Focus on Life Benefit Dinner a success

MANISTEE — Rebecca Kiessling, attorney and pro life advocate, spoke to an overflow audience recently at the 10th annual Focus on Life Benefit Dinner sponsored by Right to Life of Manistee County.

Kiessling, conceived in rape by a serial rapist, would have been aborted if abortion had not been against the law at that time. She makes the case that all of human life deserves to be protected from conception to natural death and not based on the circumstances of one’s conception.

Logan Miller, a 10th grade student from Manistee Catholic Central and first place winner of the Mason-Manistee County Right to Life Oratory Contest, gave a presentation of his winning speech “Planned Parenthood and Pro Choice Movement: A Side Track from a Better Future.”

Dale Kowalkowski welcomed everyone and served as emcee for the evening.

Randy Royston, Michigan Right to Life Developmental coordinator, gave an update on the Michigan Right to Life Agenda for the coming year.

A plated dinner was catered by Zupin Catering. Manistee Catholic Central students served as the wait staff. The students were recognized and commended for the outstanding job they have done in this capacity for the past 10 years.

Dinner music was provided by John Pomeroy.

A donation was made to Lighthouse Pregnancy Care Center by Right to Life of Manistee County.

The evening closed with prayer offered by Myra Lautner.
