Love in Action
Massachusetts Citizens for Life will host the Annual Massachusetts March for Life around Boston Common on Sunday, June 2, 2019 from 1 to 4pm.
Beginning with a brief pre-march rally at the Parkman Bandstand featuring live music and speakers, our walkers will circle the Common and Public Gardens, symbolizing our movement to include every human being in Massachusetts in the protection from violence that they deserve.
Various Massachusetts organizations dedicated to supporting the physical and emotional needs of pregnant women and children in crisis will be on hand to network, offer resources, and walk with us!
The March is your opportunity to be part of the mass movement for life to give public witness to the intrinsic value of every human being: born or preborn, young or old.
This is a fundraising walk, much like Walk For Hunger.
Organize your team today! Raise resources for our mission to end abortion & abuses against human lives in Massachusetts.

We are continuing our review of the presentations given at 2017 Convention in April. You may also find these presentations in our quarterly member publication, MCFL News. In this presentation, three physicians discuss how doctor-prescribed suicide will change their profession
Dr. William Lawton began his presentation on a physician’s perspective concerning doctor-prescribed suicide (DPS) by reflecting on the traditional ethic of the Hippocratic oath: to give no deadly medicine and to do no harm. He said, “Hippocrates understood what we as a culture increasingly do not understand: that a physician cannot be both healer and killer and maintain the trust of his patient.”Read more

A disturbing statement made by Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, head of the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy for life, appearing to support the European Court of Human Rights decision to reject Baby Charlie Gard’s parents’ request to go to the US for an experimental treatment for their critically ill son struck a nerve with many Catholics. And although Pope Francis quickly expressed his support for Baby Charlie and his parents shortly after the statement, the ethical issue of experimental treatment remains confusing to many people, Catholic or not.
But what has the Catholic Church really said about experimental means?Read more
Domenico Bettinelli published 2014 Assembly for Life Recapitulation in In The News 2017-06-23 09:39:07 -0400
The Assembly For Life is always a special time for Bay State Pro-lifers. We gather, commemorate, recharge, get inspired to continue the fight. This year’s assembly was especially good. The theme: Massachusetts at the Supreme Court was very well addressed by both keynote speakers, Francis Fox, Esq. and Philip Moran, Esq., who spoke on the historic FEC v. MCFL case and the current McCullen v. Coakley buffer zone case, respectively. EMCEE Jaymie Stuart Wolfe was fantastic as usual and the Montrose School Treblemakers once again gave an excellent performance. The attendees were also led in beautiful prayers by members of the clergy.
Many people showed up to Faneuil Hall despite the cold. If you weren’t able to attend, you should consider coming next year.Read more
