Training for Petition Drive to Prohibit Dismemberment Abortion

Michigan Residents say NO to Dismemberment Abortion

An opportunity is before Michigan citizens. By working together, we can ban the inhumane abortion procedure known as the D&E or dilation and evacuation method. This method of abortion uses surgical instruments to forcibly remove arms and legs from a living human being in the womb.

Michigan’s Constitution allows the people to initiate legislation through a petition. The petition seeks legislation that would amend our partial-birth abortion ban by adding the equally horrific dismemberment abortion procedure to that ban. The advantage of this approach is that the bill’s language cannot be changed by the legislature, but more importantly, it cannot be vetoed by Governor Whitmer! We need to collect 400,000 signatures, and we have 180 days to do it, starting on June 26, 2019.

Right to Life Volunteers Needed

jjj

Upper Downriver Right to Life usually takes the summer off and has no meetings in July and August.  This summer is an exception.

On June 20, many of us attended the training held by Right to Life of Michigan.  We learned about the legislation that was passed that would ban dismemberment abortions.  Governor Whitmer has promised to veto it.  The state constitution provides a means to by-pass the veto.

We will join with Right to Life of Michigan and collect signatures on petitions to ban dismemberment abortion.  You can read the press release from RLM here.

For your convenience, UD-RTL will hold two special meetings of one hour to explain the situation, enlist the help of volunteers from churches and distribute petitions.  Please make plans to attend one of these meetings.
  • Tuesday, July 9 from 7:30 to 8:30 pm at the Right to Life Resource Center, 2010 Eureka, Wyandotte (734-282-6100)
  • Wednesday, July 10 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm at the same location.
Please help us recruit representatives from as many churches as possible and RSVP to wyandotteRLM@gmail.com as to which session you plan to attend.  We will have information and petitions available at the meetings.  We need your help to secure our share of the 400,000 signatures needed.  Please invite others who may be interested!

If you need a letter to a pastor, please let me know and I will get it to you.

Also, please watch our “Events” page on our Facebook account and volunteer for any of the upcoming events, or for various committees that put together an event.  Often times we need people to make phone calls, or help stuff envelopes, hand out flyers, and join us in our parades, Life Walk, Oratory Contests, Life Chain, our Yard and Bake Sale, and so many other opportunities to reach out to help.

Yanomami Indians Dying From Measles

Yanomami indians, Amazon, Brazil

The Yanomami are the largest relatively isolated tribe in South America. They live in the rainforests and mountains of northern Brazil and southern Venezuela.

Yanomami Indians of Venezuela and Brazil are dying from a devastating measles epidemic. 

One baby has died and the Yanomami speak of many more dead and dying in the forest.

The Yanomami, like many tribal peoples, have little immunity to Western diseases. Outbreaks of diseases killed a fifth of the Yanomami in Brazil in the past.

Survival and our supporters are lobbying as hard as we can to ensure the Yanomami receive the medical care they need to survive.

Your emails and tweets have already pushed the authorities into taking some action.

But much more needs to be done to stop this urgent humanitarian crisis getting even worse.

Please email the Pan American Health Organization, and the Venezuela and Brazil governments, urging them to provide immediate medical care to the Yanomami, and protect the Yanomami’s territory from invaders.

Let’s make as much noise as possible – you can email (see below), Tweet, or post to Facebook. Better still… do all three!

Thank you so much for your help.

Best wishes,

Stephen Corry
Director

I just signed a petition from “America Needs Fatima” and hope you will consider doing so as well because the State of California is forcing little children to attend indecent and explicit pro-LGBT classes. And parents can’t opt out.

In good conscience, we can’t stay silent — and allow the Culture of Death to poison more young minds.

$ 3.9 Million to a White Man for Wounded Knee?…NO WAY!

Wounded Knee pic

Reprint from:  https://www.change.org/p/national-historic-site-of-wounded-knee-inc-3-9-million-to-a-white-man-for-wounded-knee-no-way

How sad Tim Giago (Mario Gonzales is involved) is promoting the Commercialization of Wounded Knee! I wonder if he has consulted the relatives of those buried there first?….and why would he pay 3.8 Million for land owned by a white man smack in the middle of a reservation?…Something wrong here! United Urban Warrior Society will NOT support this!….Assimilation at its best!

“United Urban Warrior Society” doesn’t support this at all and will stand with those who oppose it! and will host a couple rallies this summer at the Wounded Knee Site & Tims news Paper “Native Sun news”

Please contact them and tell them NO! WAY!:

P.O. Box 9344, Rapid City, SD. 57709               Phone: 605.716.5421, Fax: 605.716.5425

Giago: “I signed an agreement to be the sole purchaser of Wounded Knee. The reason is that it has been sitting there idle and doing nothing for over 40 years.” Then he said: “I said the land would be put into trust for all of the tribes of the Great Sioux Nation.”

There is MAJOR! Questions here about Giago’s true motivation and intent here. If purchase does occur, who is he planning on holding it in trust with? The Federal Government???? When you start looking at this deal it starts to smell. After Wounded Knee ’73 old Gildersleve sold this to Czwyczynski for $ 20,000. Now this brings up 2 questions.

1) How the heck did Gildersleve ever get a clear title to those 40 acres anyway? According to the 1868 treaty a white man cannot own land within the boundaries of the reservation! unless he is married to a Native who is an enrolled member, but when she dies it goes to her family NOT the white guy! The Gildersleve illegally sold this land and the Oglala Sioux Tribe should fight this and retain the land! From what I have been told the BIA made this mistake and hasn’t got the balls to fight it! Or being paid off to look the other way!

2). Why is Giago willing to pay $ 3,900,000? That’s MILLION dollars for something that sold for $20,000. In the 1970’s? Trust me; he’s greasing his and Mario’s palm somehow on this deal. Mario Gonzales is involved here we know its about money and this alone draws many red flags!

What about the other land owners around this site? What is their input? From what I have been told they are not happy about this deal either.

I have been told that Tim Giago has never done anything for the Memorial at Wounded Knee. Back in 1973 he supported Dick Wilson’s regime. Dick & his goons used Tim’s paper “Lakota Times” to trash & condemn AIM & murder our people at that time. So, Mr. Giago has blood on his hands. It is well known that Tim Giago has attacked and wrote stories against the American Indian Movement “Blaming them for firebombing his news paper‘s office in Pine Ridge”. He has also spoken against Leonard Peltier, slamming those who would support him.

Giago says: he has already created a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization called the National Historic Site of Wounded Knee Inc. There is a Wounded Knee Memorial already there at the site! But because it is associated to The American Indian Movement he will not support it nor recognize it.(Own by the Fire Lighting Tiospaye!)

Giago: My attorney is Mario Gonzalez, who is Oglala Lakota, and he will be putting together the trust for all the tribes. Scared of this! Mario has been removed from the Treaty Council and has been involved in several scams to get money from the Black Hills!

Giago has also talked with former U.S. Senator Tom Daschle in Washington DC and several friends in New York City to begin fundraising efforts in Washington DC and New York. (This boils my blood! Why would we ask the same Government who massacred our people in cold blood and still honor 18-medals of honor to the soldiers who killed innocent woman and children at this site!)

Giago: Can you imagine a really beautiful Holocaust Museum and a big trade pavilion for Indian artisans and craftspeople? They could set up booths year-round and sell their arts and crafts to the tourists. We would have tourists come from all over the world and stay in Rapid City go to the restaurants and hotels, Take buses to Wounded Knee, It would create over 200 jobs For the people down there. It would be also a boost financially to Rapid City, South Dakota,” he says.

Are you kidding me? Here is the true motive right here! He said it in his own words! Why would we want to boost Rapid City and not Pine Ridge?

A little side note here folks! In all this talk there has been NO mention of those Murdered here! Those Ancestors buried there are not all Ogalala’s they are Miniconju’s and Hunkpapa’s From Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Have their relatives been asked about this? And are they involved? They must have a say in this matter!

This land should be returned back to the tribe and the land must! If sold be sold at a fair market value…and ANYONE wanting to build a memorial on this sacred ground must have the approval of the families of those buried there and an agreement with landowners nearby! As well as an agreement to include or support the Wounded Knee Take over in 1973! Without predigests!

When I first posted that we would not support this I recieved this response from Time Giago!

“Hi James. I am sorry you are so angry that I have set out to buy the lands around Wounded Knee. I think this is a time we should all pull together. My feelings about AIM and Leonard Peltier should have nothing to do with what we are trying to accomplish. There is no one who has worked harder to save the Black Hills than Mario Gonzalez. He litigated for the Black Hills in 1980 before the Supreme Court and the Hills would have been assumed purchased if he had not represented several tribes in litigating this action. The preservation of the Wounded Knee site is of historic importance and as I said the land would be put into trust for all of the tribes of the Great Sioux Nation. What is wrong with that? I need your help and not your anger. Tim”

In closing Mario Gonzalez did not! Litigate for the Black Hills in 1980 before the Supreme Court! It was the Black Hills Sioux Nation Treaty Council who he at the time he worked for and was asked by the elders to do this! They dismissed him because he was scamming moneys and have since been caught a couple times with his hands in the cookie jar!

This is a bad deal! Why would we keep buying our own lands back from the white people at 10 times the value when it still belongs to us as per the 1868 Treaty! Something wrong here people! Think about it! Then to turn around and ask us to chip in when our people and community’s are some of the poorest in the Nation?

URGENT: NIH PROPOSES TAXPAYER-FUNDED RESEARCH ON ANIMAL-HUMAN CHIMERAS

image009PUBLIC COMMENTS NEEDED

Your help is needed to defend the dignity of human life and there is a limited time to act. The National Institutes of Health (NIH), a federally-funded medical research agency, is soliciting comments from the public through Tuesday, September 6, 2016 on an important life issue, the creation of human-animal chimeras. Comments must be submitted before midnight (Eastern) on September 6. Please read the directions below carefully to submit comments online or by mail.

On August 4, 2016 the NIH announced that it plans to lift its moratorium on funding research that involves injecting human embryonic stem cells into animal embryos thus creating part-human and part-animal organisms known as chimeras. This means that, for the first time, the Federal government will begin spending taxpayer dollars on the creation and manipulation of new beings whose very existence blurs the line between humans and non-human animals. 

This research is ethically problematic for several reasons: 1) It relies on the killing of humans at the embryonic stage to harvest their stem cells;  2) It involves the production of animals that could have partly or substantially human brains; 3) It involves the production of animals that could have human sperm or eggs (with a stipulation that precautions are taken so such animals are not allowed to breed); 4) It allows the introduction of human embryonic stem cells into animal embryos early in their development such that it may be very difficult to know the extent to which human cells contribute to the final organism.  Consequently, researchers won’t know what their moral obligations may be toward that being.  Tragically, the NIH has apparently given little, if any, consideration to these or any other ethical concerns with regard to this research.

Recommended actions to take immediately:

  • Submit your comments today using the NIH online comment form with the following steps:
    • Copy the suggested message below to your clipboard and paste it into the first large box on the NIH form.

Suggested Message:

I object strongly to the NIH’s proposal to rescind its moratorium on funding of research involving human-animal chimeras.  I do not want my tax dollars being used for grossly unethical research involving the creation and manipulation of part-human, part-animal beings whose very existence blurs the line between humans and non-human animals.  This proposed research raises all the ethical problems of human embryonic stem cell research in general and serious additional problems related to the creation of human-animal beings with partly or substantially human brains and/or human gametes.

I also object strongly to the NIH’s apparent lack of consideration for the ethical issues implicated by this research.  Indeed, the NIH pledged to “undertake a deliberative process to evaluate the state of the science in this area, the ethical issues that should be considered, and the relevant animal welfare concerns associated with these types of studies” when the moratorium was put in place in 2015. Yet, to date there is no evidence of any discussion of the ethical issues involved in creating partly human animals.

I strongly urge you to maintain the current moratorium on funding research involving the creation and manipulation of human-animal chimeras.

 

First Amendment infringement: First state to ban preaching the Bible in churches

logo_no_ar

I signed and you may want to…

In Iowa, it’s now against the law to preach the Bible, at least according to the Civil Rights Commission. The commission is stretching a state code to ban churches from teaching on biblical sexuality and to force the churches to open restrooms and locker rooms to members of the opposite sex. The commission reasons that since churches are places of public accommodation, they cannot “discriminate” against anyone on the basis of sexual orientation.

This is absurd and unconscionable. Our culture has become so obsessed with sex, that we are losing our fundamental principles. America was founded on the principles of freedom—particularly freedom of religion. Please stand with us in fighting back against the Iowa Civil Rights Commission.  Sign here: http://www.citizengo.org/en/sc/35795-against-law-preach-bible

We cannot allow the State of Iowa a to muzzle people of faith and force us into silence. This is an issue of critical importance. We must stand together to make our voice heard and our strength felt.

The Civil Rights Commission has interpreted Chapter 216 of the Iowa Code to mean that if a pastor discusses anything in the Bible that relates to sexuality or marriage, he has broken the law. Sign here: http://www.citizengo.org/en/sc/35795-against-law-preach-bible

Cary Gordon is the pastor of Cornerstone World Outreach, a nondenominational church with around 900 members in Sioux City, Iowa. He says his greatest concern is the “flagrant disrespect for the First Amendment of the Constitution.” Under this interpretation of the code, “the state retains the power to correct or control what I say and teach out of the Bible.”

As Christians, we need to show that we will not quietly abdicate our freedoms. The right to religious liberty is ingrained in the very fabric of our nation. The ability to faithfully preach the word of God must be protected. Please stand with us in pushing back against this attempt to silence the church from discussing biblical teachings on sexuality. Rally your church, your family, and your neighbors: this is something we all can, and must, resist.

If this could happen in Iowa, it could happen anywhere.

Sincerely,

Kira Nelson and the entire CitizenGO team

P.S. Pastor Gordon says of the law that, “it’s fundamentally wrong and I can’t comply with that. I’ve taken an oath to the Lord Jesus Christ, and I obey the Bible above all men. I have to obey God, and that puts me in a precarious position.”  Sign here: http://www.citizengo.org/en/sc/35795-against-law-preach-bible

Thank you for standing with us!
