Please join Upper Downriver Right to Life on Sunday, May 19, 2019, as we “Stand Up For Life” in Lincoln Park’s Annual Memorial Day Parade. The parade begins at 1:00 P.M.
We still have not received our unit number or line up position, but we’ll probably line up again on White Street a couple blocks off of Fort Street. We will be getting that information, so watch our Facebook page this week, or another good alternative would be to ask anyone with a clipboard where the Upper Downriver parade unit is located.
There will be patriotic music coming from our unit. We plan to use our new portable sound system in all parades from here on out! Also, Rosalie’s brand new red vehicle will be used in our unit. AS A REMINDER, the parade runs from Southfield Road down Fort Street to the Band Shelter. Park either behind the auto part store located at the corner of Fort Street and Southfield or back behind that area a few streets away in the residential section. If needed, we will drive you back to your vehicle after the parade. The parade will be finished by 2:00 P.M. WE NEED YOU TO HELP PASS OUT CARDS AND CANDY.
PLAN TO HONOR GOD’S GIFT OF LIFE TO YOU AS WELL AS THE UNBORN. PUT IT ON OUR CALENDAR NOW!
It’s great that the local Republicans are sponsoring pro-life speakers. If you go, please let them know that you are from Upper Downriver Right to Life.
Southern Downriver Right to Life has invited us to join them at their 2019 Pastor’s Luncheon.
Fifty people prayed and sang on the sidewalk in front of Detroit’s Cass Avenue Planned Parenthood Center on the cool, clear Saturday evening of April 13 as part of a Prayer Vigil (#protestPP) at 142 locations nationwide.
Pedestrian and car traffic was brisk. One heckler was persistent, but valiantly ignored as everyone focused on praying the Rosary and the intercessory prayers led by Deacon Richard Bloomfield from Our Lady of the Scapular in Wyandotte.
As the shadows lengthened with the evening sun and after singing a few hymns, candles were distributed and lit, but most were extinguished by the wind, much like the babies who entered this place in their mothers’ wombs.
The Divine Mercy Chaplet was prayed, and people were asked to contact legislators and write letters to editors, or take other pro-life actions. The Deacon gave his blessing, a group photo was taken, and the group dispersed to their homes.
Participants came from Downriver and Detroit Parishes, Upper Downriver Right to Life, Central Wayne County Right to Life, Southern Downriver Right to Life, St. Joseph Oratory, Holy Redeemer Parish, Grosse Ile, and more.

Our People of Life Benefit Reception is coming up on Thursday, May 2. People of Life is RLM’s annual fundraising dinner in support of outreach to the Black community. This is the last year that we’ll be able to have the dinner at the Edison Boat Club in Detroit as it will be closing – which is a shame because the food there is always so great.
Since Upper Downriver RTL is near the Detroit area, you can be one of our powerful allies in outreach to the Black community and to the city of Detroit. I’m hoping you’ll help us get the word out and invite people to join us. Reservations are coming in slowly and we want to fill the room to hear Christina Bennett’s amazing story. You can view all information and register here:
I hope you will help us promote the dinner and that you can join us!

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders joins Interfaith Leaders at the Islamic Center of Southern California, Los Angeles. The question one wonders is if Senator Sanders is really naive enough to believe what he is saying while putting himself center stage of a radical terrorists organization like CAIR, who would just as soon see this infidel dead then actually speaking, but hey, one way to come through the back door via the Muslim Brotherhood is by keeping the attention on the front door trying to look like they are an open minded, peaceful organization.

CAIR’s members chanting “We are HAMAS. We are Jihad” in a video of Director, Hassan Shibly’s CAIR’s Florida group sponsoring a pro HAMAS rally in Miami.
The FBI has allegedly cut ties to CAIR after the Holy Land Foundation trial during which CAIR was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator along with its co-founder Omar Achmad as supporters of the terrorist group HAMAS.
CAIR was listed as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in November, 2014, saying the group is “linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, promotes extremism, and incites and finances terrorism.”
Ilhan Omar will deliver her address alongside CAIR’s Florida Director Hassan Shibly. According to a CAIR flier promoting the event, Shibly is a dedicated Islamist and bigoted gay basher. A fan of radical clerics, he has routinely refused to categorize U.S. designated terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist organizations, according to the Clarion Project.
Activists are concerned by Omar’s decision to raise money for various Islamist groups, some of which have been tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, and others labeled designated as terrorist-linked by some foreign governments. She has generated a lot of condemnation and attention with her anti-Semitic remarks since and before taking office causing a lot of problems inside of congress with those who have a problem with her outspoken hatred and discrimination, while others are apparently scared to speak up as being seen as traitors to their party.
According to Pamela Gellar, an expert on Islam and Muslim terrorists, “Omar is a 35-year-old mother of three and is America’s first elected Somali representative. She is a hijab-wearing Muslim who supports Shari Law, and who entered the United States as a Somali child refugee. Omar never officially held a certification in any government office, but that hasn’t stopped her from being one of the three most loudly heard freshmen in congress, spewing their radical views on the public.
One has to shutter at her attempt in adding her name to the statement, “Today is historic on many fronts. It’s the first time we have voted on a resolution condemning Anti-Muslim bigotry in our nation’s history….We are tremendously proud to be part of a body that has put forth a condemnation of all forms of bigotry including anti-Semitism, racism, and white supremacy”, which is in direct contradiction to her affiliates and ties to various terrorists organizations, along with her recent public hate speech toward non-Muslims.
The democratic leaders in Minnesota were perplexed on advancing a bill banning the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation, stating, “The bill’s GOP sponsor and colleagues in the Senate have gone wishy-washy on the bill due to pushback from certain segments of the refugee-resettlement industry, which is very powerful in Minnesota, getting paid millions in federal dollars annually to distribute Somali refugees throughout the state.”
After legal battles between the Somali and democratic leaders in Minnesota and those in Michigan concerning people from Somali bringing their little girls to a suburb of Detroit for the female genial mutilation surgery, the push back from the democrats and Shari loving leadership of both states closed the cases against the doctors who were performing the surgeries, and it was determined in Minnesota that instead of taking the children away from their families or sending the parents to jail, the use of public tax dollars were better used to try to “educate” the population on why it is wrong to mutilate their daughters’ genitalia, somehow neglecting to forget that this is called for by Sharia Law and that is something that a lot of Muslims will not go against.
A Centers for Disease Control study from last year estimates that 513,000 U.S. girls and women are at risk of having their genitals mutilated and so far it appears people like Ilham Omar and her counterparts are winning.
