BREAKING: BAKER LINE VETOES MAJORITY OF ROE ACT PROVISIONS IN STATE BUDGET BILL

BREAKING: GOVERNOR BAKER LINE-VETOES ABORTION SECTION OF STATE BUDGET (ROE ACT)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- DECEMBER 11, 2020 -- This afternoon, Massachusetts governor, Charlie Baker, approved the 46B state budget bill but line-vetoed segments of Section 40, which contained egregious provisions, expanding abortion.

He retained the section permitting abortion at and after 24 weeks in cases of so-called "fatal fetal abnormalities", even though that term is ambiguous and not defined in the bill and opens the door to fatal error. Hope Dupell, who just celebrated her first birthday, was diagnosed with a lethal condition while in the womb. Fortunately, she thrives today as a living example of a life that a deadly mistake under this provision would have extinguished.

"Although there remains much in this bill with which to take issue, we thank Governor Baker for the common sense recommendation to raise the age for consent to abortion to 18,” said MCFL Executive Director, Patricia Stewart. Massachusetts Citizens for Life.

    ENOUGH WITH COMPROMISE. The snakes wait for us to roll over and go to sleep. We need to stand for all children that are perfectly viable outside the womb, Governor Baker!
    Call your congressman. But first, call every church in your neighborhood or town! Get the word out that they are tightening the ratchet down, and ask other to tell their reps, (Mass. House of Representatives), that this needs to stop, right here and right now.
