Pro-life picket of Planned Parenthood abortionist Philip F. Waterman’s residence – 1/8/2012
The pro-life community of Naples and Fort Myers, Florida once again visited Waterman’s neighborhood on Sunday, January 8, 2012.
Jim Finegan told the story of how residential pickets began in southwest Florida.
“There are a lot of God-fearing northern snow birds wintering in Florida and we look forward to joining with these fine youths, the future leaders of the pro-life movement, in making Waterman and his neighbors uncomfortable.”
Terese Flanigan told us about recent efforts at the abortion mills and Waterman’s home including a story about Waterman trying to run her down with his Ford town car.
“I was hoping he’d hit he. Then he’d find himself in a lawsuit,” she said.
Residential awareness campaigns in abortionists’ neighborhoods have resulted in a number of them quitting their blood trade. Recent “retirees” have reportedly included Wallace W. Mclean in Naples and Vera Stefanac in Orlando.

In Chapter 37 of Joe Scheidler’s landmark book, CLOSED: 99 Ways to Stop Abortion, pro-life activists are encouraged to picket the abortionists’ homes:
We go to the neighborhoods of abortionists…because they do not like it. They usually are not proud of being abortionists, and often they even guard from their community the fact that they are involved in abortion. If it were widely known that they are abortionists, they might be very uncomfortable in their communities, and their communities might be uncomfortable with them.
I saw this take place firsthand when we used to picket the entrance to the exclusive Inverness subdivision where abortionist Vinod Goyal lives. To say his neighbors were uncomfortable would be an understatement.

Picket To Begin In Florida
And now four of the bright yellow warning signs which we held are on their way to Florida to educate another community of the threat that lies in their midst.
Ten years ago Naples, the crown jewel of southern Florida, had a stain on its pristine white sands. Abortionist Wallace McLean had moved into the community and was financing his beautiful home, located in an exclusive complex near the ocean, by spilling the blood of pre-born babies.
Though the Naples Pro Life Council picketed his office on a regular basis, McLean continued to ply his trade with impunity.
Just One Picket
Coming from Chicago, I was aware of the effectiveness, and legality, of picketing abortionist’s homes. I also knew the unstoppable power of prayer.
We witnessed for life in front of his home just once but it was enough to plant the seeds of discomfort in McLean’s neighbors. They learned the truth about how the affable doctor made his living; he had betrayed his oath to heal, choosing instead to violently end the lives of innocent babies.
Within days the entire city learned the truth thanks to media coverage of the prayerful picket.
A few days after our picket McLean’s spokesperson called the President of the Naples Pro Life Council to say the doctor had gotten the message; he would no longer engage in the killing of the unborn.
New Naples Abortionist
Sadly, last September Planned Parenthood announced they would again be spilling the blood of the pre-born in Naples once again. They had hired Philip Waterman, “a circuit abortionist” who lives in Coral Gables, north of Fort Myers, to kill pre-born babies every Monday in Naples.
There has been a pro-life presence in front of the Planned Parenthood every day he plies his grisly trade. In addition, the diocese of Venice has a Forty Days for Life prayer vigil ongoing in Naples at this time.
Student Leads The Effort
Last Saturday, a student from Ave Maria University announced he was organizing a picket of Waterman’s house in Coral Gables. I can’t tell you how proud I am of this young man, and the adult sponsor, a lawyer, who encouraged the students to organize this effort.
I look forward to the date being set within the first few weeks of March and anticipate a large participation from the students and residents of Naples, Fort Myers, and Coral Gables. Once the details are set I will have them posted on the Pro-Life Action League’s blog.
There are a lot of God-fearing northern snow birds wintering in Florida and we look forward to joining with these fine youths, the future leaders of the pro-life movement, in making Waterman and his neighbors uncomfortable.
Please pray for the success of this effort.

NAPLES, Florida, May 26, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A possible botched-abortion victim had to be transported from a Naples abortion clinic by ambulance on Monday, as abortion clinic workers blocked the patient from view with a black tarp, reported the Naples Daily News.
The regular crowd of pro-life witnesses watched in dismay as the victim, a patient at Planned Parenthood of Collier County, was transported to an area hospital in the early afternoon hours. Photographs submitted to the local newspaper show abortion clinic workers holding up a black tarp to block view of the victim entering the ambulance.
Abortionist Philip Waterman of Cape Coral only performs abortions at the Naples clinic on Mondays.
Char Wendel, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood, declined to say whether the patient was the victim of a botched abortion, telling the Daily News only that “we are a medical facility and we respond to emergencies.”
Pro-lifer Fred Goduti told the newspaper that the ambulance call was the first since the clinic began performing abortions on Sept. 14 of last year. Prior to that, the Pro-Life Action league reports that Naples had been abortion-free for over a decade, after pro-lifers pressured the abortionist Wallace McLean to quit by picketing his home.
“We were praying this would not happen,” Goduti said. “It is inevitable it would happen.”
The dissemination of the story, which was picked up by Fox News, shows a shift in how the media handles such stories, said Operation Rescue president Troy Newman. “Not that long ago, no news outlet would have touched this story,” said Newman.
Newman commented on the “sheets of shame” Planned Parenthood employees used to hide the victim from view, which he said “could not keep the truth from getting out that their organization endangers the lives of women when it takes the lives of pre-born babies.”
“For many years we have tried to get the media to cover documented cases of ambulances transporting injured women from abortion clinics. Now it is finally happening. This exposure could eventually help close this clinic, and others like it, out of concern for public safety,” he added, urging witnesses to file a complaint with the state medical board.

The clinic performs abortions only on Mondays.

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!
Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.
Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification
In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.
By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism
Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner
The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.
Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.
Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.
