Mother Arrested Trying to Save Daughter and Grandchild

Mother Arrested Trying to Save Daughter and Grandchild

Our kids can't take an aspirin at school without written parental permission and yet a young girl can be taken in complete secrecy to an abortion mill to have her baby killed.  Pray for Angela that her words are clear and concise as she tells this story to the nation on "The O'Reilly Factor."  Pray that God will use the “jawbone of a donkey,” Bill O'Reilly, He's done it before and can do it now.   ~Flip~    4/11/2005

It Happened Again…

Mother in squad car

As the Small Victories ultrasound van rolled up to the crime scene, we saw a commotion and three Granite City squad cars. The police had just placed the mother of an under-age 14-year old girl in the backseat. They were arresting her for trespass. She had just finished her school bus route when she was notified her daughter was not at school, but at the Hope Clinic. In a panic she woke her sleeping husband up, he works third shift, and they sped off to the abortion mill in Granite City, Illinois.

It was 8:40 a.m. Proclaimer Nolan asked if he could help them and the mother quickly relayed the horrible story that she was there to find her daughter. Both parents went to the guard shack directly in front of this mill entrance. Yale security guard Bob let them enter after a short conversation. A few minutes later the front door opened and someone was yelling “Amanda! Amanda, don't do it!” That's when police arrived.

Employees began isolating this mother from abortion bound clients inside and they ushered the daughter to another part of this abortuary where she couldn't have contact or hear her mother's cries. During this time, the workers kept telling this mother who took a seat by the front desk, that “she can't prove her daughter was here.” The mother then informed them she saw her daughter's sign in time and it was highlighted at the check in point. Employee Klara then told her, “It's your daughter's rights, it's her body.” Med tech Gwynne, “You have no rights.” The fact that “my rights, my body, my choice” has become the mantra of the day is not our problem. It is a sign and judgment from God. “In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as he saw fit.” Judges 21:25

They shut the ultrasound room and the door to the room full of mothers waiting to kill. The police placed the mother's hands behind her back, took the mother in custody and put her in the squad car. The mother was crying out, “Please, please, help me. My daughter is in there.” I assured her we would do whatever we could to help her.

Angela on phone calling for help surrounded by family

I asked the officers Darrell May and Joe Mangiaracino, “Could I please talk with them?” They complied and I asked, “Why were they arresting this mother?” and that they had the wrong person. “Why aren't you arresting the man who got her daughter pregnant?” I asked if they, “Were going to find out who the father of the baby was and his age? Are you going to enforce the statutory rape law in Illinois? Where are her mother's rights? She pays her bills and is responsible for her welfare.” The police said the abortion clinic wouldn't give them that information concerning the paternity of the baby. “Why not?” I asked. The officer said, “That's not the problem.” “Huh?” “The problem is the mother wants to stop the abortion,” according to this officer.

When the mother went into the clinic she requested to see her daughter. The abortion clinic took the pregnant girl to another room and concealed her. They refused to help this distraught mother. They then called police. She sat in a chair and refused to leave without seeing or talking to her daughter. The local police could have given this mother an escort to visit her daughter, but they failed - miserably. Every police officer present at the scene has betrayed God, the family, and their badge. These men took oaths to serve America 's citizens and protect against injustice, yet have failed miserably. We seem to be having a love affair with death. Isaiah 5:20 “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil…”

While the mother sat in the police car, the father of the baby and his mother who posed as the pregnant underage girl's grandmother and phoned the high school to cover her absence from school, were sneaked out the back door of the abortion mill by Hope employees, and the pregnant girl was told her mother had left the scene. Another lie. The Granite City police neither served nor protected this mother, her young daughter, or the unborn child from the terrorists within Hope(less) abortion mill. The Hope abortion Clinic shattered the covenant between this mother and daughter. They advertise “Where there's choice, there's hope.” The only choice Hope Clinic gives is Tuesday or Thursday. They want to parent our children. A more malevolent parent would not be found. God has given parents the responsibility of raising His children.

After talking with a family friend, the father of the baby and his mother, who called the school and posed as her grandmother to cover-up her absence from school, brought her to the clinic to get rid of this baby. He had plans to go to college and this baby would interfere.

Father talking to police, begging for daughter

The abortion clinic had decided to take upon itself, the role of parent. They now are kidnapping underage children keeping them at bay while parents, who have been ordained by God to nurture, protect and care for them are denied their God-given rights to do so!

The abortionist Yogendra Shah arrived at 9:35 a.m. with Hope Clinic director Sally Burgess in tow. It was about this time the police released the mother from custody so she could press charges in her local town against this father of the baby and his mother who pressured and brought her fourteen-year-old daughter to Hope Clinic to terminate the pregnancy.

14-yr old girl hugging family member, Angela prays

We gathered in prayer and kept a vigil outside this mill. Exactly one hour later at 10:35 a.m. this young girl, looking rather disheveled, walked out, into relatives' arms, those who stayed behind. She told us that employees kept her in a quiet room till the procedure. When she asked employees to give her mother a message, they came back in the room and told her that her mother had left. Another lie. All the time her mother was sitting in a squad car pleading for her welfare and release. Employees assured this girl on her departure, “No-one will ever know you were here, we'll bury your records.” Another lie.

This is not the first time a parent's rights were trumped. It was well documented on February 21st, 2002 that a mother from Mascoutah, Illinois was held outside while her underage daughter underwent an abortion without her mother's knowledge or consent and tormented by the Hope abortion Clinic staff.

Forget about whether you agree or disagree with abortion. How is it that a parent has no say in a major medical decision involving her child? A 14-year-old girl can't get emergency room treatment for a broken bone or stitches until a parent authorizes it. She can't get a tattoo or her ears pierced without her parents' permission. She can't even get an aspirin at school unless her parents say it's OK.

Yet the law allows her to get an abortion, an invasive surgical procedure, which can have life-threatening complications, without her parents' consent or even knowledge.

Hope abortion Clinic will say that they were only following the law, but the law needs to change.

Illinois law-makers need to restore the rights of parents and put their rights back in the parents' hands and not the blood-money profiteers.

The law needs to change.

Jeremiah 31:15 “A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted because her children are no more.”
