ABORTION

FetusAbortion is any act or procedure performed with the willful intent to cause the death of an unborn child from conception to birth.  As such, abortion is a grave act of injustice toward the child and a clear violation of the child’s natural, unalienable right to life and the child’s legal right not to be deprived of life without due cause.

  • Abortion in Michigan
    Abortions in Michigan have decreased by almost 46% since 1987, the year with the largest number of induced abortions.
  • Abortion in the United States
    Roughly 60,000,000 abortions have been performed in the United States since 1973, when abortion-on-demand was legalized. The annual number of abortions, however, has been decreasing since 1990.
  • The Hard Cases of Rape and Incest
    Women who have been raped are victims of horrible crimes. Abortion, however, does not help a woman who finds herself pregnant due to rape or incest, and the child is valuable regardless of how she was conceived.
  • Psychological Consequences of Abortion
    Women who have had an abortion frequently suffer from anxiety, guilt, pain, depression, irritability, anger, sleep difficulties, nightmares, withdrawal from relationships, pessimism, drug or alcohol abuse, and suicidal thoughts.
  • Abortion Procedures
    Since abortion has been legalized, there have been many techniques promoted to end the life of a developing unborn child. These procedures always harm the child, who is capable of feeling pain by at least 20 weeks, and sometimes physically harm the mother.

FETAL DEVELOPMENT

Our lives began long before birth.  It is an indisputable, scientific fact that our lives began at the moment of fertilization.  By eight weeks, all body systems are present and from that point on, changes are primarily in the size and refinement of the body parts already formed.

    Here is a beautiful description of the first months of life, starting from the point of fertilization.

ADOPTION

Young GirlIn the interest of protecting human life and offering a viable alternative to abortion, a woman dealing with a crisis pregnancy should be presented with the life-giving choice of adoption and be informed of the resources available to her.  Although every woman in a crisis pregnancy situation will not choose this option, there is a surplus of families waiting to adopt a child into their home.

  • A Loving Option
    For a pregnant woman who is not ready or equipped to be a parent, adoption provides a positive, life-giving solution to a difficult situation. For every newborn released for adoption, there are 30-40 couples waiting to adopt.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD

Planned Parenthood LogoPlanned Parenthood is the nation’s largest provider and promoter of abortion.  In 2018, Planned Parenthood performed 332,757 abortions.  Only 2,831 patients were referred to outside agencies for adoptions; therefore, abortions outnumbered adoption referrals by nearly 160 to 1.  According to their 2018 annual report, Planned Parenthood received $563,800,000 from taxpayers and made a profit of $245,00,000.

  • Abortion
    Planned Parenthood downplays the significance of abortion, stating that it represents only 3.4% of its services. The reality, however, is that Planned Parenthood accounts for more than a quarter of all abortions in the United States.

EUTHANASIA

Holding HandsEuthanasia is expressly intended to cause the death of a person, either by lethal injection, assisting in suicide, or withholding basic levels of care from non-terminal people. It is humane to allow a person suffering from a terminal illness to die naturally, without the use of extraordinary medical treatment that only prolongs the dying process. When a person has clearly reached their last days, the focus of medical treatment may be switched from curing to caring, but never to killing.

  • Caring, Not Killing
    Death is not a solution to the challenges of life.  It is important to understand the consequences of legalizing euthanasia and assisted suicide.
  • Doctor-Prescribed Suicide
    Every patient is entitled to a dignified death with the right to refuse treatment that they view as burdensome, but much is at stake when doctors have the power to write lethal prescriptions.

HUMAN EMBRYONIC STEM CELL RESEARCH

Embryonic Stem CellsHuman Embryonic Stem Cell research involves the deliberate destruction of human embryos, including the use of existing stem cell lines derived from human embryos. Science confirms that at fertilization a unique human individual is created. Such life is intrinsically valuable and should never be subject to deliberate manipulation or destruction.

  • The Great Stem Cell Debate
    This research involves the extraction of embryonic stem cells from a human embryo, which kills an innocent human being. It forces one human being to sacrifice her life without consent in the vague hope that her cells might one day cure another human being.xxx

LIFE LESSONS FOR TEACHERS

StudentsIt is vital that young people encounter prolife issues while they develop their worldviews. The airwaves, the Internet, and phone screens are constantly filled with bad or incomplete information on abortion and many other topics related to the sanctity of human life. Life Lessons will help educators provide their students with a genuine appreciation for the gift of life.

  • Life Lessons
    Life Lessons is 13 age-appropriate lesson plans for children from kindergarten to high school. Each lesson is connected to a Michigan state educational standard.

BLACK ABORTIONS IN AMERICA

Abortion is the number one killer of black lives in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, abortion kills more black people than HIV, homicide, diabetes, accident, cancer, and heart disease … combined.


VOTE FOR LIFE

In every election, voters face life or death issues. Candidates at every level can impact prolife issues. Certainly at the highest levels, making the right choice means a quicker end to Roe v. Wade, saving potentially millions of lives. If we don’t start with Life at the ballot box, we can never restore legal protection for every person.
