With Alaska lawmakers now back in Juneau for the start of the 2023 legislative session, pro-abortion activists are planning to aggressively inundate legislators with phone calls, visits and even personalized Valentines Day cards advocating for the LGBTQ political agenda and imposing explicit sex-ed curriculum in all state-run schools. Activists are also committed to opposing any bills they deem “anti-trans” or “anti-abortion.”

“Today marks the start of the 2023 legislative session in Alaska and this year, like the many before it, we’re fighting for safe, affordable and accessible reproductive health care,” Planned Parenthood State Director Rose O’Hara-Jolley said in a Jan. 17 email to abortion supporters. “We’ve seen what can happen when we work together: we get sh*t done.”

Planned Parenthood, which is the largest abortion business in Alaska, is holding a series of upcoming legislative planning sessions throughout the state in order to mobilize pro-abortion allies for what they see as an opportunity to maintain or expand access and funding for the legalized killing of pre-born Alaskans. These sessions will also include tactics aimed at persuading lawmakers to get on board with advancing LGBTQ sex-education in state schools.

While the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade last summer, thereby returning the abortion question to each state to decide, abortion law remains unchanged in Alaska. Thanks to the Alaska Supreme Court, abortion is legal in the 49th state through all nine months of pregnancy, and the state also uses public funds to pay abortion doctors to kill preborn Alaskans.

There have been calls in some conservative quarters, however, for Gov. Mike Dunleavy to withhold state payments for abortion, and for lawmakers to back him up in the face of activist judges.

Whether Planned Parenthood’s agenda will find footing in the 33rd State Legislature is yet to be seen. Despite GOP state senators holding a numerical majority of 11-9, eight Republicans have sided with nine Democrats to create a bi-partisan ruling caucus that has excluded the most conservative senators. The State House, which is split 21-19 in favor of Republicans, has yet to create a majority, but efforts are underway to create a similar “bi-partisan” coalition which would marginalize the influence of conservative Republicans.

On the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, Planned Parenthood is gathering in Anchorage on Jan. 22 to make Valentine’s Day cards for Alaska lawmakers, demanding that they pass pro-abortion legislation, while expanding all forms of birth control, including those which can cause early abortions. The so-called valentines will be hand delivered on Valentine’s Day to each lawmaker.

    Sad and disgusting. Support Alaska Family Alliance as they will lobby for life, truth and realty. As for the explicit sex Ed in our schools —— “If anyone causes one of these little ones —-those who believe in me —-to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.” Matthew 18:6.

    Correction! Now Alaska Family Action.

    Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion business in America, not just Alaska. They are in the “business” of abortion, not truly assisting women with any type of family planning. What is the end goal? Low American citizen births, less baby joy in our lives (face it, we could all use a baby cuddle), more suicides by our youth? Their target “customer” are women of color. That scares me more, their goal, fear….???
    “ Planned Parenthood is gathering in Anchorage on Jan. 22 to make Valentine’s Day cards for Alaska lawmakers.” A day of love turned into a day of hate, what is this goal? Influence-peddling our legislatures to impose their new world order on we the citizens of Alaska! Wake up Alaska

    “Planned Parenthood”; Has there ever been a more deceptive title?

  • Johnny Furlong says:

    Lobbying for murder of babies and child molestation and mental abuse…they should be run-out of town with pitchforks and torches from the citizens and legislatiors… evil is good and good is evil.
    And don’t pander to their nonesense… it is the “non-hetrosexual” movement… I am not cow towing and using their nonsensical verbiage.

    While europe admits, now, children shouldn’t be groomed, coarcsed, nor taken seriously by same-sex and trans interests stating they going through a phase, america and canada are always late arriving what europe believed 23 years earlier. 23 years later america and canada will admit what homosexual advocates did today it was wrong cause we always late arriving at the party 10 years behind europe.
