Click on the banner below to learn more what Proposal 3 will do to Michigan’s current legislation and to take action to defeat it.


A committee called Reproductive Freedom for All (RFFA) is working to amend the Michigan Constitution. Led by Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, this committee’s amendment would create a new unlimited and unregulated right to abortion in our state. This radical proposal is not about reproductive freedom, which already exists. This poorly worded amendment would repeal dozens of state laws, including laws unrelated to abortion. It could affect any law related to pregnancy and abortion and does not exempt minor children. Vote NO on proposal 3 this November.  See the flyer for more info.

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 our local Libraries. View this video 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 “Unplanned” shows the true picture of Planned Parenthood agencies. Consider borrowing this video from us for you or your organization to view. 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 if you are interested.

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. Every life is unique, irreplaceable, and invaluable. We appreciate you who stand with us!
