Every life is worth fighting for: help stop assisted suicide in MA

by MFI News

On Tuesday, I’ll be at the State House testifying against the imposition of Doctor Prescribed Suicide in Massachusetts. Two years ago, when this same noxious bill was being considered on Beacon Hill, I was introduced to the story of fellow Marine J.J. Hanson. He was diagnosed with the same aggressive form of brain cancer that […]

Fighting City Hall

by MFI News

This past summer, MFI’s Michael King had the privilege of speaking at Camp Constitution, a local MA ministry working to enhance the understanding of our Judeo-Christian moral heritage. Last week, we learned that the City of Boston had denied an application by the camp to fly the Christian Flag on the City Hall Plaza flag […]

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 […]

When the Medical Profession Can No Longer Be Trusted

by MFI News

I purposefully don’t ask you to sign a lot of petitions because there are always so many going around, BUT I believe this one is important.  Kris Mineau and I have written to you in the past about our friend Dr. Paul Church, an accomplished urologist who has been blackballed by Boston hospitals for stating […]

Something GOOD on Beacon Hill!

by MFI News

When I drive into Boston to go to the State House, it’s usually to face yet another uphill battle to defend our shared values. It can be daunting at times and, frankly, a bit overwhelming. Part of what helps me stay positive is knowing some of the rich religious heritage that is literally carved into the […]

Our state legislature is finally out of session this month for their summer break.  This gives us some breathing room here at MFI, but we’re already looking ahead to the fall. First of all, I am excited to announce that as of this morning, our Engage the Bay State book is now available as a Kindle […]

  This week, I had the privilege of gathering with pro-family leaders from around the country at the Focus on the Family headquarters in Colorado Springs.  It was here that I received the wonderful news that Governor Sam Brownback of Kansas has been named U.S. Ambassador for International Religious Freedom.  This is encouraging to all of […]
