Governor Mike Parson will be the first governor to participate in the Midwest March for Life on Saturday, February 1, 2020. This is the region’s largest pro-life gathering with over 2,000 in attendance last year.

“Governor Parson has done more for the pro-life movement than any other governor in Missouri history,” said Steele Shippy, Parson’s campaign manager. “The governor’s leadership has sent a strong signal to the rest of the nation that Missouri stands for life, protects women’s health, and advocates for the unborn.”
This strong commitment to defending innocent life is what earned Governo Parson the full endorsement from Missouri Right to Life shortly after he announced his plan to run for re-election.
“We are ecstatic and honored that Governor Parson will be the first governor to stand alongside the people of Missouri at this year’s march and visibly stand in support of the unborn,” said Kathy Forck, organizer of the 10th Annual Midwest March for Life. “The governor has shown where his heart is as he has worked diligently for the safety and protection of Missouri women and their unborn children.”
The governor will deliver remarks at a pre-rally at 9:30 a.m. before the march begins.
“ThriVe views Governor Parson as a tremendous women’s advocate and affirmer of life,” said Bridget Vanmeans, president of ThriVe St. Louis Express Women’s Healthcare. “We are absolutely thrilled and honored that he will be joining us for the march this year.”
Abortions in Missouri have dropped to an all-time low of less than 1,400 per year. This is due to strong pro-life leaders who are willing to stand up to protect women’s health and defend those who cannot defend themselves.
“Pro-life work is a daily effort to love both mother and child, born and preborn, which is why the acknowledgment by Gov. Mike Parson of the importance of the human rights struggle of our day is so appreciated,” said Reagan Barklage, Western Regional Director of Students for Life. “Gov. Parson’s participation in the Midwest March for Life is a public sign of a private commitment to welcome all our citizens, born and preborn, into our community and state.”
