When you read the Voter Guide mailed by the Secretary of State, you may have noticed that our ballot question is not listed. That is because the Guide lists only the four questions that are on every ballot statewide. That is why we are number 5 in most places - we come right after the statewide questions in those places. Where we are #6 or #7 it is because there is a local question on the ballot - like Needham, which was a dry town, always had questions about expanding the sale of liquor.
The pro-lifers working in the districts listed have already done a huge job qualifying for the ballot! Now they are setting up meetings in each district to explain the Public Policy Question in their communities - they are also educating local organizations, and appearing on local TV and radio.
In order to educate voters and get them to vote, we must print literature and signs, mail, and make phone calls. We have chosen districts that are heavily pro-life but people will not vote "Yes on 5" unless they know about it. The Question may not be on your ballot, but you can still help. We need to pay for the cards, the signs, the postage, and the calls. Please donate now! Election Day, Nov. 4th is six weeks from today!
Just think how it will feel on Nov 5th and every day after that to be able to tell the press and legislators that the people want to place restrictions on abortion facilities!
Thanks for whatever help you can provide!
PS: Please be sure to check the list to see if you or friends or relatives live in one of the districts - and then donate! Thanks again.
Shall the state representative from this district be instructed to vote in favor of legislation that requires all non-hospital facilities performing more than 10 abortions a year to be licensed as "clinics" and to be inspected at least every two years by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health? THIS SAME WORDING APPEARS ON BALLOTS IN LOCATIONS BELOW NUMBERED EITHER 5, 6, OR 7.
