People of Life

POL Flyer19-page-001

Our People of Life Benefit Reception is coming up on Thursday, May 2.  People of Life is RLM’s annual fundraising dinner in support of outreach to the Black community.  This is the last year that we’ll be able to have the dinner at the Edison Boat Club in Detroit as it will be closing – which is a shame because the food there is always so great.

Since Upper Downriver RTL is near the Detroit area, you can be one of our powerful allies in outreach to the Black community and to the city of Detroit.  I’m hoping you’ll help us get the word out and invite people to join us.  Reservations are coming in slowly and we want to fill the room to hear Christina Bennett’s amazing story.  You can view all information and register here:

Truth about Ilhan Omar

ilhan-koran

(Ilhan Omar being sworn into office with Koran)

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders joins Interfaith Leaders at the Islamic Center of Southern California, Los Angeles.  The question one wonders is if Senator Sanders is really naive enough to believe what he is saying while putting himself center stage of a radical terrorists organization like CAIR, who would just as soon see this infidel dead then actually speaking, but hey, one way to come through the back door via the Muslim Brotherhood is by keeping the attention on the front door trying to look like they are an open minded, peaceful organization.

CAIR’s members chanting “We are HAMAS. We are Jihad” in a video of  Director, Hassan Shibly’s CAIR’s Florida group sponsoring a pro HAMAS rally in Miami.

The FBI has allegedly cut ties to CAIR after the Holy Land Foundation trial during which CAIR was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator along with its co-founder Omar Achmad as supporters of the terrorist group HAMAS.

CAIR was listed as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in November, 2014, saying the group is “linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, promotes extremism, and incites and finances terrorism.”

Ilhan Omar will deliver her address alongside CAIR’s Florida Director Hassan Shibly.  According to a CAIR flier promoting the event, Shibly is a dedicated Islamist and bigoted gay basher. A fan of radical clerics, he has routinely refused to categorize U.S. designated terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist organizations, according to the Clarion Project.

Activists are concerned by Omar’s decision to raise money for various Islamist groups, some of which have been tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, and others labeled designated as terrorist-linked by some foreign governments.  She has generated a lot of condemnation and attention with her anti-Semitic remarks since and before taking office causing a lot of problems inside of congress with those who have a problem with her outspoken hatred and discrimination, while others are apparently scared to speak up as being seen as traitors to their party.

According to Pamela Gellar, an expert on Islam and Muslim terrorists, “Omar is a 35-year-old mother of three and is America’s first elected Somali representative. She is a hijab-wearing Muslim who supports Shari Law, and who entered the United States as a Somali child refugee. Omar never officially held a certification in any government office, but that hasn’t stopped her from being one of the three most loudly heard freshmen in congress, spewing their radical views on the public.

One has to shutter at her attempt in adding her name to the statement, “Today is historic on many fronts. It’s the first time we have voted on a resolution condemning Anti-Muslim bigotry in our nation’s history….We are tremendously proud to be part of a body that has put forth a condemnation of all forms of bigotry including anti-Semitism, racism, and white supremacy”, which is in direct contradiction to her affiliates and ties to various terrorists organizations, along with her recent public hate speech toward non-Muslims.

The democratic leaders in Minnesota were perplexed on advancing a bill banning the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation, stating,  “The bill’s GOP sponsor and colleagues in the Senate have gone wishy-washy on the bill due to pushback from certain segments of the refugee-resettlement industry, which is very powerful in Minnesota, getting paid millions in federal dollars annually to distribute Somali refugees throughout the state.”

After legal battles between the Somali and democratic leaders in Minnesota and those in Michigan concerning  people from Somali bringing their little girls to a suburb of Detroit for the female genial mutilation surgery, the push back from the democrats and Shari loving leadership of both states closed the cases against the doctors who were performing the surgeries, and it was determined in Minnesota that instead of taking the children away from their families or sending the parents to jail, the use of public tax dollars were better used to try to “educate” the population on why it is wrong to mutilate their daughters’ genitalia, somehow neglecting to forget that this is called for by  Sharia Law and that is something that a lot of Muslims will not go against.

A Centers for Disease Control study from last year estimates that 513,000 U.S. girls and women are at risk of having their genitals mutilated and so far it appears people like Ilham Omar and her counterparts are winning.

 

Tolton – From Slave to Priest

The newest St. Luke Production live one man, multi-media drama about the first Black Catholic priest in the United States is coming to Detroit and Southgate, Michigan.  Please share the message!  

Tickets available at ToltonDetroit.eventbrite.com

St. Luke Production says, “Martha Tolton was a Missouri slave and a mother, who knew there was only one way to save her family – she had to escape to freedom in Illinois. In the dead of night, she slipped away. It was twenty miles to the Missouri – Illinois border. On the other side lay freedom, but she had to get there first, and that meant crossing the vast Mississippi River. Terrified, she prayed for a miracle, and sure enough, God provided. When reached the river, she found a dilapidated row boat and, with bullets from angry Confederate soldiers whizzing by her ears, she rowed to freedom. Now, more than 150 years later, we know God had a mission for this heroic mother. Through Martha Tolton’s courage, determination, and most of all through her devout Catholic faith, the first African American priest, Father Augustus Tolton, was given to the people of God. His story is amazing and inspiring, and we need to hear it. Tolton will have a powerful impact of healing in our country and all over the world, drawing ALL people to the truth of Jesus Christ. Like Mama Tolton crossing the Mississippi in a leaky boat in the middle of the night, let’s trust in God, and take a risk. Let’s cross that river, and bring freedom to souls through the Truth of Jesus Christ. It’s worth it.”

 

HEAR THE STORY OF STELLA DALLOS, A HEALTHY YOUNG GIRL BORN DURING THE 23RD WEEK OF PREGNANCY.

BabySuckingThumb

We have been invited by Southern Downriver Right to Life to join them at their Annual Meeting on March 20, 2019 at 7:00 P.M.

Have you ever wondered  what the feet of a premature baby that is born at the 23rd week of pregnancy look like?  My daughter-in-law, a neo-natal nurse, shared the attached picture of the footprints of a baby girl born at 23 weeks who she took care of during her first few weeks of life at the Medical Center of South Carolina.  The little girl weighed less than one pound at birth.  Pretty amazing, isn’t it?

23 week feet-2, 9-10-17

The beauty of this little girl’s birth is in stark contrast to the recent passage of New York’s Reproductive Health Act in January legalizing abortion for any reason right up to the moment of delivery, and the governor of Virginia, a pediatric neurosurgeon, discussing on the radio the possibility of legislation allowing a newborn infant with viability or other issues to be allowed to die after delivery with the consent of her parents.

That’s why I want TO INVITE YOU to Southern Downriver Right to Life’s (SDRTL) Annual Meeting on WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20 AT 7:00PM, and hear the AMAZING STORY OF STELLA DALLOS, A HEALTHY YOUNG GIRL FROM OUR OWN DOWNRIVER AREA WHO WAS BORN DURING THE 23RD WEEK OF PREGNANCY.

Jim Dallos’s heartwarming story of his daughter’s birth will set the stage for our renewed efforts, as a local affiliate of Right to Life of Michigan, to limit late term abortions in our state. We will also be electing a new Board and Officers for SDRTL, and we will outline the rest of our activities and plans for the balance of 2019.

We made some good progress in promoting a Culture of Life in both Michigan and Downriver in 2018, but we now have a strongly Pro-Abortion Governor & Pro-Abortion Attorney General who will stop at nothing to promote a Pro-Death agenda  similar to what just became law in New York.

 We can’t let that happen here. Unborn children just like Stella need your help in 2019.

Come and hear Stella’s story.  It is truly amazing, and it is almost too beautiful to be true…. but it is.

“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.
