Important Pro-family Victories in MA!

by MFI News

Wonderful news!  Late last week, we learned that the Assisted Suicide bills in the MA legislature have both FAILED.  Technically, they were “sent to study,” which effectively kills them for the remainder of the 2017-2018 legislative session.  Suicide advocates will now have to refile legislation in January of 2019 and begin the whole process anew.  […]

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 […]

Stan Rosenberg’s “family values”

by MFI News

The culture of corruption and depravity in our state legislature runs deeper than even I imagined.  Yesterday, the Boston Globe dropped a bomb shell story on Beacon Hill.  I won’t repeat the graphic details, but suffice it to say that Byron Hefner, the “husband” of our state Senate President, has apparently been sexually assaulting other […]

Gender X

by MFI News

Newly filed legislation on Beacon Hill would add a third sex designation on state-issued identification, such as drivers’ licenses.  If Senator Karen Spilka of Ashland is successful in passing her bill, “X” will become a third option for sex, alongside “M” and “F”.  Spilka claims, “It is the person’s identity, the person who has that […]

Help us stop assisted suicide

by MFI News

I know many of you were involved in the 2012 statewide ballot referendum on assisted suicide, and over 1.5 million of you and your neighbors voted successfully to protect the sanctity of life. Thanks to a broad coalition of churches and faith leaders, as well as members of the medical profession and disability community, we […]

It’s Finally Over!

by MFI News

On Sunday, the 2015-2016 state legislative session finally came to a close.  I was there on Saturday, helping to lead a pro-family Lobby Day for one last opportunity to make our voices heard. I am happy to say that the last two bills we were fighting against both failed to even get voted on.  Here’s a […]

A Letter to Legislators Regarding the Bathroom Bill

by MFI News

Yesterday we hand-delivered copies of this letter to every legislator on Beacon Hill. It highlights a bizarre case of alleged “discrimination,” but shows clearly that transgender “rights” are already being strictly enforced in MA public accommodations, like hospitals, and undermines the legal arguments attempting to justify the Bathroom Bill to our legislators: Dear Legislator,          My staff and I have […]

Why the transgender movement is NOT the same as the civil rights movement

by MFI News

MFI led the charge on Beacon Hill against the Bathroom Bill at yesterday’s legislative hearing. We had several pro-family panels of experts standing up for the right to privacy and security for all Massachusetts citizens in intimate spaces. These included lawyers, pastors and teachers, as well as MFI’s own legal counsel and myself. Unlike most hearings, there […]
