Abortion leaves families heartbroken
Women are not the only ones who feel pain and suffering following an abortion. Abortion can have a wide impact on others involved, including spouses, significant others, children, siblings and parents. Our Abortion Leaves Families Heartbroken flyer looks at ways abortion can negatively affect more than just the woman and the child.

Keeping our promise to protect life!
Make plans to attend the 41st Annual Right to Life of Michigan Conference on Thursday, September 25, in Lansing. The Conference is an excellent opportunity for prolifers to renew a commitment to the most defenseless members of the human family, and improve upon plans for protecting life. Come meet our special guest speaker Ryan Bomberger, the Emmy Award-winning chief creative officer of The Radiance Foundation, and be inspired by other informative speakers and workshops.
Are you ready for fall?
Prolife citizens collected more than 300,000 signatures to initiate legislation to opt Michigan out of using our tax dollars and insurance premiums to pay for abortions. A new study from the Government Accountability Office reaffirms the necessity of Michigan's law by finding the vast majority of insurance plans aren't separating the cost of abortion from the rest of the insurance as President Obama promised in an executive order. The study also proves a number of opponents of the Abortion Insurance Opt-Out Act were clearly wrong to attack the motives of prolife citizens.
Recently the notorious abortionist Robert Alexander was on trial in front of an administrative law judge because of allegations of incompetency and negligence stemming from the closure of his Muskegon abortion clinic. On behalf of the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs an assistant attorney general laid out evidence and expert witness testimony detailing the egregious conditions that were uncovered during an investigation of Alexander's abortion business. Soon the Michigan Board of Medicine will decide the fate of Alexander's medical license.
Today, Planned Parenthood operates approximately 750 centers promoting their philosophy. While hiding behind the cover of being a healthcare resource for women, Planned Parenthood performs approximately 1 in every 4 abortions in the United States.
Writing online for the Federalist, Anna Mussmann encourages people to promote life for all in "Not Just The Pretty Babies." A civilized society is one where the weakest, least beautiful among us are seen as precious and worthy, and protected in law. Unfortunately, our society often judges a person's value by their abilities, and abortion rates for unborn children diagnosed with disabilities in the womb are very high.
Michael New, an assistant professor of political science at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, has new research published in State Politics & Policy Quarterly which shows how various prolife laws help to decrease abortion rates. New writes, "States should continue adopting common-sense laws that protect the health and safety of women and their children. They are literally life-saving."
Right to Life of Michigan is opposed to the social acceptance of assisted suicide and euthanasia. We believe that accepting these forms of intentional killing reflects a complete disrespect for the dignity of each person and for each person's right to life. We have failed if our solution to suffering is to kill those who suffer.
