Massachusetts State Senator Harriett Chandler has introduced a bill to improve abortion access but Anne Fox of Massachusetts Citizens for Life says the legislation would erase pro-life restrictions, such as parent consent, and age restrictions, in the state.

It goes without saying, she says, that parents are involved in medical procedures on their own children.

"If a girl goes and has an abortion, and anything comes up afterwards, who's there to pick up the pieces?" she asks.

"Planned Parenthood does two-thirds of the abortions in Massachusetts," Fox says. "If you are an abortion provider, you're not making any money on abortions done in a hospital, so if abortions are no longer required in the hospital, that helps your bottom line a bit."

The bottom line for the pro-life movement, she says, is the bill open doors for abortion and Massachusetts Citizens for Life will be at the state capitol to fight passage.
