After 46 years, countless laws and vigilant prayers, abortion is still performed in Alaska and across most of the United States. On Thursday, Jan. 9, former U.S. Senate candidate and past president of Alaska Right to Life – Bob Bird – will deliver a presentation on “The Proper Constitutional Understandings of Abortion at both State & Federal Levels.”
Bird will look at why abortion is still considered the law of the land – both in Alaska and the nation – and what practical steps can be taken to effectively end the practice.
Hosted by the Anchorage chapter of Catholics United for the Faith, the event is free and open to the public. It will take place Thursday, Jan. 9 in the upper room banquet hall at Gallo’s Mexican Restaurant in Anchorage (8615 Old Seward Hwy.). The talk begins at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. for those who wish to order food and drinks. The evening will include a 45-minute presentation, followed by a question and answer session until 8:30 p.m. For more information, click here.
