Say NO to “Infanticide”

A bill currently before the state Legislature fails the feeblest standard for a decent and humane society.

The bill, S.1209 in the Senate and H.3320 in the House, rejects any pretense of offering the most basic humanitarian assistance to fully-developed, fully-born, babies.

Under the radical infanticide bill, absolutely nothing would be done to protect or even comfort a baby who survives a late-term abortion.

In addition, the extreme infanticide bill removes all practical limitations on aborting unborn babies. These abortions are frequently referred to as late-term or partial-birth abortions.

Another radical measure in the bill eliminates family communication. Teenage children are conferred with complete autonomy in the realm of abortion. Instead, a child ages 12 through 17, or any age, would be permitted to have an abortion, without ever discussing the options with a parent, loved one, or family member.

Everything is done in secrecy. Even the payment to the abortionist would be made with taxpayer funds without parental consultation or consent.

Can it really be that a decision by someone under 18 to have an abortion is less significant or traumatizing than smoking a cigarette, drinking a beer, or visiting a tanning salon?

Have we really come to this?

Let’s not go down this extreme and dangerous path. Let’s follow a higher road and join together to protect, rather than reject, the least of those among us.

Now it’s time for voters to ask Sen. Ed Markey: IS IT STILL OK TO HAVE CHILDREN?


That’s the headline question Newsweek is posing in the aftermath of Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blast on Instagram.

Newsweek notes: Ocasio suggested to her 2.5 million followers that the answer was not clear. “There’s scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult. And it does lead young people to have a legitimate question: Is it OK to still have children?” she asked.

The American news magazine further points out: “Ocasio-Cortez introduced the Green New Deal this month along with Democratic Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts.”

These headlines and news stories lead to more questions. Jim Lyons, chairman of the Massachusetts Republican Party, asked today: Does Senator Ed Markey endorse the New York congresswoman’s questioning “Is it still okay to have children?”

Is that part of the so-called “Green New Deal” that Markey whole-heartedly embraces?

Or does Senator Markey repudiate this controversial and dangerous product of the Green New Deal as outlined by Rep. Ocasio-Cortez?

As someone who has held legislative office since Richard Nixon was President of the United States and Spiro Agnew was Vice President, Sen. Markey owes the voters of Massachusetts clarity on this critical issue. Is it really too much to ask of a politician – who, after all, has been making laws that the rest of us must obey – since the time when the top three shows on American television were “All in the Family,” “Sanford and Son,” and “Chico and the Man?”
