President's letters

Myrna Maloney Flynn

Before he passed away in 2017, I asked my father to share some of what he'd learned throughout his 86 years, words I could remember him by and which would keep me focused after he was gone. He offered one simple yet, in our culture, particularly challenging directive: "Be who you are."

At that time, I was a relatively scared, closeted pro-lifer, fearful of admitting my belief, let alone sharing it publicly. When he took his last breath, and I witnessed a human life ending, the fear in my heart died along with him and was replaced by a fiery will to not only speak out but to compassionately persuade. My letters over the years to MCFL's supporters, and to those on our email list who may be opposed to me, fulfill Dad's life-changing advice. They are each dedicated to him and my mother, who gave me life against what society deemed reasonable, bucking popular opinion.

Thank you for reading. I invite you to share this page -- and be who you are. Myrna Maloney Flynn.

  • Standing Tall

    No man stands taller than when he stoops to help a child. - Abraham Lincoln

  • Her redemption story

    There is something in us, as storytellers and as listeners to stories, 

    that demands the redemptive act, 

    that demands that what falls at least be offered the chance to be restored.

    -Flannery O'Connor

  • Statement: Gov. Healey orders abortion pill "stockpile"



    Mifepristone's purpose is to end human life; abortion tourism likely.

  • Roses

    “Spring is the time of plans and projects.”  -Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

  • Governor Healey, veto the CPC's smear campaign

    On March 29, 2023, the following email letter was sent to Maura Healey, the Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

  • Roe 50th anniversary

    How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. - Anne Frank

    Cleaned out my closet a couple weeks ago and saw a cardboard box shoved into the back. Inside, I found small glories of the ‘80s and among them, a 35mm with a roll of Fuji film still inside. I posted the find on Facebook, figuring I might as well share it with friends who’d relate to the oddity of discovering not only a long-forgotten point-and-shoot camera but a Sony Walkman and mix tape as well. 

  • FDA brings abortion pills to your pharmacy

    Truth supports, advances and accomplishes our mission. I write today to share new truths we’ve learned, so you can, in turn, share them with others.

    I am disheartened to let you know that retail pharmacies will soon be allowed to sell the abortion pill, because of an approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

  • Assisted Suicide Ban Upheld in Massachusetts

    Thanks to you and your consistent stance against physician-assisted suicide, we celebrate today after the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled that our state's Constitution does not include a right to the procedure.

  • Simple Gifts

    Perhaps the best thing about a Thanksgiving feast is how surprisingly easy it is to prepare the main course: put turkey into oven, achieve safe temperature for human consumption, take turkey out of oven. Voila! It's the culinary equivalent of “just the facts, ma’am.”
