“The pro-life organization posed the scenario of a pregnant 13-year-old who could be abandoned to her sexual abuser and forced into an abortion without her parents’ knowledge. Parental consent laws help protect young girls from abuse and help ensure that they make an informed decision before ending their baby’s life.”
(Micaiah Bilger – Life News) Massachusetts abortion activists upped the pressure this week on state lawmakers to pass a bill legalizing abortions for basically any reason up to birth.
Masquerading their deadly agenda as a fight for women’s health care, state Attorney General Maura Healey, Rep. Ayanna Pressley and city councilors Michelle Wu and Lydia Edwards launched a social media campaign Monday to support the bill, The Boston Globe reports.
Dubbed the Roe Act, the bill would eliminate basically all regulations and restrictions on abortion in Massachusetts. It would allow abortions up to birth, even if there is no physical threat to the mother’s life, and could put young sexual abuse victims at greater risk by eliminating the state parental consent requirement.
