"God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, 'I love you.'" -Billy Graham

This Easter, let us truly strive to be grateful for this precious gift.
God's everlasting love and salvation.

Life is precious because it is a gift from our loving Father. Never take it for granted. In gratitude and hope let us give back to the Father by doing all we can to protect the gift of life!

Happy Easter from Missouri Right to Life!

"Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people
and Hallelujah is our song." -Pope St. John Paul II

Budget Work Moves From the House to the Senate:

Pro-life provisions within the Appropriation Bills approved by the House this week include:
  • Continued funding for Alternatives to Abortion Program and the Show-Me Healthy Babies Program.
  • A new program was set in place to help pregnant women on Medicaid to access rehabilitation services from opioid addiction so babies are not born addicted to drugs.
  • Pro-life protections to prevent our tax dollars from being used for abortion services, human cloning and embryonic stem cell research were renewed.
  • And, the House approved amendments to prevent our tax dollars from being used for abortions or abortion services as well as prohibiting subsidiary organizations that are connected to abortion facilities from receiving our tax dollars.
