Michigan Nurses     For Life
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,

I am really glad that the warm weather is approaching. I like summer much better than winter!

You have probably been reading many articles on the determined efforts of those who support assisted suicide and euthanasia to promote their agenda.

The news from Europe is really rather frightening. In several countries, the elderly, the mentally ill, those not terminally ill and little children are being euthanized sometimes without their request or permission. In some cases, seriously ill children are being denied care. In our own country, insurance companies are refusing to pay for transfers from one hospital to another for seriously ill patients and are also refusing to pay for drugs or treatments that offer real hope for extending lives. However, in at least two cases, when transfers and medications were refused, assisted suicide drugs were offered as an alternative for treatment.

This kind of “care” is certainly not something I would want for myself or my loved ones. If euthanasia is being imposed on the vulnerable now, how long will it be before it is imposed on lives “deemed not worthy to be lived” by the government? Can’t happen here? Don’t bet the farm!

Our conference on October 7, 2017 will find Nancy Valka, RN, a member of the board of the National Association of Pro-Life Nurses addressing these very issues. Nancy has been a longtime opponent of Physician Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia and is a nationally known speaker on the subject. She has a wealth of information to share which might help us to slow the train wreck of Euthanasia. Jason Negi will be there also to help us understand the legalities of end of life decisions and then both Jason and Nancy will answer your questions.

Mark your calendars now—this could be one of the most important conferences MNFL has hosted in a long time.

Enjoy your summer!

Love Life!
