With the U.S. Supreme Court on the verge of overturning Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood abortion activists are attempting to mobilize Alaskans to “take action” and “fight” back as part of a national effort that has occasionally incited violence and vandalism.
Earlier this week, Planned Parenthood’s Government Affairs Manager for Alaska, Morgan Lim, sent an action alert to abortion activists across the state. Lim cited the leaked document of the Supreme Court’s draft opinion indicating it is prepared to strike down Roe and let each state decide the abortion question. According to Lim the ruling “shows that our deepest fears are coming true.”
“We’re angry and we’re taking action,” Lim wrote.
A pro-life counter rally is set for May 14 in Soldotna.
Lim aims to channel this anger by recruiting Alaskans to join a May 14 nationwide push to mobilize abortion activists for protests across the country.
In Alaska, Lim envisions that “fight” to include waving signs on May 14 at locations in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau and Homer. Across the United States, however, a number of recent pro-abortion rallies have included violence, vandalism, threating speeches and the storming of churches.
Earlier this week pro-abortion forces gathered outside U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s home, screaming out for “justice,” and threatening, “If we don’t get it, burn it down.” Protesters across the nation are responding to a leaked draft opinion from Justice Alito, indicating that the high court is about to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 48-old ruling that imposed abortion on demand across the nation.

Lim concluded her message by saying that Alaska’s pro-abortion activists “won’t back down.”
“We have been preparing for this,” she said. “We’re ready for this fight.”
In response, pro-life advocates in a number of communities around the United States have held peaceful counter rallies to affirm that unborn children have a fundamental, God-given right to life.
On May 31, pro-life advocates will gather at 5 p.m. at the Soldotna Planned Parenthood (130 East Redoubt Ave.) to affirm the rights of the unborn and to celebrate the permanent closure of the local abortion facility on that same day. Other pro-life rallies will be listed here, if announced.
