Our abortion facility licensing public policy question is #5 in most districts where it is on the ballot, # 6 in a few others, and #7 in Wilbraham. It is the same question (see wording below). Our people in those districts have been sending excellent Letters to the Editor. We have been hoping to have some Letters to the Editor opposing our ballot question, which would give us more of a chance to publicize the pro-life position in favor of #'s 5,6, & 7. Well, one finally came! A doctor from Boston wrote to the Sentinal and Enterprise in Fitchburg and Leominster, which are two of our districts.
With true pro-abortion logic, he opposes a law requiring licensing and inspecting by saying, "If we truly want to protect and improve women's health and safety, we need to pass measures that increase access to safe, legal health-care, not restrict it.
I think either he or his cronies will write the same letter to all the papers in the 11 districts where the question is on the ballot. Please be on the lookout. It is a wonderful vehicle for a few letters, at least. Again, please check the list below and contact everyone you know in any of the districts.
There are going to be some good wins in the Massachusetts legislature on Nov 4th. The ballot question will be the other bright spot for us!
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.
