Life Walkers Defend All Lives
The Life Walk participants represented many more who were unable to join in the two mile walk. The Christian responsibility to defend life from the moment of conception to natural death was highlighted with the opening prayer by Deacon Richard Bloomfield of Our Lady of the Scapular Catholic Parish in Wyandotte. The walk began at First Baptist Church of Lincoln Park
walking along Fort Street to the Crisis Pregnancy Center on Fort Street at Southfield. The Crisis Pregnancy Center offers life affirming counseling, education and material goods (clothing, diapers, formula, cribs, car seats and more) to help mothers, fathers and their children.
The annual peaceful fund raiser walk increases the awareness of the tragedy of abortion and took place Saturday morning, June 6.
After almost three months of lock down due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the outdoor walk offered an opportunity to see like-minded friends for the first time in many months. While other groups carry signs that Black Lives Matter, the Life Walk group signs declared that ALL human lives matter. It is significant that although Blacks compose 13% of the population, 50% of all abortions in Michigan kill unborn Black babies. (https://rtl.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/HopeForTomorrow_brochure.pdf) Abortion is an injustice for all innocent children in the womb and more so for Black babies.
Life Walk participants included the two dozen walkers, young and old, plus twice as many who supported the effort with their pledges. The walkers came from throughout the Downriver area. They carried signs declaring, “America for Life for All,” “Abortion Kills Children,” “Life: the First Inalienable Right,” and “Adoption: the Loving Option.” While walking the two mile route, Ed Kroll, president of Upper Downriver Right to Life noted that the friendly toots of the horns of passing cars and thumbs up responses were significantly more than in previous years.
Following the Life Walk was a potluck picnic. During the picnic, four passers by took the time to stop and talk and offered donations, increasing the successful fundraiser.
The event was sponsored by Upper Downriver Right to Life, serving Wyandotte, Southgate, Lincoln Park, Ecorse, River Rouge and Southwest Detroit. Participants included President Joe Connors and other members from Southern Downriver Right to Life. Both organizations are affiliates of Right to Life of Michigan (www.rtl.org).
It is the time of year where the Right to Life of Michigan Educational Fund typically holds its Youth Infographic Contest. This year instead of continuing with the infographic contest we have decided to change its format to a meme contest. Therefore, it is my pleasure to announce the first ever Michigan Right to Life Educational Fund Meme Match.
The Right to Life of Michigan Educational Fund hosts a Meme Match for high school and college-aged Michigan youth, ages 13 to 23. Contestants create and submit an original meme (based off on a pre-selected template), and contest finalists have their works shared on Right to Life of Michigan’s Facebook page where the public will like and share the memes to help determine the winners. The contest winner will receive a prize of $400 and the runner-up will receive $100.
CONTEST RULES AND REQUIREMENTS FOR SUBMISSION: Friday, July 10, 2020.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO COMPETE? Prolife young people from Michigan ages 13 to 23 as of July 10, 2020, are eligible for the competition.
HOW DO YOU WIN? Finalists will be selected by a Right to Life of Michigan panel and displayed on Facebook for a public vote. The submissions will be also be shared on our other social networking profiles for show. Voting on finalists will be “open” on Facebook from Wednesday, July 15, to 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 29. One third of the score will be based on the number of times each entry is shared from our Facebook page during that time and another third will be based on the number of likes each entry received from our Facebook page. The final third of the score will be voted on by the Right to Life of Michigan panel. The winner will be announced on Friday, July 31.
WHAT ARE THE PRIZES? The winner will receive $400 and the runner-up will receive $100.CONTEST RULES: 1. The meme must use one of three common meme templates to make a serious point about abortion: Gru’s Plan, Finding Neverland, Condescending Willy Wonka (examples are included above. 2. The important qualifications will be used to determine finalists:
The panel of judges is looking for submissions to make serious points using statistics, arguments, or current events; the purpose of this contest is not merely “dunking” on abortion supporters. Submissions will be checked against popular prolife meme creators to ensure no plagiarism is taking place. 3. Submissions for the contest are due by Friday, July 10, 2020. One submission per contestant. Memes must be in a JPEG or PNG file format and e-mailed to email@example.com. Contestants must include their name, address, phone number, and birthdate in the e-mail. The file size for submissions must not exceed 5 megabytes.
HOW CAN I MAKE A MEME? Many websites freely offer the ability to make memes using the three templates selected for this contest. The most common one we’ve used is imgflip.com/memegenerator.
WHY MEMES? Satire and irony have a long and glorious tradition, from Elijah, to Horace, to Jonathan Swift, and today, where memes on social media are the kings of modern satire. Many social ills and injustices have been the object of ridicule over the centuries, and there’s no reason the greatest injustice of our time—the top cause of death in the world—deserves to be spared.
If you have any questions I will be more than happy to answer them.
