As you know, a hearing of the Joint Committee on the Judiciary is an endurance challenge. It is very important that we attend and testify - to support the sponsors who worked with us on these bills and to let the committee know the facts.
Massachusetts Partial Birth Abortion Ban, H-1441 and H-1538: Sponsors and Wording, http://masscitizensforlife.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/BillH1441.pdf

Also, Representative Brad Jones has filed a very good fetal homicide bill, currently 29 states have full protection for the baby and 8 have partial protection. Again, we are so far behind the curve in this state!An act relative to fetal homicide, H-1392 which makes the unborn child the second victim of a violent crime against the mother with penalties the same as if the injury or death had happened to the mother. Text of Bill, https://malegislature.gov/Bills/189/House/H1392
Currently 29 states have full protection for the baby and 8 have partial protection. Again, we are so far behind the curve in this state!
If you find you cannot attend hearings, please email your testimony to Committee Chairs. You may put your support for all three bills in one email and it is fine to be brief.
