Action Needed: Veto Session Rally - Sept 10th - Join Us!
Call your Senator and Representative today! Ask them to vote to override Governor Nixon's veto of:

HB 1307 - Would guarantee that a woman has 72 hours to reflect on whether to have an abortion.

HB 1132 - Would increase the amount of tax credits available to pregnancy resource centers and maternity homes.
These tax credits are saving lives! 

Line Item Veto - With the override of HB 1132 the $500,000 vetoed in the budget bill would need to be restored by overriding the line item veto.

To find contact information for your legislators all you need is your 9 digit zip. Go to http://senate.mo.gov/
at lower left use legislator look up search.

Join us for all the excitement on Sept 10th. First, come to Selinger Center next to St. Peter Church to purchase a red Missouri Right to Life t-shirt or polo shirt. Then meet in the capitol rotunda for the override rally featuring pro-life speakers at 12:00 noon.

These regulations, the seventh and eighth on this subject since 2011, are not balanced, and they are not respectful of those with sincerely held religious beliefs....read more.

 

Tax-funded PBS to air 'After Tiller' documentary glorifying late-term abortionists
Pro-life activists are up in arms after the taxpayer-funded Public Broadcasting System (PBS) announced it will air the pro-abortion documentary "After Tiller" - named for George Tiller, the notorious late-term abortionist who boasted of killing more than 60,000 unborn babies before he was gunned down in 2009...read more.

 

Science, religion, and the question of when life begins  
Is there no scientific answer to when life begins? That depends, of course, on what one means by "life."  Do you mean biological life, specifically the life of a human organism?  Or are you speaking of "life" to mean a particular moral status?...read more.
