SAN FRANCISCO-- A video released July 14 appears to show a top Planned Parenthood official discussing the sale of parts of aborted babies for research, and also discussing ways the abortion procedure can be altered to preserve specifically requested body parts.

Pro-life supporters stood vigil outside of the Planned Parenthood facility on Forest Park Boulevard in the Central West End Jan. 18. They were a part of the rosary procession from the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, during which they prayed for the conversion of hearts to know the value of every life.

The House voted 115-39 on March 11 to send the bill to the Senate. The Senate version of the bill, SB 519, won't be considered until after legislators return from spring break in late March.

The Missouri Catholic Conference and others involved in the pro-life movement are urging individuals to contact their legislators in support of the legislation.
