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.

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 www.rtl.org/notgivinguponlife. Let us know if you plan to host, we can supply envelopes and pledge cards.
