Medical Abortions comprise 22.6% of abortions performed before the ninth week of pregnancy, not an insignificant number. Unlike surgical or suction abortions which immediately kill the baby; medical abortions take longer and therefore can sometimes be reversed. The purpose of this half day conference will increase the participants knowledge of a medical abortion and how the process can be reversed as well as how one can become involved in helping a mother reverse a medical abortion.

Emmanuel Lughermo says, “This is a picture of Karlita with Majesty on the sides of the Luke 52 Project Mobile, 35 foot RV that was delivered last Wednesday. It will be very special to me knowing the city of Detroit and beyond will see her and her baby and I will be driving it.”

According to the National Review, ultrasounds help the pro-life movement persuade previously unreachable individuals. Pro-choice organizations, despite their public denials, understand this, and in fact have conceded the point in lawsuits challenging mandatory ultrasound laws.  Recognizing the power of these images, states are adopting laws requiring doctors to perform an ultrasound before an abortion.

As science and technology make biological reality become apparent to people, America’s abortion regime will become untenable. A mother looking at an ultrasound of her 10 or 12 week child will know that this is no mere clump of cells or tumor as explained to them by abortion mills. The entire horror of a late-term abortion will be obvious to parents who can  see their child in a high-quality video. Once such images are widely distributed, the entire abortion debate is going to change, and has already started.

 

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.

Pope Francis Has Approved the Beatification of Detroit Capuchin Friar Fr. Solanus Casey

At a news conference on May 4, 2017, Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron announced the news that Pope Francis has approved the beatification of Detroit Capuchin Friar, Fr. Solanus Casey, and will be named “blessed”, and has met the requirements sixty years after his death.  Father Casey was the second U.S. born man to achieve such designation, and the first person from Michigan.

Father Solanus Casey’s body was exhumed yesterday, minus the news media.  The casket was in worse shape than his body.  The casket was replaced and his relics were sent to Rome.

It looks as if all 60,000 seats at Ford Field will be needed.  Information about the tickets for his beatification are at:  http://www.themichigancatholic.org/2017/06/fr-solanus-casey-beatified-nov-18-ford-field/.  Tickets can be ordered after August 15.  To receive ceremony details, fill out the form at:  http://solanuscenter.us5.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=03e49d3e6a8b72dec8c041dd9&id=6ac27dda7d

Clinton lies about support for abortion in the debate

6ed60a12-6450-402b-a86d-f6aae8e29263

In the third presidential debate a question about abortion was finally brought up. Hillary Clinton reiterated her total support for the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion-on-demand through all nine months of pregnancy. Donald Trump said he would appoint prolife justices to the U.S. Supreme Court who would overturn Roe v. Wade.

A question was asked about Clinton’s support for the brutal partial-birth abortion (PBA) procedure. Clinton said she supports the procedure because of “women’s health.” There is no legitimate health reason to perform PBAs. PBA takes three days to complete. If a woman is facing an imminent health crisis, a procedure that takes three days to complete is irresponsible.

PBA involves delivering a child until only the head is left in the birth canal. The abortionist then stabs the child in the head using scissors with a curved blade. The scissors are opened, creating a hole in the baby’s skull wide enough to insert a suction catheter to suck out her brains. What health benefit is there to stabbing the baby in the head rather than completing the delivery? Partial-birth abortion is not about women’s health, it’s about making a dead baby.

Clinton lied in two ways about the issue. Trump correctly pointed out that Clinton supports abortions up to the ninth month, even the final day of birth. Trump could have gone farther and correctly explained she supports abortion during the birth process! Clinton responded: “That is not what happens in these cases.” Aborting a baby during birth is obviously what happens in a partial-birth abortion. The name is as self-explanatory as it gets.

Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton also allows abortion through all nine months of pregnancy. Clinton earlier said she strongly supports these decisions. She tried to hide behind the “health exception,” but as the U.S. Supreme Court decided in Doe v. Bolton the same day they handed down Roe v. Wade, “health” means anything: social, psychological, financial. Anything impacts “health” according the court, so “health” means any reason a woman can think of.

Abortion up until the moment of birth, for any reason is the law of the land. If Clinton appoints one more pro-abortion justice to the Supreme Court, it is likely the Court will reaffirm and expand Roe v. Wade, potentially throwing out the ruling in 2007 upholding the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act, bringing that gruesome barbarity back to America, and people could be forced to pay for them with their tax dollars.

We intend to keep it that way

Michigan was a leader in the effort to ban partial-birth abortion. After a couple trips to the court and a massive voter-driven override of a veto by Governor Jennifer Granholm, we finally succeed in Michigan in 2011, 15 years after we began. Your support enables us to keep moving forward, and we will continue until we achieve our end goal of every baby in the womb having legal protection.
