Do You Know Debbie Stabenow?
U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow's record puts innocent lives in jeopardy. Below are examples of how her voting record fails to live up to the important standard that every human life has value and deserves legal protection.

 SENATOR DEBBIE STABENOW’S PRO-ABORTION RECORD

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. 

President Trump to divert Title X funding from Planned Parenthood
On May 18 President Trump announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Department will be introducing a policy that will remove Title X family planning tax funding from health-care providers that perform or refer women for abortions, shifting it to providers that don't. Known as the "Protect Life Rule," this policy is very similar to a Reagan-era rules that have already survived a court challenge and were upheld in 1991 by the U.S. Supreme Court. This policy demonstrates the commitment of the Trump Administration to end tax-funding of abortion providers.
 FULL STORY
Contrasting life and death

"RIGHT TO TRY" LAW

President Trump has signed into law the “Right to Try” bill that will allow those with potentially terminal diseases to try experimental treatments and bypass the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.  

“Thousands of terminally ill Americans will have the help, the hope and the fighting chance that they will be cured, that they will be helped, that they will be able to be with their families for a long time, or maybe just for a longer time,” President Trump said. “But we’re able to give them the absolute best we have at this current moment, at this current second. We’re going to help a lot of people. It’s an honor to be signing this.”

Patients with terminal conditions will have access to experimental treatments that could potentially save their lives.   "Right to Try" gives thousands of terminally ill Americans help, hope and a fighting chance, so much more compassionate than the push for "Physician Assisted Suicide". Life is precious, treasure every day.We are thankful that Americans will have the “Right to Try”!    Thank you President Trump!

 

Euthanasia and doctor-prescribed suicide are difficult issues. They are often presented as compassionate and responsible ways to respect the autonomy of suffering patients. In practice, however, they end up harming vulnerable people. Euthanasia and doctor-prescribed suicide end up being cheap, quick, and easy alternatives to doing what we should to care for those in need.

New Study: Abortion pill reversal saves nearly 68% of babies

Dr. George Delgado, the doctor behind the Abortion Pill Reversal medical intervention, recently published a study on the effectiveness of reversals. The study followed 754 women who regretted their decision to have a chemical abortion. This is the first data collected since 2012 that supports the effectiveness of the Abortion Pill Reversal, and the first large study published on it.

The abortion numbers many refuse to confront

Abortion has an incredibly disparate impact: more Black lives have been taken by abortion than every single other cause of death combined since 1973. Before such a difficult problem can be addressed, it needs to be identified and discussed. 

 IDENTIFY THE PROBLEM

Sex Abuse Cover Up at Planned Parenthood

 Through the 'Time's Up' and 'Me Too' movements, America is calling for an end to sexual abuse in every institution.  But few are calling out one of America’s biggest accomplices to sexual abuse, even though there is widespread documentation of decades-long systemic sexual abuse cover up behind its doors.  The group is Planned Parenthood and they are tax funded. Planned Parenthood claims that sexual assault victims come to their facilities on a daily basis.  Live Action’s video exposed how Planned Parenthood treats these victims, consistently and deliberately failing to report their abuse and even making a profit doing so.  

EXPOSED: PLANNED PARENTHOOD’S COVER-UP OF CHILD SEX ABUSE

How are abortions done?
The prolife group Live Action have released videos detailing how abortion procedures are performed as well as an interview with Dr. Anthony Levatino, a former abortionist who performed over 1,200 abortions.

These videos are very informational and show video illustrations of the abortion procedure while Dr. Levatino explains it. These videos are featured on AbortionProcedures.com and Dr. Levatino explains a D&E (Dilation and Evacuation) abortion, aspiration abortion, the abortion pill, and induction abortion. He also answers questions regarding his work as an abortionist.

Many women aren't aware of what takes place during an abortion procedure and view it as an easy solution. However, with 31 million views more and more people are realizing how violent abortions are and that they aren't an easy, painless solution. People have commented on the abortion procedure videos saying that they have made them rethink abortion.

We encourage you to view these videos, learn more about the abortion procedure and share them with your friends and family. Too often the abortion industry hides behind the truth, but now we have the chance to expose the truth to others!

Is abortion ever medically necessary?
 Former abortionist, Dr. Anthony Levatino, responds regarding the medical necessity of abortion.
Planned Parenthood Number One Provider of Abortion

Planned Parenthood continually attempts to distract from the fact that they are the number one provider and promoter of abortion, but consider the facts. Their own annual report shows how their services other than abortion continue to decline, yet they receive more tax dollars. A series of undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress show their callous attitude about the harvesting and selling of body parts of unborn babies they engaged in.

Planned Parenthood Downplays Commitment to Abortion

Defenders of Planned Parenthood often claim abortion is an insignificant part of their business, 3% of their services.  An RLM Blog post highlights a video explaining how Planned Parenthood uses deceiving figures to distract people from the fact that they are the leading provider and promoter of abortion in the United States.

See the video

Abby Johnson, who ran a Planned Parenthood clinic in Bryan, Texas, before leaving in 2009, provided a copy of the Facility Budget for the clinic for fiscal year 2010. It's interesting to see how the services provided by Planned Parenthood appear in this budget.  This video, "Abortion Should be Safe, Legal and Rare",  is short, to the point and worth the time to watch.

Planned Parenthood Defunding & Elections

Even though the U.S. Senate currently has a Republican majority, there are only about 49 votes to defund Planned Parenthood. It’s frustrating that circumstances have led to a missed opportunity because of one vote in the U.S. Senate, but elections have consequences. Thankfully prolife people in Michigan have a chance to reverse the consequences in the 2018 election.

Planned Parenthood Videos

A series of undercover videos released by David Daleiden, Center for Medical Progress, show Planned Parenthood staff discussing how Planned Parenthood affiliates sell the body parts of aborted children and change abortion procedures to ensure the requested organs remain intact. The videos show the crass treatment of human life as resources to be exploited in the abortion industry.
