Missouri Right to Life's "Show Me Life" Action Day and Rally a Resounding Success


The crowd filled the Capitol Rotunda.

Close to 400 of committed pro-lifers visited the Missouri capital Tuesday, March 11th to show support for the Missouri Right to Life Legislative agenda. The rally's MC was MRL President Pam Fichter. The keynote speaker, Susan Jaramillo gave a moving testimony to the effects of abortion in her life and the future threats to the sanctity of Life. Other Speakers included Speaker of the House, Tim Jones, who has sponsored pro-life legislation and has been instrumental in helping to move other pro-life bills. Many other legislators were present and also spoke of their pro-life convictions.

MRL Rally Coincides With Abortion Bills' Passage
On the heels of Missouri Right to Life's "Show Me Life" Pro-life Action Day, the House gave final approval Wednesday to HB 1307 and HB 1192. And yesterday, the House also gave approval to HB 1132. These bills will save babies and protect all women, both adults and minors, from abortion clinics seeking to make a profit on an abortion.
