Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s parental rights bill will take center stage for a highly anticipated public hearing in the Alaska House Education Committee. Set for March 30, the hearing on HB 105 begins at 5:15 p.m.

The above informational graphic was produced by the Office of Alaska Sen. Shelley Hughes.

Hard left political groups like Planned Parenthood, ACLU, Identity and others are organizing LGBTQ activists to testify against the legislation. Many hard-left activists, both in Alaska and across the nation claim that laws like as HB 105 undermine the alleged “right” of transgender students to conceal their preferred sexual identity from parents.

If HB 105 is approved by the Legislature and signed into law, it would bar school districts, such as Anchorage, from hiding a child’s sexual identity or personal pronoun preferences from parents.

Planned Parenthood Action’s Alaska Director Rose O’Hara-Jolley, sent out an email claiming that the parental rights bill would cause students to “be afraid that their school may out them without their consent.”

Introduced earlier this month, the governor’s legislation requires parental notification before educators discuss sexual matters with students, as well as notification and written parental permission before students are exposed to “gender identity” ideology. It also stipulates that schools get written permission from parents before changing the name or pronouns they use in referring to a child.

Additionally, the bill ensures that schools do not selectively withhold information about a child’s physical, medical, or mental health from parents or guardians unless a “reasonably prudent” person would believe that disclosure of the information would lead to child abuse or neglect.  Finally, the bill looks to safeguard a student’s right to privacy by requiring schools to protect the physical safety and privacy of students in locker rooms and restrooms.

  • Lobo says:

    Parents have responsibilities, spiritually, morally, and legally.. But according to the degenerates,.. no rights ???? Sounds about right for today’s sociopaths.

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    Why are we talking about this ?
    How did we get here?

  • Penny Johnson says:

    The Left has no argument here. They have no legal basis to insert their political agenda between parents and children, and no business in the rearing of children.

    • Lucinda says:

      Right Penny . That task is the responsibility of Christian conservatives.

      • Aunt Sally says:

        Just in case nobody has reminded you lately, Lucinda, you deserve monkey pox.

      • Lobo says:

        So, non-Christian liberal leftists have no responsibilities in “the rearing of children” ? They simply put the “tasks” of rearing children upon the degenerate Drag Queens, and those who have no idea as to what gender they are ??.. Sounds about right from the “Light” Lucinda.

  • Theresa says:

    Is there a link for sending in written testimony?

    • Jim Minnery says:

      Theresa and anyone else interested. You can send one email to and all the members will receive it. They need to be inundated.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Thank you Jim! I saw an article from yesterday at USA Today where the Kentucky Senate overrode the demonrat governor’s veto and passed SB150 anti-trans bill. Good News for the Nation!

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    Is there anything left that is sacred? Can we still assume that we can believe in God? Are we free? We are constantly attacked for exercising our God given rights, like being a mom or dad???! If dunleavy and hughes or any other legislative leaders thinks that this type of issue needs to be put up for debate or contemplated via writing a bill??? They have capitulated and these most basic rights are now submitted to a forum where they are vulnerable!
    To me this is outrageous and completely unacceptable and incompetent!
    Think again

  • jon says:

    LGBTQ are parents just like the conservative parents. Why should the conservatives win in this?

    • Lobo says:

      ” I would ask why not” ? Bank robbers are human just like Bank Tellers, why should the bank robbers be arrested ?

    • George says:

      You are obviously a freak of nature like them.

    • Tamra Nygaard says:

      No, sweetheart, alphabet parents are not just like conservative parents. Conservative parents raise healthy, morally upright and decent citizens who contribute to society instead of trying to burn it down because of their “feelz.” And last time I looked, it takes both a man and a woman to make a kid.

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    Here’s another way to view this: President Trump has said numerous times that they are coming after you!!! I’m just standing in their way!!!
    We plead with dunleavy to stand tall, his response to us in contrast to Trump is I may be tall but I’m not standing between you and them, I’m going to hide behind anything to give me cover. As far as the people are concerned, you’re on your own!

  • Faith, Family, Freedom says:

    Anytime you advocate for the darkness, to keep things hidden, to conceal “preferred sexual identity from parents,” or to hide the real emotional/mental struggle of children from their parents, is wrong! The term they keep using to identify with their cause, “Pride,” depicts an enormous disconnect. The only congruity in their movement with pride is that it was the “cause” of the Fall of humanity and here it is again rearing its ugly head to create the fall of innocence in this world – pride does not hide but pride does destroy! There is no ‘pride’ in lying. There is no ‘pride’ in hiding. There is no ‘pride’ is allowing someone to believe they are something they are not. There is no ‘pride’ in keeping hidden in the darkness the evil of what is truly happening in our world. Parents have every right to know about their child and a responsibility to protect their child from this kind of destructive pride and deceivers cloaked in darkness.

  • Nunya says:

    The left: “let us brainwash and mutilate your kids or well send one of our deranged trannys to kill them! “

  • Mary says:

    Dave, you are correct. Almost. They, whoever they are, are coming after us. But, I am not standing alone. God is on my side and He wins!

  • Sir Comrade says:

    Just search “NAMBLA” and it will give insight to the thinking of the people opposed to HB 150. One of their missions is to eliminate all administrative laws preventing “sex acts” of any sort(ed) and at any age. That equates to destruction of our society. Fortunately, natural law cannot be repealed.

  • Elizabeth Henry says:

    All parents should care about this, no matter their political persuasion. This should unify parents not divide. It makes no sense that any parent would not see this as positive. Maybe we could quit using the descriptive adjectives conservative, liberal, leftist, and just say ‘parents’ as those words do segregate a bit and cause defensiveness. With that said, it angers me to know end that we have to call in. Truly the legislative session needs to be moved to the greater population base area so the majority of represented citizens can attend and be engaged. I have called in before to testify on an issue and waited hours, listening by phone to a very scratchy and hard to hear meeting. This is really unacceptable. As an option, yes, but should not be the norm.

  • CD says:

    A friend listened to 2 1/2 hours of testimony and only 3 were for parental rights. All other calls were against the bill. This is why we don’t have our kids in public school. It’s not about education anymore.

  • Poppy says:

    What parent, would allow the school district to take away their rights? What loving parent would allow total strangers to be involved in intimate parts of their child’s lives without their consent? This makes no sense.
