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.

15 week Abortion Ban

You may have heard some organizations or candidates promote a federal 15-week abortion ban as the path forward. Sadly, a federal 15-week ban offers almost no protection for the unborn, since about 95% of abortions happen in the first 15 weeks of pregnancy. Please visit Right Life of Michigan-15 week ban for more information.

Blessing Bag Project

BCRTL continues to provide the sidewalk counselors with blessing bags to hand out to women coming to and from the local abortion clinic. There is information in the bag about Local crisis PG resources, abortion pill reversal, adoption and the healing post-abortive ministry of Rachel’s Vineyard. Please contact us if you are interested in being part of this ministry by calling (989) 895-8481 or emailing us at

November 8 – Michigan March for Life in Lansing

2023 Crosses Project

Pink and blue crosses were put up at the beginning of October at a site on M-13 (Huron Road).  Each cross represents 100 Michigan abortions in the latest recording year.

2023 Focus on Life Dinner

Another year has passed and our annual benefit dinner on October 3rd was once again an educational and uplifting event!

  Sidewalk Advocates for Life

We will not being hosting a 40-Day-for-Life campaign this year. Instead, we are hosting a Sidewalk Advocates for Life (SAL) class in the fall, date to be determined.  The vision of Sidewalk Advocates for Life is a peaceful, prayerful, loving, and law-abiding sidewalk outreach present outside every abortion and abortion-referral facility in the U.S. and beyond, redirecting all to life-affirming alternatives, thereby ending abortion. This will be a day training to be held locally. Visit the SAL website or email us at for more details.

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!
