Three Reasons to Attend the Michigan March For Life2 min read

This fall, on Wednesday, November 8, will be the Michigan March For Life. This will begin with a Rally at the State Capitol in Lansing at 11 a.m. and end about 1 p.m.

You are encouraged to attend this March For Life with your family, friends, and fellow congregation members. Even if you have a physical limitation or disability that would make it difficult to do the March (which will only be a few blocks), you can still attend the Rally itself at the Capitol.


Three vital reasons:

First, we want to clearly demonstrate that those who advocate for the lives of our unborn babies have not abandoned the battle. We are not going away. With the passing of Proposal 3 last year, Michigan has become a state controlled by a radical pro-abortion agenda. There are some who may think that this would discourage pro-life people into giving up in our efforts to uphold the sanctity of human life. We need to show clearly that this is not the case. We will never give up. These tiny babies—little boys and girls—need us, and they need us to stand fast.

Second, it is good for us to gather together. We have been through some tough times. We all need encouragement. Gathering together—especially on behalf of the greatest human rights issue of our day—can only serve to inspire us as we continue to pray, witness, serve, and advocate for those whose lives are battered and eroded by the pro-death abortion mindset and agenda.

Third, it will be an exciting event, with several key pro-life speakers addressing the crowd. We will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our sisters and brothers from various areas of the state, and from various backgrounds, as we join together in our common desire to promote Life. More information on the speakers will follow in future news releases.

Dear fellow Lutherans and friends: We need to be there! We stand at a critical crossroads here in Michigan. It will take time to undo the damage of Proposal 3. But we faithfully stood our ground for decades as we awaited the fall of Roe v. Wade. We will not give up now. This Rally and March will be a strong statement of that truth to our fellow citizens.

Please join us for the MICHIGAN MARCH FOR LIFE as well as for a post-march event with speakers and refreshments which will take place at Hope, DeWitt (1180 W Herbison Rd). For more information, contact Pastor Paul Clark.
