Pro-Life Action Day 2018

Pro-Life Action Day is Tuesday, March 13, 2018. Please print off the "Show Me Life" Action Day flyer and distribute to your pro-life friends, family and church members:

Rev. Billy Graham, R.I.P.

We wish to express our sadness at the passing of Rev. Billy Graham.  His ministry and life held the highest view of life, both for the here and now and for all eternity.  Sadness is expressed because he is no longer with us. And yet , there is joy because he is with the Lord. 

In one of his last public interviews, Dr. Graham shared his hope to hear from the Lord "Well done thou Good and Faithful servant". We at Missouri Right to Life hope Dr, Graham's life will be an inspiration to all of us for the high calling of defending all innocent lives. So that we too can be counted as good and faithful servants.
