Statement of the Massachusetts Catholic Conference In Opposition to House Bill 4954 and Senate Bill 2996

A fundamental teaching of the Catholic faith is that an unborn child is a human person with the inalienable right to life and this life must be protected from conception to birth. It is in this light that the Catholic Bishops of Massachusetts have always strongly opposed abortion and all legislative efforts to expand the practice. It is the reason we oppose House Bill 4954 and Senate Bill 2996.
