Jackson Right to Life, formerly Jackson Citizen’s for Life, was established in 1975 as a response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision legalizing abortion in 1973. At Jackson Right to Life, we believe that every human life is valuable and deserves protection from fertilization to natural death. We are a non-sectarian and non-partisan organization affiliated with Right to Life of Michigan, and our goal is to advocate for the protection of human life through legal means of advocacy and education.
Our primary objective is to achieve the passage and ratification of a Human Life Amendment. This would ensure that all human beings, regardless of age or circumstance, have the right to life protected by law. We also seek to educate the public on identified Right to Life issues, motivate them to action, and encourage community support for programs and legislation that foster respect and protection for human life.
At Jackson Right to Life, we work on behalf of the most vulnerable members of our society – defenseless or vulnerable human beings, both born and unborn. Our identified life issues include abortion, infanticide, human embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, and assisted suicide. With over one-thousand local members, we strive to make abortion unthinkable and encourage respect for all human life.
If you are interested in supporting the activities of Jackson Right to Life, we would love to hear from you. Our board meets monthly, and we are always looking for enthusiastic and passionate individuals to join us.
There are many opportunities to volunteer with Jackson Right to Life, including serving as a church representative for your church, contacting legislators and participating in Get Out the Vote election activities, representing our organization at the Jackson County Fair JRL Booth, praying in front of Planned Parenthood, joining the Jackson Area Life Chain, and attending the JRL Annual Dinner and JRL Education Fairs.
Join us in our mission to promote respect for all human life, and make a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable among us.
