1st Friday Sept. 7

Election Nov 6, 2012, you’ll be voting on a BINDING referendum question on Doctor Prescribed Suicide.
Liking the effort on Facebook:
Following the Campaign on Twitter:

Why vote No on Question 2: Patients are not required to see a psychiatrist or counselor before obtaining the lethal drug—fewer than 7% have been referred for psychiatric evaluation in Oregon. This means ill people with treatable depression can get a life-ending prescription, rather than effective psychological care.

Sep 10 Mon - Christ The King Parish, Pleasant St. Worc, Novena, honoring... St. Joseph, the Patron of a Happy Death!
This annual parish novena will be celebrated on nine successive Monday evenings this fall. It begins on Monday, September 10, at 7:15 p.m. (concluding by 8:00 p.m. each night), and continues through Monday, November 5. Each evening will conclude with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. A short homily will be given each evening and the novena prayers recited by all the people.

The novena, which is open to all who wish to come - from any parish - will seek the intercession of St. Joseph, the Patron Saint of a Happy Death, a very old devotion in the Church. Across our City and region thousands of people are seriously ill and thousands die each year. Our prayer will be directed for them in a special way, and for all their caregivers as well.

The novena, in this its first year, will include prayers that the citizens of Massachusetts turn down doctor-prescribed suicide at the polls this November. We should bring love, care, prayer, hope and proper pain management to family members, and not help them to end their lives through suicide

Bill McCarthy is the Pro-Life State Rep candidate in the Worcester 14th/W.Boylston district. Time to throw out Pro-abortion, Pro-Same-Sex Marriage incumbent Jim O'Day
When we first obtained the 2009 Planned Parenthood application for the Central Massachusetts Title X federal grant, we were very surprised to find recommendation letters from many Central Massachusetts politicians as part of the application. State Representative James O'Day (Worcester - 14th) wrote a recommendation letter. In the grant application, there was a page listing the members of the Central Massachusetts Planned Parenthood Advisory Committee; Rachel McCook, a staffer for James O'Day, was on that committee.

2. Endorsement letter from James O'Day for PPLM to receive Title X grant (2 pages)

State Representative James O'Day (14th Worcester) has long been a leading proponent for the Planned Parenthood facility on Lincoln Street in Worcester (as he calls it, his district). At the state Health Council- PP DON meeting on July 9, 2008, O'Day spoke in favor of the proposed Planned Parenthood facility on Pleasant Street, Worcester
