What a momentous day we shared at the State House yesterday! If you were able to join us, you know I'm not exaggerating when I say that, without a doubt, we delivered a resounding, united "NO" before those who question whether more abortions are what the Commonwealth's citizens want. Outside on the steps, within overflow seating areas, and inside at the microphone, a loving, earnest, and firm pro-life message easily muffled that of the opposition.
Sitting idle, the few remaining people in pink apparently did not want, or perhaps could not find the words, to respond.
Thank you for joining us yesterday.
Thank you for signing our petition.
Thank you for your generous gifts which allowed us to execute our June 17 campaign with force!
This effort is not yet finished.
Please continue to follow our updates regarding these bills. (Chairman Cronin adjourned the hearing without giving any indication of what the committee's next move would be.) And I ask: keep educating those who you know to be supporters of the bills about the legislation's many flaws. If one thing was prominent yesterday, it's that most proponents of the so-called "ROE" Act have not even read the legislation nor taken time to understand its likely repercussions.
He has indicated in recent days both a potential willingness to accept the bill as well as a hesitation to see it on his desk. Therefore, your voice carries tremendous weight this week!
Yesterday was yesterday, and we blew the top off the State House. But we must not become complacent. We're merely shifting gears to press on to the finish line, and at top speed.
I am so proud to work with each of you, and I look forward to carrying our momentum into the next few weeks.
With sincere gratitude,
Myrna Maloney Flynn
