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,

For weeks we have been subjected to speeches, demonstrations and marches with the participants proclaiming that this or that life is important, that it matters.

I must admit that I am rather confounded by these slogans. The concept is simple---ALL life matters.

As nurses, as prolifers—as human beings--- it should be abundantly clear that all human life matters. It should not be qualified, or quantified or characterized as one kind of life or another.

That is the message we should be sending to our society. As health care providers we should not, and must not, decide that one life is more important, more worthy of our skills and compassion than any other life. All life is worthy of dignity and protection. That is the message Michigan Nurses for Life tries to convey.

It is time to renew your membership with MNFL and there was never a time when we needed you more than we do today. Your membership will help us to be sure that human life is not reduced to a slogan, or a political speech, or, God forbid, a hash tag (#).

Please renew your membership today.

Love Life!


“I wish it need not have happened in my time”, said Frodo.
“So do I”, said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times.
But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to
do with the time that is given to us.”
