The 5-4 Supreme Court June v. Russo decision to strike down a Louisiana law mandating basic medical safeguards in the event of abortion complications was utterly predictable. This column could have been written months ago when Alabama, Louisiana, Ohio and a host of other states passed laws severely curtailing and even completely outlawing abortion. Borrowing a page from the absurd and childish 1992 Casey decision, the court under Chief Justice John Roberts declared itself an...

“The fourth rule is: Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. You can kill them with this, but they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.” (Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals, 1971). This rule is one of 13 set out by Alinsky as tactics to seize power. The 13 are the progressive playbook that have been used repeatedly to destroy opponents, or,...

The Alaska Judicial Council – a small but powerful group that controls placement of all judges in Alaska – says it wants to hear from rank and file Alaskans regarding the suitability of 22 judges up for retention this year. After hearing from Alaskans and soliciting feedback from lawyers and court workers the council will give its recommendations on whether you should keep or oust certain justices on Nov. 3. Conservatives have long complained it’s...

Abortionists in Alaska legally resumed surgical abortions on May 4 as state health mandates prohibiting non-essential procedures were lifted. But it appears as if the largest provider of abortions never stopped, despite direct orders to the contrary. On April 7 Gov. Mike Dunleavy issued an update to a health mandate, specifically listing surgical abortions among dozens of other non-urgent procedures that had to be temporarily suspended as the state built up medical supplies to deal...

Starting on May 4, clinics that provide non-emergency, elective surgeries can resume operations in Alaska, this includes elective abortions. On April 7, Gov. Mike Dunleavy put a temporary halt to all elective surgeries and procedures in order to build up critical medical supplies, especially personal protective gear, for doctors and nurses working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. During an April 15 press conference, Dunleavy said the temporary ban was no longer required as...

In an effort to drum up religious support for continuing elective abortions during the COVID-19 pandemic, Planned Parenthood’s clergy board is calling on “people of faith to speak out in this moment of crisis and affirm that access to abortion care is a religious value.” Planned Parenthood clinics across the country have been either closed or ordered to cease elective abortions in a nationwide effort to reserve critical medical supplies for doctors and nurses fighting...

Last month U.S. Congressman Dan Lipinski of Illinois was narrowly defeated in the Democratic primary. The last pro-life Democrat who remained in the U. S. House of Representatives, he was long targeted by the progressive pro-abortion wing of the party. For years, so many Democratic office holders and politicians have “evolved” from pro-life to actively pro-abortion that the number of pro-life Democrats finally came down to one. “Evolving” is a term that politicians with no...

There are no press releases, live-streamed media conferences or glossy websites to report the number of unborn babies killed through abortion each year in Alaska. Instead, these deaths are quietly posted in an obscure section of the Alaska Department of Health & Social Service’s website under the title: “Induced Termination of Pregnancy.” Last year 1,270 unborn Alaskans died by abortion, down slightly from 1,283 killed in 2018. Most mothers who underwent an abortion were unmarried...

Planned Parenthood has endorsed pro-abortion candidate Al Gross in his campaign against Alaska U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan. While running as an Independent, Gross is backed by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and has received support from the Democratic National Committee. Planned Parenthood, which performs the majority of abortions in Alaska each year, hailed Gross as a “champion” who will resist President Trump and Sullivan – both of whom oppose taxpayer funding of abortion and support...

One day after including elective surgical abortions as part of a statewide ban on non-essential medical procedures in Alaska, Gov. Mike Dunleavy spent a large portion of his April 8 press conference explaining why abortion clinics were not exempted from the mandate. The goal in halting elective surgeries, including abortion, stems from a need to stockpile personal protective equipment (PPE) for first-line doctors and nurses who are treating COVID-19 patients, the governor explained. “We’re all...
