Dear Friends in Christ,
I want to take this opportunity to make you aware of two deeply troubling legislative bills being considered by the Joint Committee on the Judiciary at the Massachusetts State House.
If enacted into law these proposals would significantly expand abortion access in Massachusetts well beyond what is currently permitted. To be clear, this legislation goes well beyond the Roe v. Wade decision of the Supreme Court.
The specific details of the legislation are contained in this week’s bulletin insert (see link below). With your help, and the help of your family, friends and neighbors, we must do everything we can to make sure these bills do not become law in this state.
Your voice and the voices of all opposed to expanding abortion access is critically important and must be heard loud and clear at the State House.
Thank you, Happy New Year and God Bless.
