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...

In his Feb. 12 address to a joint session of the Alaska Legislature, Chief Justice of the Alaska Supreme Court Joel Bolger alluded to the court’s ongoing dispute with Gov. Mike Dunleavy regarding cuts to the judiciary’s budget following high court’s order that Alaska fund elective abortions. He closed his speech saying the courts “must continue to decide cases in accordance with the facts determined by impartial judges and the rule of law based on...

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...

Faces of Choice, a group that aims to bring awareness of the survivors of abortion, says it has attempted to purchase a 30-second Superbowl ad that shows the faces of people who have survived an abortion.
