Pro-Life Group Asks Massachusetts Gov to Drop Abortion Website

“The commonwealth is using taxpayer money to tell kids how to get a secret abortion, and that’s wrong,” Thayer told the Herald. “This is a misuse of state funds, especially for parents who are taxpayers,” and she called the web site “deception by omission” for describing abortion simply as “when the contents of the womb (uterus) are removed.”
The AIDS Action Committee produced the web site in 2008 using a $100,00 grant from the state Department of Public Health and AIDS Action Committee chief Rebecca Haag, in a statement to the Boston newspaper, defended the contents of the web page.
“We feel strongly that the issues that are addressed through the Maria Talks Web site are essential in safeguarding the general, sexual health of youth by informing them of their risk for unintended pregnancies, HIV and other sexually transmitted infections,” Haag said.
