How to Lobby

Since MCFL's founding in 1972, we have been bringing a vigorous lobbying effort to the State House. We play a key role in crafting pro-life legislation and each legislative session we present a legislative agenda designed to advance the cause.

Passing legislation, however, is only half the work we do at the Statehouse. The other half is halting the passage of pro-abortion and anti-life measures. Education about these unjust bills and measures is key to defeating them. MCFL is committed to providing the necessary education to ensure that everyone, pro-life and otherwise, understands the pernicious nature of pro-death laws.
