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.

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 […]
