The Catholic bishops of Massachusetts have released a statement condemning proposed bills in the state legislature that would expand access to abortion and eliminate requiring medical care for an infant who survives abortion.
Baker has recently signed into law a bill that will provide $8 million in state taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood in response to the Donald Trump administration’s new rule that makes a clear distinction between abortion and family planning.
In February, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released the new rule that could block about $60 million in family planning funding to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers who refer girls and women for abortions.
We want to make sure people here in Massachusetts, women, have access to reproductive services, all of them.”
