Please Sign the Online Petition Regarding the Abortion Pill

The current Food and Drug Administration has paved the way for certain pharmacies to dispense Mifepristone, the abortion pill. Right to Life of Michigan has decided to initiate a petition that will go to CVS, Walgreens and any other pharmacy that has decided to provide Mifepristone, encouraging them NOT to do so.

We need as many signatures as possible to make a strong statement to these pharmacies. Help limit the expansion of pharmacies dispensing this dangerous drug in our communities by signing the online petition below. 

Please view this link and sign it immediately. Also, post it to your social media accounts and share it with your friends and families.

New “Blessing Bag” Project

BCRTL has partnered with our sister affiliates Saginaw and Midland to create Blessing Bags to be used by our Sidewalk counselors in front of the local Women’s Health Clinic in Saginaw. The response has been overwhelming from the counselors and the women who will stop to get a free bag. Mom # 1 took a blessing bag; unfortunately, she took the pill on Friday, and the baby is probably already passed. The counselor gave her the bag and a local high-risk doctor’s number. Rachel Vineyard information was also in the bag; hopefully she will seek that healing ministry. Blessing bag #2, mom and young daughter pulled over to talk and get a bag. Discussed adoption along with Life Clinic. Came back about an hour later and changed their mind to keep the baby. Mom #3 considered abortion and shrugged off the counselor until he handed her a Blessing bag. She saw a fetal model in the bag and listened to the negative aspects of abortion. Mom and Dad #4 took a bag, exchanged numbers with the counselor, and are planning on keeping the baby. These are just a few of the blessings that have occurred. If you are interested in being part of this ministry, please contact BCRTL by calling (989) 895-8481 or emailing us at

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.
