As Massachusetts steps closer to passing a massive change to abortion legislation, pro-lifers are imploring the governor to step in for the preborn.
Governor Charlie Baker (R) objected, but the measure was attached to a budget bill. And even though that is something representatives in the House and Senate vowed not to do, Michael King of the Massachusetts Family Institute (MFI) tells OneNewsNow both passed the measure.
"The state Senate had passed it 33-7, and the House passed it 108-49," King relays. "So in both the House and the Senate, this absolutely horrific expansion of abortion has been passed by over two-thirds majority in both the House and the Senate."
The bill allows abortion up to birth and removes any requirement that a minor's parents be informed when their child seeks an abortion. MFI is asking Gov. Baker to use his authority to deal with what has transpired.
"He can use a line item veto to make sure that Amendment 759 does not get through in the budget," King suggests.
Since the measure passed with veto-proof margins in both houses, an override could be attempted. But since there was only a five-vote margin in the House, and since many Democrats voted against it, King's organization is calling on Massachusetts residents to ask the governor and other elected representatives to help change some minds toward protecting unborn babies and their mothers.
Meanwhile, a pro-life organization is another step closer to shutting down one of two abortion clinics owned by a late-term abortionist.
For several years now, Created Equal has conducted its Project Weak Link, whose aim is to convince medical waste companies to stop hauling aborted babies from abortion clinics.
"Leroy Carhart, the notorious late-term abortionist in Maryland, has lost another medical waste provider," Created Equal Founder Mark Harrington tells OneNewsNow. "This is the fourth waste provider that we've been able to run off and make them cease providing waste services for Leroy Carhart."
The company, Bio-Haz Solutions, reportedly cancelled its contract because of public pressure to do so. And as Harrington points out, "if you can get them to cease providing that kind of a service," then the abortionists have nowhere to put the babies' remains.
"They're either going to put them in a bonfire or put them down a drain or incinerate them themselves --- all which is illegal," he continues. "And if they're going to do that, they're going to get caught and get shut down."
Project Weak Link has led several successful campaigns against waste haulers in the four years it has been in operation. One resulted in a large waste disposal company, Stericycle, ending its business relationship with abortion clinics.
