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.
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.
