Abortion activists wield signs and a sword during a protest outside the Governor’s Mansion in Juneau.

Several dozen pro-abortion activists marched to Alaska’s Governor’s Mansion in Juneau to demand that Gov. Mike Dunleavy take down a pro-life flag that he flies next to the U.S. and Alaska flags.

Chanting, “Our rights, our choice,” the protesters snaked through the State Capital – whooping and screaming as pedestrians looked on.

One marcher, dressed in Game of Thrones’s styled battle garb, wielded a large metal sword, which she jabbed into the air while joining the cacophony of voices railiing against any effort to protect unborn babies from abortion.

Organized by Juneau Pro-Choice Coalition, the June 22 rally took place two days before the second anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling, which struck down Roe v. Wade and let each state decide whether to ban, limit or regulate abortion.

While the ruling did nothing to change abortion law in Alaska, the activists were intent on using the lighting-rod issue to drum up leftist political fervor in the lead up to Alaska’s November general election.

The fight is not over, but we made some noise today!!!!!!!,” a Facebook post from Juneau Pro-Choice Coalition stated. “I can’t believe it be TWO years since Roe v. Wade was overturned on Monday. Crazy times….”

The physical target of the protesters’ ire was a pink and blue pro-life flag, which Gov. Mike Dunleavy flies in front of the Governor’s Mansion to affirm the dignity and rights of the unborn. Protesters called it “the anti-choice flag flying at the Alaska’s people’s house.”

Created by the Pro-Life Flag Project in 2021, the flag is now a universally recognized symbol for the pro-life movement – an image that seeks to unify, brand, and raise awareness for ending abortion.

The flag designed by the Pro-Life Flag Project is flown around the nation, including at the Governor’s Mansion in Juneau.

According to the Pro-Life Flag Project website, the banner design stresses the message to “Love them both,” meaning the mother and her unborn baby. The white background symbolizes non-violence in the womb as well as the innocence of the unborn child, while two baby feet represent the humanity of preborn babies. Two pink hands represent the pregnant mother, holding and protecting her child, and two stripes highlight that there are two distinct human lives present in a pregnancy – mother and child. The stripes also form an “equals sign,” stressing that the unborn child is equally and fully human, and therefore deserving of equal human rights.

This message appeared intolerable to the Juneau protesters, who waved homemade signs as they marched.

One woman, in heavy dark makeup and wearing a low-cut gown held aloft a sign stating, “I can’t be trusted with choice, but you trust me with a child?!”

Other signs read:

“Pro-choice is not anti-life.”

A young child holds a pro-abortion sign during the June 22 abortion march in Juneau.

“The hardest decision a woman can make is not yours.”

“Abortions save lives.”

“People you love need safe abortions.”

In a somewhat ironic scene, two young girls sitting in a stroller held a sign that read, “If you don’t want an abortion don’t have one! But leave me ALONE!!”

Democratic State Sen. Jesse Kiehl, of Juneau, used the rally to drum up support for U.S. Rep. Mary Peltola, who is seeking a second term in Congress, while campaigning on her radical pro-abortion record. He urged pro-abortion activists to volunteer for phone banks and door knocking to help elect Peltola.

“We need to turn out pro-choice, pro-freedom voters here in Juneau to tip the balance in a statewide race,” Kiehl said. “Help Mary campaign.”

The activists then resumed their chanting, “We vote pro-choice!”

    I’ve always said, what if your Mother aborted you.
    Stop the stupidness, abortion is the killing of an innocent life.

  • Lobo says:

    According to the article, one protester wielded a metal sword, and jabbed it into the air… No consequences ? … That is a weapon, right ?

  • Bess says:

    It’s a lovely flag. The colors and design are so perfect.

  • J.S. says:

    I wish these fools would just run off into the ocean and retroactively abort themselves. Save the kids; abort liberals.

  • Windhover says:

    What a profoundly diminished understanding of womanhood on display. Shame on these women for perpetuating the myth that our lives are somehow incomplete without engaging in hookup sex and being at liberty to kill our children.

  • Steve Chappell says:

    Every Pro Abortion protestor needs to stop saying this is a healthcare which killing a living being is not health-care but murder

  • James k Johnson says:

    Yes, the pro baby-killers want more sacrifices for their God of Convenience! Would they have preferred to have been killed by their parents?

  • jon says:

    Pro choice gives women the right to regulate their own bodies. I’m pro women.

    • Tamra Nygaard says:

      Prochoice gives the woman the option to murder her baby. The baby is not the woman. The woman can regulate her body to either get pregnant or not get pregnant. After that, the choice is either life or murder. Please try again.

  • mhj says:

    Pro choice gives women the right to regulate their own bodies y not having unprotected sex. Pro choice gives women the right to murder another human.

  • Gary Ohmer says:

    It’s funny everyone of them is alive – go abort yourself

  • Kasey says:

    Wow! They talk about “tolerance”. Who demanded they stop displaying the rainbow flag in classrooms? no one! Who demanded that folks not to fly the Palestine flag? no one. Freedom of speech. So why can’t the gov display a pro-life flag? Can’t we all just get along?

  • John J Otness says:

    Ive noticed that everyone that is for abortion has already been born…Ronald Reagan.

  • Mongo Like Candy says:

    The heathen do rage!

  • Shelia says:

    I was adopted. My mother could have aborted me instead. With all of the various flags that fly, I wonder why the gov can’t be allowed his viewpoint as well? Is freedom of speech only for these women and their democrat friends? We all need to step back and learn to respect everyone else and their right to free speech. Also, the flag is really beautiful. Don’t surrender, Gov!

    • Paul says:

      God Bless my mother and may God rest her soul. I am 77 years old, I was adopted at birth and have lived a good life.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    I was driving down 5th avenue in Anchorage today and noticing the alphabet soup group flags flying on buildings. Thinking about the Anchorage Assembly members flying the alphabet soup group flags on their desks. Funny thing is that I did not see any protesters standing in front of those buildings protesting the flags. I have not read about any protesters standing outside of the Anchorage Assembly meetings protesting the Assembly member desks flying the alphabet soup group flags. Either we ALL get to fly our flags OR none of us fly these flags on government properties.

    They will “ALL” Stand before The LORD for their abominations!!
