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.

Right to Life of Michigan turned in the Dismemberment Petitions to the Secretary of State on Dec. 23, 2019 in downtown Lansing. There were about 50 people attending, (the picture was snapped before all of the people got in the picture). Some of the people pictured are: Barbara Listing, President, Right to Life of Michigan; Dan Jarvis, Michigan Family Forum; James Muffet, Citizens for Traditional Values; Lynn Mills, and several RLM staff. The second picture is of Ed Rivet and another person unloading petitions inside the SOS office.

Mason Down Home Days, September 2019

2019 booth

RTL Ingham County sponsored a booth at the Mason Down Home Days. Several of the RTLIC Board members manned the booth throughout the day. (Susan McGillicuddy is pictured during her shift). This is an annual event we participate in.

Our 2019 goal was to collect signatures for the Dismemberment Abortion Ban Petition. It was a very successful event, we collected about 200 signatures and handed out petitions to a few church members to take back to their church.

Anyone interested in volunteering for this year’s event, please contact us. It is in September, only requires about a 2-hour commitment and you get to meet a lot of interesting people. Our push this year will be: GET OUT THE VOTE.

SB564 & 565 passed the House on Dec. 15, 2016

The bill passed the Senate earlier in the year.  Lt. Gov. Calley signed the bill during Gov. Snyder vacation.  The bills prohibit any money being paid to abortionists or clinics for supplying organs and tissue of aborted babies used in research.

Elective abortion removed as standard ‘benefit’ from health plans 

The question of who pays for abortion insurance was answered today in Michigan. The Michigan House (62-47) and Senate (27-11) approved the citizen-initiated Abortion Insurance Opt-Out Act. The Abortion Insurance Opt-Out Act is about who desires abortion coverage and who will pay for it, not whether abortion is legal or if insurance is available.

The December 11 vote in the Michigan House and Senate is a victory for Michigan and concludes a narrative of effort by a cast of hundreds of thousands of volunteers and key leaders. Because of the dedication of many, Michigan joins 23 other states in opting-out of abortion coverage in their health insurance exchanges through the Affordable Care Act.

Life and death decisions are being made behind closed doors

Bob Tank’s story is a must-read story. Bob’s daughter, Genevieve Marnon, is part of the Right to Life of Michigan legislative team in Lansing. Bob’s hospital experience and similar stories we’ve heard recently are setting off alarm bells about how our medical systems are handling end-of-life care. Secret do-not-resuscitate orders and secret court hearings to strip caregivers from patients must never be how conflicts over medical care are handled.

Women's reproductive health isn't a matter of 'pro-life' vs. 'pro-choice'
Chicago Tribune
Policymaking around reproductive health has had the unfortunate effect of splitting Americans into two camps: “pro-choice” and “pro-life.” These labels are limiting and misleading, as well as harmful to millions of women in need of critical medical care.
