Our Mission:  Founded in 1973, Delaware Right to Life is the largest and most active pro-life organization in the state. Our mission is to defend innocent human life from conception to natural death. We seek to return legal protection to the unborn and to guard the sanctity of life of all those threatened by the culture of death, whether by abortion, withholding of care, or euthanasia. Education is the focus of our outreach.

Upcoming Spring Events – Save the Dates!


Tuesday, June 8, 2021 – Candlelight Walk for Life, Bicentennial Park in Milford, DE, 7 p.m.
  • ABOUT: An estimated 6,500 tiny boys and girls will have lost their lives to abortion in the 4 years following the passage of Delaware Senate Bill 5, the “Late Term Abortion Bill.” Their lives were cut short, but their memory lives on in us. Come on the anniversary of Senate Bill 5 and light a candle in memory of these 6,500 tiny humans. Signs and LED candles are provided.
  • Bicentennial Park in Milford

The walk is organized by “Candlelight,” a private organization registered with the Delaware Department of Elections. Walking and free speech events have inherent risks. By participating, you and your family agree to participate at your own risk and to not hold Candlelight, its organizers and volunteers, or the City of Milford liable.


Thursday, June 10, 2021, 1 – 2 p.m., Delaware for Life Unity Rally at Legislative Hall in Dover

We are looking for 1,000 people to gather at Legislative Hall on June 10 in a show of pro-life unity as we stand up for the unborn!  Our voices are not being heard and pro-life bills are being shelved in committee despite a HUGE cry from the grass roots to LISTEN to the TRUTH.  Activist legislators seek to dismiss regulations to protect women by blocking vital information for informed decision-making.  Tell them we have had enough and they do NOT represent our views!  DRTL is partnering with the Delaware Family Policy Council for this important event.  Please register at their website:  https://www.delawarefamilies.org/rsvp-life-rally48469699


Legislative Update

Unfortunately, Rep. Collins Ultrasound Women’s Right to Know bill, was NOT voted out of committee. Thank you to ALL who testified at the virtual hearing on 3/17.  We are up against seemingly insurmountable odds with the Democratic majority in both houses.  (See above about the power of prayer.)  Richardson will be introducing the same bill in the Senate at some point this session; he is hoping for an in-person hearing.  To support his efforts, we MUST spread the word and show up in numbers either virtually or in person.  Gloria Huber is circulating a petition to present to legislators in FAVOR of the bill and we will be posting a version of it on our website soon.  Please contact your legislators to support this bill (SB17) today!

Lastly, we believe Rep. Baumbach, emboldened by progressive Democrats in the General Assembly, will continue his march for death by again bringing up his assisted suicide bill. Please contact legislators to OPPOSE this death warrant on vulnerable populations.  If you haven’t already signed the petition, please do so below!


HELP US COLLECT 3,000 SIGNATURES TO DEFEAT ASSISTED SUICIDE IN DELAWARE!
PETITION TO THE DELAWARE LEGISLATURE

We in the community oppose “Medical Aid in Dying” for the primary reasons that it abandons persons in their moment of need and isolates them from family and trusted physicians.  The bill, both lethal and unnecessary, acts to impose assisted suicide on the citizens of Delaware and compromises the integrity of the state’s health care system.  It seeks to kill, rather than care.

This dangerous legislation is part of a larger national agenda through the pro-assisted suicide organization, Compassion and Choices, to enact such laws in as many states as possible.  It is opposed by leading medical communities, including the Delaware Medical Society, which calls it “fundamentally inconsistent with our role as physicians and healers.”  Its safeguards, as written, are unable to be policed and open the door to not only substandard care for patients, but corruption of our medical and legal systems.

Delaware citizens facing a terminal diagnosis and who may yet have years to live, deserve our support, love and care.  We urge the legislature and the governor to reject assisted suicide, physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia, as enshrined in Medical Aid in Dying.

Please fill out the form below. We will present your objection to the legislature and the governor.

HELP SAVE A LIFE

So many women who aborted say later, “IF ONLY someone had been outside, I wouldn’t have done it.”  Our presence on the sidewalks outside Planned Parenthood is crucial and may be the difference between life and death.  We counsel, offer support, and witness to the humanity of the unborn. The walk towards an abortion clinic is the last chance for so many women to change their minds and start over.  PLEASE JOIN US at these locations and times:

  • Planned Parenthood, Dover, 805 Governor’s Ave., Thursday & Friday mornings, 9 AM – noon.

  • Planned Parenthood, Wilmington, 7th and Shipley Streets, Tuesdays, 9 AM – 11 AM.

  • Contact Dave at Horace33@aol.com for Wilmington locations and Jim at Jim@cordie.us for Dover.
