Welcome to Our Website

nurseOur History

Michigan Nurses For Life began independently in the hearts of two nurses in the Metro Detroit area in the fall of 1995. One was a LPN; the other was a RN.

Both called the Educational Center For Life in Oakland County to see if there was such a group already in existence. Both were aware there was a National Association of Prolife Nurses, but wanted to be involved in something local. The answer was “no”, but they were given each other's phone number.

After that meeting and a great deal of work, which included developing the purpose, structure, marketing plan, and activities for the organization, MNFL emerged as a vibrant organization.

After a number of phone conversations, the two planned to meet one rainy fall evening in 1995, at a local restaurant. Another nurse, who was a member of a local prolife nursing group that dissolved in the late 1980's, joined them.

Michigan Nurses For Life has now grown to a membership of over 200 health care professionals. Each year an Educational Conference is held and Contact Hours are offered. A great deal has been accomplished, but there is so much more to be done!

Dear Colleague,

By now, many of you have received a letter from me asking that you consider having your name listed on the Nurse’s page of Right to Life-LIFESPAN’s Resource Book.

This book is given to all the guests at LIFESPAN’s annual Celebrate Life Dinner. It contains dozens of articles and legislative reporting’s about pro-life issues and ads from various organizations and businesses.

Why is it important that we pro-life nurses have a representation in this book? Because our profession and that of the medical doctors and allied health care professionals are looking pretty bad in the reporting of the main stream media.

Disposing of children with Down Syndrome simply because of that condition, or disposing, read that killing, of babies because of gender is being subtly encouraged by health care professional. We are no longer speaking of assisted suicide or euthanasia but now it is called “aid in dying”. No matter what it is called, the result is the same—a dead patient.

Surveys and questionnaires are being sent to doctors and nurses and the replies coming back indicate that the respondents feel it is permissible to place DNR orders on the charts of seriously ill children without parental consent.

Society is beginning to believe and accept that nurses and other health care professionals find that delivering death rather than promoting life and health should be part of our nursing care plans!

This page in the Resource Book should be filled with those of us who are members of MNFL so that readers will see that at least we know that we support life---that we seek to help heal and to provide comfort and dignity when we cannot. Your name, as you would like to see it printed, and a small donation for printing costs, will let all who see it know that there are still nurses who revere life, who will protect the weak and defenseless and hold true to the ideals that brought us to nursing in the first place.

Love Life!
