“Unplanned” Premiers at 800 Theaters on March 29

(30 minute preview)

All Abby Johnson ever wanted to do was help women. As one of the youngest Planned Parenthood Clinic Directors in the nation. She counseled countless women about their reproductive choices and was involved in approximately 22,000 abortions, and told women on a daily basis about what abortion services were available for them, like the Title IX taxpayer funding of the abortion referral agency which continues to be a major point of contention between Republicans and Democrats. Her passion surrounding a woman’s right to choose even led her to become a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, fighting to enact legislation for the cause she so deeply believed in, but then she saw something, a life-changing experience that changed everything, leading Abby to join her former enemies at 40 Days For Life, and become one of the most ardent pro-life speakers in America.

(Abby Johnson)

This movie, “Unplanned”, brings an eye-opening look inside the abortion industry from a woman who was once its most passionate advocate. After reading Abby Johnson’s best-selling book of the same title, Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman were moved to bring this inspiring true story to the big screen, giving voice to a woman who has been on both sides of the abortion conversation.  Stumbling blocks were put everywhere when making this movie, by Planned Parenthood and Hollywood, by turning down nine out of ten times  their attempt to license songs (which meant main songs had to be cut back because of major labels refusing them license), having to secretly film in Oklahoma because of the controversy surrounding the subject matter, and finding a Director who was willing to produce it. 

The director of the forthcoming movie “Unplanned” says the pro-life film was made “for such a time as this,” as several states are advancing radical abortion laws.

Last month, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) signed into law a bill legalizing abortion “at any time when necessary to protect a woman’s life or health.” Lawmakers in Virginia, Rhode Island and Vermont are promoting similar bills.

For actress, Ashley Bratcher, making the pro-life-themed film “Unplanned” was both a professional challenge and a personal risk …“  “I knew from the very beginning, they warned me, they said, ‘You’re probably gonna get blacklisted. This could end your career.’ I said, ‘I don’t care. It’s worth it,’”   “This movie is not about judgment and condemnation, it’s about mercy and forgiveness,” she said. 

The $6 million “Unplanned” was partially financed by Michael Lindell, the multimillionaire founder of My Pillow. Worth an estimated $300 million, Lindell is a born-again Christian and outspoken supporter of President Donald Trump.

It has been said that, “Unplanned” is the most important movie you’ll ever see on the most controversial issue of our time. No matter which side of the fence you’re on, no one will leave this film unmoved by Abby’s journey.

Montana’s Missing Women’s Crisis

WHY, WHY, WHY is this problem not seen as a “problem” – in fact, it is much worse than a problem, it is a travesty that oozes of bigotry. Where are the feminists who love to brag about caring about women? Where are the journalists who ignore this issue like it is nothing of importance? Where are the protests or marches from all sides? Where are the phone calls, e-mails, faxes, or letters that should be sent to the officials in Montana, the BIA, the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, AIM, the Department of Justice, National Crime Information Center, the Urban Indian Health Institute, and all the other sources that need to be contacted?

During a recent Senate Indian Affairs Committee hearing, it was said “that Native Americans in Montana and across this country are dealing with violence at a much higher rate than the rest of the population and you cannot set foot in Indian country without hearing a heartbreaking story about this growing problem.”

The problem is not new in Montana, but in 2019, four pieces of legislation are proposed that should, at the federal level, revamp the way the U.S. Department of Justice compiles a database on missing and murdered Native women to help make sure all law enforcement agencies have necessary information.

In 2016 in a report by the Urban Indian Health Institute said “according to the National Crime Information Center there were 5,712 reports cited of slain or missing Native American women and girls, but only 116 of those cases were logged into a Department of Justice database.” “One of the problems stated is that it takes so long to bring attention to the problem of missing and murdered Native women because of inaccurate stereotypes that degrade how people view Native women.”

According to Senator Jon Tester, “Where’s the problem? Is it with BIA, is it with the FBI, is it with tribal law enforcement?” Tester wondered aloud at the December 12 hearing. “Why are we not finding these people? We would have a different reaction if this was a non-native.”

The Department of Justice has said it’s taken steps to address the problem. Last September it announced more than $113 million in grants to improve public safety, serve victims of crime and combat violence against women in American Indian and Alaska native communities. (This I will have to see to believe that any of this money will go to helping the missing women and girls.)

Studies have shown that this is NOT just a problem in Montana but throughout 71 cities in other states. Police in many U.S. cities fail to track murdered and/or missing Indigenous women. Investigations have shown that records have not been kept, nor have the stories of these missing or murdered women and girls been covered on the news. They have been missing from life, from the news, and from documentation. THIS MUST END!

Cuomo Gets His Way in NY and Abortion is Removed From the Penal Code

To watch the complete news report on video, please click on the link below:

https://www.democratandchronicle.com/videos/news/politics/albany/2019/01/22/video-impact-new-yorks-new-abortion-law/2645504002/

  • New York lawmakers are poised to pass legislation codifying rights protected by Roe v. Wade and other abortion rulings,

  • The measure to protect abortion rights in case they are overturned by the Supreme Court,

  • The bill would also authorize physician assistants and nurse practitioners to perform some abortions.

    (Original quote from the Democrat & Chronicle, Part of the U.S.A. Today Network)

    “ALBANY – The state Legislature on Tuesday afternoon will pass a long-stalled bill that will strengthen abortion rights in New York.

    The Reproductive Health Act is then expected to be signed into law later Tuesday at the state Capitol by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has pushed its passage for years.

    “We’re saying that here in New York, women’s health matters,” said Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, D-Yonkers. “We’re saying here in New York, women’s lives matter. We’re saying here in New York, women’s decisions matter.”

    The vote Tuesday comes on the anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade court case in 1973. The Senate passed it.

    In addition to the abortion bill, the Democratic-controlled Legislature will pass the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act, which will require insurers to cover contraception for patients.

    They will also pass the “boss bill,” which would ban employers from discriminating against employees over their reproductive health-care decisions.”

    To read the entire article you can click click Here!

    The effort to update abortion rights in New York comes as abortion rates have declined to historic lows in the state and nation.

    Cuomo’s next attempt is to have the New York Constitution changed to include these new laws.

IMMEDIATE ATTENTION NEEDED – STOP NY ABORTION LAW VOTE 1/22/19

Ben Shapiro Advocates for the Right of the Unborn At The March For Life

(Short Version)

Jewish Pro-Life Foundation says:  ” As the first speaker at the rally, Ben Shapiro’s impassioned, heartfelt, and religious sentiments about protecting the unborn reflected the feelings and attitudes of everyone in attendance. We were so happy to have personally witnessed this Jewish expression of righteousness, intelligence, and compassion.

Our experience at the 46th annual March For Life inspired and strengthened us to continue working to promote a culture of life in the Jewish community. During his hour long podcast aired from the stage, Ben Shapiro fired up the massive crowd with his pointed arguments debunking the illogical and deceitful reasons given for abortion.

To view the longer version where Ben Shapiro tears apart the ten (10) most known pro-choice arguments can be seen here:

March for Life in Washington – 2019

Thousands of anti-abortion demonstrators  marched in the nation’s capitol Friday to protest abortion in the United States.  Among the protesters are more than 500 Michigan people, mainly students, from West Michigan, and as the video shows three buses from the downriver area.

We took the bus organized by Joe Connors of Southern Downriver Right to Life.  Students from Gabriel Richard High School and St. Frances Cabrini High School along with some adults filled three buses.  We drove overnight Thursday and met others, including the Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist at the Ohio Turnpike rest stop.  Some of us attended the 7:30 am Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.  The students and teachers attended the Youth Rally and Mass at the Capital One Arena while others attended the Pro-Life Exhibition at the Renaissance Hotel.  Everyone then attended the March for Life Rally on the National Mall which was followed by the two hour March for Life up Constitution Avenue, around the Capitol building and finishing at the Supreme Court.  Estimates were that 400,000 peaceful, joyful, prayerful people of all ages participated to bring attention to the need to end the killing of children in the womb to protect the babies and the mothers.  Following the March, many women at a podium in front of the Supreme Court were Silent No More and woman after woman told the story of her personal tragedy and recovery after abortion declaring that she wants no more babies to die and mothers to suffer, so she is “Silent No More!”

Chris Gast, communications and education director for Right to Life Michigan, told 24 Hour News 8, “We have 18 buses from all around Michigan going to the March for Life in Washington D.C.”

According to Focus on the Family:

“One of the big reasons people are turning toward a more pro-life perspective can be summed up in a single word: Technology

Recent polls indicate people across generations want to see fewer abortions. Among those in the 18-29 age range, one such poll said the view that abortion should be “illegal in all circumstances” has gone up 9 percentage points — from 14 to 23 percent — since the early ’90s….

Kristan Hawkins, Executive Director of Students for Life of America, says as ultrasound technology becomes more widely available, it’s making a difference in how young people view the issue of life. In fact, the younger generation has never been as pro-life as it is today.”

 

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

20190112_160755
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 www.ProLifeMichigan.org 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,
Anna
