The campaign for Shelly Dreyer, a widely respected local attorney, and candidate for State Representative in Missouri’s 129th District is pleased to announce that she received an endorsement from Missouri Right to Life over the weekend. The endorsement ties directly in with Dreyer’s tireless work to strengthen Missouri’s families and her vow to do all she can to protect the unborn. Shelly and her husband, Mark, adopted their daughter, Marley, from a teenage mother. Because of her own personal experience, Dreyer works hard to make sure more expectant mothers know the alternatives to abortion that are available to them.
“My husband and I are strongly against abortion. Our convictions only strengthened when we met the birth mother of our adopted daughter. She was a scared, single, poor teenager when she became pregnant with our daughter,” Dreyer said. “In that very difficult situation she could have chosen abortion. Instead she chose life. My husband and I thank God everyday for our beautiful daughter.”
Missouri Right to Life (MRL) is our state’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Organized in 1974 in response to the outcry over legalization of abortion in the U.S., MRL works to educate citizens about pro-life issues; pass legislation that promotes and defends the sanctity of innocent human life from the inception of biological development through natural death; organize and promote effective witness among its members across the state; and maintain a Political Action Committee dedicated to electing representatives who share their mission and work to pass pro-life laws.
“Missouri Right to Life is the leading pro-life advocacy organization statewide, representing over 250,000 pro-life Missourians. We take great care in choosing candidates to support in elections,” Dave Plemmons, Missouri Right to Life Chairman said. “In addition to survey responses and pro-life involvement in the community, we also consider past pro-life leadership, sponsorship and voting records in the Missouri legislature both in committee and on the floor.”
“When I look at my daughter I know that I have a duty to be a voice for the rights of the unborn.” Dreyer said. “I am proud to receive the Missouri Right to Life Endorsement. I look forward to fighting for the rights of the unborn in Jefferson City.”
