In January two new Right to Life of Michigan Educational Fund television ads are debuting across the state. The ads focus on adoption. A third ad was also produced, as well as a four-minute short film weaving the three stories together. The campaign's purpose is to encourage adoption as a positive, life-giving, and often life-completing option for unplanned pregnancies.
From January 17 to January 22 the Right to Life of Michigan Ed Fund will once again air the radio ad, “War on the Unborn,” based off Peter Heck’s popular YouTube video. Often called “the BB ad,” the ad informs listeners about the high cost of abortion: more than 58 million lives. A number of that magnitude is hard to understand, but the ad uses just BBs and a tin can to put this cost into context. Peter Heck’s humbling demonstration truly shows the reality of abortion in America.
Planned Parenthood called the undercover videos exposing their organ harvesting scheme “heavily edited,” but the videos are real and leading to results. On December 7, news broke that the Department of Justice is investigating Planned Parenthood. On December 9, news broke that two California companies are being forced to shut down for breaking laws banning fetal organ harvesting. On December 11, it was announced that the FBI is investigating the University of New Mexico and an abortion clinic in Albuquerque for fetal organ harvesting.
Reuters released an exclusive report on December 26 that federal investigators found the bodies of four unborn babies during a raid on a “body broker” warehouse in Detroit. The body broker, Arthur Rathburn, collects corpses to sell their body parts for experiments or medical training. It’s unclear if the babies were aborted, or if authorities will hold Rathburn accountable for breaking tissue trafficking laws involving unborn children. Rathburn’s trial on other charges will begin on January 4.

Contrary to their public relations spin, Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest provider and promoter of abortion. To read most reporting on Planned Parenthood, it is easy to see how many might believe the spin instead of facts. Here's the facts that show why prolife people should not be forced to fund Planned Parenthood.
Protecting unborn children from the brutality of dismemberment abortions 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.
