Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of abortions in Alaska, sees Forrest Dunbar as a champion of its radical agenda. The group is now urging voters to elect the far-left assemblyman as the next mayor of Anchorage.

“We are excited to tell you that we have endorsed Forrest Dunbar in the upcoming runoff election on May 11,” said Jess Cler, the Alaska director of Planned Parenthood’s political action committee.

Cler’s April 21 email hails Dunbar as a “first line of defense” for so-called “reproductive rights,” a euphemism Planned Parenthood often employs when claiming the right to kill unborn babies through abortion.

Cler opposes the pro-life mayoral candidate Dave Bronson who will take on Dunbar in a head-to-head runoff May 11.

While Anchorage mayors don’t have much control over abortion policy or access, they can partner with groups like Planned Parenthood and others to funnel grants and support to pro-abortion activists. Bronson has said he will not use city funds or resources for this purpose.

Cler’s email states: “Forrest Dunbar is the leader we need for the future of Anchorage, not Dave Bronson who would take us backwards.”

She concludes by calling on activists to fight for a litany of far-left issues, including “climate justice.”

Ballots for the runoff election will be mailed on May 3, and voters have until 8 p.m. on May 11 to mail them in or drop them off at a vote center in Anchorage. Voters can also cast ballots in person at one of three vote centers.

    Everything about this guy makes me want to puke. A communist in every sense of the word. I hope Anchorage is smart enough to save itself, but I’m not so sure it is anymore.

  • G Aleution says:

    Just say no to Dunbar. Definitely not in favor of: the macabre sales of biologic byproducts of pregnancy or the business of weather interference to weaponize weather causing detriment of plant growth, season norms and food distribution. Plants like carbons. We like plants. Stop weaponizing weather patterns.

  • Neil A DeWitt says:

    Dunbar hasn’t done anything his whole career. That’s exactly what we need. Anchorage has become a sesspool. Only people that go down town are very unintelligent people. Dunbar would fit right in. Just my opinion from what I’ve seen since I’ve been here.

  • Dee Cee says:

    Please, please with every fiber of my being, PLEASE volunteer to help get Dave Bronson get elected. I wish I could say that Anchorage is smarter than this…but unfortunately the interested voters are not. So we need every shred of help getting Dunbar out of the way in order to redirect our future. Please volunteer for Dave Bronson!!!

    Good grief. Words like ‘climate justice’ are nonsensical. Justice for the climate? And the over used ‘reproductive rights’? What a juxtaposition. Unborn children have no justice in comparison to the climate? And reproductive rights are really just justification for zero boundaries or self control, and with any resulting inconvenience eliminated – hopefully with little thought or guilt (part of the lie) as ‘reproductive rights’ far out weigh upholding the preciousness of life.
    Praying fervently God has mercy on Anchorage and sees fit to move in the hearts of voters to vote for the best candidate, Dave Bronson.

    And just like that Dunbar is going to win the mayor race! Like all those candidates endorsed by planned parenthood who won all the school board seats. Anchorage voting base totally got their priorities straight. Let’s get our candidate to the mayoral runoff but neglecting the root cause of the communist problem in the city, which starts with the indoctrination of our children’s.

    It’s all the cheating mail in voting

  • Eric Thomas says:

    Why do you all hate constitutionally protected freedoms so much? If you hate American freedom and your fellow Americans who exercise those freedoms, you don’t belong here. Im sure Russia would welcome you with open arms.

    • Dee Cee says:

      Eric: we hate abortion. It is the murder of an innocent American in the womb. You can have no constitutional freedoms without first having the right to life. Russia has abortion too.

    • Renee says:

      Dunbar doesn’t believe in the Constitution! He doesn’t believe in the freedoms of our country, he believes it was founded by white supremacists and is therefore corrupt and needs to be replaced by a Marxist utopia – the arrogance of these beliefs have led to Russia, China, Cambodia, North Korea, and Venezuela.
      Not to mention, his resume consists only in self-aggrandizement, he’s a career politician and he’s done nothing else!
      The choice is so clear, vote for Bronson!!

    Where is the forensic audit of dominion voting machines? As long as those machines are here, there will never be a fair election!
