Flip Benham Arrested for Malachi Sign in New Haven, CT
Marilyn Carroll & Marc Caiani reporting
Saturday morning we were off to Planned Parenthood in New Haven. We took our normal positions for sidewalk counseling and had the sound system for praise and worship and street preaching. Pastor Flip was on Whitney Ave holding a Malachi sign in one hand and his Bible in the other. A cop came up to him and told him to get off the street so he complied and went on the sidewalk. The same cop was later ordered to tell him to remove his sign or get arrested. When this cop went back to Flip he did not give him any ultimatum, he just took his sign and told him to get in the car.

August 14-18th we were at OH SARATOGA! with Fr. Francis and Pastor Flip. We had about 30 people from OSA-CT and OSA-National there, including Fr DeMayo. Carmen and I were able to do a radio show for Florida and I did a short clip for AFR about the police in Albany. It was an awesome event filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. We went to two abortion mills, a hospital, and 3 Catholic charities that refer to PP.

Surprise: Sex Shop Opens and Prostitution Arrests Begin
Posted August 4, 2005
Articles like this one once again give one pause for words about how ignorant elected officials can be. The City Council was warned by the public repeatedly that allowing a sex shop to open its doors only invites sex crimes. Now an arrest has occurred for the first time just a year and a few months after a shop opened on the sex shop's property and one Alderman says he hopes this is not a sign of things to come. He could not find a bookie in Los Vegas to take a bet that future sex crimes will not only occur but arrests of those caught will increase.

I am still grieved after getting back from our outreach at Hamden High School. It just continues to alarm me to see how far this generation has strayed from God and His principles. We were able to give out hundreds of literature packs and NT Bibles. I would say about half the students were receptive and half not. But even if one comes to the knowledge of the truth, it was worth it. We had some good conversations about the hard cases such as rape and others wanted to know why we were there and why we had to show the pictures. We were able to share the love of God. Overall, we had very good conversations with the ones that had ears to hear.

Ten clergy and fifty pro-lifers came out in the frigid sub-zero weather yesterday to mourn and remember all the babies killed in our community. Pastor Miller opened in prayer and Scripture. Pastors Flashman, Greco, Hawkins, Young, and called upon our Lord to end this horrible holocaust happening in our midst. Fr. Francis came all the way from Albany, New York to do battle with us against the principalities and powers of darkness. He also sang a couple of his pro-life songs and did "scripture wall" readings.

A bitter wind ripped through the Rev. Philip "Flip" Benham's hair as he turned to look at the shuttered former home of the Summit Women's Center abortion clinic on Middle Street. "In 1991 there were 2,000 freestanding abortion mills," Benham told nearly three dozen anti-abortion supporters gathered around him shortly before noon Tuesday. "Today there are just 726. Imagine that. Something is going on in the heart of this nation."

God Is Going Back to School - OSA National Campaign
12/8/04 Platt Tech, Milford, CT
Report By Marilyn Carroll with foreword by Flip Benham
Posted November 11, 2004
Seventeen concerned Christians came out to Platt Technical School in Milford today to reach out to the students. Fr. DeMayo represented the local clergy. We were able to have many conversations with them on the public sidewalk where they come to smoke. Lots of literature on abortion, abstinence, STD's and the Gospel was passed out. We also gave out "Passion" new testaments and the Books of Luke. Most of the students were polite, a few were demonic, but sad to say we see that most everywhere we go in the public arena. ...

This mom came by today to show us her baby that she originally planned to abort. She said that she had changed her mind because of the signs and what Carmen had spoken to her. She brought her baby inside the mill to show them but the clinic staff told her she had to leave. Why would that be? If the workers at the "healthcare" center really were "pro-choice" and if they really gave counseling to moms about adoption and other alternatives, then WHY DID THEY TELL HER TO LEAVE? It would be a true testimony to these moms to see another client that had come there for an abortion and changed her mind to show them how precious, each baby that is sentenced to die, really is. She was very upset seeing other moms going in to abort their babies.

But we know that abortion providers don't really want to keep abortion "safe and rare." They really want to kill as many babies as they can to make lots of money. For the love of money is the root of all evil. They don't really care about a woman's right to choose life. They want moms to choose to kill their children. What a horrible thing this is, what a shameful people we have become. Even God said three times in Jeremiah, that it is a thing so horrible He never even thought of it, or thought He would have to tell us not to do it.

About 20 saints came out to the streets to proclaim the Gospel and the truth about abortion at Bunnell High School in Stratford, CT. Everything went decently and in order. Fr deMayo and Rev. Flip Benham were there to represent the clergy. Four to five police cars were on the scene to observe and keep everything orderly. There were no problems and the police did a good job. A few staff came out but kept their distance. Government officials should not inhibit our ability to give out material to the students or interfere with the students rights to receive the information on public property.

Opinion by Stratford Star and Response
Posted October 13, 2004
"We agree. While the protestors had a right, under the First Amendment, to stand on the sidewalk in front of the school with their signs and brochures, the children and their parents had rights too. They had a right not to be confronted by graphic, upsetting images and people trying to push brochures at them. The teacher who tried to intervene on behalf of the students had a right not to be threatened with false assertions about lawsuits. And those who tried to reason with the protestors had a right not to be intimidated by a video camera in their faces."

Taking God Back to School Generates Interesting News

God went back to a government school to the joy of many students. As for the one young lady the school "needing counseling" according to the school principal, one can only imagine what counsel schools that welcome in Planned Parenthood gave her. We do know how God feels about such sorrow when we are confronted with sin. "...Yet now I am happy, not because you were made sorry, but because your sorrow led you to repentance. For you became sorrowful as God intended and so were not harmed in any way by us. Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death..."

Looking back on 2003, we give God all the glory for what He has done in the past year of ministry! 101 Babies were saved from death (totaling 1196 in fourteen years). There are now one hundred and one young Connecticut citizens alive because you were bold and courageous and came out to the streets to save lives for Jesus! 7 people confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior (totalling 351 in 14 years)! Tens of thousands of gospel literature has been passed out at seven local high schools, at the abortion mill, at Yale, Milford Hospital, porno protests, Gay Pride in New Haven, porno protests in Milford, and more. We were able to do a home bible study for eight months in one of the mom's home. We visited moms in the hospital after they had their babies. We sent out and delivered multiple packages including literature, videos, audios, Bibles, diapers, wipes, food cards, etc. You helped families pay bills, buy food, get furniture and electrical help. You helped find jobs, training programs, housing, and insurance benefits for the needy. All because you worked together with us to make this happen. We could not do this alone. We thank you for helping us help others. We also thank the AFA Law Center and Mike DePrimo for always being there for us. God always provides what we need. - Marilyn Carroll, OSA-CT

This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved-and that by God.

God Coninues to Go Back to School!

By Marilyn Carroll
Posted November 22. 2003
We continued the OSA National campaign today "God is Going Back to School." About 15 came out to Bullard Haven High School to hold signs and pass out gospel literature to teens going into the school. Even our own teens participated before they went to school. We passed out two big boxes containing approximately a thousand brochures. The truth was given to these youth on varying subjects including abortion, safe sex, abstinence, STD's, birth control, and salvation. I don't think it was a coincidence that the Lord led us to go there two days after Planned Parenthood was allowed into the school to spread their lies and give out condoms. Please pray for these youth, that the word of God would not return void but manifest into fruit for His glory. We were so grateful and blessed to have Pastor Miller and Pastor Pedro join us in this outreach endeavor. Bridgeport police were present. Everything went well.

We had another interesting day out at the killing center. The clinic lot attendant/amateur guard was arrested (I think it was for disturbing the peace). From what I saw he was complaining about prolifers holding signs near the fence, saying not to touch the fence and that they were preventing the mill from doing their business. He then was arguing with the Officer Woods and talking junk to our kids and as he tried to provoke prolifers. At one point he told the policeman he should "go to church with us" and he called my granddaughter a "churchgirl" in a derogatory manner. It is obvious that the abortion providers hate the Jesus in us. Daryl was getting rowdy with Officer Woods and would not comply so other police help was called in. He was arrested and taken away to jail. This is the same guard that spit in my face and hair. Stan Scott and Bob D. also said this man stole prolife signs from them in the past.

And he often displays graphic but accurate photos of aborted children. That's it! Mr. Scott is a paradigm of free speech and accuracy in reporting. And Mr. Scott is about as dangerous to this community as six inch surf on the beach at Seaside Park. When one considers that this country has legalized abortion through the entire nine months of pregnancy and that 40 million American kids have been destroyed since that infamous Supreme Court decision, Stan's "crimes" seem pretty small...

Another Government Attempt to Silence the Gospel of Christ
December 9, 2002
Marilyn Carroll, a faithful Christian servant whose loving and peaceful ministry at the "Summit Women's Center" in Bridgeport, CT has helped over 1,000 women find a choice both they and their babies could live with alerted us to this news article. Every day the mill is open, this small ministry lives out the Gospel of Christ in word and deed. Through the Body of Christ, they help find homes, jobs, provisions for children for these women who mistakenly thought they had no alternative but to kill their unborn baby by abortion without any idea of the terrible consequences. The government working "hand in glove" with the abortion industry wants to keep women ignorant of truthful information, ignorant of Jesus Christ, childless and suffering physical & emotional lifelong traumas as long as they will keep forking over cash to the abortion industry to have their babies murdered. The only impediment to this evil partnership is the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ becoming biography in the streets through gentle Christians such as these. The timing screams out censhorship of free speech, the Gospel in particular.

Bridgeport trash collectors found a dead newborn baby girl in the rear of the city garbage truck, yesterday, Sept. 26th. Blood was running from her small body as the scoop began to move. Why are the people of Bridgeport so upset and shocked? This is precisely what happens legally every killing day at the Summit Abortuary on 3787 Main Street, Bridgeport.

Abortion Business Crumbling
One of the moms with a saved baby visited us on-site August 20The national yearly count for abortions has dropped drastically from 1, 500,000 to 1, 000,000 in the past 20 years (C. D. C.) Pro-life brothers and sisters are making a difference. Does prolife activism work? Yes, New statistics released show 500,000 children are being saved each year. We can see the count is getting lower right here in Bridgeport, too. (Click on picture for larger view - Or better yet, read the reports!)

Print Shop Next To Abortuary Closes Down
June 4, 2002
One of the local businesses,that was not too happy about the abortion mill being right next door to them, has moved out. I wonder if Main Street will turn into another Middle Street. All the businesses next door to the mill there, ended up moving out, too. It became a lifeless, desolate, dark area of death. It's all about reaping what you sow.

Christians Keep Speaking Out in Bridgeport, CT

May 23, 2002
Three letters To The Editor of the CT Post regarding the abomination of the City helping relocate the Summit abortion mill downtown on Main Street - sent on May 16, 17 and 20. Will the light of day now shine on Main Street and expose this for all to see? And from this small light will a crowd of witnesses arise and join with one voice to finally say, no more? Or will this curse on our nation, our state and this city continue unchecked and unnoticed? Will people of strong heart and moral purpose stand to resist? Or will this clinic just become another neighborhood business like a donut shop or toy store dispensing its wares, making a profit and paying its taxes to the cold blind eye of government?

Kristie & friend with signs on Main Street pleading to moms and the city of Bridgeport, CT Abortion Business Dead on Opening Day in Bridgeport
May 14, 2002

Over 75 prolifers came out yesterday, including 12 pastors, either to 3787 Main Street or the public hearing last night at Bridgeport Council Chambers. We were blessed to have our compassionate friend, Yale Professor Chu, with us for a short time. A prayer vigil and press conference was held in the morning. Prayers were lifted up to our Lord Jesus Christ by men of God and one very special prayer came from my nine year old granddaughter. Even a little child can see how evil abortion is.

"The abortion industry is moving to downtown north Main Street. No more back alley. The relocation is where many businesses and families reside. The travesty is the failure of the City to deal with this until after the fact. The abortion center plans to be open at the new location the same day the City Council President, John Fabrizi, set up a public hearing to appeal the move. The City paid $600,000 for the old building and up to $300,000 on relocation costs to the new controversial site. Christians and local clergy will be coming out for a prayer vigil, Tuesday morning 7 AM at 3787 Main Street.
"This is a critical hour in our city's history. It is reflective of the shadow of terrorism that looms over our nation..." - The Rev. Michael R. Hawkins, Pastor, Greater Bridgeport Christian Fellowship.

April 30, 2002

Over 30 prolifers stopped by the abortion mill this morning to say a prayer and stand in the gap for the precious little ones that were sentenced to die. Three clergy were present (Fr. Smith, Pstr. Larry and Pstr. Mike). I thank God for a few good men, we are praying and waiting for more to come...

"Connecticut Abortion Clinic Under Investigation"
April 26, 2002

In a groundbreaking move, two Bridgeport doctors were arrested for failing to report the molestation to the police after they had examined the girl and administered the pregnancy test. They were charged with failure to report abuse or neglect of a minor to police. The physicians referred the now 6 month pregnant girl to the abortion clinic, who also failed to report the incident.

Eight out of Fifteen Moms Leave Killing Center
April 12, 2002

Praise be to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that he moved in a mighty way today at Connecticut's "busiest" killing center. Thirty prolifers came out to pray including two clegy (Pastor. Dave & Fr. Smith). I thank God for the three new people we had this week from the rally (America, Krista, and Shari). Twenty-one deathscorts worked feverishly trying to combat our efforts. It was so bad I had to hold back my tears to see how evil and heartless people can be about babies lives. From what I saw today...

One Baby Saved, One Turn-away, Eleven Left to Die
April 16, 2002

About 35 prolifers came out to the streets to pray on this beautiful sunny and warm spring day (up to 90 degrees). Happy Birthday to Rev. Benham on his 54th birthday! This is the day the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad. This is an awesome day for us who are alive, but we still mourn for those that died a completely unnecessary death today.

Connecticut Post - Protests rise on abortion clinic's move
April 6, 2002

For nearly four hours Saturday some 200 anti-abortion advocates protested, preached and prayed in their effort to drive an abortion clinic off of Main Street and out of the city."This is just the beginning," said the Rev. William Marshall, whose Bridgeport Christian Life Center hosted the rally. "We're going to get more of the black churches involved. We are going to be heard."The protests may increase to at least three times a week at both Summit's current site on Middle Street and its future site at 3787 Main St., according to Carmen E. F. Vazquez and Marilyn Carroll, leaders of the Calvary Evangelical Pro-Life Movement.

The battle is raging in Bridgeport CT. once again! It seems that the gates of Hell are melting like wax at the sight of the LORD!

Revolution Breaks Out in Bridgeport, Connecticut
April 6, 2002
As we have read from reports in Bridgeport, the Summit abortuary is planning to move to a new location with the saints of God in hot pursuit! On April 4, 2002, the saints had lost two approved sites for the rally they were planning that would awaken the people of the city. The chief of police had approved the permits for the rally, but while he was on vacation, Bridgeport's mayor took the permits hostage.

AFA Supporting Bridgeport Ministry Against Unjust Temporary Restraining Order
May 30, 2001
The denied TRO is merely act one in what promises to be complex and contentious federal litigation between Connecticut's pro-life and pro-abortion forces. Late yesterday afternoon, the American Family Association Center for Law & Policy (‘Center') filed suit in federal district court in Bridgeport, Connecticut, against Summit Women's Center, an abortion clinic, the City of Bridgeport, and several Bridgeport police officers. The lawsuit alleges that these and other unnamed defendants conspired to violate the constitutional rights of pro-life advocates who counsel abortion seekers at or near the clinic.

Police Attempt to Move Gospel off the Streets
May 24, 2001
The Bridgeport Police Department started to enforce an injunction on May 18, 2001 on all prolifers. This is ludicrous; everyone knows the injunction was made only for Stan Scott. His particular injunction was issued to keep Mr. Scott twenty-eight feet from the front door of the death camp plus a five foot buffer zone around the clients.
