Missouri Right to Life Rallies to Protect Life

Updated:
Missouri Right to Life members rally in Lamar renewing the call to choose life.

Two lawmakers talked about their mission to protect human life and anti-abortion efforts.

The organization also discussed concerns about the elderly, and treatment of the terminally ill under Obamacare.

Kansas gospel group "The Hazard Sisters" sang songs about the value of human life.

Members are encouraged that Missouri laws help to further their cause

"I serve in a pro-life republican majority that is the largest that's ever existed in the state. And I just wanted to re-emphasize and point out to people that that's something that's important to this state, that's something that's important to the legislature, and we continue to do what we can to  protect life," says Missouri State Representative Mike Kelley.

Right to life member Dave Spiering says "we have led the nation in a lot of ways. There are other states like Georgia, Texas that do have substantial reduction on abortion rate and I am encouraged in that

A newly passed Missouri law requires a woman to wait 72 hours after having an ultrasound to have an abortion which Representative Kelley says gives women time to rethink the decision.
