Mike Dunleavy on Abortion



Most pro-life state, make it OK again to have kids

It's no secret to anyone that I'm a pro-life Governor, and my administration is ready to work with all of you over the next four years to achieve my goal to make Alaska the most pro-life state in the entire country. To that end, together we can enact policies like the Healthy Families Initiative for our people that are pro-children, pro-mothers, pro-fathers, pro-families. This may sound strange to some, but we have to make it OK again to have a family. We have to make it OK again to have kids.

Let Alaskans vote whether or not abortion is protected right

[On abortion rights]: "I like many Alaskans, am pro life," Dunleavy said in a news release. "I also recognize that many Alaskans are pro choice. I will therefore be introducing a resolution for a proposed constitutional amendment to the Legislature in the next session to answer the question whether abortion shall, or not be a constitutionally protected right."

Sponsors bill to bar abortion providers from teaching sex ed

The Alaska Senate pushed forward a controversial bill to bar "abortion services providers" from teaching sex education in schools, and require parental permission before children could be taught any sex education. The bill doesn't mention Planned Parenthood by name, but that organization is a favorite target of social conservatives.

The Senate Bill 89 is sponsored by Mike Dunleavy. Since last spring, Dunleavy's bill has sat dormant in the Senate Rules Committee. But chairman Charlie Huggins held a hearing and passed the bill on to the Senate floor. "We either have schools that are for education or we have schools for indoctrination," Dunleavy said. "Parents don't think we should be sending our kids on the bus to be intercepted by groups who have an agenda." The action on the bill drew immediate objections from Planned Parenthood and allies of the organization, which teaches sex ed to more than 2,000 children in Alaska.
