On Feb. 18, members of the Health & Social Services Committee in the Alaska House sat through a presentation featuring teenagers from Anchorage and Juneau who have been recruited and trained by Planned Parenthood to disseminate the abortion business’ line on abortion access and LGBTQ ideology to school age children around Alaska. Teen Council is a program launched by Planned Parenthood to use teenagers to deliver the abortion business’ sexuality advice to students. As part...

Seven senators in the Alaska Legislature are now co-sponsors of a resolution stating that Alaska’s Constitution cannot be construed as establishing a right to abortion. On Feb. 14, Republicans Senators David Wilson of Wasilla, Mia Costello of Anchorage and Mike Shower of Wasilla joined Sen. Donny Olson, D-Golovin as co-sponsors of Sen. Shelley Hughes’ Senate Joint Resolution 13, which states that nothing in the State Constitution may be “construed to secure or protect a right...

On Feb. 11, Republicans in the U.S. Senate initiated the process to vote on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to ban most late-term abortions on babies past five months gestation. It does not, however, protect babies conceived through rape or incest despite the gruesome nature of the practice. Republicans also began the process to vote on the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act that requires basic medical care for babies born alive during failed abortions....

A video (watch below) on the Alaska Bar Association website shows what appears to be an attempt by the chief justice of Alaska’s Supreme Court to enlist lawyers in influencing public opinion on behalf of a lawsuit over which he may ultimately preside. The video reveals Chief Justice Joel Bolger telling members of the Alaska Bar Association to write letters to the editor and post articles on Facebook to counteract what he called “attacks on...

Sen. Peter Micciche of Soldotna and Sen. John Coghill of North Pole are now co-sponsors of Palmer Sen. Shelley Hughes’ resolution clarifying that there is no right to constitutional right to abortion in Alaska. Senate Joint Resolution 13 states that nothing in the State Constitution may be “construed to secure or protect a right to abortion” or abortion funding. The resolution is currently in the Senate Health & Social Services Committee. It has yet to...

While the federal budget will certainly look much different by the time it works its way through Congress, President Trump has proposed a budget that strips federal funding from abortion providers. Sen. Dan Sullivan and Rep. Don Young are generally considered reliable pro-life votes. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, however, is highly regarded by Planned Parenthood for her willingness to break with the Republican party and support public funding of abortion clinics. Released Feb. 10, the president’s...

Target, one of the largest retailers in the country, has three stores in Alaska – two in Anchorage and one in Wasilla. Shopping there, however, comes with a hidden cost according to 2ndVote, an organization that scores businesses based on their support of hot-button social issues like abortion, same-sex marriage, religious liberty and others. “Even though Target is extremely popular, buying products there undermines your values based on their continuous support of the leftist agenda,”...

A bill to establish that all Alaskans, from the moment of conception, have a natural and protected right to life remains stuck in the Health & Social Services Committee (HHS) after a failed vote to move it out last week. Rep. David Eastman’s House Bill 178, known as the Alaska Life at Conception Act, recognizes that all Alaskans, born and unborn, are entitled to equal protection under the law. The legislation would outlaw abortion, including in...

In 1980 Ronald Reagan got my vote and that of many Alaskans because he was pro-life. His sweeping victory had Democrats, feminists and abortionists figuring it was all over for them. Reagan Democrats were essentially pro-life anti-communists. Both enemies and friends of Reagan expected – something. North Carolina’s U.S. Senator Jesse Helms introduced a Human Life Bill, in essence exercising the Congressional prerogative found in Article III, Sec. 2 of the Constitution. Then in 1982...
