the front seat, appeared out of no where & said to me " don't talk to my grandmother like that or I'll get out of the car & punch you in the face".  I guess it's 911 time.  So I got my phone out of my pocket & pretended to call 911.  The oh so sweet See full size imagegrandmother said to me "do you want my license number"?  So co operative you are!  I said "that won't be necessary, for I'll just look on your license plate for the number, thank you".  Well, off they went in 6 seconds to wherever.  This tactic usually works every time.  It's used to get rid of nasty people in a hurry before there is any incident, on their part.  When she came back, about a half hour later, to pick up her other granddaughter, she said to me "what don't you speak a litter louder, so I said back to her "okay, & by the way, we love you".  After she picked up her other granddaughter, on the way out, she gave me the 'bird', you go Granny, you give the elderly a bad name.  Ick!!

See full size imageWe had many young girls come in for baby & children clothes & See full size imagethe Material Aid Room was so busy. We also had drop off of food & diapers for our moms. It is so heartwarming when we see our moms so happy with what they just received. God is Great!!  

I was on the front lines with 7 pro lifers & it was difficult seeing the cars go into Planned Parenthood getting ready to have their precious baby killed by the abortionist Rachael Phelps.  It's like being in a continual nightmare standing near a building that is killing small babies (people (human beings) in the womb) one right after another.  How Evil & disheartening.  It's like being on the front lines of war seeing people get killed & there's nothing that you can do to stop it, only trying to defend those who are on the ground.  We call out to the mothers offering them help & love See full size image& a future but some of them just want to go in there to get 'unpregnant' again, in matter of minutes, rather than months when they can bring forth another human being, created by God, to live on planet Earth & to have a life & be productive here.  When they drive out of the Killing Mill I usually say "I hope that you didn't have your baby killed here today, if you did I pray that you repent for the sin of murder".  I then get sworn at & the finger.  Their hell has just begun.  We can only pray that they will ask God to forgive them, He will. 

 
After being out on the front lines we came into the center to do some things & See full size imageto get ready for our supper.  I brought a eggplant lasagna, garlic bread & chocolate covered brownies with walnuts. Martha & Janet' brought a nice salad & we had our favorite drink Cranberry juice.  We hurried to eat all this food & to get ready for the '40 Days for Life' meeting which was a good turn out of dedicated people.  It was a great meeting with a lot accomplished.  Went home late. 

 


Wednesday, August 25, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

I was walking to church this noon with John & I heard a guy on his cell phone say a very nasty word.  I turned around & told him that there was a Church here & for him to watch his mouth.  He said "it's your Church, not mine".  I then said "See full size imagethis is where God reigns".  He then said, in such a rude tone of voice, "mind your own business" & he said it several times, as I was walking up the stairs, to the Church where Father was celebrating Mass.  I thought later that it was my business to speak Truth to him no matter if he liked it or not.  One of the gifts of the Holy Spirit is Holy Boldness, just trust in the Lord for it.  We must correct in love that's a Corporal Work of Mercy.  We are responsible to correct those who are misguided for their repentance & renewal.  The Holy Sprit was a working on him, for a 'seed' was planted, in his soul.  After Mass John, Martha & I went to the center where Ryan & Ryan & Carole came a little while later, to witness the Truth.  Rose was now back in the center to work hard & make great sandwiches for us, for lunch.    
 
Yesterday the Landscaper got in our faces about where to stand on the sidewalk.  He was told by Planned Parenthood to paint a yellow line 25 feet from the entrance of the driveway, which is See full size imagewrong.  Yesterday Rob tried to explain to him & he showed him the 2002 Injunction, that said where we can stand, so we hope that he understood what Rob was saying & to leave us alone from now on.  About 2 hours later the police drove into Planned Parenthood & went in. He went into the front door only then to go into the side door & come out.  I had my Injunction papers ready for him but he didn't stop & he left, never to return again.  Yeah :) 
 
I was walking out of the center to go onto the sidewalk when I saw one of our graphic signs next to the tree in front of our nemesis, Buckpitt, which is a business right next to Planned Parenthood.  They have resented us being in front of their business, for the last 8 years, when we won the appeal.  Get over it guys for this is where the Judge said we could be.  Please take it up with the Federal Court so that we can be right in front of Planned Parenthood, to talk to the girls as they are going into that death trap.  Well, as I was walking over to the tree to get the sign to put it closer to us near the other See full size imagetree that we stand beside, the guy from Buckpitt, who was painting the building said "I don't want that there".  I turned around at him & said in a stern voice "it doesn't matter what you want it's not your tree, not because you said so I'm moving the sign closer to us here on the front lines".  He answered back "your very angry".  I said back to him "oh yes I am, they're killing babies at Planned Parenthood & all you do is give us trouble all the time".  I then walked away with our precious sign of a mutilated baby that was murdered by abortion.  What is the matter with these people?  Why don't they care?  Later on I went over to him & said that if ever you want to talk to me I'd be more than glad to set something up.  He never replied & I walked away.  I'm trying to get along with these people.  Lord help me!! 
 
I got a call on my cell phone asking for a pregnancy test.  She didn't live very far away & she said that she would be over in 20 minutes.  When she arrived See full size imagewith her boyfriend, Martha lead them into the Rose Room for the pregnancy test & for counseling.  In the meantime I had given a pregnancy test & counseled one young girl earlier.  We gave away many baby & children's clothes today too.  Rose was very busy. 

  


Thursday, 26, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

There was John & I who opened up the center & right behind us was a young mom with her son in a stroller.  Deanna just came with her niece, who is 7 years old, she was baby-sitting her today at Focus, what a joy she is.  I asked her if she could assist this mother with her son in the Material Aid Room, she said that she would.  I asked John if he would start to get the signs & things out onto the front lines to start to counsel the girls & guys going into the Killing Mill.  Tony, Deanna's father, helped John set up on the sidewalk.  Rose just came in & I had some assignments for her to do, which she quickly See full size imagestarted.  Frank came in to look over the Conference Room, which we might rent out, to start painting tomorrow morning.  Can't wait.  Should look great when finished & then we have to ask out Landlord to put in a nice & durable rug in for us.  This room should be great!!  Thank you Lord for this  Conference Room, an unexpected surprise, to advance our center's work. 

I got a call on my cell phone and a client came in for a pregnancy test.  Martha counseled her in the Rose Room.  Deanna was kept busy doing paper work & organizing & Suzanne was busy calling our clients to see how they were See full size imagedoing & to see if they needed anything.  She got through to some clients but some phone numbers were disconnected, when that happens we send out a letter.  We want to make sure, if possible, to connect with our clients.

See full size imageOutside we were plagued with a swarm of bees which Martha is deadly allergic to.  Scary!!  We had to make sure that the bees were not around Martha.  See full size imageIt was hot & our 'corn man' came again to drop off a full bag of corn from the Public Market.  All Summer long I have not been able to see him, for when he comes I've been in the center.  Darn!  I do hope that I get to see him at least once before the Fall to thank him for all the great corn all Summer long.  God bless this man. 

A young woman was looking at us from across the street & I noticed that she was preparing to cross over the street to us.  I say a quick prayer that all will go well. She approached us & was pleasant.  She was for 'life' & not for 'death' for these little innocent little babies.  We all agreed that abortion was evil & that it took a life of a human being.  All was going well until I just mentioned that the Peace Sign that she was wearing on her hat was really an inverted cross.  There I lost her.  She became defensive & said that someone else had told her that too but until God tells her she won't believe it.  I told her that God just did tell you, for He speaks to us through one another.  She saw See full size imagethat we had a statue of the Blessed Mother out there on the front lines, on a table.  She walked over to the statue & said that's Mother Mary & that we were worshipping her.  We said no we are not, we are honoring her, because she is the Mother of God.  She became more uncomfortable & then walked away.  For her to recognize the statue as Mother Mary, we think that she was an ex-Catholic. People who leave the Catholic Church are so hard to witness to.  We hold her in our hearts & hope that she comes back to the One True Catholic Church, founded by Christ, 2,000 years ago.  We love people of all faiths.

See full size imageThere were people who were very supportive of our street ministry & gave us support.  When some one is attacking us verbally some one will drive by & holler out their window "keep up the great work that you're doing".  Yea, we will & thank you for your love & support we certainly need it. 

Deanna was bring out paper work for me to sign & to send out.  She has been such a blessing to us this Summer.  She'll be going back to England to See full size imagecontinue her ministry there.  What a Christian!  The Lord sends us people when we need then & I praise Him for it.  We are growing as a ministry & as a center.  We will be having our second Mass at the center next Wednesday evening, celebrating our 5th. year Anniversary on the Birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Yeah!!  Happy Birthday Mother Mary... & Happy Birthday to the Focus Center.  Time flies, that's for sure.


Friday, August 27, 2010 at the Focus Center 

Earlier this week I had called my landlord to the Focus Center to ask him if we could use the Great Room, which is empty & available to rent out, for our '40 Days for Life' rally on September 21st..  He said "sure you can use for nothing but I want you to have the room".  "What" I said, "what do you mean"?  He See full size imagesaid I believe in what you're doing & I'm used to you & I really don't want to rent to strangers, so I'll give you the room for $800 plus the three rooms that you're renting now for $1,000".  I said "Bernie I don't know if I can do it, that's $1,800 a month"?  "Sure you can Mary just pray about it".  I said Bernie the Lord wants to hear from you".  He's an agnostic.  I said "I'll have to notify the Board first & can we paint the room".  "Sure & I'll put down new carpeting too".  Oh Lord what are you up to?  I notified the Board & all said "yes' to this new adventure See full size image& advancement of the Focus Center.  So Martha asked her ex See full size imagehusband to paint for us & he said that her would.  So we picked out the colors, a salmon, for the 2 accent walls, then the main walls a creamy beige. Should look real nice...

I was headed over to the center on Friday morning to help out & to get Frank lunch for his service.  When I arrived I saw the Planned Parenthood's landscaper, on his knees, scrubbing off the yellow line, which was a correct line for the See full size imageunconstitutional buffer zone, by the tree.  I briskly walked over to him & said "what are you doing scrubbing the correct yellow line & wiping off our pregnancy help line in sidewalk chalk. what is the matter with you".  He stood up & pointed the can of acetone right in my face & I pushed his arm away from my face.  If he would have sprayed my face & would have called the police & had him arrested.  I said you're working for those people that kill children & I pointed to the abortionist car that was parked in the parking lot, I pointed to it & said "she kills little babies".  I said that you're wearing your cross under your shirt, it will burn a hole in you, please get out of here".  He left in a huff.  So he scrubbed off the real 'Buffer Zone' yellow line that we See full size imagemeasured 15 feet.  "It's fine with me" I told him, now there isn't a yellow line.  Duh!  We finally notified our Attorney & she will write a letter to Planned Parenthood to set them straight about where the 'yellow line' should be.  It really doesn't matter because the good Lord s working miracles out there all the time no matter how far away we have to stand.  For the Lord has no boundaries, do I hear an Amen.. 

I walked back into the center to see how Frank was doing, he's a fast painter & he's doing a great job!  Thanks Frank.  Just then the doorbell rang & it was three young girls.  They asked if they could get a pregnancy test, all three of the girls.  Okay girls 'come follow me'.  After I ministered to them they went into the Material Aid Room to get some clothes for their children at home & the little one that was with them.  They were very happy & so was I.  For all three girls were negative.  I wanted to go to Church & to Confession before Mass started so I hurried now to go.  When I arrived at Church there was a line & I was hoping to make it into the Confessional, which I did.  When I was waiting in line the front door opened & there was Martha coming into the Church, I was so surprised.  Thank you Lord for I sure need her today.  How He provides.  After Mass we went over to the Pizza place on the corner to get See full size imagelunch for Frank, Martha & I.  Tuna supreme subs, yummy.  When we arrived at the center we all ate our lunch & then back to work we went.  Frank finished the accent walls & was coming back on Monday to start the other walls.  Great job he's doing.  Martha & I decided to go over to the Woman's Care Center to get the baby & children clothes & baby food that they had for us.  How nice that they're sharing their plenty with us.  They help us & we help them, it's called team work.  Before we left the doorbell rang & it was a young girl asking for a pregnancy test, & she had her boyfriend with her. We ministered to her & she had a 9 year son so I sent her into the Material Aid Room to get what she needed for him.  Nice couple. 

Before we were going to the Woman's Care Center we went over to one of our client's house to give her a paper that she needed for DSS, unfortunately we just missed her.  I called her on her cell phone & she will stop by the center next Tuesday to pick it up.  Now off to the Woman's Care Center.  We were blessed there with many nice things for our center & also lots of literature that we needed & they had.  I was very greedy & I told them so.  See full size imageThey asked if I needed a bag I said "sure" with my head down.  Oh well, you take the opportunity when it's before you.  Right!  They were very helpful with so many things & I will be kept busy, making phone calls... all to better the Focus Center.  I will be calling for 'free' bibles & for Excellus Blue Cross/ Blue Shield brochures for the center.   I'll put them right next to Fidelis Care.  Then our clients can have a choice with their Health Insurance coverage plan.  That will be good for their bodies & the Bibles will be good for their souls.  Martha & I thanked our friends & off we went to the next stop.  The bank!  I needed to deposit all our checks, that we were blessed with, for our work at Focus.  What a blessing our benefactors are to us... God bless them all.  Our next stop was to go to Wegmans Grocery Store, tSee full size imageo clip coupons for a great deal on baby diapers & baby wipes, for our clients.  We got at least 5 bags of diapers & 5 packages of wipes. The center needs these items & baby formula the most, then the baby clothes & children clothes & small items.  We are supplied for a while due to all the great people that dropped off these items when I recently sent out an SOS email, for these   items.  The response was fantastic!!  Love you guys :)

Next stop was supper, my treat Martha!!!  

 


Monday, August 30, 2010 at the Focus Center

I went to the center today to see hoe Frank was coming along with the painting & t get him lunch after Mass at noon.  When I arrived he was already done with the big wall & he said that he will return to do the largest wall tomorrow.  He showed my some wires on the wall & later on I called the landlord to see if he could check to see if they are alive or dead wires.  Always something of a challenge.  The landlord said that he will stop by tomorrow with his testing kit to see what is going on.  I don't want a fire in See full size imagethere that's for sure.  We have no smoke alarms but we do have an Fire Extinguisher, at least.  I think that we should have both for we have a lot of people in the building.  I don't want anyone to get hurt or killed.  I'm surprised that the City Inspectors didn't catch that he doesn't have any smoke alarms in the building.  Oh brother...
 

As I was talking to Frank, asking him what he wanted for lunch, the doorbell rang.  I went to the door & there was  a young girl.  I asked if I could help her & she said that she needed a pregnancy test.  I was headed to church early for my Holy Hour but I new that the dear Lord had sent her to me to take care of.  I did.  She took the test & I counseled her in how to act & to dress more modestly.  She said that she has a 1 year old sister & I said that we had some nice things in the Material Aid Room for her to get for her sister.  Then the doorbell rang again & I walked to the door seeing that there was 2 women & 6 See full size imagechildren.  I almost fainted for I knew that this was going to be a challenge & it was.  I lead them into the Material Aid Room & then went back to finish up with the client. I'm not nor anyone else is here on Mondays or Fridays, in the morning, so it was Providential, that I was hear today to take care of these people.  When I came back into the Material Ad Room I saw that one of the women had taken all 7 dresses off of the wall that were hanging there & she was putting them in her bag.  I quickly said to her that we need to save some dresses for our other clients that she could take two.  She said that the other girl said that we could take as much as we wanted.  "Oh yes" I said but that's within reason.  She said that the other woman that was with her had 8 children & she had 4, with a little girl on her way.   All the kids were dumping things on the floor & making such a mess.  I said to her that if you were at K- Mart right now shopping you wouldn't let your children do what they're doing in here.  She said something in Spanish & they calmed down a bit.  I went back to the counseling room & told the client that just took a pregnancy test to come on into the Material Ad Room to get something's for her sister. She got in there & got some nice things.  She forgot her Truth packet that I gave her in the Rose Room so I will send it to her in the mail.  See full size imageAfter everyone had left I did some more work in the center & then left to go to the noon Mass downtown & after that I went to get my car inspected. I made it by 2 days. To close for  comfort.  It's a $75 ticket.  Not good..... 

See full size imageThe sidewalk counselor who is on Monday evenings called me to say that he & Pat, our counselor in the center, were very busy handing out baby & children's clothes. What a day!  Thank you Lord for your goodness & grace.

 


 
Tuesday, August 31, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
Martha & John went to get subs for our lunch & also for Frank who is See full size imagepainting out new Event Room, that we were just blessed with, by God.  I went to the center to get started by myself & I thought that Sandy & Rose were coming to help me but they both called in.  Now I know how an employer feels.  I do appreciate all that our volunteers do, for the work at the Focus Center, I do depend on them so much.  I hope & pray that they both feel better soon.  Love ya!  So I just prayed to God that I could get things done to get ready to go to the front lines soon to defend life.  Jerry came & set up the signs outside & started to pray on his knees across the street from Planned Parenthood.  Martha & John & Rob arrived soon after.  Carole came a little later & set up more signs & was a witness to the people going in & out of Planned Parenthood & the cars driving by us.  Donna came around 2pm instead of 1pm, she said that she slept in, which is okay, she deserves to.  What a dedicated team of pro lifers that come on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays  to 'defend life'.  Martha didn't come right out because she was kept busy in the Material Aid Room helping our clients.  One of the moms said See full size imagethat she was told by the Salvation Army that she could get free diapers & formula at our center.  Wow!  A couple of days ago I had stopped at a red light & was heading to the center when I rolled down my window to give a mom with a baby in a stroller our brochure.  She said "oh, I've heard of you before, thanks".  Wow!  God is Great & we are so happy to be able to help people in the Community temporarily with their needs. 
 

John & I were on one side of Planned Parenthood using the mega phone & Rob was on the other side of Planned Parenthood using the mega phone & Jerry, Martha & Carole were across the street from Planned Parenthood witness for 'life'.  We had them surrounded.  We were praying & witnessing the Truth.  Many car that drove by surprised us by honking we also had a few people that gave us the 'bird', which means that they are guilty of something.  We pray that they 'repent' before they die. 

See full size image

A man, in a truck, drove into the parking lot & was delivering something to Planned Parenthood.  We called over to him to tell him what they do in there to little babies but the Death Escort, Silvia Rose, went over to him to greet him.  I was holding the precious aborted baby sign Malachi when he drove out & he gave me the finger.  I know that he is a Post Abortive Dad.  How sad!!  No one in their right mind would give their finger to a female holding a sign of an innocent aborted baby, if they themselves weren't involved in an abortion.  Please check out: http://ramahinternational.org/who-affected-abortion.html & http://ramahinternational.org/for-post-abortive-men.html & http://www.leaderu.com/orgs/tul/pap1.html &  http://www.menandabortion.info/.

I was still across the street when an angry woman got out of her car & came over to me saying "do you know why I'm here".  I answered her back saying See full size image"they kill babies in there", I knew in my heart what she was about to say next.  "I'm here for rape counseling".  I said to her that I was gang raped & I wouldn't come her for counseling because they kill babies in there".  Then she pulled up her dress to show mw her butt.  I guess this was her statement to me that she didn't care.  Maybe she had gotten pregnant from the rape & she had an abortion?  I don't know but I crossed over the street to tell that she could get her dignity back by going to a real & caring counselor & that she deserved that.  She walked into Planned Parenthood to get re victimized again by people that work in a place that kills little babies.  I wouldn't trust them that's for sure!!  Please check out: http://www.boundless.org/regulars/kaufman/a0000848.html & http://www.priestsforlife.org/articles/rapeandabortion.html & http://www.lifenews.com/nat6223.html.

 


Wednesday, September 1, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

It was a good day because the abortionist, at Planned Parenthood, doesn't kill babies there on Wednesdays, which is a good thing.  There is nothing that makes me more happy than a baby not being killed by abortion.  I gave a See full size imagepregnancy test to a girl that had been taking the Depo Provera shot & was very upset that she was having very serve side effects from the shot.  Check out: http://www.all.org/article.php?id=10133 & http://www.prolife.com/BIRTHCNT.html.  I encouraged her to go see her doctor for a mammogram for the lumps that she said that she discovered in her breasts.  She regrets that she ever took the shots.  "That messed me up", she said. She took the pregnancy test & the Truth packet with lots of information in it & some children's clothes for her 2 & 4 year old sons.  She was very grateful for all that she had learned today at Focus. The bible says "that you shall KNOW the Truth & the Truth shall set you free".
 
After I saw her two more ladies came in for baby & children clothes. The one girl had twin girls who were 2 years old & her sister, who just found out at Planned Parenthood, that she was pregnant.  She was so very happy & was not abortion minded at all.  She escaped their agenda of 'death' for her little baby.  I gave them the Growth & Development DVD & the Maafia 21: Black Genocide in the 21st. Century DVD to educate them.  I had a pocket New Testament on the table, as I counseled them in the Rose Room, & one of the girls took it.  Happy & blessed reading to you my dear.  After they left, about an hour later a mother & her pregnant daughter came into the center See full size imagefor baby & children's clothes.  The mom had 7 children, 6 girls & 1boy.  She came into get some clothes for her family & for her new grand baby, who is 16 weeks old, in her daughter's womb.  The new mom took some baby blankets & some other things, for she doesn't know if she's going to have a little boy or girl, at this time.  She said that she was going next week for an ultrasound that will determine the sex of the baby.  I told her that when she finds out that she can come back for baby clothes, at that time.  It was a great moment  celebrating 'life' of our past 2 clients.  Very refreshing helping these new moms, rather than them going into Planned Parenthood, to have their precious babies be murdered by Rachael Phelps, the abortionist there.  It's like night & day. 

Excellus Bluecross BlueShield logoMartha, John & Maria were outside witnessing with Carole & Rose in the center putting away baby & children clothes that we had just received from our benefactors.  Busy afternoon.  Just then the doorbell rang & it was Nancy from Excellus Blue Cross/ Blue Shield at the door.  I had called for some information & brochures to be given to the center for our clients.  She was very nice & I then recognized her as the lady that took care of me when I was applying for my Healthy New York, after I lost my job back in January of 2009, after our company had closed.  She was very nice & I was glad to see her again. She was very helpful to me & she left us many brochures for our future clients.  She new Anne, the President from 'Rochester Right to Life'.  Small world. 

I went outside for a few minutes & I was stopped by a man who was delivering something at the Veterinary Hospital, which is across the street from Planned Parenthood.  He walked over to me & said that he was a See full size imageKnight, from St. Jude's Parish.  I quickly went to give him one of our brochures & asked him for donations for our center's work.  He said that he would look into it.  He's name was Phil & he asked if I would make up a sign that will read :

'Why is America committing Genocide against it's own people with more than 55 million babies killed since 1973'?? 

Good question Phil, what's wrong with America for allowing this Genocide to take place??  What agenda, is America supporting, as they betray Almighty God??  We should be better than this!!

See full size imageMartha, John, Carole & Maria & I were outside to witness & to counsel taking all the abuse that comes to us by the people driving & walking by us & those who are at Planned Parenthood.  That's a part of the ministry.  You learn to live with it.  We do it to try to save & to change lives through the grace of God. 

Martha & I went into the center to do some work there & Tucker came into the center, to get his sign & then to go outside to witness until 6pm. Well this afternoon he stayed & talked to Martha & I for about an half an hour.  He was about to leave when one of the drivers from the Taxi company came over to us in the All Purpose Room asking if he could use a chair of ours.  I said "yes" thinking that he was setting up for a meeting when all of a sudden he placed See full size imagethe chair on the floor & stood on it & then preceded to rip the Taxi's antenna right out of the ceiling & he ran outside with it in his hands.  We were all in shock & I then knocked on the door of the Taxi company & said to Alan that one of the drivers just came in & ripped the antenna right out of the ceiling.  He said "what"!  Then he said that he was going to call the bosses right away, which he did, because when I went to the outside door I saw that they were out there, in the parking lot, & the driver who had just stolen the antenna was arguing with them.  Unfortunately a little while later they had brought him back into the building & that's when the troubles just got started with me.  One of the bosses had asked me what had happened when the guy was right next to him.  I started to tell him what has just happened when the 'bad guy' said to me "mind your own business" with an evil eye pointed right to me.  I said back that it was my business because this was our pregnancy See full size imagecenter  here to.  Then he said "mind your own business or I'll stab you". "What" I said, "what did you just say to me"?   Well, the first rule is that if anyone threatens our life then we must call the police to report it, for we won't have anyone threaten us, for no one has that right to put us in jeopardy. 

Then my second hell began, the police came.  You would think that they would be See full size imageon my side, since I called them regarding the threat that was made to me but remember that we live in an imperfect world.  They  wounded me a second time with their not understanding of what had just taken place & their unbelief of what he had said to me.  The one police officer made some really strange comments that were unbelievable & quite inappropriate, to say the least.  I thought that I was in the 'Twilight Zone' (for those of you that know what I'm talking about)!!   It was the second nightmare of the day.  Martha went around sprinkling some Holy Salt around the rooms, for what was happening was demonic, to say the least.  Martha spoke to the one police officer to set him straight & I was left with the other, poor me.  Well I got no where fast & they finally left.  I decided not to make a citizens arrest for Martha didn't have in her hearing aid so she didn't hear him say that to me.  That was far, if she didn't then she didn't but I did.  So it was his word against my word, & that's that.  He latter apologized for what he said to me with the prompting of Martha who said that we should all just get along.  Blessed are the peace makers.  So he started to approach me & I backed off & accepted his apology from a far.  That'll do.  To say the least it was a very stressful time that was most unexpected, in the center. 

It was 6pm & the landlord came in, saying to me "I heard that you called the police".  I answered back to him "so you have a police radio Bernie".  No answer.  We had an appointment with the man, from Christian Rugs tonight, to pick out the color for the new rug in the new Great Room.  This turned out not as exciting as it should have because of all the commotion earlier on.  See full size imageNeedless to say I picked out a nice multi colored rug & the landlord worked out a payment plan.  It will be put in next Tuesday at 12 noon, just in time for our special Wednesday Mass, in the new Great Room, to celebrate the Blessed Mother's Birthday & the Focus Pregnancy Help Center's 5 years of service, in helping pregnant moms & their families, in the community.  Should be a great evening, can't wait!

Martha had to go, the stress was to much for her & I was left straightening See full size imageout the center until it was done.  That's the job of the Director & that's fine with me.  Later on she told me that she had gone to church, to pray to God, before the Blessed Sacrament.  What a stressful day but a day of blessings too.  God always turns things around & makes it for good.  I just need to trust Him more, for He is forever faithful.    

 


Thursday, September 2, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

Outside on the sidewalk we had Martha, Bill, John, I & two other pro lifers, who were praying on the other side of the building, of Planned Parenthood today with Rose & Deanna inside the center.  Carole came by, which was a See full size imagesurprise because she doesn't usually come on Thursdays, but to our shock she said that her little grand daughter Payton, who was born 4 weeks ago at 1lb. 7ozs., was dying.  I gave her a hug & said that we are holding little Payton in our hearts & prayers.  This was a sad moment.  She told us that if she's not here next week she'll  be in Ohio where her daughter & Son in Law are.  Let's pray for a miracle dear Lord to let baby Payton to live & please bless the family with peace.  Thank you Lord Jesus. A few minutes later the cars began to go into Planned Parenthood to have their precious children be killed by the abortionist Rachael Phelps.  One baby is born & is trying to survive & the other babies are not born yet & are trying to survive.  Why are some mothers killing their own children, rather then loving & protecting them, like Carole's daughter is?  This scenario is really strange. 

I just then got a call & it was a client of ours needing some diapers & wipes & clothes for her baby.  I told her to come on in & we'll give her some.  Later See full size imageafter she arrived she told me that her grandmother had taken her baby & all his clothes, without her permission, when she was in her parents house, where she is now living.  She called the police & they told her to get an order of protection out on the grandmother & to press Kidnapping charges against her.  She & her mother got her son back the next day after the grandmother dropped the baby off at Day Care.  What was she thinking?  I gave her a bag of diapers & a box of wipes & she picked out some baby clothes, to hold her off, until she could get the clothes back from the grandmother.  She wasn't sure how that would happen.  So the Focus Center was there for her during this difficult time & I was glad of that.  I gave her some special personal items like a basket full of soaps, candles & lotions for herself that made her very happy.  My heart melted when she gave me a big smile back & a hug with a 'thank you' besides.  "My pleasure" I said back.  She, like all our clients & their children, are so dear to our hearts & are in our prayers too.  Off she & her precious baby were off to catch the bus downtown.  Keep in touch I said to her as she was leaving.  She turned around & said that she would.  That made me very happy.

I was now back to the front lines & the pro lifers there were praying & sidewalk counseling.  A few minutes later Deanna arrived to work in the center.  I followed her into the center & then gave her some instructions.  I needed some letters to be written & some other small projects for her to do.  I See full size imagewas sad because this was her last day with us for she's going back to England to do her mission work there.  We'll all miss her that's for sure & she's been such a blessing to us over the past 4 weeks that she's been with us.   The very best to dear Deanna.  She said that she'll be back in the US at Christmas time & we'll see her then again :) 
 

When I went back outside I brought some bottled water from the refrig, for it was a very hot day.  The team was glad to see me that's for sure.  Just then the cars were coming out of Planned Parenthood & the girls had there heads down & the boyfriends were shouting at us.  They had their precious baby be killed here today & now are tormented by our graphic signs, that was suppose to save their baby's life, but they wouldn't listen & they went through with it, paying the assassin to kill their God given child.  How Evil, how Inhumane & how Insane.  My heart drops when they come out of Planned See full size imageParenthood & of course when they go in too.  Lives, through the grace of God, have been saved but many lives have been lost, which is so difficult for  Martha & I especially because we are usually the ones that are there when they come out 'looking like death warmed over' slumped either in the fron or back seat of the car, the rest of the team are usually gone at that time.  Maybe we should be gone too, for it's so hard for Martha & I?   We only hope & pray that they will ask God to forgive them for this sin of 'murder' (which abortion is) with a sincere heart of repentance & God will forgive them, otherwise they are putting their souls in jeopardy, of going to Hell forever, for this Mortal Sin. 

The doorbell rang & I went to open the door.  I saw three young girls, See full size imagestanding there.  I asked if I could help them & two of the girls said that they were here for a pregnancy test, the third girl was pregnant.  I lead them to the Rose Room for testing & counseling.  I asked the two girls to fill out an Intake Sheet.  The one girl said "is this Planned Parenthood"?  I looked at her in surprise & said "no it's not, they kill babies at Planned Parenthood, we're a pregnancy center where we save lives".  The first test was done - negative, the second test was done - negative.  I started to teach about self respect & abstinence.  These girls were very young but not as young as the pregnant little girl for she was 14 years old.  It made me very upset that a boy took advantage of her at 14.  Where was the mother who works in the church??  Don't get me wrong I'm so glad that she's having her baby & not killing her child, that's not the point. That's a given, for when you're pregnant, you stay that way, no matter what your situation is  'YOU NEVER KILL YOUR BABY'!!  The questions are: why do these girls have no boundaries & why don't they know how to say "NO" & why are they getting themselves in these situations, with these inconsiderate, sex minded guys, that are using them for their pleasure.  I want to make the bad things that happen to them go away but I can't.  That's why prayer & education is so important along with our love & guidance, that we give them at the Focus Center, is so important, for a 'new See full size imagebeginning'.  Where are their mothers & fathers??  Where are the Preachers & Teachers, in the Community??  They all seem to know where Planned Parenthood is!!  That EVIL place that kills babies & ruins peoples lives.  What is wrong with this picture?  When I found out that she was 14 I asked her to fill out an Intake Sheet so that Suzanne can call her, at times, to see how she is doing & if she needs anything.  I also gave her some helpful brochures to take with her & told her to call them to get some assistance during her pregnancy & afterwards.  We'll be there for her too.  I also gave her the Growth & Development DVD & the movie Bella (which is about adoption) & some adoption informational brochures too.  I gave her some baby T shirts & a baby blanket & said for  her to come back when she knows if she's going to have a boy or a girl.  She was happy to hear that.  She seemed in 'good spirits' with her pregnancy & that's good because emotions effect the baby, in tSee full size imagehe womb.  All three girls said thank you & good bye & off they went, into the cruel world.  I was thinking that her two friends, probably want to get pregnant to, so that all three are pregnant at the same time, for they are best friends.  Like I said earlier, where are the parents, etc.?  Doesn't anyone care?  We do, we're a start.........
 
Pastor Jane't had just arrived, for her teaching course, about the Bible.  I didn't get there until late & Martha had gone to get a pizza for our supper.  We all ate at the table & Jane't played some beautiful music to relax us.  I had just finished the cream of broccoli pizza when the doorbell rang & it was Jennifer, from the See full size imageCatholic Courier, for an interview that she called me about the day before.  She was doing an article about how some people got started in their ministries & what makes them keep on going after all these years later & through difficult times.  It's an easy couple of questions to answer for it's  'God'.   He chose me for this ministry & keeps me going forward.  I interviewed with her for two hours & fifteen minutes.  I got a little long winded talking about myself but I did give 'God the Glory' as I witnessed to her highlights of my 25 years in the pro life movement, on the streets & in the center.  She had to go, to pack her suitcase, for her & her husband were heading to Rome the next day to see the Pope & to take a journalism class.  I asked her if I could fit in her suitcase.  She laughed, maybe she thought I was kidding?  Have a safe & blessed trip Jennifer.  The article will be in the October's Catholic Courier. 
 
It was 8:15pm now & Martha & Jane't had gone home. John had left earlier to go to a meeting on East Ave. around 7pm & had just returned from the See full size imagemeeting.  He was now waiting for a ride back to my apartment to get his car to go  home to Bristol.  I wasn't ready so he did some work on the computer for me.  We left around 9:30pm tonight.  A long day but a blessed one.
 
The next day I came back to the center to paint the door, to the taxi company, gray.  It took a lot of time & then I went to the Church Rectory get the DVD's that we pass out to our clients, from Father, who burns them for me.  Thanks See full size imageFather, you're doing a great job in saving lives.  These are the Growth & Development & Maafa 21: Black Genocide in the 21st. Century DVD's, a very helpful teaching aid that we give away to save babies lives & to educate. 
 

I then received the Sacrament, of the Anointing of the Sick, from Fr. Leone, my Spiritual Director. He's also the Focus Pregnancy Help Center's Spiritual See full size imageDirector.  He prayed for me & I then received Holy Communion, which is the real Body, Blood, Soul & Divinity of Jesus Christ.  Check out: http://www.beginningcatholic.com/communion.html & http://catholicism.about.com/od/thesacraments/The_Sacraments-of_the_Catholic_Church_The_Seven_Sacraments.htm.

Thanks Fr. Leone, you & Fr.C. & Fr.P. are a blessing to me & to the work of the Focus Center.  God bless you all.

See full size imageI then quickly ate my chicken sandwich before I headed outside to the War Zone!  Just then the doorbell rang & it was Martha bringing a young girl into the center. She indicated that she was going to Planned Parenthood, thinking about having an abortion, so I asked her to fill out the Intake Sheet & then preceded to round up as much information that would be helpful to her as I could.  I even gave her a DVD on Growth & Development & Maafia:21.  She took the little rubberized baby at 12 weeks & I also showed her the model of the baby, in her womb, at 9 weeks. I could tell that she was amazed. I brought her into the office to see the pictures I have on the wall of an abortion, for educational purposes.  She looked shocked & that was good. 

  


 Wednesday, September 8, 2010 at the Focus Center

See full size imageWe celebrated the Mass, in our new beautiful Great Room, on the Birthday of the Blessed Mother & our 5th. year as a Pregnancy Center.  Our celebrant was Fr.Tony, who gave a fantastic homily, & our '40 Days for Life' coordinator Rick, gave his testimony of his coming back to the Catholic Church.  It was a powerful witness to the love of God & the Truth. There was much sharing & a great buffet too.  Thanks to all that came, all 27 of you, you are a blessing to us, at Focus.  Also many other people wanted to come but it didn't work out for them tonight but hopefully next month, when we have another Mass, in the Great Room.  The celebrant will be Fr.Brian Carpenter, who is the newest ordained priest, here in Rochester, NY.. 


Thursday, September 9, 2010 front of Planned Parenthood

See full size imageAfter Mass today I spoke to my police friend, Officer Mike, regarding the episode last Wednesday at the center with the out of control taxi driver.  I told him about the police responses that were inappropriate & he said that he will speak to them.  I said "thank you" for this officer is a true officer & I wish more officers would be like him.  When I arrived at the center Martha was just getting out of her leader car, for her car is in the shop.  Jerry came over to help set up on the sidewalk.  I was in & out of the center until Suzanne, our Thursday counselor, came.  Rose had come in now to the center & I gave her some instruction for the afternoon.  When I came back out Martha told me that a car came out of Planned Parenthood & the passenger was slumped in the front See full size imageseat & she was showing her wrist band, for she had an abortion this morning & was coming out now.  It was very hard for Martha to see & for me to hear.  A blue truck had dropped off two girls into the killing mill.  Is said to him as he was leaving, "what are you doing dropping off these two girls"?  He rolled up his window as he drove passed us, on the sidewalk.

A red van was turning around in the veterinary, who is across the street form See full size imagePlanned Parenthood & I thought that it was going to go up the street but it went right into Planned Parenthood's driveway.  I was shocked to see his whole family get out of the van & walk into Planned Parenthood, him & his wife & children.  I called out to him but he wouldn't listen.  My heart ached to see that.  Then three young girls were walking into Planned Parenthood & I called to them one of the girls seemed to want to come over to Martha & I but they all went into Planned Parenthood instead.  Again your heart aches at al of this.  Nasty people were driving by & See full size imagea kid on a bicycle rode passed Martha, for I was in the center when this happened, he said to her as he rode by "why don't you just go away".  She replied "why don't you ride your bicycle in the street rather than on the sidewalk"?  What a smart allelic!  I was quickly eating my turkey sandwich that Rose had made & after the last bite I saw that the three girls were coming out of Planned Parenthood & were on the sidewalk next to us.  One of the girls said "I heard what you were saying & I wanted to come over to see if you could help me"?  "Oh yes" Martha replied.  I said that there was a counselor in the center right now so come follow me I said.  They seemed to be some hesitancy but thank God they started to follow me to the center.  I took a drink of my ice tea before I started walking & I crunched down on something so I took it out of my mouth only to see that it was a bee.  Ick!!  I spit it out onto the sidewalk & teased the girls See full size imagesaying "I almost swallowed a bee".  I lead them into the center & introduced them to Suzanne, who now took over in helping the girls, for they are now in good hands.  I handed them all a Truth packet & a rubberized 12 week old baby & they said "thank you" & I then left them with Suzanne & I went back outside to be with Martha who was with Jerry who was praying on the brick side of Planned Parenthood. 

Martha & I saw a young woman with a suitcase on wheels coming down the See full size imagesidewalk, we always get ready when we see someone coming up the sidewalk, with the Truth packet in hand to pass out to them.  When this young woman came near us she immediately said to us "you both look familiar, where have I've  seen you before"?  We both said "was it here"?  She said "no, I never had no reason to go to Planned Parenthood, what church do you go to"?  I said "Our Lady of Victory, down the street".  Martha said "I attend St. Theodore's in Gates".  "No" she said "not at these churches, where do I know you both from"?   I replied that the only place I can think of was here on the sidewalk.  "Well maybe" she said back. "Oh", I replied.  She quickly answered back "oh no I've never had an abortion".  "I have 3 children & I'm just divorced".  I'm on my way to the Jennifer House, (which is a prison outreach program that works with men & woman & helps them to reenter the community following their release).  It's sponsored by Spititus Christi, which does good community work in helping people but there See full size imageTheology is way off.  They are excommunicated from the Catholic Church, but they refer themselves as Catholics.  This is on there web site "We are an inclusive Catholic Church where all are welcome".  No you are not!!  They are only kidding themselves.  The so called pastor Mary Ramerman, thinks that she's a priest.  No again!  It's only in her head.  Woman can't be priests because Jesus was a man & so were the Apostales.  In the Church women play many important roles but one of them is not as a priest.  Sorry Mary!  Please repent & all those who work & attend Spiritus Christi.  I enven have a friend that attends there & it breaks my heart. He did ask me for my prayers though.  They don't follow the Truth.  They are everything to everyone thus compromising the Truth to those that need it for their salvation & healing.  Enough of this. Well, our little lady, that stopped & talked with us, took a Rosary & our Truth packet & gave us a nice warm smile & said "good bye" & off she went down the street.  She said that she had taken the wrong bus & got off at the wrong bus stop but the good Lord had other plans for her today.  She was a gift to both Martha & I.  What a blessing to have meet her & we were touched by this encounter with her.  We wish her well & we will keep her in our hearts & prayers that she can get better soon & go back with her children.  She's a Catholic & I suggested for her to go to the Sacrament of See full size imageConfession & to attend Mass every Sunday & of course to say her Rosary.  Mother Mary will draw her closer to Jesus, her son, for hope & healing in her 'new life'.  Hope to see her again someday. 

I saw a car drive by & it was Sergeant Bob.  He saw Martha & I & did a U Turn See full size image& came over to us for a visit.  I said "Hi Sergeant Bob, how are you doing"?  He said that he had just retired from the police force after 37 years of service.  "It's about time, don't you think, he said"?  I agreed, would I argue with a Sergeant!!  He did say that he was still working part time for the Federal Marshals office.  I forgot to ask him about how Planned Parenthood harassed us with the inaccurate yellow buffer zone for about 2 weeks with the landscaper on our tail.  So far we're not having any problems with him.  But in the future, if he starts up again, I know who to call, I do have his number.  He asked me how I was doing & I told him about the pregnancy center's advancement.  He them looked at me sternly & said "I asked how YOU were doing"!.  Oh me, how am I doing, terrible I confessed.  "What's wrong", he said.  "Oh I have  Fibromyalgia http://www.fmaware.org/site/PageServer, besides other things going on, to many to mention".  He said "is this an Autoimmune condition?".  "I guess so", I replied  "What are you doing for it", he said?  I said "nothing, I don't know what to do for it, I can't take pain pills all my life, I'll ruin my liver, so I just offer my pain & discomfort up to the Lord to use it to save lives & souls, including my own, & He gives me the grace to endure it".  "I'll be fine" I said, I receive the Sacrament of the Sick every month, that's my medicine & try to go to daily Mass & receive the Holy Eucharist, that's my medicine.  Plus read the Bible & say the Rosary, that's my medicine too.  He's Catholic, so I know that he understood, what I was saying.  "Well it was good seeing you ladies & remember to be careful out here".  "Yes Sergeant Bob we will, bye See full size imagefor now & it was good seeing you too.  I remember once he told me that he was scared that a car would someday jump the curb & hit us, so far so good Sergeant Bob, thanks for caring.  We go way back, about 14 years back.  Glad that he retired & he will be able to spend more time with family & to relax.   

I went I get the sidewalk chalk to put down, on the sidewalk, the Pregnancy See full size imageHelp number which is: 800-395-Help, 24x7.  I finished on the side where Martha & I were standing, now I was going over to the other side of Planned Parenthood, to put down the same message there. We had a girl call that number & she received the right kind help that she needed. Yeah!!  Just as I was finished I saw Donna drive by.  I hollered over to her & she did a U Turn, the second of the day, & she stopped where I was standing.  She said that she was going to drop off Veronica over to the music school & she'll be right back.  She also said that she had hurt her back & was very uncomfortable. "I'm sorry to hear that, my dear".   I then said that Martha & I were heading into the center & we'll all See full size imagewatch 'Blood Money', a DVD about the abortion industry, together.  "Okay" she said, I'll be right back & I can stay about an hour."  "Great", I said, "I'll see you in a little while".  Off she goes.  I walked over to where Martha was & we brought all the things back into the center to put away.  I said to our volunteer, "put down what you're doing & come watch the DVD 'Blood Money' with us, when Donna comes in, for I want you to see it too".  When Donna arrived, with her 3 out of 6 children, we all went into the Rose Room, to watch the DVD.  Her 2 boys were in the Meeting Room playing & Donna was holding little wiggly, Hannah.  This 'Blood Money' was heart retching, to listen to, to say the least.  Just then, our sweet volunteer burst out in uncontrollable tears & told us her See full size imagestories.  When she was 12 years old she was rapped.  She didn't know that she was pregnant until she was 8 months along.  Her mother then drove her to a place on Lattimore, next to Strong Hospital, & made her have an abortion.  The mother paid lots of money for the abortion. When she woke up she asked about her baby, not really knowing what  had just happened. When she found out that she wasn't pregnant anymore she said that she hated her mother from that moment on.  When her mother, on her death bed, asked her to forgive her for what she did, she replied "no, I only hope that my baby, that you killed, will forgive you".  She was crying like a baby.  I got up & gave her a hug & a Kleenex.  My heart went out to her for the loss, of her baby, & for the betrayal, of her own mother.  She said that her own mother wanted to abort her but was talked out of it & that her grandmother raised her, for most of her life.  What loss, pain & rejection.  My heart went out to her, for I related.  Then she said that she had some children & then had her Fallopian tubes tied.  A couple of years later she thought that she could be pregnant so she went to Strong Hospital to get a pregnancy test.  It was positive.  The female doctor told her that she had an infection & that she needed to take 'this pill'.  She told her that she would when se got home. The doctor said "no, you need to take it now".  So she did & off she went home thinking that she had an infection & all will be well.  No so, not so.  The next day she started to bleed & all 'this stuff' came out of me, she said.  Then she new that she was pregnant & that the doctor had given her an abortion pill.  She was devastated to say the least & heart broken again.  She didn't believe in abortion & never wanted one.  See full size imageThis was the second time she was deceived & betrayed by a See full size imagehigher authority, first a mother & now a doctor.  How sad, my heart went out to her.  This sharing was hitting close to home for me too.  Not the same story but the betrayal of the higher authority, a mother, a nurse instructor & two doctors.  I spoke with her for awhile & then we continued to watch the intense DVD.  After it was over I realized how important it was, for it had triggered, our sweet volunteer & myself, from past traumas.  Martha & Donna were also effected by this video.  A must see for all pro lifers.  I thought of showing it at Focus, during the '40 Days for Life' campaign.  The DVD is short 2 hours, it goes quickly, but it's soooo important to watch!!  The more knowledge we receive the more that we can educate others. She asked to watch the very graphic video 'Hard Truth'.   WARNING: GRAPHIC PICTURES: http://www.abortiontv.com/Movies/viewliveabortions.htm & http://www.prolife.com/.  I asked her if she really wanted to see an abortion, I wouldn't even watch it.  She said "yes".  I went to get the DVD, for her to take home to watch it with her family, as requested by her.  I hope that I made the right decision, for I don't want to wound her any further, for she's been through so much already & she's such a sweet woman.  She's such a blessing to us at Focus.  Thank you Jesus!! 

 


Monday, September 13, 2010 infront of Planned Parenthood

How do I compute this one.  We have a great team who are on the front lines & in the Focus Center on Mondays evenings from 3-6pm.  This evening, I spoke with the counselor to see if everything went well she told me this story of what happened on Monday evening at Focus.  The sidewalk counselor rought a young woman into the center, who had just come out of Planned Parenthood.  Pat, the Monday evening counselor, greeted her at the door & brought her into the Rose Room for counseling & to fill out the Intake Sheet, so that we can better serve our clients needs.  The story was that this client See full size imagewas pregnant, she just found out at Planned Parenthood, & has 3 other children at home.  She isn't married & it doesn't seem likely that marriage, to the father of her children, will happen.  She has had one abortion in the past & said that she will never do that again, ever.  After her abortion she started to cry & the so called nurse at Planned Parenthood said "maybe this wasn't the right decision for you after all".  Now what then, the damage is already done??  Rachael Phelps just killed her precious baby & the so called nurse said "oh, I think you made a mistake prehaps".  What about before the fact dearie & why does Planned Parenthood kill children anyway??  Well the shocker was, after she was told today that she was pregnant, the so called nurse said to her "why don't you come back tomorrow to terminate".  The poor girl almost vomited on the floor, so out of the Killing Mill she goes, all alone, until she sees the sidewalk counselor who now changes her life.  Praise God!!  He lead her into the Focus Center & Pat, the counselor, gets the See full size imagewhole story.  She gives her some adoption information & calls Bethany Christian Services & the client talks to the Social Worker there for over a half an hour.  She then goes into the Material Aid Room & gets a whole lot of things for her children & the sidewalk counselor brings her home.  How can anyone NOT believe in God??  I was said that she told Pat that when she went for the abortion there was no one there in front of Planned Parenthood so in she went to do the awful deed & when she came out in the early afternoon there we were, on the front lines.  She said that she saw our graphic sign of the 10 week old aborted baby & she knew that was her baby, that she just paid the abortionist Rachael Phelps to murder, in cold blood.  See full size imageHer pain & grief & shame & sorrow was still evident as of today, I was told.  The client will be coming back on Wednesday to pick up some older children clothes, for her 11 year old son, that Pat will be bringing in. When I see her on Wednesday, I'll talk to her about some post abortion care, so she can receive forgiveness, help & healing, from God & her precious baby, that was killed that awful abortion day.  My heart is very sad that we can't get anyone to be out in front of Planned Parenthood on Tuesday & Thursday mornings.  I will say that Pat & Bill do pray, the Rosary, for an hour on Tuesday mornings, so it seemed that this woman came after they left, to have the abortion.  We should have pro lifers there, in front of Planned Parenthood, every day & all day long too.  What's wrong with this picture?  Why are good people so docile when it comes to abortion, which effects us all, in this country?  Abortion is the murdering of an innocent human being, that is totally dependent on the mother, in the womb, where it should be safe.  This cancer, of abortion, has hit home to all of us, either directly or indirectly.  When will this Evil end & when will people be more pro active, in the cause??

 


Tuesday, September 14, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
When I arrived at the center after Mass I started to bring things in from my car & to put some things away.  Sandy just came in & helped me bring the winter baby & children clothes, that I had washed at home, for the center.  Nice & fresh & clean.  I was complaining about the  taxi guys that had a meeting in the All Purpose Room & didn't put things away.  Just then I saw a young girl come walking down the hallway.  I said "are you hear to get some things in the Material Aid Room"?  "Yes", she said so I asked Sandy to go in the room to help her.  I said "you look familiar, I remember you came in with your 2 See full size imagesisters on Friday".  She said "yes, I thought that I was going to have a boy but just found out, through ultrasound, that she's a girl"  "Wow " I said "that's great".  Your baby is due in January so take what you need now & you can come back another time to & get more things for you baby.  I remembered that she told me on Friday that she had an abortion, in the past, but never would do that again.  I went into the office to get some post abortion brochures to give to her for help & healing.  I told her that I had put some information in her bag.  She thanked me & off she went & happy person.  Our post abortive girls are hurting & we want to be there to help them to heal & to get right with God, who they greatly offended, by having an abortion.  God is loving & merciful & quick to forgive. 
 
Rose just came in & I asked her to make a sandwich for Martha & I for our lunch, for I was about to faint.  I need to eat a better breakfast, so I can go See full size imagestrong in the afternoons, here on the front lines.  Just then Mary S. came into the center to get some signs to go out to the See full size imagesidewalk.  I said "come follow me into our new Great Room".  She was so impressed.  She said that she would be gone for the next 2 weeks for her & her husband of 25 years are going to California to celebrate.  We will miss you Mary, have a great time celebrating your 25th. Wedding Anniversary.  You both deserve a great time.  :)
 
See full size imageJust then Carole came in with a huge crucifix.  It was beautiful & heart aching.  I quickly went into our new Great Room & took 2 pictures that I had put up on the wall on Saturday & then put up the Crucifix.  We want to give God the Glory & Praise, for what He has done for us. Carole said that little Peyton is holding her own & will be going to visit her daughter in Ohio for her Baby Shower.  Great Carole that will be nice for your daughter & for the rest of the family. 
 
I was in & out of the center, all afternoon.  Five moms & I dad were helped in the Material Aid Room as Rose was putting out the winter clothes & putting away the summer clothes.  Very busy day, like always.  I saw a young man walking down the sidewalk with a baby in the stroller.  I called over to him & See full size imagetold him that we had 'free' baby & children clothes in the center.  He crossed the street with his baby & there he goes into the center.  Martha went in to assist him & when she came back out she said that he told her that he has had custody, of his daughter, from day 1.  When he came back out & as he passed us by, on the sidewalk, I looked right in his eyes to thank him for a great job that he's doing for his daughter & if he needed anything else, to come on back.  He smiled & said "thank you".  As he walked by us we saw that his shirt had a huge cross on the back of his shirt. He was so happy & proud of his bundle of joy. What an experience, I feel like crying. 
 
A van just drove into Planned Parenthood & when the van door opened out came a child, a boy around 5 or 6 years of age.  It just breaks my heart to see children there at Planned Parenthood, that the parent or parents bring their See full size imagechild or children, to such an evil place. The mother brought him into Planned Parenthood & about 15 minutes later they came back out.  As he was going into the van I hollered over to him saying "I'm sorry, sweet boy, that you are here".  He answered me back in such a sweet child like voice saying "that's okay".  I almost melted & cried too.  He was consoling me, that he was there.  Maybe he picked up on my worry for him.  My heart was touched.  He sounded like an angel from above.  Maybe, that was God's way to say that this situation was not to worry about, for the abortionist had left about 10 minutes earlier.  What an I to do Lord??  You have my heart & life & tears. 
 
A girl had walked by us & I asked her if she needed any baby or children clothes.  She said "no".  Then Martha said that we give out free pregnancy tests.  She turned around & said "okay I would like to have one please".  So Martha brought her into the center for a pregnancy test, which was negative & while she was there she went into the Material Aid Room to get some things for her 9 year old son. 
 
I was looking forward to seeing the carpet man today to pick out the carpet colors in both the hallway & the All Purpose Room.  When he arrived I called out landlord & he said that he was a few minutes away.  Martha & I looked at See full size imagethe carpet colors & we picked out 2 beautiful shades  for both rooms.  It will be done on Monday & it will look great Yeah!!!  Thank you Lord for I've been waiting for 5 long years to change the carpet in the center's hallway & the main room, which we do share with our friends, in the Taxi company.  It will look beautiful & it will be ready for the '40 Days for Life' 'Kick Off Rally', on Tuesday September 21st. at the Focus Center.  I just found out today that our landlord Bernie his wife runs a Day Care Center in their home.  What a shock to say the least.  He also rents out apartments.  Learn something new every day.. 
 
Bob came into the center with 100 handmade Rosaries, that were blessed.  See full size imageWe put a Rosary in all of our Truth packets & we try to hand them out to the people walking on the sidewalk too.  They were beautiful  He also wanted to make a donation, to the center, in Memory of a friend of ours Dr. Barb, whose mother who just died.  My heart was touched again today. 
 
A girl & guy came out of Planned Parenthood.  I was on the other side of the See full size imagestreet at that time so I offered them the Truth packet.  The girl wanted no part of it but the young man took it from me.  The cars driving by were vicious, or at least some of them.  They should keep their fingers to themselves.  Like Carole says "I hope that it drops off".  I hope that this is Christian.  I know what she means. 
 
We saw that a large group of young kids were coming down the street from the school up the street.  We were there to educate as they walked by.  Then See full size imagethe teachers came by saying to the students "just keep on walking".  Okay nice teacher, we are your friends, too. I feel that these kids will never forget what they saw today & maybe it will even save a life, in the future.  The mind always remembers.  
 
The abortionist was standing there, by her dark blue car, talking to another woman with short hair.  This made me sick.  I called over to her asking her to repent & that there will be justice someday for all the people that she's killed.  I also said that because she had an hysterectomy at 23 that she wants all women not to have children.  I went on & on, for it's so horrible to see someone that you know that kills children & acts like it's no big deal.  What's wrong with her?  Why is she killing children?  Earlier this afternoon a car See full size imagecame out of Planned Parenthood & the young girl, on the passenger side, was crying.  Her mother was driving the 'get away' car.  I hollered to the young girl & said "I hope someday you can forgive your mother for what she did to you here today".  This is the legacy of Rachael Phelps, who destroys life in the womb & life outside of the womb. 
 
I was in the center & Carole came in saying that she had to go & that See full size imagea woman was out on the sidewalk with Martha & she wants to join our efforts there.  I knew exactly who Carole was talking about.  Sheila called me about 4 weeks ago saying that when she can she'd like to join us on the front lines.  I went outside to meet her.  She's a very nice woman will be joining Martha & I on Wednesday afternoons.  Welcome Sheila..  
 
Martha & I were now in the center & getting ready for supper. I brought in a baked chicken & Cole slaw & a green salad & stuffed potato skins with bacon & cheese.  Yummy!  See full size image Martha, after supper, was going to her Parish to speak about the '40 Days for Life" campaign & we were having our last meeting tonight, at Focus, to discuss the '40 Days for Life' campaign.  The doorbell started to ring.  We had 6 people at the meeting.  All of them were wearing 'I just Voted' stickers on.  "Where is yours Mary" said Donna.  I said that I was very busy in the center so go into the office to see what a mess it is.  "No excuse, you need to go vote tonight".  Then here comes Anne, who says See full size imagethe same thing to me & then another person says the same thing too, I'm surrounded.  Well, after the meeting they all helped me in the office, to get some things done, so now I was 'free' to go vote.  I was glad that I did, for it is my duty,  & I was so happy that my candidates won the Primary!!!    I was given two 'I just Voted' stickers,  ya ya!  Thanks guys for I needed a kick in the butt & you were all there to give it to me & that's what friends are for.

 


Wednesday, September 15, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

 Martha & I arrived after Mass today.  I ran into Kathy after Mass & asked her to come to the center to see the new room.  She came to see the new Great Room & was impressed with the size & the decorations.  I'll miss Kathy & her See full size imagehusband Aaron, for they're moving to Buffalo, in October, to start a new life because Arron got a job ther.  They are such a nice couple & Arron & his friend Joe painted our general meeting room, a gorgeous green, about 4 years ago.  Thanks guys!  When I was speaking to Kathy, Martha came in & joined us, then a client came in to get some things in the Material Aid Room. I said good bye to Kathy & then went to assist our client in the clothing room.   After she went out of the center I said to Martha "please go to see if the abortionist is here today".  She went outside with the signs & the literature box & the mega phone to go into battle.  I asked her if it was okay with her I'd like to work in the office to catch up on some things & then I'll come right out to be with her on the front lines.  She agreed that was okay.  So I stayed in the center while Martha was outside, by herself, which we don't like to do.  I did a couple of things in the office to play 'catch up' & then went outside to be with Martha.  I looked in the parking lot & I didn't see the abortionist there, so I said "Martha, the abortionist isn't here"!  Just then the abortionist, Rachael Phelps drives out of the parking lot.  I hollered to her to stop killing little babies & to repent.  She just drove off acting like nothing she's doing is wrong.  Oh Lord help us!! 

 
A car with two women & 2 young children were driving out of the parking lot.  We called to them offering them free baby clothes.  The car pulled next to us & asked where we do we get the 'free' clothes.  I said "come follow me", which they did into the center.  As I brought them into the Material Aid Room & began speaking with them & one thing lead to another.  A few minutes later the one girl asked for a pregnancy test.  I said "why don't you follow me into the Rose Room, for the test" which she did.  I gave her instructions & then asked her questions for the Intake Sheet.  I found out that she was on See full size imageImplanon, here we go again.  This, like all contraceptives are, DANGEROUS & THEY ACT AS AN ABORTIFICANT.  Poor girl, I instructed her about this drug & gave her the brochure about it.  I also counseled her about abstinence, for she said that she new the Lord, or did she?  I finally told her that her pregnancy test was negative after she asked me what the results were, for I had looked at the results but failed to tell her, until she asked.  She was in a hurry & off she went with her Truth packet & some new information in her heart & mind.  The very best to you dear one. 
 
As I was about to return to the front lines the doorbell rang.  It was a mom, with one child & who has nothing & is due in November, with baby number two.  I told her that I was trying to reach her but I couldn't get through.  She said that she just had put some minutes on her cell phone.  I told her that we just got some more baby boy clothes & for her to shop around.  I said to the See full size imageyoung woman with her "can I help you".  She said that she was with her friend & that she needed diapers & wipes for her 2 year old twins, a boy & a girl.  I went into the office, where we have the supply of diapers, under the literature tables.  I found a couple of bags to give to the moms along with some baby wipes.  They were both very happy.  They picked out some nice things in the Material Aid Room for their children.  I was ready to be with Martha, on the front lines, when the doorbell rang again.  There at the door was  a young woman, & a cute little boy & an older man with long hair & a beard.  "May I help you" I asked.  "Yes, I need some clothes & diapers for my son".  "Come on in" I said & I lead them into the Material Aid Room for some shopping.  It turned out that she was a referral client.  She needed more assistance than we could give her but we had lots of referrals for her to call regarding 'Food Pantries' & free furniture, for her apartment, etc..  I said all you have to do is make some phone calls & here is a referral from the Focus Center, in case any organization needs one, then you'll have this to give to them to receive their assistance.  She & her father were very happy, to say the least.  I was happy to be able to help this nice mom & her son.  God bless this family. 
 
I went out to the front lines where Martha was by herself, saying her Rosary, God love her.  I discerned the situation & said to her "lets go inside now for the abortionist isn't here & there isn't many cars, thank God & it's a mess See full size imageinside the office & I'm hungry & ready to faint".  She said "okay" & we gathered everything on the sidewalk to take with us back to the center.  I stayed while Martha was putting thing away & out come a car, from the Planned Parenthood, parking lot.  I called over to her & offered her a Truth packet.  She said that she didn't believe in abortions & said that Planned Parenthood does.  She took the packet & smiled at me & said "thank you".  "No" I said "thank you".  As I was finished with this open minded woman of faith another car drove into the parking lot with a Rosary on her mirror.  When she got out of the car & lit into her about the hypocrisy of having a Rosary on her car mirror & going into Planned Parenthood.  When she drove out, about a few minutes later, for she went into the Administration Building entrance, she saw the graphic picture of Malachi & I said that they kill children here every day.  I saw that her face was effected, when she went face to face, with this aborted baby.  I felt that she had a heart & I pray that she'll never come back here again, through the grace of God. 
 
See full size imageI made a chicken sandwich , for Martha & I, & I heated up the last two potato skins, for our lunch.  We were about to sit down together to eat lunch when the doorbell rang.  Martha got up to answer the door, it was a pregnant young lady who was due with a baby girl in January.  She asked for some diapers so I went into the office to get her some newborn diapers & Martha stayed with her to assist her with some newborn clothes for her little one's arrival in December.   I went back into the gathering room & ate my lunch alone.  After this mom left Martha came into, the room, to eat her chicken sandwich lunch.  After lunch we went into the office to put diapers into a plastic bag of 12 diapers each, so that we can service our moms for a short time, until they can get the assistance they need for long term.   Just then Martha said "what time is it"?  I said that it was 4:15.  "Oh no" she said, I'm suppose to be at an InService meeting at 4:30 on Lake Ave..  As she rushed out of the center, I said to her "please be careful, okay Martha".   She turned around & said that she would.  "See you tomorrow", I hollered to her.  Wow, she just lost sight of the time, maybe I kept her to busy in the center. 
 
I went back to my messy desk & sorted out some papers & made some See full size imagephone calls, etc.  Just then the doorbell rang & it was Pat, our Monday afternoon counselor, dropping off some clothes for a client she saw & spent much time with on Monday.  I called the client & she was happy & said that she'll drop by on Thursday to get the clothes that Pat dropped off for her 11 year old son.  Thanks Pat, how thoughtful of you. 
 
Tucker came in at 4pm to witness outside in front of Planned Parenthood. He's been doing this for 12 years now every Wednesday, from 4-6pm.  He & I started the Focus Pregnancy Help Center in 2005 together.  He's faithful. 
 
The doorbell rang & it was Mike.  He answered my email requesting assistance in the Material Aid Room sorting out baby & children clothes & putting away the summer clothes & putting out the winter clothes.  He See full size imageanswered my call.  He gave me a hug & I showed him around.  He said that he'd like to put up some shelves in the office to better organize our room, free of charge.  Wow, what a surprise!  Thank you Lord of all your surprise, for there was another 2 surprises waiting for me in the next hour.  As we were working in the Material Aid Room putting the winter clothes in the baskets the doorbell rang.  I went to the door to greet a young woman asking for some baby clothes for her young son.  I said sure come on in & I lead her in to the clothing room.  I introduced her to Mike & gave her a bag to start shopping.  She was delighted.  She told me that a woman called out to her as she was walking her young son down the sidewalk & she called over to her that we had a stroller for her & Martha lead her into the center to receive the stroller. This incident touched her heart.  She came back to the center for more clothes for her son for the nice lady said that if I needed anything else just come on back.  I said that Martha had to go to an Inservice meeting & that she'd love to have seen you, so please come back another time.  She said that she would.  Martha would be so glad to see her again.  This was a touching experience, one of many, at the Focus Center.
 
See full size imageThe next surprise was that the carpet man called to say that instead of Monday to put down the carpet in the hallway & the meeting room how about this Friday?  "Sure, that would be great" I answered back.  This is a wonderful 2nd. surprise Lord! 
 
The next surprise was Tucker was leaving & when I was at the door saying "good bye" to him there was Dan coming down the parking lot heading right to the door of the Focus Center.  I said "I don't let strangers in, you know".  "Hi Dan", I'm so happy to see you, it's been about a month right"?  "Ha ha, did you forget I told you that I was working on the campaign for the party".  "Oh, I must have forgotten", I said, "sorry Dan, it's soooo good seeing you again"!  Are you here to work because if you are I have work for you to do.  "Okay See full size imagewhat is it"?  "I need you to put the diapers in the bags & label them the size that it is, okay".  "No problem Mary".  He was busy with the diapers & I was busy with the paper work when I looked up & there was my landlord.  "Hi Bernie, what brings you here tonight"?  "I was wondering if I could use these tables for the weekend"?  I said I would let you borrow them but they're not mine but you could use the tables that the literature is on".  "No, that's okay I'll rent some tables or just go See full size imageahead & buy some".  It's no problem, are you sure"?  "I'm sure", he said back.  I said that I was just thinking of calling him to give him next months rent early.  He said that he would appreciate it if I did.  So I wrote out a check for our first months rent of $1,800, this is now including our new Great Room that we got recently & got it ready for the '40 Days for Life" Rally this Tuesday from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.  He likes the room, it looks great, he said.  Thanks again Lord for this happened so quickly that I my head is still spinning.  After he left & then Dan left I stayed to do some more work until about 9pm & it was time for me to go home & to eat supper.  Busy & fruitful day :)
 
 

Thursday, September 16, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

I knew that today was going to be horrible & I was right!  Martha was taking her friend to the eye doctor for surgery, so it was just Bill, who will be 81 years old next week.  He was across the street & I was where I always stand See full size imagebuy the big bad bushes.  I think that someone gave them Miracle Grow.  I took just one sign & the literature box, for it was raining hard, ick!  Oh, I don't like the rain, to get all wet is icky.  I always bring a change of clothes with me now, smart right.  It's because I learned the hard way, I've been soaked, several times, & I had no clothes to change into, talk about real icky :(   So it was the Lord & I defending life today, just Him & me.  When I arrived, at the center, there was Rose & a client already waiting for me to open up the Material Aid Room.  Before I left to go outside I asked Rose if she could make me a sandwich & I gave her a couple of assignments, in the center. 

Off I go into battle & battle it was today, what else do I expect at an abortion mill.  I was now out on the sidewalk trying to call out to the girls, without the mega phone, because when it gets wet it doesn't work until it dries.  So I was using my wimpy female voice, the best I could.  Cars were coming in & out of Planned Parenthood & I called out to them offering them help at the Focus Center 2 doors down.  A young man was walking down the sidewalk with a See full size imageRosary around his neck.  I said to him "don't forget to pray the Rosary that you're wearing".  "This is my Lord's Cross", he said & then went into Planned Parenthood.  I was shocked but then I remembered him.  He gave me a hard time this past summer when I spoke to him he was quite belligerent, telling me that his mother works here at Planned Parenthood.  Now he seems to have a peace about him with no belligerence.  Maybe his mother will see a change in her son & get out of Planned Parenthood, for both of their sakes.  Hope so! 

Rose was good to bring me out the chicken sandwich & ice tea.  It seemed to See full size imagebe raining less & hopefully soon it will stop all together.  Yeah!  I thanked her & then I asked her if she could go inside, the center & bring me some more signs & the mega phone.  She said that she would.  She's terrific & such a blessing to the work of the Focus Center.  She works hours in the Material Aid Room  to sort out baby & children clothes & to help our moms select clothes, when they come in.  She also makes up our Truth packets & cleans the toys when they come in.  She is so good with people we love & appreciate her, so much. 

I was waiting to wolf down my sandwich so as not to miss anyone coming into this death mill.  It was time to take a bit of my sandwich , for I was growing faint but I knew when I did started eat my sandwich there would be someone to help.  Right again!!  I looked up & saw two young people, a boy & See full size imagea girl, on the sidewalk.  I started to speak to them with my mouth empty.  I showed them the pictures of the aborted children, that seemed to effect the young girl especially.  I asked then if they would like to come into the pregnancy center which was 2 doors down.  I was sure glad that Suzanne was now in the center.  The young girl said in a coy way, "we were just waking down the sidewalk" but then the guy was heading into the parking lot of the abortion mill.  I said to him to get out of the driveway, where do you think that you're going?  I new that she was pregnant because I showed her a rubberized baby at 12 weeks & she said quickly "is that what my baby looks like".  Oh yea, he or she does.  Through the grace of God it took me about 10 minutes to convince them to follow me into the Focus Center where Suzanne awaited to counsel them or anyone else I brought in to her.  I was so happy when they entered the 'hall of hope' at the center.  

After a little while a woman was walking into the vets, across the street with See full size imageher dog, hollered over to me saying "pro choice, pro choice, pro choice".  I hollered back to her "you mean pro death, don't you.  Oh little doggie your mom is going into the vets to have you aborted, sorry little doggie, I tried to stop her but she wouldn't listen, sorry".  She walked in & came out about an hour later & didn't say a word.  As she drove by I said for her to repent.  Off she went down the street, hopefully contemplating that life is precious.  She may think of her dog, as See full size imagebeing so special, but we know that people are more important, for we are created in the image & likeness of God.  Animals, are not, but they are a gift from God, to give us love.  For I know, I have a cat named Godfree.   
 

Now my trouble had just started.  A car drove into Planned Parenthood & as always I call out to the people in the car to tell them that we can help them & what Planned Parenthood is all about.  Two young girls came out of the car & said something to me but they were to far away tfor me to hear what the one girl was saying.  They both went into Planned Parenthood & were there for awhile.  When they came back out the one girl, who was the passenger, said something to me & again I was to far away to hear what she was saying.  I was now by myself for Bill had to go. The car was coming out of the parking lot & it stopped & the young girl, who was the passenger said to me, "why are you hear?  I'm a Christian so shut your blank, blank, mouth".  I said "no, you're not Christian maybe a pretend one but not a real one for a real Christian wouldn't speak that way".  Just then my cell phone rang & I said to her "just a minute I have to get this".  Believe it or not they waited until I got off the phone & then she continued to say "why don't you leave these girls alone you blank, blank".  I then said to her "your tongue is going to fall out, you need your mouth cleaned up".  Off they went into the sunset, only kidding but they finally did leave & went up the street towards E. Main St..  'The End', so I thought but I was wrong.  About a half hour later a car was coming very close to where I was standing on the sidewalk & I said "be careful, you're to close". Then I got all wet.  My sweet girl went to Wendy's to get a lemonade & See full size imagedidn't finish it so she thought that she would throw the rest of it out on my face, how nice of her.  The liquid hit my face & right eye, it felt sticky, it must have been lemonade, my favorite but only on a hot day.  I was by myself so I couldn't leave all the signs & literature box alone for someone to take or destroy it, so I couldn't leave.  It was about 10 minutes later just enough time for the two girls to go to the store to buy a bottle of water.  It again happened so fast, but this time she stuck her head out the car window to throw water at me from the bottle.  I was taking a call on my cell phone when the second hit came.  I called out to her saying "will you stop".  Maybe they thought that I was on the phone calling the police.  I wish I had more information but I didn't so I decided not to call the police.  These girls were probably 'post abortive', to say the least.  I wish that I could have helped them...... I called the center to ask if Suzanne could ring me put a bottle of water, not to throw at anyone, but to cleanse my right eye out.  She did & I then splashed it on my right eye, to rinse it out.  You should have seen the guy in the parking lot of the business right next door, the look on his face was priceless.  I wonder what he thought I was doing with the water.  He'll never know.  Thanks Suzanne for saving the day!!

I looked down the street & I saw an elderly man walking up the street with a large can in his hands, it looked like a paint can hut as he drew closer to me I See full size imagesaw that it up an open can that was empty.  I looked the other way briefly & when I turned back I saw that he was seated on the wooden ledge that surrounds Planned Parenthood's bushes. He mumbled a comment, about the graphic picture of the aborted baby, who was massacred by abortion, that was straight from Hell & for the first time ever, out on the front lines, I said for him to "shut up".  I had the crucifix & earlier I had said the Hail Mary prayer & the St. Michael the Archangel prayer, against the Evil One, now I was praying in tongues.  All of a sudden he is using a demonic voice & in a different See full size imagelanguage.  It was straight from the Exorcist movie.  I said "you have two seconds to leave before I call the police".  He immediately stood up & walked up the street to where ever.  This was another spittle attack against life, three times in less then 2 hours.  Thank you Lord Jesus for protecting me against the attacks from the Evil One.

Since I had Suzanne on the sidewalk & a few minutes later Elaine came to bring the chairs to the center I asked them both since it was around 4pm to help me carry the signs & literature box into the center, which they did. So God sent me 2 people to help me.  I was now in the center & Rose was helping another mother out in the Material Aid Room.  We served 6 moms on Tuesday & Wednesday & today, Thursday many more.  I was settling in when the doorbell rang.  I went to the door to see three young girls at the door.  I opened the door & asked if I cold help them.  The one girl said "I'd like a See full size imagepregnancy test, then the other girl said "I want a pregnancy test" & the other girl said "I need one too".  I invited them into the center & asked "how are you all related"?  The one girl said "we're all sisters". Something is wrong with this family dynamics.  I was glad that they came to the Focus Center where they will be safe & so will their children be too, if they are pregnant.  I brought them into the Rose Room & because there were three girls I asked them to fill out their own Intake Sheet.  I spoke with the girls & hem started to do the pregnancy tests.  The one sister was pregnant.  She was 15 years old & said that she's been dating her boyfriend for 5 years.  What!!  She's been dating him since she was 10 years old. Where was her parents??  She was open for life & so where her 2 sisters for they were excited in being Aunts & had already named the baby after them.  I spoke to the other two girls about abstinence.  The one girl said that she was going to now save herself for her husband.  The other sister hopefully will follow suit.  I said to them not to try to get pregnant because your sister is expecting just enjoy being Aunts.  They agreed. The one girl was hungry so I went & got each of them a snack & a bottle of water. They all took a Truth packet & I gave them the Growth & Development DVD & the 12 week of rubberized baby to take with them to witness to others.  I asked them to keep away from Planned Parenthood & they said that they were just over there today, probably just after I left to come into the center, & they told them See full size imagethat unless they were willing to terminate they wouldn't do a pregnancy test so they saw our sign on the sidewalk & came to Focus for assistance.  Which I'm glad that they did, thank God.  I asked what their parents would say about this news & the pregnant girl said that she will be all right with it & so will her boyfriend.  I said to her don't let anyone talk you into an abortion & she said that she wouldn't let anyone talk her into it.  This was good news.  I said for them to call me if they needed any assistance, for I'm only a phone call away.  I showed them the Material Aid Room & said for her to come back to get some nice things for her baby when she finds out if her baby is a girl or boy.  She said "thank you & I will".  I gave them Compass Care's phone number for an ultrasound & for STD testing which the other girls were inquiring about.  I hope that today their lives will change for the better & to make good choices for themselves, from now on.  A 'new life' was left alone to grow & be born, next year.  Yeah!! These girls were young & I hope & pray like all our girls that their parents will do better in showing good example & to teach their children better & how to respect their bodies & to be chaste & to enjoy their lives as teenagers & young people until they're married.
  
Great News at Focus!!!   Another precious baby has been born!  Little, or See full size imageshould  say our big baby Matthew weighed in at 8Lb. 11 oz. on September 14th., mother & child are doing well.  Mom has decided to breast feed.  For more information: http://www.breastfeeding.com/ & http://www.llli.org/nb.html.  Best way to feed your baby, if possible :)

 


Monday September 20, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

I arrives at the center at 9am to help paint the all purpose room a darker green.  It's alight green now & doesn't go with the new earthy toned rug that was just put in.  Frank was suppose to paint so I waited until 9:20 & then called Martha. Just then the doorbell rang & it was Frank & Jerry, I was so happy to see painter instead of one.  Well that changed real fast.  Frank took a look at the room & said that he couldn't paint today but tomorrow & Jerry wasn't to excited about painting alone.  Frank said that he would go home & gSee full size imageet the paint brushes & the drop clothes & the ladder so Jerry & I waited.  He really didn't want to do it so I argued with him until he said "yes".  Frank came back with all the paint stuff & left then Jerry & I argued a bit more & he told me to just go, so I did, I went into the new Great Room & took a 2 hour nap, among all the noise that woke me up about 10 times but I finally woke up refreshed to say the least.  I went into the other room & exclaimed what a great job Jerry did!  Even though it needed a second coat in some spots & he touched up the other wall even though it wasn't the same shade of green, but whose complaining.  I'll deal with all of that another day & time.  At least the room will be ready for the '40 Days for Life' Kick Off Rally tomorrow night, thank God.  Jerry left to go to church & I made a couple of phone calls first, before the noon Mass, one was to the carpet man Jason who knocked off $50 for our accountant's room, up the hall, because he got out all his furniture instead of the carpet men having to do it.  Yeah!  Then I called the landlord to ask him to come pick up the remnant rugs in the all purpose room & that I had his favorite drink for him as a thank you.  Enjoy See full size imageyour sweet Walter wine Bernie & thank you for the new rugs in the hallway & in the all purpose room.  Looking good.  He brought this guy with him that gave me the creeps.  He said some strange things & when we accidentally bumped into each other he made a comment like "oh we bumped into each other, oh wow".  Icky man...  He also said "are you planning to bring your bed in the new room"?  Duh, no I don't think so creepy guy.  Sexual comments make my skin crawl but I hold my own, not as a former victim, but as a survivor. 
 

After Mass I went to the second hand store to see if they had any pictures for our new wall.  They had nothing, boo hoo.  As I was going back to the center & decided that I must eat so the plan was to go to Wendy's then go to the See full size imagecenter to lots more work.  Well plans change quickly for as I was driving, not good, I got a call & it was a client saying that she was at the center right now.  I told her to wait & that I'd be there in 5 minutes.  When I arrived at the center I saw two girls waiting for me.  I let them in, one of the girls is our client, she brought in her friend for a pregnancy test.  As I was doing the test, she who is due in January, was freely shopping in our Material Aid Room, having a ball.  The pregnancy test & teaching was completed, then our newest client went into the Material Aid Room, to do some shopping for her 2 year daughter.  They both left very happy.  I asked our client to get me some brochures from Healthy Moms program, next to St. Mary's & she said that she would & she will bring them to me at the end of the week.  Thanks dear one.  Life is changing for her, praise God!!  Then after the two girls left the doorbell rang See full size imageagain & again & again.  I did 3 pregnancy tests & 10 people came & received clothing from the Material Aid Room, today.  First of all the center is closed on Mondays until 4pm & I didn't put out the sign, on the sidewalk, & we had all these wonderful people come & receive help & love & education here at Focus today.  God is Great!!  I finally ran out to get a hamburger at Wendy's for I was about to faint.  When I came back I prayed for help to get these 2 rooms ready for tomorrow.

My prayer was answered I received much help in getting everything done for tomorrow. Bill & Francis helped me out with the big things.  Thanks See full size imageguys!  Pat, our Monday evening counselor, Martha, who came later to help out, & myself had a Fund Raiser Meeting for about an hour & a half.  Very productive it was.  These ideas will help us to raise money for Focus so we can pay the rent & our other expenses.  Things are happening & God is blessing our ministry.  Both room plus the bathrooms look good for the Kick Off Rally...can't wait!!! 


Tuesday, September 21, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
& the '40 Days for Life' Kick Off Rally at the Focus Center
 
When Martha & I arrived at the center we were kept quite busy & didn't have a chance to get out on the front line until about 1:30pm, which broke my heart.  Being on the front lines is a matter of life & death, for the little ones.  It was frustrating, but we had several moms come in to receive baby & children clothes & diapers, which was important.  Sandy was there to help them for Rose didn't show up today, hope she is okay.  Donna called in sick, so she wasn't going to be there today on the front lines, & Mary S. is celebrating her 25th. Wedding Anniversary & is in California for 2 weeks.  So it was just Martha & I out on the front lines.  Jerry showed up much later, to pray.  Rick the '40 Days for Life' Coordinator came & around 1:10pm to start to set up for the rally at 5:30pm.  I was doing so many things that my head began to spin.  Well, Martha & I finally went out on the front lines.  I saw that the abortionist Rachael Phelps wasn't there but there could have been another abortionist there to take her place.  You just have to treat everyone like they were here for an abortion so as not to miss anyone, until you're told differently by the person.  Well that happened.  A car came out & stopped along side of us.  I popped my head near the car & began to witness what Planned Parenthood does in there.  They listened to both Martha & I.  I gave them a Truth packet & a DVD on Black Genocide,  The young girl & guy were all so nice & asked for a doctors name.  I went over to the literature box & got out our small list of pro life doctors to give to her.  She looked at it & said that 2 of the doctors would work.  Yeah!  They said "thank you" & then went into the vets parking lot to turn around.  We waved at them as they passed by us & they waved back to Martha & I.   They were open to the Truth, thank God, so now they have a 'New Beginning', through the grace of God.  It's the people that are closed minded that scare me.
 
I heard some noise down the street & saw that two guys were riding skate boards & hollering at Martha & I.  I hollered bSee full size imageack to them saying "do you want me to call the police"?  We've had trouble with guys on skate boards before.  They have spit on our signs & crashed into them & were nasty as they rode by us, so I was ready with my cell phone for anything.  They disappeared as they were crossing Gibbs St. pass our strip mall were we have our pregnancy center.  Bye boys just grow up & keep your nasty mouths closed.  No respect for 'life' which they enjoy.  Well I was wrong.  It was about 20 minutes later that one of the boys came passed Martha & I on his skate board mouthing off, right in front of us.   I wasn't going to mess around so I pretended to call the police right in front of him.  He quickly went down Wayland St. & disappeared, hopefully never for us to see him again, until he repents.  I love this scare method for it usually works.  Only 2 times in all my years it didn't work the abusers just stayed there until I could think up another way to get rid of them harassing us.  That's not bad, two out of a hundred. 
 
Now it was the girls turn.  It was a nasty female on a motorcycle stretching her wheels going into Planned See full size imageParenthood.  All I said to her when she puled into the parking lot & shut her noisy motor off was "your guilty, please come to the realization & get help, forgiveness & healing".  Into Planned Parenthood she goes.  She's there about less than 5 minutes & come out talking to the death escort Barry Swan.  I spoke to her again & she gunned her motor to drown me out, I mean the Truth.  As she passed by me I told her to "repent".  She didn't care to hear anything she was to busy making noise.   I hope that she makes it. 
 
A little while later Martha & I noticed that there was a tomato in the street near us.  Perhaps someone had thrown a tSee full size imageomato at us from the other side of the street when we were not looking & missed, for it wasn't there earlier.  Poor shot, thank God, now that would have been messy to clean up.  It was a hot day & both Martha & I were dressed for winter, so we were baking to say the least.  She later went home to take a shower & to put on lighter clothes because it was so very hot.  Mind you I'm not complaining for I'd rather be hot that cold.  Burr...    I did take off my sweater but I had a turtle neck underneath.  Maybe I should check the weather report before I go outside, next time. 
 
I was counseling the people in the cars that ride into Planned Parenthood with love & knowledge & I was by the fence calling out when all of a sudden I heard a loud voice from across the street say "Mary..., I know that you're a boy with a wig on".  See full size imageOh no my nemesis Jim.  My voice to him must appear deep though it's really not it's mostly high pitched.  I have long blonde hair am tall with green eyes & certainly look & act as a female.  Poor Jim, maybe he's thinking of some one else.  Then he said "Mary I'm going to call Fr. O'Malley to have him do an exorcist".  I called back to him saying "please get some new material, while trying to insult me, this is old stuff".  Just before this happened, my sweet friend Donna arrived, with her darling daughter Hannah who is 14 months old.  She didn't like what she heard him say to me so she decided to walk across the street & speak to him.  When she came back about 10 minutes later, all she said was, "Mary we'll have to pray for him".  I guess he was in the war & is confused to what we're all about in front of Planned Parenthood.  He said that he was a Christian. All I can say is that some one has failed him in his Church.  After Donna left I went across the street to see Jerry, who was on his knees praying, holding a crucifix, praying to end abortion.  Then I heard Jim say "Mary now what are you doing"?  I just stayed there & prayed.  I did say "God will take care of you".  He quivered at that statement.  All I mean is that God doesn't want you to persecute your brother or sister in the Lord & He loves those who He disciplines.  It wasn't a curse or anything like that.  We are all responsible with what we say & do & not do, including myself.  I have to forgive him, for that's what it is in being a Christian. 
 
A skuffy older man came walking up the street & he stopped to tell me that when he was 21 years old, his 17 year old girlfriend got pregnant, & she wanted an abortion.  He talked her out of it & his daughter is 37 years old now.  Thank God for him talking action in saving his daughter's life. This is great news!!   
 
I was standing on the sidewalk when I saw that a young woman had just come out of Planned Parenthood.  I hollered over to her offering her the Truth packet.  She walked over to me, with no expression on her face & I smiled at her & gave her the packet without saying a word, I asked her no questions, which was very unusual for me.  Nothing came out of my mouth. I later regretted that I had asked her no questions but I have to believe that the Holy Spirit was in charge & not me.  After she took the packet she walked back over to the other side of the sidewalk, then walked up the street probably to catch a bus.  I was just so happy that she took the packet.  Well, she has been in my life ever since.  More to come on tomorrow's Front Line Weekly.  I left the sidewalk to get ready for the Board Meeting & the Kick Off Rally, for the '40 Days for Life' in our new Great Room at Focus!! 

 At the Board Meeting we voted our newest member to the Board tonight.  Rob is our longest acting male sidewalk counselor, in front of Planned Parenthood. Rob & I have been there for almost 15 years now.

  
The people were coming in to the Focus Center for the Kick Off Rally for the '40 Days for Life' which will be in front of Planned Parenthood at 114 University Ave. in Rochester, NY.  For 40 days there will be people in front of the abortion facility praying to end abortion there & all over the world.  We had the walls painted & the new carpet put down & the room looks great.  What a blessing it has been for our center which is expanding.  Rick, the Rochester Coordinator, came in early to set up the tables  & chairs & the sound system for the 3 testimonies which were to follow the buffet meal & a blessing by Fr. Brian Carpenter, from Peace of Christ Church.  Pat, our grandmother & great grandmother of the 2 almost aborted babies, was first to give her testimony & what a testimony she gave.  Pat had brought the 2 precious babies with her & Fr. Brian & I were holding them & the Catholic Courier photo journalist took the pictures.  Check out: http://www.peaceofchristparish.org/focus.php &
The second testimony was from Doriena, who had been raped when she was a teenager, & her mother made her have an abortion.  She became post abortive & years later had 2 more abortions.  She deeply regrets having her 3 children killed by abortion & now is married with 5 living children.  I said hi to her for she remembers me from another time when I shared with her that I conceived twins from my rape back in 1971 & lost them by a normal miscarriage, which greatly affected me.  After the 2 powerful testimonies Rick showed a DVD of Abby Johnson's testimony, she was the Director of Planned Parenthood, who left when she was asked to assist at an abortion in her facility, at Bryan/College Station, Texas, 1 year ago.  Check out:  http://40daysforlife.com/blog/?p=1202 for more information in regards to her testimony.  We had a blessed time with friends & food & sharing.  What an evening at Focus!! 

 


Wednesday September 22, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
(As I look back on this day, for it is mostly a blank, for the only thing I was consecrating on was to save her life & her baby's life, through the grace of God.  She became such a challenge to me, over the next couple of weeks, which was a life changing experience for her & I). 
 
Martha, Carole & I were standing on the sidewalk, like we usually do, praying & counseling when a girl came walking up the street.  I recognized her pants for the day before.  They had the logo on it MCC on the leg of the pants.  When the girl came up closer I asked her if she was here yesterday & she said "yes".  Then Martha said to her "are you hear for an abortion"?  The reply from the woman was "yes".  "Oh no" we all said at once.  She said "I don't want it".  Martha talked to her mostly for I was still in shock, for she was the girl that I handed the truth packet to yesterday afternoon & didn't say anything to her or ask her any questions, before going into the center for the Board Meeting & the Rally. I wasn't in a hurry when she approached me yesterday I just saw that her face & thought that I was glad that she came over to me to accept the packet.  She then said that she had put the RU 486 inside her.  I asked if I could show her a picture of what her baby looks like at 7 weeks & to follow me into the pregnancy center, which she did.  I brought her into the Rose Room & talked to her asking if I could call the doctor & to take her to the doctor for him to remove the pills.  She said "no, I don't want it".  I thought to myself, please stop saying that.  I showed her the Growth & Development DVD & the rubberized 12 week old baby & other pictures too.  I gave her the doctors list & asked for her to call one of them to have the abortion pills taken out.  I then read to her the powerful poem 'My Life Depends on You'. Check Out:
http://il.youtube.com/watch?v=xHEnVupp17k&feature=related.  She started to cry.  I was hopeful then.  I spoke to her about the adoption program & she said that if she was going to have the baby then she would raise the baby but you still don't understand, she said to me, 'I don't want it".  My heart had dropped to my ankles.  As she left I asked her again to call the doctor & she said "maybe I will, I don't know yet".  I was a little hopeful for the first time.  As she was walking down the street I just hollered to her "we love you", "we love you", "we love you".   I cried & then walked slowly back to the front lines to be with Martha & Carole.  We discussed this situation.  I went to the computer, in the Focus Center's office, to email everyone so that they would pray for her & her precious, innocent baby.  They did.  The rest of the day was very difficult for I had no way to reach her.  I didn't ask for her to fill out an Intake Sheet because & I didn't want her to get up & leave.  She, if she needed me to reach me anytime, that she knew.  So it was up to her to contact me or not.  Talk about suffering, for the Lord.  If the Lord needed this kind of suffering then so be it to save the lives of both mother & child. 
 
The rest of this day was very difficult.  We did help other mothers who were open to life, by counseling them in the center, & we gave away many baby & children clothes in the Material Aid Room too.  Two moms came in with some of their children & the one mom was due soon with a baby girl.  Between the 2 moms they had 12 children between them.  Needless to say that they took a lot of things emptying 3 baskets of clothes.  Martha helped them in the room & told the kids to pick up the toys, that they had put on the floor before leaving, which they did.  They took at least 3 full bags of clothes, which is fine, for their families.  We are here to help.
 
The three Elim Institute Students came today & so did their director Helen came to meet me & to talk to me.  I kept the girls busy by dividing the diapers packages, by putting  half of them into a plastic bag, for our moms.  This way we could stretch our diaper supply so we can always have enough for all our moms who come in for them.  We are working on a Grant & also for Wegmans, to help the center out, with diapers, baby wipes & formula.  So much to do & hardly no time to do it all.  We ran out of plastic bags & Helen went out to purchase more for us.  Sandy, who helps us out on Tuesdays in the center, had just come in for a visit & she went with her to the Dollar General on Main St., she was glad of that for she doesn't live in Rochester but she said that she had a good sense of direction.  Better you than me, that's for sure.  They came back about 20 minutes later with 8 cartons of plastic bags.  Thanks so very much Helen.  The girls kept on going, going & going some more.  No one came in to the Material Aid Room for clothes until after they left.  Maybe next week girls, for the experience.  They are so kind & helpful & we are blessed to have them with us.
 
After the girls left at 6:30 pm Martha & I ate, hardly to say the least, for this pregnant girl, who had the RU 486 pills in her, that I had asked her name & she told me but I was to stressed out to remember it. (I asked her again when I saw her what her name was & I'll call her Ms. C. for privacy sake).  She was on my mind, that's for sure.  Pray, pray & pray some more I told everyone.  As a sacrifice for the Lord, I gave up my shot of Brandy, before bedtime for her & her baby, who is in danger of being killed by these deadly pills. Please check out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcgeR3hSM5Q
  

 
Thursday September 23,2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
We were on the sidewalk witnessing when all of a sudden I saw the young woman, that had taken the RU 486 pills, was walking down the street.  I recognized her immediately & she approached us.  All this happened so fast my head was spinning.  She said to me that Planned Parenthood won't give her anesthesia for the abortion so she wanted the pills to be taken out.  Oh my God it's happening!!  I quickly brought her to the center where Suzanne, our Thursday counselor was, & asked her to call the doctor to tell him that we were on our way.  Our regular doctor was out of town though so we called our other referral doctor.  He said to bring her right over.  I asked Martha to come with me for my legs were like jelly.  She told the other people, that were on the sidewalk praying, that she was leaving & for them to take over & off we went to the doctors office who is off of Genesee St..  The traffic was horrible, poor Martha was stopping at every light it seemed & there was road work ahead of us.  At one point the young lady said that she wanted to go home until Martha told her that women can die from these pills.  She said "how".  I quickly told her that they bleed to death.  She changed her mind about going home & we were at the doctors office about 10 minutes later.  We all got out of the car & went into the office where they took her to the back room to wait for the doctor, who was there ready to 'save a life'.  Martha & I waited in the waiting room until I couldn't stand the stress any longer & decided to go for a walk down Warwick Ave. which is right next to the doctors office.  I wanted to see the house where I lived when I was 6 years old when I was in second grade at St. Augustine's Catholic Church, which is now closed.  I made my First Holy Communion at that church.  I walked gingerly down the street looking at every house to find the one that I lived in.  I saw an elderly Black woman sweeping her driveway & decided to stop to talk to her.  This encounter was such a joy to my heart.  A wise & wonderful woman she was.  I told her that I once lived on this street about 54 years ago.  She said that she didn't live there then even though she has been there for many years.  She said that she lost her husband about 7 years ago & once worked at Strong in the Labor Room helping to deliver babies.  I asked if she assisted with abortions & she said "no baby, I wouldn't have done that".  Don't you love her.  Her next door neighbor came out & joined us.  I spoke with her for a few minutes & asked her to take care of Gwen, that was her name, & she said that she does.  I smiled & was happy to hear this.  I said "good bye & God bless" & continued to walk down the street to find the house.  I did.  I just stood there looking up at the window that was once my bedroom.  It was a duplex & we lived upstairs.  I just keep on looking & the people who were sitting on their porch next door started to look at me.  I said to them that I used to live in this house when I was 6 years old & I asked them some questions & they answered me.  I was afraid to leave Martha in the doctors office by herself for very long so I looked at the neighbors & said "what happened in this house shouldn't have happened to any child", for I was molested, by my father, in that house.  I walked back to the doctors to be with Martha.
 
We waited for the procedure of the pills to be taken out for about 45 minutes & we were talking to the patients that were waiting for the doctor not knowing what was going on, for he took our girl right away.  He came out of the examining room & I spoke with him & he said to pray for her & her baby.  I said that was a given & thanked him for taking her right away.  He said "no problem" & he walked back into the examining room.  She came out about 10 minutes later.  I asked her how she was doing & she said that she felt better once the pills were removed.  I was glad to hear his.  I thanked the office people for their cooperation in this urgent matter & said good bye & we all left.  When we got into the car our young lady said "I need a cigarette".  You got to be kidding, I thought, not another way to wreck this baby.  She was so stressed out that Martha & I thought, that this once, it might be better to let her have one, so I bought a pack of cigarette's & gave her just 1.  I went into a corner store on W. Main St. & asked for a pack of Newports & this young person appeared.  I asked him how old he was & he said 15.  I said that I didn't think that 15 year olds were to suppose to sell cigarette's.  He said that it was okay & if it wasn't he'd still do it.  That's another problem for another day.  (Days later I spoke to my police friend & he said that it was illegal & it can reported it to the Dept.of Tobacco Firearms and Alcohol)   She smoked it in the car with the window down.  As we were driving down Hudson Ave. the street where they shoot people all the time she asked for Martha to stop to get chicken wings.  Are you kidding I thought to myself.  Martha said "yes just tell me where to stop".  Well she was a help!!  The fun never stops!  We stopped at a Chinese Take Out that had chicken wings of course.  Her & I got out of the car while Martha was waiting in the car.  She put in an order & so did I for at this time Martha & I were hungry too.  While she was waiting for her order to come up a little girl around 7 years old waved at her.  She made a comment saying "see the little girl she just waved at me & I don't even know her".  The Lord was showing her the love of a child, to soften her heart for her child growing inside of her.  We then took her home with the understanding for her to call us if she needed anything & to call the doctor, in a couple of days, to schedule an ultrasound & exam.  She said that she would do it.  Martha & I drove back to the center to eat our Chinese chicken wings & they were good.  What a day as we praised God for all that He did through us, to save the life of His children, both hers & her baby's.  We told everyone, who were still praying, in front of Planned Parenthood, to pray some more for this situation & I sent out a prayer request to my email list also.  
 

 
 
Friday, September 24, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
I received a call from our new client Ms. C. & she wants to get out of her abusive house with her parents.  I then called a person that I met about 4 weeks ago after the noon Mass at Our Lady of Victory Church.  She asked what I do & I said that I am the director of a pregnancy center.  She said that she has taken in pregnant girls in her home.  I was so happy to hear this & I took down her name & phone number, so when our new mom called saying that she needed to find a place to live temporally I though of her.  I called her & she said for me to come to look at the room this evening at 7pm.  I called Ms. C & set up a time to pick her up to take her to see the room.  I picked her & her girlfriend & Ms.C around 6:30pm & drove them over to see the house off of St. Paul Blvd..  When we arrived we were greeted by Beverly & she showed us the room upstairs.  The room was very small but durable to the situation.  Then she said that she had a male tenant down the short hall.  She assured us that there would be no privacy issue but I felt uncomfortable with this surprise.  I remembered that she said that there was another room downstairs so I asked to see this room.  The room was off of the kitchen & had a powder room next to it.  It was by the back door which a porch, which was nice.  Beverly had no real rules to live in her home.  No curfew & your own key, just clean up after yourself which was a given.  This seemed like a wonderful place for our Ms. C to move into to get away from the chaos where she is now for her sake & that of her baby.  I & she & her friend were very happy.  Ms. C told Beverly that she will take it & asked when she could move in.  Beverly said how about Sunday at 2pm, we all agreed.  We thanked Beverly & left.  The girls were hungry so I stopped at Price Rite in a very bad neighbor because that's were is was, at least they had a policeman there walking around.  Oh boy!!
 

 
Sunday, September 27, 2010
 
Ms. C. made arrangements to move into the house that we went to on Friday.  She was suppose to move in at 2pm but changed the time to 9pm.  I called Martha so that she could go with me.  We made arrangements to meet at the center around 8:30pm, Martha is not a night person so this was very nice of her.  When she drove into the parking lot I noticed that her front right head light was out.  We debated what to do but figured that if she drives carefully we will be all right, until she can get it fixed the next day.  We took her car because it's bigger & holds more because Ms. C will be bringing all what she owns with her to the new place from her old home, otherwise we would have taken my smaller car.  We then picked up Ms. C with all her heavy bags & suitcases & we were off to her new beginning in her life once she decided to 'chose life' & had the RU 486 abortion pills taken out of her.  Martha & I were happy for her.  Well things can change real fast in life so always be ready but always trust in God for He is in control & loves us & His ways are not are ways for He is Wisdom & Love & Truth.  We got to the house off of St. Paul Blvd. & Beverly wasn't there like she was suppose to be.  Her male tenant answered the door puzzled when we said that we were here to have Ms. C move in.  He said that he new nothing of that arrangement for all he knew was that another man was gSee full size imageoing to stay in the empty room upstairs were he had a room & the room downstairs was going to be Beverly's pregnant niece's room.  He called Beverly on the phone to make sure about the arrangements & he was right.  How could she not have called us to tell us that the plans have changed??  Ms. C was very upset to say the least & called one of the shelters & she couldn't get in because of a sanction that was against her plus they had no room available either.  Oh Lord what are we to do at 9pm on a Sunday.  She said to Martha who was driving See full size imageto take her to the park & I said "no you're not going to the park to sleep".  She said "don't tell me what to do" & got out of the car & ran like a gazelle down the street.  I hollered for her to stop for I can't run do to health issues but I did see from afar that she turned left at the corner, so I went back into the car to tell Martha so that we could pick her up.   Martha was backing out of the driveway & almost hit the tree behind her, she tried several times to straightened out until she told me to put my head down, which I did then she got out of the driveway safely.  She drove down the street & I told her to make a left & then we spotted our girl & stopped the car & asked her to come back into the car so we can try to make arrangements for tonight.  After talking about what just had happened the decision was made that Ms. C would spend the night at Martha's apartment.  We were trying to settle down because we were all upset with what had happened at Beverly's house. 
 
Next stop was the center.  Martha had to bring me back to get my car.  She made a turn down Hudson Ave. with police behind See full size imageher.  The siren & lights were shinning, just like the movies, but this was real.  Martha stopped instead of having a car chase on Hudson Ave. one of the worst parts of town even where the police get shot.  We were surrounded & the flashlights were now shinning in the car looking for whatever, which we don't do.  Martha rolled down the window, to a woman police officer which meant business, which I can't blame her in that neighborhood but if you look at Martha all you see is sweetness, until she told me to shut up because I was laughing iSee full size imagen the back seat.  It was a nervous laugh because I just couldn't imagine what could happen next.  She later said that she was sorry & I apologized to her for stressing her out more & being irritating, which I sometimes can be :( 
I rolled down the car window & said to the male police officer with the flashlight if he knew Officer Mike P?  I said this because I felt like a criminal, at this point, & I wanted the officers to know that we know one of their own but not everyone knows everyone, so it didn't help.  Sorry Officer Mike.  The officer asked Martha to show her license & registration & insurance card which she did & then asked her if she new why she was being stopped.  Martha told her it was because of her front headlight which was out & that she just found out about tonight & couldn't do anything about it until tomorrow.  The officer went back to her car to check out Martha & then came back with a ticket & told her that if she gets her car fixed tomorrow that she could send the proof in to get the ticket taken away.  Sounded good to Martha who was about to scream, with all that had taken place in such a short period of time late at night, & the night wasn't over with yet.  After the police had left to fight crime on the streets of Rochester, which is very dangerous & our prayers are with them, you could hear a pin drop in the car.  I don't remember if we talked at all but I think that we did.  We got to the center safe & sound & I got out & thanked Martha for all that she did this evening & to tell Ms. C that everything will work out just be patient & we are hear for her at all times & I said good bye & left.  I went into the center to do some work then went home around 12 midnight.  Tomorrow was another day.
 


 Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

I entered the center for the main door was ajar, which it shouldn't be because anyone can walk right in & maybe do harm.  In this case it was a young girl who in the hallway & I asked what I could do for her.  She said that she was looking for the Realtor up the hall to confront him because of her apartment situation.  He wasn't there so I asked if she had any children & she said that she had two but her ex husband & mother are taking care of them because she was in jail.  She sSee full size imageaid that she was in jail for a fight nothing more.  "Okay" I said.  Then I noticed that her blouse was about to fall from her shoulders & she didn't have a bra on so I brought her into the Material Aid Room to find something that would cover her up.  She found a pullover & a light jacket to go over it.  I was glad that now she wouldn't accidentally expose herself to the public by shear innocence.  She seemed to be a nice girl that just had some bad things happen to her & she needs to find someone that cares.  She also took some nice things for her 2 children.  I hope that she can work out the problem with the Realtor.  Just after she left Martha came in to get the signs & literature box to take with her to the front lines.  I joined her & then Carole came, a short time later.  So it was us three until Tucker, Robert & Linda came later.  Before the other three people came I was using the mega phone in the parking lot, at this time there wasn't anyone coming or going to their car I was just talking on the mega phone giving out information about the evils of Planned Parenthood.

Just then a woman, who was parked right next to where the abortionist always parks, got out of her car & started ranting & raving.  I just kept on giving her the facts about abortion & See full size imagewhat Planned Parenthood does in there to innocent babies & their mothers, especially the African American culture.  Some might disagree but I really didn't want to hear what she was saying I wanted her to hear the facts & the Truth, to educate herself.  Lots of luck.  She got back into her car after about 3 long minutes of verbal sparing between the two of us.  She moved her car right to where we stand by the bushes.  "Oh No"  Or maybe I should say "bring it on".  She parked & got out of the car & said to me who was standing by the fence "do you know who I am"?  "No" I said & she began to rant & rave on & on & on.  At the end she never told me who she was.  Some of the ranting was about showing the graphic signs to children.  Here we go again just like yesterday when the girl with the tattoos & gross ear lobe stretching earrings said the same thing.  We are not out here to traumatize the children but to save the children from being murdered by Rachael Phelps & all others at Planned Parenthood through chemical & surgical abortions.  What these pictures does is to convict the adults who blame it on the children.  It's called transference.  Tucker when he came tried to talk to her, so did Carole & Linda, but the lady just kept on going like the, generalized bunny.  The neighbor Sue Bovay came out to look to see what was going on, poor lady.  I went across the street with a graphic sign to stand next to Robert who was holding the graphic sign Malachi so when she came out she had to look at these pictures to see the horror of abortion.  The 3 year old in the car can't process what is going on & is probably looking down or out the side window.  This is between us adults that can't face the Truth about abortion & what Planned Parenthood does in there.  Stop compromising & betraying your race.  I'm not trying to be mean but I try to make people realize what is really going on at Planned Parenthood. Maybe it's to hard for anyone to believe.  I know it's hard for me.

One woman hollered out her window "Planned Parenthood saved my life".  I said "Planned Parenthood kills children & God saved your life".  God turns evil & makes it for good.  He's not See full size imagegoing to punish someone for the evils of Planned Parenthood.  She never told me the whole story she just drove away.  Enough said.  Maybe they caught in time an Etopic pregnancy or caught some type of breast or cervical cancer?  My question to Planned Parenthood is why can't you help woman by NOT killing their children or filling them up with birth control's steroids that does hurt them????  It's MONEY that what it is & an agenda of Population Control & Black Genocide.   Not reporting statuary rape, just gives them more power against the victim, so if she's pregnant they can do an abortion on her.  More $$$.  They are EVIL & that's that.  I rest my case. 

Two girls were walking up the street & Carole & I stopped them to talk to them.  They were effected by the pictures of aborted babies.  The girls who said that they were sisters didn't believe in abortion put the one sister said that she was going into Planned Parenthood for Birth Control.  Carole & I told then about what it really does to the baby that can be conceived & to their bodies too.  They took a Truth packet but walked right into Planned Parenthood.  They came out about less then 10 minutes later & I asked the one girl if she got the Birth Control.  She said "no".  Thank God & I know that He used her sister to help change her mind.  I only hope & pray that she stays strong & also her younger sister too.  One girl & life at a time.

The Material Aid Room was a buzzing with so many moms who were blessed in the room today.  Martha was doing a pregnancy test & while she was in the Rose Room oSee full size imageverseeing the test, her hand that she fell on in the bathroom earlier this morning, started to stiffen up & become very painful.  After the client had left she went to the freezer to get an ice pack & a couple of Advils, for the pain.

When Tucker had come to peacefully protest he told us that his father had died last night at the hospital.  He was 91 & was the father of 10 children & a good husband & father to his cSee full size imagehildren.  May he rear in peace.  I gave my condolence to Tucker & his family during this very difficult time, even though they had expected it for awhile,  Death is still unexpected, when it arrives never the less, it is a heartache, for those who are left behind.  We still need to grieve our loss no matter how old the person is.  Crying is okay & highly recommended in the grieving process.  

Martha &  I were about to eat, it was around 5:15pm, for she had to go to her family's house for a birthday party at 6pm, when the doorbell rang.  Rose said a girl & a guy were at the See full size imagedoor & she was asking for a pregnancy test.  I looked at Martha & asked her if she would do it. I knew that she would the best choice for right now.  She took a bite of her sausage sandwich, for she was hungry, & off she went into the Rose Room to assist our new client. I was half dead but I didn't let on, so I felt she was better than I would be, at this time, even though she probably didn't think so.  I felt badly for her hand was hurting her.  We do take turns, as much as possible, giving the pregnancy tests, but not always.  When she came out of the Rose Room, after the client & her boyfriend hSee full size imagead left, she came right into the kitchenette to finish off her sausage sandwich & homemade home fries, that I had made & brought in for our supper. She wasn't mad at me, Martha has a good heart.  I have to make decisions & I try to make the right ones, through the power of the Holy Spirit, everyday here at the Focus Center.  I pray for guidence to do the right thing at all times & whe I fail I ask for forgiveness & help to do better. "Pride before the storm'.  When Martha left to go to her party, I worked half dead, until about 9pm.  At this time, most of us pro lifers are suffering with something or another.  Most of us are in some kind of pain or discomfort.  This is good.  It means that the Devil is threatened by what God is doing through us, & we are under attack from thSee full size imagee Enemy, who has no power over us, for we are covered in the Precious Blood of Jesus & in the Mantel of the Blessed Mother, for protection.  Earlier this afternoon Linda, who was out on the front lines, was reading the Exorcism Prayer, against the Evil One.  We also pray the Rosary & say the Divine Mercy prayer, out on the front lines, to come against the power of the Enemy, who lies & tries to destroy us pro lifers & all people. 

Wounded soldiers for Christ,who will restore our souls & bodies,to keep on fighting the good fight, in saving lives for Him.   


Thursday, September 30, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

A car drove in with a young girl & guy.  I called to them & pleaded with them not to have their baby killed.  They didn't lSee full size imageisten & went right in.  The guy came out & sat in the car the whole time.  She came out about two hours later & when they drove out she gave me the 'bird'.  How very sad for her & for him.  Their hell has now begun.  Why didn't they listen to the Truth spoken, the words of help for them.  Now they are to suffer for taking an innocent life that was just created by God. 

I looked down the street & I saw Carole walking towards me.  Yeah!!  God heard my plea.  For she'll be with me on the front lines today.  She brought Cleveland, our street person, who we See full size imagehave adopted, a new jacket & she had bought him new shoes, socks, pants & a shirt yesterday.  He put on his new jacket & he was so happy.  Carole's going to get him long underwear next.  He's a new man.  She also gave him some $$ & when he came back, later on, he smelled like beer.  I guess he wanted to celebrate his new clothes.  A leopard doesn't usually change his spots.  We love & accept Cleveland just where he is.  Martha was in the center calling our clients that 'chose life' to see how they were doing & if they needed anything. She had her hand in See full size imagea bandage & she couldn't get it wet so she stayed in the center today. She made me a sandwich, for I was faint like, & she brought it outside where I was. She wrapped her hand in a plastic bag.  Thanks Martha for the nourishment.  Rose came later & helped out, in the center.  She works so hard 3 days a week & we are blessed in having her.  She likes chocolate so I will get her some as a 'thank you' for all the things that she does, at the Focus Center.  We couldn't do without her.

Robert, a new '40 Days for Life' recruit, came to be a witness on the front lines this afternoon.  He holds a graphic sign See full size imageMalachi, right across the street, so when people leave Planned Parenthood they will see him.  Someone that's not afraid to show the Truth about what is going on at Planned Parenthood.  It is refreshing, to say the least.  Welcome Robert.  He looks like Indiana Jones. 

It was 4pm & Carole had to leave & Martha wanted me in the center so we could eat & get ready to go see our little Birthday See full size imageboy, Khy-Meir, who is 1 years old today.  He was almost aborted last year by the RU486 abortion pill.  Pat, the grand mother, had pulled into the parking lot of Planned Parenthood & came out of her car & walked over to me, on the sidewalk, holding a graphic sign.  She walked over to me saying "I don't want my granddaughter to do that".  I replied "I don't want her either, come follow me".  I lead her into the Focus Center to be counseled by Suzanne & Maria.  Maria took her to our doctor & he took out the abortion pills & saved the life of little Khy-Meir, who just had about an half an hour to live.  Praise God!!  We have been blessed to be apart of this family ever since. 

Just before we left, the doorbell rang, & it was one of our mothers that 'chose life' out on the front lines.  She was walking into Planned Parenthood, with her friend, who is now our client, & she changed her mind after receiving a Truth packet & seeing the graphic sign Malachi.  Her baby is due See full size imageOctober 10th..  Yeah!  Her & her mother came into the center to receive some nice things that we just received from the 'Baby Shower' at the Church of the Assumption.  What great gifts from these fine people, all brand new.  After they left the doorbell rang again.  It was a girl & a guy wanting a pregnancy test.  Martha & I were just about to sit down to have our supper.  I asked Martha if she could do the pregnancy test.  She took a bite of her sausage sandwich & went into the Rose Room to assist these fine people.  She later said that the girl wanted to go into Planned Parenthood, to get the Morning After Pill, but they saw our sign & they came here instead to get the help that they deserved.  The boyfriend heard some bad things about Planned Parenthood & he didn't want her to go there.  Oh really!!  Hopefully the word is getting out.  My goal is to ruin the reputation of Planned Parenthood by telling the people the Truth about it. That should do it. 


 

 Sunday, October 3, 2010 at the Focus Center "Respect Life' Sunday & "Life Chain" Sunday

I got an early call from Christine, our pregnant girl, who 'chose life' a week ago by having Martha & I take her to the doctors to get the RU486 abortion pills out of her & she needed a ride to the shelter, from her mothers house.  She said that she will be waiting on the front steps.  I quickly got up & dressed but before I left I got a call from Martha saying that her car broke down on the rode yesterday & she has no car.  Plans quickly changed.  I had to much in my car to hold Martha, Christine & her bags so I needed first to go to the center to drop off the signs for the 'Life Chain' & the donuts & cider & other things, to make room for everybody, in the car.  I called Christine to tell her to hold on that I would get there to pick her up as quickly See full size imageas I could.  I'm driving on the expressway then my cell phone goes off.  I had to get it out of my pocket & to my ear answering it with much excitement.  I always think that it is an emergency & I must learn to let it ring & it can go to voice mail & I will get the message when I'm stopped.  You can't kill someone to save someone!!  You can't use the cell phone while driving.  If it's for a pregnancy test then I will get the message & will call the girl back but I don't want to kill anyone on the rode when I'm going to do something good.  It was someone who wants to donate children's clothes to the center.  I told him my situation & quickly got off the phone.  I was now in the city to go straight to the center, so I thought.  Oh no!!  There were police blocks on every corner for a Breast Cancer 'Walk for Hope'.  I found the next entrance to the expressway & went 15 minutes out of my way to pick up Christine.  I finally got to her house & got her in the car & went to the center the back way.  We emptied the car & then went to pick up Martha at her apartment in Gates.  Christine got some more of her clothes that she left at Martha's a week ago, when she stayed there, after leaving her mothers' house.  We were all hungry & Ms. C needed some minutes for her phone, that we will provide for her, during this very difficult time, so we headed to the store for the minutes for her cell phone & new coat for it is cold outside.  We got to the store & we got the minutes but this large store didn't have the coats out on the rack now, in October!!  What are you waiting?  They start to have Christmas items out in the end of October.  Well thank God, for I had just bSee full size imageought a jacket & had worn it only twice & it was in the trunk of my car.  It fit Christine very well & looked good on her too.  Yeah!!  Now she has phone minutes, a new warm jacket & a new home, for her 'new life' today.  Let's go eat.  We went to a Greek restaurant & had a very good lunch.  It was time to get Christine to the shelter.  It was a private shelter so we couldn't go on the elevator with her.  Martha & I gave her a big hug & said "good bye & we are there for you at any time so please just call us".  She said "thank you & good bye".  We felt relieved that finally See full size imageour girl was in a safe & warm place until she can get an apartment of her own, & get ready for her baby to be born next year.  We will see her through & have a Baby Shower for her next year too.  Today is a 'new beginning' for dear Christine.

Martha & I were on our way to the center to get ready for the 'Life Chain' which will start at 2pm to 3:30pm.  When we aSee full size imagerrived to the center we got things ready & put out the coffee.  The people started to arrive & they signed in & received their sign & then walked up University Ave., to E. Main St. to witness to 'life'.  The cars that drive by have to see people standing, side by side in a line, with a life message, about abortion, on the sign that they are holding to witness to the public.  I was standing in front of the center to be there if some one comes late to join the line.  I was holding a sign which read 'Women are Hurt by Abortion' when a young man approached me & said that he wanted to donate some money to the pro life movement, then he reached See full size imageout his hand & handed me some change.  I counted it out later & it was 92 cents.  How sweet.  It was like the Widow's mite in the Bible.  He said that he will donate more in the future, since now he knows where the pregnancy center is located.  Okay dear Paul.  How touching was this donation, from the heart.

It was 3:30pm & the pro lifers where coming back from E. Main St. to drop off the signs & to go to socialize in the center with sSee full size imageome cider & donuts.  It was so good to see all the pro lifers & to spend some time with them.  I was told by one of See full size imagethe ladies that a man from Ethiopia had stopped her to tell her that he worked for the Planned Parenthood Federation in Ethiopia.  He said that he refused to promote abortions & was dismissed.  I met him next door at Mack's store when I returned the coffee container.  I introduced myself to him & brought him over to Focus & had him meet Martha, who was now the only one left.  We spoke with him for awhile & I asked him if he would give his testimony after the Mass that we are having on Wednesday this Wednesday at 6:30pm.  He said "yes".  We exchanged our phone numbers & he left.  I will call him to confirm the date & time.  I do hope that he will be able to come on Wednesday for all the pro lifers to hear hi powerful testimony.  What a day!!  Martha & I then went into the Material Aid Room to put away some children's clothes that I had taken home to wash & brought back to the center.  After that we went to Webster to pick up a double stroller for a client of ours.  I took Martha back home & then went home myself to eat then go to bed for it was a very busy & fruitful day.  Praise God!

 


 Tuesday, October 5, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

I was dropping off 2 end tables & a lamp that I purchased at my favorite second hand store at the Focus Center & then I was going to go to the noon Mass downtown.  I asked a strong man, from the taxi company, that we share the building with, to help me get the things out of my car, which he did. As I was leaving the center to go to Mass the doorbell rang & it was one of our clients who is due any day now with her mother.  They came to pick up the car seat that we got for the baby.  I was surprised to see them because I told them I would be there from 1-8pm but this worked out well.  I invited them into the Material Aid Room to pick up some more things for her baby girl, who will soon join us in this world.  Praise God, for this mom was going into Planned Parenthood about 7 months ago, to have an abortion & changed her mind after I showed her the graphic sign Malachi & gave her a Truth packet.  I didn't know that she changed her mind until about 3 weeks ago.  Thank you Lord!  She is the friend of our newest client that had the RU 486 abortion pills taken out of her more than a week ago, that Martha & I brought her to our doctor for the removal, & she told me that her friend had changed her mind.  I told her & her mom to continue to shop & just shut the door when finished for I was heading to go to Mass.  They said "okay" nut first I told them about the racism at Planned Parenthood & gave them some brochures to educate them.  I get the feeling that the girls mom doesn't know that she went to Planned Parenthood to have an abortion that day.  But the outcome is real good that she stayed pregnant & will be delivering her daughter soon.  Yeah!!  This is what it is all about "new life' created by God to be in this world until He call us to go to the next world for all Eternity either to be with Him or to be with the Evil One.  It's your choice!!   

 


Wednesday, October 13, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

I arrived at the center & asked for help to unload my car with baby & children items that I was blessed with from the second hand store in East Rochester.  After that I was suppose to go to Webster to pick up a small crib for one of our clients with a small baby girl.  Well that never happened.  I called our client & she couldn't come until tomorrow so I decided to wait until later tonight to pick up the items so I emailed Maria about the change of plans.  The Lord had another plan for this day.  I was expecting Tim to come to set up the bassinet for another one of our clients & to give Martha & I a ham & turkey sub for lunch.  Both came to pass.  I went out to see if the abortionist, Rachael Phelps was there & she was.  As I was walking back to the center & approached a young girl & asked if she needed any assistance.  She said that she needed a pregnancy test so I asked her follow me into the center to get on, she did.  I called to Martha to ask her if she would assist this young lady & she said that she would.  Ironically she knew her from the past.  Tony & Joy who are husband & wife came in to talk to Martha & I for a few minutes & then took some graphic signs & went out to the front lines while I worked at my desk for a few minutes of catch up, but not for long.  The doorbell rang  then Martha had stuck her head into the office to tell me that a couple with 2 children were in the Material Aid Room to get some clothes & she was busy doing a pregnancy test.  No problem Martha.  I got up & went into the Material Aid Room & there was Tony & a woman & a man & 2 young girls around 2 & 3 years old, in a stroller.  Then Tony said to me that she had an appointment at Planned Parenthood on Tuesday, my heart almost dropped.  I turned to her & asked her for what.  She said to me so matter of a fact tone of voice, which ripped my flesh, to have an abortion.  I looked right at her & said "no you're not going to kill your baby".  The man with her said something to her in Spanish, oh no, I thought.  I might not understand Spanish but I certainly can read faces & I didn't like what I saw in his.  I spoke to them both & then he said "it's not my baby".  Lord have Mercy!  I said that it didn't matter whose baby it was that this child was created by God, on loan to you both, to take care of, so work it out.  Martha was finished with the client in the Rose Room so she brought them into the room to speak to them both.  She was with them counseling them for about 15 minutes.  When they came out I continued to speak to them too.  They were given many brochures & DVD's one was the movie Bella & I showed them pictures of aborted babies to which they both reacted to.  I gave them food & diapers for their daughters, from the Material Aid Room & told then that we would help them with their needs.  Martha read to them the poem 'My Life Depends One You, which the mother reacted emotionally.  Then Martha said to the man who still stated that this was not his baby by saying "have you ever made a mistake"?  He bet his head & then the wife said "oh yea you have two other children by another woman & then he said oh yea you have a child in Peru".  What a mess!  Then Martha stated to them, with her hands up, "well then, you're one happy family"!!  As they were leaving I said to the woman that you could die from the abortion for women have, which is a well kept secret.  She just looked at me & they left.  Well, they were given lots of information to ponder.  Please Lord Jesus, please spare this child from being killed, & all the babies that are threatened by abortion, Amen. 

More to come, for we have been so very busy at the Focus Center & on the sidewalk in counseling, in front of Planned Parenthood, in saving lives, though God's grace.   


Saturday, October, 16, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

ISee full size image was the Team Captain of the 'America Needs Fatima' Rosary Rally, in front of Planned Parenthood, where we are to gather & pray the Rosary to end abortion with all our brothers & sisters in the Nation at 12 noon.  Check out: http://www.americaneedsfatima.org/. The power of people praying all at the same time throughout America & other Countries to end abortion, thus storming Heaven.  While I was still at home I received a call from one of our clients & she was there at the center already to get some diapers & baby clothes.  I told her that we aren't usually open on Saturdays but I was heading there in a little while, & for her to wait for me.  She said that she would.  I had to go to the Post Office first to mail an informational package to a young girl that I met at the gas station on Friday.  While I was getting gas at the See full size imagecorner gas station where I live, I heard a voice  reading my bumper stickers on my car, out loud.  She was saying "You can't be Pro Choice and a Catholic".  I thought, oh no Lord give me the right words to say to her for it's 10:30pm & I'm tired & I don't want to mess this up to witness the Truth to her.  I turned around to speak to her.  I found her not belligerent & defensive but cooperative & pleasant.  She said that she is a Catholic but hasn't gone to church in many years & that she doesn't believe in abortion & is on birth control.  Well, this opens yet another door.  I told her about the abortive effects of the Pill. She said that she didn't know that & turned to her girlfriend, who was sitting in the car, & said to her "did you know that"? She replied that she didn't know that either.  I went to the truck of my car & got for her & her friend a Rosary & our Focus Center's See full size imagebrochure & I saw that I had a booklet on 'How to Examine you Conscious before Confession" & gave it to her.  I said that if I could get her name & address I'd send her our Truth packet & other information to educate her.  She was open & respective to what I was saying which made me feel good.  She got a piece of paper & a pen & wrote it down & gave it to me.  I said "thank you" & that I would send her some information real soon, & if she had any question she could call me at the number that was on the Focus brochure.  She thanked me & we both left the gas station.  I said thank you to the Lord for this 'Divine Encounter' to help someone to come back to the Faith & to get off of birth control & to lead a chaste life.

I went into the center & greeted our mom & her precious baby boy.  I opened up the Material Aid Room for her to go in to shop.  About an half an hour later our clients father arrived to pick her up.  She saw that we had a play seat, for her son, but it was to big for her to take with her now in her fathers car.  She asked if she could pick it up later this evening when her grandmother can pick it up in her van.  I said that I was going to Mass at 4:30 tonight & I'll come back after Mass for her to get it, that would be fine.  She said "thank you very much for that".  "No problem, my dear", I responded back.  Her father & I started to talk & he asked me if I ever went to Corpus Christi Church?  I said "no" & then I asked him if he was Catholic.  He said that he was but hasn't been to Mass in a long time.  I said then you need to go to Confession & then go to Mass every Sunday after that.  He said his grandmother rolled over in her grave.  I said what do you mean?  He said that he had a dream of his Grandmother coming out of the cemetery & aSee full size imagepproaching him saying "how are you Michael"?  He replied "I'm fine Grandma"  She said back to him "no you are not Michael & I am very disappointed in you" & she started to walk back to the cemetery & he followed her & she turned around & said to him "you cannot follow me where I am going Michael".  He did follow her from a far & saw that she went back to her grave site & laid down & then rolled over. That dream gave me the creeps. He said that dream scared him, to say the least & he wants to go back to church.  I said "by all means come back to the Catholic Church & don't wait till it's to late".  I gave him a brochure of my parish Our Lady of Victory & when the Confession times were & a Rosary to start saying, that the Blessed Mother will draw him back to the church ASAP.  I went to get the America Needs Fatima banner & to speak to Martha who just came in for a few minutes before going outside to start the Rosary.  We thought that it might be only her & I & Rick praying but we were wrong we had a total of 18 people praying right across the street of Planned Parenthood for an hour.

There was street work being done, for the workers were See full size imageputting in new gas pipes on University Ave., for the old ones were worn & dangerous, so cars had to slow down because of the construction work & they saw us praying & had time to read our signs that read 'PRAY TO END ABORTION' & 'WOMEN DO REGRET ABORTION'.  There were only two negative people, one gave us the bird & the other stuck out her tongue.  We continued to pray for them too, otherwise it was a very positive experience.  We also prayed the Divine Mercy prayers & then went into FSee full size imageocus to have some hot chocolate & cookies.  What a nice morning & the weather was great, cool & clear. 

Please ask you son Jesus to end abortion. 
Thanks Blessed Mother.

Great News!
I just spoke to our mom, in the hospital tonight.  Mother & See full size imagedaughter are doing very well.  Her baby girl was born this evening & weighs 8lbs. 6ozs. & is 22 inches long.  This mom was going into Planned Parenthood, early part of 2010, & she saw the graphic signs & was handed the Truth packet & we spoke with her for awhile, out in the cold.  She went home instead of going into PP for the abortion.  Praise God!!  She's happy & so are we that she 'Chose Life' & her baby does too.  God is happy also.  Amen.... 

 


Tuesday, October 19, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

When I arrived at the center after Mass there were people already waiting to come into the Material Aid Room to get 'free' baby & children clothes & items. Thank God there was Sandy there to help get the things out of my car & Martha's for the center.  A few minutes later there was Donna & the two woman from Hornell which is about 45 minutes away.  Then came Carole & Jerry to be out on the front lines. I needed to get a letter off of the computer to fax it over to the church who wanted the information so that they could put it into their bulletin.  We are scheduled, at the church on October 31st. to rSee full size imageeceive 10% of the collection money, for Focus.  I pray that the parishioners will be generous to our center's work.  So I scrambled to get the letter printed out & to give it to Elroy, our Accountant, who has his office right next to ours, to fax it over to John who will put it in the bulletin.  Talk about short notice & stress.  I feel like death warmed over but I can't stop & stay home & let this ministry crumble.  The Lord will sustain me & will give me more grace to do the work that He called me to do.  The doorbell just kept on ringing & more moms were in the Material Aid Room to get the things that they needed for their children. 
 
I was in & out of the center & out on the front lines all afternoon.  Cleveland, our street person that we adopted, See full size imagestopped by & wanted food.  "I'm hungry Mary".  "Okay Cleveland I'll get you something to eat". "Do have any coffee"?  A new request?  I went over to Mack's next door to get him a cup of coffee with 1 teaspoon of sugar & cream.  He liked it a lot.  I hope that I can afford this new request.  It's more expensive then Ramom Noodles. 
 
I was looking out for the husband & wife & their two daughters that came last Thursday to Focus for Material Aid.  She said that she was scheduled for an abortion on Tuesday so I was watching for her.  I really didn't want to see her for if I didn't sSee full size imageee her then that meant that she didn't come for the abortion & had changed her mind.  I though that it was clear for it was now 3:30pm & out of Planned Parenthood they all came out one big happy family that was going to kill another member of the family.  This ministry is the hardest & I'm not bragging.  I asked he if she did it & she made it sound that she did then said that she was here for blood work & that her blood pressure was good.  Ick!!  That's all you care about as your baby is secluded to be killed in two days.  Then she said that she was told to come back on Thursday for that's the day that they do abortions.  They do See full size imagesurgical abortions on Thursday & RU 486 abortions on Tuesdays.  How evil!!  I still feel that I'm on the Twilight Zone, for those who can remember it.  Please director, holler "cut, it's a rap you can go home now".   I pleaded with her & her husband was a snot about us talking to her.  Today she referred him as her boyfriend, no mater which he is, he is not the father of this precious baby & he wants this baby DEAD.  Just then Donna M. came by & I engaged her to help me in this situation.  I saw that Martha went over to try to talk to him who was with the two girls in the stroller.  Natasha asked if she could get diapers in the center so Donna & I brought her in.  Donna told her that she would adopt the baby & have an open adoption which meant that if she wanted the baby back she could have him or her back when things got better for her.  I gave her Fr. Tony's phone number for he speaks Spanish & Donna & I gave her our phone number's too to call us.  She wrote all the numbers down on her piece of paper.  She got some diapers & shoes for her children & I gave her my jacket & put in the pockets a Green Scapular, of conversion, & the poem 'My Life Depends on You'.  Oh please dear Lord save this baby & all babies from abortion.  Amen.  She left the center & said that her boyfriend See full size imagewas crazy.  I told her that he didn't love her for he wanted her baby to be killed & what kind of man would want that?  He was across the street at the Gibbs Street Restaurant & he left the two girls in the stroller alone & was walking down the street.  Natasha went over to get her children & Donna & I again asked her not to go for the abortion on Thursday.  I told her that woman do die from abortions which they do.  This is a well kept secret of abortionist & Planned Parenthood.  She said 'thank you" & went with the stroller to catch up to him.  I called out to him one more time before they walked away.  Lord have Mercy!   Donna had to go but said that we should pray & to fast tonight for them.   I agreed.  I said god bye o Donna & went back into the center. 
 
Martha & I did some work in the center & ate supper together talking about the events of the day.  We had a '40 Days for Life' meeting at 7pm but before that we called our clients to tell ten that we had what they had requested from us, like strollers & cribs & bassinets & car seats, to pick up.  They were happy to receive that phone call.  We had a good meeting & were planning the 'Victory Day' on Sunday, October 31st. at 2pm.  See full size imageMartha & Bill & Pat were sorting out baby clothes & I was working in the office.  I left around 9:30pm.  My heart is heavy to the men & woman who want these baby killed.  How evil, how sick & how selfish too.  They are jeopardizing their souls for eternal damnation too.
 

Wednesday, October 20, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

Martha & I were kept busy in the center for awhile before going out on the front lines.  I stayed in the office longer to do some important paper work leaving Martha by herself for awhile on the front lines which isn't good.  She was by herself then Carole came then I came outside & then Linda came next.  She read the Exorcism prayers & I went into the center to get the Blessed Salt & Holy Water that Fr. Brian blessed a couple of See full size imageweeks ago at the Mass he celebrated at Focus, he included the Exorcism prayers with the blessings.  Linda sprinkled the Holy Water & Blessed Salt on the sidewalk to come against the evil spirits there at Planned Parenthood, in Jesus' name.  Just as I was walking back to be with the girls the man who works at Planned Parenthood came walking down the sidewalk, he was in front of me.  He's the one that doesn't like the idea that we put our literature box on the wooden edge by the bushes.  He always stops to tell us to take it off & we do then put it right back on again, at times.  Yesterday he got out of his car & came over.  I walked away & asked Carole to go over to him, which she did.  She told him what is more important the things on the ledge or you killing babies in there?  He said to her "so they won't turn out like you".  How evil!  He went in the Planned Parenthood building to do more damage there. How sad.  
 
Kathy came a few minutes later & she handed to me a bunch of 'See full size imageVoting Pro Life' brochures with a Holy Card of Our Lady of Guadeloupe in it.  We talked & prayed for awhile. She & her husband are moving to Buffalo this month & I will certainly miss them both for they are fantastic people & have blessed the Focus Center with many things over the years.  God bless them in their new move.
 
We had a mother come over to us with her 2 year old son, what See full size imagea cutie he was.  Martha brought them into the Material Aid Room to get come things for him.  While I was outside I gave Truth packets to 2 girls coming out of Planned Parenthood & after they went back in to get their friend she wanted one too.  I gave them a Growth & Development DVD to watch together & to share with their other friends too.  Prayer & Education are the Keys. 
 
Carole went into her car to get her little dog.  He was a rescue See full size imagedog that was abused & when she got him he was emaciated.  She & her husband has now bought him back to health & he is so cut & well behaved.  People can be mean.
 
Linda mentioned that there was a web site that we should look at & it is http://www.missysmith2010.com/.  I recommend a WARNING first to look at it.  The Truth is powerful but can be upsetting to say the least.  This woman is making reparation for what she has done in her past so that others will not follow in her footsteps & be harmed by the abortion industry.  Thanks Missy. 
 
Rob came & that was a surprise & then came our birthday boy See full size imageBill & after we sang Happy Birthday to him he walked over to the other side of the sidewalk to be with Rob.  Guys like to stick together.  Then Tucker came .  He told me that he ordered a new mega phone for us & we should be getting it real soon.  Yeah & thanks Tuck.
 
Our 3 fantastic Elim Bible Institute Students came at 4pm to hSee full size imageelp us out at Focus.  They are a tremendous help to me.  I gave them all assignments & they assisted a new mom who just came in for baby clothes in the Material Aid Room which they enjoyed.  Two of the girls made up Truth packets &separated our diapers in plastic bags so that we will have enough for all our moms in need.  One of the girls wrote thank you letters to our benefactors that have blessed us with a monetary gift.  Need less to say I kept them quite busy.  Then Pat our great grandmother, of the babies that were saved from abortion, came in for some baby clothes & to talk about what was going on in her life.  She is going through a lot poor baby.  We love & pray for you dear Pat & don't give up for the Lord is watching over you & your family. 
 
A pro lifer named Pat came in to assist us in the center.  She is See full size imagetrying to get us more diapers through a Huggie Program, through FoodLink.  Thanks Pat. 
 
 
This ministry is based on all the helpers that bless us with their See full size imageprayers & presence, love & support, emotionally & financially.  I am soooo blessed to know these wonderful people.  Praise you Lord & thank you so much.  We couldn't do it without you dear Lord & the people that you have sent to us. I give all the Glory to God!!!  
 
 

Thursday, October 21, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

Martha & I got to the front lines at 9:15am today, the weather was miserable, to say the least, it was cold & it rained off & on all day too.  We wanted to be there for all the women who were scheduled for an abortion & also for Nat who was scheduled for an abortion today.  Martha & I spoke to her & her boyfriend on two separate occasions & gave them DVD's on Growth & Development & the Bella movie, also children's clothes & diapers for their 2 daughters.  We showed them pictures & told them that we would help them during the pregnancy & after.  The boyfriend wants this precious baby dead because this baby is not his.  So a baby should be killed if he or she is not yours?  How evil!  If you can't raise this child then place this child up for adoption & give this child a life with parents who will love & care for him or her as their own.  This is not their biological baby either but they want a child.  'The quick kill mentally', how selfish & disturbing.  I told her to say "good bye to the boyfriend & not the baby".  She said that he was crazy, so I rest my case.  Well they never showed up & we were there from 9:15am until 4:30pm & we didn't see them going in or coming out of Planned Parenthood.  Yeah!  But the abortionist killed many babies that day.  The girls were slumped down in the either the front or back seats of the cars driving them out.  One car even had 2 children in it.  They lost a brother or a sister & was brought to the very place, by they parents, that killed him or her.  It's enough to make you sick & it does.  I told the father that he put a curse on his family & killed generations with this abortion.  They just look at you, wait & see!!  We pleaded with the mothers to 'chose life' & that we could help them & that their baby had a heartbeat & deserves a birthday & not a death day.  They deserved to be protected & not harmed.  I call the abortionist & the workers at Planned Parenthood "bullies" & tell them to pick on someone their own size.  It's so evil! 
 
Across the street there was a mom walking her young See full size imagedaughter, who was about 3 years old, down the sidewalk & Martha called to her asking if she would like a 'free' stroller.  She hollered from across the street "yes" & started to cross the street over to where Martha & I were standing by the bushes.  As the young girl was walking she saw the graphic signs & said "oh no" then she saw another picture & said "oh no" & walked over to another & said "oh no", as we were trying to turn the pictures around so she couldn't see them.  The mother was not alarmed that her daughter saw the pictures & followed Martha into the Material Aid Room for clothing.  When she came back out to be with me, for at that time it was just Martha & myself, later on Tony & Joyce & Lynda came to join us, she told me what had happened to this young mother yesterday.  She was walking down on of the inner city street by herself & was jumped by a guy who beat her up & stole her purse with all her ID in it.  When she crossed over the street I didn't see her face for I was looking at the little girls reaction to the signs.  The See full size imagemoms face was cut & she had to go to the Emergency Room for stitches yesterday & was hidden by a hood & scarf.  Martha said that she took the stroller & will come back later on to get the other things that her little girl wanted, she had to go to the police department to fill out some more forms.  Well she kept her promise & came back about 2 hours later, to get the things in the center that she wanted.  As they were coming down the sidewalk the little girl, who was in the stroller, put both of her hands up in the air when she saw Martha.  It was sooo cute & heartwarming to behold.  They went back into the Material Aid Room to finish the deal.  When they came out they walked passed me.  The mom stopped to say hi to me & the little girl saw the mega phone that I was holding & said "I want that".  I looked at her & said "no honey".  Then she said it again "I want that" & pointed to the mega phone that I was holding.  Again I said "no sweetheart, that's not for little girls".  Then she tried to turn around the graphic sign, that I had turned around, so that she couldn't see it.  I thought to myself 'you little dickens'.  Then the mom said in a quiet voice "she tired & needs a nap".  As they were walking away I heard the little girl say in a loud voice "I'M NOT TIRED".   I said to them, "Bye Bye".  In all my years I never met a child so young with such a strong  personality as she had.   She'll keep the mom busy that's for sure.  She was so cute with the bows in her hair & the determined look on her face.  Come to find out that this mother lost her son after heart surgery when he was about 8 momths old & the little girl, who was born before her brothers death, names most of her stuffed animals Michael, after her deceased brother.  How sweet.
 
Tony & Joyce, Martha & Lynda was now on the front lines praying & witnessing.  I saw that a young girl was watching us from across the street at the Veterinary Hospital, probably was talking in all that was happening. Then I saw that she had crossed the street to our side & was talking to Tony & his wife Joyce.  I decided to walk over to them to hear what she was saying & to offer any help that I could.  I will say talking to people one to one is not easy for me especially if they are combative.  I just walk away now rather than argue with them because I found out through my years of experience that you cSee full size imagean't.  I went over to her & said "hi can we help you"?  She said "why do you think that by hollering at these people that you are doing any good"?  Wow, okay I will try to talk to her for she asked a question & I will calmly answer her.  I said back to her that more than 50 babies have been saved, through the grace of God, by us being out here hollering at people.  She then said "I don't believe in abortion, only in rape & incest, but is this the best way"?  Then I told her 'My Story' about how I was gang raped & conceived twins & miscarried them & how I grieve them & know that I will see them someday after I die.  I also said that no child should die for the crime of their father & that the mother will suffer even more that she had had an abortion, for that was her fault but the rape wasn't.  She said "is this all you do"?  I said back to her that I was also the director of the Pregnancy Center right next to this yellow building & we offer free pregnancy tests, baby & children clothes, doctors & ultrasound referrals & literature for educational purposes too.  I offered her our Truth packet but she said "no thank you".  I told her that education was very important & the more that you know the more that you can help yourself & others.  Then she said "well Planned Parenthood does good things too, for I went there for birth control".  Now we're cooking.  I said back to her "do you know about the abortive effects of the birth control pills & what they do to you health too, possibly causing breast cancer, heart disease & other health problems too"?  "No" she replied.  I said that Planned Parenthood deceived you & you said that they helped you, see what I mean!!  When you take the Pill you could be aborting 2 pregnancies a year & that you probably have some children in Heaven, so you want to make sure that you don't go to Hell, otherwise you will never be with them for all Eternity. You have to repent of your sins & please do it before it's to late.  She then said "I'll take my chances for I'm not giving up sex".  Sex is not worth going to Hell for I called to her as she was walking back across the street to the Veterinary Hospital.  I hope & pray that some one will come to her to water the seed that was just planed in her soul.  God will not abandon her & He will pursue her.  I pray that I will be better with the one on one when I am challenged & not sound self righteous.  Lord please forgive me of my Pride & male me more of your instrument to speak with holy boldness with love.  Tough love is LOVE & not hatred.  The Truth is hard to accept & some don't accept it readily but hopeful in time they will. "You shall know the Truth and the Truth shall set you See full size imagefree" but first it will make you miserable :(  
I waited for her to come back out of the Vets to tell her to check out this web site for information but I must have missed her.  I felt badly that she didn't take the Truth packet but know that the seed of Truth was planted in her heart, by what I said to her.  Now it's up to her & her 'free will'.  Lord have Mercy!  Her & everyone that I talk to is planted in my heart, maybe that's way I hurt so much. 
 
Great News!  A mom, who had called me for some boy clothes for her baby, who is due November 15th., told me that she had See full size imagechanged her mind, to have an abortion, because we were out in front of Planned Parenthood showing her the pictures & talking to her.  This was exciting news to hear.  Then on Thursday I received a phone call from a young girl, that needed  clothes for her baby, that will be born next month too.  She said that it was because we were out, in front of Planned Parenthood, that she changed her mind about having an abortion that day.  This was great news to hear again.  Praise God!!
 
 

 
Friday October,24, 2010 in my world
 
See full size imageI went to a funeral Mass for my dear friend Mary Ann's mother who died at Monroe Community Hospital for the Mass at 11am.  It was a beautiful Mass with the celebrant Fr. Dennis Bonsonori, who is related to my sister's husband, a distant relative but a powerful on to say the least. After the Mass  I went to Beth, Bath & Beyond to return my sleep mask for See full size imageanother, they work very well in keeping out the sunlight, when the cashier spotted my '40 Days for Life' pin that I was wearing.  She said "I like your pin & I don't believe in abortion but my girlfriend's mother made her have one just a couple of days ago".  My heart sank.  She went on to say that she offered to adopt the baby but the mother wanted non of that.  I asked how old the friend was & she said 18.  I asked why she couldn't have run away to a safe house.  She said that her mother followed her everywhere she went.  What power she has over her daughter.  I said that I was the director of the Focus Pregnancy Help Center & gave her my card & told her if she or her girlfriend needed any help just please call me .  I said for her to watch out for some complications of having had an abortion & she said that she was suicidal before the abortion.  I said for her to watch her closely for that is one of the complications from having had an abortion.  Just then my cell phone rang & it was one of our clients saying that she was heading over to the center to pick up the items that I had promised her.  Unplanned, for I had just gone grocery shopping See full size image& needed to go to the bank to deposit the checks that the center had received over the past week, into the bank.  I hadn't planned on this but this was the only time that she could get her friends van to pick up all the things which included a bassinet, Pac n Play & a car seat.  So I go with the flow & said my good bye to the sorrowful cashier to which I felt her pain & off to the center I go with my milk & cheese, in a bag, in the back seat of my car.  All will work out, it always does.  My heart went out to the young girl whose heart was crushed by her girlfriends abortion forced by the mother, who will be held more accountable than the daughter, for the murder of this precious child. 
 
I got to the center to meet our client who had changed her mind of having an abortion because we were out there in front of Planned Parenthood to educate her to what abortion was all See full size imageabout.  She went home that day after choosing life.  Yeah!  She was a sweet young girl with a huge smile.  We said hi & she told me that I had beautiful hair.  I said that her hair was beautiful too.  We got help form the guys at the taxi company & Mack from next door to put the things in the van.  The driver of the van was handicapped & couldn't help & I couldn't help due to my nerve root compression at L5 injury, which the abortionist Morris Wortman caused back in 1978. I also have my current challenge Fibromyalgia too, that's not including the gross abdominal pain that I suffer every day of my life.  What a mess I am.  She was so happy that everything fitted in the van & I thanked the driver for taking such good care of our girl & gave her a hug & off they went.  Her baby is due in the middle of November & we'll get some baby boy clothes for him before that. 
 
I thanked the guys for helping us & off to East Rochester I go to put the groceries away before our meeting at 3:30 at SSee full size imagetarbuck's at the 12 corners in Brighton.  I got there in a hurry. Pat, our Monday evening counselor, & two lovely ladies from the Angel Ministry, where they make dresses for women in need all over the world, were waiting for me.  We met to see how our two ministries could help each other, in helping our clients, live a better life.  They were so interesting & ironically we knew the same people.  They go to St. Cecilia's Parish & Fr. Leone there is my & the Focus Center's Spiritual Director & the other priest there burns our DVD's that we give out to our clients to save lives.  They know Muriel, who is a wonderful prayer warrior & has a ministry, of prayer.  It was a blessed afternoon to be with all these fine women. 

 
Tuesday, October 26, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
What a day!!  I knew Martha wasn't going to be there & warned Donna about that.  She was great for she came into the center to help me with ALL the mothers that came in with their children to get baby & children's clothes.  It all started when I arrived at the center & I ended up speaking with two pro lifers who are suffering at the news that their 3 year old grandson is suffering with cancer & is going through many treatments that are difficult for the child & for the family.  They gave a generous donation to the work at the Focus Center, how generous & loving.  My heart & prayers go out to them & their family.  Lord please heal this precious little boy & thank you.  Then they went to the front lines to pray & I went into the center.  All of a sudden the doorbell rang, rang & rang again.  So many mothers came into the Material Ad Room for clothes & sSee full size imagemall items.  I also received a call from a mom who was in need of diapers & formula & her husband came in later on to get the items.  He also took a Rosary for her & for him.  His wife is Catholic & will have their baby Baptized real soon.  This is great news!!  I am so happy that we are there for our moms in a short time duration until things get better for them in a longer duration.  There was 7 pro lifers out on the front lines while Donna & I were manning the center.  We were also putting away the donations that we received from good people. 
 
I went into the Great Room to eat a quick sandwich & the doorbell rang & I was called out to come to talk to a young girl.  I lead her into the Rose Room & we started to talk. She told me about her friend who is pregnant with triplets who might be aborting on Thursday.  She was lead into the center by Susan & I was talking to her about birth control then I started to talk about abortion & she told me that her girlfriend iSee full size images pregnant with triplets but her mother said that there was enough children in the house already.  Then she said that her girlfriend was at Planned Parenthood now & she was suppose to meet her there & get her birth control patch!! Check out: http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2005/jul/05072703.html  "What" I said !  I started to give her everything that I had on abortion & adoption & told her See full size imagethat she will be the 'life saver' of these 3 little babies & that we will pray for her & here is my phone # if you need me for anything.  Off she went to Planned Parenthood hopefully she will be used by God to save these precious babies from being killed on the abortion day.... Thursdays.  My prayers go out to this situation & hope that this mother chooses life for her 3 children.  Life is cheap at Planned Parenthood! 
 
I went out to the front lines for the first time all day to give the team more packets of Truth packets.  When I arrived there was a car that came out of the parking lot & Susan offered them the packet of information.  The passenger started to ask some questions & I asked the driver to come along the side of the sidewalk near us.  They saw the graphic pictures & started to ask some questions.  One question was "what if the girl can't afford the baby"?  So I said "that's no reason to kill a baby, there is NO reason, abortion is always evil".  Then Susan told them that Planned Parenthood was Racist.  I said that there was a lot of information in the packet that you just took.  Then he said "what about birth control"?  I told them about the abortion effect of birth control & that sex outside of marriage is a serious sin & must be confessed.  The right way that pleases the Lord is to get married first then have sex & your children, any other way is a great offense to the dear Lord.  The man said "keep up the good work that your all are doing".  We all said "thank you" & they drove away.  Just then I heard a voce saying to me "are you Mary"?  I said "yes".  She said that she had brought some blankets for the moms &  said why don't you follow mew into the center.  We walked & talked at the same time.  I brought her into the center & gave her a tour, she was impressed.  She then asked me about why I thought birth control was wrong.  I told her & she thanked me for the information which she didn't know about.  Education & prayer are the keys.  She wrote us a check to help us in the work that See full size imagewe do at Focus.  She also gave us some baby clothes & some beautiful blankets for our babies.  Thank you so very much for blessing us Suzanne, please come again. 
 
The doorbell rang again & it was three adults & two small children.  I asked Donna if she could assist them in the Material Aid Room.  All of a sudden by what they were saying I realized that they were the family that 'chose life' about a year ago.  Here is the story told by Tony:  We were wrapping things up at Planned Parenthood and were putting the signs away (by this time it was pretty much Joyce and I) and this women comes out of the vet hospital across the street from the focus center. She has her dog and a young child about two or three years old. Well she starts coming across the street towards me.  Joyce is already in the van, and I am thinking oh boy, here we go. She was calling to me excuse me, excuse me.  I said yes? She said I just want to thank you all. I said what?  She repeated it and said I want to thank you all for being here.  About a year ago her daughter went for an abortion and someone handed her a pamphlet and after reading it she decided not to have the abortion.  She told her mother that she had a gut feeling that it was wrong but after looking at the pamphlet she couldn't go through with it. The mother  was so happy because now she has a beautiful grandson about a year old. Isn't that a great story. I told her we would love to meet them and to bring them down to the center.  I think they might come down this week.  Well they did.  They will give their testimony at the '40 Days for Life' Victory Rally on Sunday at 2pm at Focus.  This is awesome. 
 
Tony arrived to help out at the center & I told him that his friends were here at Focus today & that they agreed to come on Sunday to give their testimony.  He smiled from ear to ear, he was sooo happy to hear this.  He was so helpful in the center & made up many Truth packets for the team to hand out.  Martha arrived & I was happy to see her, she is such a blessing to Focus & the street ministry.  I believe that it was her that had handed this mother the packet that God used to save this little baby's life.  She wasn't with us today for she was taking her friend to the doctors for eye surgery.  What a wonderful woman she is.  It was busy in the center & the doorbell ran for it was See full size imagePat for the last meeting for the '40 Days for Life'.  Rick & Lee came next.  Martha was eating our lasagna & salad for our supper, for we hadn't any.  Martha made coffee & we had chocolate chip cookies for dessert.  The meeting was chuck full of information.  It was great.  After everyone had left Martha & I & Pat stayed to put away donations that we ere blessed with.  Great job guys. 
 
 
As we were leaving Elaine & Janet stopped by to bless us with two Captain chairs for the Great Room.  Thanks so much girls See full size imagefor they look beautiful in the Great Room, a prayer answered.  Thanks Lord you even answer the smallest of prayers.  "Good night" we all said to each other, as we left the Focus Center.

 
Wednesday, October 27, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
I arrived to the center after Mass & so did Martha.  We opened up the rooms to get ready for the afternoon.  I was I much pain I though that I would die but I just can't go home & feel sorry for myself I have to keep on going through the grace of God.  I helped Martha put out the signs & the literature box & I was summoned into the center to speak to our accountant who is working to straighten us out to make sure that our center is up to the Federal Government 's requests, as a 501(c)3 organization.  So Martha was out on the front lines with Jerry who showed up to be with her.  He was across the street with signs & the he was praying the Rosary deep in prayer to end abortion.  Sandy came & was working in the Material Aid Room putting the donations away.  She was very busy this afternoon & is a great blessing to the center. I was so upset to see See full size imagecigarette butts by the container to put the butts in by the front door.  I spoke strongly to the supervisor to tell his employees that this is not acceptable to throw the butts on the ground by the container that they must put the butts in the container.  Such children that you have to tell them what to do.  Give me a break!  Needless to say that they probably won't do it again. I was upset & felt disrespected. 
 
The wind was blowing & I was picking up the signs that were See full size imagefalling down all the time & with this back & abdominal pain I just gave up bending down & put the signs by the ledge.  I felt badly because I was in such pain I couldn't believe it & bending down really hurts because of the nerve root compression at L5.  I want to do God's work so I asked Him again to heal me so that I could do more in the center & on the street for His Glory. 
 
I was disappointed to see that Carole wasn't there today, hope See full size imageall is well, but Lynda arrived & then her beautiful daughter Lisa came later to witness.  I spoke to 2 girls that drove into Planned Parenthood one went into the building & the other came over to us to talk to us.  She was a beautiful young lady of 17.  She had her act together with her head on her shoulders.  She looked intently at the graphic pictures of the aborted babies with such compassion, it made me almost cry.  She took the Truth Packet & wanted more information because she was doing a report on abortion, so I brought her into the center & gave her lots of See full size imageinformation for her paper.  She goes to Jefferson High School.  She told us that her sister was there for the Depo shot.  I told her that it was a very dangerous drug that causes abortions.  It also causes fractures & has many side effects.  We all, on the front lines, encouraged her to talk to her older sister & to share the information that she was given.   She said that she would & said thank you & good bye.  What a lovely girl that is not sexually active & wants to do the right thing & wait until marriage to have sex & then her children & in the mean time she wants to go to school & be something.   You Go Girl!! 
 
Paul came & he was praying with Martha the Rosary.  Lynda had mentioned to me that I had once brought out some baby items to witness to the public driving by.  So after Paul had finished praying I asked him if he would come into the center tSee full size imageo get the wooden bassinet & put it out on the sidewalk to witness to the public, he said that he would.  He put a teddy bear in it.  Thanks Paul, I hope that helps get people to understand what we are talking about out there.  Just then the school bus driver gave us a positive honk & waved to us giving us encouragement in what we were doing out in front of Planned Parenthood, to help save lives.   I told Lynda of my new strategy.  I said that I was inspired to what Martha had told me earlier on that a woman had told her that she was in there for See full size imagea Depo shot because she didn't want anymore children.  I thought to myself 'how stupid'.  So I'm starting the "Women are 'Stupid' campaign.  Sorry to offend any woman but then it doesn't apply to you, if I do.  The definition of stupid is: 
  1. in a state of stupor; dazed; stunned; stupefied
  2. lacking normal intelligence or understanding; slow-witted; dull
  3. showing or resulting from a lack of normal intelligence; foolish; irrational: a stupid idea
No offense,  this sounds like a lot of women who bought the lies & deception of Planned Parenthood.  They would rather not have a baby but take a drug that can kill them.  How stupid.  They want to have sex & not get sexual diseases or pregnant or lose their self esteem.  They think that all these birth control pills or shots or devices isn't going to hurt them!!!  How stupid. What about their souls?  Having sex outside of marriage is a serious sin which could lead you to Hell, fo all eternity.  Is it worth it??  Plus the woman loses her power with "yes" rather than "no", where she loses her power. Why would she do that?  Sex isn't worth to kill (a baby) or die (herself) or to go to Hell for.  It's a wonderful act of love between a husband & wife. You'll live a happier, healthier, & a better life. Who wouldn't want that!   Let's not be stupid but be smart!! 
 

 
Thursday, October 27, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

When I arrived at the center Martha, Tony, & his wife Joy were there.  Martha made coffee & then Carole came in. I then received a phone call & it was on of our moms who chose life needing me to pick her up at her new apartment to take her to the shelter for the last time before she moves into her new studio apartment.  So I went to pick her up to take her to the shelter.  She is now about 12 weeks pregnant & things are looking up for her since she had the RU 486 pills taken out, about 4 weeks ago.  When I picked her up she asked for me to stop at the corner store for a hot dog.  They didn't have hot dogs but she came out with a piece of pizza instead.  She was grateful that I had picked her up to take her to the shelter, for it was a cold day & she hadn't worn her jacket. As I dropped her off I said to her that if she needed anything please just call me.  I gave her a hug & said "good bye".  Before I went back to the center I stopped at Wendy's to get a hamburger for lunch.  When I got back to the center I stayed to eat my hamburger & talk to Suzanne, our Thursday counselor, about some things.  She was busy with a client in the Material Aid Room.  I did a couple of things & waited until she was finished & sat down to talk to her about some upcoming events.  Then the doorbell rang & it was a young girl needing a pregnancy test & some children clothes.  Then the doorbell rang again & it was my friend Sue who was dropping off some diapers.  She asked me how I was doing & I said that I was in pain & she prayed for me to God to heal me, she did that right in the hallway.  What a sweetie.
 
I went outside to join the team & they told me that they had just spoken to a man, who works for the City, & he came over to them & told our team that his mother was almost aborted.  His grandmother, who was pregnant with his mother, flung herself over the garage roof trying to abort the baby.  Both survived & she had the baby who was his mother but if she was successful then his mother wouldn't be here nor would he be here.  Ironically, when the grandmother was ill the daughter, who she tried to abort, took care of her.  Go figure!!  My grandmother aborted her daughter at Johns Hopkins in 1920 & two and a half years later she was pregnant again, with my mother, & she was going to abort again but thank God that my great mother talked her out of doing it again otherwise I would not be her nor would my mother & my sister & the rest  of the family either.  Abortion is murder & with one baby aborted it is a generation that is lost. 
 

Tuesday, November 2, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

I just came from the Requiem Mass for the dead for this is the Feast of the Holy Souls Purgatory.  When I arrived at the center there was Maria & Ann Marie from Dansville.  They're interning here on the front lines, here in Rochester.  They will start to protest Planned Parenthood, for the first time ever, at the Planned Parenthood, in Danville there that does RU 486 abortions.  They will be setting presence for this will be the first time anyone has ever protested the Planned Parenthood there.  Praise God!!!  Then the doorbell rang & it was one of our mothers picking up the high chair that she wanted when she came in yesterday.  She refused the stroller because it wasn't pink.  Oh well it was 'free'.  I love our moms but they can be picky at times even when the items are free.  I don't think that her little girl would mind to sit in a dark blue stroller.  I don't know who it was but someone stole a picture off of the wall in the lady's bathroom.  Do you believe it!!  It could have been anyone & not one of our clients because we would have seen them & the front door is open at times & anyone could walk in.  Lord have Mercy on the one that stole the picture & the soap.  The bathroom is off limits for 'free' items, if it is one of our girls.  Nothing is sacred in the pregnancy center.
 
Martha gave two pregnancy tests today & the Material Aid Room was buzzing with many moms receiving many nice things for their babies.  The breast pump went real fast & so did many children & baby clothes.  The new Great Room is filling up with many large items & we must give them away before next weeks Mass on Wednesday, November 10th..  One of the moms said that we gave her a rubber baby model of a 12 week old baby, in the womb, while coming out of Planned Parenthood, after finding out that she was pregnant.  She said that when they pulled out of the parking lot I hollered to them & I gave the Truth packet to them & they stopped & received it.  She said that she read over & over again the brochures, so I gave her three new brochures today & she thanked me.  I'm so happy when someone wants to learn more about the Truth & get educated.  She just had her baby & was never abortion minded thank God. She was so grateful of the things that she received today & said that we had many nice things.  I am grateful to all the generous donations of so many great people & my friends at the thrift shop in East Rochester & Maria, who blesses our ministry with many nice things.  We couldn't do it without you all.  Thank you again!!
 
John was in the center working on getting the paperwork up to date.  I had made him, a sandwich & he enjoyed it.  He is a blessing to the Focus Center.  I met a woman who said that she worked for the Planned Parenthood in Ethiopia & was deceived to learn that Planned Parenthood kills little babies in their mothers wombs.  She was so sorrowful & has repented.  I felt so badly for her for she was in such pain for what she did in her past.  She can make it up for what she does in the present. 
 
I went out to be with the team on the front lines.  We witnessed to the public & then all of a sudden there were two young guys who planted themselves across the street with make shift signs.  I was hard on them that's for sure.  They turned out to be two mixed up guys & it was a painful experience for me.  They are non practicing Catholics & were so mixed up about so many things & their Faith.  I had said to them "you're mothers are pro life".  And the one young man said "my mother is pro choice".  I then said then you have some brothers or sisters in Heaven.  This statement upset him & he called his mother on his cell phone.  She said that it was between her & her God.  The other guy mentioned that yellow was blue if he wanted it to be. He was treating God as a magician, it was soooo sad & disturbing that's for sure.  The Death Escort, Barry Swan was leaning the Planned Parenthood where he commits sin & he made a turn & came to approach the two naive boys were protesting but didn't really know what they were doing.  I was trying to cross the street to approach the situation when the Death Escort left.  The poor guys said  that the baby in the womb wasn't a baby, then what was it??  I told then that the baby's heart is beating at 18 to 21 days, after conception, in the womb & that they were once in the womb & they're human.  How do you explain that??  They were so messed up & it was so sad. I heard them talking that they were planning to have more people come to join them next time.  I said "bring them on", the more the better because hopefully someone will be converted that the Lord will use us to help someone.  Then they question God, I said that if you don't believe in God then ask him to relieve himself to you.  The one guy called his mother again asking her more questions.  They said that they were 'free thinkers', how dangerous.  I said that you need guidance to direct you for you will go astray, which you are doing.  I asked them if they were going to Mass every Sunday & they said "no".  I said that not going to Mass on Sundays is a mortal sin & if you died right now you will go to Hell because you know that to be true.  It is a mortal sin which dams your soul to Hell so be sorry for your sins & go to Confession to be absolved. 
 

 
Wednesday, November 3, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
The abortionist Planned Parenthood Rachel Phelps was giving a talk in Syracuse, NY & this was what was reported back to me.
 
The protest went well.  There were only about 20 of us but we marched up and down the sidewalk and at one point said the Rosary together.  We never saw Dr. Phelps but we made our presence known to those who went to the talk and when they exited after 8 PM.  Off and on a car would drive by honking its horn in favor of us.  However, one woman whom we assume attended the meeting told us she adopted children but did believe in abortion, adding that she works in a poor school and sees the bad side of what children go through and should not have to.  That was the basis for her belief.  She told us to adopt children so they can be spared miserable, unproductive lives but no one will because they're black.  One of our protesters, a mother of 7, said she would adopt.
 
Later, a young college-age looking woman who attended the talk approached us and in a friendly manner said she understood our protest but she believed in a woman's right to govern her own body.  She said Dr. Phelps spoke on teen pregnancy and the effect of our culture on sexuality through the media, etc.  Several of us tried to talk to her but she was quite glib although not verbally combative.  One of the protesters loudly kept saying things to her, such as babies being killed, etc. and it was difficult for us to listen to her while he was talking.  I told him to let her finish.  She thanked me for that.  It probably could have could have been a productive discussion with her, in my opinion, but the guy who was bizarre prevented that.  At one point she said she was a Christian and I countered with killing isn't Christian or to that effect. 
 
Another incident took place when a car with teenagers (that's my guess) stopped their car and a girl said, and I'm paraphrasing, "It's my body" and other statements and ended with, as they drove away, "FU!" and gave us the finger.  I said to our group to pray for her.  She may have  had an abortion or is living a disastrous life.
 
I did contact two TV news stations and the newspaper but none of them approached us.  One TV station told me they were going to cover Dr. Phelps' talk.
  
This is a short synopsis of the article in the 'Good Health' newsaper (a very liberal, biased newspaper), November 2010. 
 
Phelps, (the abortionist) in Rochester, is the Associate Medical Director at Planned Parenthood who has served on expert advisory committee for the National Campaign to prevent teen & unplanned pregnancy & the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals.  (Are you kidding to think that abortion is healthy for mother & child).  She has lectured nationally for the National Abortion (baby killing) Federation, & the Medical Students for Choice. (Some doctors they will turn out to be, I thought that a doctor was suppose to save lives, not take lives, how stupid of me).  She completed a Residency in Pediatrics (poor kids) at the University of Rochester, (a killing hospital).  She was in the New York Times article "We Can Do Better', (we sure can by NOT KILLING OUR CHILDREN DR. PHELPS) published July 18,2010. 
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/18/magazine/18abortion-t.html?pagewanted=all. Phelps is on the left side. These are two very confused women. 
 
 
 
It was good that Phelps wasn't at Planned Parenthood today, for she was in Syracuse (poor Syracuse) so Martha & I mostly stayed in the center to put things away in the Material Aid Room.  We are being blessed with so many things. We went outside at times to talk to the people going in & out of Planned Parenthood.  They are victims of the lies & deception of Planned Parenthood.  I pray that people will wake up from their sleep.  I was outside at the time that our three sweet Elim students came to help us out in the center.  Poor girls, for I kept them sooo busy doing so much work.  They don't complain but keep on going.  They got to help out some moms to get some nice things in the Material Aid Room, which they enjoyed.  They like to talk with the moms & to see their babies.  Then I asked for them to clean the car seats that we were given & to put away boxes of baby & children clothes.  They made up more Truth packets for us to hand out on the front lines.  Elizabeth wrote a Thank You letter for a nice woman that blessed us with a donation.  So much to do.  Martha had to leave around 5pm tonight. Alicia came to drop off more children's clothes & I said "good bye" to the students at 6:30pm & thanked them for all the hard work that they did in the center tonight.  Such great helpers. Tucker came earlier & went out to the front lines & prayed by himself outside.  Poor Alicia, I was so wound up that I told her my life story, poor girl.  I think I shocked her but she listened to my tale of woe.  She gave me a big hug & I know that she felt for me.  She is so sweet.  I ate by myself around 9pm, for I was so busy, which was good.  I went home around 10:30pm.  So much to do at a pregnancy center.  Glad that I'm not married.... poor husband, I'd never be home to see him.  The single life is very fulfilling & rewarding.  Thank God for good friends & my cat Godfree. 
 

 
Thursday, November 4, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
I stayed in the center while Martha went outside to be on the front lines.  Bill was across the street so I felt like I could stay in the center to do some things before going outside.  Suzanne was coming at 1:30pm so then I could be out there with Martha.  When Suzanne arrived I shared some things with her then went outside.  Martha told me that a car with a white woman & an African American young girl had pulled out of the parking lot & the girl was slumped down in the front seat.  Phelps had already murdered little babies earlier this morning & will continue until she goes home later this day.  A young girl had come out of Planned Parenthood & all I said to her was that they kill babies in there & that we could help her.  She told to shut up & walked away down the street & called to her as she walked about a couple of other this that she probably didn't know about.  You just keep on trying to tell the Truth & hope & pray that people will change, through the grace of God. 
 
Two girls went into Planned Parenthood & I said that we could help them & the one girl said "thank you" & walked right into that evil place.  When they both came out the girl that said "thank you" earlier started be nasty.  "I'm pro choice" she hollered.  I said "you mean you're pro death or pro abortion", then I said "what choice did your son or daughter have"?  I hope that made her think.  It's not an 'it', he or she is a person who wants be born & not aborted. 
 
There were other people that were receptive today, which is good.  Suzanne did a pregnancy test & gave out some baby & children clothes from the Material Aid Room.  We gave away a beautiful white crib to one of our moms & she was so happy.
 
Martha & I ate early tonight for we had to pick up Christine to take her to Hilton to a second hand store to pick up some things for her new studio apartment that she just moved into.  She so happy now since she is out of the shelter & into her own place.  We glad to help her to get things for it.  It was a rainy 7 cold evening but all went well.  John came by later on to help us get all Christine's things in her apartment.  Thanks Martha & John.  A job well done & Christine was very happy to say the least.  She got so many nice things at the store. 
 

 
 
Wednesday, November 10, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
Martha, Carole & I were there on the front lines & at the center in the afternoon.  The rudeness of people still amaze me.  How do they live with themselves??  Only God knows.  I went in & out on the sidewalk but stayed mostly in the center doing work in there.  We gave a way lots of baby & children clothes to our needy moms for their many children.  I was glad that the three wonderful Elim Bible Students came at 4pm to help us get the Mass ready to celebrate at 6pm.  I kept them very busy setting up tables & chairs for the last Mass of the year.  Tucker came to the sidewalk to witness at 4pm & stayed until 6pm.  Thanks Tucker.  People started to come in around 5:45pm & Father arrived around the same time.  I asked if he had brought his Mass Kit & he said "no, he thought that we had a kit at the center, which we don't.  So we had an old church Mass with Monk's bread that we had in the refrig & I went over to the Ethiopian restaurant to get a glass of wine for the Mass.  It was a beautiful Mass & before Father started he heard my Confession & after the Mass he gave me the Sacrament of the Sick.  Thank you Fr. Joe & God bless you.  He was so nice to eat with my many friends who came to celebrate in the Holy Mass & afterwards with such great food.  Martha made her famous chili mmmm good.  We had pasta with sausage & many great deserts.  It was a wonderful evening.
 

Thursday, November 11, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood

It was a busy afternoon & I was glad that Suzanne was in the See full size imagecenter counseling & helping out in the Material Aid Room.  I was in & out all afternoon & felt like I had abandoned Martha who was out on the front lines.  She understood though. 
 
I almost stayed in denial that the abortionist, Rachael Phelps wasn't killing any precious babies but I was wrong.  I had just come out onto the front lines when I saw a car drive out of the driveway & the woman passenger looked like death warmed over.  I knew that her baby was killed in Planned Parenthood without mercy & for money.  How evil! 
 
I got to speak to some of the girls & Suzanne had helped some See full size imagemoms receive some 'free' clothes for their children in the center.  We must stay positive for the moms who did 'chose life' for their children.  This is a very difficult ministry.  My heart aches all the time with the slaughter of the unborn & the destruction of their mothers.  Abortion effects everyone, even if you don't think so!!
 
Martha & I took our client & friend out for lunch on her See full size imagebirthday at Applebee's, on Sunday, to celebrate her 23rd. birthday.  Her baby is 13 weeks old, in the womb, now.  Praise God for her & her 'saved' baby from the RU 486 abortion pills!!
 

 
Tuesday, November 16, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
Martha called me at home to tell me that she'd wouldn't be at the 12:10 Mass downtown for she was going to have lunch with a friend & she had already went to Mass earlier this morning, so she said that she would see me at 1pm at the center.  I said "okay & thanks for letting me know this & I'll see you at 1.  After Mass downtown I went to the center & I noticed that Martha's car was parked on the street where she always parks the car, in front of Buckpitt, a business next to Planned Parenthood.  They do NOTHING!  I went into the center & said to her "why are you here so early Martha" for it was 12:40pm?  She said that she was seeing a client & would talk to me later.  I said "okay" & went about emptying out my car with bags of food for our lunch & supper.  Then all of a See full size imagesudden the man at the taxi company, which has an office in the building where we have the center, told me that a police officer was writing out a ticket out for Martha's car.  I rushed outside to my car & got my purse & walked over to the police car & said "officer I'm putting the money in the meter right now".  He said "no problem".  I put 4 quarters in the meter & thanked the officer & God for not giving Martha a $35 parking ticket.  Close call.  Later I told Martha & she thanked me.  I was happy that the taxi man had told me of the situation & that I had the quarters & the police officer was nice.  Thanks Lord!!
 
I went to the Material Aid Room to get the literature box & the graphic sign & went to my post on the front lines.  I was there for about 10 minutes by myself  when Carole came, I was so glad.  A few minutes later Donna arrived. 
 
 
Martha was in the Rose Room counseling our client who was with her friend, assisting with a pregnancy test.  The one girl is See full size imagea rape survivor & conceived in that rape & she bore a son who is 3 years old now.  Never did she think to abort this little child.  She is pregnant again from a consensual relationship & will not abort this little child either, even if the father wants her, she will not do it. We always speak about abstinence with our clients. no sex outside of marriage.  If this was abided to, the world would be a better & healthier place, to live in. 
 
Another young girl came into the Rose Room for a pregnancy test with her girlfriend & she was negative but cried when See full size imageMartha asked her if she had ever been pregnant before, for she had had an abortion in the past & was regretting it.  She started to cry.  Her girlfriend told her to stop crying & Martha told her that it was healing & that she needed to grieve for what she did.  Martha gave her the post abortion brochures to take with her, to get forgiveness from God & healing.  What's with her girlfriend??  Maybe she was post abortive too??

School bus driver stopped to talk to me.  There was no children See full size imageon the bus.  She told me that her niece had had an abortion at 6 months.  She told her that she would adopt the baby but she went ahead & did it.  She got pregnant soon after her abortion & kept the baby.  Lots of women try to get pregnant after their abortion due to the fact that feel such a loss.  I gave her post abortion information to give to her for forgiveness & healing & also a Truth packet & A DVD on Growth & Development & Maafa 21 & the 12 week old rubberized baby.  She gave me her name & I gave her mine.  She said "thank you' & off she went down the street.  This was a blessing for not to many buses have stopped, to talk to us, over the years.  I think only on 4 occasions, in the past 14 years, that we've been out there praying & protesting. 

It was raining & very windy.  It's always harder when we get aSee full size imagell wet & icky.  I need to get a good hat & waterproof gloves & put my boots on too.  I usually bring a change of clothes with me, on the days that I'm out on the front lines, just in case of a change of weather.  The signs blow away & one did & hit the Planned Parenthood sign that out in the front of their killing clinic.  It didn't break it for they just put up a new sign to advertise who they are.  Ick!!

Martha ripped her coat. I felt so badly for Martha for she just gSee full size imageot a new jacket & it was waterproof & had a hood on it too. Donna was putting her tables that she had let us use into her car when she pinched her finger.  Ouch!!  What pain she had.  It hurt so badly that she had to go in the Great Room for a few minutes to sit down on the sofa to recoup.  Carole brought a client home, that didn't have a ride for it was raining hard & Martha brought Sandy, who helps out in the center on Tuesdays, home too. 
 
We gave away lots of children's clothes & we were happy that most of the moms had cars, to bring the items home.  There were some very nasty people who drove by showing us their IQ (the bird).  If only they would stop to talk to us & get the help that they need from their abortions.  They're angry at us because we show them what they did in secret, which it never is.  "All that is done in darkness will be exposed to the light", the Bible says. 

A man & his wife or his girlfriend went into Planned Parenthood with a baby, it was so sad to see this scenario.  See full size imageThis bothers me so much to see someone bringing a baby or children into this cess pool where they murder little babies.  This is an evil place & no one should enter it's door that lead to no where.     

Carole, our prayer warrior who is out on the front lines twice a wSee full size imageeek, her little granddaughter Peyton is in stable though critical condition.  She is back on the respirator.  She has had many surgeries & the last surgery on her eyes took its toll on her.  She was born 1lb. 6ozs. about 4 months ago.  Please pray for her & for her family. 
 
The death escort, at Planned Parenthood, was butting in when I was talking to the people, that came over to us on the sidewalk, to speak to us & I told her to mind her own business.  Later on she left & walked down the street & she came back about an hour later & she took her cat to the vets across the street.  I guess cats are more important than the children, that are being slaughtered across the street at Planned Parenthood, where she was there helping them to be killed.  How confused can you be!!!!
 
A young man was sitting on the bench in front of Planned Parenthood & I invited him over to speak to us.  He laughed & See full size imagecame over to challenge us he thought.  He looked so typically to who we usually talk to. He had a smirk on his face & had a attitude that he was right & we were wrong.  He was very confused & I mean that with love.  The first thing that he said was "God is pro choice".  "What" I said.  What are you saying?  God is pro life & He condemns abortion. Then he said to me was "what religion are you"?  I said "I'm Catholic".  He then said "you need to give that up".  I replied back to him "I'll never give up the one true Church, never".  Then he said to me "I'm a Catholic too".  "What" I said "please come back to the Church".  He then went on to say that it's the right of the woman to have an abortion & that it was her body & if she gets pregnant after a rape she should have an abortion if she wanted one".  I told him that the Bible, which is the Word of God,  "Thou shall not murder".  He said that he knew someone who was raped & had tSee full size imagehe baby & killed herself because the baby reminded her of the rapist.  I said that I was sorry to hear this but abortion would still have been wrong.  Maybe she needed counseling & supervision & maybe could have placed her baby up for adoption & maybe she suffered from postpartum depression, which is common in all moms, not just those moms who were raped.  I told him of my sister who was raped & she gave birth to her daughter & didn't commit suicide.  I was so sad to hear this story but abortion would not have been the answer.  Women who have abortions have also committed suicide.  Donna spoke with him for a little while too.  He left because he wasn't getting to far with us, with his thinking.  He went back into Planned Parenthood. I didn't see him until hours later when he drove out of the parking lot with his girlfriend.  I hollered over to him to go to Confession for the Lord was waiting for him & then he could receive the true Body, Blood & Divinity of Jesus.  I also said "hope that you didn't have your baby killed here today".  Off he went & the girlfriend who was in the front seat hide her face.  God only knows what they did in there.  Lord have Mercy.  He was so mixed up & my heart sank. So many Catholics are so confused these days.  I will pray for them all to come back to the Church who loves them & will guide them to Heaven. 
 
After the young man went back into Planned Parenthood the two females, who were sitting on the bench with this young See full size imageman who we just spoke with, came over to us on the sidewalk.  I offered them help & asked if they were pregnant.  The girl to my right said that she was.  I felt sick for I new what was coming next.  I said "you're not thinking of having an abortion"?  "Oh yes I am" she replied.  I had a feeling she was going to say this.  Then the other woman said "I'm her mother & I don't want to raise a child".  Lord have Mercy in what I'm hearing.  Then Donna started to talk to them & I went over to the literature box to get the 12 week old rubberized baby to give to them & also the DVD on Growth & Development & Maafa 21: Black Genocide in the 21st. Century, which the mother took.  We spoke to them for a few more minutes & then the mother said that she had to use the bathroom.  Donna offered her our center & she said that she was going back into Planned Parenthood to talk to them.  Why would you talk to people that are willing to kill children?  Then Donna said to them "please watch the DVD before you do anything".  The mother said "okay".  I had also mentioned to them that the baby's heart begins to beat at 18-21 days after conception.  Then the young girl looked at the rubberized baby & said that she thought that the baby gets hands & feet at 2 months.  No I said that comes earlier that 2 months.  Prayer & education are the keys.  They went back into Planned Parenthood & I only hope & pray that the mother took the daughter home to watch the DVD & not have had her grandchild killed today.   



 Wednesday, November 17, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood 

It was another rainy, dark, cold, windy day on the front lines.  See full size imageWe get though it through God's help.  I had a hood on today.  The signs blow away & we have to bend down all the time to pick them up which is fine.  We want to witness to everyone who walks by & drives by & goes into Planned Parenthood.  We want to be used by God to save lives. 

I was in the center & when I came back outside Martha & Carole told me about a white man pulling a black girl into Planned Parenthood. Martha told him to stop.  I used the mega phone to call out to her to tell her that we can help her & if she comes out to us we will protect her.  We will even call the police if she wanted us to.  She never came out but he did. He See full size imagecame over to the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood, to smoke.  I call over to him & gave him a piece of my mind, I didn't use bad words or swear, but I spoke to him with sternness of what he did to her.  After he finished his smoke he turned around & looked at me with his beady eyes & walked back into Planned Parenthood.  I never saw him or her come out & either did Tucker, for he comes on the front lines from 4-6pm.  Maybe someone came & picked them up.  Poor baby!!  I hope & pray that she can get away from that man.

A volunteer from the Women's Care Center Pregnancy Center, See full size imagein Charlotte, came & got 5 pregnancy tests for their center. Their order won't come in until Monday & they don't want to be without, I can't blame them. They bless us when we need baby clothes for our material aid room.  It's nice that the pregnancy centers can help each other.  We are a 'team'. 

Mary, from the St. John's Religious Shop in Spencerport, 
See full size imagedropped off the pamphlets of 'How to Say the Rosary'.  We  put the pamphlets in an individual bag with the rosary.  Our friend Bob George, made for our ministry, 150 rosaries for our 'hand out' ministry, for the people on the street & to put in the Truth packets, to teach people how to say the rosary, so they can get closer to God through Mother Mary.  Thanks Bob.  :)

Christine , our client & friend, called & said that she was going to stop by the center after she went to RG&E to turn on her gas.  The weather was so bad that she took the bus home.  Don't blame her.

Martha gave a pregnancy test to a young girl that was going to PP but came to our center with her girlfriend & her boyfriend.  Martha brought them into the Rose Room & the girl was sitting on her boyfriend's lap & Martha said to her "here's a chair", pointing to an empty chair in the room.  She got up & went over & sat down on it.  The girl said that she heard us outside See full size imageof Planned Parenthood, a couple of weeks ago, when her friend was at Planed Parenthood having an abortion but she wanted to support her friend, so she didn't come out.  Gage!!  So they are now BOTH post abortive.  It will effect them for the rest of their lives.  Lord have Mercy!

A young woman came from behind the bushes & told me that she didn't believe in abortion & wanted to know where to go for exams.  I gave her our Truth packet & the doctors list.  She See full size imagethanked me & said that if she was pregnant she wouldn't do that to her baby, pointing to our graphic sign. She told us to keep up the great work that we are doing.  Don't worry, we will.  I told her that she was a good woman, one with a heart.  She smiled & walked away.

An older Africian American woman came into the parking lot & See full size imagestopped her car & said that she didn't believe in abortion & that she was picking up he granddaughter for she was there for birth control. We told her about the effects of birth control & gave her a Truth packet, with lots of information in it & a teaching DVD to educate her & her family.  She said "thank you" & drove in to pick up her granddaughter. 

A nasty guy drove by me, on the sidewalk, showing me his IQ (the bird) & I told him to repent.  Where are the real men???

A guy, coming out of Planned Parenthood, walked across the street hollered over to me "got condoms".  I hollered back to him "got Jesus"?  "Please repent for you are on the wrong road, sex is not worth going to hell for", I said back to him.  How sad to think that you can do want you want to without consequences.   

Sheila, our new recruit on the front lines, was with us this afternoon for an hour & she gave away a Truth packet & even went across the street to give one away to a woman, who just had come out of Planned Parenthood.  She even spent some time talking with her.  She's being Pro Active!!!  Yeah! 
 
A white car has been there at Planned Parenthood parking in tSee full size imagehe abortionist parking spot. Perhaps a  new abortionist???  Or a new car of the current abortionist Rachael Phelps.  Where do these people come from & what makes them tick?  How did they get so sick in the head??  Lord we pray for their conversions.

A car stopped with 3 women in it.  The mother who was the driver asked for a packet with a rosary in it.  I gave her a Truth packet & then the one daughter asked for one then the other daughter asked for one.  They all received a Truth packet.  I said to the mom that she was a good mom in educating her daughter & that she was a breath of fresh air & I thanked her for doing the right thing.  She smiled & they drove off. 

I had to go into the center for a few minutes & Martha was already there doing a pregnancy test so I gave on of the signs to Carole & left to go to the center to put on another sweater for it was cold & windy out there today.  When I returned Carole told me that our sign blew away & hit the PP
sign which is right in front of their building.  It didn't break but if it did it wasn't our fault.

Paula came to help out at the center with 6 of her 7 children.  She & her husband has 3 biological children & 4 adopted children.  She & her older daughter Hannah are a blessing to us.  The both organized the office & made up Truth packets. I kept them very busy. What a blessing they are.
 
A client of ours came in to get some things for her baby girl, she's ready to deliver in a few weeks.  She got some nice things & Paula will try to get her a double stroller for this baby & her 2 year old son.  She is still at the shelter but will move into her new apartment on Friday.  It was good seeing her & we will continue to assist her.

Tucker came in to get his favorite sign of the 3 babies, to go outside to witness, on the front lines. 

Valerie, our client, called & then came into the material aid room, to get some things for her family, she's expecting twins next year.  She lost her job & needs a new apartment for her family.  We gave her many nice things & Martha drove her home.

The 3 Elim Students came in at 4pm & worked doing lots of tSee full size imagehings at the center.  They said that they were thankful that God had brought them to Focus & so am I.  They folded brochures & made up signs & more Truth packets.   They helped our clients in the material aid room too, which they like to do. What a blessing they are to me.  Thank you Lord :)

Martha & I had a fast supper of thin pork chops with spaghetti & a side dish of peas.  No desert tonight & then we raced over to St. Thomas More Church to attend the Charismatic Mass at 7:30pm.  What a blessing it was.

Four men were out in front of Planned Parenthood doing work on their property.  I spoke to them & I was very upset when I did.  They saw the graphic pictures & one turned his head away & the other did give me a thumbs up but their boss who is in bed with Planned Parenthood needs to be contacted about receiving Blood Money from Planned Parenthood who murders little babies in Cold Blood for $$$.  Make your voice heard by contacting them & asking them to stop doing work at Planned Parenthood now!!  Thank you & God bless.

Great news that I want to share with you.  Suzanne, our counselor on Thursdays, calls our clients to see how they are doing & if they need anything.  Well today she found out that 2 more precious babies, that were saved from abortion, were born. The first baby was born on 11-5-10 & her name is Innocent a little girl 4lb. 11oz. mother & baby are doing well for she came a little early.  Second baby girl Anyiah was born on 11-10-10 weighing 6lbs. 11oz.  Mother & baby are also doing well. Mom needs a bassinet.  We always need baby girl & boy clothes for our moms for their children.  Thank you for all that you do for Focus in prayer & support.  We have two more babies that are are due in December & more in January to April 2011, Praise God. I'll let you know when they are born :) 


 
Tuesday, November 23, 2010 in front of Planned Parenthood
 
Carole had called me at home to tell me that she & her husband was sick with the flu & couldn't make it today.  Sorry to hear this Carole ... we wish you & your hubby well soon.  I hurried to the center after Mass, always in a hurry.  My car was full See full size imagewith boxes of children's clothes, a baby walker & a large microwave that Maria gave me to give to who needs it the most.  It turned out to be one of the taxi drivers, for his wife's friend who just had a baby & her husband is serving in another country, so she's alone without much.  We at Focus gave her some blankets for her baby girl, a bassinet & a baby swing but she needs more things, we're working on it.  So many of our clients need so much I wish that I could service them more quickly.  I do appreciate all the wonderful people that the Lord brings to us that blesses us with pac'n plays, baby & children clothes, walkers, car seats, strollers etc..  We couldn't run our pregnancy center without them :)   Sandy, who helps us out on Tuesdays had just arrived to help get the boxes out of the car.  Martha was making coffee, for she was tired & needed a boost before going out to the front lines.  Donna was already out there praying & holding her sign which read 'CHOOSE LIFE...THERE'S HOPE'.  John was with us today but I wanted him to stay in the center to do some office work, like writing thank you letters to the churches that have recently blessed us with a large tithing contribution for the work of the Focus Center.  Also to make a sign for the outside that tells people driving by that we have 'free' baby & children's clothes.  He did some other creative projects too.  He did help to bring some signs out to the sidewalk but just a few for it was sooo windy today.  Martha was now out on the sidewalk, & I always feel bSee full size imageetter when she is, for she calls out to the girls & talks to them using the megaphone.  They need to hear the Truth in order for their hearts to be touched & to turn away from Planned Parenthood.  We offer them options like good doctors & good people that can help them in their situation.  We hand out the Truth packet, where they get a great amount of information, by the brochures that we have in the bag & phone numbers too.  I always feel good when they take that packet. 
 
After all the instructions that I gave John, whom I'm very grateful for, I went out with a sign to the sidewalk to join the team.  Mary S. had arrived & then the lady with the white dog.  Don't get me wrong I'm not blaming the dog.  This lady  drove into Planned Parenthood with it looked like her older daughter in her late twenties or early thirties.  She stopped the car to say to us to "get a life".  "Oh yea", I said "we're trying to save tSee full size imagehe lives of these children that Planned Parenthood kills".  Off she went into the parking lot to park her car & let her daughter out.  Then she came out of the car with her white poodle on a leach.  "I called over to her to tell her that children are more important than dogs, & if she cared about animals then why can't she care about people too?  Here she comes walking over to the fence, where we stand to call out to the people, when they get out of their cars.  I always feel like See full size imageI'm in jail, when they walk over to speak to us, at the fence.  Some come around the bushes to talk to us face to face, which is better for communication, though more dangerous for us.   She rattled on & on & was saying nothing.  Her poor dog probably thought she was crazy & was embraced to be with her.  See I told you that I wasn't blaming the dog.  I asked Martha to take over & again this poor lady ranted & raved about, well we don't know???  She went back to her car & stayed there until she took her dog for another walk about 20 See full size imageminutes later.  The third walk, for the person that she dropped off was still in there, for what I don't know.  This time I was alone, it was about 4pm & Martha was in the center doing a pregnancy test & everyone else had gone.  She turned the corner where the bushes are & there she met me face to face.  I really don't think that she though that we were still out there & she wanted a longer walk for her dog.  Surprise!!  She snarled, not the dog but her, & quickly pointed at the graphic pictures of the aborted baby that was decapitated.  She said to me "you better be careful your condemning your soul, doing this" & she pointed to the graphic sign.  I said back to her "how can I be condemning my soul when I'm doing something good"?  "It's your soul I'm worried about".  Then I said "why are you not angry at the people in there that are doing this to the babies, pointing to the sign, but you're angry at us for showing you the truth"?  She snarled once again & walked away back to her car with her white poodle.  Only God will be able to get through her.  Martha was back outside with me now, it was about 4:20pm & the woman with the dog & her daughter were driving out of the Planned Parenthood parking lot.  The car stopped & the passenger rolled down the window & said "they do other things in there not just abortions, they give out birth control to teenagers".  "Really, birth control kills babies too, I said".  The mouth of the driver hung down & she started to mouth off again.  Didn't understand a single work she mumbled.  They drove off into the evening. They just didn't want to hear the Truth.  Lord please help these two women & bring them to your Truth.  Amen. 
 
See full size imageThe death escort with the very short hair was there doing her harm to those going into the abortion mill.  I went into the center to get a chair for Carmen, who is about 70 years old, who stands across the street holding the Our Lady of Guadeloupe sign.  As I was crossing the street the death escort was walking across the street to the other side too.  I met her across the street, it so happened.  I looked at her & my spirit cringed.  She had no affect, dead in the face with a cold fixed stare that only looked ahead.  I spoke to her with sternness but with kindness to what harm she is doing to the poor victims of Planned Parenthood.  No response ... "I see dead people"!  It's so sad being there on the front lines especially when people are non responsive.  We always said that we would rather have someone scream & holler at us, for they still have a conscious, rather than those who have no affect, for they probably lost theirs.
