Sarasota-Manatee Right to Life, Inc., an affiliate of the National Right to Life Committee (, is a non-profit, secular community organization established to educate the public through peaceful means regarding life issues such as abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, stem cell research and assisted suicide. SMRTL promotes the protection of the right to life of the unborn child, the elderly and the disabled by promoting legal, political, social and cultural reforms designed to ensure both the right to life and the human dignity of each person from the moment of fertilization until natural death.


Join other pro-lifers to pray for unborn babies and their moms and dads, in front of Sarasota Planned Parenthood any Tuesday, any time you wish between 10am and noon. It’s on Central Avenue between 7th and 8th streets (five blocks north of Fruitville, west of Orange). (Don’t park in business or private lots or drives. Use only city-designated street parking.) More than 140 babies have been saved from abortion by prayer and sidewalk counseling there. And support is offered to the moms and dads. If you can’t be there, pray for the babies wherever you are.

Annual dues are $20. Send to Sarasota-Manatee Right to Life, PO Box 2835,  Sarasota 34230. With your request to join, please include your name, address, phone and e-mail address.
