MCL, for purposes of clarity and unity, changed our name to Right to Life of Michigan (RLM).
RLM opened a legislative office to put more focus on advancing prolife legislation. The first main goal was banning tax-funded abortions through Medicaid. These efforts would continue through 17 gubernatorial vetoes and several failed veto override votes. During those years the state financed an average of 19,000 abortions per year.
