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,

In September I have been asked to make a presentation at a local church on End of Life issues. I have been gathering articles and information for this event, which will deal heavily with so called assisted suicide. I say “so called” because in the last couple of years, the effort to make this action acceptable to the majority of our country has been monumental and comes in a whole host of different labels. “Rational suicide”, “end of life compassion”, “self-determination of death” and, believe it or not, digicide (like homicide but with dignity added on?).

I have come to a couple of conclusions. As predicted during the early days of the pro-abortion movement, as clearly as night follows day, if we can kill before birth, we can kill after birth; the idea of “rational suicide” will become not an aberration but a requirement and it is not the doctor who will be expected to violate the rarely observed Hippocratic Oath but the nurse who will be told to follow the order.

I still have a long way to go before I am prepared to make my presentation, but if what I am reading is any indication, we are in for very troubling times.

On a different topic, although MNFL cannot endorse or recommend political parties or individuals, I am sure that all of us have been wondering what we will do next November. Personally, I am looking past the individuals and towards the Supreme Court. The next president may very well have as many as three opportunities to nominate candidates to the Supreme Court. Whoever that is will determine if we have another 30-40 years of what we have now, or if we will have the chance to change the direction of our nation.

Love Life!
