LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD--SAY NO TO EXPANDED ABORTION IN MASSACHUSETTS

Massachusetts Catholic Conference

The Massachusetts Legislature will be considering two proposed laws (HB3320 https://malegislature.gov/Bills/191/H3320 

and SB 1209 https://malegislature.gov/Bills/191/S1209 ) that, if enacted into law, would have the following devastating effects:

  • • Allows abortions during the nine months of pregnancy for virtually any reason.
  • • Eliminates any requirements that abortions be performed in a hospital.
  • • Eliminates the requirement to provide medical care to a child who survives an attempted abortion.
  • • Eliminates the requirement that a minor have the consent of a parent, guardian, or the courts.
  • • Provides state funding for women who cannot afford the procedure.
