The Pro-Life Voice Within the Democratic Party
NEW DATE: March for Life (1-27-2017)
Due to the Inauguration, the March for Life in D.C. has been pushed back one week to January 27, 2017.
We are planning to convene for breakfast at 8:30 a.m. and march as a group to the Supreme Court. Please save the date and plan on joining us if you are coming to Washington, D.C. We will have more information to follow.
We will also have a group and a meeting place at the Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco, CA, and the Choose Love Pro-Life demonstration in Los Angelos, CA, both on January 21, 2017.
The Walk for Life's goal is "to change the perceptions of a society that thinks abortion is an answer. Abortion does violence to women and to their children, both physically and emotionally." The want people to know that we all "deserve better than abortion."
The Choose Love event celebrates the beauty and dignity of every human life from conception to natural death. At the walk in downtown LA there will be music, speakers and food.
If you would like to help coordinate our activities around the March for Life, please contact Kristen Day.

Our Michigan Chapter made  a valient effort to modifiy their State Party platform. They are continuing the good fight to preach inclusion for those who believe support for pregnant women -as contrasted with paying for their abortions - should be our main focus.
John O'Neill, who is a candidate for County Commission, had the following published in the Leelanau News.
To the Editor,
"A Pro-life Democrat, I value a healthy society: decent jobs, robust business climate, equitable pay, homes workers can afford, care for the earth. I prompted local Democrats to declare: “We respect the conscience of each American and recognize that members of our party have deeply held and sometimes differing positions on issues of personal conscience, such as abortion and the death penalty. We recognize the diversity of views as a
source of strength, and we welcome into our ranks all Americans who may
hold differing positions on these and other issues.” I will bring such values
to the commission.
