Gratefully -- Because You Made History to Protect our Vulnerable

Dear friends,

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.

Members of the Joint Committee on the Judiciary kept their word and graciously heard testimony from all who wanted to speak. This meant that a doggedly-determined group, made up almost exclusively of pro-lifers, brought the hearing to a close at 11:00pm! Those of us who tried to match that stamina were humbled to hear wall-to-wall defenders of life from across the state reject the implications of S.1209/H.3320.

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.

Then call the governor's office to voice your concerns at 617-725-4005.

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

Vice President
