The Alaska Democratic party is betting that state-funded abortion on demand will be a winning issue in the midterms.

The latest “Blue Alaska” email blast, sent out weekly by Alaska Democratic Party Communications Director Matthew Beck, is dominated by the issue of abortion.

In promoting Mary Peltola for U.S. House, Pat Chesbro for U.S. Senate and Les Gara for governor, the Democrats paint them as the only candidates who will ensure that the killing of unborn babies via abortion will continue apace in Alaska.

“Every candidate ADP (Alaska Democratic Party) is supporting this cycle will fight like hell to ensure abortion access remains legal in Alaska,” Beck wrote in the Oct. 26 email to supporters.

The email includes a “Defend Choice” ad featuring radical pro-abortion state legislative candidates Matt Claman, Andy Josephson, Donna Mears, Scott Kawasaki, Maxine Dibert and Ted Eischeid. Also listed as “great” Democratic candidates are pro-abortionists Cliff Groh and Lyn Franks.

Alaska Democrats are not the only ones banking on the abortion issue to drive voter turnout. Abortion has dominated Democratic political ads all across the nation. Since January Democrats have spent nearly $343 million on pro-abortion advertisements.

President Biden has joined the abortion bandwagon. Earlier this week, he announced that his number one priority, if Democrats can expand control of Congress, will be to enact radical abortion legislation that legalizes the practice on the federal level. He also wants to sign legislation in January to commemorate and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original Roe v. Wade ruling, which enabled the killing of more than 60 million pre-born babies in the U.S.

    Maybe I’m naive, but how come women who are not ready to be a parent, can’t place their baby for adoption?????? That’s what they used to do prior to 1973. Why must it always involve killing? Babies removed from the womb during a late term abortion can likely survive with the help of medical technology. Then, the mother can legally relinquish the child to someone else to raise. I understand an un-planned pregnancy can be a bummer and really scary. But I’m alive today because I was placed for adoption. No one is being forced to parent. We need to help young ladies (and the guys, too!) that abortion is not health care. There is a developing human being that ought to have good health care. As for women rights…what about the right of a pre-born female child? If you know someone who is struggling with an abortion decision, please be the person they can talk to, who can encourage them to choose life. Be someone who can help them get the support they need.

    Crying liberals should be ashamed of themselves. MURDERING 60 million babies in 50 years. I thought liberals were against MURDER, and preferred life in prison. Just think, the baby you MURDERED might of been our next president or some high ranking official that could advance your agenda. Oh well too bad you MURDERED them ahead of their time. Think about that.

    The cult of death marches on. Moloch must have his sacrifice. Why anyone of good will would support this is beyond my understanding of ethics, morality, or compassion. People like this are not leaders.

    The only Democrat named Matthew Beck on the AK voter rolls also uses the alias Matthew Moak, and has an extensive criminal histoey for felony forgery and parole violation. Is that surprising at all?

  • Ceak says:

    pro abortion and spouting lies that men can get pregnant/become mothers. The Democrat party is living in an upside down world and trying to make conservatives look like the extremists. May God heal our nation.

  • Andy says:

    This isn’t “ok” none of it is, the selection of candidates based on their approach to abortion is absolutely horrid. This heinous practice has to be abolished and should not even be on a ballot. This is the reason I am voting Palin on the first selection I wont support any candidate who even flounders on this issue, a human life is exactly that, a life.

    They say that what is right is wrong and what is wrong is right; that black is white and whites is black: bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.
    How did we ever get to this point?
