If you know what district you're in, you may be the difference in stopping S.1209, the infanticide bill.
Are these your representatives?
They need to hear from you. Each one sits on the Joint Committee of Public Health. Before S.1209 can advance to a vote in the legislature, it needs to clear the committee. Even pro-abortion politicians like our governor, Baker, call S.1209 a law legalizing infanticide, and bad law for our women, infants, & children.Read more
WOMEN TO RALLY FOR HUMAN RIGHTS, AGAINST MASS R.O.E. ABORTION ACT
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Boston, MA -- 29 March 2019 -- A rally, spearheaded by longtime human rights organization, Mass Citizens for Life, and co-sponsored by a diverse group of non-profit and advocacy groups in Massachusetts, including Renew Mass Coalition, will be held March 30, 2pm on the Boston Common at the corner of Park and Beacon nearest the State House in opposition to s.1209, An Act to Remove Obstacles and Expand Access to Abortion.
The purpose of the rally is to highlight the bill’s extreme provisions, from the legalization of passive infanticide, to rerouting funds in our Healthy Start program for new mothers and babies towards abortion businesses. Citizens from as far as Amherst are expected to attend, and a slate of speakers -- mostly women -- will address the rally.
Said Myrna Flynn, MCFL Board Member & Chair of the Communications Committee: “The very name of this legislation should prompt women to question its purpose. 'Remove Obstacles and Expand Access.'”
“Voters of Massachusetts believe that if abortion is allowed, it should be safe for women, and only undertaken for serious reasons," added Debby Dugan, Board Member of Renew Mass Coalition. "The R.O.E. Act throws this framework out the window, removing safeguards designed to protect women and legalizing no-questions-asked late-term abortion-on-demand for any reason, for girls of any age. Our laws should be designed to protect women and girls, not prioritize the bottom line of abortion businesses.”
Continuing a long tradition, but moving to late Spring, Massachusetts Citizens for Life will hold our Annual Massachusetts March for Life around Boston Common on Sunday, June 2, 2019 from 1 to 4pm.
Beginning with a brief pre-march rally at the Parkman Bandstand featuring live music and speakers, our March rallies and energizes in a celebration life before setting out to walk the perimeter of the Boston Public Garden and Boston Common.
Various Massachusetts organizations dedicated to supporting the physical and emotional needs of pregnant women and children in crisis will benefit from the proceeds raised at the March.
The March is an inspiring opportunity for MCFL advocates for the unborn, and all Massachusetts area human rights activists of any age to give public witness the value human life.
Please come join us for a day you will always remember and send a clear message to the world that we value human life in Massachusetts!
As we get closer to the March, we'll be updating this page with more information and links.
We also invite you to enter the Mass.March Baby Contest! It was a blast last year, and it gives a chance to celebrate these children, and reflect on how priceless their presence is in our lives!

THE QUICK STEPS
Massachusetts citizens turned out in droves for the National March for Life! We met up with the Archdiocese of Boston, multiple high schools, and the Boston-and-Worcester-based Pure in Heart contingent.
Some of us joined the Women's March, to bring a consistent and truly pro-woman message to their platform of nonviolence. Our rights as women cannot be bought at the price of the lives of our more vulnerable children.
Check out the photos, and the captions for micro-stories on this event.
You may hear the media report the March had "a few thousand". We were close to 1 million strong. Don't forget, here at home: We are not alone.
It was MASS-ive pro-life. And we, from Massachusetts -- so often trailblazers in the past for human rights, the democratic process in our nation, medical and technological development -- can also be trailblazers in the human rights issue of our age.
From the Democrats for Life Forum to the March for Life itself, and from the amazing pre-March youth rally with Louisiana Right to Life to the Rose Dinner, our carpool, and the many buses, participated in just about every activity they could.Read more

Massachusetts is a wealth of historical depth and opportunities. From Bunker Hill, to Lexington, from Walden Pond to the Old State House, we're steeped in a tradition that began with recognizing and fighting for individual human rights. Perhaps we who live in the Commonwealth too easily forget what our state offers in terms of memory.
Perhaps we forget that memory is often what roots our feet in present action, and supports our current fight for the same rights.
One highly underappreciated gem in our state is the birthplace of Susan B. Anthony. A well-known feminist, and campaigner for equal rights, Susan B. Anthony is less well known for her just as fierce opposition to the creeping practice of abortionRead more
