The Michigan Legislature began its three-week "lame duck" session and prolife activists need to mobilize NOW to insure that legislation worked on for the past 23 months is completed before the clock runs out.
Earlier this year the State House passed an unprecedented package of prolife bills, led by House Bill 5711, an omnibus bill combining 5 separate prolife bills into one bill (known as the Prolife Bus). A Senate Committee quickly followed suit and moved the bill to the Senate floor. The bill is very close to being ready for a final vote and presentation to the governor, but we must press hard to be sure nothing knocks this bill off course in the chaotic days of the lame duck session.
This is a call to rally the troops! To insure these critical prolife bills are completed, we need scores of citizen activists from across the state to come to Lansing on Thursday, December 6. We will convene in Room 426 of the State Capitol Building, beginning at 10 a.m. Briefing sessions with instructions and materials will be held every half hour at 10 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 11 a.m., and 11:30 a.m.
To have a reasonable idea about attendance, we have set up a special email account: LobbyDay@rtl.org to RSVP. Please let us know how many are coming. You may direct questions to that email address, too.

If your schedule does not allow you to attend Life Lobby Day, you can do two important things:
- Recruit others to attend Life Lobby Day (on your behalf)
- Call, email, or write your state representative and state senator in Lansing and ask them to support the Prolife Bus and Abortion Exchange Opt Out bills.
