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 Colleagues,

I have never been so proud to be your president as I was when the people who attended Right to Life-LIFESPAN’s Celebrate Life dinner in May saw the Nurse’s page in their Resource Book.

As you may all recall, I invited you all to be part of the Resource Book published by LIFESPAN by listing your names on the Nurse’s Page in that book. YOU FILLED THE PAGE!!!

More than twice as many of you as last year signed onto this year’s page and people noticed. More than once I heard LIFESPAN’s guests talk about “all the nurses” who signed their names.

I was very proud, but I was not surprised. Nurses are frequently on the front line of the assaults we see on human life and it is often their care and compassion and respect for that life that makes the difference between a person living and dying.

As we see an ever increasing push toward involving health care professionals in euthanasia, physician assisted suicide and terminal sedation, pro-life nurses will frequently make the difference between allowing natural death to occur and artificially bringing about that death.

Congratulations Pro-Life nurses---you presence on our page made a difference!

Love Life!
