The Truth about the MA ACOG Endorsement of Roe Act Infanticide Bill
The Massachusetts branch of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists issued an anonymous endorsement of the Roe Infanticide Bill, House Bill 3320 and Senate Bill 1209. This organization claims that "...by repealing the current medically unjustified barriers to safe, legal abortion, the ROE Act would ensure that safe, legal abortion is available to all Massachusetts women, even if federal protections are undermined or eliminated." Emphasis added.

You can read the full statement here.

Under current law, late-term (ie, medically risky and complex) abortions, abortions performed after 24 weeks of pregnancy, are to be performed in a hospital equipped for general surgery and obstetrical services. Among the many unsafe aspects of this legislation, the Roe Infanticide Bill repeals this safety requirement. 

This industry group claims that requiring late term abortions in a hospital equipped for general surgery and obstetrical services is "medically unjustified" and that it would ensure safe abortions. This is contrary to common sense and medical practice as late-term abortions or even abortions after 13 weeks are considered major surgery.

The Roe Infanticide Bill also repeals reasonable restrictions of US Supreme Court decision,  Roe v. Wade, for the life and physical and mental health of the mother, thereby creating abortion on demand. 

This peculiar statement comes from a group of obstetricians and gynecologists that stand to profit from expanded late-term abortions, without having to incur the costs of using hospitals. This is a profound conflict of interest as the members of this group stand to financially benefit from abortion on demand. 

Please tell your state representative and senator the truth about this endorsement by sending them an email expressing your concern and opposition to the Roe Infanticide Bill. 

Thank you.
