Too many women are being harmed by abortion in the state of Missouri!
Put your pro-life convictions into action at the Show Me Life Pro-life Action Day. In a 4 year period, at least 23 ambulances have been called to the Planned Parenthood Clinic in St. Louis. 
Mark your calendars for the Show Me Life Pro-life Action Day.  Join Us on March 11, 2014 in the Missouri State Capitol to lobby for important pro-life legislation. Your participation is critical.  Unborn babies, vulnerable women and embryos in the first days of life need your help!

Call 314-434-4900 or email mrl.eastern@yahoo.com to arrange for transportation for St. Louis, St. Charles, Washington county, Lincoln county, Warrensburg and surrounding areas. Call the state office 573-635-5110 or email righttolife@missourilife.org to inquire about transportation from other parts of the state.

Legislative Update

Action Alert!
Please call your Representative and Senator and let them know that you strongly support passage of the abortion clinic inspection legislation, SB 770 and HB 1478.  

Link to Representative's Phone Numbers:  http://www.house.mo.gov/member.aspx 
Link to Senator's Phone Numbers:  http://www.senate.mo.gov/14info/SenateRoster.htm

SB 770 and HB 1478 will place in statute stricter inspection requirements and more accountability for abortion clinics.  It will establish statutory requirements rather than relying solely on regulations for oversight of abortion clinics and will be less subject to the agenda of a particular agency or political party.

Atrocities at abortion clinics in Pennsylvania and Texas and multiple violations of health requirements at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood facility where there have been multiple 911 calls over the last 4 years illustrate the need for this legislation. 

We thank Senator Wayne Wallingford, Sponsor of SB 770 and Representative Kathryn Swan, Sponsor of HB 1478 and all the co-sponsors for working to move this important life-saving legislation forward and help get it to the Governor's desk.  HB 1478 has over 100 co-sponsors.
