See article in this week’s Lifeline

Pre-filing of legislation for the 2019 session began Saturday, December 1, 2018.  At this time, there have been 183 bills and 14 various resolutions filed in the Senate.  There have been 333 bills and 12 various resolutions filed in the House.

Your Missouri Right to Life Legislative Team is working with legislators on pro-life bills to file for the 2019 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. 

Make plans now to attend Pro-Life Action Day on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 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.missourilife.org/assets/2019-lobby_day_flyer.pdf

Your attendance at lobby day is essential to the passage of solid pro-life legislation and defunding Planned Parenthood!
