Missouri Lifeline 5/27/16
MRL Responds to St. Louis Fire Department Report on Planned Parenthood   
The following is a statement from Steve Rupp, President of Missouri Right to Life:

The St. Louis Fire Department released a report of the medical emergency calls placed by the St. Louis Planned Parenthood abortion mill from 1/1/09 through 4/6/16. This report was released in the settlement of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed against it by Operation Rescue in 2013. The report showed that 58 emergency calls were placed requiring ambulance services at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood abortion mill. Many of these calls were due to life-threatening conditions. On May 13, 2016, an additional ambulance was seen at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood. Clearly, the facility is a danger to women, as well as their babies.

Missouri Right to Life has written and lobbied for the passage of a law that would require more detailed reporting and regular, frequent, and thorough inspections and audits of abortion mills. These requirements will hold the abortion industry accountable. Sadly, this legislation has not passed both the House and the Senate.

There is no sign that Planned Parenthood will cease its barbaric practices. How many more women will be harmed before the Missouri legislature sends this bill to the Governor?
So Many Sacrifices  
So many sacrifices have been made in the establishment and defense of this country and the freedoms on which it was founded. The men who signed the Declaration of Independence did not ask what public service could do for them but put their very lives at risk. Let us pray for such statesmen today.  

There have been so many sacrifices around the world made by our military and their families. One only need look at the military cemeteries in the U.S. and in foreign lands.

This Memorial Day weekend let us spend some time remembering those sacrifices, being thankful, and praying for those who have sacrificed so much.

Our country stands at a crossroads in deciding the type of government we will have. Will we have a republic that values the free-market system and respects the right of each person to practice their faith as they are called to do? Or, will we become a socialist state where the government controls our industry, our faith lives and our freedom of speech?

Let us pray that America will continue to be a beacon for freedom in the world. That Americans will make the right decisions in the coming months as they contemplate what kind of people and philosophies will determine the future of this country.
