Right to Life of Michigan launches 40 week educational campaign on fetal development, sanctity of human life

Life After 40 is a Right to Life of Michigan educational outreach for the 40th Memorial of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, the two U.S. Supreme Court decisions which legalized abortion through all nine months of pregnancy.

Right to Life of Michigan President Barbara Listing said, "After 40 weeks of pregnancy, a baby is born; after 40 years of Roe v. Wade, life begins again. We will be using the 40 weeks leading up to the 40th memorial of Roe as an opportunity to share weekly fetal development facts, encourage involvement in local prolife activities and let people know their prolife involvement is saving lives."

Since January 22, 1973, 54 million unborn children have been aborted. Their opportunity for life was taken away. Despite this tragedy, protectors of life have worked for 39 years to save vulnerable members of our human family. Lives have been spared from abortion because of the dedication of prolife people.

According to the Michigan Department of Community Health, abortions in Michigan have decreased by 52.5 percent since 1987.

For 40 weeks, from April 17 until the 40th memorial of Roe on January 22, 2013, Right to Life of Michigan is encouraging people to make a pledge to be a voice for the voiceless and share one fact each week about life in the womb.

Listing said, "We are excited to have this opportunity to promote not only the miracle of life, but also the sanctity of all human life."
