Massachusetts Bubble Bill an Outrage in the Wake of Abortion Death Say "Silent No More" Leaders

Staten Island, NY – Leaders of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, the nation's largest network of women and men testifying to the harm they've endured from abortion, today criticized a bill passed by the Massachusetts Senate that would require pro-life pamphleteers and counselors to stay 35 feet from the edge of an abortion clinic's property.

The bill's passage comes only weeks after a 22-year-old woman died during or shortly after an abortion at a Cape Cod area clinic. An autopsy on the woman is pending.

"That the Massachusetts Senate would move to protect the abortion industry in the wake of Laura Smith's death is appalling," said Georgette Forney, co-founder of SNMAC. "A young woman apparently dies on an abortion table and the Senate's response is to pass a bill saying that the public can't exercise their First Amendment rights to warn women about the dangers of abortion. It’s beyond belief."

"I know literally thousands of women who wish someone had given them an alternative to abortion," added Janet Morana, also a SNMAC co-founder. "The pro-abortion profiteers and their public relations flacks want women to be shielded from everything but their sales pitches. I would hope the Massachusetts House would see through this charade and protect both the First Amendment and women’s right to know their options."

Since the launching of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign in 2003, 2,326 women and men have shared their testimonies publicly at 189 gatherings in 44 states and six countries where more than 15,000 spectators have heard the truth about abortion’s negative aftereffects. More than 4,100 people are registered to be Silent No More. Raising awareness about the hurtful aftermath of abortion and the help that is available to cope with the pain are two of the Campaign's goals.

The Silent No More Awareness Campaign is a joint project of Anglicans for Life and Priests for Life. For more information, please visit our website: www.silentnomoreawareness.org
