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.
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!

General Session II:
Jaxon Strong: Celebrating a Precious Life from a Father’s Perspective
Brandon Buell didn’t truly recognize the purpose behind his prolife convictions until the birth of his son, Jaxon, born in 2014 with an extreme and incurable brain malformation. Before his birth, hope for Jaxon’s life was nearly impossible. Abortion was suggested frequently by medical professionals who stated Jaxon may live only a few weeks—if he were to even survive delivery—and he would be significantly limited in his abilities. Through faith, Jaxon’s parents chose life for their son. Against all odds, Jaxon is now five years old.

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.

Looking ahead to May 14, are you interested in attending Right to Life of Michigan Legislative Day?
It will be on the agenda for our March 12 and April 9 meetings. Generally, our affiliate has paid for registration, if you are interested.
Important, VERY important, that this year that your affiliate is represented at this Legislative Day – we will be discussing the upcoming Dismemberment Abortion Ban Legislation, Initiative. Please share with your board at your next meeting.
On Wednesday July 25th, at the Troy Christian Chapel, the Right To Life of MI awarded a grant to help with the mobile ultrasound unit that helps many mothers choose life for their unborn babies in Detroit. Our Upper Downriver Right to Life member, Emmanuel (man on the right in blue shirt), drives this mobile ultrasound unit and the funds will be used towards marketing our services to women searching for free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and abortions. We have been looking at new ways to let vulnerable women know who we are and where we are.
The grant is awarded to Pregnancy Resource organizations that work to save the lives of the pre-born and their mothers from the horrors of abortion in the city of Detroit. Last year three centers received the grant and this year ICU Birth Choice along with Detroit Pregnancy Test And Help Center (2 Doors down from Summit on McNichols) will receive the grant.
