Missouri State Health Department figures show that Missouri women had 1,019 fewer abortions in 2010 than in 2009, a 9.4 percent decrease. The 9,796 abortions performed in Missouri in 2010 also represented the fewest number of abortions performed in the Show-Me state since 1973. This is great news!
In addition, Planned Parenthood of St. Louis, currently the only active abortion provider in the state had a net loss of more than a half-million dollars and cut payments to its abortion doctors by almost one-sixth.
This good news is due to the valiant efforts of God’s people who pray for an end to abortion, witness to life outside abortion clinics, work in pregnancy resource centers and maternity homes, and work to pass pro-life legislation regulating abortion and to provide funding for the Alternatives-to-Abortion program.
