Prolife leaders from across Michigan meet in Lansing

Yesterday, April 27, about 300 leaders and volunteers from local affiliates throughout the state of Michigan met in Lansing for the annual Right to Life of Michigan Legislative Day.

Attendees were briefed about many prolife bills working their way through a tough legislative process at the State Capitol. Two of those bills would ban any exchange of money in connection with fetal tissue donations, and they passed the Michigan Senate 26-10 during Legislative Day!

Following the event and presentation by Sue Thayer, former director of a Planned Parenthood clinic, the crowd walked over to the State Capitol to encourage prolife representatives in the Michigan House.

Last week the Legislature completed work on the Rape Survivor Child Custody Act, sending it to the governor, but many more bills need action soon.
