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 […]

BREAKING: Feds issue new guidance on religious liberty

by MFI News

Great news for religious liberty today!  The Department of Justice released a 25-page memo for all executive departments and agencies outlining federal protections for religious liberty.  In it, Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the following powerful statement: “The free exercise of religion ‘is in its nature an unalienable right’ because the duty owed to one’s […]

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 […]

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 […]

Obamacare Repeal Moving Forward

by MFI News

Within hours of the release of the EO on religious liberty, the House of Representatives passed a partial repeal of ObamaCare.  It largely defunds Planned Parenthood for the next year by eliminating more than $390 million (roughly 80%) of federal funding for the abortion giant.  You can watch this year’s banquet speaker Hugh Hewitt discuss this […]
