Rally comes eight days after March for Life in Washington DC
On January 24, Missouri Right to Life (MRL) members and pro-lifers from across the state joined hundreds of thousands of like-minded people in Washington, D.C., to mark 47 years of abortion-on-demand. As always, the mainstream media refused to give other than token coverage. But our President didn’t ignore us. In fact, President Trump became the first president ever to speak in person at the March for Life.
President Trump encouraged pro-lifers, saying, “Together, we will defend this truth all across our magnificent land. We will set free the dreams of our people. And with determined hope, we look forward to all of the blessings that will come from the beauty, talent, purpose, nobility, and grace of every American child.”
Then, on February 1, MRL joined pro-life Missourians gathered in Jefferson City for the Midwest March for Life. More than 1,000 marched to the Capitol to stand for life!
The Jefferson City News Tribune reported that Gov. Parson became the first governor to speak at the annual Midwest March for Life.
The Parsons recently welcomed their sixth grandchild into the family, and the governor said he was grateful his granddaughter was not “another statistic.”
“All life is precious, and that’s why we fight to protect the unborn — to protect those who can’t defend themselves,” he said. “I’m here to tell you, everyone has a right to life.”
Missouri Right to Life Executive Director Susan Klein joined Gov. Parson as honored speakers who addressed the assemblage. With pride, Missourians stand with those whose lives are threatened. Surely our state has earned the title “Missouri – the Show Me Life State.”
