Contrasting life and death


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.


Trump Administration's New Rules are Prolife Victories


The Trump administration has finalized the Protect Life Rule, which would redirect $60 million taxpayer dollars AWAY from abortion giant Planned Parenthood to non-abortion clinics.  This is a crucial step in the right direction!  

The Trump Administration’s Department of Health and Human Services released its final rule change on Title X, the federal family planning program.  The new rule requires a “clear financial and physical separation between Title X funded projects and programs or facilities where abortion is a method of family planning.” 

This would mean that in order for Planned Parenthood to receive its usual $60 million annually in Title X funding, it would need to separate its abortion business from its other services, financially and physically (120 days to comply financially, and one year to comply physically). Planned Parenthood’s facilities are all housed under the same roof, so to speak, which means that any funds going toward Planned Parenthood for birth control services are also serving to keep its abortion business functioning ,due to fungibility.

November 7, 2018

The Trump Administration's Department of Health and Human Services announced a prolife victory: two new rules were established regarding abortion coverage in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

The first rule affects taxpayer funding of insurance plans that cover elective abortions, requiring people who want insurance coverage of abortion to pay for it themselves. The change is similar to our 2013 Abortion Insurance Opt-Out Act in Michigan.

The second rule finalizes changes to the HHS Contraceptives Mandate, making it essentially optional. Both Hobby Lobby and the Little Sisters of the Poor won their cases at the U.S. Supreme Court, and the Trump Administration followed through on promises to protect their conscience rights.  Read More


For the first time in many years, 

Michigan will be a true battleground state.

New election rules were put in place in 2018

The biggest change is no-reason absentee voting; now you can request an absentee ballot without having to give a reason.

No-reason absentee voting has some advantages. If you’re sure about your vote, you can get it done right away from the comfort of your office desk or kitchen table. You can have the RLM-PAC endorsement list right in front of you, rather than printing it off to take to the polling booth.

If you want to “vote from home,” here’s what you need to know:

  • No reason is needed to request an absentee ballot.
  • Get the application form online here (or from your local clerk):
  • Return the application to your local clerk by mail, fax, or e-mail.
  • An absentee ballot will be mailed to you. Fill it out and send it back via mail or in-person drop off to your local clerk.
  • Absentee ballots must be returned by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Don’t delay, and don’t drop it in the mail the morning of Election Day!

You can also vote early in your local clerk’s office until Monday, March 9. Visit the office, request your ballot, and fill it out right there.


Abortion Clinic Complaint
  • Were you forced or pressured to have an abortion against your will? 
  • Have you been physically harmed by an abortion doctor? 
  • Was the facility substandard in terms of cleanliness? 

Laws are in place that protect patients from harm and abuse. If you believe a state law has been violated by an abortion clinic, please learn more about the process of filing a complaint with the state.  Review a summary of Michigan  laws to help you decide if a violation has occurred.  If you are unsure whether a law has been broken, call the 

Right to Life of Michigan Legislative Office in Lansing at (517) 487-3376. 

Filing Complaints About Abortion Pill Side Effects


Planned Parenthood gets away with the bogus claim 

that the abortion pill is safe because so few women submit complaints.

If there were any bad side effects caused by a medical pill abortion (RU-486/Mifepristone), 

you can report it online to the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) 

using their MedWatch system.  File complaint online  

If you have questions about filing a complaint, 

contact the FDA’s Division of Drug Information at (888) 463-6332.

Governor Whitmer Calls for Unlimited Abortions Like New York

October 29, 2019Press Release
Lansing, MI — Today, Governor Whitmer and pro-abortion allies held a press conference to unveil what they call the Reproductive Health Act. The New York-style act would allow unlimited abortions in the state of Michigan up to the point of birth.

The act has not been introduced yet in the Legislature.

The legislation would repeal Michigan’s complete ban on abortions, which is only partially enforceable because of the U.S. Supreme Court. Michigan’s complete ban was backed by 60% of Michigan voters in 1972, but the vote was overturned by the Supreme Court’s decisions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton which legalized abortion-on-demand through all nine months of pregnancy.

The Reproductive Health Act would codify the Supreme Court’s decisions in state law, but it would also undo many widely supported prolife laws.

According to talking points provided by Planned Parenthood, the legislation would:

Allow minor teens to have secret abortions without their parents’ consent—or even knowledge.
Allow abortion facilities to ignore health and safety regulations that other medical clinics follow.
Allow abortion facilities to refuse to provide informed consent to women.
Allow walk-in abortions with no waiting period.
Based on the provided talking points and similar legislation in other states, the Reproductive Health Act may do the following:

Repeal Michigan’s ban on tax-funded abortions that has saved an estimated 236,935 lives since 1989.
Allow nurses and physician assistants to perform surgical abortions.

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 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!

Banning Dismemberment Abortions in Michigan

Clearing Up Confusion About Heartbeat vs. Dismemberment Bans in Michigan

On their website and in conversations with many, we’ve heard that the Heartbeat Coalition is misleading people about Right to Life of Michigan’s dismemberment abortion ban, telling people it will not save lives. The Heartbeat Coalition says the heartbeat ban they are working on with their own petition drive will save lives in Michigan. That’s not accurate.

Here’s a what you need to know about Michigan...

Analyzing the Heartbeat Coalition’s ACLJ Brief, including the details on the "saving clause".

Did you know that half of all abortions are repeat abortions--women trapped in a vicious cycle? Or that abortion is the largest global tool for discrimination against women? Or that the effects of an abortion don't just stop with the woman, but can extend to her entire family and circle of friends?

More importantly, how many people in your community know?  Right to Life of Michigan has tons of tools to help you know your prolife stuff and to help explain abortion to others.



Wow! Listen to this mom’s POWERFUL SPEECH on why Planned Parenthood's sex education curriculum does not belong in our schools.

Do you know if Planned Parenthood has been contracted for your children's school????



For many, Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) is a trusted name in affordable reproductive health care. PPFA would like to keep that standing for the hundreds of centers they operate. They would also like to remain the largest provider and promoter of abortion in the United States. To reach both goals, PPFA must distort the truth and provide misleading information to women who are experiencing an unexpected pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America Quick Facts

Abortion has taken more Black American lives than every other cause of death combined since 1973.

More than crime. More than accidents. More than cancerheart disease and AIDSAbortion has taken more Black American lives than every other cause of death combined since 1973. In the United States, the abortion rate for Black women is almost 4 times that of White women. On average, 900 Black babies are aborted every day in the United States. This tragedy continues to impact the population levels of African Americans in the United States.

Planned Parenthood Downplays Commitment to Abortion

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.

Abortion Clinic Complaint

The Center for Medical Progress

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.



January 18 2019...The Fifth Circuit explicitly found in their ruling that the Center for Medical Progress’ videos are authentic And could be relied upon by Texas and by others as the regulatory and other enforcement proceedings. 

CURRENTLY however, in spite of the January ruling, the legal battles continue for the Center of Medical Progress, founder David Daleiden, and and co-defendant Sandra Merritt.  Current updates on the trials can be found at Center for Medical Progress. org.  Look under 'RECENT POST - Trial Summaries are listed by  date.
