CITATION: "ROE" (S.1209/H.3320) removes section 12P (chp.112) in Massachusetts General Law, which requires life-saving medical attention to be provided to infants born alive during late-term abortion procedures.
At 35 weeks, Melissa Ohden's college-age mother, desperate and pressured by scared parents, walked into a hospital where Melissa was aborted. Discarded by the abortion staff, Melissa was left for dead -- until one of the nurses heard a whimper.
She was taken to the NICU, provided with life-saving medical treatment, and later adopted.
If the "ROE" Act is passed, lives like Melissa's will be discarded by our medical professionals. If a nurse goes against legal requirements, no life-saving medical equipment will be legally required on-site in abortion facilities.
The "ROE" Act would make taking Melissa's life legal.
Call the Chair and Vice-Chair of the Judiciary Committee today.
Ask them to shelve the "ROE" Act, and protect Hope.
Chair Claire Cronin
Vice Chair Michael Day
