Amending Massachusetts' Constitution to Remove Extreme Tax-Payer Support for Abortion

 

As we gain momentum this Spring towards encounter with the most extreme abortion laws in our history, the proposal to amend our State Constitution to remove tax-payer funding for abortion is timely, practical, and necessary. The memorandum that follows explores and explains exactly why we can and should secure signatures this Fall.

The current provisions added to our constitutions effectively make abortion a right of our most vulnerable women, victimizing them, and unjustly forcing citizens to pay for the killing of their unborn children. We're privileged to be working with Pro-Life Legal Defense, and Tom Harvey, Esq. on this campaign.

Proposal for State Constitutional Amendment

Tom Harvey, Esq.

            Ever since a Supreme Judicial Court decision in 2001, Massachusetts taxpayers have been paying for many abortions. Even though the word “abortion” is not found in the Massachusetts Constitution, that court essentially ruled that the constitution requires that indigent women have a right to have an abortions paid for by you, the taxpayers.

Op-Ed in Boston Herald on Protect Life Policy

Star Parker writes in the Boston Herald this week, spelling out exactly why our the president's support for The Department of Health and Human Services Protect Life Rule is so important.

This policy has cut off Title X federal funds from going towards abortion facilities and services, or clinics which make abortion referrals. It will also  require that clinics taking Title X funds be “physically and financially” independent from any entity providing abortions.

Star writes:

"This puts a stop to organizations like Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, from claiming that, although they perform abortions, Title X funds they receive are used for other purposes."

Petition Against Extreme Abortion Law In Massachusetts

Bill SD 1209, better known as An Act to Remove Obstacles and Expand Abortion Access in Massachusetts makes extremism look mild.  Massachusetts has some of the most liberal abortion laws in the nation, and the world.

This bill makes abortion not safe, not rare, and outright promotes the deadly procedure.

See our quick facts on the ROE Act here

Sign your name below to say no to extremism, no to abandoning our 13-year-old girls to predators, and our women to non-physicians, and no to expanding abortion in our state

(Both pro-life and pro-choice voters in Massachusetts agree: SD1209 throws the health of women to the dogs, abandons minors to sexual predators and big abortion busines, and unnecessarily reduces culpability for abortionists who botch procedures and butcher the patients on their tables.)

 

RETURN HERE TO SIGN THE PETITION AGAINST EXTREME ABORTION PROMOTION

 

Thank you for everything you do in our movement to 

restore respect for every human being

in our Commonwealth.

BREAKING: Pro-Abortion Senators Block Infant-Born-Alive Protection

PRO-ABORTION SENATORS BLOCK BILL PROTECTING INFANTS BORN-ALIVE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE --  WASHINGTON D.C. -- The U.S. Senate voted on February 26, 2019, 53-44 to advance the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 130) sponsored by Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.). Pro-abortion senators blocked the bill from receiving the 60 votes necessary, however, to move forward. Had it advanced, this bill would have federally mandated that medical professionals administer life-saving healthcare to babies born alive during an abortion.

The president of National Right to Life, Carol Tobias, remarked: 

"Today we saw the extremism of the abortion industry's agenda on full display. The 44 members of the United States Senate who voted against this bill now need to explain to their constituents why they believe abortion is such an absolute 'right' that it protects what amounts to infanticide: willfully withholding life-saving care from an born-alive infant."

The block of this common sense legislation comes right off the heels of a slew of controversy over extreme-abortion-promoting laws in states such as Virginia and New York. In Massachusetts, we will soon face The ROE ACT ("Remove Obstacles and Expand Abortion Care").

Say NO to R.O.E. and Promoting Abortion

National news has been focused on Virginia's promotion of infanticide. Or on New York, where Governor Cuomo just signed extremist legislation to increase abortions in his state.

Here in Massachusetts, however, we have our own pro-abortion law lined up. The ROE ACT removes parental notification, abortion waiting periods, and the requirement that late-term abortions are done in a hospital. 

We have to ask: Hey, pro-woman pro-choicers - what happened to safe, legal, RARE?

No matter what side of the political or ideological spectrum you fall on, the Roe Act is extreme and dangerous

What can you do? First, sign the petition! Let Governor Baker know, Massachusetts will not stand for endangering our most vulnerable members of society. Second, get educated. Review the quick facts below.

Reflections on Abortion & Infanticide from a Jewish Perspective

 

by Don Feder

 

I gave this address a year ago: We need to keep talking about the savage roots of the abortion mentality.

When I was a kid (a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away), my favorite TV shows

were “The Adventures of Superman” and “The Lone Ranger.”

 

Remember the way “The Lone Ranger” opened: “Return with us now to those thrilling

days of yesteryear! From out of the past come the thundering hoofbeats of the great Horse

Silver! The Lone Ranger rides again.”

 

Well, apologies to the masked man and his faithful Indian companion, but those days

of yesteryear often weren’t that thrilling. In antiquity, they were frequently barbaric, bloody

and brutal. 

 

It was a time when human sacrifice, infanticide and the carnage of the arena were

commonplace. People as diverse as the Carthaginians, Etruscans, Canaanites, Celts, Aztecs,

Incas and Hawaiians sacrificed adults or babies to appease the gods, ward off natural

disaster, and assure good harvests or victory in battle. In Carthage between 800 BC and 146

BC., it is estimated 20,000 infants were ritually sacrificed.

Meet Sofia, MCFL's 2019 Communications Intern!

Our newest team member comes to us from Boston College. Local, of Colombian-extraction, with a talent for using words and a heart of service, Sofia Infante will writing regularly on topics of human life in the Commonwealth. You can also find her as one of the newest leaders in the Boston MCFL Chapter (Advocates). She loves to travel, and engaging with her fellow human beings on heart things: beliefs, family, stories.

Get to know her! She's introduced herself in the following interview!

_____________________

Tell us a little about you. Do you have siblings?

I grew up with Colombian parents. During my childhood, my parents worked hard to teach us about our Catholic faith. They didn’t shield us from the world, but always answered any questions we may have had. I remember many conversations at the dinner table revolved around current events. This informed my desire to uncover and speak out about the truth, especially concerning topics that seemed to have already been deliberated and decided upon by those in positions of power. My family’s honest and compassionate approach to teaching us about the fruits of living a virtuous life taught me to value and expect the same honesty in myself and others.

Do you have siblings?

Two siblings-- one older and one younger brother.

What do you love to do?

I love to read short stories, take photos, spend time talking about my faith and current events with friends, and I especially enjoy baking.

When did you first get involved in pro-life advocacy?

Deciding that I wanted to contribute to the pro-life cause was a gradual realization. After graduate school, I thought I would write about current events in the Catholic Church. During this time of hardship and painful revelations, I felt emboldened to do my part in bringing the truth to light and to support those who out of love...
