"If you remain indifferent in time of adversity, your strength will depart from you. Rescue those being dragged to death, and from those tottering to execution withdraw not. If you say, "I know not this man!" does not he who tests hearts perceive it? He who guards your life knows it, and he will repay each one according to his deeds." Proverbs 24: 10-12
Missionaries to the Pre-born took this proverb seriously in 1993 when they prevented Milton Tarver from leaving his home and going to his place of "business" where he would kill babies all day. Instead, rescuers blocked his car and physically put themselves between the abortionist and his victims. How many babies were saved that day? Who knows, but statistics show that about 25% of women prevented from aborting will never return.
What is Milton Tarver doing today - almost 20 years later? I don't know, but there is a Milwaukee Ob-Gyn named Milton G. Tarver who has a Milwaukee listing which does not list abortion as a service. Does he still kill children? Let's pray not.
As for the history of the abortion wars, a pro-lifer warrior has told the story from her perspective. Monica Migliorino Miller has written what's been described as the "best book ever written on abortion." It will take you back to the early days of the movement when babies bodies were retrieved from dumpsters to be given decent burials, when pro-lifers put their bodies between the abortionists and their victims and willingly went to jail as a result.
I read several chapters from the book and urge you to do the same. Would that we had many missionaries to the babies with the courage to continue doing this today when the little ones are still being massacred every day in the death centers of this country. Would that I had the courage now that my children are grown up and no longer dependent on me to return to my rescue days. A few have that courage, like Mary Wagner of Canada. May the Lord call others to imitate her example.
