Winning hearts and minds with the message of life

Do you ever wonder about becoming more involved in an outreach which saves lives? There are not many causes which allow you to use your time and talent in ways which help mothers and families and literally save the lives of babies preparing to be born. Right to Life of Michigan is one of those causes. 

Right to Life of Michigan is an organization of people who acknowledge that human life is precious and irreplaceable. The values we embrace lead us to reject the taking of human life to solve the challenges of life itself.  We reject the pessimism that concludes human life must be taken to better the lives of others.

Whether you are new to the prolife movement or have been involved in the past, please consider joining  Right to Life of Michigan and others for an informative, fun one-day conference.

The Right to Life of Michigan 40th Annual Conference is Friday, September 27, at the Radisson Hotel Lansing. The Conference will feature two outstanding general sessions.

The first general session, “Beyond the Bumper Sticker: Human Dignity and our Common Humanity,” will be presented by Paige Comstock Cunningham. Paige Comstock Cunningham, JD, is the executive director of The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity. Cunningham lectures regularly on bioethical issues and has published numerous articles, editorials and book chapters on issues of law, public policy and bioethics. She has testified before Congress and has a regular commentary on Moody Radio called “Everyday Bioethics.”

The second general session, “A Rape Survivor’s Story of Birth & Life,” will feature Shauna Prewitt. Shauna Prewitt, JD, is an author, attorney, advocate and public speaker. While attending the University of Chicago, Shauna was a victim of sexual assault. Soon thereafter, she learned she was pregnant from her attack. After deciding to continue the pregnancy and raise her child, Shauna was shocked when her attacker sought custody of her baby girl. She was even more astonished when she learned that few legal protections exist to protect the women who become mothers after rape. Spurred by these events, Shauna made a commitment to do what she could to change custody laws around the nation.

A delicious breakfast and lunch along with a variety of workshops makes the day complete.
