Sing a Little Louder

Are we truly “pleading the case of the fatherless to win it”?
Jeremiah 5:28

After prominent pro-life leader Penny Lea had spoken one night, an elderly man approached her and gave her his testimony. This is his story:

“I lived in Germany during the Nazi holocaust. I considered myself a Christian.

I attended church since I was a small boy. We had heard the stories of what was happening to the Jews. But like most people today in this country, we tried to distance ourselves from the reality of what was really taking place. What could anyone do to stop it?

A railroad track ran behind our small church, and each Sunday morning we would hear the whistle from a distance and then the clacking of the wheels moving over the track. We became disturbed when on Sunday we noticed cries coming from the train as it passed by. We grimly realized that the train was carrying Jews. They were like cattle in those cars!

Week after week that train whistle would blow. We would dread to hear the sound of those old wheels because we knew that the Jews would begin to cry out to us as they passed our church. It was so terribly disturbing! We could do nothing to help these poor miserable people, yet their screams tormented us. We knew exactly at what time that whistle would blow, and we decided the only way to keep from being so disturbed by the cries was to start singing our hymns. By the time that train came rumbling past the church yard, we were singing at the top of our voices. If some of the screams reached our ears, we’d just sing a little louder until we could hear them no more. Years have passed and no one talks about it much anymore, but I still hear that train whistle in my sleep. I can still hear them crying out for help. God forgive all of us who called ourselves Christians, yet did nothing to intervene.

Now, so many years later, I see it happening all over again in America. God forgive you as Americans, for you have blocked out the screams of millions of your own children. The holocaust is here. The response is the same as it was in my country— SILENCE!”

Baby Malachi

This little baby boy was found frozen in a jar with three other children at an abortion mill in Dallas, Texas, in February 1993. We were stunned when we found him. There were jars upon jars of frozen children in that abortion mill. Rhonda Mackey, our executive secretary at the time, brought this one jar out and asked me what we should do with it. I had no idea, but I instinctively knew we could not leave it there. We brought the jar to Dr. McCarty, a wonderful Ob-Gyn in Dallas, who put the pieces of this baby and the others back together.

The entire process was put on video as Dr. McCarty and all who were present wept at the reconstruction of these precious children. The life that was once there was now gone forever.

It became apparent to all of us that God had given us these children, one in particular, to show to the entire world the horror of abortion. One picture can speak louder than a truckload of words.

We prayed, and asked God to allow this little boy to speak to our nation. We remembered the scripture in Hebrews 11:4: “…he still speaks, even though he is dead.” It was upon a very specific revelation from our Lord that we had the picture of one baby blown up to poster size. Rhonda asked me if she might have the privilege of naming this little baby boy. She prayed, and God gave her the name that this child would become known by all over the world— Malachi!

Malachi means, “My messenger.”

For years now we have been saying that abortion is preeminently a Gospel issue. It is a physical manifestation of the battle between two seeds—the “seed of the serpent ” versus the “seed of the woman ” Genesis 3:15.

Because this is true, there can be no compromise, no “reaching across the aisle,” no “middle ground” in the abortion battle. Neither side will tolerate the other. When one chooses sides here, he is really choosing between God and the devil—between life and death!

This battle has been raging through the pages of the Bible and the pages of history since the beginning of time. The “seed of the serpent ” is in absolute rebellion against Almighty God and His Law. The “seed of the woman” is in agreement with Almighty God and His Law. Every person on this earth must choose to be on one side or the other, there is no “in between.”

What one perceives the battle to be will determine how he fights it!

Education: If you perceive abortion to be primarily an educational issue, then you will do all that you can to educate people, helping them realize that life begins at conception. The problem is, that many in our nation already know this fact, but they believe a mother’s right to choose trumps a child’s right to live. It isn’t about education!

Politics: If you perceive abortion to be primarily a political issue, then you will spend your time and money attempting to elect Republicans to make abortion illegal once again. However, politics is the art of compromise. To be successful, you must compromise God’s Word to get His work done. This is never a good idea! It isn’t about politics!

Economics: If you perceive abortion to be primarily an economic issue, then you will do all that you can to help those seeking an abortion to find financial help to see their baby to term and beyond. The problem is that most mothers seeking abortion just want to get it over with and get on with their lives. It isn’t about finances!

Compassion: If you perceive abortion to be a compassion issue, then you will do all that you can to set up crisis pregnancy centers so that those seeking abortion instead choose life. The problem is that over 80% of the patients seen in crisis pregnancy centers are not abortion-minded. Those seeking abortions don’t go to crisis pregnancy centers. It isn’t about compassion!

Gospel: If, however, you perceive abortion to be a Gospel issue, then you will call the Church of Jesus Christ into the streets to stand in the gap on behalf of pre-born children. If it is a battle between the “seed of the serpent” and the “seed of the woman,” only the Church of Jesus Christ can crush the head of the serpent. The gates of hell cannot prevail against her! Abortion is preeminently a Gospel issue!

If this is true, we Christians must confess that we have been wrong for the past 30 years in our fight against abortion. We must confess that, though well intentioned, we have failed to love our neighbor as ourself. We must confess that we have lost sight of the spiritual nature of this battle and how it must be won.

We have fought for the lives of children on every venue (educational, political, economic, compassionate, etc.) except this one. We have educated America about the sanctity of life. We have plunged into the political realm, electing Republican and conservative mercenaries to fight our battles for us. We have given financially, over and over again, to help mothers in crisis pregnancies. We have established crisis pregnancy centers. Unfortunately, we have not struck at the root of the problem.

It is only as the praying, proclaiming, praising Church of Jesus Christ allows her theology to become biography at local abortion mills in every city, that the battle may be won!

The “seed of the serpent ” is at war with “the seed of the woman.” This is the battle! Abortion is one of its most horrible physical manifestations. The devil is robbing, killing, and destroying God’s heritage (children, Ps. 127) while we sit by trying to educate, negotiate, buy off, or be compassionate with God’s sworn enemy. We have done everything but fight the devil and his lies with the Word of God.

The only entity ordained by God to crush the head of this serpent is the Church of Jesus Christ. It is time that we lived up to our high calling. Theology must become biography in the streets. The gates of hell cannot prevail. Abortion will come to an end in America when the Church of Jesus Christ makes up her mind it will come to an end—not one second sooner!





Hello, my name is Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas, the assistant director of Operation Save America. By now, you are probably aware of our new national campaign called the States of Refuge. This communication is our first attempt to make personal contact with you. Find enclosed a book, Won by Love by Norma McCorvey, the Jane Roe of Roe vs. Wade infamy, a powerful DVD calledAbortion Matrix, and several tracts. We pray you will take the time to read and watch these materials.

It is in the fear and humility of God; we contact you and submit these resources. We understand that the mere words contained in this communication may not suffice to truly convince you of our heartfelt concern for the condition of your soul before a Holy God. Regardless, it is still our sincere prayer that you will receive our attempt, inadequate as it may seem, in the spirit in which it is sent. Our genuine desire is for the Lord to take this meager communiqué, anoint it by His Spirit, and speak directly to your heart.

Mr. Thomas Tvedten, we have a solemn responsibility before the Lord God of Hosts to defend the innocent who are being dragged away to slaughter (Proverbs 24:11, 12). Most of us, if not all of us, have failed miserably in our obedience. This we humbly confess before God and you. At the same time, God has called us to the ministry of reconciliation, which is found in 2 Corinthians 5:18-20, “Now all things are of God, who reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.”

Mr. Tvedten, we realize that you may endure much to maintain your abortion mill. We can only speculate as to what your participation in child killing has wrought upon your life. Only you and God know for sure the anguish, the possible paranoia, and nightmares that have invaded your dreams at night. We do not know what lengths you have gone to quiet your conscience in order to continue to kill children made in the image of God. And though you may have prospered financially with the blood money you have accumulated, we can all be assured it has come with a price.

The word of God warns in Proverbs 28:17, “A man burdened with bloodshed will flee into a pit; Let no one help him.” One translation says that person will be a fugitive, a wanderer, till death, let no one support him. Through the years, you may have garnered the support from our government, the pro-abort community, and an unjust law that has unleashed Hell to devour our nameless sons and daughters in America. Though you probably view this support as a refuge, it is in truth, a violation of Scripture and a major betrayal against your own soul. We, on the other hand, do not only withhold our support from what you are tragically involved with, but we actually resist you. Though you may view us as your enemy, we are in fact those who love you enough to tell you the truth. Jesus said, “And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32).”

Mr. Tvedten, however you perceive this letter, our intention is to make God’s appeal known through us, “be reconciled to God.” Our prayer is you will heed the admonishment found in Isaiah 55:7, “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.”

We know firsthand, it takes courage and humility to admit being wicked. But that is the first step towards deliverance through Christ. We stand with you, praying that you will muster the courage, confess your sins against God, your crimes against the little ones, repent, and receive the gracious gift of God, the salvation of your soul. The good news is, no matter how far you’ve gone, no matter how deep the stain of your iniquity, there is still a God in heaven that will cleanse, heal, and forgive. Turn from child killing, stop the slaughter, and call upon God for mercy. He will hear you in Jesus’ Holy Name!


Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas

Dear Sir or Ma’am,

Pleased beyond measure at the news of your decision to stop giving grant money to Planned Parenthood. In the wake, I’m sure you all will get your ears full of the vitriole of those that oppose this decision. Let me be a voice of grace and thankfulness and may it sustain you all through these hard and evil days. Jesus is really the reason for writing you all and to speak briefly of the full and free pardon He offers for all evil associations, sin and weaknesses. He is the way, the truth and the life. “Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.” You have sided with truth today; you have done what is right today.

Stand firm and proud. Hold to this decision and let not the naysayers break down your resolve. You are indeed on the path to truly helping women.

Thank you!


Richard C. Hagen
