MCFL-- DPS first skirmish: Life 1-0

by: MCFL Press Release

Wed Mar 07, 2012 at 15:20:50 PM EST

Yesterday's hearings at the State House were impressive.

Representative Eugene O'Flaherty, House Chair of the Judiciary Committee, ran the hearings very efficiently. More than 50 people testified in opposition to Doctor Prescribed Suicide. They covered the range of reasons to oppose the bills. Massachusetts Alliance Against Doctor Prescribed Suicide taped the hearings. I understand MAADPS will have those and the written testimony on their web site momentarily, http://stopassistedsuicide-ma....

There were only a hand-full of proponents. Apparently, since they know the petition will be on the ballot, they decided to keep their powder dry. There was an interesting contrast. The proponents spoke emotionally about people in difficult situations which, they claim, necessitates changing the law. Opponents talked about what we can do for people in difficult situations and about all the specific problems with the bill.

Rep. John Rogers of Norwood stated, "I think we as a society, the commonwealth of Massachusetts, using our intellect and our ingenuity and combined energies, we define ourselves not by allowing our citizens to die with dignity but by empowering our citizens to live with dignity while they're dying, And in that distinction, we define ourselves as a great, humane society."

Rep Keiko Orrall, Lakeville, reminded the Committee that this is an issue of life, which is precious.

The disability community, lead by John Kelly and Karen Schneiderman, fielded a number of panels. They covered all aspects of the issue, showing the dangers to vulnerable people - the disabled, the elderly, the ill. They pointed out that a life lived with dignity is what allows a person to die with dignity. John said the law is unnecessary because patients already have control over their destiny with the ability to refuse any life-saving treatments and through advanced directives.

John Norton shared that he had been diagnosed with ALS 58 years ago, pointing out that a prognosis can be wrong.

Maggie Murphy of the Hospice and Palliative Care Federation of Massachusetts, reported that the state's 59 licensed hospices served more than 21,000 terminally ill patients in 2011, and eight hospices served about 235 children.  

Laura Tuttle, RN, a hospice nurse who has ALS, spoke beautifully, saying, "I will most likely die from respiratory failure within the next few years. But I am not afraid of dying because I know all of my needs will be taken care of by hospice professionals."  

Lynda Young, MD, Barbara Rocket, MD, Leonard Morse, MD, and Henry Dorkin, MD spoke on behalf of the Massachusetts Medical Society. Dr. Young, President of the MMS reported, "At the Medical Society's most recent House of Delegates meeting, which is the Society's policy making body, there was overwhelming support to reaffirm the Medical Society's long standing policy of opposition to physician-assisted suicide. As the American Medical Association's Code of Medical Ethics states, 'It is understandable although tragic, that some patients in extreme duress...may come to decide that death is preferable to life.  However, allowing physicians to participate in assisted suicide would cause more harm than good. Physician assisted suicide is fundamentally incompatible with the physician's role as healer.'"

Another panel of doctors was also very impressive: Helen Jackson, MD, Gil Lavoie, MD, Mark Rollo, MD, and Alexandra Cist,MD, who pointed out that one result of the legislation would be to drive people away from palliative care by making them afraid to use it.

Among the others who testified and made points about the glaring shortcomings in the wording of the petition, and about the lack of respect for human life which would result were Hope Hallett, RN, Deb O'Hara-Rusckowski, RN, Elaine Luzzetti, RN, Michelina DiMartino, a licensed pharmacist, Mary Roque, Esq, Pat Stewart, Esq, Bob Joyce, Esq, and Andrew Beckwith, Esq. Margaret Dore, Esq, flew in from Washington State and presented a detailed legal analysis of the bill. Nancy Elliott, former New Hampshire State Rep, who has been through the battle, came for moral support.

Jim Dixon, Christine LeBlanc, Marie O'Donnell, Kris Mineau, Ed Shanahan, and I also testified. Jim made the point that this petition would be death to dignity and reminded committee members about the loved ones left behind. Many other people whom I did not know spoke and many, many of you submitted written testimony.
As usual, you all came through amazingly! It is such a pleasure to work with people who care about life and are willing to do the work to protect life. Anne

MCFL: Request from MAADPS and another hearing

by: MCFL Press Release

Sun Mar 04, 2012 at 19:47:49 PM EST

Robin Loughman, Chair of the Massachusetts Alliance Against Doctor Prescribed Suicide, has asked us to send you the request below.

If you reply to us, we'll be happy to forward.  I am excited to see all the good ideas out there.

########
Many of you have offered to testify in person on Tuesday or to submit written testimony against H3884.

The testimony we have seen is excellent.  The points people are making will be very helpful for everyone.  Your testimony is worth posting on our website nodoctorprescribedsuicide.com  so that the rest of us can benefit from the points you make.

Please email your testimony by pressing "reply" so that is can go on the site.

Thank you,
Robin Loughman, Chair, MADDPS
##########

Also, another hearing has just been scheduled for Thursday, March 8th!  It is about our bill which will allow you to check off to have your tax money, which currently pays for abortion, to be used instead to fund the Baby Safe Haven program.

This is a win/win bill.  If you are able to come to the State House again, that would be wonderful.  If not, would you drop a brief email supporting H 1683 to The Joint Committee on Revenue (Chairs: Rep. Jay Kaufman, Jay.Kaufman@mahouse.gov and Sen. Katherine Clark Katherine.Clark@masenate.gov).

With these hearings, all of our bills in the Massachusetts legislature will have been heard for this session.  Thank you for all you have done on these bills and on federal legislation, which is no where nearly done!

MCFL: DPS HEARING DATE and meeting correction

by: MCFL Press Release

Wed Feb 08, 2012 at 19:05:08 PM EST

We just learned that the Judiciary Committee will hear the Bill, which is the same as the ballot question on doctor prescribed suicide, H3884, on March 6th at 1:00pm. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend. We will need a major presence. The legislature could pass H3884 and it would be all over.

I listed the wrong date for the lawyer's meeting with Jennifer Popik. The actual date is Thur, Feb 16th at 6:00pm at the MCFL office.

We are changing the date for the nurses' meeting so that you nurses will have more time to reach out before the hearings. There will be another nurses' meeting in the western part of the state later.

Also, because the hearings are close, we invite all pharmacists to attend the nurses' meeting. The process for developing Nurses Against Doctor Prescribed Suicide and the information members need will be the same for the Pharmacists.

All the correct information is now listed below. The actual fight is beginning. We are ready. We need to get moving.

If you are a doctor, please visit www.doctorsagainstsuicide.com. Drs. John Howland, Mark Rollo, and many others are doing a stellar job of identifying doctors in the state who are opposed to DPS. I know you will want to work with them.

If you are a lawyer or law student, you are invited to the MCFL office at the Schrafft Center in Charlestown at 6:00pm on Thursday, February 16th for a special evening. Jennifer Popik, JD, from the Robert Powell Center for Medical Ethics in DC, is coming to give a legal analysis of the proposed law in Massachusetts. Jennifer and the Center have been involved in all the other states where DPS has come up. She will go into many interesting aspects of the proposal. I hope this will help prepare you to speak out and write Letters to the Editor. Please reply to this email or call 617-242-4199, X 230 to let us know you are coming because we will provide a light supper.

If you are a nurse or a pharmacist or a student in either area, you are invited to the MCFL office at the Schrafft Center in Charlestown from 9:30am to 11:30 am on Saturday, February 18th. We will talk about the petition, it implications for you and what you can do as an individual and as part of a nurses' or pharmacists' group. Please note that retired professionals are every bit as necessary as those still in the field.

There is no protection to keep pharmacists from being required to fill those deadly prescriptions!

Please pass this along to all doctors, lawyers, nurses, and pharmacists whom you know and anyone else who might want to testify. Thanks! Anne

MCFL: Wayne: Wow! More on the March

by: MCFL Press Release

Thu Jan 26, 2012 at 20:35:40 PM EST

Yesterday, Wayne Cockfield spoke to legislators and aides about the doctor prescribed suicide ballot question at the MCFL Legislative Breakfast.  Groups of nursing students were in the State House, so he spoke to them also. Wayne made an amazing case against the whole concept of doctor prescribed suicide. He got a standing O from the legislators and rapt attention from the students.

Last night he spoke in Worcester to a large group of local pro-lifers. Allison LeDoux arranged for the beautiful, accessible hall. Wayne was able to speak for longer and gave people really useful ideas. He explained that "compassion" means "to suffer with" and stated: "medical abandonment is not compassion"
Today and tomorrow, Wayne has interviews. One of them is live on The Good Catholic Life, radio 1060 from Friday from 4-5pm in the Boston area.

You will want to hear Wayne at Faneuil Hall on Sunday from 2 - 4pm. I know you will enjoy hearing the Treblemakers from the Montrose School also.

March for Life: the police told marchers that the numbers this year were higher than the 400,000 last year. Some articles are reporting one half million marchers. See the March in one minute.

I'll be looking for you on Sunday at the Assembly. Anne

MCFL: Our candidate wins in 12th Bristol!

by: MCFL Press Release

Wed Sep 21, 2011 at 11:41:00 AM EDT

Keiko Orrall, who was backed by the MCFL State PAC, won the special election for State Representative.   The seat had been held by the opposition party for 30 years and her opponent had strong union backing.

Madeline McComish reports that the PAC made 800 phone calls and mailed to 800 plus households. She asked me to thank all of you who voted and those who contacted people in the district. The difference was less than 300 votes! Keiko will be another State House vote to protect life.

I thought you might enjoy the report from the State House News. Anne

GOP'S ORRALL TAKES HOUSE SEAT LONG HELD BY DEMOCRATS

By Kyle Cheney
STATE HOUSE NEWS SERVICE

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, SEPT. 21, 2011.....Buoyed by strong turnout in her hometown of Lakeville, Keiko Orrall, a Republican and former member of the community's finance committee, won a special election to the Massachusetts House, flipping the 12th Bristol seat from Democratic control for the first time in more than 30 years.

Orrall defeated Roger Brunelle, a Middleborough Democrat with strong labor backing, capturing an estimated 54 percent of the vote in a special election to fill the 12th Bristol seat vacated in June by Stephen Canessa, a New Bedford Democrat who left to take a post at Southcoast Health Systems.

Voters in Lakeville, a community of about 10,000 residents, turned out in greater numbers than nearby New Bedford precincts, choosing Orrall by a three-to-one margin. Brunelle won New Bedford handily but the small turnout, less than 11 percent, helped propel Orrall to victory. In addition to New Bedford and Lakeville, the district includes portions of Freetown, Taunton and Middleborough.

Overall Orrall won 2,135 votes to Brunelle's 1,761, according to unofficial returns. Sen. Scott Brown endorsed her candidacy during the campaign.

Articles of importance that you won't see in the MSM:

Our good pro-life ally, Jack Cashill, has been following things in Kansas.
http://www.google.com/search?q...

There is also a great piece of news. There is finally a ban on human embryo patents!
http://www.nationalrighttolife...

Marriage makes even more of a difference than you thought.

We have a chance to elect another pro-life State Rep at a special election on Tuesday, Sept. 20 in the 12th Bristol District which includes parts of Freetown, New Bedford, Taunton, Lakeville, and Middleboro.

Keiko Orrall is a strong pro-lifer. Right now we have about 67 pro-life votes in the House. We need 81. This is an excellent chance to increase the pro-life representation.

Madeline McComish, Chair of the MCFL State PAC, tells me the PAC has mailed to 800 households in the district and will be calling them on Sunday. If you know people in the district, please be sure to contact them to vote on Tuesday, Sept 20 for Keiko Orrall.

I know you will help Keiko! Thanks, Anne

MCFL: You need to be at Health Curriculum Frameworks hearings 9/20/11!

by: MCFL Press Release

Wed Sep 14, 2011 at 17:07:49 PM EDT

The Mass. Health Curriculum Frameworks are currently the recommendations of the state as to what should be taught in public schools; local districts have some discretion as to how they are implemented.

Recent legislative attempts have been made to make Health a core curriculum subject, thereby making implementation of the Frameworks mandatory in all school districts. No one is opposed to Health education per se (nutrition, exercise, safety), but concealed within the Frameworks is a radical form of sex education which includes getting abortions without parental knowledge or consent.

The Education Committee will hold public hearings next Tuesday morning, September 20th from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm in Room A-2.

Please:

1) Read about the Frameworks

2) Write your reasons for opposing

3) Come to the State House to testify

4) If you cannot attend, please send a copy of your testimony to Rep Alice Peisch, Alice.Peisch@mahouse.gov and to your own State Rep.

You probably noticed that the hearings are in that hot room so dress cooly. Every one of us needs to participate.
Thank you! Anne

MCFL: Public Health Comm. - Pro-lifers Not Allowed to Testify

by: MCFL Press Release

Wed May 11, 2011 at 15:48:30 PM EDT

 Flash:  Peter Durant won the State Rep race in the 6th Worcester.  Unfortunately, Jim Dixon was defeated.  Madeline McComish and the Sate PAC did a great job!

Linda, Eva, and I, along with many other pro-lifers, attended the hearings yesterday of the Joint Committee on Public Health.  We all duly registered to testify and entered at 10:00 am.

If you have been to hearings, you know that legislators who have sponsored  bills testify first, followed by other legislators, then by panels and the general public.  Thankfully, Rep Jim Lyons, not a sponsor, testified against HB 629 that would allow adults other than the parents, like school employees, to approve abortions for minor girls and would lower the age of "minor" from 18 to 16.

Rep Betty Poirier sponsored a bill to cease funding embryonic stem cell research.  She was in the room but not recognized.   About 12:20 pm, the Sen. Chair Susan Fargo announced that the Committee had to be out of the room by 1:00pm.  She made no attempt to cover bills that had not been addressed.  She just finished with the panel that was "on".

Of course, we had already submitted our written testimony.  Our first reaction was to demand another hearing.  I think the most effective way to influence the Committee, however, will be for them to receive testimony from hundreds of people like you.

These are our positions on the bills.

Please copy and paste - and add something if you wish.  Email to each member of the committee.  You can address to Susan Fargo and Jeffrey Sanchez and Bcc the others.  That way you have to send only one email.   It would have been a very good idea to send something anyway, but the fact that our issues were not addressed makes it imperative!  

Thank you for all your great work!  Anne

MCFL: Bill would wipe out Parental Consent for minors seeking abortions

by: MCFL Press Release

Thu May 05, 2011 at 16:00:39 PM EDT

On Tuesday, May 10, 2011 at 10:00am in Room A - 1, the Joint Committee on Public Health will hear testimony on two very important pro-life bills which we support and three anti-life bills, one of which would allow almost anyone to refer a minor girl for an abortion, which we oppose.

Eva Murphy, MCFL Legislative director, Linda Thayer, MCFL Vice-President, Educational Affairs, and I will testify.  We invite you to testify also.  It is most effective to appear in person but sending written testimony is also very helpful.

We support:

HB 611, sponsored by Rep. Betty Poirier (R-North Attleboro), which bans embryonic stem cell research in the state, and prevents embryos from being used in research from the point of fertilization. This bill would end ESCR which kills little human beings and doesn't work and encouragethe use of effective and moral  adult skin cells.

MCFL: Maria Talks doctors site? Legislators call for de-funding!

by: MCFL Press Release

Wed Apr 27, 2011 at 12:31:57 PM EDT

Maria Talks asks:  Do people really have abortions?

The Herald wrote last week:  "Maria tells teen readers abortion is a 'hot topic' but that the procedure is 'more common than you think' and 'safe and effective, though some people may experience temporary discomfort.'  The site's discussion of risk is limited to advising that it is better to get an abortion sooner rather than later."

This afternoon, the site says:  Yes.  It has been estimated that as many as four out of every 10 women in the United States have had at least one abortion by the time they turn 40 years old.

MT was down this morning - could it have been to change some evidence?

PRESS CONFERENCE:  This morning a bi-partisan group of state legislators held a press conference to announce that they are sending a letter to the Governor demanding that MT be taken down and de-funded.  They will deliver the letter tomorrow because they expect to add to the fifty signatories.

Re. Marc Lombardo (R-Billerica) is leading the effort.  He spoke, as did Reps. Colleen Garry (D-Dracut), Elizabeth Poirier (R-North Attleboro), and Stephen DiNatale (D-Fitchburg).  Also spearheading the letter are Reps.  James Lyons (R - North Andover) and John Rogers (D-Norwood).  Other lawmakers at the press conference included Reps Geoff Diehl (R-Whitman), Donald Wong (R-Saugus), George Ross (R-Attleboro), Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton), Angelo D'Emilia (R-Bridgewater), David Vieira (R-Teaticket), Kevin Kuros (R-Uxbridge), Richard Bastien (R-Garnder), Viriato DeMacedo (R-Plymouth), Don Humason (R-Westfield), and Jay Barrows (R-Mansfield).  Read more.

John Triolo, our Assistant Legislative director, provides this video of the press conference.

John also reminds you that you can "Ask the Governor" on Thursday at 9am with Jim and Margery on 96.9 on the radio dial.  Email your questions now  askthegovernor@969bostontalks.com or call during the show, 617.822.9600.  Please ask about MT - parental consent, lack of scientific information, advocacy of sexual activity and abortion for minors, when he is going to deal with this, etc.  The prior emails about MT might help you.

Tomorrow I'll have the entire list of legislators signing the letter.  Please be thinking of questions.  There are some Gov. Patrick certainly should answer!  Anne

MCFL: State Affairs

by: MCFL Press Release

Tue Apr 05, 2011 at 11:45:10 AM EDT

We expect Committee hearings on our bills to be announced any minute.

Our five bills have been referred to three committees: Judiciary (Laura's Law, Sex selection, PBA), Public Health (fetal pain), and Revenue (Taxpayer option).

We are especially grateful to the following legislators who sponsored all five of our bills: Rep. Elizabeth Poirier, Rep. Nicholas Collins, Rep. James Lyons, Rep. John Rogers, and Sen, Richard Ross.

We are also looking at a fetal homicide bill sponsored by Rep. Bradley Jones, strengthening of the Baby Safe Haven Law by Rep. Steven Levy, and fetal anesthesia bill by Rep. Vincent deMacedo.

MCFL will be opposing the Health Care Frameworks which mandate offensive sex ed including teaching children how to obtain abortions without their parents' knowledge or consent.  We will also oppose a proposed Doctor Prescribed Suicide bill.

Please read about our bills so you can discuss them and, we hope, testify.

Reminder:  Student Lobby Day is Tuesday, April 19th at 10 am in Gardner Auditorium.                                            

Special election primaries for state representative in the Sixth Worcester District and state representative in the Tenth Middlesex District are next Tuesday, April 12th.  The general special election is May 10th.  We have candidates in both races!

Tenth Middlesex: Jim Dixon (R) is pro-life, actually a former member of the MCFL Board.  None of the other candidates has returned our Questionnaire.

Sixth Worcester:  Peter Durant ( R) is pro-life
Joanne Powell (D) is pro-life
Geraldo Alicea (D) takes a 100% pro-abortion position.

Madeline McComish, Chairman of the MCFL State PAC tells me the PAC has done phone calls
and mailings into the Worcester District for the primary and will be working in both districts for the special election.

The 2009 Back to School issue of the MCFL News featured an analysis of the "Get Real" curriculum designed by Planned Parenthood.  We featured the story to warn people that PP was marketing the program to most of the towns in the state.  Since then, Haverhill pro-lifers were able to keep out this highly offensive program, which tells children how to get abortions and advocates illegal activity, out of their schools, but many school departments bought it (literally) and are starting to implement.  Groups of parents, such as those in Needham, www.needhamsense.org. are working to keep out these programs.  Other groups are forming.

When the MCFL News came out, many people checked to see what was going on locally.  It is time to check again to see if any new "Wellness" programs are planned in your town.

This is another way you can defund Planned Parenthood by cutting into their business!  Anne
