MEDIA ADVISORY, July 19 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Midwest's largest, late-term abortion mill in Granite City, Illinois, where once over 13,104 babies were executed annually; now, less than 4,160 in the past year.
God is giving us the victory over this once bustling abortion mill. The murder capital of the Midwest is being reduced to almost nothing. When Small Victories first started its daily ministry over 18 years ago, this Mecca of the Midwest killed between 300-350 babies weekly.
At the height of this chop shop killing spree, we documented on one particular Saturday morning in 2002 approximately 82 clients; most inside and quite a few outside of this slaughterhouse waiting in their vehicles to be serviced. One Black American woman, who was 20 weeks pregnant, answered me when I inquired, "Why are you all sitting in your cars?" She told us there was an occupancy law and only 65 people could be inside this abortion clinic at a time; so almost twenty of the scheduled abortion clients were waiting on the parking lot in their cars. Unbelievable.
This past week only 40 abortions were performed. The abortion mill used to do that many in one day alone. Lawsuit after lawsuit is causing this mill to bleed. There is a constant employee turnover and they are existing on a skeleton crew at this posting. Hope Clinic for Women has been trying desperately to find a new abortionist for 7 years and can't do it! Praise the Lord! Also, we have had several personal conversions of former pro-choice employees. One in particular was recently the only licensed nurse. She blindsided me as we were praying, placed her arm around me, and whispered in my ear, "Thank you, Angela. This is my last day. Your ministry has been a powerful witness to me and others. I'm going off to do what real nurses should be doing." She hugged me, walked off the premises, and never returned.
This past week, 8 babies were saved from abortion and we performed 5 on-site ultrasounds on abortion-bound mothers. 3,650 babies have been saved since January 2000 and 36 of these babies have been put up for adoption. We currently have 2 saved babies up for adoption that are due in September and December. Matthew 7:16 "By their fruit you will know them."

So, what has caused this decrease in abortions? Not one law has been passed. Even though we have parental notification on the books here in Illinois, this law, like so many others, is not being enforced. It's hung up in court again. But God is faithful. He answers prayers. Prayers change things.
These are the frontlines of the battle. This is where the rubber meets the road. Jesus did not wait for the lost and needy to come into his office; He met them where they were at. He went into the streets. The battle against abortion will never be won in the halls of Congress. It can only be won in the streets where children are dying. We must fight it from the bottom up, not from the top down. As the victory line approaches, we must run "through" the tape. In seeing the end, as this baby killing mill draws its last breath, we must not let down our effort. Therefore, we run through the tape and onto the next, in keeping mind these are small victories that lead to huge ones.
