The Alaska Watchman is keeping a close eye on the Alaska Legislature this session in order to alert Alaskans of measures that impact parental rights, sex education, abortion, religious liberty, human sexuality, education, marriage and family law, pornography and other social issues. Our goal is to keep Alaskans informed of committee hearings and opportunities to publicly testify on critical legislation that could shape the cultural and social life of Alaskans.

While Planned Parenthood is reeling from the loss of millions of dollars in federal Title X funding, the abortion business has actually expanded its reach in Alaska. According to the annual nationwide survey by Operation Rescue, Alaska added one new abortion clinic last year, bringing the statewide total to five. Each year, Operation Rescue contacts every abortion business in the United States, gathering detailed information about their services. The latest survey occurred in November and...

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. The governor’s administration, however, is expected to appeal the decision to the Alaska Supreme Court, which could delay the campaign. …many of the key supporters are abortion activists and other...

Planned Parenthood, Alaska’s largest provider of abortions, held a strategic planning session on Jan. 7 in Anchorage. The event took place at Writer’s Block Café where a “We Support Planned Parenthood” sign stood in the window. About 30 people came, including Anchorage Rep. Andy Josephson, Anchorage School Board candidate James Smallwood and Alaska House candidate Janice Park who is running for Anchorage seat 25. Also on hand were several Alaska Watchman allies. Here’s what they...

Abortion activists in Juneau are hosting their annual LunaFest film festival in an effort to raise funds to promote abortion across Alaska. The event also aims to celebrate the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion across the nation – leading to more than 61 million deaths of unborn babies over the past 46 years. The annual event is hosted by the Juneau Pro-Choice Coalition, an activist group that tries to...

The ability to peer inside the womb and see clear 3D images of a baby sucking its thumb, smiling and moving its tiny arms and legs is changing the pro-life conversation in Alaska and around the country. Over the past couple years, many of Alaska’s 11 pro-life pregnancy centers have added or upgraded their ultrasound machines to give mothers a window to the baby growing inside them. “It is amazing – the only thing more...

As editor of Alaska Watchman, I sign up for emails from many different groups. Normally, I light up when someone wishes me “happy birthday.” That wasn’t the case when I saw this greeting the other day. “It’s you! Happy birthday month, Joel, from all of us at Planned Parenthood. We believe everyone deserves access to comprehensive healthcare … and that everyone deserves to be wished a happy birthday (throw in some cake too)!” It concluded with, “Thank...

A recent article in The Seattle Times reported that the Planned Parenthood affiliate overseeing Alaska is one of the most successful in the nation, and it is expanding its influence into pro-life areas of the country. Chris Charbonneau, who oversees Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands, aims to expand her affiliate’s reach into Indiana and Kentucky, both traditional pro-life states. Her affiliate already covers Alaska, Idaho, Western Washington and Hawaii. The...

Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski is seen as a key ally in Planned Parenthood’s effort to remove President Donald Trump’s new rule regarding Title X federal funding for groups that provide health care.
