Michigan March for Life less than two weeks away

By: Ed Strach - Thu, Oct 26, 2023 7:00 AM


We are less than TWO weeks away from the Michigan March for Life at the State Capitol Building in Lansing!  We are thrilled to partner with Right to Life of Michigan for the Michigan March for Life.  Please join us on Wednesday November 8th to stand for Michigan’s most vulnerable citizens.


In a state that once proudly championed the sanctity of life, and protected women and the unborn, Michigan’s course has taken a disheartening turn. In the wake of Roe’s overturn, pro-abortion politicians and lobbyists have worked hard to turn Michigan into one of the most pro-abortion states in the country.


That is why we need you, your family, friends, and neighbors to make your voices heard in defense of the unborn!


sdSchedule of events is listed below. Our Worthy State Deputy Christopher A. Kolomjec will lead the Pledge of Allegiance.









Please RSVP here
