Abortion Is NOT Family Planning
Today Representative David Eastman and Senator David Wilson presented HB 308 and SB 162 to their respective bodies that will prohibit the State of Alaska from using or distributing Title X Family Planning Funds to any company or organization that performs or operates any facility where abortions are performed. Representative Eastman’s HB 308 was co-sponsored by Representative George Rauscher.
Why is this important?
Abortion is NOT Family Planning
Therefore, tax payer dollars should not be spent with Family Planning Providers that participate in killing innocent preborn babies. Why?
Abortion is NOT Family Planning
When an unintended pregnancy is the result of a failed attempt at Family Planning, the Service Provider should then ensure a healthy delivery of a healthy baby from a healthy mother. But if the Service Provider also performs abortions (kills innocent preborn babies), then the State of Alaska has paid for a failed Family Planning Service that results in an abortion – a dead baby.
So what exactly are Family Planning Services? Take a look at the side-by-side comparison of definitions below:
Family Planning Services
|“Abortion” means the use or prescription of an instrument, medicine, drug, or other substance or device to terminate the pregnancy of a woman known to be pregnant

What’s the impact?
The current Alaska Department of Health and Social Services Title X Grant is $580,000. Restricting those funds from abortion providers gives innocent preborn babies a better chance at life while protecting their mothers from the devastating effects of abortion.

Protecting ALL Innocent Life
A final note on protecting ALL innocent preborn babies in Alaska: when passed, HB 308 / SB 162 will restrict funding, restrict abortionists’ access to Family Planning Clients, and thereby save some innocent preborn babies from being killed in their mothers’ wombs.
The goal and mission at Alaska Right To Life is to protect all innocent human life, from conception to natural death.
The Alaska LIFE At Conception Act, HB 250 defines babies in the womb as natural persons from the point of conception, so that the rights and protections that you and I enjoy – mainly the right to life – are extended to the preborn from the point of their conception.
