As I write this, the U.S. Senate is considering the nomination of one of the most pro-abortion candidates for Health and Human Services in history, Alex Becerra.

Likely this week, the U.S. Congress will be voting on the mislabeled, Equality Act, that would be horrific public policy for those who care about the rights of unborn Americans.

Federally, it is no surprise that public officials are advancing measures to make it easier for pre-born babies to be aborted. In the Alaska State Legislature, we are often fighting this battle in Juneau against those who see the taking of unborn life as a “fundamental right.”

But what about when Planned Parenthood, an organization that performed 354,871 abortions according to it’s latest report, actively tries to get people elected to office in local races ? What is it they are trying to do ?

In the upcoming Municipality of Anchorage Election taking place on Tuesday, April 6, the largest abortion provider in America is endorsing six candidates. In the race for Mayor, Forrest Dunbar, Bill Falsey and George Martinez have received a stamp of approval from Planned Parenthood. In the School Board contest, Carl Jacobs, Kelly Lessens and Dora Wilson get a thumbs up.

Alaska Family Action is finalizing our annual Values Voter Guide survey that we do across the state and that will be available shortly for the Municipality of Anchorage election. Stay tuned.

But for now, we thought it was important to inform pro-family, pro-life Alaskans as soon as possible about those in the race who are proud to be associated with an organization whose founder, Margaret Sanger, “skillfully crafted her language of caring for children and women while at the same time blatantly spewing her repugnance for the ‘unfit,’ the ‘garden weeds,’ and the “human beings who should never have been born at all.”

Make no mistake about it. Margaret Sanger, a racist and eugenicist, and her vision for Planned Parenthood lives on.

How ironic that liberal, progressive-minded people like these six candidates, who define themselves as tolerant when it suits them, are so proud to associate with and even wave the banner for a group whose founder is also quoted as saying, “the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extinction, of defective stocks — those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.

Abortion has such ugly roots and its fruit is as disdainful and heartbreaking as it has ever been

As you’re preparing yourself for the April 6 election, ask yourself if you want people on the Anchorage School Board comfortable with calling people “human weeds.”  Consider those same candidates’ desire to give books like Planned Parenthood-approved “They Call Me Max” about a gender-confused girl to 3rd graders. The comprehensive sex-ed curricula being advanced by Planned Parenthood across the country actually includes promoting pornography to stay at home youth during the pandemic.

You can’t make this stuff up.

On the mayoral side, these candidates have likely assured Planned Parenthood, based on surveys found in other communities, that they support the Municipality of Anchorage providing funding for abortions, an insurance plan that underwrites abortion and “gender reassignment” procedures along with direct funding from the muni, meaning your taxes and mine, to the abortion giant.

It’s truly mind boggling to comprehend how power, in the hands of those who are not aligned with Biblical truth, can harm a community.  “When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.” Proverbs 29:2

But do not lose hope. We are each called to engage for such a time as this.

    What an asshole.

  • Elizabeth Henry says:

    What happens in Anchorage in this election for mayor and school board is pretty important. We all should be paying attention even if we live outside of the municipality of Anchorage and I would encourage the financial support of conservative candidates. Change truly begins at home and our more local government does indeed trickle up to bigger government representation. Elections matter and now is a chance for some positive change in Anchorage, our biggest city. Whether you live in Matsu, or anywhere else outside of Anchorage, please support conservative candidates! Every dollar counts.

  • Robert C. Weel says:

    I would never dream of supporting any of these Socialist Liberal Left-Wing Assholes! Wake up Anchorage and get a life! Contact Trygve Erikson if you want support!

  • Jeriah Knox says:

    Big people, believing they can attain blessings by spilling the blood of their little ones, have bought into a demonic belief systems, which Christians are called to oppose and destroy.

    Leviticus 20:2-5 (KJV) Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
    And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.
    And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:
    Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.

  • Martha Ethridge says:

    One question needs asking of the ones who believe in abortion… in the case of every position….WHAT IF YOUR MOTHER WOULD HAVE BELIEVED IN ABORTION?

  • Bill says:

    Thank God for separation of church and state! Sanctimonious all in the name moral prejudice. Ill trust science and medicine when it comes to the welfare of children. People of faith have a horrible record at preserving life.

  • EV says:

    So my greatest concern is who in the conservative arena is running in the school boards, mayoral candidates? How are they where are they. Now a days many use conservative platforms then turn and do the opposite of what they committed to do. We see it happening now with other legislators. We need to make sure they are truly working against the liberal agenda.
