(DISRN.COM) – Massachusetts State Representative Claire Cronin has filed an amendment to the state budget that would enshrine as law the ability to abort a full-term fetus up until the moment of birth. Cronin and her fellow Democrats, who hold staggering majorities in both the State House of Representatives (127-31) and State Senate (36-4), are attempting to pass the controversial legislation after seeing Amy Coney Barrett confirmed to the Supreme Court in October.
The pro-life Massachusetts Citizens for Life objects to the parliamentary move to shortchange the legislative process and enact such a provocative law.
