Petition To End Abortion Funding in Alaska

 

Alaskan taxpayers paid for more than half of all abortions in 2017

 

  • Since Governor Walker took office, taxpayer funded abortions have increased 34%, even though the number of abortions has decreased every year!

  • 635 of 1,255 abortions were paid for with tax payer funds in 2016.

  • 228 of the 556 tax payer funded abortions were performed on high school or college age girls.

  • 76 of the 556 tax payer funded abortions were performed on underage miners.

  • 6 of the tax payer funded abortions were performed on girls under 15 years old.

Those targeted for tax payer funded abortions include the most vulnerable  among Alaska’s young women.

  • 36% of abortions paid for by the State of Alaska were performed on women under 24 years old

    • 11% of those girls were in junior high or high school

  • 31% of the abortions paid for by the State of Alaska were performed on young Alaska Native women

    • 73% of the abortions performed on Alaska Natives were paid for by the State of Alaska

    • When polled however, Alaska Natives are among the most pro-life people in Alaska.

  • When the State of Alaska pays for an abortion, your tax dollars are often spent on travel, lodging, and dining expenses as well.

    • When the State of Alaska pays for a later term abortion, the expenses your tax dollars pay for often include travel and lodging to Seattle or other outside cities.

Because abortion takes the life of an innocent preborn baby and permanently harms her mother, the evil and immoral act of abortion must be prohibited in all forms in Alaska.

The State of Alaska must, therefore, never pay for any abortions, abortion related services, or travel.

Additionally, the State of Alaska must never engage, contract with, or compensate in any way, any person, organization, or corporation that solicits, refers, performs, or has any interest in performing abortions in the State of Alaska or any state, country, or territory outside of Alaska.

 

Therefore:  I, the undersigned, call on Alaska’s Governor and all Legislators to do everything in your power to immediately and permanently end any and all funding for abortion, abortion related services, or travel.  Additionally, the State of Alaska may never engage, contract with, or compensate in any way, any person, organization, or corporation that solicits, refers, performs, or has any interest in performing abortions in the State of Alaska or any state, country, or territory outside of Alaska.
