Member DeeDee Dorrington describes each point in our law removed by the "R.O.E." Act. This bill would directly erase medical safeguards for women and infants in Massachusetts, and promote late-term abortion access for any reason over the safety of our daughters and our women. Watch the video below, and share with your friends! Pro-life and pro-choice voters agree: "R.O.E" is a a huge NO because it would permit infanticide, remove 3-day long grueling late-term abortions from the hospital setting, and and remove parental consent and judicial supervision of our underage daughters who might be at-risk for abortion.
Call the Judiciary Committee and tell them you expect them to reject "R.O.E" (S.1209/H.3320) by or before November 12th!

National news has been focused on Virginia's promotion of infanticide. Or on New York, where Governor Cuomo just signed extremist legislation to increase abortions in his state.
Here in Massachusetts, however, we have our own infanticide law lined up. S.1209 legalizes infanticide, removes parental notification, abortion waiting periods, and the requirement that late-term abortions are done in a hospital.
We have to ask: Hey, pro-woman pro-choicers - what happened to safe, legal, RARE?
No matter what side of the political or ideological spectrum you fall on, S.1209 is extreme and dangerous.
What can you do? First, sign the petition! Let Governor Baker know, Massachusetts does not endorse infanticide & child abuse. Second, get educated. Review the quick facts below.Read more

[ Our current communications intern makes a timely report on the background of the recent bill, shut down in the Senate, to protect infants born alive after abortions, exploring Virginia Governor Northam's infanticidal comments as well. ]
by Sofia Infante, MCFL Communications Intern
In response to recent comments advocating for infanticide by Virginia Governer, Ralph Northam, Senator Ben Sasse (R., Neb.) announced his intention to introduce a bill to be passed by unanimous consent that would provide legal protections to infants born alive in botched abortions. The process of unanimous consent means one vote in opposition prevents the bill from moving forward. The Born-Alive Survivors Protections Act would ensure that babies born during abortion procedures would receive life-saving medical care. Currently, only 26 states have laws protecting babies who have survived abortions.
