US Abortions Per Hour

About Right to Life of Holland Area

We Began

In August of 1972 when Proposal B, a referendum proposing abortion on demand, was brought before voters of Michigan and turned down by 62%.

Legislative Action

We participate in the legislative process so that pro-life laws are passed on behalf of unprotected and vulnerable human beings – born and unborn!

Political Action

We are involved on the political stage so the we can elect pro-life leaders who will protect innocent members of our society.


Our primary focus is education and we provide factual information on the topics of abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia; LIFE issues relevant today.

Resources Available to Help

Many women turn to abortion because they were unaware of free pregnancy help.  In MI, we have over 100 pregnancy help centers that care for women and families and they can call 1-800-57-WOMAN to find help as well.

About Abortion

You’ve heard of Roe v. Wade but do know about Doe v. Bolton? 

Doe v. Bolton was both passed at the same time in 1973 as Roe v. Wade and together means that abortion is legal, on demand throughout all 9 months of pregnancy.

Why should Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton be overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court?

To return this important issue to the American people, to those who are trouble by abortion and this extreme policy.   Fetal surgeries, 4D Ultrasounds, dismemberment abortion and fetal tissue sales have shown the humanity of the unborn in ways that were previously unknown.  Our present abortion policy is so drastic and extreme and people are ready to discuss this gruesome killing of unborn children and how the unborn child fits into our human family.

What Legal Abortion Has Led To

Legal abortion has led to making abortion so easy and acceptable that our repeat abortion rate is now more than 50% with some woman having two, three or more abortions.  As long as abortion is legal, it sends the message that abortion is right and moral. We need to provide LIFE-AFFIRMING solutions to the problems that push a woman toward abortions.

“And God said, Let us make man in our own image, in our likeness, … So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him, male and female created he them.”


“And God said, Let us make man in our own image, in our likeness, … So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him, male and female created he them.”
