Marching for Life  
The 45th annual March for Life in Washington DC on January 19 will draw hundreds of thousands of marchers from across the country including thousands of Missourians.

The March for Life is the longest, largest, consecutive public assembly in the history of the United States. On this 45th anniversary of the tragic Roe and Doe decisions, we march once again as we will every year until the promise of our founding fathers is restored to all Americans - born and unborn.

Legislative Update 
Committee Hearings began on pro-life legislation this week in the House.

The House Children and Families Committee heard HB 1383, the bill to require two custodial parent notification prior to a minor having an abortion sponsored by Rep. Rocky Miller.

Missouri statute already includes the requirement for one parent consent prior to a minor having an abortion.

The abortion industry as well as the pro-abortion democrats on the Children and Families committee argued vehemently against having two parent notification prior to a minor having an abortion. They argued that notifying two parents would put minors in danger and attempt to take away their right to have an abortion. They never admitted to the dangers of abortion.

HB 1383 Information: http://www.house.mo.gov/Bill.aspx?bill=HB1383&year=2018&code=R
Testimony in Support of HB 1383: http://missourilife.org/legislation/2018/hb1383.html
