Our Mission

End abortion in St. Louis–peacefully and prayerfully.

Coalition For Life St. Louis is a fast growing 501(c)(3) non-profit with a mission of Ending Abortion in St. Louis, thus making Missouri the first abortion free state. Directed by Brian Westbrook, Coalition For Life counselors and prayer volunteers have helped save hundreds of children from abortion since 2009, and have impacted over 3,000 men and women. Beginning in 2012, the Coalition for Life staff and volunteers began turning away mothers from certain abortions outside on the streets in front of the last active abortion facility in the state. At the end of 2016, over 1,700 women had decided to leave the abortion facility and seek out other life-affirming options.

The Coalition:

The Coalition for Life is a Christ-centered, community-based prolife organization made up of over 140 churches & organizations from several faith backgrounds and thousands of individuals who are working to end abortion in St. Louis peacefully and prayerfully.
