Parental consent would “gut the bill”

by MFI News

In a 31-6 vote yesterday, the MA Senate approved the controversial Sex Ed Mandate bill. The debate and vote were nearly identical to the passage of a similar bill by the Senate in late 2015. That bill died in the House, and we are working to make sure this year’s Sex Ed bill meets the […]

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.

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 […]

BOSTON – Two hundred pro-life advocates came to Beacon Hill today and sought answers  from Governor Baker about his recent announcement to increase state tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion provider. With 270 federally qualified health centers in Massachusetts that provide access to health care for women, there is no need for the government to fund […]

“Pray. You’ll Need it. Your Cause Will Be Defeated.”

by MFI News

I have to admit, the “counterprotesters” at Saturday’s Defund Planned Parenthood rally in Boston were rather irritating, with their pink knit hats and loud snarky chants. Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who thought so, since the police made them stop using their bull-horn. (The NewBostonPost described it as “Hymns vs. Obscenities.”) Unfortunately, that then meant […]

We agree with radical feminists (on something)

by MFI News

“Radical feminists” typically differ from pro-family advocates on many issues. So, why are the Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF), a self-described radical feminist group, and the Family Policy Alliance (FPA), MFI’s national public policy affiliate, teaming up?
