Churches Missing in Pro-life Effort

by MFI News

By now, many of you will have heard that the Stop Taxpayer Funded Abortion petition effort in MA fell short in its campaign to collect nearly 65,000 signatures.  Despite a tremendous effort by a motivated team of volunteers, we missed the mark by a little more than 7,000 signatures, or just under 12 percent.  Practically […]

The first step to defunding Planned Parenthood in MA

by MFI News

On the other end of the life spectrum, I’m happy to say that signature petitions for the MA Stop Taxpayer Funded Abortions ballot question are now available. If successful, this signature drive would put a question on the November 2018 ballot (alongside the bathroom bill repeal) to make taxpayer funded abortions no longer a “constitutional […]

Legislators Consider the Underage Abortion Bill

by MFI News

At a hearing before the MA Committee on Public Health on Tuesday, legislators heard testimony on Senate Bill 754, which would lower the age for young women in the Commonwealth to receive an abortion without parental consent from 18 to 16. The legislation would also eliminate the waiting period between when a woman gives written […]

Celebration of Life Day on Beacon Hill a Huge Success

by MFI News

Yesterday, MFI joined other pro-life advocates at the State House for the 2nd Annual Celebration of Life Day. It was an encouraging and motivating event for many in the pro-life community including legislators, pregnancy resource centers and other MA citizens who believe in the dignity of every human life.

MFI Speaks Life to Elizabeth Warren

by MFI News

I am down in D.C. this week with five Massachusetts pastors, taking part in the Family Research Council’s Watchmen on the Wall Conference.  We’re learning how churches can partner with groups like MFI to strategically influence the public square for the common good.  Sometimes pastors are uncomfortable filling their role of speaking God’s truth into the halls […]

Stop Taxpayer Funded Abortions

by MFI News

Last month I wrote to you about Governor Charlie Baker promising to give Planned Parenthood MA tax dollars for any federal funds that are cut by Congress.  Although the Commonwealth gives Planned Parenthood over $2 million a years for its “family planning” services, there is nothing that prevents that same money paying for those same […]

Governor Baker Dodges Questions on Planned Parenthood Funding

by MFI News

BOSTON – Two hundred pro-life advocates came to Beacon Hill today and sought answers  from Governor Baker about his recent announcement to increase state tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion provider. With 270 federally qualified health centers in Massachusetts that provide access to health care for women, there is no need for the government to fund […]

“Pray. You’ll Need it. Your Cause Will Be Defeated.”

by MFI News

I have to admit, the “counterprotesters” at Saturday’s Defund Planned Parenthood rally in Boston were rather irritating, with their pink knit hats and loud snarky chants. Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who thought so, since the police made them stop using their bull-horn. (The NewBostonPost described it as “Hymns vs. Obscenities.”) Unfortunately, that then meant […]

This Month: Defund Planned Parenthood Rally

by MFI News

Less than two years ago, Planned Parenthood’s for-profit baby-selling schemes were revealed in a shocking series of videos released by the Center for  Medical Progress. As a result, Americans from across the country are decrying Planned Parenthood and calling for its defunding. On Saturday, February 11, pro-life advocates nationwide will speak out against the abortion giant. Join […]

This victory for life is only the beginning

by MFI News

On Monday of this week, President Trump signed an executive order reinstating what’s known as the Mexico City Policy.  This prevents federal dollars from being spent on abortions overseas through the U.N. or U.S. State Department.  The policy has been a political football since it was first enacted by President Reagan, with Democrat presidents Clinton and […]
