President of National Right to Life on MRL Lobby Day

National Right to Life President, Carol Tobias, writes:

The beautiful Missouri state capitol building sits on the banks of the Missouri River in Jefferson City. On Tuesday, hundreds of pro-lifers from the Show Me state gathered at the capitol for the “Show Me Life” Pro-life Action Day.

At this annual event organized by Missouri Right to Life (MRL), pro-lifers from around the state, many in red shirts, many arriving on buses, come to lobby in support of legislation to protect unborn children, the elderly, and the medically vulnerable.

At the rally, I reminded those gathered that Missouri has a long history of challenging Roe v Wade. It was a Missouri law that was upheld by the Supreme Court in 1989, Webster v Reproductive Health Services, that sent shock waves through the abortion movement. News articles were written that the nation’s abortion law had been weakened; Roe v Wade should no longer be considered “settled law.”
