Next Steps for Church Reps @ Grand Rapids Right to Life
May 14 all-day

It’s time to make abortion real!

Church Representatives are invited to this Next Steps session to learn about abortion in this community. The reality is that 35 women from Kent County are getting abortions every week.

Thomas Lawrence, prolife ambassador, is hosting a Next Steps for Church Reps session focused on “Making Abortion Real”. He will lead a field trip from the Grand Rapids Right to Life office to the only free-standing surgical abortion facility in this city.

Groups will leave from the Grand Rapids Right to Life office at 9:00 AM and at 4:00 PM.

Church Representatives are invited to go with Thomas and pray on the public sidewalk in front of the location where babies are killed in the name of “choice” three days a week. Come and learn the history of this abortion facility and the abortion procedures that are performed there. By partnering with Grand Rapids Right to Life, your church can be a part of the legislative effort to end the slaughter of the unborn in this community.

To attend, submit an RSVP online by May 8.

Space is limited, so kindly limit your attendance to no more than two people per church.

Focus on Life Benefit Dinner @ DeVos Place Ballrooms
Oct 12 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

The 33rd annual Focus on Life Benefit Dinner will be the largest prolife banquet in Michigan, will incorporate 25 student volunteers, and will feature Gov. Mike Huckabee, Fox News contributor and TV host, as the keynote speaker.

Huckabee was the 44th Governor of Arkansas from 1996 until 2007. He left a legacy of tax cuts, job creation, the reconstruction of his state’s road system, K-16 education reform, and a nationally heralded and duplicated health initiative that focused on prevention.

As a staunch defender of the right to life, Huckabee has stated:

“It’s time that we recognize the Supreme Court is not the supreme being, and we change the policy to be prolife and protect children instead of rip up their body parts and sell them like they’re parts to a Buick.” (August 7, 2015)

Grand Rapids Right to Life president, Laura Alexandria, will give an update on the organization’s accomplishments in the past year.

Don’t miss this evening of celebrating life and championing the prolife cause.

Individual seats and tables can be purchased by completing and submitting a registration form.

Select a month that your church or school would like to participate and call Grand Rapids Right to Life.
