Here's What Your Help Accomplished!
Rochester Area Right To Life
Wow! We're really behind in updating this page - 10 years!
However, here's a quick note:
The library and the newsletter are still going strong. The newsletter goes to over 10,000 people a year. But there's something new. The newsletter and the library both now include information on the issue that wasn't an issue in 1997 - stem cell research and treatment. RARTL is opposed to embryonic stem cell research, which destroys small human beings and does not have a success record in humans. RARTL is in favor of adult stem cell research, which has resulted in treatment for 72 human diseases and conditions as of July, 2007. It includes umbilical cord cells, amnionic stem cells, and stem cells you carry in your own body. Adult stem cell research destroys no human life.
Our booth now goes to multiple health fairs and other events around the county. Plus, we go to any church that invites us. (Would your church like us to come?) Each time the booth goes out, we have a large selection of brochures that is available to the public.
We have for two years been able to provide leaflets to use as bulletin inserts to interested churches in the Rochester area. Many were able to use the brochures on multiple Sundays.
We have run radio and print ads advocating for the unborn babies and their mothers.
This ad appeared as 4- second spots in movie theaters in the Rochester area. 24 screens with 4 shows a day each for an average audience of 100 people per showing for 365 days = over 3.5 million exposures to the idea that life is sacred. Thanks to all who helped!
A special thanks to a special donor who paid for the bookings at the theaters.
We showed at the Regal Theatres in Henrietta Marketplace Mall (6 theatres), Culver Ridge in Irondequoit, and Eastview Mall, which is at the junction of Wayne, Monroe, and Ontario counties.
