Thousands Rally for Religious Freedom at MO State Capitol

Commenting on yesterday’s successful Rally for Religious Freedom at the Missouri State Capitol, Missouri Right to Life President, Pam Fichter, said, “Today was truly an historical and inspirational day.  Thousands of pro-life Missourians came together at the Capitol to take a stand for religious freedom.  Leaders from many Christian faiths pledged to never given in to government coercion that strips us of our right to practice our faith and exercise our own religious conscience.”

Thanks to everyone who turned out! Below are some pictures from the rally. See more at the MRL Facebook Page. We will have video and transcripts of all of the speakers coming soon!
