The greatest sin of humans, it would seem, would be to return that gift ungratefully and unopened.”

We hope you enjoy the new look and format!
RLMC would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have faithfully participated in our efforts, year after year, to be a voice for those who have none. Well over 59 million babies have lost their lives to abortion since 1973 and the tragic Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision! Gratefully, the statistics indicate a downward trend in the number of abortions. Hence, we look forward with great hope that soon we will see a drastic reduction because many pro-life legislators are now determined to be stronger voices for life than ever before!
Our local effort at reaching out to our McHenry County citizens has been successful, in large part, due to the wonderful participation of our pastors and local churches. To each and every one of you, we offer our heartfelt thanks! All the volunteers who spend time in the actual collection of signatures play a key role and to you, too, we extend our deepest gratitude!
Our mission will not be complete until all human life is respected and protected from the moment of conception until natural death. The goal and purpose of Right to Life McHenry County is to move hearts and minds to pursue protection for endangered innocent human life.

President Trump restores policy preventing organizations that promote abortion overseas from receiving U.S. Foreign Aid
Pro-life President Donald Trump
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump today took executive action to restore a key pro-life policy, sometimes called the “Mexico City Policy.”
The policy announced this morning is similar to a policy that had been in place in Republican administrations since 1984, when it was announced by authority of President Reagan at an international population-control conference in Mexico City.
Under that policy, in order to be eligible for
certain types of foreign aid, a private
organization must sign a contract promising not
to perform abortions (except to save the
mother’s life or in cases of rape or incest),
not to lobby to change the abortion laws of host
countries, or otherwise “actively promote
abortion as a method of family planning.”
Alabama Supreme Court unanimously recognizes personhood of unborn children
January 4, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — A unanimous opinion handed down the last day of 2016 by the Alabama Supreme Court is the latest in a growing body of state law extending personhood and the equal protection of the law to pre-born children in Alabama.
The personhood of the pre-born from the moment of conception has now been recognized by the Supreme Court of Alabama as it relates to the Homicide Act, the chemical endangerment statute and the Wrongful Death Act.The facts of the case in Stinnett v. Kennedy revolve around the death of the pre-born child of Ms. Kimberly Stinnett due to the alleged malpractice of an obstetrician, Dr. Karla Kennedy.
The main question faced by the Alabama Supreme Court was whether the Alabama Wrongful Death Act applied to pre-born children harmed by medical negligence before viability. Under review was the fact that during the trial, the lower trial court ... More ...

United Nations Committee Affirms
David A. Grimes
In a landmark case, Peru has compensated a woman for denying her a medically indicated abortion. In 2001, K.L. was a 17-year-old who was diagnosed as having a fetus with anencephaly at 14 weeks’ gestation. As described below, this fetal anomaly is routinely lethal. Although abortion was legal in Peru in this circumstance, a hospital director refused her request for an abortion. She was forced to continue her pregnancy and deliver the doomed fetus, which survived only four days. Working with human rights lawyers, K.L. filed a complaint with the United Nations Human Rights Committee, based in Geneva. In 2005, the Committee concluded that Peru had violated several articles of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and it ordered financial compensation to K.L. Fifteen years after the incident, reparations were finally made for Peru’s “cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment.” This marked the first time a United Nations Committee had held a country accountable for failing to ensure access to safe, legal abortion.
