Clearing Up Confusion About Heartbeat vs. Dismemberment


We understand that some churches have recently received requests from the Heartbeat Coalition to make their petitions available after services.  Right to Life of Michigan ( recommends that this is counter productive as explained in the article below.

Thank you again to everyone who signed the petition to ban dismemberment abortion. We reached our goal.  The signatures are currently being reviewed and validated by the election commission. Then the citizen initiated legislation to ban this late term abortion in Michigan will advance to the legislature where it is expected to pass and go into effect and cannot be vetoed by the governor.

On their website and in conversations with many, we’ve heard that the Heartbeat Coalition is misleading people about Right to Life of Michigan’s dismemberment abortion ban, telling people it will not save lives. The Heartbeat Coalition says the heartbeat ban they are working on with their own petition drive will save lives in Michigan. That’s not accurate.

Here’s a couple of quick points explaining why:

  • The heartbeat petition drive is not organized by Right to Life of Michigan and is separate from the petition drive to bypass Governor Whitmer’s veto of the dismemberment abortion ban.
  • Michigan law already bans abortions before and after a heartbeat is detected. Governor Whitmer wants to repeal our existing 100% abortion ban before Roe v. Wade is overturned and it can be fully enforced again.
  • A heartbeat ban can’t go into effect until Roe v. Wade is overturned. Our 100% abortion ban would also then be fully enforceable, making the heartbeat ban irrelevant. A heartbeat ban can never go into legal effect or stop a single abortion in Michigan.
  • The U.S. Supreme Court can use any prolife law to overturn Roe v. Wade, including a dismemberment ban.
  • We fear a pro-abortion judge could abuse the heartbeat ban to stop our 100% abortion ban from being fully enforceable when Roe v. Wade is overturned, keeping abortion legal in the first weeks of pregnancy.
  • Our dismemberment abortion ban would take away the most common late-term abortion procedure and will save lives. There is a legal path for it to be upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court if they aren’t ready to overturn Roe v. Wade.
  • Focusing on a dismemberment ban helps us educate Michigan citizens about the violence of abortion, just like the movie Unplanned.

Below is an in-depth discussion of this confusion.

Currently, the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision blocks significant abortion bans from going into effect. That includes Alabama, Georgia, and other states that have recently signed different bans into law; lower courts strike these laws down using the precedent of Roe v. Wade. A heartbeat bill needs Roe v. Wade to be overturned in order to go into effect.

Michigan is unique. Michigan has a 100% prolife abortion ban already on the books. It bans all abortions except to save the life of mother, including before a heartbeat is detected. The Michigan Supreme Court and lower courts have consistently ruled that our 100% ban is in legal effect, but not fully enforceable because of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton. Once Roe v. Wade is gone, our 100% abortion ban goes back into full effect.

There is no practical chance that a conservative U.S. Supreme Court would uphold a heartbeat ban as constitutional while still blocking other abortion laws from taking effect.

A heartbeat ban could never go into legal effect in Michigan or stop a single abortion, because Michigan already has a heartbeat ban, legally speaking. You can’t double-ban something!

Planned Parenthood fears our 100% abortion ban. Governor Whitmer says she wants it repealed as soon as possible. Bills to repeal it have been introduced by pro-abortion state legislators. Even pro-abortion Attorney General Dana Nessel understands our road map to ending abortion in Michigan and wants to stop it.

Despite assurances from the Heartbeat Coalition and their legal advice from outside our state, there is a chance a heartbeat ban could harm our 100% prolife abortion ban. In the hands of a pro-abortion judge arguing that the new law replaces our 100% old law, a heartbeat ban in Michigan could keep abortions legal in the first few weeks of pregnancy after Roe v. Wade is overturned, costing thousands of unborn lives. We don’t like to discourage people who are excited about making a difference, but our view is based on legal advice from constitutional attorneys who are experts with Michigan law.

If you’d like to read some of those legal opinions, please click here and click here.

We’ve tried to explain these facts to the Heartbeat Coalition and their leadership from Ohio and Indiana.

We don’t need a heartbeat ban to end abortion in Michigan! We already have the exact law we need; we just need Roe v. Wade overturned for it to fully work. If there’s no practical chance for a heartbeat bill to go into legal effect, why put our current abortion ban in any danger? The Heartbeat Coalition says their ban will help force the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, but nobody can force the U.S. Supreme Court to take up any case. They can overturn Roe v. Wade using any prolife law once they are ready, including a dismemberment ban, or perhaps the Alabama abortion ban that’s more protective than a heartbeat ban.

We appreciate the prolife fervor of the Heartbeat Coalition’s Ohio and Indiana leadership; the heartbeat ban is a right bill, but for the wrong state. Our appeal to them is to focus their efforts on another state that isn’t in Michigan’s unique legal position. For example, when Roe v. Wade is overturned, abortion will remain legal through all nine months of pregnancy in New York, the exact opposite of Michigan. A heartbeat bill in New York could go into legal affect there after Roe v. Wade is overturned and save so many lives. A heartbeat ban can’t legally save a single life here; it only has educational value.

It would be terrible if we botched a golden opportunity before us to educate Michigan citizens directly about the violence of abortion. When people see a video showing how dismemberment abortions work, it changes them. The movie Unplanned has been sweeping the nation because it shows the truth about abortion. This is exactly the right moment to have those conversations.

The Heartbeat Coalition has been confusing people about our dismemberment ban. It’s true a dismemberment ban won’t entirely ban late-term abortions, but it will stop many late-term abortions. The Abortion Industry relies on the dismemberment abortion procedure as the cheapest, quickest method. By using the dismemberment method, it allows them to “donate” the baby’s organs and other body parts for experiments. Taking that barbaric procedure away from them will save lives.

Our dismemberment ban simply adds the definition of the dismemberment abortion procedure to our existing partial-birth abortion ban. The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld partial-birth abortion bans as constitutional, even with Roe v. Wade. Our dismemberment abortion ban has a legal path to being upheld in the courts, even if the Supreme Court isn’t ready to overturn Roe v. Wade. If the Supreme Court is ready to overturn Roe v. Wade, Michigan is set to ban all abortions—no heartbeat ban is necessary.

We’re strongly encouraging all prolife people in Michigan to focus on getting our dismemberment ban done by achieving the monumental taskof collecting 400,000 signatures. It would be such a waste if we fail in that effort because people were confused and distracted by a separate effort to ban something that’s already banned.

We’ve labored for 52 years to protect Michigan’s 100% abortion ban so that when Roe v. Wade is overturned, we can end all abortions in Michigan, not just abortions after 6 weeks. The end of Roe v. Wade is in sight! Let’s not risk snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in Michigan. We can’t lose focus on this out-of-state heartbeat plan from leaders who won’t be here to help pick up the pieces if it works out poorly.

Let’s complete this life-saving task of ending dismemberment abortions by working alongside our long-time Michigan prolife and pro-family allies.

Picketing the CEO of Planned Parenthood – Canton, MI


Lori Carpentier – Head of Michigan’s Planned Parenthood

(Reprint of letter from Lynn Mills)

Dear Pro-life prayer warriors and activist!

We have a Planned Parenthood event that you don’t want to miss! We plan on picketing the head of Michigan’s Planned Parenthood, Lori Carpentier next week when she appears as the invited speaker in Canton, Michigan for the Canton Democratic Club.

canton good

The event will be on Oct 16, Wednesday from 6 PM to 7:15 PM rain or shine at 1150 S. Canton-Center Rd., Canton, MI 48188 at the Canton Municipal Building. Public Parking is available there. We have enough signs, but feel free to make and bring your favorite ones.

This Friday a Planned Parenthood satellite clinic in Saginaw, MI will be closing its doors for good. Any Planned Parenthood facility closing is a Blessing!

Planned Parenthood has taken SIX of their other satellite clinics over the last five years and turned them into abortion pill mills because abortion is where the money is! ABORTION IS THE Planned Parenthood MONEY MAKER!

We need to show up in high volume numbers to let the CEO of Planned Parenthood know this is unacceptable to the citizens in the state of Michigan and we will peacefully and prayerfully resist them at every turn!

Please spread the word with your prayer groups, social media and mailing list. The only way to stop the evil of child killing and Planned Parenthood is by doing something about it.

On Life Chain Sunday I noticed so many more people came out because it was a special event. Please consider this THAT special event! Give Lori Carpentier the pro-life welcome she deserves. VOLUMES of pro-lifers saying NO to ABORTION!

Put it on your calendar and rearrange your schedule if need be. Bring your church!

Amazon recently sent Pro-Life Michigan an email asking us to become part of their When customers purchase items through this program a small percentage of the purchase is donated to the 501(c)(3) organization you list. Many of our supporters purchase items through Amazon and we encourage you to purchase your items through @ making sure you put in Pro-Life Michigan as the non-profit you want to donate to! As you know, I am a small organization and operate on a shoestring budget. I do not take a salary for all the time I devote to administrative and research efforts. I need every donation I can get to purchase signs, literature and obtain legal documents which need to be paid for.

In Christ,

Planned Parenthood Protest


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.

Livonia Planned Parenthood Center


(Article written by Anna Danyko, Upper Downriver Right to Life)

Take a closer look at the photo below.   It’s a photo taken of the door of the new Planned Parenthood clinic in Livonia, MI.  Read the logo:  “Care. No matter what.”  (sic)  They will be most happy to refer you to one of their closest abortion mills to destroy the life of your unborn baby for a PRICE!   Read below–from their website.  Just look at the FIRST item under Services Offered:   Abortion Referrals.  And as noted below, they are so proud to tout that they are the nation’s largest provider of sex education.  (TEACH ‘EM HOW TO HAVE SEX EARLY SO IT CAN INCREASE THEIR ABORTION SERVICE PROFITS)  –Abomination

I’ve been praying out in front of this new Livonia Planned Parenthood clinic, 15707 Farmington Road, Livonia, MI, for a few weeks now.  AS SOON AS YOU ARE ABLE, take a drive out there and pray on the grounds.  It takes about 25 minutes to get there from Downriver.  There are few ways more beneficial than praying out there at the mill site.  They don’t do surgical abortions, but as listed at their site, they pass out “Plan B” emergency contraception–which is a form of chemical abortion. 

FOR MORE INFORMATION:  Go to to check out the times Lynn Mills will be out there with her many signs coordinating some of the Pro-Life activity going on out there in front of the Livonia PP.   Make your own signs if you want.  I do, and have many.  If interested, contact me. and we’ll drive out together or meet out there at other times.  Much “street education” can be done with signs to the many cars driving by that busy intersection.  Pray Almighty God moves His Powerful Arm to close that anti-LIFE center.  Faith alone is not going to do it.  It is only by prayer PLUS action will God remove it!

God Bless All Of Your Efforts,

Feedback on our Planned Parenthood Protest on April 28, 2018

I knew that we had been off to a slow start for publicity, so had expected that the 5 people who  car pooled from OL Scapular were going to be it, but 5 others came! (from Livonia, Dearborn and Trenton).  We had no counter protesters, perhaps due to the late posting of our location.

The bus drivers going up and down Cass slowed down, waved, tooted their horn and allowed their passengers to read our signs. Not a lot of traffic before 10 am. About 10:40 am, a young woman parked and ran some things into Planned Parenthood.  She looked angry.  She had a Planned Parenthood insignia on her that I saw. She didn’t say anything to us. She just did her errand and left.

Just before we were finished, a young woman jogging crossed the street to speak to us. She (Brianna Sacks) was in town from California, working for Buzz Feed to cover the Trump Rally Saturday evening. She spoke to me, took some pictures, was not at all judgemental, but seemed interested. I gave her the press release that I had personalized from the template and the hand out to defund Planned Parenthood.

Pro-life Protest at Planned Parenthood

A planned demonstration outside Planned Parenthood (near Wayne State University) on Saturday, February 11, 2017, by Pro-life advocates, quickly turned into a support rally for the facility (Planned Parenthood) and women’s rights, with approximately 1,000 people, when the majority sign-carrying women, turned out in front of the office and lined both sides of Cass between West Canfield and Willis. Counter protests by Pro-choice advocates were largely coordinated and spread via Planned Parenthood and social media such as Facebook, who fear that the new administration wants to cut federal funding for Planned Parenthood and to ban most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, by a President who has pledged to sign both measures should they reach his desk.

According to the Detroit News, “The initial demonstration was one of 225 anti-abortion public awareness protests taking place across the nation Saturday, including 15 locations across Michigan, according to Monica Migliorino Miller, director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, who estimated about 100 of her group’s supporters showed up at the Cass Avenue location….Similar protest were also held at Planned Parenthood clinics Ferndale, Livonia, Warren, Ann Arbor, Burton, Grand Rapids, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Marquette, Muskegon, Petoskey, and Traverse City.”

Action in a local Pro-life group is imperative, as is making your voice heard via social media, contacting your representatives, and teaching our young via conversation based on fact, not the fiction that they are seeing and hearing that has taken over most schools, protests, and on the news. Unlike Planned Parenthood who is funded so deeply by the government and big corporations to organize and advertise (we cannot compete with them on that large of a scale as our work is mostly done on a volunteer basis, or private donations), so we have to band together in greater numbers, make whatever financial contributions you can, and by using any source necessary to get the TRUTH out there to the women of childbearing age, or even before. It is a sad commentary that young high school students who are so misinformed can skip school to protest with the Pro-choice group and be encouraged by their teachers to do so. If you have a blog, a twitter account, a Facebook account, or any other type of social media source, use them as a tool to fight for LIFE.

Planned Parenthood may be able to do more in someways than we can with their access of money, but we can win this fight because we have GOD and TRUTH on our side. Pray that the new administration follows through with their promises. Pray that when you speak, God will help you find the right words to say. Pray that we can get more ultrasounds to use as they help a mom choose between life and death. Pray that you will be led to make a difference in someone’s life. Pray for our sidewalk counsellors, our Crisis Pregnancy Centers, and all of the people who are also praying for an end to abortion.

Matthew 18:19 Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.

Job 22:27 You will pray to him, and he will hear you, and you will fulfill your vows.
Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Matthew: 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”

Psalm 37:6 Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Psalm 91:15 When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him.

Call to Action on Standing Rock Pipeline


Early Monday news – I love that the Veterans going to Standing Rock seemed to make a difference. It is about time that so many other people are standing with the Sioux tribe. It is way past time. I’ll be keeping my eye on the breaking news today to see if the people will be leaving as asked, or if they will remain to keep up the pressure. The Corp of Engineers has said they would not try to force people to leave, but thousands want to stay to make sure their voices are finally heard.

The Governor of the state apparently is fighting this, stating this “is a serious mistake”, so for all you activists out there, please call, e-mail, fax, or write the Governor Jack Dalrymple, 600 E. Blvd., Bismarck, ND 58505-0001,Fax: (701) 328-2205, Phone: (701) 328-2200, e-mail: Send the info to your friends, and post it on Twitter and any blogs or websites you have.

I’m not liking the little I know of what the Trump administration may do, but I’m holding back any opinion until he is in office and I know more about his plan for “privatization”, which from past history doesn’t work out too good for the Native American community. It could very well mean more land being taken away from them, so now it is a “wait and see” game, but for the time being, the pipeline appears it will be redirected away from Sacred ground and the water supply at Standing Rock.
