There are those who like it and those who hate it. Outside the building where the Republican rally is being held, about 100 pro-choice activists made their way from St. Louis to disrupt the rally.

Nick Schroer, more than ever, sees his future in this state more and more in his image as he’s not about to stop his crusade. And he prays that all American states adopt his law.
