Christmas Greetings from Barbara Listing & Right to Life of Michigan

During this Christmas season, I want to thank you for supporting the life-saving work of Right to Life of Michigan.
While Michigan continues to make national headlines because of the tough economic climate in our state, your donations have allowed us to lead the nation in another way.

Here are a few highlights which often don't make the news:

  • Abortions performed in 2009 (most recent annual statistic available) dropped 13.9 percent over 2008. Second largest decrease in Michigan history! Despite the economy!
  • Abortions performed in Michigan hit a high mark in 1987. Since that time, the overall abortion number has decreased 54.4 percent.
  • Minor abortions in Michigan have decreased 63 percent since the 1990s.
  • Michigan has put together the finest track-record in the nation in terms of reducing abortions performed.
As we prepare to move full speed ahead into the New Year, I wanted you to know that a tax-deductible matching gift opportunity is currently available through the Right to Life of Michigan Educational Fund. Online donations up to $50,000 will be matched until December 31, 2011.

Thank you for being a part of Michigan's success. Our state is a better place because of your dedication.

Please consider a donation today! Your gift will be doubled which increases the life-saving work of Right to Life of Michigan!
