Far left candidates have dominated Juneau’s Oct. 5 election. Early returns show them easily beating out pro-life challengers and most other candidates who did not explicitly state whole-hearted support for abortion.
As of Friday, Oct. 11, 6,382 ballots have been approved with another 2,988 left to tally by Oct. 19.
Five of the six leading candidates were fully endorsed by the Juneau Pro-Choice Coalition (JPCC). In order to receive this endorsement candidates had to state that they would actively work to expand extreme abortion policies in Juneau and publicly support Planned Parenthood’s agenda. This includes affirming support for elective abortions (even for minors), public funding of abortion and mandates requiring hospitals to perform abortions if they receive any public funds.
The JPCC-backed candidates also vowed to oppose any measures that might “hinder, delay or impede access” to abortion, and agreed to support expanding abortion efforts by providing information to children in local schools, including explicit sex education.
