Abortion activists in Juneau are hosting their annual LunaFest film festival in an effort to raise funds to promote abortion across Alaska. The event also aims to celebrate the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion across the nation – leading to more than 61 million deaths of unborn babies over the past 46 years.
The annual event is hosted by the Juneau Pro-Choice Coalition, an activist group that tries to elect extreme pro-abortion candidates to the Alaska Legislature, the Juneau Assembly and the Juneau School Board.
The Jan. 17 film festival Juneau’s Centennial Hall begins at 5:30 p.m. A local bookstore, Hearthside Books, is partnering with the pro-abortion festival by selling tickets at its two locations in Juneau.
LunaFest films typically promote transgenderism, abortion access and the controversial political agenda of the LGBTQ movement. Nationally LunaFest events are sponsored by the Clif Bar company, which helps put on similar film festivals around the nation.
