Something very disturbing is unfolding the wake of George Floyd’s death. Protest marches demanding justice broke out across the nation – an understandable response when an unarmed man is degraded as he suffers and dies in the street. But this righteous indignation has been harnessed by opportunistic political activists for purposes that have little to do with racial justice for blacks. Hardened abortion activists, radical gay rights groups and anti-capital socialists are trying to co-opt...

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...

Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy joined other governors around the country in ordering a halt to surgical abortions unless done to preserve the life or physical health of a woman.

COVID-19 is, among many other things, a conversation starter. It touches nearly every part of life and has shed some unexpected light on what we most value. Here are few observations from the past week. JUNK FOOD & SPIRITUAL SUSTENANCE Last month, Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz published his list of “essential” entities that should remain open to cover the most “critical” needs of the city. Hospitals, law enforcement, grocery stores all seemed reasonable, but the...

Jessica Cler, the Alaska director of Planned Parenthood, sent a notice to the abortion business’...

Alaska, like most states, has ordered a halt to all non-essential surgeries. Despite the emergency order, Planned Parenthood in Alaska is continuing operations as normal. The state is concerned that non-essential surgeries are taking up valuable medical supplies needed to fight COVID-19, and now pro-life organizations in Alaska are urging Governor Mike Dunleavy to enforce his mandate with respect to abortion clinics. “We have reached out to the Dunleavy Administration and are awaiting a response...
