Lobby Day Report

Tuesday was “Pro-Family Lobby Day” on Beacon Hill. Some 50 “Citizen-Lobbyists” coming from distance as far away as Springfield joined MFI, Catholic Citizenship and the Coalition for Marriage and Family at the State House. They called on their legislators to “Reset the Legislature’s Priorities” to include support of Laura’s Law that would protect women seeking an abortion, and opposition of doctor assisted suicide, medical marijuana, comprehensive sex education and wasteful government spending. Here are detailed assessments of each of these issues:

Lobby Day highlights included briefings from Representatives Jim Lyons (North Andover), Keiko Orrall (Lakeville), Kevin Kuros (Webster), Paul Adams (Andover), Peter Durant (Southbridge) and Angelo D’Emelia (Bridgewater). “Citizen-Lobbyists” also received lobbying instructions and issue briefings from MFI Director of Public Policy Maureen Vacca, Catholic Citizenship Executive Director Patricia Doherty and A Woman’s Concern Executive Director Teresa Larkin.
Energized and well-equipped by the presentations, attendees went throughout the State House visiting their representatives and senators, speaking with them or their staff and leaving detailed information regarding the five key pro-family issues of this legislative session. For a number of attendees, this was their first-ever Lobby Day and they found it to be a very informative and rewarding experience.
