Who is Johnny Brockhoeft?
Johnny Brockhoeft made the
"Who's Who" list under the pro-abortion web page "Information
About Abortion Clinic Violence". The web address is http://www.cais.com/agm/main/violence.htm.
It was maintained by Adam Guasch-Melendez (firstname.lastname@example.org) as of June 1997 AD.
Who's Who: John Brockhoeft : John Brockhoeft served several years in prison for two arsons and one attempted bombing of a clinic. While in prison, he distributed The Brockhoeft Report, a newsletter edited by Shelley Shannon. Brockhoeft also has close ties to Joseph Scheidler, Paul Hill, and John Burt, among others. He is a signer of the Defensive Action statement. In 1995, Brockhoeft was released from prison, with extreme restrictions placed on his actions.
Actually the first three issues of The Brockhoeft Report
were edited and published by Shelley Shannon, who later was convicted and
is serving time for shooting both arms of late term Wichita abortionist
George Tiller in the arms.
The subsequent 13 chapters were published in the Prayer & Action News between November, 1993 and January, 1995. Brockhoeft's publishing venture was brought to a screeching halt by the truly extreme restrictions placed on his actions which took effect upon his "release" in February of 1995.
He was not allowed to communicate with prolifers. Period. The original orders were so extreme that Brockhoeft was forbidden communication with any prolife attorney!
The orders were so adamant and comprehensive that many shared Brockhoeft's concerns that he would not be allowed:
(1) to attend a church containing prolifers;
(2) to receive medical attention from a prolife doctor;
(3) to marry his prolife fiancee.
These restrictions were to be in effect for three years. The parole board responded to our concerns with the assurance that our scenarios were exaggerated.
Since February 1995, when the veil of secrecy came crashing down, we have been unable to confirm any details about Brockhoeft's treatment. The only thing we know for certain is that he was definitely cut off from Michael Hirsch, his high profile, CBN graduate, prolife attorney who has also been in the news for defending Paul Hill, in Pensacola, Regina Dinwiddie, in Kansas City, and others. However, he was ordered to stay in communication with a government-appointed psychiatrist. With restrictions on communication like that, a prisoner could even be assassinated and his friends and supporters would not know until the restrictions are lifted. If the government obeys its own orders, and if Brockhoeft is still alive and well, he will once again be allowed to communicate with prolifers in February of 1998.

Do Your Eze. 3:20 Duty Letter from the Editor
This is our first official "Pro-Life Controversies" issue, with John Brockhoeft's book serialized in it. This first issue is a "catch up" issue. Normally our /C/ issue will contain only one Brockhoeft chapter. Shelley Shannon published and mailed his first three chapters, most of which were reprinted in past P&A issues. But publication was interrupted when Shelley was accused of shooting late-term abortionist George Tiller ("Tiller the Killer") of Wichita.
Publication of The Brockhoeft Report (TBR) will resume through the /C/ issue of the P&A, to Shannon's readers in addition to P&A readers. Chapters 1-3 are a fresh start. This issue premiers chapter 4.
I think most people will find Brockhoeft's writing style easy and even fun to read, his reasoning not easy to refute, but his conclusions so politically incorrect that even many pro-lifers will find it exasperating, or worse, depending on their commitment to a pacifist view.
My concern as editor is that such readers will seldom share their objections in print so we may learn from them. So I want to extend to every reader the same invitation I extended to a popular pastor:
"Dear pastor READER,
"I realize few, even among Rescuers, condone killing abortionists.
"John Brockhoeft burned abortuaries and defends such violence from the Bible, from law, and from history.
"I find myself unable to refute his logic, and when I tune into televangelists I find mere statements of position, with nothing to persuade those considering babykillercide beyond the promise of human disapproval.
"Such was your statement in your "Pastor's Corner", although I realize you may have given more detail in your sermons.
"Of course you don't need much detail or documentation when you are 'preaching to the choir' -- unless, as appears to be the case with this issue, a growing number of Christians are considering 'quitting the choir'.
"For their sakes, I challenge you to write persuasive arguments addressing the Biblical, historical, and legal issues of babykillercide. Please allow me to publish them -- for Brockhoeft's sake, too, since he will read them in the P&A. Or you can write to him directly -- his address is [given at the end of his articles]. ...
