5.     Missouri Right to Life: mission: “To uphold and promote the sanctity of all innocent human life at every stage through 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.
