After repeatedly warning that state tax dollars must be used to pay for abortions, Alaska Governor, Mike Dunleavy, took the money from the court’s budget.
You want abortions? You pay for them.
Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant..
In an awesome (and rare) display of how the checks and balances of the three branches of government are supposed to work, Dunleavy flexed some executive branch muscle by stripping $334,700 dollars from the Alaska Supreme Court budget, which was precisely the amount the state has to spend on helping parents murder their kids, thanks to the state’s Supreme Court rulings.
“In a line-item veto of the state’s budget, the governor’s office explained, The Legislative and Executive Branch are opposed to state-funded elective abortions; the only branch of government that insists on state-funded elective abortions is the Supreme Court. The annual cost of elective abortions is reflected by this reduction.” Beautiful.
Alaska Family Action, which supported the action, said, “Ultimately, our goal must be to ensure that no agency of state government is paying even one cent to destroy life,” AFA continued. “The best way to accomplish this permanently is to amend our constitution to make it abundantly clear there is no right in the state constitution for abortion or abortion funding.”
Continuing, the AFA said, “But while we work on that long-term goal, Governor Dunleavy deserves credit for calling out the court on their radical record. In defiance of the constitution, liberal justices have pretended they have the power to appropriate money, even though appropriation power is expressly reserved to the Legislature. Now they will deal with the consequences of exceeding their authority. As we read in the book of Proverbs (16:18), ‘Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.’”

“Daily, the work at Pulpit & Pen is filling the void of places where 100 men once stood and that is not an exaggeration. Day in and day out, they tirelessly vet offerings and influence of ministries around the world that they may guard the little sheep from the least to the most damning of errors. This is hard, unappreciative and alienating toil...
“JD Hall and his contributors such as Seth Dunn, are almost single-handedly leading the way in a rescue attempt of conservative Evangelicalism and especially the Southern Baptist Convention.”
