While data released by the Michigan Department of Community Health showed a slight increase in the number of reported abortions performed in 2014, the report also highlighted a decrease in abortions committed on minor girls. The positive trend of declining abortions on girls under the age of 18 is hopeful. Since 1987, abortions in Michigan have decreased by 43.7 percent.
Infamous Michigan abortionist Alberto Hodari is coming under fire again after it was discovered that he unlawfully left thousands of patient files unattended at his former abortion clinic in Flint. Hodari has a long track record of failing to protect women's privacy, dumping bodies of aborted babies, health code violations and patient deaths at his businesses. Abortion harms women, but help is available.

First-of-its-kind legislation would protect unborn children from the brutality of dismemberment abortion. The Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act is a legislative priority for Michigan. A law is needed because D&E dismemberment abortions are as brutal as the partial-birth abortion method, which is now illegal in Michigan and the United States. Know the facts and be ready to respond to protect children preparing to be born from unthinkable brutality.
Recently introduced legislation in Michigan focuses on the heart. The Heartbeat Awareness Act states that before an abortion is committed, the doctor must attempt to detect a fetal heartbeat and allow the woman to hear the heartbeat if she chooses. This legislation is important because detection of a fetal heartbeat provides valuable medical information.
Living proof of the power of love and compassion
Right to Life of Michigan Educational Fund is proud to introduce three incredible short films and 30 second TV spots showing how love and compassion saved and improved the lives of the women featured. Abortion was not the answer, and they are living proof—even in the hardest of situations.
Honoring women on Mother's Day
Right to Life of Michigan is excited to present Mother's Day bulletin inserts and bookmarks. Consider sharing these beautifully designed inserts and bookmarks with the special women in your church. The Bible verse and blessing shows love to mothers for all they do!
Plan ahead for loved ones
The best way to ensure that you receive the medical treatment you desire is to communicate thoroughly. A Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care is an important tool to help you do that and to give family members clear instructions about your wishes. A DPOA-HC form link is conveniently located in the left column.
