A series of undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress show Planned Parenthood staff discussing how Planned Parenthood affiliates sell the body parts of aborted children and change abortion procedures to ensure the requested organs remain intact. The videos show the crass treatment of human life as resources to be exploited in the abortion industry.
The recent videos that have exposed Planned Parenthood selling baby body parts have left many to wonder what they can do. You can help by contacting your legislators, denying support to companies that donate to Planned Parenthood, sharing information on social media, and praying for the employees at Planned Parenthood.
Give life twice, give cord blood! Cord blood is found in a baby’s umbilical cord and is a rich source of ethical stem cells. A transplant of stem cells from cord blood can help someone with a life-threatening disease. Cord blood donation is easy, free, and painless. It doesn’t affect the birthing process. Rather than throwing away the umbilical cord as medical waste, donating it could help to save someone’s life!
For years Michigan abortion businesses weren't properly regulated or inspected. The Abortion Abuses and State Regulator Agency Failure Report released by Right to Life of Michigan in 2011 showed that most clinics were not in compliance with state laws and highlighted a vital need for thorough oversight and enforcement. Now, after passing the Prolife Omnibus Act in 2012, abortion businesses are being held increasingly accountable. See an update on recent cases.
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.
Webpage highlights alarming abortion statistics
A new page has been created that highlights the fact that abortion has taken more Black American lives than every other cause of death combined since 1973. In the United States, the abortion rate for black women is almost 4 times that of white women, and, on average, 870 black babies are aborted every day. This widespread tragedy continues to have a disparate impact on Black Americans, yet it is rarely discussed in the popular culture or in media. Also available from the page is a full-color brochure that anyone can download and print freely.
What churches can do to promote life
Right to Life of Michigan has compiled a new flyer listing ways that churches can become involved in the prolife movement. There are simple things that churches can do to be advocates for life, including having copies of prolife publications, adding prolife books to your library, or organizing a diaper drive for a local pregnancy center. Actively engaging with the prolife movement can be inspiring and life-changing!
