Missouri Lifeline 4/1/16
Do You Want to Defund Planned Parenthood?

We need you in Jefferson City next Tuesday, April 5 for the second Pro-Life Action Day of 2016!!

Registration begins at 10:00 am with time to lobby legislators on priority pro-life legislation before and after the noon rally.

Priority legislation this year includes defunding Planned Parenthood, required annual abortion clinic inspections and passing a law to ensure that baby body parts from abortions are not sold for research.

Guest speaker at the noon rally will be Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood director who now travels across the globe sharing her story, educating the public, advocating for the unborn and reaching out to abortion clinic staff who still work in the industry. 

Contact the Missouri Right to Life State Office, 573.635.5110, or visit www.missourilife.org for transportation and additional information.

We hope to see you all there. Don't forget to wear RED for LIFE!
