Missouri Right to Life is a National Right to Life affiliate and our state’s oldest and largest grass-roots pro-life organization. Founded in 1974 as a response to the outcry over the legalization of abortion, the primary work of MRL includes educating citizens about pro-life issues, passing legislation that respects the sanctity of life, and maintaining a Political Action Committee dedicated to electing pro-life-minded representatives.
The ultimate aim is to change hearts, for this is where true change for our nation must take root…in the hearts and minds of individual people who can then influence those around them.
MRL-Western Region was formed in June 1974 under the name Missouri Citizens for Life. Our region is based in Raytown and serves 23 counties in Northwest Missouri.
We are proud to come alongside each precious and valuable life to achieve societal and legal recognition from conception to natural death. MRL-WR seeks to change lives and laws through passionate, peaceful, and legal action. We strive to use legislation to ebb the tsunami that is destroying human life through abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia; education to inform minds of the truths of life; and activation to alter public opinion and motivate abortion-sympathetic persons to change. We accomplish this through hosting educational booths at area-wide festivals and events, lobbying for pro-life legislation, and manning a hotline that provides referral resources for anyone in need of information regarding pregnancy services, pregnancy shelters, adoption services, abortion reversal, or post-pregnancy/abortion healing. Our phone is manned 24/7 by volunteers at (816) 353-4113.
In our present climate of cultural unrest and rapid medical advancements, the public is inundated with misinformation that can masquerade as truth and encourages the acceptance of death as the norm. Missouri Right to Life seeks to reverse this dangerous downward spiral by promoting awareness through face-to-face encounters, pro-life literature, public forums, online information, and pro-life votes. We are able to spread our message of life through the help of dedicated volunteers, generous donations, and fundraising events.
Our time and money is used to promote the pro-life message through walk for life events, lobbying events, prayer events, festivals booths, and more.
