Independence Day Weekend -- Celebrate Life! 
We celebrate the wisdom of our founders when they signed their names and pledged their sacred honor to these words in the preamble to the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men . . .

Likewise, we pledge our commitment to restoring this sacred right to life of all Americans, born and unborn.

 

The Passing of a Pro-Life Champion
It is with sorrow that we say goodbye to our good friend, Mildred Tichacek, long-time pro-life warrior and Eastern Region board member. We know the thousands of babies that Mildred prayed to save from abortion are now praying for her. Rest in peace, good and faithful servant!  

 

Action Alert -- Keep Up Those Calls to Governor Nixon, Ask Others to Call!

The Governor has until July 14 to sign or veto this pro-life bill - If he takes no action this bill will go into effect at the end of August automatically.

If he vetoes the bill, then we will be headed to veto session in mid-September and pro-lifers will call on their legislators to override the Governor's veto.

The question here is, "Will the Governor be pro-active and sign this bill in order to protect innocent human lives?"
 
Call Governor Nixon's office and ask him to sign the following pro-life bill:
 
HB 400 - The bill to ban web-cam abortions.
 
Governor Nixon's phone number is 573-751-3222
