The legislature is ramming through another abortion expansion act that will turn Massachusetts into the abortion capital of the nation!
HB 5090, an act expanding protections for reproductive rights and gender-affirming care goes beyond abortion and includes abortion and gender-affirming treatments as “legally-protected health care activities.”
Gender-affirming treatments are nothing more that dangerous experimental sex-change therapies such as puberty blockers, hormone therapies, and even sex-change operations to address gender confusion.
The long-term effects of these therapies are unknown and could cause permanent sterilization. That’s why states like Texas consider these treatments as abusive.
The bill will create a scheme for abortion and sex-change treatment providers to perform these procedures in states where they are illegal by allowing the secretary of state to designate Massachusetts addresses for providers of these procedures and individuals, even underaged children, seeking abortions or sex-change treatments.
HB 5090 also tell the Department of Public Health to establish a “statewide standing order” authorizing pharmacists to dispense “emergency contraception.” The “standing order” would be issued by a physician.
This version of the bill also includes the University Abortion Mill bill which will require public universities and colleges to provide chemical abortions. Taxpayer dollars and tuition and fees will be used to fund abortions!
It also has the appearance that a woman, or even an underaged girl from another state, may be able to get an “emergency contraception,” which is really a chemical abortion, without even seeing a doctor!
Unbelievably, it also prohibits law enforcement authorities from working with out-of-state authorities in cases involving abortion or sex-change therapies.
Finally, HB 5090 will require health insurance providers to provide abortions without deductible, copays, coinsurance or other cost sharing requirement.
Email your legislator immediately to say no to making Massachusetts the abortion and sex-change capitol of the nation!
You should also call your legislators at (617) 722-2000 and tell them to vote NO on HB 5090.
