Focus on Life Dinner, September 20, 2021

Our Chance to Overturn Roe v. Wade is Upon Us!

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear a critical case this fall, Dobbs v. Jackson Center, that challenges the core of the Roe v. Wade decision. Right to Life of Michigan filed a “friend of the court” brief, requesting in no uncertain terms, that Roe be overturned.

The keynote speaker for our RTLIC annual Focus on Life dinner is Professor William Wagner, president of the Great Lakes Justice Center, who led the team writing RLM’s brief. A renowned constitutional expert, former federal magistrate, and distinguished law professor, William Wagner will provide direct insight into the legal strategy attacking Roe v. Wade.

You do not want to miss the 2021 Focus on Life dinner! There will also be some great items for bid in a Silent Auction that evening.

Where: Resurrection Church, Mercy Hall, 1505 E. Michigan Ave., Lansing 48912

The election of a lifetime … depends on YOU!

Right to Life of Michigan PAC has endorsed hundreds of candidates for this 2020 election, from local office to the White House. But no election is more important than re-electing the most prolife president in history – Donald J. Trump. Four years ago many doubted that this formerly “prochoice” advocate could be trusted as a prolife convert.

Candidate Trump promised to restore prolife executive orders, appoint conservative judges to the courts and cut off funding to Planned Parenthood. President Trump kept those promises! He is the first and only president to appear in person at the March for Life in its 47-year history.

With four more years in office, he should be able to appoint 1 or 2 more Supreme Court justices. He will need a prolife majority in the U.S. Senate to approve his nominees. Michigan must elect rock-solid prolife candidate John James to the U.S. Senate! We need John James to replace 100% proabortion Gary Peters in Washington.

But these crucial election outcomes will not happen without YOU! Not just you voting prolife, but your help is needed in getting others to vote too. We need volunteers to help us:

• Do literature drops in key neighborhoods
• Make phone calls to prolife supporters
• Help distribute yard signs

Epic Statewide Virtual Event – Premieres September 28th

We’re Not Giving Up on Life!

Covid-19 restrictions have resulted in Right to Life of Michigan affiliates statewide, canceling their fall benefit dinner events, including Right to Life of Ingham County (RTLIC). Just when there is tremendous need for inspiration and financial resources, we are not allowed to gather and affirm our resolve to end the injustice of abortion.

But we are resilient and Right to Life of Michigan has created an online broadcast event that will recharge our prolife commitment and allow us to supercharge our financial coffers.

We’re Not Giving Up on Life will premiere online on Wednesday, September 28, at 7:30 pm. It’s a prolife extravaganza with featured speaker Sarah Huckabee Sanders, former White House press secretary, and hosted by Christian music artist Matthew West. West wrote and performed the title track for the movie Unplanned.

Planned Parenthood has pledged to spend $2.8 million in Michigan this election. We have a goal of raising $2 million statewide by gathering prolifers in homes and churches for “watch parties” and making a financial gift during the event. RTLIC will receive a share of the funds raised that evening from those watch parties.

Each fall we invite supporters to fill a table at our annual dinner. This year we want groups to gather in homes for an evening of fellowship and prolife inspiration. Will you host friends and family and participate in We’re Not Giving Up on Life?

After the premiere, access to the event will be available until November 3. It is password protected, so participants must register in advance of viewing. Watch party hosts can register once for the whole group at Let us know if you plan to host, we can supply envelopes and pledge cards.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh nominated to fill vacancy on U.S. Supreme Court

With Justice Anthony Kennedy retiring, the U.S. Supreme Court is losing its most frequent “swing” justice. President Trump nominated circuit court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to take his place. Kavanaugh describes his judicial philosophy as following laws, not making them. Another fair justice would tip the scale farther towards letting voters have a say on abortion laws. The abortion industry believes Roe v. Wade itself is at stake.


Does Destroying the Unborn Make Us Richer?

Chelsea Clinton thinks so. In her statement at a pro-Roe v. Wade rally, she claimed that women who entered the workforce because of Roe v. Wade have added three and a half trillion dollars to our economy. Setting aside the horrifying moral implications for a moment, her economic statement is simply false. The killing of our future generations through abortion has already begun to destroy our future, at the cost of our moral authority.
