Help Protect Women and Unborn Children - 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 or not to have an abortion.

HB 1132 - Would increase the amount of tax credits available to pregnancy resource centers and maternity homes.

Line Item Veto - Override the line item veto of HB 1132, the budget bill to restore the increase of $500,000 for the alternative to abortion program.

To contact your legislator, go to http://senate.mo.gov/ and enter your 9 digit zip code.

Join us on Sept 10th. First, come to Selinger Center next to St. Peter Church to purchase a red MiRL t-shirt or polo shirt. Then meet in the capitol rotunda for a 9:00 am prayer service and an override rally featuring pro-life speakers at 12:00 noon.

MRL to Join Speaker Tim Jones for Press Conference on Override Effort
Missouri Right to Life will be joining Speaker Tim Jones for press conferences in:
           
Carthage, MO, Jasper County Courthouse, 10:30 a.m., Sept. 8
Springfield, MO, Pregnancy Resource Center, 1:00 p.m., Sept. 8       
Jefferson City, Pregnancy Help Center of Central MO, 1:00 p.m. Sept. 9
           
to discuss upcoming efforts to override Governor Nixon's vetoes on important pro-life measures.

"This year, Governor Nixon vetoed two of Missouri Right to Life's highest-priority bills - the 72 hour abortion reflection period extension and the expansion of the tax credit for contributions to pregnancy resource centers. These two measures are vital to ensuring Missouri continues to lead the way on pro-life legislation, and we hope that the General Assembly will override the Governor's vetoes on both when they convene for veto session.  Protecting life must be our state's number one goal," said Susan Klein, Legislative Liaison.
