Dear Friend of Life,

Welcome to this week's edition of the Missouri Lifeline. 


As the dark clouds of immorality and the culture of death surround us, it's easy to become fearful and even frantic. How could we have let the world become what it has become? Why has God allowed this to happen? It surely is how the apostles and disciples felt on that Good Friday so many years ago. They no doubt asked themselves, "How could this have happened? This man we believed would lead us to victory has died. Fear and confusion has gripped us."

What would God have said to them? What did he say to them 2,000 years ago? Fear Not. Peace Be With You. 

And then, in the midst of all their fear, comes the Resurrection of the Lord. And that resurrected Lord lives with us still. He is here in our midst. Fear Not. Peace Be With You. Put Your Faith in the Lord.  Die with him and be born again in the Kingdom of God.

Jesus is real. The Resurrection is real. Fear Not. Peace Be With You.

Missouri Right to Life wishes you and your families a blessed and peace-filled Easter. He is Risen! Alleluia! 

Pam Fichter
President, MRL

Governor Nixon has announced that he will sign SB 20 Friday morning, March 29.  Please call the Governor and thank him for signing SB 20, 15 & 19 (this is one bill) which provides limited tax credits to those who donate to our Pregnancy Resource Centers.  This bill supports the fund-raising efforts of Pregnancy Resource Centers in order for them to provide help to women in crisis pregnancies.

Priority Pro-Life Legislation
SB 175 & HB 400 - Establishes the requirements for the administration and regulation of RU-486 and other abortion-inducing drugs and chemicals and would ban web-cam abortions in MO. When web-cam abortions began in Iowa they went from approximately 5 abortion clinics to 17. We do not want this to happen in Missouri!

SB 175 is sponsored by Senator Wayne Wallingford. Hearing Completed in the Senate Judiciary and Civil and Criminal Jurisprudence Committee, February 18. Bill is Still in Committee. Click here to see the memo delivered to Senator Bob Dixon, Chairman and Senator Ed Emery, Vice-Chairman of the Senate Judiciary and Civil and Criminal Jurisprudence Committee Requesting that SB 175 be Voted Out of Committee and Reported in to the Senate.

HB 400 is sponsored by Representative Jeanie Riddle and 114 other House members (a veto proof bi-partisan majority). Hearing Completed in the House Health Care Policy Committee, March 14, voted Do Pass by Rules Committee and sent to the Speaker of the House.
