About Us

Who We Are2015-04-19_21-21-15

We are one of more than 100 Right to Life of Michigan affiliates representing the local citizens within our community.

We are convinced that death is not a solution to suffering or hardship. Together we are working for the day when positive life-affirming solutions are found for difficult situations at both the beginning and end of life.

We are a non-profit volunteer organization made up of people of different political persuasions, various faiths and diverse economic, social and ethnic backgrounds.

We work peacefully to advance our identified life issues. We oppose illegal and violent means to achieve our goals. To counter violence with violence is against our principles.

What We Do

EDUCATION

We, as an affiliate of Right to Life of Michigan, provide factual information on the topics of abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia to help educate our local citizens on life issues relevant today.

LEGISLATIVE ACTION

We participate in the legislative process so that laws are passed on behalf of defenseless and vulnerable human beings—born  and unborn.

POLITICAL ACTION

We are involved in the political arena so that we can elect officials who will protect innocent members of our human family.

A Civil Rights Issue

At each point in history when mass groups of the vulnerable were threatened, someone stood up and stood firm against it.

Today, even up to the time of birth, unborn babies have no right to life. Each year, more than a million children are killed by abortion.

Our work is part of a coordinated effort with Right to Life of Michigan. We are the voice, hands and feet for babies preparing to be born and those threatened by a quality of life ethic.

Right to Life groups have formed in every state to restore legal protection for unborn children under the U.S. Constitution. This is, without a doubt, the most important civil rights issue of our time. Together we will stand up and stand firm for the protection of innocent human life.
