A Special Message from MCFL President, Anne Fox:
Good friends are hard to come by these days, and you’ve been a very good friend to Massachusetts Citizens for Life. It has been awhile since we’ve heard from you, however, and I want you to know that you are missed.
Our success in working to protect life at all stages of development, from conception to natural death, is directly related to the generosity and encouragement we receive from members like you.
One of the vitally important things we are working on right now is The Gosnell Project. We have known about the Gosnell “House of Horrors” in Philadelphia. Now we learn that unsanitary, unsafe abortion facilities have been closed in Michigan, Maryland, Delaware, and other states. We know an abortionist is on trial in Florida. The worst thing we know at the moment is about Douglas Karpen, the Texas abortionist who has been accused by employees of beheading some babies using the Gosnell method and killing others as farmers used to kill chickens, by twisting off their heads!
Should we worry about what is going on at abortion facilities in Massachusetts? We certainly should! We know that Laura Hope Smith died in a facility in 2007. We know that ambulances have been called to facilities somewhat frequently.
Your Mass. Citizens for Life is working to make sure there are no Gosnells here in the state. We have sent many letters to state officials and are slowly building a picture of abortion facilities and providers.
So far, in all the documents, the thing that interests me the most is the fact that the Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services told the Energy and Commerce Committee of the United Sates House of Representatives that they license “ambulatory surgical facilities” and that the only way they know which ones perform abortions are from their reporting.
The Office of HHS states that 17 hospitals in Massachusetts perform abortions and that there are three licensed “clinics” that perform abortions. THREE You and I would assume those three are the three Planned Parenthood facilities. That would mean Four Women in Attleboro and Women’s Health Services in Brookline, to name a couple, are not licensed! Yet, each of these clinics advertises itself as a “licensed clinic!” You can name others in your area! How is that for the safety of women? Mass. Citizens has already requested further information in our quest to bring things out in the open and up to standard. In other states, when standards have been enforced, facilities have closed.
The public knowing about “clinic” conditions has the same educational potential as the partial birth abortion ban, which permanently flipped public opinion our way.
This is one example of the work Mass. Citizens is doing to protect life. It will be difficult but we can pull this off if you help.
