Gov. Baker, despite being no great advocate for the vulnerable in Massachusetts when it comes to abortion, is taking the common sense approach to the grotesque proposed bill, S.1209.
“I do not support late term abortions,” said Baker, a Republican, when asked for comment outside the State House. “I support current law in Massachusetts. It’s worked well for decades for women and families here in Massachusetts, and that’s what we support.”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.”

Nothing is more precious than the life of a beautiful, innocent, helpless baby."
