Anchorage Alaska, September 7th, 2016 – Alaska’s only Statewide group focused solely on the pro-life issue released an endorsement this morning of US Senate candidate Joe Miller. The endorsement comes on the heels of the announcement from Miller that he will again be challenging US Senator Lisa Murkowski, one of the nation’s most notoriously pro-abortion Republicans.
“Miller has consistently held a pro-life position and has viewed the tragedy of abortion as the genocide that it is” said Christopher Kurka, Alaska Right to Life’s Executive Director. “Once elected he will continue to be a true champion for the pre-born in the US Senate. Joe Miller is exactly the caliber of man we need fighting for the weakest of Alaskans in the Senate,” Kurka continued.
With the general election only a little over 7 weeks away, Kurka said he is “calling on every life-loving Alaskan to throw their support behind the only pro-life candidate for US Senate. It’s time for Murkowski to be replaced with someone who will take their oath of office seriously and do whatever they can to end the genocide of abortion that is taking the lives of millions of the most vulnerable of Americas populace – the pre-born.”
Murkowski is well known as being a pro-choice Republican, earning a 80% approval rating in 2014 from NARAL Pro-Choice America. Murkowski defends her support of Planned Parenthood, the organization that just last year was exposed in undercover videos showing their illegal sale of baby parts, by saying ” I believe Planned Parenthood provides vital services to those in need and disagree with their funding cuts…”
“Senator Murkowski should remember that there are other organizations out there whose sole mission is to assist women in need, especially those in unplanned pregnancies. These organizations don’t receive federal funding and they offer their services at no cost to their clients. Planned Parenthood is an abortion marketing machine and certainly doesn’t have the best interest of women at heart.” Kurka said later.
“We are excited to have a pro-life option on the ballot for US Senate this November and appreciate Joe Miller’s willingness to take on the fight once again. Alaska Right to Life’s Political Action Committee is proud to endorse him.” Kurka finished, reminding voters that election day is Tuesday, November 8th and adding, especially for loyal Republican party voters, that “principles should win out over political parties every time”.
