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,

It has been quite a year.

The horrific practices of Planned Parenthood, involving themselves in the sale of body parts of aborted babies, was made public. First they said they didn’t do it, and then their president said they wouldn’t do it anymore, and then they said they got permission to do it. We all know about informed consent. It is absolutely necessary for good patient care. I wonder how that consent was obtained. Here is a possibility—talking to a distraught 16 year old girl, the counselor says to her, “Would you like to donate tissue from your procedure to research for things like diabetes, heart disease, and children’s disabilities. Hoping to find something good in her situation she would clearly say yes. Here is another scenario—same girl, same counselor but this time she says, “if we can find them, would you like to donate your baby’s eyes and heart to be used for research?” Somehow I think they would not say this—the young woman would probably be stunned to know her baby had eyes!

The revelations about Planned Parenthood caused both the US House and US Senate to craft a measure that would deny PP the millions of tax dollars given to it each year. When presented with the measure, Mr. Obama vetoed it. This was not a surprise, but now there is no way the administration can hide behind soft sounding words about women’s health etc. The administration of our country approves the sale of fetal body parts for research. God help us.

We have also seen a host of individuals lining up to run for the office of President in November of 2016. Clearly, pro-life people would like to see a pro-life individual in that office. But no matter who wins, those of us who seek protection for all human life will have a new opportunity to educate, advocate and inspire others to do the same. The information we bring to you in our newsletters and our conference is designed to give you the tools to do that. I am asking that you renew your membership in Michigan Nurses for Life so that we can send this information to you. The fact that you are a member also shows that you recognize that which is best about nursing—the care and respect with which we practice our profession.

Love Life!
