A national movement has finally hit Alaska. This movement seeks to extend Constitution protection to the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” to the unborn. Given former Governor Sarah Palin’s avowed pro-life stance, one wonders if Governor Sean Parnell will add his voice in support of this initiative?
Thus far, Parnell has stood firm on Palin’s policies and even moved forward with a few of his own. Parnell has strongly advocated support for education by promoting an educational policy that would give those with a B average a choice of college or a technical vocational school. He has supported increasing the Village Public Safety Officer program, encouraging increased recruitment to fill vacancies in the program. He also called for increasing the Alaska State Trooper presence to an additional 2 troopers in Bethel, a regional hub, an additional 2 troopers in Nome and one in Nome. At the AFN convention, he also called for increased education along with increased enforcement to curb the endemic of violence and sexual abuse in the villages. Parnell has also called for increasing tax credits to the tourism industry to try to stimulate that sector of the economy. Unlike Sarah Palin, his predecessor, Parnell has yet to speak out on the issue of whether or not the State should be in the business of killing babies in the womb.
The impact of this initiative would raise the awareness that sex has consequences. At present, the female under U.S. law may abort a pregnancy, even if her spouse or male partner disagrees with that decision. Statutory rape in many cases of minor pregnancies goes unreported, as Planned Parenthood, which opposes this initiative, has time and again ignored the law in such matters, counseling always to abort the unborn in such cases. Never once, counseling to prosecute for the abuse and victimization of the minor female.
Statistically, it is rare for a 13 year old girl to be impregnated by having sex with a minor male. The male’s age in such cases seems to run from 18 to 42, with the average age of those males victimizing young girls being in the 20s to early 30s. Even Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, that icon of the ACLU, has advocated that the age of consent for females be lowered to 12.
This victimization of the underaged female, and the failure of society to remark or to react with condemnation point to the success of the goal of the liberals who want to use our children for sex toys. This success is marked by the revealing clothes young girls wear, MTV, the ever younger indoctrination of our young in public schools about sex and alternative lifestyles, and the advertizing and music that they are inundated with. The exploitation and current depravity of Britney Spears is heralded as a role model for young girls. In schools, girls display colored bands to denote what they are willing to do or what they have done sexually.
Abortion is part of the desensitization of society to the taboos associated with how we view and treat our young, subject to our individual and societal moral compass. Which compass is usually a product of exposure to religion at some point or another. After all, we term our system of religion and law Judeo-Christian.
The homosexual agenda shares in the goal of the liberal establishment that seeks to breakdown morality and the family to accomplish recruitment for casual sex at ever younger ages. One of the most notable examples is the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA), supported by Kevin Jennings, President Obama's director of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools (OSDFS).
Another byproduct of abortion is the current illegal migrant worker situation. These are foreign nationals that are in the U.S. illegally, who are taking jobs, benefits and resources that are rightfully the purview of the naturalized U.S. citizen and their children. Abortion has created the demand for labor by terminating approximately 45 million Americans before birth, too many in the last trimester of the reproductive process. We have killed those before they are born who would otherwise be there to replace an aging and diminishing U.S. workforce.
Abortion has created paradoxes in our law that has resulted in the paradox of those who kill the unborn being hailed by the liberal establishment as heroes. On the other hand, the unborn who is considered viable, but killed in a car wreck caused by a drunk driver becomes a victim and subject to the protection of the law as a count of manslaughter or second degree murder.
Our governor could define his moral compass to the Alaska public by speaking in support of this initiative. Let us hope that he does so in the near future.
