IT IS TIME FOR ACTION IN OUR LEGISLATURE AND EXECUTIVE OFFICE

I understand there is a great deal of confusion among our elected representatives from the Governor to the most recently appointed House Representative.  Allow me and Alaska Right to Life to clarify things for you:

The Life At Conception Act has been refused a committee hearing for nearly three years because Planned Parenthood endorsed and funded Democrats chair the House Health and Social Services Committee (HSS) and continue to violate Rule 24(a) of the Alaska State Legislature Uniform Rules which requires committees to act on all bills referred to them.

On January 29, 2020, only nine House Republicans voted in favor of moving the bill out of HSS to another committee which may have acted on the bill.  The rest of the House Republicans aligned with Planned Parenthood’s proxies in the House and prevented the bill’s move.

I understand the bill will not pass in the current legislature, but babies waiting to be born deserve to have the bill presented, debated, and voted on according to the laws and rules of our representative form of government.

I am especially disturbed to know that Republicans voted against moving the bill because they did not have full knowledge of the bill’s contents or that they did not have advanced warning of the motion to move the bill.

Since this was a procedural vote – and not a vote on the merits of the bill, these excuses absolutely inexcusable.  

If our Republican representatives cannot vote on a simple procedural move to allow the Life at Conception Act to be debated, how can we ever trust them to stand for life and vote correctly to pass or oppose the bill on its merits?

Moreover, we did not send Republicans – who claim to honor the party platform and advocate for protecting children from the moment of conception – to Juneau on our behalf to vote their beliefs.  We sent them to vote OUR BELIEFS, chief among those is that babies must not be killed.

it is time to end the spend on abortion and refuse to pay for a single baby to be killed

it is time to end the spend on abortion and refuse to pay for a single baby to be killed

Two court decisions define the debate under which Alaska’s legislature has prohibited abortion funding 12 times in the past 18 years – yet every abortion invoice submitted on behalf of a Medicaid recipient has been paid.

Our legislatures have surrendered their constitutional authority to control spending and define the limits of privacy in the state for over 20 years.

Our attorney generals have regarded their own opinions as precedent to follow instead of submitting to the law and our constitution.

Our governors have hidden behind the courts’ decisions and orders no matter how extreme or unconstitutional those decisions are.

If our governors decide they aren’t willing to protect babies waiting to be born, they should have the courage and integrity to veto budget amendments that prohibit abortion funding rather than signing those prohibitions into law and neither enacting nor enforcing the bills they sign into law.

planned parenthood sues to kill more babies

planned parenthood sues to kill more babies

Acting on their insatiable desire to kill babies for profit, Planned Parenthood has initiated a lawsuit against the State of Alaska and the Board of Nursing to force the State to allow Nurses and Midwives to perform abortions.

Why would Planned Parenthood want to expand abortion procedures to midwives? 

Simple:  PROFIT. 

A midwife or nurse-midwife is far less expensive labor than a physician, making the profit margin for abortions much better, and possibly allowing more abortions to be performed as well.

Every member of the Alaska Board of Nursing has been personally and individually named in Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit.

The Board of Nursing members need to know their elected representatives and the State of Alaska will defend them and babies in court.

It’s time to make the Life at Conception Act law and I am calling on you to perform your duty and exercise your authority as my elected representatives to face the difficult but worthy task of being a voice for the voiceless in our state’s government.

It’s time to defend those who can’t defend themselves, whose rights and protections were stripped from them by previous legislatures, governors, and the courts.

It’s time to prevent the expansion of abortion into Alaska’s midwiferies, stop paying for babies to be killed, and it’s time to make the Life at Conception Act law and bring an end to abortion in Alaska.

Most urgently and sincerely,
