With just one week until the general election, here are a few truths to chew on. 

— Protecting innocent, unborn children is our top ministry goal. I hope it is yours as well.

— The Alaska Supreme Court has made up a “right to abortion” in our State Constitution and is killing any laws that protect the least of these.

— A State Constitutional Convention is without a doubt our best option for clarifying that our founding document is silent on the issue of abortion or its funding.

— The George Soros-funded 1630 Fund, a massive, DC-based, dark money group, is pouring millions of dollars into Alaska to scare people into voting “no.” The ConventionYes side has raised less than $50,000. A true David v Goliath battle.

— We are seemingly against insurmountable odds but EVERY SINGLE DAY, Alaskans are changing their minds and realizing that the Soros-funded fear is unfounded and that a Constitutional Convention is our best strategy for removing the court from this issue to enact pro-life legislation.

— The radio ad below is the quickest, most effective message we have right now to remind prolife Alaskans to vote yes. And we need your financial help RIGHT NOW to get this ad on stations all across the Great Land.

Help us fight this battle to the very end. Every donation will help us air this ad on radio stations from Ketchikan to Kotzebue. There are literally thousands of Alaskans right now who are deciding on how they should vote on the Constitutional Convention and this ad will help them make an informed, prolife vote.

Radio ads range from $25 to $250 per 60 second spot depending on the station and time slot. Every single donation will help us turn another voter toward a YES vote that will give us an opportunity to protect innocent, unborn Alaskans. We need you now more than ever. Please be generous.

Donations towards this radio campaign have to be made to Alaska Family Action, our political arm, and are therefore not tax-deductible.

    Outstanding message. Vote “YES” on ballot measure #1. It’s the only way to keep Alaska Alaskan. Otherwise we’ll become another stooge state, bowing to George Soros.

  • Lee Keel says:

    Donate generously what you can fellow Alaskans and human beings for this radio ad. Abortion is tragic for the baby and the mother. We must be the voice to fight the people that believe life does not matter, we must take the fight to them. If we don’t stand and fight for these little new future voices who will? We need to spread the word far and wide. Do what is right. “YES” on measure #1.

    Today (10/31) here in Fairbanks, we received a card in the mail with the message opposing the Constitutional Convention (CON CON). This message smeared the Alaska Family Council and Bob Bird’s organization, AK Independence Party. The message was that there were only two organizations FOR for a CON CON and a vast number of Chamber of Commerce organizations opposed. In addition many liberal/leftist organizations were listed. The League of Women Voters is very left-leaning as is the environmentalist organization. Pitting organizations against us is deceptive in that we do not even know how many are in each organization. In a past election, years ago, we found that 6 organizations against an issue turned out to be the same six people in the many so-called organizations.

    On this card really faintly written you may have noticed the three main sponsors participating in the vote NO movement were headquartered in Washington DC.: :” (1) The sixteen thirty fund” , Washington DC; “the National Education Association, Washington DC, , and the “IBEW PAC, a union, Washington D.C. These three sponsors are very interested in what the State of Alaska is doing politically. Hmmmm. The unions have forced dues requrements which means that the real workers have no control over what the union money is paying for. Is anybody smelling a “swamp” yet? The NEA has a conflict of interest endorsing anything political.

    The problem for the union bosses is losing control of dominance in Alaska public affairs and in America. because of the amendments which will be offered. School Choice/parental rights, Pro-life legislation and blocking the state from funding any abortions, and changing the way judges are appointed so it is possible to pass sensible legislation without it being blocked by the Alaska Supreme Court. If the courts were doing their job we would not be forced to do rank/file voting this year. The convention would amend the law to remove it. Alaska Watchman has printed many, many authors’ reasons for voting YES. The vote YES group is working with $43,000 and the opponent is working with millions to oppose ConCon. Be praying that truth will come out, that our election will be honest and we need to give God the glory credit for the positive work that is being done by “David” in spite of “Goliath” and the Philistines. Keep praying for truth to be revealed, and honest elections.

        On this list I added, I can see where big money (such as Soros money!) could influences votes in those organizations. Sad to see!
