Legislation Saves Lives: Abortion Numbers Continue to Drop!

The preliminary number of abortions in 2013 has finally been released by the MO Dept. of Health. The total numbers of abortions in 2013 was 8,740. This is a decline of 287 abortions or over a 3% drop in one year. This continues a trend that has been going on almost steadily since 1980 thanks to pro-life activists!
