These lives depend on you and me!
The abortionist in Philadelphia is charged with brutally killing seven babies after they were born alive.These may be seven of hundreds.Something must be done!
We at Mass Citizens are for Life are doing something.We have filed the fetal pain bill that will stop virtually all abortions after 20 weeks.This law is already saving babies in other states.We want to save babies here also.
We have filed:
a bill that would outlaw virtually all abortions of unborn babies 20 weeks and older because they feel pain
a bill to be sure that a woman is informed about the development of her baby and the risks to her before she has an abortion,
a bill to stop abortions being done because the baby is the wrong sex,
a State Partial Birth Abortion Ban, and
a bill which will allow people who oppose abortion to direct their tax dollars to the Baby Safe Haven program so that we do not have to pay for abortions.
A recent poll shows that 800,000 people in the state were aware of the work done by the MCFL PACS in the recent elections.We have credibility with the newly elected legislators as well as the pro-life incumbents.
MCFL has been fighting Obamacare for 18 months: on the radio, in the newspapers, with more than half a million phone calls, and with a huge petition drive.Before the March we delivered tens of thousands of petitions to our legislators in DC.
Momentum is on our side!But I need your immediate help to fund MCFL's efforts to keep up the pressure as we work to repeal Obamacare, end taxpayer funding of abortion, and pass all-important state legislation.
This is a battle we cannot afford to lose! Since January 22, 1973, more than 53 million babies have lost their lives in the womb and many of their mothers and fathers have been injured by abortion.That is 1.4 million babies killed here in Massachusetts alone.
We need your immediate financial support to make sure we have every weapon at our disposal when these important votes come up in D.C. and on Beacon Hill. We must pressure our legislators to act on the pro-life mandate that's been given to them by the American people.
The need is urgent.We must raise $25,000 this week to continue our legislative work.
Please help us reach our goal. Now is the time to pass laws that save lives and end taxpayer funding of abortion.
