Loretto Wagner, one of the founding members of Missouri Right to Life and well known pro-life activist, died this week. For many years the Missouri Catholic Conference worked with Loretto on many pro-life pieces of legislation. Loretto was also a founding member and president of Our Lady’s Inn, a shelter for women in crisis pregnancies that began with a small south St. Louis facility in the early 1980s and now operates two larger ones, in St. Louis and St. Charles.
