Philip D. Moran, Esq., Founder and Past President of Massachusetts Citizens For Life and the Pro-Life Legal Defense Fund of MA.
Topic: Recalling the pro-life movement in Massachusetts since the Value of Life Committee in 1972, Phil Moran reflects upon Roy Scarpato’s 48 years as a leader. Roy was the voice of reason, and a warrior for the cause, which included Founder, President, Treasurer and Chairman of Massachusetts Citizens for Life. He also found the Pro- Life Legal Defense Fund of Massachusetts and the National Right to Life Committee. First big accomplishment was the Doyle-Flynn bill in 1979 prohibiting state government from paying for abortions, which was later overturned by activist MA Supreme Judicial Court. A Boston Latin School and MIT educated electrical engineer, he was married to his high school sweetheart Anne Scannell for 63 years. He and Anne dedicated their Ives to protecting those among us least able to protect themselves, the unborn.
