They can’t make you say it

by MFI News

Dear Friend of the Family, After a sweltering end to the summer, it finally seems like fall is here.  For many of us, that means back to school.  One of the new challenges several parents have shared with me is their children being required to use the “preferred pronouns” of classmates in the throws of […]

How the Wheels Came Off the Gender X Driver’s License

by MFI News

Over the past few months, we’ve been keeping you updated on a piece of legislation that would have added a third sex designation on state-issued identification such as drivers’ licenses. Instead of reflecting objective fact, forms of ID would have become vague, confusing representations of someone’s sexual expression. But thanks to Representative Jim Lyons of […]

This is not a drill! Counseling Ban to be voted on tomorrow

by MFI News

We learned late yesterday that the Counseling Ban will be voted on in the MA House of Representatives TOMORROW (Wednesday)! This is our last chance to try and stop this dangerous bill I’ve been warning about for years. It is the greatest threat to parental rights we’ve seen yet.

Help us fight for privacy and safety in MA

As you know, MFI has been championing the fight to protect women and children in public restrooms, locker rooms and dressing rooms.  If you haven’t heard, there is yet a new challenge facing women, their comfort and safety….in the spa. In Case You Missed It… In Ontario, a caller asked to book an appointment at a spa to […]

Thank you for making Lobby Day a success!

On Tuesday of this week, we held our annual Pro-Family Lobby Day in Boston. Pastors and concerned citizens from churches all over the Commonwealth (including a bus from Springfield!) came to learn about key legislation affecting parental rights and religious freedom.

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.  […]

Transgenderism: A Runaway Train?

by MFI News

The transgender movement continues to ratchet up the cultural pressure.  Two weeks ago, I shared with you the statistic that 1.5 percent of Bay State teenagers identify as transgender.  That is an alarming number, particularly given the common claim that only .3 (as of 2011) to .6 (as of 2016) percent of the general population […]

Will you be considered a ‘highly rejecting’ parent?

by MFI News

Last week I attended a contentious meeting of the Westford School Committee.  They were considering adopting a new transgender student policy.  The content of that policy was, sadly, not surprising.  It contained the usual mandate for biological boys to be given access to the girls’ locker room and play on girls-only varsity teams.  It also […]

Yesterday’s Supreme Court win

by MFI News

My colleagues at Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) won a major victory for religious liberty at the Supreme Court yesterday.  The Court ruled in Trinity Lutheran that the state cannot exclude churches and other faith-based organizations from a government program simply because of their religious identity.  Trinity Lutheran had applied to a state program in Missouri, […]

Fight Back Against the Counseling Ban!

by MFI News

Yesterday’s hearing on the Counseling Ban bill should be a wake-up call to families.  The LGBTQ lobby was out in full force in an effort to push through legislation that would prevent children from getting the help they need to deal with unwanted sexual feelings or gender confusion.  After MFI raised the alarm about this […]
