Shawn Dooley Promoting
Bill to Encourage, but Not Discourage, Bisexuality/
Known liberal Republican Rep. Shawn Dooley (Norfolk) has proposed “An Act Banning Conversion Therapy,” which would land therapy providers in the hot seat, “subject to discipline by the appropriate licensing board, which may include suspension or revocation of license,” should a school therapist or other discuss in any way or discourage in any way a child from participating in bisexual and homosexual acts and activities.
In the 508-word proposed bill, Dooley has yet to allow for any concessions to non-public schools, or other entities which might teach that participation in certain activities should be looked at with caution, and/or should be discouraged. At this time, the bill is co-sponsored by Democrat Rep. Michael J. Soter (Bellingham).
Legislators Seek to
Up Until Moment of Birth – Perhaps Beyond…
Following a vote in New York State which heralded in a new age of death until birth, Mass. Democrat Rep. Patricia Haddad (Somerset) has garnered a frightening amount of support for her pro-death bill, “An Act Removing Obstacles and Expanding Access to Women’s Reproductive Health.
Under Rep. Haddad’s bill, women will be allowed to kill their unborn babies up until the moment of birth, perhaps beyond.
The bill echoes similar bills being pushed by progressive/socialist legislators who strive to ensure that all legal measures are in place to make sure a would-be-mother can murder her baby up until the moment of birth. With regret, there is no mention in the bill’s draft of funding to help with the mental damage which mothers of dead babies most likely will need.
Co-sponsors of the bill, all Democrats with the exception of two Republicans, Rep. James Kelcourse (Amesbury) and Rep. Donald Wong (Saugus), are:
