This campaign is a focused, 40-day, non-stop, round-the-clock prayer vigil outside a Planned Parenthood center or other abortion facility in our community. It is a peaceful and 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 from September 22 to October 31. Check the 40 Days for Life flyer for location, times, and how to take part in this worldwide mobilization!

The first Sunday in October is Life Chain Sunday – October 3, 2021. It is a time to stand in peaceful, prayerful public witness alongside other pro-life believers. See the Life Chain Flyer for details on participating in this event with us. For more info about this national organization and how it has been mobilizing this prayer movement since 1987, go to the site here: Life Chain.

Annual Cross Display of Michigan Abortions

The display of crosses will be set up at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church located at 6904 Westside Saginaw Road on October 2nd beginning at 10 a.m. This visual display commemorates the loss of Michigan’s preborn children to a brutal death by abortion. Please join us to remember the loss of these innocent lives.  

Defend and Save the Hyde Amendment

The Hyde Amendment currently protects Americans from being forced to directly fund abortions through federal tax dollars, but the Biden Administration is actively pursuing its rapid repeal. While the Hyde Amendment was supported by 57% of voters and opposed by 36% as of 2016, it has come under severe attack by this administration.

Right to Life of Michigan has set up a page which offers 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. Please — defend the Hyde Amendment and do your part to protect our God-given right to life.

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

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.

Interview With An Unborn Child

Stand for Life

We wrestle not with people or organizations but with an ideology that embraces human life as ultimately worthless and expendable. We know the face of abortion is the innocent child, created in God’s image with infinite worth. Irreplaceable. Individual. Invaluable. We appreciate you who stand with us!
