Another violent act against pro-life sidewalk counselors, are they on the increase?

The media continues to portray pro-lifers as crazed and violent people who go around attacking women, but the truth is, there are many acts of violence that occur against activists who oppose abortion. Case in point is an incident which occurred recently in Orlando Florida where two pro-life sidewalk counselors say they felt threatened as they warned the parents of a young girl taking their daughter for an abortion that the clinic had a bad reputation.

Pro-lifers Michele Herzog and Sandra Diaz were outside the EPOC abortion clinic in Orlando, Florida, which is owned by the notorious James Pendergratft when they had an altercation with an abortion advocate. Diaz told Live Action News that when they noticed when a car with New Hampshire license plates pull into the abortion clinic they observed how young the girl in the vehicle was.

    I told Michele she is very young.

Diaz said that Herzog, who regularly counsels outside Florida abortion clinics, was only trying to give the couple some materials warning them about how dangerous that facility was when the woman in the car came towards her in a very aggressive manner.

    The woman came out of the back seat and didn’t go towards the abortion clinic. She went at Michele in an aggressive way.

Diaz said the woman was screaming at Michele and making describing her daughter’s preborn baby as small claiming that the baby would not feel pain. In a video of the incident provided to Live Action News, you can hear the woman angrily say:

    The fetus is this small.

Herzog pointed out to the angry woman that abortion clinic kills children up to 24 weeks. That is when the woman noticed that Diaz had her camera phone out and was recording the altercation. Herzog detailed what happened next:

    The woman began screaming at us and ran toward me and stood right in my face, it looked like she was going to punch me so Sandra got her camera out to video tape, and when she saw that, she went ballistic and lunged toward Sandra and ripped the phone out of her hands. She walked off with it and wouldn’t give it back.

Screen grabs from the recording clearly show the pro-abortion woman lunging at Diaz.

Diaz said that she asked the woman to please return her phone but the abortion mom charged to the other side of driveway, where her son was standing and yelled at him as well.

    I told her get away from my son. And I realized that she was being demonic so I said ‘I rebuke you Satan.

Diaz and Herzog flagged down a police officer and as he pulled into the clinic, the woman ran to his car but, according to Diaz did not immediately listen to the officer to back away. The officer eventually retrieved the phone and returned it to Diaz where the video Diaz was able to capture collaborated Diaz’s story. Diaz was given a victim sheet to fill out and has requested that theft charges be filed against the women. She has yet to hear what authorities intend to do.

Meanwhile, Diaz states that the young girl never had the abortion and the family left the clinic after the incident.

Police called to Planned Parenthood after man threatens prolife with gun

In another example that occurred over a year ago, Gloria Boze, who is a regular outside a Planned Parenthood in Colorado, told Live Action News that after she was threatened with a gun. authorities refused to prosecute the offender. According to the pro-life sidewalk counselor, she petitioned a man to take his wife and leave Planned Parenthood when he threatened her with a gun. Boze recalled his words.

    I have a gun in my car, and I’m going to shoot you.

She said their pro-life group immediately called the police who arrived within minutes as the man was about to leave Planned Parenthood.

    He was taken out of his car, placed in handcuffs, and put in the back of a police cruiser.

She said that when police searches his car they found the fully loaded weapon in the back seat.

    There was also an ammo clip hanging from the rear view mirror. We were all so shocked.

    After about 2 hours the man was released and went back in to Planned Parenthood. It was stunning to think that a man could threaten to kill you, be found to have a loaded gun in his car, and then return to his life, no harm, no foul. The police never
    spoke to us again to let us know that the man had been let go.

According to Boze, when the police report came out there was no mention of the gun whatsoever!

    Because we had the video, and told them so, they amended their report and then included the gun. Several months later I got a call from the district attorney handling the case informing me that she would not bring it to trial. The reason being that there was no way that a jury would find the defendant guilty due to the emotionally charged reasons this man was at Planned Parenthood. He and his wife were at the abortion clinic because she was dying of terminal cancer and had to terminate the pregnancy. Absurd.

And, where guns are concerned this isn’t the first time pro-lifers have been threatened. In 2010, Operation Rescue documented that an abortion advocate threatened to gun down a pro-life activists at a late-term abortion clinic in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Also in 2010, Charleston Police arrested abortionist Gary Boyle after he pointed a gun at three abortion protesters near the back entrance of the Charleston’s Women’s Medical Center abortion center in South Carolina.

In 2015, an Indiana man was arrested after he threatened anti-abortion activists with a gun at an Illinois Planned Parenthood. Then, in July of that same year, Bristol, Tennessee, police arrested Derrick Doss just outside the Bristol Women’s Clinic abortion clinic after he brandished a gun at pro-life demonstrators as he walked into clinic with his girlfriend. And in North Carolina police refused to arrest another man who pulled out a weapon to threaten Abortion Abolitionists outside the A Woman’s Choice abortion clinic in Raleigh.

Bud Shaver, Executive Director of Protest ABQ, who is a regular presence outside a late term abortion clinic in Albuquerque, New Mexico, owned by abortionist Curtis Boyd, along with his wife Tara and others, has been a frequent target of violence. He said the real violence comes from abortion advocates.

    We are using every peaceful and legal avenue available to expose the violent atrocities perpetuated against babies in the womb. Abortion is the ultimate act of violence and from our experience here in New Mexico, those who advocate for the extreme position of killing a baby for any reason through all nine months of pregnancy are the violent ones.

I admire the courage of pro-life side walk counselors

I admire courage and especially the courage of pro-life sidewalk counselors. Case in point, most people would back away from anyone threatening them while they stood for preborn children outside an abortion clinic but not veteran pro-life counselor Michele Herzog.

Michele-Herzog-2-158x300

In full disclosure, I know Michele very well. We both stood in the trenches together for years outside South Florida abortion clinics. She and I also had the unfortunate opportunity to attend the funeral of a woman who died from a legal abortion. The woman’s name was Carolina Gutierrez and I wrote about that experience to some degree here.

Michele has experienced abortion and therefore she has a lot of compassion for the women. But after becoming aware of the reality of what abortion does to the child, Michele also takes an unrelenting stand for the babies. Time after time I have watched Michele stand her ground in defense of little babies. She has been the recipient of all sorts of threats over her many years outside abortion facilities. But, Michele remained unyielding even when rocks were being thrown at her. She also stood up to an abortionist who had given her the most obscene gestures.

Michele represents a number of pro-life warriors who faithfully stand as the last defense to cry out for children about to be executed. Everyone is a hero and each should be commended. Often, they stand alone and a majority of what they receive is negative – yet they return day after day after day. I know this, because, although I know some personally I also follow many of these faithful activists on Facebook and I read the daily comments they post. Many share how often they are abused by the police, abortion clinic staff, passers-by, and patients.

It was such a post that prompted me to write this piece. It took place outside a Florida abortion clinic earlier this month. Michele and others were crying out for a baby whose mother had just driven into the Epoc abortion clinic. Michele wrote about what took place:

“This woman came with her abortion bound friend to the Epoc abortuary on Saturday and was as vile and wicked as they come. She laughed and encouraged her friend to go through with killing her baby and then left her there. Sandra and I wanted to make sure to plead with her one more time to do what she could to get her friend out and to save the innocent baby, so we waited at the corner.”

“When I first got there she told me she was going to kick my ___ if I didn’t move away. I had given the ministry phone to Sandra’s daughter so she could take pictures and video throughout the afternoon and in this video the woman in the car was ready to jump out after Sandra’s daughter.” That video can be viewed here.

In her usual calm way, Michele asked the woman if she was issuing a threat and reiterated her desire to see her friend’s baby saved from abortion. Michele then pointed out to the woman that the clinic’s owner has no license. James Pendergraft’s medical license has been suspended indefinitely by the state medical board and he was recently arrested in South Carolina for operating an illegal mobile abortion clinic there.

“We tell every abortion bound women and their companions of Pendergraft’s arrest and that they found with instruments with old blood and tissue on them. We tell them of the mobile abortion clinic he was running and the drugs found. Two couples left that day and chose life for their babies, but the rest of the women….none of that seemed to faze them,” she told Live Action News.

Instead of going back to the abortion clinic and warning her friend or simply driving away, the abortion supporter picked up a gallon jug of water she had in her car and hurled it at Michele.

Water abortion Michele Herzog 2

These kind of incidents have become regular events for pro-life activists. Earlier this week, another pro-life group had their signs illegally removed by an abortion supporter during an awareness campaign in a public overpass.

The intolerance of advocates of “personal choice” is increasingly more vocal and at times vicious. It is another sign of the desperation that the abortion lobby feels as it looses ground in this war. Given the current environment, it is only a matter of time before another abortion advocate physically harms a pro-lifer.

But, Michele and many others who stand between the baby and death on a daily basis do not think about their own risk. For them, their one and only concern is to stop the killing of each baby that day. Perhaps water is not such a scary thing – but – the impressive thing I noted in Michele’s latest video was how unflinching she was knowing the woman was threatening her. The truth is, I would have flinched or ducked or maybe even backed down. But not Michele and that is why I admire her courage and it is why I admire the courage of so many pro-life activists across the country.

Abortionist steals sign from pro-lifers, endangers drivers on major highway, police called

Felski-F.M.-Emil-MFlorida abortionist Emil F. Felski, DO an Orlando area abortionist who has worked at EPOC abortion clinic and Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando., delivers babies at Florida Hospital and has an OB/Gyn practice where he also kills babies.

Felski Med Board

According to pro-lifer Michele Herzog who sidewalk counsels at abortion clinics in Florida, Felski doesn’t let his OB patients know about his abortion bound patients.

Wednesday as two pro-lifers stood in front of Felski’s office exposing that Fleski kills babies, the abortionist drove up, parked his car in the lane of a major highway, and proceeded to take one of the signs from pro-life protesters.

Felski Car Highway

The sign read: Repent, Dr Felski:

Felski Repent Sign

According to Herzog, “Shortly after they arrived, they noticed Felski driving toward them on Hwy 436 which is a very busy road. He didn’t pull into the driveway though, he just stopped his car on this highway, got out taking pictures of my friends, Amber and Allura, and then proceeded to pick up one of the signs that said “Repent Emil Felski,” folded in half and put it in the car with him, then driving into the medical complex.”

Herzog said that she received a call from Allura, and after talking it over and seeking counsel, they decided to call 911, here is what Allura had to say: “We called 911 to report that he had taken my property, and had also caused an obstruction to traffic by leaving his car unattended on the Hwy, (He only had to drive a few feet further to pull into the driveway of the medical plaza, and he wouldn’t have caused any danger to us or the drivers on Hwy 436).

Felski Takes Pic

“Two unmarked police cars arrived and the officers immediately told us that my sign was illegally leaning against a Department of Transportation sign. We said we hadn’t realized that and wouldn’t do it again The older officer then folded his arms over his chest as he said we couldn’t “harass or prevent people from coming in or going out” of this medical facility. He added that while taking pictures of people isn’t illegal, “maybe these particular people didn’t want their pictures taken and it could be considered a form of harassment.” The only person we took a picture of was Felski, but I assured the officer that we run all these questions and situations by our attorneys to make sure we aren’t breaking any laws.”

“The officers left to talk to Felski, then came back with my sign, with the folds permanently creased in it. The younger officer instructed us to not lean our signs against DOT poles, and it was obvious that they thought they were done now and everything was fine! When Amber mentioned the danger Felski had put us and others in by leaving his car in the street, we were assured that “he has been counseled about that” so it wouldn’t be a problem anymore. I said we wanted to press charges, and laid out the reasons why. The older officer, with a smirk, said, “okay!” And they turned around and walked to the car.

“The younger one brought the report back for me to fill out, and he seemed nicer and more considerate, but the older one was condescending and sarcastic, very authoritative. He treated us both as if we were ignorant children who could be pushed around and intimidated. In fact, he seemed to be very biased against us and our rights. We wonder if there could be some kind of ties between him and the abortionist. But God gave both Amber and me a holy boldness to stand up to these bullies….including Felski….and to not back down out of fear! When God calls us to be a voice for the voiceless, He gives us the grace and strength to go forth in His mighty name!”

Felski General

This abortionist is hot- according to pro-lifer Patte Smith on May 17, 2008, “Emil Felski has been a notorious abortionist in Central Florida for many, many years. He was seen attending Northland week after week. When I asked him what he was getting out of the sermons Felski flipped me the finger.”

felski and gun

But worse, this gun-toting abortionist Emil Felski has pulled a gun in a threatening fashion on pro-lifers.

According to Herzog, “It happened a couple of years ago when he was performing abortions at Planned Parenthood and flashed his gun around to intimidate pro-lifers. That was not a one time incident and he was carrying this as he was going in to definitely intimidate the pro-lifers.”

Herzog said, that police were not called at the time, although they did snap a picture of Felski as proof.

In addition Herzog says, “We’ve also done awareness campaigns in front of Felski’s gated community three times and two times he got out of his car and into our faces with the camera. His insulted our black friend with racial slurs.”

Herzog says pro-lifers who were there told her that abortionist Emil Felski came out to take a picture and told Herzog’s pro-life friend, “Turn around and let me take a picture of that black ass.”

Late Term Abortion – Big Business in Florida

pendergraftAbortionist James Scott Prendergraft

Abortionist James Scott Pendergraft owns a chain of abortion clinics in Florida called:

Orlando Women’s Center (here)
EPOC Clinic (here)
Ocala Women’s Center
Women’s Center of Hyde Park (here)
Fort Lauderdale Women’s Center (here)

Abortion is BIG BUSINESS and Later Term Abortions even bigger !

Abortionist James Scott Pendergraft has a sordid history which you can read here

He recently lost a $36 million lawsuit and because he had not made any payments to the woman he injured, his office equipment was seized. But within weeks, the abortionist was up and running and in business yet again.

In 2012, Operation Rescue caught late-term abortionist James S. Pendergraft IV and his Maryland accomplice, Harold O. Alexander, red-handed operating an illicit late-term abortion mill in Forestville, MD. Learn more about that here

According to the Forerunner Blog, Pendergraft has lost his medical license five times in the state of Florida:

The most recent suspension stems from unpaid fines going back to 2006. A Florida Department of Health suspension order filed on Friday, April 19, 2013 reads in part:

Suspension Language – Respondent’s Florida medical license shall be indefinitely suspended until such time as Respondent complies with the following outstanding terms in the Final Order (DOH-10-0208-FF-MQA) issued in Case Number 2006-05930:

A. Respondent must pay the outstanding a fine in the amount of nineteen thousand ($19,000.00) dollars;

B. Respondent must pay costs in the amount of one-hundred two thousand three hundred and twenty-one cents ($102,303.22)….

Addresses – Respondent must keep current residence and practice addresses on file with the Board. Respondent shall notify the Board within ten (10) days of any changes of said addresses.

Pendergraft’s first three suspensions were the result of evidence that he did illegal third trimester abortions in 2004 and 2005. These suspensions were imposed in 2006, 2007 and 2009. The fourth suspension was imposed in 2010 on evidence that Pendergraft

Allowed a woman employee to administer narcotics to patients although she had no license to do so;
Knew she abused drugs but gave her “free reign” to order drugs under his name;
Prescribed steroids for the woman without medical justification.

Pendergraft’s license then came up for review on April 24th, 2012. The complaint stated that Pendergraft still owed a fine of $121,303.22 from the time of the previous suspension of his license in 2010. As a result of a pledge to pay his fines, James Pendergraft’s medical license status was changed from “suspended” to “probation.” This meant he could operate under the supervision of another doctor. Then in February 2013, the state board suspended Pendergraft one more time, this time “indefinitely” for failure to pay.

As far back as 1999, a Florida Agency for Health Care Administration report noted the following incidents of babies that had been born alive at several of Pendergraft’s abortion clinics:

Interview with the physician revealed there was an incident … where a patient allegedly went out to get some lunch after starting the procedure, got lost, delivered a viable fetus in the car, and patient and fetus were sent immediately to the hospital. Baby lived 2 days. Policy changed, patients no longer leave after getting medication…. Physician also stated that sometimes an 18 week old fetus may twitter but this is not considered “viable.”

On April 2nd, 2006, 911 Emergency received a frantic call from a woman claiming her friend had given birth to a live baby at Pendergraft’s EPOC clinic in Orlando. Harry Perper was the abortionist on duty. When the mother alerted medical staff that her baby was born alive, the staff told her to leave the baby in the toilet. An autopsy report and photos revealed a perfectly formed baby boy who died from premature birth, confirming part of the mother’s story.

So after several run ins with the Medical Board over his complete disregard for unborn children and women- Pendergraft remains in business. Abortion is very lucrative as is obvious from the many ways that Pendergraft advertises online:

And on YouTube- Pendergraft wants to suck every dollar he can out of the late term abortion business by advertising to every city he can reach:

Abortion is BIG Business for Pendergraft. His advertisements are produced to lure women into feeling safe. On his “About Us” page he refers to himself as Dr. James S Pandergraft, despite that fact that his medical license has been suspended several times:

Here Pendergraft advertises abortions 3 to 34 weeks even though they are only legal (for any reason) up to 24 weeks in Florida:

Why all the effort to advertise, to keep running abortion clinics and stay in business after several run-ins with the state – the only explanation is that Late Term Abortion is BIG BUCKS for James Pendergraft !!! What do you think? Leave a comment –

In Florida, A West Palm Beach judge has ordered Dr. Zvi Harry Perper to give up his passport and his right to practice medicine. Perper is yet another abortionist who has worked at one of James Pendergraft’s chain of five late term abortion clinics in Florida. Abortionist Perper was arrested and charged with racketeering and drug trafficking in a raid on Delray Beach Pain Management a clinic started by Kent Murry, a convicted drug smuggler and career criminal. Authorities say Perper, ranked 22nd in the nation among medical practitioners in ordering oxycodone. Perper was also on duty at the EPOC abortion clinic in Orlando in 1995 when Baby Rowan was born alive and left to die, and has been disciplined for performing a botched abortion in 2003. He faces 18 counts, including racketeering, trafficking in oxycodone and conspiracy to traffic in oyxcodone.
