Planned Parenthood Protest

11

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. 

22

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.

33

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.

A Grant to Help with the Mobile Ultrasound Unit

ulta

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.

Wyandotte Christmas Parade

a423729baab6ad85b006bdb62b912376

You, your family, and friends are ALL INVITED to “walk for life” in Wyandotte’s Christmas Parade along with Upper Downriver Right To Life.  PLEASE JOIN US next Saturday, November 18, 2017.  The parade officially begins @ 10:00 a.m.   We are NUMBER 39 – remember all units are in chronological order so we are easy to find.  We will line up on Biddle between Spruce and Cedar – probably closer to Spruce.  Just look for Rosalie’s red car.

We need people to carry our sign, pass out candy and Christmas greeting cards.  REMEMBER, the parade goes on rain, snow, or shine.  Wear layers to keep warm.  (Actually, it’s suppose to warm up by the end of the week.)  ALSO, since we are closer to the beginning of the parade this time around, we will probably begin walking around 10:15 a.m. and should be done by 11:15 a.m.

If you think about it, that’s really not that much time to devote to the cause of LIFE next Saturday morning.  I hope to see many people there.  The parades are always a fun and a positive pro-life outreach to our local community.  By the way, feel free to get creative with a Christmas theme in regard to your dress – wear bells.  There’s only one catch:  No one is allowed to dress up in the full Santa suit as that’s reserved for the city’s own Santa who will be in attendance in the last unit of the parade.

CHOOSE LIFE PHONE CALL TO GOV. SNYDER – STARTING THURSDAY, JUNE 8

index

The Michigan Senate completed action on the Choose Life fundraising license plate bill on June 6 and it will reach Gov. Snyder’s desk in the next several days. Because the governor has expressed his reluctance to support this legislation, we are asking everyone to pray and to call the governor’s office.

Starting on Thursday, June 8, 9:00 a.m. and thereafter, get everyone you can to call Gov. Snyder’s office in Lansing, 517-373-3400, with this message:

 “Governor Snyder we are praying for you and ask for your support of the women and children who will be helped by the Choose Life license plate.”

 That’s the whole message, short and simple. Give your name and where you are from. Don’t attempt to persuade or argue with the staff answering the phone about the merits of the bill. What we do, which is to be prayerful and respectful and brief, will matter much more than the words we say.

Trenton Memorial Day March for Life

Southern Downriver Right to Life has invited us to join them in their Trenton Memorial Day March for Life.

“Nothing could be finer than to be in Trenton, Michigan in the morning!  Nothing could be sweeter than Right to Lifers marching in the morning!”

With apologies to Dean Martin, Al Jolson, Judy Garland, & the Carolinas, we need you next Saturday, May 27th at the Trenton Memorial Day Parade.

The parade is  relatively short, about 1 mile, and is a lot of fun!

Because  West Rd. is under construction, we will gather at King Rd. and Westfield.  The line-up starts at 9:30 AM, and the parade starts at 10:00. We will  march south on Westfield from King  to Fort Street. Parking is available at Trenton High School and the Kennedy Ice Arena.   Wear any Right to Life attire you have: shirts, pins, hats, etc. Otherwise, wear something with a patriotic (red, white, & blue) theme. If you don’t have any of this stuff, don’t worry, you will be just fine.

This is a great way to get a little exercise and stand-up for The Right to Life, the very first right Thomas Jefferson wrote about in our Declaration of Independence.

It will be beautiful parade in a beautiful city on a beautiful spring day.

But it will not compare with the beautiful smile on the Good Lord’s face when He sees YOU marching for His unborn children in the Trenton Memorial Day Parade.

So go ahead.  Put a smile on God’s face.  See you there.”
