Abortion supporters in the liberal state have been pushing a measure that pro-lifers warn would crush every abortion restriction in current state law.

C.J. Williams of Massachusetts Citizens for Life tells OneNewsNow it has failed in committee every time an attempt has been made in the past.

“It is a bill that would legalize passive infanticide,” Williams warns, “meaning doctors would be able to let babies born alive during abortions die on the operating table.”

It would also drop medical safeguards for women who undergo dangerous, late-term abortions and also drop parental consent laws in the state.

Under current law, abortions are not legal starting at the 24th week of pregnancy but the measure would legalize abortion through all nine months.

To obtain passage, activists changed their strategy and now a Democrat, Rep. Claire Cronin, “repackaged” the abortion bill as a “health care” amendment, Amendment 759, to the state budget, Williams says.
