Save the Hyde Amendment

The Hyde Amendment currently protects Americans from being forced to directly fund abortions using taxpayer money, but it has come under severe attack by this president and pro-abortion leaders who are actively pursuing its repeal. More information on the Hyde Amendment can be found in Save Hyde Statewide document. Take action and contact your legislators today. It is so important we let our voices be heard. Do your part to protect our God-given right to life for all human life–born and unborn.

Right to Life of Michigan has set up a page which gives you the opportunity to contact your legislators and public officials regarding current events and proposed legislation. Click on this link to let your legislators know you support the Hyde Amendment and oppose being forced to pay for abortions with your tax dollars. 

What good are rights………without the right to life?

This campaign is a focused, 40-day, non-stop, around-the-clock prayer vigil outside a Planned Parenthood center or other abortion facility in our community. It is a peaceful, educational presence and sends a powerful message about the tragic reality of abortion. Help save lives in our community by praying for an end to abortion.  Please watch our website for more information on our Fall 2022 campaign.

Destroying our Future – Abortion’s Cost to our Economy

Children are our future. By destroying almost a third of the next generation, we are destroying our own future. Please read Right to Life of Michigan’s flyer, “Destroying our Future – Abortion’s Cost to our Economy” for how abortion has impacted our society.  

                                                                      Abortion is America’s Holocaust.

 

See these Movies on Us!

Bay County Right to Life recently purchased several copies of the “Roe v. Wade” movie and donated them to All Saints High School and to our local Libraries. Check out this video to view yourself or with family and friends to find out what really happened when this case was decided in 1973 by the Supreme Court and became the national law of our land.

The movie also highlights the importance of the 40 Days for Life Campaign. Call Bay County RTL at (989) 895-8481 or email us at baycountyrtl@gmail.com if you are interested.

Interview With An Unborn Child

Stand for Life
