Life After the Comma
God is still speaking because He has changed His mind…or so says Eden Theological Seminary

"Eewww..it looks like forceps and a baby's head" Operation Save America director Reverend Flip Benham and the remnant delivered God's mail at Windows on Washington, as Eden Theological Seminary held their $125.00 a plate fundraiser in the ambience of a renovated, historic building, to raise money to train pastors and pastorettes to promote abortion and homosexuality. On most Saturdays outside a notorious abortion mill in Granite City, Illinois you will find these lost seminarian students holding their purple signs “pro-faith, pro-family, pro-choice,” or “I'm pro-choice and I pray.” They are leading these young people straight to hell as they escort and counsel pregnant girls inside Hope Clinic.

Another Botched Abortion at Hope(less)?
Women continue to play Russian Roulette with a “poor choice”... the only thing this abortion mill can offer them. Safe and legal? That's a lie as babies and women continue to die. Where's the outcry?

Abortion clinic worker watching as they load patient We had already left for the drive home from the abortion mill in Granite City, Illinois. It was Saturday, October 29, 11:38 a.m. We received a frantic call from the few proclaimers left standing. “Two ambulances have pulled up to the front door of Hope Clinic,” they said. “Pray and run to Walgreen's and get a camera,” we instructed them. “We're turning the ultrasound van around and we're heading back.”... Almost fifteen minutes had transpired when we pulled up to the crime scene. By then, the ambulance with the patient from the abortion clinic had already backed into the hospital emergency room entrance and wheeled the stretcher inside. After a two hour wait, the condition of the patient was still unknown. Yogendra Shah was the hired-killer this day.

Tell your teens the truth about abortion The Godly heritage that our once great country was founded on, and former generations raised upon, has now turned to a garden of weeds. Our youth are starving and dwindling among the barren land.

This year at the "Promise Keepers' Awakening" PKs were more supportive of the signs. They told us we needed more, and it's good, and that people need to see the truth. A man from Chicago said, "Only after I saw those signs did it change my view on abortion. It's wrong!" We conducted ourselves as a loving, informational, and encouraging presence. Only the PK management and volunteers hated the truth. They wanted to put on a nice event.

Flip preaching God's Word & love            What happened this weekend was that love came to the Gay Pridefest in St. Louis. When perfect love comes to town it confronts evil and sin. Why? Because God hates sin and what it does to people. When this fact is exposed, initially it feels like condemnation, but that very condemnation is meant to bring you to the place where you ask, “Is there any hope for me?”

The Abortion Breast Cancer Cover-up
Susan B Komen, "Race for the Cure"

By Angela Michael
Posted June 22, 2005

The Susan B. Komen, “Race for the Cure,” provides one of the most deplorable cover-ups for the abortion industry known to man.  Over 40,000 women die every year as a result of a virulent form of breast cancer.  Planned Parenthood, NOW, NAF, NCAP, and all these paragons of women's rights, are running the “Race for the Cure” knowing full well that one of the major causes of breast cancer in women, is ABORTION!  What utter deception!  Even the American Cancer Society and the Center for Disease Control are a part of the cover-up.  They know, but they are keeping quiet.  That is why it is so very important for us to bring the truth into the streets of our cities in the Name of Jesus.  If the Susan Komen, “Race for the Cure,” is coming to your city, give us a call and we will help you storm the gates of hell with the life-giving Gospel of Christ.  We will also get you Dr. Joel Brind's brochure. – Flip

We were contacted on May 17th, 2005 by Betty, a retired school-teacher from Alton, Illinois who recently lost her mother. On her way to a doctor's appointment and still grieving for her loss she made her way to the Hope(less) abortion mill where thirty-five to fifty babies are murdered daily. She came to these gates for the first time on Friday, April 15th, 2005 to pray and intercede for the children. It was around 2:15 p.m. Earlier this day, approximately thirty-four children were murdered including four from Indiana, two from Tennessee, Massachusetts, Missouri and Illinois. Praise the Lord we had two babies saved this day, including a mother named "Dawn" who after an onsite ultrasound decided to place her 27-week old baby girl up for adoption

So Much for Choice!
Here is a typical attempt of our government trying to legislate the Gospel of Jesus Christ off the streets! In this case, it has come in the form of removing a sonogram machine that reveals the truth of life in the womb. They don't want mothers to have a choice and choose life, they simply want there to be death, period! Rest assured, there are those in the area ready to face arrest if need be. We must be those who will wield the "Sword of the Spirit" as we lay down our lives for others. Let us not be those who are always looking for a better way. Let us be those who will do things God's way! ~Flip

Abortion mills across this country are covering up cases where underage young ladies are being brought to abortion mills without their parent's knowledge. Many are being taken right from the schoolhouse to the abortion mill and then brought right back to school. Parents are left totally out of the picture. Here is another hideous example of what happened to a mother today, who found out that her fourteen-year-old daughter was taken from school and brought to the Granite City abortion mill. The mother of the fourteen year old was arrested and placed in handcuffs when she went to rescue her daughter and grandchild. Read and weep.

Proclaimers began arriving to stand along the parade route with prolife signs and Scripture representing the children who wouldn't be attending this holiday event because this city supports the local American Family Extermination camp otherwise known as Hope(less) abortion mill. Momentum had built up since the Labor Day "Drugs, Democrats & Dismemberment welcome to Granite City" parade, where Baby Malachi wowed the democratic politicians, city officials, and union members.

We were warned that they were waiting for us. Psalm 37:32 "The wicked lie in wait for the righteous, seeking their very lives."

Where’s the tolerance? We entered the enemies’ camp in peace but were met with hostile spiritual warfare.

I questioned, "What are you talking about?" He explained that he and another man had just walked an abortion-minded mother with her male friend over to Dr. Mark’s obstetrical practice office, just down from this mill, and that a craving for a baloney sandwich, saved this baby’s life, at least for the moment. Was it a craving? Could it have been the voice of God?

Moments later, Sara, Christina's daughter ran to the front of the Hope(less) mill screaming, "Angela they need you behind the abortion mill." We ran to the back of this mill and saw Christina holding a crumpled up woman who was unconscious and her companion standing by with a look of extreme anxiety on his face. Angela knelt down and felt for a pulse and noticed the ashen color of her face. She was un-responsive.

On December 3, 2003 a young woman from Missouri seeking a second trimester abortion was rushed across the street to Gateway Regional Hospital that sits 200 feet across from the Midwest’s largest abortion mill, Hope Clinic for Women, in Granite City, IL. They perform between 10,000 and 13,000 abortions a year with price ranges from $400.00 to $2400.00 dollars. They specialize in late-term abortions and no parental consent is needed for underage pregnant girls. The woman was reportedly screaming to hospital employees to "keep Shah and Palmer away from me!" Yogendra Shah and felon Alan Palmer are the two remaining abortionists at this killing facility and both are currently on staff at this hospital. According to the St. Louis Globe Democrat, Palmer was convicted in Nov 1979, fined $5,000, and spent six months incarcerated in prison.

King Jesus "Shuts Down" High Place!

April 17, 2002
On Saturday, our Lord Jesus answered our prayers. For the first time in its 28-year history, the Hope Clinic for Women in Granite City, Illinois, did not open. Not one baby was killed! They did not open on the busiest killing day of the week when they normally shed the blood of approximately 50 babies each week. This "Mecca of the Midwest" abortuary knew the gentle Christians were coming to stand for our Lord in the streets of Granite City. They knew that the National Director of Operation Save America was coming to lead Gideon's Army into spiritual battle at their diabolical high place! God performed a miracle and caused the wicked to close down in fear.

Constitution Suspended for the Michaels and All Pro-lifers in Highland: Letter to the EditorDaniel & Angela Michael in front of Hope(less) abortion mill in Granite City
"Abortion Comes to Highland"
February 5, 2002
[See the Preface as a Madison County judge on Monday kept in force the unheard of 1500 foot restraining order...in Highland against all pro-lifers.]
Let’s face it! Abortion is mean and it’s ugly. The most recent controversy is the exposure of the Teaberries party house where an abortion clinic employee has parties for little girls on the weekends and during the weekdays she works at the Hope(less) abortion mill in Granite City, IL, where we stand at the gates of Hell four to five times a week proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ who is Lord and whose laws shall reign. She is killing little baby girls and boys. She is assisting in the slaughter of these babies during the weekdays, and entertaining here on the weekend here in Highland.

Abortion foes picket teahouse despite order
Posted January 29, 2002
News article by Brian Brueggesmann
[OSA Note: Those businesses and individuals that support child killers by providing services to them share in the bloodguilt for these innocent children murdered by abortion. It truly takes a village to kill a child. Those who wish to remain a part of this deadly village ought to put up a sign or include language in their ads, that they "are proud to serve those that butcher little baby boys and girls and take their blood money." Whether they are this honest or not, they ought not be surprised when Christians, in obedience to Scripture "Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them." (Ephesians 5:11), publicly inform the community of such complicity in the abomination of killing God's precious little image bearers. The principle is the same as a picket of a pornography store, manufacturing plant or any other business with objectionable practices -- Only in this case, it is a matter of life and death. Citizens have the right to picket, protest and inform. Christians have both the right and the duty to do so. The Church will obey her Lord and expose this village.]

Lawsuits Agains Yogendra Shah
September 1, 2001
Webmaster's Note: Listings of Shah's offences are posted.

Abortionist Yogendra Shah and the Hope Abortion Clinic are trying move the national focus from them to Daniel and Angela Michael. The facts are that many lawsuits have filed against them in recent years! "The wicked in his pride persecutes the poor, Let them be caught in the plots which they have devised." These lawsuits are for negligence, and malpractice among other things. The truth is being revealed to the world about the degree of "butchery" that has been taking place for over 28 years in the abortuary in Granite City, and for the past 20 years at the hands of Yogendra Shah.

Woman Brought to Catholic Hospital After Botched Abortion
June 6, 2001
A woman was brought from the "Hope" abortion mill to St. Elizabeth's Catholic hospital on June 1 after a botched abortion. Abortionist Yogendra Shah had used 10 laminaria in the dilation procedure (the normal is only 4 or 5 laminaria). This didn't’t work for him, so he proceeded to use mechanical tools to stretch open the cervix. Shah tried to rush the delivery of the 23 weeks gestation baby, but after he had delivered the baby’s head, he encountered the life-threatening problems. They took the mother to the operating room in the abortion clinic, and tried to patch her up, twice, but it didn't’t work. They then took her to the hospital's main lobby, in full view of about 20 or so visitors coming and going. She was already "shocky," and had tachycardia, and was losing blood rapidly.

Local Christian Radio Hosts Jump into the Battle
May 15, 2001
In Granite City, Daniel and Angela Michael of Small Victories are experiencing some huge victories at their local abortion mill, "Hope[less] Women's Center." God has raised up the Tim & Al show on KJSL radio in St. Louis to come alongside and help them raise up an army. Tim and Al have done more in the past seven months to expose the wickedness of the abortion industry in St. Louis and Granite City, than has been done in the past 28 years. On April 18, 2001 they held an "ultrathon" during their morning show to raise money for Daniel and Angela to buy a sonogram. This device will show abortion bound mothers what their little baby girls and boys look like. They needed $5,000 and raised over $25,000. God is so good!

Granite City - Flip Benham's Visit
April 16-17, 2001
Flip preached that we must stand for Jesus and continue to go to the gates of Hell and fight for the unborn. Four babies left the clinic alive. Praise the Lord! We are not called to change women's mind, but to give them His message of love and real hope. We are able to inform them of their baby's life, and to tell them what abortion does physically, mentally, and spiritually to them and their child. We cannot be responsible for their response, but we can tell them they have other options. If we hear a dying child screaming for help, we don't wait for help.

"Christ" Hospital Killed Another Child
April 10, 2001
A little while after the abortive delivery took place in one room, I needed help with my own delivery a few doors down the hall. I asked for someone to get the nursing assistants for me, but the nurse taking care of the aborting mother and aborted baby told me that they were not available right now. When I asked where they were, she said, "They're in the Comfort Room wrapping my baby to take to the morgue."

Granite City - Shah's Cheap Little Deal
December 21, 2000
Hence, they go to St. Elizabeth's. Of course, the fact that these girls are in such bad physical shape that they may make not it to the other hospital also plays into it. Keep in mind that this "doctor" does not take his real OB/GYN patients to St. Elizabeth's, but rather to the other area hospital so he can make more money. This is the same guy St. Elizabeth's has employed as OB/GYN Chief of Staff for over 8 years!
