Who We Are
Right to Life of Michigan (RLM), our 83 affiliates, and thousands of volunteers from all walks of life seek to build a society which welcomes and supports life at all stages.
With life advocates and volunteers in every community, extensive educational resources, and long-standing partnerships with many of the state’s approximately 100 Pregnancy Resource Centers, we aim to be a lifeline to you and your community. RLM offers resources, staff experts, and volunteers committed to help you build a practical path forward bringing hope and happiness in making a choice for life.
The broad life ethic upon which we draw characterizes the great movements of history and represents the best of humanity. It invites us to reject the failed, dangerous ideologies which suggest individual or societal ills are born from “the other” – “the other” race, religion, gender, ethnicity…or stage in life. This ethic has given us hope and led us to victory on behalf of the oppressed in otherwise dark hours. And, today, this same life ethic thrives throughout communities, schools, and churches in our state.
We are here to stand with you. No one in Michigan should feel they are alone when faced with a decision for life: a personal decision, a consideration to help a friend, a hope to educate your school or community or just a question to learn more. We aim to walk alongside you.
At Right to Life of Michigan, we are committed to affirming the best of our movement’s traditions, to peacefully advocating for the right to life of all in our human family, to closing gaps that may exist between principles and practices, while facing, with vision and determination, the challenges presented to women today. We do this through education and training sessions, community events, legislation, and political activism.
Your humanity and the humanity of the frightened woman or girl and her growing unborn child, or the disabled neighbor or family friend, or the frail grandmother or terminally ill husband is not in question. May we achieve a society in which our choices reflect this beautiful reality.
