5.     Missouri Right to Life: mission: “To uphold and promote

natural death by providing education and by supporting

legislation and programs that endorse that ideal; and by

organizing citizens for effective results”

 

Core Issues: Abortion, Human cloning and human embryonic

stem cell research, infanticide, euthanasia and assisted

suicide.

 

Legislation: MRL has drafted and helped to pass legislation

that bans partial-birth and webcam abortions, prevents public

funding of abortion services, human cloning and embryonic

stem cell research; ensures that women are provided

information about their baby’s development, the opportunity

to view an ultrasound, and a minimum 72-hour reflection

period after receiving such information; also: provides tax

credits for donations to charities serving pregnant women in

crisis and funding for alternatives to abortion services;

ensures that every person is given life-preserving healthcare

and has the right to the highest attainable standard of

healthcare without discrimination.

 

Political Action: Known for two of the state’s most active and

successful political action committees, the MRL PAC informs

Missourians about their legislators’ voting records and

candidates’ positions on pro-life issues.

 

Education: MRL offers life-affirming videos, books, speakers,

and resources to Missourians. Exhibits at County Fairs in the

summer.

 

Grassroots Success: Through local MRL chapters, members

increase community awareness, support the work of

Pregnancy care centers and take part in attending Pro-Life

Lobby Days at Jefferson City to encourage our governmental

representatives to vote for life.
