What is the "Focus on Life Dinner"?

Every year each Right to Life Affiliate sponsors a dinner for Michigan Right to Life to

  • update the local affiliate on current issues, particularly legislative issues

  • sponsor a speaker to discuss life issues (see below) and

  • seek contributions to support:

    • media campaigns placing Pro-Life television commercials across the state along with radio commercials in most major markets

    • help Right to Life of Michigan work with more than 150 pregnancy centers, adoption agencies and counseling organizations to provide women and families with medical, material and emotional support

    • provide a 24 hour help line, 1-800-57-WOMAN 

What type of advertising does the funding support?

Here are some examples:
