The pro-life HeartReach Center, which has offered support to pregnant Alaska women for more than 30 years, is holding its annual fundraising banquet on Oct. 17 at Wasilla Bible Church in Wasilla. The event features keynote speakers Derrick and Julie Tennat, the brother-sister duo behind The Love Chromosome, an organization that promotes the inherent dignity of those with disabilities. According LoveChromosome.com, Julie has Down Syndrome, a condition caused by having an extra chromosome. Her grampa...

Despite growing concern over childhood obesity and the excessive time youth engage with digital devices, Alaska educators are encouraging teens to spend even more hours on violent and sexually suggestive video games through organized, multiplayer competitions. While the World Health Association (WHO) listed video game addiction among the International Classification of Diseases, a number of Alaska high schools have embraced the world of electronic “sports” in which teams of players train, practice and compete in...

Alaskans from all walks of life will gather again this fall outside of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in Anchorage and Soldotna to peacefully pray for unborn babies and to help mothers choose life. The upcoming prayer vigils, Sept. 25-Nov. 3, are part of an international campaign by the group 40 Days for Life. Each fall, for the past 13 years thousands have gathered outside of hundreds of abortion clinics across the country. More than 60...

Proponents of doctor-prescribed suicide — or assisted suicide — have so far failed to bring the deadly practice to Alaska. But crucial battles lie ahead. And Alaska’s isolated disabled, elderly and poor — the biggest targets for an inexpensive “final solution” — are most at risk. Doctor-prescribed suicide is the practice in which doctors distribute lethal drugs to patients for the purpose of suicide. Patients receive a powerful barbiturate like secobarbital — a drug used...

Most journalists I’ve met like to believe they are objective and balanced in reporting all the news fit to print. This mindset is so deeply ingrained and fiercely protected that reporters just take it for granted — of course they’re objective. In reality, however, writers, editors and publishers are just people, which means they have special concerns, interests, passions and blinders. They all come with a history and set of beliefs that guide and shape...

Each year, the state of Alaska quietly releases an obscure report detailing the number of unborn babies who were aborted the previous year. Buried in the Department of Health & Social Services website the “Induced Termination of Pregnancy,” report reveals how many children were aborted and at what age, as well as the age, race, education level and marital status of the would-be mothers, and the method of payment for the abortions. The data is...

Legislation is in the works to protect Alaska’s adoption agencies and child welfare providers from discrimination for declining to provide services that conflict with the provider’s deeply held moral or religious beliefs. In a letter to supporters earlier this year, Alaska Family Action President Jim Minnery said his non-profit Christian public policy organization aims to advocate for such a law in the next session of the Alaska Legislature, which begins in January. The planned Alaska...

Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski is a national focal point in the heated debate over who will replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the U.S. Supreme Court. With President Donald Trump nominating Brett Kavanaugh to the high court, pro-abortion activist groups in Alaska and around the nation have put pressure on Murkowski to vote against Kavanaugh for fear that he might rule against aspects of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that helped make abortion legal in...
