Missouri Lifeline 12/4/15
Activist Judge Chooses to Ignore Missouri Law and Sides With Planned Parenthood
Judge Nanette K. Laughrey has blocked the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) from revoking Planned Parenthood's license.

The good news, so far, is that the University of Missouri has stood by their decision to revoke the "refer and follow" privileges of abortionist Dr. Colleen McNicholas. So, there can be no abortions at the Columbia clinic at this time.

However, Planned Parenthood in Columbia can keep their doors open. DHSS issued the business license for PP to operate with the stipulation that they would have a physician on staff that had hospital privileges.

On Wednesday, Dec. 2 Judge Nanette extended the temporary restraining order against DHSS till late December. More to come.

Legislative Update

December 4, 2015
Pre-Filing of Legislation for 2016 Legislative Session
 
The Second Regular Session of the 98th Missouri General Assembly will kick off at 12:00 noon on Wednesday, January 6, 2016.
 
Pre-filing of legislation for the 2016 session began Tuesday, December 1, 2015. At this time there have been 215 bills and 15 various resolutions filed in the Senate.  And, there have been 273 bills and 6 various resolutions filed in the House.
 
Your Missouri Right to Life Legislative Team has worked with legislators on pro-life bills to file for the 2016 legislative session. We have also begun reviewing all bills filed and will be reporting weekly in the lifelines during the legislative session.  We will update you on bills that have either a positive or negative impact on our ability to protect innocent human lives at every stage of life and development. 
 
Please read these updates. Your knowledge on these important life issues is important for when you speak with your legislators. Your involvement with your legislator is very important!
 
When we put out a legislative alert for phone calls, e-mails and letters to legislators you need to be ready. Your involvement is important to the passage of good solid pro-life legislation.
 
MARK YOUR CALENDARS NOW
Two of the most important events that you can plan for in 2016 will be to attend Pro-Life Action Days on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 and April 5, 2016 at the Missouri State Capitol.
 
Please print off the "Show Me Life" Action Day flyer and distribute to your pro-life friends, family and church members. http://www.missouririghttolife.org/assets/lobby_day_flyer2016.pdf 
 
IMPORTANT NOTE:
Because of the work of the House and Senate Investigation Committees regarding all the videos on the buying and selling of baby body parts and the abortion clinic license for the Planned Parenthood clinic in Columbia, passage of pro-life legislation is essential to the safety of babies and women in Missouri. Your attendance at lobby days is essential to the passage of solid pro-life legislation and defunding Planned Parenthood!
 
Thank you for your commitment to protecting innocent human lives! Your support of Missouri Right to Life ensures protections for innocent human lives through the legislative process!

See you in Jefferson City on February 9 and April 5 at the "Show Me Life Action Days"!

Hold My Hand Campaign
The Archdiocese of St. Louis, along with other partners, has launched a campaign, "#HoldMyHand," to stop Planned Parenthood and the atrocities it commits in our country.

The goal of this campaign is to build on the momentum of the Center for Medical Progress videos that expose Planned Parenthood's actions in order to end public support for Planned Parenthood through: (1) a social media campaign to put a face on the pro-life movement and give a united voice to people who are pro-life, pro-woman, and pro-healthcare; and (2) an email campaign that gives people specific ways of becoming more active in the pro-life movement.

Take a moment to visit holdmyhand.net and check out the resources to spread the message. We encourage you to:
