Decisive prolife victory

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your election efforts!

Donald J. Trump, who campaigned as a prolife candidate and suggested in the third debate that his Supreme Court nominees could overturn Roe v. Wade, is America’s president-elect. Trump won Michigan by just 13,225 votes, the first time a prolife presidential candidate has carried the state since 1988. Your efforts made an astounding difference!

Last night was a positive first step, but the real battle for prolifers is at the U.S. Supreme Court. Antonin Scalia’s seat still needs to be filled, and that justice must recognize the plain fact that abortion is mentioned nowhere in the U.S. Constitution. A Republican U.S. Senate must thoroughly participate in the process to ensure non-biased rule of law justices are picked for the Supreme Court and other court vacancies throughout the country.

All of the congressional candidates endorsed by the RLM-PAC won last night, including the critical races featuring Jack Bergman in the Upper Peninsula/Northern Michigan and Rep. Tim Walberg from mid-Michigan.

Statewide results show a strong prolife performance. All but one priority Michigan House races were won by RLM-PAC endorsed candidates. The Michigan Legislature retains large prolife majorities. The Michigan Supreme Court candidates both won. Four of seven prolife candidates to state education boards won as well.

RLM-PAC-endorsed statewide and judicial candidates won 90.8% of their races last night. We’re still counting up the local races.

The only troubling result was doctor-prescribed suicide winning in Colorado. The culture of death had a large defeat last night, but it will not simply go away. More effort is needed.

Right to Life of Michigan is unique, because our strength is in our local, grassroots volunteers. You are the finest prolife volunteers in the nation and the entire world. Your grassroots reach is unmatched in Michigan.

These victories belong to you. Thank you!
