State Rep Links Massachusetts Legislature’s Support For Abortion With American Revolution

August 4, 2022

A member of the Democratic leadership of the Massachusetts House of Representatives linked the state’s role in starting the American Revolution during the 1770s with the state legislature’s current support for legal and publicly funded abortion.

State Representative Kate Hogan (D-Stow), the speaker pro tempore, touted abortion expansion legislation enacted in Massachusetts in recent years, including the ROE Act bill in December 2020 and the more recent abortion bill enacted last week.

“Massachusetts is, and always has been, a leader in the fight for equality. The Revolution started here. That fire never went out. The Commonwealth continues to be a fierce beacon of hope, and now a sanctuary where women may come for care. We stand as an example for the nation, and we refuse to go back,” Hogan said Thursday, August 4 during a roundtable discussion about abortion with Vice President Kamala Harris.

Hogan, who used prepared remarks, was one of seven speakers during the public portion of the event, which took place at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers hall in Dorchester.

 

New to NewBostonPost?  Conservative media is hard to find in Massachusetts.  But you’ve found it.  Now dip your toe in the water for two bucks — $2 for two months.  And join the real revolution.
