Powerful Video Gives Voice to Voiceless

Interview With An Unborn Child is a video which movingly gives a voice to the child preparing to be born. In this four minute film, you will hear the voice of an unborn baby; learn about his development, and sadly his fate. His life is about to be snuffed out in the abortion clinic.

The child says . . .

My loudest cry is in silence

My most beautiful dreams turn into nightmares

My greatest pain will not reach the ears of anyone,

Not even my mother . . .

The Story of Right to Life

The Story of Right to LifeThe Story of Right to life is a PowerPoint presentation for use in churches and group settings to educate about what it means to be prolife and the work of Right to Life groups.

This is a story about relationships. And, as such, it’s a story about us all. It’s as broad as the human journey, for it is woven into the fabric of our deepest issues. Human rights, preventing violence, child abuse and caring for the terminally ill are all spokes of the same wheel. And at the center of this wheel is the respect for human life.

After reviewing the Susan G. Komen for the Cure's (also known as the Komen Foundation) relationship with Planned Parenthood, the State Deputy of the Michigan Jurisdiction of the Knights of Columbus ruled that no Knights of Columbus council in Michigan can raise money or affiliate itself with Komen.

Prayers needed for women in unexpected pregnancies

Women experiencing unplanned pregnancies need our support and prayers. Women in unplanned pregnancies often feel that abortion is their only choice. Lift up these women in your prayers this week and ask God to show them they have life-affirming choices. If you or someone you know needs help, you can find a pregnancy center near you by calling 1-800-57-WOMAN, day or night. A caring, confidential help agency is as close as a phone call. You are not alone. 

Lives depend on us

Data released by the Michigan Department of Community Health showed an increase in the number of reported abortions performed in 2014. A total of 27,629 induced abortions were reported in Michigan in 2014, which was a 5.8 percent increase from the total of 26,120 reported in 2013 but a 43.7 percent decrease since 1987 (the year with the largest number of induced abortions). While the overall trend of decreasing abortions is encouraging, this year's increase and the annual overall numbers serve as a reminder that our prolife efforts must continue - lives depend on us.

Need a Visual?

Showing the reality and impact of abortion without using graphic pictures is challenging. However, one powerful way to "see" how abortion has damaged our country is to juxtapose the war on the unborn to the number of American's who lost their lives in battle. This handout is especially helpful around Memorial Day.
