MCFL and Choose Life Massachusetts Announce Strategic Integration

The formal alliance will increase specialty license plates across the state, with revenues directly supporting women via pregnancy resource centers. 

Massachusetts Citizens for Life (MCFL) proudly announces its newest affiliate. Choose Life Massachusetts (CLM), a pioneering organization advocating for the pro-life movement through its specialty license plate initiative, will enter into a strategic alliance with MCFL, the state’s oldest and largest right-to-life organization. This unification marks a significant milestone in the nonprofits’ shared mission to prevent society’s greatest human rights assault: abortion. 

Through this integration, MCFL and CLM will combine resources, expertise and passion, creating a more robust and effective platform to spread a life-affirming message and generate financial support for organizations that protect the unborn and their mothers, including pregnancy resource centers, baby safe havens and adoption-related groups. The collaboration will significantly enhance outreach and educational efforts, thereby increasing public awareness of the pro-life cause and, more importantly, options available to women who face unplanned pregnancies.

"We are thrilled to unite with Massachusetts Citizens for Life, an organization that shares our dedication to protecting the most vulnerable in our society," said Merry Nordeen, founder of Choose Life Massachusetts. "Together, we will continue to champion the cause of life with even greater impact and reach."

Myrna Maloney Flynn, president of Massachusetts Citizens for Life, added, "MCFL launched the state’s first-ever pregnancy resource center network earlier this year. Integrating Choose Life Massachusetts into our operations dovetails beautifully with that."

"I’m confident that the work we achieve together will benefit more women in need, and not just in goods and services," Maloney Flynn said. "This collaboration will amplify the truth that is so often blurred. Not only do women not need abortion, but they are both strong enough to succeed and better off long term without it. We are excited to work alongside Choose Life Massachusetts to reveal these and other truths to the women and men of our state.”

Increased Message Reach: By joining forces, we will integrate our networks and extend our reach to a broader audience across Massachusetts. Our combined voice will be stronger and more influential, enabling us to more effectively advocate for the protection and dignity of all human life.

Enhanced Awareness Efforts: Together, we will implement innovative strategies to educate the public about life issues. Our joint programs will inspire and engage communities in meaningful discussions and actions that respect and uphold the value of life at all stages.

Boost Specialty License Plate Sales: Since 2010, the "Choose Life" license plate has been a powerful tool in funding our cause. This affiliation will boost the visibility and sales of these specialty plates, thereby increasing the financial support for our life-affirming projects and initiatives.

We invite our supporters, volunteers, and the public to join us in this exciting new journey. Together, we will continue to choose and defend life.
