MFI Banquet and Babies on the Big Screen

by MFI News

Last night, I had the pleasure of speaking with Jim Lyons in front of a crowd of pro-life supporters to discuss the MA Infanticide Act.  We both noted how this bill is so extreme that we are seeing it galvanize a broad base of resistance.  That unity and energy amongst the local pro-life movement is encouraging.  […]

From Pot Shop To School Bus

by MFI News

While most of us were getting ready for Thanksgiving this past November, the first two recreational marijuana dispensaries (AKA “pot shops”) quietly opened in Massachusetts.  Less than a month later, on December 13th, two Mountview Middle School students were taken to the hospital after eating gummies infused with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive ingredient found in […]

Cautiously Optimistic on Kavanaugh

by MFI News

Monday night, President Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court.  The left continued their hysteria, insisting that this change in the court would spell doom for their progressive agenda.  Some conservatives also raised concerns that Kavanaugh’s commitment to precedent makes it unlikely that he would vote to overturn Roe […]

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 […]

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 […]
