MICHIGAN Petition Drive to End Dismemberment Abortion Procedure

Volunteers around the state are collecting signatures to end this barbaric procedure in Michigan!  DETAILS

Michigan Catholic Conference SUPPORTS Michigan Values Life:  End Dismemberment Abortion.  MCC DOES NOT SUPPORT:  Michigan Heartbeat Coalition.   The reasons are explained in their MCC 2019 Petition Initiative Position Statements.

WILL YOU HELP?

An opportunity is before Michigan citizens. By working together, we can ban the inhumane abortion procedure known as the D&E or dilation and evacuation method. This method of abortion uses surgical instruments to forcibly remove arms and legs from a living human being in the womb.

Banning Dismemberment Abortions in Michigan

Clearing Up Confusion About Heartbeat vs. Dismemberment Bans in Michigan


On their website and in conversations with many, we’ve heard that the Heartbeat Coalition is misleading people about Right to Life of Michigan’s dismemberment abortion ban, telling people it will not save lives. The Heartbeat Coalition says the heartbeat ban they are working on with their own petition drive will save lives in Michigan. That’s not accurate.

Here’s a what you need to know about Michigan...

Analyzing the Heartbeat Coalition’s ACLJ Brief

What is a Dismemberment Abortion?

Does it occur in Michigan?
Yes it does...sadly there were 1,777 in 2017.  
That's 5 every day just in Michigan.

Former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino is the host of a series of videos that feature animated portrayals of the most common abortion methods. 

Watch this video to learn how a dismemberment abortion is done, also called a dilation and evacuation abortion (D&E).

Safe Delivery of Newborns in Michigan
The MI "Safe Haven Law" has been in place since 2001.

Safe Delivery allows parents to safely surrender their newborn child no more than 72 hours old to an employee who is inside and on duty at any hospital, fire department, police station, or by calling 9-1-1. This program is a safe, legal and anonymous alternative to abandonment or infanticide and releases the newborn for placement with an adoptive family.  Safe Delivery Hotline: 1-866-733-7733.  

This poster and brochure with the telephone number of the Safe Delivery Hotline are available from the State of Michigan Department of Human Services.   Publications and forms can be downloaded from the internet and copied, or can be ordered free of charge by calling the Office Services Division at 517-373-7837, or faxing this order form to 517-335-4017.  

Are abortions 3% of what Planned Parenthood does?
NATIONAL CANDLELIGHT VIGIL

National Candlelight Vigil - Saturday, April 13, 2019 

 #ProtestPP coalition organized simultaneous candlelight vigils throughout the United States at hundreds of Planned Parenthood facilities.  

Planned Parenthood is the  nation’s largest abortion chain.  

In MUSKEGON nearly 200 people joined us to pray in front of Planned Parenthood, 

located in the Muskegon County Health Department building - 209 E. Apple Avenue.   

Thank you for praying with us! 

President Trump to divert Title X funding from Planned Parenthood
On May 18 President Trump announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Department will be introducing a policy that will remove Title X family planning tax funding from health-care providers that perform or refer women for abortions, shifting it to providers that don't. Known as the "Protect Life Rule," this policy is very similar to a Reagan-era rules that have already survived a court challenge and were upheld in 1991 by the U.S. Supreme Court. This policy demonstrates the commitment of the Trump Administration to end tax-funding of abortion providers.
 FULL STORY
Contrasting life and death

"RIGHT TO TRY" LAW

President Trump has signed into law the “Right to Try” bill that will allow those with potentially terminal diseases to try experimental treatments and bypass the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.  

“Thousands of terminally ill Americans will have the help, the hope and the fighting chance that they will be cured, that they will be helped, that they will be able to be with their families for a long time, or maybe just for a longer time,” President Trump said. “But we’re able to give them the absolute best we have at this current moment, at this current second. We’re going to help a lot of people. It’s an honor to be signing this.”

Patients with terminal conditions will have access to experimental treatments that could potentially save their lives.   "Right to Try" gives thousands of terminally ill Americans help, hope and a fighting chance, so much more compassionate than the push for "Physician Assisted Suicide". Life is precious, treasure every day.We are thankful that Americans will have the “Right to Try”!    Thank you President Trump!

 

Euthanasia and doctor-prescribed suicide are difficult issues. They are often presented as compassionate and responsible ways to respect the autonomy of suffering patients. In practice, however, they end up harming vulnerable people. Euthanasia and doctor-prescribed suicide end up being cheap, quick, and easy alternatives to doing what we should to care for those in need.

 ASSISTED SUICIDE

Trump Administration's New Rules are Prolife Victories

UPDATE 2-22-2019  GREAT NEWS!

The Trump administration has finalized the Protect Life Rule, which would redirect $60 million taxpayer dollars AWAY from abortion giant Planned Parenthood to non-abortion clinics.  This is a crucial step in the right direction!  

The Trump Administration’s Department of Health and Human Services released its final rule change on Title X, the federal family planning program.  The new rule requires a “clear financial and physical separation between Title X funded projects and programs or facilities where abortion is a method of family planning.” 

This would mean that in order for Planned Parenthood to receive its usual $60 million annually in Title X funding, it would need to separate its abortion business from its other services, financially and physically (120 days to comply financially, and one year to comply physically). Planned Parenthood’s facilities are all housed under the same roof, so to speak, which means that any funds going toward Planned Parenthood for birth control services are also serving to keep its abortion business functioning ,due to fungibility.

November 7, 2018

The Trump Administration's Department of Health and Human Services announced a prolife victory: two new rules were established regarding abortion coverage in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

The first rule affects taxpayer funding of insurance plans that cover elective abortions, requiring people who want insurance coverage of abortion to pay for it themselves. The change is similar to our 2013 Abortion Insurance Opt-Out Act in Michigan.

The second rule finalizes changes to the HHS Contraceptives Mandate, making it essentially optional. Both Hobby Lobby and the Little Sisters of the Poor won their cases at the U.S. Supreme Court, and the Trump Administration followed through on promises to protect their conscience rights.  Read More

How are abortions done?
The prolife group Live Action have released videos detailing how abortion procedures are performed as well as an interview with Dr. Anthony Levatino, a former abortionist who performed over 1,200 abortions.

These videos are very informational and show video illustrations of the abortion procedure while Dr. Levatino explains it. These videos are featured on AbortionProcedures.com and Dr. Levatino explains a D&E (Dilation and Evacuation) abortion, aspiration abortion, the abortion pill, and induction abortion. He also answers questions regarding his work as an abortionist.

Many women aren't aware of what takes place during an abortion procedure and view it as an easy solution. However, with 31 million views more and more people are realizing how violent abortions are and that they aren't an easy, painless solution. People have commented on the abortion procedure videos saying that they have made them rethink abortion.

We encourage you to view these videos, learn more about the abortion procedure and share them with your friends and family. Too often the abortion industry hides behind the truth, but now we have the chance to expose the truth to others!

Sex Abuse Cover Up at Planned Parenthood

 Through the 'Time's Up' and 'Me Too' movements, America is calling for an end to sexual abuse in every institution.  But few are calling out one of America’s biggest accomplices to sexual abuse, even though there is widespread documentation of decades-long systemic sexual abuse cover up behind its doors.  The group is Planned Parenthood and they are tax funded. Planned Parenthood claims that sexual assault victims come to their facilities on a daily basis.  Live Action’s video exposed how Planned Parenthood treats these victims, consistently and deliberately failing to report their abuse and even making a profit doing so.  

EXPOSED: PLANNED PARENTHOOD’S COVER-UP OF CHILD SEX ABUSE

Is abortion ever medically necessary?
 Former abortionist, Dr. Anthony Levatino, responds regarding the medical necessity of abortion.
Planned Parenthood Downplays Commitment to Abortion

Defenders of Planned Parenthood often claim abortion is an insignificant part of their business, 3% of their services.  An RLM Blog post highlights a video explaining how Planned Parenthood uses deceiving figures to distract people from the fact that they are the leading provider and promoter of abortion in the United States.

See the video

Abby Johnson, who ran a Planned Parenthood clinic in Bryan, Texas, before leaving in 2009, provided a copy of the Facility Budget for the clinic for fiscal year 2010. It's interesting to see how the services provided by Planned Parenthood appear in this budget.  This video, "Abortion Should be Safe, Legal and Rare",  is short, to the point and worth the time to watch.

Planned Parenthood Videos

UPDATE:  January 18 2019...The Fifth Circuit explicitly found in their ruling that the Center for Medical Progress’ videos are authentic And could be relied upon by Texas and by others as the regulatory and other enforcement proceedings.

A series of undercover videos released by David Daleiden, Center for Medical Progress, show Planned Parenthood staff discussing how Planned Parenthood affiliates sell the body parts of aborted children and change abortion procedures to ensure the requested organs remain intact. The videos show the crass treatment of human life as resources to be exploited in the abortion industry.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD VIDEOS

PLANNED PARENTHOOD: THE TAX-FUNDED NON-PROFIT POLITICAL ABORTION PROVIDER AND PROMOTER

 

For many, Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) is a trusted name in affordable reproductive health care. PPFA would like to keep that standing for the hundreds of centers they operate. They would also like to remain the largest provider and promoter of abortion in the United States. To reach both goals, PPFA must distort the truth and provide misleading information to women who are experiencing an unexpected pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America Quick Facts

The abortion numbers many refuse to confront

More than crime. More than accidents. More than cancerheart disease and AIDSAbortion has taken more Black American lives than every other cause of death combined since 1973. In the United States, the abortion rate for Black women is almost 4 times that of White women. On average, 900 Black babies are aborted every day in the United States. This tragedy continues to impact the population levels of African Americans in the United States.
