Sen. Shelley Hughes kicked off the legislative session on Jan. 21 with a pro-life resolution to amend Alaska’s Constitution by clarifying that “nothing in this constitution may be construed to secure or protect a right to abortion or require the State to fund an abortion.” If approved by two-thirds vote of the House and the Senate, it would then be placed on the ballot for the Nov. 3 general election. If a simple majority of...

Planned Parenthood and other left leaning groups must pause their campaign to remove Gov. Mike Dunleavy from his elected office. On Jan. 21, Anchorage Superior Court Judge Eric Aarseth put a halt to the effort until the Alaska Supreme Court has a chance to hear an appeal from the Stand Tall With Mike groups which is defending the governor and challenging the recall push for lacking legal grounds. The Anchorage Daily News published Judge Aarseth’s...

For those willing to engage in a frank and open discussion about abortion, the upcoming “Brave Conversations” event in Anchorage is the place to be on Jan. 23. The monthly event tackles a range of hot-button topics such as global warming, cultural privilege, faith issues, parental rights, school vouchers and other cultural, moral and philosophical ideas. The gatherings are not about shouting down an opponent or brandishing rhetorical swords. Rather, the goal is to foster...

Planned Parenthood was a prominent promoter of the pro-abortion/anti-Trump march in Anchorage on Jan. 18. The abortion business joined forces with other far-left liberal groups for the third annual Women’s March. The event came just four days before the 47th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Roe v. Wade which legalized abortion across the nation. Since then, more than 65 million unborn babies have been legally killed in the U.S. Planned Parenthood, which provides...

On Jan. 10 the Recall Dunleavy group won its latest court battle when Anchorage Superior Court Judge Eric Aarseth dismissed arguments by state lawyers that grounds for the recall were legally flawed. With the court victory, Dunleavy’s opponents can resume their attempt to remove him.

Almost 40 years ago, when beginning involvement with the prolife movement, I recalled what a national leader said: “The only way to overturn a Supreme Court decision is with a constitutional amendment.” He was a physician, not an historian nor constitutional scholar. It says reams about the ignorance of basic citizenship regarding the Constitution, and our history, that such statements could pass with unquestioned acceptance then – as it did with me – and are...
