MRL Vice President Responds to Biased Article
In response to the September 18th lead editorial in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Missouri Right to Life vice-president, Steve Rupp, wrote: 

"Wow! The editorial "Sex success story" (Sept. 16) was so bold that it defies belief. Planned Parenthood is given credit for the drop in teen births. Think about that for a moment. Of course they can claim credit: They kill the children before they are born!"

Members Thank MRL for Their Leadership on the Girl Scouts
Missouri Right to Life has received many messages like the one below in response to our policy statement on the Girl Scouts:

"I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your well documented policy statement on the connection between Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood.  As a mother of three daughters, I tried for years to do research and find out "what all the controversy" was about.  All I found was a bunch of very opinionated web sites (on both sides!).

When I received the email with your policy statement, I read it immediately.  To date, it is the best documented, objective research I have found.  I have forwarded it to countless other concerned mothers. 

Thank you for the research you completed and for releasing it for our use!

Mom from Lee's Summit"
