Thank you to Jackie Martin for the June 29 article regarding the Supreme Court decision of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization which overturned the 1973 decision of Roe v. Wade, which had effectively made abortion legal in the U.S. for all nine months of pregnancy for any reason.
I am grateful for the quotations in response to that decision of so many of our Downriver elected officials. These Democrats (U.S. Reps. Debbie Dingell and Rashida Tlaib, state Rep. Darrin Camilleri, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer) can no longer hide behind a rhetoric of vague compassion. Their words tell clearly that they are in favor of allowing and encouraging through the power of government, the annual slaughter of nearly 1 million babies in the womb. These children, the future of our country, are being murdered daily for their crime of being inconvenient, the wrong sex, or imperfect.
This November, we voters have the responsibility to replace these legislators by electing candidates who will defend the weakest members of society. Only the Republican party platform of 2016, reissued in 202,0 reiterates the Declaration of Independence that declares the inalienable right to life as well as the need to strengthen families of a mother and father with their natural children as the means to give more children a path to success which in turn strengthens our country.
In that same issue of The News-Herald, columnist Craig Farrand expressed his flawed opinion and disappointment at the SCOTUS decision. He touts the core foundations of “personal freedoms, privacy, a separation of church and state, limits to government intrusion and, ultimately, the right to live your life as you see fit – as long as your beliefs don’t translate into actions that inflict themselves on anyone else.” But that’s the flaw because abortion is an action that directly kills the unborn child, a separate person from the mother.
I was most offended by his flawed analysis when he claims that three justices were illegitimate appointments because he did not consider President Trump to have been properly elected. Following the wisdom of the Constitution and election laws governing our republic, Donald Trump was duly and legally elected. There is no reason to continue the sour grapes attitude and disrespect of our former president.
I do agree with Mr. Farrand that we should “elect people at the national and state levels who will defend … the rights of minorities, the weak and those in need.” Unborn babies and their mothers certainly fall into that category.
The people of Michigan have a long history of defending a culture of life.
• 1846 – Michigan law banned abortion
• 1931 – When the Michigan legal code was updated, the 1846 law was unchanged
• 1972 – Ballot proposal that would have legalized abortion was defeated 61% to 39% (This was invalidated by the Roe v. Wade decision of Jan. 22, 1973.)
• 1988 – Through a petition drive and vote of 57% to 43%, a ban on tax-funded Medicaid abortions was enacted
• 1998 – Vote of 71% to 29% made assisted suicide illegal
• 2013 – A successful petition drive for initiated legislation eliminated (Obamacare) mandated abortion coverage in health insurance plans
There are 150 pregnancy help centers in Michigan (1-800-57-WOMAN) with four of them Downriver. They offer material help and various levels of medical help and support for mothers and families in need. They are prepared to expand their services to help more mothers during pregnancy and after their baby’s birth.
In 1980, the Democrat party made the choice not to defend the lives of the unborn. Although Downriver has long been a Democrat stronghold, it is time to change that for the most foundational issue of justice in our time. We can debate policy, taxes, how to fund the roads and other issues, but protecting human life is nonnegotiable.
During the ratification process of the U.S. Constitution, George Washington wrote the following which is still good advice:
“No one can rejoice more than I do at every step taken by the People of this great Country to preserve the Union — establish good order & government — and to render the Nation happy at home & respected abroad. No Country upon Earth ever had it more in its power to attain these blessings than United America. Wonderously strange then, & much to be regretted indeed would it be, were we to neglect the means, and to stray from the road to which the finger of Providence has so manifestly pointed. I cannot believe it will ever come to pass! The great Author of all good has not conducted us so far on the Road to happiness and glory to withdraw from us, in the hour of need, his beneficent support. By folly & misconduct (proceeding from a variety of causes) we may now & then get bewildered; but I hope, and trust, that there is good sense and virtue enough left to bring us back into the right way before we shall be entirely lost.”
We will continue to pray and work to defend the lives of the innocent babies in the womb who have no voice.

The numbers are not out yet as to the approximate amount of people who attended the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children in the various locations around the country, but I know if the turn out was as good as the one I attended, it had to be not just a huge success, but a Blessing for all who took part in it and/or attended.
National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children is a joint project of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life, and the Pro-Life Action League. (The aborted babies buried at Assumption Grotto were killed at Women’s Advisory Clinic, Trimester II, Novi Physician Center, and other Michigan abortion clinics now closed) The services at the Assumption Grotto Church and Cemetery was hosted by:
The Greeting and Welcome was presented by Ellen Salter, Opening prayer by Rev. Edward Perrone, The Michigan Chamber Chorale sang “Your Great Faithfulness”, “How Great Thou Art”, “Amazing Grace” and “Onward Christian Soldier”. The procession to the cemetery was led b y the Knights of Columbus, Scripture read by Mark Gade, Head Elder of Christ the King Lutheran, Meghan’s Miracles by Ellen Salter, Prolife Speaker, Scripture by Mark Gade, Reflection by Pastor Randy Boelter of Christ the King Lutheran, Student Orator was Shannon Salter, and speech by Susan Stockman, Past Director of the Pregnancy Aid, Prayers of the Faithful by NDR-Detroit Team, Thank you and invitation to fellowship by EllenSalter, and Closing prayer by Rev.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS NOW TO FIND A MEMORIAL SERVICE NEAR YOU ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, OR HOW TO ARRANGE ONE AT: www.abortionmemorials.com, and there’s plenty of time to plan a memorial service. Several graves of aborted babies still need someone to plan a memorial service and hundreds of Memorial Markers for Aborted Babies where you may hold a service for this Nationwide Event.
Click here to locate a Marker NEAR YOU! http://www.abortionmemorials.com/sites.php
AND Captains are still needed for the following gravesites for aborted children. So far no one has stepped forward to plan a service for these babies:
Watch this 5 minute video “Requiem for the Disappeared” – on the burials of the aborted unborn! And you’ll be inspired to plan a memorial service for the victims of abortion:
In case you were earlier not aware, the Satanic Temple of Detroit is still planning to unveil their satanic statue somewhere in Detroit in July (they are not revealing where and when). They originally were planning to do so in Eastern Market on July 25 but have now cancelled due to loud protests.
On Saturday, July 25 (Feast of St. James, Apostle), our St. Joseph Church in Detroit will offer a 10 AM Mass of Reparation followed by a 11 AM Eucharistic Holy Hour for the City of Detroit. The information flyer can be downloaded and printed from here:
The Facebook Event Page is here:
If you are able to, please attend this special Mass and Holy Hour to pray for our city and country! Also, if you are able to, please send and share this information with all of your family members and friends! Let us hope and pray for a big turnout!
Excerpts from LifeNews.com: “The Planned Parenthood abortion business today celebrated the defeat of pro-life legislation in Louisiana that would ban killing girls (or boys) in sex-selection abortions.
After research has shown that the practice of sex-selection abortion has made its way from Asian nations to the United States, pro-life advocates are moving forward with legislation to ban sex-selection abortions that target girl babies.
HB 701, the legislation aimed at preventing sex-selective abortion in Louisiana, was stalled today by a 2-2 vote in the State Senate Judiciary B Committee. Senators J.P. Morrell and Karen Carter Peterson voted against the bill, and Senators Norby Chabert and Eric Lafleur voted in favor of the bill.
After the vote, the nation’s biggest abortion company applauded what it hailed as the defeat of the pro-life legislation…….
This isn’t the first time Planned Parenthood has been on record supporting sex-selection abortions. Last year, in a letter to members of the California state legislature, the abortion giant opposed another ban on sex-selection abortions.”
If you are pro-life and want to read the entire article, please click on:
Which is it? According to Planned Parenthood and pro-choice, the fetus is not a HUMAN baby despite the fact that at the time of conception the sperm merges its 23 HUMAN chromosomes into the egg which has the other 23 HUMAN chromosomes and together this forms a HUMAN being, a BABY. Even once a sex is determined (girl vs. boy), they obviously still don’t consider the fetus being a human child. In my way of thinking, they can’t have it both ways. No other species has our 46 chromosomes and from the moment of conception these chromosomes will determine not only the sex, the eye color, the hair color, and all other attributes of a HUMAN being. Where does it stop? Maybe the agenda of their idol, Margaret Sanger, is still their ultimate goal! Don’t want a baby – just kill it! Don’t want a particular gender – just kill it? Don’t want a particular race – just kill it! Don’t want a baby with blond hair – just kill it! Don’t want a baby who isn’t perfect – just kill it!
The definition of “EXTERMINATION” begins, and quickly becomes the mass killing legally called “genocide”. It is “extermination” to the killers because they do not believe their victims to be fully human. Read the page on this site about “Margaret Sanger” and then tell me how her agenda is NOT the agenda of Planned Parenthood.
