A group of Catholics will gather at the Soldotna Planned Parenthood abortion clinic later today to pray for righteous government, law and order and pro-life protections for the unborn. Organized by members of the national organization, American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property, the hour-long rally will start at 5:30 p.m. Participants will pray the rosary as they  process from the abortion clinic to the Kenai Peninsula Borough Building about a block...

In these days of Alphabet Madness (COVID, LGBTQ, BLM, CHAZ), many Catholic bishops of the Western world fall lockstep into bizarre inconsistencies. Despite their oft-displayed role as shepherds with their mitre-and-crook and ceremonial affairs, many often assume the disguise of a wolf in sheep’s clothing. We’ll start with the abortion issue. Only rarely are Catholic politicians, who loudly and proudly display their devotion to Roe v. Wade, denied the holy sacraments. This despite clear directives...

The event may be virtual, but the running is for real. FYNDout Free Pregnancy Center, a pro-life outreach in Fairbanks, is holding a virtual run for life on Aug. 22 to help raise funds for its pro-life outreach. The pregnancy center has operated in Fairbanks for 30 years, providing free pregnancy tests by trained registered nurses, free ultrasounds and medically accurate information so women can be fully informed about all their options. The center also...

Rep. Gary Knopp, R-Kenai/Soldotna is weathering a tough primary campaign to retain his seat in the Alaska State House. His conservative credentials are suspect after breaking with fellow Republicans to create a bi-partisan majority coalition in Juneau which is mostly led by Democrats. In addition to sabotaging what could have been a Republican majority, Knopp’s decision to join with Democrats, along with the delay this caused in forming House leadership, effectively sidelined any pro-life legislation...

The Planned Parenthood chapter that oversees four abortion clinics in Alaska is celebrating its perceived successes over the past year. This includes the death of thousands of unborn babies through abortion and the delivery of powerful hormones to make people appear as the opposite gender. According to its annual report, Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and Hawaiian Islands – which manages abortion clinics in Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho and Washington – brought in more than...

At 58, Roger Holland’s first stab at public office is to run against one of the most powerful politicians in the Alaska Legislature – Senate President Cathy Giessel. In vying for Giessel’s District N seat in Anchorage, Holland said he wants to bring a reliably conservative Republican voice to Juneau. Giessel, a Republican, has been under steady criticism for helping create a majority caucus that has squeezed conservative legislators out of key committee assignments while...

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 effort to recall Gov. Mike Dunleavy from office may proceed after the Alaska Supreme Court ruled 4-1 on May 8 that grounds for the potential recall election were sufficient. Chief Justice Joel Bolger did not take part in the State Division of Elections v. Recall Dunleavy case, after having admitted to making public statements that could cause a reasonable person to wonder whether he could impartially rule on the merits of a case. On...

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...

Leslie Becker, a pro-life, fiscal conservative in Ketchikan is challenging Rep. Daniel Ortiz for his seat in the Alaska House of Representatives. Becker serves on the Ketchikan School Board and is the former executive director for the town’s chamber of commerce. According to her campaign website she is also committed to protecting unborn human life. “I believe protecting life from conception to natural death is required in moral law and is our duty to protect...
