Dear Friend of the Family,
Even as we battle sexual indoctrination in schools, the Legislature is poised to take up the issue of assisted suicide next week. Read on to discover how you can help us win these fights.
The Sex Ed Mandate
Many parents, pastors, lawyers, and school board members expressed strong opposition to the Sex Ed Mandate at the Education Committee’s hearing yesterday, and MFI staff including myself, Michael King, and Jessica Richardson offered testimony against the bills.
But Planned Parenthood-backed legislators, Rep. O’Day (D-West Boylston), Sen. DiDomenico (D-Everett) and the Planned Parenthood staff and minions were also there making it sound as though the Sex Ed Mandate was the most innocent, best-intentioned legislation ever proposed.
That’s why your legislators must hear from you right away. Even if you testified, your legislators still need to hear from you again.
Please take 30 seconds to visit our Action Center to email your legislators or make a phone call to tell them to oppose HB544/SB268, the Sex Ed Mandate bill.
HB544/SB268 would allow the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to mandate content contained in its newly adopted controversial Comprehensive Health and Physical Education Framework. As explained in a prior blog post, the Framework would have schools indoctrinate children in radical sexual and gender ideologies as early as Kindergarten and expose minors to graphic sexual content such as how to engage in “safe” anal sex and oral sex. It would also teach how to get an abortion without parental consent.
Speaking about the recently approved Health Framework, Jessica Richardson, Communications and Research Assistant at MFI, noted in her testimony, “Thousands of MA parents opposed the Framework, but BESE passed it anyway, displaying an allegiance to activist ideology over citizen concerns. You, as elected officials, have a responsibility to make a different decision.”
She reported in an earlier blog post on the adoption of the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) Framework that nearly 54% of comments received by BESE were opposed to the proposed Framework.
BESE, an unelected and largely unaccountable board, ignored your opposition. Don’t let the Legislature ignore it!

Physician Assisted Suicide Hearing Announced this Morning
Once again, the pro-suicide lobby is pushing physician-assisted suicide in Massachusetts. The Joint Committee on Public Health announced this morning that they have scheduled a hearing on the Physician Assisted Suicide bill, HB2246/SB1331 for Friday, October 20, starting at 9:00 AM.
Sign up to testify against the physician-assisted suicide bill by clicking here. The deadline for registering to testify virtually is this upcoming Tuesday, October 17 at 5:00 PM. If you are testifying virtually you MUST register by this deadline. If you plan on testifying in person, you are strongly urged to register by the deadline also.
Physician-assisted suicide has been defeated in Massachusetts for over a decade. We can defeat it again, but we need your help!
For our families,
