Where labels end and conversation begins

Life Alliance is an all volunteer, community group located in Billerica Massachusetts.

In January of 2019, we submitted a Petitioner’s Bill (H3372) which seeks to limit “on demand” abortions from 24 weeks to 12 weeks, here in the State of Massachusetts. Our hope is that working with our legislators, we, the citizens, can create better abortion laws in order to protect our women, and our unborn. Once the official filing process was complete, H3372 was referred to the Judiciary Committee, and we immediately introduced ourselves as the authors of this Bill. After much communication, we were given a Hearing date for this Fall, 2019, by Senator Eldridge’s office (Senate Chair). Subsequently, this date was changed without any notice to us, which means we missed our chance to be heard by the committee. Although we received multiple apologies from Senator Eldridge’s office for their mistake in not informing us of the date change, they offer no resolution. The committee will not honor the original date scheduled, nor will they reschedule another date.

H3372 deserves a Public Hearing, so Life Alliance is hosting our own Citizen’s Hearing. On Monday, September 16, 2019, we will begin hearing public testimony at 11:30AM, in Room #437, inside our State House in Boston. Once the hearing is complete, or beginning at 2:30 (whichever comes first), we will immediately screen the movie “Unplanned.” We have extended an invitation to each member of The Judiciary Committee, asking them to do the job (we elect them to do), and respectfully listen to the public testimony concerning this issue. Clearly, a system of government that was designed to work for us, is now working against us, and we need to right this wrong.

Things to know:

1. Date: Monday, September 16, 2019, beginning at 11:30AM, (Room 437).

2. Please bring a written copy of your testimony so we can add it to the official file of H3372.

3. Please let us know if you will be attending.

4. The maximum capacity is 50 people in the room, so we need to know who will be watching the movie with us or who will be offering testimony.

5. If there is an issue of overflow during testimony, people will be allowed to filter in-and-out of the room in order to give everyone a fair chance to speak.

March 2019

There are literally no words to express our appreciation to the good people at our Catholic churches here in Billerica. We all joined together and raised over $8, 561.72. This generous donation was hand delivered on March 4th to the Heartbeat Pregnancy Care Center next door to us in Burlington. This is a true testament to the power of goodness and kind hearts. 💙💖
Thank you to all who helped!

February 2019

It was a cold Friday night on February, 8th and still the room was jam packed to hear Kathy Hill speak about the consequences and heartbreak of abortion. Our entire team attended this very important talk, and we are honored to learn how we can help those in our community find the resources they may need to heal.

And please know, one of the most important things we all took away from this presentation is this...most women, if/and when they are faced with an unplanned, crisis pregnancy, want to be told to have their baby. They want to be encouraged and supported. We are never to be afraid to tell them to choose life instead of having an abortion. In their moment of helplessness, hopelessness, weakness and fear...what they really want to hear is that they are strong, they are able, they are capable, and they would be a great mother. They just need to hear that they will have loving support from their friends and family.
