LaRae Jones

A prominent nonprofit that exists to fight domestic abuse, sexual assault and violence against Alaskan children has issued one of its highest awards to a woman who has spent decades of her life fighting for the legal right to kill unborn babies.

AWARE, which partners with community and faith-based groups across Alaska, recently bestowed its “Women of Distinction” award to LaRae Jones who has served on Planned Parenthood’s board of directors, working to expand and defend the killing of preborn Alaskans.

During a March 4 gala reception, Jones was one of four women to be honored by AWARE for her abortion activism.

She has also been active with the Juneau Pro-Choice Coalition, which hosts an annual pro-abortion film festival in Juneau and works to elect pro-abortion politicians.

According to an article by, Jones has led pro-abortion marches and played a “vital role in opening the Planned Parenthood Juneau clinic.”

She’s also an active member of Alaska Women’s Lobby, the Juneau League of Women Voters, and remains a prominent LGBTQ activist through PFLAG and the Juneau Pride Chorus.

In accepting the AWARE award, the abortion activist claimed her life’s work is aimed at the next generation of Alaskan children.

“To our grandchildren, I want you to know that LaRae cares about the world she’s leaving you behind,” she said.

According to the AWARE website, the Women of Distinction award is given to role models who demonstrate a commitment to “improving the quality of life for women and children in Juneau,” and to those who “demonstrated qualities of integrity, dedication, motivation and leadership in the community,” along with a willingness to share her skills and knowledge.

Many faith-based and community groups may be ignorant of the fact that, in addition to fighting domestic abuse, AWARE is a leading proponent of both abortion and the LGBTQ political agenda in communities throughout Southeast Alaska.

The group’s website promotes organizations that push abortion and LGBTQ sexuality.

    Figurehead for the death culture known as liberalism.

  • JM says:

    I’m curious who the “faith based” organizations would be that support AWARE. I went to their website, but couldn’t find it there.

  • Mary says:

    Good question JM. I too wouldine to know who these “faith based” supporters are.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    Which group is this or are both of these websites pointing to the same group? I am confused.

  • Clark says:

    There is no such thing as a ‘preborn Alaskan’.

    To be an Alaskan, you have to be BORN here or make a conscious choice to move here and become a resident. It’s right there in our Constitution.

  • Lucinda says:

    Both abortion and LBGT! Clutch meet pearls.

    • Tamra Nygaard says:

      I have noticed, Lucinda, that you were not aborted. Isn’t it odd that those who most support killing babies somehow survived that holocaust themselves?

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Satan has firmly seated the “me-ism” in so many people. They are so duped by their own selfishness that they forget that they are alive and breathing. Well, maybe not some of these people – the majority though!

      • Becky says:

        Interesting you compare abortion to the holocaust when they aren’t remotely similar. False equivalence much?

        Here is a test of logic for you. If a Muslim immigrant who is pregnant sneaks into Alaska, would you still describe her fetus as a ‘preborn Alaskan’?
