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,

Just when you think that you know what comes next, everything changes!

Conventional wisdom declared that Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in November, but this time around, that wisdom was not so wise!

We will have a new president in January and he has promised to nominate pro-life candidates to the Supreme Court (the first one will simply be a replacement for Justice Scalia and will not change the balance of the court), and he has nominated a number of candidates to his cabinet who are pro-life.

If he is able to do the things he has promised, we can reasonably hope for some good pro-life accomplishments. He will face huge opposition so it is up to us, pro-life professionals, to let him know we take him at his word and encourage him to protect human life.

A short message (email is best) to Mr. Trump, thanking him for his pro-life promises and encouraging him to follow through are certainly in order. The email address for the President is Let him hear from you with words of encouragement and support because you can be very sure that those who support abortion, whose businesses will feel the pinch if the abortion rate falls and who characterize the deliberate taking of the unborn child’s life as “like a miscarriage” will be filling his inbox with demands for more encouragement and support.

On another topic, the American Medical Association will be meeting this summer and it has been rumored that they are considering changing their position of opposition to assisted suicide to a positon of neutrality. In each state where the state medical society has made such a change, assisted suicide has passed at the next voting opportunity for that state. Please send a message to the AMA, asking that they continue to oppose assisted suicide, keeping in mind the philosophy of “first do no harm” that should guide their actions. Here is a link to their website with contact information--

Love Life!
