Boston--Today, Massachusetts Citizens for Life hand-delivered a letter to Governor Deval Patrick requesting that the state-funded web site "Maria Talks" be taken down immediately pending an investigation into its funding and approval, that said investigation be launched, and that the Governor meet with representatives of the organization about this troubling matter.
According to Anne Fox, President of MCFL, the site is inaccurate and deliberately misleading, "It literally coaches minor girls on how to obtain abortions without their parents knowing."
She continued, "Besides closing the site, there must be a public accounting of the funding and the decision making that lead to this serious violation of the public trust. Tax-payers need to know who in the administration authorized these funds, who approved the one-sided and misleading content of the website, who chose the group involved in creating and maintaining the website, and how it was determined that this group was qualified to counsel minor girls."
MCFL awaits Governor Patrick's reply.
