Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness

index

Join us on Saturday, October 13 – Pregnancy and Infant Loss Walk at 1:00 pm at Our Lady of Hope Cemetery, 18303 Allen Road (just south of Pennsylvania).

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month was first declared by President Ronald Reagan on October 15, 1988.  On that day he said:

“When a child loses his parent, they are called an orphan. When a spouse loses her or his partner, they are called a widow or widower. When parents lose their child, there isn’t a word to describe them. This month recognizes the loss so many parents experience across the United States and around the world. It is also meant to inform and provide resources for parents who have lost children due to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, stillbirths, birth defects, SIDS, and other causes.

Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim the month of October as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. I call upon the people of the United States to observe this month with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities.”

IMMEDIATE ATTENTION NEEDED TO DETERMINE THE FATE OF JUDGE KAVANAUGH

mail

Fellow American,

Last week, the Senate concluded a week of confirmation hearings to determine the fate of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination as an Associate Justice to the Supreme Court of the United States of America.

But special interest groups have been working to block his confirmation. In fact, their obstructionist efforts started before President Trump’s nominee was even announced!

The fact is that the confirmation hearings represented only the beginning of the decision process for the many “swing votes” up for grabs across both the Republican and Democratic members of the Senate. A story posted on the Politico website confirmed that the first committee vote is scheduled to happen this week, and it is expected to be made along party lines.

We MUST fight back while there’s still time to win this battle.

But here is the thing: The Senate only takes action when compelled by the overwhelming voice of their constituency.

That is why, in addition to knocking on over 100,000 doors, making over 350,000 phone calls, and meeting individually with key Senators, Americans for Prosperity is working to get over 1 million signatures on an Open Letter urging the swift confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh.

When we can show Senators on both sides of the aisle that hundreds of thousands of their own constituents want them to confirm a pro-Constitution nominee, it is impossible for them not to take action.

Today, I’d like to ask you to make your voice heard; please sign this Open Letter to the Senate today.

Thank You
– Tim

Right to Life of Michigan Endorsed Candidates

index

Please check out the RTL of Michigan (for people outside of Michigan, please refer to the RTL center in your state) site for election endorsements.  Statistics from the Pew Research Center and the United States Census Bureau, are showing that the pro-choice side of the isle is outweighing the pro-life side in registering and getting out to vote in the primaries.  Please share these facts with your friends and family.  Post the info on your Facebook, Twitter, or personal blogs, and ask your friends to do the same.  The Resource Center at 2010 Eureka,  Wyandotte (inside the small mall at 20th and Eureka) has some great flyers to pass out or to use, itemizing the various views of the candidates on:

  • Views on the Right to Life
  • Views on Coercive Abortion
  • Views on Tax Dollars for Abortion
  • Their voting records
  • Endorsements
  • Euthanasia/Doctor-Prescribed Suicide
  • Confirming Justices
  • Their Supporters

We watched the dirty tricks of deceit, delay and destroy at Judge Kavanaugh’s Hearing yesterday and chances are things are going to even get worse the closer we get to the election.  It is time to stop the insanity, the violence, and the destructive path that the left is leading us into, and the BEST WAY TO DO THAT IS TO GET OUT AND VOTE!!!!

According to the United States Census Bureau, In 2016, 61.4 percent of the citizen voting-age population reported voting, a number not statistically different from the 61.8 percent who reported voting in 2012. Voting rates have historically varied by race and Hispanic origin, and In 2012, voting rates for non-Hispanic blacks (66.6 percent) were higher than non-Hispanic whites (64.1 percent) for the first time since 1980, In 2016, turnout increased to 65.3 percent for non-Hispanic whites, but decreased to 59.6 percent for non-Hispanic blacks, which was only the second election in this series where the share of non-Hispanic black voters decreased, from 12.9 percent in 2012 to 11.9 percent in 2016.

When analyzed together, reported turnout by age, race and Hispanic origin differed in 2016 as well. In comparison to 2012, younger non-Hispanic whites between the ages of 18 to 29 and between the ages of 30 to 44 reported higher turnout in 2016, while voting rates for the two oldest groups of non-Hispanic whites were not statistically different (Figure 5). Meanwhile, for non-Hispanic blacks, turnout rates decreased in 2016 for every age group. For other race non-Hispanics and Hispanics of any race, voting rates between 2012 and 2016 were not statistically different for any age groups.

According to the Pew Research Center, The black voter turnout rate declined for the first time in 20 years in a presidential election, falling to 59.6% in 2016 after reaching a record-high 66.6% in 2012. The 7-percentage-point decline from the previous presidential election is the largest on record for blacks. (It’s also the largest percentage-point decline among any racial or ethnic group since white voter turnout dropped from 70.2% in 1992 to 60.7% in 1996.) The number of black voters also declined, falling by about 765,000 to 16.4 million in 2016, representing a sharp reversal from 2012.

The Latino voter turnout rate held steady at 47.6% in 2016, compared with 48.0% in 2012. the number of Latino voters grew to a record 12.7 million in 2016, up from 11.2 million in 2012. Even so, the number of Latino nonvoters – those eligible to vote who do not cast a ballot, or 14 million in 2016 – was larger than the number of Latino voters, a trend that extends back to each presidential election since 1996. Meanwhile, the Asian voter turnout rate increased to 49.3% in 2016, up from 46.9% in 2012 and surpassing Hispanics for the first time since 1996. Asians continue to represent a smaller share of voters than Hispanics: Overall, about 5 million Asians voted in 2016, up from 3.8 million in 2012.
Americans appear to be more engaged with this year’s midterm elections than they typically are. Not only do about half of registered voters report being more enthusiastic than usual about voting, up from 40% in 2014, but turnout has surged in the 31 states that already have held their congressional primaries – particularly among Democrats.

The total number of votes cast in Democratic House primaries so far this year is 84% higher than the total for the equivalent point in 2014. One reason: There have been a lot more contested primaries, which tend to attract more voters.
Republican turnout in House primaries also has increased, from a combined 8.6 million votes at this point in 2014 (7% of registered voters) to 10.7 million (7.9%) so far this year. But the increase is much smaller (24%) than on the Democratic side, and the total number of votes cast in Democratic House primaries is considerably higher. Overall turnout in U.S. Senate and gubernatorial primaries also is above 2014 levels.

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.

Guadalupe Workers’ September Newsletter

9484 8-05

Guadalupe Workers is a tax deductible 501(c)3 non- profit organization that offers diverse support for mothers with unplanned pregnancies.

Our last letter told you of our ambitions to return two young children, Ernesto and Stephiie, to their mother, who had been detained back in May and deported to Mexico.

Ernesto, when he was a uterine child more than 3 years ago, had been rescued from abortion at the Ann Arbor Planned Parenthood. After securing all necessary paperwork, and after lengthy discussions with those fostering the children here in Monroe and with their mother in Mexico, we departed with the children on August 13. By the grace of God, the trip went very smoothly: we flew into Mexico City, were picked up there and driven 3 hours north to Queretaro, where the children were at last united with their mother, 3 months after separation.

Meanwhile, with the help of connections in Queretaro, we had been helping the mother, Maria, get herself established in a small house on a rancho near Guanajuato. It was, I think, one of the most privileged moments I’ve ever experienced, seeing the reunion of Maria and the children. More than 3 years ago, initially she had accepted Ernesto’s presence with very mixed emotions. Now she took him and his older sister into her arms with complete joy. Happily, upon returning to Mexico City, we were able to deliver a personal word of thanks to she who has done so much for us in the past 15 years–Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe.

Back in Detroit, we are still homeless. Ambitions of purchasing our own office in Detroit were very quickly stifled during the summer months, as donations barely allowed us to keep up with the most critical needs of our mothers and families. Nevertheless, while those ambitions were stifled, they were not extinguished; and we continue from time to time to look at properties, now particularly on the southwest side, hoping God will show a way.

This summer we were able to be at the abortion facilities on the weekdays, with several successes to add to our Guadalupe Family. Just two days ago, I was standing on the McNichols side of Summit, when a man who had been parked farther down the block left his parking space and drove up abreast of me, where he double-parked in the way of traffic, to thank me and shake my hand. Initially, I was a little confused, not knowing why he was thanking me or who he was. He told me, though, that we had saved a life that day, while he also repeated several times that God works in mysterious way. He then pulled away, turned the corner at Forrer, where he was lost to my view. I walked around to the front of the building, where I learned that he had just picked up his girlfriend, who had exited the building upset, but carrying an ultrasound image. Yes, God works in mysterious ways.

There are new stories to tell—and there are old stories which continue. Taneika and Jabbar and their family have been with us for many years. Nine children now. Taneika, though, went through a job transition and Jabbar, for some reason, was cut off from his SSI benefits. And just as Taneika had finished her training and was ready to begin a new job, the front axle of their truck broke. Extensive front end work was needed, utility bills were needed, food was needed…. We’ve been asked many times before why we don’t connect our families with established help agencies, like the Knights of Columbus or Saint Vincent DePaul. Well, we do. We’ve established good working relationships with the mobile ultrasound unit and with the Luke Project, which has provided prenatal care for several of our mothers. And Saint Vincent DePaul on a couple of occasions has assisted with temporary housing. Often, though, the needs of our families require a quick, personal response—which we, by virtue of our small, on-the-road Board, are best able to give.

The newest Guadalupe Workers family members!

Adonys was born 4 months ago! We had the joy to babysit for her mother for a few days. Such a sweet baby!

Coming up on September 29, as I hope you know, we and several co-sponsors are hosting a Michigan Sidewalk Counseling Symposium. As I have striven to clarify on radio interviews, this gathering is not a training session, and is not strictly about sidewalk counseling. Our aim is to explore the simple question, Is there an obligation for the whole Christian community to be at the killing places? We won’t get into discussions of this method or that method, of this strategy or that strategy. For many years we’ve talked about numbers, statistics, a class called the “unborn.” But if our premise is the sanctity of each individual life, shouldn’t we be there for each individual life?

Please go to our website to view a flyer for the event—and PLEASE use your own connections to spread word about the symposium. Several of the national greats of the prolife movement will be there.

Satanic Black Mass Ritual

sa1

According to the web site of the Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art (PhilaMOCA), they will host a Satanic Black Mass Ritual on Friday, October 12.

It will be performed by one of the founders of the Satanic group known as The Satanic Temple, which has rented the mausoleum’s venue to perform the ritual.

Why would PhilaMOCA allow such an event?

Sadly, it’s going ahead.

I pray you will join me in asking Our Lady, St. Michael the Archangel, and all the Angels and Saints to bless our defense of the precious remnants of Christian Civilization in America – so threatened by these black mass rituals.

As a loving member of God’s Church Militant, pray for Heaven’s help, and take action now.

Efforts at mainstreaming satanic worship in America have been going on for a long time.

Apart from private or unadvertised hidden, late-night, impure ‘festivals’ and ‘gatherings’, America Needs Fatima has publicly protested the mainstreaming of Satanism over the years, including:

  • September, 2010…..
    A public black mass in Oklahoma City convention center
  • April, 2014…..
    Legal proceedings to have a Baphomet Idol statue on Oklahoma State grounds
  • October, 2014…..
    Attempt to place Satanic “Coloring Books” in South Florida public school system
  • November, 2014…..
    Setting up a Satanic “Christmas” display in the rotunda of the Florida Statehouse
  • July, 2015…..
    “A night of debauchery” in Detroit at Bert’s Warehouse Theatre and the unveiling of their completed 9’ tall statue of Baphomet
  • December, 2015…..
    A Black Mass and demonic “Consumption of Mary” ceremony in Oklahoma City
At the Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art
  • February, 2016……
    An attempt to begin the Phoenix City Council meeting with a Satanic Prayer Invocation
  • July, 2016……
    Another Black Mass and explanation about it at the Oklahoma Civic Center
  • September, 2016…..
    “After School Satan Clubs” installed in 3 public schools
  • July, 2017……
    Building and setting up a satanic veterans’ memorial with a block of black marble with a pentagram emblazoned on it
  • November, 2017……
    Building and setting up an ugly and chaotic anti-Christmas manger display in the city square of Boca Raton, Florida
  • August, 2018…..
    Transporting and unveiling a Baphomet Idol statue on the State Capitol Grounds in Little Rock, Arkansas
  • October 12, 2018……
    and now a Black Mass Ritual in Philadelphia

…talk about bringing devils into our country!

It’s critical that we too never give up. God Always! Satan Never!

And so a copy of your protest will be sent to Philadelphia Mayor James Kenney and Mr. Eric Bresler, Director/Curator, PhilaMOCA, asking them to cancel this event.

You and I and all God fearing people cannot allow this latest Satanic assault to go by unopposed.

God love you! And Mary be with you!

Quadalupe Workers Need Your Help!

is

The Guadalupe Workers are busy with several tasks–and we really need help!
Firstly, a mother whom we met a few years ago at the Ann Arbor Planned Parenthood was recently deported; her four children, however, were left behind.  Two of those children are older and will remain with their Aunt here in the U.S.  The mother, however, has asked the Guadalupe Workers to bring to her the youngest children, including the child rescued three years ago at the Planned Parenthood.  The paperwork is done and the plane reservations are made.  The trip, though, is leaving a large hole in our bank account, to the amount of about $4,000.  
Secondly, the Workers have begun putting together the first Michigan Sidewalk Counseling Symposium, scheduled for September 29.  This symposium is a cooperative effort with Helpers of God’s Precious Infants, Sidewalk Advocates, and others.  Confirmed speakers include Walter Hoye, Anne Scheidler, David Bereit.  These speakers are requesting only travel expenses in order to be with us on that day; yet, as you know, those expenses can be formidable (Walter and his wife are coming from California).
Thirdly, the Workers are still homeless.  In our last newsletter, we expressed the desire to own our own home in Detroit.  Just keeping up with the mother requests over the summer, though, has kept our account at subsistence  level.  So, we are still homeless, still looking.  Fine tuning the request a bit, specifically what we seek is a larger home (2,000 sq ft) preferably on the southwest side.
Finally, our commitment to being on the sidewalk remains essential to our work.  This summer, we’ve been going out on weekdays, thereby avoiding the escorts.  By God’s grace, we’ve witnessed several turn-a-ways and have gladly accepted some costs in helping these mothers.  
Please help us in any way you can; especially, remember us in prayer when we leave August 13 to return little Ernesto and his sister to their mother.  We are flying into Mexico City but will need to drive north about three hours in order to meet their mother–and I’ve heard horror stories about driving in Mexico! (Though it can’t be worse than Chicago.)

 

Thank you,
Edmund Miller,
President of Guadalupe Workers
