Pro-life Victory in MA!

by MFI News

We are excited to report on a pro-life victory here in Massachusetts this week! In October, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a new rule protecting nonprofit religious and pro-life organizations from the Affordable Care Act’s abortion pill mandate.  Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey filed a lawsuit against the rule in Commonwealth of […]

House to Vote on Secret Abortion Bill

by MFI News

Two weeks ago, we asked you to help stop the Secret Abortion Bill in the MA Senate.  Unfortunately, the Senate passed it, but, as our friends at the Renew MA Coalition noted, your efforts did make a difference: “Spurred on by your emails and phone calls, a group of nine moderate and conservative state senators […]

Help Us Stop the Secret Abortion Bill!

by MFI News

Help stop Massachusetts from giving Planned Parenthood the gift of secret abortions for Valentine’s Day!  Our State Senate is scheduled to vote tomorrow, February 14th, on Senate Bill 591, an Act Relative to “Confidential Healthcare,” which encourages children to hide abortions, birth control and sex-reassignment “treatment” from their parents.  The legislation would prohibit insurance companies from […]

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 […]

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 […]
