From the moment of conception the fertilized egg contains the essence and existence of a human being. It is our obligation to protect life from the moment of conception to the last breath of human life.

Right to Life McHenry County (RLMC) welcomes you to our new 2017 Signature Ad.

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

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.”

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.

1) It compounds tragedy.

2) It takes innocent lives.

3) It violates civil rights.

4) It punishes innocent people.

International Right to Life head hears about this organization everywhere he goes in the world

Brad Mattes

As the president of the International Right to Life Federation, I frequently travel around the world. Literally, wherever I go, people ask me about LifeSiteNews.  They are familiar with the daily email publication and website and want to know if it provides reliable information on the life issues. 

ImageI’m happy to tell them that in the past I have served on the board of directors of LifeSiteNews, primarily because they do provide accurate, up-to-the minute information.  This answer is always met with a broad smile because they too have depended upon this vital source of pro-life news.
