Grand Rapids Right to Life hosted three buses filled with prolife supporters who enthusiastically attended the Michigan March for Life on Wednesday, November 8, in Lansing. The event was held on the first anniversary of the passage of Proposal 3, which enshrined the “right” to abortion in the Michigan Constitution.
The crowd of 5,000 sent a strong message to elected officials, the citizens of the state, and the nation that prolife people will continue to fight for the right to life from fertilization until natural death.
The event included a pre-rally concert and a rally in front of the State Capitol.
Several individuals spoke powerfully in defense of life, including keynote speaker Genecia Davis, founder of Black Girls for Life. Davis shared her personal story of abortion and her subsequent path to peace.
Additional speakers included Bishop Boyea of the Diocese of Lansing; Barbara Listing, president of Right to Life of Michigan; Jeannie Mancini, president of National March for Life; Mildred Parker-Miller, who spent 34 years working in the foster care and adoption system in Detroit; Dr. Michelle Monticello, co-medical director for Life Choices of Central Michigan; and State Senator Thomas Albert.
