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!
The newest St. Luke Production live one man, multi-media drama about the first Black Catholic priest in the United States is coming to Detroit and Southgate, Michigan. Please share the message!
St. Luke Production says, “Martha Tolton was a Missouri slave and a mother, who knew there was only one way to save her family – she had to escape to freedom in Illinois. In the dead of night, she slipped away. It was twenty miles to the Missouri – Illinois border. On the other side lay freedom, but she had to get there first, and that meant crossing the vast Mississippi River. Terrified, she prayed for a miracle, and sure enough, God provided. When reached the river, she found a dilapidated row boat and, with bullets from angry Confederate soldiers whizzing by her ears, she rowed to freedom. Now, more than 150 years later, we know God had a mission for this heroic mother. Through Martha Tolton’s courage, determination, and most of all through her devout Catholic faith, the first African American priest, Father Augustus Tolton, was given to the people of God. His story is amazing and inspiring, and we need to hear it. Tolton will have a powerful impact of healing in our country and all over the world, drawing ALL people to the truth of Jesus Christ. Like Mama Tolton crossing the Mississippi in a leaky boat in the middle of the night, let’s trust in God, and take a risk. Let’s cross that river, and bring freedom to souls through the Truth of Jesus Christ. It’s worth it.”
Black History Month 2019 in the United States of America began on Friday, February 1 and ends on Thursday, February 28.
Further down on the page I have included a lot of good sources as far as the massive amounts of influential people and organizations that make up our current and past black history, but this year I want to talk about “black abortion”, because as of today there have been 18,307,423+ black abortions. Can you imagine how many of those lives may have been like Martin Luther King, a future 2nd black President, the next Michael Jackson or Prince, a doctor that saved so many lives or came up with a new medical procedure, a honest political figure that helped instead of ignoring or destroying the education, living conditions, employment numbers, black homeowner rates, etc.?
According to World Magazine “Abortion still devastates the African-American community at an alarming and disproportionate rate, but black pro-life activists are fighting for lives.”
In New York City, hundreds more black babies died from abortion than were born alive in 2016. In years past, that number has been in the thousands.
Pro-abortion groups reject the idea of abortion as a form of racism, but pro-life advocates have noted a high percentage of Planned Parenthood centers operate within walking distance of black or Hispanic communities.
Although people automatically think “Republican” when it comes to pro-life, there are very active Democrat Pro-Life Groups. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about Democrat Officials. According to Slate, “Shortly after the anti-abortion group Democrats for Life of America was founded in the late 1990s, its website listed more than 40 members of Congress it had identified as pro-life. Times have changed. In 2018, Democrats for Life found only seven candidates, which actually dwindled down to 6 to endorse in both chambers of Congress combined.
As the Millennial generation tends to be more active and is moving more and more toward pro-life (having their own pro-life groups), young people like Caleb Hanna, a West Virginia State University student who at 19 became the youngest African American to be elected to a state legislature in November 2018. Caleb is a pro-life Christian who won on a Platform of “God, Guns, and Babies“
Abortion is the leading cause of death in the African American community. The fact is that more African American babies have been killed by abortion during the past 36 years of legalized abortion than the total number of African American deaths from all other causes combined.

According to ASALH, “When Carter G. Woodson established Negro History week in 1926, he realized the importance of providing a theme to focus the attention of the public. The intention has never been to dictate or limit the exploration of the Black experience, but to bring to the public’s attention important developments that merit emphasis.” As time progressed, so did the idea that one week was not enough time to honor all the contributions made by the black community, so since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month.
“For those interested in the study of identity and ideology, an exploration of ASALH’s Black History themes is itself instructive. Over the years, the themes reflect changes in how people of African descent in the United States have viewed themselves, the influence of social movements on racial ideologies, and the aspirations of the black community……”
“Control, not choice, was Sanger’s key word when it came to matters of reproduction, said Angela Franks, Ph.D., an expert on Sanger who has written several books about her life. Franks said Sanger believed that some of the “unfit” should be forced to not reproduce.”
More and more examples of Sanger’s goals outside of exterminating the Black community, birth control, forced sterilization, population control, medical experiments on people, and the push for euthanasia for such reasons as depression, Aspergers, Down Syndrome, and other handicaps is just a short outline of what this alleged “ICON” and “HERO” stood for. So many of the reasons given for euthanasia now-a-days are medical problems that can be easily treated with medication and/or therapy.
To read more about this issue and the movie that is coming out, please click on the link below:
“Surveys taken in the United States indicate that an estimated 46% of physicians agree that voluntary euthanasia should be allowed for certain situations, with 41% disagreeing altogether and 14% believe it to be circumstantial. “
Below are the “TOP” ten reasons for euthanasia, from those people who think this way, realizing to them these are “Human Rights”.
1. The Hippocratic oath supports euthanasia.
2. Euthanasia saves lives.
3. Euthanasia does not shorten lifespans by as much as is portrayed.
4. Everyone has a right to a good death, therefore a good death must not be denied to those who want one.
5. Euthanasia is properly regulated.
6. Euthanasia does not harm to others.
7. Euthanasia protects self-hood and human dignity.
8. Euthanasia is not immoral.
9. People have the explicit right to choose.
10. People have the right to die.
