On March 12th, our own Western Regional Director Reagan Barklage, St. Louis Regional Coordinator Elizabeth Hill, and a ton of their closest pro-life friends in Missouri gathered at the Missouri State Capitol for the 2019 Show Me Life Rally. MO Right to Life hosts this lobby day to promote “the passage of solid pro-life legislation and de-funding Planned Parenthood.”
This year, Reagan & Elizabeth showed up with our Planned Parenthood Truth display, setting it up proudly in the Capitol Building’s rotunda. In the past 10 years, 71 ambulances have been called to the St. Louis Planned Parenthood, earning it the title of America’s Most Dangerous Abortion Facility.
Reagan spoke at the event, and noted afterwards:
Honored to have spoken at the MO Show Me Life Rally today, alongside our Governor, Lt Gov, Attorney General, Sec of State, and State Treasurer – all of whom are staunchly pro-life!! So grateful for our elected officials’ never ceasing stance for LIFE! I would especially like to thank our Attorney General, Eric Schmitt for valuing all life. Four years ago he spoke at our Women Betrayed Rally in front of the STL PP, in response to PP selling aborted baby parts. Today, we asked him to investigate the 71 ambulances that have been to that same facility since 2009. We dropped off some of the postcards we’ve collected on MO campuses asking for an investigation, and more are being mailed in from schools. Women deserve better than to be carried out of a “health facility” in a stretcher!
The event had a great turnout and we hope Attorney General Eric Schmitt takes their words to heart and orders an investigation of this dangerous facility. Women are fed a lie that they must end the lives of their children in order to be successful, they pay a visit to Planned Parenthood, and 71 have left on a stretcher. Women deserve better than this!
