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,

If any of us still wore caps (I miss them!) we would have to be sure that they were securely fastened to our heads because the winds of change are certainly blowing!!

Whether you supported Donald Trump for president or not, he is certainly creating a windstorm of change. Most of his cabinet nominees are pro-life. Vice-president Pence is pro-life and even addressed the March for Life on the 27th of January. Trump’s executive order has reestablished the Mexico City Policy that prevents United States taxpayer dollars from going to foreign countries for performing or promoting abortions and he is taking steps to defund Planned Parenthood. He supports a permanent Hyde Amendment to prohibit federal payment for abortions in this country and he has nominated a committed pro-life judge, Neil Gorsuch, to fill the seat of Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia.

None of these things will happen without the support and encouragement of those of us who are pro-life. We have waited so very many years for an opportunity like this so we must not waste it. I am encouraging you to express your opinions on these matters to your elected officials. These men and women have been elected to represent you so let them know what you expect of them. Email is best (letters get delayed because of security concerns). If you need an email address, you can look your elected official up on his/her website or call the office and we can help you.

We need your input on ideas for our next conference. It is time for the board of MNFL to start planning for the conference and we want the topic to be something that you want to hear about. Please call the office with your suggestions, 248-816-8489.

We live in interesting times---let us all pray that they lead to a time of protection and dignity for all human life.

Love Life!
