In 1981, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court referred to abortion as a “fundamental right” and said that the Massachusetts Constitution afforded a greater degree of protection to that right than did the U.S. Constitution.
This ruling went further by determining that some Massachusetts women, depending on their financial status, had a constitutional right to have their abortions paid for by the taxpayer.
WHAT WE NEED TO DO
Amend the State Constitution
The recently filed petition to amend the state constitution will begin the process of stopping taxpayer funded abortions.
This amendment would remove public funding of abortion from the courts and make it an issue for the legislature.
The amendment would lay the groundwork so that in the future the legislature could vote to stop that funding
