Everyone can make a positive difference in the prolife movement. It doesn't matter how old you are, how young you are, how busy you are or how skilled you are. Everyone can help save lives.

If you are not already involved in your local prolife group, now is a great time to start. While hundreds from Michigan will travel to Washington, D.C., for the March for Life, thousands of Michigan citizens will be involved in numerous events across the state to commemorate the 39th anniversary of two ill-conceived U.S. Supreme Court decisions. When Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton were handed down, abortion was legalized in all 50 states through all nine months of pregnancy. In the last 39 years, more than 54 million unborn children have lost their lives to abortion. Unborn children for too long have been denied access to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Prolife groups across Michigan mourn these deaths and pay tribute to the countless told and untold stories of those affected by legalized abortion.

Many events are planned on or around January 22, Sanctity of Human Life Sunday.
